“Very Nice Hotel!”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

We stayed at the Holiday Inn North Beach July 2011. The hotel is located at the northern end of the boardwalk. You had the convenience of having the boardwalk right outside the hotel for taking a stroll or bike ride but it was about a 5 minute walk to get down to where the stores/restuarants start on the main drag in front of the hotel. There are Air Force/Navy jets (and often helicopters) flying over throughout the day and most of the early evening. I suppose some people might complain about the noise. My family thought this was AWESOME! The rooms were nicely decorated and we didn't notice anything that seemed unclean. Beds were comfortable with ample pillows. Elevator on the North side was always fast.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and a great value. (The price includes your drink with unlimited refills pop, coffee, orange juice, apple juice, cranberry juice, etc.) The buffet has waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, made to order omelletes or fried eggs, eggs benedict, corned beef hash, loads of fresh fruit, cereal, pastries, bagels, yogurt, etc. Kids 12 and under eat free as long as you eat inside the restaurant. This includes dining inside the Square Whale but does NOT include pool side ordering.

2 pools. The oceanside pool is very large with lots of seating. The front pool was smaller with some water slides and a small outdoor lazy river. This pool seemed perfect for those with smaller children. There is an indoor lazy river and hot tub but the chlorine levels are almost unbearable. The hotel also features a Kids Kamp area and a movie theater that showed I think 3 different movies daily. We didn't use any of those amenities but we checked them out and they seemed nice.

We would stay here again if we travel back to Virginia Beach. Several people have noted trouble with key cards not working. A note on the key cards....insert your key card into the door, press down with your thumb and slowly pull the card out. VOILA! Your card works.

I highly recommend the Holiday Inn & Suites North Beach, Virginia Beach, VA to everyone! The hotel is modern and beautiful. All of the employees were so very nice, the food in the restaurants was delicious, the rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. The view of the ocean from our private balcony was breath taking! The pools were wonderful and 'the lazy river' was so much fun! Another great thing is this hotel's location at the north end of the boardwalk. The beach is not as crowded but people watching is still a lot of fun. I will definitely return to this hotel for my next trip to VA Beach!

This was our 4th time in VA Beach and 3rd time staying at this hotel. Every time we return it gets better and better. We have a family of 5 so finding a hotel that accomodates us is a little difficult at times. Since our last visit, the Holiday Inn has added beutiful family-sized suites and I think we got the best room in the entire hotel. It was AMAZING with 2 king sized beds and sofa bed as well as table and wet bar with microwave/fridge. Both rooms were very spacious and the bathroom that had three sections--two toilets, three sinks and a shower. Perfect for a family and definitely spoiled us since it will be unlikely that we find a suite this size again anytime soon.

The best judge of a good room though is the comfort of the beds and they were wonderful. I felt like I was sleeping at home.

Only downside is that we went in July which means we probably paid top dollar to stay here--other times of the year it may not be as expensive

As far as activities. The hotel has nice pools outside and a lazy river pool inside. We spent most of our time at the new kids pool which had a couple of slides that our 6 yr old loved. We were on the 1st floor of the hotel and could walk right out to the boardwalk and beach which was also really convenient.

Suggested fun activities we did beyond the hotel/beach:
- Jet skiiing on the ocean--cool! - Go to Rudee Inlet Rentals
- Victory Cruise in Norfolk past the naval shipyard--it's awe inspiring to see battle ships and aircraft carriers that close up
- Tour NAS Oceana and watch the fighter jets take off and land
- Eat dinner at Captain George's all-you-can-eat seafood buffet (includes crab)--YUMMY!!

If we make it back to VA Beach for a 5th visit, we definitely will stay here again. Just wondering what they'll add next time to make it even better.

Room Tip: Room 101 is likely one of the best rooms in the entire hotel. If you have a family of 5+, don't...

My daughter and I had one night to spend in Virginia Beach. We wanted to find a nice place on the beach that was affordable. We found the Holiday Inn and Suites North Beach and were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was for the price. The hotel is right on the beach. The boardwalk and the beaches were beautiful and clean. There is a pool that overlooks the beach which was lovely, with a full service bar. It was very crowded the day we were there, but it was a Friday in July!! The room was a nice, standard hotel room with a balcony overlooking the beach. Free parking was provided across the street. We would definitely recommend this hotel to families wishing to stay on the beach in Va Beach!!

Beautiful property right on the boardwalk and beach. Two pools, outdoor seating overlooking the beach and ocean. At the end of the boardwalk, nice and quiet but still close to everything. We will return and we highly recommend the Holiday Inn Virginia Beach - North Beach!

We spent 4 nights with our kids in July 2011.

Positives:
Kids loved the pools and lazy river.
Hotel staff was very friendly.
Square Whale restaurant was very convenient and affordable.
Hotel is located in less crowded part of the beach.
Free theater with a good movie collection.

Negatives:
Bad climate engineering causes hall ways to turn into sauna when sun heats the glass facade.
Indoor lazy pool had high level of chlorine and bad airducts created overheated areas around it.
No one was watching to ensure that only hotel guests were using the pools so outsiders were crashing in.
Naval air station related aircraft's fight path was directly above the hotel; aircraft noise every 20 minutes or so during day/evening; not night.
Only two elevators (one to seventh floor) causing long delays.

Room Tip: Get oceanfron room on 3 floor or above. Higher the better view.
