I tave a lot and I try to stay at a marriott or courtyard. This hotel was dirty. Business centerhas 3 old computers that are too slow and a black and white printer. There were annts all over the place. The halls and elevators smell sour. The parking lot is way to small. The manager was of no help, so I left without staying over night.

Exterior looks good but first problem was too little parking. Says free valet but only one attendent and he's never there, always busy. You have to park two blocks away..okay during the day but a bit scary at night. The location isn't upscale. The beach is beautiful. They have a small indoor pool and fitness room. The rooms are big and ours had a full kitchenette (not plates, pots, or utensils however). The interior is old and dated..not what I'm used to for a Marriott. The fitted sheets aren't even fitted, they pull right off, the showers leak. I was told I'd have two private balconies..got one in the living room area (the bedroom windows overlooked the front parking area). The AC was very loud. The elevator was broken for most of our stay...luckily we were on the second floor..we took the stairs. Won't be back.

We booked on Priceline and bid $55 for 1 night. Good price by far!

Easy to find on the strip and in the heart of it all. Free parking and the staff were great. Anything you need, they will go above and beyond what you expect.

All rooms are ocean views! Never need to pay more. Flat screen TV, roomy balcony with seating, VERY large rooms. Spa like bathrooms and free wi fi!! Coffee/fruit bar in the lobby. Lounge and cafe in hotel makes oh so convienient.

The pool and hot tub were nice as well. Relaxing and open till 11pm for those who check in later in the evening.

We also used the laundry room, cheap to wash and dry $1 each load.

You need your key to get into pretty much anything, including the hotel from the beach. Made us feel safe. Staff walk the halls often too.

A must if your staying on the beach.

We are somewhat of a picky family that is used to staying at 5 star hotels. While this isn't 5 star - it was very clean; right on the beach; customer service was good and it was a great price. I had low expectations for Virginia Beach as I was expecting to find it dirty and run down. We found this hotel to be nice and the boardwalk was clean, well maintained and fun. I certainly would recommend this place to anyone who is planning a visit.

My family recently stayed at the Courtyard in April. I was nervous about the beach being empty, the weather cold, etc. I was dead wrong! The temperatures didn't drop below 75 any day that we were there, we were sunning on the beach the entire stay! The hotel itself was amazing. The breakfasts, the maid service... best of all was the front desk, who went so far out of their way to help us that we felt they were our friends immediately. The hotel's location was central to some great restaurants, like taltogs, which was also great! The view from the balcony was to die for. Although the weather was warm, the ocean was numbing cold, so we swam in the pool, which was clean and enjoyable. if you ever go to virginia beach, this is the hotel to stay at!

The room was ok, the staff were very nice, and the cookies were awesome. However, my room was not very clean and the door was extremely hard to open and close. The parking lot is a little tight, so it is hard to park and exit the lot. I am a little picky when it comes to hotels, but cleanliness is a must. The room had hair and something on the wall (???) in the bathroom. I wouldn't stay there again.

Of all the hotels on the beach - I've stayed in about seven of them - this one is one of the best. It is newer (or at least looks newer) than most. Most hotels on the beach are older and have that stale, oceany smell. This one did not! It was VERY clean - which is the number one thing for me! The decor was fun and sophisticated. The restaurant was friendly and comfortable. The lobby was also very nice - coffee and tea whenever needed and comfy chairs. The indoor pool & hot tub were nice and there was direct access to the boardwalk. We sprung for the jacuzzi room this time. It was very nice and VERY quiet (the second most important 'thing' for me!). Although, we were at the end of a hall - so it may not have been a great test for quietness. The balcony was wonderful - overlooking the boardwalk. We left the door cracked and listened to ocean waves all night. The bed was very clean and comfortable - except the second night. The sheets they put on had a crinkled texture and were a little hard on the skin. The only bad thing was that there was no microwave in the room. That made the restaurant leftovers in the refrigerator worthless. The coffee maker was on the bath vanity (outside the separate toilet/shower area). So there was no place to prepare food/drink.
