We (family of four) stayed here for a few nights after returning from overseas duty while waiting for our furniture to be delivered to our home in the area. We were very impressed with the room size, amenities (small refrigerator, sitting area, two comfortable queen/full beds, free local phone calls, free internet in room and in lobby), and generous breakfast. The entire facility was very clean and the staff was pleasant and professional. Nice small in-door pool, jacuzzi and gym that met parents' and kids' interests.
The Monarch Sports Bar on the ground level is new and very pleasant (esp since tennis was on one of the 15+ flat screen TVs).
There are no other similar options this close to ODU or the main Navy base. The budget hotels further north on Hampton Blvd are overrun with lower end clientele and the surrounding environment is not as nice. Compared to the downtown hotels near the waterfront, this is a better value and more convenient in terms of access from highways for out-of-towners and parking (only $5/night in new garage next to lobby -very safe, well lit and uncrowded).
Room availability can be tough since the word is out about this great hotel - I've heard rave reviews from ODU parents. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families or military personnel on temporary assignment to the Navy bases close by.
Bravo Zulu to Marriott and ODU for opening SpringHill Suites at this location!
