The view is certainly nice, but there are many hotels along the beach here and they will have the same views. Hopefully they will NOT have the heating/cooling system of this place.....I am writing this at 2:30 in the morning as I am wide awake with the incessant LOUD noise as the heat runs nonstop.....who knew it would take 2...

Your staff at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront were excellent. The valet service was top notch! Your pool and hot tub area was great and much needed! You laundry area was leaking water from the ceiling, but your staff was working on fixing it. When my family stays at a hotel we first seek out a Residence Inns. We drive extra... More

My husband and I stayed here on our east coast spring road trip and it was beautiful to wake up with the sunrise! The room was small for a Residence Inn, but the balcony and view we worth the size! We woke up to see the sun coming up and porpoise jumping in the water- just beautiful. The hotel is... More

Everyone at this hotel is so very nice and helpful! It's probably the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Housekeeping was great bringing me what I needed and calling and checking to see if we needed anything else.

I spent two weeks at the property on a business trip. I travel extensively for business and really appreciated the professional and courteous nature of the staff. From the front-desk to the valet, including the housekeeping staff were all pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The layout of the rooms made sense and all...

We come here Every winter ! Love the ocean, but hate the summer beach crowds . All rooms are suites & face the ocean, with a full size kitchen . Feels more like staying in your own condo than a motel room ! Staff always very friendly . Wonderful breakfast including eggs, potatos, meats, etc. It is a pet motel,... More

To be fair, my husband and I knew in advance that this hotel accommodates pets. We weighed that when deciding where to stay for a winter getaway to the beach. In the end, the opportunity to have a kitchen right on the beach swayed us to book here even though we really don't prefer "pet friendly" hotels. There was a... More

I truly loved my stay at the Residence Inn. The staff really rolled out the welcome mat for us, making sure our every whim was met. I love that this is a pet friendly hotel.
