Stayed here for the night with my son for his bday. Took advantage of a Groupon. The room was clean and the staff were helpful. It was as quiet as any typical hotel would be. Standard continental breakfast. Nice pool and hot tub (although the jets weren't working). No complaints, close to the outlets.

It's been a few years since we stayed at this location. There appears to have been come improvements. The rooms were nicely maintained. The staff was friendly. The free breakfast was generally fine and varied. We only experienced one time when the breakfast area had too many people, but otherwise the traffic there was fine. The location is terrific, the...

Grout between the tiles was very discolored, mold? Beds were extremely comfortable. Staff was great. Pool was overly chlorinated. Close to shopping, Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Got hotel room as package with Busch Gardens.

Front Desk Staff were very pleasant, caring, and eager to please us. I mentioned very loud neighbors and without asking she moved us to a room with no neighbors. Room #2 was clean and quiet, needed Desk Staff attention (plug in heater that housekeeping unplugged when vacuuming) but then was cozy warm and we got good rest. Bathroom was small...

This hotel is within 3 minutes of Colonial Williamsburg's Visitor Center. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good, but the breakfast area was designed poorly and way too small. The staff was friendly for our entire stay. We will definitely be back.

It's a great location in Williamsburg. It's close to all the destinations you would like to visit. You're greeted with a smile and a staff that is nothing less than an A plus. If you're looking for a place to take care of you and enjoy your stay in Williamsburg this is the place

This hotel is in nice shape and, for the price, it was excellent. We were greeted warmly at reception and our room was very clean. The hotel was very full so breakfast was busy but both days we were able to find a place to sit. Breakfast option were typical but nothing fantastic. Again, given the price, this is an...

We booked this hotel as a package deal with room, tickets to Colonial Williamsburg and a $50 gift card to use there. We are Best Western loyalty members as well. The lobby of the hotel has been renovated to look more modern but it didn't carry over to the rooms. When we walked into our room it was like a...

We went to the hotel pretty late after the Christmas Town closed in Busch Gardens. Easy check-in, we got rooms right in front of the elevators. I was worried that the elevator noise is going to keep us up the whole night, but I was wrong. We got two double beds in the room, which is pretty uncommon (most hotels...
