“We had a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Holiday Inn Oceanside in Va. Beach was awesome! We drove from Lynchburg Virginia, the hotel is in a great location! It's on the beach, it has tons of shops, restaurants and things to do with the kids all within walking distance. Our room was very spacious and clean. One of the nights we came back from dinner there was no parking so the lady at the front desk let us leave our car out front and they went and parked it at no charge. The staff is extremely helpful and upbeat. I would highly recommend them as our family is already talking about taking our next vacation, we will stay at this hotel again next time. Thank you to Samantha and all of the staff that made our stay very enjoyable!

Very nice, clean hotel that exceeded my expectations. Gorgeous waterfront room with a large deck, which we ate dinner on. Very nice kitchenette and the beds were very comfortable. There were 2 pools, a splash pad, hammocks, bar at the pool, tennis courts and an arcade and it was right on the beach and in the middle of everything. Couldn't ask for anything else!

Thank you for the great comments but we do not have two pools or a bar at our pool. You may have reviewed the wrong hotel. But we hope for your next trip to the beach you look us up.

I've been coming to va beach for various years and this hotel has been the best! No complaints everything is perfect, from housekeeping, to restaurant staff. Location is great right in the middle of the boardwalk. I will definitely be coming back here again!

We stayed the weekend and had a great time. The hotel and room is really clean. It is the perfect location and within walking distance to all shopping and restaurants on Atlantic avenue. The view from the balcony is wonderful. The bar and restaurant is nice but the service was a little slow. The only complaint I have is the front desk. The girl that checked us in didn't seem like she knew what she was doing and the other girl seemed aggravated. So we didn't get a very friendly greeting. They weren't even able to give us any recommendations for dinner when I had called the desk later on that evening so we had to look up restaurants ourselves. We did have a great time and I would recommend this hotel.

This is a great hotel overall. The oceanside rooms offer fantastic ocean views that were great to wake up to. Each room had a nice balcony as well. The rooms are a little pricey for the size but the location is worth it. This location does not offer the typical complimentary breakfast like most HI locations. We did not use the pool due to the great beach but it did look nice. The location on the strip is not too terrible but I would not take kids out there at night. It was fine during the day with plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Thank you for the great review. You are correct every room we have has the same great view. Also, while booking ask for breakfast to be included for an additional $5 and you can have breakfast for the entire family which includes our buffet that has omelet's, and eggs cooked any style you would like. Hope to see you soon.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of June just before the July 4th rush. It's clean, the front desk and housekeeping staff are friendly, and the food/beverage prices at the restaurant are reasonable for breakfast and dinner. Dinner was great— the tacos and she-crab soup were delicious!

The best part is the location— it's not too busy out on the boardwalk in front of this hotel, but it is right in the middle of the stretch of boardwalk, so it's easy to get to everything. We loved the view from the balcony!

Wi-fi was on the slower side and would require a reconnection every time the device (iPad, iPhone, Macbook) "woke up". A little annoying, but not a big deal considering that this hotel provided free wi-fi at all— this was one of the amenities we looked for when we were searching for a hotel.

They also extended their government employee discount to police officers and firefighters— something we definitely appreciate. (Other hotels we called in the area either said they didn't offer the police/firefighter discount during that week, they ran out of rooms available for that rate, or they only offered the discount to federal employees or military families.)

Because the week we stayed was insanely hot, it would have been nice to stay at a hotel with an outdoor pool (which this Holiday Inn location did not have), however their indoor pool was beautiful and was always at the perfect temperature.

Oh! Another plus is that if you forget a razor/shaving cream or toothbrush/toothpaste (small toiletries), they have those for you at the front desk. It was definitely a great perk to not have to shlep down to Walgreens for those things.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor— if you can get yourself up a little before dawn, the view is gorge...

Thank you for the detailed review of our hotel and staff. The WiFi system has been upgraded again since your stay and it is still free along with parking. Rates do change but by the middle of August they will be dropping. Hope to see you soon.

The food in the restaurants were excellent... great customer service..... very spacious king suite!! With excellent view and not a teeny tiny balcony. Would recommend this to anybody. The pool stated that it was heated... I stayed at the end of April so this was an important selling point however myself and my 3 year old son were freezing to the point that we couldn't really stay in longer than 30 minutes total... Although a very beautiful pool.. I did talk to the front desk and they stated that the heated pool can't be above 82 degrees because of some regulation so it wasn't their fault but just know if you are looking for heated like a typical 87 or 88 degrees... this is not it. and either the city or state regulates the temperature so nowhere in VA beach would have real heated/warm pools.

Thank you for the comments about the hotel and staff. Our newly renovated salt water pool has water features that make it unique for an oceanfront hotel. Guests love the temp because it enables them to cool off from the 100 degree temp's outside and they also know we do not use the harsh chemicals that the other operators use in order to keep the PH in line with code. Hope to see you soon.
