Recent guest reviews

Staff very pleasant, parking good. Great location..

Great view from our private balcony. Room was clean. Staff were nice and helpful. Easy checkin process. Complimentary breakfast was good. Our bathroom toilet did not work properly everytime we flushed it and the shower faucet had a slow drip when turned off. Free wifi was adequate. The indoor pool was a joke - tiny. Probably the size of 2 king beds. I wouldn't mind coming back but would probably pay a little more for a nicer hotel.

The hotel is close to everything like boardwalk, beach and shops. Plus, we had our free breakfast even though they don't have sausage and eggs which we really want. But still, it was ok since we can have coffee even after breakfast. Also, hope they will have at least more than 1 waffle makers. But overall, the hotel is nice and safe.

Reserved through Orbitz, The Hotel could not make changes to the reservation such as, one Adult backed out but, no adjustment could be made to the Bill. Also no other discounts like AAA. Other than that, everything went well.

. The room was nice could use some freshening up nice view of the beach price was right

The room was ok except the pillows were clearly very old (lumpy and hard). The room was not cleaned one day when we left at 11:30am. Upon returning at 6:30pm I called the front desk. I was told rather rudely that I left my do not disturb sign out. Not true - it was in the room. When I checked out the next day the (different) front desk clerk was apologetic and much more professional.

This was a weekend get away for my wife and I, we have stayed at this locations 4 or 5 times now over the last few years. It has been a great place to stay each time we have came down here except for last year in August where it rained everyday we were here. What we like about it is that it is in the center of all activities we like, bars,shops and of course the beach. We always go out to Capt. Georges for dinner and as usual great food.

Beach rite at the back door what else can you ask for

We stayed on the six floor the room was clean but could used some up grades. The elevator broke and that was very bad for my wife asthma and knees. After dark you have to get out car to get someone to open gate so you can in parking deck. Over all not A bad stay for the price I give it a C+.

Upon entering the hotel, the Lobby made me wonder what the rooms would be like. I was surprised how comfortable the room was and love the location. Bedspreads were immediately taken off beds, however, pillows seemed new and comfortable. Parking garage is tight, don't pack anything on the top of your SUV,or you won't make it. Continental Breakfast was included in room price. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

This was our 4th or 5th time staying here and as always the accommodations were great, however this trip the weather was rainy 3 out of 3 days. Went shopping at several stores to pass the days. would still like to come back in late September or early November.I would recommend this place to anyone heading that way.

Right on the beach. Views were fantastic. Everything we needed was in the room already. Free AM breakfast. Only downside, the elevators were slowww but no biggie. Overall, enjoyed our stay very much at Econo Lodge Oceanfront at VB!

Just went for a night with my mother for her birthday and we wanted oceanfront. Best part about the hotel was our balcony facing the ocean.

The location was good, the room was clean, but the hallways felt like a prison.

The motel worked great for my hub and I for a few nights. We were totally stressed and everything worked out great. Beds and bathroom were clean and we were furnished everything to make us comfortable. View at the Oceanfront excellent , close enough to restaurants that we could walk to anywhere we wanted to go. We both agree that we would stay again.

I read the other reviews for this hotel and they were rated at a 2.5. It seems a little unfair as this is a budget friendly hotel. The pool is very small, but I wasn't there for the pool. It's located right on the beach and in the heart of downtown VA Beach. Our room was clean and the only noises we heard were the fighter jets flying overhead, but is there a way to avoid that there? Anyway, the room was decent, the beds were comfy, and the staff was friendly, but the breakfast was a joke. I suggest staying away from the waffles. They were on par with a glue cake. Point is, I was happy with my stay there because I knew I wasn't staying at a swanky high priced hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

This was a wonderful room right on the boardwalk with the ocean in front of you. We sat on the balcony and watched the waves and the people on the boardwalk. It was right in the middle of everything. The staff was wonderful; we arrived early (check in was 3:00 and it was only 1:00) and I called to see if it was okay to park in their lot until check in. They told me to stop over and if the room was ready we could check in early; if not we could park in their garage. The room was ready and exceeded our expectations. It was clean and roomy and even had a microwave and refrigerator; a nice surprise as it was not listed at room confirmation. Would definitely return and recommend this hotel to friends.

It did the job. A nice place to stay for the night with a beautiful ocean view and sunrise. Slightly noisy at times during the day, but don't worry, you will have a peaceful sleep. Everyone from the front desk to maintenance was nice and polite, (maintenance even helped us find a few places around town amd the burst waitin to get to them). All in all it was a great stay, nice people, and so-so breakfast. I would definitely stay here again without having any reservations onhow I would be treated.

The room was clean and comfortable but a little dated. The pool was small but cool. The water cooled ac unit dripped onto the balcony but not so much to be bad. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The on-site parking and weekend security was reassuring in a strange town.

we just stayed for 1 night to go to a concet. it was a nice stay and the ocen view was perfect. the staff was very nice. the pool was tiny though we didn't get in it. the room was clean and didn't sell bad at all for a smoking room. but the fridge leaked alittle. over all it was pleasant.
