"good spot but needs some work"
We had a nice stay at this hotel and the price was definitely worth it. But, the condition of the room was poor and it had some doors and lights that did not work. It was clean though. There was a lot of noise from the other rooms and the balcony is standing room only. The staff was very nice and willing to help or suggest things to do in the area. […] It was a good stay for the money but it needs a little TLC! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is great but the hotel sucks because the rooms wasn't completely clean and I paid to have stove fridge and coffee maker and it didn't had none of those things I paid for and the hotel it self was dirty .. Wouldn't recommend to anyoneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the event we went for."
Staff was very nice. I will stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were comfortable.... Location wasnt too good if you are looking to hang on the strip or boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past weekend. The hotel was perfect for us with our dog and close to our favorite restaurant Waterman's and the Fisherman's Wharf Marina. We would definitely stay there again. The only complaint I would have and it's not really a complaint but a suggestion would be to get a system where the room keys will still work […] if you have them near your phone. We had to get new ones a lot. But the staff was GREAT about it!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was nothing like I thought it would be. It was dirty the rooms smelled like smoke. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For one night"
I'm glad my friends and I stayed for only one night. This stay at this hotel was cold and boring. The hallways are tearrces on both sides of the hotel and only one elevator. The outside of the hotel needs to be remodeled, because when walking to the entrance door, the floors felt like they were going to cave in and we were going to fall in. The comfronter […] of the beds was out of date and style. The bed springs were old and rusty and had metal pieces sticking out to the point where there are scratches on the bottom of our legs and partcial of our arms. I'm just glad it was for night and in the rooms the smell was mold and and old paint. Heat and air conditioning did not work at all in none of our rooms, I would rate this hotel a 2.5 or a low 3; the price was right, but the stay could have been better. Hey the price you pay is the comfront of your stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
You get what you pay for. Location was convenient. Room and hotel were run down and dirty. I just returned from 3 & 1/2 months in Baghdad. This hotel would have been fine in a third world country or war zone. It was very disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
I moved out because of the condition of the room, lack of hot water and amenities. Even though I paid for two nights I left after the first night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is a small boutique hotel. The room is comfortable, and the location is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location, good for the price but I was dissapointed when I asked for a rollaway bed and they said "we only have 4 and they are all gone"Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was under going renovation once tht is done I'm sure with the new manager it will be fineGenuine Expedia guest review

"Budget Is the Operative Word Here"
This hotel was undoubtedly a nice one in its day, but lack of attention and failure to make repairs has taken its toll on this hotel. The handle on the door to the lobby has broken and hanging off. Still has not been repaired. The elevator was dirty and had some graffiti written on the wall. Checked in late Monday night. Now Thursday. Neither has been […] cleaned. Room is comfortable and close to the ocean (across the street). So close, that, if you open the door way, you can hear the ocean. Trash that was at the common area trash bin on Tuesday is still there. Site says you get a free continental breakfast. No breakfast. Last night got locked out of my room because the security bar on the inside of the door engaged. I was simply placed in another room for the night and was told someone would get me in my room in the morning. No one showed up in the morning, I called again and a maintenance man came up. Armed with only a Philips screwdriver, he disengaged the security bar. The Pros for this hotel:close to the beach, the staff is very friendly, and hotel is very cheap compared to the other hotels at the beach; however, having said that, I am glad that my family was not with me on this trip as we would not have actually checked in to the hotel. If all you are looking for is a place to sleep and do not care that the common areas are a mess and the room is very dated (i.e., old furnishings and has not been updated in years), this place would do the trick.

"okay room for the price ~ but..."
...but the hotel was closing for new management & renovations the day we checked out. Staff explained to me the owners put the management of the property up for bids and a different VA. BEACH hotel owner won. While we were checking out on Sunday morning the hotel was being emptied of most things that were not nailed down! Hotel is in a good south location, […] price was cheap all things considered. After renovations of this older property is should be a fine destination to enjoy the beach... PS: Parking lot is tight, parking at night was like playing musical chairs. Luckily we always found a seat! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Close to Sand Castle Exhibit"
Nothing spectular about the hotel. It was clean, very close to the Neptune Festival. The staff was very nice and helpful. I think this was probably the best bargain on the beach. Clean rooms and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but in need of updates"
This hotel is in a good location but needs updates. The sliding glass door was difficult to open and dirty. The air conditioner did not work so the maintenance guy tried to fix it but in the end it still did not work well. The water pressure of the shower was excellent but again the bathroom needed some desperate updates.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Virginia Beach on the Cheap"
Hotel is old and needs help. But staff was firendly. Cheapest around and close to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for price but certainly nothing special."
Overall ok but that is about all it was. Just ok. Good for price but certainly nothing special. A bit run down (safe in room didn't work, burn marks in curtains)Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect for quick getaway for the weekend. We stayed for blue angels show.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was just what we needed for a weekend away. Good clean room, walking distance to everything, wonderful staff. Everything working well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Disappointing--The towels are very small and need some conditioner to soften them, furniture and curtains are very dated and need to be kept in better condition. Pillows need to be more plush,and it would be nice if the staff had asked these questions while I was there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Low Rate, Low Quality"
It served the purpose, but little else. No soap or tissues in our room; no blanket on the bed--just a sheet and bedspread. As we packed up to check out, we noticed water leaking from the ceiling. No frills for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
rates were good,, safe didnt work,, had to get the light in the bathroom fixed. only one elevator,,,, stay was ok for what I wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The mattress was horrible - it was lumpy and very uncomfortable. Only one elevator and no continental breakfast - only juice. Location is good but we could not move our car because the streets were blocked off for a race and loud rock music woke you up at 7am on Sunday morning when we were not ready to get up. We were not informed of this.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked this hotel based on location, availability, and rate but found it mostly disappointing. Parking was horrendous especially for a large vehicle. Maid service seemed done at request only and had to ask for many items not in room of which we were told they were out of. Location to beach was good but overall not happy with our stay. Will definitely […] look elsewhere next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, and "Clean enough...""
This hotel is super old and definitely needs some sprucing up. The important ammenties were clean enough, toilet, shower etc, but the carpet was pretty nasty. For the price they have this is closest you can get to the beach for the cheapest. If you are looking for just a place to lie your head at night it's ok, but if you want a place for your family, […] I might chose an upgraded hotel. For me, it had a view of the beach at a cheap price, so I would consider staying there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
it's a great location. just needs some modern updates... the air conditioner leaked on the carpet...our siding glass door did not open.. this place is what you pay for cheap...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"cleaning agents too strong for me"
Was about as expected. Small room, very convenient to beach. Partial ocean view. Cleaning agent smell was too strong for me. Left sliding door open almost all the time to air out room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Just fine,thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We love the Budget Lodge!"
We were looking for a last minute, inexpensive hotel stay, within walking distance to the beach. It takes less than a minute to get to the beach and boardwalk, and the service was polite and helpful. The building is older and the room is smaller than some of the newer hotels, but they keep it clean and comfortable. We were also traveling with a baby, […] so were happy about the fact that the room was an efficiency with a fridge, sink and microwave. We will definitely stay here again the next time we come to VA Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't mind a hotel that is older, but I do want a clean room. The bath room was not cleaned during our entire week and I frequently had to request towels because they were not replenished. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the room was not as clean as I would expect it to be. It is very close to the beach which was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good value for the money charged"
The staff was the best part of the hotel the hotel seems to be pretty old and has been through lots of maintenance over the years every thing worked its in a good location but could use some cosmetic upgradesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It worked for what I needed"
The good- great view, we were on the sixth floor and our front door faced the harbor and our back door had a obstructed view of the ocean. It was obstructed but because of the placement of the hotel, you could see around the large hotel in front of it on both sides. The ok- the breakfast was on the lower budget side, but I wasn't expecting a waffle […] station and was happy their was some variety. The room needed some love and repair, but everything did work. The bad- the cleanliness of the room was a little disappointing. Our window door had what I guess as hard water stains on it which meant you couldn't see the ocean at all without opening the door. There was garbage behind the nightstand that had been there a while. We did get fresh towels but the longer we sayed in the room we got less of them and they stopped being put in the bathroom despite the old being removed. Toilet paper roll that got used up was not replaced. It was a sense of laziness and a reason I might not return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The lady that checked us in was very rude. We asked about parking because their were no spaces left when we checked in. She gave us a pass to park in a city owned lot but we had to be in it by midnight because they locked the gate for the night. I asked for a pass for the hotels lot too just in case we missed the cutoff and she said no that was our […] parking. We couldn't get into the room so I had to go back to the rude lady at the desk. She was awful yet again. The room was disgusting...we pulled back the comforter on one of the beds and there were brown stains all over the back...in the shower there was hair all over the wall. There was something slippery all over the tile floor. I would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Budget in August"
Great location. A short walk to the Beach, souvenier shops, food and Rudy's Inlet for fishing off the breakwall. The room was clean, the hotel service was good and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was basic , Cereal, Toast, Juice, Coffee and hard boiled eggs. All the amenities worked. Hotel can use some renovation but it was fine for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great, we did have some noise from the planes flying over to the bases but it wasn't that bad only lasted a few minutes. Hotel is located at the end of the boardwalk so we never had to move our car. Rented bikes, did an all day pass on the bus, close to all the restaurants, it was a great location. Room turned out to be better than […] expected for the price. Was nice in clean, staff was excellent. Someone had been smoking in my non-smoking room so they brought up an air purifier machine while we went out to eat, came back and the room was perfect! One of the best birthdays I've had in years. Hotel was perfect for it to be last minute and low cost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Right across the street from the beach"
Nice place, great location, and an excellent price. Rooms were clean, but would have appreciated coffee packets in the room. Hotel manager said that they don't put packets in the room.......???Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was just okay...but parking lot is inconvenient, they don't have enough space when they are fully book and i don't like the location of the building, it's in the middle of 2 roads which i find that is not safe if you have small children...All i can say is, it's the cheapest i got during a peak season but expect what cheap things gives you!....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to ocean front."
I think this is one of the worse hotel we have stay in.The hotel need a lot up date It is way to old and the rooms are fill of dust the beds are so old it feel like you sleeping in a hole.And when it come to costumer services there was none.We asked for 2 extra pillows They told us that they don't provided extra pillow,there was no coffee maker in the […] room.At least they do provided coffee at front desk. The only good thing about it is the locations I hope they can invest some money to improve the quality and services. Well I guest You get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
