Needed a hotel in the Virginia Beach area for Labor Day. Most of the decent hotels in Virginia Beach are quite expensive this time of year so I decided to get an inexpensive room near the airport.
The Pros. Inexpensive compared to hotels in Virginia Beach. Close to the airport. Very convenient to the freeway. Safe location. Clean room with microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Staff was exceedingly friendly; gave directions, recommendations for eating out, and provided extra coffee and sugar upon request. Hotel has indoor pool and hot tub, as well as a decent exercise room. Near IHOP, Target and Wal Mart, so if you need to grab something that you left at home it is right down the street.
The Cons. Norfolk, with the exception of downtown, is a working class town that does not really cater to tourists. I am from a poor town and found myself thinking of just how much Norfolk reminded me of a bigger version of my hometown. I didn't see any nice restaurants near the hotel. Housekeeping did not clean my room either of the three days I was there. I did not ask for housekeeping to do so but found it peculiar that it did not. No hair dryer in room.
All in all I found this hotel very good, especially for the price and recommend it to people on a budget.
