“Expectacular stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2008

My wife and I just got back from a 4 day stay at the Best Western Atlantic at Miami Beach, the service was very nice, the room was also very nice but nothing spectacular, we did have a awsome view of the ocean and the lobby and pool area are excellent. The hotel is very clean and the staff extremley friendly. Check in was a breeze very knowligableand helpfull.

What we enjoyed the most was the location, right on the fantastic Miami Beach Boardwalk and the beautiful beach. Also the pool area and grounds were quite nice and we really had great weather while we were there.

The hotel restaurant was great, service is outstanding as well as the food "compliments to the chef & waiter". We did get a great rate for the off season and again we loved walking along the boardwalk. I would definetly stay there again.

  • Liked — Extremly friendly staff!
  • Disliked — Parking was 2 blocks away.. the walk to and back from the car

Interesting hotel. Has everything you want and need. Nice pool area and beach. The hotel is just set up a bit wierd. The path to the pool and beach leads you down the side of the hotel. Not ideal, kinda like they built it before they decided it would be a resort type place. Rooms were clean. Little dated. The bed was rock hard.

  • Liked — Being able to walk out to the beach.
  • Disliked — Bed was way to hard.

When me and my wife went for the first time in Miami in may, 2008, we had a great surprise with this hotel. The lobby is beautifull, the rooms were refurbished and are clean and seems a likenew condition. Only one thing bothered us: The guests left outside the room their finished meals ( the dirt dishes)and the room service only cleaned them on the next day.
The breakfast(US$ 20 pp) was great.
Nice and quiet place in Miami Beach

My wife and I stayed for one night at the Best Western in Miami.
We had a Beach View room on the 4th floor.
The room had a king size bed,Cable TV and fridge/freezer.
The bathroom was clean and had a hairdryer.
The views of Miami beach were spectacular especially watching the sunrise.
Also we was lucky to see dolphins swimming out to sea.
The hotel doesn't have its own car park on site. You have to park 2 blocks away in a managed car park which costed us $17 for the night. So be aware if staying for a long period of time wih a car, as this could get expensive.
Also breakfast is not included in cost.
We spent the evening at Bayside in downtown Miami, this is a marina area with lots of shops,restaurants and entertainment. Highly recommend going.

This was our 2nd visit to this hotel in less than a year and we had a great time! We always book an Ocean Front room and this year we had a corner suite! The bed is extremely comfortable! Room was very quiet, did not hear any noise from other units. Front desk staff are great. Yes, there was an elevator broken but it really didn't bother us. Don't mind getting exercise and using the stairs! This year they added a poolside bar and the drinks and service was great! The staff at this hotel are amazing! The only thing this year was they eliminated the valet parking and you now have to self park your car in a garage one block away. I would prefer if they would bring the valet parking back but will stay here again for sure in 2009!

The location of this hotel is great! As we like to be close to the action but not right in it!

Nice lobby with polite management and fast check-in. There are only two elevators and are very slow and noisy. Good size pool. Did not think much of he restaurant.
Rooms are clean and large. The bed (unlike other reviews) was confortable, but the decor is definetely out of style. Free wireless internet.
Good location in front of the beach. The hotel does not have free parking (12 dollars overnight) but you can park on the street (do not forget to feed the meters!).

  • Liked — Free internet
  • Disliked — Old decor, old elevators, noise.

We booked the hotel mainly because of the location and ocean view. The ocean view was very, very nice. The hotel itself has a lot of improvements needed. Before I forget - Carlos the Concierge was extremely kind and helpful and we very much appreciated everything he did for us.

Parking is not located on-site but is about 2 blocks away. It costs money each time you bring the car out so be prepared to stay out as long as possible to get your money's worth (not possible with how much is charged for the parking, however). Forget about parking on the street unless you're prepared to go out continuously to feed the meters!

We had very noisy neighbors and the front desk had to be called several times. They did respond quickly, however, and can't be blamed for the guests behaving badly but some better soundproofing would have been nice as we felt we were partying in the room with these individuals.

We were there for a week and a half and we had to call for towels/face cloths all but one or two of those days and that was because we hadn't gotten any at all!!! Once I called at 4 PM and was told that the laundry was being done and when I asked for additional face cloths, I was told they "were out." We also had to call for rolls of toilet paper! The bed linens were supposedly changed every other day but we know for a fact that that wasn't true. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom and after we took our showers, we felt that we needed another one because it was so humid inside the room. We called to complain about that and the person who came up to check on it, couldn't understand what we were asking about and we found out later that there are no exhaust fans in the bathrooms. The beds are very uncomfortable.

We had breakfast at the hotel a few mornings and there was a good selection but priced a bit high. We also had a few evening meals there and would have liked more selections. There are safes in the rooms and you are charged for them whether you use them or not.

I don't believe that we would recommend this hotel to anyone else.
