Mbullard18 stayed here on Nov 9, 2013 during their trip titled: Williamsburg Weekend .
We woke up this morning, and had breakfast at 11am at the Waffle House in Lexington, VA. It was a singularly unpleasant experience, as the light in the bathroom was broken. Trying to take a disabled teenager to the bathroom in the dark is an experience I would rather not repeat. The food was good, but the service left much to be desired, and I …

Historical Traveler Reviews Kingsmill Resort Williamsburg
My husband and I just returned from The Kingsmill Resort. You are treated like Kings and Queens.
The newly remodeled room was wonderful.
Service excellent, room cleaned to perfection.
We ate in the Bray Dining Room for breakfast daily and the service and food were beyond our dreams. The food is outstanding.
Every inch of the resort is beautiful, service outstanding and food delicious.
A exceptional place to stay and visit.
We loved every minute
My wife and I stayed at Kingsmill during memorial day weekend of 2004 and we loved every minute of it. The room was newly renovated and very cleaned. The staff was nice and very helpful. Even the residents were very nice and friendly. We also rented bikes and rode around the bike trail. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this resort to anyone.
We just returned from 4 nights at Kingsmill. We had a package that included unlimited access to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg, shuttle service, breakfast every morning and suite accomodations. We were blown away by the suite, the cleanliness and the staff. The suite was newly renovated, beautiful and very CLEAN. We ate breakfast our first morning at Eagles- order off the menu- included in the package.
Your room ready in a minute - 4 hours later bad room
arrived 3pm. told room would be ready at 4pm. at 4pm told just a few more minutes. at 5pm, just a few more minutes, please wait nearby. gave them my cell phone number. at 7pm still no call. went to desk. the room is ready. room not designed for woman (or man). Bathroom has no counter space. Closet is postage stamp. No drawer space - i'm glad i'm not staying long. no window coverings in the kitchen. living room nice.
access to spa bad. view of parking lot. bedroom faces street. this is a primo resort and we paid primo prices (380) for a suite. Sofar, not good!!!
restaurant (eagle) was good. because of delay on entry, I wasn't able to play golf - can't tell you if the course is good.
A lot of money for not much
A lot of money for a disappointing stayRun down accommodations and an AC system unable to cool the room to a sleepable temperature. Moved to a new room which had the same problems.
We have stayed at the Kingsmill Resort 3 times. The first two times were fine, but this last stay was very disappointing. This resort is advertised as one of the best and it was far from it. We stayed in a suite the first two times which was very nice. We decided to stay in the guest room this time and found it to be almost too small to navigate. The rooms are certainly not soundproof. Upon check-in, the front desk neglected to give us any information except directions to our room. Schedules and places for the shuttle bus had changed from the year before which caused a few problems. Guest service in our room was terrible. Upon arrival, we had no glasses, ice bucket, enough towels, no ashtray in a smoking room, etc. It took a few hours to get glasses, and towels. It took two days to get an ice bucket. The ice bucket was never emptied and the old water was never poured out. One day our room was never touched. It was not cleaned and the beds were not made. The facility itself is very nice, however, for a first class resort, it does not deserve it's ratings.
We just got back from a 6-day stay at Kingsmill resort and had very nice time.
We just returned from a 4 day stay at the Kingsmill property and I must say it was well worth it. I was able to get a free upgrade to a 1-bedroom unit, which was very useful with 4 children. The accommodations were very spacious. I am a graduate of the College there and have been to many properties in Williamsburg on a number of visits.
After much research to find a nice golf/spa resort to have a nice getaway weekend within driving distance of Philadelphia we settled on the Kingsmill Resort and Spa/Williamsburg,VA. We made a booking on the 2 night getaway package for 2 for $459.00 total + 8 1/2 % tax This package includes 2 night stay, full breakfast including tip, and a 3 day park hopper pass good for Busch Garden and the water park. We check into the Kingsmill on Friday morning and were immediately impressed with the immaculate landscaping and the beautiful lobby of the resort. It put my fears of a 'bad hotel' at ease right away. The front staff was very polite and helpful. I upgraded my room to a suite for an additional $99.00 per night. The suite was nice, not world class by any means but nice, Colonial décor with kitchen, dining area, couches and chair with an armoire and TV, nice bedroom with down comforter and pillows. We ate breakfast at Eagles and as I said anything on the menu was included in the package. Our server both days were very nice. After breakfast we went to the outside pool area which I was concerned about because there were no pictures of the outdoor pool on the website. The pool was very nice, plenty of lounge chairs, pool bar, and view of the river. There is a nice indoor pool for winter time as well. After that we went to the workout center and that was very impressive. At night we went to the 'Deck at the Marina' beautiful views of the James River with entertainment and beverages of your choice (beer drinkers have no choice but Anheiser Busch products) we settled for Michelob Ultra which was good. We ate dinner at Eagles which is a Steak and Chop house at night, very nice setting overlooking the golf course and a very nice meal. After dinner we went upstairs to Moody's tavern, now if your going to Williamsburg for the nightlife find another destination. Moody's had a bad lounge act with 6 patrons in there on Friday and Sat night. Cool place pool tables, fireplace dance floor, but bad entertainment. Went to Busch Gardens Saturday night, the resort offers a shuttle every 2 hours to and from the park which is less than a mile away. The resort also has 3 championship golf courses and 1 executive course Bray Links. My wife and I played Bray Links both days we were, gold and clubs are included for resort guest at Bray Links. This is the best pitch and put course I ever seen, immaculate condition for a course that promotes family play for fun. All in all we had a great time and would defiantly go back. Although I would not probably upgrade to the suite again. Hope this helps, good luck! 4 of 5 stars
We have been to the Kingsmill resort two times in the past three years. We love the Williamsburg area, and the Kingsmill area, but we will not be returning. Both times we had a lot of trouble with the room being clean. We love the area, the on sight restaurants, the golf, renting bikes, etc. But the restroom was so nasty, I just can't bare to return. We complained to the staff, the rooms had not been cleaned before our arrival. I figured someone just missed it, that it would be cleaned the next day. The toilet looked like it had not been touched in several weeks, and with two small children, I didn't want them to touch anything. The bathrooms were never swept and the showers never cleaned. The floors weren't cleaned in other parts of rooms either. We complained and mid week, someone actually wiped off the top of toilet. but missed the disgusting sides and back. It was terrible, and we let them know were were checking out early. We were even offered a free night to stay, but turned it down, we don't live like that at home and especially don't want to pay a lot to live like that away. We love the Williamsburg area and want to return several times, but are now looking for another place to stay. Kingsmill did no follow-up, and considering we were returnin customers and had so many problems we were very disappointed. The love the resort, but two bad experiences have destroyed any hope of it getting better. The room was gross, worse than any place we have ever stayed, cheap or expensive.
