I spent the weekend after Hurricane Florence, and wasn't sure what to expect. Although Virginia was spared the worst, mandatory evacuation had been ordered for the coast. The beach was still there, with no notable erosion. I received a warm welcome at reception. Everyone on staff

Snuck down in between larger hotels ‘The Capes’ is a hidden family owned gem. Great friendly staff and service and overall experience.

If we choose to revisit VB, this place will be where we want to go!

This is a small family owned hotel. It is always clean and the front desk people are super nice. The oceanfront balconies are great. Everything is within walking distance. Sometimes we park and never move the car until we leave.

Response from gmcapes, Manager at Capes Hotel
Responded 30 Jul 2018
Thank you for staying with us and taking time to post a review. The Capes is located in the middle of the resort area which gives us an ideal location. We are within walking distance to a majority of the oceanfront attractions. I'm sorry you were not informed at check in about our four parking lots. We do have one small lot directly in front of the hotel and a large parking lot beside the hotel. The other two over flow lots are located directly across from the hotel. The oceanfront can be busy during the peak summer months, lots of entertainment options along Atlantic Ave at night. Check out Live! on Atlantic for an entertainment schedule.

We arrive there Sunday and I had pictured a boardwalk with restaurants, shops, etc but from researching online it looks like it's mostly hotels, and everything is behind the hotels? I was really hoping for oceanfront dining and that sort of thing, like some other boardwalks have. I see there are a few places but doesn't look like many.Thanks
I do not think there are any standalone places to eat. there are however a ton of places located within some hotels that are awesome.
