Stayed for a long weekend on the spur of the moment and found this nice little "hotel" right on the Yorktown Beach. I would put it in the category of motel instead of hotel since the rooms opened to the outside world and not to an interior hallway, but it does have a fairly decent restaurant and a small outdoor...

Beautiful location with a wonderful view. The room was nice and the staff was pleasant. Lots to do in the area including the historic battlefield, the beach on the York River, live Music at the Yorktown Pub, and more. Nice stay.

Second time to stay here and it was just as good as before. Its beach front, center of this historical town, walking distance to everything from eats and treats, to walking on the beach. Front desk is helpful and courteous, and we will be back I'm sure. Love the area and the history!

When visiting Yorktown I decided to stay at the Duke Of York Hotel on Yorktown beach. Sadly, my experience was a rather unpleasant one. The front desk manager Vivian was extremely rude and had a horrible attitude while checking people in, almost like she hates her job. She really should work on her customer service skills, because from what I... More

This motel has two things really going for it, stunning views of it's surroundings and a central location. It is easy to walk down the road and across the street to some little shops or take the trolley to the Yorktown Victory Center or the Yorktown Battlefield. While the outside of the motel doesn't look like much and the rooms... More

This gem of a hotel offers a one stop shop for a great value! The rooms are very accommodating and clean. The view of the York River from the balcony is beautiful and the restaurant has incredible food and service. The staff were so very helpful and down to earth. You can't go wrong by staying here. It's a sweet... More

the view was great beach with swimming and fishing less then 100 yards from the front door. staff was great and friends. rooms are clean and had no trouble with noise. the only reason they didn't get a better review from me is because for $140 with a discount we should have had a breakfast or indoor pool but that...

We booked a room for Saturday evening as a last minute girls weekend. From check-in to check-out, everything was great. Staff was friendly. The room was exceptionally clean! We were on the fifth floor, which I highly recommend. It's on the back side of the property on a hill and has an amazing view of the water. The room was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Duke Of York. Our room was clean and the view of the York river was spectacular. There were many things within walking distance. The history of Yorktown was everywhere. There was even a trolley just outside the front of the hotel that drove us through historic Yorktown.( although we could have also walked... More
