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

We stayed here with a "Christmas Package" which was $129 for King bed room, 2 breakfasts included, and 2 tickets to Christmas town at Busch Gardens. After doing the math it worked out that we got the room for $30, which was a steal! The room was really nice, lobby was gorgeous and spacious. The bed was sooooo nice we... More

Tough ratings challenge. i would stay there again. The hotel was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and if you are up to it you could walk to Colonial Williamsburg (about 1/2 mile). The breakfast restaurant was OK, especially in view of the reasonable prices. The internet worked fine as did their free computers in the lobby. They do allow... More

The staff was friendly and inside the hotel looked nice. However, the sheets were so old they did not stay on the bed! It's disgusting to wake up and see the mattress. Plus they were small sheets for a deep mattress. Then the cleaning staff came in one day and forgot to give us any hand towels. There was also... More

Staff were very nice behind the front desk as well as in the restaurant. the problem is they advertise a heated indoor pool and it is not heated. we first said something on our first night and nobody came to the pool to look at it he...
