After I review many comments online I decided to take a chance at staying closer to the beach. High prices in July made this four night stay well over $700 since they charge $212 on Friday and Saturday. I thought it would be nice to have the kitchenette so we wouldnt have to eat at resteraunts at $100 a meal.... More

1st thing I noticed was motel looks better in pictures. Looks like the pics online were taken about 20 years ago. It's a bit out dated at this place. 2nd the lobby smells like mildew. 3rd checking was 2 O'clock my room wasn't ready til 3:30. 4. The rooms for about 6 people but everything is outdated from the carpets... More

We booked our room on friday & drove down that day for a 2 night stay. The pictures I saw online didn't look to horrible but boy, were we wrong. We checked in around 11 pm & saw NO VACANCY. Our thoughts were, "thank goodness we reserved our room earlier that day". Got to our room, the elevator is super... More

I am by no means high maintenance when it comes to accommodations. After staying at Cerca del mar, I now know that I actually do care a little about where I stay. This place is absolutely bare bones. We wanted a place near the beach, but that also had a kitchenette. While it is definitely only a 2.5 block walk... More

The place was old and gross. Spend the extra money for a better hotel. The only thing positive about this hotel is the location and availability of the rooms. Its walking distance to the beach and shops.

ok so it is close to the boardwalk, but do they have to rip you off on VA Beach. this was two blocks away, no view, no breakfast, the clerk laughed when we said $116 was a lot for a basic room. yep, he was right, the whole area is over priced, go to florida, stay right on the beach... More

It's not fancy but it worked for us, your tag the beach for the beach not to stay in your room.. My 6 yr old Son and I swam in the pool and the beds were awesomely comfortable :) it's the bare necessities , staff was very nice helpful and friendly . I would stay again .

Yes, Cerca Del Mar is certainly not fancy, and you need to evaluate how high maintenance you are before booking! For the price, close location to the beach, service and amenities, I thought it was great. The staff was always friendly, AC worked well, the pool was clean, and I really appreciated the oven, microwave and full size fridge so... More

What we needed in a motel was a clean, cool room near the beach that we could afford. We found that in Cerca del Mar. It's rather dated and showing its age, with cracks here and there, but aren't we all. The desk clerk was very nice and accommodated the requests we made. The rooms have kitchenettes. There is a...

This motel is ok for the price. Virginia Beach is now way overpriced on the oceanfront and this is almost 3 blocks back...the beds a were comfortable and it the shower was hot. The full kitchen suite was very roomy. The sofa bed mattress was broken down, but we ended up not using it anyway. Bring your own cookware and... More
