“Not pleased”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I attended my brothers wedding in 2012 and stayed at this motel. It was supposed to offer continental breakfast and coffee, continental breakfast was non existent and the coffee was lousy. Rooms were not what I would call adequate for the price I paid per room. Though it is across the street from the beach i would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.

Room Tip: Don't go here.

Stayed here for 2 weeks b/c Navy Lodge & Q ran out of room at all bases. I searched for the lowest rate in town. Stayed here b/c of location. What a mistake! The cleaning lady was a sight, the proprietors were rude, and the room was never clean. It's location in terms of proximity is great, but that's about it.

  • Liked — Proximity to military bases in and around Norfolk
  • Disliked — Room cleanliness

Although the advertising board out front said, "Recently Renovated!", it was obvious that this was not the case. Dirt on the carpet appliances not even plugged in and running, broken towel racks, coarse towels and in a no smoking room, the unmistakable odour of stale smoke! Avoid this place at all costs; if you decide to stay make them pay you rather than the other way around!
