“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Thanks to Trip Advisor for helping us find this excellent hotel.
The owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly, they made us feel right at home. What a good idea to rent chairs and umbrellas to their guests! They could give us directions to anything we wanted to find and made good restaurant recommendations.

The rooms were spacious, although the bathrooms were small, and very clean. The rooms all overlook the beach and ocean. We watched dolphins playing the first morning we were there and the morning we had to leave (a day after we had planned, we were having so much fun!).

I would highly recommend this to anyone going to Virginia Beach.

This is our 2nd time staying at the Belvedere and we just love it here! The owners and staff are warm and welcoming and you feel like part of the family by the end of your stay. I won't ever stay anywhere else and recommend it to anyone going to VB. All rooms are oceanfront, the diner's food and staff are awesome...BEST HOTEL IN VB!!

Just returned. Picked this hotel based on price and TA reviews. Good location, can walk to lots of places. Great breakfast downstairs. Is not anything fancy, but relatively clean. Not spotless. How much are you in your room on a beach vacation? Make your choice based on that. Pool was small but clean. No safe, no ironing board; but coffee pot and coffee provided. Would stay there again.

This is our second year in a row to have the honor to stay at here. No words can express how wonderful everyone is. The owners Dave &Leigh make you feel like family. You will just have to come and stay yourself then you to will be speachless. Will definitely be back next year. Thanks once again.

You can't ask for a better hotel staff. Friendly, attentive, nice, willing to help in any way. I chose this hotel also because it is family run. We stayed on the top floor with the most beautiful view of the ocean. We took advantage of the room service from the adjoining Belvedere diner, which did not charge extra for room service! Everyday we enjoyed our delicious breakfast from the comfort of our room, overlooking the ocean and a run of dolphins! Really enjoyed the "feeling of home" inside the room. The beds were so comfortable, even down to the pillows and I am hard to please when it comes to pillows. Very clean, excellent housekeeping service as well. Located in the "not as crowded" area of the oceanfront. The only thing I would like to see improve is an expansion of the bathroom. It got a little crowded with the three of us girls! Very good value compared to surrounding hotels in the same area.

1. The friendliest owners and staff we have ever met at any hotel!
2. While the hotel may be older and bathrooms smaller, this place is very clean and nicely decorated. (The rooms are a very nice size and all have an ocean view). Cleaning staff was friendly and cleaned well each day.
3. Beautiful part of the beach that isn’t so crowded and yet it is an easy walk to Neptune statue where the parties begin. If you prefer your room to be on the quiet side, this is great place. The first night, it was cool enough to open the door and there are screens!
4. A great coffee shop that even delivers to your room
5. Free use of bicycles and there are some boogie boards in the pool area to borrow.
6. OUTSIDE heated pool. I am not a fan of chlorinated air of indoor pools.
7. A variety of beverages and snacks are available in the lobby as well as beach chair and umbrella rental.
8. Free parking!!!
9. Close to good inexpensive places to eat like Peron’s Baja Grill and Taste Unlimited.
10. Oh yes, the beach! It is so nice to be on a part of the beach that isn’t so crowded. Not only that, don’t stand in line for the public showers after the beach, head to the swimming pool where the showers and foot wash are even better!
This family owners seem to enjoy their wonderful resort and want you to enjoy it too. I hope they will be able to continue for a long time because we intend to bring our family back again and again.

Room Tip: The outside hallways are very narrow, so if this concerns you, you might want to choose a lower room...

This is our second stay at the Belvedere and this stay was even better than our first. First of all, the desk staff here are some of the friendliest and most helpful I've encountered at a hotel. They really make you feel welcome. Our room was lovely with comfortable beds. Others have said the bathroom is small, but I think it was fine. It's great to sit on the balcony and look out at the beach. At night we turned off the a/c and left the sliding door open to listen to the surf.

The parking is tight, but we never had a problem finding a space. The pool is on the small side, but not many people use it, so it was comfortable for us....and really warm! Everything was very clean. There was always someone hosing off the pool area.

We loved the bikes they had available, for FREE. We used them everyday. And we ate at the coffee shop everyday. Great meals with great prices. Nothing fancy.

We wouldn't stay anyplace else in Virginia Beach. I'd considered the new Holiday Inn a few doors down, but I'm glad we didn't. It was large and loud and more expensive. They were constantly piping music outside.

My only warning about the VB area is that the military flights over the area have greatly increased since our last stay. It was especially noticeable in the evening, and it would go on until after 10pm. Loud.
