“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

First time in the area for a weekend get-away. Very convenient to highway, great restaurants, and shopping. Reasonably clean room with a variety of amenities. Cafe features average food that is slightly overpriced. Hotel and cafe staff were prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. Looking forward to coming back.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Oceanfront/South Courtyard for a few days at the beach. The hotel is in a great location with eacy access to the interstate. The lobby has had the "Courtyard refresh" with the modern check-in desk, coffee/bar area and restaurant with limited menu. We stayed in a two room suite that was adequately furnished with with plenty of room. We enjoyed the two balconies with outstanding ocean views and overlooking the boardwalk. The hotel is located on the boardwalk and there were numerous restaurants and bars within an easy walk. Ovearll the hotel was clean, well maintained and the staff were attentive and courteous.
Parking at the hotel is somewhat limited, but they do have a gated parking garage directly across the street.

Thank you for the nice comments about our hotel! I'm glad you enjoyed our amenities and I'm happy to hear our staff was able to take care of you. One the nice features of our hotel is its central location, right in the middle of Beach Street USA. There’s excellent dining and attractions right outside the hotel, and I’m happy you were able to take advantage of some of those.

Thanks for staying with us, and I hope to see you on a future trip to our area!

We stayed here in August 2012. Having never been to VA Beach before I didn't know what to expect. I have had terrible experiences with beachfront hotels in Daytona. Hotel was in a great location, walking distance to everything and perfect spot beachfront on boardwalk to get on a bike and explore. Must do the bikes! Beach was good here too, my kids loved the waves perfect for body boards. The hotel was clean, elevators took a little though not enough in my opinion but not too bad either. Room was clean, standard size, i would say a 3.5 star hotel, nothing luxurious enough to give it a 4 or 5 but for beachfront hotels on the atlantic this was very good. No bed bugs, and staff was exceptional! Everyone i encountered at the front desk really went our of their way to be friendly and accommodating. There was plenty to do day and each evening and thelocation of this hotel put you right in the middle of it... the north hotel would have required a bit of a walk to put you where the action was. Never had a problem with noise and sleeping, even when opening the sliders to hear the waves. You can't go wrong with this hotel. I only saw two others that I may have considered, this one was way better than all the rest. We will return.

Thanks for the great comments about our hotel! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The bike rentals are a great feature for our guests in the warmer weather, and can be rented at a shop directly across from our hotel. The entire Virginia Beach boardwalk is 3.1 miles long, and we are located at mile 1.5, so you have great sightseeing options if you head north or south of the hotel. And of course, the beach is right at your doorstep.

I’ll be sure to pass your comments on to our staff and let them know you enjoyed your stay. Thanks so much for staying with us!!!

I'm a big Courtyard fan and this location is nice until you look close. My biggest issue is the bathroom safey. I fell because the bathmat slipped. I knocked my head hard enough to have to stay up half the night (wasn't going to the ER because I did not passout). Since I had been drinking earlier in the evening I did not report, but we were unable to do anything else while there because of the pain. A little TLC - stain pen for the headboard, hot water (without 5-7 minute wait), balconey door needs WD40.

Wait staff Wendy-EXCELLENT! They need more of her and she needs a raise.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are not as pictured and request for high floor, and extra pillows not completed.

My husband and I were looking for a nice friendly place to stay overnight for our 14th year Anniversary. The front desk staff welcomed us with big smiles and wonderful "Happy Anniversary" greetings the minute we walked in the door! The room was spotless and more than comfortable and we will definitely stay at this location next year! Thank you to the entire staff for making our special day/night a relaxing and enjoyable mini-vaca!

We have stayed at the Marriott Courtyard South in Virginia Beach four times located at 25th street. The stay has always been very good. Rande at the front desk is one of the most personable people I have ever met. He is always extremely helpful and very friendly. All the rooms have recently been remodeled. Out last visit there was during the 2012 Neptune Festival held at the end of Sept thru Oct 1. They have a good breakfast buffet. I would recommend staying at the Marriott Courtyard South. We have stayed at the Marriott Courtyard North twice, but the Courtyard South is closer to the action. If you haven’t been to Virginia Beach it is a great place to go and enjoy yourself.

Room Tip: The presidential suites are very nice. They have two rooms.
