Founders Inn and Spa, Norfolk
Outstanding5.0 / 5
The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was really friendly. The location was good, did not want to stay directly on the beach or in Norfolk, so the location for us was very good. Only 15 minutes from the airport. They offer a hotel shuttle but not before 7 am, so we had to take a taxi. The pool was really nice, however it closed at dusk (around 8pm); it would have been nice if it was open later. The breakfast bar was awesome, good food, great service and reasonably priced. We only ate dinner there once, the buffet was good, but I am not really into buffets so we ate dinner at other local restaurants. I took advantage of the spa services offered, very nice and they were reasonably priced.

The location was great and easy to get to. I was a bit turned off when I walked up to the front desk and no one greeted me OR even made eye contact with me and I was the only guest at the counter with three employees! I had to ask one of them if I could check in!! Not a good first impression! My family and I enjoyed the outdoor pool and the Hunt Room restaurant for dinner. We may return but I would recommend they work on their guest service.

I LOVE This Place!
This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The staff was wonderful. They were so accommodating to allow me to bring my dog for a minuscule fee and there was even a dog park. The grounds and lobby are gorgeous and the rooms are beautiful and clean and that was the most comfortable bed ever. There was a really great restaurant on the premises, a big beautiful outdoor pool with a great slide that stayed open until 11:00 pm with a lifeguard. There was even a really beautiful indoor pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, and there was even a spa that offered all kinds of wonderful spa services. I would love to come back to the Founders Inn and Spa in the future!
