Thank you for providing us feedback and passing on a great review. We have a great group of associates here at the Residence inn.

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...

Thank you for taking the time to provide us your valued feedback. Like all Residence Inn by Marriott properties, we are pet friendly. We are unique in the fact that in the Virginia Beach Resort area, there are only two hotel properties right here on the beach that do accept pets, this being the only Marriott, so we do see...

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...

We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. There's a lot of great things to do in Virginia Beach and watching the planes flying in and out of Oceana is one of them. Next time you visit please don't hesitate to call the front desk if you have any issues with dogs barking. We can always contact...

In addition to all our belongings being rooted through by a maintenance worker, and having cash stolen out of my wallet, and having a police officer to our room twice, and my children crying because they were scared to go to sleep, and we were only refunded 1 night, even though this ruined our trip, please let me share what...

Although this incident occurred about five months ago, I sill recall many of the details and the outcome clearly.

I apologize that you were displeased with the...

This place is great. Really love that they accept dogs. If i come back, ask for the 2d floor room facing the ocean - the balcony is just as big as the room. I like that the bedroom is separate from the living area. The room has all the amenities with full size refrigerator. It would be nice if the...

The hotel is really well-located on the beach, just a few blocks north of the Neptune sculpture. All the rooms are ocean-facing. The hotel is very dog-friendly---seemed like everyone but us had a dog or two with them. The hotel charges an extra cleaning fee for "dog-stays" and apparently it works. We have dog allergies, yet had no symptoms during...
