Kitchen is very old and bathrooms was clean but tub had rust. Beds was comfy to sleep on and was very clean and seen NO bugs anywhere. Was the cheapest place to stay we could find at the time. They do have a small pool and one area outside your room if you need clothes cleaned.

You are right, the kitchenettes are old, almost 50 years old. They are original to the Building 1969. We treasure them. I hope you enjoyed your stay and that we provided all you needed for a clean, relaxing, very convenient home away from home while you enjoyed our beautiful city of Virginia Beach. Come see us again.

First off, LOVE the location and everyone at Cutty Sark was super nice. I loved sitting on our private balcony in the morning with my coffee and watching the dolphins play. I saw so many dolphins on a daily basis. Bring your binoculars for a better view, but you can watch them without them. The room could use some updating....

We stayed here for vacation may 2016. Staff was friendly, location was great! Wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be but we did rush them for an early check-in so that could be why. Did smell kind of weird, we bought air freshener. Good for the price.

Thankfully I only booked one night at this motel, Saturday, May 7, 2016. The air conditioning had not been turned on yet. There was a microwave in the room but I would have had to move the sofa to plug it in. There was a coffee pot on the table, but no receptacle nearby. The electrical outlets need updated. When...

I'm sorry you were uncomfortable but we had a very cold and unpredictable spring 2016. We had to have heat available until Mid-May..We do have a new geo-thermal well that supplies water the our cooling system at a constant temperature for comfort. We have charging receptacles on the bedside lamp for convenience, you might not have located them....Hope you enjoyed...

We stayed in the perfect room that gave a lovely view to the ocean. Quaint and friendly spot on 36.5 street. Easy access to food, drinks, and the convenience store. Not to mention a hop skip and jump away to the ocean. The fridge was cold, the water was hot, and our bed was comfortable. If they had toothpaste (since...

This place is average. Not a great place, not a horrible place. It serves its purpose. It is within walking distance to the beach and shops. There is a kitchenette in each room so you can cook as much or little as you like. Parking is very limited.
