Great place to stay summer and winter (too cold for the ocean and pool). Housekeeping is a little slow. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good and quick. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

I needed a place to stay while work was being done inside of my apartment. I had asked for a possibility of a very early check-in since I didn't have anywhere to go stay during the day and it's pretty chilly outside now. The woman at the front desk was wonderful. She helped me ou

Sarah, thank you for the great review, I am glad to hear that you were well taken care of by my team. While we do have a guaranteed check-in time of 4pm, and with several different room types sometimes we can't get people into their rooms until just about 4pm, we definitely do try our best to get people in as soon as we can, and if a room is clean and ready we don't mind getting our guest checked in so they have a chance to relax after traveling.

Beautifully located property. Nice rooms and very clean. Super employees! Dog walk is fenced next to the beach equipped with dog bags and trash. Beach lovers with dogs will love this property.
Would definitely stsy here again.

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 beyond every time I stay. They've went as far as helping my son with his basketbal

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.

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 more than 3 adults in the room. There's a "sitting area" with a separate TV, a wr

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.

Do they have late check out
You'll have to call them and ask. We've always checked out early to beat the horrible traffic at the HRBT.

Is there shuttle service from Norfolk International to the hotel? Hoping so. If so, what number do we call for pickup?
No there is not.

What are the dog requirements?
We allow dogs only, two dogs per room up to 80lbs per dog. There is a $20.00 per night pet fee, and we do limit pets to certain rooms. There is at least one pet friendly room for each of the different room types we have available...we have 14 pet friendly rooms in total. Please make sure to mention that you will be traveling with a pet when making your reservations (best to call the property directly) as we do not allow pets in any of our non pet friendly rooms.

How far are from the USS Wisconsin?
The Wisconsin is located just outside of the Nauticus Naval Maritime Museum located in downtown Norfolk. From our property it is about a 20 to 25 minute drive. I would suggest if you are planning on visiting Nauticus and the Wisconsin that you leave yourself plenty of time...if you are planning on taking your time and seeing everything that both has to offer it will take you several hours.

How far away from the beach walking distance
We are beach front property located right on the shore of the Chesapeake bay. Our patio walks right onto the beach. There is also the resort beach in Virginia Beach where the boardwalk and all of the tourist shops are located. That is a short 30 minute drive from us.

"Choose another hotel."
"We like the Suite room with a separate bedroom."
"If you want to see the beach, ask for a 3rd floor balcony room. If a kitchen is more important, ask for a suite."
"Spring for a room with a balcony on an upper floor."
"Get a room with a view of the Bay."
