“Never Again!!!!!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Naval jets flew over the hotel on practice runs from the Norfolk Naval Air Base every 20 minutes from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the noise was brutal. I wouldn't go back to Virginia Beach again just because of that! It would have been nice to know about the noise in advance. Those fly-bys have been going on for some time according to the valet attendants. It was so loud when the jets flew over that a normal conversation was impossible.

The front desk and consierge were friendly and helpful. Cleaning staff however was so-so. The dust ruffle around the bed was dirty. Garbage cans were undersized and were filthy. Our room smelled of old cigars or cigarettes and we asked for a non-smoking room.

The swimming pool was clean, but it was too cold for a "heated" pool. We tried to use the hot tub, but we had to get out after 5 minutes. The chlorine in there was strong enough to cause sinus irritation (not an exaggeration). Informed the front desk, but nothing happened to resolve the issue.

Bathroom facitilies were too small. The bathroom sink was outside the bathroom near the door. So, after using the toilet you have to open the door before having the opportunity to wash your hands, unless you use the bathtub. A very bad design. The lighting in the sink area was very poor.

The television reception was horrible. This is the age of high definition. Not only was there no Hi-Def, but some stations were just unwatchable because of poor reception.

The sliding door to the balcony was actually quite dangerous. There is a very high flange sticking up at the base of that door just waiting for someone that is distracted, especially someone that had a drink or two, to trip and get seriously injured.

There is one washer and two clothes dryer for the entire hotel, i.e. 8 floors!!!! And, there was no change machine. The front desk would not provide change for more than two dollars. It takes four dollars to do your laundry (wash and dry).

The exercise room is the size of a walkin closet. I was packed with cardio equipment, but no resistance equipment or free weights. I have been in lots of hotels with at least some free weights to workout with, but not here.

For an advertised renovated hotel this place was a disappointment. The balcony furniture was cheap plastic chairs that could be bought at Dollar General for $10.

If you have small children, do not go here. The band plays until 11 (which I liked) and was so loud that you couldn't escape it. If you are OK with this, the place is great. The fitness center is pretty cool, and having a nice restaurant downstairs was a plus. No continental breakfast which was a problem for anyone with a coffee addiction! The pillows were aweful. Their site says they are foam. Total lie. If you have neck issues, bring your own pillow.

The view was wonderful, the rate was very good considering you were right on the ocean! The only things I would have changed was the standard beds and no coffee maker in the room. We have a queen at home and the standard seemed so very cramped. Did not rest well. I don't think there is a room with a bad view, they all faced the Atlantic Ocean. The seafood was tastey, best salmon I have ever had! I would stay here again, but will make sure I ask for a queen size bed. 3 1/2 stars from me !

Nice room great location, but poor service in the restaurant. Should add microwave and refrig, and room service. Add wait staff to shorten meal waiting time.
