“Great early spring escape to the beach”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

We came to Virginia beach knowing this was not the in-season, but I must say it was a real pleasant surprise. The hotel was superb. The location can't be beat, and the views from the room are spectacular ! You truly feel like you are away from it all lying in bed staring out to the ocean, regardles of what the outside temp is ! We could see the dolphins swim by every morning from our room. You have everything you need with a full kitchen. My son even found that the sofabed was comfortable...not often the case !!

The staff were ALWAYS smiling and helpful, and the breakfast was great. i was concerned that it would be crowded, but it always worked out fine,with fresh food readily availbale. This hotal is very clean, and the pool area included. i would definately recommend staying here...some of the other timeshare places look really nice, but they would lack the personal touch and feel that I think you would get from staying here.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront, but i enjoyed a highlevel room, gives a great overview of everything inclu...

Great location, fabulous ocean view, roomy suite! The staff were friendly and very helpful. When we had a concern about carpet cleaning, they were instantly helpful in rescheduling for the day after we checked out, and they followed through in communicating this with the carpet-cleaning company.
We have a deaf cat who did not mind the dogs barking occasionally, and we enjoyed meeting many of these four-legged guests in the hall and lobby during our stay. We took advantage of the hot tub on colder days, and there is a nice full breakfast served every morning. The breakfast potatoes were delicious!
We stayed here in January for two nights, and loved it so much we came back for five nights this visit. The staff make it a very restful place, and we're looking forward to returning on our next visit to Virginia Beach.

Room Tip: Suites away from elevator are quieter. Parking is limited, but there is free valet parking and it d...

We enjoy the beach in winter and were looking for a change to our normal choices. This was a great choice as Residence Inn's usually are. Location is perfect and while we did not have a dog, we enjoyed all of the dogs staying there. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and anticipate your needs. There are good choices for eating at the beach even at this time of the year. We were there for 6 days and would highly recommend this hotel.

Was looking for pet friendly place to spend my birthday weekend. Just got a new puppy and did not want to kennel her. Residence Inn was awesome. Staff friendly and made us all (including the puppy welcome). Doggie treats on the check in counter. The room was clean, no smells, stains or any critters from previous guest. Full kitchen area, the king size bed very comfortable and clean... Other guest very interactive when see each other pets...we are all pet crazy. The breakfast that came with our room, was more than expected and adequated. Pool area was clean. The workout room small, but hey you are not spending that much time in there and it's a work out area. Has a small laundry area.Coffee available 24hours..and not so strong it makes the hair on your arms stand up. Would stay here again. If any negative...balcony is small and no outdoor pool..these do not out weigh all the positives.. if you need a place that will put out the welcome mat for you and you four legged pal...give this place a try.

I stay at a lot of hotels in a lot of places for a long time. My favorites at Residence Inns and out of all of them this residence inn is my favorite. I travel on business and anywhere from two weeks to four at a time. I was at the Residence Inn at 3217 Atlantic Ave Virginia Beach VA and what made this so special was the people...all the people. From Lillian at the front desk to Sherry from housekeeping, all were terrific! I don't know all their names, but every single person ALWAYS had a smile on their face and a pleasant thought. I truly felt like I was home when I came back at the end of the day. The dark haired young lady at the front desk always and I mean always had a smile on her face, the valet always had my car back out front BEFORE I needed it and the young lady who regularly cleaned my room were all just terrific. The food was always hot and plentiful. The whole facility was spotless.

Let me preface this by saying we LOVED our stay at this hotel and will definitely be back. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were more than well appointed and every room is ocean front. We were traveling as a family and the suites are perfect for just that. The staff is super friendly, always greeting you with a smile and always fast with any request you may have. The breakfast was delicious and full of variety in a brightly sunlit room right on the ocean. The pool was nice and a fun time for my husband and I with our little one.

The only down side is that the hotel does need a bit of a refresh, but ONLY in the furniture aspect of the guest rooms. The bedding was new as was the case goods, but the furniture was showing a bit of wear which is typical for any oceanfront hotel, especially ones that are a suite.

Parking is at a premium but the nice thing is that they offer complimentary valet parking so if you do indeed have to park offsite, they can do it for you.
