“Great fun for the kids”
Reviewed June 29, 2011

This is a very kid-friendly hotel, with lot's to do at the three pools including a lazy river, slides and indoor pool in the back and another pool ocean side that has an outdoor bar. Rooms were clean and the beach in front of the hotel is not crowded and best of all no seagulls.
Also, kids eat free at the restaurant.
Only complaint was the slowww elevators. We took the steps from the third floor most of the time because the elevators took forever.

This is our second visit to the Holiday Inn (used to be called Holiday Inn Sunspree-I believe) in the past eight years. Stayed June 15 - June 18, 2011. We thoroughly enjoyed our most recent visit. We requested a room on the 6th (highest) floor. Elevators are a bit slow; but the view was good (pool and ocean). Beds are very high off the floor and comfortable. Flat screen tv was another bonus. I was delighted to see the fridge and microwave in our room - helped with snacks and lunches. Housekeeping did a good job cleaning the room each day, and we loved having the outdoor balcony (always a must when you're staying on the ocean)!

Our children loved the indoor lazy river and hot tub best. We enjoyed the outdoor pools, esp the one large pool facing the ocean. They have an outdoor bar and dining area.

Nice hotel right on the boardwalk, and I highly recommend to travelers coming to Virginia Beach!

We stayed here a weekend in April. Yes, the ocean was cold but we did immersed our feet in the ocean for a minute. This Hotel is beautiful. I believe the Front Desk mentioned this Hotel was renovated recently. The rooms were very nice (not what I would typically expect of beach front. I love the beach theme in the bedrooms yet very classy - the nightstands, the bathroom and the color schemes were perfect. We took 2 rooms, one was for my 81 year old Mother and she loved the view from the balcony. It's almost like one can touch the ocean. So peaceful. The Front Desk staff was very helpful. On our 2nd night, Saturday night, we had a great dining experience at their Isle of Capri Restaurant. The glass elevator overlooking the ocean takes you up to the top floor where all seating have a great view of the ocean. We ordered their special caesar salad, where dressing and all were made fresh, right infront of you. It was well worth the wait. They also have a great wine list. Food was delicious! I love this Hotel and will come back and stay here in my future visits to Virginia Beach. We drove back home Sunday and realized we forgot the charger to our Nikon camera. We left this plugged in the bathroom. We called and everyone was very helpful, from housekeeping to sales team. They mailed us the charger - and I do not recall seeing the bill yet for this. What a beautiful hotel and lovely staff.

We would highly recommend Holiday Inn & Suites North Beach at 3900 Atlantic Ave because:

-It's very clean and well-maintained. We constantly saw staff cleaning and keeping up the property. They were even power-washing the parking garage! The glass was cleaned on the windows so that the view to the ocean was wonderful! The pools were sparkling! We thought this hotel was brand new but found out that it was just renovated. We couldn't tell that it wasn't brand new!
-The staff was friendly. We ate breakfast every morning at the restaurant for 7 days. Each day we experienced friendly, helpful staff (and the food was delicous and there was a lot of variety.
-We loved the staff childcare at the kid's splash kamp. WOW! It was so nice to drop off our child, have dinner at the hotel and know that our child was safe and having a fun time. Our son begged to go back to splash kamp everyday!
-SAFE! We noticed that the area where the hotel is seemed safe. We never felt unsafe walking the boardwalk outside the hotel even at night. Also, we had to wear wristbands for the week which would be helpful in the event of a missing child as it was linked to the hotel. We even witnessed the hotel staff reunifying a child with their parent after a well-thought out and timely search for their daughter. We HIGHLY commend the hotel staff for finding this child for their family. We understand they found the child after 30 minutes.
-FUN! Three pools and water slides and lazy rivers and a movie theater... right on the beach!! WOW!
-Affordable! We were able to find a package deal on the hotel's website to get a weekly rate. I was even able to get my laundry done before going home. The washers and dryers were FREE!
-Excellent parking and transportation... the parking lots in Virginia Beach are at least $10 a day and the Holiday Inn parking GARAGE was free!! The bus also stopped by the hotel numerous times a day.
-I will make sure that we return to this hotel when we return to Virginia Beach!

We stayed here for 2 nights the week before Memorial Day (Thursday & Friday). My husband surprised me and checked us into the hotel the day of our 10th anniversary. We drove down from NY to stay with our friend but he thought I'd like to stay on the boardwalk, in a hotel the night of our anniversary and he was right!

From the beginning I knew it was going to be a nice stay. The check-in staff were very friendly as were all of the staff we encountered. We had an king oceanfront balcony room on the 3rd floor. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is at the very beginning of the boardwalk (40th street) and the views of the ocean and boardwalk are stellar.

We dined at the adjoining restaurant for their buffet breakfast one morning, and enjoyed a delicious lunch at The Square Whale for lunch the next day. The food was very good as were the wait staff. They seemed eager to please, and in some cases, seemed to go out of their way to make sure you had everything you could possibly need.

The pool area was spacious and clean as well. There were plenty of beach chairs and loungers available both days we were there.

If I were to vacation in Virginia Beach again, I would most certainly stay at this hotel.

My family stayed here on my kids spring break in April, we had a blast. The kids loved loved loved the indoor lazy river and the 2 additional outdoor pools. They also enjoyed the kids club room that had a live tortoise. Kids also eat free with paying adults. Will definitely be back!
