This B&B was so charming! I came with my daughter on a school tour. It was cute and cozy. We loved the breakfast and evening cookies. The owner was super friendly and helpful. It was conveniently located within walking distance of the W&M campus. We didn't see any other guests at night so it felt like our own personal house.

My wife and I really enjoyed staying here! Close to everything, impeccably clean, nicely decorated (in colonial motif). The bed was very comfortable, and to my surprise, the shower was large and very modern plus a nice shower head with strong water flow! The lounging area always had fresh cookies, fruit, coffee and tea! The owners were very friendly. And... More

Fife & Drum Inn is a gem in Williamsburg. The owner is so friendly and knowledgable of the city. The buffet breakfast is great...hot food + fruit + juice, coffee/tea. Snacks are left for the guests, including chips, lemonade and baked cookies + 24/7 coffee/tea. The rooms are lovely and clean. The Inn is located steps from Duke of Gloucester... More

Daughter and I only spent one night, but we were pleased overall. I agree with some of the minor quibbles posted earlier; freshly cooked eggs, maybe cottage cheese and yogurt, and bottled water would be a nice addition to breakfast ( though the quiche-y casserole and fresh fruit was quite good today). Room temperature does continue to be an issue... More

My sister and I have traveled many places and always enjoy B&Bs. This one is very charming, with an excellent location if you plan is to be near Colonial Williamsburg. The breakfast was buffet style and good, but not at the top of our list. Noise was an issue, our room, charming as it was, was down the hall from... More

This is a very clean and quaint bed and breakfast in Williamsburg. It has a family feel and the service is great. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because you can hear people in the hallways all day and it is distracting at times. Overall we highly recommend this place, especially because the location is prime real... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Fife and Drum Inn two weeks ago for Illumination Weekend in Williamsburg. We could not have been happier with our stay. The rooms, the breakfast and the location were ideal. It is located in Merchants Square and is easily walkable to Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the Webster H. room. LIked it but it is a better choice for a short one night stay. However, on weekends they have a 2 night minimum, so we are unlikely to stay again, unless it is a week night. B&B was established about 10 years ago and converted from apts so it... More

We stayed in the separate cottage. Nice price for 5+ people as it seems hotel rooms in Williamsburg are rather expensive for what you get. Quiet, clean, plenty of room. Kids liked the small bunk area for them.

We just returned from another wonderful visit to the charming Fife and Drum Inn. This is probably our 10th or 11th year and truly would not change to any other location. Billy and Sharon, the Inn Keepers and their amazing right hand person, Rhonda are such warm and friendly people and very helpful in guiding their guests in what to... More
