For the price (base rate at/under $100/night), you really won't find a better option in Williamsburg. Hotel is older, but when BW acquired it, they did some heavy remodeling and updating. The staff was super friendly, beds were very comfy, and the breakfast was more than adequate. It's in a great, centralized location--maybe 15 minutes from Busch Gardens, 10 minutes...

First, the staff at this hotel was great....harried and stressed (it was crowded!), but they worked as quickly as possible to get you what you needed. Second, the rooms were comfortable, clean, and we slept well. For breakfast, the selection was ok, and the workers fought a futile battle (again-HUGE crowd) to keep the food replenished and the area clean....

Rooms were very dated. Not clean at all. Where ever I touched I felt it was sticky. One day our beds were not made! Another day water outage between 10am and 4pm. I never felt comfortable due to dirtiness of the rooms. I was on the 4th floor and there was a terrible smell in the hallway one day! Had...

I stayed at the Best Western for a couple of days while visiting Wiiliamsburg. The hotel is very nice in appearance inside and out. The check-in was nice and the desk clerks were wonderful. The lobby area was clean and had probably the nicest breakfast area I have seen in quite a while. I had constant problems with the wii...

This hotel was in a great location. It was near all the sites..Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. There are also a lot of places to eat and cool places like the General Store. The rooms were comfortable, and the staff was professional.

The stay was awesome. Only problem was the noisy neighbors which wasnt the hotel's fault. The pool was nice, a little overly chlorinated but otherwise nice. The breakfast was better than I had thought it would be.

Great location and a great value. The breakfast was above average with a good selections of breakfast items and good coffee. Kmart is right across the street in case you forget to pack certain items. Also, you have a great selection of restaurants in the area and you are close to the historic area.

Check-in staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast room was bright and welcoming; menu was varied. The only negative was the service. Many people were waiting for food to be refilled.

This hotel is well situated close to the historic area. Rooms were very clean, well equipped. Hotel lobby was very impressive and inviting. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. One of the nicest GW's I have stayed at. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away.
