Verified Reviews of Best Western Williamsburg Historic District

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Terrible. Entire floor and room smelled of mildew and needed a deep cleaning."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Terrible. Overpowering mildew smell, filthy tub, delaminated bathroom door, stains on carpet, ice machine didn't work, inadequate room and hallway dehumidifiers for the moisture and mildew smell …empty hotel room doors were propped open. The room was uninhabitable and needed a deep cleaning. Only good thing was the bed and pillows. It was a mess.
