nice quiet hotel and convenient to where I needed to be. I have stayed at a lot of Best Western hotels this summer from Georgia to Alaska and each one has met my needs. I have used the points for stays and have had many good people help me get to where I needed to be at each location.

We needed a pet friendly hotel on our way to Florida. I called a couple and though their websites said they were, they were no longer. The best western was so we chose it, the staff was great, breakfast very good, rooms excellent. I would recommend.

For an overnight half way between NJ and SC, I stopped with my two children at the Best Western Plus Governor's Inn in Midlothian. Mostly, it was due to my traveling companion wanting to see her son who lives in this suburb of Richmond. It was a pleasant stay. The room was clean and comfortable. If you are on the... More

Staff was very helpful and the room very clean and comfortable. Had issues with the TV, but it was an easy fix thanks to Wil. Have observed the staff works together. A great thanks to Wil, for his support! Breakfast is great and the breakfast staff makes sure the guest needs are taken care of.

This property felt a bit dated, but our overnight stay was fine. Be aware that there is a relatively popular night club attached to the property. We were warned, so requested a room "away" from the club. (I understand things can get a bit noisy some nights). Things did get wound up while we were there with lots of clubbers,... More

Very good breakfast but the rooms seem to be a little out of date for the price point. There was peeling wallpaper in the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The area it is located in and the outdated rooms make this hotel over priced.

We had a block of rooms for a soccer tournament and the hotel was very accommodating, even when I had to cancel one night at the last minute and wasn't charged. The hotel itself has character built by the previous owner and has a castle/medieval look, but with all the amenities. We had a mini fridge, microwave, safe, coffee maker... More
