Recs for a short family VB vacation, Aug 4-8

Looking for some recommendations for a family of 5 coming to VB for 5 days/4 nights. Reasonable rates ($250 per night?) and closeness to the beach are our priorities. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Due to hotel occupancy regulations, with a family of 5, you are likely going to have to book a suites hotel or 2 regular hotel rooms. Your dates are at the height of the summer season, so rates are going to be highest. After a fairly extensive search, the only property that I found which has available rooms that meet your budget and your family size is the Clarion Inn and Suites Virginia Beach. This hotel is located 1 block from the beach and you can get a suite with 2 Queen beds and a 2-person sofabed for around $225 per night.

Wherever you decide to stay, you should book soon.

Adding a little to longhorn74's good ideas.

Don't need to know the ages of the children...could be a better policy if one is very little.

You could try Cutty Sark to see what they say. Normally, their efficiencies are for 4. Their apts would be ideal but rent Sun to Sun or Sat to Sat. Keep those in mind for next year.

How about Breakers. www.breakersresort.com. A suite is $313 which you might consider a good deal since they are right beside the boardwalk, oceanfront, 2 rooms and offer a 2 burner stove, microwave, toaster so you could do more eating in. The are near the children's amusement park that is beside the boardwalk and lots more.

Look into Capes Hotel. They have two room suites. Generally good prices. Couldn't get their rates online. The (and breakers) offer good discounts just before and after your visit but Capes may have a price you like. Also oceanfront view.

At the moment the Atrium Resort has a good rate and availability. About 2 blocks from the beach. They have a pool...so not a big resort. But that's what you're looking for anyway...close to the beach.

Also check on Ocean Suites www.oceansuitesvb.com . Looked like they had some good prices too.

Some are asking what ages any children may be, so if yours are young enough, that could be something to factor in.

Let us know how you do.
