Housekeeping works in the background and we often take them for granted and don't notice them. Well, I did notice and appreciated the good job they did during our stay. Alza was especially nice and helpful. She did not hesitate to help with the ice machine and was always polite and friendly as she did her rounds. Job well done.

Had a great time thanks to the staff at Best Western. Rooms were comfortable, view was gorgeous and food was super. The Hotel had easy access to beach. There was plenty of parking close to the hotel which made for ease in unloading your vehicle. Rates were very reasonable. Will recommend to family and friends!

Overall the location of the hotel is great, the room is nice but could be cleaner, the cleaning staff should wear hair nets at all times to prevent their hairs from being left behind in the bathroom and on the clean towels, the hotel restaurant should provide an allergy menu for people with shellfish allergies so we can at least...

Hadn't been to a beach in years. Last weekend before school started was very busy but not early on a Sunday in the Bible Belt (Thank you holy rollers) easily found parking just steps away for only $5. Had a great time with the kids. Front Desk was very helpful.
