Guest reviews

  • Single

    Centrally located on the beach. Clean and pleasant atmosphere.

    Breakfast buffet needed more room or better flow. Could use brighter bedspread for beachy feel.

  • Family with children

    It was very clean when you walked in. A women was constantly mopping up the water and sand from beach goers. We also really liked the breakfast.

    They charged me more than what I booked the hotel for. I thought I book for $180 a night including tax. I was charged $194 plus 3 different taxes. I thought I had prepaid and because of them raising the cost I ended up with a $75 bill. Also the electric kept going out in the bathroom and the ceiling leaked above the toliet.

  • Family with children

    Staff was very responsive, polite and friendly -- also very clean premises


  • Older travelers

    The hotel was right on the beach. It is the only positive thing about this hotel.

    The bed was a brick. The "suite" which I booked was only a king bed with a couch. It was not even bigger than a standard room. The room was hot during the day. The air conditioner did not keep up. I complained but to no avail. They were not even concerned. The free breakfast was pitiful. I really didn't consider it free for how much I paid for this room. High priced room but "motel 6" accommodations. Very disappointing stay.

  • Family with children

    Receptionist gave us a beautiful ocean-view room! Great breakfast....and good location.

    Need to put in a spa along with the swimming pool.

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly and helpfull staff, nice atmosphere. Proximity to basic shopping (beach gear) and restaurants. Clean beach.

    Nothing to mention.

  • Family with children

    The k ly good thing that happened was my son left his pillow and the hotel said that they would mail it to me. Have not seen it yet but they did say they found it

    The room that I paid for does not exist I. The hotel. There was no king suite with separate lounge area. Hotel staff was not friendly and refused to assist in resolving the issue.

  • Older travelers

    The Only thing we liked about Country Inns & Suites was that the location to the beach.

    I didn't like that I was lied to about the damage caused by Irene when I called prior to arriving. I didn't like that our room upon check-in was occupied by 3 large humidifiers blowing loudly, and that I had to call to have them removed. I didn't like that the electricity had to go on and off for 5 and a half day (spoiling food in the frig) before the manager stepped in and changed our room. I didn't like that the elevators were not working most of the time. I realize that Irene had just hit and that was not something that could be helped, but when I was eventually told that they put us in one of the hardest hit rooms, again after calling and being told they had no damage except a little water damage in the lobby, I felt lied to and cheated. The hotel ruined our vacation from beginning to end.

  • Family with children

    the room is comfortable and love the layout of the parking garage to the room. You can park on parking garage 3 and stay on level 3. you don't have to lug all your stuff up/down an elevator or through a lobby. Also, the location of this hotel is very conventient to all the beachy things.

    I wish we knew the resturant wasn't open.

  • Family with children

    The location is excellent.

    The breakfast buffet is busy and you have to move fast. The rooms and hotel is a bit run down. The staff are not terribly helpful.

  • Family with children

    The staff were very nice and polite.

    Didn't have an outdoor pool. That is important to me with my children. However, was a busy weekend at va Beach and we were down to two oceanfront hotels to pick from. Country Inn was our pick.

  • Family with children

    The photos on were not accurate. I reserved a 1 bedroom suite and recieved a 1 room suite(no seperate bedroom). Unfortunately, the staff at Country Inns & Suites could not do anything to change the reservation.

  • Family with children

    The breakfast cannot be beat. The view, if that is what you are looking for is wonderful. The balcony on your room is an added bonus.

    The room was dirty. The bathroom was full of mold, and had a funny smell. Wiping around the bath tub faucet the white washcloth came back black. The bath tub also did not hold water. The toilet did not flush properly and became clogged easily. The facility is 100% non-smoking, however, on the floor that we stayed as well as in the elevator there was a heavy smell of smoke. The room even smelled of smoke. On the second morning an alarm, which sounded like a fire alarm, went off for around 15 seconds, either from the hallway outside my room, or from one of the rooms close by.

  • Family with children

    The staff was friendly and accommodations were good. Rooms were spacious, clean and quiet and had amenities such as refrigerator and microwave. The location is right on the beach.

  • Older travelers

    Location. We wanted to spend a night at the beach, and have used Country Inn and Suites often in the past in different locations.

    We stayed in room 515, and the bath tub is not level in the bottom. It was really funny feeling. We are also used to newer County Inns. This one appears to have been some other hotel and just bought by County Inn. It was certainly adequate. The parking was fine since there was hardly anyone staying there, but during peak season that would be a real problem.
