Best Western Plus University Inn
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Boca Raton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Could use an upgrade. They could upgrade the rooms and amenities. Breakfast to great with limited space when hotel is full. No lunch or dinner available in the immediate area. The Staff are trying to help you when you can find one that speaks English. The hotel is easy to find off the major highways.

this was a good place to stay in Boca, was there on business so not much time for pleasure. Room was big and had all ameneties needed. There were rooms right off the pool if you were there for pleasure instead, that would have been of the rooms i would have chosen.

Room was very well appointed, however, there was a very unpleasant odor which was between old cigarette smoke and a musty smell. The pool was large however, as it was early evening when we were using the pool, it was very very dark in the pool area as there were no lights to light the area. The breakfast food was very good; however, not enough tables and seats for hotel guests.

Thank you for staying with us. I apologize for the odor in your room. We had de-odorize the room prior to your arrival as the previous guest had intentionally smoked in the non-smoking rooms. We apologize we didn’t get the smell out 100% prior to your check in.

Was visiting FAU for a sporting event and wanted to be close. This is a low cost option ($134/night with AAA discount). Hallways are musty, sink in room was barely a trickle, housekeeping came at 3:30 PM one day, towel rack fell off the wall and was clearly broken. Those are negatives. A big positive is that the air conditioning was very quiet, and I slept well because of that. Breakfast was fine - I especially liked that they had two 4-slice toasters, so no waiting to get some toast. I didn't sample the other fare. The breakfast room attendant is very conscientious and keeps it very clean, straightens chairs, etc. Pool area looked very nice, though we did not use it. Clientele seemed to be mostly retirees.
Hint for driving in this area - avoid Glades Rd like the plague. Stoplights are poorly timed, signals back up easily. To get to FAU from the hotel, use 20th Street, which takes you right into the heart of campus with no traffic. To go south on I-95, from the hotel, go north to Yamato and get on I-95 at that ramp instead of Glades Rd. It seems like you are going out of the way, but it is much faster. Overall review - this was a mixed bag. You get what you pay for at this Best Western, but it isn't horrible by any stretch.

This property has been recently renovated (maybe 5 years ago?). It is in a fantastic location, close to Mizner, 95, and the beach.

I would recommend if staying for a short weekend on a budget or visiting friends/family in the area.

Jen did a goodjob when I checked in. Lots of snowbird were very demanding of her. She greeted me with a smile. Laundry room had 2 washers and 2 dryers! Breakfast was a very nice presentation. We have stayed there before and will stay there again.

Thanks for coming back. I hope you noticed the nice upgrades to the hotel which have occurred during the last few months. Most of the rooms received new furniture, the bathrooms have been updated, and there is a brand new lobby.

We can’t wait to have you back.

everything was great, except the smoking is allowed right infront of the rooms, which made the whole building unplaesant. Breakfat buffet was great. Staff is friendly. Location is great, littlover a mile from beach
