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

We spent two weeks in Williamsburg, the second at this motel. With the senior discount the cost was about $52 a night. The breakfast is the low spot but the room itself was very comfortable. We just buy milk and cereal and eat in the room. The location is fantastic. I don't think we went more than three miles to... More

Great location, off the busy streets, but close to everything. Very well maintained, outside and inside.Very friendly staff. Rooms have a refrig and microwave. Hot water is hot right away, a nice thing. I highly recommend this motel, one of the best finds you will find with a reasonable price that exceeds what you would expect for the price.

We have been at this property for four nights. At forty dollars per night (before taxes and fees), this was a perfectly fine place to stay and see Williamsburg and the surrounding area. Mind you, the table is a bit rickety, one of the electrical outlets doesn't work well. the walls could be a bit more soundproof, the hot water... More
