Welcome to Best Western Plus Holiday Sands Inn & Suites!

Colonial Williamsburg and fishing are two big reasons many guests stay at our Norfolk hotel, and there are endless possibilities to make the dream vacation a reality.

Are you looking for the perfect oceanfront room? At our Norfolk hotel, a private beach is just steps away. Spend the day sunbathing, playing in the surf, or fishing in the waters. Suites with full kitchens make extended stays simple, and our friendly staff is dedicated to ensuring your stay is as pleasant as possible. The history of the area draws cultural enthusiasts and history buffs to the area, and it is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway.

This hotel in Norfolk, VA is also near the Naval Base, and our Norfolk hotel caters to many service men and women. Close proximity to military installations and bases make commutes easy so that guests can squeeze in plenty of leisure time, too. The Virginia Arts Festival International Tattoo event is a particular favorite.

Our Norfolk hotel also offers close proximity to universities and colleges in the area. If you are a visiting student, professor or staff member, welcome to your home away from home. Festivals throughout the summer from May to October make those long summer months a little more enjoyable, and big college events like graduation and move-in weekend are simple to get to when staying with us.

We are centrally located between all naval installations, including Naval Station Norfolk, Little Creek Expeditionary Base, and Norfolk Naval Air Station. Business travelers with Norfolk Portsmouth Shipyard, Norfolk Southern and Langley and Newport News Shipyard also depend on our Norfolk hotel to provide clean, comfortable accommodations. Our hotel offers many spacious rooms with kitchens, giving guests everything they need for a longer stay.

Sands and Suites

10/11/2018 Mike M,

I visit Norfolk 6-8 times per year to spend time with my son's and stayed at most the hotels in Oceanview. Sands and Suites is by far the friendliest and cleanest. The employees have went above and be... more

Mike, thanks so much for the review, it puts a smile on my face to hear that yet another one of our valued guests had a great time and will be a returning guest. I am fortunate to have the staff that I do who try their best to meet requests from our guests no matter how out of the ordinary they may seem...I will admit that helping with basketball practice is a new one for us, but if we can help make someone's stay just a little bit better, we will try our best.

Fine for our purposes!

We got a great rate, esentially because we called the hotel directly after 5:00 p.m. The room wasn't huge, but certainly big enough for two of us. It's called a suite, but I'd advised against having m... more

Glad to hear that you had a great stay and for a great price. From your description it sounds as you may have been in one of our King Junior suites with a sitting room, and a bedroom with a king sized bed. For your next stay, we actually offer 3 different suites on the property. Our King Junior Suite, our Standard suite, which has 2 queen sized beds, a queen sized sleeper sofa, one of the beds being in it's own separate bedroom, and a 3/4 sized galley kitchen. We also offer our Manager's Apartment which is a 600 sq ft apartment with two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed and bathroom, a living room with a queen sized sleeper sofa, and a full eat-in kitchen.

Linda, thanks for the kind review, we are glad to here you enjoyed yourself while visiting your son. We are centrally located between several of the bases in the area so visiting military family is very convenient. Plus with being right on the bay with homecomings and deployments, you can see the ships coming/going right behind the building.

We enjoy staying here. Love the view and sound of the waves. Love that they are dog friendly. But, the price charged upon check out was not the price quoted. The clerk that gave us the quote denie... more


Average room with nice amenities. Beautiful view of ocean

11/10/2018 DonBXX,

The breakfast was a slightly better version to the standard BW breakfast. The front desk staff were friendly. The room had a microwave, safe, and a balcony looking over the ocean. A little pricey for ... more
