This property is in an extremely convenient spot for visitors of the Historic Triangle. It is showing its age, though. They are doing some renovation work in the lobby which is a good sign. The breakfast options are very poor. It seems like the owners are really trying to cut corners there, and it shows.

Experience at this hotel had goods and bads and so I rate it average overall. Here's the pros and cons of our stay experience: Pros: 1. Close proximity to what you would like to do in Williamsburg. Colonial area is just a short trip down Richmond Road...outlet malls are a short drive the other direction on the same road...New Town...

I would suggest trying one of the other hotels in the area as this Best Western simply doesn't rank as one of the better. Although they had construction going on and had signs posted they simply put us into a room right beside the construction. The hotel was almost empty and it's obvious why.

Hotel staff is very good. Rooms are well kept and clean. Amenities are good. The breakfast needs some improvement, not much selection, but what is there is good. This was my second stay at this hotel, and overall it was a good experience and I plan to use it again next year. A good place to stay and reasonably priced.

The hotel had a location that was great. It was close to everything in Williamsburg. There was a Kmart across the street and many restaurants that were very close. The price was reasonable. The hotel rooms needed updating(not just painting the old walls.) The rooms were clean enough but obviously had saw better days. There were a few signs for...
