Now this is the first time pictures from a spot hasn't matched up to what I saw once there. First of all we checked in and there was an overwhelming smell of curry in the office.

We did not have a reservation- just pulled in. We were able to get a bottom floor room with a kitchenette for $104 a night. We were able to park right in front of our room. It had a full sized refrigerator and the room was already cool! The A/C was very cold! It was extremely clean! The bathroom was...

This is an alright place if you're just staying overnight, other than that, I wouldn't recommend. This is a fairly cheap place one block from the beach, so I understand why it's so popular. The front desk staff isn't very friendly. The rooms are all around dirty (I had to remove a massive clump of hair out of the bath...

We were afraid to even get out of the car when we pulled into the very tiny parking lot for guests. It is a hotel where people live rather than vacation. There were residents sitting outside their rooms and undesirables walking around the outside. We didn't even go into the office and left the property immediately and found another place...

We came in really late after a long drive from another state and the manager, Anup Patel was great about not charging us extra for having to change our dates very last minute and he also let us stay for more than an extra hour after checkout because he saw how tired we were after the trip. The room was...

I don't have anything bad to say, other than the fact that they do not have enough parking spaces for all guests. The hotel was recently updated and is fine for a motel. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and everything worked. I found the wire-threaded security glass on the room window a bit odd (storm-protection, perhaps?). Could use...

I love this hotel and if I ever stay in Virginia Beach again this is where I'll stay! The room was only around $40 online, and it had a kitchenette. It looked like it was recently updated and it was very clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower had plenty of warm water. The pool wasn't open and no...

It's what I expected for the rate but the sheets and towels were dirty and when we called for clean sheets and a towel we were treated with disrespect and rudely by the the manager. I am very easy going but this bothered me.
