Sweet older hotel in the thick of the hotel lineups along the boardwalk. Nice ocean view from every window. Bed was small, a double, but very comfy. Our room & bathroom were very clean, very affordable place to stay & walk to everything along the beach. Friendly & efficient staff. I would stay again.

I can't say anything positive ENOUGH!! about this wonderful, ocean-front hotel. Our large, extended family has been gathering at VA Beach, every year for the past 17 years, and once we "discovered" the Capes Hotel, we haven't wanted to go anywhere else for the past 14 years! Every member of the staff at The Capes has been, over all these...

This is so late but wanted to add my review. We arrived early and were able to go ahead and check in, although we couldn't move our luggage in. We parked and enjoyed a walk around the shops & had lunch. Great view from the 6th floor. Beach front. Housekeeping was great, the beds were awesome. We didn't go to...

We made last minute reservations and I must say that Laurie at the front desk was great. Very friendly and accommodating. Out room was ok, the bed sleep well. However, the rooms could definitely use some updating!!!

As usual, I waited too long to book a room for the annual Neptune Festival. I didn't want to spend a fortune on a room. I was hesitant about the Capes, but the price was more in line with what I wanted to spend for an oceanfront room. I am glad I did! My daughter and I were pleasantly surprised-...

Clean, quiet and lovely. Although the room was a bit dated and dingy just from years of use, it was clean, and the view from the balcony was amazing. I saw bedspreads being washed which is a bonus! The staff was great, we asked for extra towels and an extra blanket and had no problem getting what we needed. It...
