This hotel has the potential to be the premier destination and high-end hotel of choice - a potential that is severely under-tapped by the owners.
Awesome views and location. Mediocre facilities and rooms. Some say two stars are generous for this Agate Beach Best Western hotel. For hotels in this price range, this would be rated the lowest.
Awesome unbeatable location right on the beach (with walkable beach access).
Rooms with wall-to-wall glass windows with the view of the beach, the ocean and the lighthouse.
Great views handi-capped by room balconies with no furniture to sit in and enjoy the balcony.
Everything thing about the hotel was outdated... felt like they are still using the facilities last renovated a few decades ago. (rooms, wood-trim, furniture, door paints, iron rust on metal surfaces, partly working microwaves, stuffy and smelly hallway carpets, etc). Wood trim was falling apart, chipped, etc.
To be fair, they are going thru lot of construction work and carpet replacements. But they still charge the same rate as a fully normal hotel.
Front desk lady could not have been any less friendlier; it seemed she was banned from smiling ever. Last day, a different front desk lady showed up who was friendlier and cheerful.
Spa was not functioning.
The hotel owners are really missing out on a jewel of a location they have. Other competitive hotels in the area should take note and target BW's customers.
