“Great beachy rooms & friendly staff”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

First off, this place is family owned and they are extremely friendly people. They aimed to please. They were constantly trying to give us the best experience possible. They even told us we could continue to stay and use their amenties after we checked out, They were all very sweet to my toddler as well. The coffee shop was great. The rooms have been recently renovated with flat screen tvs mounted on the wall, new carpet, and nice bedding. I love the walls. They are like beachy wood panels. It really feels like a BEACH hotel...not the cookie cutter chain hotel. From the outside, you may not expect much but you quickly learn its a great hotel. Great location. Within walking distance of foods, shops, and the neptune statue. We'll be back.

Seriously, this place inside and out feels like every black and white photo I saw of my grandparents on vacation. I'm glad my wife wasn't with us because she would have taken one look at the outside and said no. Her criteria for hotel ends at the age. I loved everything about this place. It's like staying in a vacation museum. It is old, but it is clean and very well kept. The carpet felt new. The pool was in great shape, warm, clean, and we were by ourselves. The guys at the desk are very nice. The location is excellent. Everything cool along the boardwalk is within a half mile. I also enjoyed seeing all the F-18's coming in from a carrier. It has an old time coffee shop attached to the motel. Plan to try that out tommorrow. The beach and boardwalk are really nice and the view is great.

We only stayed a day but I could see coming back here for an extended trip.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor. Nice view.

Pretty cool to hear our hotel made you feel like Don Draper, Scott! Like you said, there's definitely a lot of charm in an older hotel. What'd you think of the coffee shop, by the way?

We're always thrilled to hear that a guest has enjoyed their stay, and appreciate you sharing this with others. Thanks so much for the stars and come back soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We appreciate the friendly and prompt service that we received when our air conditioning unit went out... We got a brand new unit right away and it worked like a charm! Such a peaceful place and breakfast at the restaurant was delicious with prompt and friendly service as well!! Thanks a bunch to all the staff and we hope to return again!

This is a wonderful, clean family-run small, older hotel. I am so happy to have found it. It reminds me of the hospitality and service of the Virginia Beach hotels of my childhood. The rooms are cozy and simple, except now they have flat screen TV ,internet, good AC and come with free bikes. This place packs a big bang for a very reasonable buck.

If you are looking for a chain- mega hotel with a large marble bathroom and an unbelievably expensive, yet mediocre restaurant, this is not your place. If you want a nice, old style Virginia Beach experience in an attractive, clean oceanfront room with a staff and owners who obviously care about your stay, this is your place at Virginia Beach. It is, for sure, mine now.

Stayed at this hotel in late May. Very clean, very quiet, oceanfront hotel! The price was right, and it was in a quieter location on the northern side of Virginia Beach. No doubt, its an older hotel, but its been well kept/remodeled. Very nice.
Minor nits: The bathroom is very small, but everything works, nice towels, shower, etc. And, they were having wireless internet problems with the access point on the sixth floor (we'd get a wireless connection, but no internet access), I'm sure they may have resolved it by now.

This family owned Resort is run the way that ALL should be. The rooms are very clean, all have baconies to the ocean so you can't go wrong there! The front staff (I dealt with Pam the last time) are all pleasant and very helpful. When you pass a cart in the hallway, you get a freindly, genuine hello from the cleaning staff. The entire staff is always like this. When we travel to Virginia Beach, if we don't stay here then we'll stay home! These people are like family and will make sure that you have a wonderful time while in thier care. Oh, we love to take the bikes (no charge) down the Boardwalk, too.

We went back to VAB this May to celebrate our 1st anniversary. In the process of going to VAB for many years, planning the wedding and staying there since, we have probably tried over 2 dozen hotels in the VA Beach area. Belvedere is by far our favorite. You simply will not find a combination of service, value and convenience anywhere else that compares. They think of the little things...from the best southern hospitality and courtesy to helping you select one of their free use bicycles to having well appointed rooms that are very clean, cozy and quaint. Every room has an amazing ocean view. We particularly enjoyed the walk out patio on our ground level floor this time. Then there is the coffee shop, with some of the very best breakfast food we've tried in the area and even the chefs greet you as you walk in. Great view from the coffee shop too. Reminds me of the family run motels I grew up with, but better. Quite a refreshing change from the costly, impersonal, mega-hotel chains that dominate the VA Beach area. But book early because the rooms fill up.

Room Tip: Realize that all the rooms have smallish bathrooms. If you are one of those types who require a mas...
