Best Western Plus Sandcastle Beachfront Hotel
Ranked #6 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 1, 2013

As far as ocean front hotels go, this was a quality place to stay. The place has been completely renovated and all of the rooms are beautiful. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Our only complaint was the hotel restaurant. Perhaps they're going to renovate that in the future (I hope so!)

Our stay was extremely nice; the hotel was clean and fresh. We were right on the ocean and sat on the deck for breakfast everyone morning to watch the sun come up. Everyone from the maids to the front desk could not have been any nicer and accommodating. Will definitely stay there again

What a great hotel and location. Right on the beach. We had a balcony & I sat out there watching the ocean & all the boats coming & going from Hampton Road. It was just a short jaunt to the beach to walk & look for shells. The staff was superb, especially Leann who took time to answer some of questions about the local while checking us in. It was easy to park the car to & quite a lot to walk to. When I return to VA Beach area, I most definitely would like to stay here again.

The Sandcastle at VA Beach has always been a favorite place to stay for many years prior to becoming a Best Western Resort Hotel. The numerous upgrades made our most recent stay more enjoyable and take the hotel to a much higher level. We will always make this our first choice in VA Beach do to the relaxed welcoming feeling experienced especially now with the classy finishes!

We were extremely happy with our room, the service was fa-nominal, and accommodations from the hotel were all great. We had the free breakfast every morning and we enjoyed it beyond belief. The only thing I would have added was Belgian Waffles. But the biscuits and gravy were to die for and the pancakes also. I couldn't have asked for a better get away. I would highly recommend this hotel and the Pier 14 Restaurant.

We stayed for a US Navy Ship Reunion. The staff was so accomodating, friendly and helpful. Front Desk Staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The location was amazing, right on the beach with a lovely ocean/beach/pier view. Beds were comfy, room was clean, lovely balcony and the bathroom was clean. We had to leave very early in the morning to travel home, so we did not get to try the complimentary breakfast, but it sounded wonderful. Would highly recommend this hotel!

My husband surpised me with an Anniversary getaway to Virginia Beach. We had no reservations but since Best Western in biker friendly we always try to find one at our destination. From the minute I called to see if any rooms where available until the minute I checked out four days later, everyone from start to finish was a pleasure to deal with. The rooms are lovely and the beds are very comfortable. We will be returning again on one of our getaways Im sure of that.
