Best Western has 2 buildings: one is located right along the ocean with 8 floors of rooms, almost all facing the ocean. The other building is located behind the main building with no views. I highly recommend paying the extra $10-20 for the oceanfront building. All rooms have balconies facing the waterfront with gorgeous views. The hotel itself is a bit outdated and the dÃ©cor definitely needs to be improved. There isnâ€™t much of a lobby. However, the gorgeous room views more than make up for the outdated hotel. We were not in the hotel much anyways as we were outside enjoying the beautiful spring Virginia Beach weather!
The room is very old and outdated. The beds are not very comfortable. The bathroom was pretty small and outdated. However, there is a flat screen TV, coffee maker, and fridge for convenience. The highlight of the room is the balcony (if you choose to stay in the main oceanfront building). We had a choice of an upper or lower floor â€“ we ended up getting the top floor (8th). I recommend getting an upper floor for the best views and the least amount of noise, especially during the crazy summer months.
We found a great rate of $100 per night. We could have received an even cheaper rate if we booked earlier â€“ this was the price one day prior to check in. For a prime location right on the boardwalk, this really was a steal. Many other hotels in the area were priced much higher. Rates vary depending on season, with pricing as low as $76. We were looking for a hotel right on the boardwalk so we could walk out the door and be able to use the bike path and walking path. Even though it isnâ€™t the fanciest hotel, we got the views and direct access to the beach that we desired.
Overall, Best Western Oceanfront Plus is a good stay for those looking for direct access to the beach and great views from your room. Yes, the hotel is a bit rundown and outdated. However, if convenience is what you are looking for â€“ then you will get it. An onsite restaurant and bar, ocean views, and walking right out to the beach are the amenities that make this hotel worth the stay. How often will you actually be in the hotel anyways? I will take an older hotel right on the beach over a fancy hotel miles away any day. I take a beach vacation to spend time at the beach!
