We were left without a place to stay because our rental property was not available when we arrived in Cape Charles. That's when the townspeople took over and made certain that we would have a fighting chance to stay in their town at least a little while. John at the wine and cheese shop directed us to the Hotel Cape... More

An incredible gem in a tiny port. Cape Charles is tiny and sleepy in October. However the Cape Charles Hotel would fit in New York, san Francisco, or London, anytime of the year. But fits best as an oasis in Virginia.

Beautifully renovated and appointed, this modern hotel brings style and a little edge to historic Cape Charles. Our room was bright, inviting, comfortable and clean. In a nod to Southern tradition, we had a balcony overlooking Mason Street good for people-watching and for glimpses of the sunrise and sunset as well. The manager, Ned Brinkley, was attentive and informative. All... More

Whenever I visit the Eastern Shore for work, I exclusively stay at the Hotel Cape Charles. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. The hotel itself is so chic and stylish, but also comfortable and cozy. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in! Just a short walk to the beach, adjacent to delicious restaurants and shops, and... More

This hotel is so charming - I give it my highest rating. An old building with all the modern amenities. The look is very contemporary - comfortable. The staff (owners?) were welcoming and helpful. The whole experience was one that makes me hope to return. The sooner the better!

Cape Charles, near southern tip of Eastern Shore, is great place for birding, with Kiptopeke State Park & wildlife refuge nearby. Innkeeper Ned is accomplished birder who knows best local spots, including owl roosts. Cape Charles is charming, with inviting rocking chairs outside storefronts and a city pier which offers fishing without a state license. (Oystercatchers!) dine at The Shack,... More

We have to agree about the birds - the staff and I have been gathered on Mason Avenue just now, watching the Peregrine Falcons go over at about one every three minutes - a strong southeasterly wind is blowing, so they are all going over the hotel instead of the barrier islands! Thanks so very much for your good company... More

we enjoyed a short stay at this quirky hotel in a large room on the second floor with a balcony looking out on Mason Street. Everything was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are large communal areas which could be useful for groups who travel together. Children and dogs are welcome with a graffiti wall for kids... More

Thanks so much for you very kind review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay - come back and see us again soon! We do offer some rooms with in-room coffee/tea makers, but it's true that in our smallest rooms, those items are optional/by request. We have fresh coffee/tea available daily in the lobby between 6 a.m. and... More

This is a beautiful little hotel in a surprising location. Professional and accessible staff and management. Beautiful rooms. Excellent service. Although breakfast is the only meal served, even that was done well - good fresh coffee, house made granola, quality yogurt and juices. Recommended without hesitation.

How splendid to get the thumbs-up on our humble but healthy breakfast! Although homemade granola and yogurt are not everyone's cup of tea, we are glad you like them - in 2015, we hope to add a few more things to the menu! Please come back and see us again, and thank you for the kind review! More
