Hotels near Williamsburg and Jamestown?

Recommended Posts

We just stayed here: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/phfsh-springhill-suites-williamsburg/


Indoor pool, very family friendly, pool on first floor with nice jacuzzi, large breakfast area with make-your-own waffles, eggs, etc., in addition to yogurt, fruit, bagels, and coffee. With fridges/microwaves in your room, you can fix sandwiches/salads/etc. for one of your meals and not have to eat out. Olive Garden is just up the road. We'd definitely stay there again.

We went recently and spent one night at the Marriot Fords Colony:



Beautiful room with full kitchen which is a plus for us since ds6 has multiple food allergies.


and another night at Great Wolf Lodge



The kids and dh love the waterpark, the kids also love the rooms with the bunk beds.

We are looking at going to the Spring Homeschool Days for Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown/Yorktown.

Has anyone gone? Where did you stay? It would be dh, ds8 and myself. An indoor pool would be GREAT but the price of the hotel has to be a consideration.



We went to Colonial Williamsburg three years ago, and did Homeschool

Days at Jamestown in 9/09. The first time, we stayed at SpringHill Suites. It was very nice, free breakfast, indoor pool. The second time, it was a spur of the moment trip, just me and my kids, and I was looking for cheap. We stayed at Quality Inn. It looks like they only have an outdoor pool (I guess we didn't swim). They also have a free breakfast. The hotel was a little older but I was happy enough with it. I felt safe and clean, and I'm not sure which was more important!


I recommend looking at traveler reviews at TripAdvisor, and don't forget the bed bug registry!


I was overwhelmed by the possibilities of Colonial Williamsburg. If I were to go again, I would have to plan out ahead of time what we wanted to do. And a word of warning--the cost of food is $$$ inside the grounds.


We enjoyed Jamestown. There was a replica Indian village, fort, ships, and a museum with a great gift shop. It was even rainy/steamy that day (90s and drizzle in September!), but it didn't dampen our visit. :D The entire Jamestown site that you will visit is not the original. The actual site is right next door, and they have an ongoing archaeological dig. I'm not sure how much of this is open to the public, but if you think your ds might be interested in seeing the site, you can google for more info.


The prices during hs week were terrific. It was not crowded at all, just very nice, great time to go.

We stayed at Woodlands Hotel and Suites. We walked over to Colonial Williamsburg every morning during last year's spring homeschool week. There is a walkway from the hotel. They also had a free breakfast. It snowed last year so we were usually freezing and ready to ride the free shuttle back to our hotel door last year. Very convenient location and inexpensive.
