“Pass on Patriot's Place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2008

Stayed here 1 week for our 30th wedding anniversary.

Previously toured and purchased Wyndham timeshare points at Bonnet Creek in Florida.
Problems:
This location is very lacking. It is no different than going to a regular hotel because it lacks all the facilities the other Wyndham properties tend to have. Sales staff were pushy about attending a "welcome meeting" to get our gift basket. When asked if a sales presentation would occur they said yes. No thanks!

No internet, including wifi. Told to go over to the Kingsgate or Governor's Green. No gym facilities. Pool was closed. Meanwhile if we had stayed at the other two Wyndham properties we would have had all the usual amenities...as their pools were open, they also had large activity centers, walkways, mini golf, etc etc

Patriot's Place consists of multiple 2-story buildings with different exteriors - so it resembles a colonial village. We had a studio, and it was quite small (compared to the Marriott resort studios). Our studio had 2 problems - the dvd player wasn't hooked up/working and the hot/cold water was switched in the bathtub, so the first night there we thought we had no hot water in the bathtub. There is no way we were the first people who stayed in this unit - so the management had to have had previous reports of the problem, yet it was never addressed.

As previous commentor's noted: the entrance sign is tiny and would be bypassed easily. Watch for the Ramada 1776 sign as they share the property.

Conclusion:
Our biggest disappointment was the lack of faciilities. We ended up going over to the Kingsgate daily to use the gym and the internet. We also noticed the other Wyndham locations are more spacious properties and are more upscale. I wouldn't return to this property again...would hold out for the Governor's Green (nicest looking) or the Kingsgate (best fitness room)

Well, my wife and I recently returned home after another wonderful vacation in Williamsburg, and our new "2nd home", Patriots Place. We just love the place. When we first arrived, we were given a condo in the older section, and had some noise issues with a neighbor(believe me, if we complain and we did, then there was a hell of a lot of noise), we complained to the desk, and voila! they moved us down the road a piece, and into a newer condo. It was very unexpected, and they treated us marvelously. Thanks and kudos to girls at the desk.

Our vacation was wonderful. Here's a brief synopsis: we visited Historic Jamestown, Jamestown Settlement; Yorktown Riverfront, Old Towne and Battlefield site; Appomattox, Petersburg and Kill Devil Hill's in the Outer Banks. When we visited last year, it was our honeymoon, and we never imagined that we could have more fun. We were wrong!!!! Also, while in Yorktown, we took a sail on the S/V SERENITY, located in the harbor. Wow!!!! There is so much to do in this area, and the accomodations at Patriots Place made our trip much more enjoyable. There is a lot of renovation going on at Patriots Place, but we were not bothered by noise from the construction, at all.

Williamsburg and Patriots Place is going to be our annual vacation retreat. There is so much to do and see and we haven't even scratched the surface. We highly recommend Patriots Place to everyone. There is not a lot to do for families with small children, but Kingsgate and Governor's Green are just up the road. Thanks again to the wonderful folks at Patriots Place!!!!!!

  • Liked — Cleanliness and quality of service from staff.
  • Disliked — Noise in first condo. Problem rectified by staff, no problem.

We stayed for a long weekend while going to Busch Gardens and Howl-O-Scream, we had a great stay here. Units were great for a family of 4, only one bathroom but it was huge with lots of storeage space. I do not think our unit had been remodeled yet but they were working on many of them in the area while we were there. It was a little dated, but clean. We even used the fireplace, kids loved sleeping on the sofa bed in front of the fire. SIx mile drive to Busch Gardens and lots of resturants very close by.

The Wyndham is a average condo resort condo unit from what we've seen. Rooms a little small, but furnishings and kitchen served it's purpose. Clean and service friendly and helpful. Walls thin - we could hear a baby next door through the night. Location good - in the center of all major attractions - Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, and within 15 minutes for Jamestowna nd Yorktown. Right on main shopping and restuarent strip but yet set back and private. Pool was clean and well supervised. While the geease a nice to look at, they crap all over - so watch your step when walking on the lawns. We were using a friends condo, and never got pressured to purchase on of our own.

We booked a week stay at this resort & we had a great VA vacation. Only problem was, we had a room on the main level & you're able to hear everything next door & above you as well! Plus, it needs to be renovated!!! Other than those things, it was a nice relaxing vacation.

I stayed at Patriots Place the week of 7/26-8/2 2008. I had booked this using a friends time share account and was staying as a guest under their name. We arrived and had no problems at all getting checked in. The staff were very courteous and helpful during the process, giving us directions to our room, and a gift bag and coupon books. Also they gave us a coupon for Busch Gardens tickets which was definitley a plus saving $15 dollars a ticket. We were not solicited at anytime to buy a time share. Most likely because we're only 21, and most time shares require you to be 25 years old.

The room we stayed in was a studio size apartment. It had a Queen size bed, and a little kitchen that included an oven a two burner stove a mini fridge and microwave. All of which seemed clean and in really great shape. The kitchen had all necessary utensils and dish ware. The room over all seemed pretty cleaned and looked as if it had been renovated in the past year. The bathroom was really clean and had a very large sink and mirror. The outlet in the bathroom was broken, and you could not use their hair dryer or plug in a curling/flat iron if you needed to. Also our room was connected to another by a door. And everyone really knows how that can be if it's not well insulated. Our neighbors did have young children with them and were a noisy at times. This was really the only big problem we had. We generally had a great time and would return. This location is great if your looking for somewhere close to Williamsburg and Busch Gardens and want to be off the main highway and back in a nice wooded area.

After a 10 hr drive we drove into Patriots Place and were nicely surprised on how beautiful the grounds were. At check in, the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Off to the condo. After checking out the rooms, the staff called to see if you need anything! Very nice! The condo itself was decorated in colonial style and very clean. I would highly recommend staying here for families.There is so much to do around this area and they have activities for the kids in the complex itself . One night was a karaoke party at the pool that was so much fun! This place has everything you need to have a wonderful vacation. We sure did!
