“Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We made our reservation late in the evening. Disappointed that our room was on 2nd floor. When making reservation, I was told the room was on the 2nd floor and oceanfront. Reservation agent failed to mention the additional railing around the roof that extend from the 1st floor below, so in addition to room balcony railing, there is another that obstructs your view. Staff was friendly and helpful with any requests. We found the breakfast to be very good and comparable to other Hamptons we have stayed in. Rooms were clean and spacious. Would return to this Hampton but would request higher floor.

My experience at this hotel was surprising, as I usually see far better quality with Hampton. The lobby was filthy, there were no maps or brochures of the area, no "pantry", vending machines did not work, staff never answered the phone, and pool area was disgusting. We stayed for 3 days and the cleaning staff never left shampoo or toilet paper. We had to call down to the desk, hope for someone to answer the phone, and have it sent up. No bathmats were ever left and too few towels for 2 persons. The pillows on the bed were the size of pillows one would use on their couch!!! How about a normal sized bed pillow, eh? Great view, nice rooms, but hotel staff and service suck. Breakfast area was always dirty and the food was among the worst uncooked mess I have seen.

We stayed here for 4 nights 6/12-6/16/13. Our room was clean and it was nice to have a free hot breakfast. All the staff was extra helpful. The parking is pure hell though. I would have gave it 4 stars if parking would have been better. Who ever designed the parking garage should be shot. Its not big enough for 2 cars to pass. especially in the tight corners. NIGHTMARE is all I can say. Also they do not have an outdoor pool. But we just slipped over to springfields pool. Dont tell anyone. :)

Room Tip: Dont stay on lower levels during the weekend. They have a bar connected and they have a band from 10...

We arrived around noon on Friday, 14 June for our long weekend on the beach. We had our two kids (ages 3 & 4) with us. Our room wasn't ready, but the staff gave us our parking tag for the garage as well as a room key to give us access to the indoor pool. The weather wasn't good so we spent a lot of time in the pool. Once our room was ready the staff gave us a call on our cell phone so we could check in. We requested a room away from the elevator b/c we didn't want to listen to the 'ding' of the elevator bell all day/night long. Thankfully we got a room at the end of the hallway. We didn't ask for it, but we got a handicap accessible room. Their are only a few differences about these rooms, which actually worked out to our advantage. The shower has a handheld showerhead which worked great in cleaning sand out of our kids' hair. We wouldn't have been as successful otherwise. The bathroom also had lots of hooks for towels. What the bathroom didn't have is space to store the towels. The underneath of the bathroom counter is open to allow a wheelchair which means no place to put towels not in use anywhere but the counter. This leaves very little space for other bathroom items.
The downside of our room's location is that you're next to the stairs so you hear the slamming of the door to the stairs on occasion. Not a big deal b/c most Americans are fat and lazy and don't take the stairs.
The one thing we didn't like about the rooms were the pillows. They were feather pillows that immediately went flat as soon as you put your head on it. My wife said next trip she's bringing her own pillow.
The hotel's location is great b/c in front of the hotel on the beach is a playground. It helps break things up if the kids get tired of playing in the water and sand. You can spend some time on the playground. There's also a much larger playground at the very southern end of the beach. It's not far, about 15 minutes with our two kids.
Breakfast was fantastic each morning with lots of options. Breakfast runs from 6-10am, but around 9:30 you're going to have a hard time finding everything. They might stop making biscuits or not refill the gravy, or you have to ask for a spoon for cereal b/c the container is empty.
We had a great experience. This is why you go with known, quality brand hotels.
Best thing about this hotel is that EVERY room is beach front. Everyone has a balcony facing the beach.

Room Tip: The hotel's parking garage goes up to the 5th floor. The hotel has 10 floors. If you get a room...

I got this room for $25 cheaper than listed on the travel.com plus I got $25 gift certificate to spend on souvenirs. The room was really nice and the ocean front view was great. The pool was a little small but at least it was an indoor pool as it rained half of our trip. Over all it was very nice for the amenties.

We stayed in room 911- it was a very large studio room and very comfortable. Great hotel if you want to relax alone, with a loved one, or with the entire family. The room would hold a family of 5 comfortably and there is a swing set out in front of the hotel.
There is a light breakfast in the morning with scrambled eggs, fruit, yogurt, and cereal. There is a restaurant in the same building as the hotel, but separate: http://www.11taphouse.com. There is a WalGreens 14 blocks north http://www.walgreens.com/locator/walgreens-2400-atlantic-ave-virginia-beach-va-23451/id=13109.
Consider staying at this hotel on your next personal or business travel to VA Beach.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor view!

The hotel comes across a little strange when you first pull into town because it has a parking garage in front of about 1/2 of it. I actually missed the turn in the first time and had to turn around. When we did pull in, it's kind of strange to know exactly where to go, especially if all the check-in spots are full as they were for us. We just called the hotel and they explained that you can park out front while you check-in, unload and then park in the parking garage. There was usually a parking attendent on duty but he must have been on a bathroom break when we pulled in. No big deal though...I actually prefer the parking garage being attached to the property as opposed to it being across the street or somewhere else as I've experienced with other ocean-front hotels at other beaches. So once you understand how it works, I actually appreciated the garage being so close.

Check in & out was easy, the rooms are a bit distressed here in there (cracked tiles in the bathroom) but nothing serious. I have stayed in much more expensive hotels on the beach that were worse. We were on the sixth floor, a request that the hotel honored and the views of the ocean were stunning. You have a small balcony you can sit out on and enjoy the oceanfront view. The beds were comfortable and the room tidy and clean. Loved the boardwalk right behind the hotel, right on the beach as well.

Breakfast in the morning was to be expected...nothing special but just enough to passify you until lunch could be had at a much better place. We ate once at the restaurant in the hotel (Tap House) which was ok...a little pricey but what do you expect for convenience. They did have an outside patio area which was nice and with more ocean views.

I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again if I returned to VB. It's right on Atlantic Ave. as well so there are plenty of restaurants and shops to walk to. Didn't have to get my car out once!
