What a pity that in such a central location, there is little pleasure to be had from staying at this hotel. The receptionist was cold and unsmiling, with not a hint of welcome. The room had a decent bed, but with only a sheet and cover. There were two polyester blankets on a shelf and I had to unzip them and put both on the bed to get reasonably warm in the cold and windy May weather. The room heater/cooler is a metal box attached to the wall right next to one of the beds. Every time the thermostat turns it on or off the noise is enough to jolt you awake. I ended up wearing foam earplugs. There is no breakfast available in the hotel, and no microwaves in the rooms. Although arriving by car is pretty much the only option, parking is charged at $7 plus tax a night. After leaving here, I checked in at a hotel of similar standard and vintage at my next destination, Ocean City, and the contrast was striking: a super friendly receptionist, a full comforter on the bed, a restaurant with breakfast for purchase and free parking. There are dozens of other options along Virginia Beach: choose one of them instead of this place.

Recently stayed here, had 2 rooms. Clean, great view, nice staff. Nice indoor pool, Wish that there was a continental breakfast offered or microwave in rooms. Would have liked to have stayed longer. Will hopefully go again.

The front desk staff were very nice, the location is good, the price is good when compared to other hotels nearby, but there were roaches in the room. We had stayed here a few years ago and saw a few then so asked before making reservations if they had taken care of the roach problem and we were told they had. There was plenty of time during covid to do something about them but we still saw quite a few. I will not be staying here again. There is also no maid service. You can call and request more towels, trash bags, etc and they come quickly but there is no maid service.

I saw a couple ho-hum reviews and don't agree with them. We've used this hotel on numerous occasions, I'm typing this review on the last evening of our most recent stay, as a matter of fact. We were greated, as always, by friendly staff, in our room in a short time and have had a good stay. Any time we have found an issue here, we've notified the desk and they have promply handled the matter. I figured out how to turn on the fridge without any problems and if I'd been missing a microwave, I'd have aske for one--if I even needed it. I would call it a bit better than average, thus a rating of 4. The've reduced a few of the services a bit and cut the pool hours back a little, but it's still a reasonably priced quality place to stay.

My daughter and I took a mini vacation. We wanted an inexpensive hotel with a oceanfront view. After searching we found The Oceanfront Inn, great price, ocean view and a great staff. Thank you Clinton.

The front desk staff was very pleasant and accommodating. There was a $7.50 per day charge for parking, which I was not happy about. The parking lot out front was suitable for large cars/trucks. The elevators were musty smelling and slow. The hallways could use some freshening. The rooms are adequate in size for a basic "hotel room". No microwave. The beds are hard and high off of the floor. The curtain at the balcony window had burn and soil marks. There were also soiled marks on the walls and on the floors. The furniture looked worn and marked up. The bathrooms were so small you could barely turn around. The shower and tub did not seem very clean. There was hair (not ours) on the "clean" towels. No daily maid service due to Covid. The balcony floor was filthy; soiled and nasty. The balcony chairs were also dirty. There was a dead roach on the floor when I got up on our last morning there...so disgusting. There are vagrants that hang out in groups on the side of the building, making it feel very unsafe and unwelcoming. Was very disappointed in our stay here this time compared to our stay here a few years ago. The restaurant at the back of the hotel was closed.

This hotel was very clean and staff was really friendly. The location is awesome! The room doesn’t have a microwave.The fridge was turned off before we got there. We had to ask for a blanket at the front desk because there wasn’t one in the room. The hotel was very cold inside and it smelled like marijuana in the halls.

Clinton at the front desk was my man. He made everything at the trip very enjoyable. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, it was always nice to see him greet us and give us a warm welcome. Will definitely go back again if he’s still there

Our room was ready by 2:30 pm our room was really nice and clean kudos for all cleaning people who keep this hotel up and going parking places in front of hotel was small but parking garage across the street for hotel was ok there is no free breakfast but they have a restaurant. It’s better to walk to find something to eat because you have to pay to park almost everywhere didn’t like that . We will be back

Pros: Easy check in and were able to get us checked in before 11 am. Cons: No daily room cleaning due to “Covid.” Floor wasn’t fully clean prior to arrival. Next door clientele were loud and in an argument in the middle of the night and nobody at front desk to answer phone and address the issue.
