Awesome stay at the hotel for the weekend. No problem at all booking. We show up they upgrade our room due to over booking two queen beads so we ended up with a suite with two beds like we wanted. great stay nice staff.

My room was 613 it had a small balcony but a great view. The owner needs to invest in training his staff in hospitality and housekeeping. Mold on the bathroom ceiling, windows, balcony, hallway, lobby, and elevator were very dirty. There were a few people who were helpful but with no name tag it was hard to acknowledge them.

The check in process went smooth. The following day my room was not clean until 3pm. The trash did not go out and i found some blood on my bed sheets. The balcony was dusty and filthy. There are great eating places in the area.

I will not stay here again. Loud music until late. Place not very clean. Parking is not at the hotel you have to walk across the street and about a block, they charge if you have more than one car. There is no coffee maker in the room. Great for party animals, but not for families with kids or people... More

A short summertime beach trip was an unpleasant experience. Check in time was to be 3 PM, we were unable to get into our room until 4:45PM. I noticed several cleaning issues including the base of the toilet which was covered in urine and pubic hair. Several places on the wall in the bedroom had either coffee, soda, or tobacco... More

I want to start out by saying that I am not typically a picky person at all when it comes to hotels. I regularly stay at Motel 6 type hotels. However this hotel completely floored me. Please please please heed this warning and stay anywhere but here. The room was the foulest thing I have ever seen in my life.... More

Now that I am home from the beach, I wanted to tell everyone about my stay at the Grand Ocean Hotel in Virginia Beach. It was the most disgusting hotel I have ever been it. The deadbolt would not engage. The balcony door would not lock and we were on the second floor. The furniture looked as if it came... More

The room looked like it hasn't been cleaned in 25 years. There are bugs and food crumbs all over the room and stains on the bed. The staff are rude and they definitely don't care about you or your vacation they want your money and that's that. As we were checking out we were NOT given a refund for the... More

I stepped on a chewed taffy or gum of some sort that was at the foot of my bed which led me to check the floor of my room. Around the corners of the foot of my bed were potato chip crumbs, a cigarette, candy wrappers, peanuts and more candy. The shower faucet was leaking. When I went downstairs to... More

I read the reviews before I booked and thought wow this hotel can't be that bad....Boy,was I WRONG! Everything that everyone said was TRUE! I have never wrote a review about a hotel before but everyone needs to know about this hotel...I would not recommend this hotel to anyone! Our room was VERY DIRTY! They definitely don't spend much time... More
