Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was our first year staying here, after having bad experiences with other places in the area. The man behind the front desk is very pleasant. The property is very clean, both inside and out. Check in was a breeze and check out took about 10 seconds. The towels were changed daily and extras were provided without having to ask. A/C worked great (very important to me) and water pressure was decent. We will be back next year.

I gave this a very good rating under the guidelines of the fact that this was a very inexpensive place to stay relative to all other hotels in the area. The rooms were clean and seemed a bit older, but our room was adequate . It is a very small property but very conveniently located to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The pool was tiny- really only good to get wet, not for true swimming of any sort. The breakfast was very basic with pre-packaged muffins, toast, banana's and cereal. If you are looking for very inexpensive and modest surroundings this is a good place. The room did have a micro and fridge, which was good. The bathroom was clean with some modern touches to an older building.

Stayed here on 4th July. Fairly average motel, nice and clean, free wifi and continental breakfast, short drive to the historical stuff. Absolutely fine if you're just looking for somewhere basic to rest your head.

We stayed for 5 nights, over the 4th of July holiday. The room and grounds were very clean and well-maintained. Despite the "real feel" temps of 100+, our room stayed nice & cool. The staff was very friendly & welcoming. Housekeeping was excellent; they even vacuumed our room during our stay. We have 3 kids, so that was much appreciated. The free breakfast saved us a lot of money, as did the microwave & fridge in the room. We would definitely stay here again!

There are 3 different Econo Lodge motels in Williamsburg, 2 of them on Parkway Dr. So, I wonder whether there are some "good" reviews on this particular hotel by accident? I read all of the reviews before booking this motel, and was surprised at how bad this property actually was. The price is good, but the rooms need major updating. The pool is the size of a bathtub. The breakfast was corn flakes and stale doughnuts. The orange juice was just orange colored water. When the motel is full, there are not enough parking spaces for everyone.

The only reason I didn't give this a terrible rating is that there were no bugs, and the girl at the front desk was super nice.

Room Tip: There is no elevator here, so if you have a lot of heavy bags, ask for a room on the 1st floor.

Stayed here for a second time, this time in early May.

Likes:
- The person who always met me at the front desk (was it Vimi?) was consistently pleasant and professional, even though I sensed that she was very busy balancing multiple demands.
- Located away from heavy concentration of hotels, restaurants and tourist traffic.
- Within short distance from the Colonial Parkway
- Wifi was easy to use and reasonably fast. When service was lost, management moved quickly to diagnose and fix the problem.
- The bed was clean and comfortable (with exception noted below).
- Bathroom was clean.
- Sink area was clean.
- TV and channel options were fine.
- Small fridge and microwave were much appreciated.
- Breakfast room was clean (food choices consisted of cold items, such as cereal and juice).
- In my opinion, the facility still offers excellent value.

Dislikes:
- Smell of cigarette smoke seemed to be able to find its way from a smoking room into our non-smoking room.
- Excluding the sheets, bedding was thin or felt very synthetic.
- Exhaust fan in the bathroom (Room 131) made noise but did not draw any air. Even using the air conditioner, the room always felt a bit damp.
- The air conditioner/heater was noisy and introduced a musty smell into the room.

Older motel but with clean decent sized room. In a quiet part of town, short drive to visitor center. Very reasonable price for a inexpensive stay. We just want clean and comfortable. Courteous staff. Average breakfast
