Stayed at this hotel since it gave us the best price in this area. The room was very quiet and the A/C was cold so it passed the test. The pool is very small but the hotel is only half a block from the ocean. It was nice to have a minifridge. microwave and a couple of chairs in the... More

For being an older hotel, the room was very clean and the beds and other furnishing were very comfortable. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette. Nice size to the room and the appliances were also very clean and updated. Although the efficiencies don't have access to the elevator, the staff offered to help load and unload our things.... More

We were looking for a cheap short beach trip but needed a suite with 2 beds and a sofa a possible extra room so my toddler could have a quiet space to sleep in. Booked this hotel based on that. They offer a suite with 3 separate beds (3 adults) and a small back room. Room was very nice and... More

The Royal Clipper is in a good location and the staff was pretty friendly. The room was pretty clean but the shower was extremely small as was the entire bathroom. Could hardly close the door. No extra toilet paper left in room...so ran out and had to call front desk. Bed was comfortable and had plenty of outlets. Did not... More

Thank you for your review. We have completed some nice upgrades to the guest room furnishings and amenities, unfortunately there is not space available to expand the size of the bathrooms and interior walkways would leave the room without a view. It is good to know that the bed was comfortable and the in room availability of a refrigerator, LCD... More

Great hotel!! The suites have a perfect layout I think and the price is good. The location is great with the beach being just a street cross away. You don't miss anything besides ocean view, but that's the main reason you pay so much for oceanfront. The staff are great and friendly, they came daily and asked us if we... More

PROS: good location right across street from beach access. Walking distance to stores and a few restaurants. Room was clean but small. Friendly staff and free drinks in lobby. CONS: only 1 slow elevator which staff always seems to be using. VERY small pool. parking can be a problem. Large hotel in front blocks most of the beach view. Overall... More

Thank you for your review. Our location is great for those looking to stay close to the beach and shops, but are not looking to pay oceanfront hotel prices. Clean, affordable accommodations provided with exceptional customer service is our goal. It is good to hear that you enjoyed the free refreshments in the lobby. We will look into ways to... More

Don't spend extra dollars for oceanfront hotels. Royal Clipper is right behind the oceanfront hotels, so it is really close to the beach. When we walked into the room, it smelled very fresh and very clean. Very spacious with kitchen, too. The staffs are friendly and nice. My family and I had a wonderful time. We've been to VA Beach...

It was our first time and we will definitely be back. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know. Arden and Crystal make your stay comfortable. Housekeepers are real friendly. Mam our housekeeper did a great job. This hotel should be 5 star!! Thanks everyone! :)

Pool is small but we never felt the need to use it with the beach less than a block away! Ocean Breeze water park is not very far and an easy drive. Room was fine and we have no complaints, thanks! We plan on visiting again next year
