checked out quick than we checked in!

The pictures look nothing like the actual rooms. Maybe when they first built it, but now, they are trashy! We purchased the efficiency room so I could save money by cooking dinner. NOPE! I would not have let my kids eat in that place! The company around the room was loud and abnoxious. Blasting music. To far from Virginia Beach. I would not recommend this place to anyone! Go to an ACTUAL Days Inn that is right on the beach!

Worst place anybody can stay in

Please anyone read this. This place needs to shut down for remodeling. The sink in my room only had hot water, an outlet on the wall had a hole on it wich is a safety issue for children. The rug was ripped and had bumps, and the place smelled like a public bathroom. Definetly my worse experience ever. I will not recommend to my worse enemy.

Not pleased with this hotel

1st my reservations were for a none smoking my 2yr old has asthma yet I was placed in a smoking room. Was told I could get refund b/c they were fully booked, but that wouldnt help me find a hotel for same price. Later that evening they had cancellation and was able to put me in a non smoking but instead of a king size bed I paid for I got a single double. Dead flies in window/window sill.

FAMILY ILLNESS

Location to the airport was excellent ,And close to the beach As a older hotel it needs an upgrade, not necessarily a remodel but every thing was old, the door locks did not have the slide over and catch lock it was a dead bolt lock with a chain. The bathroom toilet had a pink mold ring in it and hair in shower drain from the last person. I was there because my family is ill in the nursing home all I needed at that was a clean bed, which it was. would I stay there again NO!

GROSS

The hotel was basically in the ghetto! The hotel staff was unfriendly. The room was disgusting! As soon as I walked in, I was hit in the face with the smell of cigarette smoke, when it was a non-smoking room. I was ready to leave the next day, but my husband convinced me to stay and make the most of it. If you are prepared to live in filth, then this place is for you. If i had a family, I would NOT stay here!!! Spend a little more money to stay in a clean and safe hotel!

Don't Do it

This hotel is terrible. It was nasty, unkept, fixtures were broken, the pool had been out of commission for sometime and they did not bother to tell anyone. There was alot of rift/raft at the hotel, hard to get sleep when people are yelling and hollering all night. I have stayed in $50 hotels that were alot better taken care and cleaner. This is a dump.
