The staff are very friendly from the moment you walk in. The resort is currently under construction so there is a bit of noise. We started in a two bedroom suite which was very roomy. It had very bright and cheery decor. The resort is located across the road from Busch Gardens so you can see the taller coasters from... More

We stayed here and realized immediately why it is called Parkside. It is literally right beside Busch Gardens. You could see and hear the people as they zoomed on the roller coaster. My kids were in amusement park heaven. The noise was never so loud that it was disturbing. You could just hear it if you were on the balcony.... More

Visited Parkside Resort through Bluegreen in April 2013. If you have children with you, be sure to get a ground floor so they can move around freely. This is the noisiest resort we have ever stayed in. You can hear all kinds of noises from other rooms...doors closing, kitchen drawers opening/closing (when tv is off), people on the floor above...

We stayed here through BlueGreen. The resort is very nice and very clean. We were only in town for 2 nights so didn't have a chance to look at all the extras they offer. The front desk staff was amazing and very courteous. The resort is located right across the street from Busch Gardens. Its central to most places you... More

We stayed here through BlueGreen and it was a good choice. We have found a few if the newer BG properties in transition, and this is one if them. You can see the great changes and expansion moving forward. Parkside is close to all Williamsburg attractions. Although a very short drive away from Colonial Williamsburg, it didn't seem to be...

This resort is very nice but still under construction. The facilities are very clean and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful with ideas on how to make the best of our time Williamsburg. We had the 1 bedroom unit with a gas fireplace and a balcony overlooking a golf course. However, the couch was not the most comfortable but... More

Parkside resort is a BlueGreen property. It was close enough to Colonial Williamsburg (we had our own car to drive around). It was right across from Busch Gardens AND a loud train track which we heard in the middle of the night. Clean rooms but the beds are always terrible. Don't count on having a great bed ever at a...

Just got back from 3 days at the Parkside Resort and thoroughly enjoyed the property. 1 bedroom unit had TWO bathrooms, so I got my own while dear hubby had his!! Unit was clean, nicely decorated and had a gas fireplace. Full kitchen was well supplied and the resort's location would have been perfect had we been going to Busch... More

This resort is new, beautiful two bedrooms, deck, living room, full kitchen and 2 bedrooms. Comfortable beds and linens, washer dryer always a plus. The pool area is interesting and fun with a slide, some fountains, in a lazy river shape and large so lots of deck space. While you can see Busch Gardens from your front door (and fun... More

I recently stayed here as part of a DVC/RCI exchange and was pleasantly surprised with the resort. We arrived into town early on our check in day and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. They knew us by name from the minute we arrived and knew exactly what time our room would be ready (about 2 hours earlier than... More
