“A "Perfect Storm" of Disappointment”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Maybe it was the fact that our room was directly across from the elevators. Or maybe that the hotel was hosting youth football teams in town for a championship, and the kids and their parents laughed, shouted and ran in the halls until well past midnight. It might have been that our "accessible" room (all that was available) was quite spartan and the switch for the entry light was broken off. Since the adjacent (and rather large) closet was also without a light, going in to find our clothes became a bit of a challenge. Or was it the accessible bathroom with no place for clean towels unless they were stacked up on the vanity, and the broken toilet roll holder with the roll impaled on one prong. I guess it was all of this that made for a disappointing visit to a hotel that bore the brand that I most often visit. I know you can't control guest behavior, and concessions had to be made in the building design that did not allow for elevator lobbies, but it's hard to forgive obvious shortcomings in maintenance. I love Hampton Inns. This one… not so much.

The service was great and they gave us a later check out time because they knew it was my birthday that night. Breakfast was good and pool was clean. Room was clean and had no issues. I will definitely be back!!

We were able to check in at 10AM the day of our arrival. This worked out great since I had an appointment at 12:30, 20 miles away and we needed to unpack to get ready for a meeting. Every one of the staff from front desk to cleaning staff greeted us and hoped we were going to enjoy our stay. The final night there was a teenage softball team staying at the hotel and they were a little noisy and running in halls. Breakfast was very good and a great selection of items to eat. I always stay here when I come down for fall conferences.

We were there for a softball tournament. Great location, great price. Hampton Inn is always my first choice and this is one of the better ones I have stayed at. The bar attached to the hotel was a little loud at times but we joined in on the fun. The hotel was very crowded but the staff was always very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Would definitely stay again.

This is a decent hotel. But you need to be very selective of where you ask for your room to be and if there are any groups of young people, in my case a softball team because you will not get a good nights rest.

Excellent Stay. Worth the trip. Not just a summer rental.. 200 characters minimum for the review??? This should be the choice of the reviewer not the standard of Trip advisor so this is BS!!!! So the remainder of this will just be the BLATHER of a non content. This has nothing to do with the hotel or the service. It is a peaceful protest against the 200 character minimum of the Trip advisor. So, as i continue to ramble on and waste your time and mine consider your use of Trip Advisor and/or expand your mind! Take a chance, travel on a Whim... Love like there is no Tomorrow (there may not be) Dance like no one is watching Sample the local food and spirits Remember; Don't take life seriously, You are NOT going to get out of it Alive!! That should about cover it:)

Hampton Inn in Virginia Beach it's a great Hotel. Extra clean, rooms are very comfortable, amazing oceanfront view . I am in the army, but let me tell you that navy planes flying by is an amazing sensation. Great breakfast everything was fresh great to start the day. Staff was very helpful, they are very knowledgeable of the area, very friendly it's really a pleasure to deal with them. I will say they care about there costumers.
