At first it seemed like an okay place to stay, but soon I learned it was not. The customer service from everyone working there was extremely poor. Some employees were even rude or didn't bother to have any manners. The pool, let's not even talk about... I'm not quite sure which was worse, the creepy pool attendant or not being... More

My husband and I went to Virginia Beach for a weekend getaway. We booked an oceanfront motel for Saturday and Sunday night, but since our work schedules allowed the extra time, we were able to arrive a day early. We could not get a room at our weekend motel, so we thought getting a cheap room a block away would... More

Booked on Hotels.com, charged more than advertised rate, poor parking and filthy, outdated rooms! provided only 3 small towels and had 2 random computer chairs in room. Room smelled musty, bathroom sink clogged, tub was dirty and wifi touch and go, parking was a disaster and we were barricaded in by management! when we went to leave in the morning,... More

Booked through Priceline. Thought we were getting a two bedroom suite as advertised but when we got there it was a one bedroom with a living room. We are not staying. Asking Priceline for refund. Trip was ruined! Warning - DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Bathtub had hair in it. Sheets had holes. Cigarette smoke seeps through the vents. People loiter outside smoking. They called me to come move my car while I was at dinner. I requested a refund to no avail.

STOP NOW AND LOOK FOR A DIFFERENT HOTEL!!!!!!!!!! Unless you are okay with sleeping with spiders and other unknown creatures. The rooms smell like a mix between mold and sewage. I could barely stand to be in the room for more than 2 minutes. The one bed had a large brown stain, the air conditioner was in several pieces, there... More

I cannot speak about the rooms, as we never got to see one. We booked on Priceline. Showed up at 11pm to a closed office. When we knocked at the window a woman came, looking very angry to have been roused out of bed. She informed us they had no rooms. We told her we had a reservation, she insisted... More

My friend and I have stayed in some pretty bad hotels and motels, but nothing compares to the Sandpiper Inn. I was yelled at, hung up on, and called nasty names by the manager multiples times. She repeatedly lied to me about her identity, claiming that there was no manager to speak to each time I called (I could hear... More
