Everything, (restaurants, bars, beach, shopping, museums, battlefield & visitors enter & Main Street) is within walking distance, only a block or two or

This hotel is beginning show it's age and is woefully behind in technology. It took almost 30 minutes to check in. I am not sure whether it was the staff or the program being used to register the guests but whatever caused it was extremely slow. Some Guests waited for over an ho

This is an older motel type facility located across the street from the waterfront. This was the perfect location for our planned sailing excursion from the nearby pier. I found the online booking to be somewhat confusing. The choices are labelled1st, 2nd, etc. without clearly sp

Old school hotel with friendly staff and cozy accommodations. Not the biggest room in the world--two double beds--but enough space for three people, including an energetic 12-year-old to feel comfortable. Sliding patio door opened to a balcony and great sights and sounds of a pop

The Yorktown beachfront is a beautiful little spot, and this is a great place to stay to take advantage of it all. All the staff I encountered were very kind, check in and out were a breeze, and we absolutely loved our room, which was clean, comfortable and larger than I am used

This was a great hotel and I enjoyed my stay. Having trouble getting reimbursed. Does anyone know why tax exempt id is in left upper side
Had the pleasure of staying in one of your rooms this past Saturday night. Very clean, comfortable room with great view and access to the York River beach!. My boyfriend suffers from chronic back issues and normally has a very tough time sleeping a whole night through on certain beds, including our own at the moment. He said he had one of the best night sleeps in a very long time on the bed at Duke of York hotel. Is it okay to ask what brand of bed/bed topper/pillows you all use so I'd be able to find something similar? It's such a relief to hear he slept a whole night without pain! Thank you all!
Do not have answer, beds were comfortable. I would call the motel, if they can give you manafacturer you can ask them if they make something like it for the home market.

My daughter and I will be vising friends in Newport News, May 18th-20th and were thinking about staying at your property. 2 questions...Do you offer Military, AARP or AA discounts? Would the pool be open? I realize it is one week before Memorial Day but thought that it may be. Thank you so much for your assistance.
I meant AAA...

Do you have meeting rooms or a banquet room? If not, is there one nearby for a group function?
We have a room for meetings/banquets but it is not large, about 25 people is the max it can handle. There are larger rooms in town, at the Freight shed and at the Riverwalk Restaurant, There also may be space in the new Victory Center. Thank you for your inquiry, let me know if you have any other questions, Cole Crockett 757.898.5270

can you fish from the motel grounds?
As the previous response noted, there is a roadway between the hotel and the beach. You can fish from the beach if you have a Virginia Saltwater Fishing License, or the aforementioned municipal pier where you do NOT need a license. Thank you for your inquiry, feel free to email me with another other questions, Cole islandtimecafe@gmail

"Best views from third, ffourth and fifth floors"
"Check location of room before booking"
"2nd floor and up offer balconies and beautiful view of the river."
"We like the view from the third floor the best, but I was told all of the rooms have a water view."
"Second floor is your best option for overlooking the York River."
