“Superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2011

Just came back from a two night stay. Great location, spotless rooms, reasonably priced, large and spacious balconies, super location toward the north end of the Boardwalk, and above all, very gratious and accommodating resort staff. We had to make last minute changes to our reservation because of unexpected events and staff at the front desk went above and beyond. Very positive vibe from housekeeping as well. My only caution would be to echo what others have said about the tight parking - the smaller the vehicle, the better.

Clean, clean, clean!! I wore socks and no shoes around the room and the socks didn't even look like they had been worn! And the off-season rates were amazing! Great view, relaxing, good sleep. What more could you ask. The parking deck was a little tight ... but at least they had one!

Four Sails surpassed our expectations. We have stayed at many places at the beach but Four Sails will be our future loaction. An older time share property that is well kept and fits the bill. The rates are good and all units are ocean front with large balconies. The parking is complimentary and there is a restaurant on the premisses.
All rooms have large jacuzzis and complete kitchen facilities. There are 2 flat screen Tv's and cd player. The bath has an easy access from bedroom and living froom which as a fold out couch. The indoor pool as well as the proximity to the ocean are great.
What a great find!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front.

Listen, this place has to be the best hands down! The staff is friendly, courteous and goes out of your way to accommodate you. The hotel is clean, the grandchildren love it! We recently stayed with Four Sails and again the room was excellent, well stocked and conveniently located at the end of the strip. The price...well you can't beat it. My only complaint would be get some Wi-Fi, but I can live without it.

Before staying at the Four Sails, I had done some research in the area to see where you could really get your best bang for your buck and stay right on the beach. Early on the Four Sails jumped off the page but unlike the other hotels in the area, this is not a national chain and it was hard to figure out if I should only believe the good reviews or the bad reviews. In the end I decided to give it a shot and thankfully I made the right decision. My wife and I traveled with our toddler age son and we had a great time.

Check in was very quick and easy, they were even able to supply us with a crib for our son. While the parking may be considered tight, there is garage on-site which some hotels on Virginia Beach do not have. The covered parking was very nice especially during the thunderstorm that came through the area on Saturday night. The rooms are very basic but clean, there is plenty of room to store any food you bring and they supplied enough dishes for us to use the entire weekend.

Our room had an ocean front balcony that could be accessed from the bed room or the family room. The only minor downside of our room was the noise that could be heard from the indoor pool which was on the floor below us and would impact the 4th through 6th floors, but we didn't hear the noise past 9 pm on either night we were there.

The room included 2 flat screen tvs, a dvd/vcr player (the front desk has movies to rent), a stereo and all seemed pretty well kept. The TV had all of the standard and basic cable stations including a few stations in HD.

The location was really amazing, while it is just north of some of the older, well known Virginia Beach hotels and restaurants, there is a lot of new restaurants, hotels and shops coming to this area. The Oceans 31 development is a couple blocks away and it includes a couple of fantastic restaurants and Neptune park is just a couple blocks away as well. Also Pi-Zzeria and Casby's Tapas Bar and Grill are right across the street.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back in the fall.

I thought I'd write a review for Four Sails, as I just completed my reservation for the upcoming beach season. We stayed last year and absolutely loved it. I recommend the end unit Queen suite if you can get it; it offers both beach and street balconies. VERY TIGHT parking garage. Avoid driving the SUV. Beautiful, well maintain beach. Pretty much in the center of VA Beach; walking to lots of attractions. Great staff; small livingroom but adult son said the sleep sofa was comfortable. Flat screen TVs, nice bathroom. Looking forward to coming again.

For $62 with a AAA discount, I can't really complain about anything at the four sails. The small parking garage right next to the hotel made check-in quick, and while the front desk persons weren't the most helpful, they got everything done pretty quickly. Walking through the halls doesn't really inspire one with much confidence, but the rooms are great.

Our Queen bedroom suite had two larger flat-screen TVs, a large, comfortable couch, a well-appointed and clean kitchen, and a very nice jacuzzi tub (which was duly utilized). Water pressure was good, sheets were clean, and the towels were thick. The view of Virginia Beach from the 9th floor balcony (and every room has an ocean view balcony) is nearly perfect, as the Four Sails is positioned closer to the boardwalk than some of the other hotels along "the strip".

The only reason I rate this room 4 stars instead of 5 was a cucaracha sighting. Now, because I live in Williamsburg not far up the road, I don't really fault hotels in the area too much for cockroaches, since these bugs are both common and multitudinous here. Moreover, because this hotel is a timeshare location as much as a hotel, it isn't full service, and extended stays by prior parties may have induced a critter or two into the room before we arrived. The room itself was nearly spotless, so I'd guess this is not the fault of housekeeping, but it's still not the best experience to have while on vacation.

Oh, and one more thing: Bring toiletries. Again, because this is a suite/timeshare, you are expected to have your own shampoo and conditioner, and they do not have any at the front desk. Soap is provided.
