I was dropping my son off at school, and for a change wanted to stay walking distance to the main sites. The hotel is one block off DoG street and a few hundred feet from the Wren building. Could not be more central to W&M or Colonial Wmsbg. You could actually visit by train without needing a car. The hotel is not quite a B&B as the owner Billy lives a few blocks away, but the 7 or 8 room purpose built facility certainly has that feel. It was perfect for me.
One caution: These are individually planned and decorated rooms and not all that large. No swimming pool and the TVs are small. Better for folks like me or couples than it might be if you have younger children.

I arrived early by train and asked for my room to be ready in an hour and they were very accommodating and even carried my bag up the stairs when I arrived. The manager came himself to plug in my tv cable when I said it was missing and the cleaning staff was efficient and never moved my things or disturbed me whe I was in the room. Breakfast was both cold and hot and had healthy choices and was elf serve in a clean comfortable dining area. I left early and came back late and was never asked where I was or troubled by locked doors or unsafe environs as there was always someone at the desk. At night the hotel was quiet and well heated, the bedclothes new and not overly perfumed or synthetic, and I slept well. The bathroom had old fixtures but was clean and well-lit, and plenty of hot water.
My new husband and I spent our honeymoon weekend there. Mr. Ike, the owner was so nice and helpful. He showed us around and then to our room. It was clean, beautiful and soooo comfortable. Would certainly recommend to anyone. Morning breakfast was delicious.
Our party consisted of grandparents and our daughter and 3 children and we thought this a great family hotel close to Colonial Williamsburg. Breakfasts were substantial and the rooms were spacious. Evening activities were also provided for children. Lovely pool and splash pad which was welcome after a long day walking around in the heat. The shuttle buses worked well and you never had to wait longer than 10 minutes. I would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Exactly what I was looking for. Room was a great price, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Shower was amazing. The ONLY complaint I had is my room did not have a mini fridge to store items in, which might have been my mistake for assuming all hotel rooms have one!
