I initially had my stay scheduled at the "other" Best Western in the Bradenton area; however, after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, I quickly switched to the BW Plus. I really liked this property. It is just off Hwy 75 and surrounded by lots of fast food restaurants. Starbucks and Walmart (which is either open until 12Midnite or all night, bc we stopped there on our way over to the hotel) are it i's backdoor and within walking distance. My daughter and I were in town for 2-nights for a conference that was about 15 minutes away, so this was actually great. We checked in VERY late, so no delays there. 3-floors, non-smoking hotel. We were on the 3rd floor and it was quiet. They have a hot breakfast (get there early) and free wi-fi, which is nice. While the property is older, the rooms have been renovated and are really nice. They come with a refrig and microwave, which is great if you are out and just want to come back to the room and heat up your food. Bedding was nice, alittle firm, but that is okay. Checkout was fine, also. Only negatives, were the rooms needed more and brighter lighting and more outlets, especially in the bathroom. And the hallways were REALLY hot, not good in Florida in late July. When I was checking out I mentioned it to the front desk and was told they were aware there was a problem and they were working on it. However, in the big picture, this is a really nice property and I would definitely stay there again.
