The Charlotte Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 6 Onancock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 20, 2011

We had a wonderful stay at The Charlotte Hotel. The room and bed were comfortable; the decor pleasing. The owners, Charlotte and Gary, were very gracious and friendly and made us feel welcome. We had a delicious dinner and would recommend the sheepshead (sea bream) and almond crusted chicken. The potato-carrot cake with the fish and the lime scented spoonbread with the chicken were perfect accompaniments to our meal. Breakfast is complimentry to guests and very good. We decided on the scrambled eggs and bacon; Belgium waffles, fruit, yogurt were other choices. We enjoyed a short walk near the hotel and browsed the nearby shops.

We decided to do an overnight stay at the Charlotte Hotel on our way to the Outer Banks from PA. Our night at the Charlotte turned out to be better than anything waiting for us in the Outer Banks. The hotel is a gem in a gem of a little town. The room was cozy, immaculate, quiet, and the bed was to die for. The included breakfast was perfect. We also enjoyed dinner in the restaurant, and it was way beyond any of our expectations. The decor setting, service and food - some of the best we ever had. The service at both hotel and restaurant is excellent. We never heard the word 'no.' All our requests were met without a hint of hesitation. You may not believe so, but Oanancock, Virginia and the Charlotte Hotel and Restaurant should be on go-to list.

We love this hotel. This was our second visit and we liked it even more. Everything was neat and so clean! The owners couldn't have been friendlier and the food was excellent.
The mattresses are so comfy - we slept so well.
There are nice artistic touches throughout as the wife is an excellent artist which made the place very inviting.
Can't wait to go back there next year!!

Room Tip: The rooms are small but very adequate - we loved it.

I've stayed at the Charlotte three or four times and each stay has been perfect. The rooms are charming, clean, and show the artist's touch, as does the entire hotel. Owners Gary and Charlotte make newcomers feel welcomed; the small bar offers a friendly place to have a drink; and the restaurant is excellent. On my most recent visit, I had locally caught flounder that was probably the best seafood dinner of my life. I have no connection with the owners or the hotel, other than being a guest there, but I have to say that if you want a charming, European-style, anti-Ramada experience, you cannot go wrong by staying at the Charlotte.

We spent a night here on our way down the DELMARVA peninsula to Va Beach. We had a reasonable rate for parents in one room and children in another. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms very nice. We strolled down to the marina and through shops in town--all within minutes of the hotel. Gary was extremely accommodating and made the best gin martini that I have sipped in a while. Dinner was fantastic--as was breakfast the next morning. This is a great find on Va's Eastern Shore.

This is the second summer that we have left our own small Chesapeake Bay town of Urbanna to venture across the Bay for a visit to Onancock and the Charlotte Hotel. Both times it was one of the highlights of our summer! Greeted by friendly faces and a mint julep served in a pewter cup, we settled in and prepared for our dinner at the Charlotte Hotel's restaurant. Delicious! Local soft shell crabs were the highlight of our meal. After a very comfortable night of sleep, we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and a mimosa before walking around town and then boarding our boat to head home. I feel bad that we do not try other establishments in town because they all look so good....but the Charlotte Hotel has won us over and I am already looking forward to visiting again next summer!

Location couldn't be better. If you prefer original art, beautifully painted walls and old wood floors to std hotel art and wall-to-wall, you'll love this. As guests, we felt that our every need had been creatively anticipated.
Our only complaint is that we were promised twin beds but had to take a double which was too small and soft for stiff, old backs.
Restaurant is excellent.

Room Tip: Ask about room size if that's important.
