“The true getaway weekend hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Cape Charles is a very quiet lazy town on Chesapeake Bay (at the southern tip) so it looks like the ocean and also has pretty beaches with gentle tides. Hotel Cape Charles makes this town the ultimate get away destination. Beautifully redone in a modernist style the rooms are very very attractive and comfortable. The matresses were specially made in Norfolk and are incredibly comfortable. Breakfast is included which is really part of the 5 star rating in that the granola is made by a local chef with her own honey and maple syrup from her brother in upstate NY. It is absolutely the best ever!!!. There is NO downside to this wonderful hotel. Ned,the manager oversees a great group of hotel employees. Roxy,his dog is a charming host that attracts children and adults of all ages. We will definitely go back here. Words cannot fully describe how good this place is!!

Room Tip: 13 was a wonderful suite;12 a great double

Lovely hotel. Attractive and very comfortable rooms. We stayed in Room 6 which had a little balcony. We enjoyed sitting out there and used the very nice throw from the bed to take the chill off the fall evening. Most comfortable bed I ever remember staying in. Would highly recommend this hotel. They had a light breakfast but we opted to go the coffee shop two doors down for a full breakfast.

We selected this hotel based upon previous reviews and were not disappointed. The staff was wonderful and the accommodations lovely. Very modern design. Very comfortable. They recommended Aqua for dinner (great) and the coffee shop two doors down for breakfast (also great). Definitely the place to stay in or around Cape Charles.

I stayed at the Hotel Cape Charles for a single night in late June. They were just putting the finishing touches on what had been a two year renovation. What a wonderful design and construction job they did. I stayed in a large room off the courtyard - one level with a sitting/living room and a separate bedroom and bathroom. The room was beautifully appointed and very spacious. Everything about the Hotel Cape Charles says beauty and elegance. The innkeeper, Ned goes out of his way to insure the comfort of his guests. No doubt this is now the destination hotel in Cape Charles. Can't wait to visit again!

My husband and I chose this hotel for a one evening couple's get-away for an odd reason--we wanted to try out the mattress. We are considering the purchase of a Cozypure latex mattress and saw on the Cozypure website that these are the beds in the hotel....since we were planning a weekend away anyway we decided to try the Hotel Cape Charles and we were so glad we did.

First of all, Cape Charles is sleepy. For us, that was the point. There were several restaurants to choose from--and we enjoyed delicious food everywhere we went--all within walking distance. The beach was lovely. There is a great pier for fishing and the croaker were biting. We especially loved our evening stroll along the pier and beach as the sun set....just kissed the water in a pink glow and then was gone. This seems to be the big local attraction as many folks were out strolling...but not too many. We finished our day with homemade ice cream from Brown Dog Ice Cream and were pleased to meet the infamous "Brown Dog" who was relaxing on his golf cart while he checked on business.

On to the hotel: it was contemporary and lovely. It's sort of a surprise in this setting. It is does not really have views of water. It's views are industrial/or parking lot. But it has an inviting atmosphere and is spacious and immaculate. There were lots of nice little touches--real silver spoons for your yogurt and granola breakfast, delicious coffee, tea time, wonderful smelling spa quality soaps in the rooms, and Cozypure mattresses. The beds were so comfortable and luxurious. The staff was also fantastic...friendly when we wanted to talk and unobtrusive when we did not. All in all, we were very pleased with the Hotel Cape Charles.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening in Cape Charles and were extremely pleased with our experience at the hotel Cape Charles. The owners are extremely welcoming and the newly renovated property is more four star than small town B&B
