For some reason booking.com didn't register us or couple in front of us. Apparently, that is a common problem with booking.com and this location. We were also charged a small amount more than quoted.
The room was clean, but the carpet was wet and musty, and you know those big brown spiders that hang out around drains and wet areas? Yeah, I woke up to see one on the wall staring me down. That one won't be bothering anyone again, so don't worry about him.
It's not actually Virginia Beach, it's Norfolk. There is absolutely nothing that would ever bring me back to Norfolk. The hotel is on a corner that is really difficult to get into the parking lot. You need to make a U-turn then quickly merge in fairly high-speed traffic to make the parking lot. I averaged about 50% on the first attempt.
I don't really want to complain about it. The pool was very clean and property looked good, but the rooms really need some renovation. It's not the maids or the management's fault. It's the owners who need to step up. It's cheap, but it's still between 20 and 30 minutes from the beach, and I doubt I'd stay here again.
Oh, and breakfast? I would be embarrassed to call that a continental breakfast. It's mini muffins and bagels and tiny styrofoam cups for coffee and juice. It's fine to offer it, but not fine to advertise as an amenity.
Sorry, I really wanted to give it a better review, but these 4 star ratings before me are absurd. I would give it somewhere close to 2 stars.
Our room was located around the pool area. The maid was very friendly. The receptionists were generally friendly, the lady who checked us in was great, although we had problems with the booking, as did the people in front of us.
