      Historical Traveler Reviews Capes Hotel Virginia Beach

      Which Capes Va., Beach did the Orange, Va. folks stay at?!

      from

      I don't know which Capes the folks from Orange, Va. stayed at, but we

      stayed there last year at just about this time, and found it so

      repugnant that we were obliged to move to more adequate quarters after

      two nights. We would not have stayed THAT long if it wasn't for a 2

      night minimum stay that was being enforced upon us. The room

      description was so misleading as to have been just short of totally

      untrue. It was described in glowing terms as having just been

      renovated--they added a kitchen sink and a micro-wave oven in an area

      that was too small for any additions. The decor was truly dated and

      tacky [my own house looks more appealing than this olive green and

      turquoise nightmare !] and the worst problem was the distinct odor of

      urine that emanated from the air conditioner whenever it was turned

      on!!! I can only assume that those poor people who found The Capes so

      pleasant cannot see or smell. Neither I nor my husband or my Mother

      would ever consider staying there again and the management has severely

      shaken my trust in their ability to honestly portray the real condition

      of these lodgings. We have been to Va., Beach countless times over the

      past 20 or so years--some places are better than others to stay at, but

      this was by far the worst we've experienced and we should have been

      issued a total refund for the two nights we stayed there. Really Bad!!!

      Lovely time at The Capes!

      from

      My husband and I ventured for a quick weekend getaway,our first time staying at The Capes. The food was excellent at the Durango Cafe, staff were very friendly and accomadating. Room was exquisite. Very clean and attractive hotel...the best one we've stayed in at Va. Beach! In a nutshell....we most definately will be returning.

      Never Again!

      from

      This was our first and last trip to the Capes. Please keep in mind that you must remember the following items before checking into the 2 room suite: Plates, forks, knives, spoons, cups, (any kitchen item that you can possibly think of), Ironing board, Iron, pool towels, $1.25 for each cup of coffee(no refills), .25 cents for each container of Ice, .50 cents for each "sandwich" bag full of Laundy detergent, and last but not least, make sure you bring you patience for the one and only front desk clerk that works very hard(the hotel should have 2 attendants there during the prime hours. I will drive the extra 4-8 hours to travel further south on our next beach vacation.

      Disaster on the beach

      from

      The good news: It's cheap The bad news: There's a reason The Capes is terribly rundown. The unit I stayed in had a great view but had thin sheets, a microwave but no cups--nor were any available. There are virtually no amenities and that goes right to the hot water supply. Frightful!

      I loved the Capes!

      from

      My family vacationed last week at the Capes for the first time. We always travel to Virginia Beach every year for spring break. This year was better than ever before. We stayed at the Capes in a two bedroom efficiency which was perfect for my family. My wife and I actually had our own room with our own TV and the kids had their own room with their own TV. The refrigerator and microwave allowed us to make sandwhiches in the room and warm up left over pizza. The hotel was centrally located so we could walk where we wanted - perviously we had to rely on the car. The evening deskclerk recommended several local restaurants for us to try. Most of which we never heard of but decided to try. Many of which we will definately revisit next year. Our stay at the Capes was a very enjoyable one. We will definately stay at the Capes again spring break next year.

      I Hate the Capes!

      from

      I stayed at the Capes last year in a so-called "efficiency". It had no stove, only a micro frig. The front desk clerk was rude and inflexible. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Nice Place

      from

      I stayed at the capes and i will be going back again .

      Capes Hotel Great and will return

      from

      Stayed at the Capes Hotel twice now and excellent both times. Located right in the middle of Va. Beach-close to everything. Rooms are modern, clean, roomy and I had superb view of the ocean. Owners were there daily and just the nicest of folk.

      Will go back again and again.

      The Capes Well Above The Norm!

      from

      I also stayed at The Capes this past summer 2002 and found it to be a great hotel. It was in the center of the beach which worked out well for my family and the indoor pool was wonderful on the day it rained. Our room had 3 double beds so my husband and I had our own space and our own TV. Our room looked straight out to the ocean. We sat on the balcony and watched the sunrise almost every morning.

      I definately plan on returning to The Capes next time I am in Virginia Beach.

      Recommended to Everyone

      from

      We arrived in Virignia Beach one July 12th for our annual family vacation to Virginia Beach. We had not been pleased with our hotel were we stayed the past 3 years so we decided to try something different. So for a change we picked a new hotel The Capes Resort Hotel. This hotel is definately a find. It is a smaller hotel with only 8 stories, reasonably priced, with nice ammenities, and it's centrally located.

      The Capes Resort Hotel has wonderfully located directly in the center of Virginia Beach on 20th street. Our oceanfront room had 2 double beds, refrigfgeroator, microwave, coffee maker all in a kitchen area with cabinets not on the dresser like at the other place. The room had a private balcony looking straight at the ocean.

      The staff of the hotel was also excellent. Check in and check out was very smooth and we were greated by a pleasant friendly person every time. The deskclerk also gave us wonderful dinner recommendations. Our houskeeper also did a great job the room was wonderful.

      We will definately return to The Capes Resort Hotel every year from now on and would recommend it to anyone trying Virginia Beach for a family vacation.

      ... flashing lights drew attention to these signs. We did see deer but truly, the promised bears in the brochure are still sleeping. The deer were scrounging for fresh growth under the snow. A few ice huts and brave fishermen stood on some very thin ice, crazy. Very impressive is where the river cuts in an S-shaped pass through the mountains, forming the Gap. Millions of years of uplift, erosion, and glacial activity formed the Gap, ...

      ... br> We accomplished our non-stop passage plan, arriving at Willoughby Bay, Norfolk, VA on May 19 at 1205, and dropping anchor just outside Willoughby Harbor Marina. Distance of the passage was 660nm over 4 days, 4 hours, 15 minutes for an average speed of 6.6 kts. Pretty typical for our offshore passages.

      Arriving in Norfolk, our plan had been to take Jim ashore in the dinghy to his ...

      ... all coming back to me. I saw the old fashioned photo place that me and Andrew had our pictures done at. I saw where Hagen Daas used to be - but now it is a different food establishment. I was rather sad about that. I cried a little on the inside. We saw the hotel we stayed at, the convenience store we bought lunch-ables at, the fudge shop Nita wanted to crawl to. It was all as I remembered. Then I spotted it, the store we stopped at that fateful day. After an ice cream break ...
