One way to save on Virginia Beach hotels costs is to stay where kids eat free. Both Holiday Inn and Marriott offer kids eat free deals, although the the Marriott deal has more restrictions.
At certain Marriots, you can book an Escape Family Time Package which also lets kids 12 and under eat free with a paying adult, plus throws in a free in-room pizza party. However, availability varies significantly by date and location.
For example, randomly plugging in the weekend dates of May 29-31, I was able to get the deal at five Marriott properties in the Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads area. But when I put in the mid-week dates of June 2-4, there were no Marriott properties offering the rate. So plug in your dates using the link below and see if it's available on your travel dates. Be sure to use the corporate-promotional code MAJ.

Consumer Reports just published a guide for dealing with high hotel prices. Among their suggestions (and some of ours) for saving money at Virginia Beach hotels:
|The Courtyard Marriott at the beachfront.|
For example, Roomsaver.com offers coupons--good for walk-ins only-- that can get you an oceanfront room for as little as $39.95 per night in the off-season!

Ready to compare rates on VA Beach hotels (or hotels in Norfolk, Williamsburg, or other great cities)?
Just enter in your check-in and check-out dates and the name of the city where you want to stay. (Note: the search may take a a minute or more, since they're searching multiple sites.) You'll get back a list of VA Beach hotels with room prices, hotel ratings, and --best of all, in my view-- reviews from people who've stayed there. Sort them by price, reviews, location and more. Try it!
