Just Like Home
We searched quite a while for a place in Williamsburg that offered the amenities that were offered at this resort. There were many to choose from. We chose this one based on the good reviews on this site and we were not dissapointed. The kitchen facilities were without a doubt the cleanest and best equipped we have ever experienced. My wife is extremely picky and all she kept saying was how impressed she was with the kitchen. The villa was very comfortable - extremely clean and well equipped. The screened in balcony with table and chairs was great. We felt like we were in a very private villa. Housekeeping called us every day of our stay asking if we needed or wanted anything. Staff was friendly, helpful and readily available if needed. We visited friends staying at another resort that we had considered. We left there very glad we chose Marriott. We would not hesitate to stay here on future trips.
Communication problems at this resort
Very poor communications between staff members at this resort.
We signed up the day we arrived in Williamsburg for a D.C. tour on the following Thursday........
only to be told at 6 a.m. on Thursday when we arrived to meet the bus..........."didn't they tell you that this trip was cancelled?"
Since this was a highlight of our visit to the area it was quite disappointing and really inexcusable for a Marriott resort............our "compensation" was minimal.
The resort facility and golf is great just be careful when dealing with anyone from the activities department!!!
The four of us stayed here and played golf all week. The staff are the best!! The golf is good and the food and drinks were great. Try the local bars for some fun at night. We will be back soon.
Nice place to visit
My fiancee and I just took a weekend trip to Williamsburg and we were lucky enough to get a room at the Ford's Colony. The price was quiet high, but the room was very nice. If you want to book a trip for 4 or more this is the place to stay with beautiful suites and well maintained facilities. We got in som biking through the country club around the golf course took a dip in the pool, worked out in the gym. Wish we had time to play golf but we were too busy choosing from the large selection of restaurants to dine at. No complaints at all about the room or service and the location was nicce since we weren't stuck on the main strip in Williamsburg with all the other chain hotels.
First class timeshare resort - lots to see and do. Great!
I am going to continue going to Marriott Manor Club every year, sometimes twice. The place is fantastic, spotless large suites, great golf views (as well as golfing on their 3 courses for reasonable fees) and tons of things to do like Busch Gardens, Virginia Beach (30 min drive), historical sites, Jamestown, Norfolk, and great food (try Whaling Co. near Busch Gardens 10 min away).
The resort golf club has two onsight restaurants - one expensive but 5-star gourmet that's incredible. Outlet shopping abounds everywhere in Williamsburg, and very close to Manor Club. They have a small Spa service that we used once and enjoyed. The pools at the main area are smallish but there is a huge one just across a little road. Lots of BBQ's. the Marketplace convenience store is on sight and has pizza, etc. in the main building, open till 10 pm. Furnishings are first class, and in keeping with old Virginia ambiance.
If you want smaller, cheaper places than 2 bedroom suites, Manor Club has that too across the road - three buildings (and pool) that have studios (with kitchenettes), 1 bedroom suites, and 2 bedroom suites that are a combination of the two.
Wish I had the bed at home
The Manor Club was great. I had a two bedroom condo. The Beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows. The bathrooms were a nice size, one had a wirlpool tub. The kitchen/dinning room had everything you would need. The Living room had a fireplace which I used every night. The Manor Club is in a golf community so there is no other hotels around which was nice. It was like being in the country but really it was only like a 5 minute drive to local attractions. They do have an indoor and outdoor pool and activities but this did seem more like an adult hotel, kids might get bored if staying longer then a few nights.
No more hotel rooms for me. Manor Club is far better.
Marriott Manor Club is situated in the middle of the 54 hole Ford's Colony Golf course...just a beautiful setting. The original section only has 2 bedroom suites and the newer section across the street has more variety - 1 bdrm, 2 bdrm, studios. All are nicely decorated and VERY spacious. The studios have a king bed, sofabed, kitchenette with dishes, bathroom and table with 2 chairs. Nice. Parking is free. In the suites you get a full kitchen with living/dining room so you can even cook your meals if you don't go out. The Dining Room at Ford's Colony is a 5 star restaurant, one of the few in all of Virginia - pricey but wonderful (jackets req'd). The Grille Room is also nice, but casual and lower priced (not gourmet). This location is very hot and humid in summer, but just wonderful in Spring and Fall. It is a highly rated 'timeshare' but it's sold out and there aren't any salespeople to bug you to buy. Ford's Colony is a private golf course, but guests at Marriott can play!
Be advised they charged me $7.00 per minute for long distance phone calls. No warning anywhere they just said tough "S" when I complained.Stay at your own risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A Beautiful Stay in Williamsburg
We just returned from a week's vacation in Williamsburg. The Manor Club is a beautiful resort with huge villas. We had a 2-bedroom villa for my husband and I with a toddler - more than enough room. The clientele was older than us, but were very friendly and accommodating to our toddler. We spent most of our days at local attractions or shopping (which is fabulous by the way!). We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the one outdoor pool that was open. I would recommend this for anyone, although it may be a bit boring for children under the age of 12. They offered a Kids Program for 5 and up, but was not running the week we were there due to lack of participation.
We have stayed at the Manor Club on three consecutive years. The weather was a little cool when we first stayed in April 2000 (rather like a British summer which was not what we wanted), but it was very hot (80s) in August the following year.The fixtures and fittings are up to Marriott's usual high standard. The location is lovely, it is set within three championship golf courses and Marriott owners who exchange are entitled to five/six free games of golf per week per person, so if there were two golfers they could play three times free. A cart must be used and paid for.The area is beautiful, very green with lots of trees and the historic area of Colonial Williamsburg is just lovely. I could happily live there. There are two good factory outlets about ten minutes away and the area isn't confusing to find your way around. My husband lets me out on my own and I always find my way back!The golf club is the proud possessor of two fine restaurants. One is very expensive but the other is perfectly affordable with two teenagers in tow as well.If you choose this location you will have a lovely restful vacation but not so restful that your teenagers will be bored.
