Location was great! The night clerk was rude! I had to call the cops on her and the owner did nothing about it! Unacceptable behavior! When the cops showed up she wouldn't come outside, instead she hid. It's not worth the hassle for the money!!! Beware of this place!!!!!!!

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. The night clerk was extraordinarily good. Her customer service was top shelf. This is not a 5 star super expensive resort with white glove service. They are a small hotel in a city filled with giant chains. Don't expect it to be brand new. It is a bit worn around the edges... More

I don't even know where to begin. First of all I should say that I don't go online and review ANYTHING. Ever. I am doing this because this place was actually that bad. All the other negative reviews are very true. I read them after I was already checked in. I went with my 4 month old daughter, husband and... More

I was nervous about staying because of the reviews but since it was last min I went with it. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were old but they were clean. The bed sheets were clean no cig burns. I didn't see any bugs dead or alive, and the room stayed ice cold. Location was the best. Owners were nice... More

Rooms were not so great (as previously noted numerous times), but the location was great. There was "Sandstock" going on the weekend I was there (numerous cover bands on two stages on the beach). The stages were perpendicular to this hotel's patio and the music could be heard clearly. So money was saved on alcoholic beverages that one could drink... More

Paid for the room first, and the lady took my husband up to the room to show him where it was. When I finally got up there she had left and he was just standing there looking around. First, the smell of urine and mildew hit me. Then I noticed the bedspread was dirty and riddled with cigarette burn holes.... More

Rooms are musty and rundown. People at the desk are rude. the only thing this hotel has going for it is cheap but there are better deals this has got to be the worst hotel on Va Beach. can't say stay away enough times.
