We were in town to getaway and bring in the New Year. The hotel is in a great location. It is an older unit, however, there have been some updating in the rooms. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We definitely will stay here again.

This was our first stay at the Econolodge. Have been traveling to Va Beach since 1990 and usually stay at the Holiday Inn. I had read reviews and knew the parking would be tight. Unfortunately our car ended up with a dent in one of the passenger doors caused by the car sitting

Thank you very much for your review of your experience staying with us. We apologize for the damage you sustained to your vehicle while parked. While our parking lot is very tight, there is no reason for a vehicle to be damaged as it requires a good bit of force to actually ding another vehicle regardless of the size of the space. Unfortunately, people in every parking lot in the country seem to forget common courtesy and respect for others property. We hope the damage has been repaired and again apologize. Your balcony door lock was just a fiasco. We didn't want to continue to intrude on your stay so rather than reinstall the proper handset our maintenance staff decided just to let you keep the key so he could get out of your way. Overall it seems that you were able to enjoy your visit to the beach and we are grateful for the patience you showed us. We do hope that you might give us another try on your next visit. Thank you again!

We checked in with 2 super employees. The ladies name on the check in was D. Tobin. She was so accommodating and a joy to talk to. There was also a male employee that was working with her and he went to the parking lot and instructed my husband on were to park. He even

Our room on first floor
When I was there in October I was initially assigned a ground floor room when I checked in but the front desk staff was able to move me to a second floor room since one was available. Bikes were on a first come first serve basis. They are locked so you do have to check with the front desk to check one out. Bring your own helmet. Staff were very helpful.

It is right on the Boardwalk. Ground floor rooms walk right out onto the boardwalk, balconies all overlook the boardwalk. I am not a smoker but I did see others smoking outside the rooms.

We do still offer our guests free use of our bicycles. Guests can book as far as 1 year in advance, however a couple of months in advance generally assures you of room availability. Rates for next year (2018) are still being evaluated.
