Ok, I stayed here YEARS ago, when it was the "Tropicana" back then the photos were fake. As I see, that has not changed. The rooms are absolutely different rooms. I recently was in VB and wanted to see if anything had changed...nope. Pool is still filthy, same dumpy rooms, just a new name. That is LITERALLY the only thing... More

I stayed here, or attempted to stay here in October 2007 when it was called the Tropicana "Resort". I cannot tell you that there is extreme disappointment at the reviews I am reading. Seems like deja vu. I was in town a few weeks ago an decided to see if after all of the terrible reviews over the years the... More

We needed a quick getaway from reality and this hotel was on point. Loved the upgrade to oceanfront view without an added cost. Truly appreciate the staff making changes to compliment our plans. Only concerns i would pick at is parking being a block away and had to leave cooler in car. Also, the heat in the room blew cool... More

Best value on boardwalk by far. Room was clean, nice view of ocean. Close to everything, park your car there an walk, everything is close. Staff was friendly, especially Nena was great, made me feel at home.

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE FACT THAT THIS HOTEL IS SITUATED RIGHT BY THE PIER. IT IS NOT WORTH IT. We took a last minute trip to Virginia Beach, it was our first time there and I thought the price was good for the location. WRONG. While waiting in the lobby to check in, we heard a family complaining... More

My husband and I decided to visit for the weekend to help celebrate my aunt's birthday. It was a last minute trip so many hotels had no vacancies or had a 3 or 4 day minimum stay. We looked at pictures online and spoke to a staff member from the hotel. The pictures looked pretty nice & the staff assured... More

The Sun and Sand hotel on the corner of Atlantic ave and 18th street needs to be investigated for bad accommodations. On September 6th my stay was a nightmare. The a/c in the entire hotel did not work. And me and my pregnant wife's room was 89 degrees, the remote control to the tv didn't work, the phone didn't work,... More

My boyfriend and i decided to just walk in and see if we could find a room for the night, the staff informed us that they had plenty rooms left. I was then charged $197.00 for a two bed room with no view. Normally id never pay that much but because we were so desperate for a room for that... More

The view from our room was beautiful but the room itself was outdated and the air conditioner did not work properly. The lobby was nice and chilled but after you leave the lobby the rest of the hotel is rather shabby. The staff was friendly but this hotel needs some serious updating. There was only one old elevator working. The... More
