The hotel is newer than the others in Williamsburg on Bypass Rd., but I will probably go back to those hotels, as I like the location better. There is not much around this hotel, so if you don't mind being a little further out of the Colonial Williamsburg or Busch Gardens, then this is a very nice place. I stayed...

BornPicky, Thank you for taking time to review #TheHolidayInnExpressWilliamsburgNorth. We are glad you found the hotel met most of your desires. Indeed, we are not on the crowded corridor of tourist hotels and chain restaurants. Some folks do prefer that central location and don't mind the frenetic pace, traffic, and bustle during high season. Only two traffic lights away from...

Very clean and new! Friendly , helpful staff. Complimentary breakfast is just average. Keurig in room was a bonus because coffee in hotel restaurant was just fair. Easily visible from the main highway. Close to the outlet stores, restaurants and about 10 minute drive from historic Williamsburg .

Valerie M, Thanks so much for the feedback regarding your stay; guest input is so valuable to our ongoing effort to enhance or facilities and service. As a nonstop coffee drinker, I agree that a great cup of coffee is essential - the Keurigs are a great start. But per your comment, I will look further into our processes and...

Attractive facility with exceptional staff, attentive, and very courteous. Great appearance in the whole facility. Breakfast though is just adequate. The fitness center is limited to a treadmill and bicycle, could use more equipment such as weights, bench etc. Rooms are quiet and secure. The location is a bit out of the way, but an easy drive about 5-10 minutes...

From the staff to the rooms and the great indoor pool. Everything is excellent here. I traveled with a large group and they even opened the breakfast a little early on a Sunday morning for us. Nikka and the other staff in the breakfast area were so kind and accommodating. I look forward to staying here again in the future!
