19 Atlantic Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Did not receive a safe in my room when I initially arrived. It was installed the next day. The air-conditioning stopped working and I was told to wait and it would eventually come one. The room was very small and cramp. When you opened the door, the bed was right there. Surprised they used this space for a room. It was like a large closet.

the hotel was clean, everyone there very friendly,

Great location, price reasonable, but very noisy at night from the near by nightclubs

Going to VA Beach on my own, this was an ideal hotel. Great price, cozy room fo a single person (thou would be a little cramped for a couple). My main concerns are in regards to how intuitive some room functions are/aren't. Two examples: 1) The bathroom tub, while having a clear turning handle to get water coming out of the faucet, did not show a clear control for turning on the water through the shower head. I honestly thought perhaps the existing handle had a switch on its end that was broken. It wasn't until I spoke with the front desk that I found out the shower switch was at the end of the faucet nozzle. Not a very intuitive spot to find that control. If 19 Atlantic Hotel is reading this, you need to do one of these two troubleshoots; A) replace faucets that have the above control with faucets that have a more obvious control; if that's not financially/logistically feasable, then B) set up in each bathroom a plaque with a set of illustrated instructions on how to turn on the shower. 2) The air-conditioning system did not allow for any way to customize the coolness of the room. As a result, my room was freezing the first night. I then saw where the ventilation flaps could be closed, so that did make the coolness a little more manageable. But, again, no clear indication of how to exactly do that. Bottom line here is that management needs to know that when people are on vacation, they want to have an easygoing experience, not work to make things comfortable.

We took a chance on this hotel after reading some reviews and I'm so glad we did! The hotel is in a great location just across the street from the beach. We spent our days at the beach and it was a literal 2 minute stroll to the boardwalk. If you are looking for a huge room with all brand new renovations, this is NOT your hotel. If you ARE looking for super clean with a great staff, then you'll be happy here. Fellow customers seemed to range from families to older couples. We were here for a girls' weekend. Our room was an interior room, so there were no windows but we only used our room for sleeping! Turns out, no windows makes it very easy to sleep in! The room was spotless. The bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful, & treated us like old friends by the time we checked out. We couldn't be happier with our stay and will definitely stay here again!

it is clean and nice location to the beach and many hotspots in va beach.

Hotel was wonderful. Staff was amazing. Location was great. Only issue was it is a little noisy on the street view rooms - but not enough to keep me from staying there again. Loved the placed!

Room was small and not clean. Shower light didn't even work and AC was broken as soon as we got there in 100 degree weather. Location was good one, was across the street from the boardwalk and in good location to walk to shops and food. Staff was nice. The place needs to be updated in general but like I said good for one night to sleep only.

4 star minium - Carpets throughout need to be professionally clean or replaced. However, that should not be a reason for not staying there.

Our stay was very nice. Staff very friendly. Just a little walk to oceanfront .

Allthough the hotel is in one of the older buildings at the ocean front I feel that it is one of the nicer hotels at the beach. Also one of the lowest priced. It does not have pool,fitness room or breakfast but if you want a clean low cost place located in the middle of everything just across the street from the beach to lay your head this is the place.

19 Atlantic was a wonderful welcome for the night before I was able to check in to my conference hotel which a few blocks away. The staff was helpful and attentive and the room was lovely and comfortable. I also enjoyed the rooftop deck that with beach view. The rooms are small but if you're there to enjoy the beach and boardwalk and just need a comfortable place for sleeping 19 Atlantic is the perfect place. It's family friendly but would also suit college students there for spring break.

Experience with staff was not good at all and the rooms were filthy ! Bad attitude plus uncleanliness is a NO-NO

Stayed here with family (2 adults, 2 teens) for one night to be close to the beach. It was fine enough. Great price relative to other hotels. Not as nice/stylish as a true boutique hotel, but better than a $400/night chain.

No desk in room. Room was very small and very noisy. AC loud. Something else in room or room below also noisy. Lighting in room poor. Drop ceiling tiles. Tv was bad remote did not work. It was very close to beach and staff was friendly.

great experience, clean, spacious, great place for the price. Beware of interior rooms.

Hotel had a great location on Atlantic Ave in Virginia Beach. Right across street from the beach. Close proximity to lots of restaurants and bars. Hotel was clean and king bed was good. Internet service worked fine. However, the room was quite small. It reminded me of a European hotel. It wasn't a problem, but I'm glad it was only me in the room.

The hotel room is very small as many other commentators have stated. You have a room the size of a utility shed. Contains a queen bed (comfortable), little refrigerator, small tv, table, and bathroom (right next to bed). No wifi on 3rd floor dont know about others. If you're only going to be in your room to sleep this will work for you. Just beware the bathroom is right next to the bed and the walls are VERY thin. You will hear all your partners great sounds after downing that all you can eat sea food buffet. The employees of the hotel were always nice and accommodating during the stay. One important note: Virginia Beach has recruited/paid individuals to play drums, yell, etc while preforming paid acts from 8-11pm - every night(Sunday - Saturday). We had the same marching band and people doing flips/screaming/playing in fire every night. Do not expect to get any sleep until after 11:30 pm. This gets extremely annoying after a long day in the sun while trying to relax on vacation. I won't be coming back to this beach or city ever again.

We had a great room it was clean and the view from our window was street side so we could watch people and also see some of the ocean. Would stay here again and the area was close to the action on the boardwalk. Coffee was always available. good place

If you are in need of a cheap hotel well located for a few days trip for business or studios and you don't have enough money then you stay at this hotel, if not keep on searching. Old building with lack of cleanliness all over, small tiny rooms, nice view though. Very dirty restrooms.
