We reserved and paid for an ocean-view king size bed but we had small beds and the could see the ocean if looked out over the rail and past the hotel next door, you could see the ocean. We had to pay for parking in a dungeon with spaces large enough to fit one entire mini cooper. But on one day I had to park outside because the other cars take up two spaces of the very limited parking. I had to pay for a safe, that did not work, but it was on the bill even if you don't (or can't) use it. The staff was nice, but none of them went the extra-mile to be helpful.

The hotel's location is good, close to shopping and right on the beach, though not many restaurant options unless you try restaurants at other hotels. Hotel is in need for a major upgrade. Parking is very limited, and you need to pay for it. So if you don't plan to travel outside Miami Beach a car is not necessary. You can catch a taxi on the street. Coffe/tea maker in room and vending machines are on every floor.Tip: get an ocean front room, the view is beautiful!

We stayed for one night. Room was clean.But it was a bad night. Air conditioner made room extremely cold and could not be adjusted (probably broken). There was no warm cover on a bed, only light one and it made it very difficult to get a good night sleep. We made coffee in a room at the morning because we needed to be at airport and buffet only opens at 7 am. We could not buy water in the hotel - wending machine was out of order. But the worst part was parking - it was not available. We had hard time to find parking in unfamiliar city and only had some of the luggage because of it. So if you have a car prepare your toothbrush to take with you and everything else needed and good luck looking for the parking. We found one not that close for $8 a night. It took additional time from only one night in Miami. Boardwalk is in repair and we were told by front desk that we can walk to Lincoln street from the hotel. Believe me it was very far and some parts you need to walk on a sand. Best Western was not a great choice but still place to sleep for one night in a busy Miami.

This hotel is terrible. In spite of a flurry of workmen in the lobby changing light bulbs from scaffolding when we arrived on 28 February in the middle of the afternoon, the grounds and facilities are in terrible shape. This place needs much more than the cosmetic tweaks that have been applied. The staff was friendly, but ineffective. While the standard king room was spacious, the room featured spots on the carpet and a cracked sink. Since we were informed when checking in that $50 per day would be applied to our credit card for any damage in the room, I called down to the front desk as soon as I noticed it to report the sink. The walls are very thin and if someone raises a voice even a little bit in the next room, it carries right through. The day after we checked in, we went to the exercise room. One of the elliptical machines emitted a constant squeak that sounded like a dying rabbit whenever it was used. Friendly front desk personnel assured me that everyone knew about it and they were waiting for a part to arrive. And oh btw, the Holiday Inn down the street will let you use its fitness room if you present yourself at its front desk. Why keep that a secret? Why not inquire during check in if we planned on using the exercise room and advise us then? A large banner on the beach, in front of lovely beach chaises, says “Welcome Best Western”, but when you go out, you learn that this area of the beach belongs to a private company that has nothing to do with the hotel and it will cost you $40 for two people to have a chair, a towel each and one beach umbrella. The pool area at the hotel does not have enough seating; the deck is in bad shape and needs repair—many cracks and large chipping patches. We left the hotel on 2 March at 11 am; when we returned at 4 pm, the room was still not made up. When I called to request housekeeping, I was informed, politely, that 1) the housekeeping staff only works until 5 pm, and 2) the hotel was sold out last night. After another call, someone showed up at 4:40 and took all the towels. Then she informed me that there were no more towels to give me AND she could not do anything else except call down to request that more be brought to us because she leaves at 5 pm. She did not even clean the bathroom—just took the towels.

We had a wonderful room facing the ocean with a large wrap around balcony for $212 + tax on 1/31. This was the best price we could find for an ocean front room and we were not disappointed. There was a beautiful ocean view, especially at sunrise. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and clean. It was so nice it may have been recently remodeled. We enjoyed walking on the boardwalk between the ocean and the hotels. The beach is also very nice although we only had time to dip our toes. Their parking was limited, and full, but there is a ramp in the next block for the same price. Our only complaint is that there were no towels by the pool when we were there first thing in the morning. We will stay here again if we are in the area.

Room Tip: Book an ocean front room. It is worth the extra cost.

We stayed in this hotel over the weekend of 2/22/14 and while we were out of our room by the beach we were robbed of all our personal stuff (including passport, wallet, car keys, cell phone, cash, credit card, drivers license), and only hotel staff has access to all rooms at all times, but when we informed them about it, they didn't try to help us, so we called police and now waiting for results, hope they gonna catch these bastards asap
