There is absolutely nothing negative to say...it was a great stay with my family. From the location of the hotel to the rooms and even the breakfast...all was excellent! I would definitely recommend this hotel!!

Hotel was great. Had a king suite which was very clean with an extremely comfortable bed. Hotel close enough to all attractions. No complaints and will definitely stay there again.

Chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. The hotel itself if a attractive hotel on the inside and out. Nice rooms (very clean), good internet service, comfy beds. The reason for the 2 star rating is due to a situation with the temperature of water in our shower. One daughter barely had lukewarm water while taking a shower around 7:30pm, while another daughter had such scalding hot water (was not turned on high) about 45 minutes later when took her shower and had to step out. A few minutes later it was barely lukewarm. Same when my husband took a shower about an hour later. You could turn the water to HOT and it was chilly. My husband called the front desk and they offered to switch use to the one open room they had available but my daughter and myself were already in bed and were not moving at that late hour. In the morning when I went to take my shower, same issue, barely lukewarm. My husband again called the front desk and went down to get keys to another room that was directly above us. He went to the room, turned on the shower and was hardly lukewarm. We did not change rooms, he returned the keys. He asked other guest at the hotel about their experience with the water while he was at breakfast and 1 guest said it was scalding hot (room directly across from our room) and 2 other guest were lukewarm...so it wasn't just us. I ended up washing my hair in the SINK and taking a very quick, chilly shower. Not the way I like to start my day. We told the staff that we were heading to Busch Gardens and would check the water when we got back.....same issue. Each time we talked to the staff, we felt like an inconvenience to them and not a guest. They said there was no other complaints but at the same time said they were aware of the problem and trying to correct it. ??? Two women came to our room and attempted to adjust the water, it would not get any warmer. The sink was fine, cold water to hot water, as you would expect but not the shower. One woman that was attempting to adjust the water asked me "this water isn't warm enough for you?".......the other woman with her agreed that it was not warm enough. At that point they were able to move us to the room directly next store and they personally checked the water temp before bringing us over to check for ourselves. It was as you would expect the water to be, cold to hot. Because the room was the room next door, it wasn't too much of a convenience to move. Showers were great that night and the next morning. Would not stay at this location again just because we felt the staff believed we were a hinderance to their day. I was disappointed upon check-out that they did not acknowledge the inconvenience to us at all.

We just returned from a three night stay at the Hampton Inn Williamsburg-Central:

PROS:
-Very close to the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area. Not as close to Busch Gardens (15 minute drive) but still a good location.
-Hotel was very clean
-Large breakfast area
-Friendly staff
-Free breakfast with lots of options (eggs, pastries, waffles, cereals)
-Room was very large and bed was comfortable
-A personal plus for me: A 7-Eleven is within walking distance. I love Slurpees and we don't have 7-Eleven where we live so this was a bonus for us!

CONS:
-The main issue for us was the room air conditioner. It was extremely loud. This was noted in a previous review and I can confirm it. We are used to sleeping with a white noise machine but the A/C unit was so loud we could barely hear each other talk when it was running and I had to turn the closed captioning on or else have the TV volume turned up incredibly loud.
-Elevators are very slow
-Free breakfast was good but was hit or miss. One day it was great, the next not so much. Not sure if this was a staff issue or a hotel crowd issue.
-Room was nice but had some maintenance issues (shower sliding doors were not attached at the bottom, toilet seat was coming off, shower floor pain was stained)

All in all the stay was average but the loud A/C will keep us from staying here again as it affected our sleep quality.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's super convenient to Busch Gardens and lots of restaurants. Our room was exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable. The indoor pool and hot tub was very nice with no overwhelming chlorine smell as is the case with some indoor pools. Staff was exceedingly friendly. My only complaint was the breakfast area and its really poor set up. The toaster was a household model with only two slots that took forever to toast and it was placed right next to the do-it-yourself waffle iron. The created lots of crowding in one area. I know it's free, but doesn't anyone think about think about making the breakfast set up a bit more reasonable? Overall, though, a wonderful option for a few nights in Williamsburg!

Great hotel. New, clean and affordable. Good free breakfast which is pretty much a standard we have found with Hampton Inns. Book early though because we are finding it hard to get a King suite in this hotel if you wait til the last minute. Guess we are not the only ones that have noticed the positive reviews they are getting. We have stayed in three hotels in Williamsburg over the past several months since we bought our season tickets to Busch Gardens and this has been our favorite. Front desk staff are very friendly and they are very accommodating. Extra towels, extra pillows...just ask and they will make sure you are taken care of.
