Thank you Chris for all you do with the hotel,, keep up the great work your doing !!

the hotel location is great. Beaches are 8 or 9 miles away. Many restaurants and grocery shops nearby. The manager seemed very pet friendly (we had no pet though). Also there is not much noise from the outside as the hotel is not directly adjacent to the main road. The room was clean and refreshed every day.

On the less good side the pool is quite small as is the breakfast area. The breakfast items selection not really great and the staff not really friendly (though not unfriendly). The beds in our room (210) had probably seen better days. Same was true for the air conditioning system. Quite loud. There was also a light smell in the room.

We definitely had a better experience at the Best Western Bradenton Hotel & Suites the same week. Good breakfast items selection. Larger swimming pool nicely located in the back of the hotel (lots of green, trees, birds, etc.. ;-). Overall cleaner. Friendly staff. Beds were also very comfortable. Certainly not as close from the beaches (ca 15 miles) but very close to the I-75.

Should we go back to Bradenton we would definitely consider the Best Western Plus hotel & suites rather the the Manatee hotel.

Was pleasantly surprised by the quality and numerous nice features of the new design of this better Best Western property. All the features of a top chain like Hyatt, at a lower cost. Other than the lack of luxurious pool, and water activities, and in hotel eating outlets, quality of room and amenities was on a par. Only downside was that it was on a commercial corridor and too far from beach and other attractions. But the value for quick stay is hard to beat.

We had a great stay at this hotel with my family. The hotel is fairly new, nicely decorated, modern style. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Wish pool area was bigger for the guests, but we were heading to the beach so it really didn't matter at the time. The breakfast was great & the staff never closed it down while there was people in the breakfast area. The man in the front desk was very helpful, friendly. Overall we had a great stay & will return soon.

I spent one night here in conjunction with a trip to Anna Maria Island. It is set back off the road and very quiet. I had a standard King room which lived up to the Best Western standards. It had a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and plenty of lamps with sockets for charging items. Everything was clean and in working order. The bed was very comfortable. The internet was excellent. The full breakfast was very nice and what you would expect from Best Western. My only complaint is there was no safe. At check in the receptionist was very friendly and told me about a special AAA member rate I did not know about. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant next door and numerous other eating places in the area. The swimming pool seemed small but I did not use it after a trip to the beach.
