I stayed here with my Wife and 2 small dogs back in September of 2016 as a little get away before heading to OBX with some friends for a week. I have to tell you, I absolutely thought this place was great. Where else can you get a pet friendly high rise ON the beach?? Parking was a slight issue,...

Great location for the Shamrock race. However, they don't have anything set up in the morning of the race for the runners. I think most do, so plan accordingly. The rooms were fine although slightly outdated. It could be better.

Thank you for your valued feedback. In years past we have put out bananas, granola bars, bottled water and coffee, but not many of our guests seemed to take. This year, I received feedback that it was missed, so we will definitely be adding it back for following Shamrock weekends. We expect our next renovation to begin in about a...

This hotel is right on the beach with all the Marriott amenities we know and love.The rooms are clean but could use a bit of updating. We did travel with our dogs and so did most of the guests there. I don't think I would stay here if I didn't have my dogs with us. The rooms are spacious but...

We are delighted you enjoyed your trip to Virginia Beach and staying at the Residence Inn by Marriott. Here in the Virginia Beach resort area, there are only two pet friendly hotels, with us being one of them, so we do see our share of four legged guests. All of our suites are pet friendly and we do our best...

I researched hotels in Virginia Beach and made a reservation well in advance. Thought all my needs would be met. That only works if the hotel has not been misleading. I never got any farther than "parking", which is kinda essential upon checking in. I did think it was odd that cars were just piled up in the entry drive....

We are happy to accommodate the parking of one vehicle per guest suite. While it is true that a majority of our parking is located three blocks away, we do offer complimentary valet service from 7a.m. to 11p.m. every day. Or valet staff work hard to make sure our guests vehicles are ready for them when ever needed. I am...

My company booked this hotel for me. This is NOT where I'd stayed had I had the choice. Everything from parking, the valet service, to the staff, cleanliness of the rooms, smell of the rooms was bad bad bad! We had no idea this was a pet friendly hotel. I love animals but that doesn't mean I want my room...

For my my birthday this year I wanted to wake up at sunrise with a view of the ocean, in a nice hotel that would accommodate our dog (not easy to find anywhere), which is exactly what I got! We ended up in a 7th floor room with a gorgeous view, comfy bed and large balcony. The only suggestion I...

Do not stay at this hotel! So many other nice ones to choose from. This hotel is dirty, loud, and has very limited parking. I only made it two days then had to leave. Also, I am pet friendly, but not when dogs are barking in the middle of the night. Very loud rap music was being played in the...

We love staying here in the offseason. The rooms have a wonderful view of the ocean. It's very peaceful to lay in bed, day or night, and look out at the ocean. I also enjoy watching the Navy fighters headed out over the Atlantic from nearby NAS Oceana. Our only gripe is the dog owners who stay here with their...
