“Always wanted to stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We live in the area and have seen this hotel as we go to Colonial Williamsburg it is literally across the street ( parking lot ) from the Visitors Center. Always wanted to stay but thought it was costly. I was there for a conference and the conference center is beautiful as the sitting area has a window with a view to the Forrest and changing leaves. You have to use your room key to get into the hotels parking area. There truly are not enough parking spaces near the rooms themselves. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated , lg tv on wall, sitting area and desk. no fridge or microwave and a coffee machine. my only problem and reason for the three rating were the thin walls. I heard the persons tv loud and clear and at night snoring as clear as anything. I had to turn the heat on higher to drown out the noise. They offer a nice continental breakfast that does include a tasty ham and not so tasty scrambles eggs. The rest is typical hotel fare. The coffee was great. The staff were friendly and helpful

After a conference at Hampton, we opted to spend an extra day and see Colonial Williamsburg. We were easily accommodated at the last minute by a professional and friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful in getting us oriented and information concerning the historic district. Workout facility was nice. We went to breakfast early and had it to ourselves at first but it filled fast. Food was acceptable, staff was pleasant. We were able to get nourishment without additional expense. We hopped a bus right next door at the visitor center for a late night visit to the firing in the brick yard and took the last bus back to the hotel. We took the first bus out in the am and was in the historic district in less than 10 minutes without cranking a car or looking for parking. I will stay here again and very soon.

Room Tip: If you need something, just ask. We found them responsive and very helpful at all hours of the day...

Great accommodations and amenities close to visitor center and access to Historic Village. An added plus, breakfast buffet included with many healthy choices. Price point a great value including discounts in the Village. Would highly recommend and repeat visit at this hotel location. Try it, you'll like it!

Location, location, location! The equivalent of staying at the Grand Californian at Disneyland...just not as nice. The rooms and linens were clean; the beds not so good...like sleeping in a hammock. Included breakfast buffet was good but very busy with tour bus groups.
If you can plan ahead you can probably find a great deal. Our rate seemed almost too good to be true; about $120/night and included breakfast and tickets to Colonial Williamsburg for our family of four.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if you enjoy a quiet room in better condition. We changed when we arrived.

Clean and well maintained but even though you are near the visitor's center you don't have any sense of really being in The Historic District. Its not a far walk but not something you'd want to do at night. You might as well stay at any of the chains on Richmond Road.

Staff ranged from helpful to far more interested in her cell phone than me. Hot part of breakfast dreadful and greasy but fruit, cereal, etc perfecty fine. Pretty room with windows that actually open. VERY uncomfortable bed and pillows and a dreadful acryllic blanket.

If you really want the "Colonial Willliamsburg" experience, spend the extra money and stay at the Lodge or, better yet, in one of the Colonial Houses.

We stayed here this week while we were in Colonial Williamsburg. They serve breakfast every morning and alternate the hot items they serve. You won'leave hungry. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. We are close enough to walk to Williamsburg and since we were right next to the visitor center we could also take the bus when we wanted to. You will enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms near the ice machine

This was a perfectly located hotel for anyone visiting Williamsburg, as the visitors' center is just a short walk away and the shuttle stops there for those who want a ride into the colonial village. The hotel itself was clean and the rooms more than adequate. The breakfast, I thought, was under par, however. The first day, our pancakes were cold and the eggs runny. The pastries were dry and not appetizing either. The breakfast area has a good layout with stations of some sort in several corners of the room, so many people can partake of breakfast at the same time. I've just had better. We would stay here again, however, because convenience was everything when spending a day or two at Williamsburg!
