Located directly on the Virginia Beach boardwalk, this hotel is ideal for a family beach vacation. This oceanfront hotel is only steps away from the beach and ocean. Children under 12 years old stay free. After a fun beach day or on a rainy day, families can still enjoy the water at the heated indoor pool. The kids can swim while the adults can relax. The spacious and comfortable guestrooms and suites feature a microwave, mini-fridge and flat screen television and DVD player. Wi-Fi access can also be found within the guestrooms so everyone can stay connected. Families will love to kick start each morning off right with the free hot breakfast buffet with items like waffles, eggs, hot and cold cereal, yogurt, fruit and more. A fitness center, with cardio and weight machines, is available for those who are seeking a workout and there are guest laundry facilities.

This older hotel is in need of an update. I had a room facing the ocean but the decor gave the room a seedy reddish glow. Housekeeping missed my room the fist day. Front desk service was great. Complimentary breakfast was adequate but the slop sink and cleaning chemicals by the coffee and food is off-putting.
Best Western Plus Sandcastle Beachfront Hotel is not a great representation of the Best Western Plus brand. The rooms are very outdated with stained, torn, and cracked furniture and linens. The bathroom is extremely small and had sagging ceiling tiles with water damage stains. Not to mention the cracked tiles and spider webs in the corners. The front desk and staff's customer service was great in spite of the conditions of the rooms. I was switched to five different rooms before accepting the fate of not being able to switch anymore.
