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
"Close to beach"
Hotel was ok. Tried to go to sleep and it sounded like the outside was in the room. Sliding glass door did not close well. Other then that stay was okGenuine Expedia 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
Customer service was great; towels need to be improve; same as furniture; to old But customer service was a plusGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked that it was close to the beach. The beds were really uncomfortable and the bathroom door didn't shut. Otherwise, the service was really good and accommodating.Genuine 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
"Good for the price"
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.

"Not too bad"
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
"it was not good"
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
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

"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
