I was staying at the Best Western in Norfolk, VA. I had an amazing experience. When we arrived everyone was very friendly and helpful. Check in took less than 3 minutes! Compared to waits at other hotels. Once we got to our room and unpacked we took a look around and the decor was very updated! The room itself was...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 28, 2016

We chose this property because it was close to Norfolk Naval Base where my daughter is stationed. The price was right...only because it was an off-season time. The front desk staff was very friendly and called us by name each time we went into the lobby. Our king suite was spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It is...

I booked a room for my wife and two dogs for a visit with my daughter. I read the pet policy and we were fully compliant. When we arrived at 7:30ish pm, they stated that our reservation didn't mention pets, so they didn't have a pet friendly room for us. They had rooms but basically told us, that we were...

Ray Thank you for taking a few minutes to tell me how your stay was. I am truly sorry to hear that your stay with us was less then stellar, and that there was an issue with the check-in procedure.

This hotel is right on the beach. We enjoyed a beach walk in the rain shortly after we arrived. It's also convenient to the airport. The breakfast was OK. The internet connection was fast and reliable. I booked a Friday night stay, and the rate was nearly triple the Thursday night rate. So I found it relatively expensive given how...

Location is really nice and although next to a major road, relatively quiet. We stayed here last year so thought it would be nice to visit again. First the good: the staff are extremely helpful, King, and prompt in their response to concerns. The two ladies running the morning brunch are always cheerful with a greeting for everyone walking in...

We have stayed at Best Western Plus hotels before and they have been excellent. This place is like a run down motel. Needs to be totally updated. It was clean and the desk staff were pleasant and helpful and it is right on the beach. The breakfast was also disappointing.

The Best Western Holiday Sands Inn & Suites is a well-appointed hotel on the shore of Chesapeake Bay. Most rooms have a water view, and have all the usual amenities. My room had a small balcony with a view of the bay. It featured a coffee make, small fridge, and microwave. In the morning they have a fairly good breakfast...

After seeing other reviews, I chose this bw because of the location on the beach and it was the closest bw to an event I attended at the Scope (25 min.).
