The rooms were a good size and clean. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful. I was there for a conference and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was close to many different restaurants and shopping. It was not hard to find.

A 3 night stay here in January for a conference. The lobby and courtyard are attractive. The staff is friendly. As noted by others, this is an elongated building, and patrons may walk the equivalent of a few blocks to reach a room. Our room was satisfactory, with a few minor annoyances (on the level of only 3 hangers, making... More

I stayed here for a conference and will never return. The furniture was badly scratched, the caulking around the shower was separating, and the faucet in the shower took forever to get hot water, then got stuck in the on position, and was almost impossible to shut off. After making a cup of coffee in my room and drinking it,... More

Dear Guest, I most definitely would like to learn more about your stay. There are many things that are dismaying and very much the exception and not the rule. Your feedback is incredibly important to me, especially as we prepare to embark upon a multi-million dollar renovation, beginning at the end of the first quarter. In regards to the water... More

Fort Magruder is a great location for Williamsburg and College of William and Mary. Josh is a fantastic bartender who goes beyond the call of duty to help his guests. He kept the bar open late for us and did everything he could to make our stay perfect. This is a great hotel for visiting Williamsburg.

Very reasonably priced hotel and great in terms of being dog friendly. Had amazing service from Josh the Bartender at the restaurant who made us feel at home (even the canine members of the family). Great location, minutes away from colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary.

Without a doubt this hotel is the best hotel in the Williamsburg area by far! We were originally booked at the days inn and upon finding the conditions deplorable and unsatisfactory, we checked in to this place and got everything we wanted and then some. Our room was an executive suite which was exemplary. Very clean, up kept, and just... More

Solid basic hotel with nice beds and windows that open for fresh air when you wish. Quiet rooms with hot showers that had very good pressure. Nice little bar area with better than average choices and the included breakfast is a notch above the usual. This is a good place to fill the kids with food, wear them out during... More
