Certificate of Excellence
Historic Williamsburg's only downtown lodging. The Fife & Drum Inn is adjacent to the shops and restaurants of Merchants Square and just a short walk from the heart of historic Colonial Williamsburg. William & Mary, the country's second chartered college, is across the street. Our guests consistently tell us we are the perfect cross between a small "boutique" hotel and a bed and breakfast. Inn keepers and owners Sharon and Billy Scruggs were born and raised in Williamsburg and are most adept at helping you to make the most of your visit. Some of the best hotels in Williamsburg (the state) are located with in a block. Convient to most everything you could want in Williamsburg

The hotel is cozy and authentic, every room is different. A simple breakfast is included, and also 24/7 complimentary cookies, chips, lifesavers, tea, hot chocolate and coffee. The hotel is not staffed after 16 pm, but there was no problem. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My son and I visited for a night while looking at W&M. We were very happy with our stay. The location is superb; it is only a block or two from the Wren building and all of the adjacent shops and restaurants. The accommodations were great. All the rooms are on the second/top

Stayed here to visit our daughter at W&M. Location is perfect at the intersection of Colonial Williamsburg and the campus of William & Mary. Perfectly appointed room and furnishings that evoke the colonial period yet with all the necessary modern amenities.

Thank you for your interest in the Fife & Drum Inn. As you may be aware we have the only lodging in downtown Williamsburg yet we are only steps away from the colonial historic area and the College of William & Mary. Most of our rooms have queen beds. It is extraordinarily safe in downtown Williamsburg. You may check rates and availability by visiting our web site directly or feel free to call me toll free at 888-838-1783. Billy

"Cottage is near a small busy street. Bedroom too bright at night from the street lights, but the cottage is very comfortable otherwise."
"All rooms are special!"
"Every room is unique, so be sure to discuss your needs/desires with the Inn owners."
"Rooms are quiet even during the outdoor showing of a movie. There are at least 2 rooms that can sleep 3 people. Nice furnishings, bathrooms."
"The Conservancy is what you want!"
