The Dolphin Inn, Virginia Beach
Good3.0 / 5
Overall the quality of the hotel was good. The location was very close to the beach and other attractions and shopping areas. However, once we arrived we did have some difficulty checking in. We were charged extra since we apparently had extra people staying in a room which was against hotel policy. Once the issue was addressed again the situation changed and we were apparently charged due to a glitch in the system. After throughly discussing it with management we ended up getting a refund. If you ever need anything make sure to call the front desk. Housekeeping works everyday but make sure to call because occasionally they may skip your room. In the end the size of the room and the view of the beach was very nice. Just a few steps away from the boardwalk so you can easily access the beach.

great neighborhood...everything else was okay
I called and advise we would be checking in late. When I arrived it took quite awhile for someone to come to the door to check us in. Parking is very tight. Saw a few bugs in the room. Toilet paper holder fell off the wall.

Family Vacation
Researched hotel before arrival. Pretty much everything was true. Slow elevators, old furniture, run down appearance and terrible parking. However, it was great for my family of five. Right on the beach and near everything. The Dolphin is not a luxury hotel but it served the purpose of being right on the beach, WiFi worked, TV's worked, AC worked. Not much else to complain about.

Not really happy
We were excited about staying there. Then we got in our room and started putting our things away in the kitchen area and realized there was water leaking in one of the cabinets and there was some mold and mildew. It was also leaking under the sink. We called the front desk and they sent someone up. He told us he was going to see if he could get moved to another room. We never heard anything from them. So I called the front desk and was told there wasn't any more rooms available but they would give us a full refund if we wanted to go to another hotel. Or would take 15% off our bill. We checked up and weren't able to find another one on the boardwalk for that night. So we just took the 15% off. We were only going for one night. My daughters and I took my Granchildren down for a night and although they had a good time this part of the trip kind of put a damper on the trip. We learned the pool guy had over-filled the pool which was on the 8th floor above us. And it had trickled down thru the floors above and had made it's way down to the 5th floor also where we were. The main thing was my grandchildren had a good time. But I wouldn't stay there again
