“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We spent 4 nights during memorial day weekend. The staff were very nice. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hallways are a little rundown looking. The view of the ocean was beautiful. The hotel is located away from the center of the boardwalk so it was relatively quiet.

Room Tip: Ask not to be put near the pool unless you have children.

During our stay at Oceanfront Inn and Suites, the staff proved to be very helpful in making our vacation comfortable. There was a group of us (family and friends), who had rented a suite and 3 other rooms and wanted to be on the same floor. The hotel staff made it possible for all of us to have rooms on the same floor. During our stay, the A/C unit broke in our suite. The management and maintenance went above and beyond to get the unit fixed and they generously adjusted our nightly cost, due to the inconvenience. If you want a nice oceanfront suite, super friendly staff and free continental breakfast , you might want to choose to stay here. Otherwise, you can choose to stay at one of the higher, upper class hotels who charge a weeks salary (for the average person), for a one night stay. Surfside Oceanfront Inn and Suites has proven to be a nice, affordable place to stay. All staff (front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, and management), were great!

I recently spent one night at the Surfside. My friends were booked at a much more expensive hotel nearby, but when I was able to see the rooms, their expensive one was not any nicer than mine at the Surfside. Check-in was great, even fun, the people working there were very good and helpful. My room was clean, modern and had a good view of the ocean. I will definitely keep this hotel in mind for next time we are in Virginia Beach.

The hotel and the rooms are dirty. I had to call to request my room be cleaned as no one had come to do so for two days. When it was finally cleaned, the overflowing trash was left behind.
On my last morning, the cleaning person entered the room which had do not disturb signon the door without knocking.

When i checked in, I combined a 1 night stay reservation with previous reservation of 3 night stay for same room. I was called on the first morning to ask why I hadnt checked out. My day was disturbed as I had to wait for new key and parking pass to be delivered.

The "fitness center" consisted of 5 pieces of equipment, three of which were broken. This enclosed room had no AC. AC and toilet in my room fuinctioned sporadically.

There are so many choices in Virginia Beach. In fact, there are more reasonable choices that are far superior.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

We decided at the last minute to take a trip to VA Beach. A family friend recommended Surfside Oceanfront Inn. I am glad I made the reservation. Devin and Erin are fantastic. They will make sure that everything you need is taken care of. They have private covered parking that IS monitored. Surfside Inn also has their own access to the beach and great proximity to the pier. We stayed on the 7th floor with ocean view. It was great to sleep with the patio door open and listen to waves. Police patrols constantly and there are plenty of lifeguards on that end of the beach.

Arrived for a 7 night stay at end of holiday, wish we had just stayed the night. Although all rooms are beachfront and overlook the ocean the noise from the resort , and some of the guests, ruined the stay. Think of Blackpool with sun and you get the picture.

What added to the noise was the daily (8am until 10pm) fly past of F1 11 jets from the nearby military base (upto 40 flew over one day !!). The noise was terrible and I now know what it must be like living in a war zone.

Although I would not stay in the hotel or resort again I would like to mention the reception staff and cleaners for thier advice and hard work, also good breakfast room with great service.

This was my second time staying at this hotel. View is great. Free Breakfast, Staff is very nice. Hotel is very convenient. Right on the beach, by the board walk. Pool was very nice and alot of fun. Restaurants are only a 2 minute drive away. Hotel was very busy due to tournaments but service was always there and on time. Rooms are a decent size. Bathrooms are small, sinks are outside the bathroom. Overall great price for the summer time, stayed for 4 nights with my friends.

Room Tip: Bring lots of towels... we had alot of shortages of towels.

Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel! We are extremely lucky to be placed in the heart of the oceanfront with enough attractions and restaurants nearby to make your stay memorable for all members of the family. The Sand Soccer tournament always attracts a large crowd, and we pride ourselves on being prepared for such busy weekends. Thank you for making Surfside your home away from home and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Virginia Beach.
