"Safe location close to beach."
nathanjobrien, 18 Février 2024

Our family enjoyed the heated pool, delicious breakfast and friendly service. The location was great. Nice easy walk to a very large beach. We had a 2nd floor room which went out to a large patio overlooking the pool area. Overall our family had a great time!

"One of the best hotels I have stayed in"
Jean B, 16 Février 2024

Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. They are steps from the beach, a walkable distance to restaurants, shops, water taxi, etc. The staff was friendly, attentive and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.

"Clean, walking distance to beach and restaurants"
2022_Graham, 12 Février 2024

We stayed here for 3 days in February 2023 after a cruise. We stayed again for one night this past week (February 2024) this time before a cruise. Both times the property and rooms were clean and staff friendly. Breakfast is busy and standard variety (they do have a sign offering gluten and dairy free options which I thought was so helpful). Pool is nice. Bar food is mediocre at best. We walk down to the beach and eat at the local restaurants when we're there. There is an electric bike rental spot not far so you can rent bikes and venture farther. Walking distance to water taxi if you want to explore. We enjoyed that also. It's a great spot, close to everything. It's not high end (meaning could use new carpets, has some stains) but it's clean, no issues and our go-to place when in town. Only thing - they charge $20+ a day for parking your car there. Last year we flew and didn't have our car. This year we drove and they got me for the $22 car fee. I do like it's at least a security access spot on the side so not easily accessible by those walking by and key card access only.

"Good atmosphere"
862Tina395, 08 Février 2024

The hotel is real close to the beach but not on the beach. It has a great complimentary breakfast. The decor is great but you can tell it wasn't redone recently. The building isn't the newest but it is nice enough. Good atmosphere. Close to Jungle Queen.

"Fort Lauderdale Beach Getaway!"
igtgoal, 30 Janvier 2024

Loved this Hotel so quiet and peaceful but also so close to the action, about a 15 minute delightful beach walk to the Elbow Room strip. Robert at reception was wonderful! All staff excellent in this clean and comfortable property! Also a great value, 4 star experience at a great price point! Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway! Buffet breakfast beyond compare!

"Bugs, Stink, and Dirt"
SueB173, 30 Janvier 2024

We checked out of this hotel three nights early because our room was cramped, dirty, and smelled like old feet. While the staff seemed kind and attentive, this hotel needs a whole revamp. They've obviously redone the lobby and breakfast area, but the rest of the hotel is outdated and dirty. We also had no hot water for the first day of our stay. It wouldn't even come out of the tap. I washed my hands in the ground floor bathroom and wasn't able to get the soap off as there was no water at all. While we didn't have roaches in our room (that I saw, anyway), three of our friends (in three separate rooms) checked out immediately upon entering the rooms and seeing multiple roaches on the walls and lamps. The location of the hotel was good if you're hoping to enjoy the beach -- it's a three-minute walk away. But the hotel is quite loud as it's on a busy road. Breakfast was okay and had gluten- and dairy-free options, which was nice. The staff were friendly and seemed generally helpful, although we had to fight to leave three nights early without a penalty. Considering the state of the room and our friends' rooms, they should have definitely understood and never attempted to charge us a penalty.

"Always very good"
Karin1951, 29 Janvier 2024

Staff is very helpful when you arrive early. We had to wait for our room and were told that we could use the pool while we waited. Friendly staff. Needed a taxi for 8 people and the front desk helped us out. Breakfast is one of the best and included in the price. A huge variety of items to choose from including making your own waffles, bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, oatmeal, cereal, muffins, fruit, etc. All was very good.

"Dirty Tired Buggy Motel"
12bek81266, 29 Janvier 2024

Please don't think you are getting a good deal when you book at the Best Western. This is a very tired looking hotel. The prices for hotels is high in Fort Lauderdale, but this one is NOT worth it. Roaches are in the rooms and hall ways. Who knows about the kitchen where the breakfast is made! The halls are dirty the rooms are tired, the bathroom in tiny and there is not much storage. There were 3 of us staying for 3 nights and it was crowded in the room. There is no view of the beach or ocean, though it is only a few steps away. There are no beach amenities, so you have to sit on your tiny beach towel or rent from the bigger hotels next door. Do yourself a favor and spend a bit more to stay on the beach or stay outside the city and drive to the beach....not worth it!

"Great location, clean and good value"
II_Traveler_II, 02 Octobre 2023

This is my 3rd stay at this Best Western, and it is reliably the best value for the location. Clean, updated and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner are both good, and 3 minute walk to the Ft Lauderdale beach. All staff excellent, as was the case the last two times (from Front desk, to bar, to breakfast staff).

"Great place to stay"
Ann H, 22 Septembre 2023

We had one night in this hotel before flying back to the UK and it ticked all the boxes. We arrived way before check in but they let us have our room as it was ready. The room had everything you needed for a comfortable stay including a microwave. The free breakfast was good and we sat by the pool for the afternoon being entertained by the iguanas that presumably live there. Staff were very helpfu. The only downside was that the hotel restaurant wasn't open on the night we stayed.

"Little piece of heaven"
pgarcia837, 21 Septembre 2023

Great place for the value, only steps away from the beach. I travel for work but at the end of the day I need a place where I can relax and this hotel did it. Will definitely be back, parking prices are affordable for being on the beach which is a plus.

"Surpassed any expectations!"
408arelip, 12 Septembre 2023

The staff alone is why you should stay. The breakfast was yummy. The rooms were clean. The restaurant downstairs is cozy and clean. The pool was clean and you even got free views of the native iguana! I loved everything about this hotel!

"Great experience for the money"
kingreggie961, 12 Septembre 2023

Great staff, clean rooms, convenient location. I'll definitely stay here again. Only downside was the air in the room wasn't as cool as I'd like it. We called maintenance but the temperature didn't go down any. The hallway was cooler than our room (510)

"Newly Renovated, clean and comfortable"
JimR402, 07 Septembre 2023

Was pleasantly surprised by the refurbishment of this hotel. They have and are still putting a lot of effort into updating it and doing a great job! The hotel is bright, colorful and cheerful. The staff is friendly and welcoming. My double room was newly renovated and though you could see remnants of the former interior, it was bright, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and seemed to have a higher quality than many Best Western hotels I've visited. The pool and deck were nice and clean and there was plenty of parking. Though I did not eat at the restaurant, the menu seemed adequate. The hotel is within a 15 minute walk or 3-4 minute drive to all the restaurants and bars on the strip and it's a nice walk along the beach to these, and a 10 minute drive to everything on 17th street. The room rate was very reasonable for hotels on the beach and I will definitely stay there again.

"Marissa had me at hello ..."
BorisBadnov, 06 Septembre 2023

On Tuesday 5th September 2023 I had the great privilege of speaking with Marissa the Front Desk Supervisor of the Best Western Plus Ocean Side Inn Fort Lauderdale FL. We have not yet stayed at this quaint beach front hotel, but we will be now! I was searching around looking for a two night stay in Fort Lauderdale for November 2023 as my family will be on a Cruise Extravaganza leaving from Port Everglades Cruise Port, just a few minutes away. I always like to call the front desk of Hotels to see if I can book directly with the hotel instead of online and on this day I had success. When I called the front desk Marissa answered and immediately her welcoming and friendly voice had me at hello. Marissa was able to take some time with me to explain the different types of rooms and the amenities that the Best Western has and that was greatly appreciated. Her customer service was A+++ and I look forward to staying at the Best Western Oceanside Inn in November. Thank you Marissa! P.S. You should be promoted to V.P. of Customer Service.

"Best Western experience"
rogue0204, 05 Septembre 2023

At arrival the staf open the parking as it was raining and we didnt even check in i call the reception and the employee open the door as the parking entrance to the hotel only open with the key to the door. She was verry friendly and answer all of our qquestions also have discount on the parking cost that was a plus. The facilities are in ok conditions as the building is old but the rooms were nice and clean some details i the bathroom like the towel hanger been loose the pipe in the washer been broken and put together. The breakfast was good the ladies at the breakfast area were really nice and helpful and the pool was clean. With some remodeling the hotel will exceed all your expectations but the friendly staff make the diference. I will definitly stay again.

"Good for the price"
eduardoc273, 05 Septembre 2023

The location is very good, the breakfast is very reasonable. The only two things I mentioned could be better: strong smell of chlorine in the towels, and they should refill products during breakfast to guarantee availability. Other than that, great stay.

"Near beach, AC not working well"
Robai12, 18 Août 2023

This was my third time staying here but I didn't really enjoy this stay. The A/C unit was leaking and didn't cool well… the maintenance guys don't want to be bothered I felt like.Breakfast is good with many options. $21 a day parking fee…in the summer should give 2 bottles complimentary water bottles coz it's too hot!Don't get room by pool if you want privacy too many stares when you walk out the room

"Great location, hotel needs work but has potential. "
Ronny G, 14 Août 2023

The hotel has potential but it needs alot of work. The structure is deteriorating. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was colder than one would need to be comfortable. The beach is right behind the hotel and this made up for the hotel and is why I gave it 4/5 stars.

"Just average!"
3-Krazy-Kats, 09 Août 2023

Best thing was the breakfast! The refrigerator in the room wasn't working, I called the front desk twice and both times was placed on a lengthy hold. I ended up walking down to the front desk to address the matter. It was then resolved in a timely matter.

"Above and beyond"
shantasticone, 02 Août 2023

We stayed for an international judo tournament, as did many other teams from around the world. The staff outdid themselves handling such a large and varied group for almost a week. Our rooms were what was expected and amenities were just right for this size property. The WiFi was a little sub-par, but with a packed hotel, I can understand. The entrance is a little tricky, watch for cars. Perfect central location to Ft Lauderdale attractions and beaches. Overall, a great and convenient spot to stay for anyone from individuals to international judo teams :)

"Don't arrive later in the night!"
cjread3124, 14 Juillet 2023

Arrived at 1 am. Got to my room and the beds were stripped and blankets and pillows on chairs. One towel in the bathroom. Had to call the front desk and wait for them to send someone up with a new room key. The “upgrade” for the inconvenience was going from a private balcony to a shared balcony where the shades didn't close all the way and I got to wake up to people sitting outside my room so I couldn't even open the shades. I was comped my parking for the inconvenience but no other solutions were offered.

"Wonderful getaway in Ft Lauderdale"
kurtvanhoogstrate, 07 Février 2023

I really enjoyed my stay at BW Oceanside. There is a small walk to the beach that takes a couple minutes, but it is worth it! Loved the Pool and lounge area. We used the bar area and had food there as well. The staff was all very hard working and wanted to do a good job. We'd very much love to come back! The location is always an very cheap Uber ride to hot spots, or you can walk which we did. There was a the "Water Taxi" stop about a 7m walk away which is super cool to do and i highly recommend.

"Great bed, breakfast and balcony"
Rockwall11, 30 Janvier 2023

Good selection of hot and cold items for breakfast, comfortable and clean bed and bath and a balcony with a peekaboo view of the beach was a plus. Parking was convenient and at a reasonable $20. Would definitely recommend.

"Very friendly staff"
Beynah2004, 14 Janvier 2023

We came before the check in time after a early flight and we were greeted by Anna who was very welcoming and showed us hospitality while staying. During our stay C.J. at the front desk was very kind to us and gave us tremendous help when our flight got canceled. We also loved the breakfast and the room was very nice and clean! The beach was very close to the hotel also. We look forward to coming back here in the future and telling our friends and family about this hotel!

"Great stay with very helpful staff."
theresaannfleming, 13 Janvier 2023

This Best Western had very accommodating and helpful staff. They made our stay seamless. The included breakfast was delicious. We needed a taxi in the morning to get to the airport and they called for us. We arrived very early in the morning and they let us store our luggage till our room was ready.

"Great location"
aimmergluck, 08 Janvier 2023

This hotel was perfect! The beach was right around the corner. Nightlife was walking distance. Perfect location for taking the water taxi . We liked the breakfast and the cute lizards at the pool. The rooms were very cute! We had a nice balcony over looking the pool. We would stay here again.

"Great stay"
Getaway421492, 03 Janvier 2023

Really enjoyed this hotel. Has all you need! Food, drinks, pool, fitness room, parking, good location, just steps from the beach! Would stay here again for sure!! Very friendly and helpful staff also!

"Amazing place"
437rinak, 01 Janvier 2023

Excellent location, great and clean place with amazing breakfast and staff is very very nice. Rooms are being serviced every day. Pool area and other areas are clean and smell good. Easy access to the beach.

"Great Buy Great Location"
jenniferdM3785VF, 23 Décembre 2022

This hotel changed our loyalty to Marriott. We enjoyed the breakfast, location and the staff was great! We would definitely come back again! They also have onsite reasonable parking. The amenities were awesome and we were very pleased with our experience!

"Will visit again"
suzibydesign, 22 Décembre 2022

Beautiful location for a quick getaway. Excellent customer service from Robert from the get-go. He made the stress of travel seem like a breeze. My first visit and he gave wonderful recommendations. Cannot wait to come back after the holidays with the girls.

"Good customer service"
Pat T, 21 Décembre 2022

Excellent customer service. Really appreciated CJ at front desk. He was very friendly and accommodating. Love the continental breakfast, which is better than most. and that we can easily walk to beach. The rooms are spacious as well.

"Anna is the BEST"
Mike L, 20 Décembre 2022

Anna at the front desk was amazing and took care of us from the moment we stepped in by heling us store our luggage and being in constant communication with updates on our room. Anna went up and beyond with her hospitality and made us feel like we were staying with close friends.

"Family vacation"
Vanessa S, 18 Décembre 2022

The hotel I didn't like , but the staff are amazing , the breakfast ladies, Ana and CJ from the front desk and Robert the supervisor. For them I give 5 stars . They are so helpful and kind, they did everything for us.

"A ton of fun"
tonydelong54, 13 Décembre 2022

It started with a very kind and understanding staff. We got off our cruise at 9 am arrived at the hotel at 10 am. The staff said please wait till we have a room cleaned for you . And invited us to sit out by the pool. It was less than an hour and we got checked in

"We love it"
Stefanie S, 04 Décembre 2022

Best place, we love it here so much, that we always come back. Staff is amazing, GM is the best. Beach is very close, restaurants and other places in walkimg distance. We come back each year. Thank you and happy holidays

"A happy camper"
Stanton G, 01 Décembre 2022

Overall a great place to stay. Easy access, in a great area, great complimentary breakfast, clean facilities and room, free wifi, free indoor parking. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Apparently my review has to be 200 characters long but I can't think of anything else to say. Maybe I could tell you what color the walls and carpeting are or something like that! Oh, there were some cool pictures on the walls in the 5th floor hallway. There ... hit the 200 character minimum !!

"Everything!!!"
ashiyanelson75, 13 Novembre 2022

Our stay was fantastic. The rooms, amenities, staff… ALL FANTASTIC! Our flight was delayed TWICE, and we had checked out already. The staff(CJ and specifically the young lady with the braces that checked my sister in) went ABOVE and beyond to further accommodate us until it was time for us to go to the airport. EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE!!! The location is approximately 2 minutes walking distance from the beach. Towels are available at the front desk. There's no shuttle but Ubers are easily available and there was plenty to do and eat nearby. A couple of us are vegan and there were awesome restaurants nearby(10 minutes driving/30-40 minutes walking). We know where we're staying when we come back to Fort Lauderdale.

"Run down place, great location"
edpauldds, 12 Novembre 2022

The building is very old, run down, dated, and not kept up well. Lots of rust and peeling paint. Drapes that don't close. Parking garage is quite frightening at night. Great location and great breakfast

"Nice place, good location, great staff!"
Andrew F, 10 Novembre 2022

Nicely updated hotel in a very good location with an even better staff! We just endured multiple delays to our cruise while we waited out hurricane Nicole, and the Oceanside allowed us to extend our stay and even checkout a little late while we waited for our ship to dock. Top notch service (thanks to Anna and Marina!), really good breakfast, and nice warm pool…we will be back!

"Best hotel experience I have ever had."
Flhappy, 07 Novembre 2022

Absolutely fantastic experience at the Oceanside Inn. Every person from the check in agent, bartender, restaurant manager, maids, maintenance people were so friendly and helpful. I have a foot and ankle problem and they provided a wheelchair for me and helped me open doors, always smiling and asking me if I needed anything. This is a small property but it was like a family. They do provide an excellent hot buffet breakfast every morning. Just about anything you can think of to eat is on it. FREE! Rooms have a frig, microwave and coffee maker. I will stay there again and I do recommend this property to everyone.

"Always an amazing experience"
TeamSanti, 16 Octobre 2022

We love staying at this amazing hotel Every time we are in Fort Lauderdale. From the friendly and accommodating staff to the delicious breakfast and close proximity to everything that we love to do in the area we have never had a bad experience at this hotel. I highly recommend giving it a try.

"Our bed broke in the middle of the night"
Veronique B, 03 Octobre 2022

So my boyfriend & I were celebrating our 3 year anniversary. I rented the room as a stay cation since everything else was recently destroyed by hurricane ian. This isn't my first negative experience with this hotel. The first was 2 years ago & the manager was very apologetic so I figured if I gave it enough time things might have been better. Not exactly. So, they let me check in early which I appreciated & offer free late check out, also appreciated. I checked in decorated the hotel room & went to pick up my bf. Came back and we ate and went to lay down. Mind you until this point no one had gotten in the bed. I laid in the middle and felt like the center of the bed was sinking in. I said to my bf, something feels off about the bed. He told me that he would call down stairs and mention it. He spoke to Bernie the frost desk supervisor and he explained that he didn't want us to be blamed which was why we were mentioning it. Bernie said he'd make a note, but there wasn't really any other king suites. Which I had also been told earlier. Anyway around 10:30 we fell asleep. Almost exactly an hour later there was a harsh clunk & then a second clunk as the whole bed collapsed to the ground, hitting my head on the wall. My bf and I were both shocked. I went down and was met by a totally different person who was very sympathetic and switched us to a king suite and told us we wouldn't be charged. I then had to take a maintenance man upstairs to show him what was wrong despite having had photos to show. Then we moved rooms at nearly midnight. At 8 a.m. we were awakened by a cleaning person banging on the door over & over asking us why we were in that room it was supposed to be vacant. We explained and she left saying the front desk didnt communicate anything. But no apology for waking us up.11 a.m. I go to check out. I am talking to a young lady who is in training I tell her we were.to be receiving a refund. She says I'd have to wait on the supervisor. A few minutes later Bernie the same supervisor we reported the broken bed too from last night appears . He tells me that I'll have to wait a few days for someone to.follow up with me regarding a refund. I told him I didn't trust him because there appeared to a lack of communication. After some back & forth I left and called priceline. They called the hotel & were.told they had to wait as well. About 2 hours later Bernie called me and told me that they had approved the refund. It ended okay but 2 strikes, and never again

"Great stay."
yvonne c, 22 Septembre 2022

Nice place, staff are so friendly and helpful. Short walk to the beach. Pool was fun, family of iguanas amused us. Breakfast was fantastic! So much to choose from, and the staff are so friendly (I remember Suzanna, and all the others were nice as well). Beds comfortable, clean rooms, efficient cleaning. Great price for the amenities. Short walkalong the beach to restaurants and shops. We will be back!

"Noisy & Dirty"
L286BZpaulb, 15 Septembre 2022

Booked this hotel months ago to take a relaxing vacation, was never contacted by the hotel or 3rd party booking agent. On arrival at the hotel I was told that there was extensive construction going on and the Sun deck was out of use. This made the pool area dirty and noisy. Although open it was Virtually unusable. Due to the noise we could not use the pool area, the jackhammering and debris and dust made that impossible. This hotel is showing its age, but the staff are friendly and helpful (to a point) the breakfast area is well stocked and has hot fresh food items. But still using plastic knives and forks and cardboard plates. The bar area is minimal but well stocked, the bar man ( Edwin) makes a good cocktail, but come on a $13 drink served in a plastic glass. At least give the guy proper glasses to make proper drinks The location is poor a 15-20 walk to get to other bars and restaurants. Although close to the beach there are better hotels to be found. DO NOT STAY HERE UNTILL YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT THE CONSTRUCTION HAS FINISHED

"Best Value for the Area"
harewego, 07 Septembre 2022

I stayed here with our family hoping for some down time. Overall we had a good experience with the hotel. I know some reviews say the staff was rude. Personally I took it as they were being professional in their job. I had no issues with the staff. The pool area was nicely spread out. Pool. towels were readily available and plenty of seating. Breakfast was good as it always has a variety. Housekeeping was also on point. Needed something, they took care of it. Although many stated the location being ideal, I somewhat question that. In proximity to the beach, you had to walk around the 'B' resort to the public parking area to access the beach, (10 minute walk). There were no amenities for guests at this end of the beach. If you required a restroom or changing facilities, you would have to do it from your hotel. At night I question the 'safety' of the area. It is much darker at this end. There are not many shops as you would expect in this area. The parking lot becomes a 'hang-out' for groups that even I as a New Yorker felt uncomfortable. From a driving prospective, you can easily get to the highway from this location without driving through the many local roads. I was not a fan of the costs for parking ($21+ per night), nor the bar drinks were way over priced, ($15). Yet they strictly enforce not allowing outside food or drink. If you are looking for a base of operations that you would be traveling to and from, this is an ideal location. If you want beach and the amenities or like to walk around at night, I wouldn't recommend it.

"Needs A Deep Cleaning"
hrgr21, 31 Août 2022

At check-in, the front desk staff person was rude and abrupt. However, every front desk staff person I encountered moving forward was delightful and helpful. The room was dirty and needed an intense deep cleaning, especially the bathroom. Im sure staffing is limited, and the cleaning person is overworked, but on cleaning day, she failed to leave wash clothes in our room, a fundamental need to shower. Also, the duvet cover on my bed was filthy; it had dirt marks all over it. Then there was a mix-up with our check-out days, so the cleaning woman opened the door because she thought the room was empty. When I explained that we did not check out, a back and forth ensued, so I told her to contact the front desk and lay back down. About an hour later, she opened the door again, then about thirty minutes later, she knocked to exchange the linens. It wasn't an enjoyable stay between the dirt and the cleaning lady. Also, the parking deck sensor to open the gate does not work. I had a lot of issues with that, along with the elevator. It wasn't me either; I encountered other guests with the same problem.

"Clean, well located"
Robyn S, 03 Août 2022

We requested a room with a view from the balcony. We got it. Just a peep but nice. The hotel is very clean. I had read some negative reviews but couldn't find any. It is a short 2 block walk to the beach and a short walk to the Jungle Queen attraction. We walked there and back and felt very safe. The free breakfast had quite a variety, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, ham, sausage, biscuits and gravy, a yogurt machine, asst muffins, breads and bagels, asst cereal, waffle makers, delicious coffee, asst juices and more. The very clean dining area overlooks the pool.

"Room not as expected; hidden parking fees"
Deb D, 03 Août 2022

Room was small. View was overlooking parking lot, not marina. No hair dryer in room. We were not advised of a $45 parking fee. Had to pay a resort fee of $37 we did not use. We were aware of it, but did not use it. All in all we were very disappointed. The hotel seemed fine, but our room and the hidden costs were disappointing.

"Staff was amazing and catered to our needs"
christinelattenotto, 01 Août 2022

We had a great stay at this hotel, for the price and the convenience of the location to where our Beach National VB was located. It was a great value, and the staff, were amazing. Edwin, our bartender kept us happy and fed - and the front staff always helped us with every need right down to providing umbrellas, sand toys and beach chairs, the cleaning staff were totally on top of everything at all times, the pool was kept up nicely and everyone was great to us there. Would definetly return. having a shared patio with the other rooms in our group was also a plus, with a full balcony and patio doors it was very convenient to go in and out of your room and visit with others in our group on the patio.

"Avoid if you can!!!!!!"
VanyRamz, 28 Juillet 2022

Regret booking here! If you can avoid it save yourself the frustration. The drain in our shower did not work properly. The tub would fill up in about a minute and would take 5 mins just to drain. We booked this hotel for a 4 night stay so my kids can participate in US Open Judo. The refrigerator DID NOT WORK. Called for maintenance and he looked us in the face and said “it's not a refrigerator it's more like a cooler which is baffling since the amenities listed state refrigerator not “cooler” We asked him to swap it out and he brought us another one without even inspecting it first, when he brought it inside and we opened the door it smelled of rotten fish. They can't rate this a 3 star hotel it should say 2 star at best. Will never book again.

"Best Western Oceanside Ft. Lauderdale Beach"
moffnwoff, 09 Juillet 2022

Beds very hard. Had backache after two nights. TV selection very poor. No stations that carry the Rays or Marlins baseball games. Keys to rooms and parking garage did not work smoothly. No view of ocean or intercoastal from room or balcony.

"Ñice older hotel near the Beach"
Terrence C, 29 Juin 2022

This is an older hotel that could use a few updates. It has clean rooms , a very friendly staff , and an excellent location. Less than a 3 minute walk from the beach. They serve a continental breakfast and have a bar/grill. The food is pretty good.

"Nice Hotel and Friendly Staff"
mwcorg2343, 07 Juin 2022

The Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is a very nice hotel. The public spaces and my room were clean and looked new and fresh. The staff were very friendly. Parking is easily accessible under the hotel and it is within walking distance to most of the activities you might want to do in Ft. Lauderdale. The Pool is nice and the view from the room, while you cannot actually see the beach, is also all very nice. My room looked over the pool. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to experience Ft. Lauderdale for a vacation. The price and very close proximity to the beach makes this a great value.

"Definitely a YES!!"
cag174, 25 Mai 2022

We would definitely stay at this hotel again! It offers hot breakfast with lots of variety, daily housekeeping, great location in proximity to the beach, restaurants and shops (we walked everywhere), and a nice pool area! The value is great, IMO. You get more here for less money than neighboring hotels. Rooms are nice and beds are comfortable. We really enjoyed staying here!!

"The best"
anthonyrL1012EM, 18 Mai 2022

We been staying here for our 8th year in a roll the staff and the hotel manager carolina are like an extended family thats why we stay there we just love staying there the location of the hotel next to the beach and especially the breakfast

"Great home base close to the beach"
Z2902DQjiml, 08 Mai 2022

Comfortable accommodations steps from the beach at a reasonable price. Hotel has a 'family' vibe and we had a sundeck room which allowed us to extend the room and have drinks/snacks outside and access to loungers overlooking the pool. Room was comfortable; not fancy, but modern enough and sufficient space for four travelers with luggage. Breakfast was great, with lots of selection and friendly and helpful attendants who kept things clean and re-stocked. Front desk staff were also helpful and lots of parking available on two levels. Many good restaurant choices within 15 min walking distance and lots more within a short drive. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Fort Lauderdale.

"Pleasant stay"
Roxybee66, 01 Mai 2022

Had a great time. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was tasty and different everyday. I loved the pool wish it was open later. The female bartender is a boss at what shes does, the food from the bar was great but it closes to early. Marisa, Regina and the other young lady doing my check out excellent! Most of the front desk staff was friendly. Will definitely stay again

"Average experience"
521wiscovacay, 21 Avril 2022

Room was dirty in general and bathroom sink and tub had problems draining. Furniture was sticky. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Nice pool area, could use new umbrellas as most had holes. Pool deck was also dirty.

"Incredibly rude maid staff"
megreilly25, 19 Avril 2022

I have stayed with best Western a few times and never had a bad experience but this past experience was terrible. I reveled with my boyfriend, my family and my friends due to us having a wedding in fort laurderdale easter weekend. The maid services were extremely rude. I did not get a maid to service my room for 3 out of the 4 days we stayed. Keep in mind I paid a lot of money this past weekend due to it being A holiday weekend and considering I had a suite for the weekend!! The maids did not come for 3 days during my stay…we had wet towels piled up, trash piled up and we had to use the pool towels so we could take a shower. After complaining to the front desk they said they would send a maid immediately and no one came until about 430/5 o'clock. At this time it was too late and we had to get ready due to us having a wedding this weekend and dinner reservations on Easter. They then sent what I presume to be a manager to our room. She was extremely rude and was not helpful at all. Instead of offering any assistance or even apologizing for the inconvenience she then made a smart remark and walked away. I've never had this problem at the best Western before. They did not offer any accommodations for their mess up but instead ignored the problem till the duration of my stay was over. By the end of my stay our room smelled like wet tails and garbage and garbage so bad that we had to make a pile outside of the hotel room because we could not stand it in the room anymore. I also talked to a few rooms that weekend Who were also having problems with the maid services not coming to their rooms and how rude they were when they saw them. I am extremely disappointed in the best Western Oceanside for this terrible experience and for not even an apology.

"1 night stay"
Jpearcestl, 18 Avril 2022

Chose this hotel based on other reviews and glad I did. Great location, short walk to the beach. Breakfast was really good, waffles eggs sausage and cold items as well. The hotel was exactly as described and a great deal compared to other hotels in the area.

"Family vacation"
tellygomez, 16 Avril 2022

Best Western is a good hotel to stay at Fort Lauderdale if you're looking for a place close to the beach and restaurant/bar. Budget friendly, serves free delicious breakfast. Staffs are courteous and approachable.

"Pre-cruise stay"
ab003422, 16 Avril 2022

Stayed for 2 nights prior to cruising. Hotel was very clean and staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Everything highly exceeded our expectations. Food was great and there were many choices. Highly recommend !

"Perfect"
elizabethas2janovska, 06 Avril 2022

Great location, great area, literally on the beach, perfect swiming pool the kids enjoyed staying atvthe pool after a day at the beach. Lovely breakfast, the fruit eas fresh and diferent every day, bagles, hard boiled eggs, fresh tomato slices, wafles. The hotel was clean, and had polite staff. Everything was great. Highly recomended.

"Fort Lauderdale"
janthorkelson, 01 Avril 2022

Came to stay for a wedding at the neighboring Marriott. Chose this site for a cheaper stay. Not located on the ocean. Pricey for location and amenities. Free breakfast was included and a good selling point.

"location great but rooms need to be updated"
D B, 01 Avril 2022

the location right near the beach was great, it would be nicer if we could access it from our hotel and not have to walk as far. the staff at breakfast were really really nice . the rooms needs alot of updating , and they need to make sure they clean the sheets and not just make the bed . bathrooms are super small . could be a great hotel if attended to

"Family Trip Gone Wrong"
cmkm2022, 31 Mars 2022

Upon arrival to this hotel, we were told there was no parking. I had to send my kids upstairs while I drove to find parking. Upon entering the eighth floor there is a distinct unbearable smell of urine. I thought ugh oh my!!! Once entering my room my son who is asthmatic was coughing up a lung. I went to open the window and it was screwed shut. I called down to front desk for assistance to have a room change in order for my son to breathe effectively. They put me on hold and eventually hung up on me. I called back and there was no answer. I walked down to the front desk to be greeted by a very rude customer service lady who told me two supervisors said I was in the room for over 40 minutes and therefore there is nothing they could do. Well I explained I was out looking for parking. I asked to have a room with a window that I could open at least for the night as it was about 7pm and was rudely told I could leave the hotel and be only charged one of the three nights I had paid for!!!!! This is how they treated my son!!!!!! They did not care about his health. I had to drive my son 45 minutes away to stay with a family member at another hotel. Our vacation was RUINED!!! This hotel is terrible at customer service.

"Pleasant stay"
travelfar2022, 25 Mars 2022

We had a great trip; in town for a wedding. The location was great; super close to the beach. Quiet room and a lovely little breakfast each day. Pool was nice too! Warm water but perfect for those New Englanders running away from the cold.

"Easy going for our spring break"
angerdes173, 19 Mars 2022

Went for spring break- usually hotels are awful & helicopter young adults/ college students (I get it) but we all had fun and felt the hotel was perfect. Rooftop deck above pool was awesome. Room was clean, got to check in early, great location to strip / bars

"Avoid, there are much better options!"
ramonbeaulieu, 08 Mars 2022

I stayed here one month ago and the desk staff that checked me in, provided free parking. I was impressed and came back. The next experience was terrible. Lashanda was working but not at the front desk. After a few minutes she wandered back. She told me there was a charge for parking and I told her that I called Priceline to check about parking and in addition, the last time I stayed it was complementary. She told me that would never happen and there is no free parking in Fort Lauderdale. I stay in Fort Lauderdale about 30 nights per year in hotels and only about half have parking fees. I don't mind parking fees in nice hotels or where there is valet parking, but the Best Western is kind of a dump and I only stayed here because it was cheap, as I arrived late and had to leave early in the morning. Lashanda was rude and condescending. Employees can make or break an experience. I will never stay here again. There are many better options for the same or slightly more money.

"Ok Stay"
bryontemail8, 07 Mars 2022

Hotel was clean but you could tell it was an older hotel. Rooms were small and bathrooms needed caulking around the edges. There was a musty smell in the hallways. They kept the A/C on blast to mask the smell. Overall the $300+ cost for the room was way over the value received.

"Pre-Cruise Hotel"
Fantasmaniac, 05 Mars 2022

We stay here before cruising out of Port Everglades, every time. We like how close it is to Las Olas beach, love the food in the lounge and enjoy breakfast. You can rent bicycles and take a ride down Sunset. It's a lovely, safe area and we will be back again.

"Best Western Fort Lauderdale"
Summerjls, 28 Février 2022

We had a lovely stay and we loved the layout which was easy for my mom and daughter to navigate. We loved the breakfast buffet and we walked to dinner at Bo Beach and the Salty Siren. We also took the bikes out. The beach was a little bit of a walk for my mom.

"Great Hotel"
ctz482019, 27 Février 2022

The hotel was very nice. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Friendly staff. Nice outdoor pool and sun deck. Continental breakfast was included and similar to other hotels and the food was very good. Hotel had a bar/ grill and the food and service was very good. Friendly and professional staff. This will be my go to hotel whenever I am in the Fort Lauderdale area. Walking distance to the beach. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Nice location!"
christinafink3g, 24 Février 2022

Great location. Reasonable price in comparison to neighboring hotels. Parking seems expensive at $21 a day. When my daughter went down to ask for toilet paper the clerk said” ,We will let housekeeping know.” My daughter let her know that we really needed it now, the clerk said, “ I'll let housekeeping know” There was no line of people so this was really poor customer service. We had asked for shampoo the previous evening and that gentleman was kind enough to give us some. I had to track down someone in housekeeping to get the toilet paper. That was ridiculous. Overall a nice trip except for the few glitches.

"Flexibility"
craigzvonar, 20 Février 2022

Reservation was for my wife prior to her flight being cancelled due to snow in Chicago. The hotel refused to cancel the res because it was within 72 hours of her stay. No flexibility for an act nature.

"Nice place for a weekend getaway."
Marie G, 18 Février 2022

The hotel is about 10 miles from the airport $27 cab ride. Room was clean, pool was small, but clean and warm. No need for a car, everything very walk-able. Front desk person was very direct (not very personable). A suggestion would be a vending machine or access to water/soft drinks in the lobby area.

"Just don't!"
elboy0712, 12 Février 2022

We spend a lot of time in hotels and I cannot recommend this one. Dated, feels dirty, and the staff are pretty awful. The two exceptions are the front desk and the fact that they have an EV charger. These are the only two positives I can report.

"Walking distance to Beaches"
WENDY F, 06 Février 2022

Great location and staff. Friendly accommodating. Was here on a family get away. Pool very clean. Room was clean. Had patio room. Josie at the lounge was great. Relaxing atmosphere. Close to restaurants. Close to airport if your using beach and local restaurants you really don't need a car

"Nice place to stay and enjoy vacation"
DDeanGM, 04 Février 2022

With only a few hiccups that really weren't big enough to deter anyone stay, we had a really nice visit! I would choose this property again if I were to go back to ftLauderdale. Best Western is always my first choice!

"Smelly Cat"
Seaside149627, 02 Février 2022

The hotel is dated and in need of an upgrade. It shows it's age on the inside. We had to use the parking lot elevator as the front one was out of order. The biggest concern was the cleanliness of the room as it certainly didn't smell fresh. Not sure if there had been smokers in the room or if the carpet needed cleaning. But the smell certainly made you suspect the cleanliness. .

"Great hotel, very close to beach for a great price"
Jennifer V, 01 Février 2022

Our family of 4 chose this hotel due to the proximity to the beach & the free breakfast. I have 2 growing teenage boys that eat a lot at breakfast and this was one of the best we have ever had. Each day there was a variety of options. Always waffles and eggs and then meats, cereals, fruit ect.. The hotel is not on the beach but behind a hotel on the beach. We found you can walk right to the beach from the hotel or you can drive down a block and park at the public beach. The bigger hotels have areas that are for their guests only and they have chairs for their guests. We found we were able to pay the guys some cash & got 2 chairs and an umbrella. My kids enjoyed the pool daily. It was never packed, maybe 12 people in there at the most. More than that & it would feel very full. There were alway fresh towels being put out. You can walk less than a mile down the road and you'll find restaurants, bars and ice cream shops. It is a dark walk at night and a lot of people are out, I would not be comfortable if I had been walking alone at night. Our two queen room was on the small side with very little storage. Bathroom is also very small and no storage. This could be an issue for people who spend a lot of time in their room or are traveling with a lot of luggage. We only had 1 suitcase and 4 backpacks and we still had to be strategic on where we put stuff so we could move around. We had one of the rooms with a balcony. Again, very small balcony but 2 of us would squeeze out there and enjoy the sun and fresh air. I am a super sensitive sleeper and I did not hear anyone, ever, while I was sleeping! Elevators always worked and room was clean. Overall very happy with our stay, if the room was a little bigger to fit our family it would have been perfect!

"Best deal close to the beach. Awesome breakfast."
Mom4Vacation, 21 Janvier 2022

Escaped the cold in NY for a quick weekend trip and chose BW b/c it was the most affordable place with decent reviews close to the beach. Yes, there was a pot smell in the halls on the first day; yes the elevator was broken, but the room was clean and spacious, the breakfast was the best free breakfast I've ever had (and meals are pricey in Ft. Lauderdale), the pool was nice and warm, and the staff was really nice. Food and drinks at the bar were pricey and most of the machines in the gym didn't work but all in all it was a major bargain and I would 100% stay there again.

"Will be returning!"
NellieGreen123, 08 Janvier 2022

I booked a last minute trip to Ft Lauderdale to escape the cold at home. The Best Western was perfect, it had everything I needed for my warm get away. It was located on the beautiful beach, and was a few minutes walk on the main strip to all the fun beach bars and restaurants. I will be returning, soon!!

"Great hotel"
ggiron1960, 04 Janvier 2022

Very close to beach, lots to do within walking distance Very clean rooms, lobby and pool area. Breakfast was well maintained and with holiday crowd never ran low on anything Can rent bikes from hotel We will stay here again

"Hidden Gem in Ft. Lauderdale!"
Odyssey63198581189, 20 Décembre 2021

Perfect location on the beach and close to Las Olas and the main A1A strip, the BW Plus Oceanside is definitely a hidden gem. Fast, friendly service, accommodating staff, amazing breakfast (included!), beautiful pool and upper sundeck, and clean rooms that are serviced daily. Also, the best pillows of any hotel! Will definitely be returning here very soon!

"Overall Average"
ralverde, 17 Décembre 2021

First, I would stay here again, so all the negative I'm going to list wasn't that bad. But, it was far from ideal. We had such a bad experience on the first night of our trip (the only other hotel we stayed at, which was also a Best Western), that it was nice to have someone so friendly at the front desk when I checked in. She was friendly, and seemed to care, which was rare. Anyway, the hotel is older, but fine, and the room was okay. Things unraveled from there. As seems to be pretty common now, there was a smoke detector in the hall that needed a new battery. It shows how little they care about maintenance to not take care of such a simple thing. Then, at check-out, the complete opposite of the person that checked us in was there. Just rude, and couldn't have cared less. Again, the place is fine, but if you're paying much for it, maybe look elsewhere. Typical details: Comparison to others in chain: Average Internet: 30/12, Breakfast: Yes, but didn't have it Room: Average, needing maintenance Cleanliness: Basic cleaning was decent good, a bit rough around the edges (light switch, bathroom door were gross) Bed: Below-average, springs poking up Bedding: Average Shower: Average Hard water: No HVAC: Short cycling, but worked Location: End of the road, a little cheaper, but a bit far from things Noise: A little loud Staff: Great, then not Cost/value: Fairly reasonable Would stay again: Yes

"Great Value & Excellent Service"
Kathleen R, 08 Décembre 2021

This hotel was in the perfect location for a music festival we attended on the beach. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast was fantastic. The bar in the lobby is also a nice added bonus. Would definitely recommend and stay there again!

"Very nice stay"
Anciennelorette069, 03 Décembre 2021

What I liked the most was the pool. The water is nice and warm. They added palm trees and other greenery which gives it a good ambiance. The hotel staff was very nice and efficient. The air-conditioning in the room was a little loud. I ended up with a room which connects which I hate because of the noise issue. Thankfully our neighbors were quiet after 10pm. Close to the beach but unfortunately an event was coming up and part of the beach was closed off. The area for breakfast is nice.

"Our Best Western Stay"
Maps241398, 30 Novembre 2021

We have stayed at this hotel several times before this stay. Just wish it had a restaurant where you could get 3 meals if so wanted. We ordered and had food delivered because we did not rent a car and Sun pass busses don't seem to be running any longer. Room was clean and never had to ask for extra towels. We will stay at this Best Western again.

"Tired and dirty"
g0rdtam, 30 Novembre 2021

This spot is excellent in location if you're getting on or off a cruise ship. The pool and outside area is nice. The breakfast is good. The hotel decor is very tired (unmaintained) and the repair and maintenance was lacking. There are two elevators on location. The back elevator was never working when we stayed. I don't think it is ever used. That means all of the service staff have to use the front elevator (off of the lobby) to take carts of laundry etc. We had to wait in line to get the elevator when we checked in, behind the maintenance man and his tool cart (which took up his own elevator) so we had to wait for a very slow (and old) elevator to get to our room. Later that afternoon the elevator was signed that it was not in service. We were on the fifth floor, so we had to use the stairs every time we went out. When we asked at the desk if they were doing anything for the guests that were unconvinced, the answer was NO. So, for 12 hours, there were NO ELEVATORS to service the 6 story hotel.

"Okay price for being close to beach"
Traveler46811655007, 25 Novembre 2021

Cannot see the ocean from the hotel but it's a very short walk and for the price it was okay. There were a few issues with my stay and the water is a brown/yellow in the room and at breakfast which is concerning. Staff was mostly very friendly but didn't address any issues we had

"Horrible experience"
Eve S, 23 Novembre 2021

When we get into our first room, there was a glass covering to the light fixture on the wall that was missing and they had to move us for electrical problems. Then we get into our new room unpack and the bathroom sink plug was not even attached to anything and u couldn't open it to drain the sink with out putting something underneath it to keep it open and drain. Then to top it off, the night before check out the elevator in the parking lot broke down so only one operating one in the building on opposite end of our room, this would have been fine but then we woke up for checking out and walked to other end of the hotel to get elevator and the buttons weren't working and the light said G but no signs anywhere letting you know it was broken and when I get downstairs to tell them it's broken they simply look up and tell me “we know we called it in.” No response was given so I took my load to the car went back upstairs to bring my family down and there was still no sign to communicate anything. My husband uses a cane and could barely make it down the stairs but we had to be on our way. This hotel is called “Plus” but I have no idea what the plus is for in this location except being conveniently next to the beach.

"Would stay again"
tayhoffa14, 12 Octobre 2021

After a horrible experience at a hotel down the road we gave best western a call, they were able to get us two rooms ready in minutes! Clean rooms, amazing breakfast selection (even with covid protocols), just a quick walk from the beach!

"Terrible"
Jennifer D, 27 Septembre 2021

When we first arrived we were given a room that was supposed to be for non smokers but the room smelled like weed. There was hair in the sink, toilet, and bathtub like it hadn't been cleaned. The drain was clogged up as well. Later that night we got another room and that room did not smell like weed but there was still hair everywhere and the drain in this room was even worse. While bathing, I had to turn off the water in between washing so that the bathtub wouldn't keep filling up. The people at the front desk were very helpful and nice, location was good, walking distance to the beach, and breakfast was delicious but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone and I will not be staying here again.

"It's ok, nothing over the top"
jonathanrwhitfield85, 12 Septembre 2021

This hotel is ok, nothing over the top though. No beach view at all even though it says it has it. The one room that has it is a small glimpse of the ocean. The room was nice and clean, I had a walk in shower which was nice, the internet was fast a free. It's a cool spot if you just trying to stay somewhere quick cheap and close to the beach but don't expect a five star hotel because it is not that. The elevators are slow and janky, I was afraid everytime. They nickle & dime you for everything so bring your own supplies. They did let me check-in about an hour early so that was great. They put a $250 deposit hold on my account but did not tell me that this was going to happen prior to my arrival AND it takes five business days to go back into your account. I hate this the most, its like a hidden fee. Like I said, its a cool spot if you trying to beach in and out and somewhat close to the beach.

"Poor Hospitality Response / Great location"
H2314ELbrianm, 10 Septembre 2021

Upon checking in on Sept the 2nd we attended our room on the 5th floor. We were tired from our flight and turned back the bed sheets to have a nap. The bed sheet looked like a dog had slept on it. Ground in dirt stains and human hair. We called down to the front desk for cleaning services however, they were gone for the day but the gentlemen brought up fresh clean sheets at which time we made our own bed. Upon entering the washroom we immediately noticed ants inside the toilet everywhere. Also ants coming out of the tiled floor baseboards (I have video). So we again called down and a gentlemen came up and sprayed for the insects. We explained all this to the management at the desk who did apologize and explained he'd pass it on to his manager. We received a credit of $78 CAD on our credit card. We further reviewed this with the management at the from desk upon check out who only could say "Sorry". We liked the location, room (minus the cleanliness) and staff. We feel that $78 CAD credit on a $2000 CAD invoice is insulative. Ask yourself if you'd be happy under these circumstances? We understand things aren't perfect all the time but be reasonable on trying to recover some business.

"Very Disappointed"
cwmanup2004, 29 Août 2021

Very disappointed with this hotel's cleanliness and service. The front desk associate Marsa was rude both times I approached the desk. I gave her the benefit of the doubt the first time, but when I approached the second time and she was just as ugly as the first, I knew it needed to be reported. The linen on the bed had dried up blood on it, bathroom walls were filthy, and underneath the beds were not clean. I am very disappointed.

"Best Western is a Plus"
ellagreen378, 16 Août 2021

Everything was amazing!! And those beds are soooo comfy!! We always stay at Best Western in Hallandale Beach, but this one is amazing!! Right on the strip!! Will definitely be booking again!! Amazing amazing amazing!

"Great Experience!"
Ally M, 04 Août 2021

Overall we had a great time here! Pros: The staff was extremely friendly. The continental breakfast was delicious. The rooms were clean. Walk in shower was HUGE. Staff was continuously cleaning and sanitizing community areas. Seeing iguanas was exciting. Cons: The bar is closed Monday, Tuesday and maybe Wednesday. Our AC wasnt working as well as we would like but it was still doable. When they say partial ocean view, it's extremely partial because there is a hotel in-between BW and the beach so it's a few minute walk to the beach. There is a $20 a night parking fee we didn't know about it which caught be off guard especially because I booked straight from BW but it was worth it knowing our car was locked in a parking garage that used a key card to get in and out of . Overall we extremely satisfied will definitely come back.

"Beware of pot smokers"
BeachVballMom, 01 Août 2021

During my stay, guests were constantly smoking pot on their balconies. This wafted into the room through the ac/heating wallunit. The hotel is well situated, and the staff is fantastic. But it is in dire need of a complete renovation.

"Great service"
540trippb, 31 Juillet 2021

Maressa phillips took good care of us. Definitely recommend this place to anyone. They will take care of you! Very professional and will do anything for you! Great food good pool and very close to the beach!

"Do not recommend"
travelthings2214, 23 Juillet 2021

To start off we originally wanted 2 rooms and we were given one and they wouldn't give us the room we originally wanted and tried to charge us $500 extra dollars just for one night. Also, we came into the room and the bathroom was atrocious.. hair was on the floor, toilet, sink, and the shower. First thing we saw was the bathroom so who even knows what the beds look like and how well they cleaned it. When i went downstairs to go speak to the employees about the situation, she had an attitude with us. I do not recommend coming here at all. Employees are rude and it's not clean annnnnd they add extra charges out of nowhere for no reason.

"Amazing staff"
ginnavigiano, 05 Juillet 2021

The front desk staff and kitchen attendants were all fantastic! The beach was a 5 minute walk and the area was very nice with many food options and stores for shopping. I would definitely be coming back!

"Good stay"
Relucu, 26 Juin 2021

I stayed in room with to queen bed with pool view. Room was clean .Very closed to the beach , just a few minutes walk , very nice beach , good breakfast, quite location ,and a good value for what you payed .

"Not very clean but good if you are on a budget"
804bridgetk, 17 Juin 2021

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in June 2021 for 4 nights. We are both only 18 years old so there are limited hotels that allow 18 year old's to check in (most hotels in this area require you to be 21). We stayed in room 100 and we weren't impressed. We were on ground level right by the pool and it was a very small room, there were windows but if we had the curtains open, people could walk past our room and they could see right in so we had to keep them closed the entire time. We had a big king bed but only 4 small pillows, we were fighting over pillows every night lol. The bed itself was comfortable but it just didnt feel clean. I am a little OCD I like things clean and I just didnt feel that in the room we stayed in was clean. It felt like sand was all over the floor and in the bed even before we went to the beach, EW! The bathroom was TINY!!! My boyfriend is six feet tall and the sink countertop was very low. The bathroom was so small you could go to the bathroom and brush your teeth at the same time. The water had a yellow tint to it. I would yell at my boyfriend because he didn't flush the toilet, but it was just the yellow water in it!! There was also yellowish water in the shower too. Like I said, it just didn't feel clean. There is a pool, it is a little small but still very nice. There are pool towels but the front desk doesn't give them to you, you have to ask for them and we had to use one towel per person the entire stay. it is a very short walk to the beach. I recommend bring a beach towel from home or else you will need to bring your pool towel and it will get all sandy. There are no beach chairs FYI. Now some good things about this hotel. There is a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker in the room along with a large TV. There is also a very small gym on the second floor. There is one treadmill, row machine and a couple other things. There are a couple sets of dumbbells. It not a lot but it is something. There was free breakfast when we stayed here. My boyfriend and I just ate waffles every morning they were great!! There were many restaurants and little shops within a mile or so of this hotel so we walked to most places and took an uber to some. Overall, this was an average hotel. It is very dated and old. It was in our budget and we enjoyed our time here. If you have the money I suggest you splurge for the more luxury hotel tho!

"Hotel seems old but we love the location"
F C, 11 Juin 2021

This hotel by all means is not a five star hotel - It's obviously not a new hotel and some furniture and decors are torn/worn out. However we love the location - it's walking distance to the beach. Also, bus #40 is right by the hotel - you can take it to other beaches and also to connect to bus #11 to Las Olas Blvd. Breakfast was served speedily and considering COVID, it had good varieties of food. This is the more affordable hotel that's oceanfront and we really enjoyed it.

"Good value and location"
694jamij, 18 Mai 2021

I was able to book the hotel for a great $$$ through Priceline. The hotel itself was sufficient for our stay. Pool area is on the smaller side, but nice. There is a second floor patio are for extra seating. You are just a block from the ocean and a 15 minute walk to many restaurants.

"Close to the beach"
Laceyisthatbaby, 11 Mai 2021

The property was clean and very close to the beach. Very close to the restaurants and bars within walking distance. The pool close at 8pm. The breakfast was great and the service. I was thanked for being an elite member with a gift. Overall great experience, but the room could use some updating.

"Retro Feel"
lisasavannah5, 11 Mai 2021

Good breakfast and maid service. Excellent. A bit dated in some areas. Elevator exit carpet needs replaced, it was stained bad on second floor. Toilets slow to flush. I liked the folks I met while there.

"vacation"
timandbarbfox, 05 Mai 2021

Great location at a fair price. Able to walk everywhere. Would of been nice to have a shuttle to and from the airport, but other than that, great staff and very clean. A short walk around the corner and yo are on the beach. We like the beach area their. Not as busy. would definitely stay again

"Great rooms, free breakfast"
65Lynne4, 01 Mai 2021

Helpful and cheerful staff, clean & great smelling rooms w balconies, pool w plentiful towels & lots of space for tanning, business center, awesome beds and showers. Free breakfast. Bar with great options! Close to the beach and other fun spots, water taxi.

"Perfect for families!"
Pinkbootsinparis, 27 Avril 2021

Wonderful! Staff is friendly, helpful and always available. Perfect location, bikes to rent and free breakfast is a no-brainer when traveling with kids. Hotel was spotless and safe. So close to beach- plenty to do or you can just relax by the pool. Kids loved it (little ones and teens). The staff definitely made the experience an A-plus. We will definitely stay there again.

"Terrible"
Meander183327, 26 Avril 2021

Poorly maintained. Well below our expectations. Would not visit again.advertising was misleading. They did repeatedly state their cleanliness pledge but I don't remember ever seeing anyone wiping down anything. The rooms were musty and had an odor of mold.Finally moved to another room ,only to find men's underwear on the floor in clear view in our newly cleaned room .The view from our balcony in our second room overlooked the pool decks that were dirty and the umbrellas were torn, I never saw anyone from the facility tend to the pool area at all. The staff overall were pleasant. The owners of this hotel need to be present and see the property for what it is.

"By the Beach"
marmar055, 21 Avril 2021

Stayed 4 nights with family in adjoining rooms. Pros: big breakfast included, nice comfy beds, clean, nice pool, balcony, easy checkin and out. Beach was right behind hotel. Very convenient for walking. Water taxi in walking distance and restaurants/bars. Cons: Small bathroom. Very mini bottles of shampoo, lotion. No housekeeping. Had to take from carts or call desk for towels. Threw dirty towels outside room door. All in all under $200 a night is great considering the overpriced hotels on beach.

"Awful"
wpeers2017, 21 Avril 2021

This is so overpriced.the staff are rude and unhelpful unless you speak Spanish.there is no restaurant it's microwaved food.no menu or prices.property is run down.needs a good overhaul.bar is not open everyday.breakfast is about the only good thing going for it.go somewhere else.

"Reservations"
Smithchief, 20 Avril 2021

I had the pleasure of dealing with Denise when I called for reservations. She was very polite and patient with me as I had 2 reservations to make. Thank you Denise. It was a real pleasure. Looking forward to meeting you in person.

"fun"
cindygail11, 14 Avril 2021

Great place for a few nights. Room was comfortable, location was great, close bit not right on busy strip. We were there during spring break and the noise was not too intolerable. Staff was friendly, hotel was clean, breakfast was nice.

"Affordable Beach Hotel with Great Food"
ctiedje, 07 Avril 2021

We live in Fort Lauderdale and stayed in this hotel for a few days while we waiting for COVID test results. We loved the fact that there was easy beach access. The location is far enough down the beach to be away from the chaos, but still close enough that you can reach the action with a short walk. They also provide free bikes to use if you want to explore further. They normally have a full bar and restaurant, but were only limited to room service while we were there. Food was great and reasonably priced for a beach hotel. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting the area.

"Great stay "
alcalbe, 04 Avril 2021

We stayed for a week. Great location and fair price. The hotel met our expectations and in some ways exceeded them. What you see is what you get, we were not expecting a restaurant or a fancy bar, so we were ok with what the hotel offered, the beach is 3 minutes walking distance and there are many restaurants 5-10 min walking distance. The pool is not big but it was not crowded. Room was cozy and comfortable, and the breakfast was very good despite of the COVID restrictions. The staff at front desk and at breakfast were very friendly and helpful at all times, they go the extra mile to give the guests a great service. Room for improvement in gym (update/maintenance) and in common areas cleaning.

"Great stay"
tb0d3, 29 Mars 2021

This hotel was a gem. Very nice, clean, next to the beach, excellent staff. The value was great considering the close distance to the ocean. Included a good breakfast, pool if you wanted, free internet and a small fitness area.

"Perfect Staff"
b0ndjamie, 21 Mars 2021

My sister and I traveled with our 8 children and the staff helped us cater to all our children's needs without any complaints or discomfort. Breakfast was perfect! Our favorite was waffle and French toast. Pool side was amazing

"A Gem!"
kyrasacheti, 17 Mars 2021

Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn has so much to offer. its full of adventure on every turn and dive! The hosts are supper friendly and welcoming. The place was safe, clean and well maintained too. The food wad a cherry on the top.

"Most unfriendly staff I've ever encountered!!!!!!!"
marilynbF504GE, 14 Mars 2021

First of all. Watch the prices. They add on for everything. This place was NOT as the pictures show. There is NO restaurant on the property. If you are going to have a car for 1 day, but your stay is 4 day, you have to pay $ 20 a day to park for 4 DAYS!! The people at the desk were the rudest I've ever dealt with. I have been to many many different hotels. When you walk in-there's the small area to check in-there is a small area straight ahead they serve breakfast. If you go a little to the right there is the pool. Thats it. You have to go out the front door to get to the beach. ONE exit. I did NOT get a receipt yet!! NEVER would I stay here again!!!

"Great Place to Stay"
jpwadv, 05 Mars 2021

We recently stayed here and had a great time. The entire staff was friendly and helpful! This hotel was very clean and was a perfect location for the beach! It also had a great breakfast that we enjoyed eating outside even though they had plenty of room inside as well. We were just around the corner from the beach and a short walk to all the bars and restaurants we wanted. We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here with their wonderful staff.

"Not impressed"
272kalid, 26 Février 2021

Breakfast wasn't great, items were running out by 8:20 and started at 8. Marijuana smell surrounded the building 12 hours a day...pool closed at 6pm...it's Florida! We wanted to swim when we got back from exploring and we asked the front desk and was quickly told no and called maintenance on the walkie talkie to watch the pool and kick others out...the rooms were “remodeled”(just added a 30th layer of paint to things) and our power kicked off. The restaurant and bar were closed due to covid and no notice was given about that before traveling, when asked about it, they said they didn't draw enough business in and couldn't keep it open, never mind the guests staying on the property, several people were ordering delivery/DoorDash for food, I can't imagine you couldn't have stuff open on shortened hours...the music was terrible by the pool, constant playing of 50's/60's music...for this being on the beach and around spring break time, this hotel was a DUD!

"Smelled like weed & needs to be cleaner"
LucyV9139, 19 Février 2021

The floor we stayed on smelled strongly of weed most of our 5 night stay, and you could also smell it in our bathroom. When I complained to the front desk they said there is nothing they can do about it. When I asked if it was a non-smoking hotel, they said yes. Another couple nearby said the floor their room was on also smelled strongly of weed. Additionally, this hotel could be a lot cleaner. The baseboards and doors really need a good scrubbing and the details have not been attended to in a very long time. The bottom of the bathtub is stained as well. The mattress could have used replacing, and my back wasn't too happy. The only plus would be the proximity to the beach, and this is why we didn't leave. Definitely will NOT stay here again.

"Older property but good value on the beach"
borcila2021, 15 Février 2021

While the hotel itself is a little bit dated on the outside, the location by the beach is fantastic. The king size room we had was a bit small and so was the bathroom. The staff was accommodating for a couple of the things that we asked for and the price through priceline was great!

"Best hotel by Fort Lauderdale Beach Park"
justin_hamilton77, 14 Février 2021

I was in Fort Lauderdale briefly for a night and chose this hotel. Walking to the beach was convenient from the hotel and spent some time at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. The front desk were very friendly. I was recognized and thanked as a Diamond Select member along with my welcome gift. Room was nice and clean. The breakfast was great even though it was at a reduced service. The pool deck was nice to hangout in the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel. I definitely will come back to stay here if I happen to come in this area again.

"Great stay by the beach"
Rachel M, 10 Février 2021

For the location and price, you can't beat this value. We were steps from the beach and within walking distance (10 mins) from tons of restaurants. The pool was nice and our room was on the 2nd level balcony, which was awesome. We got to lay out right outside of our room and it wasn't ever busy. Had an issue with the TV freezing and within 10 mins someone came to fix it. We were really impressed.

"Great location and very easy, secured, covered parking."
Kenneth333, 10 Février 2021

We have stayed at this resort before and absolutely loved the location and the price compared to other nearby "beach front" hotels. The check-in staff was wonderful and the room was adequate. Though the breakfast attendant wasn't the friendliest, the weekend hot breakfast was amazing! One thing we never took advantage of until this trip was the parking garage. In the past we have never had a car when staying here, as we were leaving on cruises. This time we had a rental car. So, we paid the $10 upcharge for parking and could not believe the ease of going from the lower level parking garage to our second floor room. We could park a short distance from the elevator that took us right to our floor, just feet from our room. We would most definitely stay here again, especially if we needed parking.

"Great value for a great experience"
xyzweig, 29 Janvier 2021

Price was great for the service. Nice rooms and good breakfast provided. Everything was clean. Lady at the front desk was amazing and helpful in addition to the other staff we encountered. Communal areas were well kept and spotless as well as sanitized.

"Great Value Hotel"
meganwebb7054, 03 Janvier 2021

Over all it was a nice hotel at a great value. We wanted to stay close to the water but it wasn't in the center of the mid strip. You can't see the water from any room, but we did have a nice balcony with two queen beds. Our room was very updated and clean. A few things needed alittle more attention to cleaning but over all very satisfied. You must call the front desk to get your room cleaned everyday which we weren't a fan of because if we forgot to call one day we didn't have any clean towels. We had to call the front desk a few times and the lady that answered seemed like we were bothering her. The internet needs updated it was extremely slow. The beds were very comfortable and there are plenty of pillows. Breakfast was served everyday with a line that accommodated very well to COVID rules. Lastly, the pool area was filled with kids and there was never any sun in the pool area which is disappointing. We were able to find two chairs late in the afternoon.

"thanks"
josepR9897LM, 16 Novembre 2020

We went on a long drive and had to rest midway so we decided to check into Best Western Oceanside Inn. This hotel did not disappoint. We came there to sleep and we had a good night's sleep! Their beds and pillows are comfortable, everything's clean and their bathrooms have eco-friendly dispensers. We were very satisfied with our stay there.

"bad expirience"
becaal2172, 10 Novembre 2020

need to train better your staff to be more polite with customers, especially your night shift manager and the cleaning guy. people on vacation need to feel free to stay out at anytime with out been arrased from the hotel staff. no matter what time it was they where arrasing us at all time by non senses rules.

"Moldy hotel rooms"
dianaosman2002, 09 Novembre 2020

The room we were assigned had an AC unit that was leaking water. This left the carpet wet and moldy. The entire room had a mold smell. When discussing the issue with the front office staff, they refused to address the issue of the mold, odor, or broken equipment. I'm not satisfied with my stay at this hotel and I will not return to this hotel.

"Rude clerk 0 room service"
luisaP6525UK, 03 Août 2020

I got here 3 days ago, 0 room service called the front desk for toilet paper the lady very rude said to come to the front desk to get it with an attitude on Monday night shift 0 hospitality 0 customer service

"Boy Scout hotel in Fort Lauderdale before Sea Base"
Baf1795, 30 Juin 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

"not the best but they took us last minute so that was good"
Veroniquebenhayoun, 31 Mai 2020

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.

"LocalGetaway"
coffeecreole, 06 Mai 2020

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.

"Perfect location and great pool"
Cheryl S, 31 Mars 2020

It's one of the best reasonably rated hotels in Ft. Lauderdale in a great location near restaurants and the water taxi. Hotel staff are great and very helpful. This was our 2nd time to stay and we will stay again.

"Very quiet and safe location- lovely staff and hotel"
Ellie T, 30 Mars 2020

Nice location near the beach, although a little far to walk from restaurants etc. The pool area is lovely and very calm. The breakfast is good and the staff here are very helpful. The rooms are clean and overall we had a very enjoyable stay. I would recommend this hotel.

"Good located hotel"
JAScholten, 28 Mars 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.

"Spring break fun"
Katie M, 26 Mars 2020

Amazing. Love the location the clean rooms but most importantly the staff. They rock. The bartenders and severs the front desk. They are so amazing. Shout out to Rose!!! She's the best. Get the fish tacos. They a huge and super fresh.

"Fantastic!"
teresagray13, 18 Mars 2020

Everyone was so friendly & you get so much value for your money based on the location, the breakfast, the cleanliness, & the friendly staff! The rooms were decorated so cute and all the staff were very helpful with suggestions on where to go & what to do!

"Great location near airport"
tracyd2257, 14 Mars 2020

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, 13 Mars 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.

"Stayed One Night"
Smithchief, 08 Mars 2020

Excellent Service from Front Desk Staff Maressa and Aliyah. Room had a King Bed as requested and was just off Poolside. Ate in the restaurant and everything was very good. Location was great with access to the Trolley right outside the hotel. We will certainly be back.

"Great location for beach!"
Shallie B, 07 Mars 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.

"Consistent good quality and service"
AaronZ67, 05 Mars 2020

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.

"Such a nice hotel. Great location, can catch trolley right outside. Breakfast was great!"
shericsr, 05 Mars 2020

Management is superb! Bartender was amazing! He didn't have to come out to the pool to wait on us, but he did. He didn't have to clean up after us, but he did. Snack food at the bar was great, too. Clean, friendly place.

"Best small hotel on the beach."
P6504DPpauld, 29 Février 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.

"Good stay, great breakfast, coffee and location!"
MikeandJoyand, 29 Février 2020

My husband and I stayed one night and we really liked the location. It was very close to the boardwalk and the beach and took a nice morning walk after we had a delicious breakfast and coffee. For the price it was the best stay we had while in Florida!

"Disappointing hotel but helpful staff and good breakfast"
Calabaykid, 29 Février 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

"Great location"
relaxedinedmonton, 28 Février 2020

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, 28 Février 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, 28 Février 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"
N982HIwendyc, 27 Février 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, 23 Février 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!

"All good - 1 block from the beach - beautiful beach"
garysecor, 20 Février 2020

nice place to stay close to beach - older building but refurbished nicely - staff and facilities are great - pool just for relaxing - several levels of sunning and relaxing outside - nice small workout facility - overall good value

"What a stay...."
Skidmarx69, 19 Février 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.

"Great find!"
lovetootrvl, 19 Février 2020

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!

"Fun in the sun"
923robertc, 19 Février 2020

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.

"Love this place"
dnash2atcogecoca, 18 Février 2020

We were in Room 502 with a view of Seabreeze Blvd. The staff is excellent. We hadn't been there in a few years and Rose and Leila remembered us. Very clean there and close to the beach and restaurants. Going back here again next February.

"1 night pre cruise stay"
GaudiLM, 12 Février 2020

Stayed for 1 night pre cruise. Well located, 1 min walk to beach, not far from airport or port everglades. Comfortable bed, clean room. Breakfast with lots of choices included. They organized shuttles to port in the morning, easy booking, about same price as a taxi.

"Great place for a cruise stop over"
claytonm972, 11 Février 2020

Clean, efficient and close to the cruise terminal and airport. Pool is ok, nice little bar. Staff was accommodating. Arrangement of transportation was seamless. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was good. Walking distance to a few things.

"Great Spot to Spend A Night Before Or After A Cruise"
canadianABfan, 11 Février 2020

Great place to spend a night or longer before or after a cruise. The staff was A1 particularly Front Desk Manager, Marisa. We were given a pool patio room with our own direct access to the patio and pool. The morning breakfast buffet was first rate with a selection of 3 types of egg and even fresh sliced tomatoes. We would go back.

"Wedding Party"

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.

"Enjoyed having a full restaurant on site with a bar"
staminTx, 06 Février 2020

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.

"Restful"
mmcf1994, 04 Février 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"
Mick D, 04 Février 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"
lauracampbell2020, 03 Février 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!

"Great staff handy location"
fox_and_spouse, 03 Février 2020

Recent renovations make this hotel clean and bright. Staff is very helpful and now they have restaurant service which is good since there are not may restaurants in walking distance. Prices have increased since the renovations and are getting a bit high.

"Close to ocean"
lovesfoodandtravel1, 30 Janvier 2020

Friendly staff, clean hotel, good included breakfast (which was different every day, which we appreciated). A very short walk to the beach and to restaurants. Small parking deck if you have a large van.

"Close to the Beach and Restaurants"
Lloyd D, 30 Janvier 2020

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.

"Perfect stay for beach visit"
INYDtravel, 30 Janvier 2020

Convenient location for beach, convention center, cruise, and airport access. Amenities at hotel included food and bar. Bar had casual bar-type food offerings. After walking area looking for light food options, ended up back at hotel and very pleased with food and bar. Room clean, functional, and comfortable.

"Good choice but whoa! FL is very expensive"
cantravnut, 28 Janvier 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).

"Best Western Fort Lauderdale"
Patti S, 28 Janvier 2020

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.

"Pre cruise stay"
billg296, 17 Janvier 2020

Outstanding stay. We really appreciated Aaliyah at the front desk taking such great care of us. We had flown overnight, and our day in Ft. Lauderdale was fantastic and so special with activities thanks to this nice lady. Room was very nice and very Florida motif.

"Great property and great value"
erinnball, 15 Janvier 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.

"Had a good stay"
800reeyas, 14 Janvier 2020

We had a pleasant stay. Close to the beaches and easy access to market. We could walk to the market in the evening. Will recommend for families as well. Breakfast was good and we had to pay for parking but it was still reasonable.

"Precruise visit "
nancydI9911VD, 12 Janvier 2020

Friendly staff, accommodating! Nicely decorated room. Fabulous location walk to the beach with shops and restaurants. Easy access to cruise port and airport. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Fort Lauderdale.

"Fantastic Stay"
413kathleenb, 12 Janvier 2020

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!!

"Great family hotel"
daveamidon, 09 Janvier 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.

"Great place to quick stop"
MarcoVCosta, 09 Janvier 2020

We only stayed for one night and it was a great and peaceful stay. Breakfast included in agreement to Best Western standards. i will return in january for a longer stay. I recommend. Clean ad safe place.

"Better than the Costa cruise staff! "
heavenlyescape, 08 Janvier 2020

Clean, quiet, and the most friendly staff around. The service and breakfast were better than that on our Costa cruise! They stored our luggage for 2 days for no fee. The pool is warm, and clean. The beach is a very close walking distance.

"New Adventures"
friedeggsandham, 08 Janvier 2020

Beautiful beach, wonderful sunrise and great protien breakfast. Just what was needed. The morning breeze from the balcony with a warm cup of coffee while others got ready, was breathtaking and relaxing. Add to that, the amazing sunrise and white sand beach, taking a brisk walk, touching toes in the warm Atlantic. What a present.

"Good place to stop."
JohnPBuckley, 06 Janvier 2020

We had a sizeable comfortable room. Excellent staff. Complimentary breakfast and access to shuttle bus for cruise terminal. (Payable) Good value compared with many local hotels. No time for the heated swimming pool. The hotel is probably dated but it is good nonetheless.

"Well..."
peder711, 03 Janvier 2020

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.

"Very nice hotel at the beach"
donkaiseros, 02 Janvier 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.

"Entrance is difficult"
HeidiandCarl, 31 Décembre 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.

"Happy"
Sheila H, 31 Décembre 2019

The staff was very nice, the room was clean and comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was a local stay-cation for me as I live in Ft. Lauderdale. I would definitely recommend this location. It is very close to local attractions, the airport and cruise port.

"A good place to stay in Ft. Lauderdale"
GrandmaDi, 30 Décembre 2019

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.

"Close to Beach, Cruise Ship Terminal and Short Walk to Downtown Restaurant/Bar Areea"
ClaireWithLove, 24 Décembre 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.

"Excellent Stay"
WY82633, 23 Décembre 2019

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.

"Great little hotel by the beach"
laujust2017, 23 Décembre 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

"FLL on the beach"
petermurrayd, 22 Décembre 2019

A good hotel at a reasonable price almost on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. Easy access to the Water Taxi service and a short walk to the beach (5 minutes) and many restaurants and lounges. Nice pool and good internet with an in hotel bar and restaurant including an "included" excellent breakfast.

"Great location"
stolt143, 18 Décembre 2019

Great location, within walking distance of the beach. The lobby is updated, nice & bright inside. The breakfast had a good amount of variety! The rooms were nothing special but updated which was nice. Easy check in and check out!

"My layover from the cruise port.."
chem12, 17 Décembre 2019

I arrived with my daughter in tow on a Sunday at around 8:30am. Check in isn't until 4pm technically. So anyways, I checked in early. I was told that a room isn't ready. 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.

"Pre cruise"
DougW378, 17 Décembre 2019

This fits a very well priced hotel with decent rooms, and a good bed. The bonus was this had the best breakfast I've ever seen at a budget hotel. Waffles cereal, fruit, with lots and lots of choices. It was kept very well-stocked. The staff was super!

"Good location and great breakfast"
suzannaPortland, 16 Décembre 2019

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.

"My go to place to stay in Ft Lauderdale"
Diane W, 13 Décembre 2019

I have stayed at this hotel every time I've come to the area for approximately 6 years. The rooms are clean, patio rooms available as well as partial ocean views. 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.

"Location, location, location"
Traveler816463, 11 Décembre 2019

Very nice room with a very comfortable bed. Clean!!! Short walk to Ft. Lauderdale Beach- great for a walk and watching the sun rise and set. Great overnight stay before heading out on a cruise the next day. Close to the port. Nice breakfast buffet with a lot of variety.

"Great hotel"

"Great stay before cruise"
A4719XYlisaa, 08 Décembre 2019

Had a great stay. Staff was really friendly. Breakfast staff were especially friendly and kept all the food options full. Breakfast had every option imaginable. Great breakfast room overlooking pool. Rooms have obviously been redone with very nice colors and modern feel. Had a great sleep without hearing any noise around the hotel despite it seeming really busy.

"Pre cruise hotel was wonderful"
Windy9, 01 Décembre 2019

My wife and I booked here for three days prior to our cruise. Although we have been to Fort Lauderdale many times this was our first visit to this hotel. 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.

"Great Hotel"
Mare90, 30 Novembre 2019

Very nice hotel The breakfast included a nice variety of items. The beach is within walking distance.. Located on the Sunshine trolley route. Close to the cruise port. The staff was helpful and friendly.

"Local stay"
amgoudreault, 29 Novembre 2019

Poor customer service from front desk staff in regards to reservation For adjoining rooms. I was never advised of lack of adjoining rooms until check in. I had asked 5 months. One week and day before and was told would be available. At check in I was told “ we did not guarantee that”. No one every mentioned lack of adjoining until check in. The attitude of the staff was there are other hotels

"Oceanside"
Robin M, 28 Novembre 2019

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.

"Great value and good location right by the beach!"
elnbryant, 27 Novembre 2019

We stayed one night precruise. This is a dated, older hotel, but has been taken care of and rooms were comfortable and clean. 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!

"Good value"
Cruising-along, 27 Novembre 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.

"Nice beach side hotel"
Andrea D, 25 Novembre 2019

Room was renovated, not well, (chipped paint, older fixtures, moldings etc) but it's updated and clean. Beds were very comfortable. Room did not get cleaned one of the days we were there, but other than that, I would stay again.

"Precruise stay"
Y4034EEkarenf, 21 Novembre 2019

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!!!!

"Just a one nighter"
David F, 18 Novembre 2019

Staff was very friendly and informative. Room was clean and there was elevator access. Breakfast was buffet style but lots to choose from. Within walking distance to the beach. We booked this room for one night for a cruise and It ended up being a great location. Just 10 minutes to the harbor.

"Clean. Family friendly. Helpful staff."
Vacation715127, 12 Novembre 2019

We arrived to the hotel several hours earlier than expected. They stored our luggage for us until our room was ready and allowed us to take some towels to the beach nearby! Our room was ready and allowed us to check in much earlier than anticipated. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and the location was perfect. Many restaurants and the beach within walking distance!

"exceptionally clean."
Dawn D, 12 Novembre 2019

our room was pool view and exceptionally clean. Staff was friendly assisted us throughout our stay. Very short walk to beach. No service on beach so you must bring your own chairs and acessories. Food menu was reasonabiliy priced. Breakfast buffet was limited but of good quality.

"Hotel looks way nicer in pictures"
JoyRadigan, 10 Novembre 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.

"great experience"
Wesler L, 08 Novembre 2019

The amazing experience starts with great front desk ready to make your stay a remarquable journey. They ask for anything that you may need to provide the appropriate support. Rooms are cozy and very clean. Several choices for breakfast.

"Getting ready to cruise"
katiegump, 08 Novembre 2019

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. Many shopping and dining opportunities were within walking distance. The hotel was clean, with plenty of lobby space. Complimentary breakfast was also very good. 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.

"Close to the beach"
BackPacker801590, 05 Novembre 2019

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.

"An 11 night stay in a very friendly helpful hotel"
AlexandraKent_UK, 05 Novembre 2019

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.

"Poor"
pmandjm, 31 Octobre 2019

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.

"Recent stay at Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn"
Ruth R, 28 Octobre 2019

We arrived late in the evening and had just enough time to eat a bite in the hotel restaurant before it closed for the evening. Room was nice but when it said balcony I was expected a view of something other than the back of the building next door.

"Best value for the money"
Danicolie, 26 Octobre 2019

We stayed 1 night before a cruise. It's very close to port, right on the beach, has an awesome free breakfast buffet. It has a bar with bar food. It's also very close to a water taxi stop. Our favorite place to stay in FLL.

"Fabulous find"
Shari D, 25 Octobre 2019

Hotel is located close to the beach. Easy walk to activities and restaurants. Buffet breakfast was phenomenal. Had excellent choices each morning. Staff at the front desk were very friendly, especially Maressa. She was super friendly and helpful.

"Awesome vacation"
newshari07, 24 Octobre 2019

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..

"Good for a couple of nights"
gail_hible, 24 Octobre 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.

"Excellent Place to stay"
rubenfP3588WZ, 23 Octobre 2019

We stayed with my wife and her sister for 4 nights and we found the hotel very confortable and friendly. I especially want to highlight the cordiality and good treatment of Maira Miranda, the supervisor of the front desk, who always attended our requests and gave us valuable instructions to make our stay more pleasant.

"Great Place to stay In Fort Lauderdale."
Malaki N, 20 Octobre 2019

If you Love staying close to airport and walk from your Hotel room to the open ocean and enjoy walking on warm salt water and clean sands, you got the place. The rooms are clean, The staff are wonderful, they have excellent food, from breakfast and regular meals at the bar / restaurant. the prices are reasonable. Air conditions are cooling to the lowest temperature you prefer. The hotel is close to freeways and air port and harbor. Close to shopping area and boat launch.

Place was extremely clean and accommodations were excellent. Breakfast was full buffet served hot and kept extremely clean and constantly refilled. Staff was there to help and accommodate you. 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. The Boatyard was excellent Happy Hour with great ambiance. Would highly recommend staying at the BW.

"Great Stay"
Glllltbow, 17 Octobre 2019

Amazing Best western property! Marissa and Aliyah are the best. Helped me have a comfortable stay. The property is right next to the beach and a walk away from multiple food options. Definitely try the seafood at Coconuts. Aliyah & Marissa suggested it & it was great.

"Nothing Special"
RuthF1665, 16 Octobre 2019

We had not visited the area and was disappointed the hotel was not within walking distance of food or entertainment.We are older and found the walk taxing. The front staff were wonderful and helpful with directions and calling for taxis.

"Good place to stay short term"
Catherine H, 16 Octobre 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, 14 Octobre 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, 10 Octobre 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.

"Very good situation, outstanding reception"
Excursion817477, 09 Octobre 2019

The most helpful front desk supervisor: Maira Miranda! Thank you! Rooms are very large and clean. Well situated, near to the beach, nice restaurants in the area also in the hotel. The pool it's nice and relax area.

"Great Staff"
cameronc602, 09 Octobre 2019

Stayed here with a friend for a short vacation. Hotel is right next to the beach which is great. The staff was all so nice and very helpful. Breakfast was very good. Definitely a hotel that is worth the price.

"Short Getaway."
smondal2019, 08 Octobre 2019

Great hotel in a great location. You're practically on the beach and great restaurants and attractions like the Jungle Queen are walking distance. In general there's not a lot of street lighting at night, but the area is still relatively safe for you to walk around.

"Disappointed "
louisefos1, 05 Octobre 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.

"Hotel after Allure of Seas / Royal Caribbean"
i3jammin, 01 Octobre 2019

Great hotel - smelled very clean and looked very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Great breakfast - lots of variety; everything was delicious. Close to cruise ports and restaurants. Cost was significantly lower than most hotels in same area.

"Fall Break Quickie"
Jamie J, 01 Octobre 2019

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.

"Girls Trip!!"
Ceverman78, 29 Septembre 2019

Booked at the last minute and it was definitely a good decision. Everybody was friendly and the breakfast was AMAZING!!The lady that worked at the bar and was over breakfast was sooo nice and very helpful. I really enjoyed talking with her. Next time we are in Fort Lauderdale we will definitely be staying here again!!

"Overall"
Jsaturates, 29 Septembre 2019

The hotel was in a great location nearby shopping malls and restaurants and attractions available. The ocean beach front was beautiful and the location around on hotel premises was very clean and enjoyable .

we just arrived at the hotel and the recepcionist was very kind and helpfull, her name was maira miranda and she satisfied all our needs. i steongly recomend this hotel if you come to fort lauderdale.

"can`t highlight one item, overall it was great as always"
OliCool13, 26 Septembre 2019

we spend part of our vacation in this Best Western for years, always a nice experience. Enjoyed the good service in general but especially from Gloria, Aliyah and Leila. Already sure we will spend a few days there next year as well.

"Exactly what I needed"
Y4940TDjerryc, 26 Septembre 2019

I was going to a conference in the area. The conference hotel was, frankly, way overpriced. You folks were nearby and were much less expensive so I thought I'd give you a shot. I'm very glad I did, . The hotel was clean,comfortable, had very reasonable rates with friendly, efficient and helpful staff, AND you had breakfast! Yuu met all my needs nicely.

"Great hotel"
mselina21, 26 Septembre 2019

Great hotel , to stay at its , a walking distance from the beach . The customer service was excellent . And the breakfast was awesome . I will come back to this hotel whenever I be in Fort Lauderdale Florida.

"Amazing Place"
Jolyane L, 25 Septembre 2019

Great place, clean, beautiful amenities and the lady at the front desk, I believe her name was Nola was incredible. She turned water into wine. Definitely recommend especially since it is so near the beach!

"Another great stay"
Kim T, 22 Septembre 2019

We stayed here a year ago and loved it so we came back this year. We were not disappointed! The place is beautifully kept, close to the beach, easy access to everything and the staff is just wonderful! Aliyah Gordon was our check in agent and she did everything to make our stay pleasant. All of the staff was so helpful and friendly. I'm definitely going back!

"better places to stay in the area"
patriciadZ7688KI, 20 Septembre 2019

Dated rooms, overpriced, good breakfast, parking charges $20/day (which they describe as nominal) and not private for guests only. Laundry in the garage. Hotel is not near any restaurants at all, nice little pool area but pool looked dirty so did not use. easy check out.

"Best trip ever"
347knpizza, 20 Septembre 2019

We arrived at Hotel checked and and vent down for drinks din't get to use pool it looked good in evening and morning came back to hotel from dinner sleep like baby next morning we dint had to run for breakfast as it was open late and we enjoyed hot breakfast with fress coffee loved the Bacon and Eggs. walk to beach and enjoyed left little late what a place to relex

"Excellent Experience"
VBALLSK, 19 Septembre 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, 17 Septembre 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.

"Good but not good enough..."
guinevere792019, 16 Septembre 2019

The hotel is not well marked from the street. Front desk did not inform us on how to park without being asked. No instructions on room location, how to use out door elevator, or get back to the lobby.

"Nice Hotel"
Betsaroo, 13 Septembre 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.

"The right option for Fort Lauderdale"
Deneys, 10 Septembre 2019

The hotel is a very good option for a Fort Lauderdale stay. I was in town for sales calls and the hotel is very well located on the beachfront near the running routes, beaches and restaurants. The breakfast is simple but yet good and the hotels front desk staff are great. Parking is easy and the rooms and wifi are good. I stayed in a pool side room which was great for easy pool access.

"Great Stay Before and After Cruise"

This hotel has a great location with the beach so close , The best value & quality on the beach. Even though there was a hurricane predicted to hit the beach here , the management & staff kept me up to date on the situation. I can not say enough good things regarding the entire staff here. I would like send a big Thank you to every employee here for making me feel safe & welcome during my stay . A very special thanks to Ms T . & Maira the front desk supervisor. I will definitely stay here on all my trips to Fort Lauderdale.

Thank you, thank you, thank you ! We had such a great stay. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Gloria, Marissa, Ms. T, Raymond, Nico at the bar and some others but I forgot the names. Thank you so much for having kept our luggages. Our kids had so much fun in the pool while we were enjoying ourselves under the umbrellas eating some nice tacos. Rooms were very comfortable and having a washer at disposition made it very convenient. The hotel is located very close to the beach. (few minutes by foot) Thank you for providing towels. We look forward coming back to Fort Lauderdale and will surely come back to your hotel. Thanks again for such a good stay.

"Just one night But great"
Carine M, 26 Août 2019

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!

"A mini getaway"

"Perfect for what we needed"
Cinlynn63, 21 Août 2019

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!

"Vacation"
mzclark45, 19 Août 2019

All was good Lashanda was very great and informative at check in. Suzette in the breakfast area was awesome and accommodating. The only complaint would be the air conditioner in room 523 did not really get cold enough.

"Poor customer service"
Andrea S, 18 Août 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.

"Girls' family trip!"
CharlieMom0858, 17 Août 2019

Steps from the beach! Central to the water taxi and many restaurants and shops. Pool was nice. Breakfast was amazing, great selection of fresh food and a pretty dining area. The gym was small, but clean and enough quality equipment for my workout. Rosie and Nico at the bar were excellent with recommendations and helpful and super nice. Very enjoyable experience.

"Business/Personal"
crmandi2019, 15 Août 2019

It is very easy to find. You are walking distance to the beach. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean but the bathrooms could use a little more space to put your stuff by the sink. The breakfast is always hot and delicious!!

"Great location!"
Casey S, 13 Août 2019

Excellent location, great beach access within steps of the hotel. Not a bad view on either side of hotel. Good breakfast. Rooms are on the smaller side but no one goes to Florida to sit in the room! Have stayed here several times!

"Don't Stay at this hotel"
Norman W, 11 Août 2019

This hotel should not be apart of Best Western. You could see the lumps in the bed, the room was very rundown, the toilet flushed on its own and the rooms are very small. We were nerves about sleeping in this room.

"Horrible Service"
ricoistrosie0121, 08 Août 2019

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.

"Good value"
403alexanderw, 08 Août 2019

If you are nice to employees, they are nice to you. Close enough to beach to make it a reasonable choice. Good breakfast and use washable silver ware, plates and cups. Would stay again. Pool is good. Rooms are good with balcony. Cooling unit has to run all the time.

"Close to the beach"
travelwstyle1, 08 Août 2019

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.

"5th Visit to this hotel"
Poodle90, 04 Août 2019

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.

"Good choice just not a good time to visit ft Lauderdale I guess"
johncH7051PW, 03 Août 2019

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. No fault of the hotel but the beach which was around 200 yards from hotel was absolutely covered in seaweed which was a disappointment not the hotels fault at all but something I wish I knew .

"Friendly Staff"
Pamela S, 29 Juillet 2019

The room was nice for the price and the staff was friendly. The hotel had water system problems so they offered us bottle water to wash our face and brush our teeth. However, the staff was very polite.

"I'll definitely return"
funnychap24, 29 Juillet 2019

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!

"Wonderful Stay"
Chisholm26, 22 Juillet 2019

I loved the stay here very relaxing, good price, good food and drinks and the lady who checked us in Maressa was excellent and Rose made us great drinks at the bar with all our accommodations I would definitely recommend staying here

"Great pre-cruise stay"
T C, 19 Juillet 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.

"Great stay"
Taylor4040, 18 Juillet 2019

this was a great location to stay there are a few downfalls for this location not close to any of the restaurants you will have to walk to them on dark nights. There is no ATM in this location have to go next door no beach access 2 minute walk breakfast as great bar is also great staff are really helpful also

"Beyond my expectations"
Sherpa06764536431, 17 Juillet 2019

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. Lots of choices & good stuff too. 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.

"Very good value"
DenverTravelers33388, 14 Juillet 2019

Very pleasant stay. Great beach, airport, and cruise port access. Very friendly staff and wonderful buffet breakfast. They accommodated a gluten free member of our family very well. I understand July may be their off season, but all at a reasonable price.

"Power failure"
rxfords, 14 Juillet 2019

This hotel lost power for over 12 hours. We were finally told we'd have to vacate the premises, and it was our responsibility to find new accommodation s and a means of getting there, all at our own expense.

"Pre cruise visit"
I4946KJkareng, 12 Juillet 2019

Monickaykay, 12 Juillet 2019

My family had a great stay. Staff member Aliyah was a great help, courteous, smiling, knowledgeable and gave us ideas on how to plan our day. Also Maressa at the front was prompt with servicing our needs. Cynthia made friends with my 2 year old son and his eyes widen every morning we saw her. I highly recommend this place.

"Great stay"

Service was great. Room was clean. Breakfast buffet has healthy choices. Will definitely use this hotel on next visit. Felt safe walking back after dark from dinner cruise. Beach is a very short walk.

"Impressed!"
Kyle K, 08 Juillet 2019

It was a great stay, the staff was incredibly friendly. We lost power in the middle of the night, they handled it like pros. They had flashlights and even went out to Dunkin donuts for coffee and donuts along with their normal got breakfast. My hat is off to them for all of their hard work and going the extra mile for their guests, it was a great start to our vacation!

"Great place"
valentemarcelo, 05 Juillet 2019

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.. )

"Great customer service"
Faith V, 04 Juillet 2019

Check in, restaurant, housekeeping staff were all very pleasant. Rose at the restaurant is exceptional. Breakfast crew specifically the black girl was real nice to everyone. She was always making sure the food area was clean, helped guests with issues. Super close to the beach so that's a bonus. The room is comfy and clean.

"Great Hotel with great service!"
KarinB3096, 02 Juillet 2019

Today we arrived at our favorite Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. We love the location of BW that is only a few footsteps from the beach. The Hotel also has a great breakfast and beautiful updated rooms. We couldn't ask for a better stay. I would also like to send a special thank you to Ms. T for all the help with our check in and for the nice room we got! We will most definitely return again!

"Great hotel!"
SHERRYW7777, 02 Juillet 2019

The staff was cheerful and helpful! The hotel was so clean and everything looked new. The breakfast was much better than most hotels. The beach was just a few steps away and the water taxi is also close by. I definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again in the future.

"Very good for a short stay"
Jorge S, 02 Juillet 2019

Excellent location. Very good staff. Clean room and surroundings. Adequate room space. Friendly bar. Enjoyed breakfasts. This hotels covers all the basic needs. Pool and surroundings clean and inviting. No extreme luxury but very well kept. Stayed for a business trip.

"Great location! Friendly staff! Everything you need at a great price."
ShippinuptoBoston, 26 Juin 2019

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! :-)

"Good stay "
C R, 26 Juin 2019

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.

"The hidden Gem in Fort Lauderdale!"
Kazmilk, 18 Juin 2019

This is my go to stay when working in this area. A great location and a clean new updated property, this hotel can't be beat. From your check in the front desk staff is great. T the GM and her front desk staff Nola and Maria are friendly and efficient. The pool area is great then a drink and a bite to eat. Rose runs a fantastic kitchen and bar. Nico and Channel keep the adult beverages rolling with a cheerful smile. This is a secure property thanks to Micheal and his team. A great place for families as well. How can you not like this place !!!!!

I've stayed at many BW hotels and find they are adequate for my needs. Clean, many convenient, locations,accommodating staff. good breakfast and courteous staff. Comfortable beds. 24/7 coffee is great.

"Holiday "
Carol T, 15 Juin 2019

The hotel is well situated and clean and tidy.we only stayed one night on our road trip. staff pleasant but need to concentrate on the customer they are dealing with not other people's conversations..

"Vacation"
Gina M, 10 Juin 2019

Nice friendly staff. Basil, from the maintenance department, even fixed our luggage for us. Easy walk to the beach. Pool with bar and menu very good. Walk or ride to other restaurants and shops along Fort Lauderdale beach. Close to Airport and Cruise ship ports,

"Great place to stay"
John T, 10 Juin 2019

Used for pre cruise stay. Great check in and check out, room was clean and spacious. Pool was good size and clean with sunny and shady spots. Free hot breakfast was great with a good variety of food available. Restaurant and bar were good. Location was close to airport and cruise port. Steps from the beach without having to cross busy streets, and within walking distance of many restaurants.

"Holiday"
clarejill, 09 Juin 2019

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.

"Perfect spot and excellent service!"
Jen J, 06 Juin 2019

The hotel in located across the bridge next to the Broward Convention Center and a steps from the beach in a really safe abd nice area. They offer breakfast with a considerable plenty variety of food and everything is very clean. The rooms are really nice, beds comfy and I recommend the room with valcony to the pool. They have internet included, a bar restaurant in the lobby and a safe parking in the premises with in/out privileges for $15 per day. Is a small hotel but a great value. I would definitely stay again.

"The Beach is Right There!"
Renee55SD, 05 Juin 2019

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"
Roving64521577708, 03 Juin 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, 28 Mai 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.

"Prom weekend"
janethI2856MK, 26 Mai 2019

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.

"Family trip"
Jenn S, 20 Mai 2019

The hotel and staff were great. The view was beautiful. I love how close we were to everything and that the free trolley stopped right out front of the hotel. The pool was nice. I was disappointed with the beach, the pool chairs cost and there was too much seaweed.

"Daughter's graduation"
Boopy39, 18 Mai 2019

We had a great time at the hotel. It was really nice and we were there for our daughter's graduation. The rooms were put together really nicely. And the breakfast bar was really nice as well. Thank you.

"We loved Nico our bartender!"
dkelleher678, 18 Mai 2019

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!

"Mother's Day Ting Pon de Beach"
Devon R, 14 Mai 2019

It was nice to return for our annual event. Staff was courteous as usual. The facility has been upgraded over the years especially with security in mind. Special thanks to Ms T and Miss Carolina. Looking forward to seeing you next year.

"Good location in Ft Lauderdale"
Diane W, 13 Mai 2019

Returning to this hotel again when in Ft Lauderdale. Wonderful breakfast choices. Hot food as well as other items. Nice rooms, good location with short walk to the beach and A1A route on the beach. Bar and restaurant inside. Pool and secure parking.

"Great location"
Tracy S, 11 Mai 2019

Travelling On holiday with family (14 and 15 kids) Great location, rooms are spacious and breakfast facility is an added bonus. Will definitely use this location again in the future. Easy access to the beach.

"Great stay"
Christine B, 11 Mai 2019

Great hotel, the location was brilliant. Access close to beach. breakfast was really good. Rooms very clean. Staff where lovely. Always had a smile on there faces. Really enjoyed our stay!!! Definitely recommend.

"Hands down the best place"
anthonyrL1012EM, 10 Mai 2019

Just the best place around my wife and i been vacationing here for 6 years now and already booked for next year for 2 wks and we are very excited about staying longer and enjoying the awesome customer service

"Florida Roadtrip"
svenbozic, 09 Mai 2019

Poor breakfast, some fruits were served later in the morning although breakfast buffet was open from 7:00 in the morning. Parking garage available on site, nice beach 2 minutes walk from the hotel, beach towels available ag the front desk.

"Hidden gem"
JHDawg, 08 Mai 2019

Wonderful little Beach boutique Hotel. The staff is exceptionally friendly and very professional, the rooms are beautiful ,nice pool area and close to shopping and very good restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel.

"Beach in walking distance"
msnina2011, 08 Mai 2019

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.

"Great one night stay"
Matthew L, 08 Mai 2019

Stayed here for a one night stop before we left on a cruise. Unfortunately it was raining so we couldn't take advantage of the pool or beach. But, the hotel was very nice and clean. Bed and room were comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with several options. Overall, it was a great stay

"Decent "
MarkF935, 02 Mai 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, 28 Avril 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?

"Decent stay near the beach"
hlouie, 28 Avril 2019

Room was clean. Breakfast was very good. Kids loved the cinnamon buns. Staff was friendly. 1-2 blocks walking to the beach. Balcony faced the highway and parking lot, don't waste your money. They charge $15/night for parking. It was a little confusing getting to the garage.

"Still best place to be"
Stefanie S, 26 Avril 2019

BWOSI is still the best place to be for us. Coming here since many years, we can relax very good. Staff and management very friendly und helpful. Short distance to beach and to places to eat. We are looking forward to be back soon.

"Good Stay During Tortuga Music Festival"
Lisa H, 24 Avril 2019

The check-in was a slow process even though I did the online check-in. Also, we have a truck and it was a very tight fit in the parking garage. Other than that, our stay was very good. Rooms are nice and the breakfast was really good!

"Not Great - Dirty and Shabby"
OneLMicheleM, 17 Avril 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.

"Cruise Before & After"
doskcs, 16 Avril 2019

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

"Enjoyed our stay - even if it was only 1 night"
jenLeCreate, 09 Avril 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.

"5+++stars"
FellowTraveler52142, 09 Avril 2019

Very pleased with our stay pre and post cruise. This hotel is a hidden gem and met all of our needs. Staff very professional, helpful, courteous and friendly. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. The bar/restaurant has a tasty menu, something for everyone and very welcoming after a day on the beach which is a short 3 minute walk away. Water taxi stop and many shops and other attractions within walking distance. Thank you and we will be returning.

"A comfortable and restful experience"
Anthony H, 09 Avril 2019

We arrived late at night after a flight from UK to Miami and drive to Fort Lauderdale. The friendly welcome was an indication of how we were to be treated for the next 8 days by all the staff. The hotel is located close to but not on the beach, within walking distance of a variety of restaurants. It is well maintained and clean. Altogether a very comfortable and relaxing experience.

"Post cruise stay"
Davidandsally Z, 08 Avril 2019

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.

"Nice beachfront hotel"
yves_labbe, 01 Avril 2019

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.

"Poor service, Pool not heated as advertised."
anonymousJ2599SC, 01 Avril 2019

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. Service at the bar/restaurant was slow and incorrect, except for one amazing staff member. Otherwise staff was rude and made you feel like an inconvenience. Not worth the price AT ALL!

"LIKE THE BEACH? GO HERE!"
Rita P, 01 Avril 2019

location location location. beach just across the street, airport and cruise terminal not far away. the breakfast buffet will blow your mind with the variety of items. shower was huge. everything was clean and comfy.

"Good hotel, great location"
133luisp, 30 Mars 2019

The rooms are renovated, nice and clean. Breakfast is included and it is good for all ages. The hotel does not have ocean view but the beach is just a block ahead. There was only one elevator working.

"Close to the Beach"
Voyager22137723877, 30 Mars 2019

This motel is just a couple minutes' walk to the beach. Our kids also enjoyed swimming in the outdoor pool. The breakfast had a nice variety. We enjoyed our stay and would come back! There is a balcony with two chairs! Bye!

"Average Stay"
adrianlK1486XS, 27 Mars 2019

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.

"The best hotel in Ft Launderdale"
falladina, 25 Mars 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.

"Enjoyable"
Cristin H, 20 Mars 2019

The Best Western was nicer than we expected. It is a short walking distance to the beach, quiet, and the staff was really friendly. We really enjoyed the bar tender / waitress who has been there for 29 years!

"Good location "
Visalia11, 19 Mars 2019

Hotel is older but has had upgrades done. Short walk to beach. Could walk to water taxi. Several good restaurants in the area. Breakfast included with eggs etc. nice looking pool but we did not use. We stayed one night before a cruise. Comfy bed. Not a bad choice

"Night before cruise stay"
D8520JZpatriciac, 18 Mars 2019

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.

"Staff needs SERIOUS work!!!!"
Caroline L, 15 Mars 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.

"Thanks a million"
haroldk120, 15 Mars 2019

Stayed here twice before and after our cruise; the bathrooms are still small. Going home I foolishly left me tablet in our room. The housekeeping staff found it and when I inquired, already at the gate for my airplane, they confirmed that they had it and could send it to me. After an exchange of emails I'm assured it's on its way! Heartfelt thanks to Carolina Bello, General Manager and Maria Escala, Housekeeping.

"A lovely hotel"
_royviv2010, 14 Mars 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!!

"Relaxing vacation!"
Joann D, 13 Mars 2019

The staff wAs helpful, friendly and always made you feel comfortable. Our room was always ready and clean. The front desk was always ready to help with directions etc. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff was excellent.

"7 times here Great hotel , Great Staff Great buffet"
Brookings1966, 13 Mars 2019

Checked in March 12 , Great staff , Leila at the breakfast buffet from Venezuela was very exceptional also front manager Trevienne exceptional thanks for making our stay very enjoyable. High quality breakfast buffet. Next to beach and short walk down to Fort Lauderdale. Great hotel to stay before your cruise. See you next time Leila

"Beware the Bar and the unfriendly staff....."
Tom A, 12 Mars 2019

Horrible service in the bar with the bar/restaurant about 30% full. The staff in the hotel was very cold and unfriendly. In all my years staying at the Best westen I have never seen this level of apathy before. It was as though we were inconveniencing the staff by being at the hotel. Very strange indeed.

"Had fun at the pool"
OnAir666652, 10 Mars 2019

Relaxing and clean. Food is tasty and priced right. You really do t need to 3ver leave the hotel. Location fantastic beside the beach. The staff are friendly. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The pool is in full view of the lobby which is nice.

"Great place to start vacation"
JimboCanucks, 06 Mars 2019

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.

""Wonderful Experience""
Escape636342, 05 Mars 2019

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!

"Nice Stay"
Jessi01, 05 Mars 2019

Very clean and fresh poolside room and staff were accomodating in all aspects. Pool area is well maintained with lounges, tables and umbrella avaiable. Breakfeast buffet was as excellant as we have found staying here over the years.

"Perfect location, excellent staff and great rooms!"
jbR725UB, 05 Mars 2019

Location is perfect - close enough to strip to walk but far enough out of the noise. Short little walk to beach. Great pool with 2nd level deck access rooms. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Can't say enough good things!

"Excellent service, fantastic stay"
akulk001, 04 Mars 2019

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...!!

"Very Comfortable!"
darth2015, 01 Mars 2019

The breakfast was very good and the room is light, bright and clean. I enjoyed lounging on the nice size deck looking over the pool. The staff was helpful making me and my brother's one day stay memorable.

"Stop Over on Our Way to the Keys"
DeborahL428, 27 Février 2019

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.

"Great location and amazing staff!"
Buckscuffle, 26 Février 2019

We had a great stay, breakfast was delicious the room was nicely decorated. Close access to the beach and you can ask the front desk to borrow beach chairs and umbrellas as well as some sand toys! We are in the onsite restaurant and the food was delicious! Will stay again!

"Staff was great and accomadating"
clharlin, 24 Février 2019

We arrived at 5:00am and the staff greeted us with a smile but of course our rooms weren't ready. We hung out in the pool area and were able to get some coffee while we waited. Our group slowly got our rooms but were able to enjoy the great hot breakfast beforehand. The rooms were great and we booked the ones with the patio on the second level.

"short trip to FLL for some warmth"
Curiosity07778124092, 23 Février 2019

Overall a pleasant stay. Just wanted to go get some sun as living in the cold north (Toronto) was becoming dreary. The proximity to the beach and nearby restaurants was handy. We didn't need a car as we used Uber. The hotel staff were very friendly. Breakfast was excellent.

"Great location and Courteous staff"
DayTrip525922, 20 Février 2019

Hotel is only a few minute walk to beach. They offer a great continental breakfast. Great location to cruise port and airport. Staff is friendly and hotel is clean. We had a great stay on our family vacation.

"Always a safe choice"
Pauromvil, 19 Février 2019

Great location just a few steps to the beach and restaurants. Really nice decorated rooms. Good breakfast selection as usual at bestwestern plus hotels. Just no so friendly front desk staff Best western plus is always a safe choice at a reasonable price when it comes to hotel booking.

"Great location and price"
NeverTraveledEnough, 18 Février 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.

"Excellent Stay at the Best Western Plus - Oceanside Inn"
ilenepaulabryson, 18 Février 2019

I can not say enough about the excellent customer service we received at this hotel. From the minute we arrived, until the second we checked out, we had excellent customer service. What an amazing property whose staff understands customer service.

"Nice hotel for pre-cruise stay"
jodyw549, 17 Février 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.

"Really Nice Hotel, well located and good staff"
Officerdee, 15 Février 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.

"Great pre cruise hotel."
jbellwv, 14 Février 2019

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.

"Nice hotel!"
halinarn, 12 Février 2019

This is an older hotel in a great location. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Short ride to the airport. Comfortable clean room and friendly staff. This hotel has a complimentary breakfast buffet.

"Complementary breakfasts"
Joe Y, 12 Février 2019

Staff were very helpful, courteous, competent, layout of amenities convenient, complementary breakfasts "to die for" location of property convenient, easy access to trolleys, public transportation- an excellent property for teams training at the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex, only .6 miles from thje property

"Great stay once again!"
herbyroo, 11 Février 2019

We just love it there! The front desk lady is very nice. The lady that works the bar is very nice also and remembers us every time we visit. The rooms are always clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is great!

"Diamond in the rough!"
mfalace, 07 Février 2019

What a great hotel for a quick overnight stay! Walking distance to the beach and deli. Clean, comfortable room with balcony - partially obstructed ocean view. Breakfast was good-quite a variety to choose from and the staff kept everything spotless!

"Comfortable for short term stay"
gunturboy, 04 Février 2019

Was easy to find and close to Ft. Lauderdale boardwalk and restaurants. We were there less than 24 hours. We stayed overnight between flights to visit friends. We did have dinner in downtown Ft. Lauderdale on the main street - I think Hotel Beverly.

"Tacky "
Amanda v, 03 Février 2019

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.

"Perfect spot...perfect stay!"
N8TVNYRKR, 03 Février 2019

Cruising out of Fort Lauderdale, this is a perfect stay the night before. Cruise parking less than 5 miles away and you can even see the ships, if you're in the right room. Comfortable rooms, quiet, very personable staff, restaurant/bar in the lobby area, awesome pool and great breakfast! What more can I say? Perfect spot...perfect stay!

"Great Stay Prior to Cruise"
sweetestpea21, 03 Février 2019

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.

"Terrible Terrible Terrible!"
kdp1111, 30 Janvier 2019

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.

"Great visit"
Jerry O, 28 Janvier 2019

This hotel has everything. Friendly & helpful staff, excellent free buffet, comfortable rooms and a great location at the beach a d short walk to water taxi or good restaurants. We will go back ! It an easy Uber from the airport. It's great for a stay between flights.

"beautiful facility"
BozeKnows, 25 Janvier 2019

friendly service, beautiful room, delicious breakfast. They even stored our luggage when we arrived too early. Only $6.70 from the pier and $25 from airport. Restaurant was friendly and delicious but a little pricey.

"Always a Great Stay"
Timothy O, 24 Janvier 2019

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.

"Great place to relax & hang at the beach. Stayed over one night after cruise"
KellCline, 23 Janvier 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.

"Margery"
Margery O, 23 Janvier 2019

Once again we have returned to this wonderful hotel. We have been coming here for at least 15 yrs. like us there is another couple who comes from Europe every year for three weeks at a time. The people who work here are like family. Patricia in housekeeping welcomes us. Monique who has worked here for 30 years isn't well and we miss her. Rose, Laila and the young man who tends the bar and restaurant in the evening are also like family. They welcome the guests with a warm hello and make you feel like you are home. Someone stopped us and asked about the hotel. Rave reviews.

"Great Spot Before a Cruise"
ZackG, 22 Janvier 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!

"Amazing Location!"
Willram, 17 Janvier 2019

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.

"Good ambiance"
164dons, 15 Janvier 2019

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.

"Another Great Stay at the Oceanside - 2019"
Glen G, 15 Janvier 2019

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.

"Perfect post cruise stay!"
Green146, 14 Janvier 2019

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!

"Better than expected"
Andrew T, 14 Janvier 2019

Just spent a week at this hotel. Everything was great. Rita at Front Desk during check in was great. Breakfast in the morning was great. Our balcony was on the south side , lots of sun all day with great sunset views. Also,the housekeeping team did a fantastic job. Compliments to the entire team!

"Pre-Cruise Fort Lauderdale"
Lovesomefun, 10 Janvier 2019

Traveled with 12 family members to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise. Stayed at the Best Western Oceanside Inn pre-cruise. Great location, great staff. Would definitely stay here again. Property is older but they have done a great job maintaining and updating this property.

"our first stay"
sunajocr, 08 Janvier 2019

we use to book hotels around it and have our breakfast there. we were not disappointed when we stayed there. we even had dinner at the bar and the staff was courteous and friendly. the breakfast is better than other best western location.

"very pleasant stay"
Scott R, 08 Janvier 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"
Bob E, 08 Janvier 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"
Belinda S, 07 Janvier 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, 02 Janvier 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.

"Not beachfront, nor oceanside"
PDeCampers, 31 Décembre 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.

"Overnight before Cruise"
MissJenni768, 31 Décembre 2018

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, 21 Décembre 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!!!

"Well locatif for pré cruise"
Freedom07961631866, 17 Décembre 2018

The hotel is well located near the beach and the cruise port. Nice choice for the breakfast. Sheet are not confortable. No possibility to get the room before 3 pm for the baby nap. The pool is great.ach

"Awesome"
Candeeluve, 12 Décembre 2018

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, 09 Décembre 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.

"a great weekend"
Adventure04346261267, 08 Décembre 2018

Clean and friendly service and hotel, would defintely stay again! Food was excellent and plenty of variety. The rooms were nice and clean with comfortable beds. The staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was nice and clean.

"Great Hotel"
Sammy1Canada, 07 Décembre 2018

Great Hotel. Close to the beach and also the cruise port in Fort Lauderdale. Nice clean room. Staff were very pleasant. Good breakfast with a variety of food items. No shuttle to the airport but they will book one for you for $25.

"Excellant time"
howardd182, 30 Novembre 2018

The entire staff here are the most hospitable of anywhere I have stayed . Best value for your money of any of the hotels on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The employees truly care about guests & their jobs! Excellent location !

"Wow! Great stay and great value"
2Midwest, 21 Novembre 2018

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.

"Very nice accommodations"
donaldh886, 19 Novembre 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!!

"Good 2-3 star motel"
richardla2017, 18 Novembre 2018

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.

"Cruise Stopover"
EddieA1, 18 Novembre 2018

Stayed here once again to catch a cruise. Had a nice room with balcony overlooking the pool. Quick super friendly check in. Great bar and grill bar service. Very good Hot breakfast continental. Most importantly nice clean room. In my opinion pretty good value for the area.

"Great Stay!"
Gardengaldenise, 17 Novembre 2018

We had a great stay at this hotel. Quick check in. Clean hotel, comfortable beds. Continental breakfast was included. It was good. The hotel has an outdoor pool with multiple sundecks on different levels. Hotel is very close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and Port Everglades.Perfect stay for a pre cruise. Would stay here again.

"Very pleasantly surprised"
Arubaanna, 15 Novembre 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, 13 Novembre 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.

"Good hotel close to beach"
Scooteepuff, 30 Octobre 2018

Clean hotel located about a block from the beach. Nice breakfast. Poor reception for TV. Service kept cutting out on multiple channels. Hotel about 15 minute ride to cruise terminal. Good basic hotel.

"Great value!"
flicka525, 23 Octobre 2018

Hotel is close to beach, affordable, clean and has great breakfast! Also, the food we ordered was great (1/2 lb. burger and fries). Drinks were WAY cheaper than down the street. Beautiful pool area also.

"Vacation"
Kent F, 18 Octobre 2018

This was a fantastic place to stay! The bed linens were clean. The room was clean. The staff was friendly and courteous. The the food was amazing and the breakfast at was more than adequate. The pool was clean and comfortable. Close to the beach. A fantastic experience overall. If I could give it a 10 out of 5 I would!

"Good for the price "
Emmi M, 18 Octobre 2018

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.

"Modest But Perfect"
susankT1470XO, 12 Octobre 2018

This Hotel was in a great location, only a block from ocean! The price was right in comparison to other hotels,clean, great free breakfast every morning, lounge and bar area very nice, pool is modest but nice. I would definitely stay there again! Also great price for daily parking!

"Good value"
eversj33, 12 Octobre 2018

Good service from Ullia. She was very helpful. Very clean and a great location close to the beach. Plenty of options at breakfast and good coffee. My only complaint would be the AC is on the loud side.

"Nice Small Hotel"
David K, 25 Septembre 2018

Very nice small hotel tucked back in the area. Management was very nice food was delicious from the bar breakfast could've been better. No beach access is the only drawback would definitely stay there again due to cleanliness and price.

"Great choice!"
Kim T, 22 Septembre 2018

Very clean hotel and rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Continental breakfast. 2 minute walk to the beach. Close to shopping and restaurants. Sun trolley route so easy way to commute. Highly recommend this hotel.

"Last minute--best choice, great people"
cabLouisville_KY, 15 Septembre 2018

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.

"Personality Plus!"
Randi M, 07 Septembre 2018

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.

"Amazing as always"
cwdawg32, 07 Septembre 2018

My dad and I have spent many days and nights here and it's always amazing. Every time we some back something has improved. Their service is also great and helps you feel at home. I'd like to give a special thanks to Rose and Ullia.

"Pleasant Surprise"
2SmoBear, 04 Septembre 2018

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!

"clean simple hotel decent locale"
mikegS2957PH, 04 Septembre 2018

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..."
Cindy M, 04 Septembre 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.

"Great Value and Awesome staff"
Jenn Y, 03 Septembre 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

"Suprisingly great"
rhino18us, 21 Août 2018

It was fantastic . I was very pleased with everything about this hotel. I had called Thurs because I was arriving Friday and they sent me a pre arrival email. Check in was very easy and the breakfast buffet was awesome . Also very close to the beach as well . Wow,

"Hotel minutes from the beach!"
Brad O, 21 Août 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!!

"Disappointed, was hoping for better"
vanda s, 16 Août 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.

"Nostalgic break"
Tim S, 07 Août 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.

"Oceanside best Western"
Cheryl8452, 06 Août 2018

Really nice, clean accommodations. Has fire place, small fridge, stove top, coffee maker. Everything needed for small meal in room. Like the updated restaurant and Coffee bar. Patio great for people watching, ocean gazing.

"Nice hotel"
captsin, 06 Août 2018

Stayed there one night before driving to key west very clean nice staff good rates great location would stay again very friendly staff ate the free breakfast pretty good variety not fantastic but quite a few options

"Beach Hotel"
jim r, 06 Août 2018

Stayed for 6 nights as a family of 5 adults in a room with 2 double beds and a fold out sofa. Great hotel, free buffet breakfast, staff friendly and helpful, clean and well maintained. Its a 2 minute walk to the beach which is ideal. Only minor drawback was the car park is a little small. Lounge bar with 3 large TV's. But overall its a great place to stay.

"Great experience!!!"
Marcus1779, 02 Août 2018

Came to BW+ with my family and we had a great time. Rooms gets clean every day. Very nice staff and Mrs. Jen really took care of us make us feeling home. Nice breakfast as well. Definitely will be back.

"almost perfect"
jennawsome, 30 Juillet 2018

Everything about this hotel was amazing except for the parking the parking is so horrible. I barely found a spot for myself none the less people who were visiting me for the night. I recommend maybe parking at the beach and walking or ubering

"Quick Weekend"
holidayvargas, 28 Juillet 2018

This hotel I've visited a few times before but the first time since the upgrade. This hotel takes payment at check in and not check out. (Independent Owner rules) The parking garage is next door and have access both the pool and the beach. The pool is super clean and open. The beach is 5 minutes walking. All sorts of off property restaurants.

"Sun, Sea & Great Service"
seetheworldgirls, 28 Juillet 2018

We had an excellent quick beach get away. The hotel is in a prime location, walking distance to the beach, restaurants the water taxi, and shops. 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. Many thanks to Ullia for all of her help, guidance and giving us an umbrella to use when it starting drizzling when we were heading out. Great stay...we definitely be back whenever I need more sun, sea and great service!

"Beach Access at an Amazing Price"
skeene432517, 25 Juillet 2018

Breakfast at this hotel is better than average! Menu options changed daily. The pool and upper deck areas were well kept and beautiful with plenty of outdoor seating between the two, and it was just a short walk to a beautiful beach! The rooms were clean and spacious.

"Pre cruise family fun"
H6572LSjamesl, 24 Juillet 2018

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.

"Great location - close to beach, cruise terminals, restaurants."
JamesB1947, 22 Juillet 2018

Hotel is not new but has been updated and well maintained. Efficient, friendly staff. Great breakfast included. Small but OK pool. One of the two elevators was not functioning and this led to some delays. Overall, very good, would stay there again.

"Great place to stay"
Fernando G, 22 Juillet 2018

Super clean rooms and great staff, i would definitly recommend this place. The hotel has a Bar that is open until 11pm and a clean swimming pool, the beach is like 4 minutes walking, they have the breakfast include

"Great Property - Wonderful Staff!"
SG-AZRealtor, 18 Juillet 2018

Great property located within a 2 minute walk to the beach. It does not have direct access to the beach, but is literally a very short walk around the corner. The staff here are amazing! Rooms are clean and comfortable. The customer service is top notch and would highly recommend staying for either business or leisure!

"Very good hotel-would recommend it!"
GEOFFREY H, 07 Juillet 2018

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!

"Beautiful, clean, inexpensive, and right on the beach"
Gregory S, 06 Juillet 2018

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!

"Very enjoyable!"
JMA032, 05 Juillet 2018

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.

"One night stay"
bagelboy66, 28 Juin 2018

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.

"Great Staff Great Location"
sheiple, 20 Juin 2018

The location of the beach was very nice, right around the corner within a 5 minute walk. The pool is a nice addition for those who do not like to swim in the ocean but want to cool off. 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!

"Wondering How it will be"
drebud, 20 Juin 2018

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"
Kaniethia J, 19 Juin 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.

"Great Breakfast and Great stay"
mommyfish2, 15 Juin 2018

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.

"Back Again! And Glad!!"
rosaria g, 13 Juin 2018

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!

"Good deal at the beach"
GATerp1, 13 Juin 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.

"3 words: DON'T STAY HERE"
220Molly, 13 Juin 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!

"You get exactly what you pay for which is alright!"
Queens Village NY traveler, 12 Juin 2018

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!

"A very nice hotel within walking distance to the beach"
sk009, 04 Juin 2018

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.

"Poor room, good breakfast"
edweisberg10, 30 Mai 2018

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.

"Pre- Cruise night"
MermaidMan, 27 Mai 2018

Our family of four stayed here before our cruise. It was raining the entire time we were there so we didn't see anything outside the property or use the pool. A little bit older property but adequate. Price was great. A little ways from FLL beach area shops and restaurants, $5 Uber ride away.

"It was okay"
Lilbree, 27 Mai 2018

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.

"Our pre-cruise hotel !!"
pddixon, 27 Mai 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.

"Great Location and Staff"
Jpertel62, 26 Mai 2018

My daughter and I are staying here at the Best Western Plus in Oceanside for a soccer tournament for Memorial Day Weekend. It's a super convenient and well-maintained hotel. We're very pleased! I want to particularly commend Cesar, who checked us in upon our arrival. He was genuinely warm and helpful . . . he even offered to let us borrow an iPhone charger that my kid forgot to bring for the weekend. Crisis avoided!

"Totally loyal to BW Plus Seabreeze Blvd"
Jane G, 23 Mai 2018

Only a 12 minute drive from Airport , direct access to beach, training room and pool at Hotel. Along Seabreeze Blvd enjoy jogging , walking or cycling - after which you can enjoy a full breakfast! (BTW bicycles can be rented not far from hotel) Washing machines and dryers available at hotel - friendly and helpful staff. Renovated- clean and our #1 spot since 2012!! Jane&Dan

"Overnight stay"
robertoP8996HE, 10 Mai 2018

Very Good Service. Nice Pool. Gave us a Grab Bag for Breakfast, since our flights departure was very early in the morning. Had a very enjoyable stay!!! I would recommend this Best Western Plus to visitors in this area!!!

"Best Surprise"
Protandim_Mike, 09 Mai 2018

Room was clean. Location was easy for beach, restaurants and quick FLL Airport Uber ride. Tempted to make a trip just for this hotel and beach. The breakfast was great and not just because it was free. The fact it also has a bar & grill was also a plus. The ONLY true hiccup was the in-room safe didn't work.

"Avoid the front desk staff and it's a great place"
James S, 08 Mai 2018

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!

"Nice hotel"
karen k, 07 Mai 2018

Nice hotel, our room was very big with an amazing bathroom. Staff friendly and nice bar food. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Great for a stop over, not sure if i would book for 7 night stay holiday.

"Good location before cruise"
Dani B, 01 Mai 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.

"Before cruise."
MariaBerumen, 01 Mai 2018

I arrived early morning from a red eye from Los Angeles California. And Nina was the first employee I saw in the morning, we were tired from our trip and she was wonderful she took care of my luggage she gave us breakfast and gave us the password for the internet then right after that we met Ullia Felicien !!! 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.

"Nice stay, great location!"
Van H, 30 Avril 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"
Kelsey F, 21 Avril 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!

"Not the best, but not the worst "
Fantasmaniac, 19 Avril 2018

We stayed here two days before our cruise. Great breakfast buffet options and close to the beach. The room was clean, but was in need of some repairs. I would probably recommend this hotel for families.

"Excellent place to stay"
sylviechalifoux, 17 Avril 2018

we were at Fort Lauderdale for I night before our cruise vacation. We were happy to enjoy this beautiful hotel, nice emplacement, near by the beach. The ladies welcome us with the smile! We really recommend this Best Western!

"PreCruise stay"
backwaterboy, 16 Avril 2018

Very reasonable rates good food and drinks.....older style rooms but they were clean and very close to Port Everglades.....Staff was outstanding.....Will be our new go to place when sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale...

"Very disappointed"
kath1919, 16 Avril 2018

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.

"really nice stay ......"
willing292, 15 Avril 2018

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.

"Great location for beach, bars and restaurants"
Peter E, 15 Avril 2018

Only 2 mins from the beach but a little expensive for what it was. Room was a good size and very comfortable but shower was very basic. WiFi speed excellent. Downside was the poor breakfast and no airport shuttle. Check in and check out process all very easy and friendly.

"Best Western Plus Inn.......better than expected!"
honolulugirl75, 07 Avril 2018

We were here for two nights....two rooms for family. Excellent service at front desk... friendly and very helpful! Rooms were great...beds and pillows wonderful. Would definitely stay again! No airport transfers which would have been nice, but they would call a taxi for $25. We used Uber for $20.

"A jewel of a find!"
Jeremy S, 04 Avril 2018

Another fantastic place to stay! So close to the beach, super friendly and helpful staff, and a yummy full breakfast to boot! I would recommend this hotel for sure. We will be back. Ullia at the front desk made our stay memorable by allowing us to check in early, even letting us have breakfast before we could get a room. You can walk to the beach from the hotel in about 2 minutes or less.

"The bartender Louis "
brandonraz, 01 Avril 2018

Louis was an incredible bartender never seen a man work as hard as him and it was only his second day the bar should be ranked because of his service. The room I stayed in was also spotless I would recommend staying here or even just stopping in for a drink

"Worst experience!"
Hailunpb, 30 Mars 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.

"We come back"
Stefanie S, 30 Mars 2018

still the perfect place for a getaway for us, we come back each year. small nice hotel, good location, close to the beach (3min walk), great staff, good breakfast. looking forward to be back again this year.

"Great location. Friendly staff. Comfortable stay."
ottobekim, 26 Mars 2018

Stayed here with my two teenagers while we toured local colleges. Price was reasonable. Hotel was within walking distance to the beach and a handful of restaurants. Staff was friendly and parking was easy. There were a lot of families with small children staying here, but it was not noisy at all. I definitely recommend this place for a quick stay. The pool was nice and breakfast was good.

"Be Aware!!"
d1234894, 21 Mars 2018

$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..

"Service and Friendly Staff "
Edie E, 19 Mars 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!!

"Location, location, location with lots of pluses"
vlmky, 10 Mars 2018

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!

"Wonderful hotel with exceptional employees"
Joan G, 07 Mars 2018

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.

"Nice hotel"
Francine L, 05 Mars 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.

"Nice but tight quarters"
desnuggs, 05 Mars 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.

"Wonderful hotel to stay at in Ft Lauderdale"
Margery O, 04 Mars 2018

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.

"Horrible service"
POCisme, 04 Mars 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.

"A lot to love!"
lebelgo, 28 Février 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!

"Great spot for pre-cruise stay"
RManOnTour, 26 Février 2018

Stayed here prior to a cruise out of Port Everglades and the spot and hotel worked perfectly - easily walking distance to the ocean / beach without crossing a street plus comfortable rooms and free breakfast makes for a good stay!

"Excellent location!"
DeniseWayne, 24 Février 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!

"Perfect place to stay"
JenR8R, 24 Février 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.

"Nice hotel with good amenities"
1Jannie, 23 Février 2018

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, 21 Février 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.

"Super place to stay!"
g3times, 20 Février 2018

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.

"Last minute surprise trip!"
Dawn D, 19 Février 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".

"Comfortable room"
Soccermike1015, 19 Février 2018

Very convenient to the port if you are taking a cruise. Very nice lounge, bar, restaurant area. Also within walking distance to water. Not cheap ! Busy area, can be noisy at times but everything you need is nearby.

"Superior Customer Care x10!!!!!!!!!!!"
Kevin H, 18 Février 2018

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.

"wonderful but short stay"
IceColdCranberry, 12 Février 2018

We stayed overnight at the Best Western Plus Oceanside pre cruise on February 2, 2018. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly, the breakfast satisfactory and location great! Overall I would highly recommend it!

"Location location"
Marsha0806, 04 Février 2018

Convenient to cruise port. Had a cruise scheduled and this was such a good location to drive over and park next to ship. Very nice lounge, bar, restaurant area. Had drinks and dinner. Very good. Recommend this hotel. Also within walking distance to water.

"End of vacation"
Barbara L, 01 Février 2018

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.

"Great Hotel for Pre-Cruise"
MimiandPapa2862, 31 Janvier 2018

We spent two nights here before our cruise and everything was great. Our room was spacious, clean, and I loved that we had a tub. Close to the beach and within walking distance of good restaurants. 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.

"Excellent staff and location"
Lynton191, 30 Janvier 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.

"The difference between Heaven and Hell"
gigglesnortt, 28 Janvier 2018

Clean rooms, comfy beds and excellent service. Excellent location just steps from the Atlantic ocean. Ullia and Maressa at the front desk were phenomenal angels. 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! I arrived from out of state to view a property in the area. The hospitality I recieved from Ullia and Maressa made me fall in love with Fort Lauderdale!! Thank you ladies!! I highly suggest this place to anyone looking for a safe comfortable place.

"1 plus 3 Nights"
john s, 28 Janvier 2018

stayed at this property 1 night before the cruise and 3 nights after ----- older property upgraded --- clean and comfortable rooms ---- good variety at breakfast ---- the eating area is kept nice and clean --- the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful --- however Ullia Felicien was outstanding --- good sense of humor and extremely efficient --- gave great advice of what to do in the area and even booked a tour for us ( we were 4 adults ) --- this property is close to the beach, stop #5 for the water taxi, good eats and a nice market close by ( about 3 to 5 min. walk ) --- will stay again

"Pleasant, Comfortable Stay"
WizardBristol, 23 Janvier 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.

"This hotel is very clean, organized and comfortable"
clarionsite, 22 Janvier 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.

"Wow! Unexpected great service!"
Siobhan J, 19 Janvier 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, 19 Janvier 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, 17 Janvier 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.

"Great location, lovely hotel"
terry2015161, 12 Janvier 2018

Clean, comfortable rooms, nice decor.. this BW hotel is located within about a ten minute walk of great restaurants, shopping, and bottle shops. Great place to set out for a stroll along the ocean shore.

"Great for night before cruise "
Lisa H, 11 Janvier 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 the One"
Bill K, 09 Janvier 2018

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.

"Two short stays - both good"
JoandJoe2011, 07 Janvier 2018

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 .

"Wonderful Stay"
Tripsters2, 05 Janvier 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!

"Nice location"
Kara B, 04 Janvier 2018

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.

"Great place to stay before a cruise"
Robinob, 03 Janvier 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.

"nice"
yienjoyfood, 02 Janvier 2018

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.

"Second visit and it was great!"
Harleygirl2010, 29 Décembre 2017

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!

"good place and very good staff"
johnsU8209CN, 28 Décembre 2017

Clean room, very good breakfast, large and good swimming pool, just one block from the beach and walk about 100 ft to the water, nice garage, looks modern, they didn't try to advance of my late booking but they made a great rate! will use it again if returned to the area

"Pre Cruise stay. Short walk to ocean beach."
Lori H, 27 Décembre 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).

"Clean and comfortable"
amypW6097JI, 26 Décembre 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.

"Great Location and Price for Everyone"
Jeremiah W, 21 Décembre 2017

BW Plus Oceanside is a great affordable accommodation right close to cruise ship terminal, airport, beach and A1A. Decent pool and bar with a nicely appointed breakfast offering. Will stay here again due to the convenience and price.

"Terrific hotel by the beach"
Patricia C, 19 Décembre 2017

I have stayed at this hotel on 3 different occasions, and every experience is wonderful! The staff is terrific, the room are clean, and it's walking distance to attractions. This also has the Best Western super comfy beds for a peaceful nights sleep.

"Friendly staff and good value for money"
743fionag, 17 Décembre 2017

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.

"Nice Clean Property"
mustang4088, 16 Décembre 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.

"Western to remember"
BealSouthend, 12 Décembre 2017

We were looking for a place to stay away from the hustle of fort Lauderdale and this was the place.The rooms were spacious and clean.The breakfast was one of the best we have experienced in a value hotel.This was let down a bit by the evening restaurant.The meal was not worth the money and the surroundings were canteen type

"Amazing Staff"
joski40, 09 Décembre 2017

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.

"Excellent start for a 8 day cruise. This hotel and staff, breakfast far exceeded my expectations. Love this place and st"
Danielteachey, 08 Décembre 2017

This hotel and staff was awesome. Very attentive and Professional to our needs before we left out on a 8 day cruise. One and a half miles from Port Everglades. The breakfast was the best that i recall from any hotel I have stayed in. The breakfast crew, check in and out staff was amazing. I could go on and on but I can only give them a 10. Deserve a 110. Thank you for a Great Hotel Experience.

"Well located for cruise terminal & airport."
MikeHarman, 08 Décembre 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.

"Nice Post-Cruise stay"
bioniccoulpe, 04 Décembre 2017

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

"Wonderful pre-cruise stay"
K4583DLjohnt, 03 Décembre 2017

Hotel is clean, nice folks, great breakfast and even laundry area was clean and in good working order. Close to beach and also restaurants on the strip. Lot's of possible activities. They stored our bags because we arrived early before check in. They were very accommodating. We had 3 rooms all very clean and ready and good locations.

"Great location"
maureent239, 03 Décembre 2017

This hotel is ideally suited for a short stay before or after a cruise. It is close to the water taxis, and not far from airport and cruise port. Rooms are very nice, very nicely decorated. Could definitely use some shelving in the bathroom, which is huge.

"BW Review"
Laurie B, 03 Décembre 2017

Hotel going through renovations. Looking good. Front desk staff was fantastic - Ullia and Rita. Bar was closed which was disappointing. Very close to beach. Overall would recommend this hotel to others.

"Great Stay"
lljohnson, 30 Novembre 2017

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!

"Great location!"
V576TZpamelal, 29 Novembre 2017

Comfortable, clean Best Western room quality I expect in a GREAT location! Easy walk to beach and restaurants. 10 minute taxi ride to port for cruise ships and 15 minute taxi ride to airport. Perfect for our short overnight in transit. Got to enjoy a little of Ft. L and swim in ocean with no logistical hassles! Front desk gave me pool towels to take to the beach!

"Excellent staff and location"
GreenbrierBuckeye, 29 Novembre 2017

To start I spoke with Rita on the phone and she was extremely pleasant and helpful. I checked in and she was at the desk with Ullia. It's been a while since I enjoyed checking into a hotel. 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.

"wonderful hotel and staff"
Tripsters2, 28 Novembre 2017

Location is of primary importance to us. Oceanside hotel is very close to the beach and the cruise port. I wish there was a free airport shuttle. We saw a refreshing pool with lots of loungers but preferred to swim in the ocean. We ordered a delicious dinner in the lounge. Maressa was very accommodating and helpful at check in. The rooms are very comfortable and we plan to return after our cruise.

"Great place for a precruise stay"
O9980FEdavidr, 27 Novembre 2017

This hotel is a great place to stay before leaving on a cruise. It is close to the port and the water taxi stop is just down the street. Ullia at the front desk was out standing. I would recommend this hotel, it has a lot to offer.

"Short stay"
jacquelinecF6804DN, 22 Novembre 2017

Pleasant staff and surroundings fine for the cost process at breakfast was unclear as I couldn't see how the hotel would stop anyone having breakfast though our booking costs included breakfast. Reception staff pleasant except one young man who didn't smile and was fine with us waiting 1 and a half hrs for our room having arrived early after travelling 24hrs !

"Worst stay of my life - incredibly rude manager"
justjennie777, 22 Novembre 2017

I arrived and was charged $55 for sending a box of diapers ahead of me. The manager screamed at me and said, "if you don't want to pay, you can just leave, just go on.." as I was holding a crying baby. The fridge dint work, the stopper to take a bath didn't work and the carpets smelled. They were absolutely HORRID to deal with, Stay away.

"great stay at the end of our cruise"
kevincJ5812KI, 20 Novembre 2017

we had a group of 12 we split the group and stayed in two suites both very nice, comfy beds and good a/c easy access to the beach a 5 minute walk, great pool area and nice full bar area also great breakfast as well and some of our group had to go to airport early so staff packed them a goody bag since they missed breakfast. very relaxing place to stay, staff very friendly, clean rooms reasonable pricing for suites, slept 6 people very comfortably we also utilized a free shuttle service that takes you around the beach area for free, tips only

"If you are looking for a great place to stay, make this your first choice!"
F8722EFstephaniep, 17 Novembre 2017

Excellent all the way around. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was awesome ( a very good variety of eats). The beds were comfy and I had control of the temp in the room. Only a short walking distance to the beach.

"Bad routines led us into a tourist trap. Processing complaints badly. Find other options."
Helge Saksum T, 17 Novembre 2017

We used the hotel in connection with that we were going on a criuse, seeing more complaints on bad routines. Stupid that a few events and treating a complaint will ruin for the entire stay. Here the hotel has something to learn

"great location"
D7812HAgaryp, 15 Novembre 2017

Comfortable and great value. We have stayed here several times and enjoy it every time. Walking distance to the beach and a marina where you can rent a boat or take a water taxi. The food at breakfast is the best I have had anywhere where is included with the stay.

"Nice place but starting to show her age"
Darren B, 14 Novembre 2017

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. They have lots of choices hot or cold for you to enjoy. There is a small bar and snack stand right off the lobby. The location and the breakfast are the best part of the Best Western Oceanside Inn.

"Best place to stay in FLL"
Stefanie S, 12 Novembre 2017

Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn is the best place to stay when you are in FLL. Good place, nice staff, great location, close to beach. We come back since 17 years. Looking forward to be back in 2018 :-)

"Convenient to conference, close to beach"
Jean P, 12 Novembre 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.

"Great stay"
Kathy P, 12 Novembre 2017

Ullia and Shell we extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. And Rose is always a joy! Thanks for the great stay and its and conveniently located. Just a short walk to the beach. Can't wait to come back.

"Ok for one night"
jherman771, 09 Novembre 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, 04 Novembre 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

"Very good pre cruise stay"
Eric F, 30 Octobre 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.

"Comfortable and inexpensive"
brianfS4442IQ, 30 Octobre 2017

Very near the beach but low cost and very comfortable. The staff was helpful. The views were not the best but this was a place designed to give you rest between hitting the beach, which was steps away and local clubs and restaurants also nest by.

"Stayed prior to cruise"
Kanda M, 28 Octobre 2017

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.

"Was there a week and had to check back in cause i was sick"
Pamela F, 23 Octobre 2017

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.

"Staying after a cruise"
Sandra9T0, 23 Octobre 2017

Coming off a cruise I just wanted to rest and I sure did those pillows are so fluffy I felt so comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious. My check in/out with Ullia and Shell was delightful they are great! Went beyond to get me coupons and a shuttle to the airport. Thank you ladies!

"Best value in Ft Lauderdale!"
hillaryh482, 21 Octobre 2017

I came to Fort Lauderdale for a conference at the hotel next door. It was an extremely clean and friendly hotel. I would absolutely stay here again any time! Close to the beach and downtown (walking distance), friendly staff, fantastic housekeeping!

"very nice"
louiscW9286CN, 19 Octobre 2017

Great hotel good food, breakfast is the best and different most days, bar, close to ocean, pool, rooms and halls very clean. Very friendly staff. Easy parking , close to stores and the strip. Going back on the next vacation.

"WONDERFUL"
Lyn1950, 17 Octobre 2017

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.

"Excellent staff and location for the price"
kimhG8437XF, 17 Octobre 2017

Excellent service with very thoughtful staff. Went out of way to help us get around the are, print boarding passes for air travel etc. Great food and easy location. Will stay there again when I am in the area.

"I wouldn't stay here again"
denisemS1694ON, 17 Octobre 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.

"Good 3 Star Hotel"
sethberry, 16 Octobre 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).

"One Night Stay before Cruise"
cec311, 09 Octobre 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, 03 Octobre 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.

"Great location and value...Ullia at the front desk ROCKS!!!"
GoBlueGregS, 27 Septembre 2017

I have stayed here a couple times when attending a conference down the road. My arrivals have been VERY EARLY in the morning and the staff has always done a great job taking care of my upon my early arrival and throughout the stay. Ullia, my front desk agent this trip was just super. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!

"Great motel near beach"
Dorothy A, 27 Septembre 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.

"What a great place !!!!"
Nancy C, 24 Septembre 2017

The hotel is clean and comfortable, nice walk to the beach. The breakfast is fantastic-everything you could want ! The best thing about the hotel is unquestionably the hotel staff. Front desk, Rita and Ullia and others, to Nick at the bar and all other staff. They were helpful and so very friendly. They definitely made our stay that much better. I highly recommend Best Western Oceanside Plus! I know I will be back!!!

"Great location, great price from Travelzoo"
Christine M, 23 Septembre 2017

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.

"Night Before Cruise"
Knowfere, 20 Septembre 2017

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.

"Great stay"
josef_r013, 13 Septembre 2017

What a great surprise this hotel was. Lovely pleasant staff, nice refurbished room, comfortable big beds, good American breakfast. Short walk to the beach, to the city. Recommend to use Uber or Lyft when transport needed, good value for money.

howardd182, 08 Septembre 2017

This hotel has a wonderful location , very friendly & knowledgeable staff. They go out of their way to make guest feel welcome & like family. The rooms are great & the food is excellent. Overall best value in Fort Lauderdale . This is the hotel that I will stay at on every visit here.

"Great Location and Friendly Staff"
Marion K, 07 Septembre 2017

Everyone was very welcoming and helpful throughout the stay. The breakfast was good and changed daily. The rooms are good and as in many hotels need a little more loving care by housekeeping staff to report bathroom repairs.

"Enjoyed staying at this hotel"
markkJ2393WD, 04 Septembre 2017

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. The hotel is also in a great location - only a two minute walk to the beach. The hotel has a parking garage with $15 per day fee.

"Great hotel!!!"
Rsolanet, 03 Septembre 2017

Great hotel! Perfect location! Friendly staff! Ullia Felicien, Richelle and Carolina Bello made their best to make us feel great! They were so friendly and nice! The hotel is a few yards from the beach. They lend you beach chairs and umbrella for free

"Dirty room, just disgusting"
Laura B, 03 Septembre 2017

Too much money for what was being offered. Hair all over the floor and bathtub. Location is good, just by the beach Breakfast ok, scrambled eggs very dry. All plates, cups and cutlery disposable. Would not recommend or return

"Beach and Apartment Search trip"
L5911XFsergiog, 02 Septembre 2017

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel, they didnt have direct beach access but were exactly a 2 minute walk from the beach. Rose at the bar and Ullia from the front desk made our stay even better. The overall service was great.

"perfect"
BJC828, 31 Août 2017

We always try to stay at this location because we can walk to just about everything and be safe. Love staying by the pool and the breakfast was awesome. Very nice people at the bar and front desk. I highly recommend this hotel, its walking distance to beach.

"Great value near the beach"
Q9581ABmargaretm, 31 Août 2017

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. And offer free beach chair and umbrella for guest use. The decor is a bit dated, but the overall experience was still excellent for the price. The staff was courteous and helpful.

"Awesome Staff members!"
bayg0at, 31 Août 2017

My husband has stayed in a lot of hotels and this one is by far the best under the circumstances we were one of the unfortunate ones that could not get back to Houston because of Hurricane Harvey and the staff here were unbelievable so accomodating, patient and I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Fort Lauderdale. Special Thanks to Rita Daniel and Ulia Felicien and all the other staff members names I did not get that were here during our stay.

"Short stay"
Rosalind W, 30 Août 2017

Would definitely recommend this hotel. Good location, on the seafront. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast has a large choice of hot and cold with choices of cereal, fruit breads and waffles. Pool gets the sun all day. Room was adequate and room service very good. The room had a fridge, microwave and a safe. Excellent value

"Best !!"
kevinK8293OW, 29 Août 2017

We loved our stay, the hotel is quiet and relaxing. Didn't get a chance to use the pool because of rain but otherwise we had an amazing experience. We've been staying at BW hotels since 2013!! Best ever.

"Still here and better than ever."
Kazmilk, 23 Août 2017

While I have stayed at this property many times in the past...........it always amazes me! The property has gone through a make over inside and out. From Ullia (front desk agent) till breakfast in the am by the pool (managed by Rose) this is one of the best kept secrets in Ft. Lauderdale. The on site bar and bistro are a great plus.

"Better than ok"
aprils22, 22 Août 2017

BWP is clean, a 2 minute walk to the beach, nice friendly staff, nice pool 8ft, nice lounge. The breakfast was pretty good with a nice amount of choices. I would recommend to anyone. I would most definitely stay again.

"Great value, great staff"
charlespF615RD, 21 Août 2017

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.

Gus S, 19 Août 2017

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!

"Great service , high quality and great value"

I recommend this hotel, excellent service, room veery clean and very quiet.The breakfeast is excellent and free, you have a great choice. It is very popular. The room are very quiet and very clean. The hotel is very close to the beach. I recommend the rooms located on the pool side.Overall the employees provided to us an great service, the room are very clean and the price is very competitive.

"Great Customer Service "
User, 15 Août 2017

Uilla felicien is one of the best front desk agent that I have ever met. She was very informative we needed to rent a car had no idea what to do, the other front desk agent said she was the right one for the job and she was we end up having an amazing day. She had great personality, made me and my buddy stay pleasant with every interactions and seem to know what she was talking about.

"Best hotel in fort lauderdale"
Waltbear5483, 13 Août 2017

Great location, awesome breakfast. No resort fees like the other hotels. Walking distance to all the restaurants and stores. The sun trolly drives in front of hotel so yo can just hop on pay a 1 dollar per person and ride to the galleria and go to publix to groceries or snacks.

"Rooms too small"
richardjE3163AD, 13 Août 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.

"Charming Hotel"
BEACH838, 11 Août 2017

I love the Chain of Best Western. Is my first time I stay at this hotel. All the decoration are gorgeous also the pool and pool deck. The staff very please and helpful and the breakfast delicious and plenty. The best is the security you feel save. I really recommend this hotel.

"Group stay"
Tiffany N, 09 Août 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.

"Nice Place, Clean Rooms"
Cassandra G, 07 Août 2017

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. There is a small restaurant downstairs and tables by the pool. The people were all very nice. We did have a delay in the elevator, but it was resolved within ten minutes.

"Perfect For Us"
dyer003, 07 Août 2017

The staff was amazing, the breakfast had something different everyday, and it was so clean! All of the staff was helpful and was always greeting us with hellos and smiles. This Best Western location is now one of my favorites and I only stay at Best Westerns.

"Courteous, Friendly Service"
Roland W, 06 Août 2017

Extremely modernized for an older beach hotel. Great location and within walking distance of beach and shops. Bed was super comfortable. Staff failed to mention charge for beach chairs & umbrella. Also not prepared to pay for parking.

"Excellent customer service"
Alicia P, 05 Août 2017

Great hotel for the price! Loved Rita at the front desk. She went out of her way to make our stay outstanding. Loved the 1 minute walk to the beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach park. Kids loved the pool.

"Good Beach Hotel"
angelapQ1576VD, 02 Août 2017

This hotel is walking distance to the beach and has a complementary breakfast. The staff was friendly and the rooms and lobby are clean. The pool looked nice, but between the weather and our plans we did not have time to use it.

"Tropical Paradise"
T5401MCjohnv, 01 Août 2017

Beautiful hotel and room. The Fort Lauderdale area has some much to offer. Beautiful beaches and wonderful places to dine. The views of the Atlantic ocean are spectacular. Excellent service from check in to check out. I miss being there already!

"Easy Checkin, Friendly Staff"
851virginiag, 31 Juillet 2017

We were attending Florida SuperCon 2017 and needed a room in which to dress before the normal check in time. The staff worked to get one ready so we could dress in our costumes and attend the event on time. Very pleased with the extra effort the staff went to in order to help.

"Perfect location and guest service"
Jennifer B, 23 Juillet 2017

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.

"Hotel near beach and walking distance of boardwalk"
Trips-nl, 22 Juillet 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 .

"Much Thanks"
occdarla, 22 Juillet 2017

Really enjoy this hotel. The staff are accommodating and kind. Ullia was very helpful getting my WiFi on my phone and we really enjoyed David the Bartender. He was fun to talk to and treated us well. We enjoyed the large free breakfast (lots of varieties) & loved our lunch. (Loved the coconut shrimp and mango sauce). the beautiful beach is so close, and plenty of restaurants to walk to. We are on vacation with 3 other couples, and definately will stay here again.

"Nice hHtel Great Staff"
I7263PWrobertl, 22 Juillet 2017

Hotel is excellently situated by the seafront. It has a very modern feel and has all amenities that would be required. However their key asset is the staff who were excellent. I travel a lot and the team at this hotel were a credit to all concerned. Highly recommended.

"close to the beach"
Fernando S, 19 Juillet 2017

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

"Excellent Hotel Accomodations"
mariadO7218VC, 19 Juillet 2017

Business travel for 6 days and 5 nights. Hotel room was clean, lobby and room nicely decorated, great breakfasts (except coffee) and very friendly staff. I will return next time I stay overnight in the area.

"Great location"
Susan K, 17 Juillet 2017

If you are heading to Ft. Lauderdale and want a great location to the beach, shopping, casino and family fun - the Best Western is a great place to stay. Friendly staff, easy check-in. Downside - not much parking - arrive early for a spot.

"BEST KEPT SECRET"

not on the beach but a block away, great breakfast and overall very nice hotel. Front desk was very nice and did everything they could to make our stay great. Wish it was on beach but everything else was wonderful.

"Not Good"
felicia j, 12 Juillet 2017

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.

"AMAZING!!! WE LOVE IT"

Nico, and Mike; the bartenders. And all of the house keepers!!! The view was purely beautiful, and the beach was very close. We love this hotel and have full intentions of coming back when we visit Fort Lauderdale again. Highly recommend!!!!

Dennis J, 06 Juillet 2017

Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was ready to help when we needed anything. We arrived in Ft Lauderdale around midnight and were greeted by a smiling face at the check-in desk when we got to the hotel. Check-in was quick and we were in our room in less than 10 minutes. In the morning we ventured off to the beach. It was a short walk to the beach from the hotel. Great experience. Would definitely stay here again.

"Pre-cruise stay"
PaulaLavocatCovial, 01 Juillet 2017

We stayed the night before leaving on a cruise for 8 days out of Port Everglades. The room was clean and pleasant. The breakfast was the usual hotel fare you'd find almost anywhere there's a free breakfast. My only concern is the elevator. There was only one elevator that I saw. It's absolutely awful when people are trying to leave in the morning for transportation to the port.

"Fort Lauderdale "
fastplayer37, 27 Juin 2017

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.

We are local residents that needed a place to stay for 2 nights while getting work done to our house. Beach is walking distance, parking is cheaper than surrounding hotels, and the breakfast buffet was great! Our bed was comfy, a/c was kicking, and our room was large with a balcony. Check in and check out was easy. Will definitely stay there again!!

"Third Time at the Best Western!"
Big Kahuna C, 22 Juin 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!!

"50/50"
jae0418, 14 Juin 2017

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!

"Big garden wedding"
jacy726, 14 Juin 2017

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.

"doable"
tdatiger, 13 Juin 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.

"clean less bed room"
Robert D, 12 Juin 2017

We have towel from other client guest room, because they don't change it. so I ask myself if the linen of the bed are change or not Went I go to an Hotel I expect the linen to be change and the towels. To figure that out when i want to use them.

"Great Quick Stay!"
SuenDon2, 08 Juin 2017

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.

David E, 05 Juin 2017

nice hotel but a bit too pricey for the rooms, worker are pleasant and did a great job, hotel just needs a little upgrade. rooms were comfy and the best feature was the HUGE SHOWER, Best shower I have ever seen in a hotel.Hotel employees were truly friendly and the Bartender Nico was TOP NOTCH.

Wonderful place to stay. Great value nice little perks. Best breakfast included with day I've had. Staff was very personable. If you're afraid you won't make the check in time they will accommodate. Plenty close to the beach.

"Wow! great hotel"
Mary Kay L, 30 Mai 2017

We stayed on the sun deck. It felt like we had our on patio. The hotel was lovely, breakfast was great.We had dinner one night in the restaurant, very nice. The shuttle and bus to the mall was easy to use.

"Great little hotel"
staceys454, 29 Mai 2017

This was our fourth stay at the Best Western Plus Oceanside. The hotel is small and not pretentious. It fits our personality and lifestyle perfectly. Has everything we need, and the location is great, 100 steps from the ocean, at the far end of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

"Average Hotel"

"Pre cruise Stay"
Victoria L, 26 Mai 2017

This was a very nice place to stay. We had a poolside room and it was very comfortable. A little small but comfy. It is two min walk to the beach. Also a diner for dinner and drinks. Couldn't ask for more. We will definitely stay here again!

"Loved it!"
Nicoleshelonne, 22 Mai 2017

We stayed two nights prior to our cruise and loved every minute of it. Everyone at the desk was awesome. They made us feel like family. We were given lawn chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Breakfast was really good. I will definitely stay there again

"Great place to stay for business or pleasure!"
Riverchick70, 22 Mai 2017

This was my third stay at this property in the first year and a half. Excellent location with easy walk to beach, great amenities and friendly employees. Be sure to check out the Happy Hour in the lounge from 4-7. Nico at the bar is super friendly and always remembers me despite trips being several months apart!

"welcome home"
darren41, 21 Mai 2017

Well where can i start, been coming to this hotel for 5 years running had to cancel last year at the last min cause the pool was not ready, which wasn't a prob,but returned this year been coming to fort lauderdale for the last past 27 years now so i hope i know what im talking about, so here i go, fanstatic front desk, very friendley one girl named Ullia was super, but all were really helpful, rooms are lovely tv fridge, micowave safe the lot,dont know what people moan about the rooms for, we found them lovely, very clean hotel the people behind the scences work so hard,Now the bar looks great plenty of room comfortable, but no body goes in there stayed for 14 night didnt see a soul in there, why you ask?? the prices are toooo high and i mean to much ,The pool, what a way to relax clean tidy plenty of beds, shower etc.. but the pool is way to warm, cant cool down in that pool, so allways went to beach, maybe thats why bar is empty ,people dont stay round pool,location is second to none, beach 2 mins walk away, lovely walk along sea front to all the resturants and bars,Now the only thing that went wroung with our stay and i mean nearly spoilt our stay, we had late fight back home at 10.30 pm, had to get out of our room by 11 am, but want going to sit around for hours so made the most of our last day, we asked the front desk if they could keep our cases , no prob there, but asked about a room so we could change and had shower after a long hot day in the sun, answer was NO, the manager was really quite sharp with us, she was the only one in the whole 2 weeks we stayed that wasnt very pleasant maybe we caught her on bad day who knows, she said pay another 80 dollars can you can have a room,lol well not going to answer that, but overall its didnt spoil our stay and would come back in a hearbeat so thanks everone at the best western for a great time,

"Quite Satisfied"
858seang, 17 Mai 2017

My family has visited this hotel on Mothers day weekend for several years. The staff is friendly, and the hotel has undergone a couple of nice renovations. It close to the beach which is what we love most. We really enjoy coming back each year.

"Great vacation"
Julia22bos, 17 Mai 2017

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone from the chambermaids to the handimen, to the front desk, to the dining room/bar were super friendly and helpful. The free breakfast buffet was terrific. Nice poo;, three computers in the lobby for guest use. Food and drink in bar were delicious.

"Disappointed "
Sarah C, 16 Mai 2017

We have visited this hotel a number of times from England and on this occasion have been here for 14nights we have received outstanding service every day but tomorrow due to a late flight we will be showering at the pool due to there being no courtesy shower facilities #disappointing won't be returning for this reason shame!

"Flight cancellation"
Tom B, 16 Mai 2017

Right next to a country concert. No bother from other guests and noise. Clean with a great location very near the ocean. We got a reservation in spite of the high demand due to the concert. Front desk were helpful calling us a cab when requested long after check-out.

"Enjoyed our stay"
rosaria g, 16 Mai 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.

"This is the best place to stay For short.Or long stays been coming here for 4 years now and planning more as I speak the"
anthonyrL1012EM, 11 Mai 2017

This hotel Is the best place on the beach to be they are friendly courteous Service They are right there if you have any problems But being there myself for 4 years in a row I experienced No problems I would recommend this property an excellent excellent Place to stay

"Lovely hotel"
Kelly T, 10 Mai 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.

B4501NFjamesc, 08 Mai 2017

Marie and Ullia were great, because of them we will come back.There were many examples of them going above and beyond one was when we asked to be closer to the pool the changed our room with out any hassle and we're always smiling and helpful.

"GREAT HOTEL"
Celia S, 08 Mai 2017

This hotel was extremely clean, corteous service, hot breakfast and variety was excellent, great location to the beach and staff... amazing! Will definitely come back! Price needs to be revised, slighty high for the appearance and actual services provided.

"Amazing Hidden Gem!"
Shoeaddictmary, 04 Mai 2017

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!

"great stay!"
H4067RNstevens, 04 Mai 2017

excellent location, great breakfast, and clean hotel. staff helpful and tried to please. non best western shuttle service available but not very motivated. during a heavy rainstorm the driver did not feel like taking my family and me to a mall and quoted an extremely high rate. cabs were cheaper and faster. cudos to bartending staff who made smoothies for my kids (who are hard to please.

"Family getaway"
teresaj310, 01 Mai 2017

Loved my stay this is our 4th time here. Will come again!! Just watch for the charge for the bottled water in the room. I thought it was complimentary. Get Motown music. Easy access to the beach. Enjoyed the stay!

"Great value !!!"
614yvonb, 01 Mai 2017

At a fraction of the price charged by other chains... Excellent service, amenities, and great location (100 meters from the beach) !!! Ocean view not existent, but balcony over swimming pool more than compensates.

"Friendly Staff"
Chuck Z, 30 Avril 2017

We were down on vacation and we're well pleased with our visit. The front desk was fantastic. Rooms were clean. Nice hot free breakfast. The pool was great also. The location was centrally located. Close to the beach, docks, jungle queen, and shopping. Couldn't ask for much more. I would go there again.

"2 night stay after cruise"
bbjo2017, 27 Avril 2017

Very nice motel with very friendly staff with Ullia, Nigher and pool . We were able to walk to beach and other eating establishments for a good variety of food. We enjoyed sitting by the pool late nights playing cards and able to unwind after a 10 day cruise.

"Stayed before our cruise"
Rita C, 26 Avril 2017

We stayed here overnight prior to our cruise. We were part of a group, so it was pre-planned for us. We were very pleased with our room. Very clean, up to date and quiet. The complimentary breakfast was o.k. Nothing particularly stands out in recalling it, but convenient!

"Perfect Location and great breakfast!"
Lisa D, 26 Avril 2017

Nice, clean hotel with comfortable pillows to sleep on and a great balcony that overlooks the city. Less than five minute walk to the beautiful beach and marina where you can take the water taxi and explore the best parts of Ft.Lauderdale. Breakfast was free every morning with lots to choose from, hot and ready by 7am. We stayed for two nights and will definitely stay here again.

"Ok weekend stay"
Brenda Mike D, 25 Avril 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.

"Post cruise stay."
Darwin783, 24 Avril 2017

Checked in on a very rainy Sunday after our cruise. Staff was very pleasant and held our luggage till our room was ready. Once we checked in, rooms were very nice. Balcony was a plus! 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, the rest is standard"
Germanrib, 20 Avril 2017

Very well located hotel. 2 Minutes walk to the public beach. Very effective check in. Own garage at 15USD per day. No other parking close by. Rooms standard BW and not very well cleaned. Breakfast more than sufficient. Towels and beach chairs free.

"Book it"
Joshua O, 17 Avril 2017

Reasonable price/lower than the competitors at the time and near the beach. Staff was great. Checkin was quick. Room was clean and comfortable. I'd stay here again. The restaurant had good food options.

"Awesome Breakfast"
crabb, 17 Avril 2017

We will definitely stay at this hotel again...It was clean, quiet, pool was great, breakfast was awesome, staff very friendly and helpful. This is close to everything you want, the beach , shopping, eats, the marina, sun trolley...it was great.

"Great place/excellent location"
747rhondar, 17 Avril 2017

Everything was clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Staff was very friendly. The location is by the beach and boardwalk. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of options (hot and cold). We will definitely stay here again.

"spring break in Ft. Lauderdale"
Daniela B, 16 Avril 2017

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!

"GREAT Place To Stay Pre or Post Cruise!"
greg v, 13 Avril 2017

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.

"Great Service"
kathleensQ3850YC, 13 Avril 2017

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!

"To Be Honest"
_megheadjames, 12 Avril 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!!

"Amazing loved miss Ullia at the front desk"
F7759DCdavidf, 11 Avril 2017

I loved how we were welcomed by miss Ullia Felicien ,have been in the service industry for 25 years plus she is wonderful and a asset to your business, Thank her again for us .The Spanish women in the breakfast section was great and the Latin man at the bar a great experience over all Thank you best western for making our first anniversary a great and pleasant experience.

"Great hotel right on beach!!"
X2021FJmarkb, 11 Avril 2017

Great price and great accommodations. Fitness center, sun deck, pool, bar, restaurant, breakfast and right on the main strip. Can't go wrong!! I definitely plan on returning next year for Tortuga!! Thanks!!

"Good but misleading! "
Jami L, 10 Avril 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.

"Great hotel"
rhondaf258, 08 Avril 2017

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.

"Great stay"
Reader0108598, 29 Novembre 2016

Staff very nice,room very nice,stay excellent! I liked the the room we were in,love the balcony. I thought the breakfast was better than our last stay. Lots to choose from all fresh and hot. Over all we were very happy with our stay.

"Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn, Ft. Lauderdale"
Faith Z, 28 Novembre 2016

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.

"Warning!!"
johnfgwright, 24 Novembre 2016

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, 23 Novembre 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!

"Perfect hotel before cruise from Port Everglades"
Pet73, 15 Novembre 2016

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.

"OK for a night before/after cruise"
pilonfx, 14 Novembre 2016

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.

"Great Pre and post Cruise hotel!"
l0isbt, 12 Novembre 2016

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.

"One night stay before a cruise"
canalwen, 08 Novembre 2016

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.

""BEST" KEPT SECRET ON THE BEACH"
Jared C, 07 Novembre 2016

The "Best" kept secret on Ft Lauderdale beach. If you have never stayed here before you should. All the amenities at half the price. Covered parking, free breakfast bar. Walking distance to everything on the beach.

"Gem for Cruise stay"
Lois Beamish T, 02 Novembre 2016

Great hotel, comfy beds and pillows, knowledgable desk staff. $20 taxi ride from FLL airport. $7.00 shuttle to pier. On site dining menu worth checking out for dinner and lunch. Onsite breakfast extremely complete, clean and tasty. Short walk to beach and wonderful park area. Free shuttle to local shopping right out front. Wish we had found this gem years ago!

"Close to the beach hotel"
Diane W, 30 Octobre 2016

Great location with easy walk to the beach. Our room had a patio with view of the street. Excellent breakfast options that include all types of food choices. Have stayed here before, and will come back again.

"Don't Judge a Book by its Cover"
EdWhitby8981, 26 Octobre 2016

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!!

"great location"
KAREN s, 24 Octobre 2016

stayed here 1 night before a cruise. great location next to the beach but not an ocean view. close to restaurants and bars. Would stay here again. Just what I expected from a Great Western Plus. worth the $125.00 I paid through trip advisor.

"A great place to stay"
EasyEdChicago, 24 Octobre 2016

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. .

"The small things in life are still missing here"
Annika E, 22 Octobre 2016

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.

"Post Cruise Stay"
garysgorman, 20 Octobre 2016

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.)

"Parking, Breakfast, GR8. Many baths and views Not."
coumaris, 20 Octobre 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.

"Pre cruise"
notmetoo, 19 Octobre 2016

Excellent location stay Prior to cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. The hotel is very clean but dated, well maintained. Nice bar/lounge. The complimentary breakfast was very plentiful. Staff was great. The hotel is clean. Easy access to the beach or for a nice walk. We obtained excellent one night price for three couples.

"Great pre and post cruise Hotel"
Gotpride, 17 Octobre 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!

"small hotel,very good atmosphere"
Ina R, 14 Octobre 2016

It has great jacuzzi suite,very customer service,good location,near interesting places,the beach is very close.It should have a shuttle from the airport.to the hotel.The rest must have more variety in their menu..

"Great value, but a little off the beach"
MotorBikeDude73, 14 Octobre 2016

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). The rooms had a fair amount of space, and traveling with four kids that was a real nice benefit. You really can't go wrong for beach vacation on a budget.

"Fabulous!"
Sandra Drover K, 10 Octobre 2016

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

"Amazing value, high quality hotel"
Keith J, 09 Octobre 2016

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

"good place to sleep close to the beach"
Christopher H, 07 Octobre 2016

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.

"Great Hotel. Excellent Service."
TheTravelGuy69, 06 Octobre 2016

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.

"Comfortable place, short walk to the beach"
iKiev, 03 Octobre 2016

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.

"Top Hotel close to the beach"
LISA C, 03 Octobre 2016

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.

"business stay"
Richelle D, 02 Octobre 2016

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

"Little gem. "
haradagal, 01 Octobre 2016

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.

"Cute little local place. . Older. .but not so stuffy as bigger hotels! "
Lisa O, 29 Septembre 2016

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 !

"Dang nice"
JimBgoodman, 29 Septembre 2016

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, 21 Septembre 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 was awesome the entire time. We stayed 2 days before our cruise. I had 26 in our group and everybody loved it. Rose, the bartender was so much fun and she makes the best drinks. She is full of knowledge for anything you need in FLL. You will fall in love with Rose and want to steal her to work PR for your company ONE OF THE BEST PARTS: John the chef over heard me talking at the bar about how hard it was going to be for me getting reservations for 26 on a Saturday night. He suggested he would take care of my entire group and do a VIP party with all kinds of food and save everybody the 2 hour wait we were looking at. Well he knocked it out of the park. BEST COCONUT SHRIMP ever. Sliders, meatballs, etc. Balloons VIP sign..The works. Thank you John One more person I would like to acknowledge Maria the head of housekeeping. She and her girls were so nice, and as soon as we left the room they were on it and was very sweet. The main reason I'm writing this is to say the entire staff was so nice. They cared about everything we needed. They got us picked up at the airport. Got us shuttle buses to get around town and every time we walked past the front desk they would ask if we needed anything. I will send ALL my clients that need a hotel in FLL to the Best Western Plus Oceanside for as long as we own a travel agency. Thank you so much Jillian, Rose, John, Maria and the entire staff for all your extra efforts to kick our cruise vacation off with a bang!!! Satellite Travel Jamie Eubanks

"Great place to stay"
tmw24, 21 Septembre 2016

This hotel is a great location in Ft. Lauderdale. It is about a half block (if that) from the beach. There was limited parking available on the property and sometimes parking was a hassle, but otherwise the place was great. The breakfast was awesome for a hotel in a beach town. The hotel had beach towels for use also. Staff was friendly and willing to help.

"Great Place & Clean"
Joseph C, 19 Septembre 2016

Fourth time we have stayed here and will come again. Nicely located a slight walk to the main beach area. Breakfast buffet is very nice serving basics with a good variety. Nice pool and great bar. Rooms are nice and clean. Beach is located a short few minutes walk behind the hotel.

"great place"
bangfabrication, 19 Septembre 2016

nice, older hotel but clean and close to the beach. not very far from airport or cruise terminal, we stayed there overnight before a cruise we went on, we were able to hit the beach that evening which was nice. didnt really like that i had to pay for parking though

"Clean and good breakfast but don't use bar/restaurant "
Julianne S, 18 Septembre 2016

Our room was very clean and the main desk and housekeeping safe were very friendly. The breakfast was one of the best I've had a hotel. The location is just a few steps from the beach and we had a conference at the Marriott and there is a light path walkway to the Marriott right across the street from the entrance. We attempted to get service from the bar two nights in a row. They have reasonable prices on the menu. The first night the bar tender was rude (older late 50s male) as well as the cook for they ignored us and when we had to interrupt to get attention from their non work related non customer related conversation to ask to see the menu we were treated with an unpleasant interaction so we left. We decided we would give him a second chance the next night and we let him know we would like to order and would be sitting at the tables on the pool deck. We waited 20 minutes and he still didn't come take a drink order. So one in our party went in to let him know we were ready to order. We waited another 15 minutes and then left. We walked to a restaurant down the street and quickly spent over $100 that they had just lost out on in food and drink orders. This bartender needs to be fired or you will have no business. The other place we went to greeted us immediately and we had drinks in hand in less then five minutes.

"A small hidden Gem"
Lisa D, 18 Septembre 2016

I must say I was very nicely surprised with my stay at this hotel. The staff was super friendly, the rooms were spotless and the breakfast buffet was a great way to start my day! This Hotel is tucked in between some very fancy high rise hotels. But don't that fool you. This hotel was equally as nice as those big conglomerates for half the price! I would definitely recommend giving this hotel a try.

"Business trip"
Jim R, 10 Septembre 2016

Spent two nights at the Best Western Plus, Oceanside Inn. My room was on the 5th floor overlooking the pool - 2 queen beds. The room was small but adequate. The AC was awesome, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was up-to-date and spotless. Breakfast was very good....eggs, ham, chicken sausage, breads, make your own waffle, fruit, veggies, sliced meats, etc. Coffee was good. Leila does a great job there. Hotel was quiet.....several foreign visitors. Parking was easy ($15 / day). Best value on Ft. Lauderdale beach.

"Great Stay!"
Frederick B, 10 Septembre 2016

Nice hotel, very friendly, helpful, informative staff. Great breakfast selection and good food. Hotel is a little back from the beach but within walking distance. Only issue was the noisy in-room a/c unit which was bothersome when trying to sleep.

"Very good"
needmorevacationdayz, 06 Septembre 2016

Great stay. Not the easiest place to get into; the entryway was too small. Parking was a bit of a pain, and costs $15. Ugh. But once you're inside, nice! The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly. Everything at this hotel seemed new/updated. We had a quiet room on the 4th floor. The linens and bed were good. The bathroom was small but it was all updated. The shower was fine though not the best water pressure. Nice toiletries, thick towels. I didn't like the toilet paper right up against the wall. The colorful furniture in the hotel and the room was cool, beachy and seemed new. Kudos to housekeeping, everything was very clean. Not many channels on TV. We enjoyed our coffee out on the peaceful balcony. Breakfast was delish. We got a great rate here and would definitely stay again when we're in the area.

"Nice"
Paula L, 03 Septembre 2016

Really nice hotel. Looks like it has just been updated and it's really nice and it's really close to the beach. It's just about 50 yards away, we had a good time in the ocean and at the pool. We ate at the restaurant at the hotel and it has really good food. The service was excellent the waitress that helped us (Rose) was really nice and so helpful when we asked questions about the area. The hotel staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here especially before a cruise. That's what we did. If we come back to this area we will be staying here. We also got free breakfast and it was really good also.

"Best kept Secret on FTL Beach"
Duffy D, 01 Septembre 2016

This is the place to stay on FTL beach. Great Value. Amazing amenities. Nice Breakfast. New Lounge. Fitness Center. Have been staying here for years and the the Remodel is amazing! Very comfortable rooms and well designed. Staff is awesome too!

"Convenient location"
Vall590, 29 Août 2016

Our room was located on the level that has the big sundeck, lovely! Breakfast was quite ok. We didn't use the pool but it seemed to be very popular. The room had a microwave and a refrigerator so it was very easy to make som pop corn or something else and have a glass of cold wine. It is a short walk to the beach and you can easily take long walks. On the con side: there's not much more in the immediate environment but the beach and other hotels. Of course there are some restaurants and so on but not much, so it depends on your needs if you will like the location or not. The staff were friendly.

"Cost a little more BUT LOT's better than choice hotels in the area"
rla1947, 27 Août 2016

This was a really nice property. Rooms were small but were clean and neat. I like the fact that most of the flooring is ceramic tile and just a little carpet as the carpet NEVER gets cleaned. Room was right next to the pool which was GREAT and located close to the in-house bar/restaurant and breakfast area. Hotel has a GREAT breakfast area with a really good selection of food items. Was about the same price as the Choice Hotels in the area and I have had nothing but BAD experience with choice hotels (various locations) recently. Will definitely stay at this property next time I am in the area.

"great value hotel"
Sumeyra A, 25 Août 2016

Breakfast was very good, they vary the options daily. Fresh fruits, waffle makers, egg and cheese options. Very clean. Also just 2 blocks away from beautiful beach. The pool was small, but we did not need it, as the beach was very beautiful and very close. I highly recommend

"Great deal, we'll definitely return!"
Kristin L, 24 Août 2016

Although we usually go to South Beach, my sister and I decided to make this year's beach trip somewhere a little different. We chose the Best Western Oceanside Inn because of it's proximity to the beach (about a 2 minute walk) and reasonable price ($125/night!). We definitely got more than our money's worth here! The entire hotel was bright, clean and updated. Our room was comfortable and had a nice sized balcony, with what will eventually be a nice view (the hotel next door is being renovated). The breakfast boasted an impressive selection of food and drinks and since the room included a microwave and fridge, we were able to take a little extra for snacks. We especially enjoyed the pool and upstairs lounge area, as well as the bar, which is adjacent to the pool. The staff were all pleasant and helpful throughout our three night stay. We will definitely return!

"Outstanding"
Sue W, 24 Août 2016

I loved the décor and the pool, the outstanding front desk staff. The location to Hollywood beach was great as well. We will stay here again. As a Canadian I am always looking for a great value for our dollar. Job well done!

"Great room and price point!"
Yanny N, 20 Août 2016

I stayed here four days during the third week in August. The room was first level, pool side, and only 1/2 block from the beach. The room had two queen size beds, mini fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. It was clean and tidy. House staff, wait staff, and front desk were all very friendly and accommodating. I was not aware of the daily parking fee until I arrived. I wish this information would be more predominant during the booking process. Also, parking spots are tiny, I suggest using a compact car. The buffet continental breakfast was amazing. It had pastries, fresh fruits, eggs, meats, waffle station, and a daily changing menu. It was included with the rental which made this a great value. I will book again.

"Good location for beach"
deeter123, 19 Août 2016

Hotel was nice, good pool but warm. Beach was a easy walk from hotel. Bring a volley ball as there are public net's right when you walk on the beach. Life guard stand was there also. Free refills at hotel bar for soda but kids can not sit at the bar.

"Best Western in Fort Laudardale"
Risa S, 19 Août 2016

Great Hotel! Comfortable room. Comfortable bed and good bathroom. Close to the beach. Delicious breakfast. There is a receptionist called Cassandra that is really nice. She has lots of tips to offer the guest who hasn't rent a car. If you ask her how to go to lots of places, she'll teach you with a nice smile on her face. My husband and I went to lots of places by bus or metro spending almost nothing because she taught us how the bus, trolley and metro service works.

"Great BW with fabulous staff"
Lamar02, 17 Août 2016

This BW is on the south side of Fort Lauderdale beach area just below the Beach Park. Close but slightly away for the mad tourist area. It is not beach front but has a well maintain pool(smaller to average sized) and is approx 5 min safe walk to the beach. Being a BW "frequent flyer" our parking charge was deferred. I like being acknowledged as a return customer and they did not disappoint here. This is an older building/motel style BUT is very fresh and well kept. Perfectly clean and open. Staff needs commended. Our room was on the second floor-sundeck level. The front door opens from inside the building but there is a sliding patio door onto the sundeck with several nice chairs, tables and umbrellas. This deck overlooks the pool below. Elevators or stairs accomodate the levels--parking is directly below the facility and the elevator goes to this level. There are 2 washer and dryers there for customers to use. The room was very comfortable; slept well. Great bedding with a very clean but smaller Bathroom. Hot water was no trouble. Refrig, microwave and safe in the room. Breakfast is included and is sufficient. Good choices and dining room was well kept. There is a small bar area in the lobby area with TVs and they serve food there. Fairly good menu-not expansive but Chef John and bartender/server Nico did a great job. The food was excellently. Hamberger was great-loved the steak potato fries. Fish and chips great too. Average Full Bar available. The area: Its an easy walk to the main strip prob 10min. The wide side walk on the ocean side of Seabreeze blvd or A1A is really wide and has been very well kept for several years. Lots of people out walking, jogging and riding bikes(there is a bike lane). It is approx 3 mile stretch to walk the south to north of the Fort Lauderdale beach stretch before you get more into the Lauderdale by the Sea Region. Several Life Guard towers along this stretch. The sand was much cleaner and more white the more north of the main tourist area I thought. Was NOT bothered by street venders at all here. Several typical Souvenier shops on the hotel side of the street. Tons of restaurants-naturally I use TA to help with choices. There are several all along this stretch of varying price ranges. LuLu's which is close to the southern aspect of the beach was a good restaurant-not great. Great bar drinks and some specials. Our couple meals were ok, hit or miss. Great views for the patio though overlooking the beach--do put your name in and wait the time to sit out here. Ceiling fans help keep it cooler plus the sea breeze is fabulously relaxing. Can never miss going to Primanti Brothers for breakfast or lunch sandwiches/pizza FABULOUS place Home cooked and great family style foods. This BW is a great base. Park and walk everywhere from here!

"Great choice, 5 minutes walk to the beach"
Lubiere, 14 Août 2016

Booked on BW site for 112$ AAA rate in June 2016. Arrived late so room was ready. As I have a diamond status, I think they bumped me to a beautiful 1 bedroom suite on the pool level. The décor was pure Florida tropical, clearly renovated recently, nice king bed, and TV in room, large bathroom with separate tub and shower, living room with sofa and TV, good wifi, plenty of channels. The pool was nice and cool, they have a little gym on premise with a few cardio machines and weights. The breakfast was excellent, above par for a BW, with various breads, sausage, scrambled, cold cuts, fresh fruits, cheeses, with a latino flair. The area was also clean and renovated, with a Cuban matriarch overseeing the area, very friendly. Parking is 15$ a night, I think, but it was also waived given my status...I should go to BW more often. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk, so you can basically walk in your bathing suit, towel and flip flops, and enjoy the beautiful beach. I recommend this place.

"Good location "
shannona26, 14 Août 2016

Walking distance to the beach! In a busy nice area. I think it's wrong to charge $15 to park, but it seems to be a normal fee at hotels. The rooms seemed clean. I did not enjoy the smell coming from the room ac.. Smells like they spray a scented cleaner in them. Only I seemed to notice as this didn't bother my husband or kids. The rest of the hotel is way too cold. It seems to be a normal thing for businesses but it makes coming inside a shock. The pool was great! Breakfast had a variety and was one of the nicest I've seen at a Best Western! I believe the plates they use are a compostable type. Wouldn't in be great if they tried composting!? There are recycling bins in the rooms that we found useful. I could only hope all hotels offered these in all parts of the hotel. This was a plus for me! All in all it was in a good location close to everything we planned to do. The construction was going on when we stayed and it didn't bother us or appear to bother anyone else.

"One Night Stay"
richardwV2937BG, 12 Août 2016

Hotel was very clean, check in and check out was very quick. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Comp Breakfast was good. Very close to beaches and attractions. Pool area was nice. Would definitely stay there again.

"best breakfast ever"
IlTanoTano, 11 Août 2016

really nice hotel, good smell all over, nice breakfast, best breakfast ever, walking distance to the beach, nice area to walk, heated pool open till 11:00 PM, nice people, Nico the bar`s guy, really nice, houskeepers, the best

"Cant beat it!!!!!!!!"
David D, 09 Août 2016

I have not been on vacation in a number of years and finally decided to go and use points for a stay. I chose this Best Western location and could not have been anymore pleased. Even though the room was free with points I got the treatment of a guests paying the highest dollar amount they had. The Staff was AMAZING.

"Great location for beach access"
Jennifer G, 07 Août 2016

The best thing about this hotel is the closeness to the beach- it really is less than a 2 minute walk, It might actually be closer to the beach than B Ocean Hotel right next door, you don't have to pay a "resort fee", and parking is $15 instead of $30. And, the BW hotel does provide beach towels and bikes, but you have to know to ask for them (we didn't figure that out until the last day). So I guess the signage could be a little better. The outside is a little underwhelming, but inside is a solid Best Western hotel. The housekeeping staff were really good about working around our crazy napping/sleeping schedule.

"Hotel is a hidden gem!"
steve d, 05 Août 2016

We booked this hotel for a Wednesday and Thursday night in July for $135 a night. Super great price for hotel. We could have got newer chain hotels over the bridge in town actually cheaper, but wanted to be near the beach. We knew it wasn't on the beach but nearby...and that's what it is. It's NOT that far to walk to the Ft Lauderdale state beach. Plus, you can pretty much walk and catch the trolley to most everything near by for a $1 a person. We walked through and past the state park/beach area twice to eat at Bubba Gumps and Jimmy Johns and to look at the shops there The breakfast buffet is by far the best I've ever had at a hotel. We would have spent $40/$50 for the 4 of us to eat at a restaurant for sure...and it was really, really good. Very clean, well stocked, fresh, and lots of choices. Kudos to the breakfast ladies! Our room was 2 double beds on 4th floor overlooking the hotel next door that was being renovated, but seriously, that was fine with us. Great price for a hotel room....didn't expect a view or would have paid more if I wanted one. Bathroom was a little small, but that's not something that would bother us either way. The room itself was a nice size. My kids enjoyed the pool a lot....and they are 12 and 18. The pool is way nicer than the pictures would make you think. There are 2 fountains running that cover the noise from street outside...so you really don't notice the semi-busy street. You're kind of nestled by the high rises/condos around you which is kind of neat. Plus they give you pool towels that you can also take to the ocean, and they don't make you have to swipe your card or check them out, etc. I appreciated that perk. The ladies at the front desk were very nice and professional. There was one younger gentleman who worked an afternoon shift who was standoffish and lacked a personality....but the ladies were so professional that I guess he could be overlooked. The bar food was affordable and pretty tasty. Their was a younger female bar tender who worked an afternoon/evening shift who was by far the most organized bar tender/pizza cooker/waitress that I may have ever seen. There was a middle aged bar tender for the second afternoon who was standoffish and frankly rude...and his conversation with what looked like the chef who came to talk to him, well they were totally unprofessional. We didn't have a car but did notice the dust blowing off the building next door onto the parking garage seemed to make several people at hotel quite mad. Also When leaving on last day I called twice for a Broward County taxi to get us....we were going to the the Miami cruise port....and when we had waited for about 40 minutes in the lobby, a lady from the front desk came over and after realizing what we were doing, got us a Broward taxi in about 3 minutes! Should have asked the ladies at front desk first! Overall, the 3 above-mentioned unprofessional employees/staff would be the only thing that would keep this hotel from a 5 star rating. The wifi never seemed to work for us, but that wasn't that super important to us anyway. I would definitely bring my family to stay here again. This is a great value for the area.

"excellent place to stay and enjoy your vacation time"

"Great Hotel for a Great price"
Louis Q, 02 Août 2016

I enjoyed the pool and design of the hotel. The bathroom showers were very big and overall the room very comfortable. I recommend anyone who is coming to Fort Lauderdale to use this hotel. It is very cozy.

"great place and location"
captmark12, 01 Août 2016

we have stayed here twice both on semi vacation and family business. Staff is always very helpful form the girls at the desk and the maids. Breakfast is always good, a very short walk to the beach and many great restaurants. What we love is we park the car and short walk to the beach and many restaurants

"2nd stay - enjoyed it even more"
Poodle90, 30 Juillet 2016

I enjoyed myself last year at this hotel and decided to stay again. Was not disappointed. Again, it's not a fancy hotel, but who goes to the beach to stay in the hotel? It's clean and affordable! There is a pool and the menu at the restaurant has been upgraded. Free breakfast is decent. Happy hour is pretty good as well. 5 minute walk to beach. This is officially my new Ft. Lauderdale hotel and I used to stay at the Westin!

"Great"
Lourinho J, 27 Juillet 2016

Great hotel.. Very nice and clean. I recommend it.. maybe next year again.. Bus #40 stopt right across the street to the Galeria mall or to Burger King. At the burger King take bus 1 breeze all to the Sawgrass mall. Simple as easy. .

"Awesome!"
Mary F, 26 Juillet 2016

An amazing stay! The fire pit was amazing as was the pool and hot tub. The staff was awesome, super helpful and well rounded.The rooms were well kept as were the facilities. I will definitely be back!

"Pre Cruise"
Pam V, 23 Juillet 2016

First room ac did not work. Requested to be moved and they did immediately. Second room mini fridge did not work. Since only 2 nite visit didn't bother. Hotel smells musty and not very clean. Lots of construction all around. If u want a cheaper hotel near beach this works. Some staff very friendly some not so much. Usual breakfast for this style hotel. Had a pool although we didn't use. There are no real views. Unless u request poolside which could be noisy. I probably would not choose this again.

"Not on the beach"
Ladd B, 18 Juillet 2016

There were not enough parking spaces - even though we paid for parking. The A/C in the rool was very loud. You can only obtain pool towels from the 2 very busy front desk staff. Even though this is considered "Oceanside", it is not on the ocean, nor can you even see the ocean from the hotel.

"Awesome Service Best Price"
Ilias D, 18 Juillet 2016

This hotel offers the best service with the best price by the beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL. There is NO other hotel that comes near in that price rate and service. Renovated rooms and walk to the beach. Staff are very helpful and the rooms are clean.

"Group Travel"
Boy Scouts G, 16 Juillet 2016

Very good hotel for group travel. Nice clean comfortable rooms, friendly front desk, helpful group reservations desk, affordable rates, full no-charge breakfast, close to public beach with life guards, close airport. All in all a perfect hotel for our group to spend a day or two at.

"Nice hotel not far from beach, jungle queen riverboat, and decent price for location."
TallTechGuy, 14 Juillet 2016

Friendly hotel staff and clean hotel. Quiet location on the beach since it is a mile or 2 away from where alot of the bulk of the hotels are. My stay was 7/6 and construction was going on, so I can see some negative reviews being posted by folks on the 1st floor due to the noise and their car being covered in dust and the hotel next door is doing construction too that starts at 8am. Basic breakfast is good enough (eggs, waffles, cereal, muffins, fruit, and juice) and is included. I wouldnt pay over $100 a night to stay here. Pros -My room was nice on 4th floor - 3 or 4 min walk to beach -5 min walk to jungle queen riverboat -Basic breakfast included and will hold you off until lunch -Nice pool area -Free airport transportation, even though I didnt use it Cons -Elevators can take a while and are hot -Construction at hotel next door starts bright and early -$16 a day for parking -between 2 hotels so not much of a view

"Functional"
Moira W, 14 Juillet 2016

The original room we were shown to had a first floor patio door opening out onto a bank of air conditioning units. We had booked a pool view room and if we walked to one edge of this area we could see the pool!! In fairness we asked for a change of room which they did and we had a balcony and pool view as we had booked. It is a fair walk into Fort Lauderdale but along the beachfront so plenty to watch as you amble along. Generous breakfast.

"Unauthorised Visa card use!!"
Owen L, 12 Juillet 2016

We visited and stayed here on the 2/7/2016 to the 9/7/2016. I booked through Amoma.com and can provide proof that I booked the above dates. The hotel claimed I was only booked in until the 7/7/2016 and I explained and showed them the booking from Amoma. They accepted it. I used my card for the parking charges at the hotel. We got home to Ireland on the 9/10th July after checking out the morning of the 9th from the hotel. My balance at check out was $0. I have the receipt to prove this. Today on the 12th July, 2-3 days after getting back to Ireland, Best Western Oceanside Inn charge my Visa debit card an additional $197, without my knowledge or permission. I never authorised this transaction and had already paid for the nights in question(as can be seen from the photo attached). Best Western Oceanside Inn have committed fraud and theft of close to $200 from my account. I rang to complain to be spoken to like a child by "Cathy" who neglected to acknowledge any wrong doing or apologise for the confusion. Just passed the buck and told me to contact a Janet Graham. I am shocked at how a hotel can charge you twice for a hotel room, one time after you have gone home. Will be returning to Fort Lauderdale but will never stay in this place again.

"Close to beach, restaurants/shops"
Michelle M, 12 Juillet 2016

Pros: clean room, nice balcony, excellent free breakfast, free parking, informative and friendly front desk staff, nice seating area around pool, extremely close to beach and restaurants/shops Needs Improvement: A/C set in hotel was extremely cold (effected temp. in rooms) Pool walls could use a deep cleaning/remodel

"Needs work"
Stanicus, 12 Juillet 2016

Pros for this hotel, Great breakfast, very close to the beach, bar and pool are nice. Cons for this hotel, Construction here and next door makes noise very early and covers car with crud. Not enough parking when hotel is full. AC barely worked. Internet barely works. Elevators are dangerous/broken with expired certificates. Very poor water pressure in shower and toilet.

"Treasure tucked into a tiny corner."
Victoria Z, 06 Juillet 2016

Wonderful wonderful wonderful. Clean clean clean. Nice nice nice. What an unexpected gem just steps from the beach. This is a resort quality facility at wonderful prices. Clearly the staff takes great pride in their jobs, the hotel and caring for guests. Seriously, this is a 100% winner.

"Excellent stay - Best Western / Oceanside Inn"
Vince P, 30 Juin 2016

Our experience overall was great. If your room is poolside, the noise from the hotel next door is loud. Jack-hammer, sawing, and wall-cutting noises fill the air. (the renovations are below the parking lot.) The noise starts some mornings at 9am and ends around 4pm. According to the staff, the renovations are seasonal. (off-season will be the noisiest) The renovated lobby looks excellent. The staff is very affable, helpful, and friendly. Other then the hotel pool, another water option is the beach which is a short 1 block walk away. The hotel provides towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. The parking is $15/day, which is reasonable considering all reputable hotels in the area charge for parking. Other hotels do not offer complimentary buffet breakfast, so this is a nice tradeoff. In closing, this is the second time staying in the Best Western/Seabreeze/Ft. Lauderdale, I rate this hotel a 10.

"Best Western - 2nd time!"
Big Kahuna C, 29 Juin 2016

This is the second time that we have stayed here. The property has changed for the good since we were here last year! The new colors and furniture have really given the Best Western an updated and tropical feel. We were happy to arrive and find our room ready. We were in the king suite and would book this room again! It includes 2 rooms,2 tv's and a whirlpool bath - which was very relaxing!! The service was satisfactory, no problems. The staff was friendly and helpful. The heated pool was great for kids and adults and was often pretty empty. We loved the breakfast choices - fruit,meats,waffles, etc. The location of the hotel is great! It only takes a few minutes to walk to the beach, about 10 minutes to walk into town and is only a 10 - 15 minute taxi ride to/from the airport. Remember you will be in southern Florida - pack sunscreen and bug spray (although we didn't see any mosquitoes). We also took the Sun Trolley ($1) into town, went to the Publix store and purchased snacks and a large umbrella that we used at the beach daily. Would we come back? Yes!!

"Comfortable hotel in a beautiful location"
Gilb6108, 25 Juin 2016

Hotel seems a bit old, but has been well maintained and was really an exceptional value. Not on the beach, but very close to the public beach area. Staff are great, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was the expected, and always good. The guys in the bar were always responsive and helpful. The room decor was great, and the bathroom with 6 shower heads was fantastic.

"Great Stay for your money"
Tareika G, 21 Juin 2016

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was awesome! It's very close the beach and you can literally walk to the beach from the hotel. I will definitely be coming back.

"Worth the Cost"
Steve H, 18 Juin 2016

Excellent location near the beach. Hotel was average but was well kept with friendly staff. I would stay here again if I am in the Ft. Lauderdale area. It is very close to many restaurants, shops and activities such as day trips for fishing, snorkeling and diving..

"Great place & Staff"
captmark12, 18 Juin 2016

I was here for family business and wanted a place close to the beach without paying a fortune. When I arrived and was checking the young lady Christina was trying to set me up with what I reserved but my mind was else where, I got to my room and I flipped I thought I reserved poolside, I called down and was on the phone with a gentleman (Rafeal) and he said we do have 1 poolside but you are right on the pool and its a smaller room, I opted to stay where I was. Well a little while later Christina called and apologized she thought our room would be better. Its grea to see staff go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied

"So friendly"
Leslie L, 17 Juin 2016

After a missed flight home and 26+ hour without sleep, the lovely ladies the morning of June 15th, 2016 were a blessing! They were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They rushed the cleaning of a room so my kids could finally sleep. After such a bad experience at the airport we felt well cared for at Best Western Ft. Lauderdale and will return to this very friendly place. Thank you all again!!!

"Great location in Fort Lauderdale"
colinwY9034NI, 15 Juin 2016

This Best Western hotel is just around the corner from the beach, a 1 minute walk to the foreshore and restaurants and bars. We chose to eat at the hotel bar and found the snack meals to be very enjoyable (Nachos & vegetarian burger). Our bed was super comfortable and all staff were very professional and friendly, especially Nico behind the bar. The breakfast room was great, very well set out, the best that we have been in.

"could be better"
Katiana R, 15 Juin 2016

the room it self was great check in was not a great experience . the check in time nedds to be eariler and the check out needs to be a little later. The front desk person was rude and had no care in the world.

"Love it!"
Gabriela V, 14 Juin 2016

It was one of the best hotels I've been in. Even though it's small, it's very cosy and comfortable. Pool, breakfast, internet, room... everything was on point. The only thing I had a problem with was the parking. I understand the parking lot is under construction but when I came back from a night out there was not parking available and it's $15.95 per night. But overall, I loved it.

"Overall a Solid Stay"
jshwin85, 11 Juin 2016

My best friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (6/7-6/9) and we had an overall good experience. We both took early fights and got in well before check in time. We stopped by the hotel to see if our room was ready and it was not. Totally okay; the very polite employee working the front desk gave us a parking pass if we wanted to park and walk around while we waited for our room to be ready. The hotel has been recently renovated: the building has changed colors, the shared balconies have become private, the lobby and breakfast area totally redone, and the guest rooms have been refreshed. It has really helped make the whole property look more modern and clean. Pretty much the entire hotel has been renovated from the ground up. The only downside to all this renovating is there was still some construction going on and you could hear it starting at 9am. Also the hotel behind is going through a major overhaul so, until that is complete, would highly recommend staying on the side of the hotel facing the pool. Our guestroom was very comfortable and clean. We were on the second floor and, instead of a private balcony, these rooms open on to a shared sundeck that overlooks the pool area. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom adequate, if a bit on the smaller side but they make good use of the space. The pool area looked very clean although we did not use it. The beach is about a two minute walk from the hotel. The only downside we found was in order to get to the beach we had to walk past a lot of construction, a very smelly dumpster, and quite a bit of standing water. However the benefits of not having to cross the very busy road outweigh the less than "scenic" walk and this is not the hotels fault. The hotel is also located in a great location close to everything yet tucked in the quieter corner of the beach. Very easy access to the airport, downtown Fort Lauderdale, major roads, restaurants, shops, and the cruise terminal. The breakfast was very good for complimentary and was well stocked and clean. The employees were also very friendly as they were throughout the entire property; many friendly faces and hello's as you walked around. Overall would definitely recommend staying here to anyone especially if you are on a budget. Even though the hotel is not technically oceanfront the price is a bargain compared to the rest of the hotels in the area.

"Good Value Hotel"
Michael M, 09 Juin 2016

Nice hotel with helpful staff. The only negative we found was that we were in a room with an adjoining door to another room where there was a baby crying through the night. That happens, and we weren't saying in a $500/night room at the Hilton, so we were happy to put up with the noise for the two nights before those people checked out. We did wonder though if there should be some form of sound insulation with interconnecting rooms like that. All in all though we enjoyed our time there, and we will certainly stay there next time we're in Ft Lauderdale.

"Great hotel with a great location"
Karin B, 06 Juin 2016

Me and my family just love the Oceanside Inn. The location by the beach and walking distance to the restaurants is great. We have stayed here four times and this summer will be our fifth stay at the hotel.

"perfect!"
Amanda C, 06 Juin 2016

My mom and I stayed here for a quick trip to Ft Lauderdale the weekend before memorial day. The free breakfast helped us save money having one less meal to figure out every day, it was walking distance from the beach, and a little bit further of a walk to restaurants other than the few immediately near by. The pool was wonderful, plenty of lounge chairs especially on the second level of the outdoor area and the staff was soooo helpful, kind, and polite. They even had some beach chairs we could borrow for the beach from past guests who bought chairs and didnt want to travel home with them. The room was exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable. Not only would I recommend staying here, I personally plan to be back. Worth every penny.

"Even better than I had remembered....."
RickW512, 03 Juin 2016

For reasons I cannot imagine, I have not been here in over fifteen years. It was my place to go several times a year, and now I see what I have been missing. I was only there for a short two day stay, but was more than impressed. The place is unrecognizable from the old days....and looks as if it has just had a complete remodel. From the lobby to the rooms, everything was clean, new, and beautiful. There was a great full breakfast that came with my room, and all the help was the best. I was so great to still see a few of the old crew!!! Rose is still doing a wonderful job in food and beverage....Maria still running a top notch housekeeping staff...and even one of the maintenance managers was still there....it was like old home week!!! You will not be disappointed with a visit to this hotel....for two days, or two weeks..

"good location for pre cruise stay"
Julie B, 03 Juin 2016

close to beach and restaurants, good place to enjoy the night before a cruise, easy transportation to the cruise port, great breakfast, helpful accomendating staff, clean room with everything needed, only concern was very slow elevator that did not work correctly

"Nice Stay"
NYTravelAgent, 01 Juin 2016

I stayed here before a cruise with my 12 year old grandson. The room was very comfortable, the beach was only a few hundred feet behind us and there were a lot of restaurants within walking distance. My grandson loved the pool and the bar there has a small grill menu which was just fine for us....and good Bloody Mary's! The breakfast in the morning was very nice with several hot and cold selections and someone always being attentive to cleaning and guest needs. I'd definitely stay here again.

"Post cruise stay"
Kerfoot9, 01 Juin 2016

This was a 3 day extension of our cruise. Wanted to see the sights of Ft.Lauderdale, this Bestwestern was the best, staff, front desk extremely helpful everyone very friendly, rooms nice size and clean. Lovely pool, breakfast is included and it was awesome, lots of choice, nice seating area. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

"Quiet"
Nicholas R, 31 Mai 2016

Quietest nights sleep ever in a hotel. At check in switched our room from one next to elevator to a middle of the hallway with no argument from desk clerk. Comfortable, quiet, clean, great hot breakfast included. Short, easy walk to great beach. Lots of great restaurants further walk North. Restaurants were a bit expensive.

"Always love my stays here!"
Lindsey G, 30 Mai 2016

This is the second time that we have chosen to stay at this hotel prior to our cruise. We really enjoy the pool, the breakfast and the close proximity to the beach. There are added touches to this hotel that makes it stand out from the others. For example, they have pool noodles and balls that my 9 yr old daughter loves to play with. Also, they offer complimentary beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to use at the beach. The breakfast is the best that we have had at any hotel. They have recently remodeled the lobby area and revamped the menu options available at the bar/restaurant.

"excellent"
Tracy P, 30 Mai 2016

This was a beautiful hotel. Very clean and the room was better then i expected. Everyone was very helpful and the place was very clean. I look forward to visiting next year. We really enjoyed the free breakfast that was offered.

"I LOVE it here!"
Jlc143, 26 Mai 2016

I've been the the Best Western Oceanside a handful of times and I will continue to go back! We just recently visited good ol' Fort Lauderdale for a girls weekend and this was my first choice of hotel! It was recently renovated and now has a full kitchen so everything you need is in one place! The complimentary breakfast is a plus and they never hesitate to hold your bags if you have a late flight or early arrival! The staff is friendly, helpful, courteous, and treat you like family! They seem to have been there for a long time and remember you even if its been a while! Sarah and Rose are the best bartenders! Love those ladies! Keep up the good work and see you next year!

"Great place to stay"
chefdawna, 25 Mai 2016

The room was exactly as pictured on the internet. The bathroom was awesome. A full walk in shower with rain shower head with led lights! Coconut lime verbena soap and shower products. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet had a make your own waffle station. The staff was helpful. The location is great right off the beach and ocean by about 1 block.

"Great location for price."
Anthony A, 20 Mai 2016

This small hotel is nestled among the giant Condos and Hotels right on the beautiful Ft. Lauderdale beach. Walking distance to the site of the Las Olas Beach/Park. Personally, I have never been to such a beautiful beach. Ft. Lauderdale is developed around it. This hotel must have been part of earlier development. The size gives it away. Recent renovation makes it quite comfortable, yet very affordable.

"Price and location"
Shauna B, 20 Mai 2016

A short walk to the beach. Good eats are within walking distance. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean, and quiet. This was just an overnight stop for us. We found the accommodations pleasant and started the day well rested.

"Best service and calm"
hape123, 17 Mai 2016

The hotel had a homely feel and the staff were friendly. We had a pool-side room on the third floor which was comfortable and clean. The location of the Best Western was great for the beach and some local restaurant good atmosph.

"Best customer service"
sharonboudreau40, 16 Mai 2016

Awesome hotel , called once we were in the room from the front desk to make sure that everything was ok , awesome food , awesome pool , great room, very comphy bed , excellent breakfast as well and also great coffee

"awesome hotel"
David B, 16 Mai 2016

great food, clean rooms, excellent place to stay, service was great they were very friendly great food, and coffee awesome pool beach only a block away , lots of shopping close by, and restaurants, and a great boat port to see all kinds of ships, and only a few miles fro the port for the cruise ships..

"Pre-Cruise Stay"
tris10London, 16 Mai 2016

The hotel had a homely feel and the staff were friendly. We had a pool-side room on the ground floor which was comfortable and clean. The coffee in the room was very good and location of the Best Western was great for the beach and some local restaurants. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. Easy access via cab to Port Everglades for the embarkation for the cruise.

"Favorite hotel"
geraldn76, 15 Mai 2016

Back here for the third year in a row now,and I still think it's a great place to stay. Location,staff,breakfast all excellent, Especially enjoyed the lounge each night before retiring.All the bartenders were great.Nico,Sarah,and Tom thanks for making me feel at home.Here you can meet people from all over the world,it's a lot of fun. From here you have great access up and down rt.95 to some great places within 30 to 40 min.

"Gem Discovered"
Pamela W, 13 Mai 2016

I booked this hotel based on the Best Western brand, other reviews and because it is within walking distance to the beach. I was pleased to discover upon arrival that this BW is small, boutique-like with a small number of extremely friendly family like staff, All whom we encountered were friendly and extremely accommodating and provided excellent customer service- which is what keeps me as a loyal customer. Special thanks to the front lobby staff- Theresa- front end manager, Rafael, Kasandhra and Sirena; to Michael- chief engineer and security, Nico and Tom- bar cocktail technicians. I did have one issue with a hotel staff person, which I did not plan to mention. I do so only because Theresa, front desk manager responded and resolved the issue IMMEDIATELY and the staffer apologized to us personally. Thank you BW Oceanside, FT Lauderdale Florida. We will return, hopefully, annually. Blessings.

"Best Western Oceanside"
Ron K, 09 Mai 2016

This is a great value hotel in a great location. It's a real oasis among all the big commercial hotels on the beach. Beach access is great and within walking distance to all the A1A bars, restaurants and shops. The staff is great and accommodating and the facility is clean and updated.

"Great Location"
Bulldog1982, 08 Mai 2016

I have been staying at the Best Western Oceanside for years and would not consider staying anywhere else when I travel to the Fort Lauderdale area. It is convenient to the airport, restaurants, the beach, and the businesses that I visit. Carolina Bello and her staff are the best.

"What a FANTASTIC little place!"
sarahleebone, 07 Mai 2016

We booked a suite as I knew the location was great for the suites. They walk out to the pool. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we parked it outside by the pool and grabed a few cocktail from the bar and enjoyed the Florida sun until our room was ready. Great room, quite spacious. Nice big bathroom as well. Not a lot around this hotel though, which I knew, but booked it as the price was right! Breakfast was great for an included breakfast. Fruit, eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles....your typical fare but nice that it was not just a continental breakfast. Not exactly beach front but you can access the beach quite easily. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

"our getaway"
Frank P, 06 Mai 2016

Even with all the construction going on our stay was still very enjoyable. The front desk staff the bar staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great with a large assortment of items and again a very friendly staff to help you out. Our room was very comfortable. We could not give this place anything less then EXCELLENT.

"Nice hotel, good value"
G379HRjohnn, 03 Mai 2016

Hotel is vey nice, great pool area as well. good value for the money. Location is very good in Ft Lauderdale. Also very close to the beach (which we didn't have time to use) The balcony above pool deck was a nice feature, very quiet and relaxing

"Great visit before cruise"
Douglas F, 03 Mai 2016

We recently stayed here for two nights before our cruise. We were very impressed with this hotel. Fantastic location. Close to water taxi; restaurants, shops and beach. We would strongly recommend the hotel to anyone staying in Fort Lauderdale.

"Comfy"
536marlenet, 02 Mai 2016

What a great stay..location was good..loved the balcony pool view. Breakfast good...still need to have turkey or beef products for people who don't eat pork...second stay so I really am comfortable in your hotels.

"Spring vacation"
Linda H, 01 Mai 2016

We stayed here 1 night at the beginning of our vacation and the last night also. Rooms are small. 1st night we had no view but that was OK. Breakfast was great, quite a few choices, both hot and cold. Staff was good at the front desk both nights.

"Late April Spring Vacation"
Keith G, 27 Avril 2016

Hotel was nice place to stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating. This hotel was priced right for the location being close to the beach and a short cab ride from the airport. I would stay at this hotel again. Plus the hotel is currently going through cosmetic upgrades that went practically un-noticed.

"Convenient for the beach (and cruise ships)"
ianjj, 26 Avril 2016

Stayed one night, two couples. We had a room on the second floor with a nice large patio out the sliding doors overlooking the pool. The other couple were across the hall in a similar room with a balcony overlooking the back of the hotel, their room was quieter than ours. The rooms had a coffee maker and a microwave oven and were clean and looked as if they'd been recently refurbished.The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful and a full breakfast and free wifi was included in the price. There was also a small exercise room with some basic equipment and a bar which also served snacks. Good location, three minutes walk to the beach and a sun trolley stop just outside, which takes you along the beachfront to the Galleria mall for $1 each way or $3 all day use. You can also download the sun trolley app and track the location of the trolleys in real time. Taxi from the airport was $20 including tip and about the same to the port if you're heading out on a cruise. I'd stay there again if the price was right, as I can't think of any downside.

"No view, but good location, pretty well kept up and good price"
DesertblondAZ, 25 Avril 2016

I did a lot of research before booking this hotel as I wanted something on the beach for the right price. We had room 320 which is two queen beds. There was a shower (no bath) with a rain head, regular head, and various body sprayers. The fan in our bathroom did not work, however. Since we only stayed one night I didn't request maintenance. Our hotel room had a microwave and small fridge. The beds are comfortable and the room was pretty clean. The hotel overall has a nice appeal to it with recent updates. While I'm not sure what the top level can see, it seems like none of the rooms have a view of the water and if they do, it's got to be very obstructed. The pool area is basic, but they do provide towels. As everyone has stated, the location is pretty great. It's a 3-5 minute walk to the beach which is also a park. There are palm trees, numerous picnic tables, and beach volleyball courts. We walked across the street to the Bahai Cabana restaurant for dinner which I recommend for a cheap bite or happy hour. See my review there. Additionally, there is also a full bar in the lobby that also offers sandwiches, hot dogs, snacks, etc. The breakfast was good and the dining area is very nice for a Best Western. Parking in their garage was $15 per day.

"Good and just ok"
ccunuk, 25 Avril 2016

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights following our cruise. We weren't ready to end our vacation. This place was very expensive for what you got. The room wasn't large but it was clean. There was a cafe/bar where you could get finger foods. It was a walk to any restaurant in the area and they were expensive. No fast food in the area. There was not direct access to the beach it was a walk also. The best thing about this place is, it had the best continental breakfast we have ever had.

"Pain in the neck survey"
Janet S, 24 Avril 2016

Room too small for 2 queen beds. Get a room with either a king bed or doubles. The survey is too long and annoying for something is voluntary. We wanted to get out of the room only to be told to use more words in this box!

"So So!"
John C, 18 Avril 2016

For the high price we paid, we ended up with a view of the wall of the hotel next door at the back of the hotel. Next time I will ask for confirmation of room location before booking the room. Overall, we got what we expected from the hotel chain.

"Best price and service great location"
lobster931, 14 Avril 2016

Hotel is in great location. Walking distance to beach, to water taxi, and to several bars and restaurants. The price is very good. Rooms were clean, breakfast was fresh .The Staff were all accommodating. They set up all our transfers, offered us a ride anywhere we wanted to go. I would stay here again.

"One night"
User, 13 Avril 2016

Great location, clean good breakfast at night some loud spring breakers but it was spring break time! Place nice for families. The rooms were roomy, clean and comfortable except for the sofa bed it was very bad as though springs were coming out of it. Room service attendants were very pleasant.

"Close to Ocean!"
Jennifer L, 09 Avril 2016

This is the 2nd time staying at BestWestern Oceanside Inn and was very happy again! You can walk to a great beach (behind hotel), free waffles for breakfast, visit a close hotel for their Starbucks, walk to a fabulous fish taco on the river and catch a water taxi to walk around for galleries, shops and ice cream! Comfortable bed with plenty of room. Small-sized and only partially updated bathroom, but friendlier on the wallet than surrounding hotels! Will plan on this hotel again!

"good place to stay"
ronu459, 09 Avril 2016

near ocean but no real view of beach.Fun location,near all the action on main strip for people watching, restaurants,beach type stores.On trolley routes(just $3.00 to ride all day on 2 routes( beach and historic downtown/Riverwalk).

"Here now at BW"
phil r, 09 Avril 2016

We are here now at the BW,our pre cruise hotel. It is pretty much as we expected based on reviews we have read. Pool area nice,drinks are good and not a long walk to the bar,people at the front desk very helpful,Rooms are ok,bed comfortable. Hotel is clean although still feels a little dated. Lots of construction around and noisy for the most part. They are setting up on the beach for a large C&W event so a mile of the beach is closed off. Although we are ok with this hotel it is isolated a bit and is a long walk to most restaurants and bars. Just ok for pre-cruise.

"Nice Hotel"
Debbie M, 03 Avril 2016

Beautifully decorated and clean. Loved the breakfast also. This hotel is in a good location, close to restaurants, shopping. Short walk to the water taxi to enjoy the intercoastal waterway. The staff was very pleasant. Would definitely stay again.

"Great location, good property"
Russ C, 30 Mars 2016

We stayed at this property for a few days pre-cruise. Easy access from the airport and to the cruise terminal. Best to take the shuttle (at a fixed price) to the cruise terminal as traffic delays can easily run up the fare on a taxi. Room was spacious and well-appointed. The property was well-maintained and the staff people were great. We'll be back next time in Fort Lauderdale.

"A decent hotel spoiled by small details"
