The hotel was visually appealing and the free breakfast was decent. When we entered the room it smelled musty, damp, and a bit moldy. It appeared to be clean and we were only staying for one night so we did not complain. Hopefully this is an unusual occurrence.

Usually have no problems with BW hotels but the beds in this room were soft and used, bathroom shower had little pressure and fixtures coming off/loose. Breakfest was average as was apple water instead of juice (had to go to 7eleven next door for real juice) and toasters out of date (after 5 min english muffin still white). The hotel... More

Not fancy but clean. Walls where a little thin, could hear voices next door. Staff was friendly, hot breakfast & coffee were very good. Reasonable rate, definitely a good value. Decor is a little dark and dated. Bed was comfortable. Lots of nearby restaurants and location was very convenient for us. Parking is Close by and neighborhood seems safe. We... More

The room was very spacious and very clean. Housekeeping did a great job. The breakfast was lackluster and tasted like it had been out way too long. Aside from that, I would go there again, however, I would eat breakfast somewhere else

Very good value hotel only about ten minutes to Anna Maria Island. In room fridge and microwave helps to make a longer stay more comfortable so you do not have to keep going out to restaurants to eat. Also the fact that coffee is on 24/7 in the lobby makes it easier to have a drink on the go. Stayed... More

For years we bypassed Best Western motels and elected to stay in other major national chains known for clean rooms and comfortable beds and great service. Previously the out of state Best Western motels we tried were not clean. Unfortunately, because of severe allergies windows are not often opened in my home and we rely on a/c. Recently a new...

Rooms were very clean, breakfast was nice (eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles, baked goods). Quiet and not super busy and right behind a cracker barrel! I stayed for only a couple days but with a fridge and microwave in room could stay longer :)
