I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Williamsburg! We were a group of 10 friends meeting for a weekend. Each of us remarked what a wonderful staff! They greeted us when we arrived, in the breakfast room or walking in the hallways! Excellent breakfast! Convenient to everything

We stayed at this hotel for a band trip with my daughter's high school. We were unable to stay at the hotel where the band was staying so I chose this one. Hotel was very clean, food was great and extremely fast check in and out. Staff was very pleasant.

My husband and I try to visit Williamsburg yearly, specifically the historical area. This hotel was very close to not only the historical area, but to many restaurants and shopping establishments. The hotel was therefore, convenient. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was very clean and comfortable. Price was reasonable.

I stayed at this hotel over spring break with my family and we were very happy with the property. The front desk staff was very friendly upon arrival. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed having a microwave and refridgerator in our room. The only down side was the size of the bathroom. It's tiny. I would have been... More

I booked this hotel through Hotwire, so I didn't know which hotel it was that I was getting. Upon review it looked average, which was fine. I arrived before check in and the front desk staff was very friendly and pleasant trying to see if there was a room that was ready. I heard housekeeping come to her and say... More

We stayed here for a Saturday through Sunday visit at Williamsburg. The staff here is super friendly, always a great plus. The hotel definitely needs a renovation but it isn't bad at all either. It's a great deal for the price you pay and you are close to everything from here. Golden Corral and Cracker Barrel are literally across the... More

This hotel wasn't horrible, but overall was not a great experience. The room was small, the carpet was dirty (there was a clear iron imprint on the carpet by the bathroom door), and room just wasn't a welcoming feel. Other than the carpet being dirty, the bed was comfortable, and appeared clean. The bathroom was clean, but VERY tight quarters.... More

The hotel is clean, breakfast was enough for everyone to enjoy and there was plenty to have. In our room the light over the microwave was flashing off and on so I reported it when we first got into the room and it was replaced the next day while they cleaned our room. I would stay here again.
