Loved Our Stay
We loved our stay at this hotel! From the moment we walked up to the desk, we received excellent service. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was super. It was very clean and decorated well. Our children loved the pool and fitness area.
The pool was well maintained and clean. The lobby was beautiful.The business center provided computers the children enjoyed.Our children commented this was the best hotel we had ever stayed in.

Loved my stay in this hotel
After reading the reviews for this hotel my husband and I decided to make reservations for 3 nights at $68 per night. advance purchase...As soon as we arrived the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful with all our questions and annouced us that our reservation had been upgraded to a suite ... something that made us very happy since this was a very special stay for us.
We loved the hotel so much that we decided to stay an extra night. was $81 due to being a weekend night .. something I knew already since it was posted online.. no surprises I like that!
I do not have any complaints about the hotel, staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, no maid woke us up early in the morning to service our room, nor we heard the noisy vacum cleaners... We always left our room around 9 AM and we never saw any service cart... BUT when we returned to our room around 5 or 6 pm our room was always clean with new toiletries supplies and clean towels.
The hotel is brand new, it opened in Sept 2006 according to the front desk clerk.. I hope and pray it will stay as is, it is a little jewel.
This review is my own and no one from the hotel nor their parent company had paid or asked me to post it nor take any photos... It was done on my free will. anyone interested in seeing more photos of the hotel are free to contact me I just wanted to post the photos from the room where I stayed in.
This place is tops!
This was the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. I walked around my room in white socks, and when I looked at the bottoms of my feet, they were perfectly clean! Also, because I am a member of this hotel chain's rewards program, they upgraded my room to a suite at no additional cost. The manager and staff are very friendly and helpful as well.
Top Choice in Williamsburg
My husband and I just returned from a pleasure/business trip to Williamsburg, Virginia where we stayed at the new Holiday Inn Gateway on Bypass Road. This is not your typical Holiday Inn. Its styling is ultra modern with clean lines. Our room was quiet, comfortable and impressive, providing every amenity you could want including a separate sitting area, microwave and refrigerator. The staff is warm and made us feel most welcome. The manager greeted us personally for breakfast. The restaurant provided a nice ambience to complement its varied and delicious menu. The exercise room is well outfitted with equipment for either the business traveler or vacationer - a welcome change compared to hotel exercise rooms which provide 1 or 2 broken treadmills or stationary bikes. We will definitely be staying at the Holiday Inn Gateway the next time we are in the Williamsburg area. And, we can't wait to tell our friends and families about this jewel of a hotel and its great value!
Loved this hotel
Stayed at this lovely new hotel over a weekend. Room was large and spacious and very clean. Pool was refeshing and heated.Staff was helpful and knowledgable about the area. Lobby and resturant decor was fresh and modern. Lobby had a beautiful water feature behind the front desk. Very refreshing for a Holiday Inn. Not your typical Holiday Inn. Would highly recommend this facility as it probably is in a class by itself in this town.
An Excellent Hotel in Williamsburg, VA
We spent Thanksgiving weekend staying at this recently opened, newly built hotel, while visiting friends and family. It was very kid friendly, the boys 4 and 8 years old along with their Dad enjoyed the wonderful indoor pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast was delicious and served promptly on the first day, while the next day we enjoyed the many options in the buffet where there even was a chef making eggs to order. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites, it came with a dining and living area, it was so spacious that it felt like an apartment. These were not your normal interconnected rooms that have their own entry doors that we get at most hotels that we have stayed at. There was just one entry or door from the hallway into the suite and then a door into each bedroom from the common dining and sitting area . So it was very comforting for us to know that the kids were safe but also allowed my husband and I our own privacy. We loved this place and would recommend it to any of our friends and family. In fact we are already planning to revisit over the kids' Easter break, this time with my mom, sister and her family to visit Busch Gardens.
Während eines Kurzurlaubs nach Williamsburg übernachtete ich mit meiner Frau und unserem Sohn im Holiday Inn. Als brandneues Hotel war es in einem ausgezeichneten Zustand. Mein Sohn war vom Hallenschwimmbad und vom Whirlpool begeistert, meine Frau liebte die extra großen Zimmer und ich freute mich darüber, dass Kinder im Restaurant kostenlos essen. Absolut super war das Personal - man hatte wirklich den Eindruck, sie freuten sich, dass man im Hotel ist.
Bei unserer nächsten Reise hierher werden wir wieder hier übernachten. Danke.
My wife, son and I had the opportunity to stay at the Holiday Inn during a recent gateaway to Williamsburg. Being a brand new hotel, it was in great shape. My son really enjoyed the indoor pool and jacuzzi, my wife the extra large rooms and me the kids eat free in the restaurant. Above all was the way the staff made you feel like they were happy that you were there- we will definately stay there on our next visit. Thank you.
The new Holiday Inn & Suites, Bypass Rd, Williamsburg, VA, is great!
Three of us celebrated our 50th birthdays (girls' weekend in Williamsburg) and had a wonderful stay in this hotel. It had been opened only three weeks and although it was a weekend that a tropical storm hit, the staff was cheerful and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and clean and the food in the restaurant was delicious. I highly recommend this place and hope that they can keep up the good work during the often difficult and hectic tourist seasons in Williamsburg

... br> As we contemplated our impending life in Zimbabwe, we considered the lessons we may learn from the colonial trailblazers in Williamsburg: Devika hooted and hollered, celebrating the freedom to use her "outside voice;" Neela embodied the Protestant work ethic as she doggedly wiggled her first loose tooth; Chaaya was the very personification of British stoicism as she admirably withstood a wicked yellow jacket sting with barely a whisper. Our work here was done. ...
... birthday is the 29th and we weren't sure exactly where we'd be, so we celebrated early. Tonight we took a tour, again in candlelight, called the Ghosts Among Us. It too had historical impetus as all of the stories involved actual residents of Williamsburg. We also explored Jamestown,(they've done a lot of new excavation) and were able to learn so many new things about America's first settlement. I knew that Yorktown had been a decisive battle in the revolution, but ...
... went to Colonial Williamsburg and got multi-day tickets. It is much larger than when I was here in 1977. So there is much more to see. Today it was rainy and Steve had never seen Monticello. So we drove about 100 miles, and out of the rain, to see Jefferson's home. Things have changed there as well. There is much more discussion about the dichotomy of Jefferson's position on the equality of all men and hatred of slavery, while continuing to be a slave owner. They are also rebuilding ...
... we are sure there is an official name for his position but we missed it if he said it). The guard that is leaving is then also inspected and the two leave and the new guard does exactly what the previous guard had been doings hen we arrived. They seem to have an automatic clock and turns and clicks his heels about every 20 seconds. Very impressive and moving.
When this was done we saw on our map that we were close to the Nurses Memorial and Sheree ...
- Spent the day walking around Colonial Williamsburg and hanging out in a couple of local coffee shops.... great vibe here!
- Crossed the Chesapeake "River Tunnel" on the way to Maryland. It's a consecutive series of 3 bridges & 2 tunnels back-to-back that spans over 20 miles from Virginia to Maryland - very cool drive (see pictures).
- Stayed in Salsbury MD tonight to be ready for tomorrow's drive. ...
