This was our second stay at Duke of York. Our first was during the snow storm in January. Storm pretty much brought things to a halt including the restaurant. I think two rooms were occupied but the ladies at reception desk wonderful and maids coped as best they could. Main roads clear but road to hotel and parking lot very...

This hotel in downtown Yorktown has to be one of the cleanest in which we've ever stayed! There is not one mark on the walls. Even the ceiling is clean; not a cob web in site. The furnishings all look brand new. The refrigerator is "apartment size"; not "dorm size." Every room has a view of the York River. There...

Although not a very new building it still has a lot of charm. What makes ity for me are the rooms on de third floor, overlooking the York River. At night the lights give the place an extra touch. I was here for the first time about 18 years ago with my wife and since then, when I want to...

We stayed here due to the proximity to the USCG training center as my son was graduating from "A" school. What a great place!. Every room has a view of the river. It is right in the middle of the shopping area of colonial Yorktown. The front desk was wonderful. We drove all night from Florida, and arrived around 10am....

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.

A great Anniversary Getaway Trip to quiet , clean Duke of York Hotel...right on the river!! Got to stick my feet in surf's edge briefly--cold-- JUST HAD TO DO IT! 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.
