“Great Deal in Off Season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Booked a basic low level streetside room in November directly with the local front desk at a great rate. When we checked in we received a deluxe oceanfront penthouse King. Very pleased. Only negative was room service. Quality of food was poor and it took three calls and three days to get the tray removed from outside our door.

This Holiday Inn was clean, quiet, comfortable, and every room has an oceanfront balcony. The hotel also has room service available. The rooms (including bathroom) are updated.
Our room had a refrigerator and coffee maker.
The service was wonderful. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our remote control was missing. I called the front desk and they delivered another one within 5 minutes.
We had a very good group rate...I'm not sure how regular season rates compare to other hotels on the Oceanfront.
The location of this hotel is great...easy access to walking anywhere on the boardwalk and parallel streets for shops, restaurants, and clubs. Parking is very limited, though, so if you need to drive from the hotel, leave in the morning and return before check-in time in the afternoon so that you can park beside the hotel instead of in overflow parking. Plan to walk to restaurants and entertainment if you can in the evenings, traffic is terrible!

Room Tip: Breakfast is not included. Room service is available, but a little expensive. Food was okay. Parking...

Thank you for staying with us and for the feedback on the hotel and staff. This is one of my favorite times of year to stay at the beachfront since you have it to yourself. For the most part the restaurant, bars and local events have no lines so you can walk right in. This time of year prices are reduced and we have breakfast included in the room rates for an additional $5 for your entire family. Weather is still in the 60's during the day and at night you have a front row sit to the Holiday Lights on the boardwalk. We hope to see you soon and thank you again.

I work with Virginia Tech University and brought a group of students up this past weekend for a tour of the area, and the hotel exceeded their expectations and mine as well. From check-in to check-out, they were treated like they were the only ones there, down to the personalized breakfast vouchers, and this is while there were several soccer teams and a wedding going on! They're already asking about when they can go back! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: All rooms were wonderful. If you're facing the beach, you're in for a treat. The sound of...

We really enjoyed hosting your VA Tech group. Your comments will be passed on to every member of the Oceanside Team at our associate rally on Friday. We look forward to the next time we could be of service to VA Tech since we have a number of former students and they were very pleased with the opportunity to support the team and school. Good Luck and Best Wishes from the Holiday Inn Oceanside staff.

I travel up to 8 months a year and stay in the Virginia Beach area for half of that time. I have now stayed in several hotels and have settled upon this hotel. After several months between my last visit, I was cheerfully greeted by Onur at the front desk. He was apparently new to the hotel but provided service as if he had been working there forever! Later in the visit, I encountered Danielle at the Front Desk who remembered me from my last visit. She is very enthusiastic, pleasant and provided superb customer service. She's a great asset to the hotel and should be commended for her most outstanding customer service.

The staff sets this place apart from the other hotels!

We spent 2 nights during the Thanksgiving Holidays and had a wonderful stay at this Holiday Inn. The rooms are furnished with a refrigerator and coffee maker (although there was hot coffee in the lobby every morning-nice amenity). All of the rooms have balconys facing the ocean. We had a nice and quiet stay and rooms were super clean and nicely remodeled. Every single person at the front desk that we encountered was helpful, friendly, and super nice working hard on a long holiday weekend. Our son enjoyed the swimming pool as well.

I spent almost two months at this wonderful hotel (October and November). The staff was outstanding, better than any I have come to know. I wish to command Ms. Crystal, at the reception counter, a very professional yet kind and caring person whose honest smile is a comfort, and Ms. Amanda, her Supervisor, very much like Crystal. Both made me feel comfortable and appeased my fear when Hurricane Sandy was approaching, then hit us -though lightly compared to New Jersey. They always took time to make sure all was well.

Among the cleaning staff, Myrtha and Delores stand out. Very discreet yet set on leaving my room clean and organized. There are many others whose name I did not get, including at the restaurant and the Bar (both much fun); and Maintenance (fixed anything within minutes).

I look forward to my next trip in Virginia Beach! (I live on the West Coast)

Room Tip: I explained what I wanted to Crystal and she put me in the best room for my taste.

The room itself was clean. Very small for a family of 5 but I had figured it would be before we went. Had a nice choice of continental breakfast , but the flies were really bad inside the eating area. The front desk staff was helpful, but the cleaning employees did not speak English. It did have a nice view of the ocean and was in the middle of the boardwalk attractions which made it convenient.
