My husband had planned a weekend away for our 1st wedding anniversary and this was far from anything you would imagine as romantic!- The pictures on the website are the furthest from the truth! When you check in the "office" is basically right on the street reminds you of a parking deck attendants booth. My husband requested a room on... More

spent 5 days, staff very accomodating, rooms spacious & well appointed. When we checked in the first room offered reeked of cigarettes. The auditor immediately offered another & let us look at 3. We ended up in 1104- top floor. We missed housekeeping 1 day (our scheduling mix up), but when we asked for room cleaning they came right away.... More

We just got back and had a great time! The price was so good ($89) I was worried about the condition but we are adventurous and booked our 4day spring break on a whim2 days before going. What a suprise! The room was much larger than I thought. Very clean (we stayed in 506) on the end and had TWO... More

This is our first time staying in this hotel and it will be the last. We were on the 10th floor and it was the worst day of my life! We should have known better when we saw all the full trash cans in the parking garage. But no..... we checked in and saw that they only had one elevator... More

What an awful odor upon entering. especially in the bathroom & greasy slimey floors, too bad---because is an excellent piece of property with fantastic view, tons of things to do in the summer! Bands at every street corner. Desperately needs refurbishing. Stained carpet. Definately would go back to Virginia Beach again, but NOT at this Hotel.

I checked in and checked out in a total of 20 minutes. The front desk is outside of the hotel with one employee, the room smelled and looked very outdated. We had no problem with paying the cancellation fee. I don't think I have to say anymore.

This was our second stay at this hotel and I will say that the suite we were given was better than the first. The only complaint that I had about the room was that the weather stripping on the front door was not installed correctly and we could hear the wind whistling through the door cracks, it took us 7...

We had a great stay. We stayed during the Neptune Festival which is a busy time and we had TWO rooms. One on the 2nd floor and one on the 8th floor (which was fine with us) and both rooms were great! I was really scared to stay here because of some of the reviews, but it was a GREAT... More
