    We liked all of the ammenites we got for the price we paid. We staid in an oceanfront room that had a fridge and microwave, comp breakfast, and one-day free beachchair/umbrella. It was awesome! I don't consider myself a drinker, but the poolside bartender was great, and unfortunately for us, made great drinks. We didn't know what hit us! We've stayed at other locations along the same beach, but we really like the section of beach that Best West is located on. We normally book a condo for spring break, but we wanted a place on the beach that had ammenities we were looking for and was more affordable. Best West was it! It's walking distance to restaurants and convenience/souvenir stores, so you don't even have to move your car if you don't want to. We're already booked to go back this summer for some more fun in the sun!

    The air blowing out on the balcony from the air conditioner was an unpleasant surprise when you sat in the chair in front of it, but it was minor.

    Great location and the view is fantastic. Beach umbrella/chairs for free which is great breakfast was good, waffles, juices, muffins etc. rooms would need some refreshment but ok

    We actually like everything but the hotel definitively need some refreshment. For 1 night it was ok but I wouldn´t stay here for one week. It is a motel and not an hotel.

  • 9.6

    Variety of items for breakfast

    If u have the do not disturb sign out when house keeping comes by they do not come back to clean ur room later.They don't clean again till the next day

  • 8.2

    The staff was very friendly and attentive. The location with beach service was perfect!

    Breakfast was good but needs to be moved away from the reception desk. Ice machines on every floor would be more convenient too.

  • 9.2

    The private hotel beach was awesome. Staff was the friendliest and most helpful than at any other place we stayed. The breakfast had a good variety. Beds were very comfortable. Convenient elevator with outside entrance.

    Ventilation in the elevators.

  • 8.2

    Bed was comfortable

    I wasn't able to get an oceanfront room but that wasn't the hotel's fault.

  • 7.8

    Pleasant room with balcony overlooking the pool and beach. Good breakfast and comfortable beds.

    AC was loud and cycled off and on.

  • 9.6

    it was nice overall. I really enjoyed the balcony. very friendly staff.

    They wouldn't allow us to use my husbands AARP card for a discount since it was booked through Booked.net.

  • 9.2

    We couldn't say enough great things about the beds/pillows/bedding...they were extremely comfortable. Everyone was super friendly and inviting ~ from the front desk staff to the maintenance guys and housekeeping staff. The entire hotel staff goes above and beyond to provide great customer service. The tiki bar next to the pool was an added bonus. Loved the easy access to the pool and private beach entrance.

    I wish there had been a little more variety in the way they prepared breakfast. For example: offer scrambled eggs, more than one choice of meat per day, and pancakes would have been appreciated. My only other suggestion would be to maybe put a rubber mat running the length of the wooden deck leading to the pool and ocean. Most people do not wear shoes to and from the ocean, and the decking gets pretty hot under your feet.

  • 9.2

    sausage gravy, Don at the tiki bar, beachfront, STAFF WAS AMAZING EVERYWHERE (front desk, bar, maintenance, housekeeping, etc.)

    Later pool hours for adults only!!!!!

  • 5.8

    Close to the beach. Tiki bar was nice outside. Continental breakfast was good.

    Doors were tough to open in the rooms. Beach umbrellas were put away at 5pm.

  • 8.8

    It was nice for breakfast to be included every morning. Plus having two beach chairs and umbrella every day already set up for free was great. Beds slept very well.

    It would've been good to have a variety of breakfast, instead of basically the same thing every day.

  • 7.4

    The food and drinks were very good and we would stay again. View from room great. Liked staff and extras.

    Cannot think of anything.

  • 10.0

    Nice comfortable beds, big clean bathroom. Few steps to beach.

    Wish we had been oceanfront.

  • 9.2

    The beds were super comfy. Housekeeping was really nice and fast at their job! The the little bar, swizzle stix had a nice atmosphere and bartender was really nice. Breakfast had a big variety of food. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. This was our second year in a row to visit. And of course the beach with free chairs and umbrella was nice. They do take the chairs up at 5, so if you plan on sitting on beach after 5, you need to bring your own chairs if you don't want to sit in the sand.

    We had to hold down the toilet handle a while to make the toilet flush, but that was minor. The wifi didn't work very well, but then again, we were there for the beach anyway.
