Cutty Sark Efficiency Motel
Ranked #71 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Great but had some issues with the air conditioning and the toliet got clogged up. Other than that staff is great and the location is amazing loved the heated pool. Parking isnt to great though. Ask for more towels and they'll come warm. Good.

Stayed: July 2014

June 22 to June 30 was our third stay at the Cutty Sark in as many years, so you know we love it! Not fancy, but we can't imagine staying anywhere else. The location is perfect and the kitchenette provided allows us the freedom to get up early or sleep in without worrying about making it out to a restaurant. A fantastic money-saver, as well - couldn't imagine paying for four people to eat out three times a day! Mrs. Koch, Jerry and all the staff are super-friendly and always willing to help. We had a street-level room with balcony this year, so we were a bit concerned about the potential lack of privacy, but VB is such a laid-back place! We'd have conversations in our pj's with passers-by while having our morning coffee! The units we've stayed in have always been clean with plenty of towels, toilet paper, dish soap, coffee filters and clean dishes. All in all, can't wait to go back - feels like home! Thanks again, everyone!

Room Tip: Any room facing the ocean is great!

We stayed June 23-27. The hotel was an average one but it definitely had some great qualities. First, price! By just moving back one street from the ocean, we saved 50% on our stay. And honestly it takes no time to get to the ocean, which you can still see from your room. The rooms were small but had everything we needed. We used the refrigerator, coffee pot, and dishes but not the stove (we just didn't need to). The location is wonderful because it's away from all of the hustle and bustle so it's easy to sleep; however, you can walk right down the street and be in the center of everything. We loved the pool and also staying on the first floor- very easy access. They are very concerned with making sure you have a place to park- front office staff was kind and so were the housekeepers. Decor and stuff was pretty old... but it fit in with the overall style of the hotel. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and neither was the sleeper sofa but that's just a personal opinion.

Room Tip: We loved the bottom floor because of the direct pool access. Made coming in and out with all of our...

June 12th was my 23rd Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I planned a trip to Virginia Beach. The Cutty Sark was the perfect home away from home for the night. Hotel staff was polite and professional. Our room was perfect....balcony facing the waterfront on 37the St & Atlantic Ave. The heated pool was very nice and private. We loved waking up to the bright morning sunshine from the oceanfront! Just romantic! We were offered alternative parking next door at the cottages just in case we took a drive out and lost our parking spot! In which we did! We will definately be making another trip before the summer ends to stay here. Even our other friends were jealous of our amenities and room features! (they lodged at the Sheraton across the street) They also want to be guests here on our next trip! Inexpensive, convenient, and just like home!!!!
I would recommend this spot!

Pictures on website do not give an accurate description. Didn't know I would need to bring my own towels/washcloths, soap, etc to "enjoy" the stay. Parking is at a minimum so don't drive a large vehicle. We found a dirty shirt in our room and our friends found a sock in theirs. Had a heated pool which was nice for the kids, but they had yet to "flip the switch" (as they put it) for air conditioning, so the room smelled musty and dirty. Had to keep doors open to get a draft.

I understand it's one of the cheaper hotels on the block, but at least try.

Room Tip: At least we had a third floor balcony so we could see the beach.

First let me thank you for choosing our little Hotel for your vacation stay. And I want to thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. They enjoy their work and enjoy seeing our guest enjoy themselves and leave rested and restored. We appreciate your remarks on the cleanliness. Our efficiencies with their original Kitchenettes make vacation living like a home away from home. Folks seems to like being able to have breakfast in their room in their P.J's and pop in from the beach to have a quick lunch. Dinner is out most of the time. We are a small mid-century Hotel. Only 14 units. However, we do provide Bath Towels, Hand Towels, washcloths,liquid shampoo and Bath soap. All amenities a small hotel like ours is expected to provide. We also provide dish soap and tea towels for the Kitchenette. I'm sorry for the confusion.

For the love of Americana, we chose it for the flavor of quiet, homespun Virginia Beach before the international hotel takeover. We had fun and saved money fixing clever gourmet meals in our full kitchen.

Room Tip: Ask for any of rooms with a view of the shore.

I give this a 5 star rating- excellent. This is not a five star Wyndham resort and spa 5 star, this is 5 star clean, inexpensive, eclectic, friendly, close to beach and everything else you get what you pay for 5 star. The owners and staff are friendly and courteous, the pool is small but so is the hotel. My husband thought the other reviewer was full of you know when he said he sat at the porch watching the dolphins in the ocean until my husband saw the same thing. Anyone that gives this a bad review expecting deluxe accommodations for $60 a night is kinda crazy in my book. Go ahead and pay three times as much and stay across the street. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed last September 2013, we are booking again for 2014.

Room Tip: Our favorite room is the one right above the office
