            You wouldn't think much of Royal Clipper, at first glance surrounded by mainstream giant hotels. But this place was clean, accomodating, and a gem in the rough. Our room, which was a surprise free upgrade to a room with a kitchen, was clean with plenty of service staff walking around to accomodate any needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our price-friendly stay and look forward to booking there in the future - to boot, repeat visitors are rewarded with an additon 10% off future stays!

            The rooms are all remodeled and the decor looks great. The room was very clean. Although, I was a little worried because the outside looked horrible, but once I got inside I could not believe it.

            I loved the Royal Clipper because the location (it is not so cloudy), next restaurants and the hotel staff was excellent.

            The stay was descent I went with my children, the room was cleaned. The pool was a lil small. It was very close to the beach which I liked as well as the shops and resturants. The shuttle came right in front of the building and the staff was friendly.

            The bathroom was tiney, an I parked inthe front one ay to come out the next morning with asshes on my car from people flicking there ashes on which I thought was rude. I soke to the owner and he said he would let me use the hose to spray it off.

            I reserved 2 nights thinking that it was a nice and Ocean front hotel, But it was not nice or. From the second I entered the Lobby (Trailer office) I got a bad feeling that this is just like a regular motel in the middle of nowhere that you end up staying because there is no other option. I knew I have to stay here because they would not refund my money . They gave me a key to the one of the first floor(street level) room. This was like a one sided fish tank and you had to draw this old curtain in order to have any privacy because every body could look in to the unit while passing by. The bath room was smaller than port-potty, so small that if you entered and sat on toilet you would not be able to close the door. There was a $ 9.99 Coffee machine at the office and some other amenities that would make you sick to look at. Elevator door was so filthy and hot, No shower outside to rinse your feet , very small pool and so on We decided to spend one night and get out of there if they refund our money for the second night. They charge us $25.00 canceling fee for the second night. Last time I went to Virginia Beach was almost 20 years ago and did not like then and do not like it now.

            Waste of money and time if this is your idea of having a good time at the beach staying in such a awful places.

            It would have been nice if the cleaning staff would of waited til at least 11 am to knock on our door and ask if we needed anything...being on vacation and stay 3 days we would have liked to sleep in...the were no do not disturb notices either

            The pool was too small ...it would have been nicer to know the capacity...only 12 I would have booked elsewhere...I asked for a front view room and got one ,, with a view of the stairwell wall, the noise was out of control, and guest were smoking pool side and some of which was illegal substances! Just walking around in the parking lot smoking it ! We were places beside the noisiest group, at 7 am they were outside our room loudly talking and slamming doors...should be a lil more sound proof! Price was too high ...and the pictures made the hotel look bigger and better, not happy but we had a nice vacation, we won't be staying there again tho.

            The workers were very friendly. The room was very clean.

            They were late checking us in due to a washing machine malfunction and did not offer us anything for having to wait.

            Location is great

            Room was not really clean,bathroom door from room 105 does not close,so you have to take a shower with the door half way open.I Wouldn't recommend this place to anybody.

            The staff was very friendly. Room looked nice and very clean. I would diffently recommend to my family and friends.

            Bathroom very verysmall.

            Rooms were newly re-modeled. The staff was friendly and offered suggestions for nearby resturants. It is an older facility but steps are being made to upgrade the rooms.

            The elevator was slow and parking places very narrow on the front side of building.

            I loved the area which was so convenient for what we were there for and that was to be on the beach. Also it was great for a last minute decision on a trip that was not planned to get a great location. Enjoyed our stay.

          • Single
            6.2

            The hotel was very convenient to the start and end points for all of the weekend races. The management was redoing the rooms and the room I stayed in had new floor covering, paint and bedclothes.

            The bathroom was tiny. I had to maneuver around the toilet just to close the door. There was a large window making up one wall of the room but the "view" from the window was a wall around a stairway...not the sort of view you want at a beach resort, even if the hotel is not on the beach.

            We stayed at the Royal Clipper Inn & Suites in March for the Shamrock Half Marathon. The location is within walking distance from the start and finish of the Half. Our room was comfortable and very clean. It had also been recently renovated.
