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 television, 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 at 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.

The building itself was very old and rather dark. The furniture in the rooms was very cheap looking. The breakfast room was too small for all the the people.

Value, value, value! The staff was excellent.

My only complaint was the layout of the room. I travel extensively and if I can get a room with a view, I'll pay extra. The view from my room was the best. However, why wouldn't the room designer put the bed closer to the beautiful window so you could lay in bed and enjoy God's creation? Baffeling!
