I agree with most reviewers about cleanliness. The room was very clean and the bed was soft. I had interaction with security when I went in the gym with slippers. I would say it's a great hotel for sleeping only but really there is not much to do in area. I suggest staying in Port Lucaya

Just got back from a trip to Freeport.
Stayed at the Western Castaways.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Off the
beach, but a free shuttlebus will take you
there.
Quick taxi service to Port Lucaya.
Would stay there again.

I visited Freeport from Nov. 2-8 with a friend of mine. We had a blast, as the hurricane damage (minimal, by this point) seems to be keeping people away, so there are very few tourists on the island.

We stayed at the Best Western, got a $70/night rate through Orbitz (remember there is an islandwide 15% tax, so our 6-night total was about $560). You will find nowhere better for the money. It was clean, and you need card access to get just about anywhere, so it keeps out the stragglers. The pool was nice and very clean. They also have a pool bar, but I can't comment on that, because it wasn't open during our stay. They have also a free shuttle to the beach, which leaves several times a day.

Someone complained about the security "glaring" at them. However, they were nothing but friendly and helpful to us, as was the front desk.

The hotel restaurant leaves much to be desired. We ate most nights right around the corner in the Int'l Bazaar. For those who can't leave American food behind, there is a Papa John's directly across the street, and Burger King and McDonald's are a half-block away.

As far as the other reviewer complaining about "panhandlers," we encountered one single person in six nights.

All in all, we had a fantastic time. If you can deal with not staying on the beach, then I'd recommend the Best Western.
