Important Lodging Information

Young VisitorsAccommodations and Campgrounds

The City of Virginia Beach and the Hotel/Motel Association want your stay to be happy and carefree. Some properties may not be open off-season, so it is best to make a reservation prior to arriving. When you make a reservation at one of our hotels or motels, a deposit secured by check, credit card or money order may be required. Reservations are confirmed upon receipt of your deposit by the hotel. Familiarize yourself with and inquire about cancellation policies, early checkouts, refunds, number of people in the room and any fees associated with lodging stay, as policies vary from one hotel to another.

Changes in Reservations

Hotels may require up to seven (7) days written notice of cancellation prior to arrival date. PLEASE BE AWARE that some lodging establishments do charge an administrative fee for cancellations of accommodations.

Early Checkouts and Refunds

Hotels may require up to, but no more than, 72 hours notice when a guest requests a change in a previously set departure date. Weekly, monthly and group rates are subject to the confirmation or contract.

Minimum Stays

Some hotels require two-, three- or four-day minimum stays for confirmed reservations, including weekends and holidays. When a refund is due standard bookkeeping practices are observed. Refund checks are usually mailed from the hotel's business office. Refunds are not usually made from the registration desk.

Changes in Rates

Due to a number of factors, it is impossible to ensure that the published rates for a hotel will not change. The publisher has no control over this situation. Holiday and weekend rates may be slightly higher. Please inquire about the rate when making reservations.

Check Cashing

Area banks do not accept personal checks. Most hotels accept personal checks for advance reservation deposit only. Most banks and businesses accept travelers' checks.

The City of Virginia Beach has relied on information supplied by our tourist-related businesses and cannot guarantee accuracy. Listed rates are representative peak rates. Actual rates are subject to change.
