I went to VA beach this past weekend as a get away for a few days. I went on this vaca to relax and have a stress free environment to only find that this "hotel" was definitely NOT a good get away. This room was filthy, the sheets on the bed were dirty, the bathroom looked like it was not cleaned for years. The TV was outdated and the floors had stains on them. I do not recommend this motel.

This is now my second time staying at this particular hotel and its ideal for me. Close to dining and major interstates. They were very willing to accommodate my request for a room change to fit my needs and have been always clean and welcoming.

This is a good hotel if you are looking to save some money and not spend a lot of time at the hotel. The staff had a tendency to be surly, but that's not a problem if you're like me and don't spend a lot of time in the lobby. But the room was clean and comfortable, and the free wifi was definitely a plus.

I stayed here one night before an early flight out of Norfolk. The lobby smelled strongly of cigarette smoke but I had a non-smoking room which did not smell. The check in woman was very friendly and I was able to check in several hours early. I do not like that they take an imprint of your credit card on a piece of paper that has a copy of your ID on it. This would be a very easy thing for someone to get a hold of and use your card. The rooms are very simple but adequate for a night's stay. The bed was okay but the pillows were very lumpy. Wifi in the room was nice. Breakfast consistent of two cereal choices and bread.

Room Tip: Rooms near the Lobby/Restaurant have better Wifi but if you don't have the AC/Heat unit going you will hear the music from the bar.
