We booked a room on our drive back home to Canada from Fort Lauderdale relying on the Best Western name. We ended up in room 106. As soon as we walked in, the musty, damp, smokey smell was very overpowering and very disgusting!
Best Western clearly has not inspected this hotel in quite some time - it appears to be the hotel that time has forgotten about! According to their general manager in a response to an earlier review, she said that they went through a $1.5 million dollar renovation in 2009. I would suggest that they spent the 1.5 million on all the wrong things!
We paid $102 for this room (including taxes)...I would suggested that it was $60 overpriced! This is nothing spectacular and very reminiscent of a motel room.
From cobwebs in the corner, a dead bug on the wall, and a spring in the mattress that kept jabbing me throughout the night, I would be hard pressed to stay at any Best Western knowing that this kind of place exists. A picture is worth a thousand words - come to your own conclusions!
