Billy and Sharon are wonderful hosts, quick to share their knowledge of Williamsburg, both past and present. The Inn is a little hard to find as there is only a sign over a single door at street level. The entire Inn is upstairs, but Billy is at the ready to help with bags. The stairs would, however, be an issue... More

The main reason we choose the Fife and Drum Inn was due to its location . We wanted to stay near the historic district so that we could walk to all the attractions. The Inn is very charming and decorated in the Williamsburg tradition. The breakfast was filling and delicious and snacks were available at all times. Our inn keeper... More

This inn has a really warm and cozy feel to it. Sharon and Billie were welcoming, helpful and gracious. Room was most comfortable. Great location across the street from numerous shops. I walked everywhere. I would return in a heart beat.

An outstanding location with great comfort. Service was outstanding as was the room and food. We will definately be bad and I highly recommend staying here. Ask about restaurant recommendations, Billy made some great suggestions.

We loved our stay at the Fife & Drum Inn B&B. Our room looked out at William & Mary College diagonally across the street. It had painted floors, a roomy bathroom & shower and delicious breakfasts. The TV nook area in the dining room had hot drinks & cookies 24/7. The entire B&B is upstairs in the Scruggs Bldg. Next... More

We have stayed here a total of six nights over the years. The location is great and the inn itself is a joy. And the breakfast is the best ever! The only disappointment we ever had was there were no chocolate chip cookies left when we returned late after the July 4th fireworks. We love those cookies!

Wonderful inn! It was our second time staying and we will be back again. Great location, accommodations, and customer service. It is located near the historic shopping area and is just two blocks from the historic structures of Colonial Williamsburg. Highly recommend.

This hotel is a bit hard to find since it is on the second floor. Even with the GPS it took us a minute to find it. That said, it is very conveniently placed, parking is nearby, the breakfast was good, and the room was excellent. I might recommend a bit more table space since several of the tables in... More

We stayed here for a College Visit. We arrived after 6 pm, but we were able to check in our room with the note/keys that were left on the front door. We stayed in the Restoration Room which was perfect for the 3 of us. Great shower too! The breakfast was good and ample and loved that you could have... More

The hotel is set up much like a bed & breakfast. There is no formal check in desk. The rooms are on the second floor so there is a stair case to negotiate. We stayed in the small "cottage" down the street from the main facility. Billy and Sharon were gracious and very helpful on things to do. The rooms... More
