This place is just AWSOME as soon as you come in it smells clean not moldy . The rooms were nice and genuinely clean ! We also had a choice of where to park not like other places no where to park . I reserved a non smoking room and I genuinely got a NON smoking room . This place was perfectly centered by the freeways and places to eat , gas station and one more thing which is VERY important as well .......the staff was very friendly specially Stacey .........THANK YOU all so much for making our stay in Virginia a good one .

2nd trip to the area..liked the dull whirlpool

3 out of 5
by from Frederickburg,va
Posted Feb 7, 2017
Pros: Bed was Firm and has one of the strongest frames I have ever seen for a bed, especially nice (closed in) so no dust or other things can get up under
Cons: Bath tub/shower should have a SAFETY rail, Whirlpool curbs need to be cleaned.
Location: Mixed variety, Parks, Sports Arena
First trip didn't get to use Whirlpool, this trip I made it a point too. Whirlpool curbing could use some cleaning..., Whirlpool has no bubbles. . However surprising it has Strong water currents when you get in and move to the different locations in the pool. Not as much as other whirlpools I have been in but 30 minutes I still got an invigorating massage.

Foggy Conditions and Entrance obscured for hotel

2 out of 5
by from Fredericksburg,Va
Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: Pool and Indoor Hot Tub.. ( a bit dated but still functional although you have to come to Main lobby to utilize this) Firm- King size Bed Frame
Cons: Front Desk Clerk retraining
Location: Pocahontas State Park. Sports Plex Recreational Sports Park. @20 min from RIA airport . Close to Virginia State University.
This hotel located between Courtyard by Marriott, Super 8, Days Inn & Sign on the building confuses you into thinking entrance is shared with Marriott.. Well ; it isn't this Hotel has a very obscure entrance on Route 10 /West Hundred road) That is better viewed from across the street then when you are driving!. Drove behind property & there is Aluminum Black Fence all the way around property so you can't enetr from rear. If you miss the trun to get into this property you can't turn into any adjacent hotel entrance & get into this long and winding road entrance into this property. Not the view you want when arriving on a foggy night at 7PM and the country suites entrance sign is NOT visible cause it is 12 ft high but in the fog.... Then upon trying to check in the Front desk Clerk who would rather answer the phone then handle the guests in front of them says you don't have a reservation. Even when you produce papers from Expedia showing date, time, Itinerary # and Letter head that says you don't need to recheck or reconfirm reservation. [Female Clerk said with out a printed Itinary # the only thing I could do was contact Expedia Reservations systems #, she handed me an 1-877 # that I had to call on my own on my cell phone. THen when I reached expedia they pointed out I was indeed booked for that hotel on that date. Reservations was made under the Suffix of my last name (Jr.) Yet Female Clerk failed to see that on her computer screen

Definitely seen and experienced better. Very old style room. Pillows were worn. I don't like the one elevator setup. You are either wairing to go up or come down. Plus you can hear everything from the hallway. And the shower curtain smelled

The room was ok. The staff was ok. The room we reserved was a king and we were put into two queens. When I questioned the front desk they blamed the mistake on the third party reserving the room. We go moved but somehow in the computer we were not moved and it locked us out of our room the next day...we were scheduled to stay two days and they had us under a different name. Not regular size pillows in the room and the pillows we had were not comfortable at all.

Good choice

4 out of 5
by from Jacksonville, FL
Posted Jan 10, 2017
Pros: Price, breakfast, overall comfort.
Location: Cracker Barrell practically at your back door. That was good.
My room was clean and comfortable. i smelled smoke in our room even though it was nonsmoking room. My husband could not smell it. i know I could have asked for another room, but was just too tired. This is why Im giving 4 instead of 5 because overall the room was great especially for the price paid through expedia. The breakfast was good, coffee was good. Yes, I would stay here again. Oh forgot to mention there are yummy cookies by Otis S upon checkin.
