Where to stay in Virginia Beach

With over 10,000 hotel rooms, Virginia Beach offers comfortable and affordable accommodations for every type of traveler. Even with that many places to choose from, this popular resort area does get quite crowded during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to reserve your lodgings well in advance. You can stay just steps from the Atlantic by booking your room at one of the city's luxury resort hotels. To stay near the water for less, consider a budget-friendly inn with an ocean view.
