“Feels like home”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We stayed in the "Cottages" which are duplexes and so you only have one neighbor which makes it much quieter. Contrary to what some other reviews said, we heard very little from our neighbor, only when they were coming in or going out of our shared entry way. We stayed in a one bedroom unit and there was no unit above us. ( Some reviewers reported noise from their upstairs neighbors, so try asking for a unit where there is no one upstairs.) The bedrooms was large (king-size bed) as was the bathroom (separate tub and shower + his and hers sinks). There was a nice deck with shrubs around that provided privacy. The only negative factor was the small kitchen /dining/livingroom. There was very little preparation space but we managed. Also you had to walk through this combination room to get to the closet which would make it awkward if you had guests using the sleeper sofa other than your own kids. If you are going to Colonial Williamsburg buy tickets at the front desk as you can get a 3 day pass for only a little more than a 1 day ticket at the park.

Room Tip: If you are getting a 1BR cottage unit, ask for one that does not have anyone above you.

We had an RCI exchange into Kings Creek Plantation for the first week of May 2014. We stayed in a 3 bedroom 3 ½ bath unit in the Cottages section. It was a 1 & 2 bedroom lockout colonial style unit that was detached with a front porch and 2 really nice decks. All of the units in the Cottages section are the same.
The resort is in the process of doing facelifts on the units in the Cottages section as well as building additional units in other sections. The unit looked freshly painted, recently rebuilt decks and overall very clean and most importantly, “comfortable”…. The appliances were a bit dated, but all were clean and again, most importantly, “fully functioning”. There were sizable flat screen TVs in all 3 bedrooms and 1 in each of the living area of both lockouts. The only problem we had was an A/C problem in the 2 bedroom section of the unit. When we called maintenance to report the issue, we were told someone would be there shortly. Within 15 minutes, a gentleman arrived, diagnosis the problem, and explained the possible timeframe in which the A/C would be fixed or replaced. He was able to repair the unit and after 1 hour the A/C unit was repaired. (Thanks Mr. Tim).
The check-in process was quick and easy. Everyone with the resort was very helpful and courteous. The indoor pool area was very clean and offered changing rooms with lockers. We walked around throughout the resort and found clean well-kept grounds and fully equipped play grounds and outdoor pools. Although we were asked to attend a presentation, we were never pressured nor felt obligated to attend.
I would definitely recommend this resort and would certainly stay here again in the Cottages section.

Room Tip: We like the Cottage Style dethatched units over the townhouse type attached.

Dear “LouisianaCharlie,”

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive thoughts with us. Our goal is to make all of our Guests as comfortable as possible, and it sounds like we accomplished that. It was nice of you to notice our “look of fresh paint” and the fact that additional improvements are also underway. Your enjoyment is what is most important to us and we really appreciate the positive feedback. Tim and the HVAC team will be excited to hear your praise as well! We look very forward to seeing you again next year!

Sincerely,

We took advantage of the 3 night stay in a one bedroom condo for $99, in exchange for attending a "90 minute investment program"

Condo was perfect for 2 adults and our 9 year old son (slept on fold out sofa) Location was great and this property was very family friendly. For us, 3 nights was just right.

The 90 minute presentation turned into 2 hours. The sales person was very personable, and pointed out every possible positive to purchasing a time share. They focused a lot on using it as an exchange. There were some sales points I question, such as Williamsburg being the 3rd most popular destination in the US. The sales price dropped from around $60,000 for an estate to $9900, then after we repeatedly declined the price dropped to $4900 and as we were leaving we were given a $3900 offer. We didn't buy but had no regrets about our stay.

This is more of a timeshare rental than hotel, so I agree it would have been nice to see housekeeping occasionally, but I understand why we didn't. However, this place was clean, reasonably quiet and close to all attractions like Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, etc. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage, which had two floors, kitchen and living area on the bottom and bedrooms (each with their own bathroom attached) upstairs. While maybe not luxurious, I found the decor to be just as I expected, cute and cottage-like. Again I will stress the cleanliness of this place, which I find to be important when vacationing. Their was a family in the condo attached to ours and at night we could hear their tv on faintly, but it didn't bother us. The indoor pool was really great, but had to drive to the aquatic center to get there and back. Overall I would go back and recommend this place.

We pulled up to the area and had great expecations, but after the first night we were really disappointed. We ended up getting a condo at the Townes. The condo was well equiped, and the rooms were big and spacious. But they are really poorly built and very dated. They had 3 tvs, but all of them were really small, even the one in the livingroom. The worse part is that we were on the first floor with a family with kids above us. We could hear every step they took. It sounded like we were under a bowling alley! We talked to the family and they assured us, that the kids were not jumping around. The fans in the bathroom sounded like a jet taking off and the showers sounded like a waterfall. If these are timeshares, I would never buy from there. I was told we ended up in the older area. Regardless, not at all pleased with accomodations.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the Townes, try a different section.

Stayed here for my son's spring break. We had a few minor issues with our unit that were immediately corrected once management was notified. This place is really close to historical sites and many excellent colleges and universities.

I would recommend that King's Creek provide a mid week cleaning of the units or provide their guests access to a vacuum and cleaning supplies. A great grocery store is close by.

Hotels can not compete with a place like this when it comes to space, family activities, amenities and cost.

This resort was clean the only problem I had was that the cottage smelled old and the floor in the bathroom needed to be replace there were cigarettes burns in the floor and it did not look clean. But my over all expierence was good but if I was to go to a presentation by choice I would expect to stay in something close to what you would like for me to buy to become an owner.

Room Tip: The rooms are quiet

First, thank you for booking your Anniversary getaway at King’s Creek! And, we sincerely appreciate your sharing this particular feedback about the 1 Bedroom Cottage Suite you stayed in. You can be assured that immediate attention and any corrective action has been taken. As you may know, our 1 Bedroom Cottage is only the “lock-off” portion of our original and very popular 3 Bedroom Cottage. Even with the least square footage of all of our accommodations, the 1 Bedroom Cottage is often preferred for the value of being at King’s Creek. We are happy to hear you had a positive and enjoyable experience overall and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
