Residence Inn by Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront
Ranked #33 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Reviewed 2 July 2011

We stayed at the Mariott Residence Inn on Virgina Beach April 11-17 2011. We chose this location as it was dog friendly, ocean front and offered suites.

Pros: Dog Friendly, Ocean Front Suites, Excellent price, On the boardwalk, Wireless internet (slow at times)

Cons: Parking: on site lot is small and tight (Most parking is 4 blocks away; someone damaged my bumper and I didn't know for days), Ice Machine in Lobby only, dated décor, marginally working en suite kitchen - burners on cook top didn't work properly. Bedroom television has issues with turning itself on and off - a bit disconcerting at 2 in the morning to wake up to the TV.

We also had a controversy with our bill at checkout. These things do happen, however I take issue with how it was handled by the Front Office Manager, Ryan Stavella. We were charged for an Adult movie, and it seemed quite an ordeal for Mr Stavella to remove the charge. This argument took place in the lobby and lasted approximately 20 minutes. I found it embarrassing, and a poor example of customer service. Indeed, he only removed the charge after I noted I would be posting a review on Tripadvisor and asked for the name of the general manager.

We would consider staying here again because of the location, value and dog friendliness.

Julius (front desk), bellmen, valet and management (Jessie) are amazing. You will not be disappointed. EVERYONE, yep everyone goes out of their way to make your stay the best you have so far. You have found the best in VB. They should be rated #1 as they are currently. Wow! Julius you impressed us with the call to our cell to let us know our room was ready. No wonder you are always booked. Thanks for a great stay.

Virginia Beach boardwalk area was awesome! Everything was clean and well maintained. Not a lot of shopping or vendors on the beach to mess it up. Shopping and food places are on the street side of the hotels. Sand is groomed nightly, so you don't have to put up with trash on the beach, but not it's not good for shell collecting. We saw dolphins close to the shore! Boogie boards was definitely the best activity. You can get them there at a reasonable price. I would go here again!

We were pleased with our booking and stay at this hotel. The staff really made the extra effort to made things easy for us, even when burdened with kids and beach gear and a car full of stuff. Their parking (complimentary valet) is off-property, which would generally be a real pain, but they cheerfully made it seamless and easy. The morning breakfast buffet is great for families with kids who want it simple, ample, and without fuss. Well done!

Room Tip: HIgher is more quiet! Bring a clip for the drapes.

We stayed at the marriot for 4 nights and we must say it was a pleasure to stay at this hotel. The room we had was king bed with full kitchen...excellent! we have a 7 momth old and this was great as it was very spacious and the room was divided into the kitchen and sitting area seperate from the bedroom and bath. This was great as we could put the baby to sleep and not bother her with the TV or anything else. The hotel offered free hot breakfast every morning which was great and all day coffee. There was also a BBQ night with a few simple dishes and another night the staff prepared chilli and snacks for free. the manager, Ryan Stavella, was great! He was very attentive and friendly. He is running a great hotel and should be praised for his work. This is a great hotel and really great location very central to everything. Great hotel for families.

Hotel is very clean and well kept. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Entire staff was friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to assist without being asked. Breakfasts were very good as were the evening meals. Was worried that the limited on-site parking would be a problem, but on the occasions that the vehicle had to be valet parked, it was brought around very quickly. Only (very) minor problem was wifi in rooms was a little spotty and slow. Over all, a fantastic experience. Would not hesitate to come back here.
