Highly recommend the Fife and Drum Inn. The location is perfect to visit Colonial Williamsburg or William and Mary. Short walk to either. Lots of restaurants and shopping in a short walk away. The room was very comfortable and clean. The decorations were beautiful. We enjoyed the home cooked breakfast. Would stay here again.

Very close to Colonial Williamsburg and shopping. Virgina was very attentive to special requests. Billy and Sharon are very knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are fantastic and decorated to encourage appreciation of the history of the area.

The owner Sharon was a delight to visit with and very informative. They even have a discount on the purchase of a day pass so buy it from them and save a little. The room was great and the location is fantastic. You can walk to everything. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful. I did not see an elevator so if you can't walk up stairs then you might want to call them before booking.

This was our third visit to the Fife and Drum Inn in the past two years. It is a wonderful place to enjoy all that Williamsburg has to offer. We stayed in the Drummer's Cottage and it was perfect. Our purpose was to drop our son off at the College of William and Mary. I see Fife and Drum becoming our home away from home during the next four years.

"Wonderful experience"

My family recently stayed at the Fife and Drum Inn during William and Mary move-in. The location was perfect. We parked the car after unloading st the dorm and walked back and forth between the dorm and the inn. It was so close! It is equally near to all of the attractions of Colonial Williamsburg. The room was wonderful— clean and comfortable. The always-available lemonade and cookies were appreciated. Breakfast was delicious. Most of all, the hospitality was so appreciated during a stressful time. Virginia was so accommodating and helpful. She made it a great experience for us. Thanks so much we’ll definitely be back!
