        Historical Traveler Reviews Patrick Henry Inn Williamsburg

        Great place to stay!


        We truly enjoyed our 2003 Grand Illumination weekend stay at the Patrick Henry. The entire staff was great. Our key was not working properly, and the maintenance staff corrected the problem within minutes. Due to a last minute change in plans, our dog had to accompany us. I gave the Patrick Henry a call, and was told she could join us for a small one time pet fee. What a relief. They are very pet friendly. We were in a king whirlpool room. It was very nice, roomy and clean. The free continental breakfast was a nice start to the day. A very short walk, and you are in Colonial Williamsburg. What a perfect location. We will definately stay there again.

        Pet Friendly


        The Patrick Henry Inn is conveniently located within a few minutes walk of Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms are simple, but nice. There is an attractive lobby. The staff members are friendly. There is lots of parking. Best of all, the inn is pet friendly and the staff are very courteous to us and our small, well mannered dogs. The free continental breakfast is simple, but it's good and gets you up and going in the morning. We have received coupons for reduced prices on subsequent visits.

        Horrible Place!


        This is the worse hotel I have ever stayed at. First off, on there sign outside it stats that there is a lounge. There was a lounge but that has been closed for 3 years! This place is soooo out dated. I felt like I was traveling back to the 70s. The room was dirty, hair in bathroom, sheets had stains. Staff and especially management was very rude! Do not stay at this hotel.



        Stayed 4 nights in late October. Rooms clean and good Continental breakfast. Front desk always friendly and helpful.

        Bad News on Several Counts


        1.) There is no security at all. I stayed on the first floor and the locks were broken on the outside doors leading to the corridor. Any fool could have walked in.

        2.) The maid did not make the beds nor clean the room one day. I asked for some compensation for this oversight and was not given any.

        3.) The room service is on again/off again depending on the personnel that day.

        4. There is a trashed car permanently parked in the parking lot.

        5.) The lobby and corridors are dark and dingy.

        Not Bad for Old Bones


        We recentyly visited the Patrick Henry end for a weekend. To be an older structure the PHI isn't bad at all! The front desk clerks were really nice, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area. We stayed in a King suite it had two rooms in one room was a sofa, TV, VCR, and a half bath. In the other room was the bed was a king size bed, full bath room, TV, and the 2 person spa(that sits directly in the middle of bedroom, and the bathroom?) The tub sits in the floor with a shower curtain on both sides no wall. There was some spots on the ceiling over the tub look like it could have been some water damage. Our friends stayed ina king size room as well their room was the same except for the living room area. Meaning they had a king bed and a spa(which was made exactly the same as ours.

        The room was kept very clean. The common areas were neat and clean as well. However the continental breakfast needs some work.

        I would definately stay there again.

        Not the greatest....


        We have stayed at many hotels. Taking a quick trip North we decided to stay at the Patrick Henry Inn since on it's sign out front it said restaurant and lounge. The lounge was closed and had been for a few years! The exercise equipment didn't work, and the game room left something to be desired. Unfortunately, we will not be staying there again. On a good note, the room was kept clean.

        A satisfied customer


        Our family recently spent 3 nights at the patrick henry in williamsburg. The staff seemed friendly and knowledgeable, (except for the waiter or bus person who couldn't speak english). The room was clean and neat, except for some bathroom mold, a bath fan might be of some help.Our beds were made and towels changed everyday. The continental breakfast was average, cereal, bagel, muffins, coffee, juice, etc.The pool area was clean and towels were provided. there were two separate buildings, the first is where you check in. Here is where the dining room is, the pool and the laundry. The other building is where the conference room is located, but you have to walk through th parking lot to eat or swim etc. The location of the hotel was very satisfactory to us. Directly across the street was the beginning of the colonial village. We were also a short drive (5 minutes) to busch gardens and water country. I would stay again if I were in the area. By the way, if you're looking for a good place to eat, try the Sportsman's Grille on rt 60 in the Busch corporate area. Small friendly, good and reasonable food.

        Best Western Patrick Henry


        The Patrick Henry needs a good scrubbing. I have stayed there before and it has gone downhill fast. Dirty bath. Lumpy pillows, stained sheets and towels, radio didn't work, filthy windows and torn carpets. For the money, I could have saved and stayed at Red Roof. I won't be back. Next time, Hampton Inn.

        The Grand Illuminiation


        For many years I have wanted to visit Colonial Williamsburg for the Christmas

        season. This year I got my wish. I got fantastic airfare from Buffalo, NY to

        Norfolk. We rented a minivan at the airport. We drove with no difficulity to the

        Best Western Patrick Henry Inn. What a wonderful surprise was in store for us.

        We had a room on the 3rd floor at the end of a hallway which made it very

        private. The elevators were right there a long with the ice machine. Very

        convienient. Our room was immicaulate. The beds were very comfortable.

        I was slightly dissapointed when I looked at the shower head. I judge rooms

        on the shower head in the bathroom along with other things. I was pleasntly

        surprised though that the whole thing was low enough that I could actually take

        a shower and not get my head wet. And the water flow was just as good as

        a shower masage type head. The FREE continental breakfast was very good.

        Each morning they had 3 kinds of cereal and milk, tomato juice, bagles, english

        muffins, small powdered donuts, mixed fruit, oj, coffee and tea, along with all

        the condiments. You got a vocher to present for breakfast. We had 2 double

        beds for the 2 of us. My brother-in-law and his wife came the same weekend

        we were there and they had planned on staying in another motel for only 1

        night and then going home. They had planned on coming down very early in

        the morning so we could go to the parade at 9 AM. They decided to come on

        Friday night instead. We asked at the front desk and they let them stay in

        our room for 1 night with out any questions. They even changed the

        breakfast vocher from 2 to 4 for us. They also have lots of books that they

        sell just outside of the resturant at the travel desk. I took a couple of the

        books up to my room to view them and when I brought them down I decided to

        purchase them. There was never a question asked about my returning them

        at all. We could walk to the Colonial part of Williamsburg. It was a VERY short

        walk. We did walk over on Sunday evening for the Grand Illuminiation. The

        hotel gave us these viewers. Watching the fireworks with these made the

        most wonderful fireworks that I have ever seen even more intense. I would rate

        these fireworks 200 times better than any I have ever seen in any of the Disney

        Parks. After the program we walked back to the hotel to attend a Groaning

        Board. It was served family style and we sat with 8 other people that we did not

        know. It was a wonderful experience. My husband is a terriable tryier. He did

        try all the food that night even though some of it was things he was sure he was

        not going to like. He did really like the Peanut Soup. I really would like to find

        a good recipe for that kind of Peanut Soup.

        All in all I would give this hotel a 100 % rateing. We also got a return

        certificate for 15% off next visit. Our room was about $65 a night for the whole

        week that we stayed. When we visit again we will deffently stay with them again.

They give us a discount though, and hey, it’s got cable! Maybe I’ll get to watch some of the new season’s TV shows. Wendell will be thrilled. That’s okay, I put up with his 3 hours of Rush Limbaugh every day.

        After dropping off yesterday's crew at the space dock we have travelled back in time to 1774. Firstly we purchased an open carriage complete with driver and 2 horses. Our 2 horsepower vehicle was the equivalent price of a new Lear Jet today. As men about town we toured the borough waving to the peasants as was the custom of the day and by waving to ...

        I felt much better, but I was still very tired. I suggested to Barbara that she go into Colonial Williamsburg by herself, because if she waited for me, she may never get a chance to see it. She was not ...
