“Great Find in Ft. Myers Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We loved our stay at Best Western in Ft. Myers. There was a full kitchen and a wonderful balcony overlooking the Gulf. Great location as we were only a short walk away from Times Square and the 7-11. The beds are very comfortable and they give you a nice assortment of shampoos, lotions, etc. The staff is very friendly and the continental breakfast was basic but good.
There is a small playground area on site which is nice if you have little ones. The pool was very nice and they also had a shuffleboard court which the kids all loved. We have stayed at many hotels in the Ft. Myers Beach area and this is one we will be visiting again!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are oceanfront

Booked trip on Travelocity and somehow ended up with a BW hotel in Ft. Myers when intending to stay at the BW Plus at Ft. Myers Beach. This was our second trip to this hotel since we enjoyed our stay there so much last year. Finding out that a mistake was made, Rich, who mans the front desk, went out of his way to help fix the problem. Thanks to him, our vacation was saved! The hotel is very clean, well maintained, and only a short walk to shops and restaurants of Ft. Myers Beach. We love the views from the hotel since it is directly on the beach and have never been disappointed when opening the curtains every morning to a fantastic sight of water, sun, and sand.

Room Tip: All rooms are Gulf of Mexico views with balconies.

We go every Christmas to FMB to enjoy memories dating back to childhood. The BW Beach Resort is still being maintained to a high standard. The continental breakfast now includes Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches which compliment; waffles, toast, bagels, cereal, donuts and muffins. For us that was only the only change from year to year. Keep in mind there are no resort fees and honestly the other hotels on beach aren't offering anything more than the BWBR to require the additional $18 a day.
What I like best is the relaxed unpretenious feeling that the hotel provides to guests. I don't want to dress up or worry about wearing my jewelry at the pool or while playing shuffleboard. (that isn't the case at Pink Shell or Diamond Head)
You are close enough to town to walk which is a plus. No other hotel can offer grassy area and palm trees beach side, large balconies to watch the sunset.
We will go back and enjoy ourselves again....

Room Tip: Mini suites have two king beds and sleeper sofa. Pet friendly.

Thanks for the great review. Not so sure about those resort fees, I guess you charge those if you do not want your guests to come back which is NOT the case at this property. We pride ourselves in our repeat guests that come back year after year and unpretentious relaxation is what we are all about.

I've been to this hotel 4 years in a row and every time it's awesome! The breakfast is very good even though there are not enough tables. But we can eat outside and enjoying the beautiful landscapes! The pool is very hot and the kids really appreciate it! The rooms are very clean and the service is perfect. And the hotel is pet friendly! We will come back next year for sure!

We have always wanted to visit the area, and search extensively on TripAdvisor to select the right hotel for our 3 day stay. While not a perfect stay, the value was good compared to other hotels in the area, so we decided to stay here rather than on Sanibel or Captiva Island. While the main purpose was to visit Sanibel, we thought that the hotels on Ft. Myers beach were more reasonably prices and we could walk to many restaurants. The good…the rooms were clean and the small kitchenette was handy. The location was superb, right smack on beautiful Ft. Myer Beach. A ‘carb-fest’ breakfast was included, as well as fresh fruit. I really enjoyed eating a Florida Grapefruit each morning. We enjoyed CoCo the talking parrot in the lobby, who greeted everyone coming to breakfast with a “Hello”. The negatives were that there is a lack of places to sit for breakfast in the lobby, and the room’s kitchenette loud refrigerator bothered our sleep so much the first night, that we turned it off the next two nights before going to sleep. Bottom line…good value, and a good location.

Thank you for the review and we are happy that you enjoyed our property and the Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel. We are in the early planning stages of extending the back walk way into a outdoor sitting area for breakfast. Thanks again for staying with us.

We stayed here for 5 days in a 2 king suite, It is in a great North end location ON the beach and walking distance to Time Square. Our 3 and 4 year olds loved Coco the parrot in the lobby.

Pro's: Location, very clean, large rooms, comfy beds and pillows, beautiful gulf view from balcony, nicely landscaped, continental breakfast included, pool clean, staff very nice and helpful.

Con's: wall air conditioning unit very loud, very large room with kitchen but no place for a family of 4 to sit and eat together(there is enough space for a small table). Not enough seating in lobby/breakfast area.

We were in Rm 217(non smoking) which is a corner unit, at some point one of the employess began fixing his motorcycle in the parking lot right below our room and repeatedly revved the engine. When we left the room to leave the hotel he was blocking access to the parking lot so we had to go around him (obviously this is not an everyday occurance). The other issue with this corner room is that the house cleaning staff take their smoke breaks on this side of the hotel so the smoke was coming up onto our balcony, as non smokers with small children this was less than ideal.

Overall we a had great experience and we would probably stay here again but request not to be on the same corner of the hotel.
