Me and my girlfriend had a pleasant stay here Valentine's Day night. Great sized suite and all the amenities we could ask for. The bed was fine when we first went to but but woke up multiple times throughout the night because we kept sinking to the middle. Over all great stay but I have seen other reviews about this...

Earlier in the month, I stayed here to avoid driving to and from work during the snow. I stayed for 4 days in a King suite, and it was great!

I drove in from Chicago for family emergency. I went to the mixer nights. Young man Robert (f&B) was amazing. White Chicken chili, awesome. Meatballs w/marinara and pasta salad, awesome. His whole demeanor was great. Very friendly.

Room was clean and bed was comfy. However, the pool was freezing and they were out of towels. Had to ask for towels and I told them how cold the pool was. They said they would send someone. My 7 year old really wanted to swim after being in a car for so long. She finally braved the cold water....

Thank You for writing a review of your experience, but I am sadden by the comments that came out of that experience I will have our engineering team check the heater in the pool and spa area to ensure proper working conditions are met when the next guest goes to the pool.

My family of 5 stayed at this location during the first Saturday in November 2016. It was during the winter months and my 3 kids wanted to play and swim an indoor heated pool.

We stayed here for 3 nights when my cousin got married in Downtown Norfolk. When we arrived check-in was smooth. We got in the room and I thought there was a slightly "sour" smell in the room, but my parents couldn't smell it. There were not enough towels (only 3 for a room meant to accommodate 4) and we called...

First impression was not wonderful. We arrived after midnight in rainy weather and the cover over the entryway did not extend over the car, so we got wet just getting to the door.
