Fairfield Inn & Suites Virginia Beach Oceanfront
Travel Blogs from Virginia Beach
Arrived in Virginia at 9 in the morning with only about 3 hours sleep. I had to take a couple of hour nap in order to make it through the day, but it worked. I was able to go 9 holes of golf with my Son, Eric and my Grandson, Justin this afternoon.
A wonderful dinner of steak, mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, all prepared by my grandson.
It was a great way to start this trip. I am looking forward to a great time with the family. ...
... receive the mark of irresponsibility- a neon yellow tag that screams in large letters "LATE CHECK IN." The attendant informs me my luggage is "not guaranteed" since it arrived so late. I shrug, head to security and make it to my gate as the first group is boarding. Fewf. I'll at least make it to NC today. I sleep for much of the 5hour flight to our layover in Baltimore, and make some small talk with the ladies sitting next to me. One woman asks what I'm doing in ...

Well, in our rush to get her out before the sun set we forgot that the dinghy outboard was in heated storage at the marina. Doggone it! The car was already packed to the roof, now I need to fit an outboard inside???
It's great to see her without all the snow and ice and with the bimini up. The ...
... south. Still a little chilly, but NOTHING like Canada! Ocean City was where we happened to find ourselves following a van that apparently had a 'blind person' driving, wtf. Cracked us up!! We reckon we may have driven a similar vehicle at times.
We crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel which is a dual span bridge of Maryland, 23 miles (37kms) with a ...
... this cost?!
Ah, the million dollar question. Or should I say $20,000? Initially I saved $10,000 over the course of five years. Then I was blessed with another job offer while temporarily living with my parents. This allowed me to bank another $10,000 within six months. Vaccinations cost $1,000, visas totaled $800, and airline tickets came to $6,500. Once on the road, I tried to stick to a budget of $30 a day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites Virginia Beach Oceanfront
Best Hotel In Virgina Beach
Facility and rooms are extremly clean. Staff is great! They go out of their way to make sure that your stay is pleasureable. A wonderful contential breakfast is provided daily. Free high-speed wireless internet was very much appreciated. On my next visit to Virginia Beach....the Fairfield Inn will be my first and only choice.
My family stayed here in two "king studio suites" the weekend of June 11-12, while two of my teenage kids played in the Sand Soccer tournament. In past years, we have stayed at other Oceanfront hotels (the Ramada Inn and the Clarion, both near 6th St.), and this Fairfield Inn was far superior in every way. It was cleaner, the furnishings were nicer, everything worked (except the in-room wireless Internet, which wasn't cooperating while we were there), nothing was broken or out of service, there was a nice free breakfast included, and the hotel staff seemed to actually understand the concept of customer service. All this is in contrast to our other Oceanfront hotel stays. Because this hotel is so new, it hasn't had time to sink to the abysmal level of most of Virginia Beach's hotels. I sincerely hope that the management does its job and maintains what they have. Our king studio suite had a great king bed and a separate living area with a queen-size sleeper sofa. There was a small refrigerator and microwave. My only complaint was that our two rooms on the 4th and 3rd floors were on the very end of the hotel, right next door to a nightclub-type restaurant, where a man with a guitar and powerful amps sang and played until well after midnight both weekend nights. If you like peace and quiet, avoid the rooms on the north end of the hotel, like 301 and 401. I also gave this hotel four stars instead of five because I think it was overpriced, even considering what an improvement it is over other Virginia Beach hotels. $239 per night for a Fairfield Inn, no matter where it is, is too much in my opinion.
Great Hotel to take the family
We spent a week at Fairfield Oceanfront and enjoyed immensely. The location was great. The rooms were clean. The kids loved the pool and the beach - just a few steps away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was the temp on our refridgerator, which was fixed promptly. When we ran into the maintenance man in the hall, he remembered us and asked to make sure all was OK.
We would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Decor, great location
I stayed here with a couple of my friends and we loved the hotel, it is brand new and looks great. I thought it was slightly expensive for what you got, but i would recommend.
Enjoyed our stay for the most part
We just came back from a recent stay and the first night was great. Breakfast here is fantastic! A lot of choices. Everything was delicious. The ladies working the breakfast buffet are nice and always smiling. After two nights in Williamsburg, the kids wanted to head back to the beach, so we returned to this hotel. Staff is REALLY friendly and helpful. On day two we never received housekeeping so we were without towels, etc . . . Had to call the front desk for that so we could take showes to go out to dinner. The kids liked the pool, the view is awesome and the location is great on the boardwalk. Would most likely stay again . . .M
Terrific Hotel Right on the Beach
We stayed 2 nights at the Fairfield Inn and Suites (May 22-24, 2005). The hotel is right on the beach (in the middle of the boardwalk). The location is fabulous, right near the beach, restaurants, shopping. The room was fabulous. We stayed on the 9th floor which gave an excellent view of the boardwalk, beach, ocean. The sunrise was amazing! So overall we loved this hotel - very clean, very comfortable bed, breakfast included, great amenities, very friendly and helpful staff, and a AAA rate.
I just returned from one of several overnight stays during the months of January/February. My initial stay went well, the room was clean, the bed linens, etc. Unfortunately, in my subsequent stays I experienced cleanliness issues as well as service issues. The rooms were not as soundproof as one would expect given the caliber of the hotel. The occupants of the room next to ours were very loud, slamming doors, and had young children who were very loud. When I called the front desk they advised they were full. When I insisted, they called back and moved us to another room, however the room they transferred us to was NOT a non-smoking floor or room. Guests were smoking in the hall. In addition, when we moved to the new room we found that it was not clean. The night table between the two beds had some sort of sticky mess where someone had obviously spilled something and it had not been cleaned up and the bathroom vanity had not been cleaned. I mentioned this when checking out and received a "Sorry about that". My recent visit occured 3 days after that visit, and it seemed that the room was very clean, however when I pulled back the bedspread, I found that the sheets were crumpled and the corner of the fitted sheet was not pulled over the bed. There was also body hair on the sheets. I walked down to the front desk and they advised they weren't sure if they had any other rooms available, I advised that if they would provide clean sheets, that I would make the bed myself. The front desk person handed me clean sheets and as an afterthought advised she would take the movie charge off my bill.
Great value at the beach!
We stayed at this hotel in December for the holidays. We didn't really know what to expect since we have never stayed at a Fairfield Inn before. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was super-clean and very spacious. The view from the balcony was amazing! The next time we visit Virginia Beach, we will definitely stay here again!!!
Beautiful New Hotel
Hotel and service was great. The location is perfect for enjoying the beach and for being close to everything. Loved the free continental breakfast !
