Verified Reviews of Best Western Historic Area Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Somewhat Disappointing"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I was surprised to learn of the infrequent and only on request housekeeping, but my biggest frustration was that my keys kept getting demagnetized. I've been at the front desk almost daily during my 8 day stay.

"It was clean. It was ready when we got there."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a really nice time with our family there and they put us all on the same floor. It was awesome. five stars.

"Comfortable, Clean, and Convenient."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We usually like to stay at different places when we travel, but this Best Western is so clean, comfortable and conveniently located to all of the attractions that we have decided to stay here for a third time. They also have one of the best free breakfasts. I reserved my room through two different web sites based on availability and price and Steven at the front desk took care of everything when we checked in so that we didn't have to check out and check back in and continued to stay in the same room, which made our stay less complicated. We walked to Cracker Barrel one night for dinner and there are other restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. This Best Western is very close to Colonial Williamsburg and a short drive to Busch Gardens, Yorktown, and Jamestown. We are looking forward to next years stay. Thank you!!

"Mother's Birthday Plan."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Best Western Plus Historic Area Inn has a very nice lobby and restaurant area but the room was dated and old as was the hallways. They need to renovate the hotel and bring it up to modern standards. The pictures in the website do not accurately reflect the room. Great breakfast and location to all the Williamsburg attractions.
