I wouldn't recommend staying here more than one night.2019-09-23"

Great stop.2021-06-28"

"Not a good stay. The AC didn't work well, so my room was too hot. We asked to move to another room, and our request was granted. I wasn't happy about the $25 hold on my credit card. We've stayed here before and enjoyed our stays, so I still recommend this hotel.2019-04-09"

The housekeeper was on the phone both days I saw her cleaning. The staff wasn't professional. We'll stay somewhere else next year.2018-09-25"

"I liked the motel room.2021-04-09"
"Not far from VCU. The motel was cheap, but you get what you pay for. The room was nicely laid out and had new flooring. The bed was terrible, though; one side was so bad that I could feel the springs. Rude people yelled and talked loudly outside my room at 3 AM.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
