Hotel has great rooms even though they smelled a bit musty. Price was high but the staff was efficient and all in all worked well. Breakfast was totally adequate. Eggs were powdered but people were devouring them. We come every year and would stay here again

I stayed here 3 nights while in town for a friend's wedding. This place was close to the venue and also close to several shopping and restaurant districts. It's also a short (15 min) drive from the beach and very quiet part of town. The wifi was decent enough and the staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast was good....

The hotel was centrally located near many fine restaurants. The room was spacious. Complimentary breakfast was delightful. All the staff was friendly and hard working. I would recommend this place. It was safe, clean and quiet. The stay was extremely enjoyable and this will be our "go to" accommodation whenever visiting this area. Nice job Best Western Plus Bradenton Gateway!

A nice hotel. Unfortunately the WIFI hook-up was very poor. Could not connect to the WIFI with my laptop. I thought by this time they could make this problem seamless. The TV channel selection was unduly complicated

We stay at BW all of the time, and enjoy the Plus hotels. This was our first time staying at this one; and we weren't expecting to like the hotel better than the SR 64 location. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom big enough... I am handicapped, and had a roll-on shower. The only issues were that the remote didn't...

Everything was very nice, and the staff were friendly. Rooms were great, and no waiting for the elevator. The only concern was that the pool was not cleaned in the 5 days we were there. The water was clear and warm but the same leaves were there all week. Being Canadian we like to swim in winter. The other suggestion...

The arm chair was positively filthy. The pillows were terrible and when I asked for different pillow what we got was even worse. It was a decent location but the area was very industrial. Probably won't stay again

I am sorry about your stay here, I had to check this arm chair out myself and when I did today that is two days after you checked out and there was not a spot on the arm chair, there were arm covers on the chair that are removable and I pulled those off and still did not find anything...
