My boyfriend and I took his son and his son's friend to Virginia Beach for a small vacation. None of us had been to the beach in a very long time, so we were super excited. Most of the hotels we called were either booked or out of our price range. There was a Travelodge ON the beach, but when I called to ask questions, the front desk person wasn't very friendly, so I called the second Travelodge on Atlantic Avenue. The man at the front desk sounded very nice, and the price was fairly reasonable, so we decided to stay there for 4 nights. Basically we had a roof over our heads and had fun at the beach, but I would never stay there again, nor would I recommend it. Our room was pretty bad... the curtain had a huge hole in it, our bedspread had a cigarette burn, the cabinet that held the fridge was damaged and the fridge rocked where it sat, the mini blind in the bathroom was missing slats and when we pulled the cord to look out the window at the lovely view of the alley, the blind fell to the floor and broke. Also, the room safe didn't work and something was wrong with the ceiling above the tub... it was squishy and pushed up when you touched it. I read another review where someone mentioned folks hanging around outside. This was true as well. Two men were sitting on the outside steps one evening, blocking my way. I had to excuse myself and walk between them and felt very uncomfortable, especially since they made comments after I walked past them. I'm not even sure they were staying there. Because of this and some other factors, I did not feel safe at night. The pool was in the middle of the parking lot and the ice machine was in an area where I went one night and was somewhat afraid being down there alone. When things were mentioned to the man at the front desk about the broken blind, etc, there were no apologies, just things like "I will tell the maintenance person." I would strongly advise staying elsewhere. Thanks for reading!
