“Memorable family vacation...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

This has been the most amazing and memorable experience my family and I have ever had.... And we still have 2 days to go. This hotel is amazing. The staff is beyond friendly. The room were staying is (523) has ample space for a family of 5. The pool is indoors with a hot tub. Everything is SO CLEAN from the lobby, to the pool, to the restaurant and the rooms. Kids 12 and younger eat free. The kids are already asking to come and stay here again next year... And that was day one......were sill in the middle of our vacation! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. WE WILL BE BACK.

(Did I mention this place is so clean!)

We stayed in a two bedroom suit Aug 2014. It was a wonderful stay! Deidra at front desk made everything nice and smooth and made us feel like at home. Super friendly staff. Clean. Good price. Nice breakfast even though it is not buffet anymore. We love it. Our friend who was first time staying love it too. Will return soon. Hanna family

Room Tip: ask the front desk

Very clean room and bathroom with comfortable bed, microwave, safe, and large in-room television. Friendly staff willing to recommend nearby restaurants. The hotel is right down the road from Colonial Williamsburg, several shopping centers and restaurants.

We stayed here for five nights while exploring Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Busch Gardens. We were able to get a two bedroom suite for savings of about 50% over the regular rate. When I booked a one room suite on line, and option popped up to book a two bedroom suite if available at check in. The cost would be more than the one bedroom suite, but SUBSTANTIALLY lower than if I had booked a two bedroom originally. When we arrived a two bedroom suite was open. The room was SPOTLESS. The kids had their own bedroom, bath, and TV. The pull out sofa bed was very comfy, according to my child that slept there. The hotel staff was very friendly and aware of how to get around Williamsburg. The hotel is very new, so that is great. The only downside (and this is not really a downside) is that breakfast is not included. There is a restaurant and kids eat free, but a breakfast buffet would be a much better use of the space. We ate there one morning for breakfast and the food was fine, but with three kids it was just easier to grab breakfast at Dunkin Donuts or one of the many other restaurants there in Williamsburg. Having a refrigerator in the room made it easy to keep milk, OJ, and yogurt available for a quick bite in the room as soon as you get up in the morning. There was free coffee available 24 hours in the lobby. The laundry service was excellent. We had several days worth of dirty clothes. All we did was bag them up, take them to the front desk in the morning and that evening when we returned from Busch Gardens our clothers were clean and folded, all for about $12.
I would highly recommed this property for anyone visiting Williamsburg. We will stay here again.

We traveled through Williamsburg on our road trip along the east coast and stayed at this resort just for one night. The room was clean and there's a pool so that was a plus with the kids. Having been at the historic town all day in 90 degrees most of the day, the pool was a great treat. I hadn't booked in advance and was able to walk in and get a room which was great considering it was August. Would consider staying there again.

Arrived late with jet lagged young children from international flight and some lousy traffic on I-95. Room was spacious ( we went for a suite which was perfect for a family of 5 with room to spare), clean and sheets were crisp. Bliss. Location very convenient for historic sights and 7 eleven across the street good for supplies for kids. Geoffrey the manager friendly and helpful, good breakfast with friendly service. We had some noisy runners above ( as noted in another review) and a call to reception quietened them down. Only downside was no luggage trolleys available at checkout (a real pain when you're used to a bellman... ) Would recommend a stay here!

The hotel location and overall property was excellent. Stevie Pinkerton, Director of Sales and Catering did an excellent job upon my arrival, and greeted and thanked me as an IHG Rewards member. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the overall stay was quite nice.
