This hotel seemed nice enough until they were getting barraged by Hurricane fallout weather. NOAA was predicting life threatening flooding and 50 mph+ wind gusts. There response to trying to cancel and move our trip was “we don’t control the weather and your safety is not our concern”. That was the quote from the lady on the other end of the phone. I asked her to talk to corporate in which she refused.

I have been staying here for years. The ladies at the front desk are very nice, and so are the maids. The location is perfect. The adjoining restaurant is good. Rooms are pretty clean. The rooms especially the 2 room suite are the perfect set up. I strongly strongly sugges you spend these upcoming colder months to update the rooms and the bathrooms, it is time owner, put some of that money in your business, and buy some towels that are adult size please.

DO NOT STAY HERE! The toilets do not flush. The tub was full of sand. There was a mildew smell in the room. We could not enjoy the water view from the active birds nest over our head on the balcony. Dirty and dusty. Service was subpar. We told the hotel staff and they told us there was nothing they could do about it. it is not worth the money! Stay somewhere else!

The inadequate parking was an issue not enough spots for the hotel, check-in was easy front desk was kind, we get to our room start checking it out the shower curtain is full of mildew there’s hair in the bathroom the toilet would run after you flushed it, you have to take the top of the tank off and hit the float for it to fill up again. The bath towels were more suited for a small childand there were only two wash cloths for a double room.The beds were hard the pillows were very flat. You had to move the coffee maker over near the microwave and unplug the microwave to hook coffee maker up as the top outlet did not work. The mini fridge was dirty on the inside. The room could use updating.

My wife and I recently visited Virginia Beach for two reasons: 1.) A short vacation 2.) To scout the area for potential retirement properties. We'll be ready in about 4 1/2 years. I had recently read the negative reviews of the Capes Hotel prior to our arrival and decided to keep an open mind. I have decided that I couldn't disagree more with the negative reviews. When it comes to the staff, the gals at the front desk were the best. They were friendly, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. They bent over backwards for my wife and I and ensured we had everything we needed. If I could remember their names, I would certainly mention them by name. Virginia Beach is busy, busy, busy. Have some patience when it comes to parking at this hotel. In addition to the parking in front of and to the side of the immediate hotel area, there is additional parking across the street. The gals at the desk will be more than happy to point you in the right direction. Something to consider is that the hotel is a little dated, but it is extremely clean. If you would like anything that you would otherwise take for granted when it comes to housekeeping, make sure you ask for it. We were on the fourth floor facing the beach and the view was amazing, so ask for a room with a view of the beach, you won't regret it. Thanks Capes Hotel. We'll definitely be back!

What a joke of a hotel. Parking horrible just trying to find a spot to check in. At check in it was no pleasure dealing with Crystal and Vickie. Both were rude and condescending acting as if this was our first time ever staying in hotel. Finally got to room after waiting forever to get in one hotel elevator only to find it dirty. Could not call desk to report as room phone has no dial tone. Back to desk where I was told room wasn’t dirty. Yes it was see picture of broken bucket on floor and trash in can. This should have been caught and checked before we arrived but it wasn’t and in looking at lobby, pool, hall and elevator it wasn’t surprising room was dirty. Entire hotel feels overly dirty and just worn out. Finally got desk to give me another room after arguing for for what seemed like and hour. Next room wasn’t much better. Not bucket on floor however there was food in fridge sand on carpet mold in tub and on shower curtain filthy room windows almost complete blocking beach view. Just decided to stay the two nights and make the best. Cleaned room ourselves as I was scared to ask for another room after already getting two dirty ones. Asked on day two to speak with manager. Desk lady was nicer Laurie said manager darla was not there but would call me. Next day we left at checkout asked again for manager as no one was there again. Asked again for manager to call us. Manager never called us which ain’t a big surprise after seeing overall condition of rooms and hotel. Maybe if manager was there more the hotel would be cleaner and better taken care of. Please be aware before you book a room. If you don’t want to clean your own maybe stay somewhere else. Won’t see me there again that’s for sure.

I have never had worse customer service than I did in this dirty dated dump of a hotel If I can save one person from wasting their money on this place it will be worth writing this review. Crystal the front desk clerk was without a doubt the rudest unprofessional customer service person I have ever encountered at a hotel I wish I had read the other reviews BEFORE I made reservations. Due to the fact we politely asked if they possible had another room we could switch too because half of the jets in our jacuzzi tub were not working she decided we were not going to be happy in that hotel, she was going to refund our money (which she didn't even know how to do) and we were to leave. We've stayed in probably 500 hotels and this was a first. We explained it wasn't that serious we were fine with the room and started walking down the street to go to dinner. She literally chased us a half a block screaming we needed to get our things and leave. We were really in shock never witnessing this erratic behavior before from a hotel clerk. My husband said you're right this isn't the hotel for us. She kept over talking him and wouldn't let him speak We got our things demanded a refund slip and left to find a hotel that was twice as nice as this one. We left the following morning heading somewhere different . We will never return to VA Beach period .

We really enjoyed our stay here!!! We stayed 4 days and 3 nights. The staff was nice and attentive!!! I read some of the reviews before we went and I noticed some of the things were true. But other then that it was nothing major. It's worth the stay at Capes

Super friendly staff great location and reasonable rates. We have tried many other hotels in Virginia Beach but none are as friendly and welcoming as the Capes Hotel… we are always greeted with a smile and happy faces. The rooms are clean the view is wonderful and we will be can’t wait until July. See you soon Capes family!

Disgustingly Rude Front Desk Women The negative reviews are right. The desk clerks are rude and unfriendly. They have probably been getting away with this for decades. Also, the hotel had a moldy smell. For the reviewer asking for corporate information, Dun and Bradstreet lists, the owner of the hotel. Trip advisor won’t allow me to print it. However, the Owners number takes you to the hotel front desk clerks so good luck getting past them to report on their behavior. This appears to be a family run business.
