“Extremely Friendly Staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Our family of 5 had a quick two night staff in the 2 bedroom near the pool. Everything was very clean and accessible!

The kids enjoyed checking out games from the activity center, ping pong, basketball, miniature golf, and of course the pool.

We have stayed here several times beginning about 10 years ago. I must say that we found the staff extremely helpful, friendly and professional! We will return on our next visit to Williamsburg.

We spent 3 nights at the Greensprings Plantation. We had a 2 bedroom unit with a pull out bed...full kitchen, washer and dryer. They had two pools, mini golf, dvd rentals, activties throughout the day for the kids, a sand volleyball court and much more. The unit was older, but it was clean. Getting extra towels and dishwashing soap was not a problem. I actually called them ahead of time b/c I had read some reviews about them being pushy as far as wanting to show you their timeshare, etc. The man at the concierge desk assured me that if I said no to a tour that that would not be an issue at all. Not only was it not an issue, but we weren't even asked to take a tour. Although I did indeed write down the man's name in case I ran into any problems!! I got our tickets to Colonial Williamsburg AND Jamestown at the resort and saved about $5/ticket getting them at the resort vs. getting them at the ticket counter. It is centrally located. We also did Jamestown and toured the Shirley Plantation....the longest trip was to the plantation, and I think that was like 45 minutes away. We'd stay here again, for sure.

Room Tip: There was NO restaurant...can't unclick the bubbles!!

We had a family reunion, 4 generations, a total of 12 people stayed in 3 units. (Included 2 babies under a year old). We had a severe summer storm while we were there and the staff at the pool kept us fully informed regarding the approaching storm so we could avoid getting caught. Also we had a power outage that lasted for about 5 hours. These were not the most pleasant of vacation situations, but in all cases everything was handled in an efficient manner. Also, when we had problems ( a continual coffee pot issue) they were handled in an efficient way.

We decided to come here at the last minute, and got a good rate through a budget site. As such, my expectations were tempered. But when we walked in to the room, we were impressed. Our room had a living room and dining room, plus kitchen, deck and two spacious bedrooms. The bathroom had a spa tub. We've spent a few vacations in a standard two-double hotel room, and this felt huge. It wasn't terribly stylish if that's your thing, but very clean and comfortable.

There is shopping nearby to get groceries, and Colonial Williamsburg was not a long drive. The time share at check in wasn't over the top, and they offer a goodie bag of coupons for just stepping up to the desk. The pool was very nice for the kids, not very deep, and there was an amusement area to the side, and a basketball court. We went there to cool off after spending our day downtown.

One annoyance: I reserved a room for a relative in his name, explaining when he would arrive and explicitly asking for him to check in on his own. I was told this was fine. The room was prepaid and, although I had already checked in and they had a credit card on file (and he was willing to hand his over as well), they wouldn't allow him to check in without me present. He waited 15 minutes in line at check in before he was curtly informed he couldn't check in, alerted me, I came to the lobby and we had to wait another 20 minutes in line before checking him in. While we waited, three time share concierges sat idle as the front desk was short-staffed.

Williamsburg wasn't super high on our list, but our family loved it. At 10 and 8, our kids were the perfect age to discover the history and craft-making on display. They got to see how things actually are made, like a lock and key. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor if you have mobility issues.

It was clean & conveniently located. We loved the pool & the tiki bar - good food & drinks at a decent price. The staff was friendly. (Timeshare was not pushed as other reviewers stated. We politely refused & they didn't insist or get annoyed.) We would definitely stay here again!

My family and I just got back from Greensprings Plantation. It was perfect for my family of five. When we arrived we were greeted graciously by the front desk, and the concierge serves was awesome. We were greeted with a welcome packet with directions and phone numbers to local attractions and stores. I have stayed in alot of resorts and hotels, but this was one of the best. The condo was very spacious and clean. The appliances were well kept. My wife wanted the water temperature turned up and they came right over. The kids I traveled with were 12, 10, & 5 and they thoroughly enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools. I am definitely looking forward to going back and staying there again.

Greensprings Plantation was perfect for my family of five. We stayed her June 10-16, 2013. The condo was large! My children are 15, 20, and 23,so we basically have five adults in our party. Having two full baths was wonderful. It was VERY clean, and we are picky about our condos. I didn't feel like I had to clean anything before feeling comfortable. All the kitchen small appliances seemed new. The master bedroom was large as was the master bath. The tub was very nice and large. We did ask for a recently renovated unit. It was quiet and very affordable. The public areas, pool and so on, were very nice as well. When the weekend rolled around it did seem to fill up with some loud, rude, and obnoxious guests, but it was peaceful during the week. We told them at check-in that we had no interest in the time share and were not going to a presentation. They didn't bother us again until the last day. They left a message on our phone offering again and we simply didn't return the call. Overall, a great place to stay while visiting Williamsburg!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been recently renovated.
