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,...

My daughter and I had a wonderful mother/daughter time. The weather wasn't that great, but the room was very pleasant and the balcony looking out at the beach and water was relaxing. The staff was very pleasant and very helpful.

The staff was excellent and the view from our room was breath taking. The rooms were standard but you are paying for the view and being right on the beach The staff personally greeted us and always made sure to ask if we were enjoying ourselves. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We will be back.

Older hotel but very clean & neat. Beds were extremely comfortable and pillows super soft. The rooms are bare minimum but we came for the beach. Had a great ocean view from the 3rd floor. Pools were nice. Free parking!
