Great hotel, staff is wonderful and love pets! Breakfast is fresh. Pool is clean. Check in staff is very efficient and friendly. This is my hotel of choice in Colonial Williamsburg. I will return and suggest it to my friends and family.

We arrived Wednesday June 18th the place looked nice. However when we got to the room it was NOT very cool. As the evening wore on it did not get any cooler. Went down to the desk and complained about the AC not working. They offered to give us a different room and went to check it out it
But was no better than the first, in regards to it being cool. Went back to the desk and they offered to give us a couple more but once more they were the same NOT COOL. Decided to stay where we were at and checkout in the morning after seeing a LARGE cockroach on the wall in the hallway. That sealed it I didn't want to stay there. The hotel is rundown and needs upgrading, very worn carpeting, tile missing from the floor in the hallway. So my advice is DON'T stay here!!

The accommodations were very good, but the WI FI was horribly slow. Aside from that we were pleased. Breakfast was very good also. This hotel is centrally located to all of the tourists attractions in WIlliamsburg.

We stayed at this hotel for a single night as part of a Busch Gardens visit. The suite we got had plenty of space…it was the 2 room configuration with a king bed in one room and a sofa sleeper in the other, with everything else being doubled, like 2 bathrooms, TVs, etc. The other good parts were the location, which was practically in colonial Williamsburg and a short drive to Busch Gardens, the friendliness & courtesy of the staff, and ample parking. The hotel needs some updating in the public areas, and the room had a little wear & tear too. The worst part was likely the sofa sleeper, which had a very thin mattress where you could feel every spring. Also, the toiletries were pretty minimal…just soap & shampoo. Conditioner & lotion should be standard. Finally, we were in 230, & the wi-fi was horrible. I called the front desk about it, & they mentioned the manager was aware & had "done something" to boost the signal. They need more repeaters or stronger ones. Some of the rooms in the middle overlook the pool area, so you don't have a good external window to pick up an outside cell signal, which compounded the difficulty getting good connectivity.

I would recommend this hotel for a stay, as overall I would say its a good value.

Room Tip: Ask where the wi-fi reception is strong, if that's important to you.

After I made the reservation to stay here on our way to our final destination, I read the reviews. Not one was complimentary so I was a little nervous. However our stay was quite wonderful, the room was perfect, the nicest I have had in a La Quinta to date. It was clean and such a bonus that they allow pets and at no extra charge. I would stay here again and again and recommend it to everyone I know without reservation.

This hotel is in the ideal place and the staff are knowledgeable about the area. We took the trip to visit Busch Gardens and this hotel is near the amusement park. We stayed in a room overlooking the parking area and there are many dog walkers. This was something we had to get use to because the hotel is pet friendly. However, the hotel provides access to the internet and a printer so you can print out important information one may need for a trip. If you are shopper the hotel is not that far from the outlets, maybe less than 20 minutes. Breakfast is provided at the hotel and the staff did a good job of providing plenty of breakfast items. Finally they have big well kept indoor pool. We would definitely return to this hotel. The lobby is nice and sofas are comfortable. The only problem with the exterior of the hotel are the flies. Sometimes enjoying the weather is difficult because of the flies that are near the sitting area. I don't know if its from the dog poop that I did not see on the premise but it might have been in the garbage can. The flies are a nuisance so if you want fresh air one might walk a bit further away from the hotel.

Room Tip: Do not get a room near the pool area. Floors above the first floor are not noisy.
