“This place is clean and still feels new”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Our two night stay could only be made better if we had asked for a room on the second floor. There was a loud and inconsiderate family in the room above and we could hear everything. Next morning we had to get up early, and sure enough, the kids were bouncing around before it was light!
But other than that, and the lack of drapes for the windows - the room was great. The furniture is tasteful and the beds are overstuffed and comfy, with quality linens and towels. There is flat screen cable TV and fast internet - I am using it now!
The staff is friendly and very helpful. And the room is very, very clean. We will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second (top) floor

Hotel is very nice and clean. They are under new management as of a week ago, but it was a very nice place to stay. I was under the impression that all of the rooms were suites, but that is not the case. Just an FYI. A lot of the places nearby looked very old and run down. This place does not! It is only a few miles from Bay Creek as well. The only complaint is that there were not any curtains on the windows to block the light out like most hotels, only mini blinds.

Room Tip: Make sure if you specify if you want a suite. We did not need one so it didnt matter. Just a heads...

Thanks for the response. All of our rooms do have Full kitchens and either King size Bed or 2 Queen beds.

We have changed our outdoor lighting to eliminate lights shining into the rooms (Thank you for that suggestion).

We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Great find just north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, close to downtown Cape Charles and beaches and fishing.
The place looks new (only three years old) and has new managers, we were their first guests and they had just dropped the rates as an introduction, what timing.

All the rooms have full kitchens with full size fridges, none of that mini fridge stuff there.

The place is exceptionally clean and all non-smoking. No pets either.

Has a guest laundry on site so we caught up with our washing.

Definitely a return trip to be planned :)

Room Tip: Upstairs suites are quieter and have nice views over the fields. The town does shut down early so c...

My husband and i again on vacation went to the place we like to call home. Ms. Cookie at the shore stay greeted us with open arms. The room we had was so awsome and huge. I wish i could have taken the bed home with me that bed just made me feel like i was sleeping on a cloud. This was a great experience. Rosalyn Robinson

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great !!!!!!!!

Over my spring break me and 11 other college students stayed at the Shore Stay Suites for the duration of a service project. The GM Cookie was a wonderful host and was very helpful. The rooms that we stayed in were great, and allowed all of us to relax at night after long days of serving the local community. The bathrooms where super clean and the full kitchens (with all utensils) where very helpful at night when cooking and serving dinner.
I once again have to give a shout out to Cookie, who the group called "cook-s" by the end of the trip. She was wonderful and was very good at telling the group local history as well as spots on the shore that were interesting. She was there when we needed her late at night and was always on call.

Just a heads up, Don't play wiffle ball / frisbee in the parking lot... or be very loud, cookie will get at you. She is very concerned with maintaining a good environment for all guests.

Cookie is wonderful!! She donated rooms for my service group for a week. She makes herself very available (she says she never sleeps), and she's also a modern renaissance woman who is interesting to talk to. The full kitchen is convenient and clean. Also I love those aqua chairs outside. Hot stuff.

great clean motel, stayed 07/10 & returning 07/12. Its nice to sleep in a room where there is no fish smell & bloody, soggy carpet. We go strictly there to fish for a week. We respect the motel and its owner enough not to take coolers or anything pertaining to fishing into the rooms. Anyone with any decency about them should appreciate the motels desire to provide its customers with clean facilities. I hope they keep up the good work.

Room Tip: there are very few places to stay in the area that is close to where we fish. We felt fortunate to...
