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The hotel is well located near restaurants and 5 miles away from Historic Williamsburg, but is a bit outdated inside.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

Rooms were clean, free breakfast was good ( better some days than others depending on menu), Fitness room was in need of attention. Not much to choose from and not all equipment was functional. Staff was very helpful. Location of motel was perfect. One mile from colonial Williamsburg and 5 miles from Busch Gardens. We booked in advance and received... More

While dated, I thought this hotel very well maintained and very clean. Great value for the price paid and the indoor pool was an added bonus. It really has a great location, right on the bypass rt 60, very close to historic Williamsburg and many dining options.

Thank you for your review and we are happy to say that we are making a few changes to try and get rid of that "dated" look in some areas. We are currently completely renovating the pool and it will look fantastic. We are adding new sofa beds in the rooms, new room lighting which makes a huge difference and... More

The location is excellent for touring, with close proximity to many restaurants. Two small things bothered me - 1. The TV was not set up for High Definiton. 2. The eggs served for breakfast were from a carton, not a chicken.

We stayed here one night. For the price, this is a good option in Williamsburg. The only issue I really had was that I didn't find the mattress to be all that comfortable, but it was fine for a night. My son and husband didn't have any issues. The pool was warm, almost unusually warm but still comfortable, and of... More

Dinning Area: We were told that there would be fruit and pancakes included in the breakfast and there were none. This is the first hotel where we've stayed that there were paper plates and plastic utensils. Also this is the first place where there is a tip jar sitting on the trash container in the dinning area!
