Not at all what I expected. The bathroom was extremely small with only a sink, toilet and tub .... And no working electric outlet. In fact the entire room was lacking adequate electrical outlets. The room didn't have a clock or phone, and the television was too small for the size of the room. Also the lobby was only opened 9:00am to 9:00pm, which could be a problem since we had a long drive ahead of us and we needed to leave around 8:30am.

On a positive note, the room was very clean and the staff was professional and pleasant. Parking was ok.

Sorry, you did not find the electric outlet on the medicine cabinet, wish you had asked.
Also, we find our guest leave at all times night or day and since their account is cleared in advance, their is no need to come thru the lobby. They just leave their key in their room. Even the large new Hotels are now making it possible for guest to depart easily without checking with the front desk. This saves a lot of time for the guest.

A hidden Gem, just as in the 70's when I traved here with MY family. Loved sharing it with my kids. They loved being able to have breakfast and lunch in our room and not spend time finding a restaurant. Beach right across the street. Not crowded at all. Life guard on duty at entrance to Beach.

Room Tip: Most room have balcony with view of Ocean...only two do not

This an older building, no doubt, very clean, very basic....this is reflected in the room rate. If you need granite counters, room service and an elevator to travel three flights.....I suggest you keep looking and that creates more availability for smart travelers like me.

Stayed at Cutty Sark for first time and what a horrible experience. Now I'm not used to staying at the Hilton or any of those super expensive places but this place is a NO WAY. First look, the room was dirty; hair on the floor, in the sink and couch. There was hair on the towels and washcloths, not to mention they had staines EVERYDAY even though we got new ones daily. My child shouted "ewwww mommy, this towel has blood stains on it". That was the final straw for me. House keeping bursted in our room 3 times even though we DID NOT have the cleaning sign out yet. We always put the sign up once we left, yet they still bursted in for towels. The microwave didn't work and we had no clue how to work the 1950 stove. What a mess. I'd never stay here ever again. Parking was a joke. There were maybe 9 parking spaces, 3 of which are across the street in an alley. I mean I expected so much more from this place. Please spend the extra $15 for something better. It was so dirty I made my family wear shoes while in the unit. Sad but true. The only 2 positive things is the location and the nice front desk staff. Overall my family and I had a nice vacation because we stayed out of the room as much ad possible!! Good luck and shop on!! I'd recommend the Royal Clipper, it's a block away!

We are glad you liked our location to the Boardwalk and Beach just across the street. I apologize if your accommodations were not clean. Our staff works very hard to keep our vintage building clean and pleasant for our guest. I hope you will give us another try. We can do better.

We stayed for a full week in the studio cottage. The place is just like walking into the 1950's, but very clean and welcoming. It's definitely not modern, but that's one of the best things about it. We loved everything about it. It was more than enough room for two people. You walk out the front door and the beach is right across the street, there is also a small pool that you have access to if you don't want to go to the beach. The room had great air conditioning, full kitchen, cable TV, a small front patio, and free Wi-Fi. The people that own and run this place are great. They go out of there way to make sure you are having a good stay. We will definitely be planning our trip to come back next year. This is truly Virginia Beaches best kept secret, we would never stay any place else
