“Beautiful sunrise from the balcony”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We visited mid October and the weather was lovely. The room we had was a one bedroom with a traditional bathroom, unlike what earlier reviewers found. It was the size of a typical suite hotel room, with 2 full beds, tiny kitchen and cozy living room.
The kitchen has a full size fridge, 2 burner cook top and a micro/convection oven. Tightly packed but all you would need. The rooms were a perfect size for a couple, but it would not be comfortable for 6. There is a table by the balcony, so 2 can eat watching the dolphins.
We did not use the pool, but the fitness room center overlooking the ocean would make anyone want to exercise.
The parking lot is a ramp style, with tight spaces, no problem for our small SUV. Just be alert at the turns.
All the suites are oceanfront, so that is a big plus. Restaurants are nearby, as are some good grocery stores.
The staff throughout was friendly, but luckily we did not need to call on anyone, as everything in our unit was functioning well. No complaints.
Yes, you can hear the planes not too far away, but they are not much worse than that heard near an airport, and far less frequent.

We exchanged for this resort 9-22 to 9-27-12..Overall the place is in good shape..Lots of linens,clean and courtious people....The kitchen is tiny tough..Wouldnt want to cook much in there..The design of the building makes for allot of walking to get in/out if your on the other side of the elevators.....
They are trying to sell weeks so when you check in they bug you and every 5 blocks there is someone buging you to arrange a visit to their other timeshares....Gets old quick..

Room Tip: Stay close to the elevators to avoid long back and forth walks.

We have enjoyed the time we spent there, great view, fair size room, and it looks like everything was renovated.

Location was perfect for us, since it was to the end of the boardwalk but a walking distance to everything. VA Beach offers cheap transportation in case you don't feel like walking, but the total board walk is like 40 blocks, a really good exercise I beleive.

Bathroom was a little small, but overall we had a good time.

Recently stayed at the Beach Quarters Resort (BQT) from 9/8-15/12 thru an Interval International exchange. We had a 1 bedroom unit with 1 bath facing the ocean. Here's the scoop.
The good:
1. Location right on the boardwalk on the quieter end (closer to the inlet).
2. The building is a bit old but in good shape and pretty well maintained.
3. Our unit had large balcony facing the ocean with 2 doors (1 by the living rm and the other by the bedroom) and plenty of chairs and tables.
4. Room was clean and comfortable.
5. Roof top pool was a nice place to go if the beach got too windy.
6. Staff was friendly and accomodating.
7. Parking was free.
8. Nice TV's in both rooms.
9. Awesome beach.
10. Walking distance to anything you need.


The bad:
1. Utilizing their wifi was very frustrating and required numerous calls to their tech support desk.
2. Parking garage is pretty tight for large sized SUV's.
3. Bathroom area was quite small and crampt.
4. Kitchen (actually kitchenette) was small compared to most 1 bedroom time share units I've stayed in, but one can manage with it.
5. Building is a bit dated but maintained pretty well.

Overall a decent place. Not as fancy/new as the other Gold Key resorts on the beach, but still pretty nice.


As for the area, the crowds die down in Sept. but there were still some families there and and a fair amount of beach goers. IE. as nice time to go.

Room Tip: stayed in #502

We stayed for a week starting 9/8/12 until 9/15/12. Crowds were gone, water was still warm, the Neptune Festival Wine Festival, and the Mediterrean Festival were on the boardwalk and the NAS Oceana Air Show featuring the Blue Angels were all going on. The resort itself has a rooftop pool with tiki bar, tennis court, indoor pool with hot tub. The exercise room is very nice and overlooks the ocean. Room was very clean and well appointed and just had been renovated last year. The staff was very friendly. It has its own parking deck, but be warned, anything larger than a standard size SUV might be too tight to fit. All rooms have a balcony facing the ocean but stay floor 2 or above or you will see mostly boardwalk. Our only issue is the kitchen is tight and is definitely 1 person only. Beach towels are even provided. Sleeps 4 in the bedroom on 2 beds and 2 on pullout sofa. Short walk to Rudee Inlet for deep sea fishing, stand up paddleboard, parasailing and jet ski.

Timeshare exchange. Check in 09/08/12. Even tho' I list some MINOR complaints,I had an incredible stay and would buy there if available.Loved the location on 5th St.. Quieter area near southern end of beach (also surfing area) next to Rudy's Inlet.W-I-D-E beach with clean, fine sand with nary a sea shell.Lifegaurds were on duty.Wide concrete boardwalk (always clean) with designated bicycle path running parallel. Had a 1 BR unit (sleeps 6) with 2 queen sized beds & pull out sofa.All units are oceanfront with balcony. Everything was very clean with huge beach towels for 6. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. Had to call maintenance twice for tv remote(my fault). They were there promptly.Kitchen is very small but has full size refrigerator,large microwave/convection oven. Starter supplies for coffee, dish soap and dishwasher soap for small (but adequate) dishwasher. Coffeepot for 12, toaster, blender,but no mixer. Hand can opener,corkscrew but no paring knife or peeler. Limited utensils.Dishware,cups,goblets, tumblers and silverware for 6. Cooking pans, measuring cup ( but no measure spoons) casserole dishes ,pitcher & colander.(2) Glass-top electric burners, no oven.
Bathroom is small. No door on vanity area.Bathtub & toilet in a separate very small area with door. Some toiletries.CFL light in that area STINKS. Takes forever for light to come to full light . There is a hair dryer and iron available. Also a safe in room for a fee.Pools are small and indoor pool was a little murky. Another pool on rooftop with pool bar. Fitness center has a small fee because it is not owned by resort. NO charge for parking(yeah) but garage is dimly lit and very tight. Staff was very friendly and helpful.Check-in was quick and easy. Free towel exchange on Weds. Shuttle bus service outside of resort. I got an all day senior pass for $1.00( reg pass $2.00 or .50 per trip with no pass. Many activities on the boardwalk. Resort has activities scheduled every day. Most free. Someone complained about the jet noise. I loved watching the jets take off and while I was there there was an air show for 2 days with the Blue Angels. I considered this a bonus not an annoyance. Outside area was well maintained with plants & flowers. All in all, I was very happy with Beach Quarters and would certainly stay there again & would recommend to others

Room Tip: I would think that any room would be good because they are all oceanfront.

We stayed for three nights. We arrived before the 4pm check-in but were able to get our room early. Our room was clean and up to date. All the rooms have private balconys and are beach front which is why we selected this hotel. The only wierd thing about the room was since the bathroom is open to the the room the toilet was in a tiny closet. The hotel seemed nice enough. The two pools were little but we were there for the beach anyway. As mentioned in other reviews the parking garage is tiny.However, we were always able to find a spot on the first few levels which meant the less turns possible. One bit of warning for those new to Virginia Beach (as we were). The beach is next to an air force base which means LOUD(!) jets constantly fly above. Don't expect to sleep in or nap on the beach. Nothing against the hotel, but we won't be going back to Virginia Beach.
