On paper it looked great. Two queen beds with an ocean front balcony, outdoor pool, restaurant on site and beachfront! As soon as we got there I knew we were in trouble. To say the place could use a facelift is a compliment bits more if a candidate for Hotel Hell. The pros: beachfront, outdoor pool, restaurant, we actually had... More

We were pleasantly surprised with hotel. We stayed for a week in July and had no problems but for the fire alarm being set off at 2am on the night we checked in. Pool area is very small and doesn't accommodate very many people but seemed clean and well kept. Could have used more furniture around pool. Room was clean... More

Rooms were clean and the maid staff did a good job. Other staff could use customer service education to learn how to act and talk with customers around. No A/C in the hallways or elevators meant that you were likely perspiring by the time you got to your room. 1 set of elevators so you may have to wait. 2... More

I love Virginia beach but sometimes when you end up getting a horrible hotel, that kinda makes you wanna go home sooner than later. I dealt with bad service they're public bathrooms are disgusting, the rooms are outdated, they're phones don't work I mean it was a nightmare. I will never return to this hotel ever again. And I really... More

Okay beachfront hotel. Okay for 2 or 3 night stay. Fair price for level of accommodations. Beach hotels do get a lot of abuse. Small but clean rooms. More than 2 people in room would be tight. Bathroom had been re-done fairly recently so that was nice. Motel polyester bedspreads, older mattresses and 2 basic pillows. Balcony with 2 plastic... More

We had booked this hotel for the weekend. We checked in on a Friday to be given a room with razors, blood on the floor, condoms on the floor, and trash all over the room. We went back to the front desk to tell them, not very friendly at all! We were given a second room. We ran up to... More

Avoid this place at all cost!!! Rooms smell like mold, the hallways of the hotel will fry you like an egg because their windows are like a magnifying glass. Pool had cigarette butts all over the floor. The rooms are so outdated, things you think come standard in a room like 4 pillows on a bed or a coffee maker,... More

Had a nice stay. Would come back again if the price is the same. Room was clean and customer service was good. It met all my needs clean room to shower and sleep. The only thing I wish would have been nicer would have been the pool. But for my family we don't really use the pool, because we much... More

I cannot express how disappointed I am with our recent stay. We paid over $300 for one night and I would have been happier sleeping in the car. The A/C unit had created so much moisture in the room that they had fans in our room upon our arrival instead of giving us a different room or at least removing... More
