This was a very welcome surprise. I wasn't expecting the level of perfection that this property displayed. Clean, modern, well maintained. Employees went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. Breakfast was better than any I've had for free. You can tell that the management knows how to give a good guest experience. We did have...

We brought a lacrosse team here and the staff was highly accommodating. The rooms were very clean. It's centrally located to various restaurants around the area. Excellent place to stay. We will see you definetly see you next year.

The hotel was visually appealing and the free breakfast was decent. When we entered the room it smelled musty, damp, and a bit moldy. It appeared to be clean and we were only staying for one night so we did not complain. Hopefully this is an unusual occurrence.

Usually have no problems with BW hotels but the beds in this room were soft and used, bathroom shower had little pressure and fixtures coming off/loose. Breakfest was average as was apple water instead of juice (had to go to 7eleven next door for real juice) and toasters out of date (after 5 min english muffin still white). The hotel...

Not fancy but clean. Walls where a little thin, could hear voices next door. Staff was friendly, hot breakfast & coffee were very good. Reasonable rate, definitely a good value. Decor is a little dark and dated. Bed was comfortable. Lots of nearby restaurants and location was very convenient for us. Parking is Close by and neighborhood seems safe. We...

The room was very spacious and very clean. Housekeeping did a great job. The breakfast was lackluster and tasted like it had been out way too long. Aside from that, I would go there again, however, I would eat breakfast somewhere else

Very good value hotel only about ten minutes to Anna Maria Island. In room fridge and microwave helps to make a longer stay more comfortable so you do not have to keep going out to restaurants to eat. Also the fact that coffee is on 24/7 in the lobby makes it easier to have a drink on the go. Stayed...

For years we bypassed Best Western motels and elected to stay in other major national chains known for clean rooms and comfortable beds and great service. Previously the out of state Best Western motels we tried were not clean. Unfortunately, because of severe allergies windows are not often opened in my home and we rely on a/c. Recently a new...

My sister and I stayed here during a visit to Bradenton while a relative was ill. The staff were exceptional. Our first night the toilet was spraying water all over the bathroom and the night desk attendant came immediately to fix the problem and to engage the maintenance man to repair it promptly. The cleaning staff were pleasant and did...
