We stayed for 3 nights and it was a great location! The Motel is located right off the Colonial Parkway and very close to Historic Williamsburg. The room was clean and neat. There was even a nonskid mat for the tub. The breakfast room was very tidy and well organized. It was great having breakfast just right there to have... More

Stayed here with my wife & kids this summer. Check in was smooth & friendly, our downstairs room clean & quiet. Pool was well kept & clean. Wifi was good. We could walk to a number of restaurants, including an excellent Mexican place just down the street. The hotel is located on the quieter side of town which is nice... More

Easy access from Freeway, pleasant safe walk 20 minute to Historic Williamsburg, plenty of restaurants nearby. The rooms are spacious and clean, and very good value. Next morning we took the parkway to Jamestown and an onramp to this is very close. This hotel makes a good base for exploring the area.

Family Owned Motel Run by Good People Years ago when I was wealthy I always stayed at the Williamsburg Inn for $400-500 per night. Now I am retired and have to be more careful with my money. I still love Colonial Williamsburg and have been there with my wife and children until they refused to come anymore. I am convinced... More

Well all I can say is its no the worst but not close to the best. If I could do again I would pay a little more and get somewhere better. Beds very uncomfortable, bathroom was honestly awful. Very poor services and needs an update. Don't get me wrong, I was aware that for 98.00 I wasn't going to get... More

All I wanted was a clean place where I'm not afraid to rest my head for the night. Unfortunately, this Econo Lodge did not manage to deliver that and for what I was charged, I've stayed in much cleaner motels with better upkeep. This was a clear disappointment for the cost. It's only saving grace is its proximity to Colonial... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for four nights while on vacation in Williamsburg. The location is excellent; it takes less than five minutes to get to the CW Welcome Center or the downtown shopping area (Merchant's Square) from the hotel. It's in a less developed area so there isn't a lot of traffic getting into or out of the... More

It was the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. A family of four. The kids didn't even want to lay in the bed or use the bathroom. The room and bathroom were beyond disgusting. For $113 you expect better. This was worse than a Super8, we have never stayed there, but know they don't have the best reputation.It wasn't... More

I thought we would try this hotel based on the good reviews I had read about. We booked three night and left after the first. We really tried to like it, but the cons kept piling up. Pros: Clean, good location, modern showerhead. Cons: Small, uncomfortable beds. Floor creaked and moved underfoot in two places in our room. Tiny bathroom.... More

Stayed for one night; located in Colonial Williamsburg. Nice location and an overall nice place to stay. The staff was friendly and the facilities clean. The pool was a nice evening treat; it was open until 10:00 -- although later is always nicer. The internet service here was excellent. Plenty of nearby places to visit and eat. Highly recommended.
