    Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites Virginia Beach Oceanfront

    THis was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!!!

    from

    GOsh, Where do I start? THe place smelled awful, dirty. THE pool, which I specifically needed in case of rain, felt like it was in a basment, chippped paint, never saw a filter going and smelled awful.

    THe frig. didn't work properly, I had to use my cooler. Also, I sliding glass door didn't work 5 times, and the 4 time we had to call maintenance at 11:00 at night to fix it.

    The front desk people were pleasant, but never helpful or went out of their way.

    I tried to pay in full the night before with traveler"s check. I couldn't even pay, even though I had my cc on file. She told me to come back after midnight. I was leaving at 5:00 and didn't have time to do that!

    I wouldn't complain if I had paid under 100.00 a night for this hotel, but I paid 159.00 a night and their were other places nicer.

    OH..and a real good one. 8:57 a.m. HOusekeeping knocks on your door and wakes you up!!!!! Oh..that's why I took my vacation now!

    I just came back 1 hour ago and felt it was imperative I write a review.

    I also polled 8 other families/ couples. Everyone said they would never come back if it was free.

    Unfortunately, once you get there, it was impossible to find availability at the hotel (s) we liked for the nights we needed, so we were stuck!

    Once again, I apologize for your unpleasant stay and any inconvenience we may have caused you. Please feel welcome at our hotel in your future travels.

    Sincerely,

    Would not go back

    from

    I was not at all pleased with my stay at the Howard Johnson. I had read the reviews prior to going, and was expecting only a moderate hotel. However, I would not say that this hotel is worth the $150-$200/night that it charges. My biggest problem with the hotel was the cleanliness of the room. Our bathroom had a big mold problem, which made it hard to feel clean taking a shower. The bathroom floors also needed a serious cleaning. There were other things that were not up to par in the room also - like the broken door lock, dirty carpet, and the broken adjoining room door. Upon check in I immediatly complained to the front desk. The lock was fixed the next day, but the bathroom was never cleaned to my satisfaction. Since they frequently sell out, I did not get the impression that the manager cared too much about what customers think ( I spoke with him directly). I would not stay at this hotel again - you may save a little bit of money, but it's worth it to go elsewhere.

    My hope is that you will allow us another opportunity to serve you.

    Kind Regards,

    For the price, it can't be beat.

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the HoJo's for three nights. We wanted a cheap little getaway, and that's what we got. We had a little difficulty figuring out where to drive into to check in, but we were resourceful and made do by pulling into the dead end street to the right of the hotel near the entrance to the parking garage.

    The first morning we woke up and realized our cable was out, called down to the front desk, and practically by the time I hung up the phone, a repairman was at the door. He supplied us with a new working TV within 15 minutes.

    The only strange thing that happened was that we got woken up in the middle of the night by some random person asking if we had seen "four biker guys". Naturally we said no, and heard nothing else about it. There were some partying girls above us, but we weren't really disturbed by them.

    Basically, if you're looking for a room right on the beach, with a beautiful ocean view; within walking distance to the restaurants, shops, and bars; a clean place to hang out while you're not on the beach; staff that respect the Do Not Disturb sign; something that costs less than most of the oceanfront hotels during the peak season, then stay here.

    Coffeemaker, fridge, and hairdryer in each room. Plenty of towels, cups, ice, drink machines, etc. Fresh shampoo and stuff everyday. A nice little shop with towels and boogie boards and souvenirs. We didn't visit the restaurant, it seemed a little pricey, but the menu looked good.

    If you're looking for a 4 star hotel without any flaws, then you can stay at the Courtyard Marriott for about twice the cost of this hotel per night. You get what you pay for. You can't expect Waldorf-Astoria perfection for less than $150 a night - but you can expect a respectful and efficient staff, beautiful views, sufficient amenities, and fairly well- hidden cosmetic defects.

    I wouldn't stay again if it were free...

    from

    This was about the worst hotel we've stayed in for a long time.

    Check in was a bit tough, since the signs pointing to the check-in parking weren't easily visible from the driver's side of the vehicle. (When you pull in the garage, there is a sign, but it's on the passenger side. On a minivan or SUV, you can't see it until you're back out into the street).

    Parking was tight, but no more so than other hotel garages. After we got our room keys, and lugged all the bags to the room (no bell service seemed to be available), our assigned room was already occupied by 6 people having some sort of party. I quickly apologized for the intrusion, and went back to the lobby (and had to leave my family waiting in the hallway while this got straightened out). Couldn't get an elevator to save my life, so we just decided to schlep up and down the stairs the whole time we were there. The smell of urine was overpowering in the stairwells, and I got stopped by three people in the hallway asking to use my key to get into the restrooms. I also had to navigate between several groups of unsupervised kids playing basketball in the hallway, and bouncing tennis balls on a door.

    Got another room key, for a room 2 doors down. (#217) All rooms have an ocean view, but ours had clearly seen better days. Peeling wallpaper all around, and the bathroom, while it had a granite countertop, had a cigarette burn on the countertop. I didn't think that was possible with granite. The toilet rocked back and forth (probably a broken flange), and the shower was hideous. There was a HUGE hole in the wall that had been badly repaired, and there was still a gap between the tile and the drywall repair (which looked more like stucco, there was so much goop in it).

    After a long day at the beach (and ready to hit the bed), it turned out that we were directly above an outdoor bar that had live (LOUD) music. Even with all the doors and windows tightly closed, we still had to listen to (and feel) the music. At 10:30, I called down to the front desk, and they offered to move us to another floor, but since the band was scheduled to stop at 11, I declined. It would have been more trouble to get the kids dressed than just to ride it out.

    Substandard in all respects. If you want to be right on the beach, it has the right location, but I'd suggest bringing earplugs, your own bedding, and a can of Lysol.

    Once again, I apologize for your unpleasant stay and any inconvenience we may have caused you. Please feel welcome at our hotel in your future travels.

    I was pretty impressed...........................

    from

    I stayed here in April 04. I really liked this hotel for the price.It was far cheaper than anywhere else i have ever stayed on the beach. My room was average but the oceanfront balcony was nice and they had cool emenities in the bathroom (good shampoo and conditioner that smelled like Paul Mitchell, mouthwash and extra lotions). It was kinda noisy though in the morning with construction work going on. I did however LOVE the little store that is in the Hotel, they had just about everything i needed the 4 days i was there and nothing was over- priced.I enjoyed my stay here. I would definately stay here again.

    A Super Deal!!

    from

    We haven't found a better value on the beach! No, you don't get many frills, but this is a fine place to stay with a family. The management is very responsive if you have a problem.

    BEWARE

    from

    Beware, if you are going to Virginia Beach - Stay away. This place is a dump. Rooms are filthy, over priced, employees are rude. Lobby even looks like some sort of jungle. The parking garage is a mess. Please take me advice and stay somewhere else.

    Today was a bit better

    Today has been a significantly better day. We had a relatively easy load in, with a dock that supported eight trucks. There was little use for a forklift because everything could be pushed off the trucks. The main LED screen went in in almost record time, so there was plenty of time for me to build and place my side screens.

    Barely after lunch I was informed that the dock was ready for my last set of LED screens to be assembled. They take ...
