This hotel was in a great location in Williamsburg. It was easily accessible to restaurants, shopping, Busch Gardens, and the College of William and Mary. The staff was always very friendly and helpful and they offered several breakfast options.

We came to go to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. This hotel is located perfectly for these two sites. The room rate is very good. The hotel offers spacious rooms with queen beds which is great for a family of 4 (which we are).

The hotel was the best! I enjoyed the breakfast and staff. The rooms were clean. I even got a call asking was everything to my liking. The pool was nice. The lobby was better than I thought it would be. I would stay again if I'm ever in Williamsburg, VA.
