No joke, these are townhomes-- big enough to live in. You can cook full meals in the kitchen. The fireplace was a bonus. The beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean! You could tell it had been recently remodeled on the inside. Bedding, decor, and furniture were all beautifully updated. The unit had two bedrooms and a pullout couch. It... More

Was disappointed in this place. It was clean but not easily used for senior citizens. The washer and dryer are on the second floor of the unit. The stairs are like climbing a ladder. Really steep. The bathroom facilities need to be improved. Toilets are too low, and also the vanities. The unit we stayed in smelled like smoke, and... More

Just returned from five nights in Williamsburg. Our stay at the Powhatan was great. It's a lovely property and very conveniently located. Our one bedroom, ground floor suite was well appointed and perfect for our needs. Nice place to come home to after a day of sightseeing or golf. The fully equipped kitchen made it possible to eat in when... More

I resented being charged $77.70 for "amenities" that I did not use. Amenities used to be part of the hotel/resort customer service. Staff was all very personable and friendly. I would use this resort again if I'm in the area.

Rooms definitely need upgrading. No tv in the 2nd bedroom which was a downer for the kids so they slept in the living room. Upstairs guests were very noisy and heard very easily through the ceiling. Other then that no complaints. Nice pool area, nice location.

Freaking fantastic! Very private, you feel at home. Very secure as well. The most relaxing place to go! The staff are friendly and very helpful with great suggestions of places to see and things to do. If you don't want to go out, you can have take away delivered to your spot.
