Comfort Inn Williamsburg Gateway

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I am a very picky traveler and read many reviews and look at a lot of pictures prior to choosing a hotel. This hotel delivered in every way I want a hotel to deliver. It smelled very clean, the beds were clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. As for the breakfast I was more than impressed with their FREE BREAKFAST! I was initially concerned due to reading about the picked over items and egg rounds. What I found was a selection of cereals, waffles (with 3 waffle irons so there was little wait), breads, oatmeal along with toppings, apples, apple and orange juice, whole and low-fat milk, yogurts of different flavors, and YES egg rounds and they were not bad! There was also coffee and hot water available at all hours. If someone wants more, and to pay for it, the hotel is right next to a Denny's. The pool looked very clean and inviting, although my family never got the opportunity to enjoy it. It is also within the Williamsburg Triangle so close to the historic sights and near local restaurants and shopping malls. I would definitely stay here again!

The hotel is well located for visiting Colonial Williamsburg. It's not full of amenities but the rooms are good sized, there's a pool and small gym. Everything is quite new and soothing in color. What is not soothing is the noise from the hallway...thin doors or just loud people? What I really disliked was the coverlet on the bed. It felt like I was sleeping under a shower curtain. However, the staff was really helpful and super friendly, everything was clean as a whistle! It's close to the historic area and not terribly far from local and chain restaurants. Overall, we would stay again.

We are frequent travelers to Williamsburg (3-4 times per year) and The Day's Inn Historic has been our hotel of choice for many years. It is truly "home away from home". The updated renovation is modern and fresh. This hotel is spotless and very well run. Everything you would need for a comfortable stay is here. Large clean rooms with comfortable beds , refrigerator , microwave and flat screen tv and this hotel is close to all of the Historic Triangle's Attractions. Many thanks to David, Ron and Staff for their excellent Customer Service and Professionalism. Looking forward to our next visit this Fall. Maria and Tom Sweeney

We had a nice stay. Check in was speedy and friendly. Our room clean neat and spacious. There were several familys with young children staying near our room and we never heard them. Bathrooms are a bit small. Close to lots of eating places!

We stayed for two nights while visiting Williamsburg. The rooms were looked like they have been recently renovated. Staff was very helpful. Our only complaint would be that you have a lot of hallway noise at times because there is an opening under the doors of about an inch.

Our family recently stayed at this hotel in the heart of Williamsburg. It was a very comfortable stay and close to everything. It was also one of the only two hotels in the area that has two queen size beds per room instead of the normal full size which was a must for our family. The staff was very helpful with any needs we had including taking the time to help my son connect his Xbox 360 to the internet and room TV. The breakfast was a carb lovers dream and the area was clean and well stocked. I would have liked more protein options instead of just egg patties. The hotel looks like it has been renovated with a modern style which was nice but was not very practical when you do not have towel racks in the bathroom. We had a family of four with four bath towels and only two small hooks. This really did not help with wet beach towels and bathing suits. Also, the beds did not have comforters or blankets on them only a thin sheet like cover which was not comfortable when you have the air conditioner on all night. We had no problem getting blankets when we asked. Despite these little things we would stay there again.

Can't say enough good things about this place... If you study the pictures about this place it still doesn't do it justice. Hope you like WHITE AND BRIGHT.... White everywhere.. even the bed spreads. Not your typical loud colored flowered designs to "HIDE" stains. White bedspreads... That is something I have never experienced (not that I'm world traveler) but I had to wear shades to tone down the brightness. Any way if you are going to Williamsburg this is your hotel for sure. Please read my other posts you will find straight up truths about the area.
