Where to begin???? The rooms here are filthy. Dust on everything and the door to the balcony is so old it is permanently fogged up between the panes of glass so you can't see outside. Mold on the bathroom ceiling and the pressure of the water coming out of the shower is so strong it hurts to stand in plus... More

This is another of the older hotels in VB but it is very nice. Rooms are big. Live music in the Calipso bar which is great. Walk to great restaurants and enjoy the beach view. Small pool but adequate. Also price was right.

When we booked the room, we were told it was oceanfront...nope! It was bar front not oceanfront...and to beat all we had the $50 off postcard, and we never received the discount. The hotel charged our account t an extra $50 and when we questioned it, they took the $50 off and called that our discount! The manager Kisha Williams... More

We stayed at the Grand Ocean Hotel from June 14-17, 2015. The room was not clean at all and hadn't been for some time. The sink was broke and the balcony door would not lock. You could hardly see out the balcony door because it had not been cleaned for a very long time. We looked down onto an air... More

We took a short trip to Virginia Beach for the first time. I chose Grand Ocean Hotel because it was well-priced and had an ocean front balcony. The view was fantastic. The room itself was clean, but somewhat dated. The whole building seemed as though it had definitely seen better days. It looked worn and poorly maintained. The service on... More

We stayed 6/14 to 6/17/15. We booked for the price expecting an older hotel with older bathrooms and furniture and having read trip advisor we expected noise. This hotel is older and the furniture is dated, but our 8th floor room smelled fresh and was clean as were the hallways. The elevators take a real beating with pool traffic and... More

Pictures posted by owner on website are VERY deceiving. I understand it is to be a Double Tree in the future. My cost per night was over $200 (including taxes) and wasn't worth $79. Some updates done but not well done at all. Updated toilet with broken wall/repair and leaking. Carpet, bedding and walls clean.....but much needed maintenance. Pool water... More

It's cheap because it's absolutely horrible. If all you need is a place to pass out in a drunken heap then this could possibly work for you - but even then, you'll probably wonder why the floors are mysteriously soaking wet. My biggest gripe with this place is the lack of disclosure about the booming live music coming from the... More

Are we in 2015 or 1985? We had the king jacuzzi suite and it looks nothing like it was online. Take a look at my pics. First, we were disturbed by the loud music till midnight and drunk ppl in the bar downstairs and it is very very loud. Second everything was falling apart from the door knobs, the toilet... More

Got here earlier than we though and didn't have a room till the next night. We were wanting inexpensive and clean. No bell or whoop whoop just a clean bed and nice shower. The front desk woman is a maniac- she kept telling me and my husband she couldn't wait to be off she need a drink Can't do this... More
