“Beach front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Great hotel, clean, friendly and AC works.

Beds comfortable enough. Breakfast buffet is mediocre, but their coffee is great!! View of ocean from breakfast area, very nice.

Room Tip: They don't have a restaurant, and restaurants around the hotel not very good. Great restaurant...

The overall hotel and service were great ... What stood out to us the most was the front desk clerk, tricia. She was very accommodating and went out of her way to meet our requst... Which included an earl checking and adjoining rooms, since we were traveling with small children. Large selection for free breakfast... Make sure you dont pay extra for breakfast as it is complimentary.

All of the rooms were oceanfront and with balcony, the view is very beautiful and relaxing. The hotel is located on the center of the activities for everyone to enjoy. The staff is very accomodating and very helpful like to commend Bee and Shailanna. The food is OK but the service is very good, breakfast staff well very attentive and quick in turning tables for guest. They were so busy when my family stayed at the hotel. Parking lot is always full but managed to find a spot. Very safe environment and my kids enjoyed the stay.

The free breakfast is perfect for a beach vacation with little ones where you will be eating out all the time. The hotel was nice and the staff very helpful. There is a small indoor pool and an outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand. All the rooms are oceanfront. The parking is nasty but they do have three lots. It is just the one by the hotel door is always packed. So if you can't find a spot there you will have to cross 2 streets. It's not bad but with a 2 year old it's not that convenient either. We would absolutely stay there again if we return to VA Beach.

On our initial arrival there was absolutely no parking in the small lot in front. So my boyfriend and I began to wonder what was up with that. I checked in to get the down low on the parking and I couldn't believe my ears. We had to go an entire street over to a parking lot for Holiday Inn express. We were concerned about theft considering the parking lot didn't have the best lighting, but we kept trekking on and decided to take on the "roll with the punches" mentality. Oh yes, and take any and all valuables with us :)

Once we got inside our room it was all worth it, the oceanfront room on the seventh floor was lovely and the room was very clean. My boyfriend was the first to use the shower and he gave me his trip advisor input, so here goes. The shower was a little slippery or gooey in the floor pan area at first use (not sure what that was >_<), the towels were a bit thin and scratchy, the shower head needed and bit more pressure, and the toilet that had a push button flush needs a bit of a warm up so to speak (you might give it a flush at first and it just kind of moves the water but doesn't flush), try it about a minute later and it flushes perfectly (this could be different room to room, not sure). I am a bit of a clean freak and checked for evidence of bed bugs, which there were no signs of.

Now onto breakfast, this was one of the best free breakfasts I have ever had. the selection was remarkable, something for everyone. I was use to the run-of-the-mill rubbery cheesy eggs at other free breakfasts but not here. There were two refrigerators with yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and milk (1%, 2%, and even chocolate). There was an assortment (like 4) of different cereals. The first day they had biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and sausage. There were bagels muffins and bread for toast. Of course they had juice and coffee. Next days breakfast was sans gravy, but did have biscuits and instead of sausage there was bacon. Lastly, they also have these wonderful cinnamon rolls sitting in warmers so they don't get hard and disgusting, instead they are warm, gooey, and sugary. ****NOW FOR THE pièce de résistance (this is a must read), they have a pancake maker unlike the messy waffle makers at any other hotel. You simply push a button and a perfect pancake slides out the other end in maybe a minute? It phenomenal and you can make as many as you want.

The breakfast and lobby/check-in area are all connected and look right out onto the ocean, it is quite lovely. Which brings me to my next point, after a grueling hot day on the beach (the heat index was 107), it was sweltering, and having your hotel a 50 ft. walk away was awesome...loved loved loved this!

This hotel was amazing, I forgot about the parking situation once we were immersed in the hotel, the amazing breakfast, and once my eyes feasted on the ocean view from our room all my cares fell away. Also, every room is ocean front so not to worry about possibly facing the road.

The only last negative I can think of has nothing to do with the hotel. Breakfast gets crowded, there is a line and people are rude, so just get ready for that and you should be good. There is enough food for everyone people, chill out!

The only reason this hotel didn't get 5 stars is, when we checked in the room it didn't have soap, tissues, shampoo/conditioner or lotion. The mirrors were also not wiped off. It was July 4th weekend, so I think they were rushing to finsh cleaning the room. When we called to get the soap and stuff we had to go down and get it. We have a 1 month old, so running downstairs isn't just running downstairs. great hotel other than that. Hotel had a great breakfast staff that kept everything stocked and were so polite.

One word sums up the parking at this hotel..NIGHTMARE! We had to ride around for about an hour to find a place to park in the spare lots that they own that are a nice distance from the hotel. The main parking lot in front of the hotel fills quickly. Secondly, the A/C in the rooms is horrible. We purchased a total of 3 rooms because it was 10 of us and each room was warm on both days even with the A/C on the lowest possible setting. I think the units need servicing or replacement because the airflow isnt very strong at all. We had to buy fans from Walmart. It took us forever to get clean linen. Our linen was picked up that morning, we didnt get clean linen until 7:30 pm which was ridiculous. They only have an indoor pool and it is very small and dirty looking. If you are going to VA Beach, I suggest you look elsewhere for the amount of money you are going to spend on a room here. You will not enjoy this hotel, I can guarantee that. We will not be staying here again which is upsetting because past Holiday Inn Express chains have been fantastic an very enjoyable. NOT THIS ONE!
