“Amazing staff and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Thank you Trip Advisor friends for pointing me to this great lodging for my family! The staff was truly gracious and went out of their way to ensure my older parents had a comfortable room, we enjoyed the amenities (bikes, pool) and got the most out of our two days in the area. It's all true - great views of the ocean, right on the boardwalk, perfectly fine accommodations. When our hairdryer went on the fritz, they replaced it within minutes of us reporting the problem. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely come back to the Econo Lodge on the Ocean. Thank you for offering a great value with such personal service.

The Econolodge at Virginia Beach is a great value. The staff is super nice and helpful. You won't find better people in the area! The rooms are clean, though a little dated and the bathroom was a bit small. But the location and price can't be beat. A continental breakfast is included also and free bike rentals. The bikes looked a bit worn out, but we didn't ride them, so I can't say how they handled. I was satisfied overall with our stay and recommend others to stay here. It's not the Hilton, but if you don't need the Hilton, this is a great place to stay. The old saying is "You get what you pay for". Well, you get a little more at the Econolodge at Virginia Beach. To the staff at the Econolodge, Keep up the good work!!

When I selected the hotel, I was hoping for a beach and ocean view. Unfortunately, we booked the hotel via Priceline, and when we got there, we found that the Priceline rate entitled us to a gound floor room which had a view of the people walking by on the boardwalk and they of us. The upper floors are priced higher. If I knew this beforehand, I would have definitely made arrangementments directly with the hotel vs. through Priceline.

Otherwise, the hotel was clean, conforrtable, and definitely in a great location. The breakfast consisted of juice, coffee, cereal, bagels, and danish.

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. We are sorry that you were not on a higher floor so you could better enjoy the view, but we would have happily relocated you upstairs, assuming we had availability. Your room location was determined by you at the time of booking. However, reading every little detail in a room description online can be a mind-numbing exercise especially when comparing multiple properties. Please let us know the next time you come to town and we will get you in a room more to your liking! Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again very soon!

I choose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and pleased to find they accurately described this experience. The staff is friendly and caring. We stayed in the double bed room and found it to be clean and nicely furnished. Views are beautiful. Smoke-free facility which is imperative for me traveling with 2 allergic children. They have bicycles available for guests to use. Continental breakfast is basic but it was all we needed. Staff actually patrols the parking lot to ensure you remember to display your parking tag and they will save your parking spot for you if you drive a larger vehicle. Overall great experience. I highly recommend this hotel.

We were in town for a cheerleading competition and found this hotel through trip advisor. This was our third year going to Virginia beach for this event and have stayed at a different hotel each time due to being dissatisfied with each one we've been at. We were so happy with this hotel and this is where we will stay from here on out. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Parking is a bear at Virginia beach and this hotel actually saves your spot for you when you leave. The view of the beach is also excellent as all rooms are oceanfront. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that's looking for a great beach experience!

This is an older property with small rooms that has been very well maintained. The owners have clearly made every effort to insure that they are competitive with the fancy oceanfront places by offering a lower cost beachfront option.
The staff is excellent, friendly and efficient.
If you have an issue with small rooms and beds this is not a good option if you want a double room. Didn't look at single rooms, which I imagine are the same size size as the doubles but feel roomier with the elimination of the second bed.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our hotel. Your comments reflect the wonderful hospitality that our staff is famous for and I couldn't be prouder or happier that their efforts are being recognized.
Our room size is actually pretty standard in the industry, possibly slightly larger than some of the other oceanfront hotels that we are familiar with. However, your are correct that the rooms with a single King bed do feel a bit roomier without the second bed.
We are very pleased you chose to stay with us. There are many options to choose from in Virginia Beach and we truly appreciate your business, and hope we get to see you again soon!

Thanks to my fellow TripAdvisor reviewers for recommending this great hotel. The facilities were clean and well-maintained, the room was spacious, the front desk personnel was very friendly and efficient, the breakfast was simple but tasty, and the location right on the beach is perfect. The room rate was more than fair, and that completed a great experience. I will certainly look at this hotel first if I should return to Virginia Beach in the future.
