My husband and I stayed here for one night after visiting Williamsburg (short drive away). The motel is located on the river and the view from our room was wonderful. We were given a room that was renovated, so the carpet was new, along with the bedding and updated fixtures in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and it... More

We stay at the hotel frequently, the staff is always courteous and friendly. The rooms are always nice and clean. We stay mainly on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the York River. It gets busy and yes, being right on the waterfront can get noisy. Weddings pop up on the beach and the Freight Shed event venue.... More

Nice clean basic hotel that has some updates in facilities, within walking distance of three restaurants, right across from the York River and only a half mile from the beginning of the Colonial Parkway. Prices are competitive for venues with a very good location. One of a kind!!

Rather disappointing recent stay on two accounts. First, we stayed in the upper building, which had a lovely view of the York River. The rooms provide outside chairs for sitting outside on a nice evening and watching the river. However, on both nights we stayed there the rooms on either side of us turned the outside seating into parties. No... More

Needed a quick getaway, walked in, got a great King room on the AAA card for a decent price. Room was clean and quiet. Small refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave in the room. Bathroom was adequately stocked.

If you're looking for a 5-star resort, this is not the place! It is a longstanding hotel with a location you cannot beat in Yorktown. Great for a stay of a couple days and gets the job done. You'll get the bare bones here but the room was clean with a view of the river. Reasonably priced.

This is the perfect hotel to stay in if you're visiting Yorktown beach due to its locality. It's not updated, so don't expect perfection, but it's clean and a great place to rest your head after a day in the sun. The few restaurants it has close by has great food. The hotel has a great restaurant as well. If... More

My husband and I made a last minute reservation here on the morning December 28. This was our first visit to Yorktown and I wanted a room nearby, not 20+ minutes away in Williamsburg. The Duke of York Motel was perfect! The hotel sits just across the street from the beautiful York River, and along a lovely sandy beach. The... More

We stayed at the Duke of York Hotel for a brief 2 days in July. We had an amazing experience and the staff was more than helpful. It was a great break from the crazy crowds at Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks. We look forward to making this a great tradition for us. We enjoyed the restaurants and the... More

We chose this motel because it is recommended on the USCG groups as a nice place to stay for A school graduation. I made reservations online several months before graduation and never received an email confirmation. I printed up the screen shot of the confirmation but it somehow got left behind. The motel overcharged us over $40 from the price... More
