“Was pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. Good view of the bay. Front desk was great with buses, places close by to eat and recommending tours. Pool was really great and breakfast was good. It is a good stopover motel. For a Best Western Plus we expected something more modern. It really needs to be updated. It was a good stay.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with friends

Really friendly helpful staff at Best Western Bay and Marina in Miami, but too far out of the city and it is really a motel not a hotel. Property is a little on the old side and things are beginning to break down. Door lock caused us lots of hassle on last day when leaving to catch a plan home. We had a real rush to get to the airport which is not the best way to start an overnight flight to England. Staff did all they could to sort the problem but it leaves a bad impression of the hotel.

From the moment we arrived at the airport the staff at Best Western were excellent....
We called the hotel and the van was immediately despatched - good job too as it was raining very heavily!!
The room was clean and well maintained and the hot breakfast was better that I expected - quality coffee and tea, juices, waffles, pastries, sausages, eggs, yoghurt - I was expecting the normal 'continental' so I was very pleasantly surprised....
Excellent views and clean pool, free parking, great price.

Need I say more?

The room and pool were clean. The continental breakfast was great. Plenty of food. Good location near beach. It was a fun time for the whole family. This is our second time staying at this hotel. The first time was just as pleasant. We went to a Pelican rehabilitation center that was only a few minutes away.

Really hard to review this one. To put it simple, it felt like a glorified motel. The rooms were in a different building to the main reception and breakfast area. Just the thought that anyone can come up to my door at any time was a bit daunting.

However, the room was comfortable though a bit dated. TV reception wasn't good either. A key operated safe in the room was a nice touch.

The main area of the hotel was nice. Open and roomy with a good breakfast. Not sure about her name but the lady who made the pancakes while I stayed was lovely ... very helpful and friendly.

Parking is free which is a nice thing as most poeple who stay here will have a car as this isn'y walking distance from anything major. The main maimi sites/beaches are about a 15min drive or 40min bus ride.

For someone who is into the motel layout, this is a nice place but if that isn't your thing, then avoid!!

Clean and comfortable hotel. If you have a car this wouldn't be a bad place to stay. My only disappointment that the onsite restaurant was closed for repairs and the TV reception was poor. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable. I had a bayfront room with balcony. Plenty of parking which was free.

I am over in Miami from Australia and had a falling out with a friend and came in quite distraught and Carrie and Kristal the ladies on the front desk were amazing - they were considerate and so helpful I cant express my gratitude to them both - and the rooms were clean and comfortable - it is central the bus stops so easy to get around and if you need anything the front desk are more than helpful. I cannot fault this hotel in any way and would definitely recommend it to anyone planning on coming to Miami. They also help with tours which were amazing. I cant put into words how great this hotel is. Cheers
