We had a really good experience. The location was easy to get to. Parking is limited on the actual property but there is plenty of street parking directly adjacent. Check-in was smooth and the managers were nice, ensuring our needs were met, asking about dietary restrictions, etc. Take time to talk with the managers (Rich and Sharon) - they are very nice and have a lot of knowledge of VA Beach, local attractions, etc. We stayed in the Avamere room, which is the biggest and the only one with an outside private deck, which was nice. This room also has a very nice steam shower with numerous jets and whirlpool tub. Location was about 3 blocks off the beach - it was an easy walk. The location is near many restaurants, so plenty of variety. There is also a school with an athletic field and running track a few blocks away and also a nature reserve/path nearby. Breakfast was very good, with a different gourmet presentation each day. The property is overall quiet compared to hotels along the beach - during the day there are quite a few cars going by and jets from nearby Oceana Naval Air Station are flying from about 8 AM to 11 PM, but you will hear these anywhere in VA Beach. The property is definitely quiet indoors. We experienced none of the issues we have had in almost every other recent hotel stay such as rowdy drunks, loud conversations in halls, unruly kids, etc. The property does allow kids but all the ones we saw were quiet - perhaps because the B&B model attracts quieter clientele in general. The hot tub was very nice. Even when the B&B was fully booked we managed to have the tub to ourselves each time we used it. We had a couple massages - they bring in local masseuses with skills for whatever type of massage you prefer (we did sports massage) - it was very nice. Overall no downsides I can think of other than hot water takes a while to heat up in the bathrooms. Great stay overall! P.S. there are fireworks each WED and SUN at 10 PM on 25th street. You can go to the boardwalk to see them and they can also be seen from the deck of the Avamere room.
