The hotel was overall a very nice choice. It is one of the only non-high rise buildings so the building itself was very quiet, which was awesome. The staff were really pleasant to deal with, Art was great! Rooms were clean, and great location. Free bikes were also a bonus. Also liked that the outdoor pool was private, couldn't see... More

Stayed here one night for a last minute hotel change. We wanted to stay beach front as we were staying at the Navy Lodge. Front desk staff was wonderful. Room was very clean. Free bikes to ride. Great location on beachfront. I would definitely recommend.

My friends and I had a great time in Virginia Beach this past weekend and will definitely stay at Econo Lodge on the Ocean again the next time we make the trip. We drove down overnight on Friday and arrived in VA Saturday at around 9am. Even though check-in was not officially until 3pm, they were kind enough to let... More

For our anniversary we made reservations with our 2 kids for a weekend trip to Va. Beach. We don't get to do that very often! When we arrived we were devastated by an extremely bad construction project going on right next to the EconoLodge! I was pretty upset for certain!! I went in feeling very short changed on our trip...

Econo lodge if you stayed on them before you know they deal, comfortable and cheap, no luxury. If you want to enjoy the boardwalk instead of having a great hotel this is the place for you. Just walk out the back to get to the boardwalk. Great place to stay, when you are out on the street and want a... More

This is a budget friendly hotel and the staff are very accommodating. Unfortunately, there is major construction work occurring on the lot next-door with an active piledriver during the day, including the weekend--see picture. That's right, I said a piledriver! It's about 40 yards away. My bed is actually shaking with each drive. Boom, boom, boom! Of course, that's not... More

When I checked in the evening of March 18th (around 8ish), I experienced the worst customer service in my 20 years of traveling. Not only did the gal who checked me in not smile, when asked if she knew the location of a street, she acted like I just asked her to walk on nails. She gave off the most... More
