Although a short distance from Virginia Beach, the hotel was in a great location consisting of a great backyard private beach. The private beach was very clean and quiet and was great to walk through during the day. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Although this hotel had great features, the best part of my stay was the... More

This is a great stay for a quiet beach. For this area there aren't many other decent options. Rooms are clean, Staff is extremely helpful and polite. My only complaint is the wifi only works in the rooms and not at the pool.

I love the rewards of brand loyalty so I always stay in Best Western when possible. This is my favorite in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach area. It is one of my favorite of all the Best Westerns. We had a great room with view. The room was super clean, great comfortable beds, great linens, etc. We had a balcony with... More

Our room was incredibly tiny. We almost didn't stay because of it. It looked old and dirty. We re-cleaned it and it was actually clean just dirty looking. The staff and beach were both amazing. The website made us think we were staying in the nicer "Suites" part of the hotel when we were actually in the older "Inn" part... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice and would stay each time we come to Norfolk. Very clean and well maintained property. Staff is very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. Lovely beach area, pool and patio overlooking the bay. Breakfast included was very good and the area was clean and stocked with plenty of good food.

Excellent staff who went out of their way to assist us in fixing most of the things that were wrong with the room. We stayed for a week and the motel is way overpriced for the quality of the room. Nice access to the beach.

This hotel was everything we could have wanted for a relaxing week end, It was clean, quiet and great beach location. The pool was clean and the beach steps away. Dozens of dolphins were a special surprise. Good beach restaurants close by. No need to dress up.

We are excited to hear that you enjoyed your beach excursion, and even more excited to hear that the experience you got while staying with us made it even better.

The location was right on the beach.The staff was wonderful and friendly and the pool was large and clean. The breakfast had hot items and had a nice variety. There was a nice fountain outside. It was nice overall.

We've stayed at this hotel numerous times and were always very satisfied. This last time we checked in at 2:30pm and went out for the evening. When we returned at 9pm we found out that the TV reception was terribly snowy and could hardly see what was on. I called the front desk & was told that maintenance was gone... More

We had an amazing time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was especially happy with the housekeeper. She was so kind and gracious to us. The rooms were clean. The hotel sits right on the beach. What's not to love?! I was here two years ago as well and will be coming back again and again!
