“Very Nice but terrible Eggs!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I stayed here for two days over Christmas. This hotel is labeled as "historic district." That is very accurate, but it was not where I expected. While it is only a 3 minute drive to the historic Williamsburg visitor's center, it otherwise was in the middle of nowhere. I had hoped it would be on the main road leading past William and Mary and going out of town toward the Williamsburg pottery factory (the road with all the hotels and restaurants). Rather, it is virtually all by itself, about a 5-7 minute drive from that road. Thus, for dinner, there were only two nearby restaurants; otherwise, one has to drive 5-10 minutes to find one.

The hotel itself is just like all Hampton Inns: large rooms, clean, excellent in all respects. The only fault is comprised of the scrambled eggs. They must be fake. Their curds are all uniform size and shape (imagine marbles). The taste is absolutely awful. The saving grace at breakfast (the first day) was the gravy (meant for the biscuits - and was tasty) that I could pour over them to mask the terrible taste. This is the second hotel in America (the other was not Hampton) where I've had these identical eggs. Unfortunately, the second morning there was no gravy to mask the taste. The good news is that the coffee and glazed donuts were excellent! There were very few people staying there, so by 9:00 a.m. there was still plenty of breakfast left.

I'd stay there again (but bring plenty of spices to "doctor" the eggs!!)

This was our second stay at this Hampton and I will most likely stay there again. Our room this time had a heater and air conditioning unit that clanked and banged through our first night. Second night we gave it a miss. We skip breakfast at hotels like this as they are all pretty much the same: rubbery eggs and yogurt. This Hampton is in a great location and is less expensive than those on the Williamsburg strip so definitely worth a try.

Room Tip: We always take the king size non smoking suites.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel last month and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Williamsburg area. We stayed in one of the 2 Queen Studio suites and not only was the room spotless, but the extra space made us feel right at home. The Front Desk staff was very friendly and gave great advice on places to eat out. Also I stay at Hampton's often, and was extremely impressed at the courtesy and attentiveness of the breakfast staff. They do as good a job as any Hampton I've ever been at. Overall it was a great value and I would certainly stay there again next time I am in Williamsburg.

This was everything I expect from a Hampton Inn but we had some problems...first it was raining when we arrived and the management allowed people to park in front of the door which made us park and carry our luggage through the rain...second if you did not get to breakfast before 8:00 AM there was nothing left to eat and it did not seem like any more food was served...third the management team seemed overwhelmed and was unresponsive to any special requests...basically the problem was the management team.

I would say our stay here was pretty nice and typical of the Hampton experience. We were quite comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. They offered a warm breakfast which is nice when you are traveling. Our rooms were good, however, the heating unit was quite strange as the room would really heat up once you set it at a certain temp, and then the cold air would kick in to cool it off! We heard other visitors talking about this also. Also had some problems with the shower and getting it to stay at the right temp. The hotel is a good value though for the price.

We stayed for one night in oct 2012 and found this hotel to be clean, friendly and very good value for our $$. Nice breakfast, decent meal in the restaurant. Friendly staff and big rooms. We had a room towards the courtyard which was very quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room faceing the courtyard

Nothing to complain about here. Room a good size and clean. Bed comfy and shower hot. Breakfast included a bonus. 5 minutes by car to historic district. Good attentive staff with nothing a bother. Good place to stay whoever you are.
