I visited the historic Powhatan resort for a second time this year in June for my birthday. The experience was completely different from my first stay which was incredible. On this stay, we were not only unable to check in early, but we didn't even get to check in by check in time. When we got to the room, it was hot and muggy. Immediately I went to the thermostat to discover that the temperature controls don't even let me change the temperature to room temperature. Set on having a good birthday, I went to go crank up the hot-tub that i enjoyed just a few months earlier. Of course, I got this room because of the hot tub. The door was locked to the hot tub room from all direction. Then i noticed a sign saying it was under construction. I called to front desk to asked to be moved, but sadly the indicated that all rooms no longer had hot tub access. That's insane considering it's still in the room description and that's why I paid the money for that room. I was quite upset with this, but only said okay thanks to the guy at the front desk who less than cordially said yeah whatever. Fantastic. The bathroom had bugs and the dishes were dirty. Those things didn't bother me as much. Such a shame, it used to be a favorite place to stay, but I can't say I'm itching to return with my favorite feature gone.
