“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2007

My family (hubby, kids 6 & 12) just got back from an excellent vacation - Fort Myers Beach's weather was great and so was the hotel! Rooms were very clean, Dick at the front desk was absolutely wonderful - even charged my laptop behind the front desk, so I could still enjoy being out in the waves. We all loved Coco and his antics. The pool is in a great location right there on the beach. Towel service is great, water toy fun is great, and the hotel is only a five minute walk from the little shops and restaurants. They have an amazing continental breakfast. This place was perfect for our family vacation and we will come back again!

Very clean room. Nice balcony with a great view. The room was what they call a mini suit that has a kitchen with a full size fridge. You are on the beach (private), with watersport rentals right there. If you bring your own umbrella and chairs you can save $23 a day rental fee. The main strip is in walking distance, and the pier. Ft Myers beach is a great town with lots to do. Would recomend.

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western for two nights and had a great time. Our room was clean and the kitchenette had a full size refrigerator and microwave oven. The only complaint I have is that our view of the beach was partially blocked by the hotel's palm trees. Our room was on the 3rd floor, so I recommend staying on the 5th or 6th floor if you want to be able to enjoy the view.

Breakfast was exactly what I would expect of a continental breakfast: bagels, donuts, danishes, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee, and tea. There were wave runner and kayak rentals on the beach side of the hotel, and the beach was never too crowded.

The Best Western is within a short walking distance to the Times Square area which has souvenir shops and restaurants, there is also a pier that you can go fishing from.

  • Liked — Everything is within walking distance.

it is a nice place the back side(beach side) is so much better then the front. Rooms are clean they have tile floors so the sand can get to you a bit but over all clean great staff. Coco the bird is a lot of fun. The pool is nice the beach is great within walking distance of downtown area so leave the car at the best western and take the beach.Only bad thing is the elevator is very very slow and there is no change maker by the washer dryer but good place and they take dogs!

Just recently stayed at BW with my husband and 4 year old. I think our standards were a little to high. The resort was nice for the common areas. The beach was clean and well maintained, and the pool was warm and very relaxing over-looking the beach. The front dest was blah, not overly friendly but not nasty. I guess "just doing their job". Breakfast was minimal with no good seating area to eat at (especially with a small child that would do best at a table and chairs). We have two complaints about the resort. One is that re-claimed water is used when washing off at the show or foot wash when you leave the beach. We weren't sure what was worse.. the smell of the reclaimed water on us or just being plain salty and sandy from the beach. (One of the foot washes on the opposite side of the pool wasn't even working). The other complaint we have (which is a big one to us) is that the room was not clean. We wore our shoes at all times in the room because the floor was filthy. When we first got there my little one kicked her shoes off and wanted to run around and play but I notice that the bottom of her feet quickly turned black. Then my husband and I checked our feet to find they were black as well. We were so freaked out that we called the front desk to ask if the floors were mopped. They told us that they are mopped all the time and that they would make sure that the maid mopped it the next morning. Needless to say that we ended up wearing our shoes the whole time because we were tired of the black feet thing. We even brought our shoes into the bathroom so we can step into them after we got out of the shower. Yes, it was that bad. Also, we never seemed to have clean towels. The towels they left for us every day were old and stained. We were better off using our beach towels that we brought with us from home. Also, when we got there there were only sheets and that aweful bedsread on the beds. We had to get blankets from the front desk because we've learned over the years to never use the bedspreads at hotels as they are usually not washed between guests. (dont know BW's policy on that though). Now we may sound like germaphobes but we've stayed at resorts before where you could eat off of the floor and the towels were so nice that we wanted to buy them from the hotel and take them home. Like I said earlier, the common areas were nice but the room was horrible. Just to prove that we are not crazy, we decided to go check out the Pink Shell down the road when we checked out of BW. My husband actually got a key from them to see a room. Well, that is where we will be staying the next time we go to Fort Myers Beach. It is more expensive, but worth every penny for a clean room for my family, a restaurant on the premises, and just a beautiful resort with tons of amenitiies.

We just returned from a 5 day, 4 night stay at this hotel. Great location. I do not know if I would spent the exact amount of money for one of the other hotels, unless you are wanting a bar and jacuzzi at the place you stay. Great family place. It was just my husband and myself, but we have Grandchildren, and this would be great place to stay. We had a room on the 4th floor, great view!!! First floor room would not have the view. Room was big with the kitchenette we have. Not much to choose on the breakfast items. The only elavorate they had was very slow. Can walk to the shops and restaurants. Be sure to try the S.O.B.(Smoking Oyster Bar) good food.
