“Great special event location and great in house restaurant Mahi Mah's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

We had a very succesful special training session during the weekend of Feb. 17-19,2012 during President's weekend at the Ramada on the Beach in Virginia Beach, Va.
The special ocenfront setting of the guest rooms, resturant and ballrooms are very conducive to helping us have a great turnout and effective meeting.
The particpants raved about the views from each guestroom which have a private balcony and what a special treat we had during our breakout lunch in Mahi Mah's and having a pod of whales in viewing distance entertain us. Luckly the ballrooms have ocen views as well and it was not hard to gather everyone up for the after lunch sessions.
The strength of this location is not only the views but everything is under one roof. Once our participants arrived on site and parked their vehicles there was no need to leave the premise all weekend. The award winning local's favorite restaurant on site, Mahi Mah's, had everything we needed from a buffett breakfast, a quick lunch located down the hall from our meeting rooms to a special dinner with a Sushi bar right on the beach.
The Hotel staff was very accomadating to our presentation needs transforming the room from a workshop setting to leaturer format between meals.
Having everthing under one roof that is not only of excellent quality and reputation, kept our participants on site. The amount of networking and continued discussion that happened during the weekend is something that I as an organizer could not have made happen without the special setting and the desire of the participants to stay together and not seek outside enetrtainment.
This is the 8th year I have used this location and working with familar faces over the years make me very comfortable in booking next years event. I know we will get we contracted for and if there is a problem with a guest room we will have it taken care before the working session is over. Our particpants look forward to this training session each year even though it happend during a weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront and have private balconies so you can not go wrong.

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, so was the breakfast staff. Our 5th floor room had a nice view of the beach and ocean.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms have an ocean view, but check. Higher floors may be quieter further away fr...

Weather was good so we decided to go to the beach for New Years. Stayed at Ramada and got a good deal, after some negotiating over the phone. Rooms were clean, everything worked as expected. Really good beakfast buffet, also to be negotiated, at Mahi Mahs restaurant which is part of the property. Fun location with some of the hottest bars at the beach. Good staff.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to "barter" during the off season. We got three free days of breakfast...

Stayed here for Valentines in 2011. Very nice hotel for the money. The beach was right out side the door. The lobby is real nice. We needed extra pillows and they brought them within minutes.

I live in Virginia Beach but decided a special night at the oceanfront hotel was worth the money. I reserved ( and had confirmed) a king non-smoking room. I checked in and walked into a smoking twin room. When I went back to the desk I was essentially told we are sold out and you booked through Expedia so you get whatever we have left. No offer of any effort to help make it work - air filter, fabreze, etc.

This was certainly my last use of this hotel and unless Expedia makes an attempt to make it right my last time using them.

On a side-note, mahi-mahs, their restaurant, did do an excellent job.

Room Tip: All oceanfront but ours was a very basic room. Fine if you plan to spend your time elsewhere but if...

We had an oceanfront room on the 7th Floor. Great sunrise, great views, great balcony. Fabulous room, clean, sizy. Bathroom could have been a bit bigger. Has pool and hottub. Friendly check-in staff (Olivia checked us in). Free wi-fi. Free valet. Location was good and nice and quiet. The other end in the 30's was all built up, high rise hotels, with cheezy tourist shops, etc. NOt as calm as our end. Mahi Mah's Restaurant is an elevator ride away. :)

Definitely value for the money for a 3 night Christmas stay. No crowds and definitely more bang for your buck. Some reviews on this hotel mentioned this place is old and/or "worn" - I did not agree. Also, for the deal you get pricewise in the off-season, we found it fine. For the record, I also saw no evidence of renovation.

Not to forget to mention the balcony view we got also of the infamous annual Christmas lights all along the 3miles of boardwalk. MAGICAL!

I would definitely stay again.

We just returned from a 3 nights stay. Off season rates were what attracted us. This hotel has been purchased by the developer doing all of the high end construction in VB and he/she is trying to instill some of that feel here, which is good. The staff is perfectly trained - respectfully, courteous, responsive, from the valet to the front desk to the maintenance man, everyone we encountered was either a long time service industry veteran and knews what's expected of them from a paying customer or Ramada's new owners had Gordon Ramsay teach a seminar on customer service. The staff made up for some of the short falls with the physical condition of the building. When our door wouldn't shut property, the maintenance man immediately arranged for us to move to a new room and took the broken room out of service. When we called down for extra blankets, they brought them up as soon as they could. The night staff even loaned us the microwave in their lounge to make popcorn because there is no guest microwave available. The onsite conceire found us discount tickets for the USS Wisconsin tour in Norfolk. Yes the building is old and some areas are worn, which they are trying to cover over or fix in a pieccemeal fashion (ex: new dual shower heads in old shower stalls) but the beds and pillows were confortable, the ocean is right outside your room, the linens and towels were clean and plentiful and the location was perfect for venturing out to some of the eateries and saloons. I would stay here again in the off season. When they finish updating/renovating, this place might be worth in season rates.
