I was a little worried after reading the reviews online...I guess some people are just never happy? The hotel appears a little "outdated" from the outside- but, it's constantly barraged by wind, sand and salt air, it's Virginia Beach, not the Carribean..the exterior structures take a lot of abuse! It's not run-down- just exposed to elements.
The room was very clean and had an amazing view of the Rudee Inlet. The spa tub with the waterfront view is perfect for a couples getaway- especially in the off-season. The room was spacious. The staff is courteous and pleasant, and even helped us with an early check-in. The hotel itself is basic- there are exterior corridors, which, I guess in the summer could be noisy, but, in the winter were quiet. There isn't an in-house restaurant, or breakfast; but, there are plenty of places along the boardwalk to eat within walking distance. We will definitely return.

Our stay was nice. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. When we arrived there was an issue with a dresser drawer that kept coming out into the walkway. It was on a slant so the drawer would slide out. We asked for maintenance to come fix it and he acted like there was nothing he could do...until I suggested some kind of wedge under the front of the dresser...which worked beautifully. The room was nice and cozy but don't expect what you see in the pictures. The pics are NOT of this hotel. Only the outside picture is accurate. Definitely a step down from what was advertised...
Stayed here in the off-season w/ my small dog. We had an oceanfront room so it had a beautiful view, & was within walking distance of restaurants & a few shops that were open. The staff was friendly & the lobby was welcoming & smelled like the ocean. The room itself was clean, had a coffee maker, fridge & microwave. The bathroom didn't have a working fan & the shower curtain had several broken hooks, & the shower knob itself was difficult to turn on & off. It was clean though & the view & location were awesome so I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
We enjoy trips to VA Beach during the off-season when rates are low. This hotel is right on the boardwalk with a great ocean view and good location.
We just happened to be there on an unseasonably warm day/night, so it was very nice to sit out on the balcony--in late December!--and enjoy the lights along the boardwalk and the rising moon.

The hotel was average. Other then getting locked out of our room because the card slider wasn't working it was just an ok place. The manager couldn't get the slider to work so we had to stand outside until a maintenance man arrived to find the batteries died and needed replaced.
The state’s largest city, Virginia Beach is known for the inviting stretches of sand that front the Atlantic Ocean. A three-mile boardwalk hosts runners, bikers, and in-line skaters as they whiz by the shops, restaurants, amusements, and many hotels along the way. The military has a strong presence here, too, with air and naval stations situated throughout Virginia Beach.
