My husband and I had a week reserved at Ocean Sands. We were not able to stay there due to construction problems. Ocean Key was an awesome alternative. We did miss our oceanfront suite in the beginning but enjoyed the larger room. This suite can sleep 4 comfortable it had a King size bed and a Queen size pull out.... More

I wish I was able to stay longer - the weather has been perfect! So many activities - loved Aqua Zumba & don't know how I missed the craft brew crawl van trip. The staff is wonderful and will be back this winter for more rest & relaxation! This hotel is not where all of the "action" is so it... More

The location of this hotel was perfect; it was on the quiet end of Atlantic Ave. There was an Italian Restaurant downstairs open until 2 am, a Sea Food Restaurant and access to the beach was directly across the street. There are ice and vending machines on every floor. The pool is located on the first floor but, nicely sectioned... More

My family and I went to spend a week at Virginia Beach. Ocean Key Resort had a sale. So, we stayed. It was a fantastic stay, It had a amazing view, and it had a nice clean pool. I would gladly tell my friends about the Ocean Key Resort if they're planning on going.

Reading the other reviews I was afraid to go to this resort. It turned out to be very nice, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small but we managed fine. Very close to the beach and restaurants. We upgraded to get balcony, glad that we did, enjoyed sitting and watching the activities. Got up early to do laundry only... More

We appreciate you sharing your experience from your recent stay with us at the Ocean Key Resort. I am glad to hear you took advantage of the beach, local restaurants, and upgraded to one of our balconies. We limit the hours of the complimentary guest laundry facilities to avoid disturbing our guests during our “quiet hours” . Thank you again... More

One bedroom was fine for the two of us. The location was the best, across the street from the beach and close to many good restaurants. Evening hours are "adults only" in the hot tub which was pleasant. We will return.

Beware of this "resort". In a Timeshare exchange I was not permitted access to available ocean view rooms with a balcony unless I submitted to a 90 minute sales pitch in which I would be required to hand over a lot of personal information, such as how much money I made!? No housekeeping services the whole week. Air was so... More

I apologize we didn’t meet all your needs and that you were not informed that we offer upgrades for balcony units for a nominal fee if you don’t wish to participate in our marketing offers. Our team thrives on delivering excellent customer service and I take your review seriously. More

The service at this resort was excellent. The only reason that I rated it as "Very Good" instead of "Excellent" is because of a minor indecent with a mirror that fell from the bedroom door and shattered just after our arrival. The management was more than accommodating. They immediately moved us to another room, instead of just sending someone to... More
