From "Chesapeake Bay Magazine"

"Yorktown has a modern motel right on the town beach. But for a little atmosphere, one of the two B&Bs in town is vastly preferable. We stayed at the York River Inn, managed by the extremely hospitable William Cole.

Cole has the easy grace of a native Virginian and he is a fine and dedicated cook. He uses a blowtorch to brown his crème brulees, and we couldn't come close to doing justice to the flan, egg and artichoke casserole or clam pudding (he calls it Clam-Alama-Ding-Dong) he served us for breakfast.

Cole has also decorated his B&B, which is actually ensconced in a modern townhouse on a bluff overlooking the river, with an impressive and fascinating collection of period prints and maps related to Virginia during the Revolutionary War."
