We wanted to stay somewhere central to a number of spring training sites and Bradenton fit the bill. This hotel tucked in away from a main road seemed to be a good fit. We were quite happy with it. The location was handy for everywhere we wanted to travel for different games and also an easy drive to the Bradenton Beach area. The staff was helpful and courteous especially manager Chris Sears. We were given excellent dinner recommendations. Room was very clean. Pool was nice. Ample free parking. Breakfast was okay. Would have liked more fresh fruit, but didn't ask for it while there, so really can't complain. But there were other choices and it worked out fine for us. It was great having tea bags and hot water available 24/7(coffee and juice also). Bed was comfy. Rooms were quiet. Would stay there again if we are able to come to Bradenton again for baseball.

This hotel ... once you find it tucked away behind the Cracker Barrel ... is very nice, quiet, and efficiently run. Breakfast area is small and so when hotel is busy, seating is difficult and foods run out quickly. Staff endeavours to keep up, but it is a losing battle. Front desk staff are courteous and helpful. We chose not to have cleaning staff enter our room, but were disappointed that they took the "Do Not Disturb" sign to mean don't even ask if there are any needs or desires, even if you see the guests in the hallway outside the room. For a hotel in this price range, that is poor service. Fresh baked cookies were a nice touch at night. Feeding a squirrel in the entrance way just beyond the kitchen was not. We would consider staying here again, but another BW just down the road has lower weekday rates and was equal to this one when we stayed there, so we might return there instead next time. Either way, BW seems the best hotel chain in the area, at least to us.

Stayed at this hotel purely because of other reviews and most especially because it was a non smoking hotel.Our room smelt of smoke and obviously noted by staff prior to our arrival because an air purifying machine had been left on the desk. We spoke to reception who were unable to move us as the hotel was full. They did offer to move us for our second night which was a bit inconvenient.We asked for a discount which was begrudgingly given and the staff did not have a very helpful attitude regarding our stay. Breakfast was only OK and is eaten in the lobby area. Worst Best Western we have stayed in. We shall think twice about using this hotel chain again, next few nights we stayed at a Sleep Inn, much nicer!!

Close to Festival. Clean, convenient, behind Cracker Barrel and plenty of places to walk to eat. Very nice heated pool. Breakfast was great. Plenty of towels and the beds were comfortable. Good refrig.

This was a very nice hotel, a little hidden behind the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. It is on a busy street, but you wouldn't know it, because it is back from the main road. Very quiet. The rooms are clean, and they put on a nice breakfast. The breakfast included hot and cold items. Waffles, oatmeal, cereal, doughnuts, juice, coffee, tea.
We did not use any amenities of the hotel. Just enjoyed the nice clean rooms, and slept well in the quiet. Would recommend...
