“Nice accomodations newer property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was a nice property to stay at and the rooms were nice and breakfast buffet very nice. In life to me it all boils down to people and the manager here Chris Sears was the kind of person you wish you had as a neighbor as he was very personable, accomodatng and just a really nice guy that went the extra yard for you too. Great Stay.

A bit tired on the outside, the hotels rooms themselves looked recently upgraded and were lovely. Hard to find because located behind Cracker Barrel restaurant on Cortez. Lots of shopping and restaurants along Cortez. About 10 minutes to beach. Got great seniors rate.

This was our second time staying here. Rooms are nicely appointed and well maintained. Lots of free parking. Personalized service - they did not have peanut butter at breakfast as they did last year - but Dan gave me his own personal jar of peanut butter every morning when he saw me. Close to restaurants, beaches, Sarasota and convention centre.

The rooms in this Best Western are beautiful and comfortable. The hotel is, I believe, 5 years old but it is in really good shape. It looks new. The rooms are quiet providing for a good night's sleep. The staff is quite friendly. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

This was a great hotel and one of the better ones i have stayed at. The staff from Chris on down was really friendly. The room was great. The only issue I had was that the internet was really slow for some reason. But other than that it was an enjoyable stay.

A note for travelers - the hotel is behind the cracker barrel. Easy to pass hotel and not realize it. Did it twice myself...

We stayed 8 nights in this hotel.The management(Chris Sears) really cares about the customer. We arrived to a spotless room.The breakfast was decent with cold cereals, donuts, boiled eggs, egg substitute, sausage, biscuits, oranges and bananas, make your own waffles, coffee, juice, etc.We had two problems, which were attended to promptly and with a smile. The t.v. sound was bad and the t.v. was promptly replaced with another.Also, after several days the air conditioner quit working. That was also promptly attended to. The hotel is also very reasonably priced. There is an egret that makes it's home at the pond in the back and sometimes comes into the lobby. The only negative is that we could sometimes hear loud talking and the t.v. from another room so the wall insulation was somewhat lacking.

My whole family group stayed here for 3 to 5 days for our dad's funeral weekend. Chris, the manager, was terrific getting all the rooms we needed, even though the hotel was jammed for MLK holiday, too. For two of those nights we had 9 rooms, and the service provided to us was very compassionate and professional! Great prices for very nice rooms, well maintained, and offering a thorough breakfast buffet. We all thought it was a wonderful place, conveniently located, with restaurants a walk away. I'd stay there any time I was in Bradenton. I recommend the Best Western on Cortez Rd. to anyone.

Room Tip: I really loved the King bedroom with sitting area and a full, separate kitchen. Roomy and very comf...
