“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Starting from the moment I spoke to Patrick on the phone two days before our arrival, the staff at this clean, oceanfront hotel, was so friendly and helpful. They continued to impress me upon our arrival and throughout our three night stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The entire staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. I will definitely return!

Our trip to Virginia Beach was great. The Residence Inn was a great place to stay ocean front. It was very clean and in a great location. It was beside the King Neptune Statue where a lot of activities take place. The staff was very friendly, especially Patrick W. He was kind to all the guest, even the four-legged ones! Our dog, Maggie, really liked him and looked forward to his attention every time we walked by the front desk.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor and had a great view!

I must start by saying I am a dog-lover; but I don't have a dog. The hotel is popular off-season with dog-owners, but we stayed for 6 days and I did not hear a single dog at night. Having stayed at Va Beach many times, I have found that the dogs behave better than many humans. Unless you have allergies, this should not deter you.
The hotel location is perfect, near many good restaurants. The hotel itself is old, and the rooms are smaller than most other Residence Inns we have stayed at. Balconies are small. The breakfast is standard Residence Inn, and the staff kept everything filled. Housekeeping is minimal, with trash cans not emptied each day. Glasses and dishes are minimal, but we always bring disposables. You should too.
Parking is the biggest negative. There is little, even off season. But the valet staff is superb, and always brought the car around (undamaged) within 10 minutes.
So why would we stay again? It's the beach. There are no 4-star hotels here - read other hotel reviews. It was quiet. Location is great. The beds were comfortable. The beach and boardwalk were great. Rates were reasonable and the Dough-Boy pizza across the street was delicious.

Room Tip: Go to the south side to avoid Hilton Garden Inn construction noise.

I am sorry to see that you did not completely enjoy your stay with us. I agree that parking is one of the negatives of our hotel. We try to our best to compensate for the limited parking by offering the complimentary valet service. We hope that you choose us the next time you visit Virginia Beach.

Stayed here for two nights with our two Siberian Huskies. The hotel was beautiful, clean and well equiped. The ocean views were breath taking from the balcony and the full wall window from the bedroom. The hotel staff was very friendly and courteous. The valet parking was a great help. It was a perfect place to take our dogs as the rooms were spacious and had lawn, walkway and beach to take them walking. The staff was very friendly and exceptional, We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all our friends especially dog lovers.

I stayed here while attending a conference, but I am coming back for a vacation! The service was outstanding! The location was right on the beach! Who needs the Caribbean when you can feel relaxed right here in Virginia Beach!!!

Room Tip: This place is dog friendly!! My business partner felt that the lights on the boardwalk bothered him...

Took our two chihuahuas with us on our beach vacation and this was a first rate hotel.We have been across the US and we really think this was our best stay so far at the Marriott.The staff went above and beyond to make our stay the finest.We stayed in a double suite with a full kitchen and it was excellent.The room was very clean and the ammenities were fabulous.Granite counter top,stainless appliances,and great comfortable beds.No noise in the room at night from other guests and a nice free breakfast buffet every morning.We were even suprised by a free social dinner buffet on monday and wednesday evening.The view was to die for on the ocean and so nice on the balcony.Alot to do on the boardwalk,watching the sunrise,playing in the ocean,shopping and eating in the fresh air,all within walking distance.

Just spent 5 nights at this hotel and we couldn't be happier. I was concerned about cleanliness since this was dog friendly, but the rooms were immaculate, comfortable, and well equipped. The view, especially at sunrise, was truly exceptional! Yes, the ac did blow warm air, but, in the early evening this week, it actually warmed the balcony and made it more enjoyable. The staff were all terrific from day one. The breakfast assortment was unexpected, especially being able to make your own belgian waffles (although the fresh fruit and yogurt should have covers on them due to flies from the doors constantly being opened). The location, mid boardwalk, was perfect.......we didn't use our car once! I did miss having a larger pool, however, we knew that going in, and chose this hotel because we were traveling with our dog. Also, the quality of the room towels was a very pleasant surprise. Considering the number of dogs staying at the hotel, it was quiet, clean, and an overall exceptionally pleasant stay. We are already planning on returning again.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor.....best view ever!
