Best Western Plus Oceanfront was a perfect choice for the second half of our Virginia Beach vacation. It is located right on the boardwalk with fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean. All rooms in the main building come with individual balconies. Just make sure to book an oceanfront room as the second building is located behind the main with no views! Rates vary by season, with spring rates being much lower. Our room was only $100 – not bad for an oceanfront view!
There are 8 floors – we had the choice between an upper and lower floor. We went with an upper floor to take in the full views. The views from the 8th floor balcony were stunning! I recommend an upper floor, if available, especially during the summer months as it gets more crowded and noisy.
I really liked the fact that we were able to step right outside the door of this hotel and enjoy the boardwalk. It was so convenient! We just grabbed our bikes off the car and hopped right on the bike path. If you haven’t ever been to Virginia Beach, the boardwalk is one of the cleanest I have seen. The sand is crystal clean as well. It also feels extremely safe, even at night.
The hotel itself is pretty basic – nothing too fancy. The lobby is really small. The rooms are a bit small and outdated, but the views more than make up for the lack of fancy decor. There is an indoor pool and fitness center which faces the ocean. We didn’t take advantage of the fitness center as we were too busy exercising and exploring outside, but it did look nicer than average. An outdoor pool and hot tub is available at the non-oceanfront building (just a short walk outside). There is a great restaurant on site called Shoreline Grill – great food, prices, and views of the water! A seasonal ice cream shop is located on the bottom floor.
A free breakfast buffet is included each morning in the Shoreline Grill. This breakfast was a lot better than other hotel continentals. There were several hot options available as well as the typical baked goods, which was a pleasant surprise.
I recommend the Best Western Plus Oceanfront if you are looking for a beach experience without blowing your budget. Room rates are affordable and you still get access to the boardwalk and awesome views from your private balcony. The Best Western Plus Oceanfront is a great addition to your Virginia Beach vacation!
