Although, I enjoy luxury hotels, this hotel wasn't bad for a standard hotel; it was spacious. The staff was very nice and helpful with restaurants and things to do. The parking was very tight. We had to climb two level flight of stairs for our room, which wasn't that bad. There is elevators on the other side though. The room was very clean with plenty of towels. The bed was comfortable but, the plastic on the bed was annoying to hear every time you moved. I would have loved a bigger fridge, but we managed. It was plenty of room for us.
We had a view overlooking the pool and Cabana. There is food and drinks at the Pool Cabana. The pool was never crowded, only two families at the pool at all times. We enjoyed eating on the balcony and playing games outside. The table and chairs were very nice. No dining room inside. We ate every morning at the Banquet facility. Breakfast was only served. Not too far to walk but, on the premises.
You do have to walk a distance to the beach though. Not a problem for us. Nice having the Sand Bar on the beach. The beach is just beautiful, and relaxing. Pleasant watching the ships cruise by. Best part of the stay is that it is not crowded and private. There are lots of crab on the beach, more at night than the day. You have to walk a small distance to the bathroom. Forgot, there is also a bathroom at the back of the banquet facility to use. I must say that it was the most relaxing vacation I've been on. You have to go visit the Light house. You can see the dolphins from the top of the lighthouse. A spectacular view. I'm going back again. We went to Bush Gardens and the Aquarium. There is lots to do and great restaurants.
Stay anywhere, but don't stay there! While the staff were friendly and fairly helpful, the cabin which we stayed in was crawling with ants: the kitchen counters, sink, cabinets, floors bathroom and even the beds!
Worse were the patches of black rot on the walls: Hopefully this wasn't black mold. The beds were hard and the room is the size of an RV bedroom. The futon/couch was uncomfortable and covered in a thick vinyl. The screen door's screen was totally torn in half. We planned to stay 5 nights. We left after two.
Lousy deal. 2nd visit made it two-for-two being woken up by a fire alarm (the loudest I've ever heard--even outside). Beds were wrapped in rubber sheets and old and lumpy too. Even through the sheets, the rubber decreased comfort and was VERY noisy which aside from disturbing others will also disturb your own sleep. The beach was "red flagged" by simple winds; Uncle Sam doesn't really believe in "freedom"; they'd rather "protect" your family from enjoying your beach vacation. Don't think of a stroll down the beach either--that's not allowed since the Navy took over. The workers are typical govt experience...they don't impart any sense of service or making themselves invisible but to the contrary, will take the best of scarce parking spots in order to facilitate their chores which they take all day to do (what are they doing, because they DON'T make up the beds). The Dunes room they charged me $128 per night that "sleeps 6" can only seat three. Better enjoy more militaristic rules with the pool schedule too...access is strictly controlled; speaking of which, Civilians will be at a disadvantage since you can't drive through the gate #2 with a driver's license. Even their Wi-Fi, if available, is an extra-fee item.
If your comming here, at least bring a comfortable pillow...your gonna need it to take away from the hard matresses. The housekeepers are rude and lazy....they act like your bothering them....they want to get paid but don't actually want to be bothered.... the carpet is so old you get an awful lot of carpet tacks in the feet if you don't wear your shoes while your inside....however, It is a nice place to go if you need some peace and quiet though...they offer free laundry facilities as well and thats great if you have small children. The prices go up every year though...not that the amenities get better...they just raise the prices. Front desk attendants are very nice though....very welcoming....
The cost was about $117 and the room was ok, nothing special and the view of the Atlantic was great. I didn't like the so called housekeeping because that wasn't what it was. Changing towels is not housekeeping and they did make the bed. They did not vacuum and did not clean the bathroom. I called to ask about it, they don't do it. So I said well why don't you at least have cleaning products in the room. I was really disappointed.
We stayed in one of the Cheasapeake Cottages and really enjoyed it. The prices were moderate and affordable. We brought along food and a portable grill. The girls enjoyed the water and the sun. We went to the ocean outside the main gate on the public beach. We watched ships and dolphins. It was very relaxing. I never expect cottages at the ocean to be too fancy, considering you are dealing with sand and water. The staff was helpful and polite.
I took my three small children to the Cape Henry Inn to enjoy Virginia Beach. My room type was the Dune. I was surprised to have a stove top, dishes, fridge and microwave. Our room was small, over looked the playground and clean. The beds were very hard and the smell of the wild fires in NC was overwhelming (entire VA Beach area). Free laundry and ice facilities. The pool was cloudy and very small. The beach at the CPI had way to many land crabs, my son had nightmares. We drove(10 min) to the beach front and paid($10) to park for the day. There the beach was full of jellyfish. No internet connection. When comparing prices to local hotels I'd go here again.
My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom + loft log cabin as an overnight getaway. We were not expecting to have a fridge, range, DISHES AND UTENSILS! It was so great! We're hoping to go back soon for longer. It was just like home, and that made it feel so cozy.
Last year we had the opportunity to stay in the two bedroom log cabin. We didn,t expect it to be like our home, never the less, we found it to be clean, comfortable, and peaceful!!!!!!!! Hae a wonderful time! Can't wait to come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
