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.
