"We selected this hotel based upon previous reviews and were not disappointed. The staff was wonderful and the accommodations lovely. Very modern design. Very comfortable. They recommended Aqua for dinner (great) and the coffee shop two doors down for breakfast (also great). Definitely the place to stay in or around Cape Charles."

"Skip the Jersey Shore-style development to the north for the peninsula’s wilder section. Set up camp in Chesapeake-facing Cape Charles, Virginia for sailing, paddling, and all the blue crab you can eat. Just two blocks from the public beach, Hotel Cape Charles includes six Loft-style rooms with eat-in kitchens!"

“At Hotel Cape Charles, 16-room boutique hotel with minimalist aesthetic just a few blocks from the beach, mid-century art hangs on monochromatic walls and mornings begin with complimentary small-batch roasted coffee, Greek yogurt, and organic granola made six miles down the road in Eastville.”

“Farther south, in Cape Charles, the newly restored Hotel Cape Charles sports a striking glass, steel, and brick facade whose modernity defies, but comfortably coexists with, the surrounding Victorian and Colonial Revival aesthetic."

(Recommended as THE place to stay on the Virginia Eastern shore)

“The untrained interior designer in my head labeled the Hotel’s theme ‘eco beach chic.’ The whole place feels very zen. An unobtrusive front desk sits off to the side of the open, light-filled lobby. The second floor is equally airy. Rooms branch off the art gallery, where guests can hang out and make use of a pair of wet bars. I liked the smaller touches, too. Small lamps, perfect for nighttime reading, fold out from the wall next to the headboards. A Carrara marble-topped dry bar with plenty of snack storage also discreetly hides a miniature refrigerator.”

"There is no downside to this wonderful hotel. Ned, the manager oversees a great group of hotel employees. Roxie, his dog, is a charming host who attracts children and adults of all ages. We will definitely go back here. Words cannot fully describe how good this place is."
