Great location and plenty of parking. Rooms very clean and beds great. Quiet area. Free WiFi. Staff very friendly. Although we did not use it....they have a very nice indoor pool. The breakfast was included and was very nice. Highly recommend if you visit Williamsburg.

We stay at this hotel every year for William & Mary's Homecoming weekend and we love it! The service is always great, it's close to the campus, restaurants, etc. and they serve a nice breakfast in the morning. Our room is always clean and comfortable and the internet works great which has been a fight in past hotels. Can't wait... More

I am a bit surprised by some of the other reviews I have read about this hotel. I just came home from a 4 day stay at Best Western. Our room was everything we were looking for. Its so nice having a refrigerator ( and its not the teeny tiny kind ) and a microwave . The breakfast was pretty... More

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

Thank you for sharing your review. We apologize for the jacuzzi tub, we will definitely get that taken care of. As for the upgrades, they are coming very soon. We are adding brand new lighting in all of our rooms which will also have additional outlets. We are very excited about the improvements that are planned very soon, hope you... More
