My fiancee and I decided to head out on an impromptu weekend beach trip. Since the trip was last minute, this was really the only hotel we could find. The rooms itself was nice and spacious, and even though we had a "city view" the corner window in the bedroom actually had a pretty good ocean view. Overall, we really enjoyed the size of the rooms and the location of the hotel - right on the boardwalk and easy access to pretty much anywhere you wanted to go -- we hardly moved our car from the garage the whole weekend.
That being said, the real problem with this place is the housekeeping. When I first walked in the room just felt dirty. Further inspection resulted in finding stains on the bed-sheets and EVERY towel that was in the bathroom. We called housekeeping and they brought up all new towels and sheets...unfortunately each towel that we received had a giant stain on them except for one and the new sheets had an even bigger stain than the original one we received! Luckily we had a bunch of beach towels for the stay and ended up using those as sheets and after our showers. Additionally, one day the housekeeper did not show up at all even when the Do Not Disturb sign was not up -- we had to call down the next day because by 2PM they had not shown up after we returned from the beach.
Finally, the hotel guest services called our room every morning at 8-9AM to try and convince us to take a tour of the hotel and discuss timeshare options. We politely declined the first day, but the calls continued every morning of our stay.
Even with all of that we had a good time - just wish the hotel would focus more on the cleanliness of the hotel. If we ever went back to VA beach, we would probably look to stay elsewhere.
