“Very Nice Place”
Reviewed May 1, 2011

A nice place- good location and clean. Staff was very helpful. Rooms are big and clean. Parking was a little tight at the hotel but there always seemed to be a space. The views are terrific from the decks.

Hotel was need and clean. It did not smell like pets considering there are so many around. The breakfast was good. The staff was very hospitable. Parking was minimal. However they do provide a valet service to park your car for you. Overall this was a good hotel in a great location. We will definitely stay here again. We used our AAA discount and got a good deal on the room.

Dogs everywhere. Halls and elevators stink. Housekeeping is poor. One of the worst Residence Inns I have ever stayed at. Asked for high floor, months in advance, asked for extra towels, had to track down a housekeeper. On Sunday-Easter had to request room be cleaned at 4 pm. Breakfast area was disgusting. Had to walk three blocks to their remote parking to get my car every day for 4 days. One day the parking lot was chained "closed" disagreement witht he other hotel they share it with. Please "do not' walk on the grass between the hotel and beach--every dog in the hotel when to the bathroom here--not 1 sign--beware. And finally I was the bath room floor myself-u would not believe how bad it was!!!!

Best thing about the hotel: you are paying for more than a hotel room! For the price per night, you get the following: a one-bedroom suite with super comfortable king-sized bed and an excellent full window view of the ocean! So you can stay in the bed, while watching Virginia Beach's beautiful sunrise! There is a spacious closet/sink area leading to the bathroom to allow enough space for your regular routines. The suite features a full living room, kitchen area, a balcony with direct view of the ocean, two flat screen TVs, and free WiFi service. I got everything I asked for when I booked directly on marriott.com a couple of weeks before-- the extra pillows and top floor/Penthouse room away from the elevators! Customer service was also outstanding. They even offer free valet parking. I called the hotel 15 minutes before arriving to ensure my requests. The hotel offers full breakfast buffet and the food quality is pretty decent. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the hotel offers FREE themed dinner buffets, though I missed the Wednesday Barbecue Night because I already booked a reservation with nearby Catch 31. The hotel is located in the North Beach area of Virginia Beach (between 33rd and 32nd street, next to Four Sails and Hampton Inn Suites, the Hilton, and the new shopping area)...away from the usual touristy, crowded area of Virginia Beach (17th-24th street). The hotel is right on the boardwalk, a few steps away from the Neptune sculpture, the children's playground in the sand, and Ocean's Park where they offer free nightly entertainment. Catch 31 Seafood Restaurant and Bar is also a few steps away-- offering you top-quality meals and bar items. Things I didn't like-- the lobby area is a bit too cramped, there is only one computer in the common area (I expected bigger space per the picture). I thought the pool and the exercise room were also pretty small. F-16's and F-18 from nearby military bases were also conducting some air exercises so the flyover noise bothered my quiet moments at the beach. What the Residence Inn lacked in lobby area sizes, they more than made up for the room sizes! Great value, excellent customer service, highly recommended! One of the newer hotels in Virgina Beach! Right on the boardwalk. Only a few steps away from bike rentals.

Except for a couple of small quibbles, I can only say favorable things about the Residence Inn.
Quibbles: 1.The bathroom sink was quite slow, and they never really fixed it even though we called it in. 2. The wireless computer connection was slow, and it apparently installed a house program that replaced my homepage with another and screwed up my e-mail (but this might have been m fault, I'm terrible with computers. When I deleted the hotel-installed home page everything returned to normal).

Having said this, I will say that everything else was really excellent and we will certainly return there again. Facilities, service, location, all were great. They has a complimentary manager's special buffet bar two evenings when we were there, and we used it for our evening meal both nights. Pretty good kitchenettes (I do wish there was an oven, not just countertop range and microwave, so I could have broiled fish) allowed us to prepare and eat light meals in the room, an important option for us.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, so not much difference.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE. Couldnt have asked for more. Wonderful & clean room. Perfect amenities. VERY Pet Friendly. Practical and convenient kitchen. Outstanding view and location. Exceptional service, very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast offered downstairs totally exceeded expectations - large variety each morning, fresh and nice to be able to bring up to your room. I will always stay at the Residence Inn when I vacation in Virginia Beach. The staff were wonderful and really added to the trip. Cannot say enough good things about my weekend experience there!

Wanted a pet-friendly close getaway to the beach for Spring Break '11. The Residence Inn was perfect. Front desk staff was super friendly and accomodating. We're used to staying in villa/rental with our 3 yr old pooch. Asked for a high floor away from traffic and "neighbors" opening/shutting doors. Room was great - full kitchen, separate suite for us, sofabed for our son & pup - super clean and fabulous view of the ocean. Our dog loved it! And so did we. Boardwalk and beach are right outside. Beautiful location. Beach is very clean and everyone we ran into was very nice. The hotel's breakfast was fantastic - variety of hot entrees (breakfast burritos, sausage hash, belgian waffles, scrambled eggs, meat, croissants) and fresh fruit; in addition to standard Continental fare. Lots of good restaurants near by - casual, but with excellent fresh cuisine. Loved Rudee's and Catch 31. Would've tried more, but unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. 40 degrees, drizzle, and wind... Just not what we wanted in a vacation. Had to cut our stay short.
