Best Western On The Bay Inn & Marina
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Really hard to review this one. To put it simple, it felt like a glorified motel. The rooms were in a different building to the main reception and breakfast area. Just the thought that anyone can come up to my door at any time was a bit daunting.

However, the room was comfortable though a bit dated. TV reception wasn't good either. A key operated safe in the room was a nice touch.

The main area of the hotel was nice. Open and roomy with a good breakfast. Not sure about her name but the lady who made the pancakes while I stayed was lovely ... very helpful and friendly.

Parking is free which is a nice thing as most poeple who stay here will have a car as this isn'y walking distance from anything major. The main maimi sites/beaches are about a 15min drive or 40min bus ride.

For someone who is into the motel layout, this is a nice place but if that isn't your thing, then avoid!!

Clean and comfortable hotel. If you have a car this wouldn't be a bad place to stay. My only disappointment that the onsite restaurant was closed for repairs and the TV reception was poor. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable. I had a bayfront room with balcony. Plenty of parking which was free.

I am over in Miami from Australia and had a falling out with a friend and came in quite distraught and Carrie and Kristal the ladies on the front desk were amazing - they were considerate and so helpful I cant express my gratitude to them both - and the rooms were clean and comfortable - it is central the bus stops so easy to get around and if you need anything the front desk are more than helpful. I cannot fault this hotel in any way and would definitely recommend it to anyone planning on coming to Miami. They also help with tours which were amazing. I cant put into words how great this hotel is. Cheers

Room Tip: I have only seen my room but they are clean and have what you need - being fridge, microwave and b...

We booked this hotel based on decent price and good reviews. We enjoyed our stay here, we got a nice room on the third floor with a balcony. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would book a room with them again if we ever came back to Miami.

Went to visit daughter and grand kids. This hotel was less than a half mile away. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Upgraded to bay front room. Room was clean and smelt good. I was pleasantly surprised. Most definitely was stay here again.
