Stayed with friends from out of town for three days. It is an older hotel but very clean and the indoor pool is also very clean and heated with a hot tub. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT? Well, Colonial Williamsburg is just across the street from the hotel, can't beat that. Whenever I have friends in town for a great... More

The Quality Inn Historic East is a great hotel that offers a comfortable room, great in door swimming pool, free breakfast, outstanding and professional staff always willing to help, and most of all is within walking distance to the Williamsburg Historic area and a short drive to Busch Gardens and Yorktown and Jamestown and many James River Plantation Mansions are...

Where do I begin! The only thing I can say that is positive is that the Staff is very friendly at Check-In. Everything went down hill from there. Upon walking into the room we where immediatly hit with the smell of cigerates. The beds where Full Beds and not the typical Queen beds in other hotel chains. The room is... More

If you need a quick clean place to rest, this is it. Expect nothing and you will be pleased. I found the breakfast to be adequate. The wifi is great and fast, the beds ok. Don't spend a lot you will be ok. Close to everything, less than 10 min to Busch Gardens.Your classic budget motel.

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay but don't have very many standards this place might be for you. Rooms are old and outdated. Getaway with my husband as we live in different states- we couldn't even enjoy ourselves. The only thing that was what we expected was the pool. And it was moved with kids from open... More

Based upon the price point of this hotel, we were not expecting luxury...however this hotel could not manage a "poor" rating. After waiting to check in (not because of a line, but a vacant front desk), we found our room to smell musty, the bath tub was dirty, and the bedsheets contained a potato chip. In two separate spots, the... More

Very clean property, friendly knowledgeable staff, great location, breakfast was bountiful and appealing. Definitely will return on my next visit to the area. Rooms were very nice only negative is channel selections, but when you visit a resort town there is more than TV to do or watch.

We chose this hotel for its price and location while visiting Colonial Williamsburg, and weren't disappointed. It is within comfortable walking distance to the historical district, so we were able to avoid driving and parking near the attractions. The rooms were spacious, and much of the furnishings were clean and in good shape. The building is old, and it shows... More

Very convenient to Busch Gardens which was the purpose of a quick visit. The room was very comfortable and the staff was very hospitable. The price was very reasonable for a summer weekend. Was not there long enough to enjoy any amenities except breakfast which was more than adequate to start the day. Would certainly consider coming back for any... More
