Staff were friendly and very helpful especially woman at front desk sorry i forgot her name she was great. Room was clean and spacious

Location location location was perfect for us. Also the breakfast provided was good. I will definitely stay again when next I am in Virginia.

Property was very rundown. Carpets were dirty and stained. Very bad odor in our room.

Good location, nice comfortable rooms and polite staff. We will stay again.

bed was uncomfortable. great location for shopping and dinning too.

Friendly & attentive staff. Quick & easy check in & out. Room is clean. Has microwave & ref . Pillows are so soft. Hubby likes to use indoor pool & mini gym .Hot breakfast a plus. Hotel is near lots of other places to eat and places to visit & explore. A few minutes drive to the outlets. Only minor complaint when taking a bath / shower, water is slow to drain & bathroom don’t have exhaust fan. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay & would come back again.

Stayed here when visiting Williamsburg. Good location, nice restaurants close by and decent price. Would stay again!

This hotel is centrally located to a whole lot to do. They also offer free breakfast-not just donuts and Danish but a full breakfast that was included in our reservations. That was a definite plus. The only down point and it really wasn't anything major was that our room phone didn't work (although we didn't need it) and there's no exhaust fan in the bathroom which was odd. Other than that the good certainly outweighed those few issues. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and convenient. Neat and clean and beds were super comfy. Id definitely stay there again. It was a very nice experience.

Nice beds, bathrooms, and front desk staff. However there were ants wandering around the desk surface and some were on one of the beds (!). The next morning we had gone out for breakfast and apparently the maid decided to go in at 10:00 AM to make up the room...even though our stuff was still there. We got back to the room at 10:30 AM to pack up for checking out, and found the room was a mess. The bathroom no longer had any soap since the maid already threw it away. Pretty bad since we still wanted to use the bathroom and checkout time is at 11 AM.

Great place. Close to Williamsburg. Very clean and very friendly people. Made us feel at home

Nice place, comparable to most hotels like this.Staff pleasant, good breakfast, good location.

Staff was great, but bathroom floors dirty and breakfast was very disappointing. Already made boxed pancakes, caned fruit. I’ve stayed here before, last year for the clendlyness and great breakfast, and now very disappointed.

Stains all over carpet, room smelled moldy, felt dirty, unfriendly front desk employees couldn't even smile and say hello at check-in.

My mom loves this hotel but she is 78, I think for the money we could do a lot better.

Ran out of tissues and toilet paper, had to go ask for both. ROACHES crawling on walls after dark. (Counted 6 in our room) Beds very uncomfortable.

The hotel is in a nice area and friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again.

While we have stayed in far worse places, this BW was disappointing. I'll start by saying the staff was great and the location is spot on. The pool is large and warm, and the three video/pinball games were a nice touch. For the price ($109), however, I think you could get a much better experience from one of the many other hotels in the same area. Note the Internet was not working while we stayed, and I was asked to actually call the Internet company to work it out. After 30 minutes, I was told there was an equipment problem on my floor. Unfortunately, we could not connect from any floor, and ended up tapping the Econolodge wifi from next door (had an important task to complete). Was told by staff that the hotel has problems with Macs and iPhones, but this seems like a problem most hotels have figured out. Also, the floors/carpets in the hotels could use a good steaming, something that cosmetically would make a huge impact. And, our room had stains on the comforters and no desk or chair or other furniture to lie items on. It was inconvenient and in such a large room looked odd. It wasn't promised, but you should be aware of this. Overall, if everything else is booked, you will not hate this hotel. Given other options, we would stay someplace else next time. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g58313-d110787-r397370670-BEST_WESTERN_PLUS_Historic_Area_Inn-Williamsburg_Virginia.html#
