“Love this property!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I checked in on 9/15/13 late in the evening. Greg (I hope I'm getting his name right) checked us in. The hotel was full and we ended up having a room type discrepancy since we arrived later than we had wanted. Greg totally helped us out and was able to get us into our preferred room type early the next morning...we really appreciated his professionalism and kindness. The hotel is very clean, and even though the property itself is on the older side they have taken steps to make it look modern. It's very convenient to have a microwave and fridge in the rooms, and the view is unbeatable. It's a beach hotel, so you have to make allowances that it is going to have a little more wear and tear than a typical hotel, but it's within an amount that is not a problem at all. Parking couldn't be easier or more convenient. Also, any time we had restaurant questions the front desk staff knew exactly the place to recommend. Very, very happy with this vacation and this hotel does everything they can to make your trip go smoothly!!! I'm sure we'll be back.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are worth it!

Thank for the taking the time to leave us such positive feedback about your visit in Virginia Beach! I am thrilled to find out that Greg was able to assist you with the check in and room transfer process. I am happy to hear that everything worked out well and that you had a fantastic stay with us! Our entire hotel was renovated just over a year ago, and we are proud to show off our modern and refreshing new look. The Front Desk staff enjoy directing our guests to local restaurants that we know will hit the spot. Give us a call when you are ready to come back!

Thank you,

My husband and I stayed here three nights while in town for my nieces wedding. One of my best hotel experiences ever. Rooms were spacious and clean. The location is great and the staff is amazing. They were super friendly and went out of their way to make it visit great. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

It's a beautiful beach and beautiful hotel. But best are the beautiful people who work there. Special shout out to Raquel who accommodated us for a day-early arrival, then upgraded us to a Presidential Suite (I'd asked if we could be upgraded to a corner room). WOW! I'll never stay anywhere else at Virginia Beach.

Room Tip: If you're an elite member, ask for a room upgrade. They're happy to make you happy.

Stayed here over labor day weekend for the rock n roll half as well as a girls weekend birthday getaway. The hotel was in the perfect location for everything and exceptionally clean. We were greeted by Randy and he went above and beyond for us! I have nothing but amazing things to say about the staff at the hotel, Randy and Raquel at guest services were exceptional. They went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The restaurant staff, Liz, Shekela and Marshall were also amazing. The restaurant staff was so exceptional that during our 3 day stay we only went to a different restaurant once! This staff is truly incredible and made our race/birthday weekend better than we could have ever imagined. Whenever i'm headed to VA Beach this is my hotel!!!!!!! Save our booth for us on the patio :)

My friends and I stayed here for the half marathon over Labor Day weekend. The trip started off awesome, we got there early, Randy and Raquel at the front desk hooked us up with anything we needed. Any time we walked by the front desk and those two were working we left laughing. Our room was clean and had a great view. The bistro staff is AMAZING, yall rock! Liz (we have more bottle caps for you), Marshall (your wings are to die for) and Shekecla (thanks for saving our corner booth for us)!!! We had a great time down there, the staff made us feel at home. Cant wait to come back!!!!

We love this hotel the location is great, right on the beach/ boardwalk, and all the staff members are SO friendly and attentive. We had a beautiful view from our room of the ocean /beach, it was so nice sitting out on our private balcony looking at the ocean. There are so many restaurants and shops within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the room attendants /housekeepers did a great job everyday keeping the rooms /hotel clean!
The best part of this hotel are the great staff members! They are all very friendly and helpful. Any where we went in the hotel the staff would always say hello & tell us to have a good day.
Our favorite staff members are Rande, Amanda, and Shakeela, they're awesome!!!! I loved getting a Starbucks coffee every morning (skinny vanilla latte w/ an extra shot of expresso!) at the Bistro from Amanda & Shakeela! They are SO friendly and sweet! They made my morning /day start off right!
Our room attendant /housekeeper was wonderful, and patient on the mornings we slept in and relaxed! When we went to the beach late in the morning or to lunch in the afternoon, we always came back to our room clean & perfect, no matter what time of the day.
All the staff members at this hotel are so friendly & personable, which made our vacation /stay at the Marriott the best! That's very important to us.
We had an awesome & relaxing stay. Can't wait to come back to VA beach & stay at the Marriott Courtyard oceanfront south!! Thank you!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the first time and had a great experience. The hotel is right on the beach and has excellent views, along with a café that has outdoor oceanfront seating-- the perfect way to enjoy the hotel's breakfast buffet. Our room was much bigger than we expected and was clean and comfortable. There is only an indoor pool at this hotel, but with the beach right there it really was not an issue for us. We are kind of gym rats and the gym is pretty small, so we used it for the weights and then just walked the boardwalk. I have to say the staff was some of the friendliest I've encountered (outside of Disneyworld lol). We especially liked Diane, one of the waitresses at the café. I would definitely stay here again.
