Overall a great stay. Being able to check in early helped a lot as we drove for a few hours and we just wanted to chill out. Front desk staff was so helpful during all shifts.

My husband and I visited Aug 4 through Aug 9. First, I must say the front desk staff is exceptional, very nice and accomodating. However, that's where the nice ends. The room was boring and uninviting. The bed cover had a corner that looked like a dog had chewed it. Towels with holes were hung in our bath and should... More

I researched several properties on the boardwalk / oceanfront in Virginia beach. Having never been to Virginia beach, I wasn't sure where we wanted to be on the ocean. North end? South end? middle?
