3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stay at BW regularly and this BW was just below par. They advertise with recently renovated rooms which leaves me 2 questions: 1. How recent is recent? 2. Who did the renovations? The rooms just looked tired, the airco was beyond loud, the matrasses were comfy but the box spring part of the bed made this horrific sound every... More

Room clean but dated to older Best Westerns. Bathroom & shower in a very small area. Floor can be slippery there. No bath mat. Our room had 2 smallish double beds. They were on box springs with a very thick mattress. It made it interesting climbing in bed. Friends in next room did not have that problem. Staff was pleasant.... More

Stayed here for one night during our checkout dives. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Can walk next door to Crackers for supper. Breakfast was fresh and hot. Plenty of parking for all size vehicles. There is a dive shop located on site that offers Manatee tours. Within walking distance to more food and shops.

Stayed for one night and it was excellent. Very clean and extremely comfortable bed. Right on the water & a manatee sanctuary area. Good restaurant, Crackers, next door. Even had a drink outdoors listening to some live reggae music. Overall, we were quite happy!

Great location for diving and snorkel trips with the manatees. Dive shop right on site and the property is waterfront (working waterfront docks). The hotel is recently renovated it appears. Room was well furnished and fresh. Firm beds. Not overly big or small room. It was missing a refrigerator though. Staff was friendly and the free breakfast buffet was extensive... More

This hotel rates amongst the highest. I've stayed at top notch hotels and this is one of them. Very convenient, clean, and at a price that is very competitive. I highly recommend staying there if you are ever in the area.

We were a party of eight friends and family renting several rooms and arriving from different places. I found this hotel to be a great experience. There was plenty of things to keep you occupied at the hotel, pool, hot tub, picnic area, waterfront lounge. It was close to walk to a few restaurants and shops. We enjoyed that it... More
