Spent one night here and was warmly welcomed by Chelsea with a smile. The inn is clean and handsomely decorated with turquoise and gray tile. Everything seemed new and attractive. The location was not a disadvantage. The pool is a definitive plus as is the exercise room. Will definitely return.

Clean, except dark tile floor. Queen beds, not full. Attractive. Decent (some hot) continental breakfast. Excellent coffee. Floor space big enough for small kids sleeping bags, but no bigger, if you rent the two bed room. Reasonable rates. Although not out the front door, it is only about 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg.

This hotel is relatively new and the decor is attractive. Main lobby is spacious and welcoming. Chelsea, the front desk person who checked me in, was marvelous. Room key cards are the latest proximity type that don't need to be inserted. My room was not large but comfortable, well appointed with all typical amenities except a small safe. Bedding was...

Stay one day - excellent location (if you have a car) - close to supermarket -one of the few in williamsburg. The breakfast is decent as is the newspaper. The staff is professional and the rooms , especially the bed very nice.

Check-in was smooth and pleasant. The staff was friendly. I stayed on 5th floor (#522) in King Exec. Good sized room. Quiet with ample lighting. Fridge placement was not the best being at front door but it may have something to do with noise level for guest. Full bath with shower if you need both. The only thing that stood... More

We were absolutely delighted with this property and our stay here over the Thanksgiving weekend. Why it was a surprise is that we had such a terrible time making reservations through the corporate site and phone. We had to correct them a few times after we had received email confirmations. Next time, we will deal ONLY with the specific property.... More

this is a good basic hotel. No problems. The special deal made it a good choice. The breakfast was nothing special but it beats leaving the hotel for fast food. There are discount store nearby. So, if you are looking for something basic and reasonable in cost, this is your hotel.

My sister, daughter-in-law and I just returned home from a 2-night stay at this hotel. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room was pleasant and was cleaned daily. We were very comfortable - each evening, they accommodated our request for extra towels without any problems. The only reason that I rated this hotel a 3 was because of the... More

I can't remember the last time I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, but this hotel definitely surpassed my expectations during a recent three-night stay in Williamsburg. While its location isn't the best for those coming to spend most of their time in the historic section of Williamsburg, it's right off the highway. This gives you easy access to the... More
