Super location if you have Army, Navy or Air Force business or just passing through Norfolk. We stayed here for 3 days and will do it again. We visited Ft Eustis for an Arm AIT graduation and site seeing. We had a suite located on the top floor. The view was fantastic, the room was a little out dated, but was quiet and everything (TV, frig and Air) worked well. The breakfast was OK and the staff was wonderful. We didn't use the pool, but it looked fun and full of kids. The beach was clean and the surf was nice to walk in. You must have your own car (no airport shuttle), but hotel parking was not a problem. There is lots to see in Norfolk and Newport News. The tunnel under Chesapeake bay between the two cities is very interesting. Lots of ocean traffic over the tunnel. Price is right...

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are centrally located to most of the major military installations in the area, and a big supporter of members of the armed services.

This hotel was very nice -- clean and convenient (a few minutes drive) to Virginia Beach while being set back away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk and city. We also drove to Sandbridge, which was about an hour away, so this hotel was a nice, lower-cost place to stay while still convenient to our selected points of interest. The staff were AMAZING. Everyone from the front desk people to the breakfast staff to the housekeepers were all super-friendly and helpful. I don't think I've experienced a staff near as friendly even in some of the 5-star places I've stayed. And the continental breakfast was fantastic -- scrambled eggs, bacon, Belgian waffles, omelets, and the usual cast of pastries and bagels.

The one drawback was that it was a bit noisy in the early-morning hours when people were packing up to leave, etc., since the suite doors do open right out into the parking lot and a lot of families stay here. But, I'd say that comes with the territory with this type of hotel. Overall we were extremely pleased and would definitely stay here again!

The Best Western Plus Holiday sands Inn & Suites, Norfolk was very nice and an excellent value. The hotel is right on the beach in Ocean View and has beach access as well as a very nice patio area and pool. We spent a lot of time just laying by the pool and on the patio. The service was excellent and the staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located near I-64 and between the Naval bases. We were able to easily get to Downtown Norfolk, NS Norfolk, as well as NAS Oceana Dam Neck Annex for a wedding reception. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a great hotel at a reasonable price and I will definitely consider this hotel in the future if traveling to the area.

Over the years, I have been coming to a hotel in the City of Norfolk Virginia. From a great location (next to a private beach) to a great room and breakfast, I have never been disappointed. The staff are second to none in making their guest feel welcome and respected and I plan on staying in the Holiday Sands Best Western on every Memorial Day in for foreseeable future. Great place!

We stayed here for two nighs and we couldn't have been happier. Tiffany checked us in and she was extremely accommodating. Although it's a pet friendly hotel, the cleaning staff do a really good job. We couldn't tell that there was ever a pet in the suite while we have severe allergies. Breakfast was exactly what we needed. The pool was great but the best part is that you're located right on the beach. We cannot wait to come back. Thank you team Bestwestern Norfolk!!!

This was a very pleasant experience. It was a last minute find and my family needed overnight accommodations. The three most important aspects to a good hotel for me include a great staff, amenities, and cleanliness. This hotel fulfilled all those requirements. It was very clean, the staff coming and going was wonderful and they had decent amenities. I particularly appreciated the ability to walk out the door and down to the beach to look at the bay. Overall for a beachfront location in Norfolk, I think it's a pretty good deal.

Room Tip: Get one with a balcony so you can look out to the bay

I recommend this hotel. It is very pleasant. The hotel has an excellent and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Nice beach access. Very nice outdoor pool. The five-floor tower provides a nice view of the bay. I've been there twice and will stay again.

Room Tip: Stay in the tower (5 floors) which provides a very nice bay view.
