"Only used suite and pool"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

Suite was pretty clean. Was not told ahead of time that there is no maid service of any kind. Swimming pool is small but nice. Towels are provided at the pool.I really have nothing else to say. Don't know why there is a 200 character minimum.

"Caveat emptor"

Let me start by saying the reason we ended up staying here is because the resort we had reservations with, Greensprings Vacation Resort, greeted our group of 10 with "I'm sorry, we have to move you to another resort because we overbooked". After 4 hours in the car that's not what we wanted to hear. The grounds and facility of the Powhatan are beautiful. They are well maintained and picturesque. HOWEVER, the rooms (or apartments) are very dated and are in desperate need of renovation. The walls have paint that almost matches, but still stands out enough to see where repairs have been done. The furniture is near the end of its life cycle and they still have CRT televisions in the bedrooms. The internet is abysmal if your lucky enough to stay connected to it. The reception desk staff was rude as well. When we got to our apartments the key cards stopped working. We called the front desk (on our cell phones because the phone in the room doesn't work). And we were hung up on once, told we'd have to come up and wait in the check-in line again to get new keys and that they were very busy. Finally we got ahold of security and AJ promptly and politely fixed our keys (thank you AJ, you have excellent customer service skills). If you want to visit Williamsburg, I can not recommend this resort. I would recommend finding a resort that appreciates you and treats you like they appreciate you choosing them to spend your hard earned money on.

"Great for a weekend getaway!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 19, 2017 NEW
Stayed for the weekend, and did not get off to a good start. We checked in late on a Friday night, and the man behind the counter "taking care of us" would have been hard pressed to be a bigger snob than he was that night. Completely unprofessional and very unhelpful. The rooms we stayed in were very nice, clean, and updated. The full size fridge and washer/dryer combo was a great addition. The resort itself has a lot of things to do for families, and is very close to a lot of the attractions that you go to Williamsburg for. If it wasn't for the rudeness of the staff member checking us in, this would easily have been a 5 star rating.

Resort manager, and all the employees, at Powhatan Resort make you feel like family. no request is too small or too large for them to accommodate your wishes. The pool complex has been updated with an ADULTS ONLY hot tub. Plenty of kid activities superb location close to all Williamsburg but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of everyday like.

We were put in an older room, where the the TV in the master bedroom was a box and there was no TV in the 2nd bedroom. The mattress in the pull out couch was dirty and the room had slugs in it. There is not a lot of organized events for kids 3-11 to do. We went to play Family bingo and was turned away because there was a body limit, that was not put on the itinerary (first 20 people I believe). On a positive note, customer service did give us a new room,$50 in credit and eventually upgraded us to a modern room (flat screens in all rooms) when the slugs arrived. But we had to pack up and move which took up vacation time.
