As im sitting in my room im looking out at the beach, it's absolutely beautiful. For breakfast you could make your own waffles. They also have bagels, yogurt, toast, juice, coffee (no meat). The wifi is good and they have plenty of cable channels. There are many stores and restaurants in the area if needed

What a nice review! Unfortunately for us, your stay was for another hotel, the Econo Lodge Oceanfront, a few blocks south of our location. However we are happy you enjoyed your visit to Virginia Beach and hope you will return to the area soon! More

We were road-tripping around Thanksgiving, right at the beginning of the "Christmas lights on the Beach" attraction. We had a balcony room with a great ocean view and an awesome overview of the lights right below. One block down to the left was Posiedon and also the paddock for the horseback riding on the beach, and we went for a... More

We stopped here during a 2 week road-trip over Christmas and New Year's due the reviews I had read. I have to say that I agree with most of what's been said. Being from Canada, I wanted to wake up to an ocean view in the middle of winter and boy, this property delivers. What prime location on the Boardwalk.... More

Our hotel room was very clean and the wifi was quite fast. My download speed last night averaged around 700mb/s. I had a great view of the beach and the breakfast service also was very good. There was plenty of food to go around. I enjoyed my stay here very much. It was a bang for the money.

As I went to the front desk to check in, I was greeted by a very nice guy with a friendly smile (I believe his name was Art). When my family walked into our room, we were pleased to see that the room was completely renovated from top to bottom; very, very nice room! Sadly though, after about 30 minutes,... More

A small place, well kept and clean inside and out. Very friendly staff from the manager down to the maids and maintenance people. It is right on the beach, has balconys, Pretty much everything the big places have except the big prices. This place is a Gem.

We stayed the weekend after Thanksgiving, and it was a very enjoyable experience. They had a special Christmas light display and "9 Ladies Dancing" was right outside our window. :) The curtains were thick enough to keep out the majority of the light (cars were driving down the boardwalk until at least 11pm nightly). The beds were super comfortable. Didn't... More
