We stayed at the Shore Stay Suites for the first time during a quick Father's day weekend getaway. Our regular hotel was full due to the Tall Ships in Cape Charles.
I can't say enough nice things about this hotel, it will definitely be our hotel of choice going forward. It is ideally situated between Kiptopeke State Park & Cape Charles. The rooms are large and extremely clean (no fusty moldy smells like most beach hotels) & they have full size kitchens. The building has wide porches for sitting and soaking up the views of the fields and trees, and is positioned at a right angle to the highway, almost completely nullifying the noise. Once inside the rooms are quieter than your average hotel, and have every amenity you could need, with the exception of a hairdryer. The owners are extremely helpful, kind and gracious. Shore Stay Suites is by far the best option on the lower Eastern Shore.

Crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge heading north to find the Shore Stay Suites. Spacious room with the extra amenities (large bath, full kitchen, cable, free wifi) plus an adirondack chair out front to enjoy the peaceful view. Nice, informative, friendly inn keepers. Just down the road from Cape Charles Historic community.

My girl friend and I stayed here with my boat for a getaway/fishing trip. This place was so much more than I was expecting including a friendly couple who did an exceptional job managing the hotel and making sure we were happy comfortable. The rooms were very clean and big. It felt like I was the first person to stay at a new hotel. We were very pleased with our stay and will certainly come back again. Thanks for the hospitality.

I passed this area last year and noted the Shore Stay Suites looked like a great place to stay and it did not let me down. The room was awesome. It is spacious, bright and clean. The Kitchen is roomy and has a full size refig.. It is perfect for a family of 4 or a fishing outing headquarters. It is 4 miles from Cape Charles and only 6 miles from the State Park boat ramp that provides easy access to the fishermans Island area. We stayed there May 27 and 28, 2013 during a our Kayak fishing trip and it worked out perfect. Plenty of room to turn around with the Kayak trailer. For those pulling a boat, there is room for you to turn around by backing your trailer up on a grassy area just prior to entering the main parking lot. There is a Food Lion just 3 miles to the north. I highly recommend this stay if you spend the night in Cape Charles.

Room Tip: It is all good.

My son and I were en route back to New England from college in South Carolina. We wanted to enjoy the scenery along the way and decided to go by way of the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Cape Charles is a scenic little village at the southern end of the Delmarva Peninsula. We knew we would be arriving late at night, so we looked for a place that would be easy to find, convenient to both the Bay Bridge/Tunnel and the village of Cape Charles and reliably clean and comfortable. We found it all when we arrived at the Shore Stay Suites on the Lankford Highway. Arriving at midnight, we quickly got our key and walked into an immaculately clean and fresh room. By 12:15 we were sound asleep, each in our own large comfortable bed. We awoke completely refreshed and were pleased that the room contained a nice kitchenette where we enjoyed in-room coffee. If we didn't already have a plan to have breakfast at one of the nice cafes in town, we would have gone down the highway to the Food Lion to buy breakfast supplies and made our own breakfast in the well-appointed kitchenette. I can assure you that you won't be disappointed by the facility or the service at the Shore Stay Suites. The facility managers, Tracy and Alice, were very friendly and accessible. They are the kind of responsive and responsible people that you hope to find in every hotel, but often don't. It turned out that my son left a small personal item in the room, that arrived at our home via mail just 2 days after we got back home. Our family will be staying at the Shore Stay Suites whenever we make the trip down to the coast of Virginia. Next time we'll stay a couple of nights to make sure we relax and enjoy the historic village of Cape Charles.

Glad to hear that your son's hat arrived safely. It appeared as one that was "well worn" and would surely be missed. Looking forward to your return.

The room and kitchen was spacious and very clean. We enjoyed the picnic area and the tranquility around the hotel. The owners were very nice and friendly - very knowledgeable of the area and where to go with the kids. We had an amazing time and much had to do with having a great place to stay! The only problem was that our vacation time was too short! We'd love to return here again!
