Best Western Plus Governor's Inn
Ranked #14 of 82 Hotels in Richmond
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2011

We recently stayed at a Best Western Plus in Charlottesville and had a wonderful experience. Based on that, we chose the Best Western Plus Governor's Inn when we had to travel to Midlothian.

The hotel's appearance reminded me of Williamsburg -- old brick colonial, etc -- and you could tell the building itself is older. The rooms and the interior of the hotel, however, are great. New bathrooms, VERY comfortable beds. My only wish? A thick fluffy comforter (instead of a thinner blanket and bedspread) like we had in Charlottesville.

Breakfast was good -- waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits (yum!). I didn't see fresh fruit, but it could have been hidden behind everyone else getting breakfast!

Overall, a great deal for the money!

Room Tip: The "other" building has corner rooms that appear to have a rounded "bay window/nook...

This was a great spot to stay a few nights. Walking distance to a few restaurants (not on the property), and to some really neat shops (including a hobby shop), not to mention the Mall just up the street.
About the hotel: The staff was very polite and helpful. They even gave me a free map. There were a lot of people staying the first night but not the second night. The rooms won’t fancy, but nice and VERY CLEAN! For convince, value, and cleanliness a definite thumbs up.

Let me start off by saying this trip to Richmond was completely last minute. My father passed away on Wednesday, October 26th. Myself, sister, and Aunt stayed at this BW from October 27 - November 2nd. Joe and his staff were completely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about them. For an older hotel (recently upgraded) I had my doubts. The room was clean, breakfast was excellent, and the staff members were caring and very professional. This was a great experience during the worst time of my life.

Thank you for the bottom of my heart, Steve from Arkansas

Room Tip: The 3rd floor was non-smoking. They allowed us to switch rooms twice ... even price matched our rat...

My wife and I recently went on a vacation to see a part of American history. Our goal was to see Jamestown/Williamsburg, Monticello, Mt Vernon, and historic Richmond. Little did we know that the hotel we picked - BEST WESTERN PLUS Governor's Inn – turned out to be the perfect hotel located at the perfect location for our trip. Aside from the ease of access to all our locations, the hotel staffs made us feel at home. Speaking of location, there are lots of great restaurants nearby (be sure to try Tripps for steaks and seafood), and shopping for all those items you don’t need.
I rate this hotel FIVE STARS for value. It’s not the Ritz, but for the price we paid, we were completely satisfied.

I thought the staff was very nice and helpful. My Room was 2 queens. The rugs and bed covers were clean but they do do need to replaced soon. There were qulte a few scratches and dents on the furniture and the walls. My room was very quiet and we heard no one else in the halls. I would stay there again if it were a very attractive rate.

The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way. The breakfast was small, but good. The elevators were a tad on the slow side, however that is not really something to complain about. Very quiet, and peaceful. The hotel was also very clean. The employees and manager are extremely pleasent, and make your stay enjoyable. Many restaurants are available with just a short drive. It is a good value for you and your family if you want to be close to Richmond, but not stay directly in the city.

Numerous trips are made throughout the year to a physician in the Midlothian area for my husband, and each time we stay at The Governor's Inn. The staff is very caring, very accommodating, and assists with any needs we might have. As an added bonus, the rooms are quite large and are very clean. We enjoy the breakfasts, as well.

I cannot express my thanks to the staff enough, especially to Joe, the manager, and to Mary Anna, who is absolutely wonderful to my husband and me. Their length of service at The Governor's Inn attests to how this hotel is run and how well the staff is respected.

My husband and I highly recommend this Best Western and confidently give it an "Excellent" rating.
