“Surprise stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

When we drove up, it sure didn't look like the internet picture and our expectations dropped.
However, on entering the room we were surprised by the cleanliness and roominess of the space.
The stay was welcoming. Our dog has enough room to run outside. We were very pleased.
A bit pricy but then there are not that many places welcoming dogs and the price for the dog was
very high $50 per night - yes high - but our only complaint.

We wanted to play golf at Bay Creek and needed to stay overnight and not familiar with the area.
Read reviews for Shore Stay Suites and contacted them to book a room. Management was very welcoming and offered a golfing rate. Hotel is only 10 minutes from Cape Charles and an easy drive.
Our room was spacious, clean and fresh smelling. Plenty of towels.
A/C unit a bit noisy but beds were comfortable.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: If you get first floor room try to and get one with no one above you.

We visited Eastern Shore for two days and Shore Stay Suites was in a quiet location-great for sleeping yet close to all the places we wanted to visit like the local state park, Eastern Shore Wildlife Refuge and adorable nearby Cape Charles. Very clean, large room with an outfitted kitchen, full refrigerator, nice stove and oven and a window looking out the rear of the property. Food Lion isn't far away so cooking meals is an option to going out to eat. A laundry unit and ice machine in the office makes this the perfect place to stay for a vacation.
Alyne, the general manager, was so helpful and welcoming. I am going to tell all my friends about our lovely stay at the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same size, they are all great!

Green Features: We treated the hotel like our own home and hung up our towels to use them the next day. It is silly to need new towels everyday, although they would have provided them for us. I like helping to conserve energy. I didn't know about their energy-star windows, but that is good to know!

Attended a wedding in the area and needed a place for one evening. Very very clean room with kitchen. Appreciated being able to check in early as we travelled from a distance and needed to get dressed for wedding.

Room Tip: Top floor room so you don't hear noise above you.

Seems cute and all but at 9.30pm no one is here to let us in to our room paid room. Next hotel...

Wish trip advisor including the hours posted on their office. 8am to 8pm.

Calling for a refund!

Apparently this isn't enough characters. So I can elaborate. Trying to find a quick spot to sleep while traveling through Virginia and using the trip advisor app to find this place was a bad idea.

we stayed here on our way to the outer banks, nc
we were travelling with our dog so needed a pet friendly place
very spacious room
would be a great place to stay for a weekend or say a 4 day getaway as it had a small kitchen
very neat, clean, well maintained
we have reservations to stay there again overnight but may change our plans because the rates have increased dramatically since last summer

Stayed only one night, but it more than sufficed, and it's about a 10-min. drive from the middle of town. You at least want a clean room, and that's what you'll get. I associate a suite with two rooms, but our one-room with a kitchen and double bed was pretty decent. The only thing was, there was no phone in the room! So what do you do if you need to contact the front desk? Use your own phone or walk on down. But the office isn't open 24 hours. I didn't remember to ask them why there was no phone in the room, but you can be my guest. (No pun intended.)

Room Tip: Request a 2nd-floor room (sorry, "suite") if available. I assume you'd prefer the pitt...
