    Very good hotel with ocean view and in the center of the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk. The front desk was very friendly, professional and accommodating. Rooms were nice size, fridge, microwave, iron etc... Very good price and great location.

    The Dolphin Inn has luggage carts. There is a place for them in the first floor of the garage near the elevators. I agree with you, tho, on the tiny parking spots. There is one parking spot for every room which is nice that we don't have to cross the street to park elsewhere like some hotels in VB, but the spots are tight. I did notice this year, as compared to two years ago, that the rooms have been abused a bit by people who have stayed there. The flooring was replaced within the last two years tho. Our door was difficult to shut all of the way too! In fact, one of the housekeepers (a man) walked right in one time, not knocking or calling out for us, after a friend came into the room behind me and didn't make sure that the door was shut completely.

    When was the last up date, remodel and new furniture to dolphin Inn. My son is in the army. We have not seen him in 5 years. We always spend our vacation in Florida and stay in Meyer's Condo. We are hoping that the Dolphin Inn will be some what as nice. The reviews are not so pleasant about Dolphin Inn. I appreciate the accommodation and I pray all will turn out great with the rooms in case we come back to visit our son again. Tennessee is almost a 12 hour drive to Virginia. Sincerely, The Gregory's
