“Loved Our Stay Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Recently renovated, the Holiday Inn Express was clean, reasonable and easily accessible to all local attractions. Our suite on the 4th floor was quiet and spacious. Doris, our housekeeper took extra special care of us. The breakfasts were filling but a not great. That was a minor drawback to an excellent experience. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Choose a suite on the 4th floor, facing the vacant lot (even numbered rooms) for a quiet night's...

I/We normally stay at Marriott Properties But since this was Memorial Day weekend It was a Last Minute trip and everything had Booked up quickly. If you are looking to stay not as close to Colonial Side this is a Good Value Hotel. when the Hotel is Packed expect Parking to be Tight. The Breakfast was better than expected when you travel with little Children. And you are really Close to all the restaurants.

The building appearance, cleanliness, comfort, and professional staff are at the top of the game here.
The price here was a little higher than I like to pay, but “getting what you pay for” shined at this location.
This place is close to Williamsburg attractions, and is also a good base to access Jamestown and Yorktown.
Our questions about area activities were answered with directions, maps, and phone calls made to get additional info for us... wow!
The place was invaded by 3-4 busloads of teens on trips, and that was a little inconvenient as they didn’t seem to have fully developed their courtesy skills, but the staff handled the heavy load well, especially during the breakfast invasion.

Be warned that the beautiful glazed ceramic tile around the pool, and the outside pool area makes for very slippery and dangerous conditions when wet.

I have been a travel agent since 1987. There are certain hotels that we get to know and love in different cities based upon our clients experiences there. This is a property that we will never hesitate to recommend as long as their current standards are maintained, and they seem to have been for quite some time. We love to sell this hotel because our clients love it. Just recently, on May 12, 2013, we had a group of college students with chaperones traveling by bus on a music tour in the Virginia area. They stayed at this Holiday Inn Express and couldn't say enough good things about it, including friendly and professional service, fast check in and out, clean and comfortable rooms and a great breakfast. They also loved the location as it was walking distance to restaurants and a movie theatre and has free bus parking available. We will keep putting clients here... it is good for our business when we have happy travelers!

The place was really nice. The rooms were very clean, the staff were professional and friendly, the room amenities were top of the line. The food that they cooked us for breakfast was very good and the waiters were very attentive. I am very glad our trip planner for the school chose this hotel.

My latest visit to Williamsburg was not pleasure but a visit to a sick friend in the local hospital.
When I found out my schedule would leave me with several hours between the posted checkout time of noon and my return Amtrak, I called the front desk and requested a late departure of 4pm and associated charge.She said it is 50% of the daily rate and I agreed.
Then she asked why I needed the late checkout.When I gave her the reason she put me on hold then came back and said there would be no charge.Now that makes me a greater fan of Holiday Inn's than I have been already. Well done!

I have not been disappointed with the Holiday Inn group of hotels. This one is at the top and would highly recommend it. Rough start when at the reception desk we found out that the central reservation desk lost (cancelled) part of our reservation. The staff was friendly, kind and very helpful. Even with the hotel being full they were able to fulfill our reservation to the best of their ability. The rooms were spotless, as were the linens and towels. Their free breakfast was as most typical hotel free breakfasts are, but when on the run it was good to have a hot breakfast. I only wish they would get better coffee. Over all I would stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the first floor, the pool is there and close to the room and you could hear the...
