“OK for A Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This property shares the pool and great breakfast facilities with the Quality Suites next door. The room was simple, clean, a bit tired around the edges but perfectly adequate for one night. The breakfast on the other hand was fantastic for a hotel with the star status it has. There were lots of extra things on the menu, that you don't normally see at such hotels. This was my first experience at a Sleep Inn and if they are all like this, I would be happy to stay at more of them.

My wife and I are middle aged and spent the Memorial Day holiday weekend with our friends (an elderly couple). We decided to try Sleep Inn because most of the hotels on the beach were full. We rented two rooms on the first floor. Our friend had to spend the night in the hospital after having chest pains on the first day there. The next day when he was released, we put a sign up on his room door that said "happy birthday" because it was his wife's birthday. We were not back more than 10 minutes when we received a knock on the door. It was the manager, Anna Lisa, and the security guard. She immediately told me that we were "being evicted for having a party". I was in shock. I never know that a small sign on the door constituted a "party". She said that since she had to evict another party on a different floor, she had to evicted us! Wow, evicting an elderly couple who just returned from an overnight stay in the hospital for a "happy birthday" sign? I tried to explain that we four adults (two couples) were the only ones in the room, but she insisted that after consulting with the hotel owner, Randy Carlisle, they insisted that our "unauthorized party" mean the criteria for being evicted. I pleaded with her for a number of minutes that we would happily take down the sign and throw the cake away. She finally told us to remove the sign and no more "parties".

I have never been mistreated by a hotel manager in my life. I felt bullied and harassed. I am retired military and have stayed in literally hundreds of hotels all over the world and never came close to being evicted! This was shameful behavior on behalf of the hotel management. The security guard watched my wife put up the small sign on the door an hour earlier and said nothing. With that said, I think we will never stay at another Choice Hotel property again. This will get channeled up to their corporate office.

Furthermore, the swimming pool never had towels available. Our housekeeper only made the bed and did not replenish soap and shampoo. The hotels is one big property. Half of the property is a Sleep Inn and the other half is a Quality Suites. They share the same swimming pool and the breakfast buffet. On both of the nights we were there, there were loud parties with alcohol in the swimming area (until after the posted closing of 10pm). This made using this facility undesirable for us. On a good note, the breakfast buffet was ok.

This hotel is located in a very accessible area. The surrounding grounds are a well kept golf course so the outside is very quiet. The hotel shares a lobby with the Quality Inn, which I have also stayed at. I chose the Sleep Inn this time because they allow pets. The staff was very accommodating, changing rooms for me twice. They allowed me to borrow their wheel chair to take my mom to the boardwalk. The room includes free breakfast. Sleep Inn's are generally a lower cost hotel so the room reflects this, it is not a Marriott but it was comfortable. I usually stay at one of these hotels every time I come to this area for work.

This hotel keeps the rooms updated, and fresh.

People are great, as are the amenities.

They have done away with the Continental breakfast of most Sleep Inns, and replaced it with a full hot buffet breakfast.

In addition, there is a restaurant and bar on premises.

Well worth the visit if you are in the Virginia Beach area.

Have stayed here several times with mixed results, but the past two times have been better. Desk staff is nice, and acknowledged my Elite Diamond status with Choice Hotels. Now has flat-screen TV's. WiFi is fast enough for NetFlix. Quiet and clean. Great hot breakfast buffet, not the typical Choice Hotels powdered eggs and watery OJ.

Great rate for AARP folks.

Room Tip: Second floor was a bit noisy between 7 and 9 PM. Otherwise OK. First floor rooms would probably be...

This review will be short and sweet. We are budget-conscious travelers and have stayed in many Sleep Inns. We have never been disappointed and have returned to every one that we stayed in. This one is no exception. The property was clean and well-maintained, the breakfast assortment a bit more varied than usual and the service was friendly. The Internet worked fine and the price was definitely right. :-)
