The staff made my stay exceptionally pleasant. They went over and beyond to make me comfortable. Room was nice, breakfast, not so much. Hotel location and ammeneities were wonderful. Beach is beautiful, pool well maintained and grounds well kept

This hotel was great! We went as an anniversary trip just the two of us but lots of people had kids and they seemed to have a great time too. We will bring our kids next time.
The best part? Beach-front waitress brought our drinks directly to us in the lounge chairs and umbrellas the hotel provided. The tiki bar off the pool was great too. I hate that we missed the band at night , though. We were exhausted but we heard they were great.
Wonderful stay! Will be back next year!

A lovely hotel, extremely well-kept property, with a pleasant, friendly, and outgoing staff. The lobby and public areas were clean, fresh, and lovely. The room was spacious, the bed was great, and the bathroom extremely clean. The balcony and view was wonderful, and although the ocean roars, when the balcony door is shut, it is very quiet. Terrific beach services too. I had read a few negative reviews here back before we booked and I can't imagine where they were staying, because I found actually NOTHING that I could make a negative comment about except that our vacation was over far too soon (oh yeah, and there was some idiot shooting fireworks on the beach at 2 a.m. one morning, but hey, idiots are hard to completely eliminate). If I had to find one complaint, it would be that their boardwalk to the beach could be a little longer (as are the neighboring properties), making an easier walk for those of us with defective knee joints, but I wouldn't let that stop me from staying there again or keep me from recommending it to anyone else. I give it 5 stars all the way.

Room Tip: We loved the beach view balcony, which is also directly above the pool. We were on the fourth floor...

our stay Best Western went well, I'd book a room again in the near future, the beach contractor that set up beach chairs & umbrella's did an outstanding job, not to mention the young lady that did an awesome job bring us bar beverages, the tiki bar and pool were a great perk.

I couldn't have asked for a better hotel for our anniversary weekend trip. We arrived late, and upon entering the lobby, exhausted and travel worn, I was greeted by name by the clerk. The hotel is so absolutely adorable. It has a 60's beachy vibe and is so unique. Every single staff member was so helpful and nice, yet not fake about it.. There was a "beach butler" who came took orders on the beach. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to families as well. They had a ton of activities directed toward children.

This hotel is a dream come true. Between the free breakfast and being able to order lunch from the poolside cabana, we could have stayed on the premises the entire time and had everything we needed. From the front desk to the cabana to housekeeping, the service was incredible. It was more like a tiny resort, but at a hotel price, which is unbeatable for everything you get.

The beachfront is gorgeous and clean. Beach attendance is included in your stay, so you have two beach chairs and an umbrella at your disposal from 9am-5pm. Then, Wed.-Fri. (or Sat.), a server is there to bring your food and drink orders to you while you enjoy the beach. They offer frozen and mixed drinks as well as snacks like popcorn (which is free) and hotdogs (which are the bomb), that you can either pay cash for or charge to your room. The hotel also has a martini bar that opens everyday at 4pm. Oh, and the pool is heated.

The rooms are clean, and each one includes a mini fridge, a microwave, and a coffee-maker. I didn't use the coffee-maker once, since fresh-brewed coffee is available in the lobby during breakfast hours (6:30-9:30am). The mattress is a thick pillow-top, and she sheets are super soft.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We're already planning to return in the Fall.

Room Tip: The bed pillows are small, so you may want to bring one of your own.
