Founders Inn and Spa, Virginia Beach
Excellent4.0 / 5
The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The bed may have been the most comfortable bed that I have ever experienced in a hotel. Tried to eat at the Hunt Club and and the Swan Terrace restaurants but the speed of service left a little to be desired. Very slow even getting acknowledge as patrons so ended up not eating at either place.

Humid Room; Less than Friendly Staff
The day I arrived, Hurricane Hermine was raging outside. Having just driven through it on a motorcycle, I made a quip about "the bad weather outside." The front desk receptionist did everything but roll her eyes. She was irritated, curt and less than polite. Once I arrived at my room and began to unpack, I noticed human hair everywhere - stuck to the toilet seat, stuck to the vanity mirror and on the bed. Later, I discovered a significant amount of water flowing out of the cabinet that housed the mini fridge. Someone had turned it off and, as a result, it had defrosted. I called the front desk. They assured me someone would be there to take care of it. I waited 15 minutes, no one ever came. I finally found a maid who proceeded to use my towels to dry the water up, but inadvertently caused more water to spill out onto the carpet. I was on my way out to meet with friends and when I told her that I had to leave, she seemed put out that I didn't offer to help. When I returned later, the carpet was still wet and the room was humid. It remained that way. No one ever came to check on the refrigerator or ensure everything was OK. When I went to check out, the front desk clerks were friendly, but I could hear two women yelling, laughing and swearing in one of the back rooms. For such a costly stay at a hotel that touts itself as offering "a luxurious atmosphere in a relaxing setting" and "the intimate hospitality of a country inn" I was less than impressed.
