Best Western On The Bay Inn & Marina
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Good value for Miami in February.
Clean & tidy.
Decent en suite room
Very helpful front of house staff.
Not keen on using plastic plates for breakfast
The hotel would benefit from some upgrading here and there but overall I thought it was good value for money.
If you want 5* then pay more elsewhere.

We were excited to find a room on the bay for $200 a night. Beautiful view of the city skyline and sunset. The front desk person was friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions at check-in. The room was clean and large enough for two. The bed was comfortable. The property restaurant "Shuckers" was closed, which we understood. What we probably should have complained about was the grinding, etc noise from demolishing the concrete dock that started at 7 am all three mornings. We paid more for the bay view and should have been told of the noise 3 floors directly under our balcony so we could have moved or possibly received a discount. We left the hotel early every day, but the noise would have been a problem if we had wanted to sleep in. Elevator needs service and AC.

Room Tip: Bay view rooms are great if there is no remodeling going on.

Stayed at this hotel for second year in a row and it continues to get and look old and worn. Room was ok with fast internet and comfortable bed, but the hallways, elevator & cart were dirty. Hotel is in desperate need of a facelift and cleaning.

This hotel is more like a still yet to be remodelled motel. We appreciated the helpful staff but were very leery about sleeping in the beds because it looked "sketchy". Having said that it was comfortable and there were no problems though we would not stay there again. On our back from our cruise we booked at the Best Western near the the airport, on Flagler and would certainly stay there again.

Hotel Best Western Plus On The Bay Inn and Marina is convenient located in North Bay Village. It is not for from Miami Beach, South Beach and there is bus stop which moves You to the center of Miami Beach. Nice lobby, friendly staff. Good wifi. But Rooms for Four people are to small. Breakfast is poor. And very quickly over. The lift in our building stinks.

Room Tip: Please take the suite one.

As a freelance photographer, I really appreciated staying at the Best Western On the Bay Inn & Marina. It is a great location for sunrise and sunset shots. I was able to walk across the drawbridge to the local marina for some great sunrise shots across the Biscayne Bay, then shoot the sunset from the balcony of my room.

Very bare bones but that is what you would expect for a Best Western. Our room was clean. The bathroom looked recently updated. Nothing fancy, but everything worked and did the job. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful on a late evening check in.
