Central and comfortablePosted Jan 7, 2015
Pros: The location and the service.
Cons: Three things: The bathroom is a bit small, the bed is too high, and they should restore the shuttle to Busch Gardens (which ran from 2010 to 2013).
Location: It is a very short walk to the historic area. If you attend Colonial Williamsburg's evening programs, then you can be in your room within ten minutes
The Williamsburg Lodge is a very comfortable place to stay if you want to be near Colonial Williamsburg. The service is good and the location can't be beat. It is a bit expensive, but if you want convenience, then you will have to pay for it.

Very nice hotel in a great location.Posted Jan 2, 2015
Hotel is centrally located, very clean, and nicely decorated in colonial style. Shower did not work the second day we were there, was fixed the same day, but no comp to say "sorry you had to wash your hair on your hands and knees with your head under the faucet". Skip the breakfast buffet, very expensive, there are better breakfasts to be had at the local pancake houses for half the cost.

annual anniversary get-awayPosted Jan 2, 2015
Our anniversary tradition is to spend a couple nights at the Williamsburg Lodge. We like all the historical activities, but this year spent lots of time in front of the fireplace reading and relaxing. The only negative was a soiled decorative pillow. We could have called housekeeping to have it replaced, but took it off the bed and forgot to deal with it. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We will stay there again in the future.

Good choice for handicap visitorsPosted Dec 30, 2014
I had scheduled an overnight trip with my family and mother in law to the Williamsburg lodge. The lodge is close to colonial Williamsburg and the upscale Merchants Square area. The grounds are well kept and the staff are all cordial from the doorman to the desk staff. We had arrived around 1230 and had lunch, check in time was no earlier than 4:00 pm. Both my wife and mother in law are handicapped, and both wanted to get into their room before we started out on our day trip walk (Thank God I was able to get rental power chairs for them). The staff worked to get us into our rooms early. And my mother in law commented that she had never stayed in a room that was that big. The only area of improvement that I will offer is that the showers were old, and lacked ventilation fans which resulted in some mold showing up in the tile. Overall good stay..

Corporate WilliamsburgPosted Dec 26, 2014
Hotel is fine but very expensive. Our room wasn't positioned as nicely as most rooms. Perhaps this was because we booked through Expedia? Note than we were there for only one night (Christmas eve) which we could book through Expedia whereas the Williamsburg corporation only allowed stays of two nights minimum.

Ideal locationPosted Oct 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Ideal central location to walk around the Colonial Williamsburg sites as well as visit Merchants Square near William and Mary. The hotel room was fine but the pine wood floors were scratched up and faucet in sink was loose. Because of the bare floors sounds are transmitted between floors and through doors. Bed was comfortable though and there weren't any noisy guests so we slept well. Employees everywhere were very helpful and polite. Would stay again but might request an upper floor.

First and last time we will ever stay in that hotel. The room was so small and the wood floors creaked and cracked so bad. We asked for a mini fridge upon arrival and 4 hrs later we had to call again and still waited another 2 hrs. We woke to service trucks backup beeping and dumpsters as our view.

Watch out for your billPosted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Location, nice rooms, nice bar.
Cons: See above
Location: Historical Williamsburg
So we had a pleasant time at the Williamsburg Lodge - two issues - 1 the spa overcharged my girlfriend for a full hour spa treatment and gave her less than then hour. When mentioned to the manager she did give a rebate on the spa treatment and then at checkout they were very prompt to place a gruitutity on the bill without even asking. 2 at checkout the fron desk added additional charges ie taxes to the bill even though we prepaid with Expedia. Otherwise great place and good service just watch for hidden charges.
