Nice hotel, reasonable cost and close to beach.

The facilities were clean, front clerk on both shifts were pleasant. During our second night the people in the room next door were loud. At our request the clerk moved us to another room so that we could get some sleep.

Perfect for a family visit to Virginia Beach

Pros: In addition to the above comments, the staff was both friendly, warm and helpful.
Cons: The breakfast area was a bit small, so we took the breakfast back to our room and ate comfortably overlooking the beach.
Location: We really didn't want to do anything but spend time with family and friends.
We needed a motel/hotel near family in Virginia Beach. Since we were spending minimal time at the hotel, we just wanted a clean, comfortable room with morning breakfast included. We were more than pleased to have a room with a back door to the beach that had a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Econo-Lodge more than exceeded our expectations.

Lovely small hotel right on the beach

Pros: The kind staff and cleanliness of the room.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Right on the beach
Had a wonderful stay at this hotel Aug 28-30. My mother has stayed her several times and never had a bad experience. When I arrived the front desk staff did not have my reservation from Travelocity. I was worried because it was a Friday in the summer and feared they would not have a room available. The staff was very kind, straightened it out with Travelocity and gave me a great room. The hotel is spotless, all of the staff we dealt with were kind and friendly, and the ocean view could not be beat. We will definitely be back!

Nice hotel. Beautiful view from balcony

We arrived late in the evening. As we pulled into the parking lot there was a person working the parking lot asking our name. He was checking to see if we had a reservation or not. I found this to be an extra step on the hotels part to make sure that only people with reservations were parking in the lot. There was plenty of parking spaces to choose from, not like at other hotels on the strip. The room was very clean, the staff was very friendly & polite. I would definitely stay here again!

Above and Beyond Service and Beautiful View!!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, beautiful view, service exceptional
Cons: no elevator
Unbelievable ocean view that seems touchable, service was above and beyond all expectations, the room was super clean and breakfast was continental but quality. I even lost my keys in the ocean and while searching for them the staff came outside to ask if I needed them to call a car dealership to get a new key made. They completely made a tough situation bearable. The staff and housekeeping constantly smiled and offered help. Great deal and I'd come back for the service alone!!

Excellant location

I have stayed in many hotels in many states and countries so I have a good idea of what room rates should be or ought to be. The location was right on the boardwalk and within walking of activites, had a small pool but was clean and comforta ble tempature. The room was a little on the small size but had a safe and refridgerator. The carpet and bedding was getting towards the end of their life but clean. The best thing wa the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Art at the front desk was great to talk with and knew his job well. The rates were high for the age of the hotel but not out of range of others in the area. They are all too high.

Enjoyable stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: none
I took my 2 daughters and 3 grandsons to the beach and was delighted with Econo Lodge on the Beach. Our patio was less than about 20 feet from the boardwalk, the rooms were clean, and I can not say enough about the excellent staff. I will positively use this hotel again and recommend it to anyone who wants my opinion.

By the beach n affordable:)

Pros: Free breakfast, next to beach, affordable price
Cons: limited parking, no elevator, no "hot" breakfast
This price was very affordable considering it's right by the beach. It is an older motel, but met all our needs without the extra bells and whistles of newer motels/hotels. Breakfast is continental and not a "hot breakfast." But it does the job at making you full. The room was clean and staff tended to all our needs. The room had a small fridge and safe. Parking was a bit cramped, but you're always guaranteed a spot while your there. One parking per room reservation. And we loved the idea of the free bike rentals, although we didn't get to use it. Overall, we had a great experience.
