It was a nice stay. The staff was very nice, rooms were in great shape, the pool was heated, lets not forget the free breakfast. It was in a very quiet area and walking distance to cracker barrel restaurant, which was nice.

We stayed for my birthday weekend 1/16 -1/18. Very nice hotel with great staff. Good location. Good breakfast bar and area. Room was a king with a nice bed. Internet worked very well. We were able to park close to our room for easy in and outs. Will return for sure the next time we are in Williamsburg.

Williamsburg, VA is a wonderful place to visit and check out Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. For most people such as myself who visits Williamsburg, a good hotel is often necessary to take advantage of what Williamsburg has to offer. I decided to take my family to Williamsburg for New Year's. This trip was a gift to my two daughters... More

I purchased this stay through Groupon, so it was reasonable. If I had to pay in season prices for this place, I would be very angry. The beds were very comfortable, but the tile work and cabinetry was well used. The shower curtain had a burn hole in it and was hidden by twisting the curtain and putting it through... More

This is a great mid priced hotel. We were in the area for the Bush Gardens Christmas lights and it was only a short drive from here. The rooms were large enough to hold a pull out sofa bed and a king bed.The carpets, bathrooms, and furniture were in good shape. They did skimp on the towels, as those were... More

The outside of the building looks great. However, the inside needs renovations. To their credit, they have begun just that. The breakfast area is newly remodeled and nicely done. It has black top tables and white leather looking chairs. There are also two flat screens in the eating/lobby area. The continental breakfast was great the first day. It had a... More

Very helpful staff. Comfortable room and bed. The indoor pool and hot tub were just perfect. I'll be back! This Best Western is very close to Colonial Williamsburg, a place I visit often. As a museum director, I go there often.

We were seeking a hotel so we didn't have to drive home from Christmastown tired. Our stay at the Best western became a mini vacation. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the beds were very comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and the pool and jaccuzzi open at 9 am so we went swimming prior to our departure. We plan...

The staff was outstanding!! The hotel was under renovations that were not noted on the website. The whirlpool tub was flaking when filled. The pictures of the Breakfast Room, King Suite, and Fitness Center looked a lot nicer than what was actually available.

We visited 2 rooms 2 nights in December midweek. Although the place is in the middle of a renovation there was minimal disruption for either couple. The pool was open even though it is off season, unlike most hotels in the area. A bit high on the chlorine but for a hotel pool and the potential for problems it was... More
