We said goodbye to Virginia Beach after that scrumptious breakfast at Pocahontas Pancakes. We then headed to Williamsburg which was less than 2 hours away.
We checked in to Residence Inn which was part of the Marriott group. It was my first time to stay at a Residence Inn which was billed as an “extended stay” hotel.
The dining room was right at entrance across the registration counter.
The outdoor area was where free barbecue dinners were held.
Most of the rooms were suites. As usual I got the sofa bed.
The bathroom was pretty basic but it was clean and satisfactory.
What amazed me was the full size refrigerator, microwave oven, cooktop and dishwasher. There were also plates, glasses and cookware. It was like a serviced apartment.
Next to the free wifi the best thing about Residence Inn was the FREE full American breakfast buffet. Of course it wasn’t as good as Pocahontas but there was enough variety to satisfy everyone.

The most popular part was the waffle station where you make your own waffles.
The waffle batter was in a big metal container and dispensed into disposable plastic cups. A timer will buzz telling you when to flip the waffle maker.
Erin’s waffle didn’t come out as nice as the one below.

oatmeal and cereal
I literally squealed with joy when I saw the biscuits. My cousin La can’t understand my fascination with biscuits since she hates them. I love biscuits specially when they are hot and flaky. Biscuits don’t exist in Manila or Hong Kong that’s why when I’m in the US I eat it as often as I could.
biscuits and corned beef hash
eggs and tater tots
sour cream, salsa, cheese and jalapeno – for the eggs?
Now I know to look for a Residence Inn when I go on vacation. Nice fully furnished room, free wifi, and free breakfast. What more can I ask for?
