We arrived at the Colonies around 5:30. The traffic getting there was heavy due to graduations at various colleges and universities. Check in went smoothly. The only thing we didn't like about check-in was that they sent you to a different desk for your parking pass which was really an excuse to try to get you to take a time... More

Don't settle for the chain hotels. Take a look at this property first. Located within easy driving distance to Colonial Williamsburg and William & Marry University, it's a great place for families. Good restaurants close by.

We just did an exchange for a week at the Colonies and were very happy with our stay. We have had condos that were bigger and fancier but the thing we liked was that it is a real two bedroom/two bathroom unit and not a one bedroom with a lock-off like we have had before. It was clean and very... More
