We pick this location based off of the ratings on this site and another. Nice thing about the place, you can walk to the Colonial Williamsburg.
We paid upfront for this hotel through Choice Hotels, which meant no refunds. did save $$$
Stay was June 2-8 2013
1) Floors are soooo old they appear to be dirty. We made sure we had at least socks on at all times.
2) Elevator sounds like it is ready to drop, extremely slow, you never know if the doors will open
3) Stairs? dark as hell stinks, dirty, narrow, and have to miss water pipes
4) Hallways dark and musty smelling
5) room dark and musty smelling
6) room had wall repairs recently done. How I know? They never painted the repaired section of the wall.
7) remote control to TV no back cover, batteries taped into place
8) took nearly 15 minutes to get hot water, so times it would get hot in a couple minutes. Like if you are the first person in the entire hotel (not room) taking a shower, you will not get hot water for 15 minutes.
9) mini fridge freezer looked like it had mold in it. The door would close unless you left up and pushed closed. we kept filling our ice bucket up to keep our perishables cool.
10) pool WAY over chlorinated. The water was practically white!
11) house cleaning only made the beds and picked up towels. We stayed 6 nights, not one day did the floor get vacuumed in the room. How i know? I split some of my Pringles on the floor. left it figuring they would just get vacuumed up. It rained on Monday. We had muddy shows Monday night and Tuesday night. The mud droppings still there when we checked out on Saturday!
Nothing about this hotel was Quality. Definitely not up to Choice Hotels standards
