We are currently preparing to check out of our 4 day rental here at the Historic Powhatan Resort. I must say it was different but awesome. There are a great deal of amenities here and our unit was completely refurnished. Some things you should know is that this appears to be an old apartment complex that Diamond Head resorts has...

This property was excellent in every respect-beautiful, clean comfortable, fantastic location and a great value. We stayed in a two bed, two bathroom unit that was upstairs with daughter, son-in-law and baby. Perfect!

This is a Diamond owned resort, so you have to understand that when you check in, they will try to sell you a timeshare. Don't worry about that. They will ask you, and you can say no. There is no high pressure message to get you to sign up. They will call your room maybe one more time to try... More

We stayed here for two nights (wish it could have been longer) and everything was fabulous! We arrived at 2:15 pm and had a little bit of a wait to get checked in (maybe 10 minutes at the most). Normal check-in time is 4 pm, but we went as a guest of an elite member so you're supposed to be... More

My husband and I decided to drive down to Williamsburg for the weekend and booked a stay at The Historic Powhatan Resort. We arrived around 8:30 pm and was surprised to find that many other folks were checking in late as well. The young woman at the front desk, Mia Morning, was charming and upgraded us because our reservations made... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here last week and we LOVED everything about this place, don't let the negative reviews fool you or deter you, this is an amazing find, we got a great Groupon deal and could not pass it up, the rooms do not look like rooms at all, they are apartments, for the two of us we...

They are updating all of the units across the complex but we were lucky enough to get an updated unit. We stayed in a second floor two bedroom unit. At first glance it seems really really nice. The kitchen is nicely appointed with new appliances such as the oven, microwave, dishwasher, dual sink with garbage disposal, and fridge. They also... More

This was booked for the night after a wedding, at a historic home in Richmond. We thought it would carry the theme into the night and give them a really luxurious, romantic wedding night. Unfortunately, this place ruined their night instead. It was bad enough that they needed supplies from the Consierge and the desk closed early; as did the... More

This is our second stay at Historic Powhatan. We trade in through Interval International. In the 3 or 4 years since we were there, the units have started being updated. Our unit seemed freshly removated and the rows across from us were in progress. New appliances, granite counters throughout, updated furishings, 3 flat screen TVs and very comfortable beds. We...

Staying at the resort for a week with the family. The rooms are dated and need some upkeep. We could not book a two bedroom so we had four people in a one room unit. The indoor pool and spa are OK but nothing special. The staff uses the pool room as a short cut and constantly walk through to... More
