Great Budget Family Accommodations

The Governor's Inn may be an older motel, but the friendliness and the expertise of the staff made our stay a pleasure. The free breakfast in the morning was adequate indeed: fresh fruit (apples, oranges, or bananas were the fruit of the day), hard-boiled eggs, instant grits and instant oatmeal, donuts and danish, toast, bagels and english muffins, frozen waffles, coffee, tea, and cocoa. The hotel was a short 5 block walk from Colonial Williamsburg which made it easy for us to leave the car at the hotel. Because it is an official Colonial Williamsburg hotel you get a discount for Colonial Williamsburg tickets. We did not purchase tickets as they were still rather pricey, choosing instead to stroll the streets and visit the shops. We used the savings to visit Jamestown Settlement and Berkeley Plantation instead, which we highly recommend. Yorktown was very enjoyable too. I highly recommend the Governor's Inn as a safe, extremely clean and well-kept budget option. The pool was large and just what we needed after a full day of sightseeing. Why pay for fancy when all you are going to do is sleep there? Will definitely come back next time we visit Williamsburg.

Nice location

Not super fancy, but clean and very conveniently located for walking to the local attractions. Staff friendly, free continental breakfast had a decent selection. Outside area could have been a little better kept. Never used pool but was a nice size and looked clean.

second Williamsburg trip this year

Good value for the money. House keeping does their job. We stayed a week and the breakfasts became very repetitive. Soon we had to eat out just to beat this lack of taste. Also, weekend was very crowed so that is the best time to eat breakfast out, It both breaks the taste cycle and gets you away from the many hotel stayers who overfill the eating area. Overall would stay again.

Try a Colonial Williamsburg restaurant. High cost but makes you part of the action, kind of.

Great value location

Inexpensive in the Fall, similar price to other places, but you get the Colonial Williamsburg extras! Great discount on season pass, shuttle van WITHIN the Historic area (can be slow), priority res. for dinner and night programs, if done in advance, tasteful, clean rooms. Ordinary economy bkfst., but at least something. Very nice for the price.

Historic Tavern dining fills up in advance, so reserve. Can be expensive; but worth the experience.

Nice walk to historic sites.

Nice location and Williamsburg ticket discount. Friendly staff. The room's dated and the air conditioning not quite up to task, but worth the savings.

Great value

We booked for one night because we arrived a day early for our time share. We have done this other years. This is a convenient location with clean rooms and the important amenities - including coffee and breakfast.
