The hotel is nice but if you want to keep dealing with mite bites three weeks after leaving the hotel, go. It has been a nightmare. Three of us that slept in one of the bedrooms have mite bites all over.

Unfortunately no hotel or resort is immune to bed bug infestation but on those rare occurrences, we have a strict policy in place to combat the problem. If we had the unit number, we could have done a...

The hotel was nice, great rooms, comfortable bedding, equipped kitchen and we had an in unit washer/dryer. They were pushy with sales lunch they called a "complimentary" lunch they kept hounding us to attend. The dishwasher didn't wash dishes well. The pools were nice but unsupervised and when there were alot of unruly children there it made it very unpleasant....

We stayed here over our Spring break in mid March. Nothing Spring about it but it was like that everywhere. This was one of the reasons staying at the Colonies at Williamsburg worked out so well for us. Fake fireplace was still cozy.We had a nice spacious unit, 2 bedroom, 2nd floor. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable. We...

On the plus side, the timeshare resort that also rents out rooms through travel web sites is at a central Williamsburg location, with spacious and clean two and four bedroom suites, at prices that are reasonable for a high demand tourist area. It also has three televisions, one in the living room area and one in each bedroom, all with...

As a family of four, this was a great deal. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen and comfortable living area with fireplace and small outdoor deck. We enjoyed the DVD rentals from the front desk as well as the tennis courts and indoor/outdoor pools. One caveat is that the indoor pool gets extremely noisy and is not the most relaxing...

A friend owns a time share here and 4 couples came to golf and enjoy the area. Accommodations were impressive. Well laid out suites were very comfortable and of better than average quality. Kitchens well equipped. Very nicely decorated with roomy bathrooms( the wife's favorite thing...). Only suggestion would be a TOWEL HOOK right outside the shower for easier access...
