Great location right on the Cheaapeake Bay. My 4th floor room had a nice balcony that provided excellent views of the Bay. At night the lights of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel where clearly visible in one direction and the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel in the other.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. You do get an exquisite view from our balcony rooms...not only of the tunnels, but of the ships, and if you catch it at the right time, the dolphins just yards off the shore. We hope to see you again soon!

This property is way overdue for some expensive loving care and refurbishment. Yes we were there off season so except for one quick walk the beach (and it is right on the beach) was no use to us, and the swimming pool was closed. But you park at the back of the block, the first thing you realise is that...

This hotel provides good accommodations and good value in an area with few other options. The staff is very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast is good. You can walk out onto the beach on the Chesapeake Bay. On this trip I stayed in the hotel's high rise building on the top (fifth) floor. From my balcony I had good views...

James, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I do have to agree with you, the view from the 5th floor of the tower building is breathtaking. We hope to see you again next time you are in the area.

The B.W. Holiday Sands Inn & Suites was the nicest Best Western we have used in recent years. It was so nicely furnished, the kitchen area was so convenient and of course, it was nice to look out the window at the Bay. Everything was immaculate . Unfortunately, we arrived late and left early the next morning so didn't have...

The room we have has a living area with a pull out couch and a separate sleeping area with the king bed. It is a great set up for families or for people traveling with another couple. Staff is friendly, breakfast is good. The only critique is that the pull out couch is very dated and needs to be replaced....

Spring for a beachfront room, and you can sip coffee on your balcony as the waves lap on the shore about 50 yards away. Very pleasant. The motel itself is pretty tired -- could use a makeover. Cracked plaster, creaky elevator, etc. Staff was extra friendly and helpful. My first room stank, probably because of water damage from recent passage...

I spent two nights here and was very satisfied. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. A full breakfast, free parking, and free wifi was available. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The hotel was easy to find; my only "complaint" is an inability to find a regular restaurant nearby, but this was not an issue since I spent...

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As you noticed, we are in a more residential area so there are really no restaurants within walking distance to us, but my staff is always ready to give suggestions to local restaurants, most within a short 4-7 minute drive from where we are located.

My husband and I have stayed here twice now. Both times we were pleased with what we received. This place isn't very fancy and both rooms we stayed in were outdated, but the staff, location, and cleanliness was awesome. I do believe there are some rooms being updated, as my in-laws stayed in a room upstairs from us and theirs...

We were wanting access to a beach front hotel---this definitely fit the bill! The price was much more reasonable than I had expected to pay. There is a wide range of motels along the street, but this one was just what we were looking for. The room was average, but nice---comfortable bed and clean. The A/C was a little musty,...

Good Value for a base from which to sight see and tour. Staff members are very accommodating. Access to the beach is a plus. Breakfast is good, fast and well served. Pricing is great. Good on sight parking and on main road.
