“Very Nice and Renovated Hotel on the ocean.”
Reviewed 8 July 2009

My stay at the just newly renovated Holiday inn that now an express was very nice. The view of the ocean was beautiful and you get the sunrise in the morning which is just so nice to watch. The room was pretty spacious and nice with the LG flat screen in it. The doors are very hard to open and close, both the room door and balcony door. The balcony was a fairly good size and they give you two chairs to sit on. The air conditioners were part of the renovations i don't think but mine was very nice and cold. The pool is very small and the fitness center is small too but you do have the ocean and board walk only feet from the hotel. I guess before the renovations there was a restaurant in the hotel but there is no longer one and the breakfast area took up that area. Breakfast there is very good but you do have to get there earlier because the food goes fast and the employees have to refill it every minute and the line gets long!

I dont know what this hotel was like before the renovation, but we still had some problems with our room. The entry door didnt open easily, you had to be pretty strong to push it open. The balcony door handle was broken at the top and hanging by a small screw. The air conditioner unit outside on the small balcony was extreemly loud when running, so much so that I couldnt sit out there unless I turned it off.
I was concerned about the cleanliness after reading some reviews, and sure enough, we found a dirty plate in the microwave upon arrival. We only saw male cleaning crews and I don't think they start until pretty late in the morning, so if you don't flag them down in the hallway you'll wait quite a while for your room to be clean.
The breakfast buffet was free, and a good value, if it remains stocked. Our last day there, Tuesday, June 30th, just about everything was gone. No bagles, eggs, sausage, but they did have very good muffins and cinnamon rolls.
Parking is definitely an issue. The overflow lots are either across the street, or one block over. We came back to the hotel around 10pm and nothing was available except the very far lot. Not only would I not trust my car there, I'd be afraid of walking back from there alone! It was very dark, and we were told the "sherrif" patrols occasionally, but they are not responsible for any theft or damage.
As it happens, our stay was free using priority club points. They were nice enough to upgrade us to a suite, so I have to stay the hotel staff was friendly enough. Overall, I would not come back here, there are too many other choices.

This recently renovated hotel lives up to the Holiday Inn Express brand. I traveled to Va Beach for business, and was hesitant to stay on the beach thinking it might be too rowdy. Instead, hotel was quiet, comfortable and provided a pleasant stay. I liked that all rooms faced the ocean, with a private little balcony. Conveniently located with plenty to see and do within walking distance. Morning continental breakfast was good enough to get the day started. Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean, and a/c unit was quiet.

Downside: Parking was tight and the main lot was often full, but maybe thats just par for the area. Business center did not appear to be set up yet, but I didnt ask about it. Room tv's were the 27 inch variety, when other hotels are going to wide screen flat panels. Swimming pool is indoor only and small. But hey, you've got a huge pool with real waves only 50 yards away!

We arrived on Friday, June 20th. The room looked clean until we got to the bathroom. The tub was filthy. There were dirty rings around the tub. And the toilet was not clean. I had to clean the bathroom myself. We complained to the front desk for us to be told "Let's see if they clean the bathroom tomorrow". On Saturday evening when we returned to the room, housekeeping only emptied one trash can and left the other overflowing with trash. We had to request washcloths and hand towels because they did not restock with enough in the room. On Saturday night, we ran out of toilet paper and spoke to a housekeeping employee that we saw in the hall. She stated that she would bring some back. We also spoke to the front desk employee and stated that we needed toilet paper because my son was on the toilet and ran out. We decided to take some toilet paper from the public restroom because they were not trying to bring any in a timely fashion. The toilet paper finally arrived 1 hour later. Also, the hotel only allows 1 parking space per room. If additional space is needed, there is a parking lot around the corner that they will park your vehicle in (of course, don't forget the tip). Therefore, this was our first stay and will be our last.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon and loved everything about it. The staff, especially Chris, were the most accomodating, pleasant, and genuinely kind people we have had the pleasure of meeting in quite some time. Although the hotel was undergoing some renovations, we were not affected by it. Even the people working on the renovations were pleasant and polite. The hot breakfast in the morning was always well stocked and nicely prepared. The pool was clean and well maintained. Our room provided an excellent view of the ocean, was clean, comfortable and everything we expected it to be and more. If we had to say anything negative about our stay, we would not be able to. In fact, we are currently planning another trip and want to stay here again. We will recommend this hotel to anyone we know planning a stay in Virginia Beach. Tim and Denise Adkins

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Surfside in VA Beach last week (APril 2009 during SPRING BREAK) We chose that hotel for it's ocean front location and the restaurant and pool.
We did not know that the pool would be closed for renovations until after we had checked in. There was also no restaurant on site due to the construction going on. Contractors everywhere.
The location is great...however we were unable to use the pool and hottub which was really a bummer. My son loves to be in the water but could not be. The ocean was way too cold (which we had expected and that is why we chose a hotel with an indoor pool!) and the weather was rainy and cold. I knwo that the weather is beyond their control but again...that is why we picked a hotel with an indoor pool.
The views from the room were wonderful. It definitely would be a great location in warmer weather and once it has been renovated.
The staff was exceptional. They were all very friendly (the contractors, too) and helpful. It's just too bad that we did not know about the renovations beforehand. We would not have spent all that money to stay there for a week.

Stayed at this hotel Oct/08. Hotel was in a good location and in pretty good condition considering its location. Staff was exceptional. Read previous reviews and found them to be very accurate. Hotel could be in better condition but the staff more than makes up for it. Talked with a girl at the desk and it seems they will be undergoing renovations soon. This will be my hotel of choice in Virginia Beach, especially if they have gone under renovation.
