Every room has an ocean view! Lovely! The hotel is a GREAT weekend getaway. Pool, restaurant, ocean views, and boardwalk. Only one small issue with parking; off site lot once front lot is full. Also, be sure to bring your own coffee and fixings.

My husband found The Capes Hotel based on the reviews and rating on TripAdvisor. We stayed in April when we were in town for a conference. We had the queen suite with a whirlpool. Our room was renovated and updated, I've read the reviews stating that the rooms are outdated. We also had a kitchenette in the room which was... More

Picked the capes based on trip advisor reviews after the sea gull where we stayed for years was torn down. To say the least I couldn't have been any happier. I'm only sorry we did not find the capes any sooner. The reviews here were accurate. While the hotel has traditional decor, its employees, rooms, view, cafe, parking and price... More

We were there last weekend of June 2015 for 3 days and 2 nights. We booked it last minute and they were full but we got accommodated and got the double room. Staff are very friendly and helpful as to where to go about for good food, cool places to visit and what to do around town. Good size kitchen... More

I selected this hotel based upon reviews on this forum and was Very pleased. I asked for a high floor and got a corner room on 7! The counter area and refrigerator had a drawer and storage and provided a separate area from the wash basin. The room contained two chairs and a small table which was nice for late... More

The Capes is an outdated, musty hotel - with ZERO amenities. 1) The beds are EXTREMELY SMALL - they are advertised as full size, but they feel smaller. 2) They have limited on-site parking. What they don't tell you, during check-in, is they have off-site parking - that is approximately a block away & it's in 2 poorly lit lots.... More

Everyone in the hotel is very friendly. We arrived early & our room was not ready but they did take our number & called us when it was. The room was a good size but dated with older furniture & lamps. The BR was VERY small & dated. The vanity was separate & large. The towels were thin & rough.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for five days and really enjoyed it. We loved being right on the beach and having a balcony facing the ocean. Our room was clean and spacious. The hotel cafe has a great view of the beach, good food, reasonable prices, and friendly staff. The concierge was also very friendly and gave us excellent... More

I have stayed at Virginia Beach oceanfront hotels often. Most of the hotels are very old buildings that have been renovated. Some better than others. You have to understand that they often smell of the sand and the sea... a little damp. But that is just part of the atmosphere. You also need to make sure that some big event... More

Hotel was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. All rooms face ocean; I believe all have balconies. Room well equipped - extra outlets on desk, microwave, refrigerator, bar sink. Shower and toilet area very small but nice counter and sink area. Our room had large jetted tub. Staff was friendly and hrlpful. Can be noisy in morning since there seems... More
