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

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.

Came without reservations, so made reservations through Orbitz while standing at the counter to secure the best price. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful about this. On our way up to our room, we smelled something 'hot' - like a hard working dryer - in the hallway off the lobby. We came back down within 10 minutes and... More

The staff at this Best Western is AMAZING. Super friendly, English speaking, and always around to help out whether it be with dining or sightseeing ideas. It's been about a year since we were last there, but we are planning on going back next month and really looking forward to it. We remember the continental breakfast as having some of... More

Nice clean hotel with a very good staff. Breakfast could be a litter better. Because this review must have 200 characters minimum, I am now typing this extra stuff in even though it really makes very little sense to do this since I am normally a person that tries to give opinions in as efficient manner as is humanly possible.
