Rodeway Inn Historic

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice clean hotel within walking distance from colonial williamsburg. It's a little older in the decor but the rooms are spacious and clean, fridge and microwave, comfortable bed, very decent breakfast. We enjoyed the porch in front of the room and the historic layout. Easy to walk to the history district from there

The office is very old and drab looking and when we got to the room we found it to be the same. It needs some life and color to the room we stayed in. There was food in the refrigerator when we got there from the previous guests. There was paper left on the floor by the bed. The coffee pot was nasty on the inside and outside. The mirrors had not been cleaned at all. We took this trip to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. It was very disappointing and we couldn't afford to pay for this stay and go somewhere else. For me, the overall rating was higher than I would agree with.

This motel is easy to find, in a less traveled part of town. It shows its age, but is functional, comfortable and kept reasonably well. The staff was amiable and good spirited. The breakfast was fine but not fancy. I thought that the walking distance to the east end of historical Williamsburg would be a plus, but we did not walk there from the motel. We could have, but we started at the visitor center, walked from there and took their shuttle back.

The hotel room and bathroom were clean. We stayed one night and it was good. The cable worked and wifi worked as well. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast items were mostly gone when we went (9 am). So we grabbed a coffee and headed out for the day. I would recommend this hotel. For the price it was a great hotel.

Rodeway Inn Historic was a good compromise of price and quality. We could not afford the higher price options, but still wanted clean, safe, and comfortable. Rodeway was it. Wifi worked great. The room was larger and cleaner and more comfortable than the Travelodge we previously stayed in up the road. Area was quiet and accessible to W-burg. Jay was friendly and helpful. The benches on the patio outside the rooms were a very nice touch. Liked the waffle option for breakfast! though the dining area was a bit small. The room door was tightly fit (humidity expansion?) and difficult to push open (important note for handicapped or elderly). No vent in the bathroom and the a/c controls didn't seem to work quite right (stayed colder than the setting). Also, the maid apparently mistook my wife's milder soap for a used bar of hotel soap and threw it away. These were very small discomforts though. In the future, if we can't afford the $129+ options we would prefer, we would choose Rodeway - Historic again!

My girlfriend and I visited Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestowne, and Yorktown for Labor Day Weekend and we couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel. The location was fantastic (within walking distance of Colonial Williamsburg), the noise from the road was never a factor, and the old, drive-up layout of the rooms gave the place a greater sense of privacy. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff were friendly, respectful, and helpful, and the courtesy breakfast, while not expansive, was more than adequate considering it was on the house. If you need an affordable, comfortable, perfectly located place to stay in Williamsburg, this is a great option.

I enjoyed my stay at the Rodeway. Easy check-in. Good location--walking distance to colonial Williamsburg. Ample coffee.

We really enjoyed our stay. Hotel clean, room was clean, bed is comfortable, good location, close enough to Colonial Williamsburg. Breakfast is okay. This hotel is great for my one week vacation trip.

Overall good stay. Bathroom could had been cleaner

great hotel for the money bit dated but very clean and roomy staff was great

The room was nice and spacious. When we arrived 8/20/11 the shower didn't work so the woman at the front desk checked it and went back to get a screwdriver to tighten the handles herself so we wouldn't have to wait for maintenance. (She gets 5 stars) Our third night 8/22/11 the toilet clogged (Not due to misuse), I called the front desk and the night manager (his name was Dick I believe) told me to come to the office, pick up a plunger and unclog it myself. I couldn't believe it! If it wasn't for him I would stay there again but not after that.

In town for a wedding and needed a place to shower, change, and sleep. Desk clerk was curtious. Fifteen minutes after settling into our room, we received a call making sure that everything in the room was fine. In the breakfast room, there was an awesome gridle so you could make your own fresh waffle! Overall, the hotel met our needs. We would stay there again.

Location is good as it is near the Visitors Center if you are interested in the Restored Area of Williamsburg. This is an older motel and is getting a little tacky and needs some remodeling but was clean and quiet. No special services such as a fitness center but we were not looking for that type of place.

We stayed over night after a long day at Busch Gardens. The staff was very friendly and the room was perfect for resting after a long day in the sun. For the price it was a great deal. We were close to everything we needed for our short trip.

Prefect for a weekend get away to Busch Gardens or Williamsburg. Minutes away from everything, and free breakfast in the morning.

when we arrived it was nothing like the pictures and reviews described. The rooms were nasty. There was black mold in the bathroom, they smelled bad, there was a crack in the middle of the door we could see out of. The walls are super thin and could here everybody.

old hotel in historic area

Everyone

The office is very old and drab looking and when we got to the room we found it to be the same. It needs some life and color to the room we stayed in.
