I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and it just doesn't seem to get better. It's ran by a family that lives on site, in the back office. Their personality when they greet new customers is "matter of fact"; it is as if they can take your money or leave it, to them it does not matter as there will be someone else that will stop and get a room apparently.
Their rates went up this year. A king size bed, with a mini fridge and an antiquated TV for $85 on a non holiday weekend seems a bit over the top- especially when this hotel is the furthest hotel outside of Williamsburg, VA.
I had an issue with a dirty toilet, (looked like mold- all over the toilet seat and lid) when I first entered my room (I always inspect my room when I first walk in). I went to the front office to tell them about it, the wife of the couple that runs the hotel, came to my room to clean the restroom. Less than 5 minutes, she was done and out the door. Not even an apology or an explanation.
This hotel issues you an actual key, not one of those digital cards (they used to, but I guess try went back to using a lock and key).
The pool is clean an adequate.
The breakfast area is very small and has just the minimal basics- no need to get up to eat breakfast, you aren't missing anything. Overall, it's an ok hotel, I just think the price of $85 is a little too high; after all, it's the Econo Lodge. Price should be more like $49-$65.
