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, 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, 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 that lead to an outdoor sundeck. 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.

At check-in Sheila was great and provided me with all the information I needed to have an enjoyable stay. On the 2nd floor for Breakfast, Shina and Tiffany were great. Anything that was missing on the buffet you just asked one of them and they bought it out promptly with a smile.

The TravelZoo discount was what made me book at the Sandcastle without it, the hotel out of season would have cost more than I was willing to pay.

The hotel decided to pressure wash the garage one morning on the side where our car was parked but first called all guests to give us the option to move our cars before spraying. Great customer service!

The location of the breakfast buffet was way too small for the amount of guests and they ran out of food on Sunday.
