Very nice stay.

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Everything was as advertised. The room was clean and comfortable. They had activities for adults and kids. The resort location was convenient about 15 - 20 minutes from Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Overall we had a wonderful time.

Nice place to stay

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: The location and roominess of the rooms.
Cons: Check in procedures on Saturday afternoon. Also, not sure if the fireplaces in the rooms work or not. They would be nice to use in the cold months.
Location: Everything is nearby. This is a very centrally location place to stay.
We were very pleased with our room and the location of the Resort. We were close to everything in Williamsburg such as Colonial Williamsburg, The Outlet stores, James Town, Water Country and Busch Gardens. The room we stayed in was a 2 bedroom suite with a King and a Queen size bed. We only stayed for one night but we were wishing we had longer to stay. We didn't get to check out all the recreation that the resort had to offer but it looked as if people were enjoying themselves. We are definitely going to try and stay here again in the future. It's just so convenient. The only negative was the check in procedure. If you don't want to wait in a long line, do not get there at 4pm on a Saturday.

Beats local hotels

Posted Aug 29, 2016
The bedrooms, bathrooms, and living room are spacious. I'll never stay in a hotel again while visiting Williamsburg. Easily sleeps 6 people at an affordable rate. There are so many things to do on property you could plan one whole day and not even leave. The only thing i would've rather checked out a little later than their 10am checkout deadline and check in took a while because it was a busy weekend but they had plenty of staff in the office to get everyone taken care of. The overall condition is good given it has a little age on the buildings. The other guests are quiet and go basically un noticed. Definitely will return.

Lots to do on site

Posted Aug 27, 2016
Pros: Lots to do.
Cons: Boxed cereal still in unit from previous occupant.
Location: Outlets, other shopping, movie theaters, dining, colonial Williamsburg
Kept busy. If you wanted the, you could spend your entire stay there (provided the weather was nice) and not have to spend any more money. If you like sports and the outdoors this is the place for you. Lovely fountains and gardens near the Main Street and access road.

Belle surprise !!!

Posted Aug 24, 2016
Villa spacieuse sur site enchanteur. Personnel vraiment attentioné surtout à la piscine. Pour les gens intéressés par Busch Gardens, des billets moins chers sont vendu au magasin général. Un beau séjour à refaire.

Powhatan review

Posted Aug 21, 2016
Pros: The water temperature in the adult pool was perfect. The grounds and flowers were very well kept. Private parking with each unit.
Cons: Update the units, bedding, decorations, paint color, and especially the furniture!
Location: Very good location! Within 30 minutes of everything we wanted to see and do.
Our unit was very dated, the furniture was horribly uncomfortable! The floors were uneven, and our shower stall seemed to not even be attached to the wall. On the plus side, the adult pool was superb! The kitchen was well stocked, nice big beach towels at the pool, wonderful lounge chairs. Friendly staff, lots of fun activities.

Improve Customer Service

Posted Aug 21, 2016
I waited on hold for about 30 minutes to request an early arrival in the early morning of my scheduled arrival. I was then transferred to the hotel, and they said that they could not guarantee early arrival after being kept on hold for another 30 minutes. I then arrived an hour early to the actual approved time to arrive and waited in line for more than 20 minutes to be served. They told me that my room wasn't ready, but she did locate another room. The room had food crumbs in the living area and it was dirty on the outside. The roads on the resort were in terrible shape. The guards were nice and pleasant. Because my daughter is going to school in the area, I requested to receive other offers when I was checking in and they didn't give me anything...who doesn't respond to future sales requests????
