A very pleasant experience. All the staff were helpful, friendly without being smothering. Rooms were simple but clean and well kept. This is right on the beach, so all rooms have a view. I stayed over a "student beach weekend" which had potential for wildness, the management brokes no disruptive behavior. Just pleasant hardworking people!!

We just arrived back from a one night stay at the Econo Lodge Oceanfront, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.
The bedding was very clean, and the pillows and mattresses were very comfortable. The room shows slight wear and tear, but nothing outrageous. Overall, we were pleased with the cleanliness.
Basic continental breakfast (make your own waffle, cereal, lots of pastries, muffins, bagels with the spreads, juice and decent coffee).
The indoor pool is small (11 person capacity) but the water and area around it is VERY CLEAN, and lots and lots of towels.
The front desk staff, and cleaning staff are super nice people. Everyone smiled, and even offered advice on a few things to do on our short rainy stay.
No, its not a resort, but it is affordable, clean, you get free breakfast and wifi, and you'll sleep well on a soft bed. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: It is RIGHT on the ocean front... we stayed on a lower floor and the view was fabulous. Walking dist...

Not bad, right on the beach with and indoor pool. Just what we was looking for.
It's an older property but it's kept up well, fits into the family budget well below the over price oceanfront Hotel.
Good value beach, pool and free breakfast what more one ask for.
On site parking big plus, friendly staff.
We enjoyed our visit.
Hope to return next time we are in Virginia Beach.

Stayed here 12/6-12/8. I messed up my reservations (online), called the day before arrival, and Yolanda fixed everything for me. She was so nice and understanding. Room was adaquate, nice TV, small micro and fridge, big bathroom. Breakfast was typical continental, pastries, cereal, bread, waffles. Pool was small but nice. I felt safe my entire stay. I would definately stay here again if we visit again during the off-season, but probably not during peak because of the small pool, the one elevator, and the tight parking. Staff was very nice and helpful with all of my questions.

I had a reservation for two nights. The staff I encountered were very friendly. The room had a lovely view, and altogether it was definitely worth the money! The only thing I didnt care for was the parking; it was a little snug. No complaints here though. I would definitely return again!

When we arrived at the Econo Lodge the lobby was in disarray. They were cleaning, which would normally be a good sign. Trying to check in proved a little difficult since they could not at first find our reservations. They did. After checking in, we drove up a ramp which lead to the parking area. Believe me, if the hotel was crowded, parking would not have been easy. The parking facility was not conducive to driving through. The turns to go up a level were extremely tight and there was no way to see around a corner. How they stay accident free is a mystery.
Once you have parked, I hope you arent exhausted from your trip, because getting to the room is not a quick experience. There is one elevator and it is excruciatingly slow. If you are sleepy or have to go to the bathroom you might be in trouble.
The room itself isnt bad. It could use a little updating, but so can most hotels in Virginia Beach these days. Especially the bathrooms. What staff we saw were helpful. I saw a housekeeping cart on two occasions, but no staff behind the cart. When we were checking out, there was a cart in the hallway and the housekeeping person was in a room watching TV. The problem with the hotel is one that affects all hotels. For what you are getting they are extremely overpriced. Especially in what is supposed to be off season. Considering how little upkeep there is, they could stand to lower off season prices some. The pool, if you want to call it that, was located right in the lobby and was about the size of a postage stamp. If you get in the pool and you are the only ones in there you should have room. One or two kids in that pool and it would be intolerable.

Room Tip: There are not that many rooms but there is a pretty good view from which ever room you get. As long...
