Great Hotel

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: The swimming pool was a little cloudy.
Location: We went to the Aquarium one day, the Air and Space Museum the next and Cape Charles which is on the eastern shore across the Cheasapeake Bay Bridge.
Terrific location near the center point of boardwalk. The Hotel is on the beach steps away from the boardwalk. No roads to cross. The Hotel is well maintained and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Hemingways restaurant has wonderful breakfasts and a great little bar and dinner menu for the evening. There is an adjoining outside covered Patio where you can sit and sip and watch the world walk by. If we ever go to Virginia Beach again we will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. Thanks to everyone there for making our get-away so great.

Right on the beach.

A little outdated but the staff made up for that. Hotel was clean and the nautical theme was perfect. You may want to remove all the old A/C units from the bottom of the stairs.

👍

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Found staff and overall facilities to be very accommodating; one thing we didn’t like was the parking situation. Your parking lot smelled of human urine, unsafe, dirty, Right parking spaces, and so dark anyone could vandalize or steal easily and unnoticed. Clean up the place put up lights, maybe security guard???? We paid enough for the one night stay!

We are glad you enjoyed the staff and facilities during your stay. Thank you for the feedback about the parking lot, we do have security who walks the property throughout night and does check on our second parking lot. Thank you again for staying at Holiday Inn.

Perfect

Posted Sep 28, 2017
This hotel was just about as perfect as you can get. Literally right on the beach. Super nice staff and spotless. Free parking too. Top notch all the way. Over the last year I stayed in about 50 different hotels and super rare to luck out like this's

Nice hotel on the oceanfront

Posted Sep 18, 2017
Very nice hotel on the oceanfront convenient to restaurants and shopping. Front desk and maintenance staff was very nice and friendly. Restaurant staff needs to be a little more courteous and helpful. Overall, very nice stay.

The balcony door was rusted and broken when I moved in. The room was very humid and smelled moldy. In fact the whole room was in terrible condition. There were stains on the sofa chair. The manual and brochure were all crumpled and worn out. It was the Rock n Roll race weekend. The front desk was friendly enough. And it was only one night. So I thought I can just manage. I hardly slept a wink the whole night. The room smelled much worse during the night. What really shocked me was the front desk's reaction when I checked out. The staff did apologize but she also casually mentioned "Ah. That's why we don't use that room..." Ugh. Hello? So the front desk actually knew the room is not hospitable from the get go? Duh.
