We stayed in a motel room “on the hill” section of this older facility. It had a magnificent view of the York River, from the motel room window as well as the grassy area in front of our room, which we enjoyed immensely. It was also very quiet and pleasant “on the hill” with a nice breeze, even in 100 degree temperature. Had we been in the newer section, which fronts on the River, we would have been looking at vehicular traffic as well as the beach goers. The hotel has a two star AAA rating, but I did expect a bit more than what we received for the rate we paid, even though this is prime time for a resort area. When we opened the door to our room, soiled carpet was the first thing I saw which made the entire room feel unclean. I do realize that it is a hotel room with a lot of different guests who do not treat it like they would treat their own home, but I feel it could be kept cleaner. The furnishings were very dated, but the mattresses were comfortable. This is the only hotel/motel in Yorktown, other than three B&B’s which had no vacancies for the time period that we wanted, so management can charge whatever they want to. So, if you want to stay in Yorktown, you have to tolerate the high room rate and the dated accommodations. There are a limited number of restaurants in Yorktown also, and I consider the food prices outrageous for the quality of food we received. We enjoyed the lovely Riverwalk area very, very much and the Saturday morning Farmer’s Market was awesome. Yorktown is a lovely place to visit and stay, with all its history, and we do plan to return, in spite of my comments about the accommodations. Next time, we will be better prepared for what to expect and be better prepared for meals.
