When we checked in they mistakenly had us down for a "pet friendly" room, but I'm allergic to cats, so they gave us a different room. It went downhill from there. It reeked of stale cigarette smoke, contrary to what I did request, and notwithstanding a "no smoking" sign placed in the room. The entire lock to the safe was... More

Came here for a quick weekend getaway with the family. Pool was large but dirty. Dead bugs and food pieces everywhere. Hot tub was not hot, same temp as pool and it felt as though there was a film over your skin when you got out of pool. Room was clean but old. Website I bought room from states free... More

Last minute trip to Williamsburg on Easter weekend and wanted to avoid paying elevated prices so booked this hotel. Great location, can walk to Colonial Williamsburg area if you are in average shape. Room was generally clean and bed was surprisingly comfortable. Bathroom was small (very small) and outdated. We did kill a roach in bathroom but otherwise no problems.... More

Friendly staff, clean room, comfy bed, free wifi. Great bar and bistro in hotel, popular with locals. Food hot and homemade. Great value. Some noise from rail tracks didn't bother us. Easy to walk into Williamsburg in 10 minutes, so saved time and money on parking. Loved our visit

This is a dog friendly hotel very close to the historic district. Otherwise, I'm not overly impressed. No breakfast. Hallway full of barking dogs. Middle aged dance party going in the restaurant where the hostess abandoned her stand and no one came to seat me for 20 minutes. Coffee in the room but no tea. A little rundown and shabby.... More

Sorry about the service in the restaurant - I will talk with the owners and pass your concern along. The restaurant is a separate lease from the hotel but that does not mean I will not ensure they raise their standards. Thx Neal More

The rooms aren't very big but very comfortable and clean. Very nice and helpful staff. The Bourbon Street Bar and Grill was a fun place. Met a lot of very nice people. The location of the Clarion is very convenient to see all of Williamsburg.

Was told that check in was not until 4 PM, which I replied it is 2 minutes of 4 and this is a problem ? Upon... More

I am sorry about the hot water in the sink - not sure why it was working in the tub but not the sink - maintenance has checked and replaced the faucet with a new one just in case it had a bad hot water valve. I have checked the alarm and it has been ordered and will be replaced.... More

This is a basic hotel with clean rooms and comfortable beds. Our Airbnb got canceled at the last minute. I was able to find this hotel, which took dogs and had adjoining rooms. Turned on the fan and my dog never heard a peep (she was also tired from touring Williamsburg). There were down/feather pillows, which some people like, but... More

Thanks for the great review. The pillows are brand standard and we have no problem replacing the feather with the poly pillow - I too have the same problem. We are reasonably priced but give excellent service. Thx Neal More

Very Helpful staff. Older but clean rooms. The pool was very good sized with plenty of sitting area. Coffee available 24 hrs in lobby was nice. Very convenient location for all area activities. overall not the fanciest, but good value.
