“Great hotel: exactly what we were looking for”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

My beautiful wife and I were here at this hotel in Florida, for 4 nights: 5/24,5/25 (drove around to Ft.Myers and Sarasota) and back on 5/30,5/31 ,for her speical birthday.We arrived at the hotel and were treated professionaly by the front desk, as always. This must have been our 4th time here. The front desk agreed to hold our bags and call us which they did when our room was ready. We knew we arrived way before check in and had already preplanned to have lunch and rent from Hertz before getting our room.We came back with the car and got the room and walked to the beach (maybe less than a 10 minute walk). What a beautiful beach! The beds in the room were very comfortable and the room was very clean. Our expectations from this BW Oceanside Inn were met again! Everyone we came in contact with was so nice. It made us feel like being home, but a whole lot better because we were in Ft. Lauderdale with beautiful beaches and palm trees.

As nice as everyone was, we want to point out someone exceptional at the hotel. She took care of us at breakfast time and was our keeper of our luggage after check out on 6/1. She also was our bartender and served us lunch while waiting that afternoon before going to the airport.Her name is Rose. She is an A+ person in our books.

This hotel is a gem and priced right. We booked thru AAA and got a good price.If you really want something more elegant and expensive, you can stay at the Marriott, but for my money, I am staying at this BW. We will return!

Enjoyed a one night get away with my husband. The room was nicely done and the balcony was great. We enjoyed the breakfast as well. The location was close to beach, and lots of dining and bar options. We really enjoyed our stay. Many of the hotels nearby were much more expensive and I feel this was a great in-between choice and did not disappoint.

overall very good but the breakfast this time has not been to our previous experiences. Luke warm at best and no biscuits and gravy for the 1st time. Reason for staying at this location is the convenience and proximity to the cruise terminal.

Dear Repeat Guest,

First of all thank you very much for staying with us through the years. I am very sorry to hear that your experience with the breakfast was not up to our usual standards. I apologize for this, and can assure that the specific situation has been reviewed with the personnel. (our food & beverage manager has been here for over 25 years) We do still serve hot biscuits and gravy however it is rotated in order to add variety, in the future if you contact me I will make sure we have them during your stay. Again thank you for all the years, and we hope to see you next year.
Sincerely,
Carolina Bello

This hotel has been frozen in time since the 70s and needs a complete up date from top to bottom. Walking along the hallway was like walking along a corridor in a prison cell block, dark and gloomy with a mustard coloured ceilings.Breakfast was ok if you like the same thing every morning, but collecting your breakfast on a paper plate and eating it with a plastic knife and fork I thought was shocking and would not expect this from any hotel. The pool was clean and warm but same as the hotel outdated with only eleven sun loungers to choose from. Location is great just a short walk to the beech and restaurants, but for me I personally like my hotels to be in the 20th century and not something from That 70s Show. Very Very disappointed and I will never stay at a Best Western Hotel ever again.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

Location, location, location. This was a reasonably priced hotel within 3 minutes walking from the beach. Staff was attentive and informational. Pool was clean and warm. Breakfast was standard Best Western.

The room was comfortable and clean. In room microwave and refrigerator were a plus.

Our only complaint was that we arrived early and the hotel could not accommodate us for an early check-in. However, in their defense they had a busload of exchange students arrive just after us.

I would stay here again without hesitation.

Stayed here with my sister over Memorial Day and have no complaints. Got a great rate using the bidding option on one of the travel sites, but the location is worth a higher price.

The appearance from the outside and the hallways inside looks a bit shabby, but everything else appearance to be clean, comfortable, and updated.

The beach was a 5 min or less walk away - we didnt have to cross the street at all - and it was a beautiful beach. Not crowded at all and very clean. Some of the other areas had more debris on the beach.

Pool area was nice and clean. Water was a little too warm to be refreshing, but I supposed that can't be helped in Florida. Everything looked new as far as the pool deck area and tables and chairs. There is a nice sun deck right above the pool, also.

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Everything was really fresh and tasty.

Room was average -- no view from our room, but it was clean and comfortable, which is all we really ask for.

Location was ideal for us. We like to go out and explore the nearest bars and restaurants and we didn't have a car for the weekend, but there was plenty to do and see within walking distance. We were about a 10 minute walk away from a decent strip of bars and restaurants. Took a pedicab to Las Olas Blvd. one night, which is also not far.

However, it was not in a congested or unruly area for anyone looking to avoid noisy or crowds. It was far enough away to be peaceful, but close enought to be accessible.

Also, right across from the marina where you can get the Water Taxi or any other boat excursions.

All interactions with the staff were pleasant. Everyone was very nice and helpful. At one point, we had to call housekeeping to come and help us out with a spill in the middle of the day and they were very accomodating and friendly.

Would reccomend to others and would stay here again.

Room Tip: 1st floor pool side would be nice or 2nd floor pool deck.

A clean, well run hotel in walking distance of the Marina and docks. We stayed there for a week and walked down to the boat. For lunches there were restaurants all around that we could walk to and get good food quickly.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the road side.
