The hotel is convenient to the Visitor Center, shuttle service and shops/restaurants outside the Colonial area. Ample parking (at no charge), and parking pass allowed us to park at other CW lots in the Colonial area at no charge. The hotel staff is awesome--one person in our party received a birthday delivery and front desk staff called us when it arrived, when we returned to the hotel a few hours later we found it was edible arrangement and staff kept it refrigerated until we returned. Just a little thing that made a big impression on our stay. Thank you!
The hotel was clean. The staff was friendly. The continental breakfast was very good. While we didn’t use the pool, many families were enjoying it during our stay. It is right by the shuttle and also has a beautiful trail (about 1/2 mile) right to the Governor’s Palace in ColonIal Williamsburg. We will definitely stay here again if we come back.
Our stay at the Woodlands Hotel was a very nice experience. The staff was very helpful with great local dinner recommendations. Loved that it was so close to Colonial Williamsburg and didn't have to commute from the hotel to the site.
I went to W& M family weekend to see my son . I stayed here because of the shuttle to and from CW. It's good for families. A bit dated in decor, bathroom cleanliness wasn't that great. Felt it was overpriced for quality of room and breakfast. However, family amenities, shuttle and grounds are what make this place a fine choice.
This was our first trip to Colonial Williamsburg & the East Coast. We almost stayed somewhere else due to some of the negative comments. We were so glad that we stayed here, the staff was great, the room was great & the location was outstanding! This property is a solid 3-star hotel with many nice conveniences you will not get somewhere else. You are right next door to the Visitor Center, the tram picks you up at takes you to Colonial Williamsburg. The staff were so nice & the breakfast room & set-up avoided all of the normal morning congestion. There was a good selection of breakfast items. We did not have time to enjoy the grounds because we were away from the hotel most of the day. I would not hesitate to recommend this property & hope to return someday for another great visit to the gem that is Colonial Williamsburg.…
There are MANY hotels to choose from in the Williamsburg area, but I am very happy I came upon the Williamsburg Woodlands. It is away from all those other hotels and motels, but next to th Visitors Center. You can easily walk a lovely path to Colonial Williamsburg, which we did every morning for exercise, while moving my daughter in to William and Mary (there are also shuttle buses). The rooms are clean and attractive (some are even dog friendly). The main lobby and breakfast area have a "lodge:" feel that I like and the area inside the U shaped building is attractively planted, with benches and sculptures. There's plenty of parking. The employees are friendly and professional, and seem happy (not so in every hotel!) The breakfast was honestly the best "free Hotel Breakfast" I have had in years. We still had to try several of the 1000 pancake houses I Williamsburg, but would have been completely happy with the Woodlands breakfast. The packages with free Colonial Williamsburg tickets are a big plus! I liked it so much I have made it my "official hotel" while my daughter is at William and Mary. I've already been there twice this month, and will; be back.…
Clean hotel! Friendly staff! Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit options! Lots of great extras: pool, splash pad, video games, air hickey, and mini golf! Convenient location a pleasant walk to Williamsburg or a quick bus ride.
Total experience was wonderful- staff, amenities, atmosphere. Will always stay here in future visits to Williamsburg . Highly recommend to anyone looking for a truly relaxing vacation. Can’t say enough about the great customer service
We made reservations last minute due to the hotel we were staying at having not very good recent reviews (thanks trip advisor!) and this was actually cheaper, included tickets to Colonial Williamsburg and a great breakfast. The location was right next to the visitor center for Colonial Williamsburg which we just walked to and took shuttle. Checking in the front desk clerk, Coffee, was amazing. Gave us tips on Colonial Williamsburg and made me feel like I was a very valued guest. We didn't get to do much exploring of the property but hope to come back and check out the pool, etc. The room was a standard room - beds were a bit hard but everything was clean and that is most important to me. I've already booked again for December for our holiday visit.
Enjoying a vacation at colonial Williamsburg is enhanced by The Woodlands hotel. The grounds and staff are pleasantly welcoming. The breakfast is a true meal with lots of options and the coffee is very tasty. The location is a walkable distance into colonial Williamsburg along a trail that takes one back into the 1800's. Woodlands has bus service for convenience, as well as tired feet. Our only caveat was the room fridge froze our beverages which we easily dealt with by using our cooler.
