Although frequent visitors to Colonial Williamsburg, this was our first stay at the Governors Inn and we found both good and bad. The bad: bedding quality was not great and the parking lot could use better lighting. Breakfast was standard free continental breakfast food BUT the friendly staff were more than diligent about refilling items. Still the location is the best part of staying here; being only a short walk from the historic area (instead of using the buses) more than overcomes any problems! And in spite of the dark parking area., we never felt unsafe.

Stayed at the Governor' Inn & it fit exactly what I needed. The location is ideal at just 3 blocks off the Main Street in Colonial Williamsburg. The room/beds/bathroom were clean & there was a fridge in the room. Was the Governors Inn a luxurious place to stay? No, it wasn't. But if you are going to be spending the vast majority of your day exploring Williamsburg and are just looking for a clean, inexpensive place to keep some clothes, shower and sleep... this place fills that criteria perfectly. They even offer a free continental breakfast set up in the lobby each morning. The women working the desk was also super friendly and very helpful.

The location is great and for the price the room was clean although in much need of a facelift. New bathrooms, carpets and furniture would do a world of difference. I have stayed at the Woodlands next to the visitors center and this is not even close. Again, we only paid $70 a night and only stayed one night. The breakfast room was very new, clean and served many options both cold and hot cereals, bagels, toast,eggs, waffles fruit and yogurt all included with the room. If you are looking to stay on property for little money and are not looking for upscale then this is fine.

I was pleasantly surprised by our experience at the Governor's Inn. It is not fancy--Just simple rooms with small bathrooms that open to outdoor hallways. The room, however, was clean. The mattresses were new and very comfortable. The cleaning staff did a very nice job everyday with the room and the reception staff was friendly and helpful. We spent most of the time exploring Williamsburg so our time in the room was just changing and sleeping. The swimming pool is very large and was nicely maintained. Everything is basic and a bit older, but it is a clean, economical hotel that allowed us to visit two extra nights because of the great price and tickets included. The walk to Colonial Williamsburg was just a few blocks, easily done by my kids who are 8 and 10.

Effective 9/1/2012. The "FREE" park passes will cost you $29. per person and no amount of needling will get them to relent, even if you booked your room(s) during the promotion. Add $116 to the tab for a family of four. I would have rather spent it having dinner.
