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... More

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-... More

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... More

Atlantic Avenue at 20th Street is not one of the fancier spots in Virginia Beach. Very convenient, though - when the interstate ends you drive a few more blocks and there you are. And there's the Capes Hotel - a functional, friendly spot on the boardwalk. We had a two-room setup - one room completely filled by two double beds,... More
