Great room and stay! Checking in was a breeze and the staff are super nice! Only issues was internet connection and the road setup. It got super busy when we went out to venture around Jamestown and the property only has one road in. It got backed up a bit but wasn’t terrible. Overall great stay and would stay again!

My husband and I stayed at this resort from 7/6 to 7/9 and loved every second if our stay! The check in process was easy and our condo was beautiful. We were super impressed with the location as it is pretty central to most of the attractions. Our condo was located toward the back of the property and we were able to see deer at night while sitting out on the balcony. Very relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely go back!

Check in took one hour and forty minutes. Only four staff members were engaged in check ins. The rest were talking on the phone or staring into space. Utter incompetence and indifference. I’ve stayed in 100 hotels over 25 years and this is the worst.

Thank you for the candid feedback. Our staff prides itself on being responsive and forthright and your experience is very uncommon and not our standard level of service. The Historic Powhatan Resort sincerely hopes this will not deter you from allowing us another opportunity to present you with a phenomenal vacation experience you deserve.

Long check in especially sales pitch at end. Very polite and friendly but annoying.
