“Stay away until housekeeping gets a serious overhaul”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

Checking in on Christmas Eve, we were offered a unit with a sticky dining area table top and a lot of stuff that looked like paint chips on the carpet. When we balked, we were shown other units in similar shape, including one with a brown ring in the bathtub and one with ants in the bathroom. They smelled musty, too. That night we reluctantly stayed in the SIXTH one, the least bad, because it was getting late and we were tired. The following day we moved to yet another unit, still not sparkling but at least not gross. What was most disturbing is that management didn't seem to think there was really a problem -- I think they were just trying to appease a couple of finicky guests, as they saw it. They gave us a couple of coupons god for a nice discount at any of several nearby resetaurants. In the restaurant we chose for lunch the next day, the waitress cheerfully informed us, "Oh, we see a lot of these coupons. We must have had 30 just at yesterday's dinner."

Worst of all, the Wyndham corporate Customer Relations person I got on the phone on the 26th, as we were trying to get switched to a different resort, just poured gasoline on the fire. He told me the resort could not do any more for us when the manager, whom he had on the other line, was offering those dinner tickets. (She told me this a few hours later, when I followed up in person.) He apparently had also not told her that meal tickets were one of the forms of compensation I had indicated I might accept.

I will credit the resort staff, especially the front desk people and one security guy who escorted us to rooms, with being helpful and considerate. The one manager I eventually connected with seemed genuinely interested in being helpful, but surprisingly limited in what she could offer. (No upgrade, for example.)

Oh, and the renovated units, the allegedly improved ones, had some color schemes that seem to have been picked out by Stevie Wonder. Drab, dreary stained carpets "enlivened" by multicolor drapes that looked like they might have come from Mardi Gras -- after the serious drinking had been going on for a while. Ugh.

The hot water in the shower takes quite a while to get hot. They explain that this is not a malfunction, but a feature -- something about being "green." I don't understand how it is eco-friendly to keep having to run and drain water for several minutes without using it.

In short, the amenities sound attractive in prospect, but you couldn't pay me to stay here again. This place really needs someone like the late Leona Helmsley to teach them what "clean and attractive" means in the hospitality business.

“Everything we needed, some issues with hot water, no elevator”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed for four nights and were generally pleased. The place was very clean and had a small kitchenette at one end of the living room. Washer and dryer were provided in the bathroom, but we did not use them.

We could hear noise from the next door neighbors, as the walls were fairly thin. Luckily, they didn't really disturb us. We chose the top floor and were happy that we did. No one walking overhead makes for better sleep! There is no elevator, so some folks might find staying on an upper floor to be difficult.

There was a natural gas smell when we ran the hot water which we reported when we left. We opened both doors to the bathroom and ran the fan when we used the shower. The tankless hot water system they described in the literature shared with us on checkin was nothing new to us. We have one at home. Once the hot water was flowing, however, we had some interruptions. Each of the four showers I took was interrupted with COLD water for a period from a minute to 3 minutes. That was less than pleasant.

We did not use any of the facilities provided: indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, mini-golf.

We were still required to pay a $5.00 Daily Fee for activities even though we did not participate.

Our total cost for four nights was $411.00. Not bad for the price. I might go back to the Country Inn and Suites for a lower rate in the future.

From check-in to check-out, it was a great experience here.The interior and exterior were immaculate. It was a family affair, and we loved the fact that it was very kid friendly too. Our son had a blast riding his bike on the property. Wyndham Kingsgate has amenities such as an indoor, outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, tennis court, movie theatre. We highly recommend it to others. We definitely will return ;-)

“Nice resort to stay to see colonial Williamsburg”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

This was a wonderful little resort. Had a great many amenities. Pool, restaurant, theatre, mini golf, tennis courts......

The unit was OK, needed a little updating, but we found it small for just the two of us. We loved everything else. Was centrally located to visit colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown. Busch Gardens was nearby, though we didn't visit. We would visit again, but take a 2 bedroom and not in June. It was very hot and humid there. Lots to do, overall it was a great place to visit....

The resort is very clean and has a lot of amenities. The staff is supper friendly and very helpful. Will be returning next year. My daughter (age 10) had a good time. She enjoyed the pools, game room and miniature golf. Would highly recommend this location for your vacation.

The unit was very nice: clean, quiet, well appointed and comfortable. The King bed was glorious. We loved the mattress; a perfect sleep. The folks who checked us in were knowledgeable and courteous.

The condo was comfortable and very clean. The pullout conch had a nice thick mattress. The grounds were nicely landscaped and well maintained. They have great scheduled activities and a beautiful pool complex. I especially enjoyed water aerobics with Dinah, and the guest speakers dressed up a historical figures from Colonial Williamsburg. No one bothered us about condo ownership. It was convenient location and I found a great price online. We wished we could have stayed longer. I look forward to coming back!
