Spacious for Family of 5
Posted Jul 30, 2016
I don't usually give reviews, but have been so helped by others' reviews that I thought I'd share my experience.
Pros: Very clean throughout, fluffy FULL-SIZED pillows (I hate those little square ones a lot of hotels are changing to), nice bedding, 2 separate bedrooms (one for me & my spouse, another for 2 teen kiddos), plus the pullout sofa, great for my tween. Three tvs, one for each living area. Free adequate breakfast, fridge & microwave. Clean stocked dishes. Large kitchen table we pulled out to have several family game nights. Tub & toilet separated by a door from sink & mirror. Easy 15 min. access to Virginia Beach. Most of the staff we encountered were both friendly & helpful. No cigarette smells!
Cons: Thin walls. We heard everything around us, esp. the first night, which kept my youngest awake. TINY pool. (Our bathtub was almost larger. However, kids still went in, better than nothing.) Breakfast had decent variety, but was the same every day. Could used changed up from time to time. Don't try cooking anything in the oven. It burns on the bottom & is raw on top. Stove top, also, wasn't great. I can make grilled cheese just fine at home, but with these pans (no nonstick), they just burned. Only one ice machine, in building across from ours by check-in.
Overall, I'd return again. My major issues with most hotels (cleanliness, cigarette smell, & space) were all non-issues. Worth the money!
