The hotel staff was horrible! Had to ask 3 times everyday to get our room cleaned . It literally got to the point where it was rediculous !! the location is not the best. this hotel really needs to get on top of their guest services.. They are truly lacking in that department. it should not take hours and hours... More

After our cruise, we avoided the crowds at the airport (8 cruise lines in port) by extending our stay at the B Ocean. On the site of a former Holiday Inn, it is within walking distance of the popular 'strip' but far enough away to be peaceful, because the Bonnet House historical gardens are to the south and the state...

This hotel was great. Clean and spacious room, comfortable beds, clean and nice bathroom. Our room was on 10th floor, with a beautiful seaview. We had dinner in the bistro, great food at reasonable prices. The staff was friendly, and especially the guys at the parking. Very service-minded, opening car doors, helping us with luggage and such. So worth the... More

We stayed there the first few days in March of 2012. We stayed 3 nights in room 917. The room was beautiful and very clean. The view of the ocean was beautiful, we had a large floor to ceiling window. We didn't find out that there was free coffee in the mornings until our second day. No coffee or tea... More

We stayed at B Ocean pre-cruise because bookit had a special "mystery" deal if you bid on the offer. We were very surprised that the bid turned out such a nice hotel. We arrived long before check in time, but were told we could store our luggage and use the facilities. We decided to take that offer up and grab... More

My fiancee and I had a very good experience at the B Ocean during our 3 night stay. We had a beautiful ocean view from our 5th floor room. The room was clean, bright and big enought for the 2 of us. The hotel is conveniently located near the Publix grocery store, convenience stores and a couple of bars/restaurants. The... More

This by far was my favourite stay on this years Florida adventure. Even though the Ocean is located across the highway the view is great. Only problem we had was we had to call to get sheets and pillows for the pull out couch. They had forgotten to put them in the closet, but it wasn't a big deal. The... More

Loved this place. Very well located across from the Ocean. Room spotless, great big window looking out to the Ocean, comfortable beds,. a big number of plush pillows. Had a very restful night prior to a cruise. Enjoyed a nice late lunch, freshly prepared and a big breakfast the next AM. Staff very friendly. Would stay again!
