Hotel is very old, outdated, and very musty. All the things said about the McDonalds is true, but ownership only takes profits and puts nothing toward updating beyond flat screen TV in the rooms. Tiles in the bathroom cracked, kitchen counter broken and draws too. Stale smell of smoke along with a strong musty smell as you walk in. 2... More

I chose the Sundial because of the price and its proximity to the beach. I was not disappointed by either, but the hotel itself is a real fixer upper. Our room was a good size and it was clean, but the hotel itself is old and the furnishings are really out of date. There was a microwave and a fridge.... More

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The rooms were very clean and the service was great. The employees at the front desk were very helpful and exceptionally nice! The only con was the lack of breakfast, but other than that, it was amazing

If you go to the Beach in the middle of Summer, what do you want? A reasonable rate, walking distance to anything you might need, and a clean room with cold air conditioning right? Well, this is EXACTLY WHAT WE GOT! Add to that awesome service as we were allowed to check in early because our room was ready! Several... More

My Family stayed here for a week. 6/7/15 to 6/12/15. Price was very reasonable for the area around $400 for the five days. We stayed in room 207. The room itself was OK. Older but clean besides smell of stale cigarette smoke. It was bearable after spraying some deodorizer. The beds were quite old and not very comfortable. Pillows were... More

I and my two daughters traveled to Virginia Beach over the weekend for a sand soccer tournament. In an effort to save a few dollars, I opted out of the oceanfront team hotel and made a reservation at the Sundial. Though some of the reviews were bad, I decided to take a chance because I thought there were more good... More

This hotel was just right for what we needed, room was clean, staff was very friendly, beds not to uncomfortable. Close to everything, room smelled a little funky, what I didnt like was people smoking out side of a non smoking room, but you will have that. We got what we paid for!!!! Would stay here again

Nothing fancy but for the price was near the beach and very clean. Service was good. It is very hard to find a not too expensive hotel near the beach. 100.00 per night when most place in the area were over 200.00 per night. Other hotels in the area at that price range were not clean.
