The staff were very accommodating and caring; the free breakfast was good enough to get us by until lunch. The room was clean with appropriate channels for kids. The pool was huge and nice. It was only three blocks from colonial Williamsburg!!! There are resturants and convenience stores in driving distance

It was a good hotel. We got to the room, it was clean and stocked when we arrived. The beds weren't super super comfy and the air conditioning was kinda loud BUT it was good for what we wanted. We were visiting the city so we weren't going to hang out in the room. Which is what I think these... More

This hotel is within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg and Merchants Square. The property was well maintained, with blooming flowers and a sparkling pool. The rooms were clean but dated. The woman who works the front desk was super friendly and upbeat -- truly a gem-- giving us advice on a good place to eat and answering any questions we... More

Have to agree with most of the reviews. Wasn't expecting anything fancy just clean rooms and that's what we got. Breakfast was a little lacking but the inn is close to what ever food you could want so it wasn't a big deal. Over all I would definitely book again next time I'm in Williamsburg.

if your looking for a clean room, nice pool, free wifi, good location near Colonial Williamsburg at a great price, this is it. This is an older hotel with no frills and rooms that open to the parking lot. But, you can't beat the value. Also, includes an adequate breakfast and 10% discount on Colonial Williamsburg tickets.

The hotel is in a good location. When we checked in at 3pm only one of our rooms was ready. It smelled like someone spilled beer all over the floor or something. Then we noticed a dirty sock on the floor and called the front desk and they came and got the sock. We went to Busch Gardens and came... More

We were a group of 3 families spending 3 days in Williamsburg mostly for Bush Garden and Water Country. We had 3 rooms side by side as we requested. Breakfast was ok, not perfect but ok. The pool seemed nice but did not have the chance to go. Rooms were very clean!

Just returned from 5 nights at the Governor's Inn in Colonial Williamsburg. The Inn is located within walking distance of activities, restaurants and shopping opportunities in Colonial Williamsburg. Our room had two double beds and plenty of room to spread out. There was a flat screen TV and a refrigerator. The Inn has several buildings -- much larger than what... More

Stayed for 1 night with my 2 sons. The staff was friendly and the room was nice. Only 3 blocks from the Historic area so easy to walk to where we wanted to go. The breakfast was alright if you just wanted something lite and quick. Overall a good value for the $$

The hotel is 3 blocks from the historic centre with ample parking. The rooms are comfortable and clean with a reasonably sized bathroom. The included continental breakfast is a bit disappointing in choice and it is served on disposable plates and cutlery.
