We really enjoyed our stay at this historic property! Our suite had a large bedroom and bathroom as well as a nice size living room and comfortable kitchen. It was not like staying in a hotel at all, but was like being at home. The rooms were clean and beautifully furnished. There are two large TVs and and an electric...

The customer service is excellent, everyone is very nice, polite and professional. The rooms are very nice, they say they will be updating this year, will love to see after they are done. The pool is very nice along with a nice sand volleyball court and grill area. The location to downtown, activities and necessities is wonderful. Had a great...

We're Westgate owners, so this is our go-to place for visiting the Williamsburg area. If we weren't owners, we would have selected a better property. The suite we're inhabiting this week needs a fair amount of maintenance and updating. It also needs deep cleaning. We wiped out all the drawers in the bedroom before unpacking. There are no bedbugs, though....

The decor was drab, the appliances were older than I am, the fixtures were dated, and the bathtub was awkwardly placed. There was a ton of BLACK MOLD in the shower and it was beyond disgusting. They provided dishes and pots, but we had no frying pan and had to use a sauce pan instead. No salt, pepper, sugar, or...

I truly appreciate any business that also caters to dogs. Taking my best animal is the best vacation ever. So that's why I like to stay in any Westgate Resorts across the country. I don't go that far though with the dogs. I take my dogs in a reasonable road trip.

We arrived at the lovely hotel and had to wait by the pool until our room was ready. We were then told that our room was not located in the main quaint hotel but rather in an old filthy hotel down the block. We complained but were told they had no other rooms. We went to the room which looked...

Let me start this review by stating that we did get a deal to visit in exchange for a timeshare presentation, because some will feel you get what you pay for.
