“Great view, Great price!”
Reviewed August 19, 2009

My boyfriend & I recently stayed here (Aug 13th-15th). We were only there for 2 days, wish we would have stayed a day longer though. I must admit after reading all the reviews I was a little aprehensive about staying here...but upon arrving at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised. We didnt get there til around 5pm, and we got a parking spot right outside the hotel, which was great, since alot of people said parking was really tight. We stayed on the 6th floor of the oceanfront hotel. The room was nice and clean, and the view was awesome! The only problem was the toilet kept running, but didnt really bother us too much...had no problems sleeping...lol. We did eat dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, good food, prices were bad either, and the drinks are good as well...gotta try the strawberry daquari...so good. We also ate at breakfast at Pochantas Pancakes (35th st), good selection of food, and prices were resaonable as well, and did dine at Murphy's Irish Bar...we thought the place was just ok, but food was good. The weather was ok...it was overcast most of the time, but at least the rain held off at nite, and than cleared up, and than of course as we were leaving the sun came out...lol. I cant wait to come back again, and definitely stay longer, so we can enjoy the beach, and fly our kite, and go jet skiing and/or parasailing...lol. :)

I wont bore you with much, we got there late and we got the 3rd floor room, we wanted higher but it was very booked. We went to the room worried and we were pleasantly surprised. The view was excellent it's on the perfect part of the beach everthing was clean. I mean it wasnt spotless but clean bed and sheets were fine; bathroom was fine as well.

Make sure you ask for an ocean front room because if you dont you will end up in the other little hotel they have thats NOT on the beach and it looks like you can get robbed at any moment (SERIOUSLY). The check in took moments and it was fine. If you get a parking spot in front of the hotel go play the lotto right after cause that is hard to do LOL. Anyways you can park across the street be careful with SUV's it's tigh fight the higher you go. I will say this, they post a guard at the parking deck from i think 11pm - 5am. I thought that was great !

The hotel was fine, I did not eat at the restaurant below but they are close to alot of things and all the street performances are just a few mins walk from the hotel. I would go back the price is right and i didnt live in my room we went out and enjoyed the beach and attractions. Oh they also had free wireless internet and it moved pretty fast so that was a plus for when i was in the room.

I posted couple pics below of the room see for yourself it's just fine (for the price)

We stayed in the non-ocean front rooms across the street from the main Oceanfront hotel. We spent our days on the beach or in the pool and our evenings shopping or walking on the boardwalk. The room was tidy and clean. Housekeeping did a nice job everyday and were pleasant. The hotel is readily accessible to the beach and shops. And yes, you'll hear the occasional jet roaring in and out of the Naval Air Station sometimes late at night. That's part of living in Virginia Beach. If you are looking for accommodations that you'd receive at the Ritz Carlton, don't stay here. If you want a relatively inexpensive place to stay that is clean and convenient, this is the place. We'll be back for certain. - Tim9760 from Pennsylvania

We stayed here the last 2 summers. The location is near Casey's restaurant, Pizzeria Pie and breakfast sometimes at Pocahontis. Other times we ate breakfast at Angelo's on the patio and inside at the hotel. Near Neptune Park and stores. We liked our balcony, watching bikers and the ocean. Easy access to the ocean.
Downfall- hot hallways, hard beds and a little slow at the front desk. Plus they didn't sweep our rooms & clean our bathroom. They did change the beds each day and brought clean towels, just would like to have the sand swept up. Plus parking on the hotel side is hard to get and keep, or you have to go in the tower across the street.
Would still recommend, has a nice pool, exercise room and ice cream parlor, which we were too busy to use.

The location of The Best Western—Oceanfront hotel is great and for those who spend most of their time outside, it is well worth the stay. The view from our 4th floor balcony was wonderful. One morning we had the great opportunity to see a dolphin swimming near the shoreline. There are two buildings, so be sure to ask for an oceanfront room when making reservations or you might end up across the street in a smaller complex. There is a small refrigerator in the room, but I would not recommend using it for anything other than for storing beverages, as it never seemed to be very cold. The rooms aren’t pristine, but for a beachfront hotel it was better than expected. Considering that we stayed during prime vacation time, the hotel was surprisingly quiet. I must say, though, this hotel provides THE THINNEST toilet paper I have ever seen!!

There is a restaurant called Angelo’s By The Sea on the first floor. The seafood is very good and the portions are plentiful. The prices, however, might be a bit steep for some people, especially for those traveling with children. There is also a small shop next to the indoor pool area that sells ice cream and hot dogs for others who would like lighter fare.

The parking spots are limited and were constantly filled during the time we were there. I would highly recommend leaving your car in the lot and taking public transportation or walking as much as possible. The hotel is within walking distance of Neptune Park, miniature golf courses, as well as many shops and restaurants. There is also a “Wave” trolley stop just across the street for people who don’t want to walk. The drivers are very friendly and helpful. All-day passes are available for $2.00.

Overall, I think this hotel is worth the price and again, the location is great!

We just came back from VA BCH and found this hotel to be a great value for the price. We had an oceanfront room 6th floor, which is a must for us. Beautiful view of the boardwalk and ocean. I'm glad we asked for a higher room as a festival was there this weekend and if you were in one of the lower floors you would have had no view from your balcony. The room was clean, clean, clean. They had no comforters on the beds, which I thought was great, because I'm always a bit apprehensive using them as you never know when they've last been cleaned. So, there was no need to have the air on full blast at nite, which meant we kept the sliding door open to hear the ocean during the nite. (not for everyone as you do get awakened quite early by the beach sweepers). We purchased coffee from the onsite restaurant which was a bit pricey, $4.00 for 2 cups. But, hey it was convenient. We never ate there, but looked like they had some nice specials and quite a bit to choose from. Another plus, these are ALL NON SMOKING ROOMS. I'm a smoker, but dont smoke in my own home, so dont like the smell in close quarters. Not many parking spaces out front of the main building, but they do have a parking deck across the street. Problem was that we were attending grad parties and not returning til late a t nite and found that the entire parking deck was full. Ended up parking on the ramps. The staff was okay with this, so worked for us. Morning and afternoon front desk staff were very courteous and helpful. Graveyard shift clerk was pretty pathetic. I went to checkout at 4:30 am and there was a sign on the front desk stating they were temporarily away. I came back down at 5:00am and the sign was still there. However, when I looked over at the computers, there was the front desk clerk. Didnt utter a single word to me, when he did I couldnt understand him as he mumbled. No good bye and thank you for staying with us. NOPE. Handed me the bill and walked away. While we were putting our luggage in the car, we looked back in the lobby and he was asleep on the sofa. Oh well, glad we only had to deal with him at checkout, and we said good thing we works nite shift! We would stay here again, just for the cleanliness and location alone! Oh, almost forgot they also had free wireless internet, LOVED IT

We were a little nervouss because neither of us had been to VB before. The hotel location was right in the middle of every thing. We had the balcony ocean view and that was worth it. The staff was very nice and the was reasonably clean. I've seen better but i've also seen worse. The parking was tight but buses run all day on the strip for a $2 day pass.
