I have no complaints, everything was great. The food offered was full of variety and tasted great. The lady helping out was patient with my 1 year old who decided to throw food and myself who dropped a cup of juice. The room offered a private room for my boyfriend and I while the kids slept on the bed and...

This is the third time we've stayed. Each time was very nice. Our room had an ocean view and balcony. Beautiful view!!! The breakfast was exceptional, some items changed each day. Since we stayed for a week, this added nice variety. The only downside was the breakfast area was quite small requiring a number of guests to take their food...

Overpriced for services quality received - we were told room would be something we did not receive. Appliances not in proper working order. We would not select this hotel to stay at for future travel plans.

We had a refrigerator, small stove/oven, microwave and a sink along with several cabinets. The room came with the largest flat screen TV we ever had in a...

I am very happy with the accommodations at this hotel. This is my second time staying there and I plan on making it my hotel of choice when I am in the Norfolk Virginia area. It is clean and quiet at night. Loved the view from my window.

Room comfortable and clean. Service helpful and prompt. Surprising number of guests but all seemed accommodated. Exterior of facility weathered and needs attention. Was assured by staff that this was to be upgraded very soon.

It is great to hear that you had a great stay and that my staff took really good care of you. I appreciate you taking a few minutes to let me know how everything was while you were here and hope to see you next time you come to the area.

Standard 2* hotel, good value, good service. Poor public transportation options. Too far from restaurants to walk. Excellent beach access. Some of the rooms have balcony. The A/C unit is in room and can be noisy turning on and off. Internet quality is good enough for Netflix. Not enough power plugs for two people. Staff are friendly.

Thanks for letting me know about your stay, I am glad to hear that everything was good. Finding enough places to plug in is always a challenge these day, and we are currently looking into different options to better improve ourselves in that area, including options for direct USB plug-in.
