“Great Location Perfect Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

The hotel is very clean and updated. Right on the beach. Gorgeous views. Relaxing. Very close to shops and restaurants. Beautiful view of the sunset from our room or the beach.The rooms are very nice with full kitchen.Paper at your door every morning. Supply extra towels and blankets. Breakfast had lots of choice everything refilled as needed.
Things that we didn't like were no air the the elevators, Service people should use stairs separate elevator. It was awkward when you were surrounded by staff with cleaning buckets and dirty towels, It wold have been nice if theaters was a Tiki Bar on the beach or in pool area. There should also been a cabana for towel service at the pool.
Overall great place I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Great place to stay for beach time.

This hotel never disappoints. Sooo relaxing and beautiful. Clean comfortable rooms. Great umbrella chairs on the beach. A must rent, so worth it. Great free breakfast with so many selections. Short walk to center of town and shopping. So much to do in the area. Like to shop check out Sanibel Island Periwinkle Way. You can't go wrong.

Room Tip: All rooms ocean front but over pool less trees better view of ocean.

We stayed at BW+ on December. The room was great for 4 people. The ocean views were amazing. We could walk to the beach. The breakfast was good. The location was good. The Internet connection was bad, especially at night.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is easy when 72 out of 75 rooms face the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Our Internet connection problem has been resolved.

We spent 6 nights here in 2012 and returned for 7 nights this year - brought along our daughter and her family. I am calling next week to book for 2014! The rooms are spotless, and housekeeping kept them that way throughout our stay. The rooms are soundproof, the beds and pillows are wonderful and we always sleep well. The staff is always pleasant and helpful, the breakfast offers variety. Even though we did not have much sun due to TS Andrea, we enjoyed our stay. I have stayed in many hotels both in the US and Europe and this is the best one yet! Keep up the good work!!!

What a great hotel! The view is fantastic, location is awesome, hotel was so clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful! The breakfast was delicious and free! Our room had a king size bed, a balcony with a view of the ocean and the pool, and a kitchenette that came in handy. We absolutely loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Get the ocean view!!

Just returned from a 6 night stay - our first time staying on the gulf side of FL and at Best Western Plus.It was quiet and intimate but just a short walk to the restaurants/bars and the Times Square section. Our room was a suite on the 5th floor w/a separate bedroom from the living, dining and kitchenette area which was very spacious and had two entrances to the balcony. It was spotless and the mattresses (we had 2 dbl. beds) were very comfortable w/all white linens like at a spa. Bathroom looked newly renovated and came equipped w/a hairdryer. Deb kept our room clean and well equipped the whole time we were there and she was always friendly and responsive to any of our requests.

Our trip was booked last minute and I am glad I did not read earlier negative reviews. We did not find any of those things while we were there. Can't understand anyone complaining about the breakfasts. There was so much to choose from each day and many were healthy choices (yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal ). Never had a problem w/the seating either. They did just complete more eating space on an outdoor patio w/an awning installed while we were there. There were also Adirondack chairs where you could sit and have coffee and a muffin or doughnut while facing the beach and Gulf. There was free parking and Internet which was a big plus.

People complained about the one beach towel rule but I took 2 towels every day since they had plenty and nobody ever said anything about it. We were a little surprised about the fee for the chairs and umbrellas but they were worth it and you had them til 5:00.

I agree with some others who said there should be no smoking around the pool because the gulf breezes blow it in your face. We noticed a lot of people smoked which is unusual these days.

The cleaning and grounds staff greeted us w/smiles all the time BUT the front desk staff rarely looked at or spoke to us. The one exception was Lacey who was so friendly all the time. That being said the staff did promptly respond to anything we asked them to do so we can't complain about them.

There were vending machines which were very reasonably priced & a laundry room which we heard was very clean. My husband did wish they had a fitness center but other than that we thought the place was really nice and exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: We liked the 5th floor for the view and we were over the pool and didn't think it was loud since...

We have stayed here 4 times before and each time it gets better. The friendliness of the staff is exceptional from the front desk, to housekeeping, maintenance staff, breakfast staff and all! The entire place is spotless and the pool and grounds well maintained. The rooms are very sound proof with comfortable beds and lots of pillows. The kitchenette is great for making lunch, and keeping some snacks and beverages on hand.
There were more choices for breakfast foods this time and enough to satisfy any guest.
The hotel is located at the quiet end of the beach but within walking distance to the stores and a huge variety of restaurants.
I always enjoy Coco the talking parrot and love when he laughs and meows. We will be back again as it is our favorite place to stay on Fort Myers beach.
