Never stay at this hotel THE ROOMS look nothing like the website.photos. It's dirty, smells and the front desk staff could really care less. When we booked this hotel we thought it would be great because of its access to the beach..WRONG!!!!After complaining to the front desk and getting nowhere I asked to speak to the manager because I would...

The room was very clean and the staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful. The price of the items in the lobby store were very reasonable - we were pleasantly surprised at this. The Christian background music made us feel very comfortable. It would be nice to have an in-room safe. The hotel is directly on the beach with gulf view...

This is our second time to stay at the Hotel. We did cut our stay short by one day due to beach construction that blocked off the beach. There was still access to the beach by walking down the beach, but with the back of the hotel, and adjacent property on one side blocked off, we thought that the beach...

Our family enjoyed the stay! We stayed two nights and felt completely relaxed. Our room had been recently remodeled. Being that it was directly on the beach, it would be impossible to keep the sand out of the walkway because there were guests going back and forth from the beach all day, so we were understanding of a little sand...

I first would like to say how important it is for people to be honest about their reviews because I read them before booking a room! This hotel is the worst I have EVER stayed in and I have traveled all around the world! I thought after paying $499 for one night that it would be very nice! Boy, was...

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night while traveling down the gulf coast. The staff put us in room 426. It had 2 queen beds that were extremely comfortable. The room had a beautiful view of the white sandy beach and emerald water! Most of all, the staff was very friendly, helpful, and gracious enough to give...

The staff at the Best Western on the Beach was so personable. They went way above the necessary thing to make our stay so pleasant. We only had to mention something and it was handled. The room was very clean and the location to shops and places to eat was great. The girls that worked the reception desk at night...

Nice family get away. Room was spacious and clean, however the bathroom was rather small but, it served the purpose. Very quiet, family atmosphere, located right on the beach within walking distance to souvenir shops and restaurants. Maid service was offered everyday, however we just requested clean towels and trash collection daily. This did appear to be an older hotel,...
