We love staying here on our trips to Williamsburg. Great location right near Merchants Square. Billy is always helpful with respect to things to do and places to eat. The breakfast is perfect and we like the reserved parking right around the corner.

The Fife & Drum is a really great place to stay while visiting William & Mary or Colonial Williamsburg. It is in the heart of town and adjacent to some of the best places to eat, ie Aromas Cafe, The Blue Talon, and Kilwins. The rooms are clean & comfortable and the staff is wonderful. Breakfast is delicious and served...

Fabulous rooms, excellent food, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful innkeeper and wonderful location. For our two night stay, we stayed in 2 different rooms due to room availability during our stay. They moved us from one room to the other seamlessly. Excellent recommendations on what to do in Jamestown and places to eat around the area. We loved it and look forward...

We like to walk in the historic area and enjoy the restaurants and shopping on Merchants Square, and no accommodations are more convenient than the Fife and Drum. Billy, Sharon and the staff do everything...

My neighbor and I made spur of the moment plans to drive up to Williamsburg from coastal North Carolina. I was in charge of accomodations and checked if the Fife and Drum had any vacancies the first week in December. They did not have two single rooms available, so we took a two bedroom suite that worked out fine. The...

The Inn itself is unique and been restored with attention to all decorating details but includes up to date modern luxuries. The Owner and Staff are friendly & attentive to...
