“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

My husband and I stayed four nights before joining a cruise. I was very worried as I had bought the hotel sight unseen. However apart from needing a little TLC which I believe is on the cards, our stay was lovely. The staff were all so very helpful and nice and the rooms spacious and clean, bathroom was very good.
Thank you to all staff from the front desk, the bar staff, the breakfast lady and our room cleaner for making our stay a good one.

Best part of this hotel is the location! It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, $11 cab ride from the pier, and close to the airport. Since we arrived before check in time, we had to wait for our room. We were by the pool waiting. I let the front staff know they couldn't reach by cellphone but that we were close by. I checked an hour and half later and our room was ready and no one came to tell us. Oh well, it's ok as it was before the check in time.

Our room was on the second floor. It seemed decent and clean, although showing signs of ageing including the bathroom and doorway. There's a microwave, fridge, and safe though.

The walls are thin, so if you are a light sleep you may not get a good sleep from the noise of the traffic, tv in the other rooms, and talking from other guests.

The breakfast was included and it was decent. There was hot food including ham and I made myself a breakfast sandwich. There's a bar with a small menu. We had the bbq chicken sandwich and came with a bag of chips. Although it wasn't really bad, I wouldn't recommend eating here unless you want the convenience. There isn't a lot of restaurants near by, but about 10-15 minutes walking along the beach you will find some.

The next morning we were going to take a cab to the airport but the front desk said there was a shuttle coming. We thought this was complimentary from BW but found out it was $11/person once we arrived at the airport and the driver asked for $22. Not sure if it would have been cheaper to take a cab as traffic was light.

There's a pool and lounge chairs around. If you get a room on the second floor, you can also go out to the patio area with tables and chairs.

If you are looking for a place to stay longer than a night or two, I don't think I would recommend this place. Too noisy and outdated rooms.

The property itself is fine. Room was fairly clean, breakfast was ok, room was somewhat overpriced, but the staff was far below average. The check in clerk seemed disinterested and charged us again for the room that was pre-paid and then charged us four (4) times for overnight parking. The manager hung up on my wife when she called to have the charges reversed. It took over an hour and a half and multiple phone calls to get the charges reversed. Won't be staying at any Best Western again after this experience.

Dear Guest,
We are very sorry. I believe this was a transmission error which was corrected from our side the same day, however this sometimes takes a few days to show up. I apologize for any inconvenience. We hope you give us another opportunity in the future.
Sincerely,
Carolina

The check in clerk with Best Western Oceanside Inn in Fort Lauderdale charged us again for our room which was pre-paid, charged us four (4) times for one night of parking, was totally disinterested during check in and the manager (Jennette) hung up on my wife when she called to have the charges reversed. It took over an hour and a half and multiple calls to get the charges reversed. Will not stay at any Best Western again.

I would stay here again, although the price was still a bit high for me in April. Taking into consideration it was right on the beach and I do live in south florida, I understand the pricing. Overall it was just fine. Relaxing Monday morning poolside sitting by the waterfall sipping a bloody mary.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. Check us out late summer or fall when we many times are able to offer great value deals during the off season. However this year we will be doing some renovation work to improve the hotel.
Please call me directly with any questions.

I was a little worried about staying here based on some of the reviews, but the hotel is very nice and located right at the beach (not on the beach but at the beach.) We got off a cruise and had to wait for our room which was ready while we were at lunch - lots earlier than check-in time. Our room was clean with newer carpet, a nice t.v. and plenty of room. One really great thing about our room is that we had a private balcony. Some of the balconies are shared but because ours was private, we could sleep with our door open for some fresh air and we didn't have to listen to the air conditioner all night. So our room was really perfect for us. We did not spend any time at the pool or use the workout room but the pool area did have a nice feel and we could hear families there from our balcony. The breakfast was good by hotel standards with hot eggs and a breakfast meat each morning in addition to the waffle station, cereals, breads, juices, yogurt, etc. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We liked the private balcony we had but our view wasn't much. If you like being able to keep yo...
