“Took a chance on price for the weekend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

I won't stay here again. Clean sheets, soft bed, old style bedspreads, stains on the box springs, cracked mismatched furniture on the balcony. The tv would lose sound for no reason. The elevator was hot, once we reached our room level, the walk to our room was oppressively hot (difficult breathe)..not nearly enough ventilation...got better when the sun went down. It seems they added glass across the front of the building to make it an interior room entrance. I walked into the Hilton and Ramada and quickly realized my mistake in penny pinching. I typically stay at Marriott brand hotels and knew the risk of going with an Econo Lodge. If I were to go back to Virginia Beach..probably won't, I would pay the additional $100 a night to stay at Hilton, Ramada or one of the Marriotts.

I'm trying to honestly review all the hotels I've ever stayed in at Virginia Beach. I have stayed at over 40 different ones over the years. This hotel was one of the older ones at the beach. No flat screen TVs. Old style ones. Teeny tiny rooms. Continental breakfast was very limited. Would not stay there again. Parking was free and in the garage. As soon as you come in off 64 the hotel is right there to the left. Bathtub was not completely clean.

The value for the 2 night stay was excellent. However, the continental breakfast was not worth it as there was not much protein or fresh foods (lacking fruit or yogurt etc.) The kitchenette was well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and even dish detergent which was nice. However, the carpet was filthy and I had to wipe my son's feet several times to get the dirt off. I would recommend to pay a bit more to get a nicer experience. If you're only going to be on the beach and need a place to crash, this hotel might be it. The indoor pool was very small (only 11 person capacity) and lobby was small. The staff was not overly friendly,

We stay here at least 2 times yearly, Bob the Manager, when we walk through the door, knows us by name, and is ready to help us get started on our vacation. The entire staff is VERY helpful, if you need anything they are on top of it!! The view cannot be beat, Very central located. I cannot say enough about this hotel, We will be returning every year, because we know what we are getting, clean rooms, great staff, and trust!! Thanks Bob, and all of ECONO staff, for ALWAYS GIVING US A WONDERFUL STAY!!

Snug rooms and not the fanciest hotel on the beach, but definitely the friendliest we have found in our many years of visiting Virginia Beach.Bleaching

We are here for Memorial Day weekend and have found this to be a good place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the room, although the decor is a bit dated, is a good size and clean. The beds are comfortable and it is nice to have a refrig and microwave. Every room has a private balcony overlooking the ocean. The included breakfast was a bit sparse. There is only one elevator, so sometimes you have to wait.

Great customer service,spacious room would most definitely refer to family and friends. The room was a little dusty the balcony door could use some maintenace but I have experienced much much worse! I will stay here again the view made the minor imperfections easier to deal with!
