4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Remodeling was a definite positive. Lobby and rooms are very nice. Door locks were very sensitive and difficult. Always had to swipe multiple times to get in. I noticed other guests with same problem. Indoor pool was nice but not very warm. Breakfast was very good and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice location. Great meeting rooms ocean front. Will stay again. Exercise room was small but had nice machines. Walking distance to many things. Great winter value.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with family

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel these past 2 years with our navy reunion. The upgrades that have been completed in that time has really made this hotel the best spot in Va Beach. What has not been changed in the last 2 years is the service. It has been outstanding, and has helped our military reunion in every single way. The sales mgr, pauline, the front desk staff, the hotel staff, have all been more than helpful. the price is outstanding, and with the updates, and location, you will not find a better deal.

Nicely done renovation, comfortable, great views, comfy bed, excellent breakfast, great front desk welcome by Charles. Fitness room, great pool (maybe a hot tub in the future ?) Friendly and accommodating staff. Highly recommended. This is definitely our new Valentines spot.

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views and no one overhead. Although in an older solidly building like this...

Have stayed there twice before. This time I was nicely surprised about all the changes. Was there again for a scrapbooking weekend. The rooms are very comfortable & new decor is great, there is a microwave, fridge & a bigger flatscreen TV. The complete breakfast buffet is a great improvement of the old continnental breakfast & the one that you also see at other hotels. The entire hotel has been refurbished. Desk staff helpful & courteous. All rooms are oceanfront. Great value for the money.

This hotel was great. It appears that the owners put a large amount of money and time into updating the building and rooms. Staying here in the off season was 1/3 of the price. The pool was great, nice large pool that has a 6 foot end. There is also a great kiddie pool. The bad news is there was not a hot tub. The restaurant was good, would like to see some modernization done there but very friendly and helpful staff. The food was a real bargain including the breakfast buffet. The best free Best Western breakfast I have had. The room was perfect, I would not be one to pay 3 times as much in the summer and that is not because of this hotel but I do not see the value in it for me. It appears that the area is a great time for the 20's crowd but I am too late for that. Overall I would recommend this hotel! Especially in the off season!

Room Tip: Stay in the off season if you want a place to relax.
