      Location was good

      Parking space very limited, only one vehicle allowed. Also the key did not work sometimes that you have to go to the front desk to have it reset (to our room and access to the pool). Always empty ice machine.

      Its right on the beach and close to everything

      The parking is too limited and very tight

      Are you fricking kidding me it was the worst place we have ever stayed at the internet pictures are very misleading!!!! I was so dissappointed the room was dirty the bathroom had a nasty wash cloth on the bathtub that they call a jacuzzi huh don't think so. Paid almost 400.00 for one night I understand it was a holiday weekend but even for that price we expected so much more. Would have went someplace else but everywhere was booked. So we dealt with it at checkout time we complained and they didn't even offer another night (not that we would have stayed)not a discount nothing!!!!!the internet seriously needs to take this off as a five star maybe a one star given the benifit of the doubt !!!

      All rooms have great ocean views, with own kitchen and even jacuzzi. It was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Nothing at all to complain about. We ate at the Tap House, a short walk away, which I also recommend.

      When I called to inquire about the hotel I spoke to Michelle, she was very infomative about the hotel. I was late checking in and Robert was very helpful with processing my reservation. The location was wonderful and the room was very cozy. I would recommend to my friends.

      DVD player would be a nice additive

      The location was excellent! The rooms were comfortable and relaxing. Would stay again.

      Need better parking. Extremely congested parking for their guests. Need larger area for parking.

      The hot tub was the best. The location of the Holtel was great. The layout of the room, and the fact that it has two tv's.

      The parking spaces seemed to be very small. I have stayed at a lot of Hotels and the parking at The Dolphin Inn was very tight.

      Location and easy access to beach.

      Couch was dirty and bedspreads were stained...

    • Family with children

      From the view of the internet it seemed like a decent place to stay! Boy was I wrong!!!!!

      I used to live in Virginia Beach as a navy serviceman and brought my family to share the "oceanfront experience". I was embaressed to say the least!! The whole place needs a facelift and new furniture!! Oh yeah and there is some guy loitering from floor to floor selling drugs! I had young girls with my family and felt uncomfortable unpacking as he stared! The pool area was leaking from the roof! The housekeepers have no customer service skills.Oh I forgot, it took them a week to refund the money back to my credit card!

      cost versus room not comprable, jacuzzi tub filthy we only showered in it, rooms small and dank.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The location on the boardwalk and the kitchenette were both worth the stay. We were there for the Rock n' Roll marathon and the location was perfect for the enjoying all the events. With 6 family members, having a kitchenette made our stay more affordable and convenient when travelling with children.

      The room was not the cleanest. The bathroom had a lot of space, making it nice for changing. However, the rooms were not the cleanest. The carpeting was wet in an area.

      It was convenient to beach and shops

      The only complaint I have was about the Bathroom, It was not clean the tub had sand and a ring of dirt around it, and the cornors looked like they had not been mopped in a long time. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very comfortable. Great location if you like to people watch.

    • Family with children

      It doesn't have a lobby. It's basically a parking garage with rooms. The pool is just a little bigger than a hot tub. Grounds were trashy.

    • Family with children
      3.8

      All rooms appeared to be beach view

      Old and run down. Found it to be quite dirty. We assumed we'd have daily room cleaning provided we didn't have "do not disturb" sign on door, but it was not the case. A few days later, staff knocks on door and asks if we require anything. We actually left the Inn to find other accommodations.
