“very good stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

hadn't been to virginia beach in a while although this was our favorite place to go when our boys were young. we decided to make a weekend visit with some friends recently. Gorgeous weather! Hotel great location on oceanfront. Hotel was clean, staff was courteous and helpful (cables and remote for dvd player were missing from our room and this was promptly replaced when reported) other guests very nice and pleasant. Buffet breakfast, one of the best we had. Again staff in buffet area very pleasant. They seemed to enjoy what they do. Had to use our keycard to actually get on each floor but none for the stairs.Stayed on 5th floor which was great. Would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: premium oceanfront rooms from 5th floor up better for noise control from band

We had an ocean view room with a small balcony. This was great as the sea view was wonderful from the 5th floor. We stayed 2 nights as it was quite expensive at $279 dollars plus tax per night. Check in was quick and un-eventful. The hotel was full with people milling around everywhere. At breakfast the staff were magnificent at keeping up with replenishing the food and coffee and wiping tables. Not an easy job!
I had need to call at reception three times during the 2 days and each time it was un-manned with my having to wait 5-10 minutes for someone to come. In the evening reception appeared to be run by young inexperienced staff who were not very personable. The corridors were not kept very clean but this may be due to the high volume of people coming and going, some leaving sand from the beach in the elevators and landings.
We had an A/C failure in the bedroom. The response was immediate but as it was evening the staff member did not have the spares to deal with it. Fortunately it was not a hot night so we were OK. This is obviously a hard hotel to keep on top of and it really needs more mature staff as a lot of youngsters were not experienced enough to give good customer service. Fortunately this did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay.

Great location, terrible view of birds fighting for food and defecating on restaurant roof. I wouldn't go back to this place if they paid me. Staff was nice, but seemed overwhelmed. The breakfast was a mob scene that provided a rather spartan fare. Too bad, because the location and prices should dictate a much better experience.

Not very happy with this hotel! The staff should be more polite and at least trying to help, or pretend they care when a guest expectations were not meet. We understood there were no more roll on beds available but guess what? Room was so small we could not use the mattress we brought. When I asked the receptionist is this is indeed the room we asked for, he said yes and didn't even try to offer us another alternative. One of us had to sleep on the balcony on the chair! Housekeeping was nonexistent! We could only take this for 2 days!

Stayed 4 nights in August. Check in was fast, staff very pleasant, housekkeping took good care of us during our stay. Parking garage was tight but we found a space every time. No security key system to get in from the garage was needed, anyone can just open the door and they are in. Room was nice, beds comfy, AC was loud but worked well, balcony was nice to sit out on but the cigarette smoke from other guests was a problem and the wind blew the smell right into our room. Shower water pressure was fine, bathroom size was adequate. Noticed some peeling wallcovering and loose tiles in bathroom. We had problems with the wifi, could not always connect and if I stepped out on the balcony I lost it. Free coffee and tea offered to guests all day, we thought that was great and much appreciated. Free breakfast buffet from 6-10am every day. Food was not the best, the eggs were not good at all. Bagels, cereal, yogurt, and make your own waffles were what we stuck with and always started our day full. Best thing about this hotel is the ocean and boardwalk and of course, the beautiful views and beach access. We had many choices of places to stay and this was rated highly on Trip Advisor, the price was comparable to other hotels and we were able to use AARP discount.

This is a great hotel! Upon arrival, the front desk helped us in every way we needed, with directions and other stuff. The Beds are comfortable, rooms are nice and spacious and each balcony comes with a table and two chairs. The staff always ways hello. Everybody is very welcoming. Loved my stay!

Room Tip: Go for the high floors!
