Okay... I'm biased. I recently made my fourth trip to this motel/motor lodge at the southern end of Virginia's Eastern Shore. I love the motel and it's owner, Mr. Robert Rittenhouse. You feel like a friend visiting him, instead of a guest in his motor lodge.
WARNING! IF you require the latest in hotel/motel furnishings and accomnodations, please avoid this establishment. It is quite 'retro' - but very clean and comfortable. It is an older (50's or early 60's) business, but has been updated in some areas.
The rooms are spacious. The beds are comfortable. The host is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Mr. Rittenhouse makes great coffee in the morning, and is around for conversation.
The grounds are huge, and it is well off the busy road, surrounded by tall pine trees, so in summer, it is well-shaded.
I highly recommend it for those who don't need - or really don't want - the new, cookie-cutter hotel/motel room.
