Stayed here while picking up relative from Navy base. First impression, bad! Lots of partying has gone on here... Carpet in bedroom was nasty, never walked around without shoes on. 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 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

Friendly staff/management- everyone greeted us when we saw them and management was easy to find if you had a question or concern. Good rate Maids made beds, took out trash and bought clean towels/wash cloths everyday(although they... More

Not a very picky person, but this place is disgusting! The beds, floors, and towels were dirty. There was mold all around the mini fridge. Food around the microwave.The staff was not friendly when we complained. They simply moved us to a new room. Which by the way was not any better! This place should be shut down. Or only... More

Pulled up to the hotel, didn't expect much. Got to our first room, and it wasn't even cleaned from the last people who used it. The manager apologized and we got a room with limited ocean view. The pool is a little bit small, and the outside appearance is kind of old school as well.
