perfect in every way

My daughter and I were on a little history/geneology tour of Virginia. We stayed at another hotel on our first night out which turned out to be rather unpleasant so when we checked into the Best Western Historic we were so relieved to find everything so clean and comfortable. The hotel is located very close to historic Williamsburg which made it super convenient and even the complimentary breakfast was delicious. Thank you for making this leg of the trip so enjoyable.

Make a reservation at one of the taverns in historic Williamsburg. It is totally worth every dime.

Perfect!

This was a great trip-- staff were very nice & went above and beyond to accomodate us (even after we checked out). The room was big and clean, the pool was cool and refreshing, the continental breakfast was really good (eggs, sausage, french toast sticks, cereal, yogart & COFFEE).

Summer Getaway 4 days

Having a breakfast ready at 7 am was great. Never having to worry about going out for breakfast was even better. It wasn't like breakfast out but it wasn't continental like others call continental with cold cereal and coffee and juice. They served hot egg patties, hot sausage patties, hot french toast, all of course previously frozen, but still better than just toast and cereal. There was coffee, tea, juices, milk. Toasters to toast the muffins and bread. The place was clean all over and especially the room. Staff was tremendous at all times. Pool was great , although hot being enclosed.

All-around pleasant experience

The Williamsburg Best Western was very centrally looated yet off the busy traffic area, so that we could have daily walks. Very nice bath storage area with lots of shelves, so that personal items did not have to be stored on top of and clutter the counter space. Room was very well maintained. Pleasant hotel staff. All told, it was a very nice 3-day stay; and we would not hesitate to book this location again if in the area.

Best location and service!

Especially liked the maps to historical locations. first time I was NOT lost in Williamsburg. Polite and helpful staff. I came a day early and they accomodated me and I did not have to change rooms. Like the laundryroom. Quiet and nice indoor pool.
