The condo was was very clean, updated, and nicely decorated. The couch needed to be replaced, very uncomfortable and cushions crushed easily. The kitchen had all the necessary items. They charge for crib and roll-away. They charge for exchange of towels but there is a washer and dryer in the unit so it was easy to wash but I feel... More

My family and I stayed at the Colonies in July and had a good time. The units are spacious and updated with granite counter top kitchens, great appliances, spacious bathrooms and lovely decor. Having the free washer and dryer access was great too. The best part was the outside pool area with the lazy river and water slide. My 4... More

I take a summer getaway every year to Williamsburg, VA and this is my first stay at the Colonies. The property is very nice, clean and very kid friendly. Indoor and outdoor pool with daily activities for all. The rooms are spacious with an updated look. Convenience shopping to outlets and restaurants. Also Busch Gardens and Water Country only 15...

This was our first time at the Colonies. We've been staying the their sister property, Williamsburg Plantation, for the past few years. We chose to stay at the Colonies because it was also pet friendly and the pool was more appealing to our granddaughters. Going into the stay we had read about the parking being limited. We took two vehicles... More

Stayed here over Easter break this past April. The property was very well maintained and the room was huge! The master bathroom was absolutely gorgeous and the room offered everything I could have needed. Location was excellent...right up the road form the outlets and within minutes of many activities and restaurants. My kids loved the indoor pool and tennis courts.

This is the 5th year that we've been coming down here with the family. There's always so much to do. The plantation always has something going on for the kids and adults. Whether it's just going to the pool, taking a walk or bike ride on one of the trails, or spending a day at the outlets. Definitely a great... More

This property would have received a 5, however, it was still under construction and there was very limited parking near our unit. We stayed here for spring break and had a two bedroom apartment. The interior decor was well done. The unit amenities were great, televisions in each bedroom and a huge walk-in shower in the master. The only negative... More

The room was huge and very clean. The pools looked nice but we didn't use them. It is a short drive to most of the area attractions. I would recommend to place to anyone planning a visit to the area. Go to downtown Norfolk and ride the Naval Base Tours trip and go early to visit the Wisconsin Ship tours,... More

We stayed here at the end of June and had a really enjoyable time. We were greeted on arrival like members and the check in couldn't have been smoother. I have read that the sales pitch can be a problem but if you stay firm and tell them you aren't interested they get the message. The rooms are a good... More
