An outstanding location with great comfort. Service was outstanding as was the room and food. We will definately be bad and I highly recommend staying here. Ask about restaurant recommendations, Billy made some great suggestions.

We loved our stay at the Fife & Drum Inn B&B. Our room looked out at William & Mary College diagonally across the street. It had painted floors, a roomy bathroom & shower and delicious breakfasts. The TV nook area in the dining room had hot drinks & cookies 24/7. The entire B&B is upstairs in the Scruggs Bldg. Next...

We have stayed here a total of six nights over the years. The location is great and the inn itself is a joy. And the breakfast is the best ever! The only disappointment we ever had was there were no chocolate chip cookies left when we returned late after the July 4th fireworks. We love those cookies!

Wonderful inn! It was our second time staying and we will be back again. Great location, accommodations, and customer service. It is located near the historic shopping area and is just two blocks from the historic structures of Colonial Williamsburg. Highly recommend.

This hotel is a bit hard to find since it is on the second floor. Even with the GPS it took us a minute to find it. That said, it is very conveniently placed, parking is nearby, the breakfast was good, and the room was excellent. I might recommend a bit more table space since several of the tables in...

We stayed here for a College Visit. We arrived after 6 pm, but we were able to check in our room with the note/keys that were left on the front door. We stayed in the Restoration Room which was perfect for the 3 of us. Great shower too! The breakfast was good and ample and loved that you could have...

The hotel is set up much like a bed & breakfast. There is no formal check in desk. The rooms are on the second floor so there is a stair case to negotiate. We stayed in the small "cottage" down the street from the main facility. Billy and Sharon were gracious and very helpful on things to do. The rooms...

I loved our stay here! It is quaint and charming...and so friendly. The decor is pure Williamsburg and you can learn a lot just by examining the framed pieces and artwork in your suite. The location is PERFECT for walking anywhere in Williamsburg. Also, I love that there is a great coffee shop next door. Breakfast was delicious and the...

My girlfriend and I spent a weekend here for a quick vacation getaway. The rooms were perfect and comfortable, and the service was very pleasing. The location of the F/Drum is outstanding. Ground zero to everything you could possible want. No driving needed whatsoever which was a nice touch after a tavern or three. When we go back to W-Burg...
