Fair 4.0
dirty room
There was dust everywhere in the room. The floors were dirty. It seemed the room was cleaned months ago, had not been used or recleaned before it was rented out. I understand no room service because of Covid 19 but there was no clean wash cloths.
Rodney, us3 night trip
Very good 8.0
good stay.
It’s Covid time and I understand limit amount of room service and breakfast, so I won’t get upset about it. The hotel is nice but it really need remodeling. The price was right and the staffing hospitality was very good. The ocean view was so relaxing and the restaurant downstairs was great. Really hope BW fix the lighting and get some good remodeling. I’ll stay there again.

Poor 2.0
Worst vacation ever
My first vacaction in over 18 years the staff was rude unaccommadating. Me and my sister got ate up by some kind of bug in the bed. Have oictures. Went to change the sheets there were dirty urine and blood stained mattress cover under a clean mattreas cover It was horrible. We are still waiting fir the general manager ti call back. Our last day of our trio was completely ruined. Bc we finally got to move rooms 12midniggt. And by time finished washing and drying our clothez it was 7 am.

Bad experience
I had higher hopes when I booked my summer vacation here. Unfortuantely, we didn’t have the greatest experience. The hotel has a great location with beachfront rooms. The rooms are spacious, but somewhat outdated. They we overall clean. The front desk service we received was very bad. They were really rude sometimes when talking to them, and had to call multiple times to get towels and any needs. They sent the wrong bed sheet size twice. There wasn’t any room service due to covid which is understandable however, the coffee machine was broke for a few days, and when they got the coffee dispenser it was empty for hours. When I brought this up, I was told that we have a coffee maker in our room in a very disrespectful way. One of the elevators was out of service for most of our stay which also was inconvenient. The worst part is that most of the employees in the hotel are NOT wearing masks although they have signs everywhere that masks are mandatory.alot of visitors have no masks on as well, which I am sure is a violation. Wouldn’t stay here again on my next visit to Virginia Beach.

Disgusting and very disappointed.
Our shower curtain had black mold. We asked for a new one and the new once also had black mold. Very disappointed. Our floors in our room had sand everywhere and pilies of sand in the corners. Do not stay here.

Avoid Best Western Sandcastle
Yes, this hotel is oceanfront - with an impeccable view of the ocean/pier - but let me assure you, this is all you get. The staff is mostly rude, the room was not clean upon arrival, both elevators were broken, so it was either stairs or service elevators, in which the staff - if they rode with you - would lecture you on why you shouldn't ride use that one. Those lecturing maintenance employees DO NOT wear masks and the hate and distaste for life is proudly displayed on most of their faces. Room's safe didn't work; dried up, vomit substance next to fridge; refrigerator itself smelled unbearable, woke up every day with AC somehow dropped to 60 degrees. Breakfast includes a muffin, rotten fruit and a tiny water bottle in a bag. While the staff mostly does not wear masks, they sure as hell practice social distancing with helping you. Must chase down the maid for fresh towels, bedsheets, etc (you service your own room due to Covid). Pool looks like it'll be under construction even after a vaccine is found. This place is so awful for the price.

The receptionist was very awesome but the room was very tight space. The bathroom was small the price I paid it overpriced for a room like that.
