Great rooms and friendly staff they opened our room early and even refrigerated insulin for us until we could get into the room very pleased with the room and bathroom. I love the fact the room was tiled and not carpet.

The rooms are nice and very clean! The front desk staff was super nice and even allowed us to check in early because my grand daughter had insulin that needed to be refrigerated. 1 block from the beach.

My family of 3 shared a double twin bed room. I really though for the price paid it was an excellent deal! If you're looking to stay on a budget this place is great. I didn't notice the room being dirty or anything and the staff was nice. Very short walk to the beach and the shops are right there.... More

Went to drugstore across street & bought bleach for cleaning jacuzzi & bathroom....did not know what we could catch in there. One day no cleaning of room at all, just... More

Dirty rooms, broken furniture terrible attitude. You need to be really drunk to think that this hotel is reasonable. All our complaints were disregarded by the manager of that filthy motel. The hotel manager tried to pin his broken furniture on us and sent us to complain on line. Guess what? We just did.

Booked after reading reviews for other similarly priced places in VA Beach area. We found it to be clean, convenient, and roomy! Had a kitchenette - great amount of space for 4 adults. (Do bring all kitchen items you may want as it's not stocked but does have full size fridge, stove, oven, and microwave) Rooms have been recently remodeled... More

The sheets had been used right before (a lot of stains), there is dirt on the ground and a lot of mold in the showercourtain. The AC stopped working at the night , but at least our room would...

The Good- Great location! The room was decent for what we payed. ( The bed was small) But room was clean and did not stink of ciggeretes. The Bad- if you are looking for a good uninterrupted night of sleep this is not the place. Between party goers at the bar beside the hotel, fire trucks etc you will not... More
