Baf1795, Springfield, Missouri 30/06/2020

Very clean hotel ALL of the staff very accommodating and pleasant We checked in night of June 29--I have to give kudos to the night desk manager—very nice man who is helpful with food late at night, at our keys ready before we even walked up to him, etc. The hotel is older but recently repainted and extremely clean. Excellent value. Nice pool, and 100 feet from the beach. Breakfast was limited due to Covid, but very clean area, masks mandatory and they did everything to ensure safety. I will definitely stay here again with a large group or family

We ended up here by complete accident. When we arrived the room was clean, we checked in and we happen to get a pretty nice room that was out on the Sundeck so there was lots of space for the kids to be able to go out and play. The Sunday Night Before Memorial Day our toilet stopped working in the middle of the night. I went downstairs to the lobby to the front desk and there was a sign that said that the front desk was only open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. it was 2 in the morning. I looked around and saw that there was a young man sitting at the bar on his laptop. When I kept standing there he finally got up and told me that he was the front desk attendant and asked me if he could help me. I proceeded to tell him that my toilet has stopped working and I needed a plunger because there wasn't one in my room. I also needed towels and we're out of toilet paper. He responded and said well if your toilet is not working do you really need toilet paper? Yes, I told him so he proceeded to get up from his makeshift desk area at the bar and go into a locked closet and handed me a roll of toilet paper and 2 towels. He then started looking in a bunch of other rooms and eventually said he was trying to find me a plunger. I stood there for a few minutes and finally he said im going to keep looking for a plunger and if I don't find one ill call your room and let you know. I told him I had small kids sleeping so he said he would come upstairs and tell me if he couldn't find one. I waited about 30 minutes before finally getting the idea that maybe the downstairs bathroom in the lobby might have had one. I proceeded to head to the downstairs bathroom and see the same young man sitting playing on his laptop again. When he saw me he jumped up and said you are going to use the room across the halls bathroom. So he hands me the room key to the room across the hall. Which is what we did for the rest of our stay. When checking out I told the morning attendant what had transpired and she got an attitude and told me that because I booked through Priceline I wasn't eligible for a discount. I never asked her to give me a discount but she was extremely rude about it. It's also worthy to note that on Sunday before Memorial Day during the day we spent the day at the pool my sister and I and our children and the maintenance men are very creepy they proceeded to stand at the window and stare at us very boldly and it was extremely uncomfortable for us. So just be wary.

Dear Guest, Allow me to apologize for the issues experienced during your stay with us. I see that the issue was resolved with a manager and while this should have never happened the employees in question were re- trained on how to handle complaints as they arise. We do hope that you will visit our hotel in the future, so that we may have another chance to provide a more positive experience. Best, Ms. T, Front Office Manager

School is starting soon and I needed a break from everything that's happening so I decided to book at BW. It was great. The facility is super nice. They took the necessary measures to ensure our safety. I loved that parking was free for one car. I'm only giving 4 stars because I didn't get to stay in the partial ocean view.

"Good located hotel"

JAScholten, Middelbeers, The Netherlands 29/03/2020

We stayed 3 nights in the beginning of march at this BW hotel. The hotel is nice located in the vicinity of the Fort Lauderdale boulevard with some nice restaurants and bars and is also close by two hop on/off places for the water taxi. The hotel itself is pretty good, room is clean with two queen beds. We had a room on the upper floor as we requested and from there you have a beautiful view towards the harbor. We saw some cruise boats leaving the harbor from our balcony. The staff is friendly and special thanks to the management who had abode to our request for a room on the upper floor. The only two negative point for us were the thin walls, it was spring break and a lot of young adults were shouting and running through the corridor and adjacent rooms and you could hear everything as you were in the same room. And the second negative point was the cost of a parking lot underneath the hotel, the parking garage itself is okay but the price is way to much. Breakfast was perfect and vary each day.

Best Western Oceanside Inn is a great hotel located near the airport. A quick walk and you are able to hit the beach or walk along the beach boulevard. The hotel itself is nice. Lovely pool and two levels of poolside tables and chairs. Great place to relax and have a cocktail from the bar. Breakfast was good, hotel staff all friendly and helpful. We stayed here twice over a two week holiday and would stay again in the future.

"Pre-cruise Stop Over"

RowlandK_12, Hullbridge, United Kingdom 13/03/2020

We stayed here for three nights prior to a cruise that got cancelled. Unfortunately for us it was spring break so the hotel was rather busy and noisey. We should have done some research before we booked. However, there were several pluses. All hotel staff were excellent and helpful. The inclusive breakfast was great especially as we were there before all the youngsters got up. The room was ok but some signs of wear but comfy beds and very clean. Plus fridge and microwave. We were on the second floor next to a door to the veranda which was in constant use and could be heard in our room. It did not seem loud outside our but inside it was. The bar service was excellent and bar meals were also very good and reasonably priced. The pool was on the small side and pretty full so not very inviting. The receptionists on the front desk where excellent and with all the cruises being cancelled due to Corona virus were prepare to hold our room for an extra night on a contingency basis. Unfortunately the inevitable happen and the cruise was cancelled and we required the extra night to a few restaurants. Yes we would stay here again but as old fuddy duddies we would avoid spring break.

Shallie B, Huntington, Indiana 07/03/2020

Nice location for public beach access! However despite looking remodeled it still lacked in cleanliness. Upon arriving all trash cans inside and out were overflowing with trash at 2pm. Only 1 of 2 elevators were working. Our room was clean and beds were comfortable but the bathroom was small and showing age despite being updated.

We regularly try to stay here the night before leaving on a cruise ship. We checked in late due to the arrival of our flight but the staff were excellent in having the chef make us a hot sandwich even though the kitchen was closing. The staff are consistently friendly and helpful. An excellent full buffet breakfast got us off to a good start for our day.

User 29/02/2020

Had not been at the Oceanside Inn in thirty years, but it is better than ever. Great staff from housekeeping to food service to the front desk. Everything was clean and well kept. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. The location is a short walk to the beach with restaurants and shops within a mile. The included breakfast buffet was outstanding with a large and diverse selection. Only minor negatives were small bathrooms and high parking garage fees. Our stay more than met our expectations.

Calabaykid, Stanford-Le-Hope, United Kingdom 29/02/2020

booked this hotel an hour before check in due to big problems with 2 other reservations for same date (see 2 other reviews). Agree with relaxedinedmonton, that the hotel is old and needs a face list, the room was very large but the balcony view was just the hotel next door and a few trees. Pleasantly surprised with self serve breakfast, food nice and hot, and topped up regularly. Not much around the hotel, but short walk to beach and 30 minutes walk from hotel along beach road to Las Olas area. Fort Lauderdale hotel prices are high - rates at the BW was a bit lower - car parking charge $22 plus tax a day was high though

Hotel is old, could for sure use a facelift. Staff was friendly and helpful! There really isn't a balcony view, just the hotel next door and some trees! I would go back, but will look around a bit more before returning to this hotel. Breakfast was good, pretty typical hotel self serve breakfast!

"Gets the job done, but not great."

ahookey, Ontario, Canada 28/02/2020

Front desk staff and daytime bartender/server not friendly at all. Hotel has had a face lift, but still quite dated in areas. Clean enough, but the quick fixes make it feel more run down. One of the best complimentary hotel breakfasts we have had, however the food from the restaurant at dinner was no better than a hospital cafeteria. Easy drive to the cruise terminal, so it got the job done for one night.

"After cruise, older hotel, kept up pretty well, should have some type of shuttle from the airport and into the beach ar"

jortwein, Cincinnati, OH 28/02/2020

Room was ok, older, but well taken care of. AC made a lot of noise when it kicked on, liked having the room with the pool deck right outside, convenient to going outside. Breakfast was typical hotel breakfast. Menu for lunch and dinner was quite extensive, food was good, a little pricey though. Need a shuttle to beach area and from the airport.

"Great location - Lovely and comfortable rooms"

User 27/02/2020

I only stayed one night. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We arrived at noon and were allowed to check in. It was an easy walk to the beach and restaurants. Our meal in the restaurant, which we brought up to the room, was delicious. (They do not have room service) The free breakfast was good with a good variety to pick from. I would definitely stay again.

"Great place! "

cateyscherr, Woodbury, Minnesota 23/02/2020

Our stay was short but very pleasant. We were able to easily walk to the beach (about one block away) and spent our mid-afternoon and evening swimming in the heated pool. The staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. We had dinner there our first night and it was very good. We had several cocktails both nights and they were made to perfection. We highly recommend the rum runners. The free breakfast was an added bonus, most guests take advantage of this so it was quite crowded and it is very clear why, because the food was exceptional. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and although the bathroom was a little outdated it was very clean and kept up well by the staff. The beds were very comfortable as well. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Skidmarx69, Fayetteville, Georgia 19/02/2020

My daughter and I flew in from Atlanta to get some sun and fun for one night. We happened upon this little gem. Location is fantastic. 15 minutes from FLL and just around the corner from the beach. We booked it once we landed requesting an early check in. Little did we know Maira Miranda at the front desk was going to let us in at 12:30. All staff were super nice. The building is an older hotel style but they have updated it to look fantastic. Pool was basic with great furniture. Parking was a breeze ($20). Breakfast buffet was great. We really enjoyed our stay. Will do it again soon.

There were 6 of us that stayed one night prior to our cruise. The location is perfect! Just off the beach and easy walking to restaurants. Check in went smoothly even though we arrived early. We had drinks around the pool. That evening we had dinner and had great service and the nachos were excellent!! We would definitely return, but next time we will go in 3 days early!

Hotel is a little dated but clean and staff were very friendly. The Ft Lauderdale public beach is more less out the back door. The beach is wide so it's a couple hundred yards to the water. The beach is also very long. Highly recommended (411 South) on the boardwalk drinks and eats.

"Wedding Party"

bhood06, Jackson, Michigan 10/02/2020

Reserved 4 rooms for my wedding party in Jan while getting married on Ft Lauderdale beach. There is very little parking in front for unloading and you have to pay extra for parking even if you're staying there so we opted to take our rental back right away. Front desk staff was very friendly and informative. The rooms we just ok... not super updated or anything but clean and nice balcony view... the price definitely comes from the location. It was just a very short walk to the beach for my ceremony, which was nice. The shuttle service to the cruise port was also very affordable and convenient all set up with the hotel. We just told them how many people and what time. $7 a person. They were there on time and very professional, helpful and friendly. Checkout was easy and although I didn't personally go down and eat the continental breakfast we had quite a few kids with us and it was nice to send them down to eat while getting ready for the wedding that morning. Overall with the chaos of the day the hotel stay was the least of my worries (in a good way) and our experience was pleasant.

very clean, friendly staff and great location. Restaurant being open late really helped as we had a late flight. Limited elevators but they moved quickly and efficiently. It is convenient for the Port Terminal and in a less congested traffic area.

mmcf1994, Mebane, North Carolina 04/02/2020

Clean, but dated, especially in the bathroom s. Handles on toilet and shower felt like they would fall off at anytime. Pool was fabulous! Proximity to beach excellent. Great area to rent and use bikes. Water taxi pick up near by and a Fun way to spend a few hours. Trolly is $1 each way. The hotel was most gracious in storing our luggage for us after we checked out.

"Great location for Ft. Lauderdale"

4
Mick D, San Francisco, California 04/02/2020

This an adequate in Ft. Lauderdale, not to far from the airport and nearly on the beach. It's a short 3 minute walk behind the hotel to get to the beach. Rooms a pretty basic, comfortable beds and the storm doors and windows keep noise out. They do offer a free breakfast buffet in the morning. I found most of the offerings to be either too sweet or too salty. Lots of people stay here it seems because of the short distance to the cruise ships terminal. Not too far from airport either, but no airport shuttle.

"Wonderful staff, great breakfast, clean rooms"

User 03/02/2020

Stayed for a night between cruise and flying home. Great front desk staff who stored our bags and got us in to a room as soon as one became available (we showed up 9 hours before check in). They were very pleasant and accommodating. Clean and bright hotel room with a great view of the pool. Bar food was great too! Breakfast had great options, including GF & DF! Overall great experience and perfect way to end a vacation!

This hotel is a bit old looking but was clean and the staff was friendly. The best part is that the hotel is within walking distance to the beach boardwalk, restaurants and shops. The staff is very friendly and it was a good choice before and after our cruise.

Convenient location for beach, convention center, cruise, and airport access. Amenities at hotel included food and bar. Bar had casual bar-type food offerings.

cantravnut, Toronto, Canada 28/01/2020

We stayed over 1 night between a cruise and flight home. This is a totally acceptable hotel, clean and fresh decor, good breakfast (need to eliminate single use plastics though!!!). Room was quiet and dark, good view of the pool from our 5th floor balcony. Did not use pool/sundeck but looked nice and clean. Only half a block from the beach, and location is at the south end of the beach, 10-15 min taxi ride to either port or airport. Only quibble is the cost which seems to be an issue in FL in general, this place is fine but it's a pretty standard Best Western, and it cost more than our much more elaborate beachfront resort in Barbados (itself an expensive island).

Everyone there is exceptional, from the front desk staff, the bartender, to the dining room staff. This place is clean, quiet, and the pool is great. It is within walking distance to lots of local shops, restaurants, and bars. If you want to rent a car there is a convenient Enterprise not far from there that has after hour drop off at the hotel next door.

erinnball, Denver, Colorado 15/01/2020

We checked in last minute into a king suite with a balcony and a huge bathroom. They have a parking garage and nice pool/bar/dining area. The room was the most reasonable rate we saw for the area and is within walking distance to the beach. The breakfast was better than usual as well. Nola was delightful at the front desk. It's an older property but kept up well.

We booked a night here prior to our cruise. We loved our room, it was very clean and roomy. We were on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. The balcony area is an open concept so you might have someone sitting outside of your room. Just an FYI-it was not a dealbreaker for us. And, we cannot leave out our wonderful Rose, the bartender who took care of us! She was very friendly and had some wonderful stories to tell! She also poured a mean drink! We will definitely stay here again when in the Fort Lauderdale area!!

daveamidon, Syracuse, New York 09/01/2020

We traveled to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise and were looking for an ocean-front hotel with reasonable rates to stay in before and after. We are very pleased that we chose BW Oceanside. Their location is great- easy to walk to the beach & restaurants/ shopping. Quick ride to the cruise port and airport. The rooms are very comfortable and other features were nice. The bar had good food and the kids loved the pool. They put a lot of production into the complementary breakfast - and it was awesome! The staff were extremely polite and helpful. The bartender was easy to talk to and the mangers were fantastic. I had a situation with my booking through a 3rd party and they handled it beautifully. All in all- if you can get a good rate, you won't be disappointed with the Oceanside.

Add to that, the amazing sunrise and white sand beach, taking a brisk walk, touching toes in the warm Atlantic. What a present.

Hotel was fine, nice room with balcony, but the stay was ruined when I was offered a ride to the airport in the hotel shuttle instead of a taxi. I had to pay $100 which is way more than a taxi would have been and we where 5 paying adults in that beat up van... Hingway robbery, not cool.

User 02/01/2020

The BW+ Oceanside is just in 1min walking distance to the beach. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The pool and sundeck are great and angled towards the sun the whole day. Breakfast is continental as in every other hotel in this category, BUT(!!) they got proper plates! Not those paper or cheap plastic plates like in other places. My family is from Europe and we always have porcelain plates in every hotel, so coming to the US this was a shock to us. But as I said, this hotel got the right amenities and proper cutlery too.

HeidiandCarl, Senoia, Georgia 31/12/2019

Stayed here night before getting on our cruise. Location to port is excellent, however, trying to get into the hotel is difficult. Very small driveway and even more difficult getting luggage cart up the pathway. Close to beach but not directly on beach. Very tight with other buildings around. Had issue with them charging our card 3 times and front desk staff wasn't the friendliest. Parking was good as it was covered. Didn't investigate the area as we were tired and just there for the night before our cruise. Room was nice. Clean room and bathroom. Bed was comfortable. Balcony was nice and had view of the cruise ships.

We stayed here after getting off a cruise ship, and were very surprised at what a perfect choice this was to stay in. It is located right near a lovely walking path along the beach, lined with shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is very plain wrap on the outside. But inside is very nice. There is a nice pool area. Rooms are modern, towels are great, staff is very nice, and the breakfast has many choices and has new things each morning and is served until 10:30am. It is close to the port and the airport.

ClaireWithLove, Germantown, MD 24/12/2019

Located about 15 - 20 minutes walk to the main Ft Lauderdale restaurant and bar area and only one building away from the beach, the hotel has a fun, modern, colorful beachy vibe. Rooms with a double bed had just enough room for walking around the bed with a chair and table in the corner. The microwave and fridge in the room make it convenient. Breakfast was really good with sausage and ham choices in addition to the two kinds of scrambled eggs. Fresh sliced fruit. Swimming pool with chairs and umbrella. Small waterfall and outside seating area to enjoy breakfast or a drink. Nice looking bar in the lobby. As a Best Western Rewards member, the two bottles of Glacier water, personalized chocolate bar and other snack were nice. Located about 5 minutes farther than the Renaissance hotel, it was a busy day getting into the cruise terminal area. It really should not have taken more than 20 minutes but it was 45 minutes to Terminal 25 (Celebrity) because of the back up.

What a great hotel! One block from the beach, actually saw a glimpse of the ocean from our balcony. We have stayed here in the past (2 yrs ago back), and they have renovated the rooms, lobby, etc. Super comfy beds and pillows, close to the cruise port (our reason for staying). Breakfast offered a great variety, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and spinach mixed in (the next morning was different), waffle maker, pancakes, fresh fruit, rolls muffins, hostess very nice. We had dinner in their bar, was so delicious (1/2 lb hamburgers & fries), other choices looked delicious as well. They have a nice outdoor pool. All staff were super friendly and helpful with questions etc. We would recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed.

laujust2017, Toronto, Canada 23/12/2019

We stayed 3 nights after a cruise here recently and loved our stay. Hotel is in a great location to the beach and one of the only few that has breakfast provided. For a young family of 4, the breakfast and beach access was highly convenient. The beach was only a 2 minute stroll that did not require crossing a street. Hotel accepted packages for us prior to our visit (small fee), has secured and accessible parking, and a nice balcony for each room. Hotel also accommodates cruisers very well because they take checked bags prior to check-in and offered our room earlier to the check-in time. Rooms were nice and clean with a fridge and microwave. Our only complaint is that housekeeping was slow. Our room was not attended to until after lunch and made for napping the kids a little tricky. All in all, would highly recommend

The clerk offered to hold on to my luggage and offered us breakfast. The hot breakfast was very generous. We waited two hours all together. Our room was clean and comfortable. I was able to do laundry for 1.50 a load. My daughter loved the pool. The beach had a play ground. I am booking here on my next Fort Lauderdale cruise. Thank you for everything.

The room had everything we needed but could have been cleaner. The curtains need washing and the bathroom needs updating. For what one pays for, I would have expected a more up-to-date room. The breakfast was better than the usual (had sliced tomatoes and fruit salad and plenty of other choices). Staff at breakfast was very helpful. The staff at the reception desk tried to help but they didn't have too much information about anything I asked about (the trolley that goes by, how to get the 500 "green" points, etc.). The pool area was nice and while one had to pay for it, it was good to have locked parking. The hotel is not on the beach but the beach is very close. The A/C worked very well and it was quiet at night, no problems sleeping.

There is a nice pool area as well as a sun deck. The hot breakfast buffet is excellent. There are eggs, meat, waffle machine, danish, cereals, coffee and juices. An easy walk to the beach or stroll down the sidewalk to restaurants and shops. There is a parking garage but you must pay to use it.

We arrived quite early for our 4pm check in (showed up at 8am!) and Maira the Front Desk Supervisor was extremely helpful. We got in our room quickly and upgraded to a wonderful suite!(THANK YOU). We stayed in room 104 which is literally 12' from the pool and just a few steps to the restaurant and breakfast area. The staff were all excellent to be around and made this trip quite enjoyable and stress free. Thanks again to all staff including restaurant and housekeeping. Great team in a wonderful hotel set in a terrific spot just steps to the beach.

An awesome place. Lots of choices for breakfast. The staff is great. They charge $21.40 per night for parking but no "resort fees." The nightly rate is better than other beach resorts. Right next to Lauderdale beach. A short walk to the Water Taxi which was an excellent way to travel. They even go to Hollywood Beach.

Its in a great location with about a 10-15 minute walk to the waterfront shops and stores where we had dinner and picked up a few supplies for the trip. The beach is actually located right behind the hotel...The complimentary breakfast had plentiful choices and the staff was great! I would definitely stay here again! Ft Lauderdale is a fun town with so much to do! Cant wait to come back!

Cruising-along, Lake Stevens, Washington 27/11/2019

After staying at several other hotels pre-cruise and post-cruise, I think I've found the hotel we'll be booking in Fort Lauderdale from now on. Yes it's older, but it's clean and comfortable, with a few extras that other pricier hotels don't have. HBO is included and the included breakfast has hot items besides the usual fruit, pastries, etc. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast all at the hotel. The day we checked in there was a terrific thunderstorm so we didn't feel like venturing out to other restaurants or the beach, which is nearby. The food and service in the restaurant are very good and plentiful. It was nice just to rest up before our flight home the next day. Our room was comfortable, with good A/C and a nice little couch in the corner to stretch out on. The only (slight) negative was the bathroom sink was really low. I'm 5'7" and had to bend way over just to wash my face. Other than that everything was great and we'll be staying there again.

Wanted to start our cruise stay by the water. Admittedly a limited ocean view but lovely just the same. As well the ocean air was fresh and inviting. Loved the location of this hotel. Extremely clean. Front desk was a little over worked but efficient and follow up is spectacular. Clearly customer satisfaction is something they take seriously. My only beef - no airport shuttle. And UBER left us waiting for a half an hour - the first driver was a no show who was stringing us along. Not appreciated after a 4 a.m. start and a desire to get to the hotel ASAP. Boo the Uber and a big Thank You to Jose with the Lexus of Uber for saving the day. By the way - hands down THE BEST SHOWER EVVVVEERRRr!!!!

JoyRadigan, Saint Charles, Missouri 10/11/2019

I did a lot of research to find where to stay for our trip and landed here. The pictures were nice, the hotel seemed clean and updated. The best way to describe what the hotel actually looks like is that they very cheaply renovated an old worn down place. We didn't see any bugs but I wouldn't have been surprised if we had. The overall experience was pretty grungy. Crooked light switches, toilets that only flush if you hold them all the way down for 10 seconds, chipping paint, carpet peeling up.. the list goes on. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and I did not sleep well at all. Definitely recommend bringing a pillow from home if you do stay here because theirs go flat when you lay on them and provide no support. The blankets and sheets felt like 100 pieces of paper sewn together.

This property was in an excellent location for our needs. We flew in to FLL to take a cruise leaving from Port Everglades the following day. This property was close to both.

The staff was very courteous and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. I only hope that they find some way to put me on a floor with an ice machine. That was the only downside of our stay.

The rooms are modest but its short walk to the beach made up for it. There were not very many restaurants within walking distance. We stayed pre-cruise and took a cab to from the airport and to the port. They do not have their own transportation to and from them.

I stayed for 3 nights on my own then joined by my daughter. The reception staff were so helpful and kind especially as my suitcase had gone missing at the airport and arrived 24 hours later. People staying at the hotel were very friendly and I enjoyed many a conversation in the swimming pool. It was not far to the beach and towels plus beach chairs were given out. Breakfast was great (as were the staff) and I found the location near bus stops and trolley stops even better My only disappointment was we had a connecting door in our room and we could hear the people next door, so left a towel on the floor to stop the noise. Our balcony room overlooked the pool and was great to sit out in the evening. A special thanks to Marissa, Aliyah and Maira on the front desk.

Dear Alexandra, Thank you for staying with us and for providing feedback. Maressa, Aliyah and Maira are great employees and I will definitely thank the front desk girls on your behalf.

From the get go this was not as promised. They advertised free shuttle to and from the airport Not so 25$. Had dinner there and it was burned. Still was made to pay for it even though they agreed it was over done!! Not helpful. Asked to speak to the manager, girls looked at each other and then ignored me. Very disappointed for a best western.

Dear Guest, Allow me to apologize for the issues mentioned, I must clarify that we do not advertise that we have a free shuttle because we do not.

We hd a fantastic holiday in fort lauderdale. Hotel was great. Location was very good, close walk to everything. Also bus and trolley ran frequently. Breakfast was great every single morning. Pool was never crowded. Lovely sundeck. But the best part of the stay was the lovely girl at the front desk. Maressa made us feel so welcomed. She went above and beyond to help us. I genuinely appreciate her thoughtfulness. Thank you so much.. Will definitely be recommending this hotel to friends and family..

gail_hible, Sheffield, United Kingdom 24/10/2019

Booked for 2 night stay on Beach in Ft Lauderdale. The location is good for the beach as just around the corner. Its a short walk (approx 10 - 15 mins) to all the bars and restaurants on the beach. The room was large and airy and had a small balcony - although it overlooked the back of the hotel next door, the car park and the main road. So not exactly a good view! They provide beach towels and breakfast A full breakfast is included with your booking The staff were really nice and helpful Parking - they have their own parking garage for the extortionate fee of $20 + tax per night. There is no on the road parking anywhere for free so you have to pay to park with them. I think $20 per night is really on top of the cost of the room.

Would highly recommend Very close to beach (walking distance) pool kept extremely clean. Can take bus right over bridge and do Happy Hour at some of the restaurants.

Catherine H, Charlestown, Rhode Island, United States 16/10/2019

We were only here for 1 night after a 10 night cruise. I unfortunately had sprained my ankle bad enough on the last day that I could not put any weight on it. When we arrived at the hotel (I was on crutches), my husband asked if they had a wheelchair that we could use - they did. They also accommodated us last minute by changing our room from a regular room to an accessible room to fit the wheelchair. I feel they went above and beyond. We waited there by the pool for most of the day waiting for our room to be ready, the bartender was amazing, she brought us food and drinks. My only complaint was when we left very early the next morning to catch a flight (6 am), the person who was at the desk could have cared less and it seemed like we were bothering her to check out. My husband had to manage me in a wheelchair and all our luggage (3 large suitcases plus his backpack), she didn't lift a finger to help at all, just watched him struggle. Not that it's her job to assist with that stuff but it would have been nice to have a little help, even just to push me outside in the chair.

"Surprisingly exceeded expectations"

Nikewoman, Hackensack, New Jersey 14/10/2019

I was hesitant to book this hotel at first but it somewhat exceeded my expectations. The room was decent and large, it included a safe, blow dryer, small fridge and a microwave. There was only two small drawers so we hung most of our stuff in the closet to give us room. We were situated on the sun deck so we had access to pool without going through hotel. There were also tables and chairs near the sliding doors which made it convenient to eat and drink near the room but not in the room. Staff was friendly, breakfast was fairly decent. It was enough to fill us up til lunchtime. There was no direct access to beach so you need to access it by walking out the front door and going around the next hotel or you can access the beach by exiting the garage and there was a small beach access between the hotel next doors two buildings. BW does not have any chairs or umbrellas on the beach like the other nearby hotels. We didn't spend too much time at beach for that reason and stayed at the pool most of time since they had lounge chairs and umbrellas located around the pool. I was a little taken back by the $20/day fee for parking. Wasn't made aware of this until mobile check in time. Hotel was within walking distance to the Jungle Queen and some other charter boats and jet skis so that was convenient.

"Friendly Staff, Large Room, and Very Teal"

TonyA56003, Houston, Texas 10/10/2019

The Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is a bargain for anyone wanting to stay near the beach but not having to pay resort prices. Staff were very friendly and helpful - special thanks to Lashanda Justin at the front desk for a quick check-in (with goody bag!) and chat - but custodial staff and dining area staff should also be commended. My room was large, with two comfortable king-sized beds (I traveled solo, on business), with mini-fridge, coffeemaker, flatscreen tv, balcony overlooking the pool, and microwave. The bathroom was also large, with a good shower and plenty of space on the sink for toiletries. The desk area was more than sufficient for working on my laptop. As the hotel is a bit older, some wear and tear is evident, but I saw nothing major. The color scheme is very South Florida - teal everywhere! The beachfront is right around the corner, and the hotel is also a fairly short walk to a few restaurants. Breakfast was complimentary and varied from day to day, with ham one day, black beans another, and hash browns on a third. The orange/mango juice is addictive. The only two issues I should note are (1) only one elevator services the five floors, so be patient especially if you have a lot of luggage, and (2) although the hotel itself has a restaurant a a few others are nearby, most of the restaurants and shops are at least a mile away, so either be prepared to walk or drive. Overall, despite the slight wear and tear, I'd definitely staff there again on a business trip.

louisefos1, Staines, United Kingdom 05/10/2019

Stayed in this hotel a few times before and always loved it. Great location, good breakfast and nice pool area and rooms This time however I checked in and the lady behind the desk was miserable and rude. Then when I went to bed at 11.30pm after a nice evening out in fort Lauderdale I got into bed to then discover blood in the bed after I fully untucked the sheets , luckily there are two double beds so just switched beds. The management were great the next day dealing with it and gave us a full refund on our room. Upon checking out I used the toilet in reception , there was no sign on the door to say it was shut , the cleaner was cleaning one of the toilets and had a go at me for stepping in there. Would stay again but not happy with this experience.

I love staying at the BW Ocean Plus! It is the only hotel, on the beach that is affordable. The breakfast is included and is always great! The staff is always friendly and helpful. The hotel is also within walking distance to the Fort Lauderdale Beach park and shops and a quik drive to Las Olas Blvd. The only thing that would set this hotel apart from others surrounding it would be if parking was included in your reservation instead of a seperate, daily fee.

VBALLSK, Winnipeg, Canada 19/09/2019

Sales Manager Jenna was awesome from the first email and went above what we have experienced at other hotels to make our group feel welcome. We had 2 teams competing at the Broward County Convention Center and this was the perfect location to stay. A few steps to the beach, a couple blocks to restaurants, and with a bus pass, less than a 5 minute ride on the #40 bus to the Convention Center. The hotel delivers a clean and very comfortable room, (staff was excellent and they asked everyday about the cleanliness). Without question the best breakfast anywhere and long breakfast hours which is a must with 26 teenagers who need to be prepared to compete multiple times a day. Unfortunately during our stay a major water main break left the property without water. Jenna again went above and beyond to help us secure a great rate at another property for the night and when we returned the next day, things were perfect. Will be back next time we compete in Fort Lauderdale.

"Very excellent deal"

Susan C, Auburn 17/09/2019

We had a room with an overview of the pool and deck chairs just for us. I ate at the bar and had a drink, they were both very good. The only negative is that often hotels smell like mold or must since it is on the coast. After smelling the initial cleaning smells, I didn't even notice it. I had stayed there 8 years before and am very glad that I came back to it. Is a good location to the beach and the restaurants.

Betsaroo, Oswego NY 13/09/2019

This is a nice hotel. The beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are large and shower has lots of water pressure. The double queen, sundeck room we had was a little small so if you are staying for more than a couple of days or with more than 2 people that might pose a problem. The sundeck was great for relaxing and enjoying a cup of coffee (or other adult beverages). The breakfast was really good with a nice variety of options. Check in was quick and easy (we actually were able to check in 3 hours early). All the staff was friendly. Park is $21/day and the garage is adjacent to the building. It is kind of small and tight so if there are a lot of visitors with cars it may become difficult to navigate. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Since 10 days we go from hotel to hotel and always look for price range between 100 and $150 a night, this one has the best quality for the price. Very closed to the beach. Good breakfast with waffles. Parking for our car, not free, but very sheep (15$) compared to the 40/45$ they all asked around. Good choice!

We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise. It is fairly close to the airport and cruise terminal. We were able to walk to dinner at a restaurant near the beach. The hotel staff is very accommodating and friendly. Our room was simple but we weren't looking for anything fancy. The breakfast set up is convenient and worked well for us prior to departing for the cruise terminal. I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend!

"Poor customer service"

Andrea S, Bay City, Michigan 18/08/2019

Our overall stay wasn't terrible, we just won't be staying there again. Cons: I called this hotel prior to our stay to see if parking was included if we are registered guests. I got confirmation from the location it was included. Upon check-in i was told it is not and it would be $16. I spoke with a supervisor and she would not waive. I even showed the morning manager my phone call history of the direct number I called and to confirm the info. We also asked for our water bottles to be filled at the bar and she literally poured luke warm tap water in them and treated us as an inconvenience. Pros: The fan in our room wouldn't turn on and the maintenance man quickly came and determined it needed to be replaced and offered to change our rooms. We told him jot to bother because it was too much trouble with our kids, but he got us the room next door and helped us move everything over. The breakfast had a nice variety and the employee assisting was extremely helpful and friendly. The location is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 10 to some really great restaurants.

Dear Guest, We do apologize that your stay with us was not enjoyed. Allow me to apologize on behalf of the entire staff for this, apparently there was mis-communication before your arrival which caused confusion at the check-in in regards to parking prices.

Save your money!! Rudest staff I have ever encountered and refuse to resolve issues or refund money. Matter of fact, refused to even let us speak to management. With so many choices in Fort Lauderdale and staffs willing to go above and beyond, why settle for subpar and ignorance!!! Will NEVER recommend this or any other Best Western hotel to family and friends!!!! Change your staff and policies if you plan to stay in buisness.

Trevienne B, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, responded to this review
Dear Rosie McGrath, We appreciate your feedback, to clarify you spoke to the manager whom informed you of the policies. Your perception of our hotel and it's staff cannot be changed after the encounter we had, however, please note each Best Western is independently owned and operated and therefore all have different policies. We try our best to accommodate each guest that chooses our location and our customer service is nothing less than excellent. Unfortunately policies are not altered or changed for one individual guest, it is in your best interest next time you book a hotel to review cancellation polices before completing your booking.

We requested a room with a fridge and stove top but our room had a fridge and microwave because we wanted to be on the high floor w best view. Its close to the beach & very clean. Breakfast is okay but nothing special. The breakfast area is clean and the staff quick and courteous. If you don't care that you don't have close access to major grocery and liquor stores, it is lovely. We just used uber to get around.

As always had no problems while staying here (otherwise I wouldn't keep returning LOL). Staff always friendly and many have been there for a few years as I recognized them from past visits. i did notice a few small differences that can be easily addressed. At the pool, there were only 2 umbrellas for about 10 lounge chairs. There used to be about 5. There also used to be a water cooler outside by the pool and soft music playing in the background. None of these things ruined or took away from my stay but when you stay somewhere every year, you look forward to certain things. Also food did not seem to have the same quality as in past visits. Room clean as always and all staff were friendly.

Hotel was older but clean and a solid value. Rooms looked to been redone recently and if a good clean room at a good value is what your looking for then this is a good place.

The moment I checked in, during my three night stay, and as I checked out--everything was wonderful. The room, the bed, the bathroom, etc. were all very well cleaned each day of my stay. Part of my stay was during the boil water advisory. I was given 3 bottles of water upon check in and strongly encouraged to use them to brush my teeth. On the second day, I asked for another bottle. A front desk staff member said the advisory was lifted and they were now charging for the water but I was still given one with no hesitation. The five different employees I came in contact with were courteous and proud to help with suggestions or questions I had. Breakfast was plentiful and well presented each day. The pool area seemed small since many guests were there but it was still refreshing to spend some time there. Food I ordered at the bar/restaurant was well prepared and served with a genuine smile. I'm very happy with every aspect of my stay there! I'd certainly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning next year. Management take note: you have a great crew working for you!

T C, Evansville, Indiana 19/07/2019

We arrived around 9pm. Check in service was very quick. Lobby was crowded with people going to/from the pool. Since there were no restaurants within a block we decided to eat in the restaurant in the lobby. The service there was also quick, we had two appetizers. Our room was on the second floor, end of hallway. This area was very quiet. There was an elevator on our end and a exit door to a balcony but still very little noise. Our king bed was very comfortable. Room was exceptionally clean. The next day we ate the free hot breakfast, which was excellent. Many hot items to choose from along with some tasty fruit. After breakfast we walked the block behind the hotel to the beach. Had a nice walk on the beach before departing. Check out was 11pm. We left around 1045pm for the cruise port. Loved the hotel. Will definitely stay there again.

This was a last minute decision & I was extremely satisfied with their service. I called around 10pm & by 1045 I was all checked in & enjoying the comfy bed. Breakfast was more than expected.

Not just muffins & bagels .Waffles,eggs,bacon, etc. I will certainly go back but it has to be for more than 1 night So I can take full advantage of all they have to offer.

Location is awesome. The beach is not really THERE, but is really close, in a very short walking distance. The hotel is apparently going through some renovations, but it is already well fit. Breakfast is very good, and together with the pool are definitely the hotel´s highest points. The rooms are very cozy and well decorated. Maybe because of the beach proximity, the smell is not a perfumed experience. In my opinion, using carpet in the rooms on those situations is not the best choice. We had problem with the first room, that had a broken A/C that dripped on the carpet and left a terrible smell. After we warned the staff about it, they rapidly moved us to another one with the same characteristics of our reservation, as soon as one became available. They were helpful, but no compensation whatsoever was made to us. Not even an apology for the inconvenience. I guess that´s the Best Western way of automatized working. The price was fair and a great bang for the buck. Oh.. Parking is not complimentary, but was very good, inside the propriety. And they allow parcels and packages to be delivered to you there, without extra charges. Also, they can safely store your bags (I didn´t use that service to evaluate it, but saw people doing it with smiley faces.. )

Our family of four stayed here on our last night in Ft. Lauderdale and it was a wonderful experience. After having been overcharged elsewhere for shoddy rooms, or for nice rooms but shoddy service, we couldn't believe that Best Western gave us so much for our money- a big room, a comfy bed, a nice pool, a good breakfast, and the best service we received anywhere in Florida. People were friendly and helpful. Proximity to the beach is excellent too! :-)

Stayed for 6 nights, good hotel. Room we had overlooked the pool area with a small balcony. Room was a good size and had everything we needed. Enjoyed the breakfast good choice each morning and a friendly smile too. Easy walk to the beach and promenade. We didn't have a car which would be useful at Fort Lauderdale but made use of the buses, route 40 stops outside the hotel. Helpful to have guest coin laundry machines which we made use of.

Stayed at this hotel a few days ago. We booked it last minute as we were let down by our friends we were supposed to stay with. I knew exactly the position it was as we have stayed near there. It was 2 minutes from the beach but you need a car to go out to explore. We had a double room which was a good size. The front staff were very obliging and we had to get beach towels from them and they said we could have as many as we wanted. The breakfast was good and the pool was a decent size. There was a bar with a great barman Nico . Also there was a restaurant and the food was quite good and reasonably priced.

Great Location within walking distance of The Beach and several really nice restaurants and a short drive to Markets and Strip Malls. So close to the action it is better to leave your car parked there rather than try to find a spot 1 mile down Seabreeze Blvd which has a constant stream of cars going very slow, you can walk faster. Lots of scooters and bikes to rent for the short distance to the restaurants. The rooms were very nice and had a patio with chairs. My only Less than Excellent comment is that I prefer a softer bed, but I still slept well.

"Great location"

User 03/06/2019

This is a great location! Close to the beach, walking to shopping & restaurants. The gentleman security guard in the front lobby was especially helpful & recommended 2 great restaurants. We ate at both! Property is clean, breakfast is very good. Layout of room seemed a bit awkward, but we enjoyed having a sitting room. Room smelled damp & musty, but we're from the desert, so maybe all of Florida smells this way? LOL.

"Horrible Experience in Florida"

Paradise04301306869, Los Angeles, California 28/05/2019

This was such a horrible stay and an even more horrible experience! We checked in here on a road trip to Florida keys and as we stopped over to get rest the property just was not at all with anyone should expect from a Best Western plus the service from the jump was very poor very inconsistent very unprofessional. there were multiple cleanliness issues inside of the room they claim to be sold out and did not switch our room and as a result of that our baby ended up finding a pill and had it in his mouth. we spoke to management no one cared enough to even come upstairs and grab the pill no one ever asked if the baby was okay no one ever asked if we were okay no one ever cared all they cared about was money they wanted us to pay for our stay they told us that they would comp both nights as a result of the issue keeping us up all night preventing us from getting any amount of rest due to watching the baby throughout the night! When we went to check out the property manager and the front desk manager laughed at us when we inquired about the missing refund. The front desk manager and the property manager were very rude and dismissive and called the police on us and lied saying we were being aggressive at the front desk. I have a video of the entire experience, which will prove to local law enforcement that they are bold faced liars. They do not need to be employed by any hospitality company. Never stay at this property unless you are white and old.

I rented 2 rooms for my daughter and her friends for prom weekend. Love that this hotel is so close to the beach that you can walk. Also close to restaurants. The staff was amazing. They suggested great spots for pictures before the girls went to prom. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We took a somewhat impromptu trip and we're so happy that we decided to stay here! The rooms are clean, staff is friendly, and the location was amazing! The pool was really clean and a nice break from the ocean. We have to acknowledge their PM bartender, Nico!!! He was wonderful and we really enjoyed his company! He was personable and friendly. His recommendations were on point too! We would absolutely recommend staying at this hotel and it will be our go to in the future as well!

This hotel is very nice and I would recommend it to anybody to stay there. The hotel is clean, the rooms are a bit small if you are travelling with a family, but they do have a fridge and microwave in the room. The Air conditioner is a bit noisy during the night so don't be surprised. The beach is very close to the hotel. Be aware of the high cost for getting a beach chair and umbrella. Not cheap. It cost us for 2 chairs and an umbrella $57 US. Staff are friendly and the breakfast overall was good. Hotel is using too much plastic instead of real dishes, so not very environmentally friendly.

"Decent "

MarkF935, Nottingham, United Kingdom 02/05/2019

Small, quiet and friendly hotel around 100m from the great beach. Free breakfast is pretty good and varies daily, but always something for everyone. Bar food is really good and well priced as are the drinks. A small, but normally quiet pool and sun deck area that gets the sun all day. Rooms are clean and beds comfy. Bars and restaurants an easy 10 min walk away along the beach. Small gym with 4 pieces of CV and a free weights/bench. Rose, who's on the bar most days, is great and has top local recommendations.

"Best Western Minus?"

spock_10, Brecon, United Kingdom 28/04/2019

We stayed here on Friday 26th April 2019 before taking a cruise ship from the nearby cruise terminal. We had expected a good class stay associated with the BW+ product. However we arrived to find the builders making significant changes, and a lot of noise! The Reception Manager explained that the works were so that we had a "better experience next time" -WHAT?. Apparently this hotel is changing its affiliation and becoming a Marriott - so they didn't care? Well that's the impression we got. Our room, 512 with single King Bed was clean enough, but the furniture was visible tatty - so no maintenance because of the change? Breakfast was up to standard and the internal corridors seemed newly carpeted. Getting to the cruise port is expensive s the Hotel sells the shuttle at $12.00 per person. We returned our car to the airport and took a taxi for $15.00 including tip. It's annoying to meet such a dismissive attitude from the reception staff, when my way of dealing with the situation would have been to advise customers of the disruption prior to booking, and then to soften the disruption with an event. Would we stay here again, or use a hotel chain that puts customers higher up the scale?

OneLMicheleM, Visalia, California 17/04/2019

We stayed here for the Tortuga Music Festival- so on the positive side, it's right next door which was very convenient. The pool area was nice as was the lobby breakfast area. Not so nice was the actual room. It was very musty smelling and the bathroom was dirty and shabby. Chunks out of door that were sloppily patched. The back of the door had stains that were not cleaned. The tile on the floor was also dirty. The bed was probably the worst I've ever “slept” in - rock hard with no give at all. The cleaning staff in the parking garage were screaming at each other with no regard for guests in the area. I don't like leaving bad reviews but this hotel needs to do much better in the cleanliness department and professionalism of their staff. Get some decent beds too. For the prices you charge, especially around Tortuga, I expected better.

Choose location for reasonable price. Used one night before and one night after cruise. Pleased. Rooms clean and updated. Staff helpful and friendly. Kept luggage as we arrived by plane early first visit. Check in time is not till 3. It is located among lots of condos. Not directly on beach. You do have to walk to get to beach. Restaurants and stores are also a good walk away. It worked for us for a cruise

jenLeCreate, Vista, California 09/04/2019

After booking our vacation to Florida, needed to adjust our trip to see some music in Fort Lauderdale and booked BW Plus Oceanside Inn to stay the night in Ft. Lauderdale. Although we had never been to Ft Lauderdale, we have stayed at a number of Best Westerns and this one did not disappoint. We passed the entry for the hotel the first time around but turned around farther up. Plenty of parking located in underground garage. Hotel is located near the beach (but not right on it) - small walk to it. Walking into the lobby, we were immediately greeted by some of the nicest people that we have ever met (and she was the supervisor helping out as it was busy). Checked us in and saw that we were BW members and gave us a small bag. For that day as well as the next whenever she saw us was always happy to help - doesn't this lady get a day off? All the people that we came across were very friendly. Room was very clean - we had a room with a common area patio overlooking the pool which wasn't as noisy as we thought it would be. Classic BW room w/ small frig etc. After we checked in, we went for a walk along the sidewalk by the beach and just relaxed after our drive. Short walk from shops and restaurants. Went to the show, came back late - had a good sleep (bed was comfortable) and enjoyed the breakfast - there were even some vegan items for us which sometimes is challenging it seems for places. Breakfast room open, airy and pretty large - enough seats for all as it seemed like the hotel was pretty full. And of course, the same lady with the smile checked us out. Add free parking, relatively quiet location and good price - what are you waiting for? If we come back to Ft Lauderdale, would definitely come here again.

The hotel is within about a mile to several eating places. The beach is nearby but during our stay it was closed to get ready for a music festival. The rooms are pretty much average. The front desk is not all that friendly. Check in is at 3 but you can store your luggage. The breakfast is at 7 and in the past has been good but we had an early checkout and did not use this time, did not even get a cup of coffee. I'm still looking for something better on our next trip. Location and BW Rewards are the only reason I stayed here again.

I recently stayed one night at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn prior to a cruise. The hotel is clearly an older hotel that was renovated, but they did a good job overall. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Service was pretty good considering how busy the hotel was (March Break). And finally, location location location!! The property has a direct access to the beach and is about 15 min walk from restaurants and touristy area. I would definitely consider going back.

I do not recommend staying at this hotel. The pool was FREEZING although it's advertised as heated. Staff wouldn't turn on the heater when asked.

Hotel room was just as any other hotel. Nothing special and nothing to complain about. The nice part was the balcony with a view to the pool. What was disappointing was that the elevator was not working. There was this lady in the lobby complaining that she cannot get in her room since her husband I believe was in a wheelchair but there was no one to help her out. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. Just to add, its a bit pricey for what you really get there.

falladina, Vancouver, Canada 25/03/2019

My family has been coming to stay at the Best Western in Ft. Lauderdale because it lives up to its name. It is simply the best. The hotel manager, Carolina has been the manager there for nearly 20 years and she does an outstanding job to ensure that the needs of her guests are met. You can tell that the staff really like working there because they have been there for a long time. Because of her excellent and superior service, the staff are committed to providing the best possible experience for guests. There are too many names to mention but everyone was excellent including the front desk staff; the breakfast staff, housekeepers, baggage storage, and bar servers. We went during Spring Break and it was extremely busy with so many kids. Nevertheless, Carolina and her staff still managed to keep the place looking immaculate. I just truly love her style and approach. She, Tee, and everyone else made us feel that we were family. The place is also very close to the beach yet off the beaten path for you to enjoy peace and quiet. I strongly urge everyone to visit this place and stay here for the mere pleasure of being served by Carolina and her staff. I plan to visit this hotel for many years to come. Thank you so much for being you.

Have stayed at this hotel once before a cruise. It is handy to the beach and pier and I appreciate the breakfast buffet. I realize that check in is at 3 pm, but it would be considerate if a little leeway was allowed, as airline arrivals are not always exact. We have stayed at other hotels that got us into a room an hour early. We travel from Ma., I am 80, and was exhausted but we had to lock up our luggage and walk around Spring Break for a couple of hours. I'm sure at least one room was open. Your desk staff is very young and maybe not experienced with good customer service.

User 15/03/2019

The location and breakfast is pretty good, but the staff is absolutely awful. The front desk people are absolutely awful. From making up charges on our accounts to treating us like trash because we're on spring break (charging us an extra $100 deposit and constantly threatening to not refund it, making us return to the room after checkout to consolidate all our trash even though we piled it together since we weren't given a bag, of course being threatened with our deposits, and many other rude scenarios), the front desk staff literally ruined my day at both check in and check out because the entire time I felt like I was being scammed out of money. We paid the same amount as other travelers not on spring break, yet we were treated like children they were trying to get as much money as possible out of. They wouldn't even let us leave the hotel before they sent someone up to check every inch of our room to make sure they couldn't take away our deposits. Maintenance people would knock on doors sometimes as early as 7:30-8 AM, waking us up constantly as they made their way down the hall since literally everyone was like no come back later. Being woken up that early on vacation is less than ideal and was really aggravating when you could hear it throughout the entire hall. It was absolutely embarrassing for Best Western and I will NEVER be back at any on of their hotels, whether I'm on spring break or not.

Stayed here twice before and after our cruise; the bathrooms are still small. Going home I foolishly left me tablet in our room.

_royviv2010, Sheffield, United Kingdom 14/03/2019

This hotel lives up to the Best Western high standards. The staff were all very friendly, with some of them asking us overseas visitors about where we came from. The food and accommodation was first rate. They try their best to keep the Spring Breakers under control. On one night I complained about blaring music at 2am from a nearby room and they acted immediately. I would definitely go here again, but NOT in Spring, with a very small minority of Spring Breakers ruining other people's experience. I know this isn't the hotel's fault and they're very strict with them, but be warned if you like your sleep and avoid Fort Lauderdale at this time!!

We stayed here upon arriving in Florida for our Caribbean cruise the next day.The room was wonderfully spacious and clean. The lobby/bar/breakfast area and pool are all bright and modern. The staff were very helpful and provided us with the local info we needed for our stay.

Stayed at Best Western Oceanside Inn prior to the start of our Caribbean Cruise. All staff were extremely nice and friendly. Our non-smoking two queen bed room overlooking the pool was very clean. Inn location was perfect with a casual walk to the beach along the Fort Lauderdale strand. Included daily full buffet breakfast with a variety of choices both hot and cold was excellent. Besides the reasonable rates the Inn has NO RESORT FEES!

We stayed at Best Western Oceanside Inn as a part of the stopover during our cruise vacation in February 2019. The hotel is less than 15 minutes from airport and cruise terminal. The hotel is right next to the beach, main boardwalk, water taxi and all restaurants. The place is very conveniently located to all main attractions. We were a group of 15 people.We stayed on fifth floor and had partial ocean view. The rooms are cozy and very clean. Hotel has a nice outdoor pool, bar and restaurant. The hotel provides sumptuous hot breakfast. The staff is extremely helpful. Hotel manager Carolina Bello went above and beyond to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. She is very pleasant, knowledgeable about the area and eager to help. She and her staff were constantly checking on guests to make sure that they were comfortable. The place is a hidden gem tucked in midst of all the expensive high rise hotels and condominiums. If you are looking for excellent customer service and great location, Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is worth your attention...!!

Having never been to this location or city, the parking was confusing. The help was NOT very clear has to how it all worked, but eventually we figured it out on our own. The room was spacious and clean, though the view only has a corner view of the ocean, so be sure to get a room with a full ocean view if that is what you are looking for. The restaurant/bar had delicious tacos. The full breakfast offers enough choices for the pickiest of eaters. As a BW rewards member, I have been to better BWs.

NeverTraveledEnough, West Palm Beach, Florida 18/02/2019

Stayed at this BW hotel last year for the A1A Marathon and turned out they still had a room (the last one) available for a very reasonable price when I was looking for rooms for this year's race. The hotel was only a 20min Uber ride from the start of the race and a 1/4 mile from the finish which was great when having to get back to the hotel after running the race. The front desk staff at check-in were a little 'business like' although the staff at checkout were very friendly. The room was very clean with comfortable beds and also had a TV fridge, microwave and coffee maker in it. The microwave was a bit on the noisy side due to the tray not turning properly, but it did its job. My only real gripe was that they would only extend the checkout time from 11am to noon and that this info did not appear to have been passed on to house keeping since they knocked on the door several times to see if we had checked out yet. If I can, I will definitely stay at this BW hotel for next ear's race.

"Nice hotel for pre-cruise stay"

User 17/02/2019

I flew from MN to FLL the day before a cruise and stayed at the Best Western Oceanside Inn. I had a 2 queen bedroom with a small balcony & paid $292.96 for 4 people. I was pleasantly surprised that it was ready when I arrived before noon. The hotel was a little musty smelling, but not bad, and we were happy with how clean it was. It had a pool (no hot tub though) and a restaurant. There are signs by the pool area saying that no outside food/drinks are allowed, however I had pizza delivered from a nearby restaurant and was able to sit at a poolside table without anyone saying this wasn't acceptable. The hotel staff were pleasant, giving us advice and toiletries. There was a nice breakfast selection of hot & cold food (yogurt, cereal, waffles, bacon, eggs, fruit, etc). The beach was a short walk away and it was a fairly easy walk to restaurants & a CVS. We ate at the Drunken Taco restaurant which had yummy food, but was a bit pricey (no free chips/salsa). This hotel I felt was an economical choice that was easy Uber drive from the airport & cruise port and close to the beach. I'd stay here again.

Officerdee, Edinburgh 15/02/2019

We have just returned from a 7-night break at the Best Western Plus Oceanview. We were allocated a 4th floor corner room. It had a dual aspect floor to ceiling windows which gave a great view to the south west harbour area where you could watch the cruise ships enter and leave the Port, the view towards north gave you a view of the Marina and Ocean Boulevard. There was a small balcony with two chairs and a table, which was nice because it provided fresh air into the room rather than always relying on the air con. Also nice to sit out a watch the sun set. The room was well appointed, clean and had everything you would expect from a 3.5 star facility. The bathroom was clean, the towels and sheets were like new and there were always ample towels and toiletries. From front of house, to bar and housekeeping all the staff were pleasant, helpful and professional. The Hotel has ample underground parking which at $15 a day was reasonable compared to other options nearby. Breakfast was included and was the usual attire of a selection or hot and cold options, with toast cereals and fruit etc. we only used it a couple of times but it was also well stocked, clean and plenty staff on duty to assist when required. The Bar which is situated within the hotel lobby was well stock with spirts and beers in cans (no draft). We didn't eat within the bar area, but the food being served looked well cooked and decent portion size and I never heard anyone complain. The pool area was very nice getting the sun from early morning through to sunset. Ample chairs, sunbeds, table and umbrellas. The area immediately around the hotel was quiet with the main area of restaurants, bars and beach are only a few minutes walk away, which was nice because you were away from a lot of traffic and live music etc. All in we had a great time at this hotel and would certainly consider staying here again. It took about 15 minutes to drive from the airport and even less time if your were staying over after or before taking a cruise. The only thing which I noticed which would have made a significant improvement would have been to have the corridor carpets shampooed, I appreciate light carpets must be a nightmare to keep clean but first impressions do count.

We stayed here one night before our cruise. Nice staff and clean rooms. They have a very good breakfast with plenty of seating. Our favorite part was getting beers and excellent burgers from the bar and eating by the pool. Great staff at the bar and grill! We will always choose this Best Western for our pre cruise stay.

Although the hotel is well positioned it leaves a lot to be desired. The room was spacious but very basic and I truly hope that my husband and I never have to endure another breakfast that was served at the hotel. Plastic knives and forks on paper plates and the food mimicked the cutlery and crockery. I have given this hotel 2 stars purely for its position.

The Best Western Plus was a great hotel to stay at for a few days prior to taking a cruise. The location is ideal. The hotel is only a few minutes drive away from both the airport and Port Everglades, and a quick three minute walk to the beach (depending on your pace). The complimentary buffet breakfast was really good! I must admit, some websites only rated this hotel as a 2.5-star hotel, so I was a bit apprehensive about staying here. However, I am so glad I did! I would stay here again.

This hotel is way overpriced and outdated! The rooms are small and dirty and our room had a very strange fish smell! It was such a terrible smell. The bathroom was disgusting...they painted over the dust and dirt on the baseboards! It was so dirty and gross. We changed our reservation to one less night and were told it was fine; however we got charged for that night. When we left we put our keys in the “express checkout” container and left. Now management is saying because we never “physically came to the front desk and checked out” they are going to charge us for the extra night. ????? Why didn't the lady at the front desk not tell us this and why do they have an express checkout box for the keys? The service at the restaurant is terrible...we got half our food and without exaggerating waited another full hour for the last burger. Apparently the “no smoking” signs mean nothing as other guests were smoking everywhere. Would not recommend this place — way nicer cleaner places just a few blocks away for less money. This place is so dirty and outdated.

I stayed at the Best Western Oceanside Inn for several nights while traveling on business. This was my third time staying at this hotel. My wife and infant daughter joined me on part of the first part of the stay. Before we even got to the room, the hotel staff had brought up a roll-away crib for us to use. We had a room with a nice balcony that looked out over the pool. Our room was quiet, even though the hotel was busy the entire stay. The hotel has a great free breakfast, with options that change slightly every morning. There is convenient parking at the hotel for a small fee. The best part is that it's a two minute walk to the beach. Makes it a convenient place to stay if you want to get up and watch the sunrise or catch a little sun in the sand! I will most likely stay here again while traveling on business.

User 23/01/2019

Room was large and clean. Bathroom was massive! My husband and 2 daughters, ages 11 & 14, stayed overnight after a cruise. We were all very impressed. The only thing that kept me from rating 5 stars was check in. When I booked this hotel, I requested an early check in and explained we would be arriving from port in late morning. I also called a week ahead of our scheduled check in date and the hotel representative confirmed an early check in request. We arrived around 10-10:30 am. Long-story short, it took about 3 hours to actually get in the room. They did store our large suitcases in a closet near the lobby while we waited. That was the only negative part of the entire experience. Oh, and the super-slow elevator...it should be updated. The front desk staff seemed nice and helpful. The food from the bar was great; we didn't eat in the bar area, just took it up to our room to enjoy. The hotel is within walking distance to the beach and some restaurants and a public park area. My daughters and I spent several hours on the beach. There are at least 10 volleyball nets set up for public use....just remember to bring your own ball or buy one while you are there. There were a lot of people playing volleyball, some even bring their own nets and set them up. It was a great area for families. We walked to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co for dinner and hit a small shop nearby. Breakfast in the morning was nice. They offered turkey sausage and ham, eggs, waffles, pastries, cereal, fruit, etc. Lots of beverage options. All in all, it was a great experience and we would stay again.

ZackG, Holland, Michigan 22/01/2019

We felt for what we paid this was a good value. We arrived late the night before our cruise and had no problems with check-in. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had an issue with a fire alarm battery and maintenance had the issue resolved in less than 5 minutes, which was greatly appreciated. There was a buffet for breakfast with good amount of seating. The food as mentioned in many reviews was definitely better than most hotel breakfasts. The pool looked clean and the pool area had plenty of seating, although we didn't get a chance to use it. The hotel was a quick 5 minute uber from FLL Airport and a quick 5 minute uber to the cruise port, so this is a great spot if you are cruising. We would definitely stay here again!

We spent 2 nights here before getting on our cruise on Dec 17. The hotel has had some renos since we last stayed there. Rooms have been perked up, breakfast room, some fresh paint, new colours. The best part of this hotel is the location. So close to the beach, restaurants, shopping, and cruise ship terminal. We had a room near the pool, we enjoyed the pool deck and sitting in the sun and the lounge chairs. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Big thanks for 2 excellent nights.

Very friendly and close to the beach, room was great and the service from all staff seemed to go beyond the call to ensure everyone was looked after, although I didn't use the pool you could tell that it was a great spot based on all the smiles and people hanging out, would I go back, absolutely and hope to while I'm waiting for the next cruise ship. The menu could use a few healthier choices but the food was good.

My wife and I have chosen to stay at the Best Western Oceanside for many years. We continue to patronize this hotel because of the positive experiences that we have encountered. First of all, we have never been disappointed by the welcoming and helpful front desk staff. After a long day's travel, it's really nice to be greeted by "nice people" at the front desk.Secondly, the physical facility meets our personal needs. The breakfast room, and pool are really great facilities for visiting tourists.Thirdly, our room has always been clean, - particularly the bathroom.Our only recommendation for facility improvement is to upgrade and enlarge the fitness centre. It's very inadequate for me.Finally, the BW Oceanside is conveniently located near Fort Lauderdale beach. It's really a nice and inviting location. I have never felt unsafe or intimidated by the location of this hotel.

When looking for a hotel, we always start with this chain. Our past experiences have always been good and this location did not disappoint! We stayed at this hotel after our cruise as it was near the beach and great restaurants and shops. Our room wasnt ready when we arrived so we sat at the lobby bar, had a few drinks and had a nice chat with Rose who was tending bar. What a wonderful lady! Very warm and hospitable, gave us a few suggestions for dinner and looked after everyone else that were waiting for their rooms as well. Our rooms were nicely appointed. 2 dbl beds, good size bathroom and closet space. There was an iron, ironing board and hairdryer. The beds were sooo comfy with lots of pillows. The room was clean, bright and airy. There was a balcony which was nice to sit and have your morning coffee which was complimentary. Our stay included hot and cold breakfast which included, real eggs, (scrambled and boiled), ham, bacon, cereals, pastries, fruit, breads and a yogurt machine. Plentiful and delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Rose and the other staff were great and we would definitely return if in the area!

Scott R, Isanti, United States 08/01/2019

the staff and the facillities were excellent. we had a very pleasant experience. even the waiting lounge was spacious and welcoming. We only had two warnings based on the filters we used to find the hotel on Expedia/priceline. 1) when I confirmed they had an airport shuttle, they said yes. However, if you try to use it, they ask for $28. An Uber is half that. 2) they claimed to be beachside, but it doesn't even have a view of the beach. The beach is a very short walk in one of two directions (three buildings away), but it wasn't quite as advertised. Having said this, the staff bent over backwards to help us with any issue we have and were always smiling and courteous.

"Great little place"

User 08/01/2019

We stayed here for a few days during Christmas Week 2018. It's a 1960's hotel that's been updated and is very lovely. People are friendly, Hotel is very clean. Pool area nice. Breakfast is good. Great location near the beach with some good restaurants in all price ranges walkable. What earned the fifth star which I almost never give is...believe it not...toilet paper. I stay in probably 40 hotels in a year, from budget to luxury. They all have the worst scratchiest toilet paper. Not this place. They have the good stuff. So book this place and enjoy!

"Disappointed - filthy"

User 07/01/2019

We were very disappointed in this hotel. We travel a lot for pleasure and business and this was the filthiest place we've ever stayed, at any price. We had room 102 facing the pool. We paid over $600 for 3 non-refundable nights. Parking was $15 per day. See pictures below. Cons: - Floors, walls, light switches, and rug were filthy. - Shower walls had mold growing in the grout - They didn't give us washcloths the last night so we had to use hand towels to bathe with - halls and parking garage were dirty. -no washcloths left on our last night so we had to use hand towels to bathe with Pros: - not on beach, but very close to a very nice large one and you don't have to cross the street to get to it. - beds seemed clean - breakfast was typical - pool was nice We wore flip-flops in the room to keep our feet off the dirty floors and rug. Room was non refundable so we were stuck staying there. Wouldn't recommend.

"Great location near beach, updated rooms, great after a cruise, needs a hot tub"

Live4VacationTrips, Fort Collins, Colorado 02/01/2019

We stayed here for one night after a cruise. We arrived early, and the front desk immediately stored our luggage and offered us breakfast! Breakfast was good and not crowded late morning. Very welcoming. The pool is nice but is closed at dusk in the winter. There was no hot tub. This hotel is located very nearly on the beach, so it's easy to walk the beach without paying for a property directly on the beach. The balconies are spacious and at least ours (4th floor) had a nice view over the pool.

Dear Guest, Thanks for the five star review of our hotel. Most of our guests are early arrivals, mainly because of the majority of cruise arrivals that flow into our hotel. We do try our best to accommodate each guest as we do understand that the wait for check-in can be lengthy. It was our pleasure to serve you and thank you for recognizing our efforts. We hope you visit us again soon. Trevienne Barrett, Front Office Manager

"Not beachfront, nor oceanside"

PDeCampers, San Diego, California 31/12/2018

This year I planned for our family to meet up at your hotel. We flew in from San Diego but we got stuck in Chicago airport for 10 hours on Christmas Day! We immediately called to see if we could cancel just the first night (as we had 3 rooms booked for 4 nights) and they wouldn't even offer us a small penalty fee, they said that since it was after 3pm we had to pay the full room charge. Even though we couldn't have called as we were on a flight from San Diego-and did not foresee getting stranded in Chicago. We arrived at 2am and had to get an additional hotel room by at the airport for $200. When we arrived to the best western plus Oceanside they insisted we be charged the full amount for 3 rooms for the four days at check in. I have traveled the world and never had to prepay for a stay! So many issues seemed to arise every day. We had to call the front desk because our rooms weren't cleaned by 345pm the first day & again not cleaned even after 4pm the second day. We were shorted towels and had to call the front desk again. The was no non slip surface in the tub so we had to get and extra bath mat to use inside the tub shower. I called the front desk to get an extra blanket and housekeeping took it the second day so we had to call the front desk again to get another extra blanket. There was large puddles of standing water on the second floor deck for 2 days. My mother uses an arm crutch and we were terrified she was going to fall. We finally called to get them to sweep away the giant puddles. The stairs leading down from the second floor deck to the pool were also wet. The was a very dangerous unmarked decline into the elevator from the parking garage. Most certainly a code violation and a law suit waiting to happen-just saying. Rose in the restaurant was the only good thing about this property. She was friendly and patient and very helpful. More importantly the property is not beach front nor Oceanside. There is for that matter no view to speak of either. Our room faced the nice pool at the hotel next door-I had to make sure my drapes were closed because the building are so close they could see right into my room. The website descriptions are extremely and purposely deceiving. It is an older building surrounded by much nicer newer taller buildings, so several times a day the pool and decks are completely shaded by the neighboring buildings. The BW may have been cheaper than anything else around, but we definitely get what we paid for. Cheap, rude, barely clean, big hassles and no frills. And btw the plus stands for parking is additional fees plus, rollaway bed is additional fees plus, plus, plus. We do not recommend this property, and most definitely will not return to the property. We travel extensively and review regularly. We suggest the people pay a little extra and go to a much nicer hotel to have a pleasant and relaxing vacation. I wish we would have.

We stayed here one night, the night before our cruise. Very nice clean hotel. We unfortunately had no time for much of the Amenities. We did get to enjoy The Island Grill and Bar for dinner. Food was great as was the Bartender/Server! Super close to the beach! Will definitely plan on staying here again!

"Great staff/but booking issue"

amkura1, Buffalo, New York 21/12/2018

The 2 ladies behind the bar were wonderful. Rose and Chanel were pleasant, helpful and a blessing to this hotel. They should be valued!!! Rose was there early in the morning and stayed until after 11 P.M. on one of or days while we were there because someone called off. She was tired when she finally got to leave but she was very nice the entire time and did way more than just bartend!! The breakfast was good and more than I've seen at other hotels, including different meats each day like ham/bacon/chicken sausage, ect., waffles, salami and cheese, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, Danish and the usual, cereal, breads and bagels, yogurt, juice, coffee. The only negative was our room location. We booked 2 rooms with another couple for 4 nights. We booked 4 or 5 months ahead of our trip. My friend and I were put on the 2nd floor and the other couple with us were on the 5th floor. ??? We went on vacation together and we booked our rooms together! and yet, our rooms were nowhere near each other. When we asked at the front desk, we were told maybe because the beds are different, they have a king, we had two doubles. But when we went up to our friends room, it was exactly like ours EXCEPT for the view. We had a view of cars in the parking lot, they had a partial view of the ocean from the 5th floor!!! We made the best of it and had a great trip. The pool and deck area were fabulous!!!

This hotel is modernly decorated and really impressive with outside rooms surrounding the pool. In walking distance to the beach and the las olas area (around 15 min walk) where there are tons of restaurants (some with view of the ocean). Staff was very friendly and informative regarding area attractions. Would recommend and stay again. Also, check out the bar...drinks were good and rather affordable.

"Comfortable stay before cruise"

PG81, Prince George, Canada 09/12/2018

We had a first floor room close to the pool. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection of breakfast items. There is a small bar off the lobby and a food menu you could order from. The staff were friendly, hotel was clean and the pool was nice. Will stay here again when planning a future cruise. It is a short taxi ride to the port. Hotel is a few minutes walk to the beach. The sun trolley stops close to the hotel, you can pay $3 for a day pass. We took the trolley to the Harbour shops and to the Galleria Mall. The hotel is a short walk to the harbour marina where you can also take the water taxi, a day pass was around $25. A short 15 minute walk along the beach front promenade will take you to beach place where you will find shops and restaurants.

Near the beach. Great view of ocean from my room which had a balcony. Friendly staff. I think I was one of the few not from Germany. Accordingly, breakfast included cheese and salami which Germans love. Bikes for a bargain allowed me to ride along the beach north and tour the city. City pool aka Swimming museum hall of fame just a half mile a way and offers swimming for $4 (bring your own towel). I grabbed a deli salad and wine at the nearby deli store just north of the hotel. Great area. A bargain compared to other hotels. Beach was wonderful. Highly recommended.

donaldh886, Reno, Nevada, United States 19/11/2018

First stay at this hotel In Ft Lauderdale. Great checkin by Rita. Given towels to swim in pool while room was being turned. As BW members, was really blown away by the goodies we received upon checkin, especially the chocolate bar with our name on it. Hotel seemed recently renovated as everything was crisp and sparkling. Great king size bed and very large shower! Only thing, and it's minor, is that the fire sprinkler system creates a strobe light effect that lights up the room during the night. Also, very nice small pool. Great price for Ft Lauderdale! Steps from the beach!!

Very good location near the beach. Great breakfast - tasty and good variety. Staff were very pleasant although the late night clerk was challenged. The check out clerk, Rita Daniel, was excellent, helpful, efficient, and knowledgeable and other staff were very friendly. The decor is dated and reasonably clean, but worn. The beds were very good - soft, good pillows. It is definitely not a luxury motel but a reasonable place to stay for the money. The free breakfast would have cost a lot at a fancier place and was great. We were pleased and would stay there again.

Arubaanna, New York City, New York 15/11/2018

We arrived at this hotel after spending 10 days on a cruise. Was greeted by an extremely pleasant front desk agent Junia. She truly made me feel that she was happy to see us as guests. We had a king room partial ocean view. Granted the partial ocean view was very partial but the room was large. Bathroom was large with a large shower. Linens were terrific. Also included was a full breakfast buffet which included fresh scrambled eggs, fruit, muffins etc. There was also fresh made waffles or pancakes that you made yourself. They menu differed slightly the 3 days we were there but everything was delicious. I would definitely stay there again when I am in Ft. Lauderdale either pre or post cruise.

"Comfortable mid-range hotel in a good location"

surfermom, Lewes, Delaware 13/11/2018

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in Fort Lauderdale Beach, this Best Western is a top choice. As with any hotel choice if you are trying to save money, there are trade offs and you have to decide what is important to you and worth paying more for. Location: This hotel is located two buildings back from the beach on the beach block, not directly on the beach. It is a short walk to the beach about 2-3 mins. Accessing your room from the beach will nearly as convenient as it is in many of the large resorts. There are only a few restaurants within a short walk. The BW has its own small restaurant and bar. I like the BW location because it is easy to get to the 17th St. restaurants while still being at the beach. I think most of the restaurants near the Las Olas beach strip are a little touristy and kind of seedy. It's a short uber ride to 17th St. My daughter and I used Lime and Bird scooters to get to around, which were always available nearby, but this might not be for everyone. There is also a Metro bike rental stand very close to the hotel. The bike rentals are reasonable and a good way to get around if you get a week pass. Amenities: I would not consider the BW to be a resort hotel, but there are many resort-like amenities. The pool area is a decent size for a small hotel and includes some greenery and palm trees to make it pleasant, but it is not a resort-like poolside experience, making the BW a better choice for beach people than pool people. The front desk has some small single position beach chairs available for use, plus a few other beach items like boogie boards, toys, umbrellas. We walked just a few feet south (near the Marriott) and rented lounge chairs for $10 each. There is a small exercise room and coin op laundry available. The feature that makes this hotel unique is the large sun deck. This is a nice open air space to have drinks or a take out dinner without feeling cramped. Room: Clean, with a very comfortable pillow top mattress. Linens are clean and white, with a clean white coverlet over the lightweight comforter. Towels are white, new, and fluffy. WIFI is on the slow side. Beach hotel rooms take a beating, and this hotel is no different. If you are nit picky, you will probably find a few rough spots around the room. The bathrooms are small but the rooms are a good size, and I am guessing that various renovations have chosen to keep the small bathrooms in favor of maintaining large rooms. There were two QUEEN size, not full size, beds in our room with plenty of space between and around them. All in all, I am pretty picky about the cleanliness and overall clean feel of a hotel room and I found the BW acceptable and comfortable. I chose a room that opens onto the sundeck which gave us an easily accessible space to relax, and the feeling of having additional living space. For a family, adjoining rooms on the sundeck would be great and give you a common area to congregate. Vibe: The hotel had a mix of all kinds of patrons - families, young adults, foreign, retirees, business. The pool loungers were usually families with young kids or pre-cruisers there for a brief stay. There is no music at the pool. There were always a few people having drinks at the bar or on the deck. I was surprised at how many patrons left their cigarette butts and trash behind on the deck, which is non-smoking. There is a smoking area on the ground floor. Service: The staff has clearly been trained to provide a friendly greeting when they encounter a guest. Why does this matter? Because it is easily observable evidence that the hotel management is customer focused, and an indication that everything else about the property, from maintenance to accounting, will be well managed as well.

My review about Best Western Plus My name is Sarah Evans, I have work for Delta Airlines for 32 years.I have taken full advantaged of the amenities delta provides its employees. The opportunity to fly free. That means I've flown a lot, been to many cities, domestic and international travel and I have slept in many hotels bed. Having a bad back, the beds mattress is paramount. Not the name of the hotel, (Brand) not the cost of the hotel. The mattress, the pillow, and the linen, oh my goodness what a wonderful night sleep I had at the Best Western Plus I will always stay here and recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you management for thinking of more than one thing but one of the most important thing, a good night sleep.

It was newly renovated but it was sorta half done and not that well. A room needs more than just a coat of paint to make it look new. Other than that, it was great. VERY friendly staff, plus the restaurant in the hotel was very good. Plus it was like a 2 min walk to the beach which is hard to find without spending a lot of money. Rooms were big but bathrooms a little small. Besides that it was a great hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Ullia, Maressa, Nico, Leila, Gloria, and all other wonderful folks at this hotel made not only the trip great, but grand. We made our reservations last minute and went in with no expectations..just saw "breakfast included" ...and wow it was just wonderful. From check in at midnight with Gloria, breakfast with the "welcome to our family" Leila, drinks from bartender Nico, and checkout with Maressa and Ullia, every person went out of their way to make you comfortable and happy. A Sunday breakfast everyday, and a large pool and wonderful dinner and drinks make this hotel a 5 star for us. Ocean adjecent, out the back pool door and 1 minute walk a crossed the back drive to the beach....fabulous. A definite hotel we will recommend over and over.

We had a great stay at Oceanside Inn and we would stay there again. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. The breakfast offered was very good and a great variety.. Every area was very clean and although the weather was not so good and we lost power the staff did everything to make up for the inconvenience of the bad weather. We were especially impressed with Jennifer and Leila. The location was very convenient and we walked less than 5 minutes to the beach. We met some very nice people that were also guests there. I really can't say enough nice things about this hotel and it is such a relief when making reservations online.

Best Western is not my first choice for a mid-priced chain hotel. so I was a little reluctant when we booked a room at Oceanside. To say that I was pleasantly surprised is a bit of a understatement. The great stay started with Jennifer at the front desk. She had a terrific personality, and made us feel very welcome when we arrived after midnight. The room and bathroom were both spacious and well appointed, along with being spotless. The breakfast the next morning was a notch above what you would typically get at a chain hotel. The neighborhood where the hotel was located was safe and convenient. I would certainly stay here again!

you get what you pay for i guess. cheap out because the kids are there you need multiple rooms. fort lauderdale has changed dramatically in recent years. best to bring your intro to spanish book, some of the front desk has trouble with the language, others are uninterested in helping, others are very good. pool was full of very loud dirty children yelling about doing something nasty in the pool, parents were worse.

"Great visit; Pay for Parking and its limited..."

User 04/09/2018

We had a great visit at the Best Western, unfortunately the weather wasn't the best but that is not the hotels fault. Pros: 5 minute walk from the beach, great variety of breakfast items (included with your stay), nice clean pool, bar on site, overall clean hotel. On our last day we had a tropical storm passing through and the light went out for about 3 hours during breakfast. The hotel staff did great on acting quickly to the situation. They brought out extra loafs of bread, and figured out a way to make coffee. (I think they had a back up generator for the kitchen, or something). I appreciated their quick reaction to the situation, which was out of their control, in catering to their guest. Cons: There are really only 2... Having to pay $15.00 a night for parking, is a little expensive being that we are already paying for the hotel stay. They do not have that many parking spots, so if you go out at night, chances are when you come back you wont find a spot. We decided to use Lyft to our restaurant and that worked out great. Your not suppose to eat or drink at all in the pool area. I understand no food or beverages in the pool or even rules about glass containers, but no food or drinks at the patio tables? I find that a little extreme.

Jenn Y, Allen Park, Michigan 03/09/2018

First time visiting Ft. Lauderdale, was looking for a quick ocean vacation before school started. Visited with husband and four children. Upon arrival, my husband dropped me off in front to check-in. I wish I had the girls name at the desk but she was awesome. Room 400 was clean and modern and faced street, which was fine. We had a hard time using outside elevator and a staff member, Rose was more than willing to direct and help us. We immediately found the ocean, which is about a 5 min walk. Caution: I got blisters on my feet from the hot sand, the first day. If going in summer, please wear shoes. After spending time on the beach we retreated to the pool and had dinner and drinks outside. Turns out Rose was working the bar. She is magnificent. I would also like to acknowledge, Mike and Scarlet at the bar. Every single staff member we encountered was friendly and great. The breakfast is from 7-10am each morning and included with your stay. The menu varies day to day. But always had eggs, and fruit and make your own waffles. Some people have complained about a 15.00 a day parking fee, but the buffet for 6 x five days more than compensated for that fee. Breakfast would have cost us 100. A day at another resort. Speaking of food, the restaurant food is delicious. We are there everyday, except one. No reason to go any place else with their extensive menu and full bar. This hotel is wonderful and a great value for the money. I would definitely recommend staying here. My family enjoyed time at the pool and my husband and I enjoyed many drinks at the tables by the pool

Brad O, Montreal, Canada 21/08/2018

Was in town on business and rather than staying near the airport our travel agent suggested this Best Western Plus. The rooms are nice, spacious and I had access to a private balcony. The bathroom was big and my room had a nice walk in shower with a traditional shower head and also a rain style head; nice touch. Breakfast was the standard for this type of hotel and there were ample spots to sit even during peak times. Parking was a little tight on the weekend, but during the week was fine. A special shout out to the very helpful front desk staff. Thanks for all the help Ullia & Rita!!

vanda s, Guernsey, United Kingdom 16/08/2018

My husband stayed here 29 years ago and raved about this hotel, he always wanted to take me there and a recent visit to Florida for a family wedding provided the ideal opportunity. On arrival it was obvious this place was more like low end motel rather than the lively hotel he remembered ?? Everything looked old and tired, breakfast was just about palatable, served on paper plates with plastic cutlery, the room was a good size but the bathroom cleanliness was debatable. The air conditioning was effective but each time it cut in it sounded like someone had started up a very noisy engine in the room, not conducive to any kind of restful night. One staff member; Rose went above and beyond to do all she could to help but the reception staff were not at all welcoming and appeared to feel very superior. It was an experience but not one I would wish to repeat.

Tim S, Guernsey, United Kingdom 07/08/2018

I stayed in this hotel 29 years ago and enjoyed it so much I always wanted to return and bring my wife. Traveling to Florida for a family wedding gave us the opportunity to do this so I booked a 3 night stay. Being a Best Western Hotel, I assumed that although things most certainly would have changed, the quality would remain the same. Sadly the Hotel is now very tired and the cleanliness in certain areas leaves a lot to be desired, especially around the pool. The majority of staff are lovely and friendly, Rose in particular is wonderful, so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, she certainly went above and beyond what was expected of her, on the flip side, the reception staff on duty when we checked in were haughty and aloof. The breakfast is very very basic but edible, served on paper plates with plastic cutlery, but plentiful. The bedroom was a nice size and the bed comfortable although we were definitely not alone in it as every morning I awoke with large painful bites on my leg! The bar service was excellent and the premium branded drinks were poured in very generous measures, the food ordered through the bar was also good. I'm glad we made the trip but probably won't be returning.

The rooms are nice, bed is comfy, AC is ice cold, rooms have a balcony, the breakfast is hearty, WiFi is strong and the staff is super helpful.

We had 7 rooms at this hotel for two nights before our cruise. The staff was excellent and very helpful, especially Nico at the bar. It is not on the beach, but it's very close and you do not have to cross a street to get there. The beach is vey nice and there are great shady places a little further down the boardwalk. The rooms were decent size and the beds very comfortable. The morning breakfast was the best we have ever had at a hotel. Would stay again.

Very good hotel and facilities very good.Pool is a little bit small but otherwise ok.Staff very good and rooms very well serviced.Breakfast adequate as the hot food can be a little variable-was looking forward to bacon but this only appeared once in our 7 day stay.Had lunch a number of times whilst there and was always very good and tasty!Rooms very large and well equipped. Reception staff were very good overall but only one knew how to get us to Sawgrass mills using a tour company as opposed to a cab! Did have an issue with loud neighbours at 4-5am in the morning once and reception failed to deal with this and we ourselves had to resolve. Overall our stay was very good and a very good hotel but a word of warning with regards to booking rooms on the 1st floor-some of these are right next to the pool without any privacy so would need to keep your curtains/drapes closed at all times!Only one working at the of our stay and a slow one it was at that!

This BW hotel is right on the edge of the main beach strip in Fort Lauderdale. My wife and I stayed for four nights. The hotel had clearly been updated somewhat recently and it looked great. The complimentary breakfast was really good for a hotel that's under $200/night. Ullia checked us in. She was very friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely stay here again--in fact, I'm hoping to do so soon!

We stayed here on our last night in Florida after a cruise and Everglades vacation. We couldn't have picked a nicer hotel. Our room opened onto a sundeck which overlooked the pool. The room was very comfortable and the a/c was amazing! Sometimes you get a room where the a/c doesn't really cool the room or it smells funny or makes awful noises....this a/c did its job! The hotel was maybe a block from the beach and it was a beautiful beach. After playing in the pool for a couple of hours we walked to the beach and continued to frolic there. It was neat to see areas cordoned off to protect buried sea turtle eggs. Ya don't see that in Ohio ;-). The complimentary breakfast had great variety and was very good. Parking is not free but it's comparable to other hotels nearby and the garage is attached to the hotel. This was a very enjoyable stay.

I my family and I stayed here for a night before our cruise. We arrived at 1p but couldn't check into our room til 3. We had lunch there at the hotel and the food was decent but not as good as our server Rosie. She was great. The hotel staff was mediocre at best and extremely slow with the check in process. The rooms were decent but nothing that would make me choose them again. Parking garage was extremely small and crowded and difficult to get in and out of. If we ever go on another cruise from Ft Lauderdale we will be trying a different hotel for sure.

Food is phenomenal for a hotel! Loved the salads and the chicken tender meal! We had 22 high school students and the staff was tolerable and pleasant. They were also helpful when trying to entertain our group! Would visit again given the opportunity!

On yearly vacation to FL, return trip to Ft Lauderdale as well, thought this spot was oceanfront or oceanview but wasn't but that was okay its located on a short walk or stumble from Ft Lauderdale beach park. Breakfast was tasty with enough options to cover different tastes. In house bar was great nice beverages not watered down, bartenders were friendly and cool. Cold infused water is available daily in the lobby which wifey loved. Oceanside Inn is nice and clean, staff was warm and friendly and attentive, everything worked in room , even had usb ports beside which was cool. Soft towels and nice soap, cheapest parking in area, if you return late you have to use underground parking but lots of light. Cookies upon check in too. Overall cool surprise, good spot, saved few $$, will definitely consider return stay.

"Financial headache"

User 19/06/2018

The two stars are only for the look, location and breakfast of the hotel. I was charged an authorization charge before my stay even though it was booked under pay when you arrive. There is a 250 dollar which is outrageous. Resorts dont even charge that much. They roped of 1/3 of parking and hotel staff or guests didnt know why and you have to pay daily for parking. The worst part of our stay and the reason they deserve no stars was at checkout time I discovered we were charged twice for our stay. When told to the finance manager we were told she didnt see it on her end and we should take it up with our bank. Between the authorization charge, 250 deposit, and being charged twice this place is a nightmare. Disappointed because its actually a nice hotel in a nice area. Just cant deal with all the charges and them not taking responsibility.

My family stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. We had a great stay, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the beach was a two minute walk away, the shower was HUGE and the breakfast was really good! There was scrambled eggs everyday and a different variety of hot meats each day, waffles, fruit, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, pastries and juices. The only negatives were that one elevator was out of service so you had to wait a bit for the elevator but since we were only on the third floor we just took the stairs most of the time. And the parking garage was having some maintenance so you had to park below ground but that was no big deal for us.

We recently returned to Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn for a 4 night stay after our cruise on Allure of the Seas. We love many things about this Hotel, mainly, the staff. Nicole, Ullia, Gloria, Cesar, Rose, Leila, Josellis, Carolina, and many others. We want to thank Ms. Trevienne Barrett who makes everything go smoothly and who made our stay very special. She and her staff are a great asset to this hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of the Fort Lauderdale Beach. They provide umbrellas and beach chairs. Their complimentary full breakfast is excellent. Eggs, omelettes bacon, sausage, ham, fresh fruits, cereal yogurt etc. I could go on and on and oh yes the fresh waffle machine! There is a nice pool and also shaded areas to sit in with umbrellas and tables. A small restaurant and bar is on premises. The food is very good and reasonably priced.The restaurant staff was attentive. There is a separate sunning deck on the second level. The hotel is clean and inviting. The Fort Lauderdale Sun Trolley runs right in front of the hotel. It is an easy walk along the boulevard to all kinds of restaurants. Also, the Jungle Queen riverboat is within walking distance for cruises. We love their evening dinner cruise but that's another review. We would recommend this hotel if you want a reasonable priced hotel within walking distance to the beach and includes all the amenities I mentioned. We will definitely return!

GATerp1, Powder Springs, Georgia 13/06/2018

I just read the recent negative review and have to say this was not our experience at all. We usually stay at Marriotts or Hiltons but have stayed at a few Best Westerns in the past 2 years with good results. Since this hotel was less expensive than other beach hotels and the parking rates were lower, we booked a room for 3 nights. Although the hotel is on the older side, it was nicely renovated. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we had no problems with housekeeping. Breakfast selections were good. We liked the location which was close to the beach, a stop for the water taxi, and the main beach restaurant and bar attractions. The only thing that would have made it better is if there were a umbrella and chair rental service on the beach close to the hotel.

220Molly, Milford, Delaware 13/06/2018

My husband & I stayed for 3 nights. We are not, by any means, hotel snobs but this place is run-down, shabby and worn. The rooms are small, the bathroom is small. Best Western has really gone down hill. We have stayed in better, nicer Motel 6's. And housekeeping is pitiful. We removed the privacy hanger from our door & went to breakfast at 8:30-9:30. From 9:30-11:30, we were at the beach, again with no privacy note on our door. At noon, housekeeping knocked on our door while we were showering, I told them we would be out of the room at 1:30, for the entire day, and please come back, if they could, at that time. When we left, they were cleaning room 302 & we personally told them again, we were leaving for the day, please clean our room, provide new towels, etc. They said yes. At 11:00 PM, we returned to our room. No bed made, not one clean towel, no soap! When I called the front desk, we were told housekeeping said there was the privacy note on our door the entire day. BOLD FACE LIE! Again, with all the other hotels in the area, please do not even consider the Best Western Plus!

Hello Molly, Allow me to apologize for the issues you experienced with housekeeping. If you change your mind and decide to stay with us or any Best Western again please understand that we take guest privacy very seriously and if and when our guests decide that they would like to have their room cleaned we always recommended that they contact the front desk or housekeeping for assistance. On behalf of the management team I do apologize for the issues you experienced. Trevienne Barrett, Front Office Manager

I stayed at the Best Western Plus just off Ft Lauderdale Beach as part of a Delta Vacation for three nights and was pleasantly surprised. First, the included breakfast buffet is very good with good variety and a few hot items are changed each day but the best part is the excellent FRESH waffles that you make in about 3 minutes with a variety of toppings. The area is indoors with a pool view and always clean and well presented but please tip the hardworking young ladies who keep it this way. Secondly, if you go out the front door to the left and behind the hotel and make the first right, there is an access point for the beach and beach park with volleyball nets and further down for kids slides, etc. but the beach is enormous here, plenty of room for all (If you want a quiet almost private walk on the beach, walk to the right past the Marriot towards the inlet to Port Everglades). Third, the location is excellent as you are a 10-15 min. drive to the airport and Port Everglades so if you have an extra day or two and want a good value, by all means stay here. In addition, you are at the southern most end of the strip and easy walking distance to the Bahia Mar yacht basin where you can take the famous Jungle Queen for a day sight seeing or evening dinner cruise-one of my all time favorite things to do. If you walk north on the beach side (recommended due to traffic pattern) and cross over by the Swimming Hall of Fame, there are several fairly reasonable places to eat along with the tourist traps and bars. There is a decent pizza place on Las Olas next to the Elbow Room Bar. Finally, the room I was in was small but very clean with 2 comfortable beds but I was hardly there. There are no views worth speaking of here but on the second floor there are tables with umbrellas one level up from the small pool which offers a nice place to eat or read. Overall, the staff is very pleasant and helpful but if you rent a car, they hit you for $ 16 a day to park in their garage so if you are only staying a day or 2 and not traveling, a cab may be cheaper. Wi Fi was good but did not eat at the restaurant or use the pool but if you are on a budget and only staying a couple of days and want a good location a 3 minute walk to a very clean beach, this hotel can not be beat. Enjoy!

This hotel is surprisingly pleasant. It was just before the summer break and therefore it was not too busy. We were allowed to check in earlier. The room is reasonably large and very clean. The location is very good - within easy walking distance to the beach and the river cruise (Jungle Queen) jetty.

Things needed fixing. Safe was broken. Bathroom was large, but there wasn't any counter space for even a tooth brush. We had to keep our toiletries on the nightstand. Couldn't control the AC direction. It blew directly on the person trying to sleep. Very hard to get in and out of the bed. There was only about 7 inches of space between the wall and the bed. Didn't live up to a Plus rating.

This was a bummer weekend, it rained the entire weekend. The front desk staff was excellent an accommodating, Rose and Nico were great and helpful asst the island grille and bar. The hotel wasn't bad but it wasn't the best. My family changed rooms 3 times due to rooms being dirty. They were switched without a problem. Hotel close to the cruise port, beach and airport.

pddixon, Winnipeg, Canada 27/05/2018

We stayed here for 1nt prior to our Princess Cruise. Loved the location !!! You are just a short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants in the area. We walked about 15 min and ate at Coconut Restaurant....so good ! From the airport you are about 15 min depending on traffic and about the same to the pier. We took the shuttle from the hotel to the pier and the cost was USD $25.00 for 2. Found this worked better than a taxi simply because you go over a bridge that may need to open to let a boat pass....sitting in a cab....the meter is running ! The staff was pleasant and the buffet breakfast was good. A couple of notes to mention.....the bed was not at all comfortable and the fire alarm didn't go off, but beeped about 6 times, every hour ALL night. We mentioned it to the first desk staff at checkout, so we are hoping that was fixed. We couldn't seem to get the temperature in the room comfortable....either we were too cold or too hot....one extreme to the other. That said, overall we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again.

Hotel is nice avoid the front desk staff and it's great. Check in was horrible they place 2 150 dollar holds on our card. Front desk staff is rude and untrained and incompetent. The pool closes at 8pm! Ok now the good. Breakfast was excellent! Breakfast staff was great and so was the bartender. The rooms where spotless clean beds comfortable. I will say the best shower in a hotel I have ever had!! Partial ocean view from our balcony close to beach. Owners should be proud of the property overall. If it wasn't for poor check in and front desk issues this hotel would have had top marks for everything!

Dani B, Clarington, Ontario 01/05/2018

I had booked a room for Saturday, April 14th, the night before our cruise. Since we ended up having drive instead of flying, we did not arrive until 9:30 pm Saturday night. I had phoned the hotel a couple of times to make sure this was noted on our reservation and we were able to check-in without any problems. Cookies at check-in were a nice touch. The lounge/bar area is spacious and I appreciated being able to get ginger ale for a friend who felt sick in the morning (nerves and stress - he was fine later). Internet worked just fine. Breakfast had a nice variety and lots of tables. Secure garage parking with parking spaces big enough for a van. Room was clean, beds comfortable and I liked the color theme in the room. I was happy how close this was to the beach and to the cruise terminal! There was even a Walgreens (with parking) on the way to the cruise terminal, which was handy as I forgot to pack shampoo & conditioner.

She was also very helpful she checked us in early. The next morning she also helps us with our luggage and our tags for the cruise ship. The breakfast in this place is wonderful but the service from these employees are the best top notch.. And the rooms are remodeled so nicely with beautiful turquoise colors and the bathrooms are clean white sparkling .. Thank you so much for all your help.

Van H, Gainesville, Florida 30/04/2018

Stayed at the Best Western for a 3 night getaway. We spent a lot of time around this beach/area back many years ago, so was nice to visit again. Really enjoyed the stay overall. We had a sundeck room, which was really nice. It was great to just step out of our room and grab some chairs and sun, and walk downstairs to pool. Our room, in general, was fine. The AC was very cold/nice. Bed was comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised how quiet our room was (not a lot of noise from anywhere, even outside on sundeck). I could nitpick things about the room, but it's just small things - nothing that affected our stay in a major way. We didn't get a chance to do breakfast (we were out early / hit Lester's on SR84), but it looked like a nice setup - and as part of the stay/price, a nice plus. The pool was nice. Decent sized, very clean. Pool water temp was cool (probably not heated), but was "perfect" for the outdoor temps we had. We got drinks from the bar, which were great, and received great service. A+. The location, in general, is excellent. The beach is just behind the building a bit/short walk. The main strip is a just a short walk as well. Lots of great shops, bars and eateries. Walking at night was interesting - saw all kinds of characters and happenings (as is typical with most beach locales). Felt pretty safe overall - just be aware of the surroundings. Parking was fine, but pretty tight. Once we got the hang of it, and how tight getting in/out and parking spots were, we were good. We always like to self-park if we can/don't care of the valet situation (as most hotels on the beach are), so we were all good with this. Overall, we had a great stay. We would definitely recommend the Best Western. Great location, service, and price.

"Almost Perfect Experience"

User 21/04/2018

This hotel was perfect in almost every way! My two friends and I came for a week away, staying Monday through Friday. The Best Western was within walking distance from Las Olas Boulevard, which was a huge plus, as well as a short walk away from the beach! It was very reasonably priced. We loved the pool and the option of sitting down by the pool or up on the upper deck. The breakfast buffet was exceptional. We all have allergies/food intolerances and we had no issues finding food we could eat. The only issue we had with our stay was when the housekeeper left our door propped open when we went down to the beach. She had finished cleaning and forgot to take the doorstop out so our room was left open to the public for anywhere between five minutes and two hours. We were very upset since we all had valuables in the room (laptops, iPads, money, medications, etc.). Nobody at the front desk really seemed to really care when we complained. This was the only less than perfect experience we had with our hotel. Hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone else in the future!

This is my first time ever writing a review, so my experience had to have been bad for me to be writing. Horrible experience!!!! The hotel was dirty, floors, furniture. We paid $28.00 a day to park in the garage and the garage was not large enough to accommodate all the cars and the parking spots were to small for any type of SUV. We went to park the car at night, the garage was full, so we had to park illegally. We went to the front desk to complain and nothing was done. We had reservations for 5 days, checked in on Sunday and checked out early on Tuesday morning. It was to stressful to stay another day.

We were upgraded to a room with a view of the ocean, which we appreciated. The hotel appeared to have a lot of guests, but was surprisingly quiet. The free breakfast was excellent. The bar/restaurant provided excellent service and food, in spite of there being only one person working the floor, and one person in the kitchen. Although we didn't swim in the pool, it was a nice place to sit in the evening for dinner and drinks. The front desk staff were smart and helpful. The location right beside the beach is great. We will stay here again.

Hailunpb, Montreal, Canada 30/03/2018

I was extremely disappointed with my stay. First I was given a room outside of the building by the pool. ( the one looks like a maintenance room with curtains down). I asked whether there was another room, the receptionist said no they were booked solid. Then I walked in, the curtain rod dropped on my head, the light was not working, and the door can't be latched. People were still by the pool at mid-night. When I insisted that I can't stay in a room where there is no basic safety guarantee, they magically found me another room in the building. In the new room on the 2nd floor, I can lock the door but not the balcony door. Had to call someone again to fix it. My colleague who stayed in the same hotel also had a bad experience even just trying to make a phone call out. Took her back and forth several phone calls to be able to make a local call. Our conference finished at 12h30pm so we inquired whether we can have a late check-in and the answer was no. No flexibility at all. The breakfast has a sign as indicated in the photo ( apples haven't been washed)...overall I will not go back again and not recommend to anyone.

$250 hold charge not mentioned until arrival & my card was charged twice for the same stay... takes 5-7 days to reimburse me. No early check-in was available. No view from balcony just another hotel..

Trevienne B, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, responded to this review
Hello Drena, Please note there were no double charges on your card. I do believe we provided you with a receipt, however, I would be more than happy to provide you with another if needed. I do apologize for the mis-communication, but it is listed on our website and all third party booking sites that additional charges will be collected at check-in, some sites states verbatim "that if guest does not have a credit card ( in your case) a deposit will be held" whether it be cash or on a debit card. Please contact me directly if you have questions that I have not addressed. Thank you for choosing our location and we hope you can understand that our policy is standard for all guests. Sincerely, Trevienne Barrett ( Ms. T) Front Office Manager

Edie E, York 19/03/2018

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were never disappointed! The rooms are clean and the breakfast in the morning is great, which is included in the room price. We were there a few days before our cruise and after the cruise. Unfortunately, due to a snowstorm at home our flight was cancelled and because of spring break it was hard to get a room for another night. Ullia Felicien from the front desk was amazing and went out of her way to try to accommodate. She also called us the next day to make sure we were able to fly out and if we needed a room. She is amazing!! Also, Rose at the Restaurant was very friendly and she made great suggestions. We will be back!!

This hotel offered easy access to the beach, water taxi, Fort Lauderdale strip, and Las Olas. As a smaller hotel, it was easy to get around. Our rooms were small also but clean and bright. The breakfast buffet was best free one I have ever had. Fresh, fluffy eggs and lots of variety. We stayed 5 nights and each morning there was something slightly different as well as the great basics. The staff was friendly and helpful. I hope to return!

Located about a block from the beach and a short walk to Las Olas Blvd. Water taxi is a couple of blocks away. Bus and trolley runs in front of hotel. I've stayed at this hotel many times and always had a wonderful time. Beds are super comfortable. There is a great selection of food on the breakfast buffet which is included in your stay. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. Hotel has been remodeled recently.

User 05/03/2018

This hotel is well situated from a 10 minutes walk to the beach. Rooms are clean. There is a terasse with umbrellas, chairs and beach chairs which is nice, there is a lot of chairs. We were in room 202 there was a lot of noises, this room is just behind the street also we couldn't open the doors to go on the balcony, lock was broken, but even if this door would been okay, we couldn't go on the balcony because of the noises. Also this weekend there was an event with volleyball just behind, this was not the hotel's fault for all the noises, but we stay 2 nights and would have appreciated if they would give us a room in front of the pool instead of back with view on the street at the corner of the hotel. Prices was high with canadian money. But I would like to mention that there is a bistro for lunch and dinner, this was so good. Also the hotel's breakfast was very good.

desnuggs, Birmingham, Alabama 05/03/2018

This was my 2nd time staying at the BW Oceanside. Really it's a nice place but there's not a lot room in the rooms (i.e., not a lot of walking room or storage for your clothes). So, if you are not bothered by that, then this is a great place. The hotel had recently undergone renovations to the main lobby and breakfast area. The food is really good. You do have to pay extra for parking if you have a vehicle. If you are just staying overnight, then this will be a good place. If you are staying longer, I would definitely stay elsewhere. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the beach. I did like that too.

My husband and I have stayed here for at least the last 15 years. We come for two weeks in January and February. Ms T, Ulima (spelling), Rose, Liala, Nic, Monique and Patricia make us feel at home. From the time we check in, there is nothing but warmth. They are accommodating and helpful. Nic who works the lounge always has a smile and is helpful. One night it was so busy but he was taking care of everyone with a smile. The only thing that can use improvement is the WiFi and phone service.

POCisme, Franklin, New Hampshire 04/03/2018

My husband and I rescheduled to go to the best Western in January prior to a cruise. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, we were unable to go. I contacted this establishment two days before our expected arrival and explained the circumstances. They were unwilling to give any consideration to canceling the reservation without penalty. I had to pay full price for the room which I did not use.

Hello, Let me say condolences to you on behalf of Best Western Hotels. Our accounting department deals with late cancellations and charges as they see fit.

lebelgo, Walnut Creek, California 28/02/2018

While it's not exactly on the ocean, it's very close, and I loved almost everything about my stay. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Diamond status scored free parking which was a huge plus. The rooms were sleek-looking, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The internet was speedy. Breakfast was quite decent. The bar had lots of options and the drinks weren't too expensive. I was very impressed by the selection for a hotel of this size. I never had any trouble finding indoor parking. Both check-in and check-out were speedy (just drop the keys off when checking out). Nice pool with both sun and shade. I'd definitely stay again!

DeniseWayne, Wayne 24/02/2018

We arrived earlier than check in time because our plane landed earlier. Our room was already ready for us. Check in was easy. Got settled in and had not had lunch yet so we opted to eat in the restaurant, excellent choice. The mahi mahi sandwich was delectable. Our view from the balcony was pretty cool as we could watch planes taking off from the airport. It also overlooked the pool. Pool area was very nice. Decided to take a walk and it was only a block to the beach. What a wonderful beach! Very clean. The waves were way too high to get in the water but we enjoyed walking and picking up seashells. Got a wonderful surprise upon returning to the room of a bag with water and chocolate bars in it since we are Best Western members. Came to dinner time and we asked what was in the area. Not much close but we walked about 6 blocks or so and found the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, what a nice find. The beds were comfy and the room very clean. We stayed here for the night before we cruised. Breakfast was included in the morning and it was a nice choice of breakfast items. Check out was easy. I would definitely stay here again!

JenR8R, Wisconsin, United States 24/02/2018

There are so many wonderful things about this hotel! I'll get the only not perfect thing out of the way: it's an older property and the room and some common areas show a little age. All that aside, this was a perfect spot. I ran the A1A half and wanted to be close to the finish line - the hotel was about 75 yards from the finish! Plus, it's right on the beach. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful, having my room ready several hours ahead of time (I checked in online). The attached parking garage is small, but I could always find a spot. The lobby area is very nice. I didn't use the restaurant, but the free breakfast was great. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel, and I consider myself to be pretty picky.

We stayed here for the half marathon . Everyone at the hotel was very accommodating. They provided water and granola bars for the runners on their way out in the morning. Hotel is older and some things are a bit worn, however minor. The room was clean , bed was comfortable and staff was welcoming and very friendly. Breakfast had many choices and area was kept clean. Staff continually refilled. Parking garage was adjacent. I wish the cost of parking however was included in the hotel cost. Hotel location was an easy walk to the beach. Would stay here again.

"Nice little hotel "

Michael Z, Boynton Beach, Florida 21/02/2018

Stayed at this hotel for two nights during the Fort Lauderdale half marathon weekend. The only reason I choose this hotel was that it was close to the finish line and reasonably priced. When you pull up the front parking area is small and if there was three cars there already you either need to block the entrance or drive around. Can't enter the parking area until you have your room key . Lobby is bright and clean. Check in was easy, CJ was pleasant and friendly even while he was training a new employee. Third floor room was clean. Plenty of space . Expect the bathroom was really small . I'm guessing this was an older hotel that was recently updated. They offer a free breakfast buffet every morning. Basic bacon, eggs, waffles, etc.. Not a bad place would stay here again if ever in Fort Lauderdale again . The sign about their Tuna salad was funny at least they own that it's canned tuna.

We stayed here the night prior to our cruise departure. Ullia and Rochelle met us at the front desk for check in and were amazing! They were so very nice and friendly. We were hungry, so they stored our luggage and we ate at the bar and then finished our check in. They go out of their way to take care of the frequent BW travelers. We had a corner room with an ocean view balcony. Being right on the beach wasn't important to us, so this place fit the bill perfectly. Room was very clean. Bar waitress was very nice and good at her job. Had lunch and dinner there. Both very good. Breakfast was the best self serve breakfast I have had at a motel ever. Well cooked and well presented. After returning from our cruise, we stayed the night as well. We got off the ship quite early and Ullia and Rochelle again made sure we were taken care of. We spent time hanging by the pool while we were waiting for the same room that we had the week before. Again, it was very, very nice. Great hotel. A little pricey, but well worth it, considering the convenient location to the port, the incredible personalized service and the great breakfast. We will definitely stay here again.

User 19/02/2018

We made our reservation the night before we flew into town, and I was pleased to be able to get the employee rate so last minute! The front desk staff was amazing and very accommodating, due to the fact we arrived at the hotel at 8am...I knew it would be too early to check in. The front desk offered to store our luggage and allowed us to wait it out by the pool until a room was ready. SO NICE! I love that they use Runtriz to communicate with their guests! Everyone was friendly and helpful the entire time we were there. The breakfast offered was above and beyond "the call of duty"...very impressive! My only suggestion would be that the breakfast attendant be a bit more friendly/smiley, and the housekeeping staff pay better attention to floor corners. I would definitely recommend this Best Western Plus if being right on beach isn't a "must".

Ms. T is the bomb.com. She and her staff took such incredible care of us. We mentioned we had recently got engaged and like a little fairy, she went to work. While our room was being prepared, we went to the ocean with two complimentary beach towels, came back to fresh baked cookies, some Hershey's chocolate, and a bottle of wine to enjoy. She even upgraded us to a fancy room. Killer location, amazingly friendly staff, phenomenal shower, beautiful view, and an a quiet night sleep. Well done.

Don't stay at this hotel! It is overpriced for the kind of room you get. Our room was very small. The bathroom was the size of a small closet. Our view was a wall when I thought I was getting a poolside room. There was a lot of noise and door slamming during the night and early in the morning. There was a bright security light right outside of our room that even with curtains shut was annoying. We did not get any restful nights' sleep. Also, they didn't honor my request for a wake up call.

Cheap ($7 per person) shuttle to the pier. They gave us complimentary cookies and crackers upon check-in. Very good breakfast included. Hotel clerks were very helpful.

Lynton191, Ascot, United Kingdom 30/01/2018

We stayed here a week ago and found the staff attentive and eager to provide the best service available. Laundry given to them before 0800 returned to your room and hung up as appropriate before 1900 !..and at a reasonable cost.....as for the location although no sea views it is literally about a 3 minute walk and you're right on the southern end of the beach. The location is ideal for those wishing to relax in the sun either by the pool or on the beach, the pool is south facing so sun all day and there are not so many sunbeds that you are sitting on each others laps,which cannot be said for other hotels. Shops of all varieties are a short distance away, as are great places to eat. The hotel buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied. The hotel had plenty of parking so yet another plus for this location. It appears that the hotel frontage is being refreshed at the moment however this does not mean noise or mess. The rooms are quiet and well appointed, a relaxing 3 night stay. We would stay again when next in Ft. Lauderdale. Cesar at Reception presents himself and Best Western perfectly, an asset to the company.

They made my daughter and I feel welcome and right at home. I actually checked out of my original hotel and checked into this Best Wetsern Plus because the vibe was so perfect!

"Pleasant, Comfortable Stay"

WizardBristol, Bristol 23/01/2018

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our trip around Florida. Although located on busy route A1A, the hotel is in a quiet area yet only a 15 minute stroll to several decent restaurants, including Casablanca Cafe. Right near the beach, on the beach trolley route and very close to the water taxi, this hotel's location is spot on. We had booked a king suite, but on checking in discovered that the one and only suite is located on the first (lobby) floor, with its door and windows literally a couple of feet from the pool. Besides our concern about privacy we were also dismayed to note unbearably loud music and a large group of fairly loud teenagers in the pool. As we had come for rest and relaxation and we discovered that the group would be here for the whole of our stay, we asked for a different room, and Ullia did not hesitate to show us a couple of available rooms so that we could choose whichever suited us best. She also gave us her phone number so that we could contact her (even on her day off) if there were any other issues - a really nice touch - and she went out of her way to make sure everything continued to be ok. As we wanted a room with a balcony we settled on a room with 2 double beds on the 5th floor. The room was comfortable, light and airy; however, on checking out we alerted the receptionist to the carpet which seemed sticky and probably needed cleaning. The hotel has a comfortable on-site bar and dining area. There is a varied menu with items such as small bites, sandwiches, wraps, fish and chips, steak, pizza etc. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. We particularly enjoyed talking with bartenders Mike and Nico who are so friendly and helpful. The hotel car park is on 2 floors, and as a lot of guests were staying before and/or after a cruise, there appeared to be just enough parking; however, due to the pillars and relatively small spaces parking is a bit tight. Overall a pleasant stay.

clarionsite, Canada 22/01/2018

The hotel is rather old but it got a face lift; it's near the bus stops, the beach and if you want to walk around, you can; the staff were very helpful; the internet worked well; free breakfast and just the right kind of food; it has a swimming pool but don't swim as it's filled up sometimes; however, my room overlooks the pool and I saw them clean it daily when I was there; the only problem with this hotel is it's after the draw bridge from Port Everglades which could delay you and make you spend more money if you take a cab; otherwise, it's a good place for a pre-cruise schedule.

Siobhan J, Commerce Township, Michigan 19/01/2018

I normally stay at The Marriott Harbor Beach or The Ritz but could not get a room and needed to be close to a meeting at The Marriott so I opted to "settle" for the closest hotel which was The Best Western Plus Oceanside. I have to say, the service I received there was no less professional, friendly or courteous than the service I am accustomed to at those larger, much more expensive hotels! From the front desk agents, Rita and Ullia to the bartenders/servers, Mike, Rose and Nico, I can't say enough! Each of them were very helpful, friendly and professional and each of them went out of their way in one way or another to make my stay a very pleasant experience! Rose was funny and delightful, Nico was very helpful with menu selections and nice conversation as was Mike, who even went out of his way to get his own personal charger so I could charge my phone at the bar! I also witnessed them treating other guests extremely well too. To my surprise, the hotel was very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed and the pool area was clean, well maintained and a lovely place to relax. My room was well maintained by a friendly staff of housekeepers and the food from the restaurant was very good as well. Another thing that impressed me was the way the staff treated each other. They all seemed very kind and considerate of one another and seemed to be happy at work - obviously, the owner/management is doing something right - when you take care of your employees, they take care of your customers! If there were any "cons" to my stay and these are not major complaints - it would be that the elevator is extremely slow so you need to allow a couple extra minutes to get up or down and the bathroom door in my room was awkwardly close to the sink vanity - I think maybe the sink/vanity was just too large for the room or could use a sliding door? Neither of these issues would prevent me from going back, however! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the area with great service and nice amenities!

"Decent hotel, THIN walls "

lakureyri, Okotoks, Canada 19/01/2018

Booked on BW points Chose this hotel because it was decently close to the airport and cruise ports. Arrival and check in went smoothly (save for the rude guest who completely walked in on our conversation with the check in guy to ask about parking for his friend). We were given our loyalty gift and on our way to our room. The hotel is old but remodelled, but could still use a REALLY good cleaning/paint upgrade. Room was big and spacious, bathroom a good size and the shower is HUGE with lots of different shower heads (very fancy). The walls are VERY THIN and if there's one thing I know about travelling in the US, it's no one else cares about other guests around them so be prepared to hear their entire conversations, showers, blowing noses, etc. The pool looks nice but it was a chilly night when we arrived so it was not being used. The hotel is a short walk from a delightful deli where you can get beer/wine/snacks and some hot meals. It's on the pricier side but the food is delicious. Would I stay at this hotel again? Yes, but only on points and I'd try to ask for a room with no one next door.

"New Years visit"

Renee Z, Lancaster, New York 17/01/2018

I recently stayed at this hotel over New Years as I was in town for a football game and beach visit. We visit the area yearly and we always stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Rose the manager. The beach is right across the street, its close to the boardwalk which is great for walking or running. Some of the rooms were a little on the small side however with proximity to beach and boardwalk we spent little time in them. There is a sun trolly stop outside the hotel which takes you up and down the boardwalk. I was delighted to find an array of options at breakfast each day-make your own waffles, fresh fruit, along with vegetarian and gluten free options. This hotel is great if your in town before a cruise as its only a short uber ride to the port or looking for a beach vacation without breaking the bank.

Lisa H, Carmel, Indiana 11/01/2018

We stayed here the night before a cruise. It is close to the airport and cruise port. I would definitely stay here again. The breakfast buffet has lots of options and was well staffed. The hotel is a quick 5 min walk to a nice beach. There are not many dining options near the hotel.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Fort Lauderdale whether you are there to get on a cruise ship, want to enjoy the beach, or just about any other attraction. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and comfortable. They have a bar and restaurant in the lobby. They have quick access to one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. You really can't go wrong with a stay at this hotel.

We stayed both before and after our cruise , over the New Years holidays The lady on front desk called Ullia is fabulous. She was so helpful - finishing us details of the Sun trolley, discount vouchers, advising on Uber, sorting out our best western membership, advising on activities, shops .... she was simply great. So helpful and friendly. Thank you .

Tripsters2, High River, Canada 05/01/2018

Location is of primary importance to us. Oceanside is very close to the beach and the cruise port. I only wish there was a free airport shuttle. We stayed the night before our cruise and the night after the cruise. There is a refreshing pool with lots of loungers but a swim in the ocean was a must. The walk along the beach and marina was absolutely beautiful. The lounge offered a delicious menu and the service was exemplary! The front desk staff, Ullia and Maressa, were amazing! They secured our luggage and even offered to look after our husbands who were lying by the pool, allowing my sister and I to go shopping until our rooms were ready. Ullia and Maressa were very efficient and loads of fun! They answered all our questions with a friendly attitude. The beds were sooo comfy and the complimentary breakfast and service was awesome! We definitely will stay in this hotel again! Thank you Ullia and Maressa!

We stayed here for the night before our cruise. Great access to beach. Rooms were nice. Wish they would have ability to have roll away bed, but rooms are not big enough for roll away, so I understand not having them. Main disadvantage is that they charge 7 dollars per person to get a ride to cruise terminal. We had a group of 10, so this would have been 70 dollars! No thanks. Booked 2 lyfts for 10 bucks (including the tip) each much cheaper (50 bucks less) to get to terminal. Should consider changing this for large groups. Otherwise had no problems. Nice breakfast.

Trevienne B, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, responded to this review
Hello Kara, Thank you for the review of our hotel and its amenities. Our hotel has over 6 different room types and roll away beds are available at an additional cost.The shuttle service called for guests who require transportation does not belong to the hotel, this is an option for guests who like to travel in groups or those that want to have the comfort of a larger vehicle. We do apologize for the inconvenience this caused you and your group and do hope you return to visit us. Sincerely, Trevienne Barrett ( Ms. T) Front Office Manager

Robinob, West Milford, New Jersey 03/01/2018

Stayed here two nights prior to a cruise. Good choice. The price was right and the hotel well above average. Rooms were recently renovated. Nice size. Pool was large. Not the usual best western plus breakfast. Much better than the norm. Bet area was large and also used as the restaurant. Food was very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. They should include a shuttle to the cruise port as part of the price. Many hotels in the area do. I would stay there again.

We were worry because of the storm that had just past ..... but it was a nice place to stay before our cruise. The beds were comfy and they had a nice breakfast set up.You need to get there early because my wife was upset that they ran out of bananas!Other than that the staff was nice and helpful.

My first visit was in April for a cruise and found the location to be great and staff to be exceptional. When we booked our second cruise for December we booked this hotel again and were not disappointed. It is very close to the beach and is on the Sun Trolley route so it makes getting around the city very easy. Rooms are very clean, staff are friendly and the free breakfast has a lot of variety. I would book here again without hesitation!

Lori H, Canada 27/12/2017

Rating this hotel is a little complicated. While I do give this hotel an overal rating of 4 stars I have to give the actual room itself 3 stars. The main floor entrance, lobby, staff, lobby bar (with limited menu) and (free) breakfast area is very nice. While we did not use it, the pool area is also nice with plenty of loung chairs, tables/umbrellas. Also a Great place to sit and relax with a drink and look at the stars at night. It is an older hotel and we found the room a little cramped with a king bed in it. The closet was too small so having our cruise luggage in the main room made things feel a little more cramped. The door opened right into a wall (the closet) with a narrow access hall to the main room. The balcony was nice to sit and relax on however I would have preferred a window that opened so we did not have to have the air conditioner running all night. Bathroom was on the small side. Looks like the fixtures have been updated recently. The cab fare from the airport was $18 (Friday evening) and the fare to the Cruise terminal less than $15 (Sunday noon).

amypW6097JI, United States 26/12/2017

We chose the BW Oceanside Inn for one night post-cruise based on the value and proximity to the beach. The pool is clean and refreshing and the rooms were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an early departure, so we didn't get to experience breakfast, but they did offer an express (to-go) option with a bottled water, fruit and cookies which was very nice. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights pre-cruise. I booked via a 3rd party but emailed the hotel direct several times prior to arriving and always received prompt and helpful replies. All staff members were invariably friendly and helpful. We did have a couple of maintenance issues with our room on arrival which should really have been detected by housekeeping before we arrived but they were addressed immediately and to our satisfaction as soon as we reported them. The included breakfast offered a nice variety of options and the quality was good. I especially enjoyed the fresh yogurt. The location was convenient, within easy walking distance to the water taxi and several restaurants. Overall we felt we got good value for money and would stay again and recommend to others.

mustang4088, Baldwinsville, New York 16/12/2017

I thought this property was Oceanside when actually it is down the road from the beach. You can't even see the ocean from the hotel. That said it is a short walk to the beach. The breakfast had a variety of food, the rooms were large and clean. This is a very busy hotel on the weekends. Many cruisers spend the night before their cruise here.We had to wait quite a while for our room to be ready. It is a bit of a walk to get to any of the local restaurants but there is a bar/restaurant at the hotel. We walked to the Oyster Bar in front of Coconuts which is at the other end of the public beach so it was a bit of a walk. The room next to ours must have been empty and around 11pm the alarm clock started beeping, we called down stair and they came right up and shut it off.

We checked in after getting off our cruise. No rooms were ready, however we were offered towels to sit by the pool. We were also offered breakfast. Rita at the front desk was very helpful. Hotels is having a bit of a makeover at the front This hotel is close to the beach and you can take the trolley to the restaurants just done the street. It is also close to Port Everglades. The bathrooms are small and no room to put toiletries and the elevators are a bit slow. There is a hot breakfast served until 10:30 and we had wings and a salad one night at the bar which was pretty good. The staff at this hotel are very friendly.

MikeHarman, Sunshine Coast, Australia 08/12/2017

Hotel is well located in that it is close to cruise terminal, airport & beach. However it is a 30 minute walk to restaurants & shopping centres. However good quality meals are available at the hotel at a reasonable price & there is good restaurant at the hotel next door. The continental breakfast was excellent with the only criticism that you are supplied with paper plates & plastic cutlery which does nothing to enhance the meal. The rooms are spacious well equipped & clean & come with fridge, microwave, tea/coffee making facilities & a safe. The staff were excellent. Great hotel for pre cruise & close to airport.

We recently stayed 3 nights following a cruise. The hotel is located close to the beach - a very short walk . But is unfortunately a bit out of the way, about a 15-20 minute walk, to restaurants & shops. However there is a good trolley service for $1.00 per ride or $3.00 all day. There is a restaurant on site which we used a couple of nights & the food is good. Rose is always ready to help out. The room was a good size, clean with nice amenities. The balcony overlooked the pool & other hotels but no beach view. On arrival our room was not ready but we were able to put our luggage in storage. The front desk staff were all very helpful & friendly; Ullia & Maressa always ready with a smile. Breakfast is included and it is one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. Particularly liked the fresh fruit. We enjoyed our stay & would stay again. This hotel is good value considering that other hotels in the area are much more expensive

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn on an overnight visit! The front desk supervisor, Ullia Felicien, went out of her way to be helpful in making our stay perfect! We arrived early but she managed to find us a lovely room with little wait. This motel is within a short distance to the cruise ship terminal! The breakfast was great and although we had to checkout at the appointed time, Ullia stored our luggage securely until we were ready to leave. They have a lovely pool and icy lemon water was available at poolside for their guests. The beach is a short walking distance from the motel. All in all, this is a great convenient motel with superior service!

They were smiling and welcoming and put a smile on my face. All the staff is happy and helpful. Rooms are recently redone I think but not top notch - lots of patches in the walls and ceiling that were not done well. Breakfast phenomenal and staff there and at lounge fantastic.

We recently stayed a few nights at the best western oceanside inn. The location is great you are quite close to the beach. This property is starting to show her age. The carpet in the hall ways really needs replacing. Over all the rooms are nice. The pool area is tiny but does the job. The continental breakfast is awesome.

Jean P, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 12/11/2017

In Fort Lauderdale for a conference at a nearby hotel and opted to stay here instead. The price was much more reasonable and the free Internet and breakfast were a big plus. Internet was a little slow but the room was comfortable. There is even a tiny deck outside my room. Although Internet access was not available on the deck, it was a pleasant place to relax (not much of a view though - just another hotel). Check-in and check-out were both quick and pleasant as was the ability to check my luggage during the day. Easily and quickly accessible by Uber from the airport.

jherman771, Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania 09/11/2017

When I arrived, there was a person checking in next to me having a disagreement about swiping their card for a deposit. The woman checking me in seemed distracted as the guy next to me had 3 employees involved. Got to my room and immediately noticed the musty smell in the room. The floor was old tile that had many cracks or chips and needed replaced. The rug between the beds was stained. The wall in the bathroom had a piece of rusted rebar showing through. The free breakfast in the morning was very good, probably the best part of the stay. A variety of hot and cold foods, fruits and drinks.

"September Wedding"

Mana A, Honolulu, Hawaii 05/11/2017

I was in town for a friend's wedding and it was my first time in Fort Lauderdale. The front desk employees were SUPER helpful. I got to the property around 7 in the morning (9/29/17), due to an early flight. I couldn't check-in until 11am (which was awesome because most hotels don't start check-in until 3pm~). The young lady working the desk in the morning gave me a breakfast ticket to grab something to eat although I hadn't technically checked in (big thumbs up). The ladies at the front desk gave awesome recommendations of places to see while there and, without a vehicle, awesome economical means of moving about the area. When I got in to the room, the beds were so soft I quickly fell asleep due to my travels. The bathroom had PLENTY of space for our party of 3. This property is right near the beach and a few fun places to eat nearby, just a quick walk or Uber away. BIG Shout outs to the two ladies who helped me at the front desk (the morning & the graveshift)! This property is fortunate to have them! Will stay here again if I'm ever in Fort Lauderdale

Eric F, Midland, Texas 30/10/2017

Stayed one night pre-cruise. Room was clean and conveniently located. Pool was nice and the free breakfast was also good. Would recommend for anyone staying in the area. Our cruise didnt leave until late in the afternoon and they held our bags in the lobby and allowed us to use the pool while we killed some time.

The rooms were really nice and the staff was very helpful, was really surprised as to the size of the room and the bathroom was much larger than most hotels. We were able to walk along the beach after the rain stopped, walking along the walk area and towards the town area. My sister and I ate dinner in the lobby bar area was very good actually more than either of us could eat, with breakfast the next morning being very good.I would highly recommend the hotel. The only thing that I found totally different was that if you drove you had to pay to park in their parking deck.

the staff was very accommodating, they knew I was sick and went out of their way to accommodate my sickness. i ended up having to last minute get the room for another night and the room was spoken for and they reassigned those people to another room. They were asking me daily how i was feeling, they were making sure I was getting fluids and the waitstaff even got me food and called me when it was ready. the last day for my flight, i wasnt able to connect to uber and they found me a shuttle to get me to airport.

I recently reserved 2 rooms for 3 nights. Richelle & Ullia checked us in & were great, however the entire staff we interacted with were also absolutely wonderful. They were so helpful with recommendations for restaurants & helping us obtain information on various things to do & answering our many questions. They have a great pool (if you have a sensitivity to chlorine-as I do-they use bromine), free breakfast buffet that is large & very good, and a house menu in the bar that is very good & very reasonably priced. The rooms were very nice, comfortable & clean. I highly recommend the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn & would stay there again.

denisemS1694ON, Schererville, Indiana 17/10/2017

First, let me say that the service was great and very friendly. Ullia and Fabian were AMAZING!!!! I booked this through Priceline, and it was rated at 3 1/2 stars. This property is definitely not a 3 1/2 star property - more like a 2-2 1/2 stars. Maybe because renovations were recently done, and/or the reviews are from travelers staying one night before or after a cruise which created this rating. It's not a place to stay for longer than that. I've stayed at hotels of this star quality before, and this one is definitely not of that caliber. There were three computers for use and only one worked; the internet was EXTREMELY slow; the satellite TV didn't have all the channel that were listed in the hotel directory; there was one elevator for the entire hotel which was very slow and the exterior was dumpy/worn looking. I wasn't impressed at all.

sethberry, Leawood 16/10/2017

The Best Western Plus at Oceanside is very nice. Stayed in a King with Balcony. Had a angled ocean view in between a couple of other buildings. My hotel room looked like it has been updated recently. Same with the lobby, breakfast area, and restaurant. Everything was clean and vibrant. Could use a little more attention to detail on the finishes (wall paint on the bathroom trim, inch wide caulk gap between wall and granite countertop, cable channels cutting out periodically). Really close to being perfect, but just a few minor issues. Hotel also was just a short 100 yard walk in between a couple condo buildings from the Marriott Conference Center (in case they are sold out or looking for a cheaper option).

cec311, North Carolina 09/10/2017

Stayed one night at the BW before our Sept. cruise. Hurricane had just went thru Ft. Lauderdale the week before, however the property was clean and you wouldn't have know except for the debris street side. Property was recently remodeled and in great condition. Front desk staff was exteremely friendly and helpful with questions regarding the area. Breakfast was plentiful and hot. I like the waffle makers a lot. We only stayed for one night, but I would definitely chose the BW again if I am in the area.

"BEST HOTEL AND STAFF EVER!!!!! (BEST WESTERN OCEANSIDE INN IS AWESOME!)"

Darlene D, washington dc 03/10/2017

Usually when I stay in Fort Lauderdale, I stay at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, which is right around the corner from the Best Western Oceanside Inn. When I booked my trip, there were not rooms available at the Marriott, so I decided to book a room at the Best Western because I love this end of the FLL Beach. Well I truly do not regret that choice!!! From the moment I confirmed my reservation to the moment we walked into the front doors of the hotel, the staff was beyond wonderful! Ullia and Richelle greeted us with smiles and personality beyond! We arrived at 10am, knowing that our rooms would not be ready by that time, but Ullia said, "Hey, I remember speaking to you! We talked about putting you in room 517!" The fact that she remembered that conversation - knowing that she deals with many guests - blew my mind! They told me that the room wasn't ready, but we could wait and have some breakfast! Well, the breakfast did NOT disappoint. It was awesome. It was as if we had stepped into a breakfast buffet - BUT IT WAS FREE! LOL. After breakfast, we decided to walk to the beach and Ullia offered us beach chairs, a beach umbrella and towels! (Remember - no resort fee. ALL OF THIS IS FREE) Upon returning, our room was ready and let me just say, the room DID NOT DISAPPOINT EITHER! Nice comfortable beds. Full size balcony with chairs overlooking the pool! Big screen television. Beautiful bathroom, fully stocked with thick towels and washcloths. Air conditioning worked GREAT! Every morning the breakfast was on point. Bacon, Sausage, Sausage Gravy and Biscuts, Eggs, Cornbeef and Hash, Grits, Oatmeal, Fruit, Yogurt, Waffles, Sweet Buns and Bread, Orange Juice, Cranberry, Apple, Hot Tea, Coffee... I could go on and on. Then there is a full bar and dining area with a FULL MENU! The bartender David was the best and on the weekend, there was an older woman who was amazing! The food on the menu, delicious. As if you were in a restaurant. Televisions all over so you don't miss any of the news. The pool was fantastic! Beach and lounge chairs. Umbrellas and a double pool deck. I could go on and on and on, but as an avid traveler who lives in Marriott's and loves the resort feel, I have now had my eyes open to a whole new experience. This hotel ROCKS and I will gladly recommend this hotel to any and everyone. Darlene R.

Dorothy A, Detroit 27/09/2017

Like some other reviews there are some updates that are needed and the elevator is s little slow BUT the customer service is A+. We arrived early after a cruise and received a early check-in. Once in the room we realized we'd prefer a balcony room. A request to the front desk agent Ullia Felicien was quickly honored. She and the rest of the staff including housekeeping were just really great. There's a really good free breakfast, hotel pool, awesome bar and grill on-site. The best amenity is the <3 minute walk to the beach and the motel supplies towels, umbrellas, & beach chairs. There are a ton of "beach resorts " in the area, my advice is to skip them and come here, you won't regret it.

Got a special price on Travelzoo and was pleasantly surprised at the great location near the beach and the amenities at the hotel. My room had a nice little balcony overlooking the pool, and the food and drinks I had at the bar were really good. Just under 15 minutes from the airport and it was very easy to get a Lyft to go to dinner and to the airport. Also within a half hour walk to a drugstore.

Loved this hotel! Steps away from the beautiful beach. The room was spotless and all plumbing worked great. Beds were very comfy with extra pillows. Shower water pressure was fine. Bathroom lighting was superb for putting on makeup! The pool deck looked sooo inviting but we simply didn't have time to enjoy it as we arrived after it had closed for the night. Staff were very polite, and there was no waiting at check in or check out. Breakfast was tasty and fresh with excellent variety. Room had fridge and micro.

This was a last minute booking and it was a nice surprise. The hotel looks like it has been recently updated with the room, lobby and other public spaces very clean and modern looking. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and internet worked great. The complementary breakfast had the typical items as most hotels, and it was appreciated as breakfast can be pricey in tourist areas.

I stayed two nights here and was very satisfied with the value for the money. The hotel is a quick 3 minute walk from the beach. They have a moderately priced restaurant on the grounds.

We stayed two different nights during our visit and enjoyed both nights. The staff was friendly and helpful. I wasn't real crazy about paying for parking but it was in a secure area and the price was somewhat reasonable.The place was clean and inviting.

Ullia Felicien at the front desk took care of us like family. She was very attentive and to our needs and went the extra mile to help us extend our stay. The hotel is clean, location is great, and still a good value for the money. We will come back next year and strongly recommend this hotel for value oriented travelers that want to enjoy a great beach at reasonable prices. Thanks again Ullia!

Uilla felicien is one of the best front desk agent that I have ever met.

"Rooms too small"

richardjE3163AD, Chatsworth, United States 13/08/2017

The staff was great. But the rooms were way too small for what we paid for. You can get larger rooms for the amount we paid for. We also had some issues with the price of the room. We were going to have to pay over 140.00 more because of some goof up with Hotels.com. But we were helped the best they could do.

"Group stay"

User 09/08/2017

I chose this hotel to host my family reunion in Ft. Lauderdale (30 rooms). The group sales manager position changed 3 times over the course of the 9 months that I worked with them to plan the lodging for my event. However, they were all very accommodating and helpful. There was never a lapse in service. Besides being one of the more affordable options on the beach, I chose this hotel because the rooms were newly renovated and in very good condition. Also, the breakfast buffet (which was included) had gotten good reviews (well deserved). The breakfast was very good and had an assortment of hot foods. This saved a great deal in money and convenience. My only complaint was that at check-in we were told that there would be an additional charge per night if there was going to be more than 2 people in a room. I had never heard of such a thing (they were all rooms with 2 queen sized beds). This was not something that was communicated up front, nor had I asked about when I agreed to have my group stay here. The group sales manager tried to explain that this was fairly standard. I've stayed at many hotels and had never heard of such a policy. Besides this hiccup, the stay was very nice. I would stay again.

The rooms are older, but clean. There was a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. We also had a balcony to look over the traffic and the water across the way.

This reasonably priced location is a MUST! 3 minutes walking to the beach which is clean and beautiful. Full breakfast and clean rooms. I honestly like the upper floors better because of size and location of air conditioner. Ullia & Rita were the ones to turn to for a room change. (Bottom floor rooms pool side were nice but we needed a change) they worked their magic to find us a better room. David rocked the bar! He will know how to get your drinks right! Shower good, need comfortable, pool has shallow and deep end. The upper level rooms have 3 different sets of electrical sockets with 2 SUB ports too! Right by the bed too! I highly recommend this hotel for ease of walking to dinner or the quick 15 minute drive from the airport.

Trips-nl, St. John's, Canada 22/07/2017

I rated this hotel 3 because it is an old hotel with some renos completed .The bedroom was nice but the bathroom walls in the room I was in need to be updated . The old walls were painted over as was the door . Door should have been replaced . Otherwise I would give this hotel a 4 for the staff, pool and breakfast meal The staff were professional and friendly . The pool was always clean and plenty of towels . The breakfast was great . Kitchen area was spotless and updated and always fresh food ..Also it was a 2 min walk to the beach and approx 5-10 to the boardwalk . Nice location . It is approx 10 - 15 min drive from the Fort Lauderdale airport . I book this hotel through its own reservation office as I thought I would get a good price for the room compared to the booking sites ie: hotel. com etc. . I do think the room was overpriced especially when you have to convert from Canadian funds to American funds . The reservation person at the online booking was female and was very friendly and patient . I would give her a 5 for her patience and understanding . Would I stay there again - yes. I booked this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor .

Quick check in, nice staff, excellent breakfast, clean and nice rooms. Excellent location, steps from the beach. The only downside was the 15-dollar parking charge per day. For Expedia users caution, Expedia offered the free breakfast as a bonus or special offer and wouldn't let us change the type of room from a two double bed room to a king size bed room because of the "special offer". Don't fall for it, free breakfast buffet is free and included in this hotel

The room was not fresh at all. I opened the door and the smell just took my breath away. We had to leave immediately. I tried to open the patio door just to get some air and you could not open it at all. The bathroom was not cleaned. The cost of the room was over rated- 176.85 for room and parking. We left that same day - I suppose to have gotten my refund but no word as of yet. I would not recommend it.

We stayed the night before leaving on a cruise for 8 days out of Port Everglades. The room was clean and pleasant.

This little hotel was very nice and very reasonable. It was clean, very nice and rooms updated . It's priced like a 3 star but you get a 4 star worth . Stay in a room facing the pool if you can and higher up. Many families stayed here and there were many people going on cruises . It's close to everything but you have to walk about 15 minutes to get to the main strip where all the action is. Very quiet at night. The pool is small but very clean and nice patio furniture . Restaurant was really good too. The breakfast was good . The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel and it was full of seaweed bc your on a public beach . However, if you walk just 10 minutes your on a nice beach . South beach Miami in my opinion is better.

Big Kahuna C, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 22/06/2017

This is our third stay at this Best Western. We arrived early and the staff offered to store our luggage. We changed into our swim gear and walked to the beach. The beach is about a 7 minute walk from hotel door to ocean water. Easy enough to find your way there. Remember to get your towels from the front desk before you leave. BW is right next door to the B Hotel ,you may pass it on your way to the beach. This section of the beach suited us well and we always found a space to call our own. The BW also has a heated swimming pool which is usually not crowded. However, you may want to bring bug spray as while in this area as we were bitten a few times while watching our kids in the pool. Be aware that the wifi is sketchy in the rooms, however, they do have a few computers that guests may use. Also be very aware that the hot water is really hot, so you may want to supervise younger children when they are using the water. We enjoyed a few snacks from the lounge which were pretty good. We also went on the Sun Trolley ($1) to Publix to buy a few reasonably priced snacks and beverages. We also enjoyed the breakfast at BW. They offered many choices (7 - 10:30 am) and had pleasant staff. In the evenings we either walked into town (15 min) for dinner or ordered delivery. The staff at BW are willing to answer questions and offer suggestions. Would we stay here again? Maybe, we love the breakfast and the location!!

Quintessential beach hotel. Really made the stay enjoyable. Clean, great breakfast, conveniently located, great friendly staff. We made the comment to each other that we hope to find more hotels like this one on future trips. Smaller hotel with great amenities!

My family of four stayed here the night before our cruise and the day we returned. I was initially disappointed in the fact that they did not offer a shuttle to and from the airport. But I will list some pros and cons Pros: *friendly staff, room was clean and ready for us at check in when we arrived on our first day around 3pm. *Breakfast was the best I have ever seen in a hotel. Anything an adult or picky child would want. Biscuits and gravy, waffles, eggs, bagels and the list goes on. *The day we returned from the cruise we arrived around 0930. We knew our room wouldn't be ready but they allowed us to store our luggage to explore until they called to inform us it was ready at a typical time of 3pm. Our room was ready by 1130am and they called to tell me so. *Walking distance to the beach Cons: *The air conditioner did not work very well. We stayed in a pool side room which appeared to be a more older part of the hotel. It sounded like a running toilet all throughout the night and smelled like mildew. When we turned it down to 66 and it still didn't cool the room, I went to the desk. They sent maintenance and said it wasn't cool in the room because the vents were putting upwards instead of out towards the room. I didn't argue and just dealt with it. *The meal prices at the bar were a little over priced for the quality. *Being a pool side room, there was a constant light shining in our room. The curtains didn't close well enough to block it to allow adequate sleep before we woke at 4am to catch our flight out. *The closest shops or restaurants were approximately 15-20 min walk down the road. Not ideal for walking when pop up storms decide to show it's face!

The hotel is well located and comfortable. The breakfast was good and the snack bar was handy. A true restaurant would be a great addition. The pool was a good size. A hot tub would be nice. We enjoyed the upper deck.

tdatiger, Richmond, Virginia 13/06/2017

I stayed at this Best Western Plus Oceanside. I got a CRAZY good deal. BEACH: There is no view to the ocean. I think you could hear the water a little. It really is right at the beach - just a hotel between it and the ocean. You can walk in front OR behind the B-hotel and you are right on the public beach. Perfect. For me, a person with bad knees, it was a short enough walk around the front that you could bring a light "bag chair" and a lunchbox for food/drink. POOL: I enjoyed the pool. It was clean and not crowded when I was there. There are some rooms that open right out to the pool. BREAKFAST: It was the usual continental breakfast at BW hotels. ok - but hey, it's free. STAFF: ALL so very friendly and pleasant. That is there main asset. ROOMS: It was average but cute. I liked it. I had a room that opened out to the SHARED sun deck, which was a great size. It felt like I had a huge personal balcony of my own because it was pretty empty. I loved the sundeck. The only thing is if you are staying on the sundeck, I would not leave the sliding door open while out the room or at night. It seems like people could just wander into your room if they wanted. LOCATION: There are not many restaurants within the few blocks around the hotel. There is a restaurant on the premises, and the hotels on the same block I believe. However, there is a bus stop right at the hotel and for $1 you can get a trolley up the street for a wider variety. CLEANLINESS: Now this was the problem - They do not pay attention to detail overall. The room appears clean at first glance, but you can tell they did not do a thorough job. I could tell that the carpet had not been vacuumed. Also, the tile floor was not mopped in forever it seemed. The surfaces were not wiped off good. There were crumbs from previous people. The "clean" tv remote had food smeared on it. That type of thing. They were so friendly and offered to change my room, I didn't feel like changing. NOTE: I am a little picky about cleanliness, but this did not deter me from staying in the room. They REALLY need to work on that. I went to breakfast twice. Sunday, the lady cleaning the tables was so friendly talking to guests that she didn't notice the dirty tables. There were plenty of tables, but barely any was cleaned off. I went to breakfast on Tuesday and it was the opposite. Different worker. Cleaned off tables. I am not going to say I wouldn't stay here again - I would definitely return if it I came across a good deal.

The Best Western Plus was a perfect place to stay just before heading out on a cruise the next day. I would recommend it 100%! The location was great with just a hop and a skip around the corner to the beach and/or a nice walk down the strip to restaurants and shopping too! The price was great considering this location! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat - whether it be before a cruise or even for a longer visit! the staff was very pleasant and our was neat and clean! The complimentary breakfast was nice too as they offered a bit more for the "typical" complimentary option.

rosaria g, Dyer, Indiana 16/05/2017

We chose the Best Western because it was reasonably priced, close to the beach and had complimentary hot breakfast. Let's start with the breakfast! Excellent! Scrambled and hard-boiled eggs , ham, sausage corned beef hash, make your own waffle, delicious fresh strawberries, bananas, oranges grapes, and so much more!!! We arrived at 10:00 a.m. and our wonderful room was ready. We were also given breakfast vouchers and were able to eat breakfast that same morning. The service in all areas of the hotel is impeccable. Special thanks to Miss T, Rose, and Rafael for making our stay more enjoyable. We stayed here 4 nights post cruise and will be back again! The pool area is clean. the small restaurant on premises has many choices. The best part is, it is within walking distance to the beach! They provide, towels, umbrellas and chairs (you do have to carry them). It is also perhaps less than a mile walk to all the restaurants etc. on Atlantic Blvd. You can also take the trolley if you don't want to walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Kelly T, Adelaide, Australia 10/05/2017

We stayed here on our trip to the USA. Everything in the hotel was perfect, breakfast was better than expected. My only problem was the cleaning of our room, they always forgot something, bin didn't get emptied or bed wasn't made, towels still on the floor daily. Plus when we went back to our room after breakfast the door was wide open and no one was around except the cleaner 6 doors down. We are always very conscience making sure the doors are locked. Other than this I would definitely stay again as everything else was perfect.

This hotel is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in the Ft. Lauderdale beach area. Ullia, front desk agent, was absolutely wonderful & very accommodating. Andriy at the bar/lounge was very nice also! The hotel has a very inviting resort feel to it! Hotel is so cute, pool is nice & warm, extremely comfy beds, amazing breakfast buffet! They also provide towels, beach chairs & umbrellas to you at NO COST! There is also no resort fee involved either! The beach is literally a 1 minute walk right behind the hotel. The location is absolutely perfect, a short walk or Uber to all the restaurants/shops, and not overcrowded with tourists either! The beach location behind the hotel was nice and quiet, not overcrowded! I highly recommend staying at this hotel! It's definitely much better than the other ones in Ft. Lauderdale beach - I've stayed at the Westin down the street and the customer service and experience was not worth the amount I paid to stay there. The Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for the perfect experience! My boyfriend and I will return very soon!

Brenda Mike D, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada 25/04/2017

We stayed at the Best Western Oceanside for The Easter long weekend. We read the reviews in advance but was shocked to find how run down our room was when we booked a 5 night stay. The king bed had obviously been two smaller beds put together with a hump in the middle forcing you to roll off because of the angle of the make-shift bedding to compensate. We had found multiple hairs in our shower on check in which in itself was very well used with the porcelain wearing off. The pool chairs were outdated with strips for support in all the wrong places. The pool didn't seem to have a cleaner. Overall the hotel needs an update. The breakfast included was the only good thing.

Beds were very comfortable. Pool was heated and actually had a DEEP end. If we had some sun, the sun deck would have been a great place to hang out. Beach is very close and just a short walk away.

Great location, even greater breakfast included! Easy parking at affordable cost. Easy access to the beach, just not ocean view (only thing I can complain about!). Nice area, easy access to a lot of places in Miami area. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms and free wi fi (for the teenager that can't live without!). Good value for the price!

Very surprised at the whole thing. It's a mid-range to budget motel but was really nice for what we needed it for. The staff was really nice and attentive. We enjoyed the place from the pool to the bar to the very nice breakfast. This place was really good.I would recommend this place to all and will come back.

Our flight came in at 6 AM, and the staff was kind enough to give us an early check-in. Our outgoing flight was at 10 PM, and they held our bags for us while we went to the beach for the day. Everyone was super friendly. The room was clean, comfy beds, nice hot shower. This hotel was perfect for a 3 day beach get away. Right on the bus line up and down the coast so you don't even need a car. Breakfast was great!

_megheadjames, Columbus, Ohio 12/04/2017

I usually go on here to read not only what other people have experienced, but to give some insight of what I experienced too. I read a previous review that was good but misleading. I must say I have to agree... to some extent. I had a very similar experience here at this property. This hotel has a great breakfast selection and served its purpose as being one of the better places to be for the Tortuga Music Festival.on the last day, I was in the lobby waiting for my friends ( fellow country music fans) and I was in shock by how the Front desk clerks handled themselves. Im not sure of their names ( sorry) But there was one young lady in particular with glasses and she seemed to be on top of it. Everyone was trying to get the cheap way out and have the same $15 parking. She made it very clear to me on the previous day, that it was going to be $45 so I didnt have a problem with it. I sat there and watch room after room try to give every excuse as to why they should pay the cheaper rate. But she smiled and kept her composure. I would have probably flipped after the tenth person. The other clerk didnt seem like she knew how to handle all the pressure. I overheard her mention she was new and didnt know how everything worked. And though I agree with other reviewee, it can be misleading, but like the clerk said on Sunday, she as well as other front desk staff are new. So i think the girl with the glasses handled security, the chaos of us drunk country folks, i heard of the same ding dong ditchers, ( she said not on my watch) all while being very much pregnant. I'm not sure if she was Miss T but she certainly handled herself like a manager. And between her, Rose at the bar, and the housekeeper with the blonde hair they really deserve the extra praise. I will be back next year for not just the great amenities but the excellent staff. THUMBS UP FROM OHIO!!

User 10/04/2017

We chose to stay at this hotel because of its close proximity to the Tortuga Music Festival. We spent over $350 a night and were hoping for the best. We knew that it was going to be a big, busy weekend, but we did not expect for our room not to get cleaned and to keep our car for a couple extra hours to get charged $45! We stayed for 3 days and two nights and on the second day when we returned from a long 13 hour day we came back to our room not having been cleaned. We went down to the front desk and the clerk explained to us that someone had put the do not disturb sign on our room (untrue) and that he would see if someone could fix it. Well it did not get fixed but we did get a few towels because it was late. To add insult to injury, that night our floor was extremely loud with many ding dock ditchers. On the bright side We found out the next morning that those people got kicked out. When it came time to check out, originally we were told by the manager Miss T we had until 11pm the day of check out to receive our car or else we would be charged $15.90 or else our car would be towed. Well when we went downstairs we were told that it would be $45 because we were not considered hotel guests anymore. We had no choice, but to pay it. When asked to speak to the manager about it, the front desk girl told us that the manager was new and didn't know about the protocol for tortuga weekend which is why she told us incorrect information. Ultimately she should have honored the original price, but she did not. We are upset about having to pay $45 to park our car for 4 hours. Upsides: Close to the entrance of the music festival The complimentary breakfast is very good. The bed is comfortable.

The Best Western Plus Oceanside is a wonderful hotel! Rooms are clean and breakfast is included (and quite good!). The hotel has a bar/lounge with some food service, although the hours of the food service are not very late - I think they are open to 10 on Friday and Saturday nights.The hotel is very close to the beach as well as the water taxi stop (#7). I would highly recommend staying here.

This hotel was within walking distance of the beach and some restaurants which was a plus. You had to pay extra for parking. The pool was nice and so was the breakfast. Bathroom was a bit small and no hairdryer available. Balcony was nice to sit on to enjoy the weather, but the view wasn't great.

As is normal practice, upon arrival at the hotel I registered my credit card details with reception. This was the ONLY time my card was registered or used during our entire holiday. Upon return to the UK there was an answer phone message from the card provider which identified suspect transactions on my card. I checked and there had been 2 fraudulent purchases made in Florida totalling over £550. Draw your own conclusions!!

"Under the Radar Gem!"

Ron8, Boston, Massachusetts 23/11/2016

Last spring, my wife and I booked a Caribbean cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. And we wanted to arrive in Florida a couple of days ahead of our departure, you know, to get into the mood. But, where to stay with so many choices? So, we began with date availabilities, then with prices, location, amenities and we found our spot. But wait! You say it's a Best Western that had its heyday way back when, right? I must admit that such a thought went through my mind. But, the things that mattered from our list and more were all met by this place: It's next door to the beach and about a five-minute ride to Port Everglades where the cruise ships depart and return. We were quite surprised when we checked in and made our way to our room. The lobby and bar (doubles as a restaurant) were clean and updated. We never used the pristine pool--could have--that's adjacent to the sun-splashed spot where all the guests devoured every morsel of the more than ample complimentary breakfast. The walls of the hallway appeared to be freshly-painted with muted grays on the walls and cream-colors on the doors. Light fixtures appeared to be recently installed. Our room was nicely appointed, with an updated bathroom, plenty of the right kind of towels--the ones that actually dry you off--and comfy pillows and bed. And FREE HBO! All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. So, how good is this place? We cancelled a reservation at another spot and booked one here for when our cruise ship returns to port. Congrats to all of the crew at Best Western Oceanside Inn in Fort Lauderdale!

Close to Port Everglades. Only 10-15 minutes by shuttle bus. Quiet hotel with its own pool and breakfast buffet. A little bit far to everything else except some fish restaurants and harbor where you can take a fishing trip from.A perfect start for the cruise from Port Everglades. Affordable.

Get a room away from the pool. For some reason, the music played loudly by the pool for the ENTIRE night. Room was average. Bed was not very comfortable. Average service at the front desk - they weren't rude, but also weren't the most pleasant. The beach is close, but you have to walk a block for access - there is no direct access from the hotel. There is a bar that serves a good selection of food until after 10pm. This is nice, because there aren't very many restaurants in the immediate vicinity. There are no free shuttles, but they offered to help us arrange transportation to the cruise terminal. Uber is quick and cheap from the airport or cruise terminal, though, and was much less expensive than their quoted price for a shuttle.

This gem of a hotel is a $20 taxi ride from the airport and a $7 shuttle ride to the pier. It is on the trolley route to local shopping and a 5 minute walk from a great beach park. The included breakfast has the best selection and quality of any hotel we have stayed in. I am celiac and was abe to find plenty of choices! The restaurant on site has great options and was very good value for the money. Staff were extremely helpful and fun. The front desk staff could not have done anymore to help us enjoy our stay. The hotel was having fire systems testing and finishing up with some upgrading - but it did not negatively impact our stay. We actually could see the beach between the buidlings in our room - 507 - but this is not beachfront - but just as close as you can get. The price was great. We will be using this hotel on our future stays and would receommend this to any of our friends and family.

We had a nice stay at this hotel. We had rooms on the 5th floor, not much of a view, but the rooms are renovated and were clean. The beds were comfortable. It is within walking distance to the beach. They have a nice bar and a great bartender (when we were there). They provide free breakfast in the morning and it was a complete breakfast, lots to choose from and plenty of seating. There was a nice pool area with outdoor seating. Elevators were very slow. Parking is extra but there is a covered parking area. It is small and I noticed some cars parked outside of the parking spaces, so I imagine they arrived after the garage was full. We would definitely stay here again.

Yes, it is an older hotel. But it is in very nice condition, at a wonderful location just yards from the Fort Lauderdale Beach, with very reasonable prices. An easy walk takes to to many delightful restaurants, although the bar food selections at the hotel are meal sized and quite well prepared. The hotel staff are all wonderful, from Rafael who ably assisted us at check-in to Nikko at the bar who ensure the kitchen staff would hang just a bit late to make us some dinner after our delayed flight, to all the house-keeping staff who helped make our stay delightful. The complimentary hot breakfast was fresh and filling. Definitely would stay here again!!

We recently stayed here for four nights and have no complaints. The rooms are on the large side, clean and quiet. Softer type mattresses on the beds (We were in two different rooms). Breakfast was included and was more than adequate. We had a salad with Mahi Mahi in the grill and it was awesome and reasonably priced. The location is perfect. A walk to the beach? less than 5 minutes. Another walk to 2 nearby seafood restaurants 3030 and Sea level..both pricy but worth it. Staff friendly and helpful. A solid 4 star rating. .

At first glance it seems to be a normal hotel. The rooms are clean and the breakfast buffet has a big choice of options. Including fresh fruits. But you have to pay a high fee for parking. During our stay it was 15$ + tax, in total 15.99$ per night!!! And there is no free parking around. The service is not trained and most of them are not professional. We believe you can find a better hotel in this area.

Picked this hotel for price and proximity to the Beach. Pleasantly surprised with the Room (4th floor, overlooking Pool ). Clean and comfortable mattress. Also, the hot breakfast was a nice extra, with egg, sausage, ham, waffles, toast etc. Turn right going out the front door and you are less than 2 minutes walk to the beautiful beach. The walkway along the beach is awesome and , if you keep going, only 15 minute walk to the restaurants at the end of Las Olas Blvd. ( If you have a car, parking is $15 per day.)

coumaris, Washington DC, District of Columbia 20/10/2016

There are limited upgrades available for elites. The suite would be the 1 room to book for $ if available. It's excellent value. Otherwise demand a pool view room with larger bath. Most rooms look at a building wall and most baths are too tiny for 2 people. It is a fresh-remodel well done. Absolutely put the "do-not-disturb" sign out or housekeeping will be opening your door at 8 am. If the desk is inattentive try another person a little later. The women working the desk are extremely nice and helpful. The free breakfast is outstanding and the garage is great and only $15 (free for elites!). Beach access is arkward. The best feature of the hotel is that it faces the Marriott Resort with it's beautiful private beach and outdoor facilities with open access. (The B Resort behind the hotel is pitiful). Price out the Marriott and this hotel and the savings are substantial usually, especially with parking and breakfast. If they're not substantial choose the Marriott. The best feature at this part of the beach is unlike the huge hotels on center beach, the beach is not a public one across the street. The available Marriott beach next door is outstanding.

Gotpride, Rochester, NY 17/10/2016

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn in October of 2016 for one night pre cruise and two nights post cruise. All of the staff I encountered at this hotel were extremely friendly and accommodating, from the front desk staff at check in, Omar and Sirena were a joy to deal with, to the bar staff, Rose ( who makes the best Bloody Mary's in most likely the entire state of Florida, to Tom and also Nico, to the wonderful smiling housekeeping staff on the 2nd Floor. The location of the hotel was great with just a short walk to the beach and access to the Sun Trolley right outside. The rooms were recently redone as well as the rest of the property. Probably one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have every slept in. The room had a great TV with a wonderful picture and decent range of channels. Our room opened onto the sun deck on the second floor overlooking the pool and was complete with sun loungers and a table with umbrella and four chairs. The breakfast that was included was fresh and hearty with a great selection of items to chose from. This was my first stay at a Best Western and I was duly impressed and will certainly chose BW again when travelling. Final thoughts, this hotel is a hidden gem, easily missed amid the larger resort type hotels in the same vicinity, give them a try....you will not be disappointed!

If you don't mind the walk, this is a good compromose between high price and convience. The pool is fantastic, and they have a bar/restaruant (Which I didn't use).

We stayed here just 2 weeks ago and loved everything about the stay! The rooms were very comfortable, beautiful colors and very clean. We checked in with ease and was greeted at the front desk by the most friendly amazing woman named Serena, she desreves a 5 star herself!***** Serena, always smiling, always helpful and very friendly and knowledgeable! The patio off our room was the greatest, overlooking the pool, it was my go to spot at night and early mornings with my tea. The breakfast was delicious as well as the lunch menu items..the best sweet potato fries! Awesome drinks served by some awesome bartenders, Niko, Rosa just to mention a couple. We will definitely stay here again when travelling to Florida

Only $135 including taxx at AAA rate, a block from the beach, with free breakfast, wifi, pool, and premium TV channels. Also has a nice bar. Originally was booked across street but had to cancel, this place was great

Room was comfortable and there was a deck, although not much of a view. Only a minute walk to the beach. I did not visit the pool, bar or restaurant but all looked inviting. Key card access to the back elevator was a little slow - but it did work.

Booked this Hotel for one night. Rooms are roomy and comfy. Beds are super soft. Service is great. Breakfast is excellent. Dined at the Hotel bar, food is great but overpriced, as well as Drinks (Cocktails $8 to $10,-), this is why only 4 Stars. 1 Block from the beach, 2 Blocks to Water Taxi and Jungle Queen.

A nice and pleasant place with professional staff. Lobby interior was very welcoming, quick check-in, rooms are ok, no issues. It is about 5-min walk to the ocean. The beach was clean and pleasant. The only thing we did not quite enjoy was the breakfast.

It looks old from the outside and the Front Desk is also not fancy. Room are great and spacious and beds are comfy. Staff was friendly. Food and Drink prices at the Hotel Bar/Restaurant are to high. Breakfast was amazing. Close to the Beach and Water Taxi.

nice basic hotel, great breakfast, accommodating staff. They allowed me to check in at 1:30, even though check-in was not supposed to be allowed until 3. Great food in lounge. Checked my bags early so that I could sight see. Nice boardwalk on Dania beach

I stayed 5 nights for a business trip. Got a corner room on the top floor with a partial ocean view. I was pleased with the room as it was good sized and comfortable. The view was indeed partial but I still enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking coffee. The only downside was the air-conditioner was noisy but I turned it off at night and slept fine. The breakfast was pretty good including eggs and meat every day. The bar and grill was great. Be sure to try the Cuban sandwich and the blacken Mahi Mahi sandwich. Close to the beach in a great location. I would recommend and stay here again at the price.

I stayed here for six nights with a co-worker and had a slow rough start upon checking in. Called the front desk, they fixed it within minutes. Raphael at the front desk was overly helpful. Anthony came up to the room and was very pleasant. Leila down in the breakfast bar was very sweet and kind. Rose at the bar is amazing next time you're here you've got to check her out she's funny has been there for 20 years very sweet very kind woman... ask her for " the rose cocktail " next time you're here.. room was clean. .staff was very accommodating. I would absolutely stay there again !

No complaints really, hotel well kept, very short distance/walk to beach. Also plenty of food & beverage places with in walking distance, except once you eat something at the hotel restaurant you may not want to eat any where else. Actually surprised at quality of food,(only served lunch & dinner), but very good. The breakfast buffet was typical BW setup, little better than other BW I stayed at, but what do you expect for free. it will get you going in the morning if your a cheapy like me, otherwise there was a Denny's a mile or 2 away that was good. Would stay there again, hopefully get there for pleasure & not business again.

"Best Pre Cruise Hotel in Fort Lauderdale!!!! Sept. 2016"

SatelliteTravel, Georgia 21/09/2016

I own a travel agency and do a lot of group cruises and always do a pre cruise hotel, and this one is one of the best I have done business with over the last 23 years. If you have a small group you need to get in touch with Jillian the sales manager and she will take very good care of your group. She met all of our needs plus 2. She is very professional to work with. The hotels in FFL are dated badly, but this one has been upgraded, and the rooms are extremely nice. The rooms feel like they're all brand new!!! Breakfast here is no joke. Best Breakfast buffet we have all been to in a very long time. Items you would never see at other hotels. The pool is really good. The staff gives you towels, so no need to bring your own. The ocean is a 2 min walk and is VERY SAFE. The whole area seemed very safe. The whole staff wa
