Whilst this not as expensive as most. It is a lovely place and very handy to walk into historical Williamsburg. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and maintained. The breakfast is a good basic start to the day. Park your car and leave it. You are that close to the centre. Happy to stay here again.

It was convenient to Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Clean enough, but dated. TV didn't work. Staff was nice. We checked in too early and they were nice enough to look up when the park closed so we could be back to get our keys.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. While it is an official Colonial Williamsburg hotel and near CW that's the end of the benefits. The rooms are dark and ours had a dampness that the air conditioning just couldn't overcome. We had one lamp that didn't work, our TV didn't work and the tub didn't drain well. There are... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Governor's Inn. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was more than I expected for "continental". We were able to walk to Colonial Williamsburg in about 10 minutes but if you wanted a shuttle it was only a 5 minute drive away...and parking for the shuttle at the visitors center is free. The front... More

The big thing that this place has going for it is the location, if you're visiting Colonial Williamsburg. It's within walking distance to the historic area, less than half a mile. We loved being able to walk down there and back. Other than that, it is what it is - which is a typical motel. The room was small, felt... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Governors Inn and were quite satisfied. The room was clean, the continental breakfast was very good, the staff were excellent and being able to walk to Colonial Williamsburg and the restaurants and shopping was an added bonus. Also being able to charge meals in Colonial WIlliamsburg to our room account was a nice touch.... More

We stayed here for two nights and found the property to be in good condition. There was a free breakfast included daily with the hotel stay. Room rates were reasonable and the hotel is located close to Colonial Williamsburg. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean and well-maintained. We stayed on the first floor, which I would recommend... More

If you are looking for a budget place to stay within the Colonial Williamsburg area, the Governor's Inn is the place to stay. Very quiet, helpful front-desk attendants. We were very satisfied with our stay. Our room was clean. This motel is showing its age, but was good for us. The continental breakfast was good with basic choices. We would... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 days in this hotel for our birthday celebrations and we find the room very pleasant. You have to walk a bit though for breakfast area but they serve variety of food. For 2 days, they serve different breakfast. The staffs are very friendly offering coffee and cookies.

We stayed here for our long weekend in Colonial Williamsburg. It was a basic, no frills room but it was clean which makes it a keeper in our book. We were only a short walk and 3 blocks from the Colonial City so we didn't always have to drive to the visitor center to catch the free bus. You had... More
