Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn
Ranked #19 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This was not my first stay at a Best Western nor the first time in Fort Lauderdale.
The reason I booked this hotel was the breakfast and the fitness center. I have stayed at Best Western Plus hotels before so this one was a disappointing experience. The breakfast was alright but reheated food are never good. Cold eggs and pancakes from a machine are not my cup of tea.
The fitness room was super small. Three people maximum. Just dumbbells (up to 50) and a full body weight machine did not satisfied my fitness needs. The website did not show any pictures just saying all equipment were new (and they were) But the beach is close so there are no excuse not to exercise!
Location is great and the staff is friendly.
Smoking is allowed around the pool, on sun deck and outside the rooms. Disgusting!! The smell is awful and no place for kids(nor adults).
No this is not a Best Western Plus hotel. It's just a lower standard hotel with breakfast.

Excellent staff, the friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever met. Rooms were very clean and breakfast buffet was really good. It was really a pleasure when talking to the staff, they went out of their way to help.

Stayed two days to avoid higher weekend prices in Keys and Miami. Hotel easy walk to the beach. Wide loose sandy beach makes walking difficult. Not much "wet" beach to walk, and not many shells to find. Surf line of sea weed, so be prepared. Volley ball courts and picnic tables at entrance to the beach. Back to the hotel. Parking is two levels, both gated, and you are charged $11 parking per night. Upper level smaller, open air deck and usually full. Lower level larger, but tight for larger vehicles. Two elevators front and rear. Rear elevator needs room key to access from "street" level, best access to beach, down the upper parking deck ramp. Room is very clean, and new bedding. Shower is low pressure, but sufficient. Back door leads to a common balcony/hallway so most people dry towels and beach ware. Pool area has plenty of seating, tables, and very pleasant. Smaller pool, but what do you expect with a beach so close. Shower and foot wash area next to pool, not very handy coming from the beach. Grounds are well kept. Even rooms toward the front street face adjacent hotel pool area or in back the adjacent hotel wall. Odd numbered rooms face Best Western pool area. Pool are has outdoor lounge area. Second floor has larger seating area. Third level has several chairs next to the AC units, so it is very loud seating area. Hotel staff were very friendly from front desk to cleaning staff. Maid even noticed our door was ajar and checked to be sure we were in the room. Breakfast is very different. Hostess will take your "meal ticket" and seat you as availability occurs. Don't forget your ticket each time. Can be a wait at rush time. Hostess is very friendly and accommodating. They apparently frown on eating in pool area except when it is packed full. Large breakfast area, but appears hotel is very popular with overseas visitors. First morning they had hash, a new experience in hotel breakfast bars but expected in Europe? Had ham slices and pork patties both days, eggs, standard bread offerings, and European salami slices and cheeses. Plenty of topping for the scrambled eggs from tomatoes, to salsa, cheese, jalapenos, banana peppers, etc. Recommend for family stay in the Miami area. Miami only thirty minute drive, so not bad road trip. I will return given the opportunity.

Dear Key West bound guest,
We are so glad you gave us the opportunity to host you during your trip to Florida. Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write about your experience. Your comments are valuable to us and help us make changes to improve your future stay.
Wishing you a safe and fun trip to the Keys. I strongly recommend the sunset sailings. The last time I was there a pair of dolphins swam along and played the entire tour.
Hoping you visit us again in the future
Sincerely,
Carolina Bello

I stayed at the Best Western Oceanside Inn June 12-15 and have nothing but positive things to say. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, large, comfortable, quiet, and up to date. Very close walk to the beach, about 15 minute walk to where all the shopping and restaurants. We loved the free breakfast in the morning- they did not skimp! I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a nice place for a great value.

Me and my kids had a great time and didn't have to spend a lot plus breakfast was included. Rooms were clean and a 3 min walk to the beach. This is an older hotel but it was well kept and we had no complaints. A full hot breakfast every morning to start the day was great.

Just wanted to write a few lines to explain my experience at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn. This was by far an extremely wonderful experience. The staff are very helpful and location was fantastic. You can walk right out the back and in about 30 seconds you are on the beach! Building is older but rooms are kept very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Pool is great with lots of nice places to lounge and to sip on a few cocktails. Buffet breakfast was delicious with a very nice variety to choose from. Shout out to a wonderul lady named Rose (Food and Beverage Manager) who made our stay most enjoyable! Thanks for all the good advice Rose and we are still talking about your fabulous Nachos!! :)
