We stayed at the end of December during our Christmas break. I only wish everywhere was as friendly as Virginia. Location was great for exploring the Historic Triangle. Quick access to the highways made a rain day at Newport News very simple. Easy parking, comfy beds, good shower, quiet rooms, and a heated pool; perfect for the family. The only... More

Great hotel! The front desk staff was very professional and friendly at all times. This hotel is literally right down the road to Busch Gardens. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Really dislike the mini fridges in the Courtyards--it only cools for every 2 hours? Wish the café was open later because we are late sleepers. Also wish... More

As a Platinum member I stay at Courtyards almost weekly so I do have a solid base for comparison. This is an older, first version Courtyard that has been renovated not long ago. However, some other areas of the hotel and the landscaping are in need of some care. The sheets were rather worn and should be replaced. Our room... More

When we checked in the front desk staff advised us which door was closest to our room for parking. Additionally, they gave us a coupon for a free appetizer at a near by sports bar. Upon entering the room we noticed is was clean and roomy. The bathroom was large because it was handicap accessible. The indoor pool and hot... More

This hotel is your standard Courtyard Marriott. However, I have to complain about a few things. The room wasn't quite as clean as I would have liked. There were pubic hairs in the corner of the bathroom! Also, the conditioner was used and half empty. My other complaint is that the walls are quite thin! I was there with my... More

We recently spent two nights at the Courtyard for a fall weekend of touring Colonial Williamsburg, and this hotel definitely deserves an award for being “most improved.” We stayed here a couple of years ago for a trip to Busch Gardens and really had nothing good to say about the hotel at the time. In fact, we vowed to never... More

Courtyards seem to be replacing bedding in some of the older hotels and this one had it. The beds were great. The bathroom is a little small. We were in a suite, so I would have preferred adding a little more space for shutting the door than to have such a big living area. Overall though, was a great stay.

Recently stayed one night at the Courtyard by Marriott Williamsburg. The location was great: close to several major roads but removed enough that traffic noise was not an issue. The room and bathroom were clean and modern. Noise did travel in fairly easily from the hallway, but after 10pm all guests seemed to be in for the night. The beds... More

This is a wonderful hotel--clean, up-to-date, friendly and professional staff, and the location and setting quite peaceful. It would have received a top rating except for the noise coming from the swimming pool where a gathering of 15-25 teenage girls were frollicking around 10 p.m., and woke me up. I called the front desk, and they took care of it,... More

We stayed one night and we had a nice experience. The staff were all very nice and the room was clean and comfortable. We had a nice breakfast in the lobby the following morning as well. Very convenient to Busch Gardens (1 mile) and Colonial Williamsburg (2 miles).
