Best Western On The Bay Inn & Marina
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This hotel had clean and spacious rooms and plenty of free parking. That's a hat trick in my book. The employees are super friendly and the pool area is very nice. The restaurant they are renovating looks like it will be awesome when it reopens. We only made it to the free breakfast on our last day because breakfast is over at 9:00 AM and I am not getting up early on vacation. That was too bad because I was very impressed by the breakfast and what they served but unfortunately because they end it so early, the place is packed and has long lines and not enough seating. It was still very good. I know others have said the neighborhood was not great; that's garbage. It's a great location. Very safe area with tremendous access to everything you need, except the beach. This is not a beach front hotel and if that is what you want this is not the right hotel. I go to Miami to visit family and the pool is just fine for me. This was the first time I ever stayed at a Best Western and I have to tell you, it won't be the last. Oh yeah, I forgot the free wifi, coffee make, and fridge. What else do you need.

Room Tip: Our room was called a city view room. Looked out over a parking lot but yes you can see the bay from...

My family and I have been staying at this Great Hotel on Biscayne Bay for years!!!
The location is perfect! Out of the Hustle and Bustle, but close enough to get to South Beach or Sunny Isles Beach in 15 minutes. The Front Desk Staff is very accommodating and friendly.
We cant wait for the newly remodeled Shuckers Restaurant to open back up in a couple of weeks.
Great Food and Bayside dining until Midnight or so!! Rooms are good, just wish they had a better selection of cable channels. But your not in the room that much, so I guess its OK!! You can fish right out back if you like as well. Great Breakfast in the mornings with lots of selections for everyone. You are just 5-10 minutes from the Beach and great restaurants!! Shuttle to the Airport is available also!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Ground Level in the Main building by the pool.

Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff. Hotel is right on the water with pretty views. Great value, nice pool, fitness center and tasty breakfast. I would stay again when we are visiting friends in the Miami area.

I love this place. No Miami resort fees, no Miami parking fees, clean room nice staff, quite. I come on business often and I dislike the fees in the Miami Beach area. I never go the beach... I am here to work! $35. Daily beach fees at many hotels at the Beach aren't fun! I found my new home away from home in Miami that is reasonable and convenient for visitors who don't want to be at the beach?

Room Tip: Exit i95 at 79/80 street if coming from the west Take 71 if coming from the beach It is confusing...

Best location and value around. For us this location is close to relatives less than 1 mile so we are able to spend quality time with family and not have long distances to get back to room to relax and sleep. Quite and very clean rooms. Staff wonderful and you can even get a great breakfast for free. Kids loved the pool too.

Stayed here for one night in Jan. 2014 before going on a cruise. Booked thru hotwire and got a great rate. Too bad that the restaurant is still renovated, otherwise, no bad things to say. Average breakfast, but was included in the price so no complaints there. Used the small fitness room, thumbs up for that too. Parking was also easy and free. Nice, clean. probably renovated room. AC worked great too. Would recommend if using a car and if it´s not a must to stay at the beach. 15minute drive to SoBe, depending on trafic. Would recommmend.

I personally think this is the #1 hotel in North Bay Village. i got a free upgraded to the room with bay view at the time when i checked in at the hotel. Their stuffs are friendly, and show their cares to the customers. Since the hotel is locate next to a major road in that area, you may hear the noises from the cars all the time depends where is your room located.
However, the location is a bit far away from Downtown Miami but it closed to Miami Beach and South Beach. It is about 20 minutes driving distance from the hotel to Downtown without traffics. If you are planning to visit the beaches in Miami, this hotel will be one of your choices; if you are planning to visit Downtown Miami is your major purpose, this is not your choices at all. You have to suffering a lot of traffic when you are driving down on the road to Downtown. Sometime the bridge may blocked for like an hour due to the ships, and you have to drive through the City of Miami Beach to get into Downtown. You will have to spend extra 20 minutes on your trip.
