“Loved it!!!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Booked based in TA reviews and I was not disappointed. It's a charming, clean, and friendly place to stay. The location on the beach is clean and at the quieter end of VB, which was really nice.
The room was very clean and comfy and had the perfect blend of vintage charm and modern updates (bed, linens, bathroom not looking old). Reminded me of places I stayed at in my childhood.
The diner is too cute and the food was really good. We sat and watched the dolphins in the water as we ate our breakfast. I would highly recommend this place if you like a bit of nostalgia but still expect good service. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in VB.

The dolphin show is so much fun from your own balcony or the Coffee Shop window. And nostalgia is the perfect word to describe what we are all about. Thanks for taking a step back in time with us and we hope to see you again soon.

My review is late on my own part but I just wanted to get it in there while thinking of it. We arrived on the 23rd of August and were planning to stay for 10 days. We loved it so much we stated an extra 3 days to relax and enjoy ourselves a little longer. We had a newly re-done efficiency on the 2nd floor and it had everything you would want or need. The oven was brand new, but we never got around to using it as there were so many great places to eat. One great place was actually the on premises diner for breakfast or lunch. They had a coconut cake I could never get enough of. The hotel staff (or family they were most like) were helpful and welcoming and you don't have to go to the Hilton to get the door opened for you. Very nice. Personally I don't drink, but if you do there is a fridge in the lobby to purchase wine and beer. The beach is great and you can have nice walks along the Boardwalk or borrow one of the hotel bikes and ride to the pier for some gift shopping ( the first shop on the right side had some nice higher end stuff, I get a comment every day about a small leather purse I bought) or you can choose a place for lunch or dinner. This hotel is at a quieter part of the beach-which I prefer, but a short walk or bike ride to the Neptunes statue and you will get live music and sometimes other things going on, depending on the day and time of the year. The pool and deck area is nice with tables and umbrellas and is in a good spot to stop at on your way back from the beach. I find the smaller family run place more caring, personal and more relaxing than the huge noisy hotels. The Belvedere is my choice for my next stay in Virginia Beach.

Southern hospitality at the upmost
at this hotel. We totally enjoyed the employees who gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. We were there for just one night. Nothing fancy here, but it was comfortable and clean. It was an easy walk to all the sights. We took a long walk on the boardwalk. They offer free bikes. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate because it was windy and raining in the morning. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean front view from our balcony. Overall, I think it's a reasonably priced hotel that has that 'Mom and Pop' appeal!

I have been staying at The Belvedere for more than 10 years. It is the perfect Va Bch getaway: Small enough not to be overrun by busloads of travelers, yet with amenities one might expect at larger properties. The Belvedere diner is one of the best-kept secrets of Va Bch locals, and any travelers lucky enough to find the perfect breakfast or lunch there. The Belvedere staff is friendly and very helpful -- I don't recall a single instance in which they could not help me find/get what I needed. The rooms are bright and clean; the balcony doors have screens (you don't realize how helpful this is until a pigeon roosts on your railing!); and -- get this -- a bag of salt-water taffy as a welcome gift! The Belvedere is steps from the boardwalk, with great ocean/beach views from every room. I only wish they were open year-around!

Just returned from a four day stay at the Belvedere. The staff is extremely friendly and seem genuinely interested in making sure your stay is a good one. The rooms are clean. Of course the motel is a bit dated, the bathrooms are very small, and the noise from your neighbors can carry through the adjoining doors, but it was easy to overlook these things as we spent 14 hours a day shuttling between the beach and pool. We only used the room to sleep in! The wall mounted flat screen TV's are too small, but again, we weren't there to watch TV. Any issues you have with the hotel will likely vanish when you wake up and open the sun blocking dark drapes...and see the lovely beach beckoning you to come out for a long day of fun in the sun. The free bikes are a huge plus and their beach chair/umbrella rentals are reasonable. I will definitely consider the Belvedere again for any future visits.

We enjoyed our stay at the Belvedere. The upper floor ocean view was great. The room was very clean, nicely themed, and in good shape. Typically, beach-front hotels are worn, which was not the case at the Belvedere. The staff in the office were very helpful. The northern end of VA Beach is more quiet than the other areas, but there were many restaurant options a short walk away. The only negative was the parking places were somewhat tight. It is refreshing to find a family-run hotel among the high rise hotels which surround the Belvedere.

We booked one night and extended our stay another night. The room was very clean, the king size bed was great, the ocean view is perfect, and the staff really did treat us like family. It's really nice to get great service for a reasonable price, and we'll certainly stay there again without hesitation. Thanks to all! John and Suzette

Room Tip: They are all ocean front.
