    « Anniversary, Mothers Day Get Away »

    The employees throughout the hotel where very polite and professional. From the front desk to housekeeping where all so nice. We were greeted as soon as we arrived. Asked multiple time throughout our stay if everything was ok. Kept us stocked up with clean towels. We would def. stay here again

    « Evone, works breakfast buffet, gets a 10! »

    This is my first online review but I just have to give Evone, who works the breakfast buffet, an excellent rating. What a wonderful personality! She is perfect for that position. She just naturally reaches out to people of all ages (the kids love her), such a positive, happy, friendly attitude, and right there to help with anything you need. I looked forward to her smile and greeting each morning of our stay! Also enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from our balcony & the clean indoor pool.

    « Terrible »

    Terrible. Poor service. The air didn't work. The kitchen sink was stopped up. The maid didn't come to clean the room. I booked five rooms for a family get together. I was terribly embarrassed. Something was wrong with everybody's room.

    « Beautiful view! »

    Beautiful view from all rooms, as long as you are in the main building (make sure you reserve the main building!) Fantastic breakfast buffet, huge room with super nice and helpful employees. Breakfast changes slightly each day, i.e. biscuits and gravy, then grits, chicken fried steak, french toast sticks. Always make-your-own waffles and scrambled eggs, etc. Main restaurant - so so. Had a burger, it was just OK. Had the fish (fried) was not crispy. Husband had the flank steak, tasted "off". The room as I said had a wonderful view, with beautiful sunrises. Beds in the room rather hard. Not 5-star but clean and comfortable. Our room was directly over the bar/grill and I never heard a thing. Same for my neighbors - good soundproofing from my experience. Only a block or so from King Neptune statue - a must see! So awesome. It was a bit chilly when I was here, so not a lot of beach action. You can rent bicycles nearby, which I would definitely do in warm weather. They have a great bike path all along the boardwalk, and saw garbage trucks and sand-combing vehicles every morning. Very clean area! We did not use either the indoor or outdoor pool, but I did look at them and they looked well-kept. Would like to return when it's a bit warmer!

    « Great Place to Stay »

    Stayed here for one night after staying in a rental house for a few days. You can't beat the location and price! We had an ocean view room and it was awesome. Breakfast was great, lounge was nice and staff were friendly. Only negative was that only one elevator was working, so we either had to wait several minutes or take the stairs. It looked like it was being repaired one the day we were leaving. Breakfast was great too... the breakfast room is huge so it's easy to find a seat. I would absolutely stay here again!

    « The perfect welcome!!! »

    We had a wonderful welcome by Sharia when we arrived. We'd been traveling for the last two weeks and she was by far the best and most friendly person we've encountered during our time on the road. Our room and view of the boardwalk were perfect!!!! Will definitely be back if we make it this way again.

    The price was terrific and the location was terrific! We were close to everything! The room was very clean. Very easy access to the beach. The staff was great too. We had a big cheer competition to attend and even though it was crowded at the beach the hotel was perfect and it accommodated everyone nicely. We didn't have to wait on elevators long to change floors like other hotels

    We got a really nice room for a very reasonable price in April, with view on the ocean and a balcony. Weather wasn't as warm as we had hoped, but that's definitely not the hotel's fault ;) Overall our experience was very positive and we'd definitely recommend this hotel!

    This was a very good hotel for the price. It was clean and right on the beach. It was in a good area and had breakfast, a fitness center, and restaurant. I couldn't get my internet to work but then again I didn't report the problem. I would stay there again.

    This is a clean, very nice hotel. The sound of the ocean coming thru the balcony door and the view was perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel and plan on going back. The boardwalk is just a few steps from hotel and some very nice souvenir shops across street.

    « Anniversary night away Apr 7th »

    Just stayed here for one night to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We live in Hampton and made the short drive over arriving right at 4pm. Check-in was efficient and staff at the front desk were very pleasant. Parking lot was full so we had to park across the street. Not really a problem except the weather was not the best with rain. Our room was 512 with a balcony overlooking the beautiful beach. The room was clean, bed and pillows were comfortable, and everything worked perfectly. We didn't get to enjoy the balcony till the next morning due to rain but we did enjoy the view with the curtains open. Despite the bad weather we did enjoy the room, the view, and a nice bottle of wine. Check out in the morning was quick and painless. For our next quick weekend getaway we will definitely consider staying here again.

    « Clean »

    We spent some time on in the hotel due to rain and wind... I would have asked the front desk to calm the weather down but i was pretty sure they hand no control over Mother Nature. Cleaning crews throughout the hotel were super friendly always greeting guests as they walked by. Our room was clean upon our entry and everything thing was neat and organized well. Booking was a breeze when I called the hotel direct also. Check out was easy because when I checked in they had me initial no smoking and that they could email the final check out bill. Everything was very pleasant here. Thank you to all the employees it was a good experience. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. No bugs. Which was a plus

    « Reasonable rates, great location and love the amenities! »

    my mom and I stayed in late February.. We always stay on the highest floor 8th) if possible.. they were putting in new carpeting which looks great.. The ocean view is superb love the size fridge and microwave.. A value for the money.. The heated indoor pool is a nice size and love that they have a restaurant that overlooks the boardwalk.. The free breakfast is a really good one--very hearty with eggs, bacon or sausage.i've had boiled eggs as well on occasion, 2 waffle makers with prepoured batter.. Cereals oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt and nuts-- bagels toast pancakes sometimes--something to suit everyone's taste.. once they had country fried steak during our stay. with gravy.Yum!.--A big thank you to chef Sterling for making sure I had bacon (he knows it's my favorite) before it was depleted or he made a new batch.. Shelby gave me fresh pancakes because mine had gotten cold as I was talking with fellow traveler.. That attentive staff is a real magnet for me choosing this hotel.. Evonne as well as a hostess never forgets a face and catching up with her "regulars" and making sure all is replenished and you know where everything is that you need.. Jonathan and Robyn at the desk process my best western travel cards effortlessly and make sure I'm taking advantage of them... Debbie at the front desk told me about a landmark restaurant (Pollards) which does great southern fried chicken..love their okra too and sweet potato fries.. she printed out the directions without batting an eye..Kim and sarah also were giving me options on other places of interest or directions. Hope I didn't leave anyone out).. These folks have a mission and its for you to RELAX and let them take care of you when you are their guest..This is my go-to place 5 or some times a year...!!

    « Perfect location at a great price »

    Million dollar view for very inexpensive. Check in staff was exceptional. The lady bartender with long blonde hair was just the friendliest, informative nice gal. She gave me some great options to go eat close by and told me where to go shopping and history of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Very nice gal, great at her job! my only complaint of this location would be to put extra blankets in the room. I had to crank my heater and the sheets and paper thin blanket just wasn't enough on a very cold night of 35 degrees.

    « Ok stay here at this hotel »

    We stayed here on our way back from Savannah Georgia. Our room was dated and the bathroom very small. It did have a good view of the ocean which was nice. The breakfast was average at best. We would pick a different hotel if we come back to Virginia beach hands down.

    « hard bed lack of extra sheets »

    The hotel was in a good location. Most of the hotel staff were friendly, but make sure you bring extra sheets. My daughter got sick and when I asked for extra sheets I was told they didn't have stock. They weren't able to bring us the blankets they had in replace of sheets. The cleaning staff was very helpful and nice.

    « Cheer competition »

    We stayed for a cheer competition. Great location as we could look at the ocean direct from our room. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions. The price for this time of the year is a bit high but not too bad. The free breakfast was average but it was good enough to start the day. I'd stay here again if I came back.

    « Second visit to this hotel. We enjoyed ourselves each time »

    « Location is great »

    The place is great, we got the oceanfront accommodation, breakfast is nice, rooms are adequate. The only thing I want is to suggest to management about employee parking, they should have employee designated parking slots, while we were there, the parking in front of the nuilding is full, although there is an adjacent parking lot opposite but we wanted to be near the building since we have lots of bags to carry, we found out that some employees are parking their vehicle at the guests' parking lot, thus, it's quite inconvenient for those who had been through a long travel and couldn't find available slots as they are taken already by employees. Apart from that, all is well.

    « POLAR PLUNGE weekend! (My 19th year) »

    I look forward to Polar Plunge weekend every year! It is such a great cause and I raise money for Special Olympics because they have a very special place in my heart. I used to stay at a very fancy place with a beautiful suite. However, last year I came to best Western plus, and the people there made me want to come back again this year! I called the manager, Dawn Wheeler, and she was so kind and helpful! In fact, I would like to thank EVERYONE at the front desk for being so warm and welcoming, and accommodating in every way! Dawn, Sarah, Robin, Jon, Debbie, Amy, and Emily! I had all my friends book rooms at best Western plus, because I told them how gracious everyone there is. I know it is a very crazy time of year, yet somehow they all bring a big smile and A truly genuine warmth not only to me, but to all of my guests that I invited. There was a maintenance man, he did not give me his name, but brought me a table, and when I told him I needed a different table to set up a bit of a food venue, he didn't complain, he just came back and when I try to offer him money, he said there is no need, I'm happy to do it. Then I chased him down the hall and gave him money! And the room attendants could not have been nicer ,full of smiles ,and just so pleasant!! Every time anyone asks me where to go, I tell them best western Plus! 28th and ahalf Street, you will never meet a better staff! I am a local, but when I go to polar plunge I spend the whole weekend in a hotel, so that I do not have to drive. I will continue to support this hotel simply because of the staff! I want to thank each and everyone of them, I know how stressful it can be, I have been in the service industry my entire life. There is a huge difference between ?putting on a smile? and actually being happy to make your guests feel welcome. Whatever your recipe is... keep it up! I stay at the beach often in the summer as well, and I will ALWAYS stay At BEST WESTERN PLUS!!! Thank you again ! Wendy Ward

    « No sleep & awkward »

    They have the alarm going off early in the morning, so you cannot sleep!!! It is so poorly designed that people using the bathroom can be viewed by housekeeping passing by!!!! I was very uncomfortable with the room. The staff at breakfast wouldn't let me have a water bottle, as I was struggling with morning sickness and wanted to try to not be so dehydrated!

    « Tremendous value and warm service! »

    I stayed at the Best Western Plus Virginia Beach for 5 nights in February. I wanted to take a relaxing getaway at an affordable price, and this fit the bill! At check in, the employee was friendly, helpful and expedient. She also gave me a coupon for 15% off in the hotel restaurant, which I utilized that night. My room was well equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, and a balcony facing the beach. The sound of the waves is so relaxing and therapeutic. The bed was comfortable, the hotel was quiet, and the breakfast was wonderful, and included with the room rate. The highlight of my stay was Shelby, the breakfast attendant. She talked to all of the guests in the dining room, and; she has such a genuine and warm personality. She was always eager to assist and accommodate, like when a guest was having trouble with the waffle maker, she made their waffle for them, another guest had a problem operating the microwave, and she immediately went to assist him. She talked with guests and remembered details about them. For example, she was speaking to a couple who was checking out that day. She made sure that she said goodbye to them, and to have a safe trip home. When I made my coffee, I asked if there was any half anf half creamer. Shelby suggested the vanilla almond milk in the refrigerator along with the creamers to flavor my coffee. It was delicious! I worked in the service industry for 15 years, and; I genuinely appreciate employees that go above and beyond, and who genuinely enjoy their job. Shelby is one of those rare gems that you find very seldom. She was a pleasure to meet and speak with, and she left quite an impression on me. A man that was seated at a table next to me on Sunday said, "thank you for your service, we sure do appreciate you." Yes, I was highly satisfied with my accommodations and the superb value. But by far, Shelby was the highlight of my stay, and, I am happy to have met her.

    We were just passing through and booked this hotel, it was great! The breakfast was all you could want, the room overlooked the beach so we could see the sunrise.

    We really enjoyed our quick stay over the holidays. We came to see the Christmas lights on the boardwalk and were disappointed that they did not come all the way down to the hotel this year. However the comfort-ability and the proximity to the beach made up for this. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean and quiet. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

    We stayed one night and had a ocean front room which was nice but there were smokers next to us on one side . That was very irrating for we are not smokers and the rooms clearly say no smoking . We have stayed in best western plus hotel before and it was real nice but this hotel is one that was renovated and is an older hotel. The stay was ok, the breakfast was too crowded and they couldn't keep up with the food with the amount of people there . The view was really nice just wish we didn't have the smell of smoke

    Best Western ALWAYS our choice. Though employees may change over time (not often) the quality of the service does not! They are professional, friendly but not familiar.

    « Good ?clean' stay but the breakfast could use a makeover »

    First, my overall experience was a positive one. The room was clean and bed comfortable the indoor pool BUT: The bathroom could use some attention. Thee were spots around the bathtub where mildew and hard water stains were present and GFCI outlet was not secured properly. The breakfast was mediocre. The staff handed out tickets for the breakfast upon checkin and we expected something spectacular but boy were we wrong. The breakfast staff was not pleasant to work with and they seemed like they hated their job. Food was being replenished so slowly that many just left. Please, please correct this Best Western! You are disappointing potential returning guests.

    Spent one night on the property, the staff was friendly, the hotel was in need of some upgrades. The best thing about the room was the balcony and the view of the beach. The price wasn't bad, not sure if would pay to stay there during the peak season. Not sure if worth a trip back!

    It is a great view and that's the only reason I gave it a 4. As far as the room goes it is a 3. It was clean, but the walls had cracks in them and there was a track at the base of the door on the inside that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years, might have been dead bugs but I wasn't spending any time looking. The rooms are smaller than what I have encountered at Best Westerns in the past. It does have more cable channels than other hotels I have stayed in, but not HBO or any pay channels.

    This is an older hotel, however I thought it was very clean and the staff was wonderful!! I got a great rate on a travel site and was surprised at how well the little details in the room were done well. Lots of towels, clean, it looked well put together. Impressed! I stayed on the 8th floor and loved hearing the sounds of the ocean. The bed was very comfortable. The food at breakfast was disappointing. Lotsnofbit, but overcooked. But, again, all of the staff were attentive and great! Half the experience no matter where you go is how well you are treated.

    Wasn't what I expected of a best western hotel. 1 room wasn't cleaned and smell pretty bad and 2 room wasn't as up to par either. Outside appearance doesn't match well with inside appearance. Outside looked as if it was a good hotel, our room had a smell as if it could have been bad ventilation. Breakfast was delicious and nice.

    Great stay in every way. We had beachfront views and a balcony. We left the door open so we could enjoy the sounds of the waves both going to sleep and waking up. The breakfast was a step above with a variety of cold and hot items. The concierge was very helpful in recommending things to do and where to eat. There was free WiFi and parking. The room was clean with good water pressure in the shower and nice fluffy absorbent bath towels. Really a great stay overall and a real value at an off-season price (after Thanksgiving).

    « Nice visit over Thanksgiving »

    BFF and I spent two days relaxing at the beach in this no frills hotel. First, the parking lot gets full really fast, but the desk clerks didn't provide any alternatives when checking in. We parked on a side street with no issues because it's off-season and the meters aren't running. Check-in took less than 5 minutes and we were off to our oceanfront room. The room was very clean, but the door didn't shut unless you slammed it closed. The bathroom was miniature, as the toilet is so close to the toilet paper holder that it's uncomfortable for someone with sizable hips. A microwave and refrigerator are provided. The Wifi was strong but inconsistent, and I had to sign in every time I opened a new app. Kinda irritating. Breakfast looked to be accommodating, even though we couldn't fully partake because there were very limited vegetarian options. The indoor pool was warm enough for a winter swim, and the fitness center could have probably accommodated up to 8 people without feeling crowded (even though it was vacant). I would return to this hotel as one of my options, but probably not in the summer when crowds can be overwhelming.

    Excellent hotel to stay in Virginia Beach. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Although it is an older hotel it is always updated and clean. The ocean front view is breathtaking.

    All of the rooms come with a balcony with a beach front view. The rooms are spacious and the layout works well with a party of 2 or 4. Each balcony is sealed off from the other rooms so even if everyone is out there, there is a sense of privacy. The location is centrally situated on the boardwalk. There is plenty of parking tho some will have to park across the street in the overflow parking garage.

They even offer free breakfast which if you are watching your budget like us it's always a great find that you stay at a place with breakfast included.

    « Good room but no storage for cosmetics »

    Room was nice and was clean. My only complaint was there is NO storage in bathroom for cosmetics even though there is plenty of space for a shelf. It would be very helpful if they would put up one. Also, it seems when I signed up to not have my sheets changed every night, it apparently gave them permission to do nothing in our room.

    « Rough Start but Excellent Finish »

    Hotels in Virginia Beach can be expensive. Over the years, I've stayed at a few different hotels in VB and chose them based upon their rates. That's how I found the Best Western Plus - it was about $300 cheaper (for 4 nights) than the Holiday Inn a few doors down. We had a rough start at the hotel. After a long drive and arriving after 11 pm, we checked in and went to the room and the key wouldn't open the door. Back to the front desk and after it was reprogrammed, it still didn't work. The front desk clerk was great about it and gave us a different room. After getting to the new room, I took a trip to the vending machine that was right outside the room. The prices were reasonable, but they didn't have any water or diet sodas. A quick trip through the hotel checking the other machines and they weren't stocked either. The rooms are smaller that others I have stayed at nearby. We had a 4 night stay, so we made it work. The breakfast room was huge, there was ample seating, the food was good and staff was friendly. It was open from 6 am until 10 am, even on the weekend. It was definitely a benefit we didn't expect. There was a restaurant in the hotel. We didn't eat there, but we did have drinks there and it got pretty busy. It's a little outdated and could use a refresh, but was fine for what we needed. There is a parking lot in front of the hotel and a 3 floor parking garage across the street. The parking garage has a 7' foot limit. The layout is tight, but the spaces easily accommodated our medium sized SUV. You just have to take your time getting into the spaces and it definitely helps having a back-up camera. I'm sure that the hotel staff would help you if you have a larger sized vehicle that won't fit in the garage. At one point during our trip, they had 3 buses parked on property. Also, on Saturday night there was a staff member checking parking permits as you drove into the garage. We also saw staff checking parking tags Monday morning at 11 am, so they do enforce their parking to ensure guests have space. The TV had more channels that other hotels I have stayed at. There is a pretty good selection to choose from. The internet was fast and there was no limit to the amount of devices you could connect. I checked it a few times and it was about 5 Mbps up and down. The air conditioning and the refrigerator (no freezer) worked well and the room had a microwave. The building has fire sprinklers throughout. There was good water pressure on the 5th floor and we never ran out of hot water. There was also a standup wardrobe that had a safe and ironing board (but I didn't see an iron). The bathroom is small - however the sink is located outside the bathroom, so that helps if 2 people need to get ready. There were a few elevators that were available and they all worked well. You can also use the steps! I'm not the type to inspect every nook and cranny to find things to pick about. It's a temporary place to stay. The room looked and smelled clean. The room had a great view of the ocean and was conveniently located. Overall, we had an excellent experience and would not hesitate to stay here in the future!

    « Hotel Room w/View of Ocean »

    This hotel is quite old. The rooms are small but are clean. Plumbing is updated but the bathroom is extremely small. The air conditioning is loud and in our room there was a buzzing sound. Fortunately, we brought ear plugs so that we could sleep. The refrigerator was great and there was microwave but we did not use it. The rooms should be equipped with a small table near the bathroom sink as there was not enough room to put our toiletries. We set up the ironing board and lined the top with a towel. The view from the balcony was truly outstanding. It faced the east and we could witness sunrises in the morning and sit out comfortably in the afternoon and take in the activities on the beach and boardwalk.

    « Amazing Experience for VA Beach! »

    Stayed in the Best Western plus over the weekend, 4 nights late into the season. I was blown away for the price I paid at the time I was about 150 dollars a night, Breakfast included a huge open breakfast bar with Fried Potatoes, Eggs, Gravy, Biscuits, sausage and bacon, Pancakes, French Toast, and I loved the waffles! Fruit was available and bagels and juices, milk and coffee. I actually might have missed some stuff but I know that stuff for sure, that's what I had for breakfast! I felt like I could have anything I wanted and as much as I liked! A great breakfast is a great way to start any day! Overall the place was CLEAN as any place I have ever stayed. I am naturally a bit leery when staying in hotel rooms, but this one was very clean and well kept. I felt right at home. In an honest review, the worst feature of the entire weekend stay was the mattress. This is prolly just bias though, I am one of those guys who financed a 3000 dollar mattress at home and spoiled myself in its comfort. Now no other mattress will do, so it would be impractical to ask a hotel to live up to that standard. The balcony view was EXCELLENT! overlooking the beach. Sunrise was best viewed from the balcony and was amazing! They have both an outdoor in-ground pool and a indoor HEATED in-ground pool with a spa in the corner. So dont worry about it if it rains or gets cold, The pool is really nice! It goes from 3 to 5.5 feet deep! I went down to the bar and discovered they had my favorite IBC Rootbeer! I love that stuff! I ended up purchasing 5 bottles over the weekend! OVERALL, I had no real unpleasant experiences. The location is right in the middle of some really great restaurants. I would recommend "Lager Heads" and "YNot Italian" for a really great date! The Starbucks is only a couple blocks away, (We walked there every day), There were so many places to eat locally, We leterally NEVER moved our car. I still never got to try the mexican haha! The famous statue of Neptune is only a block or so away. Oh ya, There is bicycle paths all around the beach and thru town. Little roads made especially for bicycles. I highly recommend you bring your bicycles and use them to explore the town! This place is what I would call IDEAL and I would easily go back anytime. The hotel is right about CENTER of town. There was a lot to see and do there! I loved it!

Breakfast gets old fast and would like an outside venue. Both keys stopped working at different times.

    « Mixed review »

    I didn't stay in the Ocean view side of the hotel, but other family members did. My room was bigger, it wasn't maintained as well as the Ocean view rooms. Maintenance was needed in my room, for example, the toilet roll holder wasn't in properly. I knew it was a matter of time that it would fall out before we left, and it did. The fridge was controlled by the main light switch. We found out too late when our drinks became warm overnight. Water stains on the ceiling, I think from the roof. Our room backed onto the street where a bar with a live band outside of our window. The saving grace was the hotel staff, housekeeping was extremely helpful for me. The breakfast was great. The only downside was they offer a great selection for non-beef and pork meat eaters. Breakfast staff is awesome.

    « Could be better »

    I stayed at Best Western Plus, Virginia Beach for approximately 8 nights in August. At first, I was impressed with the look of the hotel and rooms. As my stay there went on, there were many problems--housekeeping failed to clean my room 3 days during my stay (along with many others on my floor), when they did come, they didn't give enough towels or leave toilet paper, cups, etc. and sometimes, they didn't clean well enough because they were in a rush. They seemed more focused on cleaning rooms of those who checked out on that day than cleaning occupied guest rooms. I was even told by one of the housekeepers that they are forced by their supervisor to clean the checked out rooms first which doesn't leave much time to do a good job or even go into the occupied rooms. I also saw a cockroach in the hallway one day...gross! It was disappointing because I had high hopes upon arriving--it's in a great location, the continental breakfast is good, the room setup is nice and the balcony gives you an awesome view of the ocean.

    we have never stayed at this motel.. upon arriving.. we didn't know you could only have one car per space..or room. we had 4 adults and a child, and just got one room, so we had to take 2 cars to have enough room and a safe 6 hour drive. . the parking lot is very small , and limited.. so my son had to park 2 blocks up in a parking garage which he had to pay to park. this really up set us. and the air condition didn't really keep the room as cool as it should have but was ok.. other than this.. the motel is very clean, great location, staff, and continental breakfast. the indoor pool was great and outside pool is across the street was great as well.. we would stay at this motel again

    Evone is an absolute joy! She was very friendly and helped out greatly at breakfast (especially with the waffle maker!) All the staff we encountered have been friendly. Myca, one of the house keeping staff, was always friendly and smiling. Standard ocean view room is okay. Bathroom size is the smallest I've ever been in with a hotel stay, but it served it's purpose. The location is great. Loved that we could conveniently walk outside to the beach. Breakfast had a variety of options from sausage, waffles, eggs, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt & breads. Few items switched up daily. Indoor pool was always crowded (we went after 3pm) but also served it's purpose for us. All in all, we would stay here again but will end up upgrading to a bigger room. (We had 4 total in a standard room. We are spoiled with more space!)

    We have stayed at this hotel multiple times in the past, and, the service and friendly staff have always been excellent, as they were this visit. Hotel is clean, beds are comfortable, linens are of good quality,service is good. Can't imagine staying at any other hotel when we visit Va. Beach.

    « Great Value, Great Staff »

    We stayed at the smaller of the two buildings which was more affordable. We knew going in that it was a motel like building so we didn't expect much. The rooms were clean and the staff was very kind and accommodating. The outdoor pool was right there and the beach was right across the street so the location couldn't have been more perfect for the price we paid. Breakfast had lots of options but they weren't very high quality. It's great for kids but not for trying to eat healthy. The gym was nice and clean. I do not recommend eating at the restaurant at the hotel because it is overpriced and the food was not very good. My husband got the brisket which was a special for that day and it was horrible and I got a burger which had Grisel (sp?) In it. Overall if you're looking for some place to stay under $200 a night that is close to the beach and has a fridge and a pool this is a great place to stay.

    This is a great family friendly beachfront hotel in Virginia Beach. VA. The front desk staff is great, very helpful concierge for visitors on what to do in the area. The attached restaurant makes it easy when you are off the beach and reasonably priced. Breakfast is included with your stay and the morning staff are wonderful.The hotel is comfortable and all the rooms have a balcony overlooking the boardwalk and the ocean. This is a great hotel for families

    I can not believe how dirty the room was.... the walls were dirty, the door to the deck was broke, the ceiling in the bathroom was falling in and the vent in the bathroom had about a years worth of dust on it, also the air conditioner had some kind of something all over the front of it, not cleaned off, the bathroom floor was cracked. It was completely filthy. I don't know if you only have that one room that is that bad, or these other people that say its clean, just live like that??? Also there were bugs inside the light fixture in the bathroom. It was room 719 if you want to check it out!!!! TERRIBLE!!!

    « On the Beach but needs a but of attention »

    We stayed here in May 2017 (I am late posting). We asked for a handicapped accessible room and the request was granted. Large but not so comfortable. Only two "kitchen chairs" to sit on. The walk-in shower had "Issues". We finally found a way to make it "able to use". The housekeeping schedule also had "issues". Our room was not serviced several times - due to an incorrect list of occupied rooms. Parking was VERY easy - they have room in the front of the hotel plus a large lot and garage just across the street. Breakfast is one of the best I have ever seen. GREAT food and WONDERFUL service. Very large seating area. The restaurant is so-so. Service was good but the menu was lacking. The food itself was just OK. The front desk staff was very helpful and tried hard to take care of any short-comings,

    The beach views and beach access could not have been better! The sunrise and sets from the balcony were the same being viewed at the Hilton two blocks down at a much high price! Breakfast was adequate but it was provided with the cost of the room so i'm not complaining about that either! All in all it was a nice stay. I would like to mention the fact that there was no ice in the breakfast room left a lot to be desired and no ice machines on the 1st 4th or 8th floor was also a bummer since i was on the 4th floor and had to run up whenever i wanted a cold drink. It would also be nice to have a lifeguard in at least one of the pools since they were always crowded with kids jumping off the sides.The bathroom was REALLY tight (the face bowl was on the outside) but was clean. There were not enough luggage carts so we had to carry our bags down without one - which was a bit much for us. (Someone told me people take them up to their room at night so they have one in the morning. Unfortunately, that says something about the clientele - not necessarily the hotel.) Everyone was nice and polite despite being very busy.

    « Best Western 'plus' ...should be 'minus' »

    I'm on a budget so couldn't go with ocean view, I assumed non ocean view is at least inside of the hotel premise ....well, think again. You will be told to go (across the road ) to what appears to be a motel ( the definition of motel is 'car parked outside of door'...right? Well, view my pic. It was awful ...for $158 I was thrown into a room dated back in the 60's....by the way, I wasn't born in the 60's yet received a low popcorn ceiling just the same. Therefore, if you are 6 ft tall prepare to limbo your way in the bathroom. Don't you just hate when hotels show you the pictures they took when the hotel was built 30 years ago? Unfortunately there isn't a zero star option.

    I come to the Tidewater area quite often on business. The location is central, for me, to meet, entertain and complete my business with my clients. It's very nice to set my table near the balcony overlooking the ocean and do my paperwork. I stay here when I have business in or near Virginia Beach. Sometimes my wife can join me there after I'm done with my appointments and then my trip is complete.

    Actually found this hotel by waling around Vrginia Beach during our stay at another hotel. The NON-oceanfront hotel caught our eye as we were getting frozen yogurt next door. We literally went back to current hotel and checked out and checked in at Bet Western! Room was right by pool. First room had air conditioning problems, however maintenance came right over and management decided just to move us right away so we weren't inconvenienced. GREAT staff, GREAT stay!

    « Staff with attitude, bad »

    We arrived about 5 in the evening. I went in and got out my credit card photo ID and diamond select membership card. As I was heading to the staff person she said last name. No hello how are you no pleasantries. She explained that I would have to probably park across the street in the parking structure. She did mention breakfast from 6 to 10. This was the most of the conversation. There were no upgrades available since they were booked. I later on that evening saw one of the staff people pull out of the front parking area and overheard them say about how staff parks in front and guests can park across the street. No mention of a restaurant was included. The rewards benefits were not discussed either. Express checkout was not an option I guess either. The whole check in was not great. The room and hotel were average. Not worth the price. If you like the view of the ocean from the balcony while sitting you must also enjoy having a 6 inch diameter bar block your View. I understand the need for safety and a balcony but it should have chairs that help give a view. The winter decorations outside the window where something. I would not stay there again for the value I received.

    « Falls short of expectations »

    We booked for a girls trip, and I wish we would have spent a little more to go elsewhere. We were greeted at check in by a man who could not even be bothered to take out his headphones to check us in. Our room was not in the hotel as we expected but across the street in their motel like rooms. Our room was clean but outdated and smelled like mildew. The shower curtain fell on us multiple times while showering. Although I was originally excited to see that breakfast was included, it was terrible. Half microwaved French toast sticks and eggs that were grey at the edges. Housekeeping personnel were very pleasant and beach proximity was ideal, but overall it was like a stay at a low class motel and not at all what I expected from a Best Western Plus. It is definitely worth it to spend a little more for a better hotel, even if you're going to be in the room a minimal amount of time like we were. And if you are going on a super tight budget then just book a cheap motel for the same experience.

    Non oceanfront stay. We were put in s building across the main rd. We paid almost 110$ a night to sleep in a rundown room with shower curtain mold, and a stench throughout. We called front desk to complain but after no help with Internet access we called for, and then calling to get no answer, we left it alone. We have 3 children so we spent most of our time outside. We did enjoy the indoor pool and breakfast, but it was unfortunate we had to travel from across the street each time. They really need to lower the price, and make it clear on the non oceanfront rooms.

    « Where is the plus? »

    We made our reservation for this hotel based on mostly favorable reviews we read on this site. I made a request for a newly renovated room because this was a birthday trip for my husband. And while the hotel was not to be the highlight of our trip, I still wanted it to be enjoyable. When we checked in, it was quick and painless. Nisha checked us in and I was expecting big smiles and welcomes based on the reviews I had seen. She wasn't unpleasant but I wouldn't say I felt especially welcomed. We entered our room and were underwhelmed at best. Room 517 to be exact. There was damage to the wall by the door frame. Black marks on the wall. It looked tidy but I wouldn't call it clean. We changed and headed to our concert. The bathroom was decently sized but only one shelf, over the toilet where all the towels were crammed. There was black mold and green water stains on the shower curtain. Basic toiletries were fine. Our clock wasn't plugged in and really I didn't want to dig around to find the outlet. I doubt the floors had been vacuumed recently as there was a variety of debris on the floor including a toenail. EWWW!!!!! there was a tiny but sturdy table and chairs. One small dresser that the TV was sitting on. No plastic "dirty laundry" bag in the closet. The AC was not silent but the room temp was comfy. People raved about the breakfast. Well....no. Definitely not a plus. The eggs were watery, the potatoes had an interesting almost chemical flavor, the coffee was terrible. Dispenser coffee is just not good. Fresh Brewed is always worth the effort. I can excuse a poor breakfast if the coffee is good. I will say the lady working there was amazing and welcomed everyone like a long lost family member or best friend. Also there was plenty of seating. Check out was again quick. No questions of how our stay was or thanking us for staying. The walkways and shrubs outside are littered with cigarette butts and trash. Just a sign that this property is not really being cared for. I never felt unsafe but I definitely never felt comfortable. We didn't use either pool so I can't comment on those. We will not stay here again. I just wonder, if this is a Best Western Plus, what is a regular plain old Best Western like?

    « Hard work »

    From the moment we arrived on Friday night at 10pm this stay has been hard work. We struggled to find a safe space to check in without the risk of our car being bumped. The car park was full and there was no check in parking. We later parked in the hotel garage across the road. Stood at the check in counter and the Receptionist checked in somebody before us. We got to our room. The 1st thing we noticed was white mess on the carpet. 2nd time of asking it was cleaned up. However the real problem was the carpet by the window was soaking. Sadly we didn't notice this until we found our bags and my slippers soaking. OK there had been heavy storm that day but the staff could have warned us. They knew of the problem. We chose to sit on the balcony. However before we could sit down we spent 15 mins cleaning the filthy chairs. Finally the tv control did not work properly. The Receptionist said I know and sent up a replacement. On the positive side the breakfast was better than we expected

    « Great Views, Friendly Staff, But the place is falling apart »

    The good: front desk (with one exception) were very friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast staff ( especially Evone ) were outstanding and should get raises. Housekeeping ( especially Jo on the 4th floor ) were hardworking. Room has TV. Microwave, large minifrig. Good beds, clean bathroom, nice shower. The views from the room (except ground floor) were beautiful. Location to beach and restaurants is great. The bad: parking is a nightmare. At the hotel, it is a bottleneck and so tight cars almost collide. Additional parking is across a very busy Atlantic Avenue. Breakfast food quality varies: fruits, eggs, sausage standard. Weak Coffee from a push button electric dispenser. Selection heavy with carbs. One day, waffle batter so bad even teenagers staying at hotel complained about the taste. Cinnamon and other rolls prepackaged and mass produced. Poor supervision of floors: during our stay, a group of high school students staying at the hotel had taken over the 3rd floor near the elevator and had set up drinks on ironing boards just outside the elevator doors as their friends held the elevators at the third floor. The ugly: walls badly scared and scuffed. Hallways worn and in need of fresh upgrading. Our grandson said the main floor hallway outside the breakfast room looked dingy and run down. During heavy rain, ceiling outside indoor pool collapsed, windows facing Atlantic Ave on 4th floor leaked and soaked hallway rugs, and bottom floor hallway to front desk had large trash barrels to catch rain water dripping from ceiling.

    Spent this past weekend in Room 321. The glass front of the hotel is a nice feature, but tends to make the hallways very warm with the sun coming in. Rooms are beach facing, and what a view! The rooms have balconies with two chairs and a small table which catch the morning sun, and leave you enjoying the shade of the afternoon. The beds are comfortable with plenty of pillows, and the sir conditioning unit was powerful, yet quiet. Quiet enough that you can hear the waves crashing along the shore at night, which was a treat. The hotel is centrally located with many choices around for shopping and eating out. Breakfast had a nice choice of eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt, whole fresh fruits and coffee. I would definitely stay here again.

Upon check-in I realized I left my phone charger at home..I asked where the nearest place was to purchase one. Front desk gave me locations until Jonathan at front desk offered for me to use his until I checked out. That blew me away! Setting the tone for my relaxing getaway. Patrick helped with luggage cart and escorted us with luggage to the appropriate floor. I enjoyed the upgraded breakfast since the previous stay.. I enjoyed the upgrade the fresh fruit, blueberries boiled eggs adding to the yogurt , granola, love pecans craisins etc and off course eggs always love the bacon! french toast sausage, bagels, cereal. and waffles. Love the hearty complimentary breakfast and Evon and Martha as hostesses. A shout to Debbie at the front desk who is warm, courteous and professional. Thanks to efficient and friendly Robin as well, I enjoy the nice pool(certainly larger than quite a few) jets and the bench to sit on is relaxing( though not a hot tub). Location on beach -centrally located. Balcony view is great. I prefer staying on the eastern wing of hotel (the most modern). Loved the new carpet as well.

Make your own waffles, eggs, home fries, sausage and French toast sticks. Bagels, toast, cereal, apples and oranges, juice/coffee, yogurt with granola and fruit toppings. Breakfast was in a large conference room with lots of tables. Room had an oceanfront balcony, fridge and microwave. Small bathroom area and small room, but that's to be expected, I guess. 2 double beds, which seem small when you're used to a bigger bed. No desk or table area, so eating in room was not as comfortable as it would be if the room were a little bigger. Towels were nice, but beds only had a thin sheet and blanket. If your husband turns up the AC, you may have to ask for an extra blanket. Our AC unit froze up, so we had to turn it off for awhile and wait for it to thaw to get it to work again. Had the temps been higher, this may have been a problem, but it was no big deal for us. We had a late night snack one evening at the hotel restaurant and the wings and she crab soup were pretty good. The indoor heated pool is decent, not huge, but there are a couple of tables and chairs around. There are jets and a bench on one end of the pool, but no separate hot tub. Pool towels are provided inside or at the front desk for the outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is across the street. It was ice cold, even with the outdoor temp at 80 degrees (but it's still April.) Parking is minimal in front of the hotel, but there is a parking garage across the street for free with a hotel parking permit. Would I stay here again? Yes. Is it fancy? No. Do I have any real complaints? No. Is it better than a cheaper alternative? Yes. If you can afford better, go for it. If you have kids, the pool at the Holiday Inn North is nicer, but if you're heading to the beach, this is just as close, cheaper and perfectly fine for those who want a decent room that's clean.

    We stayed there one night in April. We had 2 rooms booked together. Rooms are nice and clean, comfy beds but the view from the room was not good at all as the rooms were opposite to the car park. We thought we would get the room with the sea view but our rooms are in different building across the road.It would have been amazing if we could have room with the sea view. Breakfast was not organized. Not much choices.

    « The view was nice..the service was spectacular. »

    Ok, the view was better than nice. The oceanfront with balcony left me breathless each morning at sunrise. I was chaperoning a high school field trip, and it was my first time visiting Virginia Beach. The beach itself is clean, expansive and so inviting I was tempted to take a dip..the still chilly temperature stopped me. The hotel itself is a Best Western..nice enough..clean, some renovations being done will probably address some of the wear and tear. It worked. The staff was just awesome. From the first contact, Patti, who was helping in the communal dining areas and went out of her way to get me a choice of teas when tea was not being served..to the other dining staff who greeted the hordes of teens with patience and goodwill. The front desk was also efficient, professional and accommodating. We had security assigned to our floors and they even asked us if they were disturbing us by chatting outside our door at night ( for the record, no). I'm sure there are gorgeous fancier hotels on the beach, for more money..but this hotel seemed to have it all (oh and free breakfast). I'd consider it if I return to the area, and won't hesitate to recommend to others.

    « Excellent Customer Service and beautiful view »

    This was our first time staying at a Best Western, and I did check it out on Tripdadvisor. We were greeted and checked in by Patrick. What a great experience. Patrick offers customer service with a genuine smile and you can see he loves the customers. I have stayed in many 5 star properties and this is the kind of service you expect and usually receive there, and I was pleasantly surprised and truly happy to meet him. He also offered us a ride to a surprise party down the street. Above and beyond. Our room had a beautiful oceanfront view and was very clean with a comfortable bed. We never heard a sound from another room or guest although the hotel was pretty full. Bathrooms are a little tight, but that is typical in the older properties. The carpet and bedding looked to be fairly new and in great shape. A great location right on the boardwalk makes it easy to get around. Parking was easy and we were provided with a pass to hang. Excellent Staff and nice accommodation, reasonable prices for oceanfront. Thanks again to Patrick!

    My impression of Best Western is very positive. It is a great place to stay if you are on a budget. Very reasonably priced. Indoor pool worked well for my 5 yr-old.

    We checked in on nov 4th around 6pm and arrived to it being very busy, we were greeting by a very friendly overwhelmed young gentleman, at first he couldn't find our reservation because thier had been a booking error, we were already exhausted from 9 hours of driving so that didn't help our moods, he was able to get us in a room on the 7th floor, room 721 after about 20 mins of computer work, apparently thier was a military ball that same weekend so he explained that as being a excuse for the chaos and misunderstanding, our room was nice and ocean front very clean and no issues with that, we only had a bad experience once when we sat on the balcony and endured a strong smell of what we believed to be Marijuana directly above us, tried to call the front desk no answer. Went downstairs to the front desk no one visible to address the situation to so we gave up and just walked the boardwalk, we did eat in the restaurant and had some wonderful calmari and a key lime martini that was superb.. the continental breakfast and staff was super friendly, it was so madhouse busy in thier we only ate that once and i know the staff did all they could to keep stocking the food that ran out constantly, the only other bad issue was checking out, apparently daylight savings time change had locked us out of our room before check out time and my husband went 7 flights downstairs 3 times before finally a maintenance man let us in manually to get our belongings to check out, we were not offered a apology or any complimentary benefits to ease our frustration or any discount or refund for our room, so for that reason alone ill never return. Im in the hotel business for my career and i myself would have never let a guest leave on these terms

    « Weekend getaway at the beach! »

    My wife and I needed a little bit of R&R after playing parents and grandparents to our two teenage grandchildren for two weeks while their parents were traveling. We decided upon Virginia Beach since it offered a short drive from our home and hopefully a relaxing atmosphere. After experiencing a couple of traffic related congestion scenarios on the interstate we arrived at our destination and were very comfortable with the decision to stay at this particular hotel. The front desk staff were very personable and our room although modest as to appointments was comfortable and afforded a magnificent view of the ocean. The room is a typical small hotel setting and included a microwave and small refrigerator plus an in room safe for keeping personal items while on the beach. Although the bathroom area was rather small the shower was more than adequate and with the exception of the bathroom exhaust fan which was really noisy, we may do for our brief visit. This hotel offers a complementary breakfast - typical for Best Western facilities visited in other parts of the country. There is an indoor pool plus exercise facility for those interested in these amenities. If you do visit this hotel, be sure to request the ocean front portion of the facility because there are rooms across the street in more of a motel type setting which do not afford any water views. The hotel is located conveniently between 28th and 29th St. on Atlantic Avenue which is in the heart of the Virginia Beach resort area. Parking in front of the facility is limited so you may need to park across the street in their elevated parking structure. I gave this facility a 4 due to it's convenient location and overall comfortable setting and pleasant personnel.

    Friendly staff, loved the ocean view, the clean room, the hot breakfast and most of all the lovely breakfast lady: Evone!!! Always the biggest smile and friendliest attitude, I stayed there for a week and loved it. My room was cold so maintenance person (very professional, unfortunately I don't remember his name) tried fixing the unit, but was not able to so they switched my room. The other room's adjacent residents were loud, I mean 2 am talking and laughing loud for my last nights. Both times I called the front desk and they came up and told them to keep quiet, which they did. Will defiantly stay here again!

    « Great Navy reunion/charity drive at a Great Hotel »

    Our reunion group USS JFK V2 RATS & CATS held a 4 day reunion/charity auction the Best Western, VA Beach. Rachel Hayes and Amy of the sales team were the two who put everything together for this most successful and fun reunions. The event was perfect, as quoted from many of our members who attended and the hard work of the hotel staff and our group enabled us to raise 4,000 for a navy veteran cause. The hotel provided a SUPER luncheon in the very spacious hospitality room. The food was yummy and price for the entire luncheon was GREAT like the taste and service!!!! A special thanks to Melva, Tammy, Vega, and Travon for their excellent service and hard work. The hospitality room was perfect the entire week stay well worth to use, the staff kept the area clean and were there for us for any need. Our group was also very impressed with the Bar/ Restaurant Shoreline Grill which provided a very nice hot breakfast that is include with your stay. Prices for food and drinks were good, view of boardwalk and beach perfect. Even though we had set up a make shift cocktail lounge in the hospitality room, many members still gathered at the bar area for happy hour. Off street parking also was a pleasant surprise at this hotel, and I personally think it is underestimated value for any stay at a beach front hotel. It is directly across from main hotel, and 3 level parking garage, and is part of the non ocean front hotel. Very easy to access you car, and you can see it from hotel. The rooms were very clean, the view was perfect, and at the price, I can tell you from the number of proposals I looked at ;leading up to this event, by far the best!!!! A special thanks to the housekeeping team who attended to our group, Anca, Valerie, Emma. your hard work made our stay very enjoyable!!! If your looking to hold a event like ours, either a school, family reunion, or group event, do not hesitate and call Rachel Hayes or Amy and set yourself up with a first class stay, with a first class staff. Also, to any military groups, this Hotel is extremely PRO Military, you come here and Stay!!!! Thanks again To the wonderful staff, We will see you again in 2018!!!!!!

    This was a very good choice for us. We stayed on the 3rd floor which kept us away from some of the noise. It wasn't bad anyway. The desk clerks recommended that we eat at Rudee's since we wanted seafood. It was a very good recommendation. The room was good. The only problem was the air conditioning condensate line backed up and the floor was soaking wet. They fixed it promptly but we had to have fan in there for the next 2 days to dry it up. Didn't like that part. Was good overall though!!

It was a great price for us, great location, great view, but absolutely filthy room. The ceiling had mold from past water damage, our sheets didn't look like they were changed, there was half used shampoo bottles in our shower, light burned out above our sink vanity, dirty sliding glass doors to patio, have more TV stations at home on our own TV. There was a dead bug above our mirror. The food at the restaurant was cold, even the continental breakfast. In short, I guess you get what you pay for.

    The rooms in this hotel are dated. The bathroom is so small you could hardly use the toilet, the sink faucet wasn't any better. The view from the room was great, it was oceanfront and it had a balcony comfortable enough for 2 people. The hotel has a restaurant but we waited 20 minutes to get service that never came. I know it's not high season so maybe that's why the service was lacking. We were there for the Neptune Festival though so I would think they would've been ready for the amount of people they had to be served. We weren't the only ones who walked out because of the lack of service.

    « Decent stay for a night »

    We only stayed one night, and it was probably a good thing. The room we stayed in was across the street from the main hotel and there was not a good/clear pedestrian crossing between the two buildings. This is a big concern when you're going back and forth multiple times a day to go to breakfast, the pool, the beach, etc. Also, parking is an issue, especially if your vehicle is any bigger than a ford focus. The garage is extremely tight and hard to move around in, especially if someone is coming in the opposite direction. On the other hand, the room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Staff at check-in was friendly and breakfast was ok. I would come back, especially given the price we paid, but only for a night or two max.

We asked to move to another room. The 2nd non-ocean front room had a strong mildew smell which my husband & I couldn't tolerate. The front desk was nice enough to upgrade us to an Oceanfront room next. The Oceanfront room was nice. I would next time pay the extra money and book an Oceanfront. It's worth the extra money.

    We had a room on the third floor with the ocean view, which was nice, but despite the fact that we chose a non-smoking apartment, somebody (probably under our room) had been smoking whenever we have made the notion to sit on the balcony. The room itself was dark and gloomy, very sparsely furnished and in a high need of updating. Also, it made a dirty impression and the bathroom was awful. The hotel has four lifts, but on our half only one was working during our stay. I found out that the other half of the hotel (rooms going from X14 down) was somehow better maintained - cleaner carpet, cleaner rooms with more light (the glass is coming from the bottom of the floor till the ceiling, our room lacked this) and has better and newer furnishings. Breakfast was OK. The hotel is right at the beach front, which is great, but generally, I do not recommend. For the quality of accommodation we got I think it is better to pay some extra bucks and choose a better place.

    They gave us an early check-in which is always nice. The room was fine. It had a small fridge and microwave. The AC worked really well and the breakfast was good. The front desk was super friendly and helpful. You really can't beat the location. Lots of parking too.

    « The Best! »

    My husband and I spent the most wonderful time in Virginia Beach recently. We were there August 23rd left on Sunday the 28th. We were visiting our daughter and "Chief" son (Navy) and our 3 amazing grandchildren!! We always stay at this Best Western. (6 years) Why? Because it's "The BEST! The staff super! Elisha(?), who I believe tis the manager, is courteous, soft spoken, and may I say unruffled and calm in a crisis, ahhh, meaning mine! I used the wrong card to settle my bill and was upset. I called him and he said don't worry. I needn't have because he straighten it out without a ripple! It's not the first time either. ?? Room wonderful. We watched (from our bed!!!) the fireworks display 2 nights in a row. Dazzling!????????! Joe, the general manger (whom We had the great pleasure of meeting at our last stay in December) had helped clear up some other problems I had in past. I have some health and mobility issues. Joe clearly sets the tone "of hospitality" for the hotel. All the staff reflect him no matter what their duties. Room kept neat and clean. Everybody greets you with a smile AND asks if you need anything. The hotel was super busy and I seldom walked by the front desk that they weren't busy attending to multiply guests. Yet, if they saw me the greeted me by name. Nice touch! ?? We met Elena (staff) in restaurant (for buffet, yum) everyday. No one sweeter. I know long review but I couldn't help it! Our stay there made it possible for us to have the very best time with our family. What could be better than that!!! Thank you Joe, Elisha and every single one of the staff. You are the best! Soooo my advice stay at the best when in Virginia Beach. The Best Western on 28th street! With appreciation Mr. and Mrs. Ray and Pola Godshall

    « Nice Hotel in VA Beach »

    I am used to staying at Hilton or Marriott brand hotels. This was my first time staying at a Best Western and was pleasantly surprised with the room. It was clean and roomy. It was right on the beach, where my balcony faced the water. I was on the 3rd floor, and still felt the view was just fine. The only issue is the WiFi was not consistent. I would recommend this hotel.

Debbie offered to let us stay a little longer because our flight was leaving late. Margaret and her team kept everything clean and fresh! Rita and Evone were great in the kitchen, the food was good. I will be returning next year. Thank you kind staff of Best Western Plus Oceanfront. Couldn't have had a better time. Don't want to leave out the bartenders or the housekeeping staff!

    Our room was a lovely suite overlooking a beautifully maintained pool. The front desk staff - Amanda, Debbie, Robin and Patrick - were just amazing. I had a small problem arise with my bank card, and thanks to Amanda's expert assistance, I was able to have it resolved that same afternoon. No matter how busy, they performed their duties professionally, and with a smile! All staff members of the BW Plus should be commended - housekeeping, grounds and pool, and breakfast staff.

    « Quick Getaway »

    We needed to get out of town for a day or so. VB is about 2 hours from Richmond. The weather was perfect for a day at the beach. The Best Western Plus use to be called The Colonial Inn. Staff was friendly. I am not great on heights and they gave me a 1st floor room; patio right out of the sliding doors. Restaurant at the hotel had quality food, price $$. We came on a Thursday and VB had fireworks that evening. Prior to going to see the fireworks, I walked down to where a huge bronze statue of Neptune was. I had never seen it before. Nightly music at both ends of the boardwalk. The following day we got out early on the beach before the sun got to hot. Has an indoor pool. The sea breeze was just starting to pickup, tourist boats were following the dolphins that frequent the area. My wife and I stayed in that hotel when we first came to Virginia exactly 30 years ago about a month shy of that initial introduction to Virginia Beach. VB is cleaned every night; no loud music on the streets (an ordinance passed years ago); lots to see and due in the area e.g. Virginia Aquarium.

    great location. great service. Pools were clean and not busy. ocean front is worth the extra money. Breakfast was very good for being complimentary. rooms and washroom is small but if you aren't planning n being in your room a lot they work fine. The hotel could use a bit of upgrades on the look of it. But the value is there.

    The rooms we stayed in at this hotel were very nice! They were extremely clean, especially compared to a lot of the cheaper hotels we have stayed at around this area. The weekend rate was the lowest we found for a great hotel. The view is amazing as well. We received exceptional customer service throughout our stay, especially from Elijah! He was very friendly and helped us out a lot. We will defiantly be staying here every time we come now! Highly recommended!

    First let me say that the staff from the front desk to the grounds attendants were all very helpful and very friendly, but that aside the hotel really needs a major overhaul. Rooms are old with tiny double beds, worn-out furniture, stained carpets and tiny bathrooms. Breakfast is standard complimentary fare with eggs, cereals and breads. I wouldn't rush back.....

    « Good for a weekend stay. »

    This hotel is good for a weekend stay. I gave it an average because the outdoor pool is across the street, and the parking garage is too. The indoor pool is attached to the main building. It is right on the boardwalk so you have direct access to the beach. WiFi is pretty good. Check-in and check-out was easy.

    I was surprised how much I enjoyed after looking at some of the negative comments.

    « Priceline scam »

    Don't fall into this Priceline scam. We booked in June THINKING we were booking an oceanfront hotel. Just like the Internet says. Just like the email confirmation says. Just like the picture gallery says. That is the ONLY reason we chose the 3-star deal package - to be Oceanfront. It does say online that the hotel comes with 48 non-oceanfront rooms BUT since it states clearly in the description whilst booking that it is an oceanfront reservation, we continued. Upon arrival, staff places us in Best Western PLUS's motel ACROSS the street. Not oceanfront, literally across the street right next to the hotel's parking garage. Confused, we approach the front-desk tenant and ask why we have been placed in this rinky-dink motel across the street and not in the oceanfront hotel, like we originally had paid (a decent amount of money) for. This person was extremely rude and snapped back saying that we "must have read the reservation wrong" because "Priceline CLEARLY states what you're paying for at checkout". We didn't argue and walked right out to call Priceline. Priceline argues that the pictures online are "just an example" of what you will get. They didn't know what to say to the fact that we had just paid for a 3-star HOTEL but were placed in not even a 2-star MOTEL. We were furious to the point where we just wanted our money refunded and booked another hotel since they couldn't find us a room in one of their other oceanfront hotels on the beach. Don't fall into this Priceline EXPRESS DEALS scam. You are paying for something you may not even get. This mix-up started our vacation off to a terribly rocky start, but we were glad to find a hotel that we ended up enjoying. Everything advertised on the reservation and Priceline SAY you're getting oceanfront on VA Beach but chances are - you're not. Never again.

    « Not very friendly »

    We booked 2 rooms as we have done for years. In the past all has been great, but the policy with the cars parking is terrible for families coming together from different areas. We were assured we could have 4 places to park, even if it was a parking deck. We did not mind that because we planned on using uber. After we arrived the problem started. We were told now we could only have 2 places to park, and we would have to park 8 blocks away for the other 2-even though they were full, they had places available in their parking deck area. Not to mention the clueless night clerk, and the oh-so-rude security guard that grumbled every time he was around. So we had to pay an additional $20 per night for 2 vehicles which added another $80 to our already high cost of the room! If they had just told us from the beginning it would have made it easier to make a decision. Watch for ants in the room, and tv service was non-existent with no good explanation whatsoever. We enjoy tv in the evening after we are in. Our yearly trip will be someplace else next year-others will be happy to have our business I am sure.

    « Stay at Best Western Plus Virginia Beach »

    The best part of our stay at BW Plus was the view from our room. OMG it was amazing! 24/7 we had the ocean. We loved it1 What was frustrating was when I checked in at the desk the people there were very rude and not a bit helpful until I asked to speak to a manager. This is what happened: We had two cars coming from two different states namely, Ohio and Kentucky. Yes, we had only one room because that is all we needed. My cousin coming from Ohio was handicapped. As I checked I I indicated that I needed a second parking space and the lady told me that one per room and I would have to pay $20.00 a night to park elsewhere after paying $240.00 a night for the room to begin with!!!!! So, after asking for the manager the second lady became friendlier and said come back around 5pm we will know by then if we can offer you that room sometimes people have three rooms and only need 1-2 parking spaces. So, I did come back and then the male older man (rude) at the desk gave me the same speech and threatened to have me move my second car if they needed me to move it! AND HONESTLY NO WHERE DID IT ADVISE ME AHEAD OF TIME THAT THIS WAS THEIR POLICY. They even said you booked through the Delta website and they went on and on and on....Long story short I was able to park there and so was my cousin who was handicapped. The young woman cleaning our room was the sweetest employee there . She deserves a RAISE!!!!! The breakfast crew were amazing an so was the breakfast buffet. However, those first impressions at the desk were horrible. I will not return and advise friends to choose another hotel. One last thing....I was sitting on my balcony at midnight(I am 63 years) and there was a security guard flashing a flash light on me. The next night my niece and Cousin were sitting out there and they got flashed upon. Plus the guard was counting the rooms and tried to get into the building from the outside door. The desk said they weren't sure if that was even their security guard. OMG this was scary! Definitely won't be returning......Stay in Lexginton,VA on the way to VB at a Howard Johnson and those people at the desk get a five star. They couldn't do enough for us. They were amazing. BW you let us down. So sorry!

Overall it is a wonderful place to stay. Every room has a view of the ocean. If I had to complain about 1 thing, it would be the elevators, they took a while to reach each floor, but I did not let any of that ruin my trip - it didn't bother me at all.

    « Good Location - bad hotel »

    If you care about your vehicle do not stay here. Parking is a nightmare. There were several cars that just parked on the down ramps of the garage because there were not enough spaces and we ended up with a broken windshield. There are 4 elevators two on each end of the building. The set closest to the check in desk had one of them out of order the entire time we were here. There were constant lines for the elevators. Breakfast we disappointing - luckily there are some really good restaurants in the area for breakfast! Hall way noise can be heard inside the room very clearly and vice versa.

    « Horrible at Check in »

    I always stay at best western when I visit VA Beach... this time, I tried this BW Plus to see if it was different from the BW Sandcastle. I checked in with Elijah... who had absolutely no customer service skills. Even when I asked for the manager - he told me that he was the supervisor. After he treated me poorly - I went to my room and thought about how I had been spoken to..I really wanted to leave. I called back down to the front desk a few times - there was no answer. When I got back downstairs, he was checking in another guest with so much delight and enthusiasm... I couldn't believe that he was the same person. At that point, I asked for the manager - Elijah told me that he was the supervisor (which he wasn't).... He became very upset when I asked him for the managers name and number.. I also asked for the TripAdvisor information that I saw him give to another guest. Since he hadn't given me anything other than my keys and parking pass. Other than this horrible experience, I was happy for the remainder of my stay. The rest of the staff was nice and pleasant. The room was clean. The bathroom would have been cleaner though... Room service staff were so kind. Employees like Elijah should not be at the front desk - he made my first 3 hours at this hotel very uneasy and frustrating.

    « Expected More »

    Paying over $200 a night and after reading some positive reviews, I expected more upon entering our room. It is very out of date and drab. The beds are uncomfortable and the bathroom, which has just a toilet and tub is so small you have to squeeze by to get in and shut the door. The sink area is very small with not much room to put toiletries. Desperately needs updated. Note that the pictures make it look as if it is right on the beach but there is a boardwalk to cross before the beach which has lots of traffic. You definitely can't hear the waves at night. It has breakfast though.

So we went down stairs and told the receptionist at the time, that we seen a roach. They offered an extra luggage rack!! So next day, again my son seen another big roach. This time we were angry. I went to talk the the receptionist, demanding to speak to the manager. What they did was sprayed the with bug spray. Best Western Oceanfront did not offer to compensate us at all. I will never stay there again!!!! BEWARE. The Hotel is shabby, definitely a 2 star!!!!! When I asked to be moved to another room, I was told that this was not possible; nor were the problems rectified.

    « Good, beachfront location »

    Our stay here was very pleasant. We had booked two rooms in the motel part across the road, but without even asking, the manager upgraded us to oceanfront rooms next to each other. This made our trip complete. Our group consisted of my sister and I, her two children, aged 9 and 11 and my parents. Each room had two queensize beds. There was a fridge, a coffee maker and a balcony with table and two chairs. Air conditioning worked perfectly - which was a relief - as being British, I'm not used to extreme heat and this was late June! The bathroom was fine, not massive, but big enough to have a decent bath or shower. There were complementary toiletries and the staff were extremely pleasant. I echo the comments about breakfast. It was chaos and it was actually other guests that were rude. The staff do an excellent job in a crowded situation. Across the road was a great little shop that sold everything including wine and beer. If you leave this hotel and go for a wander, I suggest you leave out the back toward the ocean and turn left. It's a little bit more upmarket than if you turn right. But that's why we all have different tastes! Have fun! We did.

    « Great location and good for families »

    The oceanview room had a great balcony with an awesome view of the beach. Check in and out was smooth. Housekeeping took care of the room each day. Access to the beach and boardwalk was just steps out the door. Dinner waitstaff was very attentive and the burgers were good. The beds were comfortable with good quality sheets and towels supplied. It's nice to have both an indoor and outdoor pool. Parking is really tight and mostly in a garage across the street. We didn't drive much thankfully because there was not enough parking for guests and people had their cars parked all over the place. The free breakfast is kind of chaos. I understand that it's free but it is a very long line with limited seating, people were rude and the staff was unable to keep it stocked with food. I'd recommend either getting up at 6am and going or paying for breakfast elsewhere to avoid the drama. Elevators were unreliable, closed often and high in demand. We took the stairs a lot which is good exercise for us but could be problematic for those who aren't able. Fyi, if you do not book an ocean front room you will be staying in a building across the street. This is an older hotel but is decently maintained. My only serious complaint was our AC only worked half the time. Maintenance came several times and would get it going but then it would stop again. I think it just needs replaced. Overall, we loved the location and couldn't have asked for a better spot for the price. We would stay again.

    « Good location but needs improvements »

    Stayed there last night. I've stayed in Best Western hotels before, but all the rooms qualifying for bonus points were already "allocated." First the positives: staff very friendly and helpful. Location is right on the boardwalk/beach. Bed was comfortable and the room clean. Had a small refrigerator. Breakfast (included in room charge) was buffet and usual fare. Now for the bad news: The rooms are very small and the bathrooms even smaller. It's a balancing act just to use the sink and the door nearly hits the toilet. No holding rails in the tub. The eggs at breakfast were inedible, possibly made from dehydrated substitute. The parking is very cramped in the lot out front and the 3 story garage across the street. Note: do not drive your Suburban or pick up truck.

    The property itself is showing its age, and the rooms, common areas, indoor pool, etc., could use a refresh and upgrade.

    « Very good for the money spent »

    I was in the suites across the street from the ocean. Check in was confusing at first because there is no signage when you are attempting to park to locate the check in. I parked in an open space in front and walked into the main entrance. The customer svc reps can be sort of snooty depending on who is at the desk at the time. They have numbers on them depending on their service. Some say 10 and others say 8. One of them hesitated to check me in when I walked up to the counter even though I stood there waiting to ask a question regarding parking. She looked at her co-workers to see if they were busy first before calling me over. After receiving a parking pass I came in at 4 to check in for the suite. I was given a room without much explanation, even though the gentleman before me was given room choices and full explanations w/ out questions from the same cust. svc rep. The room was clean and spacious. My room was near the pool and there was no chlorine smell from the pool from inside of my room or near the pool, which was cleaned and tested often. I was there over the weekend and it was not noisy at all. Even with the people outside in the pool next to me. Breakfast is meh. The servers are very friendly. Evone is very welcoming and attentive to the visitors and the food areas. The breakfast area is clean, just the options are not great. Eggs, cereal, sausage, toast. Coffee is GREAT. I have been to worse so this is not bad for the price. IMO this hotel caters more to families, kids stay free, etc.

    « Saving our family vaction! »

    The staff truly saved our family vacation from disaster! We had booked a room at another hotel which had roaches and we had to find another at 11pm. The Best Western had one room left and was totally booked for the next night. We took the open room and prayed for an opening the following day. The next morning I went to the front desk to be greeted by this wonderful warm smile. I explained our situation to Debbie and expected the worst, however she preceded to tell me about the cancellation they had just received which gave me the next night that our family needed. Thank you so much for helping us out Debbie. Debbie was amazing! She gave me info about renting items on the beach that would make our beach experience more enjoyable and even a list of prices, which was great! She also gave me some helpful hits about the area due to this being our first time at Virginia Beach. The room was great! They were very comfortable and clean. The house keepers were supper nice and helpful. It was great to be right on the beach and not over priced!! Everyone was so nice. I will always stay at this Hotel when visiting Virginia Beach. My family had a great trip even though it started a little ruff. You can't beat their service, comfort and hospitality ! We look forward to staying again!

    « Clean and Friendly Staff »

    I stayed for four nights at this hotel. Everyone was so nice and the rooms were very clean. We enjoyed the continental breakfast every morning and the staff in the breakfast room made sure it was always clean and stocked with food. There was a worker there and her name was "Evone." She was such a hard worker and every morning had a smile on her face and greeted us with "Good Morning, how are you?" The front desk was very nice as well. One in particular, "Patrick W" was another staff member with a great smile and suggestions on what to do at night. He would always smile and say, "So, what's your plan tonight?" I really enjoyed our stay and have to give kudos to the housekeeping staff as well. Our room was always very clean and always stocked with towels. If I return to Virginia Beach I will be staying here again and will recommend it to anyone I know that will be traveling there as well. I was a little skeptical staying across the street instead of the main hotel but I was pleasantly surprised how nice the rooms were even though they were not oceanfront.

    « Another great vacation in VA Beach! »

    Really like this hotel. Perfect and safe location with spacious, clean room overlooking the boardwalk and ocean. We watched the dolphins from our balcony. Beach is a few steps away which was perfect for my grandsons. They also enjoyed the 2 pools (outside and indoor). Shoreline Grille (hotel restaurant) has good food with reasonable prices. The daily breakfast included in room price is very good with many selections. Go early before the crowd rushes in around 8:00a. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Parking fills up fast, so park your car and leave it. You really don't need it during your stay because you can walk to so many places. We stayed here last year and can't wait to visit again next year!

    « Beach front hotel right on the boardwalk »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Oceanfront hotel over the 4th of July weekend. When we first got there we didn't realize that the room we booked was actually in another building across the street from the main hotel. The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly and they were able to move us to the main building for an extra fee. The room was clean and the bed comfortable however the bathroom was very small and there was paint peeling off the walls. And that's really my only complaint about this hotel - it's just not in a great shape. There is some cracking and paint peeling on the walls, it just needs to be fixed up in a few places. The free breakfast was very convenient in the morning but make sure to get there early as the food tends to run out by 9:30am. Overall we had a great time. You really can't beat the location. We could walk from our room and be right on the beach and the boardwalk. If you want chairs and umbrellas for the beach you can rent them for about $40 per day at one of many locations along the beach. There are many places to go out to eat along the boardwalk, anything from sushi to pizza to seafood buffet. The restaurant in the hotel was decent and offered a good quick bite for a lunch right on the beach.

    The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, however, the door leading to the balcony needs to be replaced, during a rain storm, the carpet became soaked. The breakfast buffet was very good, with a wide variety to choose from. My family enjoyed the food at the restaurant, it was prepared well and I found it better than the Neptune's Restaurant a block away. KUDOS to the restaurant staff. Well done!

    Since 2009 I go to Best western ocean front hotels in Virginia Beach. In 2016 visit, the beads were a bit smaller; there were v load noises once anybody opens the balcony sliding doors. Once I booked myself two rooms, the recipients told me I'm eligible for one free night by redeeming my points but I have a surprise that I could not redeem it this visit!!!. I guess overall I did not have fun as it used to be last years!!! Thanks

    The view was amazing! The front desk staff was awesome and very helpful BUT all the vending machines on every floor were empty of all liquids and it was 100 degrees out. Even asking to have them filled they never were. I asked the maid to clean the room and she never vacuumed or wiped the surfaces off. She gave us fresh towels and made the bed that was it.

    I was delighted with the friendliness and helpful personnel -- Jo (housekeeping), and front desk folks Patrick, Jon and Eli! I had mixed feelings about the facility. The oceanfront rooms were small, and the beds really small for sharing. At times the common areas were not pristine, and the breakfast staff seemed stressed out (as I would be under the circumstances!) But the location was great and breakfast was free.

    « "An awesome 4th" »

    I spent 3 nights at the hotel. The location was perfect with a beautiful view of the ocean. We could see the dolphins from our balcony. We also enjoyed the fireworks from the balcony. The free breakfast was very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly,especially Matilda (I think that's her name). She's the parking lot attendant. We went out on July 4th for a boat tour and not thinking that it was the 4th and not thinking about our parking spot, when we got back there were no spots anywhere. We stopped and told matilda, she first said we'd have to park in the ally. She knew by looking at my face that I wasn't going to park my new car in an alley. She said wait a minute, she went inside and then came back out and said follow me. She directed us to the front of the hotel and my new car was parked there all night. Thank you so much Matilda. You're the greatest. The room was clean,but small. The bathroom was very small and the shower curtain rod needed to be replaced. The fan in the bathroom was making a terrible noise, but other than that I have no complaints. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. I will be staying at the Best Western Oceanfront hotel my next visit to va beach.

My sister is dying of stage 4 colon cancer and she is making memories so she booked this place again. She had planned for us to go too a concert there in VA Beach. Concert was AWESOME! Back to the Best Western, we stayed in room 518! Nice room, mini refrigerator, coffee pot & coffee, hair dryer, ironing board & iron - - - who uses these anymore?, and oceanfront. Our room was clean and all staff were very attentive to any needs we may have had. Outdoor pool was nice and located across the street. We ate in the Restaurant in the hotel for breakfast and had dinner there twice. Breakfast was okay! Dinner both evenings was spot on! Indoor pool still looks cloudy!

    We stayed at BW oceanfront for 3 Nights end of June 2016. Our room was clean, well appointed, fridge safe, had a great ocean view. Hotel was centrally located on Boardwalk. Free breakfast was average hotel food. Debbie at the front desk was very accommodating, got us in our room early because a thunderstorm was coming. Felicia at the concierge desk recommended some really good restaurants. Price for paid for This hotel was a real value compared to other properties. Only drawback was our room was on the small side. We had a king room on the 6th floor. But the view was great.

    « Couldn't Ask More out of an oceanfront hotel when on a budget. »

    I spent 5 nights in the Best Western Plus Oceanfront Virginia Beach, and I couldn't be happier to have chosen the hotel. First off, compared to other hotels with an oceanfront view the hotel was right in my wheelhouse for price range. The staff was extremely pleasant upon check in, and the concierge was helpful finding deals for dining around, (although most coupons were already in the Monster Coupon Book). They allowed us to choose which room we preferred based on available options. The room was clean, and had the basic needs met. If you are looking for a 5 star bathroom with a Jacuzzi, sorry this isn't your hotel. -The bathroom was small, but had enough room to do your business and shower. I wasn't there for the bathroom anyway. -The king size bed was comfortable, although all of the pillows weren't necessary. -The balcony was what you'd expect. A great view of the ocean, and a PERFECT view for 4th of July fireworks. The chairs are cheapish plastic and metal, but again, I wasn't expecting high quality chairs. -The mini-fridge can be manipulated to fit pizza boxes, soda cans, wins bottles, and had a freezer for ice cream. -HD tv (even though I wasn't there for the TV) The cleaning staff was very nice, and cleaned thoroughly. The maintenance staff was helpful as well, as my girlfriend accidentally jammed the lock on the door to the balcony, so it would not open. They fixed the door promptly, and were kind about it. Lastly, the breakfast was more than just cereal and milk. Every day they had a hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, and an option of French toast or waffles, and separate areas with lots of food. For what I expected with the price, the hotel was fantastic. I will definitely stay here again. If you are concerned with your budget and just having a comfortable place to stay rather than 5 star everything, I highly recommend. Based on what I expected, and what I got, I give them 5 stars.

    This hotel was very affordable. Great spot on the beach and had excellent views of the brilliant fireworks. Incredible. Great breakfast. Two pools. Right in the middle of all the action. Loved it. We would stay there anytime. Just a nice family friendly place to be. There are events on Atlantic Ave every evening, musicians playing all over the place and tons of stuff to do. Just nice to listen to the ocean from your balcony while some street musician serenades the boardwalk with his trombone, saxaphone or guitar. Great place to be. Wish I lived there.

I can not think of anything to complain about in our 6 night stay. Very nice place and right on the beach.

    « Just what what we needed »

    All staff extremely friendly and helpful. I booked through Priceline and although I thought a beach front room was reserved, it was not. Front desk gave me a free upgrade. This hotel is approximately in the middle of the beach front, making all activities within walking distance. Not in the hub of tourist activities, but that is what we wanted. Just needed quiet time on the beach with my family. Room was clean. Softest towels I have ever used in a hotel. They have an indoor pool and an outside pool.across the street. We have no complaints about the parking. We would book at this hotel again if we return to Virginia Beach. It has available laundry room on second floor. Only complaint is that ice machines are not on every floor, but has elevators so this only a very minor inconvenience.

    « Helpful staff, great breakfast, great location »

    This hotel is an older building, and could use some updates, but we really enjoyed our stay. Front desk was very accommodating after some confusion with Priceline. There's definitely some confusion considering the area is called "Virginia Beach Oceanfront" when booking with a third party like Priceline. This hotel has a non-oceanfront building across the street, which Priceline still considers "oceanfront" which it clearly is not. Elijah was very helpful and allowed us to change our reservation (with a nightly upcharge) to an oceanfront room on the 8th floor. View was wonderful...sat on the balcony drinking coffee and watching dozens of dolphins swim along the coast. Location of the hotel is perfect. Just a short walk to restaurants, gift shops (kids loved that Forbes candy store was right across the street) and to Neptune's Park. One of the best complimentary continental breakfasts we've had. Room was clean. Indoor pool was nice for the kids when it rained. Sidenote: stumbled across Farm Fresh Market just up the road. They steamed some shrimp and crab legs for us while we shopped, and we took them back to our room for dinner one night. Wish we'd done it more than once...best crab legs I've had! So good!!!

    The parking lot in front of hotel is limited, had to park across the street. The hotel staff greeted us and got us checked in quickly. The rooms are just okay. View from balcony is nice. However, the hotel restaurant is not recommended. The service was horrible. It was dirty and no one would wait on us--several people walked by us, but not one even acknowledged us. We finally had to leave and take our business down the street. We were told by a near by customer that we were not the first ones to get up and leave.

    « Dad's Funeral »

    We stayed at this location because we got a great rate. The room was huge, but the space between the beds and walls was very limited and it would have been better to just have a king size bed and a sofa. The tv was a 27" and was at least 25' from the beds making it difficult to see. The bathtub needs upgrading especially the shower. There was a great whirlpool tub in the room which overlooked the beach and there was a balcony as well. A free breakfast came with the room and it was not bad. Parking was scarce with a parking garage across the street with minimal lighting at night. The staff was nice, but in some cases did not know how the hotel ran especially when it came to laundry. Overall it was a good stay.

There is parking available which is fantastic since parking is scarce in that area in the summer. I would definitely stay here again

    « Perfect for families »

    This hotel is great for families! The rooms are small but who goes to the beach for a big hotel room?! The room was clean, the beds were comfy, the shower had great water pressure, it was everything we needed in a hotel room. It was perfect for my family of 4. We stayed on the 7th floor which had awesome views! The breakfast offered a lot of variety which is good for picky breakfast eaters. The hotel is close to some of the nicer shops and restaurants and Neptune park. We did not use the outdoor pool (across the road) but it looked nice. The indoor pool appeared clean and was a great alternative for my toddler who needed a break from the sun. The only annoyance was the concierge staff who tried selling us some vacation package when we stopped to ask for directions to a restaurant. Otherwise, friendly and accommodating staff (front desk, breakfast & housekeeping). We will definitely be returning to this hotel for future vacations.

    We totally enjoyed our stay. We left saying what a great hotel that was. We looked at other hotels in the area but for the price- we got the most amenities. It was nice to be right on the boardwalk but you didnt feel bothered by the noise of people walking by. We will stay there again

    « Best vacation ever »

    We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend 2016. Staff was friendly and efficient. Check-In and Check-out were hassle free! Rooms were clean with a beautiful view of the ocean. You never have to move your car because they have an excellent restaurant right in the hotel and a souvenir shop accross the street. Literally steps from the sand! LOVE this place. Hope to be back soon!!!

    « Another pleasurable stay for the Andersons »

    This was our second time staying here. The lodging & services are great. Would have given this the highest rating if the hotel had a pool and hot tub. We enjoy the ocean, walking the board walk & the very friendly staff. Especially Evone (Bebon). She is very friendly & helpful to everyone having breakfast. She is a delight to be around. Looking forward to seeing her next year when we visit.

    We always stay at the Best Western 2809 Atlantic. One evening we decided to eat at the outside restaurant! What a great surprise. We had a few cold drinks and appetizers. The portions were HUGE. The only problem is we had to leave the next day and will have to wait until our next vacation to eat there again!

    I want to give a biggg shout out to Patrick and Maura. We originally planned to stay at another hotel but when we got to our paid room...everything that we requested was not in place not even the pool to include AAA discounts. I'm livid because I drove 5 hours and it is memorial day weekend..everything was booked...so best western plus had everything we needed for the weekend and more and also at a better price...Patrick and Maura at the front desk were so very nice and really showed us great hospitality..we will be staying again.

    « Amazing views with awesome rate! »

    I did a lot of research before staying here. The reviews left by others were spot on. This is a very nice place! I didn't want to sink a bunch of money into a hotel, I would rather spend my money on activities and other things. This hotel may not be the most high end of motels but it is very clean and right on the beach with breath taking views. I can't say enough about how we were treated here. Everyone has been so nice and helpful especially Patrick at the front desk. He is the most down to earth most informative person that has helped us and laughed with us every evening. This place and people are an absolute 10+. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

    « What a great Experience »

    I booked this hotel through expedia because I had a bad experience at another hotel and had to leave it was the worse. When I arrived at the bestwestern I walked in to a fight about who was going to wait on me fst ( Ithought That was so amazing) Patrick at the front desk asked why we were here and when I said it was my Birthday he imediately asked his supervisor Dawn if he could upgrade me to oceanfront because I was across the street( luckily they had openings ) They made me feel so special on my day and everytime I saw Patrick or Dawn they spoke and asked how I was doing and if I was enjoying myself . They were very proffeassional and I cant wait to return to my new family at bestwestern

    I've stayed at this hotel twice. This is a great oceanfront location for a great price. We stayed on the top floor (8) and had a great view this time. The breakfast was good and the dining area faces the ocean. Patrick checked us in at the front desk and was extremely nice throughout our stay. If we passed the desk, he always asked if everything was going well during our stay. Nice and clean! I definitely recommend this hotel and will be a return customer again and again.

    « Crappy hotel in a great location »

    I was disappointed the second I walked into the lobby. The front desk agents were not welcoming, especially the one who checked me in. The lobby looked old and not well maintained, the room is worn-out and had a very bad smell coming all the way from the hallway. If they don't have the money for a renovation, they should at least change the carpets. Breakfast was disgusting. We only ate there once and the next morning we decided to go out to eat. Breakfast attendants did not look happy to be there! In general, I think the entire hotel staff is unhappy and it reflects in the way they treat their guests. The only good thing about this hotel is the location and the view. It is not worth the price I paid!!!!

    « Great price for ocean front! »

    With most ocean front hotels charging double of BW, we thought we'd give this hotel a try based on the reviews. We stayed in room 518 and had a great view of the ocean. The rooms were basic but comfortable. No hair dryer and super cheap toiletries for those of you considering using what the hotel offers. Beds were comfortable, lots of pillows, temp control was fine. We did not use the indoor pool but families should note that the outdoor pool is across the street. Breakfast was disappointing but no one should expect gourmet meals from a budget hotel. Parking is sparse but there is free garage parking across the street that takes 2 minutes. Great customer service and friendly employees. Location is worth 4 stars alone-convenient to Neptune park and great shops & restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Not a great stay »

    This hotel was no up to Best Western standards in our opinion.. The rooms are very small, water pressure wasn't great. No Cable service 2 out of the three nights. Staff didn't seem to care. We only stayed there because we stayed there when our daughter graduated HS so took her back when she graduated with her masters. We were not very happy and will not be going back to this Best Western

    Have enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus twice now. Very friendly staff. So kind and helpful. Always speak to you in the hallways and around the hotel. Rates were great! Loved the ocean front room and the private balcony. Woke up to a brign and beautiful sun each morning! Didn't seem to have a working fan in our bathroom or the bathroom for our other room. Have suggested the hotel look into it.

    Disappointed in the lack of cleanliness of the room! Night stand had visible sticky substances on it. Dust balls accumulated around vent in bathroom. At a glance, the room looked clean, but up close, it was obvious that housekeeping does a very quick vacuum and changing of sheets. Breakfast was inedible, worst of all the hotels I have ever visited! I know they say it's a "free" breakfast, but let's be honest, it is included in the price! Beautiful balcony view, but all oceanfront hotels have that view, so do yourself a solid and stay somewhere else!

    Stayed during the Beach Music Weekend; the hotel was fully booked; however, everything was very clean and staff was extremely pleasant.

All of the rooms were oceanfront (NOTE: they have another building across the street that isn't).

    I first got to the Best Western plus and I was directed across the street which wasn't comfortable to me. I was instantly greater by Dawn took my concern seriously. She offered me a room on the first floor for only $11 extra. Because I paid on hotels.com she wasn't able to charge my card but she did allow me and my friend to stay on the ocean front side. Thanks to her she had an amazing trip and I'll never forget how she took care of us. Thanks so much Dawn!!

    « Great Location for Shamrock Race Weekend »

    Location: - 28th Street & Atlantic. - This hotel is right by the finish line of the Shamrock Marathon (and Half and 8K). Our balcony overlooked the finish line and beer tent. - Note: For non-racers, loud music can be heard as early as 6:30 AM. Also, some roads are closed at certain times during the race weekend so please check into this. - Can hear ocean waves when it's quiet at night, even with the doors closed---lulling & peaceful. - Extra parking lot across the street, small parking lot on site. Room: - As far as I could tell, all rooms have an ocean view. - Small firm beds (full? queen? --- hard to tell, felt small for 2 people). Really soft pillows. - TINY bathroom. Misc: - Indoor heated pool, attached Jacuzzi. - Basic workout room. - Restaurant in hotel. Complimentary breakfast very good, with eggs, sausage, bread items, cereal. - Waitress Evone was a delight to talk to. She gave us and other racers words of encouragement. She was very engaging even to our kids. She represents the hotel very positively. Will stay again for the location & Evone!

    « Perfect Location »

    This is an older Hotel with some minor flaws that can really be over looked. Our room was VERY clean including the bathroom. We had a 7th floor ocean front room with a very nice balcony. The location is perfect and the staff is the BEST by far. After we made our way up to our room we noticed there was no remote for the tv. After a quick call to the desk and a wait of only about 2 minutes we had a remote. The service man that brought it up was very friendly and announced himself after knocking. That is a plus! The staff at the front desk, Patrick & Robin they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was just as we expected. To be greeted every time we entered and exited the hotel let me know that they are very aware of every one and everything going on in and around the hotel. I can not forget Carol in the dining area for breakfast. She was just so very friendly and on top of her job. She too did everything possible to ensure the breakfast area was clean, full and fresh for every guest. Conversation with her was just so refreshing for my daughter and I. It is not often that hotel workers have the time to chat with guests but she made time. I will be booking this hotel again next year for mine and my daughter's yearly trip.

    This is an older property that is well maintained pretty much what you expect from a Best Western Plus, hot breakfast is in the hotel restaurant during our stay hot items were eggs, sausage and potatoes along with the usual cereal and pastries, unfortunately the weather was very stormy and we wanted to check out a day early, this was not a problem as Debbie and Lisa assured me there would not be a cancellation fee, this is what I consider treating the customer right, this is a great choice in Virginia Beach for a mid price hotel that gives you value!

    « Go place to stay in VA Beach VA but watch your dates »

    I enjoyed this hotel. Limited parking in front of hotel and buses also park there. Parking garage for hotel only across the street and that worked ok for me. Check in was a pleasure with Cheryl. Smiling and happy and she found a cart for me. Every time I went through lobby and she was there, I got a warm smile as asked if all was ok. My room was on the 8th floor with 2 double beds and oceanfront. Had a nice balcony with 2 chairs and small table. Room and bathroom were very clean and had a small refrigerator and microwave. Room also had a chair and footrest to relax inside or watch tv. Room was very quiet with door closed. Weather was nice and I left it open to enjoy the sound of the waves. A common problem at most hotels is lack of luggage carts in the morning. I did have to carry my luggage down but was allowed to park my car out front. Debi worked the desk and I mentioned the breakfast room was crowded and I only got hot water for tea. She handed me a Grag n Go sack with a snack bar, piece of fruit, and water. I am not a big breakfast person and this worked great. I was on a schedule that morning. Breakfast was good on other mornings and less crowded. There were several travel buses out front on Friday morning I had dinner one night at bar at hotel and food was very good. Bartender was a lot of fun. I used the exercise room and it was clean and well equipped. Had a tv. Indoor pool but did not use it. Large beach at hotel that was groomed. There was a boardwalk along the beach and also a bicycle path. Not sure about beach chairs or rentals. Good internet service in my room. I would caution you to watch dates of activities in that area of Virginia Beach. I left on Friday morning and it was an annual college weekend with thousands of students coming in. I would assume the hotel and area are very busy in the summer. For my April weekday stay, I was very pleased. Will stay here again.

Tamesha, Dasha and Katrina at the front desk, Trixie who was in charge of the complimentary breakfast,and Joe, the gen'l manager, all helped us to have a wonderful stay, by recommending restaurants (CaptainRazzy's) and helping with travel directions.

    We stayed here in May of 2015. The rooms were adequate although the bathrooms were quite small and outdated. But who spends that much time in there anyway? The balcony was fantastic - we had our own private "bird ballet" everyday - watching the gulls play on the wind currents just beyond our reach. We were able to sit on the balcony and watch the ships come and go - it was lovely. The room was not overly large, but it was comfortable and clean. The restaurant downstairs was average - that's where the complimentary breakfast was served and it was good. They didn't have cranberry juice, but when asked one of the staff went and found me some. The location was great as there was so much within walking distance - including Tautogs which is our favorite place to eat dinner while in Virginia Beach. The staff was courteous, efficient and friendly.

    « Clean but needs a little more TLC. »

    The sheets are clean. That's a big deal. The rooms are a little on the small side and only double beds available for families to consider. The room gets tight quick. The bathroom is also very small. They have updated many things but have a little ways to go. The breakfast area is dated and the cooked food was mostly instant products. Overall for a clean place and a little cheaper than the other hotels it worked for a couple of nights.

    staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The room was kind of small but super clean. Our trip there was a lot of noise at night and construction going on during the day. We had to change rooms due to the noise at nigh, my husband could not sleep. The daily breakfast is boring, no variety. Bland scrambled eggs and greasy sausage and dried up french toast sticks. Would have been better if they offered more since we stayed a whole week. We also had to evacuate twice in the same night because the fire alarms kept going off for no reason. That was really annoying and the hotel would not give us any discount on our room for the inconvenience. Overall though it is a pretty nice place even though the rooms are really small, no room to move around in the bathrooms. The ocean view is great and the location is good too, walking distance to many places.

    « Great Staff that puts up with so much! »

    We stayed at the Best Western, Virginia Beach from Friday March 25th and checked out this morning. The housekeeper we had whose name was Danielle was super. She really made our stay. The room was nice and clean and was perfect for our family of three. The free breakfast was an added bonus and Evone in the breakfast room was a hoot. However, on Sunday night the fire alarm went off at 3:30am and we had to exit the building and about 25 min later when we were just getting ready to come back in the alarm went off again. Was it an inconvenience yes but did it ruin everything about our trip no. The next day around 1:00 the alarm went off again because a child pulled the fire alarm, which I have to say the hotel has no control over. But the point I want to make is that the abuse the staff took after the child pulled the alarm was unbelievable. As I made my way through the lobby I could not believe the comments some guests were making to the staff. It seemed some guests wanted to take advantage of the situation and demand discounts and free nights. I witnessed the girl who had checked us in named Lisa handle the situation so much better than I would have. The Fire Department finally came through the lobby with the little boy who had pulled the alarm and things seemed to settle after that. I have a greater respect for people who work in hotels now and especially this staff who I think handled themselves very professional

    « Best location for Shamrock race weekend (right at the finish line), but otherwise I wouldn't stay there »

    If you're coming to Virginia Beach for Shamrock, this is the most convenient hotel to the finish line and post-race party. This is particularly important if you're cold and wet after the race, which is always a possibility in March, or if you like to avoid portipottis. It's about a mile from the starting line so easily walkable. My room was fine - small but with a wonderful view and a small balcony overlooking the beach and boardwalk (and the finish line and party tent). The door to the balcony did not close tightly and periodically rattled in the wind, there was peeling paint in the very small bathroom, and the water pressure was very poor. The beds were okay - nothing special but I didn't have any problem sleeping. It was nice to have a frig in the room. The toilet became stopped up during my stay, which was a bit of a hassle, but they fixed it promptly once I called. Twice my key card stopped working and I had to go to the front desk to have them re-program it, which was a hassle since I was on the 8th floor and the elevators were slow. Had this happened at the wrong time (like right before the race), it would have been devastating. The staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. The parking lot next to the main building is pretty small, but there's a parking deck across the street, although I wouldn't want to try to park a large car in it because the spaces are small and there are very tight turns leading to the upper floors. I didn't use the pool or workout room, but they both looked nice. The workout room was large and appeared to be well-equipped. The restaurant food was mediocre.

    « Always a pleasant stay »

    We always stay at this hotel for the Shamrock Marathon/Half/8K weekend in March. It is located at the finish line and party tent. The breakfast buffet has a great selection and they never run out of food or let it get cold. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, with a menu that has something for everybody. The staff is friendly and always says hello. We also like the fact that many restaurants and shops are within walking distance, so you don't have to move your car once you check in - unless you want to!

    « Great choice for Yuengling Shamrock weekend »

    The best location with excellent amenities. Easy parking, check-in and out - breakfast buffet and oceanfront view. Staff is professional and friendly. Rooms are a little on the small side, but pool, refrigerator and microwave give you all you need. Wouldn't consider anywhere else.

    « Good for what we needed »

    My husband, best friend, and I stayed in one of these rooms for one night before running the Shamrock half marathon. It was excellent because it was basically at the finish line. The rate was very low and it came with continental breakfast. Everything seemed clean which we appreciated. We stayed in a "Queen suite" which supposedly had a queen bed and a sitting area. This suite was not in the main building. We were in a separate building by the pool and parking deck. This didn't really bother us though. The suite was actually fairly spacious and my friend used the love seat as a play to lay his head for the night. The bathroom was clean and there was a little kitchenette. However, the bed was definitely not queen sized. It was absolutely a full sized bed and although we had our thermostat set to 72, the temperature never got above 66 and the radiator made terrible noises all night. Even though there were black out curtains there was a bright light right next to the window next to the bed which was distracting throughout the night. Also, we visited the hotel bar the day before and were severely put off by the bartender Kiwi Ben. He wouldn't stop talking, interrupting our conversation. And he was usually interrupting with an offensive joke. At one point he asked if we were professional nurses the way we have been nursing our drinks (we really weren't nursing them, but if we were then that's our business) and as a matter of fact, we are nurses so we told him so. He also made jokes against women (I'm a woman) and people who come into the bar with different accents and how it makes his ears bleed. It felt like he was constantly asking us to spend more money in the bar when we just wanted one drink and an appetizer. He overheard us talking about where an Italian restaurant is so we could carb load and he tried to sell us their restaurant's pasta. When we declined and asked him if he knew any Italian places nearby, he did not volunteer any info and continued to try to sell us their pasta. All in all, our trip was fine. The suite was big enough for the three of us and it was all clean. We did have to pay half a day for late check out which was annoying since I'm very certain this time of year there aren't many people checking in on a Sunday. But that's how it goes sometimes. Ok budget hotel for our needs.

    « Great location and price! »

    I stay at the oceanfront every year for the Shamrock sportsfest. Unfortunately my usual hotel was too expensive and they increased the minimum night stay. I looked around at several hotels and this hotel came up and the price was perfect. The kids loved the indoor pool (heated), breakfast and wifi (all included). Check in was easy and the location was PERFECT for the weekend. The hotel was full that weekend we stayed, but honestly didn't feel full at all. The folks who worked the breakfast were fantastic and very accommodating to us runners (in need of peanut butter). The hotel staff even gave us trash bags for Sunday's race. Parking is tight, but comes with the location. The bathroom seemed small, but we made do. The toilet and shower were in one room and the sink was separate to the bathroom. Room came with a microwave and nice size mini fridge. Our stay was well worth if not more what we paid for. Plus...we could bribe our kids with Sweet Frog at the end of the weekend. We hope to stay at this hotel again next year-and bring several other friends with us! Thank you to the breakfast staff and the front desk!!

    « All about location »

    The staff is very helpful, friendly, and attentive. The location is absolutely perfect (especially those running the Shamrock races in March). For those two reasons alone I would stay here again when we run next year's race. However, the quality of the actual room and hotel was not good. Our sink was clogged, the appliances, furniture and fixtures are very old, hairs (not our own) on the counter and carpet, general dinge, dirt & dust everywhere.... The bed was very comfortable, but I'm thinking that may have more to do with exhaustion after the races than comfort.

    Hotel is right on the ocean so it's view is lovely. Price is ok too. Breakfast area is a bit dirty looking, but room itself ok for a couple of nights stay. Just a basic hotel, no frills, but ok value. It's a shame there isn't any seating outside the breakfast area for nice mornings.

    « Cheap and Clean »

    If you want a spotless ocean front cheap hotel, this is it. I stay in hotels--generally expensive ones when my company foots the bill--but when my husband and I heard the weather at the beach was going to be in the mid-80's and we hadn't budgeted for a night away, we took up this groupon deal for one night at $80. Perfect. This hotel doesn't pretend to be anything other than cheap and clean, and truly sitting on the 8th floor balcony overlooking the ocean, nothing else mattered. We could walk to great restaurants, get cheap appetizers and honestly, the whole weekend was hotel and food was less than $110 split between the two of us. GREAT. The breakfast was horrible, but really, so what. There was the ocean, coffee, and a pastry. We asked for a room as high as we could get and they first gave us a 2nd floor room and when they moved us up they put us right next to the elevator (uhhh, really???), but still, the ocean...the balcony, the boardwalk. So what to anything else.

    « Okay »

    Both Front desk agents were watching a video on a cell phone. When exiting the elevator there was a chemical spray bottle laying in the middle of the hallway. Shower rod was loose on wall. No ashtray on balcony for smokers to place their cigarette butts in. Room was cleaned but lacking in some areas.

    « Average hotel »

    Rooms are average. Location is great because it is overlooking the beach. But if you're unfortunate, sometimes you will be checked-in on the extended part of the hotel which is across the street. There are two swimming pools, one is indoor and the other one is outdoor and is across the street. Both are quite small. Elevators also don't work properly sometimes.

    « Not too bad »

    The hotel staff was outstanding and very helpful whenever a problem arose. The view was breathtaking and we slept with the balcony door opened all night. The sound of the ocean helped to put us to sleep, it was wonderful. The room was very small and were just O.K. They were clean and since it was just myself and my husband it was doable. Overall it would have been an wonderful time had the "free breakfast:" not had been so awful.. The eggs were very cold and rubbery, not many choices and the staff was the worst. One attendant was sweeping a rug with a broom around all the food kicking up dust and dirt.......disgusting. I also picked up two disposable cups by accident and the attendant grabbed my cups to pull them apart right out of my hands.....big no no. my children don't even grab anything that I am going to put in my mouth. When I made a comment about how rude it was to touch peoples food or anything they were going to put in their mouth the attendant made a rude remark. That is not done where I come from. Although most of the stay was not too bad the rude attendants in the '"free" breakfast dining room will be my last memory which is too bad.

    Everything was top notch. Great place to stay on 28th St with easy access to the beach, boardwalk and local restaurants. We saw dolphins and a spectacular sunrise right from our balcony.

    « Best value on the beach »

    This review is for the oceanfront part of the hotel. I was very impressed by this hotel. The price which included breakfast was a great value and so much less expensive than other comparable beachfront hotels in the area. The room was nice and clean, the location was a perfect spot on the beach, and the hot breakfast was a big plus? Now it isn't a top of the line hotel so yes you may notice some imperfections in design and carpentry, but if little cracks or fading paint on the walls doesn't bother you then I highly recommend this place. The comfort , quality, and cleanliness were all great. Again this only pertains to the oceanfront rooms, the rooms across the street may be a different experience.

    We went here for Valentine's weekend. The oceanfront view was awesome and the room was clean, equines with microwave & fridge. Only drawback is that they only have 2 double beds instead of queen beds. We paid $100 from Priceline during winter so I guessed a good deal considering iris oceanview. What I really is that they served great hot continental breakfast w/ sausage & scrambled eggs, toast, pancake, yogurt, cereal & fruits. We'd definitely come back again if we get good deal. The location is awesome as it is target center or VA Beach & at the water.

    The hotel is nicely located right on the beach and the board walk. The room has a mini fridge and coffee maker which is convenient. I stayed two nights. The first morning there was NO hot water which made for a very annoying start to the day. There were several family members of mine who were also staying at this hotel who experienced the same issue. The second morning the issue was fixed and we did have hot water, thank goodness. The breakfast buffet was just ok. Nothing fancy but you could get coffee, eggs, sausage, cereal etc.

We like to eat from local establishments when we travel, and were having difficulty finding a local pizza place that would deliver during the off season.

    No need to write a 4 page letter here. This hotel is in a great location in proximity to many businesses, shops, and of course the ocean. It's pretty obvious that it has some age on it but still a great value especially for an oceanfront hotel. Nothing fancy but not ragged out like some other hotels around the same age. My only complaint for the most part is the walls and ceilings are pretty thin so I heard quite a few showers running, doors being slammed, and a few yells down the hall but nothing to keep me from resting. Don't expect a red carpet or curbside bellhops with bowties and top hats. It's a Best Western Plus! Lol. Highly recommended for the budget shopper looking for an oceanfront room at a decent price with no frills required.

It was directly in front of the ocean, with spectacular views. Unlike some hotels that say "oceanfront" but you only get to see a narrow view of the ocean, we had a private balcony and you could see the entire ocean for miles. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean, but the best part was the staff. EVERYONE was friendly, accommodating and eager to help. Smiles everywhere. One of the friendliest, most upbeat people we met was Jo, the person who took care of our room. She really brightened our day. She was never grumpy, never complaining, always smiling and cheerful.

    We have stayed at many Best Western Plus and have usually been very satisfied. But this one should never have been graded a Plus! We were very disappointed to find our room was dingy and shabby, and smelt damp. but I put this down to being so near the sea, I would usually have complained about the condition of the room, but having just completed a very long and tireing journey and needing sleep. I just sprayed perfume everywhere and hoped for the best. But on going to bed found they were damp and smelt worse than the room, I slept in a chair and booked out first thing in the morning. We then booked into the really lovely Marriott Courtyard hotel just a few yards further down the beech, where the staff were wonderful and we had a VERY clean well appointed room, and actually stayed there a couple of extra days due to the comfort this hotel offered. If you need/want to be in this area, do yourself a favour and stay at the Marriott Courtyard, we would go back there anytime !

We had quiet location per our request at check-in without neighbors on 8th (top) floor during low season weekday and good views onto beach/ocean. Good breakfast but would have enjoyed yogurt. Would be nice if double beds were queen beds instead. Parking was easy. We would stay again.

    « What a great stay. »

    Everything was great but the Breakfast. I enjoyed everything but that terrible food. Fire the chef if that is what he thinks is good food. What a great view of the beach. I will return and tell friends about the place. Just not the food.

    « Beautiful view to wake up to. »

    Hotel is very clean. Room was very clean and good sized. I loved being able to step out onto the balcony for a view you can't beat. Beds are comfortable, pillows odd but ok. The indoor swimming pool that is supposed to be heated was cold. Over all very pleased with my stay and will definitely come back.

    « BAD EXPERIENCE »

    Ripped off. It was a bad experience because the charges incurred were not adjusted despite the rooms were changed. One room cost at $79 per night and one cost $99 per night with Jacuzzi. Both rooms occupied were similar at $79 per night. No Jacuzzi. No cost adjustment. Either receptionist or staff at the front desk were incompetent or typical personnel who doesn't care.

    « Great location »

    One extra star for location and staff. Please note this is an old style motel with outside corridors (now glassed in). Also size and layout of rooms meant to maximize the number of rooms in the available footprint. From the room balcony a million dollar view. Staff very friendly and helpful. As to the breakfast our normal breakfast is OJ toast and coffee so we were very satisfied with what they offered. Also had dinner in hotel restaurant. Very good food and service.

    « Great price and Beautiful location »

    I have stayed at the Best Western here in Va Bch before, so I pretty much knew what to expect. Front desk is courteous and efficient. (I did ask about bike rentals in the area and they werent sure. (FYI-Cherie's bike rentals at 13th st on the boardwalk was still open and apparently they have 4 rental places along the boardwalk). The hotel is clean and the elevators run pretty quick. The room has a beautiful view of the beach. There is a new hotel going up next door, so heard a bit of contruction noise in the morning. The beds were comfy, but I'm not so sure about the 4 square pillows, there were a bit hard for us, but we might be picky since we're used to soft pillows. Bathroom was spotless. Only real concern we had was the door to the balcony. I think it's time to replace it. We could literally see a gap in between the door and the outside, plus we had a hard time opening the lock . The FREE breakfast buffet had nice choices, was plentiful and hot. Overall this hotel met our standards. You can't beat the price this time of year and we would come back.

    « An Excellent Hotel at Virginia Beach »

    This was a hotel with quiet rooms and excellent breakfast. It was nice to be able to open the sliding glass door to step outside and look at the ocean and watch people on the boardwalk. I would stay here again (and I have already made my reservation).

    « Not as good as past trips »

    We've always stayed at this property and always use Best Western properties when available. This time I was disappointed. Lounge totally blew it. Asked for gin and tonic and was given a gin and soda with a splash of something since we're out of tonic, never asked if that was okay. No one to seat us. In the lobby someone who appeared to be a hotel employee grabs us and starts to talk about local attractions only to find out she is selling time shares. Over an hour of my time wasted. A/C in room sounded like a large air compressor when it came on. Very noisy

    « Decent Hotel Right On the Beach »

    This hotel is situated right on the beach so you can hear the water lapping onto the shore from your balcony. Most rooms have a balcony. The beds are satisfactory for your back. The bathroom was clean. Vacuuming could have been more thorough and dusting of the ice bucket was needed. Overall, a pleasant stay. Ate at restaurant downstairs and food was good. Breakfasts which were included were adequate and good.

    Excellent view from the room. Stayed on the third floor. Stayed off season which nice not to have the crowds but many resturants and shops were closed. Time of the year was perfect and the water temp nice.

    « Just Ok »

    Hotel is located oceanfront,perfect for sunrise/sunset view. But hotel is quite showing it's age, could benefit from remodeling or updating. Very convenient going to the beach and across the shops. Also, AC is not working well, have to bear the sound and the humidity inside the room due to AC that is almost non functioning and too loud. If remodeled, this hotel has a potential.

    « Horrible »

    Outdated. Not very clean. Room had bed bugs but staff denied. I'd stay far away from this place. Cannot understand the good reviews. The free breakfast was poor in quality.The hotel room view was very nice.

    This hotel is not fancy, the bathrooms could use an overhaul, but are very functional. Great view of the beach and ocean from all rooms, nice balcony set up to sit out on. Short walk to many restaurants and beach shopping. This is the second year we have gone to this location as a group.

    « Best Western Oceanfront - VA Beach »

    The staff at this hotel are wonderful. The ocean view is spectacular. The rooms are pleasant - it was great to have a balcony overlooking the ocean! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this Best Western and in VA Beach.

    « Can't wait to return »

    My girlfriend (now fiancé) and I visited Virginia Beach in Sept. And were beyond thrilled with our visit to The Best Western! This is where I proposed to my future wife, but it wouldn't have been possible without Lee's help and willingness to go above and beyond what was expected. She not only assisted me in finding a plane company to fly a banner by "popping the question" but she kept it so discrete which made it that much more exciting and memorable for us. There are not many employees that would go to the lengths that she did to help me with such a special moment and we will be forever thankful for her. Someone give that girl a raise!!!

    Would stay at this property again. Location was good and room was quiet and slightly above average. View of beach area was excellent.. We were on a tight schedule so did not use any of the services other than room its self.

    This is not an upscale hotel, it was a nice place with a beautiful ocean view from our balcony. it is literally on the boardwalk of the beach. Has a nice indoor pool. A little confusing because there are non ocean view rooms but they are across the street. Just be clear which hotel you will be in. Good value for your money.

    « very nice week end »

    My sister & I spent 3 nights at this hotel in a handicap accessible room. The bathroom has a huge walk in shower which was perfect for my sister because she has difficulty getting in & out of a regular bathtub. It had a nice fold down seat & the shower wand was removable so it was easy for her to sit & shower. The room itself was overly large so had she been in a wheelchair there was ample room to maneuver.

    « Rain and wind cut our stay short »

    My wife and I were going to stay here for 4 days, but mother nature had other plans. We ended up just staying 1 night because the forecast was for high winds and coastal flooding for days. We did have fun though, the staff was very nice. Our room on the ocean was great, we got to watch the angry surf. We ate at the in-house restaurant it was very good. Also the included breakfast was adequate...Eggs, sausage, cereal and muffins. We will be back!!

    « Family Weekend »

    We originally booked here to attend the Neptune Festival. Because of wind and rain, most of the outside activities were cancelled. Instead we just had a family weekend together. The hotel was very nice. The breakfast was good and fresh. The girls loved the game room and the inside heated pool. The ocean view was amazing. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. I would definitely stay here again!
