I originally booked a condo nearby, but cancelled after adding up the cost savings of staying at a Colonial Williamsburg hotel. The room rate was $79 and included a nice breakfast. They gave us a cot for no charge, which was so helpful with 3 children. The biggest cost-savings was on tickets for Colonial Williamsburg. We saved $10 per adult and $5 per child for staying at an official hotel, plus your ticket is good for the length of your stay unlike the 1-day tickets you get for the higher cost if you aren't staying at an official hotel. You can also charge all your purchases in Colonial Williamsburg to your room, which is convenient. Finally, they offer shuttle service to the visitors center and around town, which seems like a nice option though we did not use it. The hotel is older, but our room was well-kept. Housekeeping was efficient; they had the room cleaned before we returned from breakfast. The people at the front desk were very nice and helpful. Ask for a room away from the train if you are a light sleeper. The pool was outdoors, and it was too cold to use but it looked very nice.
