“A Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A very nice low key hotel with easy access to the Historic Area. The king size rooms are indeed that. Well appointed, comfortable and great for couples. Our package included room, breakfast, the attractions and a $100 gift card that bought dinner at the hotel. We were there mid-week and it was very quiet. The staff was very helpful. The Lodge is a step up over the Woodlands, and lacks the stuffiness of the Inn.

I've lost count of the number of times I've been to Williamsburg. It's one of my favorite places. We always stay at the Colonial Houses or the Lodge. Although I prefer the Colonial Houses for their ambiance, the Lodge was more convenient for our girls' getaway. The location is wonderful. It's just a short walk to the historic area, and the spa is across the street. The Williamsburg loop bus stops right in front of the Lodge. There's also a bus stop for a shuttle service to a few non-Williamsburg attractions across the street.

We reserved two rooms, and were unable to get adjoining rooms. But the reservationist said she would request that our rooms be near each other. We arrived around 7:30 PM, and I'm sure most guests had already checked in, so I was a bit worried. But I shouldn't have worried. Colonial Williamsburg hotels know how to get it right. Our rooms were right next to each other.

We were in one of the new "guesthouses" across the parking area from the main building. Rooms here are beautifully decorated with folk art. My room had two queen beds with colonial-style coverlets. There was a wing chair and a comfy rocker for sitting. The desk was a good size, and a large armoire held the flat-screen TV, small fridge, and had some drawer space for clothes. One nice touch was a permanent shelf for a suitcase, instead of one of those folding things.

The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. There was turndown service (and chocolates!) in the evening.

The bathroom was large with a fantastic shower and plenty of counter space, even with part of it taken up by the coffeemaker (Keurig). There were plenty of towels, but they were a bit smaller than I'd like. I wish they'd use the towels the spa has, those are enormous! But they made up for the small towels by providing nice terry bathrobes.

Colonial Williamsburg's hotels are a bit pricey, but the service and location can't be beat. Another nice service is if you buy anything in the Colonial Williamsburg shops, your purchases will be delivered to your hotel. Plus, they help support Colonial Williamsburg, which is important to me.

Check out their packages. Some include a gift card, which you can use at their shops and restaurants.

I stayed at this hotel last week while attending a conference. The hotel is great - love the decor, which is in keeping with Colonial Williamsburg. The conference center is really nice and the various buildings are connected with covered walkways. Best of all, just a short walk and you're in Colonial Williamsburg where you can explore at your leisure. I had one of the best hamburgers I've ever had at the hotel restaurant and the hotel staff is great! If you want to experience Colonial Williamsburg, staying here is a must!!!

We stayed here this year for W&M homecoming weekend (having been ousted from the Hospitality House since it was sold to the College). What is perfect about this property is that it has all the amenities of a big hotel but all the charm and quaintness of a smaller, colonial inn. We could not have been more pleased, and are already looking forward to returning again next year for W&M homecoming weekend -- if not sooner! We were in the Custis Guest House and it was lovely.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor in the Custis Guest House and it was fine -- quiet enough in the morning...

a fine stay---it was a great location, adjacent to the sites we wanted to see. we had nice rooms-maintained well; there were good food options--great variety and reasonably priced. discounted tickets were available for the historic area.
for the off hours,it had indoor and outdoor pools and a modern exercise also an expansive lobby area for reading or small gatherings.

We stayed at the Williamsburg Lodge over Columbus Day Weekend. We could not have been happier. Our room was wonderful and our bathroom was spacious with a great shower. We ate breakfast here twice and had the Seafood buffet on Friday night. We were supposed to go to the pig roast at Shields but it was rained out. Not only is it convenient to walking to the historic area, but the shuttle buses run about every 10-15 minutes. They also provided a hotel shuttle bus to take us to the different taverns for dinner and they got us closer than the regular shuttle and would pick us up when we were done. We even took it to the Inn for Sunday brunch since it was pouring rain. Everyone at the Lodge could not have been nicer. We thought we had lost my husband's jacket and they went out of their way to help us find it.
We will definitely stay here the next time we go back to Williamsburg.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the Ashby House it is close to the main lobby and restaurant.

My best friend likes to stay here because of the location and the supporting of historic Williamsburg. You can purchase tickets to events in historic Williamsburg through the Lodge Concierge, which is convenient. A pool with hot tub is available, but it's in a different building across the street.
Our first room (March 2012) had a little historic charm. Our second room (June 2012) was in a newer section, and it felt more like a dorm room.
It's comfortable, and I'm all for supporting historic Williamsburg, but for the cost, I was disappointed. The cost high and changes based on occupancy. You only find out the true cost when you check out and get the bill. The occupancy was high during our second visit, and one of the nights cost $300, which really isn't supported by the accommodations. Don't expect a luxurious experience.
