“If you are looking for a bargain on the beach...”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

After a rather extravagant week in Williamsburg, my husband and I were looking for an inexpensive, clean room on Virginia Beach with an ocean view before catching our flight out of Richmond two days hence.
I saw the Oceanfront Inn was having a special of $54.00 a night. Bingo! We're off! After not seeing the ocean in awhile, we just wanted to be able to gaze at the sea, have a glass of wine and not stick to the carpet! All roooms have an ocean view and face the large boardwalk.
The only negative is that the hallways were somewhat suggestive of a penitentiary...making the room a nice surprise when first walking in!
No pillowtop mattresses here, but the king-sized bed was fine for two nights. Bring your own pillow if you can.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront and have wi-fi

this was a last minute stop, Virginia beach waterfront hotel. Nice people...clean room. decent price. the boardwalk was a great thing to do in the evening, and there was music on the beach in the evening.

Room Tip: get a beach side room. lovely ocean sound and view, day and night.

After being diverted from the Outer Banks due to hurricane Irene, we headed to Virginia Beach. Not wanting to spend alot of money, we stopped at 12 hotels on Oceanfront. This hotel was the least expensive. Location and room were great for the price. Would go again. We did not eat in the hotel. so cannot rate food.

We booked this hotel mainly because it was ocean front and seemed acceptable considering it was cheaper than other hotels ocean front. And we were right.

The room was a good size, non-smoking (even on the balconies -- the hotel itself is non-smoking), lots of pillows and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean but really small (you can hit your arms on the counter when you go pee). The room also has a fridge (don't forget to turn it on if you want to use it !) but there is no safe in the room. TV offers many, many channels.

The rooms offer a great ocean view and compared to the hotel beside, there are no seagulls flying around the balcony due to the "do not feed seagulls" policy, which is nice. In the morning, around 7-8 a.m. you can see the dolphins waving in the ocean.

The hotel has a restaurant. We ate there for lunch and it was good and affordable.

The hotel has a lot of parking, which is included in the price.

We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Our hotel itself was very nice, but the staff was very rude. We asked them to split our room 5 ways between the 5 people in our room and the front desk clerk gave us a huge attitude. It took him 30 minutes to do it and we had to explain it to him several times. They never asked how our stay was and to run one of our credit cards again at the end of our stay. Also the maid only made my bed 3 out of the 8 nights we stayed there and barley cleaned the room. The service at the resturant was very slow, we got our food before our drinks and our food was cold. We had to wait forever for our check as well.
