My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at The Capes in Virginia Beach. The hotel location is very nice centrally located near everything. The ocean is steps away out the backdoor and tons of beach shops are steps away from the front door. A room with a whirlpool tub is an absolute must. It was so relaxing after a... More

We spent a week at the Capes in Virginia Beach. We brought our entire family. It was a great experience. The entire staff was fantastic, very personable. The rooms are very clean. It was great having a little kitchen area. If you want to be in the center of everything on the Boardwalk, this is the place to stay!! And... More

I want to thank the staff at The Capes for their wonderful service! While traveling with our ailing mother, your staff went out of the way to make her stay as comfortable as possible! Stacy even got us a chair with a higher back out of another room. Debbie was so sweet wanting to do anything she could to make... More

We picked this hotel because of reviews and we were not disappointed. We thought that the hotel was really easy to find and parking was convenient. We arrived a little earlier than check-in and the staff kindly accommodated us. We were impressed with how clean all of the areas of the hotel were especially with the amount of people and... More

It has been a few years since I have been to the Capes. It is centrally located on Atlantic and all rooms are ocean front. I was traveling with extended family for a cousins weekend. We were in a two room suite 408. The one thing that is great about the Capes is that the suite will sleep 6. The... More

I reserved a king suite with whirlpool for July 4th weekend spend almost $1000 for three days so we were expecting a huge nice room... It's a nice room but small, for the price I won't be staying at this hotel even if it's on the beach better options out there

Picked The Capes after reading many reviews on TripAdvisor. Location of this hotel is excellent. Rooms are oceanfront and we had a corner suite which made it even better. You were oceanfront and could look around the corner of your balcony and see the "strip". Only moved our car once during our entire stay. Trolley stops about every 15 minutes... More

As it turns out, the Capes hotel is family owned. Although I didn't know that when I made my reservation, I felt it throughout my stay. The hotel was rather small and intimate, which I loved. I traveled with my two grandchildren and did not feel overwhelmed by the size. I was not afraid that my children would get lost... More

We just needed a room overnight, and living 1,200 miles from the nearest beach, we wanted to be able to see and hear the ocean from our room. I had already checked TripAdvisor for location (right on the boardwalk) and prices. It was Monday night of Memorial Day weekend, and we didn't have reservations, but that was not a problem.... More

We decided at the last minute to leave Nags Head and visit Virginia Beach. We chose this Hotel because of price and location.Very friendly staff, clean rooms, indoor swimming and located right on the boardwalk.
