"Nice, but hidden costs."
June, 2018
This hotel was very nice, the in-room laundry was a nice addition. Plenty of activities for the kids. They were a pushy with their time-share program. Their resort fee was more expensive than what was listed on my print out from Reserve Williamsburg.

Tip: skip the coserige table--that's where they get pushy about time shares and want all kinds of personal info. Check in was a long process.

"Nice resort, very close to amenties. Only a few issues."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 16, 2018 NEW
Big, beautiful resort that would have probably been even more enjoyable had we been able to stay longer (only one night stay, stopped on the way to New York). Very close to restaurants, Target, etc. Pools were nice except the adult only pool was empty while the other two pools were massively crowded. The entrance to the pool was slippery and almost broke my arm. Back to to the positive, the room was spacious and clean with all the amenities and very comfortable bed. But food at the property is an adventure; the store on the property closes very early so if you want to eat something after 9:00 and don't want to leave the resort you either have to find a stray vending machine somewhere or get to the restaurant before it closes. We learned this the hard way, my daughter wanted a snack and after driving around the property for half an hour we realized this was not going to be easy to pull off. All that being said, the room was great, the amenities were okay, and the price was affordable.

"Very good resort. Some flaws."

Reviewed October 16, 2018 NEW
Resort was comfortable, well maintained, good location.Our 2br suite was quiet and comfortable.Amenities were good when available.Be aware of resort fee, $15/day, higher than any others nearby.Pool complex had 3 pools. One for adults only.Resort chose to rent to large group attending youth soccer tournament. Crowd of mostly unsupervised kids took over pools while parents were distracted. Most pool rules were ignored. It seemed rights of people not with the soccer group were ignored. Even the restaurant was closed Sunday because it was reserved by the soccer group.Indoor pool was closed for maint. But we were not notified of any closures (pool, restaurant, coffee shop) before we arrived. Management could have provided courtesy advanced warning to those who had reservations.

The units had mold around the tubs, parts of the carpet was missing and the furniture was old and not very clean. The best part was the pool area. The grounds are pretty and the staff was very friendly.

We were overwhelmed when driving onto the grounds of the Historic Powatan Resort. The grounds are so lush and green and the units looked so fresh and inviting. We were in a 2BR, 2BA unit and had so much room along with a deck on the back side of our property that faced a pond. Everything is so centrally located and we would stay there again in a heart beat!

"Nightly additional resort fee = hidden cost"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 08, 2018 NEW
Nice resort, but factor in the $15/night "resort fee" ($117/week with tax) when making your decision of where to stay. There are no unique services provided by this fee that are not usually included at no cost at most resorts. I really dislike these hidden charges with no benefits.
