"Land of the Lost Resort"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

By all appearances this was a lovely resort but impossible to find. My friend and I got lost almost every night and afternoon of our stay when we tried to get back to the resort from area attractions. They had an obscure and hard to see entrance sign. An improvement and what would make a perfect stay would have been shuttles between this resort and area attractions. It was very frustrating. Also, what made things worse was the very high pressure sales presentation for time share on the first day that lasted over 2 hours. If the other resorts' are as hard to find then I never plan to make a return visit ever again and they can forget about me considering their timeshare program.The other difficulty was that every apartment looked alike so finding our unit proved difficult as well. Once found our unit was clean and comfortable and that was the only saving grace of the resort. The restaurant was way overpriced when compared to outside restaurants like Applebees or Chili's. The food was very good but expensive. Fear of getting lost in the dark kept us eating at the resort restaurant opposed to going someplace cheaper outside. I'm now home and recovering from the stress of being constantly lost. If you have trouble finding your way around avoid this place at all costs.

The facility, staff, amenities, and service were excellent. Need to get digital cable or Fios connection. Television service needs improvement. Activities desk or access to needed equipment should be open or available before 10:00am. I did observe a dog on Forest Lane or Wildflower and I thought this was a pet free vacation.

"Disconcerting Ad on Hotels.com"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed September 19, 2017 NEW
We are booked to stay at the Powhatan based on internet ad on Hotels.com. After booking and pre-paying, I was informed by a second confirmation that The Powhatan REQUIRES AN ADDITIONAL $100 BEYOND WHAT WAS ADVERTISED. I called The Powhatan to inquire about additional money required upon check-in. I told the manager that this requirement is not mentioned in the booking and that I felt somewhat deceived. He stated it was necessary to cover any damages we might do during our two-night stay. He told me it would not be refunded until the maid had confirmed that the room was in good shape. The wait for a credit on our credit card could be up to 10 days and I told him that in not advertising this fact, I felt the deception was unfair. To tell you the truth, I can imagine that they could state an untruth about any "damage" and keep the additional $100 making the room much more expensive than it is listed. The manager was upset that I was upset and make a hasty good-bye after I inquired about this fact.

"Awesome place to stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2017 NEW
We loved our stay at the Historic Powhatan Resort. We booked through the Armed Forces Vacation Club and got an excellent room that was newly renovated, very quiet and extremely comfortable and clean. We enjoyed having the kitchen option so that we could prepare a few meals during our 7 day stay. The grounds were gorgeous and provided a lot of walking area. The local coffee shop was great and so was the little store for small items you may need. We took the opporturnity to walk through the historic mansion on the grounds as well. The local restaurant was a great option as well. We enjoyed breakfast there one day and dinner on another night. Super friendly people in all of the businesses.
