I like Best Western hotels but this one did not meet my expectation. The hotel honored my request for higher floor though I did not enjoy the view because of the pier. Breakfast was good with variety to choose from.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was nice and accommodating. Our first night our a.c. unit was knocking really bad. We called the front desk and within about 30 minutes Al was knocking at our door with a brand new unit. He swapped the units and the rest of our stay was cool and quiet. The hotel was...

Absolutely, the dirtiest, smelliest, most overpriced hotel I have ever visited. The "free" breakfast included was horrible. (borderline inedible) We paid $400 a night and it wasn't worth 10% of that. Do yourself a favor and make other choices. The fact that this is a certified great value, great hotel on your website boggles my mind.

The location is really great and the views are amazing! My husband and I stayed with our 2 kids aged 4 and 6 in a 2 queen bed room. I cant count how many times we all got stubbed toes from the bathroom door opening up into the sink area. There was no room to spread out whatsoever. The breakfast...

I enjoyed my stay here as I have in the past. I did not enjoy the breakfast though. Outside of that I had a great time. They would get a better a review if they had a better breakfast buffet with real scrambled eggs and some pancake, waffles & French toast. and offered outside seating as an option

This hotel is very nice, good location and a true value. The desk clerk was very nice upon arrival. The room was great, decorated nicely and clean.
