This was our first stay at this hotel and overall we were pleased. We stayed for four nights. Nothing fancy about this hotel, but it was clean, sheets and towels were changed daily and room was cleaned daily. Comes with a microwave and refrigerator which was nice to have for the food and drinks we brought. A/C was nice and... More

This was our first year staying here, after having bad experiences with other places in the area. The man behind the front desk is very pleasant. The property is very clean, both inside and out. Check in was a breeze and check out took about 10 seconds. The towels were changed daily and extras were provided without having to ask.... More

I gave this a very good rating under the guidelines of the fact that this was a very inexpensive place to stay relative to all other hotels in the area. The rooms were clean and seemed a bit older, but our room was adequate . It is a very small property but very conveniently located to Busch Gardens and Colonial... More

We stayed here two nights while in town to visit Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Our room was a bit musty smelling when we arrived, but the a/c wasn't turned on in our room and it smelled fine after the air circulated a bit. The room was a nice size with two double beds, refrigerator, microwave, free Wi-Fi and the sink/vanity... More

Stayed here on 4th July. Fairly average motel, nice and clean, free wifi and continental breakfast, short drive to the historical stuff. Absolutely fine if you're just looking for somewhere basic to rest your head.

We stayed for 5 nights, over the 4th of July holiday. The room and grounds were very clean and well-maintained. Despite the "real feel" temps of 100+, our room stayed nice & cool. The staff was very friendly & welcoming. Housekeeping was excellent; they even vacuumed our room during our stay. We have 3 kids, so that was much appreciated.... More

There are 3 different Econo Lodge motels in Williamsburg, 2 of them on Parkway Dr. So, I wonder whether there are some "good" reviews on this particular hotel by accident? I read all of the reviews before booking this motel, and was surprised at how bad this property actually was. The price is good, but the rooms need major updating.... More

Stayed here for a second time, this time in early May. Likes: - The person who always met me at the front desk (was it Vimi?) was consistently pleasant and professional, even though I sensed that she was very busy balancing multiple demands. - Located away from heavy concentration of hotels, restaurants and tourist traffic. - Within short distance from...

Older motel but with clean decent sized room. In a quiet part of town, short drive to visitor center. Very reasonable price for a inexpensive stay. We just want clean and comfortable. Courteous staff. Average breakfast

Stayed 3 nights on my 4th-5th trip to enjoy the Historic Area and surrounding sights - stayed here once before BTA (efore Trip Advisor). There are dozens of hotels in this vicinity, as well as those owned by Colonial Williamsburg (very pricey!). This may not be the newest and is not high-end, but is a perfectly comfortable, well-appointed and clean... More
