We were tired and figured we would spend the night before
driving over the bridge/tunnel to Norfolk. Big mistake. Four miles north of bridge we found a brand new motel-2 levels. No cars in parking lot . Believe name "Cape Motel". Asked for room at 5:00 PM and was told $169.00 a night--told them they were crazy and moved down RT 13 to this place.
Again, nobody in the rooms. EMPTY. Looked at room (had trouble finding it because most rooms had no numbers on door) and said ok. When asked, the desk clerk gave us 10% off for AAA $79.00 a night. Also got a free breakfast at "Al's" at the end of the lodge.
Tired we crashed. TV had several cable stations and some actually could be watched! Good news we could not see the convention. Room/bed was passable
Desk clerk was trying to have us not rent a room and strongly suggested we could get cheaper rooms across the bridge--she was right.
Got up in the AM and NOBODY else was staying there. Went to
"Al's "and it was closed.
We should have gone the additional 22 miles across the Chesapeake.
