There are tons of places to stay in and around the Williamsburg area, and there are many price options too (scroll down for our latest cheap hotel secrets).

Here are just a few Colonial Williamsburg hotels to give you an idea of what you'll spend:

Do you stop at rest stops? You may want to now. While you're there, be sure to pick up these publications (also available in restaurants, hotels and attractions in the greater Williamsburg/Virginia area):
Room$aver Traveler Discount Guide
VA-DC-MD-West VA-DE Travel Coupons (travelcoupons.com)
Published monthly, they're free and they feature coupons for Colonial Williamsburg hotels. And the prices are good! They claim to have better discounts than online sites too. Here's a sample of hotels that are within a few miles of both Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens Williamsburg:
Quality Inn Kingsmill - coupon is good for 10% off the regular room rate (good for 1-4 people) -- they offer free breakfast, a pool and game room
Howard Johnson Williamsburg - coupon good for $69 room Sun-Thurs. (1-5 people) -- includes indoor pool, hot buffet breakfast, complimentary local calls (they're pet-friendly too!)
**Great Deal!***Travelodge King William - $55 (1-2 people - weekends/holidays higher) -- kids under 17 FREE, free continental breakfast, outdoor pool PLUS they offer discount tickets for Busch Gardens Williamsburg ($6 off) and Colonial Williamsburg!
Do these rates sound too good to be true? There's a few catches: they're only good for walk-ins (no booking ahead) so you run the risk of finding a "no vacancy" sign, especially during the summer. And some coupons aren't good on holidays and weekends, or may have weekend surcharges (like an extra $10 per day).
But if you're trying to save money and don't have to plan ahead, they can help you save big on Colonial Williamsburg hotels!
***Don't forget! One way to get free nights at hotels is to join a hotel loyalty program. By sticking with one chain, you'll earn points that can get you free nights in the long run. One example is Best Western.
