Gross!

What a dump! I had reservations and when we pulled up, we left immediately. We looked in the front door and there was riff raff hanging around the front desk chatting it up with the staff. It looks like they let homeless people stay here...GROSS!

Great Choice

After a mix up with the booking and a long drive I was very stressed upon arrival. The staff went above beyond to resolve my frazzled state and my vacation began like it should, relaxed. So you know my background I'm not into 5 star resorts rather just a roof over my head while I vacation and this hotel exceeded my expectations and turned out to be a great value.

Rock n roll VA Beach

It was terrible. I spent 8 hours driving from GA to get there and to find out I was booked for a smoking room. I didn't request a smoking room but a non-smoking room. I was told that the booking agent made the mistake and they would need to fix it. I had to wait over 2 hours for the hotel to call and talk to someone. I was told u could have a non-smoking room but I would have to pay the difference. I told them I wouldn't pay a thing. I only needed a room because I was there for the beach race. The way this was handled was so poor. On top of this, the hotel was actually a motel. The room smelled moldy and the refrigerator didn't work. I was so very disappointed in how the hotel handled this situation. They blamed everything on the booking agent.

You really get what you pay for!

The sheets were dirty and with hairs. They got us new sheets. We booked a king bed, they had overbooked the king bed rooms and put us in a double bed room. The internet did not work most of the time. Everything else was fine.

Weekend getaway

Overall, the hotel stay was nice. Unfortunately, our room was missing an iron and the ironing board was broken. The front desk staff did not have any extra irons available at that time, but were apologetic nonetheless.

The picture of the hotel is deceiving

The front desk reception is polite but cold. The pillows are tiny and worse than cushions. The bath room is very tiny. Every night, there were groups of people partying in the parking lot (back of a truck) or staircase. There seems to be long term rental residents as well.

Meh

We booked this hotel last minute and I read many reviews on how good it was. When we got there the bell for us to ring was not available ,the front desk was rude and couldn't find our reservation , our room smelled like ciggs and there were burn stains on the tub. The shower curtain wasn't long enough n dropped on the floor. The water went from warm to freezing within 3 mins of showering. There was no greeting package that told us about the area or the cable tv Chanel's. It was just blah. Especially for the price. Do not recommend!

not bad for the price

Safe location, friendly and accommodating staff. If you're looking for a place to sleep after enjoying a day at the beach you can't go wrong for the price.. it's not fancy..no comforter on the bed..but a warm blanket placed between two clean sheets.. the AC works well and the bed and room were comfortable. The staff was polite and accommodating and the pool is easily accessible and quite nice. A so so breakfast is included..saves money for some of the nice restaurants and attractions.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

On ocean view visit the thirsty came (probably not for kids). get a pound of huge shrimp steamed or fried for $10.00. This is pretty far down on ocean view drive.. in front of the Ocean View Fishing Pier where you can fish for $8 w/o a license. Also a great place to dine (kids ok). You can watch the sunset or sunrise from this beach!
