Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently visited Williamsburg with a large group of jr high students and stayed at this Best Western. It was perfect! First, the location is excellent; convenient to all of the sites (we toured Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, & Yorktown) and within walking distance to restaurants (we enjoyed dinners at Cracker Barrel & Golden Corral), entertainment (mini golf, ice cream), and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

I have never stayed at a Best Western before, so I had no idea what to expect. My family and I were very happy with our stay and would definitely chose a BW property again. The hotel is located very close to Colonial Williamsburg and not far from Busch Gardens. The front desk staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating....

Convenient location, clean modern rooms and friendly staff. The free breakfast and all day free coffe and juices were nice. The price was reasonable at $79/ night. I didn't list this in the Best Western Plus review, but having designated adult only hours at the pool would be a nice amenity. We enjoyed our stay there and have plans on...

This hotel was a great place to stay. Very quiet. Friendly service. Great breakfast. Close to many attractions such as Colonial Williamsburg, Bush Gardens, outlet mall and many restaurants. Williamsburg is beautiful.

Just came back last night. Couldn't wait to share how perfect this location was for our Busch Gardens vacation. Indoor heated pool, walking distance to Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel, Kmart and several other cool restaurants. Adjoining rooms made this a nice option for a family with kids and gradparents!!! Would definitely book again.

In a hotel rich area I think you can do better. While clean and spacey room, that was the highlight of our stay. We came down to breakfast about 8am to find that much of the food was pretty much gone. The only pastries were mini poppy seed muffins. The waffles were the the toaster variety. We returned mid afternoon...

We come into Williamsburg often enough and have never stayed anywhere other than the Doubletree. However, this time we couldn't find the deal we usually get so we decided to look around. Reviews for this hotel were ok and since we are hardly in our room anyways, we opted in to save some money and stay here. Location-wise, we liked...

This property has been given a BW PLUS status, yet there is no way this is a PLUS for BW. It is old and dirty with no way of updating it by renovation to make it a modern PLUS property.
