To celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary, we decided to stay at the colonial house in a queen tavern room. We got to the Williamsburg Inn for check in and we were impressed with the level of service they provided us at check in. Everything in our itinerary from dinner reservations to tickets for evening activities were all put together and... More

We rented Orlando Jones office and I can't say enough about the location of this property. We felt like we woke up every morning living in the 18th century. The property was very well maintained & the rooms we spacious. I loved walking off of our porch right into the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. I love staying at these properties.... More

My husband and I stayed in the Ewing house for our 50th anniversary last week. For the most part we were quite pleased with it. There were three rooms in the house: a bedroom with a double canopy bed (the bath was off the bedroom), a sitting room with a fireplace, and a kitchen with table and chairs, a sink,... More

My wife and I traveled to Williamsburg VA for a weekend trip. Understand that I am a total History Geek and Williamsburg is my favorite weekend get away. This trip we stayed in the Merchants Square Tavern, It is one of the historic buildings and is smack in the middle of the historic area. We also took our bikes with... More

We stayed here one night and had the most magical time! We stayed in the Moody kitchen and it was so picturesque. Granted, there were a few small issues but nothing that really detracted from our stay (shower drained extremely slowly, had to have the heat up high to keep it warm enough), and really with these old buildings one...

We have been visiting Williamsburg for over forty years and have often stayed in the Williamsburg Inn properties. We are so disappointed in the decline of this famous, beautiful, and until now--in our minds--exemplary location. We spent two nights in the Brick House Tavern on Duke of Gloucester street. The room in nicely decorated in the colonial style. One of... More

I used to visit Williamsburg often when my daughter was in college there and I usually picked a moderately priced motel. Sixteen years ago my wife and I stayed in the Peter Hays Kitchen, one of the Colonial Houses. Since then we have returned 3 times and each time we have chosen to stay in the Colonial Houses, twice in... More

We stayed in a Williamsburg Colonial house the week before Thanksgiving. House was located right next to Christina Campbell's Tavern. . The House was clean and the staff was very friendly and helped us with a couple of minor issues with the house very quickly. The fireplace was great for the kids toasting marshmallows and warming up on the unseasonable... More

A number of weeks before our stay at the Cheswell-Bucktrout House, a reservation agent was kind enough to go over all of the rooms which were available. We decided on Room 3035, a large room upstairs in the house. When we checked in, this room was occupied -- with no excuse or reason given for this error. We were put... More

My fiancé and I decided to quietly just the two of us get married and we chose colonial williamsburg. Having been there before we liked the atmosphere and history of the area. By the time I booked the reservation there were only 2 colonial houses to choose from. I picked the 2nd floor of the lightfoot tenement, the layout of... More
