We just got back from Virginia Beach, the weather was great and jellyfish were far and few. The past 2 times we were here we stayed at the Dyas Inn Oceanfront. It was further to walk to the shops and quieter. We thought this year, we would try something new The hotel itself was good, front desk, and anyone who worked there, went out of their way to accomodate. One day coming back from a walk along the boardwalk we were approaching the Holiday Inn and all you could see was a massive swarm of seagulls! It was disgusting. People were feeding them from the balconies! So you can imagine what the balconies below looked like. We told the front desk and they did go out and tell the people to stop feeding the seagulls. But that was an ongoing problem all week. Also one night kids were throwing water balloons at the people walking by on the boardwalk. That was also addressed by the the front desk. Yes the parking is terrible,we only got a space after 4 days, but for the most part we walked everywhere. So nothing against the hotel, it seems that Virginia beach itself is going down the tubes. Which is too bad. Alot of teenagers hanging around looking for trouble.

The hotel was clean and fresh. The room we had was the largest suite they offer. It was very spacious and accomodating. The front desk was always helpful and responded within minutes of request. The parking lot was small but we were lucky to have gotten a spot- once parked -leave it there. You do not need the car to go anywhere but the aquarium which we did before checking into the hotel anyway. This ensures a spot for you and your car. The aquarium was worth the price of the admission just to be able to touch and play with the stingrays. The Imax was also playing the latest batman film. The hotel is central on the boardwalk and all shops and restaurants are close by.
Do not eat at Giovanni's - thefood was ok but not worth our bill. And they add their own gratuity and we were only 5 people. Usually this is added on for parties of 8 or more- $18.00 in gratuity alone we had to pay for service that was not worth that at all- and the pizza had more cheese on it than other toppings- need to ask for them to cook it well done and be careful choosing your toppings - very expensive to add on. Doc Taylor's was the best breakfast place and also the Waffle Company - all you can eat buffet you do not mind eating it all... some buffets you need to be careful of - recommended by the locals to stay away from the seafood buffets. If you want a really good dinner place for a great price - you need to visit Tou Taugs (right beside Doc Taylor's).

Nice hotel, right on the beach. Staff was friendly and accommodating and kept the room cleaned. Room service was great, never actually ate in the restaurant. Room was super clean upon arrival, bathroom is decent sized and beds are actually comfortable.

Cons are

the lack of a larger parking lot, we only managed to snag a space once during the 3 night stay, but the overflow parking lot isn't -that- far away

and the fact that a 12 story hotel only has two elevators so a lot of time was spent waiting forever for the elevator to come. Luckily we were on the 2nd floor so I did a lot of hoofing it up the stairs instead.

Also, there are only 3 luggage carts, so on check out day, all three were being used and 3 people were in line ahead of us, so we ended up carrying all our stuff (6 people stayed including 2 small children) down in 2 trips, not a huge deal.

The view is great and its nice to wake up to the sunrise over the ocean, so any tiny inconveniences were completely overlooked or forgiven.

I plan on going straight back to Virginia Beach first chance I get and will definitely consider this hotel again.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanside July 16 - 18, 2008. The rooms are all oceanfront, so the view is spectacular.

Our king size bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean, and it had a refrigerator and microwave oven. Our room was the quietest hotel room I have ever been in. Wireless internet is available to all rooms.

The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of the shopping district, so you never have to move your car to shop or eat. We ate at the hotel for breakfast and the food was fresh and tasty.

On the negative: parking is lvery imited. Also, this is an older hotel, but it is well maintained. The indoor pool is very small, and there is no outdoor pool or exercise room.

We noticed other hotels offered free continental breakfast. This hotel does not, but we felt we got a good value for our money.

The hotel was very clean. The staff was very pleasant and the Location was awesome. You can walk right pass their indoor pool onto the boardwalk, which of course leads right out to the sandy beach. Their location made late night strolls on the beach inviting. I would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to visit again.
