My wife and I were meeting another couple in Bradenton for a business trip. Called for a reservation after the other couple had made their reservation at Best Western Plus. With it being season in Florida there was not alot available. The General Manager Chris Sears got involved and he was able to get us accommodations at his hotel, at... More

Clean rooms,comfortable beds and fluffy towels await guests at this hotel. A slow internet connection and the typical musty smell when the AC was turned on (common in Florida) were the only bad things we found. A typical breakfast bar was available to guests.

Chris, the General manager treats this hotel like he owns it, making sure everything is perfect. He has a pet Egret that visits for breakfast which just enhances the the very nice breakfast spread. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. The decor is deco and very interesting! Would return when in the area!

Love staying at this beautiful hotel right in Bradenton. Disappointed in breakfast. Hot breakfast included cold boiled eggs, warm sausage patties and waffles. Hotel is top quality and breakfast used to be better when we were here two years ago.

This was by far more than I expected from a BW. Very modern, updated & clean. Nice free breakfast offering. Centrally located about 20 minutes from the beaches. Plenty of shopping & restaurants nearby. Stayed for 3 nights while visiting family nearby & will definitely book again!

We spent three nights in your hotel, and we found it all that it was cracked up to be. My only complaint was the wireless internet did not work in my room. The front desk was very helpful but could not get it to work so i just sat in the lobby and did my thing. Breakfast was good, room... More

I stayed here for one night with my kids as we were attending an event nearby. I was considering a few similarly rated hotels in the area but chose this one because I was able to get the best rate. I was pleasantly surprised at how new the hotel was. The lobby was very clean and modern and so were... More

I stayed here with my husband for a family visit and it was a great value (though my uncle got a significantly lower rate from a brochure at a rest stop). The room was a good size and all facilities/amenities were up to date. It was nice to have a microwave and a (spotless) mini fridge. There's also a coffee... More

We stayed here recently. It was clean and tidy. There was a restaurant right in front. The price was reasonable. The front desk seemed very busy.
