Located on Virginia Beach’s boardwalk, the Best Western Plus Sandcastle Beachfront Hotel is the ideal setting for a family trip to the ocean and conveniently located less than 2 miles from kid-friendly exhibits at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and Virginia Aquarium.

Rooms have large windows -- many with ocean views and balconies -- dark-wood furnishings and modern accents in bold shades of red and orange. Each room is equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, coffee maker, microwave and free Wi-Fi. The property has three suites, each with a kitchenette, to accommodate larger groups and families.

Each morning, guests are treated to a complimentary breakfast, an omelette bar, fresh pastries, fresh yogurt and seasonal fruit. Ocean's 14, the on-site restaurant, serves seafood for lunch and dinner.

The property features a glassed-in pool and hot tub area that leads to an outdoor sun deck. The fitness center looks out onto the ocean and pier. Steps from the hotel grounds, the 3-mile boardwalk is lined with restaurants, amusement park rides and the Virginia Legends Walk, educating visitors about the state's most famous citizens, including Thomas Jefferson, Ella Fitzgerald and Robert E. Lee.

Room was dusty and outlets didn’t work. We were on the 9th floor and the elevator would randoly stop at the 8th and go back to the lobby so we had to carry our luggage up a flight of stairs. Long wait for elevators. Smoke smell in room.

I only have one suggestion. When you put your breakfast out, the french toast and waffles need to be in a different warmer as they were barely warm(cold by the time you got to your table) and the syrup should be right next to them as they were across the room. Maybe a pot of hot syrup would be helpful.

took forever to check in. there was only one person that would handle incoming guests. the other was always on the phone. we had to take a 9th floor room because the only other floor available was where a wedding event was. the 9th floor was loud all night long. also the breakfast food was hardly replenished and right when we got there we were told it was closing. you don't do that when we are in the middle of getting food! also the coffee pot was broken!

The room was basically as expected for a mid-range hotel. Balcony overlooking the beach and pier was nice, but somewhat tired.
Other Comments
A key factor in choosing this property was the included breakfast. During the off season (February), there is no excuse for overcrowding demand, but the breakfast was woefully lacking. Whatever fruit was gone and not replenished one hour into the 3 hour breakfast window. About 1 1/2 hours into the breakfast time, milk was completely gone. The selection and appearance of the food was poor. Disappointed. Also, only one of three elevators was working. Sad.
