Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Luther86 Incredible ocean front
We stayed on the 11th floor and had an incredible view of an enormous beach. Rooms are a bit dated, however the incredible staff coupled with the beautiful beach, you can't go wrong.
I nearly forgot to mention watching the Dolphins swim by in the morning was just priceless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DCNY Very Nice and Comfortable Vacation
We spent the Columbus Day long weekend at the Holiday Inn Oceanside. It was a little chilly outside to be at the beach, but the view we had of the beach was great and the boardwalk which was right there was fun to walk on the brisk, sunny days. The location is great for some of the best restaurants at the beach - and a short drive to others. The staff was very helpful; the room was very comfortable and clean. The only fault I could find is that the bathroom was a little outdated but had all the necessary requirements so it was not a problem. There is a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave in the room which was convenient. The indoor pool at the hotel looked very inviting, but we didn't find time to use it, although I checked the temperature of the water and it was perfect for me if I could have made time. The pool was never very crowded when we walked by and was not over-run with children (a plus for me) as are many other hotels. Perhaps because this property doesn't have a complimentary breakfast (you can get served at the restaurant), I didn't see many children. Not having a free breakfast was not a problem since there are so many great breakfast restaurants nearby which we enjoyed. We had a very relaxing trip during our stay at the Holiday Inn Oceanside and would return the next time we are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by traveldoc57 great fall getaway!
it was lovely. from the front desk welcome, the bartender, paul-i think, who stayed late to serve us and several others who had gotten in late, to the room with the ocean view, and the room service for breakfast--very clean, quiet, comfortable. i had not been there in 30+ years, but it turned out to be the perfect location to re-explore the beach, the boardwalk--watch the sunrise. if you are looking for an incredible value, convenience, and a quiet time at the beach, this holiday inn in the fall is the perfect place. thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AandZbyCM Fabulous place for an event
I have used this hotel twice for Scrapbooking retreats. We initially booked the HI Express, but got too large for that. They seemlessly transferred all of our reservations and rates. Although the HI Oceanside does not include breakfast, they included it for us. The room was perfect and the staff was amazing! I highly recommend this property for business or pleasure!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David1012 Excellent Experience!
Booked our room online, the pictures always look better than when you get there. Not true! The room was the best on the beach with an excellent view, and it was the cleanest one we have stayed in at Va. Beach. The staff at the front desk were the best of all. They made the entire experience even better. They told us how we could have a late checkout and made sure we were comfortable even after the check in. The facilities were excellent and the whole place was extremely clean. The only down side was the breakfast. I would not recommend it at all. With that said, I would not hesitate to stay there again and again.

What can I say that I have always said before, I am treated like royalty from the time I walk in, and to the time I checkout. This is the only Hotel that I will stay in while I am the Virginia Beach area.

Stayed at this hotel during the off season. Friendly staff and comfortable bed. I ate at the restaurant within the hotel and they had by far the best spinach and artichoke dip I've ever tasted.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LuvRedSox Slightly Disappointed
I have not stayed at this hotel for a while but decided to give it a try last week. The room was clean and we were on a higher floor, which was our preference.
We did have some trouble parking. Guests get a parking pass that they have to display, which is great. The problem is that other people who are not staying at the hotel and come to drink at the bar use the parking spaces at the hotel, leaving none open for guests. The hotel location, while convenient, is also located directly across the street from a bar. We were disappointed to hear the loud activity even at the end of October.
The Wi Fi was also very slow; it took forever to download some app updates.
Lastly, this hotel does not offer a continental breakfast. If you want breakfast, you have to pay for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wen2013 Amazing Vacation
Our stay at the hotel made this vacation so amazing. The hotel was clean, comfortable and good customer service. We really enjoyed the ocean view and the balcony.
My only concern was that we did use the washer/dryers and they didn't seem to clean properly. I did not mention this to anyone at the hotel as it was a "minor" issue.
We will definitely return. We really appreciated the late checkout as a rewards member.

Nice, clean hotel, friendly staff, great location at the promenade.
Only minor disadvantage is that it doesn' accomodate a lunch or dinner opportunity within the hotel. However, there are plenty of opportunities close to the hotel.

Hotel is in a perfect location and rooms have excellent views of the ocean. My room was clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area. I also had a very pleasant check in experience and was greeted by a very friendly staff that were smiling and very helpful at providing me directions to somewhere I needed to get to. I have no negative issues to report.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms had issues. The TV had a mind of it's own. Sometimes it would work and sometimes it would not. Also the ironing board was broke. This created an issue for being presentable for busines the next morning. Asked to exchange it and left it out but it was never exchanged. The drink specials at the lounge was never initiated. But, great location and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lesapril Beautiful View of Virginia Beach
We arrived in the late morning on a Saturday and were pleasantly surprised that a room was ready and we could check in. We were able to find a parking spot in the hotel lot. The staff were very nice. The room was clean and well maintained. We did have an issue with the TV in the evening, a maintenance man was sent right up and was able to resolve the problem. The room has a microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony, enjoying the beautiful view of the Atlantic. Lots of shops and restaurants in the area. We walked to everything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGrant1216 OUTSTANDING Customer Service
My husband & I headed to Virginia Beach for a little getaway and to enjoy the Neptune Festival. When we got there, we realized many of the streets were shut down and grew concerned about how to get to the hotel. I phoned the hotel and Onur Guduk (the front desk manager) answered my call and directed me how best to circumvent the detours and get to the hotel. We arrived at the hotel a little (after 11:00 a.m.) I went to check in, knowing our room wouldn't be available, but hoping for the best. As I anticipated, there were NO rooms available, but Onur quickly assessed availability, and took note of my Platinum status and offered an upgrade, if we could wait until a bit later to check in as the current guest had a 2 p.m. check out. The room we would check into was a King oceanfront suite with a bar. Of course, we were happy to wait until 2, but Onur phoned us around 1 saying the room was ready. Onur was very courteous, helpful and made our little getaway even better than we expected. Holiday Inn should be proud to have him as their Manager! We look forward to returning to the hotel again soon.

My 2 sisters and I have been vacationing at VA Beach for probably 10-12 years.Have stayed at this motel numerous times.We had a great week! The only thing we were very disappointed about was being told we couldnt sit outside to eat at the restaurant. We never had an issue any other year. The weather was beautiful(thus we couldnt understand the reason for no seating outside). But we really did enjoy our stay and hope to come back next year. Thanks,Pixie101

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Snugbug Over priced food and drink
We only stayed a weekend but the first night we decided to eat dinner here and while we expected the food to be slightly overpriced, which it was, the drinks were outrageously overpriced.We had after dinner glasses of wine in the bar area and watched some sports on their TV and were SHOCKED when we were charged 8.50 per glass for HOUSE wine. That was more expensive than the bottle should cost. I understand that that Holiday Inn needs to make money BUT the second night we found another place to dine and have a couple after dinner drinks that were within walking distance so IF we decide to stay here again we won't make the mistake of dining or drinking there.

The view from the 10th floor balcony was breathtaking! The room was everything I hoped for newly remodeled, nice king size bed and clean. Considering the view, it is probably one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. Thanks.

The room was fine liked the room but ran into a couple problems. One day came in from the beach to find someones dirty socks in the middle of the floor another day didn't use the beds and when ready for bed discovered blood on the sheets. They were changed that day so was very upset. All they did is give me a sheet to change by myself. Also in the morning suppose to have coffee 6-10AM. At 630 asked at the desk and the person was very rude. All other desk employees were good

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RDphiladelphia Rude staff at the hotel's restaurant
Very disappointed at the hotels restaurant staff. The manager and the server were plain rude. Have to get the bill corrected two times. No apologies from the staff for their mistakes instead just a rude attitude as if we have done something wrong in asking to get the bill corrected. There were dozens of flies in the restaurant, we could not eat our breakfast and when we complained, no action was taken, and the manager just gave us a rude look as if we are not supposed to bring that up. I like the convenience of eating at the same place as I am staying, but given the experience here, I am not staying here again.
