Where is a conveniet place to stay when visiting Williamsburg?

I haven't been there in 20 years and want to take my family over the Thanksgiving holidays. I don't really have a budget for a room but some where between $80.00-$125.00 per night is where I want to be.

We will need two rooms and would like to be within 10-20 minutes of Williamsburg.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Patrick Henry or the Ramada that is next door to the Patrick Henry.

I would also recommend the Patrick Henry. It literally across the street from Colonial Williamsburg, but much much less expensive than staying in one of the colonial Williamsburg hotels. It's an ordinary, perfectly nice motel, with a terrific location.

I agree with the PH...nothing palatial but a perfectly acceptable (IMO) place to stay and within minutes (easy walking) to the W-Burg historical area..right across the road from one of the W-Burg horse pastures.

Also check into the Williamsburg Hospitality House. It's directly across the street from Wm and Mary and two blocks from the restored area. It's also within walking distance of restaurants, deli's and convenience shops. A shopping center with a grocery, drugstore, bookstore, etc. is a two minute drive.

If the Hospitality House is within walking distance of restaurants, etc., it might be a better spot than the PH.

Patrick Henry, Ramada, nearby Sheraton 4 Points, and Hospitality House all good choices, especially if you want to walk to C.W. and some dining locations.

But since you stated "within 10-20 minutes", I assume you'll have a car? If so, consider chain hotels on Bypass Road, on Richmond Rd (but no further up than around 3500 Richmond Rd) You'll have a number of local and chain restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, and you'll still only be 5-10 minutes from CW.

Tip: if traveling east on Bypass road and going to CW, do NOT turn Rt onto Rt 132 as signs direct you to get to CW. Instead, continue straight on Bypass and make a right about 500' after the traffic light into "Cascades" then the first left, which takes you directly to CW visitor parking lots.
