The Best, Period!
This was by far my best experience in VA Beach. The staff has gone above and Beyond to provide outstanding customer service.
Very nice place
We stayed at the residence Inn weekend of April 1st 06 and loved it. All the positive reviews here are very true. The staff are very nice and courteous. The rooms are spotless and the views can't be beat, all the rooms are ocean front. Both the living room and bedroom have breathtaking views of the ocean. The Kitchen is complete and very clean. Bathroom is clean and housekeeping is very efficient. We had a minor and quite usual in-house problem that was fixed within five minutes of reporting. The parking is limited but they have ample space shared with the Sheraton down the street for which they offer free valet, but it is barely 5 minutes of nice stroll to get your car if you so prefer, I did that all the time. If you are travelling with kids, look no further, this is the place. They will be very comfortable (in addition to fixing their own waffles and a bowl of cereal at the restaurant in the morning). The stay is equally romantic for couples.
(I felt compelled to say there is absolutely no comparison between this place and the 'new' Hilton down the street where a previous reviewer said they checked out of the residence inn and went to. Out of curiosity we went there too to check it out, (I am a Hilton honors member and have stayed in countless of them). Don't be taken in, this particular residence inn has it all.)
Keep it up Residence Inn VA beach, great job!
Wonderful Hotel - Wonderful Staff - Pet Friendly!
My husband, two children (9 & 2) and I came here for spring break (took the children to Williamsburg, Jamestown, Norfolk, etc.). The parking is scarce - but they have "free" valet parking and all you have to do is call down 15 min ahead and they bring the car around for you. The lobby was spotless, actually I was quite surprised how clean the hotel was (in spite of all the dogs) - which my 2 year old loved! They did have elevator problems ONE DAY out of the 7 we were there - but they took care of it in one afternoon, other than that we didn't have to wait long for the elevators (we were on the 5th floor). The rooms are spacious and very clean, the staff was "extremely" friendly - too friendly for my husbands sake. The free breakfast (hot and cold) was great and they even had evening "socials" M-Th with various foods; pizza, BBQ (hamburgers - hotdogs), Nacho Bar, etc. The views from the rooms are GORGEOUS and I was very surprised how Virginia Beach had cleaned up "especially the board walk". If the weather could have been a bit warmer!!! I have been a travel agent for over 13 years and traveled quite extensively and this was a beautiful hotel - the Hilton two blocks down - was over $100 more a night and I could not imagine any better service (and I have stayed at many). I would definately recommend this hotel.
Not what I had expected
I must first off say, this hotel looks very nice from the outside. The things just got even worse from the time I first arrived to the hotel. There was a parking lot in front of the hotel and with no parking spaces left and I had to park 2 blocks down to get a parking space. The lobby smelled like urine and stale smoke combined. Our family got checked in but one of the rudest desk clerks I had ever had to handle. There were very slow elevators in the entire hotel. Our room was located on a low floor and was a smoking room, and we had requested a higher floor and a non-smoking room. The room assigned smelled of pet urine, I think because the hotel allowed pets. There was barely a hint of lysol, or any cleaning material. The view from the balcony was great and we could see the ocean and boardwalk. Nice location. The price we paid for three nights was definitly not what I had expected. I left after the first night and went to the Hilton down the street which is a much better hotel. I wouldn't stay here again, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
This place is unbelievable
I am here on military orders. I was going to stay at the Residence Inn for a week until I could get into an appartment, but have decided to stay here at thr Residence Inn for the next 18 months. The stay is the nicest I have ever met and the hotel is absolutely beautiful. I am a Major in The US Army and have been traveling for 23 years and have never been so comforatable in a hotel. The bedroom window is all glass, so it feels like being on a cruiseship. I lay in bed and see the ocean. There has even been a humpback whale out there all week. Thank you to my new family at the Residence Inn!!
Great place to stay for a month
My husband and I moved to Virginia Beach and needed a place to stay for 4 weeks until we closed on our house. This hotel was perfect. It was like having an Oceanfront apartment with maid service. The staff was wonderful and treated us like royalty. We got hugs when we left. We really felt part of the family. They have laundry facilities on site and an awesome free breakfast every day.
Beautiful and Clean!
I stayed at this hotel over the holiday. The suites are beautiful and they are ALL oceanfront. Also, the suites have full kitchens with all cooking and eating utensils needed in order to make a meal. I was very impressed with the Free Breakfast Buffet because of the selection! The staff really made me feel at home. I would definitely come back!
Great Family Hotel
We came to Virginia Beach to spend time with family members that live here. The suites were so convienient that our family spent more time at the hotel that we did at there house. They even let us hang a wreath on the door. What an excellent hotel with wonderful employees. Thank you for a great Christmas.
Hotel had a very friendly staff with wonderful suites. The room had a full kitchen that was very convienient. The pool was warm and they have washers and dryers for customer use. Thank you for a great time for me and my family. PS Great breakfast!

... for poor visibility we were ducking in and out of the channel to avoid Navy traffic.
During the trip down anything that wasn't fastened down below ended up on the floor in the salon. Left Annapolis at 2 Monday and arrived at Top Rack Marina at about 2 this afternoon. Rewarded ourselves with a great dinner out at the Amber Lantern Restaurant. Early to bed. Up at 5:30 tomorrow to get underway at first light.
... the next day!
We took a walk along part of the 3 mile boardwalk in Virginia Beach - what a disappointment! I read somewhere it's been named one of Top 10 Boardwalks so we were looking forward to it. It's nothing more than a bare, wide, concrete, ( yes concrete, not a board insight) highway with 1970's style boring hotels fronting it. No planters or flowers, some grass & plants but absolutely no ...
A trip to Virginia is apparently not complete without visiting Virginia Beach, a popular tourist spot about 2 hours away from the Michaels'. Beth and I packed snacks and sunscreen, towels, books and sunnies and set off for a day at the beach. It was the same direction as Williamsburg, so the road was starting to look familiar. I still enjoyed watching the tall green oaks whizzing by on the side of the road! Easily entertained :) We chatted and ...
... was no sign of it in the cars, the bar..nothing. But what could I do... We carried on our day. Dipan made us an adorable breakfast. He made us pancakes and actually squeezed oranged to make juice! He's such a sweetheart. We spent the rest of the day napping, going to Kristina's pool, Chipotle, Ice cream (Dipan was my sugar daddy since my wallet was lost ;). We went back to Dipans to clean up for dinner, later at Outback by the river. We moved the clothes by where I ...
We had a great time at the water park with all of the dance team. Water slides, lazy river, Wave pool, partly cloudy. It was great. We all had pizza for dinner afterward. Was a long day of sun and fun.
On Tuesday, was more dance competition, Em did not have ...
