This former Ramada has everything you could want in a hotel: reasonable rates and a location convenient to all the museums, plantation houses, and business centers of Newport News, plus Fort Lee, NASA Langley, Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Busch Gardens. The rooms, decorated in paisley prints and mahogany furnishings, are loaded with every necessity and convenience, like refrigerators and microwaves. They'll even loan you a wireless card for your computer. Don't
overlook the free shuttle for Newport News Williamsburg Airport, the Amtrak station, and Greyhound stop. Ask for a room in the "tower" —recently renovated with plush bedding and flat-screen TV, a bargain for all you get.
