“Good location and cost-benefit OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

If you have a car and are shopping in Miami, that's a good deal. 5 min drive to north Miami beach and Bal Harbor, and 20 min drive to main attractions in Downtown, Aventura and South Beach and also the international airport. Even the Stadium and the Outlet malls are half an hour drive. Not so much to see and do in North Bay Village if you do not have or rented a car. Honest breakfast considering that most 3-star hotels in the US don't have such service.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in November as part of a fly/drive trip. This hotel was a great choice as it is very central, has free parking, good wholesome breakfast, also free and good wifi. We had a nice king bedded room on 5th floor with pool and water view which was also quiet as it was away from traffic noise. Highly recommended.

The Best Western Hotel chain is always very reliable regarding comfort. Breakfast was good as well as the location.The Pool area was relaxing, right at the bay. I used the gym a couple of times and it was a good experience overall. Enough to stay in shape during our holidays. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone, especially because the parking is free and it's close to Miami Beach. Although you definitely will need a car to get around but you avoid paying the expensive parking fees at Miami Beach.

I stayed at this property for a 3 day business trip to Miami. The property was clean. Access to and from my room was not bad. My room was spotless and everything in it was in perfect running order. Big flat screen TV, microwave, refrige., etc were al great. Shower was really hard to turn on. I let them know about that when I checked out. Would stay here again for sure.

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.

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.
