This is the perfect hotel to stay in if you're visiting Yorktown beach due to its locality. It's not updated, so don't expect perfection, but it's clean and a great place to rest your head after a day in the sun. The few restaurants it has close by has great food. The hotel has a great restaurant as well. If... More

My husband and I made a last minute reservation here on the morning December 28. This was our first visit to Yorktown and I wanted a room nearby, not 20+ minutes away in Williamsburg. The Duke of York Motel was perfect! The hotel sits just across the street from the beautiful York River, and along a lovely sandy beach. The... More

We stayed at the Duke of York Hotel for a brief 2 days in July. We had an amazing experience and the staff was more than helpful. It was a great break from the crazy crowds at Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks. We look forward to making this a great tradition for us. We enjoyed the restaurants and the... More

We chose this motel because it is recommended on the USCG groups as a nice place to stay for A school graduation. I made reservations online several months before graduation and never received an email confirmation. I printed up the screen shot of the confirmation but it somehow got left behind. The motel overcharged us over $40 from the price... More

The area and history are beautiful. The hotel is in dire need of some upgrades and possibly new management. The caretaker, Vivian, could use some customer service training to better deal with the clientele.

Although a little reluctant because of the outside of the building, I pulled in anyway because it seems like the views would be good. The bedrooms look slightly dated, however they were in perfectly clean condition. It almost had a retro feel. The view from room number 502 was amazing. I love the older feel of the hotel, that your... More

If you want a great location on a beach that hasn't been commercialized this is the place for you. It is an older style hotel but clean and comfortable. The on sight restaurant makes it convenient to wake up, run a comb through your hair and go get food. Each staff member at the Duke of York was very pleasant... More

We've been here before, and really appreciate the location/parking, especially for Yorktown Day. It's more a motel than hotel, as many rooms are accessed from the exterior walkway. This makes it a little noisy when people pass with luggage carts. Also the aging ac/heat system is very noisy, enough to wake you up during the night whenever it goes on.... More

The room had a great view and was a very good size. I loved the fact that I could park there and walk all over Yorktown. The front desk staff was incredibly nice. I would absolutely stay here again. It was hard to control the temperature--it was hot and I couldn't figure out how to turn down the heater in... More

This is an older, Mom and Pop run motel, right on the beach in Yorktown. Everyone we dealt with was very nice, parking right in the front door, and the balcony rooms have great views of the river and bay. It's not a fancy resort, and I'm sure never claimed to be. We loved the whole visit to Yorktown, and... More
