“Great location, clean and friendly service!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Clean room, convenient location, kind staff and all around good hotel. The breakfast was nice serving complimentary eggs, sausage, cereals and three waffle irons to make your own. It's right on Bypass Road and minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Family friendly too.

We picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was everything the reviews indicated. The entire place appeared to be recently remodeled. The room was clean, well decorated and had two queen sized beds. The bathroom was clean and freshly renovated. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast provided by the hotel had very good make it yourself waffles. They also had hot oatmeal. I was surprised there were no bagels or pastries. Overall our experience was very good and this hotel is high on our list to stay at again.

Dear Goodnews315,

Thank you for taking time out to share your recent experience. We are glad to hear that you were well satisfied with your stay. Our hotel completed a $4.5M renovation 1 year ago and we are pleased that you enjoyed the hotel. We are sorry that bagels and pastries are no longer on our breakfast menu. Days Inn Worldwide revamped the menu and is promoting healthier options to start your day featuring eggs, yogurt and kettle style oatmeal with toppings. Thank you for your business and we hope that if your travels bring you back to Historic Williamsburg that we will see you again!

I recently returned home from the Days Inn Historic Area and for the most part it was a great stay.
Positives -
Very nice looking and updated.
Staff were great in our limited dealings. One day the GM was even in the hall and asked about our house keeping.
Excellent wifi.
Great pool.
Hotel is very clean. Entrance is beautiful. Just a side note about the
AC - I didn't realize you could keep the fan running all night, so the AC keep cycling throughout the night. Very disruptive to light sleepers. Leave the fan on if you like background noise.
Negatives -
Sand paper towels. Wow are they rough.
Firm beds. I love a firm
bed but these are too firm and the pillows are awful.
Bathrooms are too small. Barely any clearance between door and toilet.
Sticky nasty spot on the carpet. We just left a small hand towel on it.
Closet is way too large and sticks out into the room.
Doors are too thin. You hear everything.
Breakfast could be better with varying choices. We wound up skipping it after the first day because it was way too crowded. Kids had cereal. Waffle wait was more than 15 minutes.
I know it sounds like a lot of complaints but I am just a little picky and would like to let others know my impressions. I'm not sure if I would stay again just because of the bed issue. I really left with major backaches and combined with all of the walking a decent bed and rest is very important.
It was a great hotel for its price and purpose though. Kids had a great time in the pool. At night parking fills up quickly. We got home about 10:30 after fireworks and had to practically park at the next hotel. Lots of great restaurants nearby along with all of the major attractions.
Nice job Days Inn.

Very comfortable and well maintained property, well located for visiting Williamsburg or William and Mary. Not cheap in any sense of the word: comparatively expensive for a Days Inn, but also very much a cut above many locations in this chain. Mostly fast food in the immediate vicinity, but excellent restaurants within a five to ten minute drive.

I usually never stay at Days Inns, but was really impressed with this hotel. You'd think it was a newly built hotel. The rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions. The breakfast was good. The pool looked refreshing, but we didn't have time for a swim. We enjoyed our stay.

This hotel was modern, clean, convenient, affordable, and had wonderful staff. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The pool is very nice. The breakfast was good, too. The best part of the stay was the manager and the other staff. They were so nice!
