I had my wedding 10 minutes away at a different venue, Herrington on the Bay, but I had a room block for my guests here at this resort. Renee was extremely friendly, responsive and helpful and my guests were able to easily call to book within the block. This hotel was clean, beautiful and let me put up a welcome sign and welcome bags at the front desk for my guests!Sent on 09/19/2018

We could not have been more pleased with finding Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa for our wedding venue. Lori was so helpful throughout the planning process. The venue was beautiful, and the food was all very good! Lori was very responsive to emails, helped us find great vendors, and served as our coordinator for both the rehearsal and the wedding. The salon was also great! Very convenient that it was on site and the staff did a great job with my (and my bridal party) hair and make-up. The entire wedding day went smoothly thanks to Lori and the rest of the CBRS staff! I highly recommend Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa.Sent on 08/15/2017

Rod ‘N’ Reel Resort's reply:Marisa,
We really enjoyed providing the gowns for the fashion show at CBRS....a wonderful experience with the staff, the venue and the clients that came to the Bridal Event. We can't wait to work with these folks again next year. I had such a great experience that my husband and I just spent Father's Day weekend at the Resort and had another excellent experience with the hotel, the staff and the food and drinks were 5-star!
When we photograph at Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa we know that it will go smooth because the staff is focused and easy to get along with. Their dedication to the client is evident and they do not forget that we too are client's in our own way. If you are looking for a well run event make sure you secure Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa .
It's always a pleasure working at the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa for events. Their staff is very friendly and attentive.
