Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites Williamsburg (Busch Gardens Area)
Witzig und sauber
Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit im Hotel. Unser Zimmer war sauber und es gab alles, was wir brauchten. Ich mag es gar nicht, wenn ich diese Reisebügeleisen und meinen Fön einpacken muss...daher finde ich es toll, wenn diese Dinge in meinem Zimmer sind.
Das Personal an der Rezeption gab uns gute Wegbeschreibungen für all die Sehenswürdigkeiten, die wir uns anschauen wollten, und alle Restaurantempfehlungen waren ausgezeichnet.
Mit dem Frühstück konnte man toll den Tag beginnen und es war wirklich gut für unser Budget.
Die Lobby sieht toll aus!
Wir übernachten auf jeden Fall wieder in diesem Hotel.
Fun and clean
We had a great time at the hotel. Our room was clean and everything we needed was there. I hate having to pack those travel irons and my hairdryer... so I love it when these things are in the room for me. We got great directions from the front desk for all the places we wanted to go and all our restaurant recommendations were delicious. The breakfast was a great way to start our day and really worked in favor of our budget. The lobby is awesome looking! Will definitely be back to this hotel.
Capped off a great Vacation
This was our first visit to the colonial Williamssburg and Hopefully not our last. Though we were rarely in the room,( so much to do in the area Ex : Colonial williamsburg historical sites, yorktown and jamestown battlefields, Plantations tours, Virginia Beach ,Buckroe Beach etc.) Our stay at the Country Inn & Suites was fantastic. It capped off a remarkable Vacation.The Hotel is nicely manitained , though it was too cold to use the out door pool. I'm sure some good times have been had in that pool .Being from New jersey were usually accustomed to pushy and rude hotel staff.What a surprise !!!! The Southern hospitally made a long hectic , rainy trip comforting and well appreciated.We packed way too much for the week trip , as we were checking in the One of the Hotels owners actually helped carry a few bags to our room.I wanted to tip him but he would have nothing of it. The room was bigger than we expected and completely renovated.One of the better chains , that i've stayed at on most of my Business trips.Everything was so convenient fom the restuarants,highways to site seeing.When ever we needed assistance on where to go , one of the staff was always happy to assist.One of the owners usually suggested the place next door. Ironically it was owned by them.You cant go wrong by eating there. One of the Best Burgers I have ever eaten.And I've had burgers all over the country.Home made fries are unbelievable.The owners father runs the Restuarant.What a comedian he was.Because we ate there almost every day, He sent us a round of drinks to thank us.We were usually wiped out by the time we came back to the Hotel but the peacefullness of the Hotel setting allowed us to get a lot of rest. The New Beds according to the Hotel clerk I'm sure helped as well.What a treat this week was. Looking forward to going back in the summer to go to Busch Gardens within walking distance, beaches,watercountry and rocking and rolling in the pool.I'm hoping for a few more rounds next time.P.s Great Golfing near by.
Un posto fantastico - personale molto cordiale
Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo soggiornato in questo hotel
A febbraio e ci è piaciuto molto. Qualità eccellente, ottimo prezzo e personale attento e cordiale. Williamsburg è una città fantastica da visitare. Ci torneremo presto!
Great place to stay - very friendly staff
my family and i stayed at this hotel in february and enjoyed this hotel - great quality, value, and the staff is attentive and friendly

Again, good but some problems
We stayed at this hotel during in October, checkin was smooth and we made our way up to our allocated room only to find that the room was already occupied. Luckily they weren't in the room at the time. On returning to reception I was met with disbelief that our room was already occupied. One of the cleaners went up to the room and confirmed what we had already told them. I must say that the problem was dealt with quite quickly after that and we were allocated a 2 room suite, which was a lovely room with microwave and fridge, table and chairs and two bathrooms. That night I advised reception that we would be staying another night. After breakfast the next morning (which was quite adequate), I checked with reception that we would be staying another night to be told that they had no record of my request and that it was good that I had checked as the room key stops working after 11.00 am. Overall we were happy with our stay here and we enjoyed Williamsburg as there was so much to see and do.
A good option
Stayed here while visiting Williamsburg in July 06. The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is literally only about 2 minutes from Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, and maybe 4-5 minutes from Colonial Williamburg. Getting to all three attractions is very, very easy. The room was clean and comfortable, my only complaint was that the heavy curtains in our room were not designed to be closed and thus let in a lot of light from the parking lot lights.
The breakfast does leave a little to be desired. To be honest, they advertise a continental breakfast, and that's what it is - anyone expecting a hot breakfast is being unrealistic. The area is a little cramped and when it's full, it is hard to get around all the people to get what you want.
All in all, it was an enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Also liked the free internet access terminals in the lobby.
Good, but with some problems
We just returned from our visit to Busch Gardens/Williamsburg. We stayed in a one bedroom room in this hotel. The room was nice. Clean, comfortable beds. The staff seemed helpful, although the front desk did send me to the basement for the guest laundry, when it is located on the 4th floor. 3 of the washing machines were out of order, and 2 of the dryers were out of order, and the front desk was out of laundry detergent to sell.. However, it WAS nice to be able to wash our clothes. (1.50 for wash, 1.50 at least for dry) (went to a local 7-eleven for detergent)
The pool was a plus, however, it was not very clean the first day. It was not "sparkling", felt dirty, and was salty for some reason. The next day it was a little cleaner, but was still salty and I couldn't smell any indication of chlorine. Maybe they use something other than chlorine.
The "expanded" continental breakfast was a little on the lame side. They had bagels, frozen waffles, bread, muffins, etc. If you are a carbohydrate addict this is the place for you. I need some kind of protein for breakfast. I would have been happy with even peanut butter to put on my bagel, but they didn't have it. So just beware if you are one of those people like me that doesn't do well on carbohydrates. I guess we could have gone out for breakfast, but then you lose the benefit of the free breakfast.
This hotel is really convenient to Busch Gardens, and since we spent the majority of our time there, it was a nice location.
All in all, it was not horrible, but not great either. I think if we go again I will stay somewhere that has some hot items for breakfast.
Very nice for the price
All of the renovations have been completed at this hotel. The beds were comfortable and clean.The hotel was conviently located to Busch Garden/Water Country. The free breakfast was adaquate-cereal, muffins, bagels, doughnuts etc.. The free internet acess in the lobby was very helpful. Our only complaints were that we did not receive a do not disturb sign and there was a closet area, instead of a closet with doors.
Great place - recommeded!
I just spent a very nice night at this hotel last week - this hotel is new, and was formally known as the "Park Inn". It's very clean, quiet, friendly staff, free internet in the lobby, and the view from our room of the woods was lovely. Nice pool. My only complaint is with the included breakfast, which is entirely bread-based - no eggs or anything. But don;t let that stop you - we enjoyed our stay here.

No sleep in this Saturday! Up at 0700 and bags packed we left Washington D.C./Alexandria, VA, for Williamsburg, VA. With traffic either speeding past us or at a snails paced crawl it took us about 3 hours to drive to this part of Virginia. We had come to experience Colonial Williamsburg, the Revolutionary City!

... quiet town on this Monday evening.
Today we are relaxing at the dock, did a little grocery shopping, and enjoying the good internet service to catch up on correspondences. This is the furthest south we will go in this trip. We wanted to do more but will need to return another year to do that. We are heading back to the Great Wicomico River this afternoon and then onto Annapolis later in the week.
Believe it or not, we made it: We crossed the continent by bike!
We had been counting down the weeks, days, then the miles. Finally, we came around a corner and the road just stopped. You couldn't go any further and we were at the ocean. The journey had finished.
What did we do then? Initially, we had a swim, then we drank a toast with real champagne. There are pics. After that, a shower followed by a slap-up feed at ...

Over the last four days, we haven't done much except try to get healthy. Barbara's been into Colonial Williamsburg, and I actually made it in once. And Barbara got sick. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me start where I left off last Friday.
