Belvedere Beach Resort
Ranked #9 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We stayed for 5 days. My eight year old sons review- "We have to come back here! It is fabulous!" His favorites: Ice cream (a Popsicle cooler was added to the lobby during our stay), pool, balcony. I loved the balcony overlooking the boardwalk/ocean, the hospitality of the owners and staff, and the convenient location. The hotel provides (heated) showers near the pool to wash off sand after the beach. The rooms are quiet; we rarely heard other guests while we were in our room.

Room: The room was adequate. Lots of room for hangers, with a shelf located above. We had plenty of room for everything we brought (we did leave beach toys and chairs in the car trunk and got them out when we went to the beach). The toilet and tub are separated from the sink/vanity area. As other reviews noted, the toilet/tub area is tiny. There was some dust build up on the exhaust vent in the bathroom-that was the only dust I noticed in the room. The mattresses are a little hard, but we were able to sleep. We enjoyed having 4 pillows on each bed. This is not a fancy hotel, but it is great for families on a budget.

The Belvedere is a family oriented hotel, and we appreciate the owners efforts in providing a nice place for families to stay in Virginia Beach.

We love it when our younger guests (children) give us good reviews. With four kids and five grandkids of our own, we are all about the family vacation at The Belvedere. Thank you and your son for a Great review.

We found the room to be in need of an update, the beds were lumpy and uncomfortable...there was a hanging light almost directly in front of the glass sliding door, you had to walk around the light when you went in or out of the door. We stayed for a week and our bill was $1700, a bit pricey for what we got in return. On the positive side, the staff was nice and the room was clean. As for the diner, I took in my own drink, skim milk, and was told not to bring my drink in again, it was against their rules to bring my own drink, I asked them if they served skim milk and they said they didnot,but I couldn't bring my own drink regardless. I went elsewhere to eat next time.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your input. All of our beds have a cushioned topper that most of our guests seem to prefer. We are glad to remove them upon request. Also, the hanging lamp is centered over the table in each room. If the table is moved the lamp does hang a little low. I have mentioned your concern about the skim milk to our Coffee Shop manager and she agrees to take it under consideration in the future.

It is the best affordable hotel/motel on the beach. I would not normally stay in a motel, but I am glad I did. They have the friendliest staff. The rooms are clean & I liked having extra money to spend instead of spending it on the room.

At the risk of tooting our own horn, we love being referred to as Iconic. We also like to think that The Belvedere is the best value on the north end of Virginia Beach. Thanks so much for bragging for us.

A wonderful experience at the Belvedere Beach Resort. Very comfortable ocean front room. But the most satisfying part was the extremely friendly staff. They go above and beyond. The young men in the lobby helped with our luggage and when they saw we struggled with closing a chair came out to assist. The young lady that kept our room clean was so very sweet. I would definitely consider staying here again!

Pro : service, friendly atmosphere, beach view, price.
Cons : starting to get old, no in-room safe.

The Belvedere is an old middle-class hotel properly maintained. The main strength of this hotel it is staff. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Since this is a small hotel, you almost feel like in a bed and breakfast. Personally, I prefer this kind of relax atmosphere to the more formal one of luxury hotel.
The individual room’s balcony is enjoyable. Every room has a full view on the beach.
The air-conditioning system is very efficient. We even have to lower it because we were freezing inside in the middle of summer.

On the negative:
There is no safe in the rooms. When you go on the beach, you can’t take your passport with you for sure.
The free wifi connection was slow at is best, and intermittent most of the time. Don’t rely too much on it. But, you are in front of the beach, you should not have to rely on the internet too much.
The rooms start to get a little old. Even if they are properly maintained and cleaned with care, it starts to show sign of age.

We appreciate all of the wonderful guests that visit us from Canada and thank you for your review. While we have no safes in the rooms we do have a safe in the office to safeguard valuables. We are working with Cox Communications right now to improve our Wifi system on our upper floors and it shouldn't be an issue going forward. With input like yours we continually try to improve our guests experience and always with Southern Hospitality.

When my family and I came to check in , the woman at the front desk was on her cell phone and held up her finger " like hold on". Sounded like b/f issues . my room smelled like smoke only after house keeper left. So I think she had a smoke break before cleaning our room. Gross. People outside our door were loud and rude. There were hairs on my pillow and in the tub. . sorry but wouldn't come back.
