We parked at the Visitors Centre and went for a stroll around the shopping precinct. We stopped at Dolce Vita for a coffee then found a shop nearby that was of interest to both of us. It had a range of Kittyhawk Kites, beach attire and clothing by "Life is Good".

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Virginia Beach
I don't know why this facility is still open for bussiness....I know why, because they have such grate rates, and the most beautiful pictures on the website that they sucker such consumers as myself, my bestfriend, and the many other people that have written a review or stayed there for that matter. I went there early this Jan.(2004) and believe me I was not pleased. Being as though it was barely 20 degress outside, you would think that they would have the heat on in the rooms peopl were checking into. I turned the heat on HIGh at 4:30 and at 7:00 it was still cold, like sitting outside. The front desk guy was rude, the bathroom was dirty, so I had to spend my money and buy something to clean the tiny bathroom, and some air freshner to make the place smell presentable. The fact that you pay your money and can't have guest after 9pm...I am a grown woman and didn't expect to come well over 200+ miles to be given a curfew. Because I was charged for the one night we stayed and the next morning checked out, and went down the street to the marjac suites...This place compared to the wynnwood inn and suites was like a palace. The room was clean, smelled fresh and was warm. From the front desk to the cleaning staff the marjac employees were nice.
I made reservations at the wynnwood inn on the oceanfront. But when i got there to check in the lady and manager that was at the front desk had me waiting about 15 minutes. When they got back to me, they told me that my reservations was that there sister hotel down the street, across from the beach. When I told them that I made reservations here and not down the street, they called me and my wife a liar and told us to go down the street. I went and tried to get my money back and could not, and was told again at the other motel that we were lying. I paid a total of $181 to stay in a piece of trash motel. They treated me and my family so bad. The room was dirty and had a funny order to it and noting works. This hotel is running a serious scam on people, because I meet two more people there that they did the same thing too. I,m going to let the mayor and the better business burea of that city know about this. This has to stop, its not right. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.
we just got back from the beach and we stayed at the Wynnwood Inn, this is the one that is across the street from the ocean on 28th and Atlantic. The room was old and the bathroom door was broken. The main thing that irritated us was the parking. The spaces are set up so that you pull to the front of your space and someone can park directly in back of you BLOCKING YOU IN. When we asked what we were supposed to do if we wanted to use our car , we were told that they would contact the owner of the car blocking ours. When we asked what if the owner could not be reached we were told then I guess you won't be able to use your car until we can reach the other person. While we were in front office to talk about the parking, there was a upset lady who had used the washer and now the dryer would not work and they were rude to her and basically said " sorry cant help you either".
2) Wynnwood Inn and Suites, they showed Tim a nice room to hook us in and then charged each of us $112.38 for very FILTHY rooms, I think ours was the worst all I can say is DO NOT STAY HERE. I will try to get in contact with the CO @ Norfolk, NAS/Navy Base and fill him in. Unfortunately we were left with no choice but to stay where we did, as everything else seemed to be booked. We also heard stories from other fellow travelers who we saw at the Flight Terminal again the following morning that they too had similar accommodations. Some of the soldiers I spoke to, who were on their way back from a long deployment also stated the best part of the night's stay was the shower in the morning, and for the most part they got no rest it must have been from the gunfire they heard in the middle of the night. Stay away, if at all possible, from the East and West Oceanview Ave areas at Norfolk.
What a dump!
Lasy year (2002) I booked this hotel after seeing it on the internet.
It looked nice in the picture but it is very dirty in real life. The dinky pool out front was dirty and green. The rooms were disgusting. I immediately asked for my money back. The manager was very rude and said he was going to call the police because we used the room and made it dirty. I told him to send the police down to the Comfort Inn which is where we ended up staying. Please don't waste your time with this hotel.
Watch out for this one
I stayed in this motel several times when it was under Travelodge management and had no problems. Now, however, it's a new day. My request for a non-smoking room was disregarded and no adjustment or alternate room was offered - although I was moved after one night.
Then, upon checking out I found a fee for the in-room safe added to my bill. When I objected, a small sign in the lobby was pointed out. (I had missed it, but it was there.) Continuing my protest the clerk responded that he could do nothing and I was stuck. Upon phoning to find where I could send a letter of complaint, the manager said it was privately owned and my complaint was brushed off. Next time I'll pay more elsewhere to avoid this shoddy motel's trap.
The users who said that the Wynnwood Suites was over priced was right!
I just came back from Virginia Beach and I stayed there, and it was very dirty. The front desk wasn't helpful, and there wasn't any shampoo or conditioner to wash your hair with. They even laughed when we called the front desk and requested some.
At $149 a night this property was very overpriced. The hotel was dirty and the cleaning people were incompetent. The one and only elevator had no ventilation or air conditioning. Our room was on the 4th floor. We tryed the stairs once but the odor from the stairwell was so bad we could not use this way. The sea side balcony had a single door to go out and that door did not close without kicking it hard. When brought to the management attention they said to go ahead and kick it. The only way to fix it was to replace the door. The water from the roof dripped so badly on the balcony you could not use it in the evening. The bathroom was dirty and we found bugs in the sink. The bath tub took 10 minuets to drain after a shower. The kitchen area was nice but the cupboards had sawdust in them and we were hesitent to use them not knowing what may come throught the hole in the back of the cupboard.
The Big Rip-Off
i made reservations with this hotel and requested a non-smoking room. when i got to my room it was trashed and rinked of smoke. so i asked for my money back and the hotel rufused to do so. shortly there after two more guest walked demanding there money back also. so please if your in the area do not stay in this hotel. it ***!!!

The description on the web site for this hotel looks great
but the place needs a total renovation. Basic amenities, such as a coffee maker and iron were missing. Furniture and kitchen equipment needs to be replaced. A step is missing in the stair well. We borrowed the vacuum
cleaner from the maid and it didn't work. At $149 a night, it was too expensive for missing the basics. The place reminded me of the Hotel Coral Essex in Revenge of the Nerds 2.
