Stayed at Cutty Sark for first time and what a horrible experience. Now I'm not used to staying at the Hilton or any of those super expensive places but this place is a NO WAY. First look, the room was dirty; hair on the floor, in the sink and couch. There was hair on the towels and washcloths, not to...

We are glad you liked our location to the Boardwalk and Beach just across the street. I apologize if your accommodations were not clean. Our staff works very hard to keep our vintage building clean and pleasant for our guest. I hope you will give us another try. We can do better.

We stayed for a full week in the studio cottage. The place is just like walking into the 1950's, but very clean and welcoming. It's definitely not modern, but that's one of the best things about it. We loved everything about it. It was more than enough room for two people. You walk out the front door and the beach...

The room smelled, the door wouldn't close properly, we wondered if it were locked, the towels were stained, there was a gap in the ceiling so you could see the level above and hear everything going on and you can see the outdoors through the kitchen fan! Use your hotwire to get a better last-minute deal, because this was no...

If you are looking for hi-tech, modern room this isn't the place for you but if you want a clean room with hot water, working air-con and a great balcony with ( a small) view of the beach through gaps in the sea front hotels/apartments on a budget for the location then this is a good place to stay.

Thank you for taking the time to include a good picture of the view to the Ocean from the balcony. All the front units have a view..better on the top floor.

The Cutty Sark is like entering a time machine. The place looks like nothing has changed since the 1970's. The room was excellent. It was good size, clean, had a tv, free wi-fi, fridge, stove, microwave, and coffee maker. The shower had plenty of hot water and excellent pressure. From the balcony we could see the ocean and the street...

Wow !!! I am so pleased to see the Cutty Sark is still in business and kept all of its charm. This darling place was my very first "home" when I relocated to Virginia Beach to begin my adult life. The year 1974 !!! I think this in itself is a testament of the Cutty Sark’s allure that beckons guests...

My sisters and I along with my nephew stayed last weekend and it was our first stay. It is a little gem among all the high rise hotels in the quieter north area of Virginia Beach.

We were lucky to find the Cutty Sark for our end of summer vacation. I was traveling with my three teenage kids and we stayed in one of the cottages. Absolutely perfect. We made full use of the kitchen and enjoyed staying literally across the street from the beach. I found the staff at the hotel extremely welcoming and helpful...

When you stay in a hotel you expect a certain amount of service for your dollar. The Cutty Sark is a very cute little motel with small kitchenettes in the room. The rooms are sparsely furnished and look like they're from 1960, but they are clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic, literally across the street from the beach.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write of your experience here at the Cutty Sark. We will see that the staff sees it. Guest kind comments make us all try even harder to make a visit to Virginia Beach and The Cutty Sark a memorable vacation. Do come again soon. Most Cordially
