Company is NOT medical marijuana friendly AT ALL. They are non smoking rooms, which is fine, so as not to be rude I packed my vaporizer (since it’s illegal in my state to smoke, only vaping allowed)and took my vape outside to use it for the two nights I stayed. After check out they went thru my trash and got out the marijuana stems, took a picture of it and charged my account $100 extra for smoking in the room!! They can see me leaving the room all throughout my stay and using my vape outside but because I had the remanence in the trash in the room they said that was “evidence” I SMOKED inside the room. As far as I’m aware you wouldn’t get charged that fee if they had found cigarette butts in the trash. That is DISCRIMINATION against everyone with a Medical Marijuana Card. I will not and no one that I know that supports the medical marijuana movement will approve of Best Westerns policy of, we found a stem as proof you smoked in our room to rip people off! They should straight advertise or put it in their policy for you to read before you get the room that you are not allowed to smoke ON THE PREMISE not just in the rooms.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel was really great. Looking at exterior entry hotels in the general Norfolk area left me really nervous to find somewhere decent. This was way beyond decent. The view was incredible from our balcony and there was easy access to the beach. The pool was really great and my kids loved it. I stayed out on the balcony for a long time in the evening just enjoying the sound of the ocean. Room totally met our needs and was clean. No complaints. There was some smoking around in the breezeways that I wish they would have shifted to the side but it wasn't too big of a deal. Easy parking. Elevator even to exterior entry room.

First time with a dog along. Front desk staff very kind. Being next to the beach was wonderful and breakfast was very good. Room could use some work, but as said first time in a dog friendly room. One tv did not work, but one did.

We found ourselves. My almost 70yr old mom, And our two little ones at 3am without a place to go after spending nearly $1,400 on a two night stay at a misleading VRBO nearby that was absolutely awful (smelled so bad and mattresses so uncomfortable that we couldn’t even sleep). We desperately called Best Western Plus Holiday Sands Inn hoping to salvage our vacation and thankfully an angel named KELLY at front desk picked up. She was empathetic and very helpful-she was able to book us a hotel and thankfully housekeeping was able to turn the room over so we could have an early check in. When we arrived LULA was so sweet very welcoming-ALL front desk was incredibly kind, the room was CLEAN and I LOVED the citrus soap in the room. We loved the beautiful beach access and how quiet the room was. Staff were very accommodating, friendly, masked and wonderful with our kids as well. THANK YOU SO MUCH for saving our day!!!!!!!!! Loved the sunsets and memories made

We're surprised at the good reviews for this hotel. We were dismayed by the appearance of the outside of the motel - it looked a bit run-down when we pulled up, although the outside public areas were in good condition. The room smelled like dogs, which didn't bother us too much since we'd brought our dog. We've traveled a few times recently and we understand that hotels are understaffed, so our expectations for cleanliness are low. We don't expect cleaning during our stay, but we want the room to be clean when we arrive. The faux wood floor was filthy and our socks were black after being in the room for an hour. The staff immediately came to clean it but it didn't make much difference needs a much more thorough cleaning. The shower drain was broken and the water backed up in the shower. The staff came and fixed the blockage and said they'd repair the drain after our visit. The batteries were missing from the room safe but the front desk gave us more and we fixed it. The small armchair in the room looked so grubby that I didn't want my son to sit in it, so we put a sheet over it first. The doorframe to the small balcony was rusty. A staff member told us other rooms were nicer but said they're aware pet-friendly rooms need updating. The room was worth less than half the rate we paid. A review mentioned listening to the waves at night, but the window didn't open and the door was a heavy security door that was difficult to prop open and it wasn't safe to leave it open. A friend who lives a few towns away told us the beach isn't safe to walk on at night - which is true for many areas. The good - the outside areas of the hotel were well-kept. The pool looked clean but was very crowded so we didn't use it. The landscaping and pet walking area were very nice. The beach was clean and nice and right outside the door. There are no restaurants or stores within walking distance but the front desk was helpful in suggesting places we could drive to. Overall, I expected better from a Best Western and we'll be avoiding them in the future.
