While the Best Western isn't the best hotel with everything in it, it was still an adequate Hotel. We booked this hotel as a last-minute getaway and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and spacious and while I saw several complaints about breakfast, we have none and there was even a big group here. We had no... More

Upon arrival, my family and I were checked in promptly. The front desk staff was friendly enough. Many updates have been done to the lobby and breakfast room, but the rest of the hotel has not been updated for quite some time - there is a definite multiple personality thing going on with the decor being extreme modern in front...

The room was not what we expected. The staff was too relax and almost unprofessional. The room was not what we expected and looked as if it was rushed. The couch smelled horrible, the desk chair was stain and nasty, and there was a roach that crawled into the bathroom as we were heading down to breakfast. We were unable... More

We have stayed at this hotel at least 6 times over the past 2 years and find it very clean. The employees are very friendly. The breakfast is very good with a nice variety of food. We will continue to use this hotel.

My wife booked this room through Expedia. The hotel site did not designate smoking vs non-smoking. Upon check on the clerk at the front desk offered to check for another room but alas nothing non-smoking was available. This is a sneaky way for the hotel to sell its very stinky smoking rooms to unsuspecting tourists. The room was ok. It... More

While we have stayed in far worse places, this BW was disappointing. I'll start by saying the staff was great and the location is spot on. The pool is large and warm, and the three video/pinball games were a nice touch. For the price ($109), however, I think you could get a much better experience from one of the many... More

This hotel has a lot going for it, from the free breakfast to the indoor pool (great when it's ridiculously hot outside like it was when we were there) and a small gym. The rooms and the hotel are clean, but for the most part, this could be any mid-range hotel. I think what sets this property apart is the... More

We were here as a couple for five nights. Reservation requests were ignored even though we booked weeks in advance and had paper work to prove it. It took seeing three rooms before they gave us what we asked for. The breakfast layout and service was inadequate for the number of guests in the hotel. We are Best Western Gold... More

My family and I planned a vacation to Williamsburg VA. We were on a budget and this hotel and the package for Busch Gardens and Water Country USA fit our pockets. It is not a bad hotel. I did not see bed bugs, however something in the room bit me ion several spots on my neck area. It may have... More
