For the rate it was ok...but the beds were pretty uncomfortable but the pillows were comfortable. The ac didnt work well. Breakfast area was total chaos and people had to wait quite awhile for food. Check in and check out was good and the staff were courteous.

Had a great stay here for 4 nights, right from the door, the lobby was getting renovations, but you wouldn't know it,what I mean by that is that there were no disruptions to the lobby at all, the rooms were a little old, but very clean, housekeeping does a bang up job, the pool was a nice touch after a...

From the outside the hotel looks neglected, but as soon as you step in the doors it is a different story! The lobby is beautiful and the customer service is exceptional! Although you can see the age in the rooms, they are VERY clean! The only negative of this hotel was how thin the walls were. Laying in bed, you...

Our family visited Williamsburg and Busch Gardens this past weekend and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Front desk staff was friendly, room was comfortable and breakfast was adequate. Very close to historic area as well as Busch Gardens. Our only complaint would be the quality of the tv - poor sound and picture. We would stay here again.

Overall, I would say our visit was very good. A bit disappointed with breakfast as the eggs were a bit runny & the sausage links lukewarm. We did have problems with the room keys but that was corrected quickly but the bed comfort was not exactly what I would expect from Best Western.

The hotel staff and the location (close to Colonial Williamsburg and William & Mary) are the best things about this hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the internet worked, and breakfast was just fine. Would stay again.
