We recently stayed at the Governor's Inn at Colonial williansburg and had a great time. The room, although not luxurious, was clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed from shampoo to plenty of towels. The grounds were nicely landscaped and service was terrific. The continental breakfast served every morning was delicious. there was a wide range of choices... More

Great hotel for the money. I booked directly from the hotel and paid $80 per night. This is a Colonial Williamsburg hotel, so we could ride the bus for free and get discounted tickets. We saved $20 on Colonial Williamsburg tickets alone. It was a short walk into Williamsburg. This was our 5th time visiting (our son attends William and... More

This is the budget hotel of Colonial Williamsburg Village. Hotel room is basic, very clean, and in walking distance to the Village, and from the Amtrak Station. The hotel staff was absolutely wonderful, friendly and helpful. Some of the friendliest staff that I've ever encountered in a hotel. They really made the stay wonderful. The breakfast buffet is good.

This is the least expensive of the official Colonial Williamsburg hotels. It's in a great location, very close to the visitor's center and a short walk to Merchant's Square shops. But the place is old and needs a lot of updating. The shower was nice and hot, the A/C unit worked well and the flat screen TV was nice. The... More

Great for the price, super clean. Will stay here again. Walking distance to everything. Restaurants near by stop serving food at 10 pm. The pool was super clean and nice. The employees were awesome and nice. They went above and beyond for everything.

We stayed here 2 summers ago and had a great time. It's great quality for a good value. We requested 2 adjoining rooms for our entire family and they made sure we got it. We had a great time and enjoyed the free shuttle service to Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, and Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms were decent and clean.... More

This hotel was as nice as could be expected for the price. I was looking for something affordable, and I found it. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. I do wish there was a microwave in our room, but there was one in the main building so that's fine. The hotel is... More

Affordable place to stay within walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg. Employees personable. Rooms nicely appointed and comfortable. Breakfast room has good selections. On busy mornings, an additional breakfast area is available one flight up.

A good value for the money. The breakfast area is excellent!!! It is very clean, beautifully decorated, welcoming, and the many choices of food are delicious! It is within walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg and Merchant's Square.

We traveled to Colonial Williamsburg for Virginia Fashion Week with plans to return home that evening. The show ran late and we needed a place to stay that was close to the William & Mary campus. I had seen this motel coming in to town and didn't think very highly of it at the time. A friend was staying there... More
