Econo Lodge on the Ocean
Ranked #2 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2011

We asked and got a room right off the beach. We spent most of the trip, when not doing an activity, on the back patio with the door open, watching and listening to the beach and the boardwalk. Each employee I came in contact with were very nice, courteous and very helpful. For example, when we locked ourselves out of the room twice, they were very understanding. The room was very clean and surprisingly quiet at night, even though it was a holiday weekend and area was full of activity. We felt safe since there was always at least 2 employees around everyone was so nice. They were also knowledgable (sp?) about local info requested. Seems family-run and that is a great and rare thing in these times - we do NOT prefer the large, high-priced hotels clogging up the beach.

Room Tip: First floor on the beach!!

can't beat the location to the beach and boardwalk. free bikes were a plus. breakfast was okay. breakfast area was congested. no hot food, but good enough. nice pool. rooms clean. service very friendly. convienient to restaurants and stores. didn't need to take our car out all week. parking is very tight, but they'll have someone to guide you in and out of spaces. don't recomommend taking anything bigger than a standard SUV. bathroom was very small.

I stay in hotels often and have found upkeep and friendly attitudes to be lacking in even the better classes of hotels, so I was hesitant to book at an Econo Lodge. This one surprised me, though. The staff is friendly and helpful and the room cleaner and more modern than most. The place is obviously old, but all the furniture, the bedding, TV and microfridge were all either new or in very good condition and the bathroom (including tile) had obviously been renovated at some point in the last few years.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a place at the beach and will keep it at the top of my list when returning.
The primary negative was the limited parking. Not only is there a one-car limit, but when the place is full, the lot is above capacity. Beyond that, it is an Econo Lodge, so expect a smaller room (though not as small as some I have visited and paid more for) and typical continental breakfast instead of the more elaborate spread a few nicer hotels offer.

I have stayed at this hotel off and on over the years and they have the nicest management and staff in Virginia Beach! The rooms are simple, but functional and very clean! As it is right on the beach, it's great access and you can go for a run anytime.
The pool is handy for families with small children, but I prefer the ocean and the activity there. It is right on the boardwalk, too, which makes it nice for families to bike or walk along to find a fun place for dinner. They have a little coffee bar set up in the early morning which is also very nice.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: clean, functional and bed bug free!

Everyone was helpful and friendly. We were warmly greeted every time we encountered an employee. The refrigerator was already on and functioning when we checked in. The room was cleaned well during our stay. The balcony was a great place to enjoy the ocean. We had a good grocery store within walking distance (Harris Teeter) and lots of shopping within blocks. The beach was fantastic. The only drawback was the one-hour limit on the use of the bikes. We didn't ask if we could keep the bikes out longer than one hour; perhaps the management would have allowed that if we had asked.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room (although most of them are.)

We first came as newlyweds, then kept coming back once a year as a family through the years. We've come to know the owners and staff and feel like home when we return. Safety and cleanliness along with consideration and service are very important to us. Larger hotels have sprung up all around but we appreciate the people we have come to know and service we have come to expect. They have a very small parking lot and, as vechicles have become larger, we are amazed how they manage. They have the parking down to a science! Thanks for everything. See you next year!
