“Happy President's Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Best Western Historic Area Inn helped to make our President's Day Holiday getaway extra special. Due to an impending snowstorm we aked to change our reservation to come a day early. We were welcomed and got the same great rate we had gotten when we first madeour reservations over a month ago.

Glad you were able to reschedule, that snow storm unfortunately made many people cancel or change their plans. The weather is starting to change so come back and see us in spring if possible, thank you!

The Best Western Plus Historic Area Inn, in Williamsburg, Va. is in the top three of my hotel visits. This location always has spectacular rooms. The rooms are always very clean, especially the bathrooms. The beds are so comfortable that you will always enjoy a good nights sleep. A large parking facility which houses big trucks along with a numerous amount of other vehicles. Dining is another plus. To my knowledge, there's about four restaurants in the area that are in walking distance. Last but not least, the reservation specialists are the kind of people that you would love to encounter at every check-in. Your pleasant stay starts with the very courteous and kind reservation specialists at check-in. Once again, if you're in the area this is the place to visit.

Got a good deal for the hotel. It's a basic Best Western but clean, ample rooms and staff are pleasant. The bathrooms are a bit small. We were with the kids so the pool and jacuzzi were a big hit. It's close to Colonial Williamsburg so very convenient.

We are NEVER dissappointed with our stays at the Best Western Historic Area Inn in Williamsburg VA. The staff, the room, the amenities and the price make our visits to Williamsburg extra enjoyable! The fresh baked cookies are such a nice treat too! It's nice to know that you have a favorite place to stay at your favorite vacation destination!

This is a very good location for visits to Colonial Williamsburg, The York town Battlefield, James town-the first English speaking continuous occupied American settlement . If that is not enough the area has great restaurants, shopping and amusement activities. In addition to all of that it is home to the historic College of William and Mary.

This Best Western Plus?? needs to be renovated. We booked for three nights but left and stayed at another Hotel after the first night. The furniture was old and beat up. The carpet was old. There was tons of caulking around the toilet and rust at the bottom of the bathroom door. There was also a musty smell in the room and it just did not fell clean. The breakfast was just okay. There was not enough room for everyone to eat. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn that we loved for just $10 more a night. (did not include breakfast) We have stayed in some good Best Westerns but this one is the worst. Put some money in the place and fix it up!!!

Room Tip: Find another Hotel!!

We are sorry to hear that we were not able to exceed your expectations. We have improvements scheduled this winter including carpeting. The majority of the hotel rooms and all the hallway carpeting is brand new, remainder of rooms is coming this winter. Thank you for sharing your review.

Good location for touring historical Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.They offer a very good breakfast with multiple choices which are hot and plentiful. Very comfortable queen size beds which I have trouble finding at other chains. Convenient doors to outside near elevator and parking lot for handling luggage. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Lobby was decorated for Christmas and very pleasant.
