The view was good and the room was clean and comfortable. No frills, but we weren't really charged for any. On site restaurant was good and staff was friendly. Could here the people in the next room, but it was not a big deal. I would stay there again.

Enjoyed walking in sand along the small beach area. Hotel location was excellent for our trip. A little dated, but just fine for a couple days. Staff were friendly and...

I was a litte hesitant to stay here after reading some of the previous reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff were helpful the location could not have been better and the view of the York River was phenomenal! Shops and restaurants were right outside our door. Museums and other historic attractions were only a few minutes...

Spent the night here during the Yorktown Wine Festival. Room was a suite, overlooking the water. I actually felt like I was on the coast in CA. Room was clean, AC was fine and the location is right on the water, next to restaurants, a clean beach, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

We made a call last minute for a room on Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised to get a 2-bed room at the Duke of York. The front desk and cleaning staff were VERY pleasant. We only stayed one night, but will definitely consider this for future trips.

Basic clean hotel room in excellent location. you can walk out the door and take the trolley tour or walk across the street to the beach or up the street to a couple of restaurants and shops. We were pleasantly surprised on our first trip to Yorktown (for a wedding) at how much history there is to explore and paths...

Super clean. Friendly staff. Disappointed that pool was not yet open even though it was Memorial Day weekend. Great location directly across from the river. Our room was in the front of the hotel, directly on the street. Due to the holiday weekend, it was quite noisy at night. Lots of motorcycles driving up and down the road way into...

My sister and I took my niece away for her "17th" birthday. I have stayed at Yorktown before but they had not. It was a hit! We had a wonderful time. From the time we parked our vehicle on Friday evening until we left on Sunday it didn't move. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. A nice,clean room...

The view was very beautiful. The pool was ok, not a big one. The room was average, good, let's say. It is close to restaurants and the beach. It was a nice stay. I recommend it. Not many car spots. But I dis get one for my car.

Reserved a room for a girls weekend. I tend to be a picky hotel stayer, but this hotel exceeded my expectation. The hotel was CLEAN, the view of the beach was BEAUTIFUL, and Marjorie the front desk attendant was EXCEPTIONALLY WELCOMING! Will definitely be staying at this hotel again.
