We always avoid Best Western hotels like the plague, but we decided to stay at this BW hotel in Fort Myers Beach for 2 nights. The hotel and staff (especially Coco, the talking parrot) were wonderful and it was a shame to leave so soon. The hotel is right on the beach, with a pool and lawn between the building and the white sands. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast fare was lovely. It seemed as though the hotel was used by coach parties, but as we were resident on the top floor, we heard no noise.
If there is a complaint, it is that the breakfasting area is too small for the number of guests and the kitchette suite we were allocated was also slightly small. It is very expensive, but in view of the location, it might be considered worth it.
Nevertheless, it is a wonderful hotel and can be recommended to anyone - even though it is a BW!

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room

The Best Western Fort Myers Beach was a wonderful experience for my wife and I. It has a beautiful location right on the beach. It is extremely clean with workers cleaning all day long. It is very quiet without the noises of a restaurant or bar. All the beach activities are right out there in front of the hotel including dolphins swimming by and many boats sailing by. It is an easy three block walk to Times Square and the bay areas with many restaurants to choose from. Coco, the parrot in the lobby was fun to listen to and the morning breakfast was just fine. Sitting in the lawn chairs in the shaded grassy area was very relaxing. We will go back again.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor with an excellent view of the beach.

We stayed for four nights in early January. The front of the property is lined with palm trees which had white lights--not sure if it was just for the holidays, but very attractive. Nice parking lot with lots of spaces. Lobby and breakfast area very clean and inviting. Staff at the front desk (24 hrs.) was very friendly and always willing to provide directions, restaurant suggestions, etc. The rooms have ceramic tile floors, comfortable beds, kitchenettes complete with full-size fridge, microwave, two-burner cooktop and sink, plus coffee maker and all the pots and pans. The bathroom is well-equipped and has lots of storage under the sink, which is hard to find in most hotels. The balconies are large with lovely views of the Gulf of Mexico. The pool is heated with lots of loungers and a nice grassy area adjacent with lots of chairs and a shuffleboard court. There are a couple of palapas and even a gas grill for guests. The lobby/breakfast area has floor to ceiling windows looking out to the beach and gulf. The beach is wide with beautiful white sand and suitable for long walks. The breakfast buffet had a nice variety of cereals, hard-boiled eggs, waffles (make your own), egg and sausage sandwiches, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices, coffee and tea. The seating area is small, but we ate outside one day and enjoyed the sunshine! This is a quiet location and it seems like everyone was in bed after 10 PM. We never heard any banging doors or loud voices at night or early in the morning. The A/C unit in the room is a bit noisy and cycles on and off throughout the night, so if you are a light sleeper, take your ear plugs. The maid service was prompt and friendly and we did not have to wait for our room upon check-in. Be sure to visit Coco the parrot in the lobby. He is just adorable and will talk his head off once you get him going! Our thanks to Rich at the front desk for all the friendly and helpful advice during our stay. This was one of the most relaxing beach vacations ever. Thanks to Best Western for another wonderful facility!

Room Tip: The rooms over the pool have a better view of the Gulf and sunset. The rooms over the garden area are lovely as well, but the palm trees area bit larger and may obstruct the view slightly.

From the start of our stay,we knew this property and the personnel ,the front desk clerks,the housekeeping staff,etc.were so polite,nice,had a sense of humor and had the best customer service we had ever had at any hotel.The room was a mini suite and had all new leather furnitureincluding a leather couch,a mini kitchen,2 King beds,an easy chair,and all ceramic tiled floor including the balcony.We overlooked the beach,beautiful palm trees.We spent alot of time viewing the scenery.The continental breakfast had so much variety that we did not tire of it even after 8 nights.The maid was there in a timely fashion every day and was efficient ,polite and went above and beyond the call of duty.The pool was very warm which we just loved.I can not say enough good things about the hotel and employees.If you saw a hotel employee on the grounds,they always said Hello asked you how your day was,and smiled.They even stopped what they were doing to open the doors for us.We left a note for the maid telling her we would do the dishes,she went ahead and did them anyway.She mopped the floor every other day ,swept everyday,wiped down kitchen counters,coffee table etc..Claritte was our maid,and although all of the front desk clerks were outgoing ,Lacey was our favorite.She had checked us in,I happened to say to her that she would be sick of us after 8 nights,and she quickly replied that she knew the 2 of us would be alot of fun to have as guests.She made us feel at home while our room was being finished,and told us to relax in the lobby with cooffe or tea overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.When our room was ready,she warned us to be careful as the floor was drying from being mopped.Another front desk clerk was ther when we came from the pool.I happened to say that the pool water was really Wet.He laughed his head off which was nice as some people think my humor is dry.I can not say enough good things about this hotel.It has been the best Best Western we have ever been to as well as the best hotel of any brand that we have been to.They take care of your every need and really make you feel welcome.The room was comfortable.the breakfast was plenty so we never needed a very big lunch,we hated to leave.

We stayed here for a week over the new year period, it was a fantastic location and the beach was amazing, the view from our room was unbelievable, it was good to wake up evry morning and see the ocean and on a couple of ocasions we saw dolphins and for us Brits that was just amazing, the staff were very friendly and so helpfull. Breakfast time was also so much fun, they had a waffle making machine and enjoyed making our own waffle's. Its also a good location as the hotel is about a 5 minute walk from shops and restaraunts, we would highly recomend this hotel and we will return again for sure, the rooms are very clean and have a kitchen area with microwave and fridge, there is also a laundry room there which we found very usefull.
