Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn
Ranked #18 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 19, 2010

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights after a cruise. I chose this hotel mainly because it's reasonably priced and close to the beach. From the outside the hotel looks outdated and in need of a 'lick of paint' the reception area is small and shabby. The reception staff were unfriendly and I became a little anxious as to what our room would be like. The room was very clean and modern and we had no problems with it. Breakfast was ok plenty of fresh fruit, bagels, toast etc. There was ham and what looked like sausage burgers but we gave them a miss. The hotel is minutes away from the beach and the water taxi pickup (behind Days Inn) worth a trip. Restaurants, bars etc are approx 10 minutes walk away. If we returned to Fort Lauderdale I think I would look for another hotel.

We stayed at the Oceanside Best Western for one evening prior to taking a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. Close in proxamity to the airport and cruise port. Also 2 minute walk to the beach.
Room was clean and comfortable but dated. Great for our purpose. Pool area nice.
Breakfast was sufficient. Probably wouldn't choose this location for more than a couple of nights but for a place to lay down our head for the night it was perfect.

I stayed at this hotel with my wife twice: for a night before our Caribbean cruise and for four nights after the cruise. The location of this hotel is excellent. On one hand it will take only 3 minutes walking to the beach and on the other hand it takes 5-7 minutes by cab to the cruise ship. The hotel itself is not too big, but has all necessary amenities including swimming pool. Rooms are spacios and neat, well furnished. Wireless internet works well. A/C is sometimes smelly. Breakfast is ok but not spectacular, rather limited choice of healthy food. This hotel is a good balance between reasonable price, excellent location and fair "three stars" service and rooms.

I stayed here in September, 2010. For what I wanted - the hotel was excellent, I only needed to sleep there as I was out and about all day touring, etc. The rooms [especially the bed was very comfortable], staff + security were great, I would stay here again - no worries at all.

We spent two days before and after our cruise at this Best Western. Overall a good spot to see the sights of Fort Lauderdale and is situated next to the beach.. Close to Water Taxi (which is $15 for the day and takes you to Galleria Mall and Las Olas area and 12 other stops)and the city bus stop- which is $4 for an all day pass. Hotel is older but clean and staff were very good and helpful. Breakfast had a fair assortment and better then most. The Marriott is just behind the hotel and a good place for a Starbucks.
We had dinner twice at Bubba Gumps just about a 1/2 mile down the street. Very good....excellent fish and chips.
This Best western is a good value and I would recommend it...............

We knew from other reviews what was good and bad about this hotel and for the price paid (around USD 100 a night) we were really satisfied. To summarize the hotel is a good choice if:

- you have a car (there are two levels of inexpensive self parking at the hotel)
- you love the beach (wide, lovely one at a minute walk)
- you want a clean room with a fridge you can fill up with your own stuff, a reasonable complimentary breakfast and free wifi Internet.

and and bad choice if:
- you don't have a car (it is far from the night, restaurant and shopping action + public transportation is sparse)
- the hotel swimming pool is really important to you (it is pretty small and space around is tight)
- you wan't a large room, a great view or luxury furniture (choose the more expensive neighbouring Sheraton or Marriot)

Plus one more tip: if you want to splurge one night head for the 3030 restaurant at the next door Marriot for terrific seafood.

Researched a long time before picking this hotel. Glad I did. Really glad we did not rent a car. We did not need one! Unless your have issues with walking you can get any place you need to go. Water taxi, bus, taxi, or just walk. Great beach around back of hotel through parking lot. Staff was great. Loved the breakfast buffet!! Rooms were a little small but clean and comfortable. Beds and pillows were nice. Pool was nice but a little chilly even though they say it's heated. The bar and bar food was great. Front desk great. The other hotel guest were great. Met alot of nice people. Stayed on the pool side which was nice. I would only ask for a room not next to the steps because of people stomping up and down early in the morning. Will not even look for another place next time we are in Lauderdale. Best Western Oceanside we will be back!
