The hotel was beautiful! The pool and slide were lots of fun. The room needed a little deep cleaning. Found a used wash cloth in the shower curtain and there were what looks like dog hairs on the rug. Kinda out of the way. But it was nice for the weekend. Enjoyed the spa and breakfast as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"beautiful griounds facilities common areas dirty"
Pricey. Food good, grounds and facilities excellent but common areas in disrepair and maintenance is unsatisfactory. Need to keep trash cans emptied, common areas clean, entries needed cleaning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My stay was OK - WiFi did not work in my room."
There was a lot of maintenance going on during my stay. My main complaint was the WiFi did not work in my room as advertised. The signal was too weak to access the internet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to beaches and sights"
Superior customer service, comfortable room, great breakfast buffet, beautiful hotel, nice hotel amenities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a blast with two small kids using the excellent pool facilities in an calm and generous environment.Genuine Expedia guest review
FI was wonderful, the rooms were spacious, the cleaning staff failed to vacuum and empty trash cans, had to request this service. Pool was the best! Life guards were preoccupied with cell phones, not knowledgeable about products and services. Overall loved the tripGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with lots of additional features"
My family and I loved the stay at this hotel. It has three swimming pools and a hot tub. One swimming pool on the inside and two outside. One of the outside pools is shallow, but very long and wide. We all enjoyed the swimming. The other pool is small, but deep. It stands at the end of a sliding tube which is nicely fit as much as for kids as for adults. […] Rooms are neat. We had some minor problems with lack of towels. There were 4 people in the room and we usually were missing a towel or two. But other than that we spent a very relaxing a quiet vacation with a fountain in the middle of a swan pond. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My stay was nice. However, there weren't enough wash cloths in the room. The description stated there was a pull out sofa, but there wasn't. It is a very nice hotel, however, it is an old hotel. A bit prices for being so old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice, great service, very good decisionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall it was a great hotel, great staff and kids"
Overall it was a great hotel, great staff and kids loved the poool area. Only drawback was the mattreses which was wayy to soft and rough on the back. We had beautiful weather and one thing that would be awesome is to have some type of grilling by the pool as it would aleviate going somewhere else to eat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not close to anything relevant to my trip"
not what they advertise,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An oasis, close to everything..."
"Inn" is a misnomer because this resort is good sized. There are 4 buildings that house lodging with a main building that contains all the common areas. We got in very late on a Friday night but were warmly greeted upon arrival. While not close to the beach, there is a complimentary shuttle 4x/day to/from VA Beach. There is also transportation to Greenbrier […] Mall although we never used it. There's a full service restaurant on site as well as a good sized swimming pool w/slide. Fun for the you and young at heart! I'm not a Spa person but they seemed to offer all the standards. Great Norfolk restaurant recommendations from the Front Desk. The Inn is just off the highway so it's pretty convenient to get in/out of. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A place with memories!"
We came to Virginia to see our son and his family. We stayed here because it had memories for us and our son. We are from Texas and he had completed a Masters program in counseling. It was easy to locate and near where they lived in Norfolk and also to the interstates. Easy to reach the beach and the airport. The food was absolutely fantastic and the […] facilities tranquil.

"Clean stay, great location"
Clean room, though size differed even at same price. Website pictured room must be top priced. Pillow top queen bed seemed too narrow, likely the result of having a king at home. AC cooled room quickly but cycled warmer several nights. Staff friendly and most courteous. Pretty grounds and all the feel of a good, safe location. No loud partying next […] door. Great access to I-264 and I-64. Close enough to beach without the hassle of local beach motels/hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel, pool, suite, spa, etc"
Very fortunate to have had all 4 days of sun and hot weather. Very near many fast food and better class restaurants, and churches and shopping. Also, a very convenient free shuttle to/from Virginia Beach..MUCH better than paying for parking!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Price and Outstanding Accommodations!"
From our greeting at the Front Desk until we checked out, Founders Inn made a perfect impression on us. The warm and friendly staff was made a new customer to their facility feel like an old friend. And when we got to our room, what a pleasant surprise. The linens were top-notch, the facilities and room details were amazing. It is amazing how having […] bottled water in our room could be a great thing, but on a day when it was 95 plus, it hit the spot. The room and hotel is billed as Colonial, which might make you think, "old", but do not worry, it felt like you were walking into the most welcoming hotel room and were in your own home. I cannot speak highly enough about our stay and when we are travelling, definitely will plan to stay there again! A must stay location for the price and quality - kudos to the Founders Inn!

"Nice Place to Stay"
We had a good time staying here. We went to the beach on a Monday and it took about 25 minutes. The parking at the beach was $25 bus as we walked around and fond cheaper places. We also went to Bush Gardens and Water Country wich are about an hour away but if you hit traffic substantially longer. The room was a little small but very clean. The out door […] pool is great and it is a beautiful place to walk around and take pictures. The staff was realy nice and there was a positive relaxed energy from the other guests. Next time I would like to try the Swan Resurant. It seems on Tuesdays they have special pricing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location, loved the pool area, air conditioner did not work at it coolest and food service was poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
Breakfast was not included ,but available for $13.95 a person.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A really enjoyable experience and would go back there again no problem. The 'swan restaurant' was exceptional on Tuesday evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Founders Inn was recommended by a colleague who I was meeting with in the Virginia Beach area. It was convenient to the airport and easy to find. I didn't check in until almost 2am and while the gal who helped me was completely pleasant, she wasn't as engaging as I would expect a staff member to be at this type of a property. In fairness, it was […] 2am. At any rate, the room was nicely laid out, very clean, and comfortable. The breakfast buffet in the morning was surprisingly good. I didn't use the pool or the spa, but both appeared to be in good condition with many guests enjoying these venues. I did make use of the fitness facility at the property which was better than I'm accustomed to in my business travels. They had a variety of free weights, including a bench with a legitimate 7ft/45lb barbell. The grounds were nicely laid out and very well cared for. If I return to the Virginia Beach are, I will definitely stay here again. I booked at a rate of $125/night through Expedia. I have stayed at lesser quality hotels and paid significantly more. I thought this was an incredibly reasonable rate for the Founders Inn and will definitely return in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"AreChose this hotel because of Internet review"
Was there only 1night. Might be more enjoyable it that we're your destination . Our A/C did not cool. The bed was chest high and required some athletic ability just to get in. The mattress was so soft, I ended up sleeping on the floor to spare my aching back! Dinner in the hotel restaurant was nice and the staff was cordial. If you are in Virginia Beach […] on business , stay somewhere else. If you want a spa experience of several days, it is worth considering . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for couples"
We celebrated our anniversary at Founders and loved the facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel accommodations, grounds, staff and service were all very good. Housekeeping did a great job. They accommodated my special parking requirements for my motorcycle without issue. The food was alright but for this level of hotel I expected better. For example; smoked turkey sliders were lacked flavor and were made with deli meat instead of fresh roasted […] real turkey. Tried several dishes and some were better. I would suggest the Chef review his menu and quality control his food more stringently. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful place to stay!"
We arrived and didn't really have to do much. The staff are friendly helped with luggage and showed us the grounds as well as the other guest. Wonderful views, not far from the beach and very relaxing at night definitely would book here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for couples and Families Too!"
This hotel was a great find. Easy to get to and close to a lot of amenities. The staff was top rate. Rooms were very comfortable. Fitness center was a lot bigger then most other hotels. Outdoor pool area is very nice and great for families. There's also a small water slide which was great for the kids. Highly recommend this hotel and would definitely […] stay there again.

"Exceptional Hotel Experience"
If I could rate this hotel experience a "10" I would. The hotel, the staff and service all deserve a "10". When I am back in the area, I will most definitely book with Founder's Inn. We were also able to take advantage of the great food and service at their restaurant. Everything was so convenient. Great job Founder's Inn.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Could use regular carpet cleaning"
The grounds of the hotel were beautiful, and it seemed like there were a lot of wedding ceremonies and guests staying at the hotel. However, the room seemed like it needed a good spring cleaning. The carpets were dirty, with visible stains. Other than that, the room was comfortable, with a quality bed and linens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Average hotel, nothing spectacular. Beautiful grounds were the best part. Hotel restaurant was terrible. Rooms were clean but outdated. Overall an average place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This trip will be a memorable one. The staff was pleasant from the first day till the last day of my trip and was able to assist with every thing I asked for. Thanks guys. .... see you all next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice Hotel. My husband and I had a room on the third floor and he has bad kness, so the walking bothered him. I called the front desk and they had us in another room on the first floor within 15 minutes. We slept in the most comfortable bed ever. I always rave about the Hampton Inn having nice beds, but the Founders Inn is the BEST! I […] did not have a chance to check out the Spa but will be back soon. The staff was superb in taking care of our needs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice older hotel trying to keep up."
The Founders Inn was a nice older hotel that could use some "sprucing up". The staff was attentive and friendly. We were passing through and got in late and left the next morning so we didn't get to look around much. getting an extra hour at checkout was like trying to pull teeth. Overall it was a nice hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay there in the future should we revisit Virignia Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was great. Ideal for families with small children.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were clean and staff was excellent. Very willing to help every time we called. Would suggest putting more towels and wash clothes in the rooms and a little attention to the immediate surrounding leading into the individual accommodation areas/hostels. Extend the beautifully manicured gardens to the entrance of each building. Had a very restful […] stay all the same. Thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel did not have readily available information about neighboring attractions. When asked was told where they had a few brochuresGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for family or couple get away"
Everyone was very nice and helpful. The grounds are beautifully manicured. A play area for kids outside. Adult and kids games set up for anyone to use outside. There are porches to sit outside in a park like setting and benches around to sit and watch the fountain on the lake or enjoy the landscaping. We will defiantly go back for a visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for everyone."
I had an amazing time at the Founder's Inn and Spa. The only issue was when the air conditioner came on it woke me up. Other that my experience was amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
