With a title like Howard Johnson Virginia Beach at the beach you would think it was right on the beach....not...it was across the street from the beach. Not much of a breakfast offered. Rooms were nice size and ok but nothing great. Elevator was a little scary. Was charged a resort fee and did not feel like a resort! The... More

We thought our rooms were very beautiful and very clean! The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was quiet and perfect for families to enjoy. I had really wanted a beachfront room, but it turns out that being right across the street was perfection! The kids are telling me to share that the TV's are awesome, and we adults... More

This was essentially a motel with hotel prices. No lobby, no breakfast and not much of a room. The place smelled of smoke, despite the warning that there would be a fine of $250 for anyone who smoked in the room. Upstairs (we were on the fifth floor) must have had a bowling alley which was open all night. Location... More

The hotel is very close to the beach and it is close to Watermans. However, you get what you pay for- amenities are limited. Rooms we were in were not as clean as they could be despite the price. The breakfast is the worse I have seen. I felt bad about my first review because the workers are really friendly... More

We had a leak in the fan that was in the bathroom and when we went to clean up the water the towel was... More
