“Surprise........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

What a pleasant surprise. CI&S is well located, competently staffed, and good quality. The front desk was staffed with knowledgeable helpful personnel, especially Janice. She provided all the help we needed. On a rainy day, the fresh cookies, fresh coffee, and hot tea were a welcomed comfort. Our room was well maintained by hotel staff, but I cannot understand why the absence of plastic bags in the trash cans made for more sanitary conditions - per management. Janet in the breakfast room made each morning a homey experience. She waited for "her ladies" to show up and would be sure that we had fresh made omelets or eggs. Dear, appreciative, and committed staff. Thank you.

This hotel is litterly just up the road from the park. I have been staying at Country Inns for several years, and this is one of the best. We have stayed in these Inns from PA to SC. The best price is not at the front desk, even as a card member, but through the discount websites. I like knowing what I can expect at every Country Inns, and I get to review every hotel after each stay. The Country Inn near Busch Gardens was great. I liked being able to park under the hotel out of the sun and weather, I was there on my motorcycle.

Room Tip: I have used all room options depending on the size of my party. Any issue I had was addressed in a...

Staff was excellent. Fresh baked cookies and coffee available all day is a nice touch. Breakfast was pretty good as far as hotel "free" breakfasts go. We appreciated the super fresh krispy kreme donuts that were available each morning. Rooms were a bit dated. Old tv. Old style bedspread. We found some fast food wrappers on floor under bed, so cleanliness could have been improved.

The porch area in front is nice and invites conversation between guests which is something I enjoy. The suite we booked was right off the lobby on the first floor and I expected it to be loud due to the location. Since it is a 'shot gun' style suite, the bedroom was the farthest away from the hall, with an additional door, so the only noise was from the upstairs guests. The hotel in general appears to have had a face lift and was in good shape. I wasn't as thrilled with the breakfast. There were not very many fruit choices and the powdered eggs were very grainy on one occaision. The location of the hotel was good, close to everything we wanted to do. The pool area was nice and did not overwhelm you with clorine. Ample towels were supplied and staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Back side of the hotel is next to a wooded area, very quiet.

We had 2 separate visits at the end of May. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking was easy. Location great! Close to highway, busch gardens and downtown.. Breakfast was very good and coffee, tea available 24 hrs. Got a very personal, family friendly feeling during our stay. Not at all "corporate". Will always stay here on future visits.

I took my 3 kids to Williamsburg to see the colonial city and to spend a day at Busch Gardens. County Inn & Suites Williamsburg is right in between, literally 5 minutes to each! Couldn't possibly have been more convenient. The staff was very helpful with information about what to do and how to get there in the surrounding area, with plenty of brochures. Free breakfast in teh morning and coffee/hot chocolate 24 hours in the lobby. Our room was very comfortable, too - esp. the beds. I'd come here again next time for sure!
