The reason we stayed here was it came with a full continental breakfast. The first morning breakfast was so terrible never finished eating and went out to breakfast, then we went out for breakfast for the next three days adding unexpected expense to our trip.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful and during our thee night stay never saw anyone standing still. The Hotel has a very high standard of cleanliness. The room was large and well appointed and the only reason it does not merit a five is that the bathroom was sorely in need of some TLC, everything seemed to rely on... More

Good quality hotel. Convenient to most of the special activities in Williamsburg (Historic, Amusement parks, etc.). Appreciate the breakfast including eggs (i.e. protein) and not just sweets and/or cereals.

After having stayed at many hotels in the Williamsburg area, we are most satisfied with the BW. This was our third stay at this location. Without a doubt, the best value; clean, comfortable, very convenient to attractions and shopping AND very reasonable (so we can stay longer!) The fresh baked cookies at check-in are a big help for testy kids.

Coming to Williamsburg and seeing all of the different hotels to choose from me and my boyfriend decided to go with Best Western. When we first walked in we were greeted by Eric and Alex and they were very nice and provided us with information about the hotel and a map of the area which we really needed. We booked... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is clean, comfortable and has all the basic amenities you can expect from a 3 star hotel. It even includes complimentary breakfast and parking. It also has a good location, about 2 miles from the historic Colonial Williamsburg. All of this at a reasonable price!

Poor cleanliness, faucet still had toothpaste drops from previous guest, bathroom floor sticky, hair on shower wall. Stained pillow covers. Returned them to house keeper, she gave me three and one was dirty which I returned to her. Good location to Historic area and BG if visiting, many restaurants nearby, a plus. Average room and poor value because this is... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was conveniently located to everything. The bed was very comfortable and quiet. The Pool and hot tub were very nice. Breakfast was good but very crowded

The location is great for traveling to the historical areas. The hotel staff were courteous and the rooms were very clean. The beds were soft and comfortable too. Breakfast was tasty and there was a variety for cold and hot. Breakfast was a challenge later in the morning though. If you do not like to stand in line, go early... More

Thank you for your review, we apologize for the difficulty during breakfast which we do experience due to the limited seating space. We did add an outside patio which relieves some of the pressure but we still have a challenge. We do the best we can but apologize for the crowd during summer. More
