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!

We stayed for 3 nights at the Oceanfront Inn. Great view from the balcony. Bathroom was extremely small. Very easy access getting to the beach. Breakfast was not included, but they have a fridge in the room to keep groceries.

The rooms could use a remodel but the location was fantastic. It's centrally located and within walking distance of dozens of restaurants and shopping. The Neptune restaurant served an excellent breakfast and lunch as well. One of the best aspects of the hotel was the staff. We found them to all be very helpful and very nice. There are fancier...

We had a great stay for the lifeguard competition. The staff was very polite. The hotel is a bit dated, but clean. The kids enjoyed the pool, and the beach was great. Had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs which was very good. Would recommend the hotel and the area.

My husband and I went here for a 5-night, 6-day getaway. This Inn is all about the location... our balcony had a lovely view of the beach and we saw the sunrise every morning! The hotel was clean and the pm staff (Clinton, Banvoleyo, Joy and Tony) were just great.. friendly and very helpful. The day staff was not the... More

Stayed her for two days. The staff was friendly and it was clean. No offensive smells or dirt anywhere. The place is a little old but even the restaurant attached served good breakfast. I'll definitley keep this in mind for my next stay on the beach.

We have been going to the Oceanfront for over 15 years. Honestly, it has always been about location on the strip and the beach access for us at a reasonable price. It is certainly no frills but the beds are comfortable and the room is pretty clean with all oceanfront views. The restaurant in the hotel, Neptunes, is actually a... More

This is my second stay at the Oceanfront Inn. I was there for a conference at the hotel next door. By staying at the Oceanfront Inn, I saved a lot of money over the Hilton and had a nice room with a private oceanfront balcony. The hotel has great free wifi. Parking was abundant and easy in and out. The... More
