Nice place, good service, overall solid experience. Rooms are somewhat small. However, the extremely high ceiling made it feel larger than it was. Overall, it's exactly as the name would imply, "Best Western Plus." It more closely resembles a Hampton Inn. Breakfast is good. However not what you would get from other "Plus" style hotels (cook-your-own packaged oatmeal here vs.... More

We have stayed at this location twice while visiting FL. The first time it was not as bad, but it has gone down since then. The bed is bad! You can feel and hear the springs when you sit down on it. Backaches for us both in the mornings. The A/C was not working properly, for the 2 days we... More

We stayed 2 nights while visiting friends in Longboat Key. Hotel and rooms are very clean. Breakfast is pretty standard. Rooms are comfortable w/ fridge and microwave. Plenty of plugs, Very quiet as hotel is set back from the road behind a Cracker Barrel restaurant. Did not use pool or fitness center but business center w/ computer, printer, wifi was... More

What a GEM of a place! We stayed 4 nights. The location is perfect. Several restaurants and shopping nearby. It sits away from busy Cortez Road. Not a traffic sound can be heard. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable- nice linens and lots of pillows. Luxurious oversized bathroom. Coffee maker, fridge, microwave. Free breakfast... More

Everything about this hotel is wonderful. We picked this hotel the first time because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and they were all true. Chris Sears, the manager, is so friendly and helpful and Sarah at the front desk even remembered us from our stay last year where we had our wedding. Thought we might have to have it at... More

Three of us women went to Bradenton to see the area and relax. We stayed here and were NOT disappointed. It was very clean, quiet, and the front staff were excellent and so helpful. The people that cleaned the room were great, very clean, everything replaced that we used. A nice breakfast buffet starting at 6:30 am. Very well lit... More

Not knowing this area I booked this hotel for a quick pleasure trip with husband. I was very pleased with it! Very clean, excellent room, quiet and short trip to the beach! I definately would book again and recommend to anyone. Breakfast was great and in the evening this desk clerk put on fresh pot of coffe!

This hotel was booked for one night before a stay on Anna Maria island. It turned out to be a great choice for value, cleanliness and location. The room was large and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was modern and user friendly. The AC was a bit loud but not objectionable. The facility has a nice pool and the whole... More

Great Location, staff super helpful, rooms spotless, could not have asked for anything more. I wish our whole holiday could have been based out of this hotel. Wonderful, will definitely stay here again.

We first stayed at this hotel as it is very close to American friends we visit when over from the UK. The rooms are very nice with lovely beds. I love the fact that you can get hot coffee 24 hours a day (I hate messing around making it in my room). Breakfast has enough choice and is buffet type... More
