    Under construction and very small Would not return

    NOT as advertised.
    When I booked it, all the amenities of the place were listed and were the reasons that I stayed there. When I arrived a was diss;pointed to find out the pool was closed, there was no bar and no restaurant. Everything was being renovated. They should have closed the place down. No amenities as listed. The breakfast consisted of coffee and 3 bananas on a table. The toilet in my room did not work properly. I needed to open the top to reset it every time. Very disappointing and I felt swindled.

    Very convenient location with the bonus on being able to park on the street. Nice rooftop bar to begin or end the evening! Desk staff friendly....

    Good stay, great location!
    This hotel is showing some wear from our last visit but we were told they are in the process of a major remodel. The front desk folks were pleasant , the room clean and comfortable and the location is awesome for us! I think they could improve on their room lighting and it would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room or coffee avail for free in the lobby. We will be back but excited to see the improvements!

    Overall.. good enough
    The location was convenient, the bed was very comfortable. The price was good. The room was generally pretty attractive. However, one of the nightstands had a big pile of dust and debris under it (big- im not a neat freak), and one of the faucet knobs fell off in my hand. Although the rest of the room was clean. In the middle of the night I got up to get a glass of water, and only blazing hot water came out of both taps! Weird. When I brought this to the attention of staff in the morning, the woman at the desk said “but ..was everything else ok?” (?!) That being said- if needed to stay in Williamsburg again I probably would stay here again.
