Reviewed 30 August 2011

This hotel was a great choice. We had a great ocean view. Our room was a smoking room and it smelled wonderful. You could not tell it had been a smoker's room. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning for under $11.00 which is what most of the restaurants in the area charged for a breakfast buffet. So it was convenient that the restaurant was in the hotel. The laundry room was outside of our door and it was free. You can purchase detergent from the desk for $1.00. That worked out great for our wet swimsuits and towels. Guest services was nice as well, whatever you requested there was never a long wait. We will definately choose this property again.

Room Tip: Do not get the roll-away bed, very uncomfortable. However guest services did bring another one to th...

The room was great!! Spacious, clean, Comfortable king size bed, view was breath taking!!!! The service was wonderful. Staff was very courteous and pleasant.Good size pool, jaccuzie was great. There was a coffee bar in the mornings which was very impressive!!!! The restaurant attached to the hotel was just excellent. Do pay a visit. Location of the hotel is perfect, right in the middle of everything, shops, restaurants. Overall perfect place to stay, kinda expensive but well worth it. We loved it and will be back!

Made my reservations last minute and the front desk was able to get me in. Diane & Meriam were so friendly and very funny. There should be more clerks like them. They had a lounge on site and was absolutely fantastic. The hotels location is brillant. greatest location ever. Drives right off the interstate. Eating in the restaurant, Chelse was my server and I would recommend everyone to have her!

The night staff girl was the only issue i had. Star was completely rude. Apparently asking her questions about the area was bothering her. On top of that, she rather play on her phone than be at work. She's very unprofessional and never been to a hotel where i experienced such behavior!

We used up four years worth of Priority Club points on a 3-day stay (which we extended to 4 while there), and can't wait to go back next year.
Nothing at all bad to say about the property.
The location could not be any better.
12th floor King, w/ balcony, just the best.

The hotel needs some updating. The overall hotel was not as clean as one would expect. Carpets were dirty, the hallway area had a smell to it, the floor ice machine did not work. The room was basic and could have used refreshing. The bathroom had some stains as did the carpet and walls and the furniture and tv dated amd ac unit somewhat noisy. Housekeeping missed the room one day and the next did not provide all the towels the next day despite notifying the front desk of the missed service. The staff was average at best and did not seem highly knowledgeable regarding the area and did not seem very customer conscientious. For the price I would have expected somewhat better. The bright spot was the location, it was pretty much right in the center of the boardwalk.

A few of my colleagues and myself needed to make last minute plans to attend to business in Virginia Beach and the General Manager (Mary Collins) and the Front Desk Manager (Jimmy Kinnane) went above and beyond to accommodate our needs in obtaining the rooms we needed within a short notice during the peak tourism period. They were extremely helpful and provided us with all of the services we required.

First time staying in a hotel in VB. Great experience, had room on 12th floor overlooking ocean. Just beautiful. Hotel was clean and recently remodeled. Service was good, would highly recommend. Ate at the hotel restaurant and the prices were moderate and the food good, plus can't beat the convenience right off the beach.
