Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites Williamsburg-Richmond Rd.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn on Richmond Road for four nights. The public areas of the hotel were nicely decorated and well maintained. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. We booked a one bedroom suite which was perfect for my husband, teenage son and myself. It was very clean and nicely appointed. The matresses in the bedroom were very comfortable. The pull-out sofa was not so wonderful. I would not recommend it for an adult's sleeping but, for kids, would be ok. My biggest complaint was the traffic noise from the busy street. There is some noise from room-to-room and from the halls. There is also a train that you can hear going by periodically. We had a hard time falling asleep despite the comfortable beds.
The location of the hotel on Richmond Road was very convenient and central to attractions, shopping and restaurants - some within walking distance. Note that the hotel is not a resort (didn't expect it to be) but has no grounds at all other than a parking lot. It's a good place to end the day after seeing the sights.
Unconfortable beds and pillows
The room and hotel in general were VERY clean. The service was great. However, the beds were really hard and unconfortable. The pillows were also unconfortable to the point that we had to sleep without them. I would stay somewhere else since I like to get a good night sleep.
We travel to Williamsburg every year and I believe my hunt for the perfect hotel is over. The Hampton Inn was in the perfect location also! It is very beautiful and clean. They have newly remodeled and it looks great! The staff was very friendly and courteous. They has a full breakfast and complimentary news papers. The indoor pool needed to be warmer though. Otherwise our stay was fantastic!
A wonderful place to stay....
I have been a frequent visitor of Williamsburg for the past 18 years and have always had a favorite motel to stay in. Last year I decided to try something new, and in my past two trips I have stayed at places that were OK but not great. This past week I stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites and was more than pleasantly surprised.
We arrived early and were given our choice of rooms. We chose one on the second floor and while there was no view, the room was spotless and the bathroom was the largest I have ever encountered in a moderately priced hotel. It was also spotless. In our room was a coffeemaker with coffee and tea, a microwave, iron/ironing Board and a refrigerator. We unpacked and went out for a while, and when we returned we found a message on our phone from the front desk checking to see if everything was okay.
We always prefer going out for a big breakfast, but the next morning my husband went downstairs just to get some coffee while I was getting dressed. He found that every morning there is a different hot entree, along with muffins, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, fruit salad...and much more. We had an early appointment one day and decided to eat in....the room was bright and airy and the breakfast was a big surprise; much more than I have ever encountered at a complimentary breakfast. The daily paper is also provided near the breakfast room, also complimentary. There is coffee and tea brewed all day by the front lobby.
The parking lot is in the back of the building, and one evening when we returned to the hotel we found a security car, which made me feel very secure. In any case, the back door to the hotel can only be opened with your room key.
All the little "perks" made for an extremely enjoyable stay, and this is definitely my new favorite hotel.
Could have been better...
You can definitely tell signs of wear and tear on this particular Hampton. The elevators were questionable and the rooms were clean but showed their use. The hotel was very crowded and lots of screaming/running children in the hallways - even late at night. Pool was overrun as well as the breakfast area. Of course, when you are at a chain hotel that is booked solid - what do you expect? My only real concern was the fact that I paid cash and had several issues with the front desk regarding the "application" of the cash. For example, they told me to "park" and then my receipt would be ready (after paying $500 cash). When I got my receipt, it just showed the amount as a credit, but did not specify that it was by cash. The receipt under my door on the day of checkout showed one night applied to cash and the balance to my CREDIT CARD that I had reserved the room with...needless to say, I was at the front desk in a jiffy. The same gentleman who checked me in was there and he assured me it was the night auditor's fault. He did print me a corrected receipt, but it did leave me feeling like someone was attempting to pull one over. All in all, it is a decent hotel but Hilton's other property, Embassy Suites, is much better in Williamsburg.
My family and I loved the spacious hotel. The lobby was large and open. We took one of the suites which was convenient for a family. Also, the location is key, right on the Richmond Rd. that contains many diffrent restaurants. If you have a family I recommend Hampton Inn and Suites.
Stayed here in April 2004 and loved it. The lobby was big and bright with TV . The rooms were large and clean and modern. The desk help were great . Morning breakfast was bountiful and well attended. Great location just a few miles from William & Mary & Colonial Williamsburg. We definatelywould return. Great rate $79
Good deal, but an older hotel.
I stayed here having never been to Williamsburg before. I got a good deal (huge suite in the off-season for $70) but I was disappointed when I saw how old the hotel is. I drove past several new hotels (Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express) that had only been maybe $25 more a night and would have been worth it. The room was showing its age - the curtains fell off the wall when I opened them! I had to laugh when that happened. A good deal though, and if you have kids there's plenty of room for them in this suite. Includes full kitchen and huge bedroom.
Get the take-out BBQ at Red and Blue down the road!
Room to move around in
We would definitely stay at this hotel again, the rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom was roomy also. We did not feel cramped at all. The staff was very friendly, and they were helpful giving us directions and dining suggestions.
Happy at the hampton inn
My husband and i just moved to the mid-atlantic area and wanted a inexpensive vacation. We got lost and called the hotel we were scared we would lose our room arriving after mid-night. They kept our room and give us directions. I had a problem with my room around 11:00 pm the second night the front desk fixed it right away. We reserved 7 nights but on the 5th day my husband had a job emergency so we left early. Usually this is a problem at other hotels no problem here. It is a cute hotel up-to date. Friendly staff,. no restutrant but a good size contental breakfast. The front desk staff made great resturant ideas. They seem very knowledgable. Good for families

... in that time period. It was much different than what we call hot chocolate. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar with vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne spices. The wig shop was quite interesting too. We learned how the wigs that the men and women wore back then expressed their status and ranking in society. We thought it was interesting that George Washington did not wear a wig, ...
A full day at Busch Gardens with Blake as we rode every ride (except the kiddie rides) in the park. Well, all but the Tempesto Roller Coaster which broke when we were just two spots away from riding in the front car. Oh well. The Naval Yard tour? Never happened as the little king ruled it out to get to the park quicker...
All the roller coasters were great, the water rides were also a big hit ...
... June inside that store, and after spending half my retirement savings on stuff, I wished them Merry Christmas as I left. They were sorry to see us go (more likely my Visa card).
Monday was the day we were supposed to leave, so we called the KOA office and extended our stay once again. We figured we would feel better on Tuesday, and we’d be outta here!
Tuesday, June 9 (And now we’re up to today):
... what is their. Williamsburg next and another historically significant town, lunch first and then free reign to wonder around with a deadline of 3pm. This is what and how we denote time on holiday, by pick up or drop off deadlines. The main streets of the town are traffic free, no vehicles are allowed and they keep the appearance of mid 18th Century life. Lunch before sightseeing of course, a trip to the The Cheese Shop where they make ...
The push was on today to complete the final two days of our ride across America. For most folks it is all about seeing the Atlantic Ocean. I remain more engaged with each day and the sights, sounds and history along the way. Today began by riding through a Richmond suburb and then older parts of the city ...
