Beautiful views. All the people we dealt with were wonderful.The suite is setup great and if they know when you are coming in, you can have them shop for you.Full breakfast every morning and you can take it to your room. We will definitely go back.

A very good place to stay. All the rooms have oceanfront views which can't be beat. It's further north on Virginia Beach and most often there is no noise from people partying outside. We've never been disappointed with a room we've had, which is saying something for sure. It is a bit on the pricey side, but you might find it's well worth it. Rooms are well kept and nicely appointed, The service in the hotel is very good on all levels in our experience. The staff are most often very friendly and willing to be helpful with some rare exceptions (but hey everyone has a bad day now and then). There are lots of amenities there from a small cafe, a simple breakfast buffet and a couple of pools one indoor and outdoor. It's very convenient if you just want to hang around the hotel for the day, with a great space of pretty quiet beach right out front.

We stayed at this hotel with our four kids last week. We travel a lot, so have a good sense of different hotels. I would have to say that this was one of the hotels where the reviews were a bit misleading for me.

The Good:
-Great location - Right on the beach and centrally located to restaurants in the area
- Nice sized rooms
- Great workout facility
- Nice service - very responsive staff and they have a great service where they will shop for your groceries for you if you give them a list and then stock your refrigerator. This was an extra perk and the service was completely free of charge.
- Great that there was a kitchen in the room. It was nicely stocked with dishes, pots, etc.


The not so good:
- The balcony is unusable. The balcony at the hotel is really small and when you have the air conditioner on, it blows stinky hot air at you. I would have really liked to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the morning, but that was not possible.
- The beds were really uncomfortable.
- The rooms were never really thoroughly cleaned. There was always a thin layer of dust on the televisions and drawers even after the cleaning person left.
- The breakfast was really limited. The warm foods were not very appetizing, so we would just eat the English muffins and waffles.

Overall, I think this hotel was good enough, but for the price, I would probably stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: I think the rooms on the 2nd floor have huge balconies. Maybe try getting one of those rooms.

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you feel that the hotel was average compared to others. I enjoyed reading your good comments as well as your bad comments because no matter the comment it always helps us improve. I apologize that you were not able to sit on your balcony because the vent blows on the balcony. This is something we realize is a design flaw. Since this is not something we can change, we simply ask guests to turn off the air conditioning system in the room so that they may enjoy the view without the air blowing. I apologize for the inconvenience. We hope you stay with us the next time you visit Virginia Beach. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Location, location, location...as well as a kind, gracious and helpful front desk staff made our vacation on Virginia Beach absolutely wonderful. Mykeya was a constant presence throughout our stay. Her warm smile welcomed us each time we walked through the door. Patrick was extremely helpful. We loved everything from the quiet location on the beach, nearby beach rentals, as well as pizza and ice cream right across the street. A large grocery store is within a few blocks, making it easy to stock the handy refrigerator in our room. We will definitely be back for another stay!

A bit of a mixed bag for me here. The hotel is of course nicely situated on the beach and every room has a lovely view of the ocean. We really enjoyed waking up every morning and watching the dolphins playing in the water! I would suggest bringing some binoculars to get a better view of them. The room itself was fairly typical of a Residence Inn with a kitchen area, living area, bedroom and bathroom. We were fortunate to have a LARGE patio off of our room, but most rooms will simply have a balcony. The room was in average shape but looks like it could be due for some upgrading soon. The bed wasn't overly comfortable for us, but we are used to a sleep by number bed. The complimentary WiFi worked relatively well and I liked the fitness center and indoor pool/hot tub.

What I didn't like about this hotel was the complimentary buffet breakfast and the parking. The buffet was just of poor quality. The fruit tasted like it had some sort of preservative on it and the eggs tasted like powder eggs. We ate here once and that was enough for us. Parking was simply a nightmare. The lot is very small and holds maybe 20 cars or so. Good luck getting a spot, even a handicap one, which we were after. You will basically have to park elsewhere or do valet.

Next time I'm in the area, I will likely check out some of the other hotels before returning here.

I visited Residence Inn Hotel in Virginia in March 2014. The hotel is located in a very suitable place where everything is in ten-minutes' walk. The room was cozy and nice. The staff was warm and welcoming.
