4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spend 3 nights in Williamsburg visiting the area. This BW more than met our needs! Easy to find and close to Colonial Williamsburg, it was a great place to use as home base. It is slightly dated and the rooms are not the larges we've had in a BW, but we weren't there to hang out in the room!... More

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Clean rooms; spacious. Traveled with son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. Requested adjoining rooms, which worked out well for everyone. Decent indoor pool so the kids had a place to release some energy. Free breakfast was OK, but not spectacular. Everything was hot and fresh but a little more variety would be nice.

We only stayed the evening and the hotel was quite, clean and offered a full breakfast. The hotel was updated and is located near many place to eat and shop. We got a great rate and will visit again. Wonderful hotel.

I stayed with my girlfriend on a getaway style trip from Virginia Beach. It was a perfect trip for us. We shopped the outlets and spent quality time. The service at the hotel was bar none and the staff was very friendly which is difficult to find at certain hotels like these. We'd do it again real soon!

I really enjoyed my stay here. All of the staff were kind and helpful. The location was very convenient. This was my first time in Williamsburg and I'm glad my family and I chose to stay here. We look forward to visiting again.

This hotel is defiantly one of my favorite hotels to stay while I visit Willamsburg. From the minute you walk in until the moment you check you well taken care of. From the amazing staff to the amazing indoor pool. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone staying in Willamsburg

The reason we stayed here was it came with a full continental breakfast. The first morning breakfast was so terrible never finished eating and went out to breakfast, then we went out for breakfast for the next three days adding unexpected expense to our trip.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful and during our thee night stay never saw anyone standing still. The Hotel has a very high standard of cleanliness. The room was large and well appointed and the only reason it does not merit a five is that the bathroom was sorely in need of some TLC, everything seemed to rely on... More

Good quality hotel. Convenient to most of the special activities in Williamsburg (Historic, Amusement parks, etc.). Appreciate the breakfast including eggs (i.e. protein) and not just sweets and/or cereals.

After having stayed at many hotels in the Williamsburg area, we are most satisfied with the BW. This was our third stay at this location. Without a doubt, the best value; clean, comfortable, very convenient to attractions and shopping AND very reasonable (so we can stay longer!) The fresh baked cookies at check-in are a big help for testy kids.
