We were referred to this hotel because most hotels do not accommodate a family of five, we would have to book two rooms which is definitely out of the budget. We received a king size bed with a full size sleep sofa, it was just right for us and reasonable in price. The comp. breakfast was awesome, lots of variety.

I only stay in Best Western's and most offer the same, high quality experience, offering similar decors and accommodations. The Governor's Inn is one of a handful of BW's which offer a mix of the familiar upgraded amenities with a touch of the history of the original place still intact. The painted faux-woodgrained doors and wrought iron gates are welcome... More

Nice hotel that's set back from the road so it's quiet. Brick outside, brick and stone inside rooms. Pretty. Nice woodwork on ceiling. Firm beds. Breakfast was very good and the girl providing everything was an exemplary worker. The tv did not receive The Weather Channel as stated on the available list and the lighting in room could have used... More

We were in Richmond for a graduation and needed a quiet yet convenient place to stay. The rates were very reasonable and instead of staying one night and looking further, we stayed the four nights and were very happy. The breakfasts were also very good.

This hotel had all the niceties I've come to expect from a BW Plus and then some. Typical great staff, a breakfast Denny's should copy and a location close to everything. Then...

We went to the Nascar Race. We used this hotel last year when we came and the rooms were okay. But this year was a much better experience. The room was newly renovated! Really enjoyed the new tv and new decor. The bathroom was newly renovated too.
