Third time was a charm with this Best Western. We originally booked the Holiday Inn at Surfside and realized it wasn't walking distance to well....much of anything in winter. We headed toward Ocean Blvd. in search of another option. The Holiday Inn on Ocean Blvd is not associated with the national chain and once we saw the room, we were not interested in staying.
A little further down we spotted this HUGE hotel. My boyfriend gets reward points for staying at Best Western brands so it was worth looking into. On Dec. 30 the only king available was an ocean view suite. The front desk was busy, but the person at check-in (sorry, don't remember his name) was calm and efficient and called someone to show us our room so we could decide if we wanted to stay. We took a look at the room before booking and were pleasantly surprised. The suite had a nice (although not very big) balcony and a separate bedroom with a king bed. The bathroom was huge as was the tub. The kitchen (with full size fridge) and living area were laid out nicely and we quickly decided we could stay here for a few days. The living area and the bedroom had a sliding door to the balcony and the front of the room was nothing but windows making it light and airy. We found the total for two nights reasonable. There is an $8 per day charge to park across the street and I was happy to find fresh coffee in the business center after a late afternoon walk.
It was close to restaurants and bars and we enjoyed walking to the boardwalk area about 1.5 miles from the hotel. Overall, great experience, we hope to be back.
