Virginia Beach Area Hotels
Days Inn (not the closest to the boat, but it is the cheapest)
1000 Atlantic Ave
Virginia Beach, VA, 23451 US
You have to tell the clerk at the desk that you want the Fisherman's Special and tell them you are fishing with Capt. Jim. The overnight rate should be $25.00 for weekdays and $30.00 for weekends.
Colonial Inn (2nd closest to the boat, nicer than the Days inn but still about 7 miles from the boat)Same deal as Days Inn - you have to tell the clerk at the desk that you want the Fisherman's Special and tell them you are fishing with Capt. Jim. The overnight rate for our customers is $36.00 from 11/1/06 through 3/31/07 which is a super great deal for this oceanfront hotel.

Travel Lodge in Lynnhaven - this one is the closest to the boat - about 1/2 mile walk from the Jil Carrie and Long Bay Pointe Tackle Shop. It is a short, convenient walk to restaurants, stores and bars:
(757) 481-4756 (fax)
2968 Shore Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23451
This one costs $49.00 for singles and $55.00 for doubles. You have to tell them you are fishing with Capt. Jim to get these rates and sometimes they try to jack you around on the rates. The good part is that it's a nice hotel and you can leave your car at the Econo Lodge and walk with no DWI risk. VA Beach is extremely tough on drinking and driving. So, Econo Lodge is about double the cost of Days Inn and Colonial Inn, but about 10 miles closer to the boat with zero risk if you are drinking. It's also stumbling distance from the world famous Guadalajara's, right next to Cabo's Night Club, and local favorites Smokehouse Grill, and CP Shuckers Raw Bar!
