Williamsburg Hotels – How to Pick the Right One

Williamsburg Lodge

With more than 80 Williamsburg Hotels, picking just the right one for your perfect vacation can be overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help narrow your choices and make the process easier.

The first thing you will want to think about is how much you want to spend.  Williamsburg has plenty of great limited service hotels for those traveling on a budget as well as full service resorts like Kingsmill and the Williamsburg Inn, both of which have hosted presidents and celebrities.

Williamsburg Hotel Room

Hotel Rooms at Best Western are a great value.

If you want to keep your cost down a hotel will be your least expensive option.  You should expect a clean comfortable hotel room, in most cases free breakfast, free internet and a pool.  While you sacrifice space by staying in a single room, how much time are you planning to spend in the room anyway?  Those precious dollars may be spent on Busch Gardens Quick Que to move you to the front of the line on popular rides.  Examples of limited service Williamsburg Hotels include Days Hotel Busch Gardens Area, Holiday Inn Express and the Colonial Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel.

The next important decision is how much space you need.  There are a number of condo and timeshare style properties that can be super convenient, especially if you are traveling with kids.  One bedroom units usually have a bedroom and sofa bed in the living room, with two bedroom units having two separated bedrooms and usually two bathrooms as well as the sofa bed.  Most come with a full kitchen too, so you may not have to eat out every meal (but who wants to cook on vacation?!)

Kings Creek Williamsburg

Williamsburg Condos offer additional space.

Condo units can be a real value; many are more expensive than a single hotel room, but less than the cost of renting two separate rooms.  The downside is they will not include free breakfast and in most cases you will also have to pay extra for amenities like high speed internet.  They also tend to have great pools and a few kids activities like mini golf, but not the full scale amenities of a resort like fine dining, room service, golf, spa etc.  Examples of condo style Williamsburg Hotels include Powhatan Plantation, Greensprings Plantation and Kings Creek Plantation.   TIP:  If you don’t mind spending two hours on a timeshare tour you can save on your room and get $150 in free tickets.  Click here now to learn more about discounts for taking timeshare tours.
