A very special place to stay in a very special town, Cape Charles is a fabulous family destination. The atmosphere at Hotel Cape Charles is warm and friendly with a sophisticated flair ~ the loft rooms are exquisitely comfortable with an amazing bed and bedding, as well as architectural character and furnishings that bring you to zen when you walk...

We loved meeting you guys and we surely do love our many Richmond-area guests - some weekends we're almost 50% Richmonders in Cape Charles, we think! If only we had ferry service to Cape Charles from Tappahannock, we could make that 100% - maybe one day! Thanks for coming and enjoying the grand small-town holiday week with us; the staff... More

The Hotel Cape Charles is the perfect beach getaway. Cape Charles is a friendly and quaint beach town with plenty to do and the Hotel Cape Charles is the perfect place to stay while you're there. Just steps away from the beach, the hotel is modern, clean and welcoming. The staff was terrific, including the friendly dog who serves as... More

A great hotel in a very cool town. Wonderful and highly recommended. Ned and Anna and staff are fabulous. The sophistication may seem a bit anachronistic for quaint Cape Charles, but this quality hotel has been the lynchpin for this this delightful historic town's revitalization. A real destination spot. Immaculate, convenient, hip, warm staff, and super dog-friendly. We live in... More

Thank you so much for your very kind words! We do hope that our expansion this year has helped to stimulate business in Cape Charles, where merchants really do value each visitor individually, as we do. And we hope to maintain the small-town spirit even as we contemplate adding a few more rooms (and cafe!) in the future. We are... More

Wonderful stay with beautiful rooms, pleasant staff, great coastal town. We were just 'passing through' and needed a place for one night. Now we wish we had planned a longer stay! Remodeled rooms with lots of quality appointments and a VERY comfortable bed. Highly recommend this place. Plus, quality light breakfast. Wow!!

So very kind of you guys to call us "a find" - after so many decades of difficulty in this tiny town, with the loss of passenger rail service and ferry service - we appreciate your praise more than you can know. Come see us on the way back and tell us stories of your travels! More

Recently had the chance to enjoy the Hotel Cape Charles, and many of the rooms it has to offer. Large family event, with a completely mixed crowd, including folks who were couples, with their kids, solo, older and younger, and everyone found something to their liking. We were all in and out of many rooms, visiting, laughing, exploring. Great public... More

We spent the night at this hotel and thought it was a lovely place. The owner was so nice and had great recommendations for places to eat in town. The night desk clerk was kind and extremely helpful - we enjoyed her gracious hospitality! Our room was large and we had a private balcony looking out at the town and... More

We are all smiling to read the word "wonderful" here on staff. We decided before we even opened the doors that we wanted to be "wonderful," so a pat on the back that includes that little word makes us all sleep well at night. Thank you, and please come back by and see us and tell us what you have... More

Can't say enough about the comfortable hotel, about wonderful Ned and about sweet Roxy. My husband and I and our dear friends and their dog Sailor had a fantastic 2 night visit. We hated to leave. As most of the reviews indicate, the decor is artsy, modern and whimsical. Our room was huge and spotlessly clean...the bed and pillows so... More

Aw shucks - we miss you guys too! Rox is still sniffing around for Sailor, and we still have the drawing up on the white wall in the flex space. We got such a nice chuckle seeing the lipstick on his nape. Please come see us again, even if you're just passing by - we have nice clean lobby bathrooms,... More

Glowing TripAdvisor reviews attracted us to the Cape Charles Hotel. High ratings and high prices lead to high expectations, which were not met. Without an elevator or dumb waiter to lift luggage to the second floor, we should have traveled backpack light to avoid inconveniencing the busy receptionist. Walls between rooms transmit normal conversation levels. Continental breakfast offerings are not... More

Hi folks - We are so sorry that you missed out on our memorable little elevator! We are happy for anyone to use it, 24 hours, at the rear of the lobby. And everyone on staff is happy to take your bags up for you, either by elevator or up the stairs. Our guests are all valued, so no worries... More

Hotel Cape Charles was recommended to us by another hotel we stayed at the night before as we drove up the coast from Myrtle Beach. We were thoroughly impressed by the gorgeous renovation and modernization of this 101 year hotel. It's extremely well designed, contemporary and inviting with a European flair. Ned, who manages during the day is charming and... More

What a getaway!!! My wife and I recently decided to take our last vacation, before the baby is born, in Cape Charles. I happened upon this little gem of a town in researching the perfect pre-baby, dog friendly, getaway on the Eastern Shore.
