    My family so enjoyed to stay here. The only thing we are not happy that we were waiting until 4:45pm for check in.

    Nice place to stay with family. Right on the bay the waves were soft and calming a nice variant of Virginia Beach for the littles and to just relax. The kids loved the pool, breakfast was good. Room was nice, comfy and clean. While surfaces were clean and nothing was gross by any means a good deep cleaning could be done in some crevices, but I would 10/10 stay again! You won't find a better stay for the price!

    Look elsewhere for better options

    We stayed here twice, this time the service was non existent, room never touched for 7 days stayed, took out our own trash, tub didnt drain, flies in room, A/C wouldnt stay running, ran out of the 1 roll of toilet paper they gave us, ice machine was broke a few times, no cooking dishes as mentioned in listing, beach access is good, location is good. Our last stay at this place for sure.

    Nice Hotel, But Owner Needs To Hire More Staff

    The location of this hotel couldn't be beat - right on the beach and within walking distance of a few restaurants. Our room was clean and spacious enough. Nice pool and the outdoor lounging area had plenty of room for everyone. BBQs & picnic tables were nice too. The problem was whomever owns or manages the hotel must not offer enough pay to hire more staff. The front desk staff couldn't be more courteous and patient - really, really patient - because she was the only one along with a trainee when we checked in on 7/18/21. There wasn't enough housekeeping staff to clean the rooms, so we waited for two hours to get into our room. In fact, there was a very long line. This poor desk person tried as hard as she could to accommodate everyone, but she was also training someone. My heart went out to her. Later on, I needed extra towels and sheets for the sofa bed. Both she and the trainee got what I needed with a smile. After the beating they took, I really had to hand it to them for being so professional and courteous. But whoever owns this hotel really has to consider raising everyone's pay and offering more to 1) attract workers and 2) adequately compensate those who are there because they're working their butts off. All the people in line were complaining they had to wait a ridiculous amount of time when there should've been three people instead of one. Thank goodness the one woman working was absolutely wonderful. If not for her, I probably would still be waiting for a room.
