For the price & where this hotel is located you really can't beat it. Motel style with rooms on two floors. Basic continental breakfast. Free shuttle to Busch Gardens & Colonial Williamsburg although your only less than a 10 minute walk to the later. This place is certainly nothing fancy but due to the fact it's part of the CW...

So last year (sorry for the late review) we stayed at the Governers Inn for a week. We went right after school got out for my kids. It was a four hour drive, but worth it :). When we got to the main desk the lady was nice and helped us get to our room right away. When we got... More

We stayed here 3 night in July and had a wonderful time. I was skeptical due to the reviews but figured you cant beat the price right? Well it all went fine. It is a motel as described. Room was clean but to me smelled musty. We sprayed some febreeze around and chalked it up to high humidity and went... More

On the outside I said "Oh My" aloud, but because it is part of the Colonial Williamsburg property, you get all the great perks as a higher class hotel. Our room was not the cleanest, the tub was NOT even cleaned nor was the room vacuumed, however you can't beat 3 blocks away from everything!! My only complaint about breakfast... More

This hotel was fine for the price. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered plenty of choices and the person who was maintaining the breakfast area kept refilling items and worked to keep the area clean. The pool looked inviting although we didn't have the opportunity to use it. The room was fine - although... More

This place doesn't look like much, but because it's a Colonial Williamsburg property, you get first-class service and all the perks of the pricier places. Plus, it's clean, the pool is great and the price can't be beat. It became our "go to" place when we would come for an impromptu stay. When we had a problem with the alarm... More

We stayed from 7/4 to 7/6/14 at this motel, It has been 2 years since we have stayed here. it's a nice location but The hotel really needs a renovation. The carpet, curtains,and definitely the bathroom. the light fixtures have switches that don't work. I supervise a cleaning staff for a living,and if one of my staff cleaned the room... More

The first time I went to Colonial Williamsburg, 3 years ago, my fiance and I stayed here. I was a bit unsure because when we pulled into the parking lot it reminded me of a Motel 6 or something to that affect. As soon as we walked into the common area where the front desk is we were greeted by... More

We stayed one night to get a quick look around Williamsburg on our way to Virginia Beach. We knew it would be evening by the time we arrived and only planned in sleeping in the room. When pulling In it kinda reminded me of low rent apartments or a dorm. The lady at the desk was nice and changed our... More

The last time I stayed here was 20yr. ago and I think the only thing that has changed is the linens and curtains. That being said, the room was extremely clean and neat. I felt very comfortable. The short walk to the Merchant Square was great and the staff was very helpful. Breakfast was a bit limited and very crowded... More
