“This Hotel is simply ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2008

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a "Girls Weekend". We booked a mini suite that had 2 queen beds, a small kitchenette and living room combination. The room was clean but without any xtras. The bathrooms in this hotel are extremely small and have the sink outside of the bathroom. The few amenities we had were mostly broken. The iron didn't work, the toaster didn't work properly and one of the burners on our little stove was popped up and we were afraid to use it. The balcony didn't have screening nor an outlet or fan but on the bright side, all the balconies faced the ocean.
The staff was friendly enough and they offer a continental breakfast in the lobby which was mostly sweet things but they did have fresh apples, oranges and bananas. Also, the location was within walking distance of the times square area and that is a plus.
I missed not having a refreshment stand near the pool where you can have a drink and some nibbles for lunch. That might have made things a little nicer for us. I guess I would rate this hotel about average.

we have been visiting SW Florida since 1993 and you cannot find a more relaxing and safe place to visit than the BW Beach resort.

The staff, Kevin, Dave & Jeff, not forgetting COCO are always at hand. A tranquil relaxed resort no pressure, good weather and Jed to serve up the DONUTS, We will always remember the friendly relaxed atmosphere of this beach hotel.

You enter the reception look out at the beach and say to your self fantastic idle, can we really be in Florida, don't tell anybody else we need to preserve this for US.

Your first visit will not be your last!!

Stayed at the Best Western Beach Resort for 4 nights from 7th January 2008. Myself and my husband really enjoyed our stay, the rooms were clean and in good condition nice big king size bed. All hotel staff very helpful and pleasant, breakfast was a traditional US continental which we enjoyed sitting under the palms watching the dolphins go by. Sunsets were amazing, beach kept very clean, safe swimming. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Great cheap store (think it was a 7/11) up the street for drinks and nibbles. Ask for a top floor room as lower/middle floor rooms are partially obscured by palm trees this was are only very small fault. We will be sure to visit again.

Great view! The down side was the breakfast could have been a little better...lots of sweets. Glad I'm not a diabetic! The room was ok, but sorta old. Noise wasn't too bad. The beach was beautiful, and the owners were pleasent. Only other downer was the brown ocean water. Didn't swim in the ocean, but the pool was great. All in all, it was ok for the price.

Just returned from 5 nites at the Best Western Beach Resort. Everything is alittle dated but for the price it can't be beat. The location is fabulous. Most everything you could want is within walking distance. This is our 2nd year staying and are already planning next years trip.

The hotel is out dated, the outside of the building looked a bit rundown. The elevator going up was hot and smelled musty, and the carpet was brown and old. The tiled floor in our room was sandy and dirty. The bathroom was small, and the room decor was definitley out dated. However, the view overlooking the beach was gorgeous.

I stayed at the Best Western Beach Resort with my 2 daughters from July 23 - August 3. This was not our first visit and hopefully it will not be our last.

Front Desk: I really like the whole Front Desk staff. They were all very friendly and helpful. Scott took great care of us at check in and check out and while making our reservation. He also quickly took care of a small problem we had with our room key during our stay. I have also previously dealt with Kevin and found him to be great. Jeff has always been very very kind and helpful. During a previous stay he provided a much needed health care provider phone number for my sick daughter. I can't imagine this hotel without him. I would take any member of the front desk staff and hire them for my business.

Breakfast: An older gentleman takes pride in keeping the breakfast area well stocked and clean. He also suggested a very reasonable but good restaurant when asked. Breakfast is juice, coffee, tea, fruit, muffins and donuts. We really enjoyed eating our breakfast outside under the palm trees.

Landscaping: We love it!! Everything is very well maintained.

Pool: Clean and warm and overlooks the beach.

Rooms: We kept the fridge well stocked and ate on our balcony often. Yes the rooms are a little small, especially the bathrooms, but we feel the balcony overlooking the ocean makes up for it.

Coco: My daughters enjoyed talking with Coco every day.

Local attractions: We drove to the public pool apprx. 2 miles down the island. It had a fun slide and interactive pool. We also drove to Sanibel, Captiva, and Lovers Key. All 3 were very close, interesting and convenient. We also went to Flea Masters Flea Market and the Fort Myers skatium (the ice rink). We also walked up the beach to shops and restaurants almost every day.

When my life gets stressful this is one of the first places I like to go because it is very peaceful. I actually could use a little Best Western Beach Resort right now.
