This hotel is very close to Colonial Williamsburg and the Visitor Center (just a few minutes drive). The price is very affordable and the room is clean/bed comfortable. Staff was friendly and they had a nice breakfast. Would stay again when I am in Williamsburg.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Glad you found us to be located well to all the attractions. Williamsburg is spread out and we are perfectly located in the middle. Please come back and see us.

Front desk staff are less than helpful. One elevator running, toilet dirty, bathroom too small and had no pillows in our room. I'll pick somewhere else to stay next time. Hotel location was convenient to Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, and food choices. That was about the only positive.

Thank you for sharing your review and we are sorry to hear that we did not exceed your expectations. We are also sorry the staff did not seem helpful. That is not the norm at this hotel which you can see from the many compliments we receive regarding our staff. Thank you again for your review, we do take every single one seriously.

We always get a warm welcome and great service! The front desk staff are very accommodating and friendly. Everyone who works there greets you and asks if they can do anything for you. We feel like we are staying with friends! The amenities are great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to all the historic sites.

This Best Western Plus is convenient for vacationing in the Williamsburg area. Rooms are large with great amenities. Several choices of restaurants are within walking distance. My traveling companions enjoyed the pool and spa. Staff were friendly and responsive.

Our stay at this hotel was was very pleasant and convenient for us. The only thing we did not like were the pillows on the bed. It would also be more convenient if there were more plugins with easier access.

The hotel was very nice. The breakfast was good and plentiful and the room was clean with nice amenities. Our only complaint was that there were not enough power outlets and we had to unplug one of the lamps to be able to charge phones, laptops, and ipad. The indoor pool was clean and well-maintained. The location was convenient to everything that we needed.
