Major attractions, including the Neptune statue and the boardwalk, are within walking distance. The on-site seafood restaurant is known for its buffet and gyros. The restaurant is open seasonally. The indoor pool is a year-round indulgence.

Rooms
Whimsical shell patterns and sea-themed artwork create casual flair in standard rooms at the Oceanfront Inn. Private balconies show off a view of the ocean. A work desk, mini refrigerator and lounge chairs are standards amenities, as is free Wi-Fi. Honeymooners can choose the luxurious Penthouse Suite, decorated in yellow, red and blue stripes and with white cottage furniture.

Dining

Neptune's Restaurant prides itself on family-friendly dining and a seasonal seafood buffet. The restaurant's hours vary depending on the season. The authentic gyros go down nicely with panoramic views of the Atlantic at the boardwalk café.

Never Again

The employees here were extremely rude. The room was caked in dust. The entire place smelled like chlorine. The walls are so thin you could hear everything in the adjoining rooms.

Weekend Getaway

Location was awesome...great view of water & holiday lights show. All though it rained and was cold, the view was still perfect. The Neptune Restaraunt / bar was closed do to a private party but it still should of been a way to accommodate the guests as far as room service & food. Elevators were dirty but it may have been because of the weather outside. Other than starving to death & the nasty elevators the stay was absolutely wonderful for the price! I would absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone!!

Value King!

My wife and I needed a Thanksgiving holiday getaway on a tight budget. Oceanfront Inn was perfectly located near our favorite restaurants, spas and theaters, our ocean view was wonderful, we got a free pass to see the Holiday Lights, our beds were very comfortable, and the staff was nice. Being right on the Boardwalk is awesome! I'd go back tomorrow! I regret not trying the indoor heated pool. It looked inviting. I suggest Murphy's Irish pub on 30th street, Soya Bistro (Japanese# on 31st #lunch special is a great value#, the Mama's Italian pasta on 33rd #look for Bit Italy#, the Mayflower Café #Turkish# on 34th, and the Beach Movie Bistro on Laskin Road! The massages on 31st #Salon at 31# and on 67th streets #A.R.E.)are awesome! You can get your Starbucks fix on 31st. And don't forget Ben & Jerry's ice cream all along Atlantic! Consult with the folks at the Love Shack novelty store at 2605 Virginia Beach Blvd to enhance your romantic getaway. We love cycling and jogging the Boardwalk or walking on the beach near the waves. Last year we visited the Aquarium and were truly impressed. The city is pleasantly peaceful this time of year...great for reducing stress.

If you are a smoker not your place even on Balcony

Below is a paste of what I ordered and even though special requests are not always given according to this website you would at least expect to be able to smoke outside the room outside on the balcony. Guest(s) 2 | Night(s): 1 Room description: Oceanfront with private balcony 2 double beds with fridge and coffee maker Special requests: Smoking *Special requests are sent to the hotel but cannot be guaranteed.Provider recommends that you contact the hotel directly to ensure your request can be accommodated. I am not a smoker but my travel partner was so this was frustrating to be threated with a 125.00 fine if you smoke on the balcony. Most smokers are very aware of their habit and would never throw trash over the balcony. I think they are afraid of losing business so they are not going to let you know up front that you can't smoke outside on a balcony. If you are a non-smoker or everyone in your party is then this is the place for you.

Outdated and tired looking

Price was fine for what you get. The hotel has not been updated in half a century judging by the avocado green and harvest gold décor in my room. But the location is fantastic and everything else was perfectly fine. I'd get a room there again, but this time with shades on, assuming the prices stay reasonable in the low season.

So so

Staff seemed tired of being nice to "tourists". Room was outdated. Nice view. Food was below average. Will try somewhere else next time.
