I am on the road over 100 nights a year for business. I want a clean comfortable room close to my business accounts. That would be Best Western Governor's Inn when I'm in Richmond, VA. Classy place with character, gym, pool, and great breakfast too. What else could you want? Did I mention outstanding service? They have that as well.

Made a trip to house search due to job relocation. Hotel is conveniently located, clean, and had some charm in the second building. Breakfast was include was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend if looking for something inexpensive but nice.

Our two night stay was very good. We arrived very late at night, but a front desk person was there to great us in a warm and friendly way, which is the attitude of every staff encounter we had.

Great hotel about 15 minutes from the track. Friendly staff. Rooms are great value for the money, they do have room airconditioners vs central air. It is an older hotel but well maintained. We were in the original building this time. They do have a free breakfast in the mornings.

Had to stay here during home construction from trees falling on my house, so stayed 49 days. This hotel has alot of stone and brick work that make it extremely pretty.

Not all rooms have elevator access. The desk associate quickly offered us a room on the first floor of the main building when I told her we needed access to a room that didn't have stairs. The room was great and you could not hear much exterior noise which made for a restful nights sleep.

This hotel was available on race weekend and rated well. It's an older hotel but the rooms are immaculate and the staff was extremely friendly. My only gripe was there was no blackout curtains, just the sheer drapes. Not a deal breaker unless you want to sleep in. The breakfast was hearty and bottomless. Eggs, sausage links, sausage gravy and... More

The hotel exterior is like no other Best Western, very impressed with the detailed exterior. Rooms were clean and had detailed wood work. Staff was very helpful, and rooms were clean and functioned like they should.
