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.

Some of the beds were broken in to the point it was a giant U shape bend and where you would roll out to the floor

The reservation got messed up and someone from the staff threw away our laundry bag with our clothes in it. The housekeeper said yes they bag was there and the person who follows her to empty trash must have grabbed it. We still don't have our stuff back.

What enjoyed most about my Best Western Plus Sandcastle Beachfront Hotel was the fact that it was right on the beach / boardwalk. Not only could I hear the sound of the ocean from my room, but the holiday lights were on display on the boardwalk and it made for many relaxing strolls up and down the boardwalk.
Other Comments
The staff, from the front desk, maintenance employees and housekeeping, were all friendly and helpful. They reached out to ask if there was anything they could do to enhance my stay. There were two negatives about my stay. First, upon was returning to my room one afternoon my senses were offended by a 'seweragey' smell. However, I called the front desk to notify them. I thenleft the hotel for dinner and when I came back the smell was gone. Second, upon booking my stay on TravelZoo, I found the hotel cheaper, by ten dollars a night, on another site. I should have taken the time to see if I could have had my rate reduced to match the lower rate, but I didn't bother trying. Overall, I feel I got a very off-season, fair price for the room.

TV connection fixed within minutes of calling the front desk. As a frequent traveler, this was the best variety of food options that I have seen at a hotel breakfast buffet.
