“Great Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Our weekend stay at the Best Western Sandcastle was very enjoyable. The hotel staff was very accomodating and friendly. Daniela, Sylvia and Victor went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and always went out of their way to speak to us when we saw them throughout the weekend. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor oceanfront for one night and then we moved to the 9th floor for tw...

Wonderful stay at the Best Western Plus Sandcastle Hotel. Everyone at the front desk were so helpful with whatever we asked for. Also George (engineer) was so kind to help us with our bags upon leaving. The beds are very comfortable and the hotel is very clean. The free breakfast buffet was always delicious. Planning on returning next September.

Staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Housekeeping personnel are continuously cleaning all the common areas; therefore, hotel is very clean. We had a room on the 8th floor overlooking the ocean. The room was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and updated. Bed was great. Their free breakfast buffet had a large variety of foods - scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, oatmeal, cereals, pancakes, etc, plus various types of juice, milk and some fresh fruits. They also provided juice, tea and water in the lobby. Large lobby area with lots of sitting space to gather and enjoy the fireplaces or television. Location is perfect - fishing pier, restaurants, and shops - all within walking distance. Great place for the money. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again.

We had booked our stay at Days Inn and after going to the room it was horrible, nasty & horrible smell, it made me sick... We immediately went to Best Western Plus Oceanfront and Victor at the front desk was so kind to show us a room before we reserved it due to our experience with the other place. The room was extremely clean and our private balcony overlooking the oceanfront from the 8th floor was fantastic. I understood that they recently remodeled and was a Non smoking hotel. I have severe allergies and did not even have a sniffle during my stay. The amenities were great. Having two restaurants in the hotel made it very convenient and the 24/7 coffee & juice bar was awesome. Victor and Sabina at the front desk were very pleasant and professional & made us feel welcome, Sabina even called our room to be sure everything was to our liking. I will certainly stay at the Best Western Oceanfront when we visit Va Beach again and Highly Recommend them . All of the staff was exceptionally pleasant.

Room Tip: Oceanfront with private balcony for the fantastic view.

When I arrived in my room I was very impressed. The room was well appointed and really clean. The 9th floor beachfront room was perfect and I enjoyed my time here. The breakfast at the hotel was a buffet breakfast with freshly made items, be sure to try the sausage gravy if you go, it was fabulous. There were more items than I could remember but we did not go away hungry. Each day the breakfast had a few different items keeping it interesting.

My opinion of Best Western hotels has changed since our stay at the Sandcastle this weekend. Our room was fantastic. The hotel was just remodeled and the rooms are spacious and open. The new design takes into account the modern day era of electronics by having electrical outlets readily available and visible.

We had a good stay. The hotel was in a good location and the accomodations were what we needed to enjoy a short and busy trip to congratulate our son for making Navy chief. Thanks Best Western for making our stay enjoyable.
