I did not stay at the hotel, but attended a 3 day science fiction conference. They have two sections with meeting rooms, including a tiered classrooms with tabletops and power. The staff was supremely helpful and friendly, even when they didn't have to be. On the last day, one of the porters said, Have a safe trip, as we passed... More

My parents stayed at this hotel for their 50th wedding anniversary during the week of March 2015. As I spoke to them this week they were so overjoyed about how they were treated and had nothing but good things to say about the hotel. I was only able to find out where they were staying when I read it in... More

Came for a weekend retreat and was disappointed in the ageing dirty, and unkempt hotel. Wallpaper peeling in the hallways with "stuff" stuck to it and some wallpaper held on to the wall with packing tape. The pictures definitely do not show the real fort macgruder hotel as I saw it today. I will try and post my pictures if... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel - close to the colonial area and Busch Gardens. The time we stayed was not as we expected. The room had a great deal of humidity which made everything and everybody feel damp. The hotel refunded our money because of the problem we experienced.

The staff was amazing and very helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable. We also had buffet catering of two breakfasts and one dinner. Everything was superb! Walking distance to the historic area. Convenient to shopping, as well.

The more I try to summarize my two stays at this hotel, the more I realize what a good deal it is. It's got a good location, within minutes of Colonial Williamsburg. The lobby is nice with several artifacts from and paintinsgs about fort nearby. The restaurant has a good breakfast buffet and the servers are nice people, really. Truth... More

My husband and I had a two-night stay this past weekend at Fort Magruder Hotel. I booked through Priceline.com and I panicked a bit when it was the hotel I was randomly given among the 3 star hotel selection (I had read reviews that were mostly on the negative side). However, the staff was very friendly upon arrival, we were... More

Good bang for your buck. Great location, nice rooms. Very close to Busch Gardens. I liked that there was a refrigerator and microwave in room. Bathroom was tiny but it was convient that the sink area was separate from actual bathroom.

Had the opportunity to visit this hotel for the evening and had a great experience. I had 3 young teens with me and everyone enjoyed their evening. We had a light meal and the food was very good - service was good considering the bartender Bridgette, was also responsible for the entire seating area. I would like to see them... More

There are things to like about this hotel: friendly staff, indoor pool, no charge for internet, reasonable prices at the bar, comfy lobby with sunken seating area and internet stations, comfy beds. It's close to colonial Williamsburg, walking distance on a nice day. But the place really shows its age. The hallway ceilings are low and stained, there are little... More
