We booked a room at the Sundial because due to an event in town, literally everything oceanfront was booked solid. At the time of booking, the Sundial Inn was the 'highest rated' hotel in the area with availability. As our travel date arrived, I read the other reviews of this place and found myself very very nervous. I was pleasantly... More

Give this one a swerve. NO, actively avoid. Other reviews posted here seem to be from another era, planet, or at least other management. The only part that still fits is the price – MAYBE. For the nights I (regrettably) booked, the low price was accurate, however for the following nights and into the coming season they wanted something like... More

For the price and location to the ocean, you can't beat the Sundial. It's right off the bar strip, close to a dozen restaurants, and across the street from the boardwalk. We paid less the $50 for the room. Sweet deal.

I'm not sure why people were giving bad reviews. This hotel is nothing fancy, but the prices should tell you that. My boyfriend and I went with my best friend and her boyfriend and we had a great time! the location of this hotel was great! a block and a half from the beach, one block from the main strip....

We decided to make a second trip to Virginia Beach this year. We only came down for a four day weekend. Check in was fast and very easy. The clerk working was very nice. We found a place to park. It wasn't the biggest lot I've ever seen, but not the smallest either. We get all of our stuff out... More

Spent 500$ for a two night stay at the end of August. That was not a surprise but I will spend the extra money to stay in a nicer hotel or stay in one farther from the strip and deal with paid parking. Sirens and loud music lasted until 3am all weekend. I think they could at least afford a... More

My wife and I were supposed to stay for two nights, but ended up checking out after the first, due to all the problems we had. The night that we got there, we notified the front desk that the bathroom was dirty (with caked on dirt in the tub and the previous guests' used washcloths hanging on the shower curtain... More

It's all about expectations. If you're looking for a basic room, that's clean, safe and close to the beach, then this place is the way to go. This isn't the Hilton, it's not even a Motel 6. But I had my kids here and had no complaints. Desk staff was friendly, pool was small but clean, parking was easy and... More
