After considering some of the B&Bs in town I eventually settled on the Hotel Cape Charles. While the B&Bs looked a little stuffy to me, the hotel looked modern and spacious, and it turned out to be exactly that. The lobby was open and airy and beautifully decorated while the room itself was perhaps the largest hotel room I've ever... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2015 via mobile

Stopped here for a one night stay on our way from NC to NJ, and so happy we found this gem. I LOVE the decor and style. It's modern but still very welcoming and very unique from any other place I've stayed. You can tell plenty of care was taken to make it special. The bed were comfortable and the... More

This hotel is lovely. The room we stayed in had wooden floors and was kept very clean and very nice. Continental breakfast is included, which was adequate and delicious, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negatives I'll give here are administrative: that they were very strict on the 3 pm check-in time, and their cancellation policy... More

Thanks so much for your nice review! Very glad that you approved of the excellent work of our housekeeping group and of the light breakfast fare. We are indeed full almost all nights in summer, and so, like all other properties in Cape Charles, we need adequate time to clean, very thoroughly, all rooms before check-in. Some establishments launder only... More

Pros: Great location walking distance to shops and restaurants. Great shallow beach nearby. Cons: Room 8 has extensive water damage. Unfortunately tv didn't work during our stay. We were told the town was out but this was untrue because lobby tv was fine. Cannot get triple a discount upon check in only through internet booking. Breakfast was minimal. In a... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We were not able to honor your request for refund for the television issue at checkout, as we had not inspected the television set, which was functioning normally during quality control just before your check-in. On inspection that morning, the television set had been disabled, perhaps accidentally, but is functioning... More

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for a quiet little mini-vacation. If you want an alternative to the beach crowds and traffic, this is the perfect coastal retreat. Very comfortable with quality amenities. Walkable "downtown" with shops, pub, and ice cream and only 2 short blocks to the beach. Would love to see them offer an evening... More

We love your adjectives! Walkable, quiet, coastal, and perfect (twice!). Those of us on staff who grew up here, and those who moved here, sometimes forget to treasure all of these aspects of Cape Charles. We do regularly gather at the beach, and in the evenings at Brown Dog Ice Cream and local watering holes, and we agree that those... More

This hotel was so nice! With it's central location it was easy to walk to just about anything. The staff was super nice and extremely accommodating!

We have stayed at this hotel for a number of summers now. We have graduated from sharing a garden suite with our two little kids to now having Two separate rooms. This hotel is lovely, furnishings are quietly elegant, beachy but never kitschy. The beds are amazingly comfortable, and made in nearby Norfolk! The bathrooms have all been spacious. The... More

This is a contemporary hotel on a street across from the railroad tracks so not the most picturesque setting but on the street there are cafes, art galleries and interesting shops. The hotel offers complimentary coffee and cold breakfast items. The room was small but clean and had a balcony overlooking the street. The staff was attentive and friendly.

Thank you very much for the kind review! We agree that "picturesque" might not be the optimal adjective for the town's working harbor! A snapshot on our website lets potential guests know exactly what to expect, and we find that after a few visits, guests often come to appreciate the mix of activities visible from the south side of the...
