The hotel was very nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the location and the ease to get to the beach. Nice to have a restaurant attached that had reasonable prices and the food was worth the price.

This hotel is in an excellent location. The rooms are a bit dated, but overall, it is an amazing value. The restaurant in the hotel offers great breakfast values as well. The rooms are clean and the front desk and cleaning staff are great. We have stayed here 4 times.

This was a good hotel for our stay. We stayed for two nights and we went to the room only for sleeping and showering. The proximity to the beach makes it an ideal hotel. You just need to cross the sand to get to the beach. You will not need to worry about crossing busy streets with all your beach... More

We have returned to this hotel for ten years in a row due to the value, location, and staff. Not sure what has changed over the past year, but I can already tell a big change just from our horrible check in and waiting experience/lack of excellent customer service. I hope that once we are able to actually get into... More

This hotel was very clean and convenient to everything. We stayed 3 days before the Hampton Jazz Festival in June 2014. The balcony overlooking the beach was delightful. We saw dolphins from there in the mornings. This is a no frills hotel, very economical and green. if you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. Toiletries... More

Excellent location and friendly staff! All rooms over look the ocean, and I recommend getting the package that includes breakfast from the Neptune located right in the Ocean Front Inn. It's not buffet style, it is fresh and made to order, I really enjoyed breakfast overlooking the beach, it was the perfect start to each day! I'll admit that rooms... More

There was sticky dust everywhere in the rooms. My hair stuck to the headboard!! Gross. Bathroom had sand all over the floor, but it was just cleaned?? Room smelled when we first walked in. Just disgusting, the cleaning staff needs to actually clean instead of listen to their ipads in the hallway. The front desk didn't speak to us unless... More

We have just returned from staying at the Oceanfront Inn in Virginia Beach, VA. The hotel staff were great but the room was dated (with rust evident in portions of the bathroom) but the worst part were the pillows. Overstuffed with foam cubes - great for sitting up in bed to watch TV (which we didn't do - we were... More

I was very pleased with this hotel! The place was clean and easy to find, there was plenty of parking, the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the pool was nice, easy beach access, great view from the balcony.... it goes on and on. Plus all of the rooms had a recycle bin which I thought was really cool!... More

This hotel needs some serious upgrades/tlc. I wore my shoes the entire time when walking inside the hotel room. Also the bathroom was disgusting, upon arriving there was someone else's long hairs on a washcloth. See pictures attached for crud, rust, paint chipping. This hotel is in desperate need of serious elbow grease for me to ever stay again.
