Yes this place is a bit run down. It's a no frills place but it's cheap!! Really central location, we walked everywhere in a few minutes. Bed sheets were changed every day and we got fresh towels every day too. No complaints. I would stay again.

Hotel's Favourite
I moved away from the area some time ago, and I knew this place was near to the beach/"drag strips" of Atlantic and Pacific Avenues, so I expected night noise. My adult son and I went down to visit a relative, and stayed here in separate rooms. It's a downscale hotel, not 5-star by any stretch, but I would rather stay in a place like this, anyway. I'm not a 5-star person. Our rooms were fine, the noise level wasn't bad in the hotel or on the street (but it was January at the beach, to be fair), and we were perfectly comfortable. The housekeeping staff was fine with us not wanting our rooms cleaned till we left. We stayed for 3 nights. We had rooms beside each other, and my newly minted adult did not bother me with his young adult noise in his room (TV, music, food deliveries). I'd absolutely stay there again. I don't expect to need to, until an event eventually happens, and I hope I'll be able to bring my cat with me at that time, as it might (or might not) be an extended stay. I clicked "not sure" about irons or safes or hair dryers, as I didn't need those, so didn't notice or pay attention.

A very good place to spend a week especially with the kitchenette option. We saved a lot by preparing some of our meals whilst in VA beach. The microwave was a bit small so do not pack extra large plates to warm up food. We had to buy a large plastic tray to drain the dishes since none was provided. Maid service was good when we needed fresh towels and we were thankful for that. The beds are very comfortable and the AC worked well. Shower was nice and also clean. The only suggestion for management is that they must enforce the rules to guests who like to be outside after 11.00 pm. Those folks need to be mindful of their loud conversations which we heard one night next to our room. The front desk staff are friendly and check-in was fast as well as check-out. Good parking here also and only a short walk to the beach,

Stayed here for 3 nights...overall was a good stay....several minor things thou...room could have used a little more deep cleaning...but bathroom was clean..bed was as well and was comfortable...staff was friendly and restocked my towels and such every day. I would also say that they really need to consider lowering the height of the speed bump in their parking lot...way to high for many vehicles, hence all the scrape marks on it. You will be within a decent walking distance of the beach,shopping, and eating. However do not count on the McDonald's next door others have spoke about... it's been torn down.

Found a roach in the room was offered a refund to get me out the door when I called bc I hadnt gotten it the girl argued said she never said that said maintenance didnt find anything so accused me of showing a picture than when I asked for a manager she continued to hang up on me. I will be calling the health department I've emailed everything I can they have 0 customer service and sam is just nasty all together.

Very, very bad. Will not stay again, please learn from my mistakes. This hotel is scary, dirty and when I say dirty I mean filthy. I don't think they cleaned the room AT ALL. The fridge had leftover food, there was a open ketchup packet on the floor, and also pieces of glass. It also smelled like a overflowing ashtray, it's the hotel of your worst gory, slash movie/nightmare. In house complimentary entertainment us free in the form of cops, EMT and fights all night.

I have stayed here many times at least 6-7. It was always okay, not upscale like some other hotels, but clean and welcoming. This last visit was not good at all. When I arrived I had to call maintenance the bathroom door was locked. After he left we discovered dirty wash clothes in the bathtub. The microwave was so disgusting I would not even touch it you could see the grease on the outside. We had the efficiency room and the kitchen felt uncleaned, they did leave sanitizer out so I could have cleaned it myself. I know with everything Covid things are different, but it would have been nice to know they were not going to clean the room, i had to empty the trash and see the dirty wash clothes left from the person before us all weekend. When I checked out I mentioned my visit and the lady who was working that morning did not care. I even told her I will not comeback or recommend their hotel any longer. Her response was okay have a nice day. Not even an I am sorry. So disappointed.

As soon as we pulled in, it didn't meet our expectations formed by the pictures provided. The parking lot was cramped and dirty. The lot is also used by non-guests who pay $5 to park there. Housekeeping was throwing bags of trash off the 3rd floor balcony down onto the parking lot. It appears as part of the property is used as long term stay rooms. After checking in we took our belongings up to our room. The elevator smelled like it was being used as a restroom and someone had just been smoking in it. Our room was dirty and smelled. The flooring was dirty and had stains. There were cigarette ashes and french fries on the floor between the bed and nightstand. A dirty paper towel was in the nightstand drawer. A used towel was hanging on the back of the bathroom door. The kitchenette had no pots and pans or dishes or silverware. Appliances were all dirty..... After being there for about 20 minutes, we decided we just couldn't stay. When we went to the desk to say we wanted to check out, they had no care as to why, but only said "put your keys in the check out box, and you can go". We then drove another 6 hours to go back home and didn't have our family vacation at Virginia Beach afterall :(

My daughters have stayed at this hotel several times but this was our first time. The staff was very nice, the rooms were spacious and clean. It isnt a fancy hotel but it was cheap a 5 minute walk to the beach and the kids loved the pool. We had a 2 bedroom and one of the beds need replaced due to wear but it wasnt so uncomfortable that we could not sleep in it. This is where we will be staying every time we visit VA Beach. The only negative about the hotel is the speed bump coming into the parking lot it is way to high and we drug our car terribly throughout our visit we heard a lot of cars dragging that does need to be fixed but other than that wonderful stay.
