We spent an entire week and had a great time. Our room was clean and what a beautiful view. We enjoyed ourselves from the minute we arrived. The staff was sooo friendly and helpful.. We will definately be back.

Room Tip: high floor was very private

The Ocean Beach Club is a truly fantastic resort located at 3401 Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451 (http://www.vboceanbeachclub.com/). We are a family of four and our boys, six and almost three travel with us. We are a diverse family as I am in my sixties, my wife is half my age, and, of course, our boys tend to look at things differently than either myself or my lovely wife. We selected a two bedroom lock-off suite on the ocean-side of the facility and ended up on the 11th floor. Virginia Beach is our favorite mini-vacation spot on the East Coast. We cruise on Royal Caribbean once or sometimes twice each year, and we always try to visit our favorite city, New Orleans, LA once a year. For any future Virginia Beach vacations, the Ocean Beach Club will be the standard we use to judge any other place we choose to stay. We highly recommend the Ocean Beach Club, part of the Gold Key Resorts, as a wonderful place to stay while in Virginia Beach.
A two bedroom lock-off suite is really a one bedroom suite and an efficiency suite combined. Each suite is complete with kitchen/kitchenette bathroom, and balcony. Each has a queen-sized bed. We had excellent space for our boys to play. The suites can be divided into two separate suites for even more privacy if desired – or the interior doors can be propped open to all free access to the entire suite. The suites were fully furnished and the full-sized refrigerator and fully equipped kitchen in the one-bedroom suite was great – all of the necessary cooking utensils and cookware/dining ware necessary to prepare and eat every meal in the suite if you elect to do so. Also, lots of choices in ordering and bringing food back to the room (either delivery or carry-out) or eating out within walking distance – our very favorite breakfast in Virginia Beach at Pocohantas Pancakes is right across the street less than a block away. With one exception, we found the staff to be highly professional and helpful. Coin-operated laundry facilities are available in several locations throughout the facility, so bring a roll of quarters if you want to do laundry while staying.
I want to share one short story about the quality of the staff. When we first arrived our bellman greeted us like long lost friends and even though we had an unfortunate encounter with someone at the front desk, the bellman significantly mitigated the negative encounter before and after. He was a walking guidebook of details for the best food and activities in the area, and took the time to show us the details of our suite after wrestling with way too much luggage, shopping bags full of supplies, ice chests, etc. for a three-day visit. We saw him daily at one time or another and he always took the time to greet us and ask about the quality of our stay. It was a cool and rainy evening and I walked our boys across the street for ice cream after a carry-in dinner. Our 32 month old dropped his ice cream cone on the driveway, directly in front of the entrance. Our bellman was on duty and witnessed the accident and heart-broken little man. About three minutes after we arrived back in our room, the doorbell rang and there stood our friend the bellman with a new ice cream cone. This was above and beyond service and while we didn’t experience anything else this remarkable, we found most of the other staff seemed to strive for similar levels of service.
I want to mention the swimming pool. We, but especially our boys, love to spend time in the pool. For us choosing to stay in any hotel that does not have a good pool is a problem, and the Ocean Beach Club pool is superb. It has both an indoor and outdoor area and the indoor pool can be closed off during the colder parts of the year or if the weather doesn’t permit use of the outdoor area. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool here, and appreciated the bar staff in the outdoor area too. Also, parking was great. There is a parking garage located right across Atlantic Avenue and guests pay a very reasonable fee to park and have unlimited access to their vehicles with easy entry and exit from the garage.
Because we do mini-vacations at Virginia Beach, we don’t always have the ability to stay exactly where we want to, either because we take advantage of last-minute opportunities, or because our top choices have no vacancies for the dates we are able to visit. Many of the rooms are booked months or even a year in advance, and The Ocean Beach Club is a timeshare facility with many of the suites booked for week-long stays by owners or timeshare exchangers. For all future vacations we will always try to book here first – the best of many wonderful facilities in our opinion.
Virginia Beach is one our top three vacation choices – Royal Caribbean cruises and New Orleans, LA visits being the other two. Considering everything, including location, accommodations, amenities, value and service, The Ocean Beach Club will be our place of choice every time we visit Virginia Beach in the future.

Stayed here with family for 3 days. We had a nice stay , but price was very high per night. The balcony was tiny with no furniture. We brought the living room chairs out there and barely fit.our room on the 13 th floor had a nice view, with the exception of the run down Diplomat hotel next door. We were pleased with our stay , but were constantly bombarded by solicitations for the tours of the resort. After the first few refusals it got very old and intrusive. Nice little resteraunt on premises and very nice staff . Pools were nice and being on the boardwalk a plus. Nice fitness room as well located on 17 th floor.Would have given better rating if not for the pestering of their sales pitch.

I booked a room for one night (week night) at a rate of 339.00. The "ocean view" room I paid for was on the side of the hotel and had a balcony that we were told was too small for patio furniture....standing room only. After calling to request a new room, we were relocated. It took FIVE hours and three phone calls to have our luggage transferred. When we pulled out the sleeper sofa, it had dirty sheets on it still. Last but not least, the pools are too small for the size of the hotel. The pools were overcrowded and there was standing room only. Overall the location is good but the quality is not worth the cost. Service is slow, cleanliness is mediocre, amenities are overcrowded.

Charged my credit card "IN ERROR" the first day I checked in. My bank put a stop on all charges because of the big amount charged to my cc. It is not something you want to deal with on your first day of vacation! The front desk did not even apologize for making this STUPID mistake!
They couldn't even explain to me what happened. Never staying here again!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a 1 bedroom or bigger because the standard room is Super tiny!!!
