The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and very accomodating. The room was wonderful. This is a great place to stay if you are touring the Virginia beach/Norfolk area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JCW3QY Most of my stay was very good
I've stayed at this location several times and I've always had a good experience. This week I had a 3 day stay, from Tuesday through Thursday, checking out Friday morning. Last night as I was returning after a 12 hour day, I got to the hotel only to find that the parking lot was barricaded due to a Christmas party which was being held there and wouldn't be over till 1:30am. I told the gent directing traffic that I was a guest there but was told I had to park at another parking lot and that there was a shuttle bus available to bring me back to the hotel. I cruised around and found a parking space about 250 yards from the hotel and walked back to the hotel..only to find once I got to my room I had left my cellphone in my vehicle. I waited about two hours until I saw two parking spaces open up on the hotel premises and ran to my vehicle and was able to convince the gent directing traffic that there were two spaces and he let me in the parking lot. Worst case, some advance warning that the parking lot would be full would have been in order. After a long day, the last thing I wanted to do was go fishing for a parking spot off the property with no real guarantee that my car would not be towed where it sat. One other issue, which the hotel had no responsibility over, was the group that was there. I've never had so many "F Bombs" dropped around me by both men and women both in the lobby and riding the elevators. I understand Christmas parties, I'm not a young guy or have virgin ears, but I was embarrassed by the coarseness of the group from ECPI University, which was the school next door and from where I was asked to park. I will make sure that when I come back to the hotel it will not be during December.
On the positive side, being a Platinum Rewards member, I was treated with courtesy and given vouchers for breakfast and dinner as I am also a military vendor. The staff does a very good job and I will return but not during the holidays.

We decided to revisit this Holiday Inn after a not so positive stay several years ago. Our local family had been hearing good things. We were glad we did. The staff, redecorated rooms, and general ambiance were all way above par. Our only disappointment was that the dining room was not open for breakfast on a Monday morning; however, we will return.
