Highly Recommended
My children and I truly enjoyed our stay! The Inn is beautiful inside and out. It is close to many restaurants or you can order room service, your choice! The Inn is also only 20 minutes from the beach and it is a direct route. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone!

Fair2.0 / 5
We stayed here for a conference for a week. They are incredibly understaffed, but everyone they do have working there was super nice and as accommodating as possible. I'm horribly allergic to mold and it's obvious that the carpets had a lot of mold in them.

Staying at The Founders Inn in Virginia Beach
We stayed here because we wanted to tour Regent University. This hotel is right on the college campus. The hotel has a pretty garden and pond with fountain, ducks, swan, and geese. Having the option of using the outdoor pool with slide or indoor pool was fun. There are two places to eat in the hotel plus a coffee shop. The bathroom was really nice and updated and had an additional sink/make-up area outside the bathroom. A really nice feature was that our room had central a/c versus a window unit. There are a lot of fun things to do in the area such as the aquarium, Nauticus, and the Botanical Gardens.

Good3.0 / 5
Hotel has many problems to solve.
We checked in at 3:00am due to flight delay and were told that our room had been given to someone else even though I had called the evening before to report flight delay and the room was for a four night PREPAID reservation. One hour later, we were finally given a room. Housekeeping staff seemed to be out in the halls in good numbers but our room was not cleaned by 8pm on day one, 4pm on day two despite request for early cleaning, 6pm on day three and when I called, all we got a stack of clean towels but no garbage pickup and beds were not even made when we returned at 11pm. Reporting this to hotel staff got little response and my request to speak to the manager got a voice mailbox and no response. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and the Saturday breakfast buffet and Sunday Brunch were great.
