Recent guest reviews

This room was beyond our expectations with an ocean facing view, a fully outfitted kitchen, a comfortable bed and plenty of space at a very good rate. Nicely done. Thank you.

CONVENIENT LOCATION. UNCROWDED IN OFF SEASON.CLEAN . FRIENDLY STAFF. GOOD RESTAURANTS IN WALKING DISTANCE. CONSTRUCTION WAS NOISY BUT THAT WAS NOT THE HOTEL'S FAULT.

Could not use pool. It was drained for cleaning There was no water pressure due to filling of pool. Called to front desk and they turned pool water off to get Pressure back.

Nice rooms. Clean and the staff were excellent Sunrise was beautiful every morning. We would stay here again.

Great Location. Great staff. And great rooms overall

The hotel is nice and clean. Staff were friendly. I liked the location, and how big the room was. Take advantage of the full kitchen becuase it will safe you a lot of money from buying food. Check in is too late at 4 pm and check out too early at 10 am, most hotel do check in at 3pm and check out at 11 am. The view from my 11 fl room was great. The room seemed updated, but there seem to be a leak on the roof since I was on the last floor. The pool is not as nice I you see it in the pictures. They will offer you to tour the hotel but it is to try to sale you a time share. I told them at front that I was not interested and I did not get any calls until the check out Day. They offered me a room for $150 to come back. I took it knowing that it is for them to do a presentation to try to sale a time share but they will not tell you that on they own. Also the concierge Troy told me if was for the same hotel but when I called to book the reservation I was told it was for the Ramada Inn. It is not bad for the price, but not what they offered to me and what I was expecting. Ask as many questions as possible and have them write things for you if you get until anything like this. I enjoyed my vacation and as far as the hotel and Virginia Beach, I like it and will go back if I can.

This hotel is perfect for families. They offer activities for adults and kids! The rooms are clean and spacious. I wish the internet was a bit faster.

One of the best places I've stayed in a long time.

This hotel is located near the pier and convenient to numerous activities round about. All the comforts of home, full kitchen, separate sleeping and living areas, balcony and full windows to take in the ocean view. We were put off by the 'time=share' push and sense of obligation at check in. But overall our stay was great experience.

I had higher expectations from staying at another diamond resort. Upon checking into our room my husband and I were disappointed. Due to the pictures online I thought we would be in something completely different. It was tiny, smelled and didn't appear that clean. The ocean view was a small window behind the bed. It was our anniversary weekend so we decided to ask about a better room. So after asking for better accommodations, I was told I would have to pay a 25 dollar a night upgrade fee. Which I did, because the manager at the front desk said our current room was already an upgrade. I can't imagine what the downgrade from what we received was. The one bedroom upgrade was much better. It had beach views from both rooms and a balcony. The kitchen and some of the bathroom were updated. Overall, it's an ok motel but I could have stayed down the road in a nicer and updated resort for less.

The hotel was pretty nice and in a pretty good location.

rooms are clean, spacious, great views. only wish there was a restaurant on premises, but so close to so many its not a big deal

It is on the beach but the bed was supposed to be a queen and it was a full-sized bed. We were told that there were no other rooms available for us to upgrade; however, we know it wasn't true because the parking lot nor beach was full.

I was told that the room would have an ocean view. If you crawled over the bed, you could see the ocean from the small window on the side wall in the small room. The room was clean but the restroom smelled of clorox.

The room was great had everything we needed and met all expectations. The resterant down stairs rock fish was not good at all.

I didn't expect this hotel to be so clean! It was an awesome stay.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. One morning, I was locked out of the room, and the immediately gave me a replacement card. I really appreciated their service. The hotel was clean at all times.

First impressions are everything and we were not disappointed. From check in to check out we were very pleased with hotel staff and their willingness to help. We were very happy with our ocean view queen suite and will definitely choose this hotel in the future.

Great location on the beach, with stuff going on every night on the boardwalk right outside the hotel. Rockfish bar has some great drinks, expensive but great. Overall it was an amazing hotel. Just too expensive to stay more than one night.

The hotel was really nice and clean. The ocean view room was the best.

Thank you very much for your review! We are happy you enjoyed the unit and the view as well as our staff service! As our suites do have full kitchens and separate living areas, they take longer to clean and inspect between guests which is the reason for the check-in/check-out times.
