    Another Happy Stay at the HI Express


    My husband and I spent two nights at the HI Express in October 2004. As others have said, this is an outstanding and very reasonably priced property. The building is very new and well maintained. The rooms have refrigerators and micro waves for those who want a snack (or in our case, some wine and cheese.) Our room had a comfortable chair for reading. The lobby is quite nice--much nicer than you would find in comparable places and the breakfast was fine. We would definitely stay there again.

    This is the second HI express we have stayed in and it is clearly a good chain to look for.

    Exceptional Hotel


    My family and I recently stayed at the HI Express for 3 nights. It is a wonderful property. I can only echo the other reviews of this hotel. It appears to be a very new property. Everything about this hotel is very nice and very clean. I recommend this hotel highly.



    My girlfriend and I stayed at the Williamsburg Holiday Inn Express the latter part of September 2004. After staying in the Colonial Houses on site in Colonial Williamsburg, the Holiday Inn was a breath of fresh air! The room was spotless, as was the entire hotel. In fact, we often saw the staff scrubbing the tile in the elevators with a large toothbrush and taking scuff marks off the wall. The whole place smelled clean also -- it was divine.

    This was absolutely one of the best hotels I've stayed in for many years -- AND, at only $80 a night (more than half the price of the Colonial Houses). I would go back in a second!

    Excellent hotel - superb location


    We stayed at the HI Express while visiting Busch Gardens & Water Country. Check in was swift, the suite layout was excellent and I simply couldn't fault the place. We'd been staying in a much more expensive Holiday Inn up the coast, this place beats it hands down.

    Breakfast with the cinnamon rolls was also excellent, there's a good choice of yogurt, cereal, fruit juice, muffins, breakfast muffins....the list goes on.

    Location is also good, it's about 15mins each way to the two parks. Restaurants in walking distance include Chilis, Cracker Barrel, Hooters, a great Japanese sushi/steakhouse and another good steakhouse that your cardkey tells you about.

    Stay here - it's great and the value is superb!!

    Great family hotel


    We stayed at the HI Express from 8/29/04 to 9/3/04. Our first experience at a HI Express was an overall excellent experience. The hotel is new and extremely clean. The staff was always cleaning something. The rooms were good sized for a family of 5. The suite is perfect with two queen beds and private sitting area(sofabed)/computer area. The free internet access was great and gave the kids something to do instead of watching TV. The Microwave/Fridge was perfect for our little ones to hold juices and bottles. The breakfast in the morning was just enough to get you going. The best feature was the heated indoor pool. The kids loved it and it was a great way to relax after a long day or rainy day. The front desk staff provided great customer service when things went awry and they were so friendly. The hotel is located in a great safe area with plenty of places to eat and it was only few miles from highway(I64) and only 10 minutes to Busch/1 hr to VA Beach/1 hr to Kings Dominion. We would highly recommend this place for families with young kids. It was well worth it and we will be back again.

    Great place to stay


    My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Williamsburg in August. It was very nice and clean. Staff was great. Very comfortable beds and nicely decorated. We will be back.

    Great service, clean, new, and worth it!


    This hotel is a great place to stay for families(We're a family of 5). The suites are very roomy and its so new, nothing is worn. The corridors are very wide and the service was great. You asked for towels or pillows and had them in minutes. The breakfast was great for a continental and saved on time in the morning. Location was great! We changed hotels upon reading these reviews!

    Having not been to Williamsburg since I was a kid, alot has changed. If you intend to visit all the museums, then purchase a ticket. We just wanted to walk the streets and visit shops which doesn't cost anything, however, so much walking in between!!

    For Busch Gardens and Water Country, its worth the Bounce pass for 2 or 3 days! We hope to do it again!

    Awesome Hotel for an Awesome Vacation Destination!!!


    My family and I spent four nights here from July 26th through July 30th. This is the most awesome Holiday Inn Express that I have ever stayed at!!! We had a King suite with a pullout sofa. It had a refridgerator, microwave and free high speed internet. It is very obviously a new hotel but is also well taken care of. The cleaning staff was very friendly and very good at what they do. One of the ladies talked to us every morning as we were leaving for the days activities.

    The rooms were very clean and the bed was the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. Everything about this hotel was great. We got caught in the rain one night while visiting Busch Gardens and were drenched. The hotel has guest laundry services with three washers and dryers. They offer complimentary detergent and dryer sheets. We were able to do laundry before retiring for the night. The lobby area was exquisite and the free breakfast was awesome.

    The hotel is located in a very nice area with just about any restaurant you want nearby. It is also nearby a couple of Mini golf courses and go-karts. Busch Gardens and Water Country USA are also only a few minutes drive away.

    We spent two days at Busch Gardens and one day at Water Country USA. These are both extremely awesome theme parks. Busch Gardens not only has top of the line rides and attractions but is also a very beautiful park. The only other park that I have ever been to that pays attention to detail the way Busch Gardens does is Disney World. Water Country USA is the best water park that I have been to. It has numerous family rides which was awesome for my seven year old.

    I very highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in this area!!

    Great stay at the Holiday Inn Express


    I spent 4 nights and I had 3 rooms for a family wedding stay. The hotel was perfect for us. The staff was very polite and helpful - they mailed my ring that I left in the shower back to me! The cleaning staff was wonderful and friendly. The refigerator was huge and there was also a microwave. The lobby / breakfast area was very comfortable and was available to sit in at all times. The hotel was spotless. The only suggestion for improvement is to add handicapped parking spaces in the front of the hotel (they are only in the back), - the disabled room was good and accessibility was no problem. The hotel was booked solid all weekend (Memorial Day) and they did run out of the nice cinnamon buns and danish by Monday and Tuesday and they were replaced by mini muffins, still pleanty to eat at the breakfast, just not as much choice as upon arrival. I would select this hotel again if in Williamsburg.

    Loved it!


    This was a great place to stay! We absolutely loved it. We are not sure why it is never mentioned in any travel reviews. Maybe it is too new.

    The room my husband and I had, was beautiful and very spacious! All the staff was courteous. When we checked in, our room was not ready. They were very apologetic and gave us a discount. It was not a big deal to us, we just went and had dinner first. Would recommend to anyone.

    ... at the Church of England. Of course, King Louis had a motive: the French had been handily defeated by the Brits and he wanted revenge. So he thought an alliance with the colonies would be just the thing. Well it worked, but France took a heavy toll financially. There was no way the Colonial government could possibly repay the debt they owed…not in gold, for sure. They had none! Did we ever pay them back? Think about it….World War I and II? ...

    ... some of those folks who had planned to attend the Trump Rally in Virginia Beach are having second thoughts.

    Today’s forecast, while still including possible showers, was better than any day forward so we left early and headed for the Visitor Center at Colonial Williamsburg. We met Jamie at the welcome desk and found her to be a wealth of information. She told us all the points of interest we MUST see and gave us maps, maps and more maps. ...

The fresh Virginian air indicated that food was on the agenda but first we stopped for an oratory by General Washington berating the English for offering poor prices for exported products. Next it was to the Tavern for a hearty fare of Pasties and a pint of the finest ale. Trading back our chariot we perambulated ...

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, ...

    ... see it. We walked over and noticed that all the gravestones were women. Finally we found the statue of a nurse and below it row upon row of women who had served their country as nurses at some time in their lives. Some were as far back as the Spanish American War. There may have been male nurses as well but we only saw female names where we were. We then headed out over the 200 acres to find the family graves. We had the map and the numbers and thought we could ...
