Guests at the Oceanfront Inn enjoy the seaside setting right from their balconies and the boardwalk cafe. 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.
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.

Would stay again

The room was clean and comfortable. We stayed three nights and requested no housekeeping service our first morning there. We ran out of towels and wash cloths because of this. Housekeeping never made up our beds or emptied the trash but did bring us towels and wash cloths. I don't think they cleaned any day we were there. The double beds were not the most comfortable and we missed our queen sized bed. Parking was limited at the hotel and if you get in late you will have to park across the street in a parking garage. The view was great and the pool was clean. Neptune restaurant was on site and very clean and provided a good breakfast. Other restaurants and shops were within a few blocks. The front desk staff was helpful and all were nice. We'd stay again because of the location. Price was ok for what you get...an oceanfront room/pool/and good location.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The VA beach booklets and coupon savers will help you save $$$. Plan your meals and/or snacks around the coupons and try to use a few. Cut them out and stuff them in a purse or wallet. We could have saved $20-30 if we had made better use of them. Check out Harpoon Larry's on 24th for drink specials.

Great location!

Staff was friendly, rooms were fine and the location was exactly what we wanted - on the beach, and all rooms have ocean view. Indoor pool was very nice, which helped since the days were too cool to swim in the ocean. I'll definitely go back!

Ocean front and center!

This hotel was pretty nice, we went in the off season so price was good for an oceanfront room. They were able to check us in even though we got there at 11 in the morning and got us into a room. Very nice staff. Pool was heated, unfortunately no hot tub.

Murphy's Irish Pub is literally a block away and is a pretty nice spot to grab a beer late at night. There's a smoking section out on the patio but inside it's smoke free and there's usually a live band playing.

clean, great location, good for family

An average to above average hotel in a great locale. Very clean and convenient, but nothing beyond that. Do NOT eat in the hotel restaurant -- I got food poisoning from a burger, but it was late at night.

Oceanfront Night

Short walk down to the strip, oceanfront view, guest services were great, and the beds were really comfortable. Great experience. Will be going back the next time I venture to stay on Atlantic Ave.
