Our family vacation began with me purchasing a 4 night- 5 day stay vacation package at Kings Creek Resort at a travel show in Chicago Illinois in 2011. I was promised the following:
1) A 4 bed room home with 4 bathrooms and 3 jacuzzi tubs
2) 4 tickets to Colonial Williamsburg
3) 4 tickets to Bucsh Gardens
in exchange for participating in a 1 hour and 30 minute time-share sales presentation.
What I received was:
1) a two bed room room that is clean and comfortable but not for 6 people. While there is a couch bed that is supposed to accommodate two of the six people, It is very uncomfortable.
2) four tickets to Colonial Williamsburg
3) Almost a three hour presentation with one of the hours over "lunch," with my sales agent.
When I asked about the Busch Garden's tickets, I was told that they are not permitted to give out that many "gifts."
When I asked about the larger home, I was told that they were already booked and could not accommodate me.
I was offered a 4 bed room home, if I was willing to purchase it at that moment- for $46,000+. When I said no, I was then offered less space and less time in the space for $8900 and then $4900 with my final "no thank you."
The lack of follow through with honoring it's promises is just one of the frustrations with this "resort." Further, it is not a resort. There are very few activities outside of the room. They do claim to have a selection of movies to borrow but when I tried, there were none available. The pool was so chlorinated that it burnt my eyes to be in the room, much less the actual pool. Finally, three of the machines that I tried to use in the fitness room were broken.
The other posts which claim poor sound proofing are accurate and frustrating as it was difficult to sleep due to the noise.
At this point, my family vacation has been marked with one disappointment after another. I sincerely hope that people reading these reviews will take all of the poor reviews to heart and avoid this resort.
