Loved the location of this property, and the reviews were good so we thought we would try it. This will be our go to place to stay in Williamsburg from now on. The only downside is often there is a two night minimum stay and sometimes we are just going for one night. The proprietors, Billy and Sharon, are wonderful,... More

The Inn couldn't be in a better location for Colonial Williamsburg and the William and Mary College. Very nice rooms and bathrooms. Excellent breakfasts. The hosts are gracious, helpful and non-intrusive - a winning combination. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Fife & Drum while we were in Williamsburg visiting The College of William & Mary. We found the Inn to be in a perfect location for both the school and Colonial Williamsburg. You can't get more "in the heart" of it all. We were able to walk everywhere and never move our... More

My sister and I stayed at this Inn during a recent visit to colonial Williamsburg. We were looking for a place where we could relax and explore the area. We came without any prior knowledge about what to see and do in the area. Billy the proprietor of the Inn was extremely helpful in giving us advice on what sights... More

As uncle, I took my sister and my nieces and nephew (5 of us total) to Williamsburg for Easter weekend. We rented the Drummers' Cottage, and the location and atmosphere were ideal. My nephew (a junior in high school) wanted to visit the College, and my nieces (younger) were eager to spend time in Colonial Williamsburg. This gem of a... More

We had the most fantastic stay with Billy and Sharon, they were perfect hosts, wonderful comfy room and the best breakfasts of our whole stay, I am now addicted to... More

Stayed in the Drummer's Cottage for spring break. Myself, my husband and our 2 daughters. Perfect! Location, space, parking - all terrific. Wonderful vacation - we will return and only stay here with the kids.

I arrived apx 7:30 pm knowing the office closes at 5pm, but there was no place to park... I ended up 2 blocks away before I could find a spot for my car. Checked in and went to bed - room was nicely furnished. As for the highly vaunted "cookies", there was a plate with 2 lonely chocolate chip cookies... More

Billy S, Owner at Fife & Drum Inn, responded to this review

We are very sorry we did not meet the expectations of this guest. Many of our guests do arrive after we lock the door at 5pm. We always send late arrival information with the guest confirmation. The information includes a parking pass and directions to the Inn parking lot. To date, we have had little problem with this process. We... More

If you've graduated from William and Mary, and you've wanted to really be back there, guess what? You can do it! The secret is to stay at the Fife and Drum Inn, upstairs across from Brown Hall on Prince George Street. The location is perfect, the vibe is comfortable, and it's not just clean...it's really clean everywhere. The sheets smell... More
