“Good value,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

An average hotel but clean and comfortable, location is fine, breakfast was reasonable, indoor pool was great at this time of year. I'd say good value for money for a 1 night stay, if your staying longer you may want to shop around

I stayed at the Oceanfront Inn with 2 granddaughters (ages 23 and 11) for 3 nights over Thanksgiving. We had a great time. The price was right and I like the location. The room when we arrived was so clean. It had a refrigerator and a coffee maker. It did not have a microwave, which would have been a nice added feature. The beds were so comfortable and the pillows were the best. It was also very quiet. The indoor pool was very clean and the water warm. Due to the season they had the holiday lights on the boardwalk which were spectacular. I've stayed there many times in the past but have not been there for at least four years. They have made many changes like wallpaper, new mattresses, new furniture in the rooms. They also have new lobby furniture. There is a restaurant on the premises but we did not eat there. We can't wait to go back soon we hope. The staff was so nice especially Bobbie. She was so helpful and friendly all the time.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront with your own balcony and 2 chairs. We were on the 5th floor so we had a g...

My fiance and I stayed here for the weekend and felt this was a nice place to stay. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The door to the oceanfront balcony looked like it has been recently redone and was nice. The lobby was nicely furnished and there were 3 elevators, one was glass so could you see outside as you went up or down, very cool!

My only complaint about the stay was the shower, the water would go from warm to scalding hot to ice cold randomly during the shower so you frequently had to jump out of the way of the water.I tried setting it at different temperatures but this happened no matter what.

All in all I thought it was a nice hotel and would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for 3 nights the last week of October. The room was clean, the balcony and view were great. Although it's an older hotel, the room is up-to-date with the exception of the bathroom floor. The older tile is dated and almost gives it the look of a dirty bathroom, but its not, it's clean, The water pressure on shower was fantastic! Bed was comfy. For the amount of money charged for an oceanfront room with balcony...you cannot do any better!

Housekeeping was ok. I did find that instead of giving me a new bathmat for the floor, they picked up and folded the one I had already used because it was still wet when I went to take a shower that night. If you want a fresh bathmat every day, make sure you put the used one in the pile of used towels.

I usually don't need the front desk help but I did call on them a couple of times during my stay. Recommendation for place for dinner/drinks (Murphy's Irish Pub was EXCELLENT), permission for a visiting friend to park in the lot, etc. Everyone I dealt with was professional and helpful. I couldn't ask for anything better.

I would absolutely recommend staying here. You can't beat the price!

After moving to this motel after 2 days of staying in one we were not happy with, this was a big improvement. The rooms are all oceanfront with a great view. They are clean and the staff was very nice. Even though Hurricane Sandy was moving in, we still had a great time. Compared to where we stayed the first 2 days, it was also a great value!

The Oceanfront Inn provided two of the things we most look for when we are traveling to Virginia Beach. A view of the ocean and an indoor pool. All of the rooms in the Oceanfront face the ocean. There is nothing like opening your door to the balcony and leaving it open for your entire stay. The cool breeze and the sound of the surf make it easy to sleep. The hotel itself is a little outdated but it is clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only slight problem we had was when we decided to eat at the Neptune Restaurant which was located in the hotel. They had a seafood buffet, which meant none of the regular menu was available. The staff did apologize for that but considering it was not their fault, it was much appreciated. This will be one of the places considered for the next trip to VA Beach.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the ocean so there really is not a bad room to have. IF you are a frequent visito...

the hotel stay as great the room was clean and comfortable. The room was also sound proof we didn't hear any other guest and that was great. the oceanfront was very enjoyable. Adam at the front desk was really great we got the best customer service from him. The other people at the front desk we not so friendly. The hotel can use some new beds the mattresses seemed to be old and not so comfortable.
