We drove up to Newport area to meet our daughter who is coming from Kodiak Island Alaska to A school w the Coast Guard here in Yorktown. We didnt known where to stay really and stumbled across the Duke of York Hotel. The website was inviting & prices more than reasonable for a beach front stay. Yorktown is a small... More

This hotel receives 4 stars not because it is high end but because it is a good old-fashioned "mom and pop" type of place. It's clean and adequate with an out standing view. For those of you with children, I'd recommend the 4th level rooms as they have green space right outside your door that is large enough to throw... More

We spent two night here this past weekend, gorgeous views, clean rooms and the staff is awesome! We left our headlights on and the battery died in our car! The manager gave us a jumpstart. Over and above the call of duty! Highly recommend.

We spotted this place on a previous visit to Yorktown and agreed it would be a perfect place to stay on our next visit. We requested a water view and got it, on the 2nd floor. Our balcony was great for a nightcap, looking at the beach and enjoying the evening air. Breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was great and... More

Spent a few days here on a business trip to Yorktown. Hotel is located in historic Yorktown and walking distance to all the history of where our country started. The place is clean cozy and right on the water. Soft beds and large rooms. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Yorktown.

We were attending a wedding at the Freight Shed a cross the street and this was recommended by the wedding party. I thought I would shop around but it's the only hotel nearby. For the price it is great. $119 a wknd night at the end of March. It's definitely a motel with outside entrance but our room had a... More

Needed to be in this town for one night and this was recommended. A pleasant surprise, from check in to check out, the personnel we encountered were gracious and helpful. This is more motel than hotel and the furnishings reflect same. However, the room was immaculate and the only complaint we have is that the heater made a cock a... More

The decor is a bit out of date, but this is a really nice place to stay.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.
