Hotel & Motel Recommendations
There are hundreds of fine motels and hotels in the Hampton Roads area, Williamsburg and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We can't list them all. Our leaving one out doesn't mean it's a bad place to stay, just that it didn't jump into Andy's mind as a place he'd stay if he were visiting the area. Remember, we don't accept any payment to list hotels and motels.
Establishments you find here made our list because customers riding in our
cabs consistently tell us they enjoy these accommodations. If you stay somewhere
in the area and think it should be listed, or should be removed,
e-mail us and tell us about
it. We're members of the Virginia Beach Hotel & Motel Association. We
like to stay current on the quality of accommodations in our area.
