Upon walking into the room after a late night flight, the lamps were lit welcoming us "home". We had a full kitchen, a living room, bathroom and bedroom. After a wonderful nights sleep, we went to breakfast, staff members made sure the area was clean and that food was available. Eggs, sausage, french toast, donuts, cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, cereal, toast, bagels, yogurt, various juices, coffee and hot chocolate awaited us each morning. Beach towels and lawn chairs are available for use, which help those of us who fly in. The beach is clean with a lifeguard station nearby. The most beautiful blue/green water I have ever seen connected to white sands. Maintenance staff were continually cleaning. I was impressed that one of them was actually sweeping off the lawn chairs outside of each room, each morning and sweeping all sidewalks in preparion for each new day. The pools are cleaned each day and well maintained. One day we left a fork and knife in our sink only to come back and have it washed. After the room was cleaned, you can walk in and smell bleach and other cleaning chemicals, a pleasant smell for me as I am a "germaphobe". Staff members were friendly and helpful at all times. The head housekeeper would come into the breakfast every morning and shout out "good morning" and then speak to you as if she knew you all your life. What a way to start a day!!! Just lifts your spirits seeing her smile. One day, housekeeping was in our room and she said she needed to vaccuum, I told her it wasn't necessary, but nothing doing, she wanted to make sure that our room was perfect. And so it was . . . . .
We reserved a 3 night stay and went to Miami Beach for a conference, only to check out of that hotel early (the Miami Beach Resort and Spa - extremely dissapointed there), and returned to the Best Western for an additional 2 nights. The front desk staff was wonderful in helping to meet our needs and welcome us back. My children said it felt like we were going back home. There is a Publix grocery, CVS pharmacy and a handful of restaurants within walking distance.
Given the opportunity I would definitely come back here. I would encourage everyone to try this location. DO NOT OVERLOOK IT it based on some of the prior reviews. We stayed in rooms 407 and 429. Stepping out the door you have a view of the ocean and can sit outside your door and enjoy peace and tranquility. This place is a gem!!!
Thanks BEST WESTERN and thanks to your wonderful staff for making our stay truly memorable.
