Overpriced, but a good location
Posted Apr 2, 2016
Pros: Good location. One mile from Colonial Williamsburg and about 5 miles from Busch Gardens.
Very nice staff at the front desk and the maids were even cheerful.
The breakfast had lots of choices and heaps of donuts, however the scrambled eggs were very salty. My kids loved the oatmeal.
Hot tub was good size and a great temperature.
The bedding was nice and comfortable. Big stuffed duvets.
Cons: The swimming pool is TINY. It has depth levels of 3, 4 and 5 feet only. It is about 2/3 the size of a normal swimming pool in someone's backyard, so it gets crowded with just a few people.
The workout/fitness room only has 3 machines to work out on - treadmill, elliptical and one more.
The hot water had to be set all the way over on the dial just to be warm. Pressure was good though.
The beds were comfortable, but if you are sharing, any tiny movement made by your bed companion makes a ripple of waves across the bed and will probably wake you up. It is very sensitive to movement. I checked under my bed when I left and saw that the mattress was literally touching the floor too.
The WiFi was very strange. It only allowed for 3 electronic devices to be connected per room at the same time. If you tried to connect a 4th device the hotels tries to charge you $4.95 per day. This was a problem for us with 4 people staying in the room, so just be aware of this rule.
Overall, I would not stay here again. I felt like $159 per night in the middle of the week was too high for what was offered
