“Good value, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Grabbed a deal on a last minute trip to Williamsburg, Va. Best Western Plus was easy to locate right off of Route 60. The location of the hotel is great. There are numerous resturants nearby and it is close to all the attractions. We checked in late at night and the front desk staff was very friendly. Our room had two beds and a renovated bathroom. We asked for a rollaway bed also and received it within 8 minutes. The hotel has an indoor pool and provides free breakfast in the morning consisting of eggs, sausage, french toast sticks, bread, english muffins, cinnamon rolls, muffins, 3 different cereals, fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, and milk. This is a very good value hotel in a great location.

On a recent week-end in early June, 2013 we found that the staff and facility where excellent and convent to the Historic Williamsburg Site. There are convent restaurants to this location. I would recommend that you check out this location and you will find it is a best value in the area.

Room Tip: ask to the king bed suite with the jacuzzi tub.

we were at this hotel for 4 days recently and I have to say that this is a hotel that is the definition of southern hospitality. the staff from housekeeping to breakfast was incredible. the rooms were nice and roomy and clean. our housekeeper jamar was very nice and attended to all of our requests without hesitation. the desk staff were always friendly and spoke to us each time we saw them. breakfast attendee perry was kept the breakfast stocked and clean. and gave us extra time in the morning to get fed. just an all out nice place.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here while in town for a family wedding. The check in staff was overly friendly, even apologizing for the terrible traffic encountered on the way there. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were nothing fancy, but quite comfortable after a long day. The fridge and microwave in room was a great touch as was the free breakfast and warm cookies set out when we arrived. The location is excellent....central to much of williamsburg and easy access to interstate and other main roads. My only gripe is the walls seem a little thin. Our room is near elevator so it would probably help to be toward the end of the hall, but we did hear quite a bit of walking/talking in the halls as we settled down to bed. Overall, I feel we chose a great value hotel.

I was checked in and out so fast and easy. Thanks. Quick stay after day in Busch gardens. Our pick every time. They are so nice and friendly. Clean. Breakfast is okay but enough to fill our stomach before going back into park. Would recommend.

Average room, average beds. Kids enjoyed pool. Breakfast was mediocre....We hated seeing the "ultra-pasteurized" milk....just more chemical laden garbage. It was good for a one night stay on a road trip. We stayed here largely because it was one of the few non smoking no pet motels we could find on our route to the beach.

Room Tip: We like upper floors. Back entrance area to building stayed wet... might want to ask for a room acc...

I was there for a bass tournament and the room was booked by a third party. As far as the room itself I have no complaints. The room had two queen beds and a large screen TV, fridge, microwave and a coffee pot and the bed slept very well. There were no outside outlets to charge my boat batteries and I couldn't even open the window to run an extension cord. I would stay here with my family but not when working (which is bass fishing).
