This was a really nice place to stay! The people that ran the hotel were wonderful!

Everything was great except I have a bad back and need a softer bed. It was hard on me as I was there on business for 4 days.

It is a very nice, economical place to stay. This was our second stay here and we brought friends along this time. The WiFi was not very good. However, the place was comfortable and very clean. The staff was responsive and helpful. Don't expect a Marriott or Hilton, but this hotel was convenient and comfortable. The bed was good, even if the decor was a bit dated. Plenty of hot water and a good night's sleep.

We stayed two nights in this hotel while we visited Busch Gardens. The biggest thing about this hotel is that it is very, very clean! The walls are thin and there is some noise at night. The second night, there was a group of people talking outside of our room. We called the front desk and within a couple of minutes the hotel staff politely asked them to move into their rooms. I was very impressed! The room was small, but plenty for what we needed. This hotel is very close to Busch Gardens. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We enjoyed staying here. Room was very clean. Bed was not very comfortable. We are not people who need to stay in some fancy room at high prices. So this place worked just fine. Its on a little side street so it was quiet and quaint. We often make weekend trips to Williamsburg just to get away so we will stay here again.

Considering the price, we really enjoyed our stay there. The location was great - just a couple of miles from the Visitor Center. The room was on the small side, but very clean and comfortable otherwise. Breakfast selection was minimal, but I wasn't expecting a whole lot considering how much we paid to spend the night there. Overall, a great bang for the buck. We would stay there again.

The room is a good deal for the price, quite comfortable.

Hotel was better than expected for the price. Could have had a more comfortable bed though (more pillows, a blanket between sheet & thin hotel comforter.)

Everything is great, though the continental breakfast leaves something to be desired. More importantly, the room was very clean.

This hotel was only 3.8 miles away from our destiantion, Busch Gardens and the price was great for what we got. It was also cleaner and quieter than I expected. All we wanted was a comfortable place to rest after a fun day at the amusement park and that was exactly what we got. I would defeintely stay here again.

Clean room. Excellent location!!!! Great value. Nothing fancy but didn't expect that. Plenty of rooms available for $200.00 plus a night if that's what you want. Definitely will stay there again. Minutes to downtown colonial city and W&M college and theme parks. Short and beautiful drive to Yorktown.

We've stayed in a few different hotels in the Williamsburg area, and I would say that this Econo Lodge is a great deal for the money. As others have said, it is an older motel, and it shows its age. But, for me the most important is that it was clean! Clean linens with no stains, clean floors, clean bathrooms, no hairs. I was really impressed how clean it was, especially considering the age. The bed was comfortable. There are some hotels that are a little cheaper, but they aren't as clean and comfortable. And, for sure there are more expensive hotels in the area, but are definitely not worth the place. If you want a nice, clean, no-frills room at a very good price, then I definitely recommend this Econo Lodge.

The hotel was super close and convenient to Colonial Williamsburg. Though it was older it was kept up very nicely. Overall it was good for the price.

Room clean comfortable and convenient. The breakfast availability saved much time each morning. Except for other guests very quiet.

this hotel is a descent place to stay. it aint nothing fancy but is fairly close to busch gardens water country. and colonial williamsburg. the room was pretty clean but did find one bug running around. but over all it was a pretty nice place to stay.

We came here to visit family, so we didn't stay long in the hotel room. We needed a place to sleep for the night, and the hotel provided just that. The breakfast did not have many selections, so we didn't have it there. All told, it was an okay hotel.

Good place to stay for the price. Colonial Williamsburg was wonderful.

Overall, a good experience and value. Continental breakfast needs to add fruit to the selection. Cereal and donuts just doesn't cut it.

Older rooms, however well maintained and very clean. Great room for the money.

The staff was very nice. The room was a little small and dated, but well maintained and very clean. We got a king sized bed (which always makes a room seem smaller) and it was really comfy. It is also less than ten minutes to Busch Gardens which is why we where there.
