Though the location of this resort is lovely and very close to the neighboring historical sites; we encountered a very nasty episode with bedbugs.
Our children experienced severe allergic reactions to the bites and had to have medical attention. We were moved to a nicer room in the estate portion of the resort after declining a substandard unit offered in exchange for the bed bug unit.
The manager appeared initially very kind and caring and said that we would be compensated for the medical attention and our time, but to date we have received no response to letters or phone calls.
It is a shame, because we trusted these people to do what they said they would do.
Check your room carefully; behind the headboards, mattresses, and boxspring. Our room appeared clean, but bedbugs were rampant.
I hpoe this review is a help to others.

I had never stayed at this resort before but had always wanted to.We were able to go over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful time.The first thing that i was impressed with was the staff very helpful and polite!This is always important to me as i am sure it is with others.I thought the grounds were well maintained and clean!The unit itself was very nice!Very spacious and clean!I really liked the sitting room that was located off the one bedroom and living room!There was a nice indoor pool and gym but i did not get to use it.The resort is near Yorktown and Jamestown which we spent alot of time at each!The river walk in Yorktown was very nice!Visiting Jamestown was also a great expierence.If you get the chance check out Presidents Park right near the resort.It is a great thing to check out that is very close by.We were extremely blessed on our stay with very nice weather so we were able to do alot of outdoor things.I have been to Williamsburg several times and Kings Creek is probably one of the nicest places i have stayed at!I give it a edge over Wyndhams Kingsgate but Wyndhams Govenors Green is i think a little bit better!None the less i dont think you can go wrong with any of the three!Hope this is some help to others.Be Blessed Jimbass!

Went on a tour, but was not atall impressed with the facilities. Every unit had (2) garbage cans on the front sidewalk which makes it look like a housing development rather than a timeshare resort.

Also, we were not impresed with the promises of future development allegedly substantiated by a dormant back hoe, and empty construction trailers. When asked why no construction work was being done during the middle of the workday, we received a paltry response of, "The Builder is a benevolent fellow that gave the workers off for the entire Christmas week".

Not certain why this seems to be so well ranked on this site, but possibly the rooms and staff are more accommodating than what we saw and experienced. It was definitiely well "off of the beaten trail".

I had a super time at King's Creek...I celebrated my birthday at the resort and I can't say enough about the accomodations and the housekeeping service. My wife is a stickler about cleanliness so if she was pleased I am too! I can wait until next year to celebrate my special day at the resort.
Thanks,

We celebrated my fathers birthday at Kings Creek Resort. We rented the 4-bedroom house and another 2-bedroom condo. We had the party in the 4-bedroom home and had about 25 guests there was plenty of room. Downstairs we had 2-kitchens and upstairs 1-kitchen. The house slept 14 comfortably. They upkeep the property very well at the resort. The resort staff was very accomodating to us. We needed extra chairs for our party, they brought them over with no problem. Grocery stores, restaurants, and gas station are in close proximity. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kings Creek and will go back in the future.

I was really pleased with our week long stay at this resort.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage style unit. The seperate bedroom was quite large with a king size bed, plenty of drawer space and TV. Also the bathroom was very roomy with a double vanity, whirpool tub and seperate shower unit. The kitchen/living room area was very small and cramped. It included a efficiency style kitchen tucked in the corner with a small but full size refrigerator. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials. Even paper towels were provided. Small kitchen table with 2 chairs. Also had sleeper sofa in this space along opposite wall and a cocktail table. This unit is listed with maximum occupancy of 4. Iam not sure how the sleeper sofa could be used comfortably. The TV in the living area was located on the wall directly above the refrigerator about 4 feet acroos from the sofa. Needless to say we used the TV in the bedroom. Directly outside the kitchen door was a good size wooden deck with 2 deck chairs. A patio table would have made it perfect. The unit included an apartment size washer/dryer that was convenient.
The entire unit was spotless and in order upon arrival. Towels and bed linens were provided. The housekeeping staff at King's Creek do a great job on upkeep maintenance and cleanliness.
King's Creek was a quiet resort. We heard no outside noise or noise from the unit next to ours even though a couple with a small child stayed there. We went in October so it wasn't an extremely busy or crowded time of the year.
The clubhouse had an indoor pool that looked nice but we didn't use. So much to see with so little time that the pool was last on our list. King's Creek is located within a few miles of all major attractions. A car is a must unless you stay directly in Colonial Williamsburg.
All the staff we met during our week there were friendly and helpful. All in all we enjoyed our stay here.

Just spent a week at this resort (exchange through Interval Intl.). Four people in our party - my wife and myself (in low to mid 50's), our son (29), and my father (82). We had a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath unit. Bedrooms were upstairs. Master bedroom had a king size bed. The other bedroom had 2 twin beds. Each had it's own bathroom and each had a 19" TV. The bed in the master did seem hard as some others have stated, but we had no problem sleeping on it (maybe we were just tired from the activities of the day??). Some of the outlets in the master didn't work properly - you had to move the plug side to side to get contact - could be a fire hazard.

Downstairs, the galley kitchen was equipped with a stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, toaster, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, utensils - most everything needed. They could stand to add another frying pan, as it's difficult to cook bacon and eggs at the same time with just one frying pan. The sink sprayer was inoperative/broken (didn't call to have it fixed), the faucet handle was loose, and the cabinets were white thermofoil and some were peeling. I did tell them about the faucet handle and outlets and they had maintenance there right away (less than 1/2 hour). The flooring was Pergo type and had apparently been very wet more than once as it was cupping and not smooth at all. The half bath had the same floor and it was in even worse condition. If flooding in the units is a problem they should consider ceramic tile for these floors. There was a washer/dryer stack in a closet off the kitchen which worked very well - smaller loads than we're used to at home, but hey, sure was convenient to have them right there in the unit.

The living room had a sleeper sofa for guests with the need for additional sleeping space. TV was a 42" flat screen and there was a DVD player. TV service was cable and HD was available for local channels. Called the office to ask if they had VCR's available as my wife was having soap opera withdrawal (heaven forbid she should miss them while sightseeing). I was told they didn't have any available - she survived the week though.

Gas grills were next to the street and were to be shared by multiple units. The unit had outdoor sitting areas with chairs - which we made use of several times.

There are 2 pools - one in and one outdoors. Each had a hot tub. Didn't use the outdoor pool (it WAS late October). Indoor pool was fine, but while the hot tub portion was hot, it had no more water flow than the normal pool filter return. Fitness center was small but adequate. There is a small store in the aquatic center across from the check in desk - but they don't carry much in the way of groceries (almost none). There are 3 computers to use there also.

As far as location is concerned, it was a short drive (15 minutes) to Historic Williamsburg visitor's center. From there, you take shuttles to Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. Our first day (Monday) we went to Historic Jamestown and the settlement. We were able to get a motorized wheelchair for dad at the settlement for free. Tuesday, we took the Tidewater Tours Washington D.C. trip. The tour company provided a free manual wheelchair for dad. Wednesday, went to Norfolk for the naval museum and battleship tours (both free). Stopped at the Yorktown Victory Center on the way back. Again a free motorized wheelchair. Thursday and Friday were spent in Williamsburg. Got 2 day tickets for $46 each. Seniors were apparently free but had to pay $7/day for a manual wheelchair.

Busch Gardens and the water park are right near the resort, as is Target for groceries. But, if you want a restaurant, your going to have to drive a bit.

All in all, King's Creek was a pretty good place to stay. If we ever decide to go back and explore the Williamsburg area in more depth, I'm pretty certain we would stay there again.
