There's no replacement for good planning. We were passing through and tried to find a place in Virgin Beach at the last minute and paid the price. The area is so expensive I imagine because of high demand. We paid $300 to stay here one night and it was simply a place indoors to layout heads. Apparently, the Wyndham bought...

The room we reserved was unclean, smelled of stale beer. I was never able to receive compensation; even after calling 4 times for the "manager" Matthew West. I will never stay at a Howard Johnson ever again.

This hotel is painting over a mural of the military that comprise the largest concentration of military in the world. Why paint over it? You dishonor the people that make VA Beach what it is. Shame on you.

Your choice to paint over the military tribute on your building in a military town has inspired me to do everything I can to ensure your hotel receives as much free, bad advertising as possible. I don't care for your hotel, Howard Johnson or any of your affiliates.
