Great off-off season visit

For a vacation well off of the summer season the service was as good (if not better) than what I've experienced during the peak season. Best of stay: 1) We could watch the sunrise from the balcony of the room and got to see the dolphins playing in the surf. 2) Extremely close to everything you'd want to do in the area - Virginia Aquarium, fishing pier, Cape Henry Lighthouse Negatives: 1) We saw a roach in the room when we first checked in but it was quickly dealt with and we had no further issues. 2) The city was erecting the boardwalk Christmas decorations and we had a 40 foot tall "Ladies Dancing" light display outside the room... NOTE: This isn't a criticism against the hotel in any way, just a heads up to other mid-late November travelers to maybe ask for a room on the 4th floor or higher... Overall? Great experience... If I'm ever in Virginia Beach again the Oceanfront Inn would be a first choice for where to stay...

Great place with ocean view

What a fantastic way to wake up in the morning, with the ocean breeze, sounds of the waves, and the rising sun over the ocean. This was the view from the room I had. The room was clean, staff was friendly, price was right!! I don't know what the prices are during the season, but if you are looking for a place to stay in the off season right on the beach this is perfect!!

You get what you pay for

For the price I should not complain, but the room looked clean from afar, but there were toe nail clippings in the rug and the rug seemed it has never been steamed cleaned. The staff was friendly. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool. The view is amazing.

VB Oceanfront Stay

Everything was perfect except the bed. The mattress is worn out and soft. Other than that all was perfect. The location and staff are great and the price exceptional. A fantastic restaraunt, Neptunes, and indoor pool. Except for the price of their drinks. We ordered a tall, double Beefeater gin and tonic and they charged $7.50 for each shot, $15.00 a drink which is rediculous. Ordered the same thing in other high quality restaraunts in the area and only paid $9.00. Otherwise all was great. Would probably stay there again.

Virginia Beach always has something for everyone. We lived there for 40 yers and do miss it. Had to move to Florida for health reasons or we would still be there.

Mini Family Vacation

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend mini vacation. 2 Adults and 1 6yr old child. The room was your average hotel room. It was clean and we did not have any issues. There is no microwave in the room which was fine since we were only there for a weekend and ate out most of the time. The pool was nice, crowded at times (but what hotel pool isn't). The location is great. Its right on the boardwalk and is in close walking distance to everything VA beach has to offer. Good hotel for the price.
