“Just like home...only better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Upon entering the Williamsburg Sampler B&B we felt right at home only better! The Inn is beautifully decorated from top to bottom with antiques appropriate to the location. Our room was spacious, clean and beautiful. The bed was so comfortable and the bath was sparkling clean and large. Our breakfast each day was well prepared and delicious. We have been to Williamsburg several times but enjoyed visiting with Ike, the Innkeeper and learning about all the new things Williamsburg has to offer.

We will return hopefully in the near future.

Our second stay at this B & B. House is nicely done with many interemting items of furnishing. Bed was very comfortable. TV in room was appreciated. Very friendly company at breakfast. Both Ike and Lisbeth very warm and affiable. Great coffee machine. Will return.

Ike is a wonderfully warm and gracious host. Don't miss breakfast at 8:30 -- it's your chance to spend a pleasant meal with other travelers, and sets a relaxing, familial tone to your stay. Housekeeper Lisbeth is also warm and gracious (and prepares an outstanding breakfast!) The house is filled with antiques and has several rooms to retreat into and read, listen to music, or socialize. From a visitor perspective, staying here added a social dimension to our trip that we did not expect but made the trip so much more memorable. I highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The Lord Nelson room has a king-sized bed and is perfect for visitors like us, who were in Williamsb...

We stayed two nights at the Sampler while visiting Colonial Williamsburg with another couple. Ike and his housekeeper were excellent hosts, very friendly, great conversation. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious, with many very well-prepared options, such as freshly-baked cranberry muffins. We had the King William suite with the sitting room and the balcony we shared with our friends' suite, which was a great place to share a bottle of wine after the day's activities. The King William was beautifully decorated, very clean and well-maintained. It's a very good value. We will stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: The suites are a very good value.

My wife & I stayed for 3 nights. Charming B&B. Ike was a gracious & friendly host, & an eclectic collector of various art forms. Great breakfasts & terrific coffee machine. Good value. The one evening when we wanted to watch TV we went down to the "Pool Room" & watched our shows on the big screen TV (not HD). Very clean. The bathroom could have used more towel racks for both bath & hand towels, & why is it hotels & B&Bs don't put two suitcase stands in every room? Our last night there, we could hears owls hooting nearby (irrelevant, I suppose, but interesting). We were quite prepared to reuse our towels, but they were replaced anyway.

Having never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast, my husband and I really didn't know what to expect. What a treat! The Williamsburg Sampler is a delightful place to stay. The colonial theme can be found in every room. You are surrounded by a "homey" feel the minute you enter. The breakfast is delicious and the menu changes every morning. The coffee/espresso machine is a gift for any coffee lover. The bedroom accommodations were perfect, as well. We have stayed in numerous hotel/motels in the Williamsburg area. We can say with certainty the next time we visit we will be staying at the Williamsburg Sampler.

GREAT LOCATION....
We stayed after the "Surprises Galore" review folks and enjoyed 5 nights at the B & B. We appreciated the wonderful kingsize beds as we rarely get them in a B & B. (Husband is 6'6"). The mattresses were perfect for a good night's sleep. We frequently have no TV's at B & B's and didn't care if the TV was new or not. We were able to watch programs if we wished. Over the past 20 years we have stayed at B & B's with no host or owner and it's not been a problem. We met our host the next morning who was very accommodating. He told wonderful stories, (all true), each morning and the guests seemed quite delighted to listen and respond. Our breakfasts were delicious and the housekeeper/cook is bilingual. There is no problem of understanding. Since this is the host's actual home, we were delighted that he showed us the main floor as well as the basement. There are wonderful antiques in every room. If you so desired, you could watch the new TV on the mammoth screen downstairs or play pool. Ike was helpful in recommending local restaurants too. On the last night, he even printed up our boarding passes for us. Oh yes, the fan in the sitting room does work, the switch is on the wall!
