Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I stayed her for five nights and had a perfectly lovely stay. We were visiting relatives who live nearby, so this location was ideal. Our room was large and the bathroom was amazing. The walk-in shower was perfect for my husband and I as we cannot easily climb in and out of tub showers. The staff were friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was swift. The complimentary breakfast was terrific. The rooms were sparkling clean, the hotel quiet with plenty of free parking. We will return!

The hotel was so clean and the front desk service was spectacular. We really enjoyed having breakfast at the hotel. The gentleman serving breakfast had great energy and was so welcoming. He chatted with the patrons and made sure they had a great breakfast experience. We would give 5 stars but the handicap lift for the pool did not work. However, the staff worked diligently to try and fix it.

We had a amazing stay. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager, Ceazar Reina went out of his way to accommodate our needs. It was helpful to have a resturant on site. The indoor pool and hot tube was lots fun and relaxing after a long day. We will stay here again.

This holiday Inn couldn’t be better! Great location for site seeing whether it be Williamsburg, Jamestown,Yorktown and the family favorite Water Country. Clean with lovely staff. I especially want to give a shout out to the wonderfully pleasant and efficient Dejean! He was helping during the breakfast buffet! Such a positive young man. Willing to accommodate all his guests.

What a wonderful time my mom and had at this hotel from the minute we walked through the door. Jennifer met us at the front desk and she had such a vibrant personality, all smiles and a willingness to help. Very clean hotel, beds were amazing to sleep in, and breakfast was yummy with lots to choose from. Jennifer greeted us every time she saw us with a smile and making sure our needs were met. We didn't meet one employee that didn't greet us with a hello. Great job, HIE Busch Gardens area. We hated to leave.

Check in was very quick and easy. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Lobby was clean. Room bigger than expected, very clean. Haven’t really tried the complementary breakfast, but the smell of bacon every morning in the lobby is incredible. The location is perfect if you’re visiting colonial Williamsburg. It’s a very short distance down the road.
