"Try this hotel!"
If you need a hotel close to Greatwolf Lodge, you must try the Holiday Inn Express. This hotel was very clean and the price was good. The staff made you feel welcome and they were very professional. The breakfast area was a little small, but the food options were good. the exercise room and pool area was small, but you could still get a good workout. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a quick getaway or overnight stay. I would book this hotel again in the future.

"Good place for family to stay."
We stayed with our three kids. We had a cot in the room. My 13 year old son said the cot was uncomfortable (he could feel springs) but he did sleep through the night. The hotel is clean and updated. It's 8 miles from Water Country USA but the trip from there to the hotel was quick and easy. They have a great continental breakfast. They, were however understaffed on that Friday morning. There was one girl at the desk who was extremely busy and the staff person in the breakfast area seemed overwhelmed. As we were checking out another staff person was at the front desk but they clearly needed two earlier.

"Nice hotel near Busch Gardens"
Booked this hotel only a couple of days before arrival. Decently priced at ~$142 per night. Easy drive to Busch Gardens and the hotel's location was somewhat off the beaten path, a real advantage in my book. Breakfast was average and incredibly crowded, especially Saturday morning. Not nearly enough space in the eating area. We went down early and got food to take back to the room. Overall, good place to stay; very clean and modern with a somewhat out-of-the-way and quiet location. Would definitely stay there again.

"OK stay. Friendly staff."
We stayed here for one night on out trip to Jamestown and Williamsburg. The location is good and easily accessible from the major roads in and around Williamsburg. The rooms are ok and fairly clean. The pool was quite cloudy and could have used some fresh water. The lady at the front desk was able to give us some good advice as to where to eat nearby and how to get around. Very friendly. The beds are good and we had a quiet stay. But as is the case in all hotels in this category the breakfast 'is what it is'- styrofoam plates, plastic cutlery and plastic cups- not very eco- friendly.

"Great hotel, close to everything."
Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Great location, clean and good variety for breakfast. It can get hectic especially around 9-9:30am. Front desk staff and manager were very friendly and helpful. We got there a few hours before check in time and they were kind enough to get us a room before check-in time. Love the overall modern look and feel of the hotel. The water cool theme was a great choice for the interior design. My kids loved the pool. Wished there was some weights in the gym room. Overall, great stay and would recommend.

"Nice hotel, convenient location"
The hotel was very nice, well maintained and lovely staff. The full breakfast was an additional plus we didn't expect. It's also convenient to get to multiple Williamsburg attractions from this location with easy access to the highway. When searching I found this location to be highly rated with great reviews and we weren't disappointed!

"Very satisfied"
We had a great room, the breakfast was fantastic. The one frustration was a $25 charge for a cot, when they initially told me it was $10, and then when I checked out and asked about whether I needed to sign something for the cot charge, they told me there wouldn't be one. So besides that confusion(and frustration), it was impeccable!

"Great hotel for a Busch Gardens Trip"
My family and I stayed at the HIE and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very nice as was the entire hotel. The continental breakfast was full of variety and was delicious. My two sons had a wonderful time swimming in the pool early on Saturday morning before a big day at Busch Gardens. The trip between the hotel and BG was about 10 - 15 minutes. I would definitely stay here again.

"Cinnamon rolls and a pancake printer"
Breakfast was very good and a little unusual. They had very good, fresh warm cinnamon rolls kept in a special warmer. They suggested we take a couple with us and we did. Rather than the waffle maker that has become common in similar hotels, they had a machine that looks somewhat like a desktop printer that makes pancakes. You push one button and a couple of minutes later two freshly-made pancakes roll out of the end. They were very good. The service was great and everything was immaculate. Coffee was available at all times. The gym was small, but clean and adequate for a maintenance workout. Would stay there again any time.

"Everything You Would Expect In A Holiday Inn"
We (a family of 4) had a great experience at this hotel. I can say I was pleasantly surprised. We usually choose Comfort Inn to stay in on our trips but at the time this Holiday Inn was rated 99% , I chose to book a room. The hotel is close to numerous locations, you don't have to travel too far out of the way for a good meal. The breakfast at the hotel was nice, much more available than other hotels. The staff kept the breakfast area stocked well, during a busy hour. We went early to breakfast prior to heading to Busch Gardens. It was a great place to stay and we WILL stay again. The indoor pool was fantastic for swimming, it is open early and closes late. We only had 1 issue, our fridge didn't work when we first checked in, but the staff was so quick to remedy the situation, I was shocked. I have NEVER had such fantastic service at a hotel. The staff was friendly, the hotel was CLEAN as it would be. I loved the decor, such a refreshment from normal stuffy hotel decor.

"Almost what I have come to expect from HIX"
The room was very well done with the exception of the King Bed which I found to be a bit hard for my taste. Other than that I have no complaints about the room from their new high tech Near Field keys to the beautifully done bathroom. Staff was helpful even when under stress. The breakfast was rather basic for my taste, but it was free (There's an iHop on the other side of the hiway). Other than the bed, I wouldn't complain about anything.

"Happy!"
First of all, yes it is bit pricier than most of the other hotels that's actually closer to Colonial Williamsburg. But I chose this hotel over others because of all the good reviews; and it did not disappoint me other than one thing with the bathroom. Friendly staff, great breakfast, and cozy and nice room was definitely what most of us are looking for. However, the bathroom had a couple of issues. The bathtub had slow drainage. I think that's why the tub might have had some scum on the tub. That was a bit disappointing. Nevertheless, it's still close from Colonial Williamsburg--a 10-minute drive is doable.

"Modern & quiet"
Overall look and feel of the hotel is a good value for your money. Modern, new decor in grey and chrome. Decent breakfast. Indoor pool is a plus. Not far from the highway. However, I would have preferred to stay closer to Colonial Williamsburg and walking distance to shops/restaurants. I also found urine stains on the toilet seat and a grey hair in the bathroom. It looked like the room had not been used since last month, because the clocks had not been changed to account for Daylight Savings Time. I also wish I had ordered a king size bed because we were only a total of 2 travelers. I found the two beds to be cumbersome and rather small. Also, I prefer shower gel instead of bar soap because there is no soap dish. Plus, the first person who greeted us when checking in at night seemed inattentive and grumpy. Apart from these minor details, it's fine for a one-night stay. It might even exceed your expectations if you're used to cheap motels. If I had to do it again, I'd splurge a little on something a bit more high-end for me and my boyfriend.

The room is a perfect size and all new furniture. Stayed only 2 nights for a trip to Busch Gardens. The location is perfect for the parks and the outlet mall. Only issue is with the breakfast. They start putting things away an hour before the end time which is annoying. Also, they kept running out of items (milk, yogurt, eggs).

Overall we had a good night there. It was a very clean and new hotel. Service was very good. The only issue we had was that there seemed to be a leak above us in our bathroom. The drywall in the ceiling was bubbled down and our floor was wet overnight. This really did not affect our one night there but it could have been an issue if we stayed longer.
