Good location.

Pros: The view of the beach.
Cons: See above. I really don't expect them to enlarge the bathrooms, though!
Location: We were there for a graduation. We didn't really do much in terms of local entertainment, etc. It seemed like there was a lot to do, though.
We had a room with a balcony overlooking the beach. GREAT view. The room was OK-small bathroom, though. I'd prefer to have a little more room in the bathroom and a little less room in the sleeping area. Otherwise, it was a pretty good experience. The hotel staff was great.

Comfortable stay, even better help

Pros: Great staff... very helpfull... wanted to help
Cons: Microwaves! Rooms need microwaves.
Very comfortable room with a great balcony to the beach! Only complaints were a too small fridge and lack of a microwave. Really should have a microwave. Other than that, GREAT staff! Any time you passed 1 they asked if you need anything. I also need to add a thumbs up to the hotel and Travelocity, who we booked through. A tropical storm hit a day before our vacation was over. We decided it would be better to just head home than be stuck in a hotel all day with pouring rain outside. We left a day early. I expected nothing. The front desk clerk told me, "You went through a 3rd party to book here. Make sure you contact them." I thought maybe they would give a discount on our next vacation. Called Travelocity when we got home. They called the hotel to make sure we checked out and immediately refunded a full day! No early check out fee... no attempt to get us to use them next time by giving us credit... just gave us the full day, including tax, back! Nothing but good things to say about Travelocity and Oceanfront Inn! P.S. Microvaves.... they need microwaves! lol

Fun at Virginia Beach

Pros: The friendlness of the staff and the housekeeping staff. The building you can tell is an older building....but very clean and well maintained.
Cons: elevators were very slow and it wasn't because of people coming and going and when you have young children readiy to go to the beach.....
Location: As i said above loved the location. Right in the middle....and sooooo many things to do and go, or if you just want to sit and watch the world go by.
Was very pleased with the Hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in many ways. Loved being in the middle of the board walk....loved the fire work show that we watched from our balcony. If we ever go back to Virginia Beach I would consider staying there again. I would give this place at least 4 stars. thank you. shirley Riser

Great location

Check in was Bad. Was passed between four separate employees. Took over 15 minutes to check in on a prepaid voucher. Stayed last year and staff was nice. That is why we returned. Staff upset had to service room and did not vacumn room. Safety issues, giving out room keys without asking for ID to person who came to front desk.

I was a bit skeptical at first, but...

Pros: I loved the Balcony, the bathroom and the air conditioning was very nice, the beds were fluffy and comfy, and it smelled so clean
Cons: drawers cleaned out, menu book and remote sanitized (it had food or something on it and greasy)
Location: Lots of gift shops, restaurants everywhere even in the hotel lobby, ocean front and boardwalk access, bus pass station outside, heated swimming pool
When my boyfriend and I got there it smelled nice, was clean except for some items left in a drawer from previous guests, the view was breathtaking and beautiful. I thought the hotel also looked a little low online for viewing the ocean, but it was just right on the top floor, I was really pleased that we had gotten to chose what floor we wanted at the time of check in. The hotel staff was excellent, always said hello and asked if we were having a good time or needed anything, I had one man we got into the elevator with who worked there as a housekeeper and talked to us like we were friends, even said he hopes we have a great time,come back again, and that he is happy we chose Oceanfront Inn. The hotel looked a little old style, but it was awesome at the same time, I loved the balcony and the bed was so comfy, and the hotel wasn't expensive at all, we will be returning next year :)

This hotel is a little run-down

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
I stayed for a week in November. The staff was friendly and helpful. No laundry room. There was no room service on Friday. The customer service in the restaurant was outstanding. Too bad they were only open one day.

Clean, quiet, friendly and very accomodating!

Pros: Quiet
We stayed just one night and were able to keep our car parked on the lot after check out and able to use the restroom to change which allowed us extra time on the beach before having to leave. It was so appreciated! We would certainly stay at the Oceanfront Inn again!

Great Location with Oceanview

Pros: Close restaurants, oceanview
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was located on the boardwalk with oceanview balcony. My grandson said, it was a dream come true. We had front seats to a full moon reflecting on the ocean, our own dophin watch from the balcony and the sound of the ocean to put us to sleep. The hotel is an older but kept up for comfort. Resturant on location was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be making this one of our yearly getaways. Thanks.
