    Sadly would not stay again…

    The location was amazing right on the beach and our room was oceanfront which we loved BUT the room itself was less than stellar. There was sand all over the floor, the sheets needed to be replaced on the bed (it didn’t look like they were changed nor cleaned before we arrived), and the room was just very outdated and old. The only positive was location and complementary breakfast.

    Our experience was great. The hotel offers a delicious breakfast from 7-10 am. The staff is very friendly. The room could’ve been a bit bigger, but it was fine for us. Our room was beachfront. The hotel is right on the beach, close to everything. We will return on our next vacation.

    Great hotel

    We rented 2 rooms for 4 nights. I want to say the staff were incredibly nice. The rooms were clean. When we got there, one of the air conditioners were not working. They immediately put a new unit in. No housekeeping due to Covid, but housekeeping was on the floor and switched out towels, toilet paper, etc. Again, everyone was friendly. Breakfast was good. I will visit this hotel again.

    Four night family getaway

    Room was oceanfront with a great view. Everything was clean and loved the Breakfast that was included every morning. Staff was always very friendly and ready to help with all your needs. Bathroom is on the small side but never an issue. Beds were nice and comfy. Parking was onsite. Would definitely stay here again!

    Great staff, outdated rooms.

    The staff was amazing. Every person I encountered at the front desk, dining room, elevator, etc. was extremely polite and super helpful. Everyone seemed happy about their job. Also, a great location. Unfortunately the room seemed very dated. Doors looked like they were about to be painted, I found at least two strands of hair in my linen, the beds were uncomfortable and there was rust and open spaces around the tub. The room was not worth the money we paid.

    DONT book the roof level room...

    The hotel itself was nice enough, but needs updating. Overall, the community areas (lobby, breakfast, halls, exercise, and pool) were clean. The pool seemed a bit old, and there isnt a hot tub. I thought there was based on pictures. Location couldnt be beat. Right on the beach. Parking garage was nice, parking rates fair. Service was great. Front desk people helpful. But if the customer rents the roof room, desk staff need to tell them how to get there. We went uostairs and couldnt find it, and were very confused. When we asked after we couldnt find it, they were super helpful. The roof room.....interesting concept. But it kind of felt like they just thought, well, maybe we could.make some extra money by throwing a room up there, and they left out a few things. The room seemed more basic than other rooms would have been, and the 'discounted' rate wasnt discounted enough to make it something I wouls have wanted to deal with had I known ahead if time. When we were there, there were storms and it was quite lpus through the roof. There was some sort of handle in the room that had nothing to do with our room ( esthetic change, but it really was odd). The shower head didntnhave a lot of pressure. The t.v. was difficult to make work. There was a oadlocked door to the outside thar possibly could have been covered up. Again. It seemed like they just thought, well, i can make some extra $$, ans literally just slapped the room up there.

    Outside area needs to be cleaned!

    The people were very friendly! The hotel seems old but in decent condition. The outside area was very dirty. Balcony side seemed to have things dropped from balcony and never picked up. We were stuck on the elevator on our last day, although very scary, the staff handled the situation well! Breakfast was ok but by the 6th day we were done with it lol. Overall it was a decent stay on the beach!

    Good

    I think what people need to know about vacationing in 2021 is that there are worker shortages everywhere, including at hotels. That being said we were happy with Best Western overall. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was the best I've ever had at a hotel. There are "hiring" signs literally everywhere at Virginia Beach. So I'm overlooking the minor cleanliness issues i saw while we were there. I would book this hotel again.
