We've stayed here for like the past eight years and its always been great. Last year we made the mistake of trying something new, the Breakers, big mistake! Called The Oceanfront Inn after checking in to the mistake and asked for our "usual" room. It was available and cheaper than usual! Great place and nice staff! Tip: ask for the... More

We enjoyed our stay last time at the Oceanfront Inn so we came back for more! Comfortable, affordable, warm indoor pool in the off season (we've never been during the summer) and a very nice attached restaurant. Everything we needed for those last few cold days near the end of March! We didn't 'have' to leave the building, but we... More

We've stayed at the Oceanfront before and found it acceptable, but with a couple small issues--mostly in attention to details relating to the cleanliness of the place. We again found it overall pleasant. We were greeted pleasantly and booked in with no problems. We noted a couple issues in the bathroom, nothing that a good scrubbing with some attention to... More

When we first booked this hotel it looked great! Right near the ocean, and having guaranteed view. But it quickly lost stars in our book as soon as we turned the corner and saw our "4 star hotel". -The people at the desk were very rude, didn't even acknowledge us walking in to check in, then didn't try to keep...

We had a Handicapped room on the third floor. Two cleanliness issues disgusted us. The bathroom floor was filthy, what looked like feces and urine on the floor around the toilet. The draperies were covered in a thick layer of dust! The shower control knob fell off when turned on. Ugly. Too bad for an otherwise good value hotel.

I purchased the New Year's package with this facility which included bar crawl, dinner @Crocs Restaurant, and New Year's bash later that evening @Crocs Restaurant. All events were just what the night called for, but the hotel accommodations were less than par! It was out dated and brought down the feeling of the whole night. A better place to lay... More

As other reviewers have said, the rooms are a little outdated but very comfortable and clean. The pool was clean and very warm- an earlier review said the pool was saltwater but it was definitely HEAVILY chlorinated during my stay in December 2013. A little awkward to get from the pool to the elevators so bring sandals and a cover-up... More

After reading the reviews on here, we were nervous about staying at The Oceanfront Inn. For about $50 a night it wasn't to bad. The rooms were outdated but comfy. The private balcony was nice and the views were spectacular. We couldn't get the refrigerator to work but that was because it was unplugged. It must be part of their... More

I frequent Va beach and LOVE coming and trying different hotels...it is beyond me why not EVERY hotel takes special care to clean the sliding door? The first... More

Thank you Oceanfront Inn for your attention to those in wheelchairs. With so many Wounded Warriors, some of our elderly and others who find themselves physically challenged, Oceanfront Inn has bathrooms that are well-done for the handicapped. Virginia Beach should be proud of this hotel that is fairly priced, friendly, clean and strategically located on the Boardwalk. I've paid five... More
