We stayed at the Griffin Hotel as part of Colonial Williamsburg Revolutionary package. The package included two nights in the hotel, three day tickets to Colonial Williamsburg, and breakfast buffet two mornings. They also included a drinking mug that you can refill for $1.00 each time. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The bathroom has two sinks, which makes...

The rooms are very large, gigantic in fact, with interconnecting balconies that make it easy to accommodate a group or large family. The beds we had were king sized with a queen size sofa-bed. The bathroom was large with two doors to separate you from the sleeping area. The rooms were clean and the staff did a nice job with...

We had two adjoining rooms, one with a fireplace on the first floor. Rooms were beautifully furnished, with a lovely patio overlooking a pond and woods. We were able to walk everywhere - restaurants, attractions and the college. Would definitely return.

Nice and clean. This could use some updates. It is outdated but the grounds and the convenience of location makes up for it. Construction was a minus that was going on next to it and I couldn't find the slippers or bathrobes that were advertised. lol to sum it up it was clean and the staff at the motel was...

After a couple of the other negative reviews, I was a little concerned (primarily with a "moldy, mildew smell") before arrival. This was NOT the case at all. The room was spotless, extremely large, and had a fireplace. It was private, secluded, and cozy...amazing really. The service and staff were fantastic. There is a lounge area with endless k cups,...

Great location adjacent to CW and very nice setting (pond and woods in back) but construction zone next door at the Inn, and odd layout of the room (very narrow hallway along closet area was only path or travel to bathroom, so getting dressed for formal dinner event was challenging). Fireplace in room and attentive staff. But next time likely...

The plusses are that I was in Colonial Williamsburg! The hotel is part of the Williamsburg Inn, however, not on that property. A staff member drove his car, which we followed to the hotel about 1/2 mile away to escort us there. It was a very quiet setting with a balcony overlooking a pond. Free parking. The room was spacious...
