“Always a great place to stay!! We won't ever choose anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Just got back from our 3rd stay at the Belvedere!! One year we had chosen a littler bigger hotel (Surfside Inn) with a cont. breakfast, exercise room, etc. But we still missed the Belvedere! Friendly and helpful staff. Great value for all oceanfront rooms. Rooms are nicely sized. We always like 102...king bed, bottom floor. Microwave, fridge, tv, all great. Don't forget to eat at the coffee shop. One day we went for breakfast, another time, went for lunch, both was great, great service and reasonably priced which is always a welcome sight at the beach! Only problem we had was that our swimsuits and towels got stolen off our balcony because this room in particular has a private gate, but we'll know for next time not to be so trusting!! We know they were stolen because one towel and just the top of one of our swimsuits was left. But that is not the Belvedere's fault, just a warning!! Heated pool is nice and we also enjoy the complimentary use of the bikes.We know now that this is always a place of choice for our VA Beach vacations!! You can't go wrong!!

We had eaten lunch at the Belvedere's retro luncheonette many a time, but never stayed at the hotel before. The staff was incredibly welcoming and attentive, leading us to look at rooms when we popped in interested in possibly staying a night. The rooms were recently renovated in a quaint blue and white comfy motif; all rooms are oceanfront and I enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the ocean and boardwalk with a glass of wine in the evening. A relaxing room and warm hospitality make this hotel, as well as the view and great little adjacent diner. Complementary bikes are also available for pedalling the boardwalk.

Thrilled that you finally had the chance to stay in our hotel and had such a wonderfully relaxing stay. Few things are better than enjoying a glass of wine while looking out over the ocean—such a treat. Think you'll be back soon? We hope so! Thanks so much for the five-star review and enjoy the rest of your summer.

We stayed here for two nights in the middle of June. The staff was very pleasant. the room was very nice, recently redecorated, pretty pastel beach décor. But the big window facing the beach with the patio was delightful. There is a restaurant attached, which is probably why there is no in-room coffee. They had umbrellas and chairs for rent which we did, and I believe the bikes were free, which we didn't utilize. Really this hotel was just what we were looking for. Will go back the next time we're in Virginia Beach.

Room Tip: We liked the ground floor

i am a former resident of VB but when i visit this is where i usually stay. Dont judge by exterior appreance. I discovered this place from staying next door at the Sheraton.
Rooms are very nice and all of them face the ocean and beach. Flat screen and free wi fi, salt water taffee and nice soft colors of pink and sky blue are characteristics of the rooms. Very beachy and relaxing. Nice breakfast place adjoining hotel and get there first thing cause the whole of Va Beach ,tourists, residents and all descend on this place which is very popular...need i say more...so don your flip flops park your car and be a beach bum here.

Spent a night here on Fathers Day weekend. You would think if you paid 200.00 a night for a room you would at least have a coffee maker in the room or offer some kind of breakfast. Needs improvement. Plus there was not a freezer in the Fridge. And said on the Sign outside that you took AAA for a discount. Well Guess what NOT!!

Hi Susan,

We were concerned to read your review, and are sorry if you didn't enjoy your stay over Fathers Day weekend. For clarification, we do have coffee makers available on request and, while not included with the room, we do offer breakfast in our coffee shop/diner. It's a favorite among our guests, and I'm sorry if this wasn't more apparent. We'll make sure to let all our new guests know about it in the future!

Your satisfaction is our main concern, and we were wondering, what else could we do better? Any feedback is much appreciated.

We hope to hear back from you! Thanks for sharing and take care.

Best regards,

David and Leigh W., Owners

First off, this place is family owned and they are extremely friendly people. They aimed to please. They were constantly trying to give us the best experience possible. They even told us we could continue to stay and use their amenties after we checked out, They were all very sweet to my toddler as well. The coffee shop was great. The rooms have been recently renovated with flat screen tvs mounted on the wall, new carpet, and nice bedding. I love the walls. They are like beachy wood panels. It really feels like a BEACH hotel...not the cookie cutter chain hotel. From the outside, you may not expect much but you quickly learn its a great hotel. Great location. Within walking distance of foods, shops, and the neptune statue. We'll be back.

Seriously, this place inside and out feels like every black and white photo I saw of my grandparents on vacation. I'm glad my wife wasn't with us because she would have taken one look at the outside and said no. Her criteria for hotel ends at the age. I loved everything about this place. It's like staying in a vacation museum. It is old, but it is clean and very well kept. The carpet felt new. The pool was in great shape, warm, clean, and we were by ourselves. The guys at the desk are very nice. The location is excellent. Everything cool along the boardwalk is within a half mile. I also enjoyed seeing all the F-18's coming in from a carrier. It has an old time coffee shop attached to the motel. Plan to try that out tommorrow. The beach and boardwalk are really nice and the view is great.

We only stayed a day but I could see coming back here for an extended trip.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor. Nice view.

Pretty cool to hear our hotel made you feel like Don Draper, Scott! Like you said, there's definitely a lot of charm in an older hotel. What'd you think of the coffee shop, by the way?

We're always thrilled to hear that a guest has enjoyed their stay, and appreciate you sharing this with others. Thanks so much for the stars and come back soon!
