“nice for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2008

This hotel was pretty nice. The breakfast contained cereal, bread, muffins, sausage biscuits, coffee, juice, milk and waffles. Our room had a microwave and fridge at no extra charge. The bed was very comfortable (and clean). The bathroom was very clean. The only thing that I didn't like was the adjoining room had smokers and we could smell the smoke. I would stay here again.

  • Liked — the price, room was clean, free breakfast
  • Disliked — the smell of smoke from the adjoining room
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled as a couple

My Mom and I took a two day, one night, trip to Norfolk, Virginia, from Washington, DC, on family business. While the car trip was tiring, the Best Western Inn was a pleasant surprise. While the Inn was located in a dense commercial district in Norfolk (actually the Best Western's address is Virginia Beach, but I was told that the Norfolk city limits was right across the street!), we felt very safe in two first floor rooms ( the motel has two floors, but no elevators and my Mom is 89 years old). Each room had TWO Queen-size beds! The beds were very comfortable with their "pillow top" mattresses to make them soft. The room was clean and, most important of all, besides the safety issue, the rooms were quiet. The heating unit near the window was relatively quiet and kept the rooms warm throughout the night. Since the Inn is located in a commercial district, there were a number of places to eat almost within walking distance from the Best Western. As a matter of fact, we WALKED from the motel to the Denny's restaurant for breakfast on Sunday morning. My only disappointment was the bathroom and the room lighting. The bathroom is quite small. I seemed to keep backing into the bathroom door after using the bathroom sink. The shower was comfortable, though, with a massage shower head. The shower even came with a rubber floor mat to keep you from slipping. All the room lamps used what appeared to be energy-saving fluorescent light bulbs which made the room seem "garish" in the blue-white light. All in all, however, I would recommend the Best Western Inn, Virginia Beach. And the Orbitz price was right!

  • Liked — location, price

I was so pleased with my stay. I stayed for a total of 7 days. My room was nice. The furniture was really nice. Considering the fact that the surrounding hotels have very bad reps. This hotel is very nice and deserves a higher rating. Housekeeping staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were so comfortable that when I returned home I found myself missing the bed at the hotel. The only negatives were the front desk wasnt very professional. I had a few family members trying to contact me and had to wait about 20-30 rings before someone picked up. Overall they just werent professional. The parking is limited in the back however there is plenty of parking on the other side. I would love to stay at The Best Western again. They made my stay so enjoyable.

the hotel is ok, the parking is not set up for the hotel. you can not always park near your room.(not enough spaces close), especially for the rooms on the back side. the breakfast would be ok if they hired people that cared, it was not kept up. the denny's in front of it was not that great either. cold side orders. the room was ok. roomy for the price. bed was ok, shower pressure was good. it was mainly clean.
i would stay there again, due to the price compared to others in the area.

Stayed here 3 nights, would not stay here again. For the price it was a good hotel room, tiny but fine pool for wading around, conveniently located. Unfortunately it was incredibly noisy -- people partying in the parking lot (we were in back) until 1am each night. This caused serious problem for my family -- a 2 year old and my wife just got back from the Middle East and was jetlagged by 7 hours and needed sleep, at least by 11pm! Hotel staff clearly doesn't care about the noise -- there was hotel furniture pulled outside and it was very loud. Motorcycles being revved up etc., people yelling at all hours. Only way to drown out was running A/C and freezing. Didn't complain because if the hotel did nothing about something this obvious, it wouldn't make a difference. WiFi worked but cut out occasionally. Would have given this place top rating for the price otherwise, serious lesson about a hotel letting some guests ruin a place for others. Didn't try the free breakfast -- cereal, Eggo waffles, individually wrapped bagels.

Walked into the Best Western at 10pm after a long day of driving. They said the room would be $103+tx. I asked if that was their best rate & she said, "What do you mean?" I managed to get it knocked down to $94 with AAA and then when I gave her my ID she said, "Oh, you're from out of state? I can get you a better rate than that" and got it for $86+tx.

I'd think that you'd get a better rate if you were a VA resident? Anyway, the room was very clean and comfortable. The noise from the other guests walking by was unbelievable. Toddlers running and crying out on the walkway after 11pm?!

We missed getting breakfast there, didn't even see it when I checked out, but ate next door at the Denny's (use the restroom in your hotel room before you check out and NOT the ones at Denny's!)

Just a couple minutes drive to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

I returned from my vacation several days later with an additional $5 charge on my credit card. Haven't figured out yet what that was for - I called an 800-number from the room and that was it.

  • Liked — Convenient on the travel route
  • Disliked — The noise from outside the room late at night

This was the second time that I stayed here, and was pleased to see that this was the hotel that my Priceline deal booked. It was clean, the beds were very comfortable, staff was helpful, and the breakfast quite good.

  • Liked — Beds and waffles.
  • Disliked — That I could not book it for another night, and had to stay at the dump across the street.
