“One of the best hotel experiences we have had!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

My company travels all over the nation and stay in all types of hotels. The general manager of this Best Western, Chris Sears, was one of the nicest and most helpful people we have ever encountered. We will not stay anywhere else when we come to Bradenton.

We brought a group there for a local bowling tournament. When the tournament is back in Bradenton, we will stay here again. Complimentary breakfast in the morning and very pleasant staff. Chris, the General Manager is awesome.

My wife and I were meeting another couple in Bradenton for a business trip. Called for a reservation after the other couple had made their reservation at Best Western Plus. With it being season in Florida there was not alot available. The General Manager Chris Sears got involved and he was able to get us accommodations at his hotel, at a very fair rate. My wife and I were extremely happy with the room, the location, the amenities and the staff. We travel often and I must say that we will always stay at this Hotel on all of our visits to the Bradenton-Sarasota area. The management, staff, and facility are wonderful,

Clean rooms,comfortable beds and fluffy towels await guests at this hotel.
A slow internet connection and the typical musty smell when the AC was turned on (common in Florida) were the only bad things we found. A typical breakfast bar was available to guests.

Chris, the General manager treats this hotel like he owns it, making sure everything is perfect. He has a pet Egret that visits for breakfast which just enhances the the very nice breakfast spread. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. The decor is deco and very interesting! Would return when in the area!

Love staying at this beautiful hotel right in Bradenton. Disappointed in breakfast. Hot breakfast included cold boiled eggs, warm sausage patties and waffles. Hotel is top quality and breakfast used to be better when we were here two years ago.
