Not the cleanest...

  • 3 of 5

First, Dave was VERY considerate, organized and helpful. A first-rate owner and highly appreciated. However, and certainly not of Dave’s doing, the 2-bedroom unit we stayed in was just plain dirty. We were told we were getting a refurbished unit; it may have been, but it smelled just awful (musty). The carpet wasn’t clean at all, so we always wore socks. Marks/scuffs were all over the walls. The tiled shower was filled with mildew/mold in the grout and the shower curtains had no less than 100 mold-spots. The couch was stained - and I mean stained - to the point of us covering it with a sheet during the entirety of our stay. The trim along the bathroom floors was either missing, not secured to the wall or stained/dirty. The resort itself was great (the location, pool, mini-golf, racquetball, etc), but the unit was just awful. The resort simply isn’t doing a good job of cleaning and upkeep.

Absolutely loved this property. The unit was very clean and quiet. We had a two bedroom ground floor unit. Even the pull out couch was extremely comfortable. The kitchen has everything we needed for meal prep. The property itself was great. Two pools. Very helpful staff. We played several games of racquetball at the courts. They also had movies and board games available. Unfortunately the weather was bad off and on during our stay so having these other options was great. We were about 15 minutes from Busch Gardens and 10 from Williamsburg and water country. Cannot day enough about the property. We were approached twice about the time shares (check in and check out) but we declined and went about our way. Check out was a breeze, unlike most condos we didn’t have to do dishes or take trash out. So simple while traveling with kids.

good, but not as advertised ..

  • 4 of 5

We ended up staying at the Greenspring resorts not Historic Powhatan. It was fine not as pretty as Historic Powhatan but we had a building close to the pool. The Greensprings was fine just not as nice looking. The staff was great, the VRBO app sent us to the powhatan rather greenspring since VROB did not know about the change in location. The it was too cold for outdoor pool, the indoor pool was fine, was getting updated but usable. Staff was very nice.

To get a twin bed bedroom set up for kids we had to go for a third floor walk up! Fine for us, but it if your are not up to stairs it would have been a hardship.

Williamsburg was great ...

Owner's Response: We're sorry about the confusion! We are able occasionally to provide units at the newer and 5-star rated Greensprings Resort as well. This is an upgrade over Powhatan and is usually cost prohibitive to book. Still, Powhatan does have that "colonial" look that my wife likes also! When we are able to upgrade our guests, we email them specific instructions, which somehow you missed even though they were sent. Still, the resort was able to work everything out for you, and we're glad you had good stay! Next time we'll be certain you have all the information ahead, so there are no glitches!!! Dave & Sandy

Powhatan is our overall favorite resort in Williamsburg. It’s grounds are beautiful and it’s accommodations comparable to other resorts. This particular accommodation was not as great as some. Lacking dish cloths, used soap in shower, no chairs or furniture in sun room. Hence only 3 stars for a normally higher rated experience.

Fantastic property!

We had such a wonderful experience staying at this property! Very neat, clean, newly renovated. It had all of the essentials we needed for a very comfortable stay. Dave and Sandy were so pleasant to work with. The resort staff were all very friendly and quick to respond with any questions/requests. Looking forward to staying here again! Thank you Sandy and Dave!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2nd floor two bedroom condo. There was plenty of space and everything we needed was provided. Our favorite activity at the resort was the "Ghost Academy and Tour". It was unique and entertaining. We also played racquetball, swam and played putt-putt. Even though the putt-putt course was simple we really enjoyed it. The location was closest to Jamestown, but since we were spending one day on each at Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg it really didn't matter to us which one wa closest.

Owner's Response: Very glad you enjoyed the visit! Because of less traffic lights, its probably only 10 minutes to Jamestown and then 15 to Williamsburg. The indoor and outdoor pool complexes are the biggest hits for our kids. We usually visit one the the area attractions in the morning and by mid afternoon, are back at the resort pools for a swim!
