Basic clean hotel room in excellent location. you can walk out the door and take the trolley tour or walk across the street to the beach or up the street to a couple of restaurants and shops. We were pleasantly surprised on our first trip to Yorktown (for a wedding) at how much history there is to explore and paths...

Super clean. Friendly staff. Disappointed that pool was not yet open even though it was Memorial Day weekend. Great location directly across from the river. Our room was in the front of the hotel, directly on the street. Due to the holiday weekend, it was quite noisy at night. Lots of motorcycles driving up and down the road way into...

My sister and I took my niece away for her "17th" birthday. I have stayed at Yorktown before but they had not. It was a hit! We had a wonderful time. From the time we parked our vehicle on Friday evening until we left on Sunday it didn't move. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. A nice,clean room...

The view was very beautiful. The pool was ok, not a big one. The room was average, good, let's say. It is close to restaurants and the beach. It was a nice stay. I recommend it. Not many car spots. But I dis get one for my car.

Reserved a room for a girls weekend. I tend to be a picky hotel stayer, but this hotel exceeded my expectation. The hotel was CLEAN, the view of the beach was BEAUTIFUL, and Marjorie the front desk attendant was EXCEPTIONALLY WELCOMING! Will definitely be staying at this hotel again.

Driving down from Washington DC to Florida, we stopped in Yorktown with no hotel in our plans since we had made no reservations and were quite surprised to find this hotel. It is in a great location across from the "beach" at Chesapeake Bay. We decided at that moment we would stay and I am glad we did. The lady...

I was familiar with this hotel and decided to finally stay here. I set my expectations low, simply based on the age of the hotel and some reviews. However, the first floor room was outstanding! Apparently recently renovated, the room smelled fantastic, carpet appeared to be new, as did the furniture. Bed was very comfortable and the a/c (which is...

Hotel is old but rooms are decent and staff are nice. Near trolley stop and beach across the street. Gets noisy on th weekend with the streets cruisers. Restaurant on site so you can park your car the entire trip. Pool area is nice too. Will stay next trip!

The hotel location is outstanding for this quaint community. The water views and beach are bueatiful. The room was clean. The two down sides were the checkin process and the room air conditioner was weak - glad we had a fan with us. The housekeeping staff was fun and interacted well with our group. The restaurants and pubs were excellent...

My husband and I stayed here for one night after visiting Williamsburg (short drive away). The motel is located on the river and the view from our room was wonderful. We were given a room that was renovated, so the carpet was new, along with the bedding and updated fixtures in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and it...
