Good Hotel, evn if a bit gently worn

It is a nice location with good staff. We did notice a lot of minor cleanliness and order issues. Damage to furnishings not repaired. The overall value was good due to a 3rd party booking discount. A minor investment in refurbishment would likely yield a much better guest experience here.

Staff

Good stay. All went well. Only problem came at checkout when I could not get a receipt. I pre-paid the stay. I was ask if I wanted a receipt and I did. Could not get it because of a jammed printer according to the clerk. Did sign and see a copy of the amount which was different than the prepaid amount. Was in a rush so did not wait. Later I called and verified that I would not be charged again. I was told on pre-pays, no receipt is available. Seems like a paper showing the stay was paid would be in order and/or the clerk would have mentioned I would not get the receipt. However, no big deal, I will return to this Best Western on my next visit.

Very pleased!

Every year, my husband and I travel to Williamsburg for the sole purpose of going to Busch Gardens and doing some shopping at the outlet malls. This hotel is very close to both of those locations as well as a variety of dining choices. The hotel was very clean with a friendly staff. The pool and hot tub were great ways to relax after the day was finished. I simply have no complaints about this hotel. It may not be one of the more expensive places to stay, but for the price, you just can't beat it.

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.

Jamestown/Williamsburg vacation

Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Everything seemed quite new and well kept. Good parking. Although "Historic District" title, there are no hotels close enough to walk anywhere. Plan on driving quite a distance, and not many restaurants close by. Road construction was next road over, but not a problem. Very much enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Staff was very helpful and friendly,
