We visited this hotel near the end of the summer and was a great experience, especially since it accommodates pets. The hotel was clean and had friendly staff. The rooms were spacious and well-kept with beautiful oceanfront views.

We've been going to VA Beach for the last 4 years and usually stay at the Oceanaire or Ocean Beach Club. This year we wanted to bring our dog and realized that there aren't many ocean front options that accept dogs. Being that this hotel is part of the Marriott family we decided to try it out. At an average... More

Hotel was clean and friendly staff, great location on the beach and boardwalk. The open up sofa was very very uncomfortable, but just we asked and got a form mattress cover so that helped. Pet friendly and breakfast was the usually eggs, pancakes, waffles, bread, etc. having the suite was great, can eat breakfast on balcony and listen to ocean.

Staff are friendly, but the hotel is in poor condition. Two stars for the friendliness. Hotel smells, bathrooms nasty and clogged, furniture is dirty. I understand that this hotel continues to generate revenue for Marriott during the summer due to the that lack of any "better" hotels in Virginia Beach, however, the company must pay more attention to such hotels....

I have been in several "Residence Inn by Marriott" hotels over the years. This particular hotel, to say the least is the worst of all of them. It is highly overpriced and we did not get the value of $304 a night we paid for a one bed room suite. We checked out of another "Residence Inn by Marriott" within... More

Thinking of past Marriott experiences, and the quality, we were sadly disappointed. The day before we arrived we received an email telling us of limited on site parking, but valet service was available and included. When we called, we were assured there was ample on site parking. Valet service was good except waiting at times 20 minutes to get the... More

We stayed at the VA Beach Residence Inn one night using Reward Points for my son's birthday. The posted rate was $400 a night I believe, so we were grateful to have enough points to pay $0! The hotel is a bit older and on the north end of the beach, quite close to the Poseidon statue. We've never stayed... More

We chose the Residence Inn for our week stay as it allows pets. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of our room (more clean than most hotels that DON'T allow pets). We chose a one bedroom, residential suite with a King and pull out sofa for two adults, two children (age 9 and age 11). The location and size... More

Spent two nights here. Found the king suite to be clean and comfortable albeith showing some wear and tear. The view was spectacular. Too bad the thermos seal was broken on one of the window panes in the bedroom; it partially blocked the view since it was perpetually foggy. Had a full size fridge, a dishwasher and a two-burner cooking... More
