The Virginian appears to have been build in the 40s/50s and kept patched together since. Pros: our room was clean with comfortable beds, the beach is across the street, the wraparound, entirely shared balcony allowed for time outside without leaving, the thick walls kept things quiet, and there's a pool, for those who want a pool beside the ocean. Cons:... More

If I could give this place a less than terrible rating I would. I'm not a snob, and I was not expecting a five star motel. I was expecting clean. This place was filthy! I can't stress how much! There was someone's hair in the bathtub, toenail clippings on the floor! Inches of dust and grime. The pool was unusable... More

The staff is rude, the room smelled horrible, like a mixture of sweaty armpits and mold, and the phone in the room didn't work. I called the office (from my cell) to get the wifi password and was told I needed to call from the room phone. They said they would have the phone fixed after I told them it... More

going off the other reviews I was expecting it to be worse than it was. Agreed its a little worn around the edges, but for a budget price stay it was ok. Got checked in and given key to room on 2nd floor. Note there is no elevator. Room was pretty comfortable, spacious. Could do with a deeper clean but... More

not the worst but far from the best.. no elevator, If booking in advance make sure you get 1st or second floor in writing or you will be going up the stairs... Also, front of building is much nicer view wise.

This place is a real value. It is not the tredndiest place ever, nor is it surrounded by nightlife, but it is clean and cheap and right across from the beach. The owners are so helpful and friendly, we've been twice and had an excellent stay both times. Again- it's not the ritz, but it's perfect for a low key,... More

I was sceptical looked at room all was fine. very clean. good water pressure. not overlooking ocean, but I was alone so who cares. Owner very nice. beach across street. Clean and inexpensive. Ice cream across street serves beer..and some very interesting drinks. Ladies ask for a fish bowl there.

Ok, we booked here for three nights following renting a house in Garden City Beach. We did not want to drive back to NY over Labor Day weekend. Searched around and found this place. We arrived and the owner's were very nice and allowed us to check in early. The room was dated, but it was clean. Location was good,... More
