We stayed 4 nights for a Harley Owners Group rally. The staff was excellent. Each person we met from the front desk to the bartenders to the room service staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel is not the newest of hotels and some of the equipment, like the A/C was old and the pillows could have been softer. However, the view from our balcony at sunset more than made up for it. The price was good, and the rooms were quiet, even with a motorcycle group staying there!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were booked in a no view room and upon check-in the clerk upgraded us to an ocean view balcony room because I joined the rewards club! The staff was very friendly and accommodating.The lobby was clean and nicely decorated. Our 5th floor room was cheery and clean with a beautiful sunset view from the balcony. The beds were very comfortable. There was a lounge inside and a tiki bar out by the pool. While there was no restaurant, there were plenty in the area. Some were even within walking distance. The pool was clean although it didn't seem to be heated as stated on their website and the beach was right there! Beautiful white sand and crystal clear ocean water. I have stayed in several beachfront hotels along the gulf coast and this is the best value by far. I have paid twice as much for less accommodating and uglier hotels.

Room Tip: The oceanfront balcony rooms offer a beautiful view of the coastline

I had the most wonderful time. The manager and her staff are outstanding. I am going to stay there next year. The hotel was so very clean. The staff were helpful in every thing we needed. The breakfast hot and on time every morning. The bartenders made you have a good time. Friendly and funny. Every one in her staff worked very hard those five days and are a great asset to your corp. Thank all of you for caring for all of us! Harley Owners Group!!!!!

Room Tip: Gulf view!!!

This six story hotel has great views of the Gulf of Mexico from your own balcony. We watched the sun rise and set from our room. The outdoor pool was great and there is even an outside and inside bar.

I had stayed at this hotel in Oct of 2012 and it was clean and fairly well maintained, but it is obviously not maintained now. The toilet was broken, the shower could not be turned off, and the door to the balcony would not latch. Tile in the hallways and the laundry were all broken and my daughter tripped on them a couple of times. Then, on my last night there was a large group of people in the bar that were being extremely loud. After calling the front desk several times (no answer) to complain, the person on duty went out and talked to them. They were quiet for a few minutes, but that started yelling about the poor people that couldn't go to sleep etc. Obviously, the profit from the drinks is more important than the guests. I will never go to another Best Western, no matter the location. To put a family with a 10 year old over the bar, is just plain stupid.
