Overall worth the stay. Able to check in early and check out late. Small pool that was heated. In the midde of the summer it should have been cooled for a refreshing swim. Great access to beach. Restarants and mini gf in walking distance. Not enough parking. There is an overflow lot but it is next to a night club and our car was covered in ashes in tbe morning. The only good thing about the breakfast buffet was that kids eat free. Not enough staff and thecservers get called away for room service.

We stayed on the top floor in a suite with 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa and kitchenette. The room had two balconies and was very roomy. Great spot to access anything on VA Beach, directly over looks beach. Pool is ONLY indoor. Free breakfast was nice. Outdoor restaurant and bar was fabulous with live music some nights. Would definitely stay there again.

I felt like Goldilocks, needing to change rooms 3 times b/c of reasons unrelated to the hotel staff. 1st. Ours was a double bed, and we don't fit in a double together, so we requested a King, by the a.m. a king was available. BUT someone had smoked in the room, so before we unpacked we requested a different King if available. The manager Jimmy along with upper management Mary Elizabeth got a key for the new room, but it wasn't cleaned. We enjoyed a Wonderful lunch in their dining room while we waited. The room was perfect, as were all of the staff. Our maid on the 1st floor was sooo cute and adorable and took pride in her work! We loved the hotel sooo much, we ate a wonderful Grouper sandwich for supper there. AND Jimmy refered us to a dining destination outside the hotel that had a very memorable she crab soup called Tautogs. 2 blocks away. We were there on business, but felt like a romantic getaway. Thanks Jimmy, and Mary Elizabeth and all the staff. Not all Vacation beachfront hotels are =. These people try hard and the difference is seen and felt!

As locals we never stay at the oceanfront. This weekend we made an exception and stayed for two nights. So glad we did. The hotel was clean, the staff was very friendly, dinner on the restaurant patio was relaxing, but the breakfast buffet was the best deal in town. We plan to do it again in the fall! Thanks for a wonderful staycation!

We have been here eight years in a row. We book the suite each year. The rooms are in desperate need of remodeling. We have been here three days now and have come home to a soaked carpet each night. When we called the front desk, they could not fit us into another room that could accommodate all five of us. Yes, I understand, that this is peak season, but we were promised a complimentary meal by the front desk, and they have somehow forgotten that conversation. Their maintenance cannot fix the leak from the air conditioner, so I feel that they should have done something to make up for this. We pay for this room each year - we are simply ignored. I am forcing husband to give up his priority membership and switch hotels because of this. They are doing nothing. Three phone calls and they are throwing a ten year visitor down the drain. Good bye Holiday Inn. We work too hard to be treated like this on a vacation.

This was our first stay at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. It will not be our last. I do not have a single complaint about our stay. The staff was very friendly, expecially at check-in. I wish I could remember the desk clerks name, she was great. The room was very clean upon arrival, the AC worked perfectly. The view was great, as well as the location. This was our first trip to VA Beach that we walked everywhere we went. We did not eat at the resturant so I can't help you out there. Hope this helps out. We can't wait to go back next year !!!!

The property is not the newest but one can clearly see that some renovations have been undertaken. Arrived at 7 PM and check-in was quick and painless. The receptionist was very friendly. Got to the room, "King Bed Executive Oceanfront, Smoking", which was very spacious with the usual amneties. The room was clean, bathroom a little small in relationship to room size but plenty of towels. The view from the private balcony was super.
The Hotel is centrally situated with many restaurants and shopping (mainly beeach junk - sometimes called souvenirs) within walking distance. Easy access to boardwalk/beach. Parking is no problem. Although a little pricy, for off-season, but overall not a bad value.

Room Tip: definately get oceanfront
