The Econo Lodge customer service was absolutely the best. The front desk, maid service, and management staff went above and beyond. Everybody was friendly and helpful. Every room has an ocean view and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is wonderful, right on the beach and the boardwalk. Free bike rentals were the best. We rented bikes atleast...

We just returned from three days at this hotel and enjoyed it. The location is great, walking distance to restaurants and shops and the balcony lets you enjoy the beach without the sand! Well managed parking lot so you always get a place. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Ok, I admit it. I don't normally stay at an Econo Lodge. However, this one rocks. While I give the credit mainly to the excellent staff, the property really is ideal for families. The small number of rooms give it sense of intimacy as well as keeping the load on the pool and breakfast area manageable. Speaking of the pool... More

Thanks very much for such a nice review! We are happy to hear that the grandkids had a blast in the pool! We know how important the pool is in the heat of summer and are meticulous and careful in the maintenance of proper chemical balance. That is what keeps the water clear, and the kids happy!. We appreciate your... More

Do not stay at this property if you are traveling with family. There are no elevators, security is an issue and the noise from the bar across the street will keep you up all night. They put us, a family of 5, on the 3rd floor and we had to lug our luggage from the street, thru the parking lot... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. I am sorry we seem to have been a poor choice for you and your family at least as far as a lack of an elevator is concerned. We have many families that return year after year, and have served three generations of some of our many repeat guests. Easily... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights and we found it to be a gem of a hotel with an outstanding staff! The staff is very welcoming and aim to please. The rooms are comfortable and VERY CLEAN, and we had a great oceanfront view from our balcony. Yes, the parking is tight but it is onsite, and well... More

We just returned from a great time in Virginia Beach and we thoroughly enjoyed the Econo Lodge. The staff was great, the location was perfect and the bikes were really a great extra. The room was on the second floor and it was perfect for relaxing on the balcony at the end of the day. It was within walking distance... More

Thank you so much for your nice review of the hotel. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and would like to come back. Now that we know you are interested in fishing, late September and October are GREAT for surf fishing, if you get the chance to come back then. Especially after a rain. Thanks again... More

I stayed four nights at the Econo Lodge and enjoyed it very much. This was my first time staying at an Econo Lodge so my expectations were not very high. Being a frequent traveler, I check out a lot of hotels and was not overly impressed with other Econo Lodges in different parts of the country. However, this one was... More

Thank you so much for your review, we always appreciate the encouragement for the staff, (and me!). Our parking situation is a good news/bad news thing. Yes it is a very tight parking lot which is the bad news. The good news is we always have a space on site for our guests, rather than at a parking lot 2... More

This small hotel seems to be dwarfed by many other hotels on Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach, VA. On closer inspection, I discovered that it actually offers all amenities that its neighbors offer but at a much lower price. Like them, it is directly on the beach but unlike them, every room is truly a spot-on oceanfront room and not... More

We have been coming to this oceanfront hotel for many years and I hesitated to write a review because I would like to keep this gem a secret. Leonard and his staff provide exceptional service.
