Fridge and microwave included. Ocean front/balcony view. best thing was the breakfast!!!!! very good. alot of variety. The inside pool is very small.... More

The hotel has a good location on the beach, and many attractions are nearby. The staff was friendly, but our room was a little too worn and sandy. The free parking was a little tight for our small SUV. Staff did a good job keeping up with the free breakfast rush. There were a couple of homeless men camped out... More

Great location, many restaurants nearby except Starbucks. No outdoor pool. Indoor pool is nice size. Parking garage is tight for big SUV and mini van. Carpets in room is beat up unlike other country inn locations.

We were in Va Beach on a vacation with one of my daughters and her family of 4 children. Not that there wasn't enough I brought along another grandchild. Five in total. I was very apprehensive about the trip with so many kids. The kids said that it was one of the best vacations ever. I loved being able to... More

This hotel is not the best. I usually stay at the holiday in on the Virginia beach strip but they were booked the weekend I wanted to go. This hotel had terrible WIFI service and I mean absolutely terrible. If you're waiting to go over your phone bill in data charges this is the place that will do it for... More

Dear elly461: First of all, I certainly want to personally apologize that you have concerns about your experience and stay with us.

This was our 5th time staying in VA Beach. The LA Quinta was by far the worst however our room 522 rivaled the filth found at the LQ. The positives: the staff, the location, the breakfast. The staff always seemed happy and pleasant. We stayed last year with very minor issues. This year was rediculous. My significant other planned a... More

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon a very busy time for the hotel, the front desk women were excellent and very helpful. We stayed for a week and the hotel was very very clean for being on the ocean. They constantly cleaned the first floor of sand and water. Could not have asked for a cleaner for inviting hotel. Breakfast... More

I would consider this a decent mid-level hotel. The location is perfect and the view from our 7th floor balcony was amazing. They offer a free breakfast that was good. Plenty of food to choose from. Go early though because otherwise you are waiting in a long line and the food (waffles particularly) is gone by the time you get... More

Dear 1TallGirl: I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to write a review about us on tripadvisor.
