We stayed here while in town for a family wedding. The check in staff was overly friendly, even apologizing for the terrible traffic encountered on the way there. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were nothing fancy, but quite comfortable after a long day. The fridge and microwave in room was a great touch as was the free... More

I was checked in and out so fast and easy. Thanks. Quick stay after day in Busch gardens. Our pick every time. They are so nice and friendly. Clean. Breakfast is okay but enough to fill our stomach before going back into park. Would recommend.

Average room, average beds. Kids enjoyed pool. Breakfast was mediocre....We hated seeing the "ultra-pasteurized" milk....just more chemical laden garbage. It was good for a one night stay on a road trip. We stayed here largely because it was one of the few non smoking no pet motels we could find on our route to the beach.

Thank you for your review and we apologize that you found the milk to be disappointing. We hope you will return to Williamsburg and give us another shot, we appreciate your business. More

I was there for a bass tournament and the room was booked by a third party. As far as the room itself I have no complaints. The room had two queen beds and a large screen TV, fridge, microwave and a coffee pot and the bed slept very well. There were no outside outlets to charge my boat batteries and... More

This place is close to Williamsburg attractions, and is also a good base to access Jamestown and Yorktown. Most descriptions that I have for this place, in most everything I experienced leaned toward Average, but Good-Enough for most, and at this average price. The place does seem to be well managed, and the staff is kind and professional. Perhaps the... More

Apart from the wonderful staff at the front desk, this was not impressive at all. First room assigned had cigarette smoke. The lady at the front office was kind enough to change it. Second room had a bathroom doorknob that was not properly screwed in and the ambience of the room was old. The pillows were not of good quality.... More

This is about what you'd expect for this type of hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. We went to Colonial Williamsburg and it was conveniently located for getting to and from there. The breakfast was adequate and average for what these kinds of "included-in-the-price" breakfasts have declined to. My gripe about the experience isn't really with the hotel, but... More

I'm the type of person who sees a glass "half full," so here's the positive part of my experience. The staff was very friendly, and check-in/out went very quickly. Breakfast was great, and there was plenty available. The location is fantastic, right across the street from a small shopping center with a Kmart and my favorite Mongolian barbecue restaurant. It...
