View from the restaurant windows was spectacular... what a surprise to get same view from room balcony... great! River drops down to the ocean right by the hotel... super view of the harbor, logging activities and fishing as well. Wanted to try the river tours, but our time was too short.... next time.
Great service by youthful college kids... very attentive to us older folks... very enjoyable!
Ease of entry from the highway was valuable as well... so many gree trees in the picture window views.... very pleasant!

Room Tip: didn't try the fitness center and no kids this trip

This past weekend we were travelling around Oregon, and believed we had booked a room at the Florence Best Western. In fact we had booked a room at the Coos Bay Best Western. It was our mistake, but there we were at 6:00pm, in Florence, with a tired child, and hours of driving behind us. We did not want to drive down to Coos Bay, and we did not want to lose our booking fee.

Jacob and Carrie were on duty at the Florence Best Western, and they let us use their computer, and made a call on our behalf, and were able to assist us in cancelling the Coos Bay booking without a penalty, and giving us an excellent room at the Florence Best Western.

It was a very stressful moment for us. We were very tired, and disappointed that we were potentially facing financial penalties and considerable inconvenience for our mistake, after having planned and executed this elaborate trip. Jacob and Carrie were calm and helpful, and helped us set things right, quickly and professionally. This situation could have ruined the day, and it did not. We are very thankful for this.

This room was really nice. The front door and balcony were on opposite sides of the building, so we enjoyed fresh air flowing through. The room was very quiet and well laid out. It was very clean. We enjoyed to pool, and the complimentary breakfast was very nice.

Dear Sasquatch2013:

Thank you so much for the 5 star review on TripAdvisor. We are so pleased that Jacob and Carrie were able to help you resolve a stressful situation. The Oregon Coast can be very busy during the summer and I am so pleased that they were able to get you a room and that you enjoyed your stay with us. Jacob and Carrie also thank you for mentioning them on TripAdvisor.

I stayed from 8/19-8/23, room 350. A number of staff members made my experience above average. The gal at the front desk whom I spoke with on the phone before arriving on 8/19 and upgraded me to a Water View King was so nice and helpful, I regret that I don't have her name. Upon arrival, Carrie at the front desk checked me in and she is so genuinely kind and happy, not to mention efficient! Each time I saw her throughout my stay she had a big smile and always asked about my day. Megan and Stacey in the restaurant also took excellent care of me. I actually ate there 3 nights. The food was good, and these ladies couldn't have been more accommodating. It was like all the sudden I had new friends. The property itself is like a hotel/motel hybrid--a main building where the front desk, breakfast, restaurant, pool, and some rooms are located. Then, there is a wing of motel-style rooms. This didn't phase me, (I was in the motel wing), but the only thing I would say is that it would be nice if they had bathrobes for the guests since you have to walk outside to get to the pool/hot tubs/sauna in the main building. It was cool that there were two hot tubs. Very pretty view. Room was relatively updated, comfortable, clean, and had a microwave & a mini-fridge that you can actually fit a few things inside, which was great. Aside from the employees I felt compelled to mention specifically, I observed that all of the staff--front desk, breakfast crew, restaurant-- projected an attitude that they'd be happy to help and seemed to work harmoniously together. I'm a happy camper.

Room Tip: If it's important to you to be in the main building, clarify that upon making your reservation...

Dear DMG2013:

Thank you very much for your review on TripAdvisor. We appreciate you mentioning Carrie as well as Megan and Stacey (at the restaurant). If you wouldn't mind leaving a review of the restaurant on TripAdvisor (Bay View at Best Western Pier Point Inn) we would greatly appreciate it as the restaurant is new and trying to gain an online presence. Also, thank you for the tip on the robes. It is an interesting idea that we will consider as we are always looking for new ideas to improve our guests' stay.

This hotel does seem pricey at $239 for a king. However, our room was newly refurbished in a very nice way; the location was perfect for our drive down the coast; and the view over the river & town with the ocean in the background was unbeatable. Jacob was great at helping with reservation, finding us a room that worked with my husband's broken ankle. Carrie at check-in is super polite & helpful. Brian & his assistant keep the delicious omelets going at the decent (and crowded) breakfast. BTW, recommend the omelets over the waffles. Also, we recommend the Firehouse pub in town for a beer & chowder. We've stayed at another Florence hotel that is across the river and much prefer this Best Western.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room.

While the room was very dark- not much lighting and dark decor, it was comfortable and a good location. off the main road and a restaurant within walking distance. i would stay there again but probably would not be back in the area. I would recommend it to others that are passing through.

I guess customer service comes at a hefty price. At the busy peak time of year, a small two-bed room will cost about $230. Yikes! It was virtually the only nice place on the Oregon coast that had any vacancies when I made reservations just a few days before. We decided to book a room because we've stayed at some terrible places on the coast as a result of my last minute reservations and many "no vacancies," and this time we wanted a nice vacation. As other reviewers mentioned, the customer service here was impeccable and rare. Although I booked an over-size room online, due to our need for a pet friendly room and a nearly full hotel, we got moved to a smaller room. We wanted more space for 2 dogs, 2 kids, and 2 adults but nothing was available. So at a minimum we wanted a lower nightly fee because of a smaller room. The man at the desk was awesome and called the manager and worked out some options while we went to dinner. Turned out, they moved us to the cottage (a 3-bedroom house) for just a fraction more money (a much reduced nightly rate for the rental). We had lots of space, they treated us right, and we had no glitches along the way. I would like to commend the staff's fantastic communication because, in he end, we were dealing with 4 different desk clerks and each one knew exactly what was going on and how to figure it out. It's rare to find such smooth operations at a busy hotel like this. I respect this a lot! We had a fantastic weekend and found the hotel to be clean, have extra perks, and be friendly. The free breakfast was more extensive than usual with an omelet bar in which they make eggs customized to order. I only wish there was higher quality or Greek yogurt and additional gluten free options like nuts, trail mix, GF cereal (GF Rice Krispies and Chex are widely available now), and bananas. The cut fruit and grapes were excellent. I'm not an egg eater but the omelet bar was great. The breakfast staff were frequently asking if we needed anything and were happy to bring out additional food. They opened the conference room with tables so we didn't have to worry about finding space in a busy breakfast time like at most hotels. Much calmer and relaxing. The main reasons I didn't give 5 stars were: high price, weak wireless Internet and none at the cottage, very small pool, small rooms like the first one we got. Not sure i would stay here again because of the high price, but if money were not an issue, then surely I would come here again. Since it's pricey anyway, I would make sure to get a suite or at least an oversized room. Views are gorgeous and location is great!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite or oversized room.

Dear Kathy M:

Thank you very much for your thorough review on TripAdvisor. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I understand the rate was a bit more expensive than others you've stayed at but please understand that this is our peak season (highest rates of the year) and we do have higher expenses that other hotels because we do provide higher levels of customer service and amenities that other hotels may not consider as important. Also, thank you for the tip on additional items at breakfast. We appreciate knowing what our guests want us to have available at breakfast.

Sincerely,
Elisa & Dan, Hotel Owners

We had a balcony with two chairs to sit and look at the river, bridge, and town across the river. VERY nice. We also had this view from our bed which was obstructed slightly by the refrigerator/microwave. The room is small but the bathroom is large and the beds were only doubles rather than queens. All that was available was a pet friendly room. WE don't have a pet but there was no evidence of pet odor or hair. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good bathtub. Better breakfast than we have had at any BW. Fresh hand prep'd fruit and handmade omelets are a plus.
