For the last night of our road trip we booked at the Holiday Inn Express right on Atlantic Ave on the ocean at Virginia Beach. While the hotel may not have a fancy restaurant, and the indoor pool was quite small, for the money it was a very good hotel. Clean, courteous staff, let us check in early, ocean front location- all rooms have balconies that overlook the boardwalk, you really can't go wrong, and I love how the HIE wrap their blankets in sheet covers and use top quality bedding and pillows! . We will be leaving early, so can't report on the breakfast, as it starts at 6:30 am, which frankly if we didn't have a 12 drive would be plenty early enough!
