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.
