Nice little quiet place away from the hotel district in Williamsburg so it was a lot quieter than the stays I had in the district. It's set back a little from a major highway behind a wonderful pancake house and fairly close to the interstate. Showers are clean and you get a fridge/ microwave in the room. There's laundry machines... More

It is a great economy motel geared more for longer stays as you get weekly room service. I don't need someone to pick up after me daily, so it was great. The building changed owners and management about a year before I stayed and they've been renovating the rooms, so newer reviews seem more relevant. The management is wonderful ...... More

I recently stayed in Williamsburg, VA for two weeks. I found the Pineapple Inn & Housing Center to be exactly what I like. When I travel I prefer to stay in hostels and lower budget places and spend my money on the experience. The room I stayed in was a private room even though it had a full size bed... More

I've been staying at the Pineapple Inn for 4 months, and now I'm really thankful that I have chosen it. It is definitely more than just a place to make it through the night. The staff is very friendly, the room and the linen were clean, the pool was fresh and tidy. At the same time it was not hot... More

bed bugs everywhere! the worst thing is that they travel with human and you can treat them as much as you like, they won't die anyway. Pretty much all you can do is: go to the shower wash yourself and run away naked to a better place. ALL the stuff must be treated in high temp dryers before you take... More

PIHC_Manager, Manager at Pineapple Inn and Housing Center, responded to this review

We are very perplexed by this report. Why is it being reported just now, when the guest supposedly stayed in June? We received no complaints from any guest during that time of year related to pest of any kind. We also could not find a record of a guest with that name. Perhaps they have us confused with another property.... More

I was afraid of staying at the Pineapple Inn after reading the review on Trip Advisor, however other friends had stayed at the hotel and said it was fine. So I stayed with my two friends for 3 nights. The hotel is not new, and we knew this, so we were happy to find that they had clean linens, comfortable... More
