Best Western Plus Bradenton Hotel & Suites
Ranked #6 of 21 Hotels in Bradenton
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Staff was very friendly. Beds were cozy, and the room was clean. Serving breakfast to that many guests is difficult so the hot food options were plenty and very good. I would recommend adding another waffle maker because it takes several minutes to cook one waffle. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room near the stairs is great. Only one elevator so we just hiked it up/down. No restaurant. Did...

Staff were very helpful. My original booking had not been transferred to their system, but Amber worked for an hour to make sure that they could accommodate us, despite being fully booked for two of our eight night stay. Had a problem with our "neighbour" and when I mentioned it to the mangeress, she immediately arranged a room move and dealt with the "neighbour's" behaviour.

Breakfast room was a little small at times, for the number of people staying and trying to use it. The variety of food available was always good and the hot food varied every day - sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, sautee potatoes, grits, along with a choice of cereal, fruit juices, toasts, fresh waffles and pastries.

Set in an area with other hotels, it was very easy to find off the I-75. McDonalds and Cracker Barrel were within a couple of minutes walk and numerous restaurants were within a short drive.

The rooms were spacious and modern, with flat screen tv, microwave and fridge. You can control the temperature of room with a digitally controlled air con unit that is also a heater, for those cooler nights.

We wouldn't hesitate in staying there again.

Room Tip: The third floor is the quietest

Last minute reservation, didn't know what to expect, late at night, seemed clean and welcoming. Next morning, in the light of day, looked even better. Stayed for a few days. Very, very well run. Friendly, helpful and courteous staff. Had we spent three weeks searching for lovely, clean hotel instead of a panicked 'YELP' find, we couldn't have been more pleased.

Thanks to the staff, especially Chris Sears. Long live the family of egrets who come daily to visit. Laura Guenego, Joyce family, and Lyons family.

We stopped here on our way to Southern Florida. The hotel is convenient to I 75 and to a number of restaurants including one of our favorites, the Cracker Barrel. The desk clerk Shavonna was very friendly and helpful. Our room was average size and had recently been redecorated. The beds were very comfortable, so we had a good night's sleep. Price was a little high due to the high season, but competitive for the area. The only downside was the absence of luggage racks and some mold in the bathtub caulk. Nonetheless, we can recommend this hotel to travelers who are passing through Bradenton and who want a clean, comfortable place to stay overnight.

We recently stayed at this BW for 4 nights. Very impressed with how quite the room was which was nearby to the elevator and vending area. Additionally, we didn't hear any slamming of other guest doors! The bed was very comfortable and room was clean. The breakfast offered many options...hot cooked eggs with sausage links, bacon and cereal. Would definitely stay there again.
