“Tremendously convenient to Colonial Williamsburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

This facility is convenient, friendly, well-serviced, and well-worth the visit. My family and I stayed here when visiting Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary. The rooms are relatively spacious, the outdoor pool is clean and well-maintained, the staff is very friendly; the modified continental breakfast is ample and tasty.

We were able to get to the Colonial Williamsburg locale easily, and any information that we needed about C.W. was rapidly provided.

If given the opportunity to return to Williamsburg, we would certainly consider staying here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We stayed for two nights with our teen daughters. Great location--close to the Visitor Center & Shuttles to Williamsburg and Jamestown. We also enjoyed dining at Huzzah's the night we arrived after a full day of driving and sight-seeing. So nice to be close to the hotel. Our teens loved the continental breakfast. It gives the hotel extra value.

Our only complaints: thick, stiff foam pillows that didn't yield to one's head. The pull-out sofa, while fine for younger kids, was pretty uncomfortable for teenagers to share. A little more attention to sleeping comfort would make this a really great place to stay.

Stayed here for two nights starting on 4/12/12. The staff was excellent, always greeting you with a smile and at check-in we received all kinds of information and tips regarding Williamsburg. The location is very convenient, just a short walk to Williamsburg (8 mins) or you can hop on the free shuttle next door at the Visitor Center. They also have a shuttle to Busch Gardens which was very convenient (no paying for parking) and they have another to Jamestown. Breakfast was the only down side to the entire stay. It was very crowded and noisy, you could usually find a seat if you were willing to share table with some other people. . It's probably less crowded during the week, but then again maybe not, it is a popular tourist destination. As for the food itself, they had eggs both days and they were horrible. The ham was good on Saturday, but the sausage the next day was greasy. They had pastries, fruit, yogurt, toast and cereal also. After tasting the eggs, I stuck with the cold items. Other people have mentioned the Standard room beds are small and they are. If you are here for a weekend they are fine for two people, I mean how much time are you going to spend in your room. If you are there for a longer stay you may want to consider an upgrade to a suite for more room and a bigger bed.

Room Tip: If you are here for a weekend the standard rooms with the double beds are fine for two people. The...

First the positives: Right at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center. Booked as part of package deal including Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens, good value. Staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel was clean.
Negatives: Included breakfast was in a conference center down the street. It was cold in the morning, so my family did not want to go. We went one breakfast and it was ok. My family sent me out the rest of the week. The thing that will keep me from this hotel again are the small beds. They say they are two doubles but they are barely bigger than twins. Too small to double up with unless they are small children. We upgraded to the suite, which is a single king sized bed and a pullout queen. The pullout was unusable so we slept three in the king (which was still better than the super small doubles), which is crazy considering the extra I had to pay to get into this room.
Busch Gardens was not far away and we loved the vacation. We will come back to the area again, but will not stay here.

Stayed here for a weekend getaway to Williamsburg. The sink was dirty and the suite's pullout couch is not usable. Due to renovations, the free breakfast is a short walk away. Breakfast was not great, but considering what you can get in Williamsburg at the various "pancake and waffle houses" you're better off eating here - whin is sad. +Hotel was quiet.

This is our standard when visiting Williamsburg as a value accommodation. Really cute rooms, good size. Bathrooms adequate, and the Colonial Williamsburg toiletries are great. Great location- quick walk to the historic area. Breakfast is included, and is more than the generic muffin and juice. Have hot and cold options.

Room Tip: Breakfast is included, but the breakfast room is always crowded. If you have one of the suites go g...

We booked a 3 day-2nighs stay at this hotel as part of the package which included admission to Colonial Williamsburg. We had a deluxe king suite, which was the most expensive room, with a pullout sofa in the living room. I was disappointed when I got keys from the room and quickly looked at the room before bringing our bags. A huge air-conditioning/electric unit outside blocked almost all window in the room. I requested a room with a view and it was a disappointment. I asked to change the room and hotel stuff tried to help me, but second room had not a great view as well and overlooked a back yard with some technical houses and employers parking lot. Room has all we needed - fridge, microwave, flat screen TV in the living room and one more smaller TV in the bedroom. Living room was very cold at night and we couldn’t find any thermostat to adjust temperature there, smaller size bedroom with kind bed had a wall heater/air-conditioning unit, so it was no problem with temperature. Hotel has a free continental breakfast, but included a ‘powered’ scrambled eggs and not a high quality breakfast items, but it was enough to start a day, we had breakfast at Colonial Pancake House a second morning. Hotel is just next door to the visitor center and we walked there to gift shots one morning. We used a car to drive to colonial Williamsburg, but there is a walkway from the hotel to get there. Hotel has a playground for kids and a pool, which opens during summer months. Hotel rooms has some nice décor and photos with views of some colonial houses . Altogether we liked our stay, but I didn’t have any special feel at this hotel and will probably try other hotels next time.
