Perfect location A review of Holiday Inn Oceanside - Virginia Beach (21st)
If you want to be in the heart of the action, this is the place to stay. The overall hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, rooms recently renovated. I had requested a smoking room (being a smoker thought this was best), but wish I hadnt. As soon as you get off the elevator, the smell of smoke was very strong in hallways as well as room itself. On the balcony I found a cup filled with smoked cigerettes, the coffee grounds from the prior occupant hadnt been removed from the coffeemaker, plus they ran out of coffee so I didnt have any to make anyway. Food in the latitudes restaurant wasnt very impressive. We had the breakfast buffet and everything tasted like it had been in the warmers forever. Pancakes were hard as rocks, potatoes cold, etc. Elevators are very slow, we had problems where the door wouldnt shut for at least 5 or 6 trys. We normally would have just taken the stairs, but we were on the 11th floor. Did that a couple times going down. These are all minor inconveniences, but dont think I would stay there again.
