“Overall Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I made reservations (through AAA) for this location, since I am a BWRewards member, a AAA member, and the website indicated all rooms are oceanview. This was to be my first beach trip in 10 years. However, trying to be frugal (and save my extra cash for really good food), I booked a double instead of a king. THOSE rooms are across the street. And up an elevator (in the parking garage) to only PART way to the room. The luggage and stuff had to be lugged (is that how 'luggage' got its name???) up 2 sets of steps. The double room was, um.....well, not very nice. I burst into tears.

I called the front desk, and didn't get ANY help. I called AAA, and tried to get help from them. THEY called the front desk....nothing they could do, they said. My best friend and her husband, unbeknownst to me, were begging with the concierge to help us get a room in the main part of the hotel. Bam! Mission accomplished! Concierge felt sorry for me and my husband, so she worked with us to get us a room in the OCEANFRONT hotel. We would have to move after 2 nights, but that also worked in our favor. The person who booked our room cancelled, so we stayed in the room.

Now...different story. New chapter. The OCEANFRONT hotel is really nice. The room was lovely, clean, and everything we wanted. The breakfast buffet was good (not well laid out, but the food was good). The pool was across the street. Parking was iffy (again, across the street in a garage). Elevator was slow and creaky.

For Best Western to maintain the integrity of this hotel, they really need to upgrade the rooms across the street. But, after all the drama, all the tears...it all worked out, and I was happy for 4 days!

Room Tip: ALWAYS go with the oceanfront, king rooms!

We were looking for someplace to stay for a long weekend, and this was just the place. We were on the 6th floor oceanfront. The holiday light show was going on, so at night we could watch the lights and the cars driving up the boardwalk. During the day, we could sit on the balcony and watch the ocean. It is a wonderful experience. Every employee we encountered during our stay was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are oceanfront, and as far as I'm concerned, that's what you would be lo...

We stayed here and had a great time. They let us check in 4 hours early for no charge and our room was ocean front with a great view. The elevators were very creaky and slow, aside from that the stay was good. The breakfast food was great and had a lot of choices then you could walk right out the back door and watch the sunrise! great stay, I did not give it a five only because the elevators were inconvenient, and the bathroom was not completely clean, but it was not bad.

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra for the ocean view! great view and breeze!

We traveled to Virginia Beach to look for a retirement property. We stayed here because the price was good (on hotels.com) and it was right on the beach. What a wonderful room! It had a balcony and two comfy full size beds. The bathroom was a bit tight, but we didn't mind. Breakfast (full) was included as well as free parking. Perfect location, food and parking. SCORE!!

Room Tip: If you think the rooms on the beach/boardwalk are noisier, you'd be wrong. No problem with the...

Stayed one night May 2012-My door would not lock correctly. My room faced a 3 story parking garage. Lots of noise all night. When I got out the next morning there were broken beer bottles all over.

Will never stay here again.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the Parking Garage side

Has a good stay. The hotel was clean. Only problem with the room was that the tub didn't drain well when showering.
Breakfast included hot dishes. Food was OK, but view was great! Breakfast was only served until 9am. A little early for vacationing families.
Good access to beach and Boardwalk.
Parking was a bit of a pain, since most of it was across the street. There was a small sign between 2 other hotels and the parking garage sits back off the street, so we drove around the block before we could find it.

Room Tip: Be sure you get an oceanfront room for a nice view.
