Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Williamsburg/Busch Gardens Area
was just going to williamsburg for a quiet getaway, we picked the right spot! the room was nice and the staff was great very helpful with directions. the gazebo room grille was excellent-you must try one of those belgium waffles!! we will definitely come back during the summer and bring the kids!
Not so hot.
We cut our stay short. The hotel is just old and tired. The texture ceiling in the room was falling down. There was a loud buzzing sound in the hall all night. When we told the staff they just looked at us and said "HUH". Not very helpful. The carpets were worn. It just was not a good choice for my family.
My family would never again stay here the workers have no people skills, no hospitality,the place is dirty, no towels, ice machines were out of order, etc.. it was so bad we checked out early around midnight, manager refuse to give us credit for leaving earlier than planned. They simply dont care about their customers.
Very helpful staff, nice hotel
The staff at this hotel really goes above and beyond. They were very helpful with local information on attractions and restaurants and we were even able to buy our tickets at the hotel instead of waiting in line at the park. The room was clean and nice, definatley worth the price and the location was close to everything, we even walked to Water Country USA. Special thanks to Greg for making our stay pleasant, my kids had a great time, we will definatley stay there again!
Needs some touching up !
The vacation was June28,2004. The hotel is in a great location but it needs some touching up. For example we order some extra blankets they looked
like something from a thirft shop. Service was just ok very slow getting things so you end up going to get it yourself. I am a travel agent and would like suggest this hotel to my clients. But they really need to do some minor thing s to the hotel, ice machines not working on all the floors , only three floors, that's not good. Overall if somethings are taken care it would be a good hotel.
Will use them again!! Just Wonderful!!
We had family come in from Louisiana and did not have enough room for everyone. We were planning on doing the busch gardens, williamsburg thing so I called and made a couple of reservations for a few family members. They had such a great time!!!! From the location, to the staff, to the rooms, it was just an overall pleasure to be there and made things easier for me at home. I will recommend this hotel to everyone.
Very Nice Days Inn
I had a very nice stay at the Days Hotel in Williamsburg. It was right across the street from Water Country USA and close to Busch Gardens. The people were friendly and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Would reccomend this hotel
Had a great stay!!
I had the opportunity to stay at the Days Inn-Busch Gardens on Water Country Parkway with my daughter. I found the hotel to be clean, neat, safe and the service was very good. The location is ideal if you plan to visit Busch Gardens and Water Country.
Worst hotel ever
I stayed here one night in the off season for a decent rate. The staff was unattentive when I checked in, despite it being slow!
Upon arriving to my room I found some serious cleaning issues. There was hair in my sheets and the bathroom was filthy. I complained to the front desk and they offered to switch rooms. However they acted very indifferent to me and acted as if it was a common thing to have a room with dirty sheets and a dirty bathroom. I asked to speak to the manager. The girl at the front actually rolled her eyes. The manager seemed to not care very much and offered me a discounted rate for my troubles i would have preferred a full refund but she practically refused - apparently hair all over the sheets is not a good enough reason to give a full refund. I am not used to staying in a hotel that will not give a full refund if you are not completely satisfied or have such serious issues. I know I didn't pay much and you do get what you pay for but that still does not excuse the poor service and poor product that I was given.
Horrible Experience at Days Inn
The Days Inn on Water Country Parkway was the worst hotel my family has ever been to. We got there late and was given a room that was already occupied. Unfortunately, these poor souls didn't use their deadbolt and we walked in on them sleeping. The desk clerk was real nonchalant about it and without even an apology assigned us another room. We entered to find that there were no towels. We had to return to the front desk once again to get them, otherwise wait till morning. There were other problems - moldy shower curtain, large hole in the bedspread, remote didn't work and the air conditioner rattled. We politely complained to the manager the next morning and she seemed sincere about wanting to make things right. She lowered our rate for that one night and took the list of problems assuring us that they would be attended to. When we returned from the park, we found the bedspread and shower curtain were removed (not replaced) and there were no washcloths. The next day, we had no toilet paper - none. The next day we came back to find that our door had been left open. Luckily, nothing was stolen. The only highlight was the restaurant where we had breakfast every morning - both the service and food was good.
