“Great location and Awesome staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We chose Econo Lodge on the Ocean because of trip advisor recommendations. We were not disappointed! It is an affordable spot which is a small, older hotel, but very clean. All rooms have a balcony view. The outdoor pool and sun deck are very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance. The continental breakfast was OK too..don't expect something fancy for this price! An added bonus was the use of free bikes on the boardwalk…what a pleasant surprise! On our next trip north along the coast we will surely stay at the Econo Lodge. (Be careful, there are two Econo Lodges on Atlantic Avenue. This one is on 2707 Atlantic Avenue.

Room Tip: I would choose the third floor because of the view. Keep in mind...No elevator. That was not a pro...

I've stayed at this hotel before and the service is always top notch, in addition to the fabulous views and clean room! The staff is very helpful and always has great suggestions for everything from dinner to movie theaters. I always feel like I'm staying with friends when I'm here. If you are looking for great service and great views then you will need to stay here!

Room Tip: The second and third floors have the best views.

My family stayed here for the whole second week of June and it was perfect! The staff were extremely friendly. Stunning oceanfront balcony view. Clean and quiet third floor room. Fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Nice outdoor pool and sundeck. Free wifi. Free continental breakfast. Perfect location...this hotel was great and we would stay here again!!!

Chose this hotel after reading reviews on here, there are many big hotel chains surrounding Ecno Lodge, if your expecting fancy rooms with 5 star service, then head to those. If you want an affordable spot on the beach with a fantastic balcony then this is for you! When i arrived i was worried it might be quite noisy at night, but actually it was anything but. The rooms are large there are sofas to relax on and look out at the sunsets if you don't want to relax on your balcony. The beach is literally at your feet. I can see why it is ranked Number 1 on Trip Advisor for VB.

We had a great time staying in this hotel. The ocean view is excellent and the area itself is not very crowded. We stayed in the 3rd floor and although there was no elevator, I felt the elevated balcony is worth it. The pool is not huge - maybe 4 families will make it feel crowded - but the kids enjoyed it. Best to use it when nobody or only a handful are using it. The room itself is nice and we had no problems with it. You won't find luxury but if you are considering this hotel, you are probably not after luxury anyway. The breakfast room is small so if you have a big group, just take your breakfast with you to your room.

We decided to extend our stay in Virginia beach and tried another hotel south (where there are more people and activity). We stayed on one that costs a little more but we realized afterward that it doesn't compare with the value we got at Econo Lodge. So if you just want to relax, stay at the northern area where EconoLodge is. If you want the crowd, stay south but be prepared to pay more for a comparable value.

Room Tip: Higher floors are much better.

I found the hotel in need of a facelift wth a small pool on the street side. Checkin was fine and the free bikes were nice but found one of the staff members just rude. There are nicer places at the beach for the same price or just a few dollars more.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review . We are very sorry we did not meet your expectations . I wish I had specifics regarding which areas of the hotel you found lacking so that we could address and rectify them . The hotel was completely remodeled in May ,2011 with all new furniture , bedding , and flat screen HDTV's .All of our rooms are thoroughly painted each year and are kept spotless by a vey experienced and dedicated housekeeping staff and the property is continually refreshed and inspected by an outstanding maintenance staff . As a family owned property , we take pride in our property and are available 24 hours a day to be of service to our guests . We endeavor to treat all of our guests with the utmost respect and courtesy ; therefore I was very dismayed to hear that you felt you were treated rudely by a staff member .We receive glowing remarks and comments about all of our staff's friendliness and warm hospitality from guests on this website as well as during their stay . I have distributed your comments to all of our staff and can assure you they are being treated seriously . I am available to discuss with you your concerns at any time and hope we can welcome you in the near future .

You really can't beat the location. the hotel was very very clean. The staff was nice and attentive, and the free bikes were awesome. All of the rooms are ocean front! Will stay again, very soon!
