Best Western Plus Beach Resort

Reviewed 16 March 2012

Just got back from Ft Myers beach and i stayed at the Best Western Resort with my family. Amazing location on the ocean and the view from your room balcony is breathtaking. The continental breakfast every morning was delicous and full of variety. Only thing i didnt like was the slow elevators. Other then that minor flaw i will 100% stay at this resort again! I HIGHLY recommend this resort to anyone! Beach is right off the resort and away from spring breakers. Within walking distant of tons of restaurants and shopping! WONDERFUL resort!

My wife and two teen children stayed only one night after getting a ground floor room with ripped furniture, nail polish dried on dining room table, and candy wrappers in chairs. I assume this was worst room and other rooms are nicer based on generally positive reviews. Great location is only positive. The pool is relatively small. It has few resort amenities like restaurant, bar, whirlpool, store, spa and ATM. We have stayed at other Ft Myers Beach places and don't understand the rave reviews particularly in light of steep price. Staff was kind enough to let us cancel remainder of reservation without penalty.

This is the second time we have visited this hotel since it's re-furbishment in the last two years and this time the property was just as crisp and new as the last time. Sited right on the beach you could not wish for a better location. The price is higher end for the resort but worth it as long as they keep it in tip top condition. Service is OK and reasonably friendly. Breakfast buffet is good with plenty of choice and the addition this year of hot breakfast rolls. Free internet and wi-fi is a bonus. Close to the bars and eateries but far enough away to be quiet at night. All rooms face the sea.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the 5th floor (top floor) for best views.

We stayed at this hotel when our children were small and loved it. Recently we stayed again for two nights. The rooms have been remodeled since we stayed there last and while they are more modern and up to date, the space felt alot smaller to us. Still nice to have a kitchenette but with luggage for 3 adults and one child, it felt crowded to us. Love that the ocean is right outside the lobby door and the pool, while not huge, was heated perfectly so you weren't chilled at all in the water. Loved our stay but wish for the price of $266.00 per night, the rooms would have been bigger.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front, so there's not a bad view out of any of them. Except first floor roo...

We do have several suites that would better accommodate 3 adults and a child, more than likely they were already reserved. Thank you for the review and staying with us.

The room was too small. OK, it did face the Gulf, bit you could barely walk around the bed. I have stayed at many Best Westerns, and this is the highest price. Too me, it should have been about half of the amount paid. Breakfast in the morning was ok, but there is only seating for about 14 people. Really too small. But if you want to walk out to the back door to the beach, this is your hotel.

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel

We are sorry we did not meet or exceed your expectations. All Best Westerns are independently owned are operated and not a cookie cutter franchise. I am sure that there are many other Best Western properties that may accommodate your needs in the future.

Large, clean rooms and bathrooms, very nice breakfasts, free Wi-fi, free airport shuttle service, very affordable and a very friendly staff. What more could you ask for? Oh, and a great location....close to the Red Sox's brand new stadium, near the Twins' stadium, close to a great outlet mall for shopping and tons of restaurants! The only criticism we had was that the A/C unit is a bit noisy. All in all, this was one of our better hotel choices!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room AWAY from the elevators! They 'ping' and 'buzz' constantl...

We stayed at the Best Western Plus in Fort Myers Beach February 21-26, 2012. It was the perfect escape from Michigan winter, though I must say this winter hasn't been so bad! The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms were lovely. We would definitely stay there again, but I would like to share some information that might be helpful. The beach was glorious, and the back of the hotel is just 30 feet from the beach -- and that 30 feet is made up of a lush lawn, palm trees and tropical plants. Very little seaweed on the beach, and lots of shells. The breakfast was terrific, including breakfast sandwiches, bagels, Dunkin Donuts, pastries, fresh fruit, cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels, etc. More than your average free hotel breakfast. The hotel has a parrot that they put outside during the day -- very cute! The room included a kitchenette but had table seating only for 2. That was a drawback for a family of 4. Also, there was a pool but no hot-tub. Alas. The bathroom was pretty standard, but the ventilation was not good. Finally, there was no screen on the sliding door. We did not have bugs until our last of 5 nights, when we were inundated by tiny bugs that would have gotten through the screen, even if there had been one. These same tiny bugs were on the beach, too, so this had nothing to do with the hotel. Note that this is on a small island with an overpass, and, getting onto the island can take a while if it is "prime time." We went off the island about 10 a.m. on a Wednesday to go to the grocery store, and though we only drove maybe 2 miles, it took a good half hour to get back on the island.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third or fourth floor might have their view of the ocean blocked somewhat by the palm t...
