Stayed at this very old but well maintained hotel, minutes from Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. My family and I stayed for four nights and had a great time. The continental breakfast, a big pool, and the very friendly and knowledgable staff made it worthwhile. We were kind of needy, especially since we had a 2 year old, and they did everything they could to make us happy. Evonne was polite and made sure we had blankets, towels, and helped us with directions. Justin and Jen, the front desk clerks were extremely accommodating, even late night and early morning. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.
My room was terrible. I checked in late around 10pm on a wed. night. When i got to my room there were dirty towels in the bathtub. There was no toilet paper or soap in the room. I opened my room fridge to find over half of it covered in black mold. i told the clerk about it and came back to a room that smelled heavily of cleaner. the cleaner smell was hard to handle, but it was soon overcame by the smell of marijuana coming from another room. my entire room smelled of weed. terrible place to stay!
I had a good experience here. I found the staff to be very friendly, I especially thought the manager Tracy was very helpful. The breakfast was good, it is not the Cracker Barrel, but it was also free. I liked the indoor pool as well.

To the average person with a real life and real responsibilities, which I think is the category most of us fall under, when you decide to part with over a hundred dollars, it's generally a very substantial investment. Relative to spending a night in a hotel, you expect a certain level of quality at that price. Using this hotel as a measuring stick for value, one could be forgiven for thinking that amount of money could be easily found between the cushions of any given person's couch or underneath a car seat. Worn out from a day at Kings Dominion and undeterred from spending a little extra money to have a nice, clean, and comfortable room for the night, I decided to book a stay here, ironically based on the reviews from this very website. I called in advance and secured a king room. Upon my arrival, I was informed that the hotel was inexplicably overbooked on king rooms and I would have to be placed elsewhere. I was told by the overnight front desk clerk that he would go inspect one of the double rooms out back to see if it was ready. To his credit, he was a very courteous and polite man, and seemed genuinely remorseful about the inconvenience. When I got up to my room, my heart sank. The bathroom was straight out of a horror movie. The first thing I noticed was that someone had peed on the toilet seat; it had dried up and somehow had gone completely unnoticed by the housekeeping staff. (Tangent: Can we stop it with the U-shaped toilet seats? It seems to give some guys a false sense of confidence that they can pee without having to lift the seat. I don't care how good you think you are. You are NOT that good.) To continue on, the toilet paper holder was badly rusted, the towels were stained, the fan didn't work, the light was an uncovered and unsightly compact florescent light bulb, and the bathtub looked like someone with Parkinson's and chisels for feet had used it several dozen times judging by all of the paint that had been chipped out of it. After finishing up in there, I switched on the air conditioner only to discover it made a sound like someone was trying to make a smoothie out of nuts and bolts. I like to sleep with an air conditioner or fan running, but the noise was unbearable after a short time, so I had no choice but to switch it off. The pillows on the bed were comfy enough and offered decent support, though I couldn't help being distracted by the torn mattress cover. Upon turning the lights out, I discovered light pouring in from the window, because the curtains insufficiently covered it, and the door which had a sill you could slide a lunch tray under. The latter also had the added bonus of letting in a surprising amount of noise; if other guests were outside chatting or even just walking by, believe me, you knew it. The end result of this nightmare was about three hours of sleep. Had I stayed in the same room I did back in Doswell (not booking another night there feels like a horrible, HORRIBLE decision in retrospect), I could've easily been out for eight. I was exhausted. The noise and general discomfort I was in made it impossible to get even a smattering of decent rest. Not difficult. Impossible. Silver lining? Saving grace? The complimentary breakfast was good, offering everything from yogurt to bagels to waffles to sausages and scrambled eggs. The pool area also seemed nice enough, though using it meant having to re-enter and use the bathroom from hell, and there was no way I was about to do that. I also used the computer at the business center whilst eating breakfast and wondered if I'd somehow traveled back in time to the days of dial-up given the Internet speed. When I checked out, I was asked by the same man who had checked me in earlier that morning how my stay was. I elected not to go off in a rage-fueled series of diatribes. Why? Two reasons. One, I was preparing to spend the day at Busch Gardens having fun, and I felt subjecting the front desk staff to an angry tirade wasn't how I wanted to start my day off. Two, it would be pointless. No hotel that cares for one fleeting second about the quality of a guest's stay would offer a room in such an abysmal state. And if Quality Inn doesn't feel as though its rooms are worth their time, why should you? Oh, one more thing. I happily discovered itchy red welts on my legs when I got home after my day at Busch Gardens. I figured maybe some mosquitoes got me at the park, but after reading a few other reviews that have suddenly cropped up, it wouldn't surprise me in the least to learn I was besieged by bedbugs during the night. There's a saying that gets tossed around a lot when it comes to terrible hotels, and it goes something along the lines of "you're better off sleeping in your car." Folks, I speak no hyperbole here: You are better off pocketing your cash, sleeping in your car, and defecating near a tree than spending a night in this hotel. Avoid at all costs.
