It is in fact better than the Ocean View Inn, but not my much. The room had a funny smell, but appeared to be clean. The Knights Inn in Virginia Beach on Lynnhaven is better, you get $5 back when you return your key & check out before 11.

Please heed my advise and do not stay here! We had a couple of reservations and once entering the room (after going to get fast food first) decided immediately that there was no way we could stomach the smell and funk in the room and we tried to get our money back and was told we would not be refunded...

This place is nasty, it smells and I will never come here again. I over paid for a room that smelled worse than a bar. The carpet was sticky and dirty, the room looked like it had never been cleaned and there was a fight right outside of my room at 3am. Never again. DON'T COME HERE!

Compared to the Ocean View Inn this place was WAAY better. It was spacious, had NO FLYS OR BUGS LIKE OCEAN VIEW INN and it had a huge bed with a cable tv, microwave, fridge with freezer, CLEAN towels, a table to sit at, and was QUIET unlike OV Inn which is more of an apartment complex than a motel...

I attended my brothers wedding in 2012 and stayed at this motel. It was supposed to offer continental breakfast and coffee, continental breakfast was non existent and the coffee was lousy. Rooms were not what I would call adequate for the price I paid per room. Though it is across the street from the beach i would not recommend this... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks b/c Navy Lodge & Q ran out of room at all bases. I searched for the lowest rate in town. Stayed here b/c of location. What a mistake! The cleaning lady was a sight, the proprietors were rude, and the room was never clean. It's location in terms of proximity is great, but that's about... More

Although the advertising board out front said, "Recently Renovated!", it was obvious that this was not the case. Dirt on the carpet appliances not even plugged in and running, broken towel racks, coarse towels and in a no smoking room, the unmistakable odour of stale smoke! Avoid this place at all costs; if you decide to stay make them pay... More
