    Nice, Clean Hotel for the Price

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in July for three nights. We booked it online for less than $100 a night. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was pleasant but not too helpful with directions. The rooms were average size. We did not go to the indoor pool, but it looked small. The breakfast was nothing special. The room that it is served in is very small and only has a few tables to sit at. It was easier to bring the food back to our room and eat it there. The hotel is convenient to all the area's attractions. We would stay here again.

    Not Good

    from

    We recently stayed at this hotel and can't say that we were impressed at all, especially for the price we paid. The front desk staff was very nice and friendly - that was a definite plus. The negatives: our room was not very clean...we found a used bandaid next to one of the beds, the bathroom is extremely small, the door just barely clears the toilet (and the toilet is extremely slow), the towels and the toiletries are of low quality, and the breakfast buffet is not impressive. If we had paid closer to $100/night, then I would think that we got what we paid for. We paid over $160/night and I felt like we were ripped off. I would not stay here again, there are much better places for the money.

    Appreciated the Country Inn and Suites

    from

    Our daughter became ill before we even arrived in Williamsburg. Unfortunately, we saw very little of the colonial area other than a brief drive around town. However, we really appreciated the Country Inn and Suites because we spent two days in our room watching TV while we hoped that she would begin to feel better. The room was clean and comfortable. All that we needed was there including the surprise addition of a little refrigerator which came in very handy. We ended up having to leave early in order to come home and head for the doctor. The staff and the maids were very helpful and very understanding about our situation. The continental breakfast was also sufficient to keep us fed in the morning, including some plain items that even someone sick could try to eat. We would definitely stay there again.

    My favorite hotel in Williamsburg

    from

    My family has been visiting Williamsburg for over 11 years and we have tried all of the moderate to better/best hotels in the area looking for "the place" to return to. Well, finally we have found it. We stayed here over the Halloween weekend 2004. This hotel is well furnished, very clean, the staff pleasant and the cont. breakfast was better than average. I was really impressed that they kept refilling the items on the breakfast even at 10 minutes before closing. The bathrooms are large with 'full' counter space for everything. There is a fridge in the regular rooms and a 25 inch TV and DVD. The beds were a tad firm but not lumpy and the pillows were not worn out. The room decor was in good shape (the place is only 4 years old) and I could not find any mold anywhere. I have found mold in many of the hotels in Williamsburg previously. All-in-all this is a great place and I would more than recommend it to anyone.

    Nice place to stay

    from

    We stayed at the Country Inn and Suites for two nights during the week of May 17th. The location was convenient to everything we wanted to do. The motel was clean and the breakfast provided was sufficient. The free cookies are a nice touch as is the available DVD rentals. We would stay here again.

    Pleasant, Roomy

    from

    We stayed here early April 2004 and reserved 2 connecting rooms for our family. The staff is very accommodating. The rooms and bathrooms are a good size. The beds were comfortable, although the pillows are very tall. Rooms, furniture, baths and beds were clean. A refrigerator in each room; a nice and useful surprise. One room had a very slow toilet (a problem throughout the hotel we were told), but it never got stuck. Good housekeeping service. Very convenient location for all attractions, shopping and dining. Adequately fusnished. Excellent laundry facilities (Maytag Neptune equipment). Very nice pool. Summary - - clean, quiet, convenient and comfortable.

    Breakfast is a big disappointment, especially since this area is big on pancake breakfasts. Only bagels, mini-muffins, 3 kinds of cold cereal, watered down OJ and Apple juice, frozen French toast (which you toast on your own). No hot food (except for instant hot cereal). Only one kind of fruit (if any) and mini cups of Trix yogurt. When you're in a rush, though, it is convenient to eat breakfast in the hotel, which is included in your rates anyway.

    Best to call the hotel's reservation service directly for best rates - don't rely exclusively on the travel web sites.

    Great hotel

    from

    we stayed here in early july for 1 sunday night with no reservation, after we checked-out of the raddisson afer being shown 2 awful rooms.

    the country inn was very cozy and definitely decorated in a country style. the room was large and comfortable. the breakfast was ok, pretty typical, but good. the pool was pretty big and the staff was nice. i will return.

    Country Inn and Suites saved our vacation

    from

    After my family and I refused to stay at the hotel we had originally booked (Quality Inn Historic) as it was horrible, we took a chance a to see if Country Inn had a vacancy for 4 nights. Thankfully it did. Our vacation was saved. The suite we got was large, very clean, nicely decorated, 2 TV's and DVD players. The hotel itself is lovely, very homey. Indoor pool was very nice as was whirlpool. Continential breakfast consisted of juice coffee, cereal, muffins, bagels, fruit, yogurt, and a hot dish which changed daily. Very nice! Front desk staff were very helpful, especially Lona. Had 2 sets of washers/dryer which was a plus. Fresh cookies at the front desk were a nice touch. Though it was twice what we were going to pay at our first hotel, you do get what you pay for. It was well worth the price and we would stay there again anytime. We will also look for other Country Inns on our travels.

    Clean room, helpful staff, but chintzy beyond reason

    from

    We were sent here after the accommodations we reserved were uninhabitably filthy. Thankfully, this hotel had clean rooms, a clean pool, and friendly and helpful staff.

    Our expereience was marred, however, by extreme cost-cutting in areas like linens (fitted sheets not large enough to stay on the mattress) and breakfast (watered down juices, off-brand cereals, only a single toaster for over to prepare the frozen french toast for a full house of guests.)

    To add insult to injury, those who choose to rent DVD's (we did not) were charged $9.95 for each.

    When one pays nearly $200 for my room, these things should not happen.

    One does not expect extravagance at that price, but should find the expereience to be a treat, or at least what one would buy for one's own kitchen.

    This might have been a nice place to stay were it not for the pervasive aura of cheapness surrounding nearly every minor detail.

    Great Place To Stay !!

    from

    I have visited Williamsburg so many times that I've lost count of how many times I've been there ... and all but twice I've stayed at the Country Hearth Inn & Suites (starting long ago when it was known as The Capitol Motel). They've always shown me great consideration, and the room I've been assigned has always been clean and the maid service great, too ... would recommend this motel to anyone. I have plans to go again this year (2003) and will be staying there.
