We were unable to go out of town this past Memorial weekend. So we did a semi vaystatiom and drove 20 minutes to the Virginia Beach oceanfront and stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn. We rented a king room meaning it had a king-sized bed that was very comfortable and a small kitchenette. The room was clean and comfortable. I... More

We typically go to Ocean City, MD with our 4 kids every year (oldest is 15). We thought we'd try something different this year and booked a room at VA Beach. I am a Marriott gold member and was able to book the room with points. When we arrived in the morning, our room was not ready. No big deal... More

Been here several times, oceanfront, first class, great view, nice balcony --- Room great, staff including front desk manager, Dwenda Mosley and Manager, Cindy Pembrook, are what caring and top notch employees are all about.

Everything was wonderful , but the ac unit in closet in bedroom was so very noisy, like a truck was in our room! they really need to upgrade, but because of floor to ceiling windows i guess theres nowhere to put it! Manager was nice enough to refund us our pet fee. we stayed 4 nights, it was almost unbearable,... More

It appears that Marriott has purchased a few "slumps" on the boardwalk/oceanfront and have slapped the Marriott name on them. Upon arrival, there is LITTLE to NO parking for guest, there was no valet on duty. Entering the building, the entrance/registration area is directly in front of the door and lots of passing guest coming from the elevator. The crowded... More

I stayed here for a week and we had stayed here 2 years ago. The staff was amazing and courteous. They were ready and willing to help with anything! I almost didn't think this hotel was pet friendly because of how clean it is! The breakfasts were hot and delicious and several week nights they have a managers special, which... More

My father recently stayed at the Residence Inn in VA Beach enroute to a family vacation in the outer banks. They made him valet park since the lot was full. All seemed fine with the experience until he left the next day. The valet parker actually opened a bottle of whiskey and appeared to have taken a drink. I called... More

Needed a room quickly -- and Residence Inn saved me. This hotel reaches all the high standards of amenities and service that you would expect from a Marriott property. Price is in line with other oceanfront hotels, and the staff could not have been more helpful!

We stayed here for 5 days and had an enjoyable stay. Loved the view from our room of the beach - genius idea to have a floor to ceiling window in the bedroom. All rooms in the hotel are on the beach side - so all rooms have a view of the beach and a balcony! Stone-throw distance to the... More

My husband and I--along with our dog--enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn. Although the room furnishings and decor were a bit dated, our suite was large, comfortable, and clean. We selected this hotel because of it's dog-friendly policy. This hotel truly is dog-friendly, allowing dogs in communal areas such as the lounge in the lobby and the outdoor patios,... More
