I really appreciate all the hotels we have been stayed doing their best to host quests at this difficult time. However, one staff could destroy her team’s effect to rude your vacation mood. We knew we will be later than 10pm to check in and was not able to digital check-in. I called hotel in the afternoon to report our situation and was told we are assigned to room 1205 as request in my reservation for sure. She confirmed we were all set and looked forward to meet us later. While we arrived, the front desk lady told us, there was only one room available and nothing could be confirmed before we checked in. She did not even let me finish my story of the earlier phone conversation. Being IHG Elite members for over decades, I totally understand how challenged to arrange the rooms. However, if our room has been assigned in the same day afternoon and confirmed, they should honor their promise. All she needs to do just to apologize for our inconvenient but not the attitude of take it or not take it. We came there to celebrate my husband’s birthday which I have noted it in my reservation. Based on our experiences with IHG, we will be greeting with oral or card at room to show IHG’s caring. Unfortunately, not at this IHG hotel! Although we saw dust on the desk, lamps, we know the housekeeper works much harder now a day at pandemic. As I always wiped everything whenever I stepped into the hotel room, to be honest, it did not bother me. What I concerned was the hand bar next to shower head was broken. It could be harmful if someone actually leaned on it to step out of the bath tub. Another problem is the phone message light was blinking but you could not push the bottom to listen or turn it off (broken). It was annoying at night that we had to unplug the cable. Besides above minor issues, this hotel certainly is one for the best options at Virginial Beach for its location. The best part of our room was the super heavy door to balcony. It was miraculous to shut off the sound from the beach. So you enjoy the Oceanview, but not crowd noise. While the balcony provides you the sunrise view, the room entry gives you the sunset view. No matter the restaurant on site or across the street, you will find tons of eatery to enjoy.

The view is the best part of the hotel. Every room looks out over the ocean. If you leave the sliding door cracked open a bit you can sleep to the sounds of the waves rolling up in the beach. The location is nice with restaurants and shops in close walking distance. The valet - which is necessary with the limited parking - was greatly under staffed but the attendants were very friendly. We asked if we could have a late check out but were advised that is a option reserved only for high rated rewards members. (The room was available.) All in all it was an okay basic hotel but I would probably choose a different hotel if I visit the area again.

Hi Morishe, I am glad you left feedback. Thanks for staying at our Holiday Inn Va Beach-Oceanside (21st St)! We always wanted our guests to have a delightful stay, no matter what the purpose of the travel is. Though I appreciate your compliments on our room views and location, I'm sorry to hear that your stay was marred by your dissatisfaction with the limited valet staff and the turndown of your late check-out request. I went ahead and shared your thoughts with the team so that necessary actions can be taken to promote improvement. We hope to host you again in the future so that we can give you a much better experience. Cheers, June A. Case Manager IHGService

All I want when coming to the beach is an upper floor room facing the ocean so I can open the door and hear the waves. We made our reservations a couple weeks in advance and it only gave me one option of the room. A few days before I was offered upgrades that cost $20 per night so I decided to take my chances. When we arrived our room was ready early which was a plus, but it was on the first floor. When I asked if we could switch he said they were booked. If you want a good room upstairs, call ahead of time and reserve your place. I didn’t figure that we would be one of the 8 rooms on the first floor out off 250+ rooms available. Pretty disappointed. The room itself is dated and kind of gross. Mold in the shower, patches on the ceiling, dirty bed comforter, and to top it off, our glass door would barely open. It’s in a great location with lots of things in walking distance. But I definitely won’t be coming back. My advice would be to spend the extra money and stay somewhere nicer.

Hi Ashley, Thanks for staying with us. We apologize for any confusion with the room type and upgrades and are so happy that you were able to get into your guest room early so you could enjoy the beach ! It looks as if you selected to opt into the upgrade upon availability, unfortunately were were sold out over the weekend and could only honor the exact room type you secured for your reservation. The room type reserved is only located only on the first floor of the hotel. We honor our IHG Clean Promise and hope our staff was contacted to immediately resolve any guest room issues you experienced. Your experience in the guest room is not typical of a stay at our property, and we will research your concerns to make sure they are resolved for future visits. We appreciate letting us know how we can improve for future visits and hope to have you back as our guest in the future.

My husband & I stayed here for a weekend couples getaway. We checked in and Keith at the front desk thanked my husband for being a platinum member several times. He also recommended a few restaurants for dinner. He was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We didn’t hear any other guests at all during our stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Perfect beach front location. We opened our patio door to hear the waves crashing on the shore. So relaxing. A perfect getaway weekend!
