Beware if them trying to increase room rates on a confirmed reservation with absolutely no valid explanation. Blaming you and being extremely rude and unhelpful. Total lack of customer service and professionalism.

Hotel's Favorite
The Griffin provides the ideal location within the colonial area. It is just across the street from the King's Arms Tavern and the rest of the colonial area. The rooms are large and overall the setting is very serene. Close to the tennis courts and the Williamsburg Inn.

LARGE room!! Beautiful scenery. Private from the other areas of Colonial Williamsburg but walking distance from all the action. There aren’t any amenities attached to this hotel which is the one drawback.

Overall we had a wonderful experience at the Griffin Inn. Granted the rooms are a bit dated, and need some minor repairs, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are HUGE and so comfortable! The room truly added to the ambiance of romance for my husband and I. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed walking the trail around the room, especially at night!

We stayed two nights here. It was off season, very quiet, and the fall colors were beautiful! The grounds were well kept, faculties clean, staff courteous and helpful. Food good and reasonably priced. The indoor pool was warm and an had unusual nice, long lap lane. However, it could use better ventilation and shower facilities. Other recent reviews commented on the place needing updating. I agree with some of the reviewers that the décor is a bit dated and shows some wear, but nothing that distracted from our enjoyment. The area is very walkable for pleasant outside exercise and the Old Williamsburg town a big bonus! My only complaint was the noisy leaf blowers (yeah, it was fall!). I would highly recommend a late Oct, early Nov stay here.

I was at Williamsburg to glean information and ambiance for the historical novel I am writing. The Griffin Hotel offered me great service and advice. The convenience was a plus as I use a rollator. My only real complaint is the lack of a microwave in the room because I like to eat lightly when I travel. At the end of my stay, I was loathe to leave.

We’ve stayed at The Lodge many times and have been pleased. The Griffin was quite the opposite. I’d compare the room to a 2 star hotel. Very old, dirty and run down. Do not recommend, go to The Lodge for a little more money.

Location, ease of parking, ease of checkin, pass to historic buildings and friendly staff made it a wonderful getaway venture away from home. I live in Chesapeake VA so it’s less than an hour drive to Williamsburg. My only disappointment was many of my favorite restaurants were closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

We loved the Griffin Hotel. Our room was spacious and beautiful. The hotel staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We met an amazing bar tender who mixed up a new and very tasty cocktail and even wrote down the recipe! I would definitely recommend the Griffin Hotel!

We recently stayed at the Griffin Hotel in a King size room. I'll start with the "bad". The room could use some refurbishment for sure, the sheer drapes were beyond repair. They were badly shredded. We had several canisters of anti-mold and humidity remedies in the room. Aside from those issues, the room was great. We couldn't believe how huge it was. In a very unofficial way I measured it and found that the main area was about 22' by 30'. There is a king bed, pull out sofa, 2 large chairs, a fireplace, a desk, several tables and of course a tv. Then there is the dressing area. There is a sink, a coffee area, fridge, safe, large closet and of course a bathroom. The bathroom has another sink area, a separate room for the toilet, a walk in shower and then a tub/shower combo. All in all more than enough space for the 2 of us. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. A family of 4 or more could fit in here without issue. We were within walking distance of everything. It was quite a walk to the pool and the signage is horrible. We had to ask several people but we finally found it. Once there we were very happy. I'd stay here again for sure. We did not require housekeeping at all since we were only there 4 days. We brought our own coffee but I presume that they'd refill the k cups if asked.
