“Much Improved”
Reviewed August 14, 2007

I have vacationed in VA Beach for over 20 years and have stayed at a variety of hotels on the beach. This particular Days Inn is usually our choice for a last minute trip b/c it is cheaper and sometimes one of the few places with vacancies when you book last minute. I was shocked to find that the hotel had been updated since we last stayed there. We stayed two years ago, and the hotel was looking really bad. I was actually a little nervous this time and hoping it had not become even more run down. But I was very pleased to find completely renovated rooms with pillow-top mattresses, new carpet, new linens, paint, etc. The TV remote was even brand new. They have really made a lot of improvements to the place including adding another hot tub by the pool and a water fall, as well as lots of tropical vegetation in the pool area. The hotel was much cleaner than our previous stays and staff were more friendly. The outside of the hotel could use some touch-ups but I'm not sure how much could be done to improve the exterior appearance of the hotel.

We would stay there again. We pre-paid and got a room with a pool view for $127/night. Our room was even ready at 11am when we arrived. They've added a coffee/smoothie bar at the corner shop under the hotel which was really nicely done and convenient. They've also added an internet cafe and a fitness room, although both of those left a lot to be desired.

Be aware, the construction of condos accross from the hotel has just begun and by next summer the unobstructed ocean view from the hotel will definately be obstructed by a massive condo complex.

Note: If you are looking for egyptian cotten linens and something along the lines of the Hyatt, Marriott, or Hilton....you can book an oceanfront room down the street at one of those places for $350 a night (or higher).

Decent hotel. Great continental breakfast!
This hotle is right accross the road from the beach, with a decent view of the ocean. Staying accross the road was about $100 cheaper than right on the beach, with very little inconveniance.

  • Liked — Location & continental breakfst
  • Disliked — Got a smokers room in spite of reserving non. All rooms booked, so stuck with it.

I'm a 20-something year old woman who decided to take my mother on a much needed "girls vacation." This hotel was nice and comfortable. It was much more of a value to stay across the road from the beach rather than ocean front. I would stay here again if it weren't for the noisy, slamming door neighbors.

Pros:
Location location location, nice second floor pool and hot tub, private balcony (too bad it over looked the back parking lot), lots of pillows, up to date furniture, friendly desk staff, continental breakfast with a lot of seating for guests, small fridge and microwave in the room, exercise room, internet access room, great cleaning staff (checked in with us soon after checking in to make sure we had enough towels and pillows)

Cons:
The shower water was hard to keep at nice tempurature (TOO HOT or cold), the tub was kind of grungy, small bathroom, doors directly to the outside (security?!), only 1 pair of elevators in a very spread out motel, tight parking spaces, lots of slamming doors in the early morning, doors need to be checked to make sure they are tightly closed
