“A good value for Virginia Beach”
Reviewed 26 June 2010

The Oceanfront Inn is an excellent choice for Virginia Beach. It is very well located and is convenient to all the activities. The rooms are simple and clean. All are ocean front view. The restaurant is OK. The staff is excellent and friendly. The hotel is very well run. Parking is good. One drawback are the beds. They are a bit hard and unforgiving. If you are a large person, you might have trouble with the sink counter top in the bathroom. It is very close to the 'landing approach' to the toilet. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a excellent value.

All rooms have ocean views - walk right to the beach, which made it worth the $150/night price. Staff was friendly, and you can walk to almost everything.

Only bad points were the shower was low flow - only a trickle of water which made it hard to wash. No breakfast included and the hotel restaurant was just OK, but they did make my eggs perfectly.

Every year when we go to Virginia Beach, we always stay at Oceanfront Inn. The staff is very friendly and know us by name. It could use some updates but other than that, the place is clean, the housekeeping staff takes very good care of us as we do them. I will always stay here and recommend Oceanfront to everyone. Excellent views of the ocean, very convenient location. Great value and they DO have wireless internet and it works.

This was the BEST vacation ever. Hotel staff, especially young guy at front desk, was very accommodating. He went out of his way to please. Nice hotel, clean room, GREAT view, good price. Could not have asked for anything better! Had so much fun that we will be coming back this weekend!!!

The hotel served its purpose for us as it provided a base for us to travel round and it would be in a good place for you if you want to go clubbing (which we didn't!). The beach is beautiful and the balcony (and picture window) look out over the sea facing east. When I arrived I noticed unpleasant stains on the bedcover. I went downstairs and asked for it to be replaced while we were out. When I returned to the hotel I saw a clean cover had been placed (well, more like dumped) on the bed. I found the reception staff sullen, uninformative and unresponsive. It said in the booklet in the room that mail for posting could be given to reception - I took down some postcards - the staff did not seem to be aware that this service was offered, and he was pretty dismissive. The hotel has lifts, a pool (we didn't use it, but others did) and a restaurant. Breakfast isn't included, but we went to the restaurant for an evening meal, the food was OK but pretty expensive. Waiting staff was pleasant and friendly. All in all an OK hotel for the money, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer than the 3 nights we booked in for. The walls were a bit thin, and I could hear everything going on next door.

I organized a trip with 5 girl friends for a birthday celebration weekend. We selected this hotel for its location, amenities and price. We were not disappointed. Having the fridge in the room was a bonus we enjoyed. We would have liked larger, more comfy beds and a nicer restaurant but sleep was not what we came for and there are many good restaurants in the area to choose from. The staff was attentive and the hotel was clean and well priced. We especially liked being oceanfront and watching the people walking on the boardwalk from our balcony.
