Loved staying at this hotel! It's small, very clean, with super helpful staff (they are quiet in the mornings when you tiptoe down to get a cup of coffee, but chatty when you need help figuring out what to do in the area :). Great location, about 2 and a half blocks from the public beach. Very clean rooms and... More

We've been so happy with our stops in Cape Charles and this trip did not disappoint! What a lovely, bright and comfortable room we had at The Hotel Cape Charles. Loft 17 was perfect for our one night stay as we drove from NY to the Outer Banks. Ned greeted us in the open lobby and within minutes we were... More

As someone who is used to staying in standard hotel rooms, this was a different ending joinable experience for me me. This small hotel is located in the town of Cape Charles. It is a place where there is nothing much to do and we were there for a wedding. The reservation process was quite easy and we were surprised... More

We are so very glad you were pleasantly surprised and slept so well! All mattresses and toppers and pillows come from a company just across Chesapeake Bay, in Norfolk, Virginia. The name of the company is Cozy Pure. They use no chemicals in the manufacture of their all-natural 100% certified organic cotton and pure wool products. There are no fillers,... More

The hotel looks like no other. It is quaint, extremely comfortable, the service is really friendly, it is in a great location in the adoable little town of Cape Charles. We were driving north to Maryland and thought Virginia Beach was way too tacky and crowded and tried Cape Charles. It is quiet and friendly. An old family resort. I... More

Merci beaucoup! It was lovely to chat with you, our first guests from the remarkable city of Toulouse! The southern parts of France are so splendid, and to receive praise from people accustomed to fine lodgings and incomparable cuisine is appreciated more than we can say. Your visit brought back memories of travel in Provence and the Pyrenees - it... More

What a delightful place to stay in the sleepy beach town. Our room Loft 17 was spacious nicely decorated with the old (Brick Walls) and new (overly comfy bed and linens) The staff was informative and caring. We couldn't have picked a better place to go to relax and decompress!!

Ned B, General Manager at Hotel Cape Charles, responded to this review

We have a confession to make: Room 17 is a staff favorite as well! It has the urban feel of a loft apartment but is still cozy (and no kitchen means no one feels the need to 'eat in'!). We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you guys can come back again; the autumn is a beautiful time... More

This boutique hotel in the charming eastern shore of Cape Charles is clean, the hosts are the most accommodating and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The linens are above average and they do provide a quality continental breakfast. Everything is within walking distance, a nice beach area, boardwalk, artists shops, dining. It is SMALL and QUAINT. No party... More

"Shake off the city" might become our new mantra - thanks for that phrase! We who live in Cape Charles love to visit cities, but we definitely understand why people come stay for a bit, to relax and recharge. We're glad you were able to hit the 're-set' button during your visit! Come back any old time. More

Hotel Cape Charles is an amazing hotel. No cookie-cutter rooms here: our huge room had a bedroom, living room and full kitchen. Our friend's room across the hall was similarly large. The wood plank floors and brick outside wall gave the room a beautiful rustic look and feel. The only thing I didn't like was the "long" walk from the... More

We were looking for quick get away to somewhere quiet near a beach...This is the place. A wonderful hotel with staff that go out of their way to be helpful.

We thank you kindly for your very generous review. We do aim to please, but truthfully the town's restaurants, shops, and beach do most of the pleasing! Our little 'elevator' is on the north face of the hotel, a Garaventa Genesis Lift, and it's a humble but serviceable lift. It reminds us of Paris, both because Paris has many similar... More

Beautiful hotel - we stayed in a loft room, and from the wood floors to the wood counters to the room decor, all were top notch. The loft room was very roomy. Only complaint was the website says it has a "full kitchen." We came prepared to make our own pizzas, but were surprised that there was no oven. The... More

We are sorry about the misunderstanding regarding the oven, but we were glad that you were able to salvage the pizza on the range top. It's important to note here that when you booked your room online, you clicked the word "Select" after reading the following very explicit description of Room 20 and its contents: "Our only second-floor room with...
