Want a Virginia Beach oceanfront hotel? I don't blame you. (There's nothing like being lulled to sleep by the waves.)
These hotels are right on the Boardwalk and get consistently top marks for their amenities and family-friendliness.
While you'll almost always pay more for an oceanfront hotel, unless you have to go dirt-cheap, you'll probably appreciate paying the extra bucks in end, since the oceanfront is so centrally located to the Boardwalk, top restaurants, and of course, the beach.
For example, there's the Spring Hill Suites. Consistently rated the top oceanfront hotel by many travelers, Spring Hill Suites gets top marks for cleanliness, value, and friendly staff. It's also located in the middle of the beachfront, so you'll be right in the thick of things (and just across the street from a superb Italian restaurant, Il Giardino).
However, there are deals to be had even for hotels along the Boardwalk, particularly if you're willing to travel off-season (fall is a particularly great time to visit-- generally nice temps and the crowds have mostly gone, plus you can enjoy things like the annual Virginia Beach Neptune Festival).
It's also a good idea to find low rates by searching online, trying last minute deal apps like HotelTonight, and checking out places to get discount coupons (see below).

In recent years, TripAdvisor.com announced that its readers listed the Tropicana Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach as one of the "dirtiest hotels" in the nation. It ranks near the bottom of the list of hotels in their Virginia Beach hotel popularity index.
Why did readers dislike it so much? Complaints included dirty carpets and sheets, mold in the bathrooms, bad smells, and rude staff. It's a shame, because the hotel has a great location. But unless the Tropicana sees the light, or gets new management, you may want to avoid it.
Another hotel which Trip Advisor readers has often panned includes the Palm Grove Hotel on Atlantic Avenue.
