We arrived on a Saturday morning around 11 am after being told that our room was waiting. We had reserved a King room and were given 2 queens. The front desk did upgrade us to King Suite which we appreciated. However, the problem came when we returned from dinner around 8 pm. The nightclub in the hotel had a band...

My husband and I visited in the fall when the crowds have subsided. Great price in the off-season, clean, remodeled, and beautiful view!!! Right on the boardwalk and walking distance to many restaurants.

This was a nice place and the room was fine. I loved the view even though it was raining for the weekend. The room was nice and looked exactly like it did on the website. My husband and I had an event to attend and decided to spend the night in Virginia Beach. What we didn't expect was a band...

Check in was a breeze with Jessica. When we arrived to our room it was much larger than I originally anticipated. We had a first floor pool side suite but still had a gorgeous view of the oceanfront and boardwalk areas. I noticed we did not have shampoo in the bathroom but right on cue, Jessica called to check on...

If you are looking for a place for you and your family to enjoy for a weekend. I assure you this is not the place. Take your money and go elsewhere. The pictures are truly deceiving. I checked in, paid for 3 rooms for me and the family, over the weekend. The suite had no heat. My elderly mom and...

Management response:

Mrs. Midgette, I do apologize that you had a horrible experience at our hotel. I did speak with your family prior to them leaving and extremely apologized for the heat not working in the rooms they were moved to. There were no charges posted to that room for the night of the moves as a gesture of our apology. As...

We stayed in a suite last June. I was excited that this was a renovated hotel but the pictures are misleading. While it did have new beds and furniture, the extremely sloppy finishing details in the construction made you question that it was all cosmetic. Pool towels and bathroom towels supply were extremely limited. The front desk personnel were borderline...

Here's the thing, it's conveniently located, if you can find it. They have no sign at street level, so you have to look UP to find the it. The staff was pleasant. The room was fine, seemed clean enough. The bed was a little hard but wasn't too bad. There really are only two negatives about this place which would...

Next time I will pay an extra 50$/night for another hotel. Elevator was slow as a turtle , there was no parking on site, there were no roll carts available, the pool area was very dated and dirty looking

We stayed here over 2 weeks to help out after the hurricane. Even though we worked long hours. We enjoyed getting off work and going down to the beach. Such a beautiful scenery. We loved waking up to the sound of the ocean and watching the dolphins swim while we were there. If you wanted food and drinks. The bar...
