We've been going to Virginia Beach for years and usually stay at a different hotel each time. After staying at The Capes, we will definitely be returning to this hotel. We arrived a few hours early and Laurie at the front desk was so accommodating. We were able to park in their parking lot and used the facilities to change... More

My first time staying at the Capes Hotel and I will stay there again. The staff was extra friendly and helpful and the location if fantastic. It has a small restaurant that you can order breakfast and lunch and it's also a block from McDonald's. I enjoyed my view from my balcony as well. As I said earlier, the staff... More

This was our first time at this hotel. Since we stayed three days on the week before Labor Day, I had to pick a hotel that the rates were reasonable. My husband and I really liked the hotel. The staff were all friendly and the guests we rode up on the elevator were all friendly too. The location is great.... More

Stayed there last year on our 1st trip to VB, was such a good experience that we came back this year....and will be back on future vacations. Family oriented... No partying to keep you up at night...which seems to be an issue for surrounding hotels....very nice/helpful staff....clean rooms...great value too.

We stayed at the Capes from 7/28-8/4/2014 and it was wonderful! We were on the 8th floor and enjoyed the 20th street fireworks from our balcony as they were right in front of us. We had a standard room and it was the perfect size for two people- I would opt for a larger room if taking kids- the bathroom... More

This hotel is not a chain so the staff was a bit more personable. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The room was great and right in the middle of the Boardwalk, convenient to everything. You can go right out to the beach or sit on your terrace and people watch. The only negative I can think of is that the... More

I stayed at Capes Hotel for 2 days from 8/16-8/18. We arrived in The Capes before check-in time and the front desk agent advised she would give us a call as soon as the room was available. She called a short time later which was very nice. At check-in I was provided hotel info (wi-fi, parking pass, etc), area info,... More

The location is perfect. Rearview is the ocean. Front view are shops and entertainment. The hotel is nice and clean. The elevators and stairwell sre clean. The indoor pool is in a great location. The rooms are clean and staff are friendly. I like the fact that the hotel is small, not overwhelming with a lot of people.

There was nothing bad, per se, about the Capes when we stayed in June. It's just lackluster and tired, like they stopped trying to be nice in the 1980s. The lady at the desk was rude, though. She acted like our wanting to know info about the area was seriously inconveniencing her.

We were extremely pleased with our vacation experience at The Capes Hotel. The hotel is a small, family oriented hotel. The room was clean, beds very comfortable, and you can't beat that oceanfront view! The housekeeping staff was friendly and very efficient, going out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant. Security is visible, and someone staffs... More
