“Great birthday weekend!”
Reviewed 7 November 2010

I happened to mention upon check-in that I had recently celebrated a birthday, and that evening the management and staff handed me a lovely birthday card! This level of thoughtfulness is representative of the quality and service provided by the staff. This was my first stay at this brand of hotel, but it certainly won't be my last.
Rooms were clean, beautiful view, free breakfast and if it was warmer I may have taken them up on the free bicycle rental.
All in all I had a wonderful stay. Consider this hotel on YOUR next birthday! :)

I'm not sure I have stayed at an Econo Lodge prior to this one. I didn't want to spend a fortune, wanted a good location, and a clean room. I achieved that with this hotel. The staff are friendly and accommodating, The room was clean, and although there was a soccer tournament happening in the area, and kids galore, we had no problems with noise around us. I would not hesitate to visit this hotel again.

We stayed here 10/9/10 to 10/12/10
Clean, quiet, no problems.
I took the gound floor so we wouldn't have to carry suitcases up the steps!
You can go right out your door across the grass to the boardwalk & beach.
I would stay here again.

Pleasant from the moment you arrive. Front desk staff helpful. No frills room-clean and well maintained. Free breakfast-continental and well stocked. Cleaning staff -prompt with requests. Pool looked clean and maintained. Had free bicycle use, didn't use this opportunity ourselves. Refig, microwave in good working order. Balconey view-excellent!

Modestly priced but excellent value-added and all in all a superior operation! Staff offers high quality gracious service, attention, patience, cordiality and good will. They're highly competent, highly motivated and extremely polite, fully interested in making your stay entirely enjoyable.

Rooms are pleasant if not a bit dated (they're in the process of renovation). Beds are fine. Microwave is standard but the larger fridge is great for storing a bunch of snacks, drinks, sandwiches or whatever which require refrigeration.

Excellent ocean views from the balconies, although the plastic furniture needs updating. Large heated pool is fine as are lower and upper decks (with convenient picnic tables) for sunbathing.

Continental breakfast is also fine --bagels, cream cheese, juice, cold cereals, etc (no eggs or waffles, but the coffee is great) and if you need a more substantive breakfast, try Angelo's next door. (Avoid Angelo's for anything other than breakfast...dinner service is slow and indifferent, as is the food.)

Leonard and Art, the managers, are experienced hoteliers and a have in-depth knowledge of the area and its venues. Other desk staff are also helpful. Try Tau Togs (a short walk) for seafood. The Jewish Mother (also a short walk) for some of the best corned beef or brisket sandwiches west of the Hudson and south of DC, Rockafeller's (on Rudy's Inlet) and Ammo's (on the pier) for Greek fare as authentic as what one finds in Athens.

The 27th street hotel location is a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown, which was fine for us...but there's still plenty of "action" for the kids. For older "kids" try the Hilton bar and restaurant., just up the street from the Econo Lodge. Additionally, the Hilton has an upscale reservations only business dress code casual restaurant which serves steaks on a par with New York's best and service to match. With wine and tip, expect to pay a minimum of $225+, for two... which is really not bad by comparitive standards. (Tau Togs, although seafood oriented, serves excellent steaks for much lower prices as well.)

If you're looking for a large fancy hotel, this is not the one for you. But, if you're looking for a clean and friendly hotel, I highly recommend this one. My family stayed there Sept. 17-19th 2010. I booked with this hotel solely on the recommendations from Tripadvisor.com. I was pleasantly surprised. I will surely stay there again. Just beware of one thing...the parking lot only has room for 1 car per room. They are really packed in, but there was always an employee assisting with parking, which was invaluable for a parking lot of this size.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Virginia Beach. We stayed in April and although it was a little chilly for the beach, this hotel really made our trip with the bicycles! Also, the pool was kept clean and warm, so we still got to swim. The staff was SO FRIENDLY! Everyone we encountered was more than willing to help us with anything we needed. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 on the rooms is because the walls are a little thin, but to be right on the beach and have a wonderful private balcony overlooking the Atlantic (which was wonderful for breakfasts watching the sunrise) is great. A++++!
