Rooms, grounds and entire facility was clean. Friendly staff. I interacted with at least 6 different front desk staff and everyone was great. Salt water pool was sparkling clean as was the kids splash park. If you have kids and you are visiting Williamsburg this is the place to be. Short walk to the Visitors Center and Shuttle Bus service... More

My BF and I stayed at the Woodlands for one week in August with his 12 yo daughter and 9yo son. The value of this hotel is undeniable. First of all, you are staying within walking distance of not only the visitor center but of CW itself. We walked in the first day but it was unbearably hot and after... More

This might be the best located hotel for Colonial Williamsburg, being just steps away from the visitor's center & shuttle, and a decent walk to the historic town itself. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and efficient. The rooms are a decent size for the price and the facilities are reasonably clean. The problem is that during the high season there... More

We stayed two nights at the Woodlands and were very happy with our stay. The pool was very nice and my grand daughters enjoyed it. It's location is a short 10 minute walk to historic Williamsburg and the hotel also offers free shuttle service if you prefer not to walk. I wish that they had a restaurant that served lunch....

This was our second time staying at the Williamsburg Woodlands. We had such an awesome stay last summer that we decided to come back again, this time for twice as long. We still had a good stay, but several things were a little disappointing this time around. The main reason we chose the Woodlands was for the kids activities. We... More

Second time around. The whole family goes to Williamsburg, and we stay here. The food is average. The beds are small, and the remote for the TV was missing for the second year in a row. The location is great, If you are accustomed to staying at a nice hotel, this place is not for you. This is actually one... More

This is an average tourist hotel..... Nothing fancy but just fine for a family trip to the Williamsburg area. It's in a good location and the pool and kids area is nice. They have other on-ground kids/family activities. The breakfast selection is not bad but the dining room is way too small. It's pretty crowded and chaotic. The Huzzah restaurant... More
