Everything about this hotel, from the staff, food, internet, amenities, were amazing. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. We needed a 1st floor room since we were traveling with young children and they had no problem accommodating. I would def stay here again and recommend it!

This hotel is located right on the beach with excellent staff and located on the boardwalk. We attended in the off season and unfortunately there were some type of bugs living in the room. We were given another room which was bug free.

This hotel was great for our mini getaway. Friendly front desk staff, nicely decorated room. Only down sides were I assume we were close to the stairs as we heard the slamming of a heavy door and loud talking on and off throughout the night. Also, the bathrooms are pretty small.

Thank you so much for staying with us at The Best Western Plus Sandcastle Hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I was sorry to hear about your loud neighbors, some people have no respect and that's sad.

Very good location on the beach. Hotel is not that attractive from the exterior, but OK inside. All rooms face beach and boardwalk. No issues except for internet - had to log in again several times. Decent breakfast - nothing special, could have used more fruit.

Had a good nights stay. Everything was fine. Staff was friendly and check in and out was quick and easy. The bathtub had a drip. The parking garage is very tight. Taller vehicles might not fit. Great view and a beautiful sunrise. I would stay here again.
