I'm partial to Hilton properties, and was a little disappointed when I saw a conference I was attending had chosen this hotel for lodging. My experience with Holiday Inn Express has been mixed, but this property was definitely the best among the ones in which I have stayed. The room was clean and spacious, and the desk staff was pleasant.... More

This hotel is conveniently located to Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and the Busch brewery. There are plenty of restaurants nearby as well and the outlet mall is only about 3 miles away. The bed was very comfortable and we slept soundly. The lobby had free cookies in the evening but supply is limited. They were already gone when we checked... More

I booked this hotel by accident, thinking I was booking the Holiday Inn and Suites (not Express) that's a few blocks away and, I understand, newer and better (#2 on TA as of this writing). Bottom line is that the next time I stay in Williamsburg, I would try somewhere else. It wasn't horrible, but definitely not a place I'd... More

Had the opportunity to stay at this hotel and we were very pleased. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly. Our room was immaculate. It had a sitting area where the desk was located. Where the bed was located there was also another chair with an ottoman. The breakfast that the hotel provides was VERY good.... More

We've been in Williamsburg for 2 days. So location was very important for us in order to squeeze our visit up to the most. And we had this with this hotel! Friendly staff, eager to help and give valuable recommendations. Rooms were big and comfortable. Super clean and the air conditioning great as the weather was really hot. Although the... More

My family and I chose to stay at this hotel due to its proximity to Burch Gardens. The location itself is wonderful. Unfortunately, the first night we had visitors- ants who came to stay. I contacted the front desk and they stated they would have a new room for us in the morning. In the morning I went to the... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and it was very functional. Nice and clean and the staff was very friendly when we arrived. We stayed in a two queen room and it worked out fine for us. Everything in the room worked. Only problem was the breakfast area was too small and crowded. Took a while to get a... More

I stayed in this hotel based on a recommendation from a friend. Hotel staff was extremely friendly and property was clean. We called to receive instructions on how adjust the room temp - instead of walking us step-by-step, the guest service agent came to the room and showed us! There was one incident of bad customer service, however, I think... More

The hotel was clean and well appointed. We stayed on our way to OBX, so it was brief. We did find many food choices locates nearby, and this is also adjacent to Great Wolf Lodge.the only downer was the lack of energy and help provided by the front desk attendant upon arrival. We are Priority Club members, but didn't receive... More
