I will be in Newport News with my two children and am looking for a decent hotel. Will will be on vacation. Will check out Busch Gardens and maybe the beach and the Living Museum among other things. I found the Residence Inn on St. Johns Road and the Holiday Inn suites on J. Clyde Morris Blvd. They "seem" nice and not too spendy. What are your thoughts on these two and their location? Is it a good / safe location? One better than the other? Thanks for the help!

My parents have stayed at that Residence Inn several times and have been very happy with it. It's in a very good, safe area--close to 64 and lots of restaurants, grocery stores, etc. I'm not familiar with that particular Holiday Inn, but J. Clyde Morris can be sketchy in areas--I'd go with the Residence Inn.

I stayed in the residence inn for a whole weak. The staff were very friendly towards me even before they knew that I was the brother of an employee who worked there. In other words they were cordially unbiased. The hotel is also clean with a nice home feel to it. More over, the coffee is free were as in the LaGuardia Marriot of New York, New York it was only available for a limited time and you had to pay for it up front.

I have to agree with artistatheart, if it's the J Clyde Morris right off the I-64 exit. My recollection of that area is that it's filled with gas stations, fast foods, car washes, cash for gold and car title loan places. It's prior to reaching Oyster Point and CNU so yes, sketchy. When we were driving through we saw a man dancing on the sidewalk to no music wearing a 3-piece plaid twill/tweed suit and it was a sight to see.
