We are owners that have been coming here for several years. Location is close to Williamsburg & shopping. The grounds are beautiful. Have never had any issues, however rooms are starting to get run down. When we first started coming here rooms were great, however last couple times we were not impressed. The rooms are just starting to look well... More

Upon arrival at the Powhatan Resort it should be noted that the grounds are expansive and there is plenty of space to take walks and ride bikes. Our problems with check in began with the concierge trying to schedule us for an 8:30 am Sunday session on buying into the time share at the resort. It was 11:00 pm and... More

First, customer service HORRIBLE. The location is beautiful, but customer service is horrible. On arrival they was trying to persuade us to attend their timeshare. After declining several times the salesman was still pushing for us to attend! Second, the rooms are dated tv's( tube 480), master bedroom 19"TV(tube box) the volume didn't work they was unable to fix or... More

I'll apologize in advance, this review will be long. But I feel it's necessary to let people know what they might be getting if you are considering booking at the Historic Powhatan Resort. We decided to take a trip for our daughter's birthday. After looking all around Williamsburg, and since we only had about a month left, we ended up... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend getaway. We were very pleased with the room. It was clean and spacious. Ours had a full kitchen, which is great if you want to cook instead of going out to eat all the time. This should help with saving some money, when we bring the whole family on the next trip....

We arrived around 10 pm. When I entered the lobby, 3 people were working reservations and only 1 was working with a guest. The other 2 ignored me. When I was finally called forward, I gave my name. He found my reservation, said I was a club member (I'm not but rented through a club member) and informed me that... More

This resort has been a great place to come for the past decade or more. It is still a great place but like all older resorts things change and visitors need to know. The first new thing is that if you are not a Diamond owner ( and maybe if you are) there has been a $10 fee per night... More

We checked into the resort around 10:45 pm on Friday evening and after a 30 minute plus wait we finally had our room keys and were on our way. After driving down our poorly lit street and a couple of u turns later we were finally able to see the poorly placed numbers on our units, as we approached our... More

First of all, we stayed at this resort due to limited choices as part of a Diamond Sampler package that we never should have purchased. We had to go through the mandatory "update" sales presentation that is usually a painful ordeal due to the pressure the reps usually put on and that half the time they do not speak understandable...

We had a wonderful stay. Very restful, quiet stay! Lots of nice amenities. I would have given it 5 stars except for one very annoying thing. Before we ever left to come here twice we received calls at our home pressuring us to go on a timeshare presentation. When we checked in we were pressured again. Not long after we... More
