“Nice for a quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stayed here 1 night before we flew home after a visit to Ft. Myers. The hotel is very clean and in working order.... but it's old... think 1960s and 1970s. The room itself was comfortable and the bed was firm, although the linens were a little thin. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave and seem to be in good condition. By old, I mean the layout... halls with low ceilings and ice makers in the hall. The elevators were slow. Good parking and right across the street from the beach. Eating options aren't particularly close except for the Marriott and Sheraton next door.

Morning breakfast was good as far as free breakfasts go... waffles, biscuits and gravy, cereal and fruit. I think there were some eggs too. All eaten on disposable dishes. Staff was nice and helpful.

Overall, I liked it. It's not the Marriott but then again, we used points and our rate was low.

Room Tip: We were in the back next to the elevator on the 5th floor... we had a balcony and we could see the w...

We recently stayed 3 nights at Best Western Oceanside before going on a cruise from Fort Lauderdale. We picked Cocoa Beach as our stopover because we didn't want to travel too far on our first night. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was really good to start the day. As we checked in we were told about a meet and greet the next day, which was a get together of guests and staff for an hour with free beer, wine and hot and cold nibbles. We thought this an excellent gesture and really enjoyed it. The hotel is in an excellent position right next to the pier.

Room Tip: We asked for a sea view and thought it was worth the extra paid. The only negative for me was that t...

We would stay again if going on a cruise. Hotel is clean but outdated. Breakfast is good to get you started in the morning. Staff is nice and everyone was helpful except Pauline at the front desk, she needs to smile more and be more helpful. She seemed to be not very caring and bored with her job.

Staying here for the second time (first time was Oct 2011) and everything is as good as it was then: convenient pool, great location (3 min walk to the beach), breakfast waaay improved (it used to be just a variety of break 1.5 yrs ago, now they have bacon, cheese, cutlets, fruits, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, corn flakes), comfortable beds, large parking lot ($10/night though). Suggestions for improvements? Just one thing: change the whole reception team, they are rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming.

We had a great time the bartender was fun, Free breakfast, the rooms were clean and the pool was nice. It is going to be remodeled soon. Walking distance to stores, bars. There is a trolley for 50 cents each way that takes you to the malls. Taxi is average 15 to 20 dollars from the airport. The beach is about 2 blocks away.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor it was quiet

We chose this Best Western facility because of our past experiences with this chain and were not dissappointed. Although there were new guests arriving every day our rooms were ready when we checked in. The rooms were large, comfortable & clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful, from the front desk to the service staff. The location is great - near to shops, restaurants, the beach & airport.
The breakfast buffet had ample choices and the dining area was comfortable although sometimes there was a wait to be seated. We enjoyed our stay.

Staff was very accomodating, helpful and friendly. We arrived early, our room was ready, and we were invited for the breakfast. The front desk was helpful with answering questions about public transportation and directions.
The breakfast was excellent--a great variety and items were kept full. Our room was comfortable, very clean, and quiet (even being beside the ice machine and elevator). The traffic from the street was a little loud at rush hour times. The bed was comfortable, the television had a good variety of stations, the room had a mini refrigerator, microwave, and safe, the complimentary tolietries were nice (Bath and Body Works), and there were lots of towels. There was a little deck to walk out on, but not too much to see from it.
The pool was heated and clean, and the front desk has pool towels (as many as you need). The bar had very reasonable prices for food ($7 for a sandwhich) and drinks ($5 for a mixed drink) until 11 PM, and it was relaxing just to hang out there in the evenings.
The location was just a short walk to the beach, a 10 minute walk to bars/restaurants, and right on the bus line (#40)/Sun Trolley Line. We took a cab to/from the airport (about $20), we rode the Sun Trolley (50 cents one way or $2 for a day pass, runs 10 AM to 6:30 PM) to get our bearings along the beach front and down Las Olas Blvd. We also took the city bus ($1.75 per trip or $4 all day or $16 for a week pass--buy tickets on the bus) as the #40 went past the hotel (and just a 10 minute ride to the Harbor Place with lots of grocery stores, restaurants and shops), and we changed to the #11 to ride down to the shops/restaurants/activities on Las Olas Blvd.The beach was clean, and had picnic tables and trees for shade, as well as lifeguards on duty.
We recommend eating at Southport Raw Bar on Cordova Street (from the hotel, walk across the street and take the bus across the bridge, at the shopping plazas, get off on Cordova Street where the Winn Dixie grocery store is, make a right on Cordova, and it's just a few blocks on the right). The food was excellent, but the fish tacos and Old Bay shrimp were the best! The bill was about $40 for two adults. We sat outside on the waterfront. Just aroud the corner from there is Lady Helen Fishing Charters, were we did a 6 hour fiishing trip with Captain Jeff that was awesome! At the beach front, just around the corner from the Elbo Room, we at at Beach Pizza, and had a great slice of cheese pizza and a soda for $4.50.
