“Ok getaway with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Now this was my first time staying at Patriots Place been to Kingsgate many times so PP was just ok. Wish they had an indoor pool driving over to Kingsgate wasn't bad but staying on property to swim is so much better. Not a fan of the no hot water tank it took to long for water to get hot but other then that I would stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for top floor we was on ground level and we heard every step from the 2nd floor

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend to visit Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Garden. The units were really comfortable and spacious. Beds were clean and really fluffy... The problem we encountered is that our bedroom had an adjoining door to the next unit and their kitchen was right next to our bedroom. You can hear every single detail of conversations from the kitchen next door. Including pots and pans and the faucet. We can also hear the kids running around on the unit above us. It was just very difficult to get back to sleep early in the morning.

But over all when it came to location, it was excellent. About 10 minute drive to Colonial and 15 to Busch Garden. The restaurants are also less than 10 minutes away.

We just finished our 2nd stay at Patriot’s Place in the last 6 months and found it to be an excellent place to stay if visiting Colonial Williamsburg.

Our first stay was in a 1 bedroom “A” unit which was about 750 sq ft. The unit was clean, had a wood burning fireplace, and was well furnished with colonial themed furniture which was fairly new and in very good condition. The full kitchen was somewhat small and well stocked with new small appliances and older large appliances which worked well. There was no pantry but existing dishes could be concentrated to allow for additional storage. Counter space was limited.

Everything was comfortable except the couch which was extremely firm. Only negative was some noise from the connecting “B” unit when occupants were near common door due to no threshold and poor weather stripping.

The second stay was in a 2 bedroom which consisted of the “A” unit and a smaller “B” unit (500 sq ft) with its own full but miniature size kitchen and no counter space. The unit was just as clean and comfortable as before but with comfortable couches on both sides.

The layout of the 2 bedroom unit was somewhat awkward with 2 kitchens and 2 living areas. As a result, there was not a large enough eating or living area for all to gather comfortably if fully occupied.

The resort was well maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located just over a mile from Colonial Williamsburg Visitors Center and not much further from Merchant’s Square at Duke of Gloucester St and Colonial Williamsburg. It is just off Bypass Road and Richmond Road so there are many shops and restaurants within a short distance.

The resort has limited activities but you can go to its sister resort about a mile away for indoor pool, workout facilities, etc. If you have kids that require those activities, you might want to stay at another resort. The resort had tankless water heaters which required about 30+ seconds to get hot water after turning the water on. While an irritation, we adjusted to it quickly. The TVs were tube and some of the picture was cut off by cable formats…..the 2 bedroom unit had 4.

Patriot’s Place seemed more like an apartment complex than a full resort, but we liked this as we usually do not do a lot of resort activities. With our focus on visiting Colonial Williamsburg, we found its location, quietness and comfort hard to beat.

Note: I'm rating this as an RCI week trade, so I can't comment on value vs. a paid stay.

Overall the Patriot Place hit all the right spots for an excellent trade. The people were friendly and helpful, the unit was very large and clean, beds were really comfy and everything worked (a/c, showers, lights, tv's, all kitchen appliances, wi-fi, etc). Our unit had a full kitchen with plenty of appliances and good pots/pans, although we usually only had breakfasts in.

It also is in a perfect location for exploring the Williamsburg area. Lots of very good restaurants and Colonial Williamsburg are within minutes.

You are also only about 50 minutes from Richmond where we visited their excellent art museum on a rainy day.

They did ask us about sitting in on a sales pitch (they use different terms) which we didn't go to, but they were always courteous and not too pushy. Some place are just over the top with this. This wasn't.

There are tons of good restaurants in the area, and more than enough to do to stay occupied for the week.

If visiting the area, we would gladly stay here again.

This property is charming and is great for families. Our unit had 2 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a dining room, a full kitchen and a kitchenette in addition to 2 bathrooms. The kids had their own little unit that was connected to ours! The property was probably not well built, as it is starting to show its age a bit. Wyndam is doing a decent job keeping it up. The grounds were lovely, and the location is excellent. My only real complaint is that we got in very late because of a freak spring snow storm (nearly 11:00 pm). Yet the front desk staff was trying to sell us on the time share at that hour.

We have stayed in many Wyndham owned resorts, and all are very nice. But this one is special. The outside depicts the charm of colonial Williamsburg. The units are named after colonial characters, and it's about a mile away from Colonial Williamsburg. The staff is amazing! We especially liked the layout of our unit. Instead of a large open area as one finds in many resorts, this has small rooms sectioned off from each other. The fireplace was much needed during this first week in March. Bring your own artificial logs. The unit was very clean, everything worked, and the beds were so comfortable. It's just so cozy!! P.S. Be sure to ask the concierge about weekly bus day trip to Washington, DC. There is also a 2 hour cruise of the Norfolk Naval Base only an hour away. For activities and amenities you need to go to a nearby resort.

We have been to this resort for the pass 2 years and have had a wonderful time. It's clean and
very well groomed and the condo is beautifully decorated. Close to all attractions and eateries. We are going back there this year again. My granddaughters had such a good time that she insisted we go back this year. CAN'T WAIT FOR OIUR VACATIONS. The staff at this resort are so nice and very helpful anytime of day. See you all soon!!!!!

Room Tip: We've stayed in one bedroom and two bedroom they were both roomy.
