"Great customer service, but a horrible place to stay. Didn't feel safe walking in the neighborhood.

We'd planned to stay at this motel for six nights, but left after one.2015-10-06"
"Good location if you like the beach, but I got to the hotel late at night only to find a bed full of sand and lamps that didn't work.

"Excellent location with easy access to highways, military installations, businesses, and places of interest. Driving to Virginia Beach and surrounding areas required going through the underwater tunnel. Good rates. The hotel was comfortable, though the pool wasn't open. Breakfast was available. The parking lot was being resurfaced during our stay, so noise and dust were noticeable. Good place for a short stay.2022-09-26"

"We had a nice motel stay, but our room smelled like smoke and made it hard to sleep. The staff was nice and helpful, but no other rooms were available. We asked for a clean set of bedsheets the next day and got them with no problem. The shower curtain rod was loose, so the curtain hung to one side. The guests next door came back late one night and made a lot of noise for over an hour. Not much selection at breakfast, and the dining room needed monitoring.2017-08-15"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
