I stayed here on the way to Jacksonville. The location was close to shopping and restaurants, yet it was off of the main road. My room was a nice size and the bed was very comfortable. The room also had a small refrigerator and microwave. I was slightly disappointed to see that it only had a shower but that was...

This is the first time I have stayed at a Sleep Inn & Suites. The room was comfortable. So comfortable my wife and I wanted to buy pillows like theirs. The staff was friendly and the hot breakfast above par. Cookies, popcorn, sweets, and coffee were available in the lobby.

We stayed 1 night in a very clean and comfortable room. It was very quiet despite building work going on across the parking lot. The staff were really friendly. The free breakfast was good and more than adequate. Nice touch with the free popcorn & coffee in the lobby. Slept really well. We've paid more for lesser quality elsewhere.

Hotel was very nice. Room was clean, comfortable. Staff very pleasant, efficient. Breakfast was ample. It appeared that there were several convenient restaurants as well as a nearby shopping center, however, our arrival time precluded patronizing those.

Every staff person I encountered was friendly and professional. The front desk staff rocks! Very friendly, attentive and accommodating. I came to Gainesville to participate in a race and I felt they were genuine in wishing me well and accommodating my needs. The room was very clean. I made sure to complete a comment card. Would stay here again if...

Stayed for one night on our way home. The king room was clean, spacious,and nicely decorated, with a desk and sofa. The bed was very comfortable. Popcorn was a pleasant snack at night. Located close to I-75, easy off and easy on.

This Econo Lodge is in a perfect spot on the beach. All rooms are oceanfront and comes with a great price. It is an older hotel and could stand a few updates, however it is clean and we continue to stay here. Compared to the other places I have stayed on VA Beach, there's no comparison.
