I would stay here again. This chain is one of the older ones, but they keep them quite current. The location is great for traveling as it is right off 81. I did mention at checkout that the carpet did not look well vacuumed. I like the rewards program that the Best Western has. The bed was comfortable and the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 December 2016

Arriving late at night, the small, unimpressive sign on the highway was all that I could see as the hotel sits a distance back from the highway. The motel complex looks like a Bavarian castle, to me anyway, as there are turrets and brick arches everywhere. It certainly doesn't look like your average Best Western and we were delighted by...

i love the Best Western. this hotel was nice and quiet during my stay. the only drawback was the location. i road pass the hotel twice and it was all the way in the rear from the main road. Keep up the good work.

I lived near this hotel for 15 years and didn't realize it was there. When we went to the hotel it took a minute because it is at the END of the driveway hidden away like a gem. It is hard to believe a place could be so quiet and be that close to Midlothian and Robious. The staff were...

On our many road trips this is one of the best hotel/motel we have stayed at. Set back of the main road this is a lovely and quaint motel. Quietly elegant. The staff are extremely professional and friendly. The room was huge with a king bed. Exceptionally clean and well appointed. There was no noticeable noise from anywhere in the...

Always try to stay at Best Western. Service is excellent and very reasonably priced for the most part. The rooms were clean and modern and the breakfast was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this hotel and Best Western in general to those looking for a reasonably priced hotel.

Wonderful experience at this location. Clean, comfortable room, hospitable staff, and an overall magnificent experience. It was located off of a busy highway yet the room was so quiet and peaceful, it felt like an escape to another country. High recommended.

My family and I come to Richmond about twice a year and when we do we stay at the BW Governor's Inn. This hotel is a hidden secret in Richmond. Centrally located, clean, and most importantly reasonably priced. This particular BW has a unique old world charm with the exposed brick and archways. We won't stay anywhere else!
