We come to Virginia Beach every February for a weekend. We started doing it 4 years ago. It just seemed like a nice getaway. We reserved online with Sandcastle because it was the cheapest and I of course was looking econo. We got there the first year and I fell in love. The staff is wonderful. The rooms are always clean and I'm tell you what the first time you sit out on the balcony and watch the sun come up over the ocean it's like being in a different world. My 6 and 8 year old love it especially the indoor pool. There's so much that's close by. It's just really a wonderful hotel and I would recommend to anyone.
