"Won't stay here again!"
The hotel room was dingy, bathroom light didn't work, and the staff was less than helpful. The "coffee" that was provided for breakfast didn't have creamer available, when we asked for creamer we were told that the next person in shift was going to bring it. The next morning, still no creamer. The shampoo came in a plastic packet which was bearly enough […] for one person. The towels were rough and small and the bathroom wasn't very clean. The pool was an algea green and had slime on the bottom if it. DO NOT stay here! They are pet friendly and that was the only decent thing about the motel, but I would rather sleep in my car.

"Don't waste your money like us"
The man at the front desk first of all, insulated my husband, but we looked past it. Then we went to the room... This place is deceiving, from pics & description, doesnt look too bad for a one night stay, but my husband & I walked into the room & walked right out. There were stains all over the bed spread, pillows were yellow, and balcony is a 8 inch […] area with sliding door, and a smell that I don't think words can describe. We were only staying a night,but just couldnt do it. We are not the type of people that have money to pay for a night and loose out on the money not staying there, but we just couldnt stay, it was too disgusting. We went down the street and stayed at a different hotel for the night. We found out from the employees at the hotel we moved to that the police and fire are always there because of drug dealing & usage in the hotel. Don't waste your money!

"this hotel need total renovation!"
First let me say...the person at Front Desk was polite and apologetic. She explained there were new owners..I'm familiar with this property but it has really went downhill the past few years. The first room I was given, the door handle fell off when I tried to open the room. Never could open it..Second room had a urine smell by the balcony and on the […] comforters. Housekeeping was knocking on my door 20 minutes before checkout like she wanted me to hurry up and leave. Yet the room really wasn't that clean to start with. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"WORST HOTEL EVER.... NO exaggeration"
I went for my birthday/labor day weekend. My worst hotel experience in 28 years. $180 after taxes, I wasnt expecting greatness but I was hoping for decent. My air condition unit was set to 60 degree but it felt more likE 85-90 and when I sooke with maintenance man he said "what room, we just fexed that one" and never showed up. I opened slideing door […] and after that it never locked again. Half of outlets did not work, but the worst iut of all was waking up to see a ROACH on the headboard at 7:30 am. Manager was not availablek according to staff she was scheduled but didnt show up because it was her birthday. Im still waiting on a call from manager and its nearly a week. Please save yourself time and troubles. Hotes.com shouldn't even advertise for them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend to anyone"
No place to hang clothes, toilet takes forever to flush, all bath towels were very small, vending machines didn't work. Only thing good was the staff and location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good proximity to beach, meh aesthetics"
Considering the reservation was made the day before arrival on a holiday weekend, the prices were quite decent. Right across the street from the beach and an easy walk to all of the stores/restaurants on the main drag. The hotel room itself is exactly what you'd expect for the price. Not very nice, but not disgusting either.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's all about the people"
I had accidentally booked a smoking room. In this day and age, the fact that there are still smoking rooms is crazy to me, but I should have checked my reservation more closely. The team at this fully booked hotel moved mountains to find an alternative in the hotel. They noticed a mis-booked reservation and we were able to move rooms. They were so easy […] to work with, I'll definitely stay there again. They noted that the property is under new ownership, and the facilities are going to be upgraded...that will be a nice improvement. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location - Friendly staff - two night stay"
We stayed 2 nights to visit friends in VA Beach. Hotel is a little old, but the front staff are extremely friendly and the rooms were clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Older Beach Hotel"
If you are a seasoned beach vacationer, this hotel is a great value for the location. It is older but well kept and clean. It is the last hotel on the boardwalk to the south. We had a nice view of the ocean from our room at the far south end of the 4th floor. The beach is right across the street. It is family friendly and close to restaurants and shops. […] They have a nice outdoor pool. The only downside was the slow internet connection, but luckily the hotel across the street had a very fast, unsecured connection! Overall, it was a good experience and we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for"
Get what you pay for, hotel just needs a major faceliftGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for..."
Yes, it was about 100 less than all the others at that end of the boardwalk, and still only a five minute walk to the beach. If you're someone who can deal to save a buck, you'll be ok. Computer system was down (not their fault) but showed just how disorganized they were. I think the place is owned by someone who has more important things to do than […] invest in the place...it could be much nicer with a more professional staff and millions of minor repairs. All in all not worth 150 a night in my opinion. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Mid week stay - high season"
The room didn't look like the picture given on Hotels.com. The staff was friendly, the location good, and it is obvious they are trying to make improvements.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good place"
It was nasty hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"mother and daughter 1night"
booked the room for one night for my 10yr old daughter and i. I know that va beach rooms are sub par unless you are staying at a hilton or marriott so i had the right expectations. the reviews for this hotel made me search twice for another deal but we decided to go ahead and keep our reservation. we did pack our own towel and blankets because the reviews […] mentioned problems with it. However upon entering the room it was realllly decent and better than we expected. the room size was nice (i have been in rooms in va beach that were so small you had to stand in the bathroom to close the room door). there was no odor. it was clean and we felt safe. the location is ammmmazing!!! directly across the street from the ocean front and its a nice quiet end. nice view of the street and can see the ocean from the 4th floor room. the shower was clean but we did put a towel on the bottom of the floor still. (i would do that at any hotel). all in all this will be my main place to stay when visiting. the price was a quarter of what you would pay to stay on the opposite of the street on the ocean. not one complaint. staff was very friendly as well and gave coupons and great directions.

Old hotel which has not been taken care properly....Genuine Expedia guest review
Disappointed. The worst customer service that I ever had. Very dirty ill maintained place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Proximity to beach is high point."
Dated facility and it shows. Beds very soft. Tub bottom stained. Great view from upper floors. Check in delayed as room not ready at 6 PM. Proximity to beach is selling point and for this the value is fine for very short stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was great, the place was run down and needed work. The staff was nice. I would stay again if it was just a couple of days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I cannot get over how rude the woman was at the front desk. For this reason alone, I will NEVER stay there again, and I will tell EVERYONE I know about this place, so they don't make the same mistake I did. There was hair on the bathroom floor and dried up food left on the counter by the microwave............dirty room, ugh. Two of the 3 ice machines […] were Out of Order. And NO COFFEE. They advertise that they have a coffee bar. I was there two full days....not ONCE did they ever have coffee. Supposedly, staff is at the desk 24 hours a day. Not so! Also had the experience of having to stand at the counter and wait for the desk clerk to finish her personal phone conversation, and then she acted like I was bothering her....this happened more than once. She also called my brother "Ignorant," because he questioned her about his room. Unbelievable. Terrible experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is old, but the room was neat and clean. It's less than a block from the waterfront, with a view of the beach. Great location for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't expect much"
We only stayed at this hotel because it was cheap. We weren't expecting anything but the toilet did not work properly and I think one of the beds was broken. Had to wait in line a long time for check in for no particular reason I could see besides the employees were not being very efficient. Be aware that this hotel is pretty far away from the boar […] dwalk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beach across the street, literally"
It was very convenient location and since it was just a night and only my husband and I, we liked it and we'll b staying there again. Price was great but you get what you pay for. Pool was clean, beach across the street. Room had A/C unit that worked. People were very nice. Lots of stores and restaurants near by. Parking was no problem. Hotel is rundown, […] needs upgrades.

for the price it was close to the beach but the room smelled like a dirty ash tray, the floor was wet from who knows what , the room did not have a small kitchen like the pic and description showed, the shower did not drain like it should so when you got a shower you were standing in bath water and the balcony or should I say ledge was so small all […] you could do is stand on it, no room for a chair. would not recommend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good for one night stay"
hotel not the most up to date but comfortable for the evening. Not able to get a chair on the balcony(not very wide) but was able to see the ocean from my room. I just put a chair in front of the balcony door and enjoyed the view. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Last hotel on that end of beach so not too crowded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Asked for towels twice, got NONE! Most employees acted like we were a bother. The location was nice but hotel was old and in need of repair. Wouldn't stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were bad they had broken springs in matresses and were lopsided there was a cooktop stove but no pans or cooking utensiles or bowls of anykind the fridge was a piece of junk also breakfast was coffee onlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could not open door to room"
First off its not ocean side, the hotel is on the other side of Atlantic blvd, You can however see the ocean from some rooms, you are looking between building and over a parking garage. Room was cool, AC did work, rooms bed where fine. The door key-card never worked for us, so each time we wanted to enter we needed to get the staff to come up with a […] special device, and it took a long time, each time they said they would fix it.... The staff was nice however. Place is not bad if you can't find a room anywhere else. One elevator and its slow very slow, take the steps! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"old hotel in need of renovation"
My husband and I took a trip to Virginia Beach to pick up our son from the Navy for a two-week leave. In reviewing many of the hotels around there, Oceanview was the cheapest by at least $50. a night. When we got there we understood why. The Hotel is old and in need of renovation. We were told they are in the process of renovating the rooms. The furniture […] is old, the bed is old and saggy, the curtains are old and missing some hooks as well as being in the way of the air conditioner. If you're looking for a cheaper place to stay very near the beach, then this is the place for you. do not expect any breakfast, they have nothing to offer. And many times the coffee pot is empty. The best thing about this place is the location and the staff. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel only if your funds are tight and you don't mind that old look. and if old elevators don't scare you because theres is ancient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
your hotel need matanance repair,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is old & needs work. However, my room was nice and clean and the people at the front desk were very pleasant & helpful. They took the time to ask if everything was ok or if I needed anything. Also, although the hotel is not right on the boardwalk, it is across the street. It is in a safe and convenient spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ocean Side Inn"
We only stayed for a night but for the money it was very nice. OCI is located 1 block from the beach and at the very end of the boardwalk close to the surfers beach. The parking was sufficient and the lobby pleasing. Most of the staff was very nice but there was an evening shift woman who was rather non-caring of our questions. There was a laundry room […] which was nice ($2 per load). Again, for the price ($115 per night) and a block from the beach I would do it again for a short term visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I guess the room was clean enough...but just barely. The halls and public areas were filthy though. My shower water was hot but others traveling with us complained about lukewarm water in their showers. Making up the room apparently involved taking out the dirty towels (but no clean ones), emptying the trash, and possibly making the bed (but that was […] inconsistent). When we got to the hotel, the room my mom & dad were given hadn't been cleaned...pizza boxes and trash on the floor. No clean beds, etc. And I know of at least one other family that happened to the next day. Our room was ready for us but was a big disappointment overall. The curtains were very shabby and the bedspread looked like it hadn't seen a washing machine in quite some time. The 'free wifi' didn't work for any of the time we were there (2+days). The elevator down button from our floor (4th) didn't work. It took some time to figure out that if we hit the up button the elevator would eventually come. there was a coffee maker in every room but the hotel didn't see fit to provide coffee. No kleenex (tissue) was provided in rooms either. And the sad part is that the staff didn't seem to care about any of it. All in all, a verify poor property. I would never in a million years stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"cheap overnight stay relatively clean!"
The hotel needs cleaning, service is passable! Location is good! All in all for an overnight stay, the hotel was ok! but if I had to stay longer at the same price I would not!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You're basically at the beginning of the boardwalk. Don't expect breakfast from the hotel it's simply there for close access to the beach. The view from the 6 th floor is very nice if you're standing on the mini balcony Lol. Overall it was a good last minute stay & price for oceanfront.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We arrived at 1030 check inn wasn't supposed to be til 3 they let us check inn early and check out later then usually very friendly staff however the hotel itself sure could use some renavationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap hotel; you get what you pay for."
When we first walked into the hotel we were very turned off by the questionable, old stained sofa in the lobby and the general, run-down appearance of the place. We waited for the desk clerk to return from the store before we were able to check in. However, when the desk clerk arrived she was actually very helpful. The first room we entered had several […] broken fixtures, including the bathroom door, bathroom lights, and front entrance light. In addition, the television and fridge appeared dropped and scratched, while the microwave was still dirty from the previous guests. To give the room a little credit, at least we didn't find bed buds when we searched the mattresses..? We immediately went back downstairs to explain the situation to the desk clerk and she offered us a new room. The new room was significantly better, but two light fixtures by the bed didn't work. We told the desk clerk we would take the new room and she said maintenance would take care of the lights...needless to say, those lights never got fixed. We were barely in the room during the trip, so it was not a big deal to us, but you really do get what you pay for. We all decided next time we would just pay a bit more for a better place, but if you just need a cheap place to drop your stuff and hit the beach, this place is alright.

You pay for what you get. You get a nice view of the beach and you are right across the street, The hotel itself is not in the best of shape but it is cheaper than going beach side.Genuine Expedia guest review

would never stay their again i want my money backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The air conditioner didn't work so the room was hot. Taking a shower was like standing under a leaky faucet. I don't recommended anyone stay here. Says they have a pool but there was no water in it. I guess you get what you pay for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stay away from this hotel, no water in the pool, construction zone, which was not disclosed. The only good thing I have to say is its proximity to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cleanliness of the entrance of the hotel was lacking. MIcrowave needs to be replaced. Good location but it needs better maintenanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget Hotel Close to Beach"
The hotel is fine if you're looking for an affordable hotel close to the beach. The room smelled like it had been a smoking room, but it aired out pretty quickly. The room and bathroom were clean. The balcony was nice with a view of the beach. It's not fancy, but if you are looking for a place to crash close to the beach and bars, this will do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
