Hotels, Motels and B&B’s

Many of you know Betz Williams of Colonial Travel Agency who has long served the junior sailing community with travel services.  She is in touch with the larger commercial hotels, including the Tides Inn, Comfort Inn,  and Hampton Inn and later at the more distant hotels in Williamsburg and near the Richmond Airport.  She can assist you with reservations in those hotels.  Visit and click on “Betz Sailing”, or email Betz at or call her at 803-802-1690.  You may handle your own reservations at the Holiday Inn and smaller hotels, Christchurch School and B&Bs.

If the listed hotels and motels in the immediate area fill up, those registrants willing to commute about 60 minutes to the regatta site should focus on motels at the Richmond Airport, sometimes referred to as “Sandston,” and the motels in Williamsburg, Virginia, a major tourist destination with hundreds of rooms. Families and siblings with less interest in sailing may prefer the many attractions in Williamsburg, including Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens.
