Reviewed September 18, 2013

This hotel had all the niceties I've come to expect from a BW Plus and then some. Typical great staff, a breakfast Denny's should copy and a location close to everything. Then... I actually did a double take when I walked into my room and discovered brick walls and a wood trimmed ceiling. A great touch especially for the relatively low cost of the room. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: No smoking building, behind the main building, is just that.

Dear OpaSteve,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're thrilled to have exceeded what you've come to expect from a Best Western Plus. I'm glad you enjoyed the amenities we have to offer and our one-of-a-kind guest rooms. Guests seem to love the colonial-style ambiance that the exposed brick and wood trim provides. It's good to know that you're no exception. Hopefully, it is enough to bring you back to stay with us on your next visit to Richmond. Thanks again for your review!

We went to the Nascar Race. We used this hotel last year when we came and the rooms were okay. But this year was a much better experience. The room was newly renovated! Really enjoyed the new tv and new decor. The bathroom was newly renovated too.

Price is right! The bed is the one of the best among all hotels I have stayed, because I like firm bed. Breakfast included was good. It saved us a lot of time in the morning, we had a lot of places to visit in Richmond afterwards. Quiet and nice rooms, no crazy party kids :)

Twenty years ago neighbors told my wife and me about their Saturday night get away's to Governor's Inn. We lived less than ten miles away back then. They raved about the place.

Now we are retired in Florida and found ourselves back in Midlothian, VA for a visit. We finally stayed at Governor's Inn. Our former neighbors were right. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated, well appointed with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, crown molding and granite counter tops, and was very clean, comfortable and quiet. One whole wall was made of rough stone. The furniture and art work are above average.

The complementary breakfast was served in what appeared to be an upscale dining room. We chose from eggs and sausage, waffles, fruit, cold cereals, bagel and breads, pastries, and cold cereals. Of course there were juices, milk and coffee. The lobby was decorated with carved real wood panels, heavy doors and brick walls are everywhere, and the ceilings are nicely trimmed.

There is a pool on the property, a bar and a restaurant. The exterior architecture has a strong European influence.

One big surprise is that even this many years later the whole place is as fresh and well maintained as when we first heard about it. Another surprise is that you may drive by it and not even know it is there. There is a Best Western sign on Midlothian Turnpike, Virginia Route 60, that leads you back behind a small village facade filled with offices and shops. What makes you miss this hidden gem is a car wash fronting on the main road that is a distraction to the old brick structures that are attractive and well maintained.

It is worth your efforts to find Governor's Inn. I am so glad I finally had an opportunity to enjoy a unique first class property for the price of other mid-class chain hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in Building B where the pool is. The bar and resturant are in Building A.

We stayed one night here and really liked the hotel. Compared to other hotels in the area, the rates were VERY reasonable. The room was spacious and clean. Even though I had mapquest directions, it was hard for me to find because the sign was smaller than I expected. The breakfast was very good and ample. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The bathroom was a bit dated and the faucet had way to much pressure (funny, because the usual complaint is just the opposite)....otherwise, I would have given this Best Western a 5. I will definitely come back should I need a place to stay in Richmond.
