Historical Traveler Reviews Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center
Great Place Overall
The Virginia Beach Resort Hotel is a great place to stay. The hotel is not located on the Chesapeake Bay, not the Oceanfront. The rooms were large enough to walk around in. The balcony overlooking the bay was wonderful, especially at sunset. The restaurant downstairs Tradewinds had good food for us to eat. Overall we would stay here again.
Nice and roomy Hotel
We travel to the Va Beach Resort every September and have enjoyed it! The rooms are very roomy and clean. The only thing I don't like is that this hotel is in the middle of two big condos that are super close and you really don't have a lot of room.
we loved this hotel resort. it was a wonderful room with a great view of the chesapeak bay. even if you do not choose this hotel. resort for your stay i do recomend a nice dinner in thier restruant Trade winds. it is hard to see from the outside but on the first floor of the hotel there is hiding a fabulous dinning experience. the food is great anlong with the atmosphere. the daily specials are a great deal and taste great. the best time to expierence the restraunt is right about sunset. the panoramic view of the chesapeak bay could only look better from a boat. i highly recommend this hotel, resort, and restruant.
My husband and I got married at the Duck-In, which is a hop-skip-and-jump from the Resort Center - so for our wedding night, we decided to stay at the Resort Center because it was close and easy.
My husband and I, both avid travelers, recently stayed at this hotel and have only positive things to say about it! The hotel staff was very pleasant, accomodating, and helpful. We reserved a room on the bayfront which was extremely large (both the bedroom and the living area) and it had a beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay! We found this hotel to exceed our expectations in ALL areas!
I had stayed there twice with the organization I was working with. My first impression of the room was okay. I was on the top floor, so I had a jet tub, which was a plus.
Filthy hotel, rude staff
I found this to be a filthy hotel. The pillows were brown, the carpets were sticky, room was not clean. The beds were very uncomfortable. They also offered services and did not come through with them. No maintenance staff at night. Upon complaints to the staff the front desk clerks were very rude. I thought the rooms to be way over priced and the quality to be of the lowest class of all hotels I have even stayed in. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Would not go back to this hotel
This hotel, despite being rately highly on many sites, is not up to par. It was not as clean as I would prefer, had very old furniture and bathrooms, was very noisy, and the oceanfront balconies are not child-safe as the railing is too far apart.
Since the bedrooms are the front rooms along the halls and the living area is on the balcony, it is extremely noisy at night, even for a family hotel.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone nor return.
We stayed at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center for 7 nights from July 4th to July 11th, 2004. The stay was not perfect. The elevators did not work half the time and usually only one worked and the waiting took forever. We usually ended up taking the stairs because we got tired of the waiting. The parking garage was really tight to park in. The remotes for the TVs didn't work very well and the TV in the bedroom would all of a sudden start blasting. This was very disturbing at night when some of the family was asleep. The room during the week we stayed was not cleaned up very well. And the worst thing that happened was the fact that we had some items disappear. They were small items that were left on the table. At first, we only noticed the one item missing and we searched the room up and down and could not find it. We did not make a big deal out of it when we checked out, but on our way back home, we realized another item that was missing. We decided to call after we got home to talk to the manager. We explained to her what had happened and she said she would look into it and she would give us a call back. She never did call back. We do not want this to happen to other people who decide to stay there. After all, that is a lot of money to spend to have your personal items disappear. I guess the best part of the stay was the swimming pool. It was nice.
I did not necessarily receive bad service from this hotel, but I do feel that the reviews I read prior to booking my room were rather misleading. The suites open up to the bedroom, which did not have a door between it and the living area. We were traveling with an infant, so this meant extreme quiet once he was put to bed and no leaving the hotel room for any of us, as we would have to walk through the bedroom. The kitchenette had a small microwave, sink & refrigerator, but no silverware, plates, or stove. The TV remote control did not work, which would not have been much of a problem, except that the only way to change the channels was by the remote. One article I read mentioned a wet bar, although, our room did not have one. The bath tub was was very "worn". The decor was rather drab and boring. We booked a "Bayview" room. Our view was of the parking lot. If we went out on the balcony, we could see the bay, but even that was limited. I felt the description was somewhat deceiving. The rooms that actually face the bay are called "Bayfront". In addition, the power went out briefly during our stay. For quite sometime after the power was restored, the elevators were not working, the air conditionser was not working (in July), the water pressure was gone, and the water was yellow/brown. The staff was friendly, but if you are looking for a "resort", I would stay elsewhere.
