This is our 4th year staying at The Duke of York. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The Manager is a lovely woman who makes sure everyone feels welcomed. The view of the beach, river and bridge are simply beautiful. Great place to relax.

I stay here because of the location to the Yorktown Pub. I have stage here on and off for twenty some odd years and the place never changes. You have a great view of the river and the rooms are really reasonable. If you are looking for luxury this is not the place, but if you need a clean room... More

read other reviews but needed to find out for my self with out going through the stay i will say that the rooms are in need of major repair and i mean major toilets leaking ect. The mgr is very rude. It is not worth the 125.00 per night that we paid. I have had nicer rooms at comfort inns.... More

yorklady, Manager at Duke of York Motel, responded to this review

I am sorry this guest felt this way , however, I feel this review was written in retaliation for not receiving a free night stay. There was a slight problem with the toilet which was fixed in the matter of seconds. Also, as far as the motel being run down, we have family reunions that have been staying with us... More

The room reminded me of a 1970's BOQ room. The carpet was stained. I had to repair the toilet twice. The sink drained slowly. The old TV picture tube was about to fail. HOWEVER, the location and the easy access to the Yorktown battlefield and the Coast Guard station nulified some of the inconvenience . The view of the York... More

Motel is in great location for walking, seeing the water, using the beach, quaint downtown. Motel service is good, staff friendly, and restaurant outstanding. Would definitely stay there again.

This is the only motel in Yorktown so the prices are high for a motel, but if you call the hotel the prices are about $30 less than hotels.com etc. They have 2 seperate buildings but both have a great view since the 2nd building is on a hill behind the first. This hotel is full every weekend so if... More

We have had a great experience at this hotel. We were planning a very short honeymoon over Labor Day weekend, so checked out the hotel first. The young man at the desk was very helpful, even giving us ideas of things to see in the area for the few days we would be there. Check in was no problem. I've... More

I stayed at the Duke of York last weekend while attending a class reunion. My room was neat and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the view from the balcony was superb. In addition, the seafood dinner at the in-house restaurant was outstanding. I understand that the chef and manager from the old "Nick's" seafood restaurant operate the hotel restaurant... More

Every time we are at the Duke of York the rooms are very clean the pool is clean and not crowded plus the we can get to the shopping and beach without any problems because they're just across the street. Restaurant is casual and food good. Easy access to Williamsburg too.

I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the Duke of York. We were there for my daughter's wedding. The staff in the motel was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I have been to 5 star resorts and haven't enjoyed myself as much as I did here. We had the... More
