We stayed at the Ocean Key Resort for 5 days at the end of July. Hotel was pretty good over all. Staff was nice and friendly. We lucked out and got a balcony room on the 8th floor, the view was wonderful for sunrises and people watching in the evening. The beach is a short walk across the street and... More

I am here to do the timeshare tour because I am interested in buying. When I called the reservation department, I specifically asked for a balcony and was told I would have one. I knew ahead that I wasn't guaranteed one facing the ocean. If I had known I wasn't getting a balcony, I would have searched for somewhere else.... More

We had some odd room issues, Justine at the front desk made the stay great!! She was awesome and was on top of the odd issues and made sure Bill the property Manager was up to speed. Justine is the reason we would book and stay again!

Ocean Key is near the end of the beach away from the big crowds and hustle busrle, but still close enough for walking the beach and boardwalk. Great service and staff. Enjoyed our stay very much. Not beachfront property, but across the street. Would stay again.

My family of 3, joined my parents who own a timeshare at this resort for a few days. We were pleased with our room, the location of the resort, and customer service provided by the staff. The manager(Mr. Mitchell), is amazing and works very diligently to ensure that your stay is comfortable and that you are pleased with your accommodations.

If I ever head to VA Beach again, I will probably find somewhere else to stay. This hotel is not bad, but it is definitely not a resort. There is no outdoor pool and the indoor pool is very small and only 4 feet deep. It is also in need of updating.We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath room... More

I apologize that the Resort did not meet your expectations – although the units do have air conditioning, it can be a challenge when the temperature is in the high 90’s. Fortunately, we have a few days above 95 degrees h temps in Va. Beach. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. More

Overall the hotel was nice. The staff was friendly and its a short walk to the beach. However, a large portion of the beach on this end is designated for surfers and the lifeguards will blow their whistle at you if you get in their area. This was very frustrating because even when there were no surfers you could not... More

I sincerely apologize that we didn’t meet all your needs – the sprinkler system was accidentally triggered by another guest. Although we did our best to minimize the impact of the incident to your vacation, I agree that it was disruptive. I’ve noted your reservations that you prefer the opposite side of the resort for a quieter stay for future... More

Ocean Key Resort is not only a great place to vacation with your family but there is an excellent staff and a lot of interesting things to do while staying there. It is only one block from the beach which is easy access and away from the crowds around 18th street. It is very quite in the evenings in order... More
