Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Oceanfront Virginia Beach
Very nice hotel - good value for $$
Very nice hotel at south end of beach. Check-in was a little slow, but everything else was above expectations. Every afternoon they have "tea time at the beach" by the pool with snow cones one day, root beer floats the next, etc. free for all guests. Pool is clean, and large enough for everyone. Room was ok, quiet, comfortable. Front desk personnel were helpful, friendly, as were all maids. I will stay there again! Much better value than the high dollar rooms just a few blocks up the beach. Can easily walk to shops, restaurants.
Not worth the price...
I wouldn't stay here again. The rooms are very old, musty and mildewy smelling, small and not very clean. It was definately not worth the money that I paid for the room and the view wasn't that great. I would suggest looking elsewhere along the strip you can find better for a better price I'm sure.
I was very pleased with the hotel and would stay there again. The hotel was kept clean, the staff was very helpful and pleasant, the location was great, and the complimentary breakfast was good. Had a great room on the 6th floor oceanfront, with tv, frig, coffee pot, hair dryer, and free morning newspaper. The only thing that was annoying were the mosquitos that keep getting in the room whenever we opened the balcony door. A slide screen would have been nice so we could have kept the balcony door open.
Great Place! Good place for kids!
I used this site to find a hotel and wanted to return the favor to
others by writing about my vacation. I read about this hotel before I
went so I will try to comment on as many things as I can in relation to
what others have experienced.
Spent 5 days (8/10-8/15/2003). The hotel is just what it advertises.
The room was very clean, had a small frig, safe, coffee pot and a great
ocean view from the balcony, even though it was only "partial view". I
would say it is typical of a 3 star hotel - not luxurious, but very
comfortable and clean. I was on the top (6th) floor and think the
higher up you are the better the ocean view. However, first floor
patios open directly onto the pool and seemed to be popular with
families for the convenience. Kids kept bikes, boogie boards, etc right
on the patio and had easy access to the boardwalk and beach and didn't
have to lug stuff through the halls, up elevators etc. However, I
preferred the view and gladly carried all my stuff!
The pool and deck are the best on the boardwalk - large and lots and
lots of lounge chairs - many of the surrounding hotels had very small
pools with fewer chairs. The "U" shape of the hotel allows for this
large pool, and no other hotel was set up this way. The breakfast was
donuts, bagels, juice, coffee, cold cereal and some fresh fruit - take
my advice and take the tray from under your coffee pot and bring the
food back to your room - we spent mornings on our balcony reading the
free USA Today, eating, and watching the dolphins go by - talk about
From what contact I had, the staff was great - so many of our needs were met we never asked for anything. The room was thoroughly cleaned daily and we were given plenty of fresh towels. Even though I didn't have kids with me, this seemed like a great place for them. The pool was large (allowed rafts, etc in it) and each day at 3 PM they offer a different thank you treat on the pool deck-one day snow cones,another day ice cream floats, then popcorn etc - really a hit with the kids! On Wednesday night they brought 3 TV's onto the deck and showed a G rated DVD and gave out popcorn and soda - nice break for the parents.
The indoor pool is directly across the street but I never even went
over there, so I can't comment on it. The parking is in a garage also
across the street - we arrived on Sunday and easily got parking. We
never moved the car all week so I don't know if it became full, but I
did not hear anyone complaining.
Which brings me to location - for us it was ideal. We were out of the
main crush of the boardwalk, but still had everything within easy
walking distance. Walked to the marina and took a dolphin boat - only a
few blocks. 6 blocks or so and we were at the fishing pier. Shops,
rides etc very easily withing walking distance on the boardwalk. Volley
ball and lots of kites every night on the beach right in front of the
hotel - fun to sit and watch.
The little store across the street opens at 9 AM and had everything -
munchies, ice, beer, self care items, etc. We ate at lots of the
surrounding restaurants and never had a bad meal. If you like sushi, I
would recommend Mahi Mahi, the food was delicious. At the 7th street
stage on the boardwalk (right next to the hotel), they have live music
every night - we had several dinners sitting outside listening to the
music, only steps from our hotel! Wed night was karaoke, and seemed to
be wildly popular. Did I mention VB puts off fireworks on Wed? Again,
just lots to do. You can rent bikes, beach chairs, etc from the stand
on the pool deck - very handy.
Yes, the ocean is cold this summer and their has been lots of rain, but
I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone
who is looking for a clean, friendly, reasonably priced hotel (for
ocean front in high season) that isn't so huge you get swallowed up.
The staff were working their tales off everytime I saw them and seemed
dedicated to making sure we had a good time. It worked!
I really can't think of anything negative to say!
Had a good time at the Quality Inn and Suites. Our king room was roomy enough for two and overlooked the ocean. It is getting a little worn but was clean. The location is good, on the boardwalk but near the end so not as much noise. The outdoor pool is overlooking the ocean, which is a plus. The indoor pool, however, is across the street so we never went. Really enjoyed the "Sunday is for Sundaes" ice cream treat served by the hotel staff.
Junior Suite: Probably could find better else where
Family of 6 stayed at this hotel in the Junior Suite for 5 days.
Disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. First day noticed cigarette burns and stains on a bed spread (note: nonsmoking room).
Closet door broken, and off track. We did have a full bathroom and a half bath which was a plus. Bathrooms with dust at baseboards, and not the cleanest. They advertise on the net, all rooms with a balcony--let me tell you a secret--the Junior Suites have no balconies, and have no windows that open to hear the ocean or get fresh air. The indoor pool is across the street, which is not a plus with small children. The continental breakfast offers minimal food, and is the same daily with no menu change. The line did get long to use the toasters, which backed the entire breakfast line into the hallway. We did not have a problem with parking across the street, but did notice a lot of hotels with parking garages attached. Oh, and the biggest surprise is that only partitions (paper thin) separated you from the next suite. Apparently this was one large area that they partitioned off as suites. Yes, you can hear your neighbor's kids scream, TV, and conversation. Thankfully a family was in the room next to us, because if a group of young adults partying next to us would have been a disaster in the making. Needless to say, our children are older (teens) and had fun on the beach.
Sometimes you have to make the best of a mediocore thing--although I will continue to go to VB, but look for another hotel.
Fantastic place, clean,fancy,good location
This is a very classy place, not like some others we have stayed in.Our room was immaculant.They have all you need. The office staff is super to your needs.The outside and inside lobby is decorated beautifully.You do have to park in a parking garage across the street, but the places are very big and I had no problem with it.The staff is great. It does cost a little more to stay there than others,but it is worth it.There is a sports bar and restaurant in the motel with great food and drinks.A newspaper is delivered to your door every morning.There is a beautiful breakfast room with a continental breakfast every morning. It is a little past the noisy strip which makes it even better.I do not think it is run down at all as someone said before.
Not so hot...
The good point of the hotel was that it was on the waterfront. They tend not to share the whole story when you reserve and check-in to the hotel. The indoor pool is across the street from the hotel and very small. The rooms are a bit cramped but workable. Starting to get run down. Everything about it was mediocre to below. There is parking in a lot across the street but if it is full, you need to park in the street which didn't make me feel that comfortable. That is when I got my first experience with the front desk people being not to forthcoming or friendly. It continued throughout my stay. For the price you pay, its not worth it.A good point, the bell service and maid service was great.
Very friendly and helpful.
Great Family Place
Went to Virginia Beach 15 Years ago and said I would never go back, I thought it was like spring break in Ft. Lauderdale. Boy was I surprised how the area has changed. Great for families. We had a great time and the hotel was fantastic. The staff was great and the location, I can't say enough about. We are going back in a week to the same hotel and my daughter and friends just got back a month ago from this hotel and said it was still great. I recommend it highly
Wonderful, Wonderful june12-16-2002
Wegot into vb late hotel were full and we were so tired. The nightauditor was very nice he got us to a nice clean room and then called to make sure everything was ok for us.
