Came without reservations, so made reservations through Orbitz while standing at the counter to secure the best price. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful about this. On our way up to our room, we smelled something 'hot' - like a hard working dryer - in the hallway off the lobby. We came back down within 10 minutes and... More

After reading several reviews, we settled on the Best Western Plus Historic Inn for our Colonial Williamsburg Trip. We chose this location 1) for the use of the heated indoor pool 2) for the fridge & microwave in room 3) for the free hot breakfast included 4) for the price $55 a night 5) for the location- close to highway...

The staff at this Best Western is AMAZING. Super friendly, English speaking, and always around to help out whether it be with dining or sightseeing ideas. It's been about a year since we were last there, but we are planning on going back next month and really looking forward to it. We remember the continental breakfast as having some of... More

Nice clean hotel with a very good staff. Breakfast could be a litter better. Because this review must have 200 characters minimum, I am now typing this extra stuff in even though it really makes very little sense to do this since I am normally a person that tries to give opinions in as efficient manner as is humanly possible.

There was trash under the beds in our room. Even though there was a do not disdurb sign on the door the cleaning crew still knocked on the door and tried to come in the room. The breakfast was not very good.

This hotel is in a great location for visiting the historic restored Colonial Williamsburg area as well as shopping at retail and outlet stores. We have stayed here many times. It is reasonably priced and especially nice and quiet in the winter months when attendance is low. We do not eat the breakfast that is included in the price. We... More

The hotel is well located near restaurants and 5 miles away from Historic Williamsburg, but is a bit outdated inside. The rooms are large but the beds are way too plush. Breakfast was maybe slightly better than typical free hotel breakfast but nothing special. Checking desk staff was very courteous. Not sure I'll come again.

Had a wonderful stay. Best Western Historic Plus made welcoming in the New Year extra enjoyable! After a fun evening at First Night Williamsburg it was great to come back to a warm room and VERY comfortable bed! Looking forward to staying there again for President's Weekend.

We have stayed at the Best Western Plus a few times when visiting Williamsburg, as we love the location to restaurants, historic district, Busch Gardens, etc. We take advantage of the indoor pool/hot tub, excercise room and the free breakfast is very nice. The game/arcade room, is basically just a pinball machine and a couple of other games outside of... More

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at the Best Western Historic except for the toilet but I am glad we switched your room and were able to resolve the issue. We have improved our pool area and have some other small changes coming soon. We hope to see again this year, thanks again for sharing your review. More
