Best Western Plus Historic Area Inn
Ranked #18 of 73 Hotels in Williamsburg
Reviewed 13 August 2014

After having stayed at many hotels in the Williamsburg area, we are most satisfied with the BW. This was our third stay at this location. Without a doubt, the best value; clean, comfortable, very convenient to attractions and shopping AND very reasonable (so we can stay longer!) The fresh baked cookies at check-in are a big help for testy kids.

Coming to Williamsburg and seeing all of the different hotels to choose from me and my boyfriend decided to go with Best Western. When we first walked in we were greeted by Eric and Alex and they were very nice and provided us with information about the hotel and a map of the area which we really needed. We booked a king with a jetted tub which was perfect! Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable.The hot tub and indoor pool was one of the best that we have came across. The breakfast was great, the only thing that I would suggest would be to have bacon more often but besides that the breakfast worked for us. They were very close to all the attractions in the area. We WILL be back later on in the year to enjoy this hotel!! See you guys soon.

This is a very nice hotel. It is clean, comfortable and has all the basic amenities you can expect from a 3 star hotel. It even includes complimentary breakfast and parking. It also has a good location, about 2 miles from the historic Colonial Williamsburg.

All of this at a reasonable price!

Poor cleanliness, faucet still had toothpaste drops from previous guest, bathroom floor sticky, hair on shower wall. Stained pillow covers. Returned them to house keeper, she gave me three and one was dirty which I returned to her. Good location to Historic area and BG if visiting, many restaurants nearby, a plus. Average room and poor value because this is a Best Western Plus, I was expecting more. Uncomfortable bed and pillows. Bill, hotel manager was great, switch our rooms, but the bed wasn't much different just a bit better. They brought more pillows, and one of the pillows had the dirty covered I return the previous day. Another hotel messed up by housekeeping. A good note, showers weren't draining well and they took care of it immediately, good job!! The continental breakfast left me wanting more. The coffee tasted bad, they need to check those lines. I went out for breakfast the next morning which ruins the whole purpose for the continental.

We really enjoyed this hotel. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was conveniently located to everything. The bed was very comfortable and quiet. The Pool and hot tub were very nice. Breakfast was good but very crowded

Good location for everything and the staff were all friendly and helpful, special thanks to Bill for helping to sort out my IT problem. The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also a good size and had a convenient shelf under the wash basin – it also had one of the easiest showers to operate. The breakfast area is way too small for the size of the hotel and although there are additional tables and chairs on the patio, very few people seemed to be aware of them as the area had to be accessed through the swimming pool. Perhaps a notice? Otherwise, good choice for breakfast.

The location is great for traveling to the historical areas. The hotel staff were courteous and the rooms were very clean. The beds were soft and comfortable too. Breakfast was tasty and there was a variety for cold and hot. Breakfast was a challenge later in the morning though. If you do not like to stand in line, go early between 7-7:30. That is the only downfall from making this a perfect score, otherwise everything else was great!

Thank you for your review, we apologize for the difficulty during breakfast which we do experience due to the limited seating space. We did add an outside patio which relieves some of the pressure but we still have a challenge. We do the best we can but apologize for the crowd during summer.
