The room was decent. We had to use a pencil under the coffee pot to get the coffee to run out. The glass pot obviously wasn't the right one for it. Our room 6404 was on the front side of the building facing the highway and parking was sometime pretty far away. When I took a shower water would be... More

My boyfriend and I went on a road trip down south so we planned most of it on the fly. We booked two nights at the governors inn quickly and easily. It was conveniently located near the heart of colonial Williamsburg. The AC worked fantastic and the pool looked clean. However, at the end of the first day our room... More

Nice place. Nothing fancy. The desk people were very helpful and polite. The room we stayed in was ok but it appears it's time for a face lift and a bathroom update. The breakfast is just bakery items and cold cereal

The location of this inn was fabulous. It is right around the corner from the Amtrak station - therefore, you may hear the trains passing through. It doesn't last long, so don't let that deter you. The walk to Colonial Williamsburg was both pleasant and short. The staff was friendly and VERY responsive to my expressed concerns. They were great... More

Not a very exciting hotel, not a lot of amenities BUT a great location within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg (and you get a discount) and the restaurants area. Outdoor swimming pool much appreciated by the kids. Complementary breakfast- not a lot of choices and not much healthy choices however.

For the price, it's s good deal. It's very clean (which to us is the most important thing). The location can't be beat. Ten minute walk and you're in the middle of Colonial Williamsburg. The staff is very helpful and polite. The beds are not that comfortable. Breakfast is just ok (but free)! The place itself is dated and ugly,... More

The room was relatively clean, but the fact that the front desk is not open 24 hours a day was a bit worrisome. The only real "problem" was a slow flowing, flushing, and draining toilet and sink. For a last-minute one-night stay that only required a place to sleep, it was okay. I would not stay there for multiple days,... More

Nice pool with some shade. Excellent parking. Good variety at breakfast. Well kept rooms. Only a short walk to historical downtown. Reception staff particularly friendly and useful. First time ever we'd seen fire flies.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Governor's Inn. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, don't even think about booking. BUT, if you are looking for an economical place to stay that is clean, serves breakfast, and has a great pool, this is the place. When we pulled up, my daughter just looked at me. It's not a...

Stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms are average and a little on the small side furnished with only double beds. I thought we would have at least queen beds. We visited with our 3 kids and 5 in the room was a little crowded. The staff here is awesome and very accommodating. The... More
