For the love of Americana, we chose it for the flavor of quiet, homespun Virginia Beach before the international hotel takeover. We had fun and saved money fixing clever gourmet meals in our full kitchen.

I give this a 5 star rating- excellent. This is not a five star Wyndham resort and spa 5 star, this is 5 star clean, inexpensive, eclectic, friendly, close to beach and everything else you get what you pay for 5 star. The owners and staff are friendly and courteous, the pool is small but so is the hotel. My... More

I've stayed here on and off for 22 years with my family and this motel is still a great place to kick your shoes off and relax. I stayed here for 3 weeks this year. Not a lot of extras...but a perfectly quaint place to rest your head and read and cook yourself a comfy meal and enjoy the sounds... More

At first, I was a little hesitant just because of the previous reviews and pictures. However, it's not bad at all. If you're looking for a 5-star hotel experience than this would not be it. Cutty Sark has a very home-away-from-home type of feel. We rented 3 rooms in August. I'll have to admit my favorite was the room with... More

Not at all what I expected. The bathroom was extremely small with only a sink, toilet and tub .... And no working electric outlet. In fact the entire room was lacking adequate electrical outlets. The room didn't have a clock or phone, and the television was too small for the size of the room. Also the lobby was only opened... More

A hidden Gem, just as in the 70's when I traved here with MY family. Loved sharing it with my kids. They loved being able to have breakfast and lunch in our room and not spend time finding a restaurant. Beach right across the street. Not crowded at all. Life guard on duty at entrance to Beach.

This an older building, no doubt, very clean, very basic....this is reflected in the room rate. If you need granite counters, room service and an elevator to travel three flights.....I suggest you keep looking and that creates more availability for smart travelers like me.

Stayed at Cutty Sark for first time and what a horrible experience. Now I'm not used to staying at the Hilton or any of those super expensive places but this place is a NO WAY. First look, the room was dirty; hair on the floor, in the sink and couch. There was hair on the towels and washcloths, not to... More

We stayed for a full week in the studio cottage. The place is just like walking into the 1950's, but very clean and welcoming. It's definitely not modern, but that's one of the best things about it. We loved everything about it. It was more than enough room for two people. You walk out the front door and the beach... More

The room smelled, the door wouldn't close properly, we wondered if it were locked, the towels were stained, there was a gap in the ceiling so you could see the level above and hear everything going on and you can see the outdoors through the kitchen fan! Use your hotwire to get a better last-minute deal, because this was no... More
