Hotwire has this hotel listed as a 3 star property under it's secret Hot Rate hotels. They will tell you that it is an expensive 3 star property, and that you are getting a great rate (something like 60% off of the regular rate). This is a complete lie. It is in no way 3 stars, and no other travel... More

To Whom It May Concern: Unfortunately, I find I must write this letter to document a more than unsatisfactory recent stay at a Best Western in Williamsburg, VA. I found myself in a situation that would be every hotel guest’s worst nightmare – unwanted and unwelcome guests were waiting in my hotel room on the evening of September 27th, 2014.... More

The Best Western Plus Historic Area Inn is situated in a good location basically in the middle of town with easy access to Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, the outlets, etc. However, there are also many other hotels in the vicinity and I wouldn't choose this one again. My wife and I stayed here using Best Western points last Saturday night... More

We were arriving for a four day stay at one of the CW hotels and just wanted a place to sleep the night we drove into town. Picked this place to use our BW points, but we were short and told we couldn't buy extra points on a weekend, so we booked at the AARP rate. For the $63 we... More

This hotel was very clean & comfortable, with a helpful staff. We had a fridge & microwave, which are always useful. It is ideally situated for visiting Colonial Williamsburg as it's only a 5 min drive to the Tourist Bureau to buy your tickets & catch the bus (included in the ticket) after parking. The breakfast room is rather small... More

The bed was comfortable & it had all the amenities we needed. I didn't reserve a room with a spa tub but I think they upgraded us since I am a platinum member. Unfortunately the spa tub was very unpleasant looking. The bottom was discolored & the water jets weren't sparkling clean. The sink faucet looked old. Most BWs we... More

I don't understand reading other peoples complaints about the breakfast. It was a yummy breakfast for a hotel! I'm a picky eater and I still had many options! The only two things I could complain about it's the bathroom is very very small. Also I keep hearing a loud noise randomly threw out the day/night.

We haven't had any additional complaints so we are hoping it was a one time thing. Thanks again for the review, it is... More

Not necessarily the cheapest place to stay in Williamsburg but one of the better ones that is not a budget buster. Nice rooms, great staff, particulalry the front desk staff who are very helpful and courteous. Only complaint is that breakfast could be a little better, particularly the coffee. It looks dark but is sorely lacking in taste. Definitely will... More

Good value and location. Although recently remodeled room, décor just average but amenities OK. Beds comfortable. TV reception poor on many channels. Go elsewhere for breakfast - food and coffee lousy. Hotel clean and staff helpful.

The room was clean. Nothing else special about the stay. Looked forward to the hot tub and pool. Hot tub temperature was too hot and the indoor pool was way too cold. Continental breakfast was awful. I really thought Best Western was the best hotel chain. My sister uses them exclusively. I would have preferred better beds, better breakfast, and... More
