We went for a week on a timeshare exchange. The unit we had was not renovated yet (I think), but it was still in very nice condition. The kitchen was well stocked with all needed utensils, towels, dish soap, sponge, etc.
The property is close to nearly everything you'd want to visit. It is just a few miles from Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and College of William and Mary. It's a little farther (but not much) to Yorktown. This is definitely a very convenient resort to see the historic locations.
Just a mile or so down the road from the resort is a GREAT park for kids (there are 2 separate areas for younger kids (toddlers) and bigger kids). Also, right near the park is a bunch of shopping (grocery store (Martin's), Target, liquor store, etc.) and some restaurants.
There were two parts of our trip that we weren't thrilled with, but it wasn't enough to ruin a vacation or anything.
First is the non-stop attempts to get us to come to the sales pitch. We had a 2 year old with us, so we declined each of the 7 or 8 times we were asked during the week. They all pretend to not know that you said no to someone else in the office previously.
Second was the creaking of the main staircase and the ability to hear footsteps above us anytime someone walked. We were on the second floor, so I'm sure we caused the same headaches for the people below us with our 2 year old running around. Like I said, it's not something that was a huge deal, especially if you've ever lived in a condo/townhouse before.
Lastly, the mini-golf course was pretty awful because the balls kept jumping the side rails. That being said, it was still something fun to do.
