More About Hotels near Atlantic University...

Book a Private Room Through Airbnb to Save Big

The Airbnb options closest to Atlantic University in Virginia Beach’s northeast neighborhood vary widely in price, size, and amenities. The most affordable route is to book a private room, starting at around $75 per night. This rate often includes properties with a private bathroom, shared kitchen, and proximity to the beaches. Room rates rise sharply in direct relation to their distance from the water. Some properties farther from the beach offer additional amenities such as pools, fenced-in back yards, and may even allow pets as well.

A handful of full apartments are available through Airbnb with similar amenities. Many feature full kitchens, free Wi-Fi, hot tubs, multiple bedrooms, and more starting around $100. The cheapest options are located farther from the waterfront and the university. A few luxury properties, starting around $275, are adjacent to the waterfront and within a short drive of the school. The total number of Airbnb options in Virginia Beach is very limited. It’s important for travelers to book well in advance, particularly during the spring and summer months when accommodation options are scarce and prices soar.

Look Inland for the Cheapest Hotel and Motel Options

Not surprisingly, the best budget hotel options are located away from the waterfront and from Atlantic University. Travelers seeking the cheapest possible accommodations will find the best options in north central and northwest Virginia Beach. Econo Lodge, Days Inn, and Motel 6 all operate inland properties in these neighborhoods for around $50 per night. To the northeast, travelers will find several dozen mid-range, brand-name hotels located closer to the ocean and to the university. Candlewood Suites Virginia Beach/Norfolk, DoubleTree by Hilton Virginia Beach, and Ramada Virginia Beach Oceanfront all offer two- to three-star accommodations starting around $70-80.

Most Upscale Hotels Are Located Far From Atlantic University

Travelers expecting three- to four-star luxury should look to the The Westin Virginia Beach Town Center, Crowne Plaza Virginia Beach Town Center, and Hilton Garden Inn Virginia Beach Town Center. All are priced between $140-170 per night. However, these hotels are situated in Virginia Beach’s Town Center – a tourist area near hotels, shops, and restaurants, but farther away from Atlantic University. The waterfront Ocean Key Resort offers three-star resort accommodations with a long list of amenities for around $150 nightly. For travelers looking to splurge, it’s the most convenient resort option near the university.

Rent a Car for Affordable, Hassle-Free Transportation to the University

Travelers primarily interested in visiting Virginia Beach’s beaches can easily get around on foot and simply hail a cab for longer trips. The VB Wave Trolley operates limited service along scenic Atlantic Avenue with all-day passes available for just $2. Shuttle service from the airport is also available for around $40. But those looking to explore more of the area or easily commute to and from Atlantic University will need to rent a car. Even though traffic and parking can be difficult, it’s the best, most convenient, hassle-free way to get around Virginia Beach.
