This was not the case with Best Western Suagr Sands Inn and Suites! The breakfast was great, and the service (especially by Christina!) was AWESOME. In addition the... More

We booked a queen suite at this hotel for a recent girls trip to Florida. The hotel was immaculate! The room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety. We booked through Groupon and got a great rate.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. The majority of the wedding party stayed there. I was blown away at the price. Perfect location for shopping and dining. 2 blocks from the beach. The breakfast was excellent. Such a variety of food and fresh and area was very clean. Definitely recommend.

We stopped at the Best Western Sugar Sands because it was a bit off the beaten path and traffic wasn't as heavy. It was only about 2 blocks from the main drag and a mile before the real heavy traffic of town begin, so it was convenient yet much quieter and less hectic. We weren't disappointed in the motel.
