“Clean Comfortable Cozy”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I visted the Best Western on a girls' getaway trip during Spring Break! I had an awesome time! The front desk was courteous, friendly, and even graciously snapped a few photos of our group! I truly enjoyed my stay. Charles was extremely accomodating and the young lady at the front desk was pleasant and humorous. I enjoyed my morning workout with a breath-taking ocean view and got to enjoy the VA sunrise. The hotel is located on the strip so getting to restuarants and gift shops was easy to do on foot and their was parking! I will be returning to this location on my next visit to VA!

Our family of 5 were originally going to stay for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4 nights because we were that impressed with the service and hotel. I have to mention Charles at the reception as he was extremely helpful. All the staff we came across were very friendly and helpful including the owner of the hotel who obviously leads by example. The reception area is very nice with complimentary coffee/tea/lemonade. The car park at the hotel was great but maybe a bit tight if you had a Chevy Surburban or similar. The rooms are very clean and look good after being refurbished. The only small issue we had with the room was the bathroom was a bit small. Great view from the balcony and as others have mentioned it's central to a lot of things. The shop in the hotel rent out bikes and 2,3 and 6 seater bikes that you can ride along the board walk. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and was one of the best complimentary breakfasts we have had on our 4 week trip. We were always seated straight away and the service was excellent. The indoor heated swimming pool was great for the kids especially as the weather was pretty cold when we were there, the laundry is next to the pool and is reasonably priced with a TV to watch while you are waiting. Overall I would highly recommend.

Great hotel in great location. A steal compared to other hotels offering the same accommodations. I would have given it 5 stars, but the staff were average and the "free" breakfast buffet didn't include gratuity. We also had to wait 15 minutes both mornings before being seated. However, the food was good.

I wish I could of stayed longer!! The room was super nice,modern up to date and the decor was beautiful. We were on the 9th floor and the ocean gave us a nice breeze in the room. We didnt need to use the AC. Parking is free and they offer free buffet style breakfast eggs,bacon,sausage, potatoes, & biscuits w/gravy also pancakes,waffles,french toast are made hot to order, fresh fruit cereal etc. So that saved us money as well as time. They have an indoor pool and spa. And their located near some great spots such as the amusement park my husband and I walked over and took a ride on the ferris wheel. We also walked over and ate dinner at rockfish. The beach is foot steps away. They also have some nice souvenir shops in the hotel.They offer room service from 4pm to 10pm (I believe)super convenient! The staff from reservations all the way to check out were EXCELLENT!!!! They allowed us to check in early and checkout late because it was available! A+ customer service. A+ amenities, A+ for convenience, A+ comfort and A+ for decor. Great job!!

I am bery appreciative of the staff at Best Western PLUS Sandcastle Beachfront Hotel. They honored by request for an early check in, arranged for wake up calls when requested, and also supplied a late check out for my family due to an emergency with me. The room quality is above and beyond. There's thick plush comforable carpets, a private balcony overlooking the peir, and the bed comfort was perfect! We loved the fact that they accomodated children with a kiddie pool! This was a great idea and the main attraction why we chose this hotel.

I choose this hotel due to the prices and it was a perfect choice. My boyfriend and I needed a quick get away from the work and ect. We choose Virginia beach because it was close and he has family here. We both was very satisfied with the room and location. Only thing we disliked was it was Ant season and they where all over our counters in the room. Not many but enough for us not to bring any food back to our room. Besides that, we had a great stay.
