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

Staff: Every single person that I dealt with, from the valet to the front desk personnel, were absolutely wonderful. They were so polite and helpful. Every question that I had was met with a smile and thoughtful response. I even called the day prior to check in to request an early check in option. The front desk person (Ryan) called... 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. (Might sound crazy, but my parakeets really enjoy a good road trip!) Views from the room are just gorgeous. Never mind that the hotel doesn't... More

This review is about space-- the rooms were the size of a dozen other Residence Inns in which I've stayed. Everything else about this clean and new RI is small. Parking lot is small. The lobby is small; pool is small; breakfast area is small, and most of all the balcony overlooking the ocean. That is tiny. The bedroom doesn't... More

Great location and fantastic view...Spacious suite...Breakfast is free and offers many choices. Good valet service although I wish the garage is closer. Some Housekeeping staff don't speak English. Had a little trouble with WiFi...Different spots in our suite had strong ammonia smell.

Every summer I spend it at Virginia Beach with family. This hotel is excellent for an oceanfront location. This was my first time to stay here and now won't be my last as we loved it. They have the typical breakfast for a Residence Inn and that was good (we always love to make the waffles). It was a quick... More

The hotel is in a great location and on the beach. Our view from the balcony was great. The suite was spacious and comfortable. The large kitchen with full size frig and table for four was convenient. We comfortably slept 5 with the two large beds and sofa pull out. Having 2 TVs gave extra options for teens vs mature...

Our family has enjoyed staying here a number of times. Can't beat the location. Convenient to Neptune's Park (which often has live music in the summertime) and a number of restaurants and shops, and in the heart of the boardwalk. And of course right on the beach!
