“Great Hotel My "go to" hotel in VA Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

From the minute I walked to the front desk my stay was perfect. Weather was terrible - big rain storm but the hotel and staff were so cheerful I forgot about my terrible 4 hour drive.Onur Guduk, Front Desk Manager was wonderful Workmen were in the hotel painting, new carpeting etc and it was perfect before. It was very obvious to me that they cared about their guests and wanted their stay to be excellent.


My room was on the 12th floor. All rooms are oceanfront. The walkway to the rooms is all glass so you can see Atlantic Avenue and it is bright. Rooms were very clean, refrig, microwave, coffee, everything you need including free wi-fi.

Breakfast was great, I had the buffet. I go to VA Beach for business about 3-4 times a year: This will be my "go to" hotel!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Green Features: They have recycling on the rooms. Good lighting in the rooms even though they are energy efficient bulbs. Very energy conscious.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The room was clean, and the checkin process was very quick. Front desk staff were helpful, and friendly.
Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy during our trip. We could never get the room to a comfortable temperature. The bedding wasn't quite warm enough, and the water in the shower/bath never got very warm. We found in the end of our trip that the door that leads out to the balcony must not have a very good seal. Because once we closed the thick curtains it helped.

We ate at the hotel restaurant one of the nights we were visiting. Our waitress has two tables. She disappeared as soon as she took our order and never came back until we were finished. The cook brought us our food. And we had to ask the bar tender for our more drinks. We came in for dinner around 7:30 pm.

All in all... It wasn't really worth the money we spent for two nights. Our stay was rather mediocre, and I feel bad because this was my husbands birthday celebration gift. Not super romantic...

Our family took an impromptu trip to va beach. Weather outside was not so good being cold and rainy. Hotel was clean and we were very pleased. The only problem was gat the indoor pool was freezing cold. If it had been warmer this would have been a perfect trip.

I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday and we loved it! The room was immaculate and very comfortable. We lucked up and got an oceanfront room that was awesome!

The issues were:
1. It took a very long time for the check-in. This was because there was only one person working the front desk.
2. The wait to be seated at the hotel restaurant in the morning was soooo long. Our waitress Tiffany was very nice but it just took a very long time to be seated.

Hopefully the wait times would be reduced, but I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room near the elevators.

This has become our favorite hotel! We visited VA Beach for the first time in October, 2013 but did not make reservation in advance. After stopping at several hotels, we found this Holiday Inn. Onur Guduk, front desk manager, took such good care of us! The staff is great and very helpful, the rooms & hotel are clean, the location is perfect. We returned for a visit in April and are already planning our next get-away. Be sure to give this Holiday Inn a try but make sure it's the right one-- 2101 Atlantic Ave... and tell Onur hello!

Room Tip: Beach side for sure!

My family stayed here for our weekend getaway. This hotel is really nice and the staff was pretty friendly. We had a beautiful view. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. It is a little on the pricey side in my opinion ($13/person) but for us it was ok. Kids do eat free for breakfast and dinner, so that was a plus for us. We ended up parking our car and walking a little. This hotel, is in a fairly good spot. There are restaurants in walking distance. The pool was clean and there was a strong smell of chlorine. It didn't bother us that much. We still had fun. I would defiantly recommend this hotel to others.

This was an awesome and fun hotel. The room and bathroom were actually quite big. We were on the very top floor which had a great view of the ocean and the beach. I loved the pool, it was very neat. I also loved the halls and how on one side it was all window so you can see everything, it was really cool! The hotel is walking distance from all the restaurants and night clubs. Housekeeping was awesome by the way, our room and bathroom was always nice and clean! I had a really fun and memorable time here, If I ever go back to Virginia Beach I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Top floor!
