I went here on a group trip. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and nicely decorated the room was. My a/c wasn't working right when I first arrived, but one phone call to the front desk and a staff member was there to fix it within 5 minutes. The staff, overall, were friendly and helpful. It's a great location...

Just stayed here for a Church Conference and found it comfortable and accomodating. One drawback is that it is not within close walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg. I had to take a cab into the main part of the Williamsburg town business district and that was a little bit $$. The beds were very comfortable, the food was great. The...

This hotel is so-so. We booked it last minute under Priceline's name your own price for about $100. They say they've recently renovated; it's obvious most of the money went into the lobby. Speaking of the lobby, it was hard for us to find. Apparently everyone parks behind the hotel, even thought the front has a huge parking lot. Check...

We paid only $65/night on a last minute booking due to issues with another hotel. For what we paid we couldn't be more pleased. This hotel has everything from indoor pool to a bar and even room service. Each room opens up to a balcony or porch, the rooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable. Perhaps the best thing...

Excellent in every way...from staff to accommodations. The breakfast buffet was nothing less than a feast. Colonial Williamsburg, the reason for our visit, was an easy walking distance (and hubby and I are 83 and 69, respectively), a decided plus for us as we did NOT want to fuss with parking.

So happy I did not cancel our reservations after reading some bad reviews of this hotel. What a wonderful weekend this was. We celebrated our 39th Anniversary and upon arrival on Friday we were pleasantly greeted by Wendy Stein who could not be more accommodating.
