- Karen does well shopping and picks me up just as I finish!

... it was in 1740. The good news is you can walk around this town for FREE and if you want to look in some of the heritage buildings you pay $40! As we have seen Upper Canada Village we do not pay and it is still a very nice walk. Well worth stopping here!
Back to campsite to hangout for the night and watch some more Breaking Bad.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Patriots Place Williamsburg
My family & I stayed here in May 2006 - we had a 2 bedroom lockout. The place was sparkling clean, the beds were comfortable, & everything was well taken care of. The pool was very well cared for (CLEAN) & the grounds were beautiful. I was able to do laundry for 7 people and still had enough hot water for everyone to have a hot shower!! This place was conveniently located to everything, but off the beaten path enough for peace & quiet. I was not impressed at all with the photos I had seen prior to coming, and frankly, I was leary of staying here; but I thought I would take a chance- I'm glad I did. I DID NOT have to clean a thing, just dropped my towels in a pile & stripped the bed!!! It was awesome.
We were bombarded the minute we entered the lobby. Check-in was rushed by associates that could care less about anything more than making sure they had your credit card signature. Guests were headed from one desk to another without time to think or process what was happening. They offered little gift bags with goodies so we thought we had really hit the jackpot for a place to stay. Will I never learn? We were given what seemed a wonderful though fast welcome. Boy, were we wrong! The room was ok. Nothing spectacular and greasy finger prints on all the tables were the first thing I noticed. Later that night, 9:30pm, after a 12 hour drive, we were called by the resort to ask if everything was ok and when did we want to sign up for their sales pitch. Ok they didn't call it a sales pitch but it proved to be our worst experience in 38 years of travel. We were called and harassed daily for 5 days before they finally left us alone to our vacation. All 2 days that were left of it. I have to say we had to get more than firm to have them stop calling. When we checked out we were told they usually only call twice.....guess we just got lucky. The weather turned nasty, thank goodness, we packed our bags and headed for home. As for us.....we will stay as far away as we can from anything with the Fairfield name on it.
We just returned from a week at Fairfield at Patriots Place in Williamsburg. We traded a timeshare through RCI and we knew this was at a lower trade then the one owned but we decided late and the availablity through RCI was limitted. I was prepared after reading the reviews that we were not going to be high on the resort list.
Good changes are expected here soon!
I haven't been there, but have rented this property to others, and they liked it for the price.
This property, I have learned will be going through a 3 year total renovation, because I have also learned that owners at this resort will be assessed an additional $200 -300 per year for three years to cover the cost of this renovation. So when it's all done I imagine it will be worthy of an RCI Gold Crown status.
Great location but needs updating
We spent 8 days at the unit. We found a special on the internet. Total cost for the week was $320, tax included plus $70 for the additional day. It was a one bedroom delux unit with washer/dryer, fireplace & foldout bed. Small balcony but nice. The unit was a short 5 minute drive to the Williamsburg Visitors Center. Bldgs 33 & higher seem to be in the less congested area. The unit was very clean although could use a paint touch-up and new carpets & flooring, kitchen also could use a work-over. The units were built in 1987. The staff were very friendly & helpfull. We did get 2 calls offering us a tour of Fairfield time-shares. Talking to several guests staying there seemed to get mixed results. Would we go back to the same unit?, yes. Suggestion: ask for a 2nd floor corner unit.
Just got back from Fairfield Patriots Place Williamsburg, Va.. Although it is not the newest or most attractive condo we have stayed in, I would not hestitate to stay there again..Yes, it is dated, yes the B Condos are small, but for the price (we paid $320 for a full week )it isnt bad..Our condo was a 1 bedroom (1 full size bed) pull out couch..no washer and dryer ( dont do laundry on vacation anyway..if you dont have enough clothes to get through a week, well, thats your problem..Condo was very clean, no foul smells, clean shower curtain, and just clean period. The only complaint I have is they do not allow pets. Had to board our puppy, which hurt me more than her..Dont be afraid to check this place out. Be aware that there are A and B rated condos here..Check on both...
We just returned from our first family vacation Williamsburg was great! We stayed at the Fairfield Resort Patriot Place which is an RCI property. We are not owners. For everyone reading this... If you are retired military please checkout Armed Forces Vacation Club, it offers timeshare properties w/o the hassle and expence of a timeshare. We had a one bdrm unit complete with full kitchen, laundry, dining room, living room w/ TV/VCR an extra large whirlpool tub all in our suite. The kitchen was fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils etc... The grounds were clean, with an outdoor pool, children's playground and axcess to all the other Fairfield Resorts..Kingsgate/Governor's Green. The cost for the week was $264.00! If you know someone who's retired from the military it's a friend/family plan! We did have one bad experience with the timeshare bit-but after we got our $90 for the outlet mall we let it go! The outlet mall is about a 10 min drive from the complex as well as Williamsburg and other historic attractions! Hope this helps!
Worst Time Share Ever
We have been staying in time shares across the country for 20 years and have never stayed in a place this bad. The check in staff was friendly, but the check in area was small and there was no lobby. Then, when we got to our room the stale odor was overwhelming. We had to go and buy air freshener, but that did not help. The bathrooms were old and the wall paper was peeling. The shower curtain was dirty. We were considering leaving and going back home. The next day we met with a sales counselor. He did not even try to sell us the property. He admitted it was a dump. When your own employees admit the property is a mess, it is time to make changes.
We have just returned from our vacation and let me tell you do not choose this property. It is very dated and uncomfortable. Appearences are deceiving - the first glance it looks OK but as you "live" there it gets bad....beds are lumpy and uncomfortable and very small. The master bedroom is supposed to be a queen but it is a full and the sofa bed springs were felt thru the mattress. Thank goodness noone in our family has allergies or asthma because the vents in the floors for the AC must have been used as dustpans disgusting! I must say the only good thing is the large whirlpool tub. You also get no maid service or linen change and are required to strip the beds, put all dirty linen on the kitchen floor, do all dishes, and wipe down counters before check out! We have stayed in many condo properties but were never subjected to this type of cleaning on our vacation. What a joke! Maybe we just picked the wrong property but never again.
Family vacation in July
The room was very small, one bedroom with a Queen size bed, one bathroom and the living room with a pull out sofa, also including a small table and three chairs with a tiny kitchen. There was no washer and dryer in the unit. This resort was older, but I was pleasantly surprised with how clean the room was and the decor of the outside was very nice. The outdoor pool was nice and large enough so you didn't feel crowded. The tennis court was older. You are able to use the indoor pool and other facilities at Kingsgate which is only a 3 minute drive. There was also a minature golf at Kingsgate, a game room and internet/computer use. The location is the best thing about this resort, it is close to everything. Short drive to everything.
