Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites Review
About Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites
The Williamsburg Woodlands, an official Colonial Williamsburg property, is a gem of a find for the family on a budget. The Woodlands shoulders the Visitor Center so isn't as close to the Historic Area as the Williamsburg Inn, Williamsburg Lodge or the Colonial Guesthouses, but no matter. Complimentary shuttles leave the Visitor Center frequently from morning into evening making it a breeze to get from the Woodlands to the colonial past. Along with the free shuttle, many more wonderful freebies illuminate your stay: internet, a hot continental breakfast, a microwave and fridge in the junior suites (a refrigerator can be requested at no extra charge in the standard rooms), a well equipped fitness room, an outdoor pool and ample parking are all free. Feed them a few quarters and the coin operated laundry machines are all yours.
The outdoor play area for the kids is a bit dated, but don't mention it and I bet the kids won't even notice. The 18-hole miniature golf course is the most popular activity at the Woodlands -- clubs go fast. A yesteryear shuffle board game, paddle tennis and tetherball are just waiting to show today's generation how to have a blast without a Wii. Surrounded by pines, the Woodlands has a slightly rustic, 1950's vibe, but don't be fooled, the property was built in 2001 and is sparkling clean with a friendly atmosphere.
Falling into the "so worth it" category: Woodland guests can use the wonderful fitness room and three pools serving the Williamsburg Inn and Williamsburg Lodge for a day rate of just $25 per family.
