The decor, the breakfast foods, the linens, the little extra touches (cookies, coffee, tea ready all day/night), the location and its proximity to Colonial Williamsburg, the free parking, the wifi, all was terrific. I have stayed in the Colonial Houses in Williamsburg and would find the stay comparable except that the delicious breakfasts at Fife and Drum would have me... More

Looking for alternative to a Colonial Williamsburg property? This it it. Clean, easy, and walkable to all the park has to offer. We are impressed with their amenities and personal attention. They know all you need to make a great day in the park and great diner suggestions too.

This lovely little inn is tucked away behind Merchant's Square and accessible to all of Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed, and breakfasts are fresh and suitable for everyone. Off street parking is available, and for the two days we stayed there, we didn't use our car once!

My sister and I booked 2 nights at the Fife & Drum Inn primarily at the request of a friend. He had seen it from the outside and on-line, but wanted someone he knew to actually stay at the Inn and give him first-hand knowledge of the experience. It turned out to be an excellent decision! We stayed in the... More

This is the ideal B&B in Historic Williamsburg. It's right in the town, walking distance to everything AND includes convenient parking. The room was extremely comfortable with a perfect balance of colonial flair and modern convenience. Breakfasts were delicious with lots of fruit to also be very healthy. Staff could not be friendlier or more knowledgeable. Price was reasonable. We... More

we stayed here with our teenaged son and found the whole experience delightful. The innkeepers were very helpful with planning our day and also saving on the entrance fees that added to our visit to Williamsburg and saved us a lot of time.

Friends and I spent the weekend in Williamsburg, Virginia to celebrate a birthday. We stayed at the Fife and Drum. What a wonderful place to stay. Once we parked the car, we could walk to Colonial Williamsburg, the Art Museum, restaurants, and shopping. The rooms at the hotel were charming and very comfortable. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious. Billy... More

The location is perfect to access the heritage area of Williamsburg and only a five minute walk from the train station which is how I travelled there. Not only that but the rooms are full of character, very clean and the bed very comfortable. Even a stool is provided to climb into the bed. It was a pleasant surprise to... More

The Fife and Drum was a very pleasant respite from a whirlwind of college campus visitations. It is located directly across the street from William and Mary. We had a late check-in and Williamsburg is so safe that the hotel and room "keys" are left for you (in a place that the owners will tell you - I don't want... More
