Stay here if you like roaches
This hotel was average at best. It was relatively clean but the wallpaper was peeling away in some spots and the bathroom door would not close entirely.
My biggest complaint was the roaches! I went to bed the one and only night I stayed here watching T.V. - with one light on. As I was watching T.V. i noticed something moving on the wall. It was a little roach.
After i killed it, I went to bed hoping that I would not see another one. But, as i looked above the headboard - one was crawling up the wall. I was completley grossed out and slept with one eye open for the rest of the night. Our room was on the first floor which may have been part of the problem. But there is no excuse to have bugs like that. Do yourself a favor and stay someplace else. This hotel was rated too high on this website by the other reviewers - and I consider myself a tolerant person when it comes to lodging. I would have given the hotel 3 circled had it not been for the roaches.
Very average clean and had a great time
As a usual hampton inn hotel guest I wanted to save some money on booking my vacation to williamsburg so I could do extra shopping at the outlets. We decided on the quality inn historic after reading reviews, visiting their website, and pricing every hotel in the area. We paid 85.00 a night which was a great rate. (book online for good deals). Here is my honest opionon of the hotel.
1. the room was spotless.....no dirt, mold, nothing. I did go down to the "weight room and game room" these have not been remodeled and I would not say the same for them but I didn't stay here to work out so it didn't bother me.
2. Breakfast choices....slim. I don't really eat breakfast so it wasn't a big deal. here were the daily choices. cinnimin roll, mini blueberry muffins, 2 cereals, bagels, oj and apple juice, and milk. if you won't a big breakfast included every morning go somewhere else...(However if you do the math on how much you save staying here you will be able to afford breakfast out any way with the difference.
3. pool was lovely. I didn't get in but it was very clean not extremely large but was never full. good place for kids.
4. location was good. I don't like fighting to get around so this hotel was off richmond rd. but I found it was easier to get in and out of this hotel than alot of others.
5. Pretty much all the hotels in the historic/ richmond rd. area are great locations.
I loved the hotel and can't wait to go back next year. We stayed August 11-14.
The Quality Inn - Historic Area is a good hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. The bathroom was on the small side, and there was an armoire instead of a closet, but other than that, the hotel was clean, sheets were changed daily and towels, soap, toilet paper, cleanex, etc. were refilled as necessary. The water pressure was good, and if you like hot water, this is your hotel. The water tended to get pretty hot if you turned it up, but if kept low, it was comfortable and still had good pressure. Our room had two beds with a desk, chair, tv, and armoire. The light on the table took a couple of presses to turn on, but once on, it was bright and turned off easily. For the price, we were satisfied and got a room for a week right outside of Williamsburg. This hotel and a couple others are right outside Colonial Williamsburg, some of the others tended to be farther away. Good Deal. I will stay again in the future.
Was hoping for a little more...
I'll admit I'm a bit of a hotel snob and tend to review hotel rooms harshly. The rooms at the Quality Inn Historic Area are large and spotlessly clean. The building is beautiful, and the greetings warm. However, the bathrooms are tiny, as are the towels, there are no real closets (just an armoire) and there are only three dresser drawers. The amenities are limited to two bars of soap and an ounce of shampoo. It's a great value for the money, but if you're looking for a touch or two of luxury, look elsewhere.
Great for this class of hotel
For a Quality Inn I thought this was a very charming hotel. IT is nicely kept and the rooms are large. The bathrooms were updated and modern looking. Our bathtub didn't drain well but at least the water pressure was good. We stayed 2 nights and missed the continental breakfast. At 9:45 i asked the front desk where it is located and he told me that it is only until 9 a.m. THat is way too early. It should at least be until 10! Woke up early enough the next day and was not impressed but free is free. There is an employee constantly refilling the trays so that is a plus. Long wait for the toaster. Check out was quick but the front desk girl was on the phone (personal call) and told me i'm all set. I get home and saw that i was charged $59 (i used points and had 2 free nights). But I called and the guy at the front desk who answered the phone was very apologetic. The charge was reversed. On a whole ,the place was great and I would defnitely stay here again. Location was great too!
Very nice hotel for the family
This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. When I booked the room I was a little uncertain because the price was very reasonable. However, everything about this hotel was pleasant. The grounds were well kept, the outdoor pool was clean and enjoyable and most importantly the room was very nice, it looked recently updated. The room was on the small side but was very clean and tastefully decorated. The continental breakfast was basic with cold/Hot cereal, pastries, bagels, toast, juice, etc...
This hotel is in a great spot with all attractions very close by as is food and shopping.
The whole family enjoyed the stay and I would definitely stay here again.
Nice, no frills hotel
I read the reviews on this website and selected this motel for my vacation based on the positive comments. I found everything I read to be true. The location is convenient, the staff was professional, and the rooms were clean as well as nicely decorated. We did not have any problems. About the only thing that wasn't that great was the continenal breakfast, it was only so-so.
Good location but otherwise just OK
I understand this hotel was recently updated and converted to a Quality Inn. I really didn't find much about this hotel that makes it stand out from any others. Some notable things: breakfast probably below average - just muffins and bagels, really nothing else. Restaurant on the 5th floor which is a pain too. Rooms had double beds - nice if they had been queen size. Another review said there was high speed internet (wireless?) It would have been nice if they advertised it because I didn't check and just assumed there wasn't any (no wired connection, that is for sure). An outdoor pool (appeared somewhat small) compared to the indoor pool right next door at the comfort. The room also was noisy (maybe it was just luck of the draw with noisy kids nearby). On the plus size, the bathroom, though small, was remodeled and was nice. The bathroom amenities were nice, the furniture was new. I would stay there again if the price was right, but it would probably not be my first choice.....
I had stayed at this hotel when it was the Williamsburg Center Hotel. I must say that the new owners really did a wonderful job renovating the property! I thought I was staying at a brand new hotel. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean. The staff is terrific and helped with copying and faxing some important documents. I travel alot on business and it was great to have a large desk and wirelss internet access. I will stay there each time I am in the Williamsburg Area.
Me and family came to williamsburg to visit and we stay at quality inn
historic. When i checkin the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. the property was outstanding. The rooms was nice and clean. my family enjoy it we will be back.
