Positive Reviews

Praise for pet-friendly policy

Reviewers traveling with their four-legged friends liked the way they could bring pets into certain rooms at this motel at no extra cost.

Upbeat about low-cost revamped rooms

Guests were largely keen on the modernized rooms with carpet-free flooring and fresh decor. Many said the rooms weren’t anything fancy but were more than satisfactorily comfy and clean for a quick stay. Those with in-room kitchenettes said they were well-equipped with the essentials for preparing light meals. Budget-minded guests were pleased with the usually affordable room rates.

Convenient roadside location

This property’s location just off US Route 13 and a short drive from the intersection of Interstates 64 and 264 appealed to visitors as it put them within easy reach of Chesapeake Bay beaches, local attractions and academic institutions. Downtown Norfolk was within easy driving distance and there were also gas stations nearby plus ample free parking on-site. Reviewers liked being a short walk from shopping and dining options plus a movie theater. Passengers using Norfolk International Airport liked the proximity of this motel to the terminal building, which was a short drive away.

Negative Reviews

Mixed feelings about customer service

Although many reviewers described personnel as pleasant and professional, others occasionally claimed they encountered unwelcoming or impolite employees who could have handled complaints more effectively.

Occasional cleanliness issues

Stained sheets and inconsistent housekeeping standards plus bedroom floors and bathrooms that could have done with a deeper clean were among the cleanliness niggles that bothered critics in some rooms. A few guests also claimed they encountered cockroaches.

Guests disliked Wi-Fi charges

It disappointed guests that they had to pay a nominal fee to use the motel’s Wi-Fi network, which was occasionally criticized for offering frustratingly slow speeds and an unreliable signal in some areas of the building.
