"worst oceanfront hotel"
Don't let the great reviews fool you or the nice pictures either ...This place is the dump. .Next to real nice hotels on both sides but this hotel does not fit with them at all. The only thing that keeps me from giving them 1s across the board is that they have a friendly staff. Other than that the rooms are small and dirty. We will never stay here […] again.

This place is wonderful. First off the location is perfect. The view was beautiful. The owner is so friendly and sweet. Really enjoyed talking with her. She was very helpful with things to do close by. The room was very clean and comfortable. The diner was awesome. Breakfast was amazing. Access to the bikes to ride up and down the boardwalk was great. […] The bus picks up at the corner for $1 and takes you wherever you want. The whole experience was just wonderful. I'll be telling all my friends about this place and can't wait to stay there again soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and friendly staff!"
Overall a very nice stay. The rooms are a little small but it was very quiet and clean. The beach wasn't as crowded as the other larger hotels and the free bikes were great! It did lack extras we are used to such as laundry facility and game room for kids. Basic hotel but perfect for a quiet vacation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First Ever Stay at Virginia Beach"
My daughter and I loved this hotel. We wanted something smaller and more authentic than the "Big Box" hotels. The room was cute, clean, great view of the beach, staff wonderful, coffee shop good, location fantastic. The weather? Not so great with two days of thunder and lightening.....If I ever get back to the area, will stay hear again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the beach"
Pros: wonderful staff, excellent location, outdoor heated pool Cons: older facilities but certainly acceptable. teenagers screaming and banging on doors at 1AM (not the fault of hotel staff and par for the course at the beach)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older but good clean hotel with a very friendly staff and a great location at the nicest part of the beach. If your trip to the beach is about the beach and having a clean safe comfortable ocean front place to sleep shower and change clothes then the Belvedere is for you. If you want spend hours sitting in the room, then maybe not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very friendly and clean"
Enjoyed our stay.. older hotel wo any extra amenities..very clean..staff extremely friendly..loved the location at the quiet end of beach..also enjoyed the complimentary bikes..a little pricey compared to neighboring hotels w much more to offerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"right on the beach"
Small place but very comfortable and quite. Enjoyed stay very muchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great. The rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful. We enjoyed being able to check out bikes. The attached diner is an added bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved every minute of it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was perfect for us. It was close to enough places we wanted to go, but far enough from some of the late night areas that were loud late into the evening (but still walking distance from night-life!). The hotel was very clean. The pool was small but very clean and actually heated like they said. (Had quite a few freezing cold outdoor "heated' […] pool experiences in my life...) It doesn't have some of the amenities I prefer, but I knew this going into the trip. Who needs a gym anyway with all of the walking and bike riding?? I chose to stay here because it was a little more affordable and I was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely come back and I would recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place for the Price"
Just what we were hoping for...no frills but friendly and sensible service with a ocean view at a reasonable price. Great diner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I traveled here for Memorial Day weekend.... Honestly we were VERY CONFIDENT booking with Belvedere based on the REVIEWS!! And it was TOTALLY well worth it from the hospitality to housekeeping!! It's VERY TRUE what everyone has said about how helpful the staff was (really informative, convenient, accommodating ) welcoming each day all […] throughout the days/nights very nice and pleasant!! Going to sleep to the sound of waves crashing and waking up to a beautiful sunrise/ dolphins was SPECTACULAR!! LOVED THE VIEW!! We really needed this trip after the strenuous work weeks we've had prior! Thank you previous reviewers for your honesty, info, and details!! And THANK YOU VERY MUCH Belvedere hotel staff for doing your jobs so wonderfully y'all made our vacation THAT MUCH MORE WONDERFUL!!!!! Definitely a yearly trip for family and romance! Virginia Beach is TRULY for LOVERS!! Will definitely stay here again!!! Diner downstairs really small but food was descent Mimosas were on point n available at breakfast, bicycles LOVED people were pretty much on time bringing them back, Oh.... Not a downer but parking is an inconvenience too tight and too pricey for parking lot!! Other than that you can cycle or walk within the area! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very conveniet location, right on the beach. Clean rooms. I infact extended my stay. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was great! Hotel a bit dated, but who spends that much time in the hotel when you're at the beach anyways? Definitely would recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location, service, friendliness of staff and room were all excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Would definitely stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Right on the boardwalk and the convenience of having a coffee shop right at the hotel. The availability of bicycles free of charge was as nice feature. Will stay again on our next trip to Virginia BeachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and we enjoyed our stay."
Nothing fancy but great location and the staff is great. Has a heated pool and all rooms are ocean front. We will definitely go back to the Belvedere. The breakfast diner attached to the hotel is great for breakfast!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely family owned gem"
This was our first stay at Belvedere, which was recommended by family. We found the accommodations to be very comfortable and staff very friendly. Although it is not "ritzy" like many of the chain hotels that surround it, we found it clean and comfortable. It is definitely a gem hidden between the chain hotels. Restaurants and shops are all within walking […] distance and the boardwalk is fantastic. We will definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome 1st visitGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location with free parking. Impeccable service at front desk - nice to have access to bikes free of charge, as well. Room was very comfortable - all rooms face the beach. We stayed on the 3rd floor and loved the view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was amazing great people! The rooms were a little small but the entire hotel made the stay feel really cozy considering the beach was packed. Felt the warmth from the staff from the minute i checked in to the second i checked out. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Went here for a long weekend in late April to get away from the city (my partner and I live in DC). It was just what we needed! Cozy and scenic -- the Belvedere is right on the beach, and all the rooms have ocean-facing balconies. A short walk away (5-10 minutes) there are restaurants and shops, so most days we didn't even need a car. Every room has […] a mini fridge and a microwave, which we didn't use much, but it was a great option for leftovers (and subsequent late-night snacks). The bathrooms are small but clean and updated, and overall the place was charming and comfortable. Not a high-rise, flashy big box hotel, but that's what we prefer, and the front desk staff truly made us feel right at home. Service was impeccable -- one evening we had an issue with noisy neighbors, so when we approached the desk staff the next morning, they immediately moved us AND followed up with their private (contracted?) security personnel to prevent it from happening again. Great service, no hassle (they were very gracious about it -- we bought them pastries from a great nearby bakery, La Dolce Vita, to thank them :) That plus free bike rentals and a lovely heated outdoor pool -- I can see why this place is highly rated. We will definitely return! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cutest hotel, amazing location"
Everything about this hotel was cute and quaint. The room was decorated so cute with the theme of the ocean. Every room has an ocean view that over looksbthe boardwalk. As a bonus service, they have bikes for you to use at any time. Loved this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good hotel"
Went here for a weekend getaway with my wife. While the hotel is a little bit dated, the oceanfront view and the staff is amazing. The staff was very friendly and always ready to help wether it was with local restaurants or loaning a beach cruiser out for the boardwalk. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cleanliness+Quality=best ever stay"
My first stay at this hotel was wonderful for three nights was excellent and I will definitely come again for another stay at the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great staff and location!"
The staff of this hotel was really friendly and so helpful. I would definitely stay again. The location was perfect too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"oceanview rooms and family atmosphere"
This is a traditional motel on the quieter northern end of the beach with renovated rooms that are bright and fresh with balconies and ocean views for all. The owners and rest of the front desk team went out of their way to help with everything and the small attached diner is a bonus--delicious crab cakes and breakfasts. We chose this hotel for its […] location, old-time beach feel, reasonable price and great reputation for service. We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely go back.

"More good than bad but..."
Bathrooms are way too small and uncomfortable as a consequence but the service is A1, the owners want to make sure that any requests or problems are taken care right away. Also, they have a handful of bicycles available for free use by the hotel customers. There is an attached coffee-shop at the south end of the properly but, honestly, my husband and […] I feel that it leaves to be desired. We went there for breakfast once, our very 1st morning at the Belvedere, and never returned afterwards during our 3-day stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy place for a getaway"
My husband and I were looking for a cozy place to getaway and spend much needed time together at the beach. We were looking for ocean views and not a lot of high volume attractions or crowds. This is exactly what we found at the Belvedere! The staff were all friendly, informative and accommodating. Clean rooms, great staff, the Belvedere is definitely […] a place we will recommend to family and friends and return to in years to come. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort Cozy is a wonderful compliment. Thank you so much for staying with us and your kind words. We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent! Clean, friendly. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to othersGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort High praise indeed! Thank you so much for staying with us. We look forward to your return.
Excellent family run hotel . While not new, it was a great escape for my class. Hotel was 100 yards from my conference and they took care of all my needs. Coffee pot in the room would of been a good addition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort We are so glad we could provide a respite from your conference. We hope you can make it back for a well deserved vacation soon. Thanks for an excellent review.
Although the room was somewhat dated it was very clean. The salt water taffy at check in was a bonus. The front desk staff were friendly. The parking can be tight especially if you return back to the hotel later in the evening. Our room was on the second floor and it felt like we could walk right onto the boardwalk and beach. Enjoyed watching the sunrise […] each morning. The one draw back to the room is it was located above the diner so in the morning there was the aroma of food cooking coming into the room since we chose to have the sliding doors open to listen to the waves. We would definitely return again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort Thank you for the wonderful review. We love Atlanta and can't wait for your return. On your next visit you'll have to try the top floor. The view is to die for.
What a nice surprise for us! We wanted a modestly priced hotel to stay at on our way north from visiting family in Florida and we got so much more! The rooms are all beautiful ocean views with little balconies where we had a lovely lunch of sandwiches and wine from Taste, a deli the front desk recommended to us. We will definitely be back when Virginia […] Beach is our destination & not a short stop over! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort We love to surprise our guests with a little southern hospitality. Thank you so much for a terrific review and we promise to keep the wine cool until you return.
"dirty and dated"
they bill themselves as a family run operation and while others may find that endearing I really didn't care. What I did care about was location and comfort and cleanliness. It is right on the beach so that was great. Opening the door at night and sleeping to the surf was the best. However, the bathroom is approximately five feet by six feet. The smallest […] I have ever seen so if you are overweight you can't get into it. The room was very dated and the linens were thin and so were the towels. The bed was uncomfortable as well. However, the worse of the whole thing was the dirt. It might look fine superficially but when I went to plug in my phone there was dirt behind everything and on the tops of everything. The vent in the bathroom looked like it had stuff crawling out of it but was dust. Now I am not the greatest housecleaner but I paid a whole lot of money for this room and was not happy. I wondered what else about it was unsanitary. My husband wanted to check under the bed and check out the pillows a la Hotel Impossible but I told him I didn't want to know. I am sure they were nasty. There is so much competition in this area for hotels that I think you could find another one that is much better that is on the beach. Don't waste your time here.

Response by Belvedere Beach Resort Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. As hard as we try, we sometimes fall short of a guest's expectations. I have shared your comments with our staff and rest assured that cleanliness is at the top of our list in housekeeping. We encourage all of our guests to bring any concerns to our attention immediately so we can remedy things while your here. While this is rare for us, we take every guest's feedback very seriously.
"don't judge a hotel by it's look?"
Not a hotel chain, not a name you are very familiar with but a great hotel. Everyone was very polite, rooms were clean and all rooms have an ocean view. For the price, location this is a great place to stay. As a frequent business traveler, I'd recommend it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort You've hit the nail on the head! The Belvedere is the alternative to the chain hotels and we try to make our business traveler's feel as if they are on vacation. We look forward to your next visit.
We love the location on the quiet north end of the boardwalk, right on the water. We went in September and appreciated what must have been a heated outdoor pool. The best thing about this property is the people who work there. Service is great and I observed kids doing menial jobs with pride. It shows in the overall condition of everything on the grounds; […] worn but well cared for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Belvedere Beach Resort We can't thank you enough for the kind words for our staff. This is our family's 44th season at The Belvedere and we all take great pride in your continued trust and friendship.

Great family run staff, clean rooms, good bedding and pillows, AC a little loud , free bicyles and quiet rooms..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very tired looking hotel, hotels around it were new and nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, good location, but room too small"
Nice place, good location, but room too small. Enjoyed the diner connected to the hotel. Balcony views from 3rd floor were great. Clean, no fault except the room was too small for our comfort. Would have preferred king size bed instead of 2 doubles.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best inexpensive oceanfront room in VB."
It was great for the price. Clean and newly carpeted with flat screen TV. Oceanfront with balcony. Older building but well maintained. I've stayed in many inexpensive oceanfront rooms in VB(some were disgusting) and this was by far the best. I will go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"old school charm"
Glad I picked the Belvedere. The room was cozy and clean and the view of the beach was amazing (every room has an Ocean view!). We loved hanging out on the balcony and enjoyed the Ocean in the backlight of the sunset with an exquisite bottle of wine purchased from the owner choice selections! The folks at the front desk where warm and genuinely attentive […] and experts in Southern hospitality. The pool was clean and not overly chlorinated. The hotel in general felt like an apartment and very non corporate. I would only say that the diner downstairs has overly priced, weak coffee in styrofoam cups and the hotel does not bother to put a coffee maker in the rooms. But that is fine cause there are two Starbucks very close by. We will definitely return to the Belvedere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Belvedere ia a older hotel"
The Belvedere has a very fine staff that is very polite. Rooms were very clean and our comfort was well attended to. The hotel look to be built in the 1960's and has been maintained very well over the years. The location is great for beach use.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great weekend getaway!"
Friendliest front desk staff I have ever encountered. The room and view from our private balcony was beautiful. The day we checked out, the staff let us keep our car parked in the lot for several extra hours, and also let us use their bikes. Great weekend. Great hotel experience. Could not be more relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The customer service at this hotel is wonderful. We arrived very late Friday night knowing that the rule is only one parking spot per room and expecting to park in outrageously priced public parking. What we didn't know is that all public lots close at around midnight and that after 30 to 45 minutes of driving up and down the entire strip we would arrive […] back at the hotel in a pretty desperate situation. Well, Belvedere Beach Resort to the rescue! They graciously allowed us to park both cars there for the remainder of the night and we were able to finally settle in and hit the hay around 3 am. The great service continued throughout the weekend as they took care of every need we had and then some. They even allowed us to remain parked there after check out time on our day of departure so that we could hit the beach one last time. It was a great stay for a price at least $50 less than all the competition that weekend. I would definitely stay there again. It's on the quiet end of the beach and it was definitely a quiet stay. Great for families, albeit a little far from the action. It's still within walking distance of everything though. The diner was extremely small, and I don't suggest it for groups of more than four, but the food was good and the staff was happy and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable but a little on the small side. All in all It was a great stay and I'd recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived early and our room was ready and we were able to check in early. The hotel is family owned and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are outdated and kind of small but had everything we needed and were very clean. We enjoyed our stay especially the bikes they have on site for the guests to use free of charge. The pool is a little […] small but very clean, well maintained and heated. We also enjoyed the diner for an inexpensive breakfast or lunch. The morning we checked out they allowed to use the facilities for the rest of the afternoon until we were ready to leave. The diner is very convenient and we liked everything we tried. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My daughter and I stayed three days. The view was awesome. We loved the room decor. Everything about our stay was perfect!! I would highly recommend you stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
