The state’s largest city, Virginia Beach is known for the inviting stretches of sand that front the Atlantic Ocean. A three-mile boardwalk hosts runners, bikers, and in-line skaters as they whiz by the shops, restaurants, amusements, and many hotels along the way. The military has a strong presence here, too, with air and naval stations situated throughout Virginia Beach.see all hotels in Virginia Beach
We stayed in room 601 (the north end of the hotel). There was very loud music from the restaurant/street below until 11pm. Even with the balcony door closed it was almost impossible to sleep. We paid extra for a "jetted tub" which is a joke. We were expecting something that would fit two people, but the tub was barely large enough for one. Bathroom […] was small with ugly pipes exposed below the sink. The king size mattress was old and saggy. For $230/night we were expecting a lot more. We will stay somewhere else on our next visit to Virginia Beach. The front desk staff was exceptional. Very friendly and got us into our room early. Request a room on the south end of the building if you want to avoid the live music that plays on the weekends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, OK hotel"
Great location near 5th street stage during events! We had to move rooms at 230AM because the AC went out when I suspected it wasn't working properly at check-in because the room was terribly muggy. We also killed a roach in that room before we moved. The only room available was on the smoking floor. However it did not reak of cigarettes like I worried. […] It was a King suite with a kitchenette and much nicer bathroom so I was very glad we made the switch for the rest of our stay. Had we started our long weekend in the second room I would probably not write off the hotel completely. We will not stay there again but I would rate it a 3 out of 5!

The check-in was a nightmare. Arrived after my check in time, waited 30 minutes to be helped, was told my room was still not ready, then was ignored for another 15 minutes, then given a room that was not what I paid for and was told there was nothing they could do. I had to argue with the person, who was just a kid, until I got the room I paid for and […] he continued to tell me it was somehow my own fault. The room smelled strangely of sweat and the second night there was a roach on the wall. The view was nice and the checkout process was easy but the check in was awful and the stay wasn't great.

"P.A.S.S. : pretty average stay sadly"
Not bad, but no frig to keep bev's cold. No outdoor pool. Too noisy when the band cranks it up at the corner of the hotel, outside the restaurant, which was simply okay. However, nice new very comfortable king-size bed was diamond in the rough. No problem sleeping, which is a good thing when you're on vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel on beach"
Adjoining room connected by door held an unhappy family. Walls are sound proof, but the door was not. It was almost like they were in the same room with us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A nice, quick getaway."
We needed a hotel that allowed my family to enjoy the beach while I was away with the car for business meetings. It served it purpose just fine. The room was cramped for a family of four, but it served us our needs. We stayed three nights. We had a nice time, but 3 nights were plenty for a small hotel room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"on the beach"
the view of the beach from our balcony was great , other than the huge black drain pipe located directly in front of the beach view--and the lumpy bed mattress--- the food served at the hotel was fab. had breakfast one morning at a outdoor table facing the ocean, got to see dolphins at a distance how great was that?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the beach, great weather, reasonable price stay"
I had stayed at this hotel before so I knew what to expect but like anything else you notice something new each time. It's in a good spot for varied activities. We did run into an issue when we got to our room as the AC was not functioning properly. I checked the filters and one was in backwards, the other had not been cleaned for some time. We called […] for maintenance and the responded very quickly, which was a nice surprise. They found an issue but overall the unit did not function properly. Plumbing fixtures were for the bath were loose in the wall, general upkeep seemed to be less then I would expect from a Ramada. I may stay there again but I will also be looking at other places Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"My Stay @ the Ramada."
I was disappointed by the room, (No Mini Fridge or Microwave), the view of the beach was excellent and the service was good, everyone was very helpful and friendly. The best part of my stay at the Ramada was the Valet Parking, these guys worked for tips and were extremely professional, it made the stay worth it. Overall the hotel was nice and aff […] ordable.

"Too expensive for what you get."
Hotel was fine for a older beach side hotel. Definitely some wear and tear to it. Made last minute reservation during holiday weekend and paid WAY too much for this hotel. Other than that, it's at a nice location. Right on the beach, has a nice restaurant on the first level (was very popular, to the point there was a huge wait). All in all, not a bad […] place to stay... i just wouldn't pay more than $100, it's not worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoyed our room, however; we were really put off by the rush of the concierge to sign us up to see a 90 minute timeshare event the next day at another location. We had been traveling 10 hours and simply wanted to go to our room to rest and relax.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty nice one. horrible staff"
Rooms great... Hispanic gentleman was at check in and was the most rude individual I have EVER metGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is ok, but..."
I chose this hotel because I have stayed here in the past (about 3 years ago). Unfortunately, it looks like it hasn't been updated since then. For the room, there were stains in the carpet as well as carpet coming up near the door. The walls have markings all over them from abuse. The room had an odor throughout but it was an odor that the room had […] not had air flow, this stayed the entire visit. I personally do not want housekeeping in my room. The first day, I received two calls to my room to check on whether or not I wanted services. I had placed the "Please do no disturb" sign on the door. On the third day, housekeeping apparently took it upon themselves to remove the sign and come into my room. While making the bed and replacing towels, my belongings were moved around. To me this is a intrusion on my privacy. Also on the third day, I received a message in the afternoon from the concierge informing me that the hotel had set up a package for me. This was on the late afternoon one day before my checkout. I would only recommend this hotel if you need somewhere to stay quickly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very comfortable beds"
While the hallways and lobby looked dated and old, the bedroom was very clean and the beds comfortable. The location was perfect for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value, but..."
As this is off season, the area and hotel were quiet and not near full capacity. With that in mind, I could still hear people talking in the next room, not yelling. So I assume the walls are very thin. As this is older hotel, but good cosmetics, the AC/heater is not thermostatically controlled. As the temps were in the 20-30's the room was either too […] hot or too cold (had to repeatedly turn on or off the unit). There was a gap in the door to floor space, so stuffing that helped. They did not have extra blankets in the room, so I took the one from the other bed, which was fine. Knowing this, I would stay again for the price. I just adapt. And the bed was very comfortable.

OKGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room was acceptable. The hallways and furniture were out dated but the beds were comfortable. The parking was very inconvenient, we had to park a block away from the hotel because there was no parking at the hotel. I do think the room was overpriced as compared to others hotels in the area which are nicer hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great view from the room.not the best buy for your money Holiday inn was much better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing, the second time around."
This is my second stay here within a month. My previous experience was "4". However, the room on this stay was very poor. First, the room had a "coating" of dust with the bathroom vent covered with a layer. The carpet was dirty, the toilet seat missing a support on the bottom. The TV controller was not operable. I was tired from my trip and decided […] to wait until the next morning to rectify the situation, except I called the desk and they sent maintenance to bring one that worked.. I spoke with the manager in the morning and he promised to correct the problems. When I returned that evening, the furniture and bathroom vent were cleaned, but the toilet seat was not and i decided not to bother with another call. That evening, the toilet tank was leaking and I called the front desk. Maintenance promptly came and said the problem as a loose fitting and since it wasn't severe, he said he would leave a note for the day shift. When I returned the next day, the toilet still had a leak. Since I was leaving the following day, I didn't bother to call about the problem. The location and view was excellent, as was the restaurant Mahi Mah's, although a bit pricey...but the food quality and service were both excellent, there and in the bar. I would stay there again, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We booked this room because of Hotels.com rating. You had it wrong. This hotel deserves no more than two and a half stars, your site rated it a four.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"moderate hotel - will stay elsewhere next time"
We got a decent rate for the Ramada for a Thursday night in the beginning of the off-season. We enjoyed the restaurant and walking on the beach in the morning. The room was ok. The coverlet on the bed had what looked like a burn in it which went straight through to the duvet. The bed was surprisingly comfortable however and my husband and I both got […] a great nights sleep. The bathroom was dark, dingy and old and the shower curtain rod had been completely ripped out of the tile. It had been poorly repaired however the state of the bathroom was far from spa-like. We will likely try out other properties for our next stay in Virginia beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great family hotel."
Very convenient to the beach, at the center of all the action. Not posh, but wouldn't expect that. Very mid-level and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our weekend visit. Nice location. Boardwalk is great. Would be nice to have complimentary coffee in the lobby. Nice breakfast place just down the block.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our first night was a nightmare. It was 100 degrees out A/C was barely working, pipe burst in the room which flooded straight down 3 levels into the restaurant below... then the toilet flooded. There was some kind of goo on the bed skirts. They were unable to give us another room and offered to move us to another property for the night (at midnight) […] but we would have to move back the next day..not appealing. We decided to stay and stick it out. The next morning they moved us four doors down the hall. The HVAC was great and the pipes held for the night. They were very nice and refunded the nights stay but I probably wouldnt stay there again. There are better choices for the same money I think....Sorry Ramada. No great shakes. The people that assisted us were the best part of the place. Staff was awesome. They don heat the halls and elevator...absolute ovens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good but bathroom is tight"
Nice view of ocean but the rooms were on the small side and you have to squeeze in the bathroom to close the door as the toilets stick out. Bathrooms were nice inside when the door was closed and the shower was comfortable as well. We had double beds but you really couldn't fit anything else in the room. Only other thing I did not like is that the parking […] garage is across the street from the hotel. Would probably stay elsewhere the next time but if the rate us right, not a bad place Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The view from the patio was great...the hotel was quiet and the beds were comfy. The bathroom, however, was extremely sub-par. It was not possible to even dry yourself off in the bathroom after your shower. For the price of this room, the bathroom was just terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK, location good, condition not so"
This hotel is getting old and needs a complete renovation. The bathroom was real bad, the carpets worn out. The saving grace was the help, friendly and eager to assist. Location is also a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NON-SMOKER IN SMOKING ROOM"
Overall I enjoyed my stay, but was not aware of a $10 a day charge to have a frig in my room. Also, I asked for a non-smoking room and got a smoking room. The smoking room smelt like a large ashtray and when I asked the front desk if they had any kind of order removal spray they never got back with me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location and hotel are fine, staff was friendly but overall the hotel is just dated......not much they could easily do beyond renovation to fix that. Room itself was decent, but the bathroom was small and old.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room service was very bad. We returning to unmade room no towels. Front desk was not friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First I stayed at the Ramada last year and had a great experience so that is why I chose it again for Spring Break vacation. First of all this Ramada needs to get new front desk staff. The person who helped us was not friendly and very abrupt. The room was clean, but the room was in need of new mattress and the air conditioning was very loud, but thank […] goodness I guess because the guest next door cranked their tv. When telling the same front desk person on check out she again was quite rude. We asked if any of the rooms were sound proof and she said no I don't think so. I wasn't expecting soundproof but at least not to hear the people's tv next door. Pray also that you have people that do not come and go a lot because when those doors close they will wake you up from a sound sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing stay this time"
We have stayed here before and had no complaints this time we requested a refrig and microwave, they did bring refrig but never got a microwave. Upon arrival there was no towels or coffee in the room so we had to call for items to be brought up. Towels were so hard that they hurt to use them. when using the shower 1/ 2 the water was coming into the […] tub instead of out of the shower heads so the shower was not very enjoyable as last stay, we complained about the shower the first day but nobody ever responded. There were no towels in the pool area and it was so crowded in the pool that we got out in about 10 minutes cuz you could hardly move. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Initially we were placed in the room right off the elevator and our toilet overflowed. We were moved to a more appropriate room. The Hotel staff was very helpful. However, the showers were very hot and it was difficult to adjust.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NOT ALL THAT"
THE HOTEL ROOM WAS OK. IT DEFINITELY NEEDS A REFRIGERATOR AND BIGGER BATHROOM. FOR IT TO BE A RAMADA BRAND IT NEEDS TO BE MORE UPDATED. THE POOL AND JACUZZI WAS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, THEY NEED TO BE BIGGER ALSO.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Ramada in at Virginia Beach"
The HVAC in the room was great. Didn't have to mess with it and it didn't keep us up at night. The room was by the elevator and there was a 1" gap at the bottom of the door. We heard the elevator tone whenever someone called it. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the pool and hot tub were very nice. The view was amazing! Overall a […] good stay.

"Location good, customer service needs help"
Hotel attempted to bill me for the price of the room after I already paid in full with hotels.com. Took myself plus the hotels.com rep about an hour to convince her otherwise. Why would anyone pay twice the cost of a room just for the convenience of having a third party make the reservation? I was a pretty weak argument but the hotel service associate […] seemed to find it valid. Overall a win for location and hotels.com's customer service, but a big lose for the Ramada's customer service in my books. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Ramada in Virginia Beach, VA"
The hotel was very clean, but the staff did not go out of their way to be friendly. The room had only one chair and it was uncomfortable. There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room, but you could rent them for a cost, each, per night; while other hotels around them, which did not cost as much, advertised refrigerator and microwave in room, in […] addition to breakfast being included in the price. The oceanfront view was beautiful, and the bed and pillows were the most comfortable we had ever slept on. I only wish the hotel included more amenities which would have made our stay more comfortable. The hotel staff also placed a hold on my credit card for the entire three nights I was there, even though I had prepaid (non-refundable) through Hotels.com. I was told they would only hold a small amount to cover incidental costs, but they charged my card as though I had made the reservations through them and I was told it would take 3 to 5 days before the hold would be released. This is not fair nor ethical business practice and I will never return to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"quick stay at ramada virginia beach"
Good location right on boardwalk with fun bar and sushi restaurant on premises. Staff was polite but very curt and non flexible with request for late check out. Price was right for the quality. Valet was very polite and speedy. Gym was a joke, old and creaky.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I can only say that it was "okay" overall. clean but small room. Loved the balcony and Mahi Mahi but had to call for assistance a couple of times for blankets. Valet the first night was great, not so good the next.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds were comfortable. Decent price. Good shower pressure. That"s about it for the good. The rooms need updating. Had to ask for fresh towels. View of giant black tube shooting out water on the beach. I guess it was overflow from a near by lake or something? Not the most friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Standard Hotel with One Big OOPS!"
It was OK and worth the cost to have the ocean view. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was quite good. Having the indoor pool was nice as well. They failed, however, to clean our room the second day and when reported to the desk when we returned in the evening they said they had no one in the hotel that could clean the room. They did not seem […] particularly concerned one way or the other about it. That is the chance you take when you go to a summer resort hotel in November. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent place for first trip to VA Beach"
The hotel was decent. However, we did not like that the ceilling was peeling and the bathroom was very small. Our door would not unlock at first and they had to send maintenance up. The staff was really friendly and helpful. However, the maid service was just ok. They left cleaning fluid in our room, did not clean out the coffee pot or leave me regular […] coffee on a couple of mornings. And our coffee pot was chippped at the edge which should not have been in the room in the first place. The maids were not detailed oriented in my opinion. Another thing that we did not like was that we had to go out into the lobby in front of the front desk to access the pool area which should have been in the back side of the hotel and offered a more private entrance rather than having to go out in front of everyone dripping wet from the pool near guests that were trying to check in. Just not convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay hotel but not a good beach location"
We were a little worried about staying at this hotel given the reviews. The room was clean and everything functioned fine. We got a lot of help from the concierge who was knowledgeable and courteous. It is extremely hot in the hallway because it is all glass on one side and the afternoon sun beats on it. There is a big pipe on the beach directly behind […] the hotel that spews black sand & water in the early morning (dredged from a nearby inlet). While we enjoyed the ocean in the afternoon, this sand smells bad in the morning and we wouldn't go in the water. Since we are all about playing in the water, I removed a star from my overall rating. The surrounding area is fine but you can always catch the bus to other areas of the beach. We didn't eat at this hotel's restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Front desk employees NOT GOOD!"
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. I took my parents,daughter and grandson. Everything was wonderful except for the check in and check out. We booked two rooms in June 11' and it was for Aug 11'. I requested adjoining rooms on a high floor.When we got there my parents were going to be on a totally different floor and the 2nd floor none the less […] and this is even after I had talked to a front desk lady named Kat two days before we arrived. After two hours of waiting on a room after we arrived and a lot of complaining the staff put us in adjoining rooms on the 5th floor.We were told they gave our rooms away to another person with the exact last name with the exact same circumstances (elderly parents). Yeah right!!Then check out.We stayed an extra day and the bills did not match,we had some charges on my parents bill that did not occur.They had movie charges on their bill.I told the front desk lady if she didn't believe me that they didn't charge a movie to call my parents room and talk with them.She stated "that's what I'm going to do!" How embarrassing for me. I felt terrible by the time this whole ordeal was over. But the actual stay was wonderful. They do not have continetal breakfast,microwaves or refridge in the rooms you have to rent them for 10.00 a day. The beds were wonderful,matter of fact I pulled the sheets of the bed the last day to see what the brand was so I could purchase one when I came home.The resturant was wonderful they had a different band ever night.

On the beach was the best part of this hotel. Overall a clean hotel. Freaked out by the huge waterbug in our room though! "Towel truck" was missing one day and left without towels. Seemed like getting bathroom supplies was luxery...had to call multiple times to get some extras towels...with five people and the need to shower multiple times a day with […] heat and sand...it was a chore to get towels.
