    « rest stop »

    We stayed twice during our road Trip to and from South Carolina. The check in process is prompt and the staff are very quick in the process. The rooms are clean comfortable. They have fridge and microwave in all rooms. Free WiFi . Great free breakfast with a large variety of food to sit and enjoy or grab to go. This location has a fitness room, pool and conveniently located by several restaurants and gas stations. Definitely would stay again. Great service by all hotel staff.

    « Good hotel, Good location »

    This is a good hotel at a reasonable price. It is located at a stopping point where we needed it, also close to the I-295. We had stayed here before and found it very convenient. We will stay here again if convenient.

    « Great Handicapped Room »

    Very large and nicely set up handicapped bathroom. Very quiet even on first floor next to conference room. Breakfast was very good and with great selection. Check-in and check-out was very courteous and as quick as possible. Nice baggage carts.

    « Overnight stay »

    We needed somewhere to stay halfway on a trip to see family, and this fit the bill. For the rate of $81, we had a nice, clean room with 2 queen beds in a non-smoking hotel. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was located right off of Interstate 295! It's not a fancy place, but if you're looking for a clean, decent place to spend a night for a reasonable amount of money, this is it.

    « Heading South »

    We always stay here on our way to SC, and some times on the way north. Had a little mix-up at check-in, but the desk person was great and got us into a king room similar to the one we reserved. Breakfast overall turned out good, but with one person trying to cover the front desk and taking care of breakfast, we had to wait a while for eggs and sausage to be ready. A little confusion with the waffle maker as to which cups to use to make the waffles with. We're used to having the proper cups right there and not having to guess which ones to use. Overall, still a good stay, and we will definitely be back.

    « Great value »

    This is not a luxury hotel, but provides excellent value for a budget-minded traveler. Breakfast is included, with sausages, bacon, & eggs along with usual cereal, pastries, waffles, & fruit. Rooms are spacious and clean, and have a mini-fridge. Staff are very friendly. Free parking, and convenient location. Pool is only open for summer season.

    « Clean and quiet »

    Nice hotel. Clean, comfortable room and good breakfast. Quiet location with easy access from highway. Nice pool and staff were professional and helpful in locating restaurants. We would stay here again.

    « Great hotel and an equally great staff »

    The room was spotless. It was nice to see hotel staff members smile and say hello to a guest. This was our second stay at this hotel. We will, without hesitation, stay there again on our next trip to the area.

    « For those going to school »

    So the staff is incredible, very polite and as helpful as they can possibly be. Rooms are always clean tidy. The problem lies in the internet service. Your phone downs at 15 mbs, the hotel is 0.02 mbs. Absolutely terrible, equipment is old and extremely slow. In today's society as reliant as we are on technology and Internet I don't see how this is acceptable. A very serious upgrade is without a doubt necessary.

    « hotel experience »

    This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at. I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Hopewell, Va. The staff is very friendly, helpful and just really nice people. Its clean and well maintained. Breakfast if also very good.

    « Extremely poor service »

    came to stay here for a wedding with my family. The receptionist said she could not find our reservation nor did they have any rooms left. This was unacceptable as we drove over 120 miles just to get there. The receptionist just said sorry as they overbooked their reservations for the entire weekend. She said we were welcome to wait and see if anyone cancels. We were not waiting. Luckily the Econo lodge was available. Tip for future guests , call many times to confirm your reservation.

    « Left my laptop! »

    Stayed for a family wedding. Stayed two nights. Had drove home and then realized that I had left my laptop in one of the drawers in the room. Called and they said they had it at the desk and it was safe. We drove back and it was returned back with everything in the case! The hotel was clean and fitted with all of the basic amenities. The breakfast was good and the staff was nice! Would stay here again!

    « The trip was aweful - poor sleeping conditions »

    I traveled to Hopewell, VA for a wedding with my family. For the value, the rooms were not good. My sheets were dirty with dust stains on them and bug track marks. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Tip for anyone coming to Hopewell, stay at Fairfield inn, much better for the value.

    « Two Nights with Sticky Spots »

    Arriving late and tired we entered our room unpacked, kicked off our shoes and that is when I stepped into something sticky on the carpeting. After looking more closely I found another sticky spot. To tired to call anyone I just laid a wash clothe on the spots so that I would avoid getting sticky feet. The next night we returned to a clean room but the two sticky spots remained. That means that the cleaning attendants had to have picked up the the wash clothes off the carpet but never cleaned the spots away. Not good.

    « Good place to stay »

    Convenient location, friendly staff and clean room. Breakfast so so. Have stayed at other BW's and their presentation and quality better. We have stayed here before and will return in future travels, Check out person worked so that I received $50 promotion from other stays.

    « Good choice for stop over when traveling »

    This hotel is good choice for a stop over when traveling. The room and entire hotel seems well maintained and clean. The bathroom was probably the cleanest hotel bathroom I've seen. The continental breakfast was above average for a small hotel. The reason I'm not giving a 5 star rating is because the pool had so much hair floating in it that I wouldn't get in. Also, the pool area seems to be a smoking area, which I didn't enjoy. Perhaps a designated smoking area could be made away from the pool. Overall, this hotel is a good value.

    « Very bad »

    I stayed at the best western plus 2 weeks ago while me and my freind were on our way to Virginia beach. We were super tired so thought lets just stay over see the area relax. We got a double room , price was not bad, staff was friendly. The room on the other hand, was not great. Before choosing best western we looked at the reviews and it seemed Hopefull, but we were wrong. While resting for a few hours I felt something crawl on my neck !! Right away we complained to staff ,got only half our money back and left. Never again, I'd rather drive 2 more hours then rest at that place.

    « family gathering »

    our family meets there every year. great hotel, great rates, used the conference room to visit with family. breakfast staff and continental breakfast is excellent. Hotel books full often so reservations a good idea. we had to wait for a room to be cleaned but housekeeping allowed us to check in as soon as a room was cleaned. very accommodating especially with the family with about 6 rooms all or most on the same floor.

    « Friendly Staff/Excellent »

    We had a very nice stay at Best Western Plus in Hopewell, VA. The staff are very friendly. The breakfast was excellent (you can make your own waffle, sausage, bacon, eggs, cereal, yogurt, nice pastries, etc). The room was very clean.

    « Good staff »

    There was a problem with my reservation but the front desk took care of it right away! The pool is outside and not heated. It is the best hotel in the area. The only real negative is getting in and out of their parking lot is a bit of a challenge.

    « Nice for a night »

    Recently stayed here with the family for a night during a road trip. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly, and breakfast was decent. Would recommend if you need a place to stay while traveling. Very easy to get to from 95. There are gas stations and convenience stores right across the street, which also makes for a smooth stop during a road trip.

    « Confortable - Clean & charming »

    It's tricky to get into the parking lot, but check in is fast and the staff was more than friendly and helpful! Breakfast provided a good choice for a smaller hotel, and the staff member replenishing the food items was fast. The pool was clean and the parking lot was well lit. You will enjoy your stay at this Best Western.

    « Couldn't be better! »

    This Best Western was a great selection. The room was large, immaculate, AC was powerful, and lots of amenities including a fitness center and pool, free in-room wifi, iron, ironing board, nice refrigerator, coffee machine, microwave, and sitting area as well as the usual desk and chair. And take note of the bedside lamps that have built-in phone chargers in the base (that work even when the lamp is off) so you don't have to crawl around looking for an outlet! The front desk staff were delightful, so friendly and helpful. The location is just a few minutes in every direction from the thruways and Civil War sites. A convenient, nice buffet breakfast was included.

    « Well managed and maintained hotel »

    I was very impressed by how clean and well maintained this property was, as well as by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at the front desk. The room was spacious and we slept well. That said, it does share some limitations that we've observed at other Best Westerns, namely limited breakfast fare and exercise equipment that hasn't been programmed properly and hence is difficult to use.

    « Best Western Hopewell, a great place for sightseers »

    I stay here often because amongst other things, the standard of service is always dependable, and it is not far from the highway (I-95) If you are a history buff, there are a myriad of things to see, and there are restaurants close by

    « Great Room for the Price »

    We booked this hotel in advance because we were traveling to Dinwiddie for a music festival. It was a good thing we did because there were no vacancies when we got there! We checked in late because of the concert and actually the Front Desk had called to make sure we were still coming. We brought 2 extra people and they made sure we had extra towels. Breakfast was great - definitely worth the money!

    « Bed Bugs »

    My family and I arrived at this hotel at 11 pm with a reservation. We got into our room and there was white sand all over the table but we were so tired from a long drive I disregarded it. The room was dated and there was a huge patched hole in the bathroom door. Once we fell asleep a fire alarm went off at 4 am and woke us all up. Just as I was about to turn the light back off I noticed something crawling on my pillow. It was a bedbug. I stay in hotels at least once a month for travel but this is the first time I have ever been in a hotel with bedbugs. I had a welt on my neck from being bitten. I went downstairs to the front desk and told the woman I wanted a refund and we were leaving immediately. We packed up and went into the lobby only to be told she couldn't issue the refund until hours later because she didn't know how to do it. She was very nice and I know she felt bad but I was not staying in that hotel another minute. At 4:30 am we checked into another hotel. I never take the time to review hotels but I had to warn other people to be careful of this hotel.

    « Convenient Loacation »

    Have stayed at this Best Western before. Stall helpful, rooms clean and location conveniently located off Rt. 295 exit 9A. Civil War sites close if interested in that sort of history. Will be back again when have more time to walk battlefields.

    « Rooms very nice »

    Our room was very clean & very nice. The staff was friendly...but the hotel seemed dated and dark. The lobby area and where the breakfast was served always seemed dark. I think if they kept the TV and lights on in the breakfast area on it would definitely brighten up the place. As soon as 930 am hit they cleared out everything, cut off TV & lights. No real place outside of your room to sit etc.

    « Top Hotel »

    Stayed here overnight on the way to College of Charleston. Great hotel with clean rooms, friendly staff and hearty free breakfast. Will be back on next trip for sure. Front desk staff was very helpful, was nervous at first but Trip Advisor reviews helped me. This location is a gem!

    « Great Base for Exploring »

    This hotel was perfect for exploring the Civil War sites near Petersburg and Richmond -- clean, convenient to the interstate and sights, and with incredibly friendly staff who recommended a great local restaurant. Highly recommend!

    « Clean, Comfortable and Convenient »

    Our stay at the Best Western in Hopewell VA provided a very convenient place to stop in our drive down the east coast to Florida. The hotel and room was very clean and well take care of. The breakfast was well stocked with a variety of items. The internet was quick and reliable. The people checking us in and out were very friendly and helpful

    « Bestwestern is consistent »

    This hotel is very well located just off Interstate #295 with restaurants really close by. Excellent place to stop for Snowbirds heading back to Canada from Florida. Rooms are spacious and well decorated. Bed was very comfortable and we would recommend this BestWestern Plus to anyone.

    « Probably the best choice in this area »

    We stayed at this place on a trip north. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We checked out 2 other hotels in the area before settling on this place - both seemed rather run down. Our room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good.

    « Excellent choice. »

    This is my go to hotel when I'm working the Richmond area. Worth the extra miles to travel for the quality and value. Rooms are clean and nice and the staff are always friendly and professional. Well worth the money.

    « Mixed Experience »

    Checked in near midnight during a long trip. Front desk experience was slow and painful. She seemed very confused about everything. Maybe we were all tired. Room was clean. Bathroom fan sounded like a jet engine. Could hear water running loudly in pipes in ceiling all morning. Strange odor throughout stay - a combination of must and smoke I think. Pillows were terrible. Nice carpeted stairwell offered good alternative to elevator. Breakfast was pretty good with a wide variety. It wasn't very busy. No one seemed to be around to refill items but since it was slow that was ok. Overall a mixed stay. There are a few other hotels next door I might consider but for a short night it was ok.

    « Spring trip home »

    Stopped here once again on the way home to CT because we've never been disappointed in the past, and we were once again very pleased with our stay. The king room was clean, roomy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, but the hot foods needed just a quick few seconds in the microwave, to get them warmer. Presentation was good, and selection was very nice. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

    « Good room and welcome staff »

    I was welcomed at the reception desk and the room was ready. A loud person, perhaps someone in boots, paced above but I was surprised at how little it disturbed me. I thought of calling the front desk but could think of little else than the business at hand. Fortunately, it did not disturb an otherwise good stay. Very nice staff.

    « A Welcome Break on a Long Journey »

    I have stayed at this location many times over the last 16 years. There is a selection of room sizes to suit families. When you ask for a roll away it is waiting for you. The staff are very welcoming and the waffles at breakfast are delicious. It is our home away from home.

    « always great staff and stay »

    Met family from FL VA SC. Staff very courteous, professional, accommodating with all of us visiting in the breakfast lounge. Our room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. Bathrooms were spotless. The price was reasonable and in line with other hotels. Near a large Army base, FT. Lee so book early. There was a "no vacancy" sign on the door but you wouldn't know they were full... unless you look at the parking lot and the neighboring hotels.

    « best stay ever »

    great staff, easy check in, clean rooms, best rate. just a wonderful place to stay. will continue to make this our home away from home. Met family in lobby/breakfast room and they turned on the juice machine and made coffee for our family visit until late at night.

    « Great stop over on the way to S.C. »

    The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. The breakfast buffet saves time and money when traveling. We visited the buffet around 7:30 AM and a lot of the selections were gone. The eggs were cold and gross. The room was nice but too cold. we had trouble regulating the heat/air. we had a problem with odor the last time we were here but it was corredted and the company's management contacted us to appologize.

    « Great Value, Clean Hotel »

    This hotel was such a nice place to visit a friend stationed at Fort Lee. It was clean, everyone was nice and the room was great. They even let us check in early which helped our busy day. Check out was a breeze and the stay was very affordable. We would definitely stay again!

    « Left next door, came here »

    Checked out of the Fairfield next door after listening to a dog bark repeatedly. Didn't even unpack as the dog barked from the time we walked down the hall and while we were in our room across and down the hall could still hear. Good for Pet Friendly travelers but not for me. Went right next doo to the Best Western Plus and they accommodated us with no problem.

    « Absolutely Horrendous Experience! »

    We booked a one night stay at the Best Western Plus in Hopewell Virginia using the online booking capability on the official Best Western web site. We had been driving on Route 95 for roughly twelve hours and were in serious need of a place to spend the night. I had looked on Google maps using my cell phone and located what appeared to be a reasonably priced and available room for that night at the Best Western Plus in Hopewell VA. I went to their website and booked, and paid for, the room with relative ease right on their web site. When we got to the hotel, the woman at the desk said there was no reservation there for us. She was not friendly or helpful or even apologetic that there was a problem, even after I showed her the reservation confirmation email that I had gotten directly from Best Western. It turns out that the night that was listed on the reservation that I was emailed was actually the following night and not the night that I had requested, online. When I pointed that out to the unpleasant woman behind the desk, she informed me coolly that she showed no reservation for me for the following night either and dismissively returned to reading her book. At that point I called the Best Western main reservation number and explained the problem to them. They told me that the reason that the hotel didn't know about my reservation was that their "two-way communication" between the main reservation desk and their hotels was "down". She also said that she didn't know how the wrong date was made for the reservation, but that it was now too late to change it or to give us a refund because it was already "in the system". This was apparently the same system that was down for any two-way communication. She then helpfully suggested that I pay for a second night so that I could have the privilege of staying the one night that I needed at their wonderful establishment. I am speechless at the lack of common sense and actual hospitality provided by Best Western both on-site at the hotel and on the phone with their main reservation desk. They were rude, unhelpful and unfriendly. I will never stay at another Best Western for the rest of my life, and I would recommend everyone else think twice as well. Horrible all the way around!

    « Nice people decent hotel »

    Everyone at the hotel was very nice and helpful. Check in was fast and easy. Booked thru Trip Advisor and got a good rate. Clean rooms and nice free breakfast included. Good stopover place from NY to SC. Easy to get to-avoids having to endure Richmond traffic!

    « Nice room, friendly desk clerk »

    We stayed just one night. We had a nice room with a king size bed. It was quiet even though our room was next to the elevator. The price was good and the staff was friendly. I thought the bed was a bit hard but my husband thought it was perfect. There were lots of pillows. It is also convenient--just off the highway. The shower head needs to be replaced as it is not dispersing the water well any more.

    « Going back south »

    Overnight on way to SC. We've considered 2 other hotels in the area, but thought, why mess with a good thing. We stop here on the way home and on the way south and have never been disappointed. Our king room is always clean, everything works the way it is supposed to and the beds are incredibly comfy. This last stay, the owner wasn't sure about our 3rd floor room being ready, and not wanting us to schlep all the way up there, just gave us an upgrade on the 1st floor. You just can't beat that for service. Breakfast is always good and has a nice hot selection of bacon, sausage, eggs and waffles along with other items all presented nicely. As usual, a very pleasant stay.

    « Hotel Visit Dec 2015 »

    This was a very nice hotel right off I-295, with a gas station/WAWA store right across the street and a plethora of other stores to choose from. So something for everyone. The hotel was rather clean and well kept. The staff courteous and professional. My one draw back is whoever was on the floor above us. Wow, they were pounding back and forth like drill sergeants or something...all through the night into the morning. Crazy. I would recommend staying at this hotel, which also offers a small gym and complimentary breakfast. Good value for price when we went and stayed.

    « Overnight going north »

    Overall, this hotel is clean, neat, reasonably priced and has a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is nicely presented and has a few hot items from which to choose. Had some trouble with the high speed internet which we hope is just a temporary thing. It's been just fine in the past. We'll surely be back.

    « Amazing! »

    This hotel was perfect and the staff is excellent. The breakfast was outstanding and offered several options. Very clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and furnishings new. The staff goes out of their way to assist in whatever you could need while traveling.

    « Nice stop on the trip to Myrtle »

    We stopped here on our way to Myrtle Beach. The hotel was just what we were looking for. It's what I expect from a Best Western. Beds were comfy, breakfast was standard fare and the staff were pleasant. Located close to an Italian restaurant. could walk there. I'd stay here again without hesitation.

    « Nice Place Nice $ »

    Would recommend this Best Western Plus to any friend or family. Good value, Staff was eager to please. Location was easy on and easy off Route Inter-State 95. Breakfast area was clean, well organized and maintained a pleasant appearance. Price was right too, very reasonable for an area round Richmond.

    « Good visit »

    We have enjoyed staying here. Our nephew is completing his military training there. It was nice to get up in the morning knowing you can grab nice food on the way out. I have and will continue recommending this hotel to oters.

    « Good value for the money »

    The hotel was nothing special, but better than average in this price range. Most importantly to me, my room was clean. The staff was nice. Bed was comfortable, pillows a little too firm/thick for my liking. Sheets comfortable, bedspread looked outdated, I always remove them and set them aside. Breakfast was adequate and began at 6:00 am so that we could jump back on the highway early which I appreciate. Coffee very good, and available in the lobby outside of breakfast hours which was nice. It has great proximity to 295; hotel is not right off 95, but is close by, a few exits up off 295 and gas station and services are right next store. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Trip South »

    We make it a point to arrange our trip south so as to stop here each time. Everything about this establishment is classy. Everything is clean, hot breakfast starts our day by putting us in a good frame of mind for the rest of our trip. Every time we stop here, the staff makes sure all is ok and should there be a problem or suggestion, they handle it graciously. We find the King room very roomy, clean, and nicely appointed. Always a great stay!


    Nice hotel appear very clean, good front desk met the qualify of customer service, room clean daily, It is more valuable then expecting. I will reference co-worker about this hotel when travel in this area

    « Friendly staff, very clean and close to Ft. Lee »

    I needed a place to stay that was clean, close to Ft. Lee and included breakfast. The Best Western met all my expectations. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean. Breakfast was very good (cereal, toast, bagels, eggs, sausage, fresh fruit, etc) and the staff kept it very clean and ensured that coffee, etc was always stocked. Would stay here again.

    « decent place to stay »

    The room was nice, and the continental breakfast was decent. The man at the front desk was very nice and helpful. It was a busy weekend, and one of our party cancelled, so we had to cancel a room and it wasn't a problem at all. The in-room wifi didn't work super well (it kept kicking me off and I had to keep logging back in). Overall I would stay here again!

    « Very Good »

    Very nice large rooms. Great location. Excellent staff and management that were always ready to meet any of our needs. I was more than pleased with the size of the rooms which made our stay comfortable since we had three adults in one room.

    « Picky hotel Queen »

    Check in was easy, rooms are very clean I check everything! Only thing that I had a problem with and some of you may is they go overboard with the clean air freshener! I think it's in the air/ system a little overboard I am a massage therapist by trade and use aromatherapy in my office. It's just a little to much for me. So if you have a sensitivity to smell this may not be the place for you. As soon as you walk in the door it's noticeable

    « suggestive ideas »

    Strict adherence to fire alarm procedures and permission to enter the building after alarm has been adjudicated. Next time will report to desk when late nijght guests be a problem but mite suggest when upstairs amongst guests that are trying to sleep to please be courteous.

    « Well Above the Average »

    A very clean hotel. Guest room was clean and neat. We inspect immediately after check-in. A television guide in the room. Amazing how many hotels don't have this simple item. The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable. Most people would probably like the pillows. I prefer flatter pillows. I am a tough person on cleanliness. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again. I will very likely stay here on the next trip. I was told that the radio/alarm clocks make water fall sounds, etc. but didn't try it.
