“Great price, Great staff, Great location, Great pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

We had a great time, the location is great we were only two block from the beach. The staff is very helpful and really nice. It felt like a home instead of a motel. The rooms need more work, just the carpet and chairs need cleaning. Over all it was great. The pool was very clean at all time. I would surely stay again. We were so close to everything. I loved it. Make sure u bring your own pots and pans for the kichten in your room.

Me and my friends stayed there couple times. We had fun. Place have big outdoor pool and very close to the beach. Most of our time we spend outside, we don't need fancy room. It was nice room with everything we need.

In the first room they put me in, the heat barely worked. I told the front desk the next morning. Nothing was done when i came back in the evening. I called again, and they kept dragging their feet. I finally was moved to another room after two nights of freezing. The other room was somewhat better, but not by much. I found rat droppings on the refrigerator and a roach in the kitchen. The whole room just smelled awful. Finally, you have to give them several hours notice before checking out to get your security deposit back because they keep " your" $50 locked in a safe. I dont care what bills i get back, just give me my money and let me go. I had to drive back that evening to get my deposit back. It was a perfect dive for hookers and low lifes.

MotelManagement, Owner at Cerca Del Mar, responded to this review, 10 June 2013
We are very sorry this guest did not enjoy his stay. Our building has a central heating system… heat cannot be “out” in an individual room. The in-room thermostats control air flow. If a guest is unhappy with the temperature in his or her room, and no readily repairable problem is found with the thermostat, our policy is to relocate the guest to a different room, where he or she will be more comfortable. As the guest indicated, this is what occurred during his stay and he was moved to a warmer room. We strive to maintain the cleanliness of our rooms and proactively and reactively address all hygiene issues. Per the guest’s account, he did not bring his housekeeping issues to our attention. Regardless of their perceived severity, we had no opportunity to make things right. It is perplexing and troubling to hear about them after the fact. The only guests who are charged a $50 security deposit are those renting on a weekly basis during the off season. These guests sign a rental agreement upon check-in. Included in the agreement is the following: “A 24 hour notice is required for deposit refund.” We’re sorry that the guest did not read the rental agreement in its entirety before signing it and that this caused him some inconvenience. This policy is in place to limit the amount of cash in our till, for the safety of our desk clerks. Again, we’re very sorry this guest had an unpleasant experience and will work hard to ensure all future experiences are positive ones.

Had an awesome time at the Circa over the summer. Staff was more than friendly and rooms were cozy. Great location! Whole set up was pretty sweet with the pool right in the center of the room. Had a few elevator problems during our stay, but the staff dealt with it appropriately. Would definitely go here again.

I basically lived in the Cerca Del Mar for 2 months as I worked locally in VB for the summer, and it was a very accommodating and fun place to stay. The lively atmosphere, friendly staff (who were always around 24/7) and close proximity to the beach/local and familiar eateries helped make my summer. The pool cools off on the hot days and is a better option on the overcast days.

While some conditions were in need of improvement (such as a water leak and dryer issue), the staff are VERY hospitable (and the dryer was replaced by the end of our stay). Whether desk, housekeeping, or maintenance, everyone who works at the Cerca would greet you and ask how you were that day.

They are also welcoming and accommodating. I stayed with 60+ friends on a Cru Summer Project for the summer here, and their assistance allowed for smooth move-ins and departures. The parking spaces are convenient, and the pool is inviting after getting off of work.

I agree with a previous comment that the rooms could hold six if needed: we tested this true when visiting neighbors and preparing dinners with them. Despite room issues (such as our electronic door keys not working once), the staff yet again more than made up for it in service. Dennis from maintenance even went out of his way to fix the smoke detector when he came for the door upon noticing the need (and this was after a day of replacing door batteries).

Whether it was Dennis, Ruby from housekeeping, Jim, or anyone else who worked there, they are all people whom would give me reason to revisit if I were ever in the area!

I was in VA Beach this summer and loved staying at the Cerca! The staff was all so very friendly and if there was any small problem they were happy to help! It was a very family friendly place with a great location! It is a great value and the pool is wonderful on those hot summer days. I would definitely stay here again and recommend that you do too!
