The temperature rose to the low seventies on February 7-8, and we jumped at a chance for an overnight in Virginia Beach. Traffic from Richmond was light. Booking.com got us a room for $59.00. The hotel was in a great location near the Neptune Statue and had an indoor heated pool and restaurant. Could not beat the price! Hated to...

We recently took a road trip to VA Beach with family, unfortunately we weren't prepared and didn't book a room in advance. Every hotel we stopped at was rude. Then we found Clinton and Brittany who were friendly and funny and made us feel like we were at their home. Rooms were clean and just amazing. Highly recommend this place....

Stayed the weekend. Nice view all beach front balconies. close to the Neptune statue and fine dining as well the gas station and general food. Nicer than it has to be. In the off season there really wasn't anything at all going in the off season. Only thing I would suggest is microwaves in the room. And outside our room...
