“Great location on the beach for families!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

This hotel has a great location on the beach. We stayed at the hotel for one night over Spring Break. The room was very clean and had an excellent ocean view. It was a typical Hamption Inn room, the only exception being the bed. The mattresses were very firm and we did not have a good night's sleep like we usally do at a Hampton Inn, so that was surprising. Everything else about the room and hotel was great. There is a playground right on the beach by the Hotel, so our kids loved that. In addition, there are lots of places to eat and shop in the area. All in all, it was a good hotel, except for the firm beds.

I chose to stay here based on the good reviews, and the hotel did not dissappoint.

Our room was very clean and comfortable, and we really appreciated how QUIET this hotel was. We never heard any noise from the hallway even though we were directly across from the stairwell. We loved the balcony, and the chairs on it were very comfortable. (We noticed many other beach hotels had cheap plastic chairs on their balconies, and we appreciated that these were better quality!) I loved how there was a board in the lobby with the day's weather, tide and sunrise/sunset times on it. That was very helpful and we appreciated it.

Since we were there on a holiday weekend, the hotel was quite full. Breakfast was a MOB SCENE! The breakfast room was completely full, and we ended up taking our food upstairs to our room both days becuase there were no tables available. The staff was really hustling and kept the food/beverage replenished, but there were just a lot of people in there.

The hotel does offer wi-fi, but only in the lobby area. The only internet connection available in the room was via ethernet cable, which wasn't very helpful for an iPhone. AT&T cell signal is quite weak in the rooms. Had I known this in advance, I would have brought a laptop to check email.

Our only criticism was being walked in on by a member of the housekeeping staff at about 9:30 AM on the day we were checking out. The staff member didn't even knock before they entered the room! Luckily, we had closed the latch on the door, so they didn't get very far into the room, but this is still inexcusable.

Room Tip: Parkign garage provides direct access to rooms on floors 1-5, but you get a better view of the beach...

We stayed during spring break and Easter weekend on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews. The location right on the beach in front of a playground is convenient. The parking structure with direct access into the hotel is also a plus. Every room has an ocean view and a balcony. Breakfast is usual (pretty good) Hampton Inn fare and there is an adjoining restaurant/bar. The rooms are on the small side and staff was having a challenge keeping up with housekeeping. The electronic locks from the stairwell to several floors were out of order, forcing us to wait to use the crowded elevators. Overall, a pretty good stay, but I was left wondering what the other hotels in Virginia Beach were like if this is rated # 7 on Trip Advisor.

Thie hotel was everything you would want in a hotel. The staff was so friendly and nice. They were also ery accomodating. The room as well as the hotel was very clean. I loved that I had a great view of the beach and it even had a pirate ship playground in front of the hotel. The hotel also had a bar and grille, which was very nice and had great drinks. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. I am one pleased guest.

This hotel is a GREAT place to stay in Virginia Beach. That is praise enough, but I have to comment on their awesome support of runners and spectators for the Shamrock Marathon Weekend. The staff opened breakfast early and willingly arranged for late check-outs to accommodate runners and their families. They literally went out of their way to be as helpful as possible. They exceeded my wildest expectations. There is no question where I'm staying from now on.

After looking over many reviews for Virginia Beach hotels, we decided to go with a chain we have come to trust. So many other hotel reviews described "tired" rooms in need of renovation. Upon arrival at the front desk we were greeted by friendly staff who quickly got us checked in. As this was an off-season stay upgrade rooms were available and quickly offered without our need to inquire (benefits of Hilton Honors program). I could imagine that the front desk could be a bit crowded in-season. The entrance, desk, and elevators are a bit close. The entire hotel was clean and not showing much in the way of wear and tear. Price was a little high for off season, but you get what you pay for.

The room was nice with an ocean front balcony and included a fridge, microwave, and DVD player. I have never found an uncomfortable Hampton Inn bed. Rooms have free wired internet connections, but unfortunately does NOT offer WiFi. The room does also not offer an in-room safe, which I really prefer in a beach hotel. Otherwise the room was not lacking of any of the expected amenities.

The free breakfast was in line with what you tend to expect from Hampton Inns. It did include cheese omelets, waffle maker, various bagels and danishes, cereals, and juices.

The only reason I did not give this hotel a 5/5 was it's lack of WiFi which in this day and age should be a standard. I would definitely stay here again and if you could give 1/2 ratings would give them a 4.5/5.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front. Rooms on the higher floors have a bit better views.
