Stumbled upon this place and was so verry glad we did. Quaint and affordable. It was a walk back in time, and I truly enjoyed the experience. The room was immaculate, the view of the ocean spectacular, our hosts were so sweet. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Va. Beach. It is... More

May 30 - June 3 I vacationed at Cutty Sark back in 1997 with my family when I was younger. We stayed in the Cottage on the Corner of Atlantic and 37th St., definitely a vacation to remember and thought it was worth revisiting. This time we decided to stay in a Efficiency Room because it was just 2 of... More

June 1-3, 2012 My husband and I wanted to get away for a looong weekend and we happened to come across "Cutty Sark" during our Google search for places to stay.

This is a real little gem of a hotel/motel. If you're used to luxury accomodations, this might not suit you, but if you enjoy something a bit more intimate, this is the place. Mrs. Koch and Jerry were great hosts, our room was clean and had all the appliances and dishes necessary for a comfortable stay of a week (wish... More

The hotel is a little dated but it was very clean and had everything you would need to stay a few days (stove, microwave, toaster, pots/pans, silverware, refrigerator), The owners were very nice and were willing to accommodate to our needs and had great recommendations of where to go and what to do. It was worth staying here rather than... More

Being on a budget, we were looking for something within the $100 a night range close to the beach. This MOTEL is a 30 second walk to the boardwalk. Literally just walk across the street and your toes are in the sand. We were on the first floor and had a fantastic view when we looked out our huge window,... More

Took a while to write this review. My family was to stay in late August before school started check-in on Thursday and out Sunday. Irene came blasting through Friday and Saturday.

This place is a dump - plain and simple. They advertise "historic" and that is code for gross, dirty, cheap, and tacky. These cottages make "The Roper's" look like big spenders!
