What a dump! Critters, hair, dirt, garbage, no tv unless you enjoy watching the security cam, no food, no pool, cheap soap, shampoo, mildew and dirt in bathroom, creepy place for sure. I cannot say anything good about this dump. Its like a place you would stay in a third world country. Keep Driving.

For the money, you can't beat this place. I was not about to pay $109.00 up the road. After reading some reviews, I had to write one myself. We stayed in room 106, there were no "bugs" or any sign of them. It's not the Ritz, but it's all we needed. Older place but clean. They are working at slowly... More

If you want to sleep with the little critters then by all means make a reservation, but my advice to you is to keep on driving. Not able to sleep all nite due to the number of roaches and it was too late at nite to find another motel. bed was dirty and so was the bathroom. NO cable either.... More

(May 2011) Don’t even think about it. Recently I got stuck late in the day on Route #13 on Virginia’s Eastern Shore and decided to stay over at The Kiptopeke Inn. I’m more willing than most to suffer through a bad hotel room if the price is right -- but this one was EXPENSIVE. It was a weekday and there... More

We had read the reviews before reserving a couple nights and were a little anxious to see what had happened to the Inn we had frequented in the past. After checking in, which the staff were so helpful and pleasing, we walked around to see our room. For starters, the work that is currently going on has made an excellent... More

Stayed one night with a group that went fishing. Roaches running around. TV only picked up a few channels and they were fuzzy. Price too high. Thank goodness only in the room for 10 hours to shower and sleep. Only positive thing ...staff very friendly.

this would be top of my list of "never again"....it was advertised, first of all, as having a pool...it had a pool all right....but no water in it; two of the electrical outlets were not working, the shower curtain was full of mold, spider webs all over the front window as well as the window curtain, the upholstered headboards were...

I have stayed at the Kiptopeke Inn for the past few years when on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. As it was always just for one night, a relative and I were okay with the so-so conditions. Certainly not what I was used to staying at but it would do and never had any real problems. Our visit last week... More
