We stayed two nights in the Governors Inn at Colonial Williamsburg and feel we made a reasonable decision - but not optimal. The checkin was well done with information about the tickets we had reserved and sufficient direction to use the visitor's center. We had a car so it was not a problem to drive to the main parking lot and catch the shuttle. The comment above about not being optimal relates to the many good quality and reasonably priced hotels in the area from which we could just have easily have driven to this same parking lot - and stayed in a much nicer hotel at no more cost and with many more amenities.
For those not familiar with Colonial Williamsburg, the entire historical area is part of the regular city street system, is open to foot and bicycle traffic, and is available to come and go at no charge. No cars are allowed on the historic site streets during daytime hours but some streets are open to cars at night. You may wander the area, observe and listen in on tour group discussions, but the many exhibits, buildings, performances, and activities each requires a "ticket" (or pass) to enter or participate. With this information and a bicycle you can tailor a trip for the most cost effective trip.More
