“Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

I reserved my room direct through Holiday Inn. My rate was $166 + taxes with the gov't rate. With the hotel at the corner of 21st St & Atlantic, you can't get a better location. My family rented 2 rooms next to each other. The only complaints I can come up with are the parking leaves something to be desired and the thermostat in my room (room 808) cooled the room way below what it was set at and was difficult to get the temperature regulated at night. The breakfast was much higher quality than I expected.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the view of the beach. All rooms are oceanfront.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanside Virginia Beach and had a great time. Right from our arrival all through our stay it was great Amanda & Angel were a delight to deal with in fact the entire staff was great. We were also very impressed with Virginia Beach on a whole I would recomend it anyone.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Thank you for the great comments about the hotel but most of all two members of the front desk team. We are very proud of the remodeling that has taken place at the hotel over the last year but because of our caring staff many guests return year after year. Thank you again,

Came here for a couple of nights to relax and see Virginia Beach. Got a great deal on Hotwire. Check-in went smoothly and the very nice young lady at the desk let us pick which floor we wanted so we got a top floor room and the view was amazing! Loved the balcony and the view, it was so nice to sit out there at night and have a drink. Hotel was in a great location and within walking distance of plenty of shops and restaurants. Room was clean and spacious. Liked that a refrigerator and microwave were included. My only complaints are that the ac was very loud so I had a lot of trouble sleeping, we actually had to turn it off in the end and sleep with the door open. And the walls are pretty thin, our first night I hardly slept because the room next door had their TV on all night and it sounded like it was in our room. And then we got woken up at 6am by someone in there singing so even though the bed was really comfy I did not sleep well. That would not stop me from returning though because the good outweighed the bad!

From the complementary check-in Gatorade and microwave popcorn to the beach towels, this is a home-run place to stay. The staff excels with their positive attitudes. The Grand-Slam is being two blocks from Tautog's and Doc Taylor's for meals. Park the car and do not regret leaving it idle.

I agree we have a Home Run here at the Oceanside Holiday Inn. Just park your park and forget about it. Plus the parking is free and join the IHG Rewards Club for free stays anywhere in the US.

Check in with Amanda went smoothly and she was helpful and professional. The water ice at check in was a nice touch although we did not take any.

We were on the 11th floor which had great views of the ocean and when in the hallway, the hallway is all glass which provided a great inland view. The balconies are a nice size and the rooms were clean with a nice size with a refrigerator, coffee maker, but no safe.

When we left the room, I left a tip on the table for the housekeeper. When we returned, the room was clean and the money was still there. When I finally saw her in the hall, I asked her if she was the one that cleaned our room because I left money for her; she explained they do not touch anything that is laying anywhere. It may be helpful if there is an envelope for gratuities left in the room. I like to leave a tip daily because I realize the one cleaning the room may not be there the day of departure and someone else would get the money for one day's cleaning.

We were not impressed with the restaurant. The sun shines brightly into the dining room which shines on you while eating and warms the area a bit too much. Maybe some sort of window tinting would help?

The waitresses seemed to be inexperienced although very polite. Each time we ate in the restaurant, something was not served as requested. The breakfast buffet ran out of items and was not replenished as quickly as it should be. The fruit choices were fantastic. It seems some of the servers do not use trays and handle the glasses by the rims. A little more training is in order.

We would return to this hotel; however, unless the restaurant service improves, we would eat elsewhere. I am rating this a very good because of the hotel; if the servers were better trained, I would have given it an excellent rating.

Room Tip: The higher floors give a greater view of everything although all of the floors have great views of t...

RAN FROM a bad booking at a neighboring hotel and got RED CARPET TREATMENT at Holiday Inn from Lenita Jones!! Arrived at the hotel late, tired, hungry, and extremely frustrated with that other hotel for the shabby conditions as we were misinformed by an online booking agency. We quickly cancelled our reservation there and RAN to Holiday Inn. It was late but the nite manager gave us rockstar treatment and our room rate was even CHEAPER than that other fly-by-nite hotel!!! The food was WONDERFUL, and our kids LOVED the pool and toy chest!! Super Clean! The warmest and friendliest hospitality we have ever received! Bravo Holiday Inn!!! We will be back!
