We came down for New Years and the Boardwalk Lights and had another perfect stay. As everyone says, the location is perfect. There have also been upgrades to the hall carpet and much more. The staff is always very nice and very friendly. Looking forward to our next trip in the summer already!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Oceanfront Inn and were leery about returning after some serious issues during a stay in 2012. I'm glad we gave it a second chance! Our room was clean, the view is awesome (as you can see from the pics taken from our room) and the Fall Value Getaway package was...

Thank you for your review of The Oceanfront Inn, and for giving us a second chance! We're so happy that you had a wonderful stay! We think the fall is so great in Virginia Beach too!

The rate and location couldn't be beat! We liked watching the cars drive by looking at the Christmas lights. It was warm enough to sleep with the balcony door open one night to listen to the ocean. All of the staff from front desk to housekeeping were very professional and polite. The cons would be the walls are thin and...

Thank you Brandy for your review of The Oceanfront Inn ! We're working on getting microwaves in each room, or at least on each floor as a common area.

I booked my room on Hotels.com for a very good rate. However, when I got there I was asked what I did. My profession qualified me for an additional discount, which was not at all expected, but very appreciated. The hotel was obviously older, and the rooms had some wear and tear, but all in all the hotel was quiet,...

Very decent and comfortable, great off-season rate. The room was clean and tidy and had a flat screen TV, free wifi, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Room towels were fluffy and soft.

Hi, I really enjoyed my stay at The Oceanfront Inn. I visit family in Virginia Beach a few times a year. It was the first time I stayed at your hotel and I plan to stay there in the future. There was a minor mix up upon check in - was given a room with a King size bed (at...

excellent, pool was covered and Clinton was going to uncover it, even though I was the only one who wanted to use the pool. The staff was very friendly and I was very impressed, would recommend highly, rooms are also nice, ocean front.

This certainly isn't a bad hotel. But I can't say I was particularly impressed either. PRO: Location -- right smack on the beach near the Poseidon statue, the location is wonderful. Staff -- the Front Desk staff was friendly, pleasant and accommodating. Balcony -- every room has a balcony facing the ocean. While narrow, the balcony is spacious enough for...
