The hotel itself is located in a beautiful area, beach front with a nice, clean pool. The room decor was a little out dated, but I did find that the bathroom was clean and tidy as well as the bed. We stayed in a Jr King Suite which has 2 rooms. The sofa pull out bed was missing springs and... More

The location was convenient to our travel needs (a one-night stay) and it was right on the bay beach side so the view was beautiful. We could see the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from our private little deck, big enough for 2 plastic chairs. The room was typically small - 2 queen beds even though I wanted a king, but... More

She had a great personality as we asked the same question about where breakfast and the beach access was, she was still very pleasant with a smile. our... More

I was expecting to stay in a hotel suite but was in a old motel room that had a long flite of stairs to carry you luggage up to. the parking for handicap was one space right next to lobby. The breakfast area was too small for the amount of guests.

This hotel had such great reviews and came highly reccomended by a new friend, so we couldn't wait to check in and start our vacation! We expected clean rooms with an awesome view of the beach, helpful/friendly employees, and the best complimentary breakfast ever! With all of that for a much lower price, who needs to vacation on VA Beach... More

I have stayed at many hotels and other Best Western locations. This hotel was located in a remote area in an undesirable neighborhood. The hotel website description is misleading as far as the number of rooms which have balconies and ocean views. This facility has two sides: one of which looks like a 2-story motel and another in a mid-rise... More

The room we stayed in was very damp. The smell of mold and mildew hit us as soon as we walked in the door. I am allergic to mold and was immediately affected by the poor air quality of the room. I had to take my inhaler and allergy medicine to get through the night. When we woke up the... More

My family went here for the second time but this time we got 118. It seemed like the last room we got there but this time its by the pool. We opened the doors and we realized the worst. It smelled moldy and was very moist😉. My mom also had an asthma attack because the moldy smell was too much.... More
