My husband and I stayed here when we were in Norfolk. The room was clean and basic with a king size bed that hurt our back (due to it being a spring bed), the outside of the hotel (i.e. walkways, stairways, etc) were really run down. It reminded me of what an apartment complex dealing with serious drug addicts would look like. The area that it's in isn't exactly the safest part of Norfolk nor is it the most dangerous but there is gang activity in that area (despite the fact that an elementary school/primary school) is just across the road.
It' a shame as well because it's literally just off of I-64, the beach is literally across the road; there are places to eat in that area and yet, the hotel itself is absolute crap. They claim to do breakfast as well - where? There's no room. The front desk isn't inviting either - it looked like it was built in the late 1970s to early 1980s and stayed like that. There was even an option to "rent" movies -- on VHS tapes! Plus loads of dust and dirty windows.
