The room was nice, balcony was a definite plus, pool was nice as well as outdoor area, the jacuzzi was good but there were no jets. The tub in the room was jetted however, the jets looked disgusting like they haven’t been thoroughly cleaned in a very long time. The room was very nice, just be aware that housekeeping doesn’t come and also know that the walls are VERY thin. The location was wonderful, the view of the beach was lovely, and the kitchen was a definite plus for making breakfast! Despite the cons, tight parking, and the call to participate in a time share open house the property was enjoyable would probably stay again.

One working washer and dryer for entire building. Hot tub pump not working. Mold on swimming floor.

Dated property that wasn't very clean. The counters and floor were dirty and air conditioning needed fixed when we got there. The balcony door didn't lock normally and a different lock needed to be used which didn't let the door shut completely. Maintenance was prompt fixing the air conditioning and was very friendly. Some miscommunication regarding pool reservations (required because of COVID). The pool was not very big and jacuzzi wasn't able to be used. Nice pool deck area though. The view from the balcony was fantastic and the hotel is in an excellent location. Overall, it was definitely overpriced and rather disappointing.

Nice hotel, spacious rooms but needs some updating. Hotel is located almost in the middle of the boardwalk so you can easily walk or bike ride along the boardwalk or street for everything. Beach is clean and well kept. Had a very nice experience here. Would definitely return.

The air conditioner was very clunky and loud. The pictures look nicer than it really is. Location is pretty good and there's free parking. The bar downstairs is way overpriced. No direct access to beach - must go out the side entrance or through the bar which is inconvenient.

Very friendly customer service. Staff was very friendly.

Nice and clean with great staff. I would recommend this place.

Bedroom had ocean view which was different from other hotels.

It needs a up date on the property out dated an not as big as it looks on the site

room was nice, clean. would have liked a stronger pod of coffee for the coffee pot. too weak. bought my own coffee and filters.

Nice hotel. Pretty good deal at the time we went. The view was awesome!

I liked the price compared to other hotels. The hotel looks old and cheap from the common area of the hotel. The floors are like a roller coaster as you walk up and down in the hallway and room. The room waa big and mostly updated. The bed was small and uncomfortable. The full kitchen was great. The bathroom was horrible. The tub was yellow and rusted. The trim on the side of the tub was held on with one screw. The toilet was tiny and the layout was not functional. The counter extended over the toilet making the area around the toilet even smaller. The lid of the toilet scraped the counter when you raised it and the seat could not be lifted to urinate because it was blocked by the counter. The pool area was ok. The hot tub however was very small and could not accomodate the few people staying here during the off season.

Nice views of the oceanfront and of the land, so we could see the sunrise from our balcony and the sunset from the hall or the hotels balcony. The room was set up nicely and it was clean. We also liked their green policy. Great location on the boardwalk!

Rude and dismissive reception from staff. Maybe it was because it was a money making/price gouching weekend from people of color? I do not recommend this "resort" during a FUNKFEST weekend at Virginia Beach. I paid too much money to be taken for granted and to be greeted as a burden. People of Color stop spending your money where you are not wanted!

Awesome view of the beach and the fireworks on Sunday and Wednesday nights! Good layout of apartment. Very friendly staff-willing to help.

It was nice to have a room with a mini kitchen and separated bedroom, kitchen/dining area. The views were amazing and the hotel staff very courteous.

Nothing good to write about. Very disappointed in staff and outdated hotel.

I enjoyed my stay, I had a one bedroom suite. The room was clean and the floor I was on was nice and quite. This is y second time staying at this hotel and will be back for another stay in the future.

We apologize that we only have one guest laundry room currently order but have been waiting on new appliances from back order for a few months now. Our spa does in fact work correctly, the Hot Tub was simply replaced with the Soaking Spa last spring.
