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The decor is a bit out of date, but this is a really nice place to stay.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

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
