The decor is a bit out of date, but this is a really nice place to stay. Very clean and central, with great views out across over the water. Great breakfasts too. A pleasant surprise and very reasonably priced.

You can't get much closer to the water than this. Just feet from the beach walk in Yorktown. Clean, comfortable and great views. Priced reasonably. Normal amenities. I would do this again. Yorktown Pub just down the street was a great place for dinner and beverages.

We were in for a wedding and our room was clean and the views are great! The room, however, needs some updating, and a table out on the balcony would be nice. Friendly staff and a great location! We did not eat the restaurant, but we did buy a bottle of wine for our room, and it was fair price.

Reasonable price for a clean room! Restaurant and pubs in walking distance, not many stores close so pack a cooler or ask some places have on/off ABC license just coat more. Nice areas around to walk along the beach. The rooms are a bit dated but very clean, stayed in room 203.

Great location, okay price...BUT: We were celebrating a special event and stayed in a hot tub upgraded room. We got into the tub to relax only defined we were covered with yellowish-brown scum. I am not squeamish, but it was one of the most disgusting things I've seen in a hotel, particularly for the price. We took photos to show... More

This motel is a bit dated but very clean and the staff are wonderful! You can't beat it for location. We were in town for a High School reunion and it was so fun to see how the area has grown. Our room faced the beach and we slept with the patio door open so we could hear the seagulls.... More

The hotel is across the street from the river and allows you to be in the middle of all the action on the River Walk. The hotel was clean and priced at a good rate. We had a great view across the river and enjoyed our stay.

This location is lovely...the hotel itself shows some wear, but not enough to deter us from staying for the second time. I can forgive some of the little things. We loved the area, the walkways, shops, restaurants. The hotel is overpriced, but, hey, it's a resort area! We've stayed in worse for more! Had breakfast in the restaurant...excellent. Would stay...

The hotel while it could use a face lift was very nice. The location could not be beat. It was right in the heart of Historic Yorktown, right on Yorktown beach. I would definitely stay there again given the chance. The restaurant is great for breakfast but way over priced for dinner, so look for other options.
