Rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again. The general manager was very nice and easy to talk to. He went the extra step to make sure I would get reward points and to make sure I was registered for promotions.

We stayed 5 nights while visiting our parents. The room is pretty standard, but it was quiet, clean, and well-appointed. It had all the items we needed (toiletries, hairdryer, microwave, frig, etc.) for a very reasonable price. Towels and bed linens were nice and the bed was comfortable. The staff was polite. We only had minor complaints. The breakfast was...

This hotel was a great surprise. We had an evening there prior to our movers arriving and it was lovely. It is also pet friendly. We have two cats and there was no problem. Though it poured that night we had a chance to check out the pool earlier and wow, how very nice. The rooms looked very updated and...

Holiday weekend .. Breakfast packed yet they actually had 2 people working and the food was above good and tables got cleaned and nothing ran out!! Very easy to chalk it up to Holiday traffic rather then increase Payroll and adjust to the Volume. Also the entire Building is non-smoking. Plus all rooms in order to be a PLUS are...

We arrived in the middle of a downpour and though the lightening and thunder was incredible the hotel was quiet and dry! Check in was fast and efficient and we were given recommendations for close by restaurants that didn't require a lot more driving in the bad weather. The room was well appointed, clean and looked as if recently redone....

I stayed two nights at the Best Western Plus Manatee Hotel and I enjoyed my stay there. I had a spacious room overlooking the pool, a comfortable bed, and a large bathroom with a hot tub. The room was clean except for a frame that had mould inside it. My only negative comment would be the humidity in the room....

We were in town for a large event over the weekend and stayed 3 nights here. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfast impressed me. The next time we are in Bradenton, we will be staying here again. I do recommend it if you're in the area.
