"I’ve stayed at a lot of oceanfront hotels but this is by far the closest and most convenient hotel I’ve ever been to. Walk out, cross the bike lane and the boardwalk and you’re on the beach! It’s close enough to run up to your room if you need to (which is great when you’re traveling with a kid). Our room was spacious and very clean! We had ZERO issues with housekeeping. Our room was always fully supplied. Beds were comfy and the balcony was so completely worth the money we spent to be oceanfront. With a rather rainy vacation, we spent a lot of time sitting outside and looking at the ocean rather than being in it. The restaurant and bar downstairs was fabulous!! And convenient. Maybe too convenient, lol!! Every member of the staff was friendly. The grounds were beautiful and amazingly clean. The pool was great and having an indoor and outdoor pool was fantastic. There is a concierge who tries to get you to sign up for a time share presentation next door which but we just told her we were in a hurry to get to the beach during what little sunshine we had and that was it. When we come back to Virginia Beach we won’t even consider another hotel!" beachygal81 (TripAdvisor, July 2018)
|"Excellent Home for a Week. My wife, 13 month old daughter, and I stayed here for 8 nights, and had a great experience. The front desk staff was incredibly pleasant every day, always greeted us with a warm "good morning," and were very accommodating. When we checked in, they had us on the 3rd floor, which is the same level as the public sun deck, but moved us to the 11th floor so we could enjoy a better view for the week - something we greatly appreciated. |
The restaurant - Lager Heads - had good food and a decent beer list. Prices were comparable with other spots on the beach, so we were fine with that. The pool was clean, and never too crowded. The fitness center was a little small, but had what you'd need to get a workout in. The housekeepers were very friendly, and checked in with us every day even though we only had them service the room a couple of times.
One semi-negative remark: the concierge is not affiliated with the hotel. They're part of a group that tries to sell timeshare rentals at other resorts around the country (the whole "listen to our presentation and you'll get a cruise/stay for a low rate" deal). They are very friendly, but aren't going to give you advice on restaurants, things to do, etc., without giving you their pitch.
Overall, a great stay. Next time we visit VA Beach, we'll be looking here first." NateP46 (TripAdvisor, September 2018)
"Oceanfront Value! This hotel is beautiful! Oceanfront with an awesome sundeck. Tasty restaurant. Pretty pool. The staff was incredibly helpful and cheerful. Housekeeping did an impeccable job daily. The water and coffee in the lobby was a nice bonus..” -Sararachelj (TripAdvisor, September 2018)

"Hotel staff was fantastic to work with from check in to check out. Location on beach was beautiful and room had a nice balcony to enjoy the view of the ocean. Food was very good and I would recommend this hotel to everyone.” -mread697 (TripAdvisor, May 2018)
"Such a fun place with a great team! Everyone from the valet to the housekeeper and in between went out of their way to make us feel right at home. You could say the entire stay was Aces, in my book! Will be back and soon!.” -andrewgallimore (TripAdvisor, May 2018)
"My 3rd stay here, great staff and lovely valet guys! The Pool was open, and in fact one of only several open on the Atlantic strip in VAB this week! So thank you HGI, it was nice to enjoy it outside in this hot weather. I did not eat in the hotel, but the free coffee each morning in the lobby was great. I think this is one of the better Hilton Hotels on the Ocean. There are rental chaise lounges on the beach with cabanas. Take cash. This is an independent beach rental. Not aff. W hotel. I forgot my beach chair, and umbrella. Bring yours if you dont want to pay top dollar to rent. Everyone nice, and the folks who stay at this hotel are nice folks as well!” -2014firstclasstravel (TripAdvisor, May 2018)
"We hung out on our ocean front balcony a lot! What a great view and so nice to see sunrise. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones we have had at a hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was parking at a garage just a half block away. They also had valet parking if you wanted it. A great couple of days." -245randallc (TripAdvisor, April 2018)
