Staying at the Governor's Inn is kind of like stepping back in time-- circa 1975. Popcorn ceilings anyone? I only stayed for one night and was glad I had not booked it for more. The digital alarm clock looked like the one my grandfather had when I was a kid. The room was clean, but on the small side and... More

We recently stayed at the Governor's Inn for three nights. We had stayed here approximately four years ago. Not much has changed in those four years, especially the bed covers. The sheets were white and new, which was encouraging. However, the bedspread had not obviously been changed since there were "stains" on it that were not just stains but were... More

With a daughter at the College of William and Mary we have stayed here several times recently and I am sure will stay here many times in the future. I am glad to support Colonial Williamsburg and stay at their" budget" accommodation. It is wonderful to be able to walk to campus or any where in CW. Breakfast is an... More

I have stayed at hundreds of hotels. This is the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. EVER. We arrived late and had to drive to another hotel to check in. Then our room was disgusting. Burn marks on the gross blankets, stains on the floor, dead bugs, holes in the walls, strong mold smell, scary sounding AC. It... More

My family stayed at the Governors Inn for 5 days. The absolutely most important part of travel for my family is to stay in a clean, bug free hotel. The rooms are VERY clean, the beds comfortable and there were plenty of clean, large towels for a family of 4 with teenagers. It was a great stay for a very... More

I spent one night of a 2-night Williamsburg stay at the Governor's Inn, and wish I'd spent both nights here because of the location. Once I checked in, I didn't need to drive anywhere until I checked out and left town! Colonial Williamsburg, the William & Mary campus, and numerous places to eat and shop are all within a short...

As well as my second review. The Governor's Inn is one of the BEST VALUES I have found in a long time in a hotel. We live in West Central Florida and we make an annual road-trip with our four grandchildren and we pack in a lot of miles and hotel nights on our trips so we have some great... More

Because it is a budget hotel it can be noisy with all the kids running around,but... More

What a delight. Everything was within walking distance. The mini fridge in the room was a pleasant surprise and well used. The room was clean, comfortable, and maintained. We never heard a sound from our neighbors and felt as if we were in absolute peace of a rural setting. The staff was so hospitable, helpful, and courteous. We definitely return!

This hotel is so close to Williamsburg Historic area that you can walk there. The rooms were clean and the comp. breakfast was good. The service staff were nice and the grounds well kept. The price for the hotel was worth it. We will stay here again!
