Received this "2 star" "oceanfront" hotel on hotwire. Advertised as an ocean front hotel with swimming pool on hotwire add. This is the only hotel that has the pool closed in Virginia beach. It was not ocean front at all, you have to cross the street to get there. There are 5 floors, and you have to use the elevator... More

We stayed here for the Shamrock Marathon. (I ran the half and my wife ran the full.) The hotel was nicer than I expected given the price. The location was perfect for the races too. The best part was the staff let us stay late for check out so my wife could shower and rest a bit before heading back... More

I stayed at this hotel for the Shamrock Marathon and Half Marathon over St. Patrick's Day weekend. What a very pleasant surprise and great place to stay! The staff was friendly, welcoming and made check in a breeze. The room was small, but recently renovated and updated and very, very clean. The bed slept well too! From the outside, the... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for the VA Beach Marathon (March 2014), and was extraordinarily pleased. Now, it being March, I wasn't looking for a nice pool or anything like that... I was looking for a clean room that was close to the start and finish of the race... The check-in went very smooth, the room actually had 2... More

Very pleasant reception staff when arrived. Older place, very low ceilings but Ok in general. Dead roach in ice bucket bad enough, but "good" explanation; single ice machine for entire facility had been non-functional for quite a while due to cold weather. Front desk says it was the cold, some time ago. Not even a "sorry" or we are working... More

I stay here every time I run the Shamrock Marathon in March. So I'm not interested in the pool, or oceanfront, and don't need an elevator. But I do want a place to be clean. I believe they just remodeled this place in 2013 and I found our efficiency suite to be very nice. We only had 3 people staying... More

Got to experience this hotel in mid-March for a half-marathon. In all honestly, I "ended up" with a room at the Royal Clipper Inn because all of the other hotels in the area were completely booked. Thousands of other runners had planned early and booked rooms well in advance. There were 3 of us traveling, so I planned to get... More

I was in town for a course, and arrived on an evening that was very busy in town. The extreme party noise could not be helped, but the following definitely could: I arrived in my room (2/5 for presentation, kinda shabby) and had to go to the bathroom. I found a paper sleeve on it that said "sanitized for your... More
