I spend a lot of time there and I think it is pretty cozy. I haven't seen any bugs or slept on any broken beds and walked in to a bunch of stains or murder scenes. I have read several of these reviews and honestly can't believe some of the things that people have had to say because I haven't... More

After a half an hour of confusion we were told that they had to place us in the brick building. We were told that those rooms cost more but since that is what they had, they put us there. The room looked like a murder scene. There were stains everywhere! The carpet was covered in animal fur and we didn't... More

We have been coming to Williamsburg for 20 years and have previously enjoyed our stay at the White Lion. It was never fancy, but was always clean and comfortable, and in a good location. We had not been since 2005 and when we went in October of 2009 I could not believe the change. When I made the reservation, I... More

The rooms are small and broken down. One of the beds was broke on one side. The AC didnt work very well at all and when house keeping came in they would turn it off so it was 90 degrees when we returned at night. They never left towels in the room and the Bin Laden looking guy behind the... More

We have stayed here many times in the past. It seems as maybe there are new owners now. We used to stay in the cottages near the pool. This time we were assigned a room in the brick building at the back of the property. The room was NASTY and the next morning we discovered what looked like blood on... More

We have stayed at this motel on several earlier trips. It was at one time a nice clean place in a good location. We made a reservation for an efficiency with a kitchenette for seven days, and when we arrived, they did not have the room we requested ready for us. Wanted to put us in a tiny musty cabin.... More

I've read some of the other reviews raving about this hotel and I wonder where they went! My boyfriend and I ended up here after a long day on the historic williamsburg trails.It looked cute from the outside. Boy were we in for a surprize! We went into a room that was smelly, dingy, old looking and feeling. But, we... More

We just stayed at the White Lion Motel in Williamsburg. We booked a spacious efficiency that easily slept all 5 of us with two beds and a pull out couch and had a great kitchenette with its own sink, tons of cabinets, a refrigerator and microwave. We supplied an electric fry pan and cooking utensils. It was only minutes from... More
