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 two 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 television, DVD player, coffeemaker, 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, including make-your-own-pancakes, fresh pastries and seasonal fruit. Pier 14, the on-site restaurant, serves seafood for lunch and dinner. Atlas Grille and Bar is open for three meals a day and also hosts happy hour most evenings.

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

Enjoyed Most: Location
William Oct 18, 2016 Sterling, VA, United States
Enjoyed Most: The location is perfect and the balcony is larger than most. Also the room arrangement was good with a table facing the ocean.
Other Comments: The hotel is very dated, needs sprucing up and a good cleaning. The halls and elevator are shabby. One of the elevators did not work and no one seemed to care about getting it fixed. Breakfast in the conference room was less than mediocre. went to Mc Donalds 2 days out of 3. Also, the sink (with little space to spread out for cosmetics etc.) outside the bathroom is not useful for women. (It's like most older Courtyards (Marriott), don't like the layout there either).

Enjoyed Most: oceanfront room
Other Comments: The staircases are extremely confusing on how to get out of the building. Also, the elevators were very unreliable so stairs were a necessity.

Enjoyed Most: I really liked that they had shampoo and body wash dispensers in the shower. I have never seen that before at a hotel. It was a huge convenience considering I forgot to pack my body wash :(.
