I visited this hotel with high expectations and I was gravely disappointed. There was a smell of old mop water throughout the hotel and mostly everything was outdated. I was very disappointed in my stay.

My wife & I decided to go to Virginia Beach after the crowds were gone. We stayed at the Oceanfront because we had stayed there when the kids were young. We requested a room on a higher floor when we booked several weeks earlier. We arrived earlier then the check-in time, but our room was ready and they let us... More

I booked this hotel for friends and family for the Rock'n'Roll Half-Marathon over Labor Day weekend. It was expensive (although not as expensive as other hotels on the boardwalk), even with the Half-Marathon discount, but the location and view made it worth it. No bells and whistles, the hotel is what it says an "Oceanfront Inn". There's an indoor pool... More

You know those oceanfront hotels that smell musty, aren't maintained well, have thrift store furniture, and the service is non-existent. The Oceanfront Inn is NOT one of those hotels. It is well maintained, especially for a relatively small hotel (compared to the big chains), good service all around, and comfortable and clean rooms. It is a pretty good value for... More

Have stayed several times over the years! Location and staff are wonderful! Could use some updating with the A/C and bathroom and a little bit more attention to cleaning would make a world of difference. Beds are comfy, nice flat screen TV, no microwave, fuffy towels, great water pressure in the shower and a Wonderful view.

I read some of the negative reviews and was a bit skeptical prior to our arrival but figured we would roll with it and im so glad we did!!! The rooms were clean... More

We stay here every time we go to Virginia Beach because the Staff & especially the Manager Ken are always accommodating and friendly. The rooms are upgraded and nice & always clean. The H/P room is wonderful and the balconies are Ideal to sit & watch & listen to the music on the Beach in May. The Neptune Restaurant has... More

This was our first visit to The Oceanfront Inn. We take our whole family, so we had four rooms. My children and grandchildren joined us for this delightful visit. For the past 30 years, we stayed at a well-known resort, further up the beach. We spent 30 years over-paying, and being treated by snobs. We never had a real ocean... More

This has been my fourth time staying at the Oceanfront Inn here at va beach. You can't find a better place for the value! The staff (front desk, housekeeping, grounds, etc) are all always so friendly and helpful. I've never been disappointed with my stay here. Every room is an oceanfront view at the cost of a city view room... More

This hotel is very very very old, poorly maintained and and ill-smelling. Bathroom hygiene is precarious. The pool didn't seem very clean too. The restaurant inside offer a buffet menu for dinner, but we didn't try it as the hygiene of the rest of the hotel. Such a bad experience for 250$ a night!
