Recent guest reviews

Night girl from front desk was rude at check in. Instead of greeting us she asked if we tryna check in and Was on a personal cell-phone call the entire check in process. Also she gave us a smokers room when we specifically booked non smoking. Then gave us an attitude when we asked to change rooms. Andrea from front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, but bathroom was small and the sick was outside of the bathroom which was odd. The pool her small and breakfast left a lot to be desired, but hey its included in price and saved money. Also would have been nice if there was a gym on-site. But overall hotel was decent for families on a budget.

Rooms and furnishings are old, poorly maintained and show their age.

Great value and clean rooms. We stayed for the weekend and would stay again. Arrived late in the evening and the staff was very nice for the stay.

Just needed a clean and cheap room for overnight stay and this was perfect. Kudos to maid staff as the room was spotless.

Dirty room.. nasty nasty, nasty, nasty, nasty, nasty..

The hotel is set back from the road and the sign is small, but once you find it all is well. The check in was fast and friendly. The room smelled lightly of scented cleaning products, but was fine and clean, which is really important to me. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The fridge was big and clean. And there was a microwave and area above it to store the food we brought with us. There was plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 little kids to spread out with all our stuff. The breakfast area is small and the food is simple, but it was fine with us. Each employee that we met was super nice and helpful. Overall we were very satisfied!

it was ok for what I needed to do!! ..... This asking that I continue to write... Really don't have any thing else to say about my stay beside it was ok!! Smh!!

Myself and my family enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Center Inn. The location was within a reasonable distance from our destinations which included the Virgina Beach Aquarium and the Zoo. Our room was clean and tidy with very comfortable beds and pillows. Staff was friendly.

I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The room wasn't ready on time and the cleanliness could have been better. On the plus side the staff were friendly and courteous.

I was in Norfolk Virginia on businesswas across the street almost checking into a much lower less hotel when I seen this Best Western I looked online and it has very good reviews and booked it and I'm very glad I did I had a very clean very nice room with a king size bed nice flat screen TV clean bathroom I was very comfortable for the couple days I stayed here the staff was always very friendly and very helpful

This is a road motel, on a busy highway, with problematic security, and crowded rooms with people in an out at night. The room was not smoke free (it smelled of smoke) even though I had children with me. There is no way this is a three star accommodation. Convenient off bridge into Norfolk, and within 10 minutes of Virginia Beach and 2 hours off Outer Banks if you want to break off your trip into two legs and arrive at Outerbanks early, but I recommend you look for something else.

Staff super friendly! Free breakfast was awesome. Especially the young woman who was so cheerful and happy preparing all the food. Great hotel if you just need a place close to the airport and sites. Highly recommend room with two queen beds. Would stay there again!

An average hotel stay. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. No microwave and refrigerator froze everything inside.

The good... Staff was perfect. Friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. The bad... Beds are terrible. Hard and uncomfortable. Location wasn't good. Lots of unfriendly looking people walking the streets. The pool had a white slime on it...so we didn't chance it. The ugly...breakfast was a complete joke. It was horrible. Watery eggs, cold hard sausage and stale bread. Yum. Way overpriced for what we got. Should be no more than 90$ a night for that place. Don't stay there unless you have to.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for five nights during our Virginia Beach vacation. It was great! A friendly and helpful staff, large, clean rooms, and a value you can't beat. It wasn't in the best location, but it was a short drive to the beach. I would definitely recommend this Best Western to someone on a budget.

Pool in parking lot. Two guys sitting in a car in the parking lot facing pool. Cleaning staff taking up reception chairs. Wrong room guy given. Staff attitude couldn't care, even when I cancelled. No refund either - beware! Do not pay in advance, they will not refund you either even if you booking is refundable.

This was our first time at this hotel location. We have stayed at Best Western before, but not this one. Our room was ready when we arrived: about 3:15pm. The room smelled at first--a damp smell, but after the air condition was on a whlie, it was fine. We stayed in 116: it was near the vending and ice machine, but surprisingly it was quiet. My wife and I stayed three nights and there were other guest, but I enjoyed the quiet. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfasat close time was 9:00 am, so we didn't get to get breakfast. We would stay there again. It was very affordable.

Good location, sufficiently isolated not to be noisy (or solidly built perhaps). Good location to get to most anything in Norfolk or VA Beach.

Average hotel. Comfy and clean. Left too early in the morning to sample the breakfast.

Not as highest as expected, but ok. The star rating is not as accurate.
