Good place to stay for the price. The ocean views are spectacular. The hotel is a little older and could use some updates but they do a good job of maintaining. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the typical continental breakfast that was offered. Free parking! The only real negative thing I have to say is that... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The ocean view rooms really have a spectacular view. The rooms are a little worse for the wear, but it's to be expected having all that salt water and humidity. The staff was very friendly and we were pleased with our choice to stay here. Not the fanciest part of town, but not bad... More

The moment we walk into a room, we always check the beds. Well upon checking, we found 6 strains of hair on the sheets. We had gotten a room with 2 queen beds so we were able to sleep in that one, of course we checked that bed too. The linen rack was falling off the wall too. When we... More

This is the 4th stay for me, this time for 3 nights. I visit family and it's near their house. There are no other options in this immediate area that are as nice or as clean. Every time I stay here, it is better. The rooms are clean first and foremost. The rooms are quiet seemingly from solid construction. The... More

hair on toilet from previous occupant. Dust in the vents of the airconditioner. hair in the ice bucket from previous occupant. I feel the cleaning staff is not taught the importance of their job involving hygiene and infection control... Breakfast selection was poor - all sugar filled processed cereals, oatmeals, muffins, etc. The bed was extremely uncomfortable! My back is... More

I attend the Airshow at NAS Oceana every year. Those F-18 Hornets are truly the sound of Freedom. The Holiday Sands allows you to be a part of the hustle and bustle of the Virginia Beach area but it's location on Chesapeake Bay allows you a chance to slow down. You can follow the sunset as it set's over a... More

Although this was only a one night stay, we were so pleased with the hotel and the staff. The room was great, overlooking the water. Beautiful surroundings, access to the beach. we didn't use the pool but it was spotless. The staff was more than helpful, with directions for the rest of our trip. We would, without a question, stay... More

My friend and I went in all directions from this hotel to find neat things to do. I continue to return to the Norfolk area just because there's so much there to see and do. This hotel was a very nice part of our last visit; we had very inexpensive rooms, so not much to write home about, but the... More
