Econo Lodge on the Ocean
Ranked #3 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2010

There were four of us on this trip that stayed at the econo lodge on the ocean. We were pleasantly surprised. The location was right on the beach with rooms facing the ocean.
The continental breakfast had a variety of items that were well stocked and kept neat and clean. The staff was helpful but not well informed as to location of restaurants and
information concerning some restaurants in the area. Excellent location. Would stay
here again.

The rooms are ocean front, spick and span clean, balconies to watch a beautiful sunrise, free bike usage to ride the boardwalk, friendly helpful staff, Wi-Fi, reasonable rates and the beach right out your front door!
Thank you Tripadvisor for the hotel reviews as they were accurate in their appraisal of the Econo Lodge on the Ocean. We will recommend this hotel to our family and friends!

After reading other reviews on this location, we decided to stay here instead of a pricer hotel at the end of the boardwalk. We were VERY pleased with the location, beach front balcony, free bike use (love this amenity), friendly English speaking staff and housekeeping was great. Front desk called to see if we needed anything about 20 minutes after checking in. Older hotel, clean w/micro & fridge, coffee maker. Nice pool area for socializing. Keep in mind, no elevator but only 3 stories. Nice continental breakfast and free coffee all day. Yes, we will stay here again.

We stayed at the econo lodge on the ocean for three nights. The room came with a kitchenette, balcony, and the basics for a comfortable stay. It wasn't the hilton, but based on the reviews of the hilton, I was glad to be where we were. Buying food and eating at the hotel freed up some 500.00 in spending money we used towards Busch Gardens in williamsburgh. What a blast! Everything is expensive on Atlantic Ave. If you are not looking for hotel hermit luxury at every turn to critique, then the ECONO LODGE will not disappoint.
The staff was nice. The rooms were clean. The continental breakfast was crap. We had breakfast in the room. Overall spectacular time.

The staff and management were very customer oriented. Rooms were clean and included a balcony. The building is older, but new renovations make it feel very updated. This staff is set on making your stay comfortable and fun. Free bike rentals made for a fun and inexpensive evening. Free continental breakfast was good and plentiful. Nice clean pool and sun decks... I have stayed in many hotels at Virginia Beach and I would definitely return to this hotel for the value and the outstanding service.

An Econo Lodge this nice?? Yesss! Seemingly brand-new carpet in the halls, lovely ceramic tile in the entryway inside the room, right on the boardwalk with balconies overlooking the boardwalk and beach. We have stayed at other Econo Lodges and they are not nearly as nice! The pool was wonderfully heated and very clean. Free bike use. The front desk staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about local places to eat. Every one that they recommended was excellent! We're looking forward to staying here again in September and taking our children for a long weekend!

Stay at this hotel for any trip. Hotel is very affordable with a AMAZING oceanfront view. Nothing fancy just a plain hotel, but it is very clean. Located in a great location, just walk out your door onto boardwalk. Nice and clean heated outdoor pool, breakfast , and the best thing is the private balcony overlooking the ocean.. Do not expect any frills wih this hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful.. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel...
