Our Virginia Beach hotel is located directly on the world famous Virginia Beach boardwalk. Guests will enjoy a great location with easy access to the beach, and amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. Our Virginia Beach oceanfront hotel is conveniently located steps from the water, ensuring a romantic or exciting vacation. This Virginia Beach hotel is popular for weddings and vacation escapes; we also have oceanfront meeting space available. Beachfront views with easy access to the beachfront make our Virginia Beach hotel a favorite among guests. The comfort of the guest is always our top priority. You'll feel welcome and right at home the moment you arrive. We offer onsite parking, and a free, full breakfast buffet daily! Children 12 and younger stay free. Indulge at the make-your-own-waffle station and fill up with your favorite pastries and fruits, cereal and yogurt. Our famous 100% Arabica coffee and cold juices are the ideal end to the most important meal of the day. The Virginia Beach boardwalk is moments away, but many of our Virginia Beach hotel guests come to town for the Neptune Festival and the American Music Festival. From major holidays at the beach to sporting tournaments at the Convention Center, there's always something happening nearby. We're the closest hotel to the 14th Street fishing pier, there are two restaurants onsite, and we're newly renovated, with each room having a private balcony. Business travelers and service men and women stay with us because we're close to Dam Neck Naval Base, Fort Story Army Base and NAS Naval Air Station Oceana. Enjoy the heated indoor pool year-round and free high-speed Internet, whether you're here for business or pleasure. It's always important to be connected and have a place to relax.

Great week at Virginia Beach

This is a very nice hotel, very clean, the staff is very helpful, courteous and outgoing. The rooms are a little small, we had a two queen bed room and my wife and I were tripping over each other allot. Some of the rooms have the sink outside of the bathroom, ours did not, something to consider asking for when booking a room. The hallways of this hotel are dark and hot, but all other areas are well lit and bright. Buffet breakfast is adequate, never had to wait for a table or fresh food, pancakes, french toast, bacon, biscuits and gravy, grits, yogurt, cereal and scrambled eggs. Location is nice,not in the center of things, but close enough to walk to anything. Fishing pier is right to the left of this hotel, head over to Eddies restaurant for Frozen Key Lime pie dipped in dark chocolate on a stick. Get it to go and take a late night walk on the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Great family vacation

First, we were allowed to check-in one hour early. The room was very clean and organized. It was oceanfront so the view was spectacular. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Our fee included a hot breakfast bar; that was delicious. Our location was perfect. I parked the car when we got there and it did not move until we were packing up to leave. This was an excellent experience.

Beautiful beachfront, good breakfast included

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The lobby was bright and beautiful, but the stairwells, parking and rooms were a bit dark. The balcony oceanfront view was nice and there was a refrigerator in the room, which was nice. The front desk employees were friendly and nice as were all of the support staff on the floors. All in all a nice stay. The breakfast was an actual buffet included in the price of the stay.

Great Oceanfront Hotel

Location is everything and the Sandcastle Resort, although undergoing renovation, was everything we expected and more. We were pleasantly surprised to see from our balcony quite a few dolphins frolicking in the ocean, near the pier. And, although the Atlantic Ocean is still rather cold in June, the pool and deck on the 2nd floor were well worth our quick, last-minute, beach getaway. We will definitely go back!

dec 4th weekend stay

We were fine with everything. Breakfast was good. Kids enjoyed making waffles. Rooms do not have much space to walk around. It is fine if you are not planning to stay in the hotel for a long time. Parking is very tight.

Right on the beach!

We had a very good time on VA Beach for the two nights we stayed before traveling to South Carolina. The children loved the fact that the hotel was right on the beach. The "waffle lady" was alittle abrupt with the kids during the breakfast, but overall it was a good experience and we plan on returning again next year.

It's OK

This was our first trip to Virginia Beach. The hotel is clean, the beds are fine, the view is great; but the hotel is very old and worn and needs to be updated. The staff at the desk is very friendly and accomodating. I'm not sure if I would stay there again.
