It is a very nice resort. It is well maintained and in a great location. It is close to so many things that are available in and around Williamsburg and yet, because of the size of the entire resort, it provides a very peaceful atmosphere.

The Historic Powhatan Resort was big and beautiful. We were there in an off-week so we had run of the resort. Its located in close proximity of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Richmond and many other great Virginia communities. Everything went great. The staff was very helpful.

What is difference between a four bedroom and four bedroom lockout?
Hi JorrieM - All of our 4 bedroom units are lock-off units. The lock-off will be a combination of two 2 bedroom units with a door in-between. I hope this helps! -KG

The Deluxe units were refurbished back in 2013 and will be having a soft goods renovation beginning in January of 2019. The overall resort, 845 units, is about 60% completed in full renovations, but we cannot guarantee a guest will have a renovated unit. We certainly do our best to block requests, but cannot guarantee.

"Get a 2 story unit if a quiet stay is important to you."
"Doors don’t latch correctly. One door was evidently repaired. Washer/dryer extremely loud"
"Choose upstairs unit to avoid sound of loud feet above."
"Avoid the place for overnight stay"
"I gather it depends if you wish to be close to the restaurant or pool. We were happy to be further away."
