This is truly a great little Best Western. I was pleasantly surprised by this property. It is very clean, super quiet at night, and it even has room service! I think the management and staff are doing a wonderful job here at keeping the place running smoothly and making sure their guests are taken care of. This property sits right next to the marina, so you get nice views of the boats and the nice grounds. There is a walking path behind the hotel, so you can take a nice morning run or walk and just enjoy the area. There are several restaurants nearby and it is close to the airport. The front desk staff is super helpful and very friendly. The ONLY thing that I would fix about this property is the A/C units in their rooms. I wanted to just have the fan running and I couldn't figure a way to do that as it is tied into their thermostat on the wall somehow with some crazy gizmo. Hard to explain, but I had never seen it done this way before in all my travels, just something that I would fix as I'm sure others would like to have the fan going at night as well. Also, as you are driving, the hotel has a smaller sign at about eye level as you are driving. I was actually looking for the large blue BW sign and almost drove right by it. Other than that, this place is awesome for being a smaller hotel and is conveniently located. Oh, and the room service food was actually quite good, another plus! Call the hotel for the best rates, they will take care of you.
