"Enjoyable stay!"
July 2019 NEW
Family friendly place to stay while visiting the Williamsburg area! Lots of space for the price, and possibility to cook with the small kitchens. Walls are thin though, in case you get little ones next door like we did. Kids enjoyed the amenities, and definitely would stay again!

"Christmas Vacation"
December 2018
This was our first Christmas vacation at Powhatan Resort. We loved our cozy 2 bedroom condo. The restaurant/bar on site was amazing. We ventured out to see all the beautiful lights at Christmas Town that was near by. To top off our stay, we woke up to snow on our last day. As a mother it meant a lot to have my grown children with me for a weekend trip. This will now be a family tradition. I have already marked dates on my calendar for next year.

"Nice, but hidden costs."
June 2018
This hotel was very nice, the in-room laundry was a nice addition. Plenty of activities for the kids. They were a pushy with their time-share program. Their resort fee was more expensive than what was listed on my print out from Reserve Williamsburg.

Tip: skip the coserige table--that's where they get pushy about time shares and want all kinds of personal info. Check in was a long process.

We are staying here for a mini vacation. The check in process was very smooth. We were not harassed by timeshare representatives and our room was ready early. Attendants were very nice. Units are dated, but comfortable for the price. They could use a few more chairs in the family room. Basic toiletries in the bathroom as well as supplies in the kitchen. We left our groceries on the counter overnight and in the morning woke up to a complete ant infestation. Most had to be thrown out. There were also ants on the dining room table with no food. Overnight, there were children running unattended around 1:30 AM screaming and running down our front porch area. Completely unacceptable. There doesn’t seem to be any security patrol. General store was closed at 6 PM. All evening activities while we were here were canceled, due to the weather. Pool area was nice but completely packed and staff was inattentive. One employee at pool restaurant. If you are looking for a place to stay that is equivalent to a Hampton Inn then this would be fine. I certainly would not call it a resort. Many upgrades should be made, especially if you want the timeshare buy in.

Second time staying and we'll be back. You don't have to leave the resort. Many things to do right here. Indoor/outdoor pool with drive-in movies, putt putt, fishing etc. Clean with all the comforts of home.

"Remodeled 3 BRM"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 12, 2019 NEW
IT is great to find a 3 BRM unit. These were recently remodeled and have a good amount of space. But there are 3 levels so if stairs are a problem this is not your place. I don't like paying the resort activity fee when other activities cost more money. With tax it is $19 a day and you never use it.

"Not as good as the first stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed August 12, 2019 NEW
This was our second time staying at this resort and it will probably be our last. My family enjoyed all the activities the resort has to offer. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. My room however wasn't very clean upon check in. The cleaning crew didn't clean the bathrooms very well. There was hair and nail clippings on the bathroom floor and there was a dirty washcloth left in the shower from the previous guests. There were ants crawling on the floor in the bathroom as well. I told the front desk about all these issues and they sent someone to spray for the ants but didn't seem to care about the other issues. I could deal with the ants but the other issues made me a little uncomfortable. For a resort that is trying to sell their time shares, you would think they would clean their condos better. The next time we are in the area we will stay at another resort. There are plenty of other resorts in the area.

Good for the most part. Internet service is horrible and I have Verizon. There's plenty to do on the resort grounds. My family enjoyed themselves and never a dull moment. Unit is very well stocked with everything that you'll need for an enjoyable stay. My only drawback was I used a debit card to reserve with only a $2000 day limit. (I wasn't aware) I paid all the bill except for the last night. Front desk wouldn't even give me the keys and allow me to check in and pay the 5th day once I was able to use my card again. I had to wait for reservations to open back up at 3am and have them to remove the last day. It was such an inconvenience. I feel like it was something front desk could have easily handled. Once I was able to utilize my card 24 hours later, we paid for the 5th day but didn't get the same rate. All in all outside of that, it was a wonderful stay.
