“Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stayed here just overnight after seeing Cirque De Soliel. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Hotel is on the older side, but very clean and nice updated bathrooms. Pillows could have been a bit more firm, but otherwise the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was very good; nice variety with eggs, bisquits, waffles, toast, cereal and muffins. The room also had a really nice kitchenette with full fridge/freezer, oven/stove, microwave, and coffee maker. They also furnish dishes, pots/pans and silverware. Overall a very nice stay.

Room Tip: I believe the rooms in the Towers have balconies overlooking the bay, but on check in we inquired ab...

We stayed here over a Saturday night in mid-March and overall, were satisfied with the hotel itself. The property itself was older but has been updated and the staff, friendly. We were given a room in their tower building which included a balcony over looking the bay and a small kitchenette. The room was clean, beds were firm but not uncomfortable. Breakfast was typical continental fare plus eggs and a waffle bar. Weather was too cold to comment on the pool area but it looked nicely kept from the balcony.

This hotel doesn't seem to be in the best of locations and the partying of some other guests and noise from the surrounding area made it hard to sleep. Not sure we would recommend to a family with kids. The staff does seem to try hard and overall we didn't have any major problems or complaints. If it were located in a neighborhood similar to the Lynnhaven area I'd say we'd definitely be back, however this hotel's location will probably keep that from happening.

Room Tip: Only the rooms in the tower building seem to 100% oceanfront, other are "oceanview".

I had to come to the Norfolk/V.Beach area for business and was afraid of what I'd find as the hotel was priced quite reasonably - even for the off-season. But, my fears were unfounded as the desk clerk on duty was amazingly friendly and helpful, there were no crowds, no loud parties, nothing to even insinuate that there was anyone else staying at the hotel until you went outside. The breakfast was great - it was hot, fresh and varied. The room was comfortable, TV selection was good, wifi worked very well, check-in and out was uneventful and quick. I've stayed here before and probably will again when in the area.

My wife and I made reservations and when we arrived we were very pleased with our room and it's clean condition. We stayed 2 nights but the room was never cleaned between 1st and 2nd day. We called the front desk and they apologized and sent up more towels but told us house keeping had already left for the day. When you stay in a hotel you expect to have your room cleaned and bed remade with clean towels everyday!

Great staff, clean rooms, good breakfast. The standard rooms are like little mini suites. Two rooms, two TV's. I've stayed here twice and will stay again. The breakfast is fine, nothing fantastic, but there are eggs, waffles, cereal, yogurt. The coffee is pretty good. And there is always coffee in the lobby as well as in the room. I like coffee!

Room Tip: Try to get a window that faces Chesapeake Bay. The sunrises are beautiful.

We recently where visiting our grandchildren who are in the Navy and stayed at this location and enjoyed the personnel who serviced us during our stay. We will return to this location in the future. We had a wonderful experience and the next trip we plan to take in some of the sites to visit while in Norfolk, VA.

Room Tip: ask for the view of the bay.
