“Very good location and very comfortable stay at BW Plus”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

We've recently stayed in Fort Myers Beach and we've choosen BW Plus which was a nice find with a good service overall.
We had room 517 which was on the top floor with direct Oceanview and a full kitchen. It was great to see the beach and the sun in the monring and evening. The size of the room was rather small but ok for 2 adults. The other good thing about the hotel is that it offers free parking and direct access to the beach. The Pier, shops and restaurants are easily accessible by foot (only 5 minutes).

The downside of the hotel is that the breakfast room is tiny (and not clean) and the choice is too little I think. The choice could be upgraded. But the Donuts are really good (from Dunkin Donuts). So for a drink and a donuts it's okay.

Next time we'll visit Fort Myers Beach, we'll surely choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room to avoid Plam Trees

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Dick and Coco where always fun to talk to. We had one of the family suites which was huge and beautiful. The hotel is very clean and so well kept. We never had to pay for breakfast because of the excellent continental breakfast with fresh waffles, donuts and juices. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Take the family suite if you can it's a double room with a double balcony. All rooms are beach f...

Stayed here in June 2011. Had good service, was close to action, and great beach. really enjoyed stay, it was a perfect location and very relaxing vacation. There was a trolley stop right out front for farther travel and the beach was nice and private. Room was clean and good size, and great view of water. Breakfast was typical free breakfast, but can easily cook up your own in the room also. Nice picnic area and pool location too. Planning to return with my own family this spring.

My family really likes this property for a variety of reasons. Best reason is location. Fort Myers Beach is a nice family beach. It is sometimes very very crowded. The main bridge that goes over to the beach can become extremely backed up. If you have to get on and off the island multiple times you need to be near this bridge. There is only one road that travels from the south to north tips of the beach. It can make you wish you were on a highway in LA due to backups. The less you have to travel on this road the better. The Best Western is just over the bridge and an easy drive to the right. The hotel is very clean. The staff is friendly. The pool was very warm and enjoyable for the kids. We will definitely return when we revisit Fort Myers because it is a nice hotel with a great location. The reasons I only give it 3 circles are the rooms are a little cramped and does not come near the luxury or ambiance of the other hotels I have reviewed so far. I think the whole room would fit it the hallway of our unit at The Siesta Key Hyatt. It is not luxurious. It is a basic clean hotel that is fun for kids on a very good beach. Breakfast bar has the usual cereals, donuts, fruits and waffles which were all just fine. To sum up our visit, for a simple place to stay on Fort Myers Beach, the Best Western is pretty good.

We chose this resort because the cancellation policy was 4 pm the day of arrival. The room was rather small but very nice, recently remodeled. No hot tub but a nice pool, good breakfast, and right on the beach, which was not as crowded as the public beaches.

The Hotel is located on the beach and so is 50 others one. The hotel was really not that nice.
There was three major issues we had with the hotel all because the hotel is older and not well maintained. The weekend front deck was great the front manager during the week was terrible.
We had a ANT PROBLEM.in the room. The room comes with a kitchen area we put some cookies and cereal in the cabinets in the evening and by morning they were both covered in ants, when reported to the front desk we were told it does happen and they would spray chemicals to get rid of them, no refund or money for the lost food items. Also the room has a 2 burner stove and only the small burner worked, they were soppose to repair it but it never got fixed while we were there. The pool broke down the second day we were there and turned green, it was never fixed during the next 4 days there, the front deck said it was safe to swim in the green water but no one did. The front deck did not refund any money or compensate us in way for these three items. The hotel is just that well maintained. The breakfast is a step up above Motel 6 they ran out of coffee and fruit twice, almost everything is single packaged items very few items are fresh, just be for warned. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere else, we will not be ever going back here. All the hotels on this beach have a great location, the beach cant be beat, all the other hotel have clear pools and nice maintained exteriors. If you can get this hotel for a deal its ok but you probably be disappointed with the service and maintenance at this hotel.

Room Tip: Pick a diffferant hotel

Nice units with kitchen area, and balcony looking at the Gulf. Friendly front desk, and not far
from the action. Would stay here again!
