Room was clean and spacious except for the bathroom. I have never seen a bathroom this small. Breakfast was very enjoyable if you are sitting outside and enjoying the boardwalk. The inside dining area was cold, dark and dated. Tried to sit down for dinner and atmosphere was not there. Not a very welcoming place for dinner. We got up... More

We stayed for three days. And after a mix up with us not knowing our room number which was fixed by us going back to the front desk. It was a great hotel. Very friendly staff and we could walk anywhere we wanted. The pool was clean even this late in season and open. We passed on eating at the... More

Clean ocean front room at a great price and a super friendly staff. Indoor pool was clean and not crowded. Free parking and free wifi. Request a room on a higher floor for a great view of the ocean. Walking distance to plenty of restaurants and shops.

My husband & I wanted a little getaway by the ocean and after researching many hotels in the area for an oceanfront room, this was our pick. Very happy with our decision. Private balcony, very clean room and friendly staff. Rooms aren't huge but perfect for 2 people. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I come in every year for the NAS Oceana Air Show. We have stayed at Oceanfront Inn one other time and should have stayed here again but made our reservations at the Sheraton. I called the Sheraton's toll free number and asked for a ocean room what I got was a Jacuzzi handicap room with a slit... More

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 There was a smell of old mop water throughout the hotel and mostly everything was outdated.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
