“Very nice- good value”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Here for the second of three nights. Very nice motel for the price. Have adjoining rooms ( one handicap ) in the main building. All is good. Very large spacious rooms , comfy beds and the breakfast in the morning is good - more than just the good old muffins and cereal. Am very pleased and would come back for sure.

I always stay at Best Western for business, this one is THE BEST ever! It's looks like something you would see in Williamsburg. Beautiful brick exterior, well kept. The lobby is done in dark, rich wood paneling.
The rooms are large with a soothing decor. The bathroom is split, vanity and sink is just outside of the tub/shower, loo. Lots of hot water, wonderful showerhead. Very good lighting at the vanity. Comfortable beds. Easy to adjust heat/AC. Our room was very quiet despite the number of people staying there as well as a wedding party. The rooms, halls, lobby, breakfast area are spotless! You can tell the staff takes pride in their work. Housekeeping staff were all singing and laughing as they worked.
There is a gym and 2 pools.
Breakfast is hot and varied, eggs, sausage, waffles, muffins, yogurt, fruit and juice. The staff replentished constantly, as well as cleaned up after people left tables.
Check out took all of 2 minutes, and I was so glad to meet and talk to Joe Joyce, the General Mgr.
The area around the hotel has anything you could want whether it's food, retail, services, and of course Richmond is near by.
I can't wait to go back, and will go out of my way to stay at Governor's Inn.

Our family was coming together from various places in the United States to attend the funeral of my brother-in-law. This was a most difficult and extremely sad period for us all but thanks to the wonderful staff of the Best Western Team they helped ease our pain in a big way. When we checked in, Tina at the front desk conveyed condolences and had arranged that our rooms would be located on the far side of the building due to a party that was taking place. This ensured peace and quiet for us. The rooms were spacious, very clean and most comfortable with very good beds. Both the water temperature and shower pressure was excellent – we were on the third floor. The breakfast was delicious with a tasty selection of eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, toast, cereals, juice, fruit, hot beverages, etc. Most noteworthy in the breakfast area was how Marsha kept everything hot, fresh and clean and provided heartfelt words of comfort. Joseph Joyce and his staff should be commended. Professionalism, Attention to detail, Care, Class and Compassion are their hallmarks. They epitomize the very best! God bless you all.

My husband and his friend had to go to Richmond on business. Each of them had a king size bed in their respective rooms.

Pros- According to them, and the pictures they brought home with them, the hotel was great. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were clean and the pillows were of normal size (unlike many hotels going to the "designer" pillows). Both of them said that the water pressure in the shower was excellent and the water was very hot (which both of them loved). Since the hotel is off the highway, they said that parking was plentiful and safe. They also liked the added security in the hotel- you had to swipe your room key to get into the building and into the rooms. The morning staff was friendly. The wireless internet was working appropriately. They were going to downtown Richmond for a meeting, which was 8 miles away, but they said it was very convenient and we got a great price.

Cons- The air conditioner/heating unit was hard to control. The temperature was either freezing or super hot as it did not have a thermostat, and both men said that it was hard to control the temperature in their rooms. The pool is outdoor, which means it is unusable this time of year in Virginia. According to both of them, the decor in the place looked like a prison, more specifically, the Tower of London. The exit door was a wooden monstrosity with what appears to be bars, and with the stone walls....Tower of London or The Shining movie depending on which man you asked. In other words, kinda creepy. Also, the night staff was a little curt. The only other issue was the walls were thin in between the bathrooms. My husband said he didn't hear anything in his actual room, but when using the bathroom, he could hear what his neighbor was doing in the bathroom.

Did not try- The breakfast, as neither one are breakfast people.

Overall for the price, they each would give between 4 and 4.5 stars. So if you get a good price, its a good deal- just ignore the decor.

Room Tip: I got a really good deal on both rooms on Expedia
