“Great location for a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Let me start off by saying that the hotel just completed a renovation shorty before our arrival. We had the two bedroom suite which was very comfortable. Can hear some hallway traffic from inside the room, but not at bedtime.

This hotel is less then a 10 minute drive to Colonial Williamsburg. I booked several months in advance and the rates contiued to drop so keep on checking to save a few dollars.

AM breakfast was typical for a Residence Inn but the food area is a little tight when it gets crowded.

Hotel has a smaller outdoor pool which was closed when we visited, however, they did offer us to use the indoor pool at the adjoing Marriott property.

Cleaning staff not fully with the program paying attention to details.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful, especially Sal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the main road side.

Spent one night during a girls get away trip to the outlets shopping. Great location to access all the outlets and speciality shops. Wonderful breakfast with the best coffee and eggs I've ever had at a hotel comp breakfast. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms where very large and sound proof. Our suite had 2 queen beds in a bedroom and a pull out sofa in the living room. Lots of space for 4 women to spread out, relax and sleep. Hotel was very clean and located in walking distance to restaurants. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Our room was 106 and super quiet. Away from the elevator and close to a side door to the parking lo...

My family which includes 2 small dogs stayed here for one week from Oct.13 to Oct. 20th 2012. We arrived to find our room ready and in perfect condtition. The staff was so friendly and more than ready to help me and my family in any way they could. I will start this by saying that the lady named Juanita greated us upstairs at our room in the hall way and told us she would be taking care of us while we stayed here. She cleaned our room every day and I do mean she CLEANED that room. She was very personable and made us feel right at home. Sal the manager greeted us later in our stay and was more than eager to see to any and all of our needs. I could not ask for a better place to stay. The dogs were also more than welcomed there and no one gave us strange looks as we took them down the elevator to the dog walk area. Which I would like to point out was also kept clean. I will stay there every time we go to Williamsburg which is usually once or twice a year. The morning breakfast and the evening social dinners were excellent, the food was very simple and very good.

Room Tip: Choose a room that best suits your needs such as one or two bedrooms.

This was my first time staying at a residence inn and I was so extremely impressed by both the staff and quality of this hotel. The location is perfect for a trip to colonial williamsburg and only 7 miles from busch gardens. It is centrally located to several food venues and the outlets. I can't say enough about the rooms. I was extremely surprised with the size, layout, amenities and decor of the room. It was absolutely perfect and charming. The hotel also has a pretty good breakfast that changes daily. Overall this was an A+++ hotel in my books. We will definately be staying here again in the future!

Nicely decorated, well maintained. Granite kitchens and bath. Quiet area, spacious suites with two large 42" flat panels, one in the living area and one in the bedroom. Bathroom mirror is lit from the back. Location has three regular sized washers and dryers ($2 per load to wash or dry). Good breakfast choices including hot scrambled eggs, sausage and hash. Evening reception is simple and nothing to really fill you up.

Comfortable and clean. Beds were great. Air conditioning is central but somewhat noisy (above a whisper of white noise) in the bedroom, but it did not bother me after a long day at Colonial Williamsburg. Almost a full kitchen with full refrigerator and have stove top. Great location and place to stay while in Williamsburg.

We stayed at the Residence Inn Williamsburg VA in October 2012.
As a business traveler, I've stayed at Residence Inn's many times and have always found them to be clean and comfortable. This was no exception.
We had the King Suite and , if there was one disapointment, it was that, unlike many of the other Residence Inn's, this one did not have the "separate" bedroom. It was one big room. That was ok for me as a business traveler, but in traveling with my wife, there were nights where she wanted to sleep and I was still keyed up. With the separate bedroom, she could have hit the sack and I could have watched the TV. As it was, she went to sleep and I had the TV on but the sound down real low. It still made it difficult for her to sleep, but it would have been the same thing in any other regular hotel.
The Residence Inn comes with a full kitchen, which came in handy with some leftovers from the restaurants we ate at. They serve a free breakfast in the lobby which included eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurts, cereals, muffins, etc. No need to go out and spend big money on a breakfast.
The one issue we did have was that while we were there, they apparently had decided to repave the parking lot so we could not drive around to the back where our room was. The hotel shares the parking lot with the Spring Hill Suites (another Marriot property) so sometimes, you had to park closer to the Spring Hill Suites than the Residence Inn. But...that's not an ongoing problem. It just happened to be occuring when we were there.
