Close to shopping

Posted Aug 31, 2015
Check in was pleasant the room was OK the beds were comfy. The bathroom the toilet continued running all the time and made a humming sound after you flushed it. 8th you are quiet you can hear the people in the next room talking or whatever. The breakfast was good but could be hotter if you had to warm up something you could but not the eggs. The pool was great. The room my family and I stayed in the chair was dirty looking and the TV Stand was cracked. Other than that it was an OK stay just not sure if we would stay there again.

Unplanned overnight stay

Posted Aug 20, 2015
I was looking for a rental in Newport News and ended up being there longer than expected. I found the Jameson Inn on Expedia for a great price. Clean room, friendly staff great free breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

Great value hotel on the rise ...

Posted Aug 8, 2015
Location: Mariner Museum ... City Center, Fountain Way shops and restaurants ... Poquoson Bay
We booked the Jameson for the value but were pleasantly surprised by the renovated, tasteful, stately decor. The staff was quick to help with courtesy and a smile. Our room 123 was spacious and conveniently right inside the side entrance which we could access with our key-card. The downside to the location is the noise from the pool and the folks who hung out in the lawn space outside the pool. Also the walls / ceiling allowed sound through. I would encourage the management to keep up the renovation work and replace the upholstered chairs - the one in our room and the ones in the lobby were stained and unseemly. You are well on your way to upgrading your facilities and perhaps attracting more diverse clientele. Keep up the great work.

The room was spacious, comfortable, and close to all the amenities I like. That's why I return every year, before they changed the name to Jamison.

Good option if you aren't picky.

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: The staff was very friendly, and the hotel had basic amenities.
Cons: See my experience narrative.
Location: The location was convenient for our purposes and is situated in an area with several other hotels.
If you're staying in the area for a short period of time and basically need a place to sleep you should be fine. If you are more discriminating when it comes to decor and higher-level amenities you'd better look somewhere else. Our room door didn't close properly (which we reported when we left). The carpet in our room was torn and stained, and wallpaper was coming down in bathroom. The room smelled very lemon-y but didn’t have a really “clean” smell. But for one night it was okay.

Convenient for what I needed

Posted Jul 20, 2015
The hotel was nice the staff was friendly. I just wish they had a better breakfast. Everything else was just fine I enjoyed my stay just was a little bit noisy due to all the kids in the building.

Central Location

Posted Jul 2, 2015
Pros: Easy to get to, quick access to highway and central to many attractions in the area. Clean and well maintained. Friendly staff.
Location: Busch Gardens, Historic Williamsburg, Virginia Zoo, Aquarium, great restaurants, shopping - quick access to
We stayed here on vacation for a week while meeting up with our son who is stationed at Langley AFB. The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant. From here we were able to go to DC one day (about 3 hour ride) and also take in all of the attractions in Williamsburg, Hampton and Virginia Beach area.

Yes those keys get tricky sometimes. If you have them next to a phone they go out, or it could have been a number of factors, but we do apologize for the inconvenience of both the ac and your keys. Thank you for taking the time to write a review!
