Clarion Inn & Suites Virginia Beach

Reviewed July 27, 2013

Very large room and clean. Worked out well for my family of four. Location is great and walk to beach is across the street one block. Mini fridge in room was nice. Breakfast was ok. The only problem we had was with the pool area and tiki bar. We ordered 3 sandwiches and waited for 30 minutes only to be told they had been sitting back there waiting to be served. Then, they tried to serve the same food to us and, to compound the issue, had the order wrong. After much discussion, they politely refunded the money and we went elsewhere for lunch. The next day was cloudy and windy so we opted to skip the beach and go to the pool at 2pm and have a beverage while the kids swam. Unfortunately, the tiki bar , with advertised happy hour 1-6, was closed but we were told the girl running the bar would be back at 6.? We again went elsewhere for a beverage and munchies. Overall, nice room and clean but service lacked in some areas.

My family and I arrived on a Sunday for our 4pm check-in; however our rooms weren't ready until 6pm. We had to come back to the front desk 3 times before we could finally check-in. Every time there were a ton of people waiting in line and their rooms weren't ready either. The girl at the counter, Kristen, was very patient and was trying her best. A lot of the people were very rude to her, but this wasn't her fault. There was no manager on staff to help with the situation. I don't know why you would only have one person working at the check-in time. We were told that they had more than usual check out that day and it caused them to be late getting the rooms cleaned. The rooms were a nice size, but the bathroom was extremely small and no counter space. Also, the breakfast area was a disappointment too. The first morning there were no plates and you had to use bowls for everything and they ran out of food. The lady said that they had such a busy weekend and that the truck was late. I don't understand why during peak season why you wouldn't be prepared for max capacity crowds. My family traveled with my sister and her family and we were all disappointed. We would never stay here again.

We were lucky to get one room for one day on very short notice. the 2 queen beds room were surprisingly large as other reviews said. Room was very elegant, nicely decorated w/pleasing colors and furnishing. Bathroom was not big but clean and nice hot shower made it enjoyable! Complimentary breakfast was surprisingly elaborate w/everything you can think of. Nothing too healthy like whole grain break or waffle but your average white flower, white pastry fare. Plenty of juice, coffee, cereal, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, etc. Room and corridors were clean. Beds were very comfy w/fluffy pillows. We had a 2nd floor room and it was very quiet for sleeping. Very happy and satisfied w/our 1 day stay. Will probably stay here again if we come to the Beach area.

Room Tip: higher floors you can get a full ocean view.

I was pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Clarion Inn. The hotel is well maintained and clean. Our room consisted of two queen beds, a sofa area, flat screen tv, mini fridge, and ice cold air conditioning. The front desk also provided us with a crib for our baby, free of charge. The bathroom is rather small, but not a big deal. The decor looked rather new and was tastefully done. We used a coupon upon check in from one of the hotel magazines we picked up from a rest area in Virginia and saved a decent amount. The staff was very friendly- from maintenance to hostess to bartender. However, it did seem that the hospitality dept. was understaffed. It took most of the afternoon to get towels and wash clothes. Too long in fact that we would just meet the staff down the hallway to switch out towels for new ones and empty our trash. Our room wasn't touched the entire time we were there. I did hear a staff member mention that there were a lot of call offs. In summary...the pros...clean, great complimentary hot breakfast, location across the street from the beach, friendly staff, value, and the pool bar was great! Better orange crush here than at Waterman's...no joke! Also, $2 large Tecate cans was a nice find. The cons....understaffed hospitality department, slow elevator, the entire property only has 2 luggage carts which means multiple trips down the slow elevator, check in can take a while, and that's about it...

Overall good time at the property, we left pleased with our stay here. Definitely an option when we come back next year.

Place is laid out strangely. Packed with people everywhere you turn. Pool is jam packed. Would not ever consider staying at the oceanfront during the season again. It's not just this hotel it's the oceanfront in general.

There was loud Noise all night long when we called the front desk to bring it to their attention- they were quite rude. There were too many people waiting for breakfast. Just not the best experience. Parking was easy- which was nice, the actual room was nice- it was clean, but We won't be back.

Whenever I see a place like this with so many good reviews I always question the source and the reliability. this place is definitely not 4 stars. The only reason I would give 3 stars is because I'm not sure where any hotel on the oceanfront would be much better. I'm writing this review while a fire alarm someone pulled blares on at 2AM from our room here at the clarion. I'm too old for this.

We stayed here 4th of July weekend 2013 for 3 nights using reward points. Typically we stay at another Choice hotel right on the boardwalk but I wanted to try something different further up the boardwalk and with more room. With 3 kids, we spend to spend a little more time in our rooms than I'd like but that's life with children. This hotel certainly met the larger room requirement. With 5 people, we had tons of room and weren't crawling over each other like we were in the comparably-priced room we stay at last year. Room was large (and looked to be newly renovated - in possibly last 24 months) and pretty clean. Bathroom was fairly small but clean. Comes with an in-room safe - just don't let the kids play with it - they're mess up the combination! :) All staff from front desk to housekeeping was friendly. If you don't mind not being right on the boardwalk, this is a good alternative. It's right across the street. Our room faced the ocean - but it's an obstructed view. That said, you can still see the beach somewhat between buildings. Small Tiki bar by the outdoor pool which was nice in the evening. Bar closes at 10pm. Several miniature golf places within walking distance. Free parking is a little tight but there is an overflow lot (also free for hotel guests) next door. However, the overflow lot was is adjacent to another restaurant. Non-hotel guests (obviously had been drinking) hanging in the area. Felt a little uncomfortable leaving the minivan there but didn't feel we were in any real danger. Breakfast was one of the better ones we've had at Choice Hotels. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. The Choice Hotels reservation line screwed up our reservation - I had asked for a sofa sleeper but the sofa was not a sleeper and the hotel had no rollaways remaining (busy 4th of July weekend). This was not the hotel's fault. Good experience and no real complaints but the family decided they liked being right on the beach next to the board walk better. It's more convenient and nicer view even if it is more cramped.

Room Tip: Limited on-site parking especially on weekends. Park in the overflow lot if you have to then check b...

My brother and I were looking for an affordable hotel on the oceanfront for a sort of "staycation". We were very pleased when we found that the Clarion had rooms available. Both of us stayed in one room, which didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would, because the room was quite spacious. I loved the bar, and the bartender (Lenar?) was very pleasant. We also enjoyed the pool. Although our view of the ocean was only slight, it was refreshing. The morning after we checked in, a housekeeper, I believe her name was Misty, knocked on the door and asked if I would be needing full service today, or if I would just like towels. I told her I was sitiing in the room doing some work, but I wouldn't be in the way if she could go ahead and do the full service. She said that wouldn't be a problem and proceeded to gather the dirty towels and trash. She was very friendly and we carried on conversation the entire time she cleaned my room. It was very thurough, and didn't take longer than 15-20 minutes. We also asked the front desk about any good seafood places around, and they were very helpful. Overall , my brother and I enjoyed our stay at the hotel.
