We usually stay at a different hotel in Williamsburg but that hotel had sold out our military discount. I found this hotel at TripAdvisor to be rated #1 in Williamsburg so I called and got a great Government rate. The day prior to checking in, I noticed a charge on my card for almost $100 more than what our stay was going to cost. I called the hotel and they told me that is a credit card hold and it will fall off and it was more than what I would be paying due to any possible incidentals. I have stayed in many hotels in my life and have never had a hotel do this. I have a slight issue with this since the card I used was my checking card and when I made the reservation, nobody told me this would happen. If this were the case I would have used a different card to hold the room and used my checking card to pay for the room! Anyway, at check-in things were quick and ran smoothly. I found nobody to be overly nice or accomodating...just doing their job. The room was very clean and nice. I checked for bed bugs due to all of the stories about recent outbreaks all over the country and found our beds were very clean and looked like new...no bed bugs! The beds were low to the floor but comfortable. Plenty of pillows, towels, and space. The location was great. Right down the street from restaurants and only a 5-7 minute drive to either the Colonial area, the outlets, and many shops. Busch Gardens took us a mere 10 minutes to drive to. We did not eat at the restaurant because kids do not eat free at this Holiday Inn. The Golden Corral and IHOP do honor children eating for free. I would stay at this hotel again and tell anybody going to Williamsburg who want a pet-free hotel to stay there.
