Guest reviews for The Colonial Houses - A Colonial Williamsburg Hotel

Couples (1) Family (2)
2 out of 5
The location was exceptional, the room was tiny, and nothing special, the bed was creaky and the mattress sagged in the middle causing one person to sleep dead center and the other to cling to the edge. There was no easy access to plugs for charging. The bathroom was nothing special, was clean but the toilet flushed poorly. The Spa products were nice.

We loved that we were right in Colonial Williamsburg and could walk out on the front door to all the activities. The room though had all of the modern amenities you could ask for - with the exception of wifi, which if we had park passes would have been available to us.
