Reviewed 24 May 2014

I recommend this hotel. It is very pleasant. The hotel has an excellent and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Nice beach access. Very nice outdoor pool. The five-floor tower provides a nice view of the bay. I've been there twice and will stay again.

Room Tip: Stay in the tower (5 floors) which provides a very nice bay view.

Description of rooms were misleading that they were ocean view, they were bay view, instead. The hotel was older but clean, the breakfast was good and the staff was accommodating to my needs with my mother being in a separate room. The location was perfect for the locations we were visiting.

Even though I live in Norfolk, I do love to get away for a few days from city living. The Best Western, on the beach in Ocean View is a terrific place to take that break. The prices in the middle of summer are high, the rest of the year it's a inexpensive get-away. The included breakfast is fantastic, and staff is top notch.

Perfect location! Pool was clean, ocean was right there and the view from the room was amazing! Breakfast for free and quite good. Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. I would stay here again and would recommend it to family and friends.

This motel is directly on the beach and also has a nice outdoor pool. The outside needs some work, but the room we were in was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Our room was on the second floor and we had a perfect view of the beach. We highly recommend this motel if you want to stay in this area.

the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke and body odor. the only way to air the room out is to leave room door open and turn on bath fan. neither front nor rear windows opened. apparently the housekeeping staff thinks that one and a half rolls of TP and a two oz bottle of shampoo will last three people four days. had to go to lobby everyday to get more. when I asked for a different room they wanted to charge me 120 more for my stay in a room that was less than what I had. would have changed hotels but availability was minimal due to conference.

Tamesha, you're a gem and management should acknowledge your dedication to the guests. Stephen, you should not be on the front line as your attitude kills what could be really great here in Ocean View. The beach was delightful and the woman in the breakfast room were fantastic. The cleaning crew could use some quality training, but they made up for it once I asked to change my sheets after the 3rd day and make my bed. This was a treat for me for Mother's Day and I would not stay here again unless the hotel improved it's customer serviced
