The hotel staff was very accommodating. The hotel was clean. All the facilities were clean. We stayed for 4 nights and would return for the same stay or longer. Had teenagers with me and they fully enjoyed the stay too.

This is our second stay in as many years at the Best Western PLUS Historic Area Inn. It is close to so many great eateries and all of the Williamsburg attractions. Brought our 80+ parents/in-laws for first time. They loved the hotel, they remarked on the daily breakfast and overall quietness of the hotel. We will be back again next... More

Check out was at 11:00 am, at 9:00 am maid service was trying to get in our room to clean. We were just getting up. They should check with the front desk to see what rooms they could get in to do cleaning. I paid for the room until 11:00 am and would like to get up when I want... More

Thank you for sharing your review and we do apologize for housekeeping coming to your door at 9am. In order for us to have rooms ready and available at check in time or to accommodate anyone who would like to check in earlier, housekeeping starts checking which rooms have left at approx. 9am. We understand your frustration and apologize but... More

Had a great experience at this location. All of the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The location was central to many amenities in the area. This location was very clean, breakfast was well done each morning and the cookies at night were a bonus after a long day! Would definitely recommend this location to family and friends and I...

We had a great stay at this hotel. Hotel staff were courteous, polite, and very helpful. The only complaint we had about this hotel was the breakfast - the food wasn't the best but if you can get by on cereal and muffins, it wasn't too bad. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable.

This was our third time in 5 years staying here. I am wondering if they are under new management. Other than the very nice gentleman who checked us in, the front desk staff was rude and not helpful at all. I had previously been used to super friendly service. Overall, you can see they are not putting a great effort... More

We had a positive stay at this BW property. Staff were helpful and courteous throughout our visit. It is in a great location near all the major attractions, restaurants and shopping with easy highway access. We felt safe at all times.

Checked in late on a Friday night. My wife, four-year-old son and I were given an absolutely disgusting room. Old, stale smelling, dusty walls, mildew in the bathroom. When we pointed this out, we were given a choice of recently upgraded rooms. The new one was acceptable, but the toilet overflowed and by the time we got the mess cleaned... More

Everything was above average, price, staff and the room. Breakfast could be a little better, but not enough to complain. The only drawback was no outside pool. Inside pool was very nice however. Had a great time,
