Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by History buff. Nice Stay, Good Value, Lousy Gym
I enjoyed my business stay at the Holiday Inn. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and attentive. Indoor pool was very nice. Had a hard time sleeping- beds were not very comfortable. Internet access was limited and slow. Gym equipment was worn, rickety, and poor quality. Wmsburg is humid in the summer so a nice workout facility was something I would have enjoyed. Instead, I was off for a run along the busy highway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BetsyGR Excellent service and very comfortable room
The room was very accommodating, clean and properly cooled. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and eager to please. We only had breakfast in the restaurant, but found the food average and over priced for the food offered on the buffet. The total experience was pleasant and we would return to this hotel if we are back in the area.

This hotel was surprisingly very nice, being in an overcrowded area of Williamsburg. It was near everything, it was very clean, and everyone of the staff was very helpful. Plenty of parking area, room came with a microwave and refrigerator, and the bathroom was clean and modern. Yes, i would stay at this hotel again and again. Good value for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Overheated in VA Too hot!
Our stay at the hotel was largely very nice - the lobby is attractive and the room was clean and good sized. It is also well located for the area attractions, and most of the staff were very pleasant. However, I would not stay at this property again for one reason - the a/c unit in the room is an environmentally friendly model that only functions when it can tell you are in the room. As a result of this (and the fact that it was in the high 80s and humid outside), when we arrived just in time to get dressed for dinner out, it was 84 degrees and humid in our room. The sign on the unit says to allow 15 minutes for the unit to bring the room to the temp you set, however half an hour later it was still in the high 70s in the room - we set it for 68. When we returned from dinner, we had to start the whole process again. Then, because it can't tell you're in the room while you are sleeping, in the middle of the night my husband and I both woke up sweating through our sheets. In fact, the temp never once reached the one we had set - the lowest we saw was about 73 degrees. Because of this (and the fact that the front desk person who checked us out was not especially friendly when I asked her to pass along this feedback), we will not return to this property unless we find out they have replaced this system. It is a shame to pay for a stay (and to pay a lot for a holiday inn because of the area it is in) and be uncomfortable for most of the time you are in your room, no matter how nice the rest of the experience may be.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobbygolf Comfortable bed, clean and good housekeeping service.
Our overall experience at the Holiday Inn was excellent. We had requested two beds in the room but the room we were allocated only had one - this was changed immediately. We were also asked if we would like a "quiet room" which would have been nice but the room was, in fact, at the front facing the main road so we did have quite a lot of traffic noise. The young lady who checked us in was a trainee (Maria???) and she was very helpful, polite and did her best to accommodate our needs. Our experience in the bar was a bit dubious as there were several youngish men in there who, I don't think, were residents but had obviously had a bit to drink and were overly "friendly" with my wife which made her feel uncomfortable and so we took our drinks to our room. There was a lot of chat going on between them and the lady behind the bar and so I don't think we were considered that important. Everything else, staff, room and service was fine and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at historic Williamsburg.

Fabulous stay in every way - particularly the warm welcome and helpful hand of the front desk gal Roshell. Upscale, clean, and convenient location as well - highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights while exploring Colonial Williamsburg. Had a very nice stay, thanks to the management and staff. We had an issue with the air conditioner in our room. When it couldn't be repaired they made every possible accommodation for us, including switching us to a new room. We had breakfast each morning in the on-site restaurant (Bistro 515) , it was average, mostly pre-made frozen items and instant eggs. There were many options to choose from though and the staff was very friendly! Within a 5 minute drive to Colonial Williamsburg and surrounding are for restaurant. Overall, a good stay and I would recommend it to a family member or friend.

While traveling with two of our grandchildren we had the pleasure of staying at the Williamsburg Gateway Holiday Inn. Our rooms were comfortable and clean . The pool area was safe and we enjoyed the outdoor sun deck as well. The location was within minutes of all the historic sights offered in the area, The restaurant catered to children where under 12 years old ate free! The food was excellent. Above all else the staff, was so friendly and helpful. They made it their goal to insure to meet our every need.

This hotel was an unexpected 5 star experience. After a long day on the road I was greeted by a very nice, clean hotel which had recently been updated. Further, they upgraded our family to a large suite at no additional costs. Kids ate for free at each meal and the staff was helpful and courteous. We will stay at this location again on our return trips to Williamsburg

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amelia13 Beautifully renovated
This property was recently renovated. It was absolutely beautiful. They actually provide full size pillows instead of those small square pillows most hotels are offering these days. My complaint is that there was only one towel hook and one washcloth hook in the bathroom. Because of this we had to hang towels over furniture and on door knobs. Not ideal for a family. Also, the wireless internet was spotty and slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wrexhamian GOOD LOCATION AND GREAT STAFF SERVICE
This hotel is located about a mile from the centre of the main historic centre of Colonial Williamsburg accessed off a Virginia highway. It is easy to access the Interstate, so quick and easy to find and get out of. The hotel is modern and well designed to a good 3 star standard. The rooms are a decent size and to a good standard, with the usual ensuite bathtub/shower arrangement found in many similar US hotels. Our room had two double beds. The only negative thing I'd say is that there is no great view from the windows and if you're looking for historic atmosphere and setting this is not for you. Our room overlooked a parking area and drive-in fast food outlet although the site was neat and tidy and there were a some trees and greenery in the background. The lobby is modern. There is a smallish indoor pool and exercise room. The breakfast area doubles as a bar and bistro in the evenings but there is a choice of restaurants in the historic centre.
The reception staff are great and the ladies who sort out the breakfast are hard working and considerate.
We had a good one-night stay and slept well!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TXTarheel Good hotel, easy access to the area.
Good Holiday Inn within short drive of any of the area attractions. Only negative was the lighting in the room. Had to turn on every lamp individually and needed them all for any decent lighting. The two overhead lights controlled by switches entering the room were all but worthless, they gave me enough light upon entering a dark room to at least find the lamps in the corners.

The hotel was close to Colonial Williamsburg and resturants were just down the road. The room was nice. I would have liked an extra luggage stand and a bigger closet with more hangers. We would stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless in Williamsburg They Host Bus Trip Customers
During my stay three bus loads of kids were hosted at this Holiday Inn - must have been a class trip. The kids ranged from 10-12 years of age. Their rooms were on my floor and the floor above me. They ran the halls screaming, yelling and slamming doors. This continued into the late evening. When 6:30 AM arrived - it started all over again. I complained to the front desk several times. They told me they were aware of it from other guests complaining and were looking for the group chaperones. Upon my check out the next day all the front desk could say was that they were "sorry". I told them that "sorry" wasn't going to get me back my lost sleep - which I needed in order to make my 200 mile drive back home.

We travel to Williamsburg usually in spring and Fall, and each time look forward to staying at Holiday Inn. And each time we are not disappointed and have come to appreciate the same service and accommodations as previously enjoyed.

Everyone at the hotel was very willing to answer questions and give advice on the area. The young lady on the front desk at night was especially accommodating and friendly.
The Wine in the restaurant was a little pricey $8 glass for the house Chardonnay. (value was $4.00 tops)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pcc2014 Wish I'd found this hotel before graduation!
Of all the hotels I've stayed in while visiting my child at the College of William & Mary over the last 4 years, this Holiday Inn is by far the best. Welcoming, helpful, caring staff, pleasant lobby, clean rooms and public places make this Holiday Inn a place I'd like to stay again.
