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
This hotel is in disrepair. My thoughts were that they were ready to sell so had stopped doing maintenance. The room was in disrepair and a panel on the wall on the balcony had fallen out and nobody had bothered to even pick it up. The toilet clogged up and gave the unenviable impression of being in Calcutta India in July. We stayed at another hotel […] on Friday night as the Dolphin was booked and my brother and I agreed that hotel was far superior. Would not stay again or recommend.

Beautiful location right on the beach. In room mini kitchen very convenient. Hotel could use some updates though with their stained carpets and stained sofa bed. We stayed for 2 nights but did not get a room clean up during our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
when we booked we were told we would be able to have a smoking room but it appears that the entire hotel is smoke free - a little inconvenient as we had to smoke on the balcony, but the room was clean and staff was wonderful;Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked a smoking room only to find this was a nonsmoking hotel. It turned out OK as they allowed me to smoke on the balcony which was only a minor inconvenience. The hotel is old and well used but it was fairly clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and the living room as it is hard to live in a bedroom all of the time. The internet […] service was terrible. I could not connect most of the time (probably a blessing) and there was very bad cell phone reception most of the time. The hotel staff could not have been nicer and more responsive to our needs. They were great! We truly enjoyed our stay and would return to this hotel. Great value for the dollar and super location.

Lots of room and a friendly staff. Loved the placeGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was superb, staff was friendly, we had requested two rooms next door to each other on the ground floor...that did not happen....we got the third floor, ok....parking really sucked....one elevator for 10 floors of people is unacceptable! Moving in and out to the third floor was terrible.....would not recommend this hotel or stay here again […] in the future! Also, the rugs were disgusting in the rooms, not as clean as we would have liked, couches stained! outdoor furniture was filthy.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean hotel, spacious rooms, cramped parking lot"
Biggest complaint is only one elevator for the entire building. I counted 2 stairwells though, I think they should consider putting in another elevator so you don't have to wait so long for one. (Especially since they were replacing couches during the first two days of my visit so I had to take the stairs 9 floors with 2 toddlers.) Also they have plenty […] of luggage carts but the parking lot is so cramped that there is hardly any way to squeeze it between cars. Maybe use a space as a pathway for luggage carts? Rooms were cleaned, and spacious. We fit 3 adults and 2 toddlers in one room easily. Our jacuzzi was broken and they offered to give us a new room after we had already spent one night, but I didn't want to move all of my stuff to another room when they already knew that the jacuzzi was not working properly. My husband spoke with the manager about our issues and she was very generous and made our stay 100% better! We had stayed last year and liked it enough to come back. And even though this particular stay was not up to par, they made up for their mistake and we'll definitely be coming back again. All rooms are 2 room suites with jacuzzi tubs all ocean front. You can't beat that for the price. Overall I recommend this hotel. Great customer service! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, close to beach and shops!"
Had a great time with 4 kids and hubby, rooms were clean and spacious, jetted tub was the perfect way to end each day.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was nice, large than I expected it to be. The elevator was very slow had to wait almost everytime and usually ended up taking the stairs. Parking is very tight. Need help getting in and out of the parking space and helped guide some other quests getting out of the parking lot.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location poor housekeeping"
The staff in the office was outstanding. I have never met a more professional helpful staff in a hotel. The location was also perfect...we could not have picked a better location. The room on the other hand was not clean. The kitchen floor was gritty, then when a little water was spilled and I cleaned it up the towel turned black. The beds smelled of […] sweat so we didn't even sleep in them we stayed on the couch. Our door didn't close all the way. Last of all the balcony had some sticky residue all over it. We did not complain as we were only there for the night and didn't want to spend out trip changing hotel rooms, and as friendly as the staff was if we had complained I'm sure they would have done their best to help us, but it seems to me the room should have just been up to par with the staff and location for the price we paid.

"Extremely nice staff"
Very pleasant stay. All staff employees were extremely hospitable and friendly. Hotel suite was cleaner than most. Highly recommend. We'll be back!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"convenien of location"
It was OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
location, location, location. It is worth it to stay on the beach with your own balcony overlooking the beach and evening fireworks. Not much parking but front desk people are super nice. There is no lobby but the pool has a great view. Close to the pier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right of the beach"
Plenty of space, great kitchenette, right off the beach, and very homey for a long stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
First time i stayed there good location and loved the jacuzziGenuine Expedia guest review
Worst experience we have ever had staying in a hotel. Smell was horrible, very dirty. Didn't get to the hotel until 1230am had two children that were asleep so we stayed but got up at 7am and checked out of the hotel. Will never stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Like the layout with a seperate room with beds. Worked well for our situation.Genuine Expedia guest review
My room was great, except for the jetted bath tub. It had chipped paint floating every time you put water in the tub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice for family!"
Everything was ok except fpr one night when we returned from an outing, it seemed that someone lowered the heat setting. I loved the jacuzzi! I would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall visit was positive. The sofa needed some work. One of the cushions just sagged down into the couch when you sat on it. Also found a broken pipe in the room when we checked in. That is not the hotel's fault other than not cleaning properly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best location, a bit seedy"
The location was perfect. We appreciated in the in-room jacuzzi. The room smelled heavily of marijuana when we walked in. This is a great place for a beach vacation, where you want to enjoy yourself and not be troubled by lobbies or staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Been coming to Dolphin Inn for 25 yers. Only thing I didn't like was the non fitted sheets on the beds. Kept coming off. The noise of some generator outside was very bad. I think it was across the street so that wasn't the Dolphin Inns fault. Staff was very friendly and took great care of us. Inside heated pool was clean and felt good on a cold day. […] Loved the view from the balcony. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
staff was nice and friendly, rooms were very good and clean. The view was spectatularGenuine Expedia guest review
"Foul Music from clubs near by"
The hotel staff was fine, however the club across the street was so nasty that it woke my 2year old with its nasty foul music. Further, there was no curtian on the bedroom window so the hall light from the hotel shined in the room making it impossible to sleep. I went to the desk and they gave me a huge blanket to put over the window...The beds were […] very uncomfprtable and the pull out was worn out. SO much so that we couldnt sit on the couch with out going almost to the floor. I thought the price was a little high but the view was amazing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great place to stay with family!"
My family and I had a really great time in Va Beach. As for the hotel it was great as well, my kids loved the ocean front view. I would like to bring my family back for a whole week stay next year. Thank you!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stay. Friendly staff. Perfect place for the boardwalk. Right next to entertainment stage.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable prime location"
We arrived almost 5 hours before check in. The staff at the front desk was wonderful. She let us change so we could go to the beach while our room was cleaned, and she had us take a different room so we were checked in by noon. Very helpful in recommending places to eat. Only complaint is not having our room cleaned one day but they took our towels […] and didn't replace them. The parking garage is tricky for parking, but at least no one hit us!

"Nice but needs some tlc."
Room was clean but dated. Needs maintenance upkeep. Looks like it was really noice in its time.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is the first time I ever wrote a review. This is the worst hotel I ever been to. The hotel was dirty. Internet did not work. Bad staff. Rude. Disgusting. You could not pay me to stay in this hotel. Do not go to this hotel. Do not go to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"will stay here again"
pool small max of 12 people, and also indoors, room service is different here, you need to put sign out so they do not wake you up, however they do not come back, if you need towels you call and they will bring them to your roomGenuine Expedia guest review
Will stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Virginia Beach stay"
Hotel itself was ok. But there were things to complaint about like cleanness. the carrying of the garbage in passenger elevator was not very pleasant,hall ways were dirty but overall boder line acceptable. But i think it should be improve...Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to all must see sights"
Was the perfect location-center of everything the rooms were very nice all the staff polite and professionalGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for a decent price"
A nice hotel right on the beach. Rooms are a good size, with more than enough space for my family of five. Pool on the 8th floor is a bit smaller than others on the strip, but still decent. Staff was very friendly and helpful at the drop of a dime. On site parking is good, but wish the upper level was a bit bigger. It was hard getting my larger vehicle […] around the lot at times. Only having one elevator caused some backups at times. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
was not cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not worth the money we paid for and btw they need to replace their sofa beds and their carpets in their roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel room was plenty big, and the staff were completely wonderful. They were extremely friendly and courteous. The pool was a little disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice for the price, the pool was small but to be expected since its on the 8th floor. I didn't care for the layout seem cramped. The parking area was very tight.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been cleaner."
The room we were in this time seemed somewhat worn. We were there for 5 days 4 nights. The first two days we had the 'do not disturb' sign up. The first day we received a call from housekeeping asking if we needed anything. After that we received neither a call or service until the day before we left when I ended up calling down in the evening to ask […] for additional towels and toilet paper. They were quick to bring these items up but I was kind of upset that we never even received a call earlier to see if trash needed to be emptied or if we needed anything replaced. Needless to say, trash was overflowing by the time we left. Was not so thrilled about this stay. I all fairness, everything was great during our previous stays here.

"BETTER YOU WILL NOT FIND"
GREAT LOCATION CENTER OF THE BEACH. CLEAN ROOMS AND ENTIRE HOTEL.Genuine Expedia guest review
"parking was horrible!"
The staff was very nice. The view of the beach was wonderful. The parking was horrible,we came back to the hotel at midnight and there was no place to park, we had to go to a hotel down the street to park! The bathroom floor and tub seemed dirty. No maid service, we stayed 2 nights and no maid came in to make beds or do anything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the Place"
Loved staying there but was a little disappointed with the bathroom. Thought it could use a little makeover. Otherwise very happy with where we stayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the convention center"
It was great....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the room and hotel, great location, within walking distance of all of the attractions. I have had issues with hotels in the area, I will certainly be back to this one!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just what we needed"
The dolphin inn was exactly what me and my friends needed for spring break. Flawless view of the ocean, walking distance to everything you could want, very friendly and helpful staff. The pool isn't very large, but you've got the ocean out the door so it wasn't a problem. Peabody's is in stumbling distance, but the hotel was still rather quiet. For […] the price we paid, I'd be hard pressed to find a better place. We really enjoyed our stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value hotel"
Pleasantly surprised! Only four suites to a floor, noise level was low, staff friendly and helpful, bed was very comfortable. Pool was small but view of the ocean from the eighth floor was a plus. Onsite parking on two levels. Very nice for the price!Genuine Expedia guest review
We originally were going to come with us and our 4 kids, but last minute someone could watch them. It was awesome! We had a great view and just were able to rest. Also we will be bringing our 4 kids back later this month as there was tons of room and walking distance to cool spots. The drive to the edgar cayce institute was great too. Our time there […] was well worth the drive. Also they let us have early check in, which was a godsend after driving from 4am, and we got there at 10, and with no kids we wanted to sleep! The double tub- NOW that was AWESOME! We really enjoyed our time! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My family and I recently stayed at the Dolphin Inn and my only complaint would be the size of the pool, everything else was wonderful. I would recomend the hotel and hotels.com and plan to use them again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Waterfront at a great price!"
My wife and I have stayed here 3 times, all off season, and have been nothing but pleased. With every room overlooking the beach, with a balcony and a hot tub in each room, it makes the perfect romantic getaway. The staff is always friendly and the rooms always clean. I recommend this hotel to all my friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
