1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2006

I am a Virginia Beach local and attended a Conference here in Nov 2005 (i.e., I did not spend the night here). The first thing I noticed when I walked into the hotel was an extremely offensive odor - a combination of mold, mildew, sour milk and intense industrial cleaner. This spell permeated all of the public areas of the hotel (lobby, bar, restaurant, conference rooms and public bathrooms) every day of the 5 days I reported for the conference (so it was not a one-time event). The toilets were frequently backed-up in the public bathrooms. Many of my co-workers found the hotel rooms to be just as bad - and moved to other hotels. BEWARE! And I have to return there for 2 more one-week conferences in 2006. I've already purchased a large bottle of Febreeze to "de-funkify" my clothes when I get home each evening.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2005

I stayed at this hotel July 26-28 for a business trip. After getting in Norfolk at 7:00am, I was happy to be checked in early at the hotel with a smile. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathrooms were clean and nice (the shower had one of those massaging nozzles :). During my stay, housekeeping threw away many of my important documents for work (thinking I had already checked out). I informed housekeeping and they retrieved my documents before they reached the dumpster (thank God). The manager's reception was nice, although I missed much of it. The pool was refreshing (both indoor and outdoor). The gym was nice, but since their air conditioner was broken, it was a pain to workout in the extreme heat. To apologize, the front desk gave us complementary passes to a gym down the street. Another bonus, the hotel is very close to interstate 264 & 64 and minutes from the oceanfront. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn. Its perfect for families as well as the business traveler, after all its an "Executive Center".
