You see the beautiful photo but the results were ugly. Our room was dark, dank, and smelled of mildew. Sheets and all were never changed in 3 days; the bed was just made. Old Coffee pot but no coffee. Some items (throw away) left on floor and never picked up. 1 small wastebasket. No ice availability. With the smell and... More

We did not have a good experience at this hotel/resort. There were only a few good points, but i will lead with those, because not all aspects of the establishment were terrible. The Good: 1. The bed was comfy and clean. 2. The room had a good A/C unit: very important for Virginia in the Summer. 3. Parking was available.... More

We stayed in a Colonial room which was one of their cottages. Apparently we weren't lucky enough to get a renovated room. The bed was comfortable and the staff was nice. The room was ok. Very outdated and no sound proofing whatsoever. I don't need to hear every conversation my neighbors have. There was a pool right next to our... More

We are Westgate owners down in Orlando. But this time, we decide to trade our stay and booked a week at the Williamsburg Westgate. And we have no regrets! Hotel is way smaller than the Lakes & Spa in Florida but, well, the purpose is entirely different! Overall, we had a good stay. The property itself is well taken care... More

I passed up nicer hotels w the same low rate of $89/night to stay here bc of the high rating (8.2) which was a total mistake. We had 4 adults in a One bedroom villa w a sofa pullout in the main house. Room looked nice upon arriving. Should have been plenty of room however, when I reported the bedroom... More

Will never ever stay here again!!!!We had expected to stay in the main building. When we checked-in, we were "updated" from the cottages to the older side building. Cottages are supposed to be very basic and rustic. When assigned to our first room, we opened the door and there were people in there. Had to be assigned a second room.... More

We decided to stay here since it was AAA recommended and an almost too good to be true price. The room was alright, the beds very comfortable but the bathroom was in rough shape- dated, the tub had trouble draining and the door stopper on the bathroom door dragged against the floor. We also had a room with 2 beds... More

I had read other reviews and so called the hotel to verify where we were staying. A woman assured me we were in the main building and in the motel-like cottages people complained about. When we arrived, we were placed in a cottage and told they had no idea who I spoke with. You have to drive to these "cottages"... More

Your comments and opinion are really important to us. All our units are assigned at the time of check-in and based on the availability we have to offer; for this, we do not understand how we could have assured you a specific building. In regards to the housekeeping service, it does not work the same way as a hotel. We... More

All the staff care about is selling you a timeshare They put me in a cottage (avoid them) which is 1/4 mile away from main building and not pictured in any of the ads. Ants in bed No TV Channels on TV
