"Rerfect 3 star hotel"

28/11/2018

We came to this area to see Willie Nelson in concert in Estero so we thought this would be a great opportunity to explore the area. We chose this hotel because of proximity of the causeway and beachfront location. The front desk staff were a pleasure; they were very friendly, efficient, and helpful. The rooms are all oceanfront, ours was on the 4th floor at one end of the building, very quiet with a nice view from our balcony which had 2 chairs. The room was decorated nicely with a king bed and kitchenette with granite counter, 2chairs, sink, cabinets with dishware, 2 burner stovetop, and full size refrigerator. The bathroom appeared newer and was as clean and functional as the rest of the room. The complimentary breakfast was much better than those usually offered with several hot items, fruit, breads, cereals and more. The staff were pleasant and made an effort to make certain everything was available. From the back of the hotel there was a lovely grass/garden area with Adirondack chairs spaced throughout and a pool. The beach was immediately beyond with chairs, umbrellas, jet skis, etc available for rental. The was abundant parking. The hotel was within walking distance to restaurants and shops. We also enjoyed Bowditch Point Park at the northernmost tip of the island. We had a great 3 nights here and would definitely stay again.

Great stay right on the beach. Short walk to restaurants. Small kitchenette with most everything you need. Pool, though lots of kids. Friendly. Great staff. Decent breakfast spoiled by paper plates. Go third floor or above for great views. If you can get for good price then go.

This hotel is easily located on the north side of Fort Myers Beach. In walking distance to restaurants and shops. Trolley pick up near hotel. The room was clean and beds comfortable with a view of the beach through palm trees. There is a comfortable lobby and garden area for lounging and breakfast. Friendly parrot too. Lots to do on the beach, walking, kayaks, Sea-Doos, shallow gulf waters. The garden areas have shuffle board, swings, pool... Would stay here again.

Excellent property right on the FM Beach, very well maintained and with a beautiful outdoor landscaping in the first floor right when you come in that is breath taking. All rooms face the ocean so it's worth to ask if the have a room in the upper floors to enhance your view. Breakfast it's really good to a morning start and some items vary daily. They have a coffee machine 24 hrs with latte and cappuccino options. Wifi was recently upgraded and it is the first time I see a hotel with wifi speeds above 50Mbps.... Lot of restaurants within walking distance so no need to move your car once checked-in. Staff is very friendly, always with a nice attitude and willing to make your stay memorable.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to compose such a great review.! We do our best to keep on top of our property, being right on the beach brings all kinds of challenges. Sounds like you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again soon.

Great location, within walkin distance of Fort Myers Centre / Beach / Pier. Lots of things things to do and see in the location. We asked for a higher floor and so we had a good view of the sea, this was accommodated. The beds and pillows will super comfortable. The towels were super soft and brilliant white. The body lotions etc smelt like lemons and were lush. The room was spotless and cleaned to a high standard every day. All staff we encountered were all friendly and polite. The hotel was a little pricier than some but we think it was well worth it and wouldn't hesitate staying again. TIP Ask for a higher floor and contact the hotel direct for a preferable rate.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review

Everything was excellent. Walk out of the hotel and right on the beach. Pool was better than the pics on the website. We would not even consider another place in Fort Myers afer staying at the Best Western. Breakfast was the best I have ever had at a hotel. Coffee, tea, and cappuccino free 24 hours/day. Location was perfect for walking the beach to restaurants and shopping. To me it was the perfect spot on the beach. Clean, quiet, and not as busy as other areas. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review an d for staying with us. You just explained the guest experience that we try to provide. Our location is perfect for walking to all the attractions however far enough away to still have a nice laid back relaxed atmosphere.

I stayed at this property November 3 - 5, 2018. This is a quaint, clean, updated property right on the beach. Every room has a balcony that faces the beach! It reminded me of a old time family hotel but with updated rooms and amenities. My room has two queen beds, large bathroom, and a kitchenette with cook top. Perfect for a few days at the beach. If you go, request a room on the 2nd floor or above for the best views of the water.

This was my second time at this hotel. It was even better this time because they managed to get our family in side by side rooms. We were on an upper floor and the view was the best. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great to not have to leave the hotel for a good breakfast. The beach is great. We got to see more of Fort Myers Beach this time because the Pirate Festival was not there this year. That was a good thing

Hotel is located directly by the beach. Distance to the pier is only a few hundred meters. The hotel has a heated pool which is great in the evening when it's getting dark at the beach. Room were big and clean. We also had a balcony facing the beach. Breakfast is included, as well as parking. And finally they have a parrot which was great fun for my daughter.

Great place and amazing views! We were exhausted coming in from the Key West Express and just ready to get some rest. Staff was great at check in. Breakfast was amazing and a walk on the beach in the am was refreshing. Beds are small and there is really not enough seating for breakfast.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review

We stayed at this resort 9/23 for 3 nights. This visit made it our 3rd year staying here and this resort is awesome in our eyes!! We almost didn't stay here due to the news reports of red tide, but the beach, and the gulf water were PERFECT! You will find clean, comfortable rooms here and the views of the beach and gulf from the beachfront balconies are amazing! Even sitting by the pool, you have incredible views. The location of Best Western is also convienent to restaurants and shops all within walking distance from the resort. And, last but not least is the staff, which are always pleasant and helpful. You all make this resort worth coming back to. See you guys next year!

"oceanfront view"

24/09/2018

This hotel was a remarkable find! I couldn't believe that all rooms face the ocean (they do!) and for the price we paid off season it was such a great deal. I would definitely recommend 2nd floor or higher for the best view. They have Adirondack chairs scattered on their property facing the ocean, as well as some picnic tables and two little 'tiki-like' huts with 2 chairs and a table under them. There is a shuffle board court that you can use, and I'm pretty sure I saw a grill off to one side. The pool is good sized, with a mix of lounge chairs and tables and chairs. Good variety of breakfast items each morning, and the 24 hour coffee/espresso/cappuccino machine is a nice touch! Check in was smooth, staff was friendly. They have a pet parakeet (Coco) next to the front desk, and almost everyone stopped to talk to him. There are elevators, but there are outside corridors to your room. The rooms are spacious and contain a kitchen, which has dishes/glasses/utensils/coffee maker/kitchen sink/fridge and freezer/microwave, pots and storage containers. No dishwasher or garbage disposal. Two burner stove top. My only complaint was there should be paper towels in the room to use as napkins or to wipe up spills. Balcony had 2 chairs and a small table....you overlook palm trees and then the wide expanse of beach to the ocean. I've already decided that next time I'm in the area I'm staying here again! A well kept up property with good amenities. Friendly staff!

This Labor day weekend (2018) I took my father in law who suffered a stroke back 2013 has never been able to go to the beach, but with Best Western he was able to walk to down to the beach and enjoy...that brought me happiness....I can't express how happy my family was with this hotel and the staff.....it was a pleasure the two nights we stayed...quietness and the cleanness. At night just a few steps to the downtown area....no need to move your car...Loved Coco (parrot)!We loved the hotel we reserved for next year!

"GREAT PLACE - BEACHFRONT HOTEL !!!"

5
01/09/2018

It was my second staying at BWPBR in Fort Myers Beach; this time with my 2 teenage daughters. The hotel maintains its quality. The location is unbeatable and the rest is up to the weather and your initiative. I have expected, however, that at the end of August the prices would have been more reasonable. 4 nights for $1,105.56 - was simply too steep for the post-vacation period. Additionally "Red Tide" had affected many surrounding beaches and most of the tourists were not comfortable with swimming in the waters full of dead fish. This very problem has not been addressed properly when making reservations for staying at the hotel. What helped us, was the TRIPADVISOR website and opinions of tourists staying at Fort Myers Beach hotels in June, July & August 2018. The staff of the hotel was very professional on a daily basis and the hotel was clean and well maintained. I rate this hotel as a 3/4 star hotel and consequently expect that this would be reflected in their prices. There are many hotels (4 & 5 Star) on Florida's West Coast (including the Keys) with far better deals during the second part of August. It would be wise for BWPBR to re-think that price positioning for post-vacation period. Other than that - just pleasant memories.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. TripAdvisor is a great tool for us as well and we encourage our guest to use it when traveling anywhere. Hopefully the water improves, and it has, the water clarity is better, no smell, and no dead fish. We hope to see you again and thank you for staying with us.

I have only good things to say about our stay at the Best Western at Ft. Myers beach. Our room was clean as was the entire property. We walked to the restaurants and the pier, it was just a few blocks away. The beach was beautiful, and each day they had jet skis for rent as well as beach chairs and umbrellas. Great trip!

"Smallest hotel room ever!"

2
30/07/2018

The hotels rooms are very small. We could not even move with our luggage in there for 4 of us. Also, it is 2 double beds not queen, and there is still no room. Very old and dated. Most beach chairs are old wood and broken. He pool is tiny, nothing like the picture, 25 yards at best long and it was packed because there are thousands of dead fish on the beach from awful algae this season. So everyone is in the pool! Worst hotel I have stayed in on Fort Myers beach for the price. They allow dogs too so come 6am, get ready for the barking to begin. Breakfast was good and every room has a beach view for some positives but it does not make up for the room size.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Sorry for your experience, the dead fish are from Red Tide, naturally occurring and you never know when, it's been around us for a month but not on our beach until mid day Friday. Our standard rooms all have 2 double beds or 1 king as advertised. We do allow pets under 25lbs, if the pet was to disturb other guest we ask them to take care of there pet or check out, we did not have any complaints at the time you were here. On any given day the pool is quiet as most are on the beach.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was affordable priced even for a beach view. You're right on the beach so you don't have to drive or walk far to be in the beautiful soft sand. You even get your own private balcony. The pool is also fun there as well and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They have a bird named Coco and it spoke to me when I was saying “hello Coco”. They have free WiFi and breakfast (we woke up too late to partake in their breakfast). It's a great place to stay if you are in the area and want a view of the beach.

29/07/2018

I was disappointed in the overall stay of our visit. The size of the bed is suppose to be a double bed, but it seems much smaller. Also, the air conditioner was blowing right on your face while you slept. Very cold and hard to sleep!! We were also overcharged for the room itself when other customers paid $70 less a night!! I know the hotel can't controlled the red tide, but there were dead fish all over and floating next to you in the ocean. The crew cleaned it up as they could, but couldn't have been safe to swim in. No one at the hotel mentioned anything about this.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Please accept our sincere apologies for any problems or inconveniences you may have experienced during your stay with us. We do have larger rooms that are available, but our standard room does only have either 2 full size beds or 1 king bed. Our odd number rooms do have the air conditioner located at the bottom of the beds. We hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.

Just stayed here for 4 nights and it was great! The location is perfect, as you can walk to the Times Square area for shops and dinner. The beach was perfect, and pretty much private, as we stayed from Sat-Wed at the end of July. Breakfast was good, and different each day. Wifi was strong, even out on the beach!!!!

Convenient location, rooms were clean, great breakfast, lots items to choose from, something for everyone, internet worked great. Overall was a good experience, I would recommend and I would stay again. I'd say only downfall, no beach chairs, you have to rent them.

I really liked the resort, it was well maintained. It was close to everything, The breakfast was very good and the kitchen staff were awesome and went above to make sure you had everything you needed. My only complaint was I thought the room had a musty smell and I think the front desk could be alittle more friendly they didn't seem to acknowledge the guest when they walked by unless you spoke to them. I would stay here again

Without exception, from the spacious clean rooms to the excellent free breakfast to the meticulously maintained grounds, pool and beach, this resort hotel is the only choice when staying in Fort Myers Beach and it is reasonably priced for all the amenities offered. The hotel staff aims to please and all the workers employed there were friendly, courteous and helpful. We shall return again, like so many of the guests we spoke to have already done.

We stayed here wirh family of 4 for 4days. Clean, friendly, well-equiped rooms. Great breakfast with enough room for guests. Garden, playground and beach all over. Nice surroundinga and ocean view. And last but certainly not least: parrot Coco. By far the best hotel we have ever stayed.

This place was great the free breakfast the environment the beach the pool the convince that is walking distance to the pier and the town, perfect place to stay. The only thing that I would look into and call to confirm is the size of the beds some websites like Expedia advertise as queen beds and they where actually full-size beds. So I would call and confirm what ever room you getting, confirm through the hotel the size of the bed.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
I hope you plan to come back, we are replacing all the beds in mid August. As far as the sizes go 80% of our rooms have full size and the other 20 is a mix of kings and queens, sorry for the mix up on the web site, never surprised by Expedia. We hope to see you again. Thank you for staying with us.

"Summer vacation on the beach"

11/07/2018

Just returned from our 8 days at Best Western Plus Resort. Every room is oceanfront. They all have kitchenettes with 2 burner stovetop, full size refrigerator , dishes and pot and pans if you do want to cook anything. The hotel provides a full breakfast every morning till 10:30 am and I believe they have coffee available all day. The location of this hotel is great since it is just a little away from all of the crowded parts of the beach. The beach in front of this hotel is considered private. We were there for the 4th of July week so we were able to see the fireworks display from our balcony. There are many restaurants and bars within a short walk away. They do have a oceanfront pool also. They have a company on the beach in front of the hotel where you can rent chairs and umbrella's for the day, also they have skidoos, and parasailing. You can room charge these items. The staff at BW Plus Resort is outstanding they are always cleaning and helpful with any questions that you may have. If you book this hotel it is better to call them directly, you will get a better price and you will also be able to get all of your reward credits. We had a king size, but they also have 2 bedroom suites and also have 2 bedroom cottage next store to the hotel that you can rent. We will be returning to BW Plus resort . It was such a relaxing and enjoyable visit we will be back.

"Best Option on FMB for Travel w/ Pets"

08/07/2018

We were here for 2 nights over 4th of July weekend and were mostly satisfied with our stay - there were positives and negatives. The room was spacious and mostly clean when we arrived with the exception of stray hairs found in the shower and sand on the tile floor, but they did a good job cleaning up the sand when our room was serviced the next day. The water pressure and shower head in our room also weren't the greatest but the bathroom area was also spacious which was nice. We had a nice water view from our balcony that also overlooked the shuffleboard courts. Having the kitchen with refrigerator and the small cooktop was very convenient as we cooked in the room, not wanting to leave our dogs and fight holiday crowds in the restaurants. The beds were on the small side and not very comfortable, but they did the job for a short stay. The free breakfast was on par with others we've had - plenty of decent options as long as you know what to expect from a free hotel breakfast. Overall we left satisfied and I do believe that this is the best pet friendly hotel on FMB that gets you right on the sand.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review. We are getting all new beds in August and all new soft goods to freshen things up.

Great on the beach hotel with beautiful views from almost every room. Very close to the pier, BBQ picnic area, pool, shuffleboard area (we brought out corn hole too), and clean rooms with small kitchens. The front desk went beyond expectation, looking for an additional rooms for me at a very busy time, and the staff from breakfast to housekeeping were all very nice! We will absolutely be back and will recommend to others.

"Beware Parking"

1
03/07/2018

Nothing on TripAdvisor or the Hotels own website will tell you that a strict limit of one vehicle per room is required. THERE IS NO OTHER PARKING AVAILABLE WITHIN MILES OF THE HOTEL! They are completely unapologetic and have no refund policy for days not used even if you wanted to cancel. So if you know someone in the area and would like them to visit while you stay at this hotel, FORGET IT. We had two rooms booked so our grandchildren could stay with us. Coming from three different locations in nearby Florida. However, no options for the third car. Their suggestion? "Park at Walmart" nearly 4 miles off the beach! spending a few days here is close to the worst idea we ever had.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Not sure if you have us confused with another resort as our web site clearly states, "Free Parking (One automobile per room. No RVs)" and if someone wanted to check - out we would let them, if you booked through a 3rd party we have no flexibility.

"Can't wait to go back"

28/06/2018

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! We arrived on Fathers Day Sunday and originally planned to leave Wednesday. We enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed an extra night! Our room was just the right size for 2 adults and 2 kids (5and 8). The full size fridge a major plus, tile floors is awesome so we don't wake up congested. Every room is ocean front! House keeping did a great job everyday! The landscaping is beautiful and so well maintained! We saw employees every day keeping it manicured, even picking the weeds by hand! I told my wife it looked like Sandals in Jamaica or an all inclusive in Punta Cana! It's about .5 miles north of the pier and we would walk every day to the pier and the kids would collect sea shells. We would walk in front of the hotel to the pier at night for ice cream and the sights! We enjoyed Kilwin's ice cream, we were going to try Dairy Queen one night but it was filthy inside! Buffet breakfast was a major plus! A nice array of breakfast choices! And the staff was very attentive and friendly In the breakfast area as well as the whole resort. Every morning we set up a tent on the beach at the end of the rental chairs because we didn't want to be rude and block anyone's view. And we would alternate between beach and pool all day! The bbq was amazing very clean and spacious! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we reserved our room for next year! My only complaint was the price increase for next year! Hahaha! Oh well.

"Stayed with small dog"

21/06/2018

Lovely well-maintained facility that has a very permissive policy for Pets and charge is only an additional $20 per night for dogs under 25 pounds which ours was. The kitchenette rooms are just fine. Breakfast is included in the room rate. And is more than adequate. The pool is well heated and the hotel is directly on the beach with direct access. Staff was pleasant and cooperative. There is adequate parking which is a big plus in this area that has so little. Would stay here again. We used AAA and received a $20 discount off the room rate This is not a luxury five star hotel but it's perfectly fine and we look forward to returning again. The room and the rates are certainly better than the kitchy little hotels and motels all around the Fort Myers Beach area. There's a 7-Eleven about a block away which makes things a lot easier too

There is nothing but good to say about the hotel and our stay! We had the BEST room( in my opinion ) 5th floor corner room. This was our first time and will not be the last...room was clean as was the whole place. The breakfast was great and each day the girls working it took a personal interest in everyone...they were great!!! Front desk staff were just as friendly even the "cleanup guys" took the time to greet us. I wanted to stay in a place that was on the beach and I was not disappointed ...! Easy to walk to the restaurants and there are plenty to chose from. Looking forward to returning!!! Soon.

11/06/2018

We haven't even left yet but this place is beyond what I expected. For a few years my boyfriend and I have been wanting to travel to fort Myers beach. Every time I did research this hotel would pop up so I knew I had to check it out! We arrived Saturday morning after a very early flight from Boston and our room was ready for early check-in. I was disappointed because we were given a room on the first floor, I literally had been dreaming about sitting on the balcony. The girls at the front desk were more than helpful, we told them we were upset so they moved us to the second floor. This meant we no longer had a king bed, but I didn't even care! The rooms are absolutely spotless from the clean balcony to literally the bathroom floor. The staff is so friendly and we LOVE coco! We are already sad about leaving in a few days but know we will be back! We just love this place. It's so quite yet not far from restaurants and bars. Being from Boston we don't have sunsets on the beach and these are literally to die for and leave me speechless. We can't wait to come back!!!

Such a great location. Every room has a beach view. Walking distance to so many great restaurants. Staff, especially Rich was so helpful and friendly. Even the maintenance crew greets you when you walk by. Room was clean, had a great view from the 3rd floor and a full size refrigerator which was a pleasant surprise. We ate at Matanzas on the Bay and SOB's. Both were very good. There is a grill onsite, next time we will bring food to grill. There is not a grocery store close by FYI. There is a 7-11 convenience store very close. The included breakfast was good, plenty of choices including eggs and waffles, fruit, etc. Probably the only downside was the double beds. Wish all the rooms had queens-seems like only the suites do, which are almost double the price. The beds were small but comfortable, pillows good also. Free parking close to the rooms. Outside entry rooms but felt very safe for the duration of our stay. Will visit again.

27/05/2018

This is a no frills place--clean, but not plush. All rooms have gulf view balconies. The kitchen has a refrigerator and stove, but no dishwasher. We loved the balcony--even with our partial view of the gulf. The grounds are immaculate, and there are beach chairs with umbrellas, gas grills, and games. The lobby is very attractive. There is a full hot breakfast, but not nearly enough space to accommodate all of the guests. There is some outside seating, and we found space at a lobby table. The staff is very helpful--recommended delivery options for take-out food. It's an easy drive onto Sanibel and Captiva Islands and Fort Myers. We would definitely stay here again.

"Suite not so Sweet (Unless you love looking at a cement wall)"

18/05/2018

Never had a single. problem with Best Western Europe ... But Best Western USA, NOT SO ... Months prior to this reservation in Florida a specific suite was requested. Once there we were directed to another suite which turned out to be facing a four foot concrete pool wall. If one moved to the very corner of the window, one could catch a view of the Gulf of Mexico (if you strained your neck a bit). It wasn't until the 5th day were we moved to another Suite on the 5th floor for the remaining two days. We were informed by more than one of the staff ... "The good suites are always saved for the Florida residents and the one like you got goes to the 'snowbirds'." Delightful. Wear a pair of white socks and walk the floors of your suite, then look at the bottoms of the socks. You will be appalled. The maid service in both suites need to tend to the mildew in the shower on the floor and walls, and the floors throughout. Will we reserve again at this location? Only if all other hotels on the planet earth close down. As stated ... I've never had a problem with BW in Europe, EVER. But BW USA ... as they say in NYC. "Forget about it".

Joy, Rich & Scott go out of their way to make us feel welcomed & tend to our every need & question. The breakfasts are beyond delicious with a variety of foods like a buffet. Our room has a gorgeous balcony & privacy galore as one can never hear your neighbor. We always enjoy the low key atmosphere with the beach so close and restaurants nearby.

01/05/2018

First time to Fort Myers Beach and we absolutely loved it! The pristine white sandy beaches are like powdered sugar. The gulf waters are the perfect temperature. And the abundance of palm trees made it feel as though you were on some tropical island. What a place! The resort was very clean and well kept. Every morning the staff was out cleaning the grounds from any fallen leaves or branches, and prepping the pool area. Plenty of things to do.....the beach, pool, shuffleboard, etc....or just relaxing in one of the big chairs under the palms. A little bit of heaven! Daily breakfast was included and pretty good, for buffet style food. While it gets very busy around the food in the morning, there's an abundance of places to sit outside. Not sure what they do if it's raining.....guess you can take your food to your room. The rooms are all spacious and clean. The closets are small, but decent sized chest of drawers. Kitchenette is fully stocked with a large refrigerator. Strong WiFi signal. The staff was mostly friendly and helpful....but needed a little coaxing at times. Always pleasant if you spoke to them first, but didn't necessarily go out of their way to ask how they could help make your stay more enjoyable. Guess that's just something I look for. Had a couple of occasions when we needed help from maintenance and they couldn't have been nicer. Took care of issues immediately and always with a smile. The only real issue we had was when we checked in. We were put in room #501, a beautiful room with a sweeping view from the balcony. We dropped a few of our things off on the bed and went out for dinner, thinking we'd bring our bags up later. When we returned to our room our key didn't work. Not sure who was more surprised, us to see someone else open the door or the people inside wondering who was trying to get in! They saw the things on the bed and thought housekeeping hadn't cleaned up all the way, so threw it in the garbage. When we went down to the front desk, the clerk was very apologetic, but said we would have to move. (Not sure why, since we were the first ones in the room, but we were tired and just wanted a room.) She did say that the folks in #501 were only there for 1 night and we could possibly move the next day. But she didn't have the authority to promise that and we'd have to work it out in the morning. Our next room was #402. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful view was completely obstructed by a palm tree. Figured we were only in the room for 1 night, so no problem. The next morning the front desk called to tell us we'd be moving into #501. Asked us to stay nearby so we could move when it was ready. When they called and said the room was ready, they had problems making the change in the computer. She said she couldn't move us because it was a king bed and we signed up for two doubles. Told her the king was fine, but she couldn't do it. At this point of frustration, I asked if we could just move away from the palm tree. So she moved us down 3 rooms to #405. It has a beautiful view (not as nice as #501) and worked fine. Warning: the rooms that end in #05 & #06 are next to the elevators. In the quiet of the morning and evening, you do hear them running. They're a bit loud. All told, we still look forward to returning for a future visit someday.

Impressed by how staff and management interact with guests. Every encounter is positive, they will do what it takes to please. Impressively clean grounds and rooms. I would rate it a three star easily. Only down side is the small and overcrowded breakfast area.

My daughter, husband, and I stayed at the Best Western and loved it. I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff was amazing and very friendly. The hotel was extremely clean especially with all the sand that gets tracked in from the beach. The we're cleaning it all the time. The breakfast while not elaborate had everything you could want and adds to the value of the stay. The view is amazing. We did the dolphin tour and loved that also. Chair rental is a little steep so I would purchase cheap chairs for the beach if you are staying a week

The location of this hotel is perfect. Oceanfront private beach with chair/umbrella rentals. Short walk to bars, restaurants and shopping. Clean rooms with oceanfront balconies. Kitchenette in the room and great breakfast served in the lobby area. All of the staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are very well taken care of too. We hope to be back and enjoy this place again.

We stayed here for two nights during March of 2017. Clean comfortable oceanfront room on second floor. Not much of a view of the ocean from there. You need to be up on the third floor at least. Long wait at the elevator but overall we liked it.

This hotel was a great find for a last minute trip during spring break. Location is great, staff is very friendly and helpful. What makes this place even better is their cleaning staff. When at the beach you track sand everywhere! They kept the room very clean, even arranged my girls toys and pillows. I'd recommend to anyone wanting to stay on Ft. Meyers beach.

We stayed for a few days at the beginning of April. It is a very clean hotel and we would stay again. Everyone on the staff was friendly and courteous to us. There is a free breakfast that we enjoyed each morning. It was a good variety and we enjoyed it. We had a one king bed room with a sliding door to a balcony that opened to the ocean. Beautiful views and a few steps to the beach. There is a stove top and refrigerator in the room. The bathroom and room was clean which is important for a vacation. You want to stay in a hotel like this one. It's also easy to walk to the restaurants or you can catch the trolley or tram right outside of the hotel.

We came down to escape the snow for a long weekend. I couldn't have been happier. The staff is so friendly. The hotel is right on the beach. We got umbrellas and chairs each morning and charged them to the room. My husband was happy because they had coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day. I liked the “fruity” water. The free breakfast each morning had a nice selection of hot and cold items. The rooms were immaculate. We will definitely be coming back.

Great location w beautiful beach that was not mobbed like the areas closer to the square& pier ! Hotel new & sparkling clean! Housekeeping & breakfast staff super polite and helpful. Nice touch w newspapers available free of charge... and ice water in the Lobby. Request rooms on 4-5 th floor - we are strictly beach people who never stepped near the pool. Grounds are very well kept //pristine . Breakfast was traditional continental free breakfast as in most chain hotels. Except/—Delicious fresh grapefruit halves available which were delicious!! Crowded most of time but we brought our food to eat in our rooms. ???? One major concern wrt future reservations- I wish they would allow guests reserve a specific room - or even floor. That is a drawback in my eyes. I dreaded the thought of getting 1st or even 2nd floor rooms - especially if overlooking pool.... We were on 3rd floor- palm trees obstruct ocean view a bit —- but patios are nice. We walked everywhere for dinner & 7-11 close for other items. Car ride to grocery store -??about 3 -4 (?) miles that can be tricky& time consuming w traffic - go early in AM !!

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for staying with us. We would have to have 75 different room types in order to offer a specific room number and floor.

Not a frequent best western user but this location was very nice and perfect beachfront location. All rooms face the beach and have small balconies (Good for 2 people) to enjoy the great sunsets. Nice courtyard and pool area. Beach is wide and kept nice; bring your own chair - all chairs and umbrellas on beach are for hire - can be up to $40 for a day. Breakfast area was not large but flowed well and ability to go outside to eat helps. Easy 5 minute walk to downtown area of Ft. Myers beach. Pricey at time we went but was “high time” for tourist season. Would recommend.

This was our second trip here, this one with our three teen sons. The location is perfect, on the quiet north end of Ft Myers Beach. We walked miles of the beach each day and started each morning with a walk up to Bowditch Park. We enjoyed watching the boats go out in the morning, and caught some dolphins playing a couple of times. The front desk, kitchen and cleaning staff were all pleasant and helpful. The breakfast in the morning had a nice selection, and we really enjoyed the 24 hour coffee. No need to find a good coffee shop! Room was clean. The kitchenette (full size fridge, two electric burners and a microwave) was nice for lunches. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance, but we walked or drove over to Trico Shrimp company a few nights and grilled our dinner on the grill at the hotel. Was wonderful sitting in the beach watching the sunset while we ate. We stayed in room 107. It is a larger than the room we stayed in previously, with a very large bathroom (shower only, handicapped accessible). While a few of the rooms on the first floor are blocked by the pool, this one is not. It has a beautiful view of the beach, and it was convenient with our boys to be able to just walk right on out of our room to the beach or pool. My husband and I do prefer the rooms higher up. The non-garden level rooms all have a balcony. We missed being able to open the sliding door/window and hear the waves! We had a great time. We usually VRBO on vacation when we have the boys with us, but this has all the amenities of a VRBO, with the convenience of a hotel. The location and staff (and sunsets!) cannot be beat!

16/03/2018

Stay for three nights with my 20 year old son. Unfortunately it was cool and windy and not Beach weather. This of course is not the resorts fault. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the staff was and how accommodating for any need. We had a 2 full bed unit and while the space was a little tight it was a very good use of space and we made it work with no problems. I found the beds to be on the hard side but my son thought they were fine. The rooms were clean and well equipped. My only suggestion would be to offer a roll of paper towels and a small sponge to clean dishes with. I felt that the hotel offered a good value and included a nice hot breakfast newspapers coffee 24 hours a day. The hotel does not include beach chairs or umbrellas but they do provide rentals on the beach and they do provide towels. The hotel is in a great location and we were able to walk down to the pier area where there are lots of places to shop and eat. The hotel is not Smoker Friendly and does not offer any smoking areas except for standing outside in the front. We had a beautiful view from the top 5th floor but I think any of the floors would be fine. We also had no problem parking there and it was free. I only wish we could have done more but the weather did not cooperate.

First of all thank you for staying with us and writing a review. We are sorry the weather did not cooperate for you while you were here.

My husband took me for a birthday weekend to Ft Myers beach. We had never been but I had heard it was a hot spot for spring break so I was worried about how relaxing it would be. The Best Western seems to be in a quieter area and there were mostly families at the hotel. We were on the 2nd floor and couldn't have imagined a better view. The property is kept up very nicely with palm trees and lovely landscaping. Just a few steps onto the beach and we rented lounge chairs that were ours for the day. It's just a short walk to the pier and restaurants. We were lucky enough to have been there during the shrimp festival which was a lot of fun. I think this may become a regular birthday weekend tradition!

08/03/2018

Last October, 2017, we made arrangements to return to Fort Myers Beach in February, 2018, right in the center of the "High season", most expensive. And of course we had to pay, a lot. I chose the Best Western Plus from reviews on Tripadvisor. We are regular visitors to FMB, and I used to like the north end of the island. For example, we spent 10 days at Pink Shell last year (December) which is just a few thousand feet up the beach from the BW. There is no better place to vacation than FMB, except for the traffic in the busy season. Check in on Feb. 7 was smooth, and we took a room on the 5th floor, with the best view. I will attempt to attach a few snapshots to this memo. Number 509 was a one room with kitchenette, 2 beds, balcony, pleasant bathroom. We usually go for 2 bedroom suites with full kitchen, but we decided to take a chance on downsizing this year, to try to save a little money. We travel heavy, and it showed. At breakfast buffet we met a lot of people who were vacationing from our part of the country. Illinois: Detroit; New York State, Dayton. A lot of those folks return here to the Best Western year after year, and some stay for the entire month. Most were senior citizens like us, who are early risers so if you want a seat at the breakfast buffet, plan accordingly. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and there is no better beach front than here at the BW. Shuffleboard seems to be passion for young and old. I don't want to sign off without mentioning the resident parrot, named Coco. He is either in the lobby or somewhere on the grounds all the time. He talks sometimes when he feels like it. If someone doesn't mind the incredible jams of traffic coming into or out of FMB in February, you might still like it.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you fritomann for writing a review and for staying with us. You are correct with the traffic issues, but what is good about the north end is you can park and walk to all the attractions and restaurants. We also have a new Beach Tram that is just for the north end to school street. Nice pictures

I loved the location of this hotel. Walks on the beach in the AM and walk to restaurants at night. The pool was perfect and we always had a place to sit. Having a kitchen was a plus! My only difficulty was sleeping, even though beds were very comfortable. The AC was loud and the fridge was as well. I am a light sleeper and I used a white noise app to help some. Even with that being said I really loved the stay here! And the view from our 5th floor room was awesome.

Our room was right by the elevator and we never heard a thing! We also didn't hear any neighbors. All the guests and staff were friendly. Breakfast was also excellent every morning.

We had a blast at Best Western Beach Plus Resort. The staff were amazing. Breakfast was hot and there were lots of choices. The pool was my kids favourite. The best part about the pool is that the sun always hits it. Even if it's a bit windy on the beach (only a few steps away). The pool area is always sunny. It honestly felt like a home away from home! Even the hotel guests were friendly and would talk to my kids and encourage them in the pool or praise them for doing something polite. It felt like a great little community.

This was a wonderful, clean place to stay right on the Gulf and Beach! The property had adorable Edison lights strung and seating everywhere to enjoy the beautiful weather! The beach is white powder and incredible in every way. This resort is a few minutes walk to Time's Square and all of the fun, action packed bars and restaurants. I was with my Mom and boys and felt safe and taken care of at all times. It is very safe to walk back from the Square alone at night. Loads of people on bikes, walking, enjoying families and the beach. This is the most wonderful place in Florida that we've traveled to and will definitely be back! My boys are college age and would have enjoyed a hot tub and work out facility as well, but would still give this resort a solid A!!!! Thanks so much for such a great stay on the beach!!!

We have been coming to this exceptional hotel in Fort Myers Beach each January for several years. The gulf and beach views from the rooms, and the closeness to town and restaurants can't be beat. The rooms are spacious and the property is beautifully maintained. The breakfast has a variety of hot and cold items, all good. However, as noted in previews reviews, finding a place to sit for breakfast can be a challenge, especially when folks linger after they have finished eating. While there are tables outside it can sometimes be cold in winter months. Portable heaters might be one solution. Rich and the entire front desk staff are very pleasant and helpful and Coco, the parrot, is welcoming with his "hello". We will be back!

All rooms have balconies(I think) with ocean views framed by palm trees. There is a nice pool and chairs just below the balconies with beach access right there out the back patio doors next to the live colorful parrot (at least when we were there there was a parrot in a cage). Breakfast was usual okay BW type with lots of fruit. This is a great vacation hotel, but kinda pricey unless you can jam the whole family in a room - which was big and had a kitchenette even!

My husband and I stayed last week 1/9-11 during a wonderful heat wave of low 80 degree weather. I thoroughly enjoyed our the beach, the pool and our room. The grounds are so clean and the pool is immaculate. There is shuffleboard along with several tiki huts that are lit up at night for an evening view of sunset or just rekaxing. The breakfast bar was filled with several rotating entrees and featured extra add-ins for oatmeal and waffle toppings (dried fruits, chocolate chips, etc)...and really anything you could want. Again, the staff was on hand to restock items and clean the area to perfection! (The scrambled eggs were truly the best "hotel" eggs I've ever eaten. ) The front desk team: Scott and Rich were warm and welcoming. In addition, the Macaw parrot, Coco, was on hand with a cheery "hello". My husband wasn't well the day we checked out. We occupied a handicap accessible room and Rich graciously stepped down to help my husband with his mobile scooter and into our car. Rich was such a great help, I know we couldn't have made it without his assistance. I can't say enough great things about this BW "Plus" hotel -- other than the staff added the "Plus!!" Next time I'll plan to visit at non-peak times and rates ;)

Beautiful hotel right on the beach about a 15 minute walk to town. Have stayed here four times and always been impressed with the helpful, friendly staff. Only complaint is there are not nearly enough tables in the breakfast area which is a real problem when people remain at the few available tables reading books/newspapers after finishing their breakfast. Very annoying to see people lingering while other guests are forced to eat breakfast while standing. There are a few tables outside but are not usable on cold mornings. Perhaps a sign requesting guests be courteous and move on once they have finished eating so others can sit would be helpful. Have heard other guests complain of this same situation.

05/01/2018

We are staying at The Best Western Plus Resort until January 6th, 2018. We checked in December 29th and we were early due to coming from another smaller property down the street. We are visiting with 2 other couples. Rich, at the Front Desk, took our phone number and actually got us in an hour before the scheduled check-in time, which is 3:00. The hotel offers a great (free)breakfast variety each morning. There is also shuffle board and a heated pool. The beach is kept clean and you can reasonably rent cabanas/umbrellas/chairs or water toys each day. Gary, from BW Holiday Water Sports, was pretty accommodating even in the inclement weather. We have a beach front corner unit room on the top floor. It has an amazing beautiful gulf view. We are very happy with our stay and have only had a couple of problems. One was no hot water between 5 pm and 7 pm, but I believe they are working on that. The other is some weird smell coming from the air/heating unit. We solved that by just turning it off and plugging in a couple of Snuggle air fresheners. They offered to come change the filter but we actually forgot about it due to the weather being unseasonably cold and not needing the air conditioner. Honestly, the staff is so polite and addresses any concerns or requests immediately. This morning I stopped by the front desk to inquire about paying to keep our room longer the day of check out. We have a late flight which isn't normally a big deal. But this year both my husband and I caught that awful bronchial cold virus going around and neither of us is feeling too great. Rich actually called me by my name and went above and beyond to try to work with us on that. This is their busy season so it was definitely not expected. We have been coming to Ft. Myers for about 15 years and never stayed here. I really don't know why because it is a very lovely place and I will be back in April. I almost forgot to mention the fireworks on New Years Eve.

Great hotel for the area. Updated decor throughout. Very nice grounds and right on the beach. Breakfast was excellent for the kids with plenty to choose from. Coffee available 24/7 was a great amenity especially with the cold weather we had. The staff was very nice and helpful as well

We were here from Dec 29-Jan 6 and had a fantastic time. The staff goes above and beyond. It is so very clean. The breakfast is wonderful and the staff are constantly making sure the food area is clean and well stocked. The front desk staff were so helpful, including giving my daughter paper so she could draw and write about all her Florida memories. Our room was always cleaned beautifully by Herminia and she even folded my daughter's blankie each day (we always looked forward to seeing the different way she would arrange it). The beach in front of the hotel is very clean and was a perfect spot to watch the New Years fireworks. Every staff member we encountered, even if it was just in passing on the elevator, was so friendly. We highly recommend this hotel.

My family and I have been spending Christmas and other occasions here for 7 years. We can even bring our dog! All the staff are efficient and friendly. No request is too small or large for them. The hotel is always very clean and safe. The beach is kept up beautifully and each room has a vies. The value for dollar is excellent with many choices of room sizes to fit any budget. You will truly enjoy FMB if you book in here.

Great hotel with excellent staff. Wifi perfect also in the pool area. Breakfast had all you need. Location perfect for us, calm and quiet but only 5 min walking to Times square. No bar and restaurant at the hotel but that creates the calm and quiet atmosphere. No gym but we were not looking for that, instead take a fantastic beach walk in the morning or sunset. View from balcony is fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel.

"Breakfast nightmare"

1
13/12/2017

We were very disappointed with the breakfast service. There was no place to sit because the area was so small. Given the number of rooms there is no way that even a fraction of the guests could sit and eat. We had a huge altercation with the breakfast staff who would not give us a yogurt. She said 'I already gave your wife one'. My son came later than us for breakfast but 15 minutes before the end of breakfast. The fridge with yogurt was empty so I asked her and she refused us the yogurt. This went back and forth for a while. I said this is ridiculous and would go to the front desk to complain. She said 'go ahead'. Then after some discussion at the front desk someone else came to tell her to give us the yogurt. Some thereafter the fridge was refilled with yogurt. We were very upset and requested some compensation at check out for the terrible service. He did nothing. My colleague recommended this hotel but we were hugely disappointed. For the $560 that we paid for two nights (my wife's birthday weekend out) it was terrible.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
I am sorry we did not meet your expectations with our breakfast. We do meet the seating criteria as per Best Western standards and have outdoor seating as well. During periods of high occupancy we do our best to accommodate all guests and have extended our breakfast by an hour. I am sorry that our breakfast attendant cleaned out the yogurt refrigerator before 10:30am however she did get you the yogurt you requested. She has been retrained on the correct way to handle this situation.

11/12/2017

We stayed for 3 nights in December. Our room was on the fifth floor, which I would recommend trying to get. There are some lovely palm trees in front of the hotel, but on the lower floors, they might interfere with the view. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from our balcony. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for dinner and things to do. Everything that can be done to update the hotel has been done: lovely tile throughout the room, newer TV, and very fast internet. The kitchen area includes a full size refrigerator and stove top along with dishes and utensils. The only complaint that I would have is that there was no desk to use for computer work. I ended up using the kitchen counter extension and it worked ok. All in all, I'd say this is a great hotel; right on the beach in a safe area and easy access to restaurants.

Great with all day complimentary coffee, latte, cappuccino in the lobby.

This place is a true gem! My friend and I spent a long weekend here and could not be happier. The front desk staff was exceptional, particularly Rich, Sierra and Joy. They were friendly, helpful and available for any questions or concerns. The rooms are spacious , clean and all ocean front with a full kitchen. The pool was a good size and the beach soft white sand and gorgeous. We walked every day, 4 miles round trip. The best part is walking to the fun beach restaurants and tiki bars. Rich had several great recommendations and Sierra led us to Yo Taco for our favorite afternoon snack. The highlight was the spectacular sunset every evening. Best I have seen. The only thing missing was a drink cart and a nacho bar! Suggested it to Rich and he said he will bring it up to management:) I cannot wait to go back, hopefully this spring. Highly recommend this facility for the ambience, convenience and overall fabulous staff. The

"Upgraded WIFI is super fast"

5
28/11/2017

Book this hotel if you need access to fast and reliable WIFI. It is the best service I have ever experienced in a hotel. I could even pick up a signal good enough to work at the water's edge! Of course, there are many other reasons to consider this hotel. The rooms contain a clean and modern efficiency kitchen equipped with cooking and eating utensils, ample cabinets, microwave, a full size refrigerator/freezer and stovetop. The sleeping portion of the room is slightly smaller than average. But the breakfast bar and stools make an excellent perch to work or eat so this more than makes up for the smaller sleeping area in terms of comfort in the space. There is an upholstered sitting chair in the room as well, and two chairs and side table on the outdoor balcony. Ample space to be comfortable for even a long stay. The floors are tiled and I appreciated the broom and dustpan supplied in the room to get rid of any slippery sand that accumulated during the day. The mattresses are very firm (no pillow top) and covered with a lightweight duvet. There are USB ports on the nightstand and many available and easily accessible outlets elsewhere in the room. The front desk staff was both friendly and responsive. The five floor hotel has two elevators that are shared by guests and staff and sometimes run a bit slow. The staircase is open air and therefore felt perfectly safe to use regularly at any hour if you prefer to walk. I believe that all rooms are oceanfront, i.e., have a full on frontal view of the Gulf, although the view from some rooms may be blocked by the Gulf front pool and fencing. There is a grassy lawn between the hotel and the beach that has some shade, lovely views, a shuffleboard court, and is dotted with adirondack chairs and benches. The lawn is gently lit at night with subtle landscape lighting. With a nice ambience in the dark, this lawn creates a very homey and social feel to the resort. It would be especially nice for someone who is wheelchair bound or otherwise disabled since the Gulf views can be easily enjoyed from the accessible areas of the lawn. Some of the adirondack chairs have a higher and non-slanted seat which would be easier for a disabled guest to get in and out of than the typical low and reclined adirondack seat. Clearly the management has thought of the comfort of all its guests. Also on the lawn is a gas grill, picnic tables, and a swing set that includes a baby swing. The resort has a moderately sized heated, chlorinated pool that is about 30 ft by 15 ft, ranging in depth from 2 to 6 feet. At full capacity during Thanksgiving weekend, the resort was full of families with many young children, and the pool was crowded with children playing. Beach chairs were renting from the concessionaire for $25/day (plus tip) for 2 chairs and an umbrella. The beach is wide, clean and uncrowded with soft white sand. Unfortunately, development and flood management are causing harmful algal blooms in the Gulf. You may see brown or reddish water instead of the iconic turquoise. Brown doesn't necessarily mean polluted or unhealthy, so check the web for water conditions and swimming advisories. There are many restaurants, bars, and shops in the Times Square area which is located about 1/3 mile south of the hotel. A good selection of Gulf front grills are there and just beyond as well. There is no bar or restaurant at the hotel or in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, although there is a 7-11 south about half that distance which carries, beer and wine, snacks, and some prepared foods like sandwiches and hot dogs. It is very pleasant to walk along the beach in the evening to Times Square for dinner. I would highly recommend this hotel and believe it is one of the nicest on the island. It is at a slightly lower price point than the well regarded Pink Shell resort to the north and has the added advantage of being within walking distance to many restaurants, shopping, and entertaining.

Visit every year around October or November and this year proved the hotel continues to maintain its very high standards. Great location on beach front, fantastic team on site make for a very enjoyable stay. Rooms are spotless and bed extremely comfortable. Only slight niggles are breakfast seems fairly basic for me as a European, and whilst I know air-con is essential in bedrooms in FL, I find the units a little noisier than normal, so sleep could be affected.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this property. Check in was fast and easy. Everyone was very friendly. All rooms face the ocean. The room had a king size bed and a small efficiency kitchen. It was very clean and housekeeping did a great job. The grounds are very nice and well maintained. The beach is very nice. We rented beach chairs and an umbrella for $22 a day. The only downside was the ocean water was disgusting and we did not go in the water because it was brown. If your not interested in going in the ocean then this hotel is worth a visit. Also the hotel allows dogs which I'm not a fan of.

This was our 2nd visit this year. We were at first skeptical because we didn't really want a chain hotel for our beach vacation in June . This was all that was available at the time and we couldn't have been happier. So much so that we went back this past week! All rooms are beachfront with a little balcony. The complimentary breakfast had a nice variety each day. 24 hour coffee/cappuccino/latte machine is a plus. Staff is exceptional and the man who cares for Coco (the resident parrot) is Amazing! We will definitely be returning!

I took the 12 year old girl that I have custody of now and my 12 year old grandson to Naples to visit family. I made arrangements at Best Western in Naples. After a few days in Naples and the kids wanting just to play on the beach, I remembered my friend saying how great the Best Western at Fort Myers Beach was. I changed venues. The kids played on the magnificent beach, made a sand castle and loved everything about the trip. the young lady had never seen a beach. She has since decided that she would not eat any more seafood. her reasoning, since the ocean and beaches are so gorgeous, she doesn't want to do anything to mess that up for any one. the staff answered all of her questions and made her feel at ease on the beach and in Florida.

We were so very close to the ocean, it was heavenly. They have everything you can think of needing for a beach trip and if they didn't already have it in the suite they brought it (for example, an extension cord). Highly recommend!!

Words just can't describe how great this place was. First when you walk in you are greeted by friendly staff. Their mints are awesome! I may have taken 20 the whole time I was here (sorry). :) I love that every room has a view of the water and must I say it's amazing. We went here around spring break time and we didn't want anything crazy and this was perfect. The room was clean and the beds are SUPER comfy. The patio was also great to sit out and hear the breeze it was so relaxing. I love the breakfast, I loved making my own waffles they were so good. Coco the bird was amazing and so funny had to say hi every time. I also loved the sitting area outside it was so nice to sit and relax. The beach was clean and the chair rentals were awesome. Walking to eat was short and easy no need for a vehicle. When we sadly left the owner helped and got a car scheduled for us. I loved talking to the staff they were so knowledgeable. I will totally come back here it was so fun.

10/10/2017

The location of the hotel is awesome as you can easily walk to Time Square and I personally feel it is on the better section of the beach. Great breakfast selections. Every room is oceanfront. Nice sized pool right on the beach. Hotel room was clean and nice. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. We arrived before check in and they locked up our luggage and called once our room was ready which was way before check in time. We have stayed here twice and were happy with both visits to the area.

"Beautiful place ruined by lack of housekeeping"

2
09/10/2017

This is the 6 th day of a 7 day vacation my husband and I wanted to relax and unwind on the beach. The location and grounds are lovely, but there is an appalling lack of housekeeping. Each morning we would leave for the beach approximately 10:30 AM and place the “please make up the room” sign on the door, only to return to find the sign on the floor and the room still not cleaned at 3:00 PM. The first 2 times we complained to the front desk, who promptly called housekeeping to make up the room. We patiently waited in the lobby each time until the room was ready, about 45 minutes later. Today,however, was the last straw. After a day of shopping, we returned to the room at 3:00 PM, again to find the room untouched and the “please make up the room” sign turned around to the”do not disturb”side. When we complained to the front desk we were told that we must have placed the sign on the wrong way or the wind turned it around. I was told that housekeeping is not allowed to clean any room that has the “do not disturb”sign on it.Hmmm... I was certain that I placed it on the door correctly. When we asked if they could make up the room now, we were told that housekeeping has left for the day! So, now we have to make the bed and use dirty towels. If you don't mind doing your own housekeeping, then this is the place for you. I did learn a tip from the front desk that housekeeping WILL make up the room if NO sign is left on the door!

Please except our apologies, there must have been some kind of misunderstanding or miscommunication regarding your room service. As you can see by all of our other reviews this just doesn't happen. We hope you come back and see us so we can give you a more positive experience.

The helpful staff in the reception that though they were stressed took their time to help me and my husband to get another accomodation during the Irma hurricane that was more safe Without their prompt actions I wouldn't have understood the seriousness of the situation I do regret not being able to stay at this beautiful spot again and hope it' s not to affected by Irma I add a picture from my stay last year im Sept

I've lost count of how many times I've stayed here but it must be at least 13 - including annual stays in December/January - and I've already booked the next stay. (About time they comped me a bottle of wine or something!) My most recent stay way very special to me. Last year when I had a stroke and the therapists were constantly asking about my goals, being able to get back to this hotel was always at the top of my list. (I'm not sure what that says about me.) I even dragged the physiotherapists outside so I could practice walking on sand. Fortunately everything went well and seven months after the stroke I was able to make the trip. While the hotel property is very nice, the reasons I keep coming back are the location and the hotel staff. For me the location is perfect. It's on a quiet stretch of beach so you can really relax and it is only a short walk (didn't feel too short last trip) from the Times Square area which has a good selection of restaurants and shops. As for the staff, the management seems to have a knack for hiring great people. Even the maintenance and housekeeping staff are always friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. I can't wait to get back.

I stayed here approximately 14 years ago and have wanted to go back since. My husband and I wanted a trip to Florida and I picked Fort Myers. We stayed here for 4 nights and it was great! It is a great location and right on the ocean. The complimentary breakfast has a great variety and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back.

"Best Surprise on Ft. Myers Beach"

06/09/2017

I stayed at the Best Western on Ft. Myers Beach for August 11-13. It was an impromptu weekend getaway to just relax and not worry about "stuff". I must say I never stayed there before but will definitely return. It was clean, quiet,and friendly. The staff was helpful, room was comfortable and clean, AND faced the Gulf. Each evening I was watching the sunset from my balcony. It was also close to restaurants, shopping, and not a long drive. It was a GREAT WEEKEND!

if you want to relax, enjoy incredible sunsets, walk to various and excellent restaurants and just be present! this is the place in Tt. Myers Beach.

You will be very happy with this hotel, excellent value, perfect location, and great staff. You can't ask for more, Grandparents, kids,and parents were all happy with this place.

"Every Room Faced the Beach."

5
26/08/2017

We discovered two distinct Ft. Myers Beach experiences. If you want a (relatively) quiet beach front experience, you should start with the Edison Beach house, and work your way West (North?) along Estero Blvd away from the shops and clubs. This Best Western is an 8 minute walk from the madness. It is purposely built so that every room faces the beach, meaning that the hotel is actually a tall, thin motel. You enter your tiled room directly from a door that faces the parking lot. You will not be in a carpeted hallway leading to a carpeted room. Why do you want that when you're covered in sand? Every room has a balcony unless you have a special needs room on the first floor. The view is particularly breathtaking during a thunderstorm. We came in August, and the beach in front of the hotel was remarkably calm and quiet. If you want the opposite experience, visit the Lani Kai Island Resort. The beach is packed. You might not sleep. You might do drugs. It looks pretty wild. I preferred the Best Western, but to each their own.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review and thank you for staying with us. We love our location for all the same reasons, and yes most of our guest do. When we renovated in 2008 we put tile and pavers everywhere as we have seen what happens to carpet in the past. We hope to see you again.

"Should be retitled "The Palms View""

21/08/2017

26 years have passed since I was last in Fort Myers Beach with a beautiful view from the tip of Estero Island. That hotel has been re-developed as apartments. I wanted to recap and enjoy some nostalgia and so booked a night at the Best Western Plus right on the beach with an ocean view. Fort Myers Beach hotels, shops and restaurants mostly charge premium prices and this was no exception, especially in "high" season. The huge disappointment was that (from my room on the fourth floor) the fronds of the large mature palm trees obscured our view of the ocean, beach and any interesting happenings at sea. I like trees but the hotel's attraction (and advert) has to be the ocean view and these trees should be replaced with smaller fan or sable palms.

"What a great place"

"Great Beach Escape"

20/08/2017

The hotel is located on the beach toward the end of the island. There's a good selection of restaurants and bars at the pier area (Times Square) within a 10 minute walk (sidewalk or beach). The hotel provides a hot breakfast with the usual selection. Personally, I didn't care for the breakfast but it was quick and convenient as opposed to walking. The hotel is pet friendly and we saw several people walking their dogs on the beach. The rooms all face the Gulf but first, second and third floors have obstructed views (trees). We stayed three nights with our dog, in August, and were amazed at how quiet the area and hotel were. Off season was great as we had the beach mostly to ourselves and restaurants weren't crowded. You should be prepared thought, the sand gets everywhere. The rooms are all tiled floors and sometimes get slippery. We had a great stay and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a baseball tournament with all of our team families. The hotel manager and staff are great and felt very homey with a talking parrot in the lobby. We had a ton of rain delays and our boys ended up hanging in the lobby a lot! Rooms are small but clean and every room has a balcony overlooking the beach. Breakfast was good and the property has lots of adirondack chairs to hang.

"Not a resort"

16/08/2017

This was an adequate room, but it should not be rated #1!!! There is no bar, restaurant, fitness room or spa. The pool is small. This is an average MOTEL. The breakfast is very average--watered-down eggs and Folgers(!) coffee.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Please accept our apologies if you were not pleased with our breakfast selections. Please know that water is not mixed into the eggs we serve and the sausage that we offer is the brand Hormel. Again, please accept our apologies for any inconveniences or problems you encountered during your stay with us. We hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. Not sure if we will ever have a bar as this is a family resort, 99% of our guest just assume to have it a short walk down the beach.

Stayed in an ocean front room with a grandchild. It was nice to have breakfast provided. And the location made our vacation especially easy. The pool is literally just outside the door from the lobby and the beach is just on the other side of the pool. I could watch the sunset over the beach while swimming in the pool with my grandson! We loved having a full size refrigerator to keep snacks and water in. And we were only a block down the street from Time Square with its shops, street performers, and restaurants. I loved sitting on our balcony for coffee each morning!

We had one of the suites. It has a small kitchen, a couch and two king beds. the rooms are very clean. All of the rooms face the ocean. Great view. The staff is wonderful. Gigi at the front desk was very helpful. The pool is a salt water pool and they do provide towels. The lobby is very welcoming and a great place to relax out of the sun for a few minutes. They also have a very nice spread for the complimentary breakfast. The Best Western is a short walk to the shops and many restaurants.

This was, by far, THE MOST RELAXING family vacation that we've EVER had. The hotel's offerings and location were second to none. This Best Western Plus on Fort Myers Beach is DEFINITELY a diamond in the rough !! The entire staff was very pleasant and helpful during our stay as well. THANK YOU !!!!

My family of 4, just returned from a stay at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach. Great hotel! Great value! Great location! Very clean! Everyone from housekeeping to front desk to maintenance staff were very friendly. Located right on the beach. Pretty and well maintained grounds with grassy seating area and shuffleboard overlooking the beach. Beautiful ocean view from all rooms. Room was nicely decorated and spacious enough for 2 adults, 2 teens. Most importantly, very clean! Included full size fridge, microwave, cooktop, as well as pots, pans, plates, glasses, cooking utensils. Pool is very clean and overlooks the beach. Noodles and floats were available for guests to use. Towels were plentiful and easily accessible in the lobby. Breakfast, which is included, was very good. Something for everyone, from fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, pastries to hot foods, including make your own waffles. Coffee/hot beverage machine in lobby 24 hours. Nice laundry room with 2 washers and dryers. Computers and printer in lobby. Walking distance (5-10 minutes) to 7-11 store, souvenir shops, restaurants, pier. With so many hotels to choose from, it was hard to decide. We could not be happier that we chose this one!

This was the third year in a row that we have stayed at this hotel. Now planning for next year. What can I say, everything from check-in to check-out was perfect. The staff was awesome, anything you need they help you. The breakfast is one of the amenities that they provide. The closeness to restaurants is also a plus. If they continue doing what they are doing they will always be the best in Fort Myers Beach.

The beach here is unbelievable. Wide with deep white sand and beautiful water. All apartments face the sea. We stayed on the fourth floor and had an incredible view of the sunset. The size of the place was comfortable for our family with boys of 5 and 9. Felt very safe and the amazon parrot Coco made the place feel very friendly. Guests were a mix of seniors and families. Good size rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast was very good with lots to choose from. Located a five minute walk from the Times Square bustle which can be entertaining enough for a short while but is nice to be able to get away from. Try the nearby restaurant Dixie Fish Co.

What we loved the most about this hotel was the location and it's proximity to the beach. The breakfast is a plus and the staff at breakfast was great. They made sure that there was enough food. Although the hotel looked to be completely booked, it didn't feel like that. My only problem with the hotel was the AC unit and the shower head. The AC unit didn't feel like it would cool too much at night specially when you come back from the beach sunburned. The shower head felt like it was missing a part or it was put on too tight. I felt like I was showering with a hard mist hose, the water pressure was great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Fort Myers Beach.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. Sorry about any problems with the AC and the shower head mixes air with the water so it is has strong pressure without wasting as much water as a normal shower head. Thanks again for staying with us.

Beach - excellent - wide, soft, cool to the feet. Dolphins, stingrays, and shells, shells, shells. Staff - excellent - from the front desk, to housekeeping, to Coco the resident lobby parrot. Rooms - excellent - in room fridge, cook top, dishes, sink - a real cost savings to eating out 3 meals a day Front desk - excellent - there was an intern, Rob, during my staff and he is THE BOMB!

"Quite a let down "

11/07/2017

I use TripAdvisor reviews for most of my bookings and so based my choice of this hotel on all of the positive feedback I'd read. Maybe I was expecting too much for the £1100 paid for 5 nights but I really wasn't enamoured. Thankfully the staff had noted my email request for a room on a high floor and we were given one on the top floor with lovely views. However, the room felt very dark and slightly depressing. Plenty of room and comfy beds, but the bathroom was small and the accommodation was overall pretty uninviting. To make it worse, the air con unit was about 8 inches from the bed and sounded like a truck engine running. The breakfast was totally awful and the tiny dining area packed full of people, we only had it once during our stay. The pool was ok but heated so not very refreshing and there's barely any shade from the hot afternoon sun. Plenty of sun loungers though, which were far more comfortable than the old rickety ones for hire on the beach. 2 out of 5 nights we had power cuts due to storms which was a real pain when trying to get showered and ready to go out to dinner. However, the staff were apologetic and helpful, a credit to the hotel. I'm really quite sad to write a negative review as we had looked forward to our first visit to Fort Myers Beach but we really didn't feel our stay was worth what we'd paid and our expectations not met at all.

Checked in on 4th of July and a staff member was checking a list of registered guests at the parking lot entrance to insure all guests had parking. Millie at front desk was friendly and efficient and provided us with a map of the island. All of the housekeeping and maintenance staff we encountered were very friendly. Our room was on the fourth floor overlooking the pool. I sat on the balcony each morning and watched as the maintenance staff consistently took care of the pool, sweeping the pavers, and in general took good care of the property. I appreciated they closed the pool at dusk so no worries of late night noise and carousing keeping us awake. When I travel, I carry disinfectant wipes and wipe down light switches, door handles, etc. As the room had a kitchenette, I went over counters, etc....not a bit of dirt or dust on the wipes! The bathroom had plenty of storage and the closet had a broom which was great for all the sand we tracked in on the tile floors. The kitchen had standard plates, utensils plus a toaster and single cup coffee maker. There was also a two burner stove top, a microwave and apartment-size refrigerator. There were some issues during our stay but all were addressed... the coffee machine was out of order a couple of days, but coffee from Dunkin Donuts was provided during breakfast hours. The lobby door was also out of order for several days, but neither impacted our stay. We were treated to a fantastic 20 minute fireworks display on the 4th at the nearby pier and would consider coming again in early July. I would recommend bringing bug spray if you plan to walk any of the trails in the nearby parks or go to Sanibel/Captiva Islands....the mosquitoes were heavy in the parks and the no see ums were swarming at Sanibel. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a comfortable and affordable stay.

This has turned into a yearly destination for our family for many reasons. Location, great beach, friendly staff and nice rooms. Unfortunately, the weather didn't hold out for us one day as it was incredibly windy and rainy. This did not stop the fun we had. Time's Square is a short walk from the hotel with many shops and dining to keep you busy. When the weather cleared, it was very nice to have our own umbrella and chairs ready and waiting for us on the beach. It was always nice to start the day with a nice breakfast by the beach. The area was always clean and stocked with good breakfast choices. Thanks again for another wonderful stay.

On the ocean and very close to the town square. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Solid rooms, cannot hear the neighbors. The staff is very accommodating. Great value for the price. Would definitely stay again.

We always have a great time and relaxing stay here at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort, Ft Myers Beach. The weather was good, beach clean, staff very helpful. Every year we find new places to eat, and enjoyed the dolphin and shelling trip this year to Lovers key beach. Will be back again next year.

"Lovely Hotel On The Beach"

29/06/2017

We stayed in one of the Two King Bed Mini Suites. Room was comfortable, well maintained and clean, with a gorgeous view of the beach. Breakfast is very nice and the lovely ladies do a great job of restocking it. Location of the hotel couldn't be better, just a short walk to the restaurants at Times Square and the pier. We loved the Pizzeria at the front of Times Square and the Beached Whale a bit further down the road. This was our third visit to this hotel so we obviously love it, but this time I would have knocked off half a star if that were possible because of noise around the pool at the weekend with radios being played loudly on both Friday and Saturday afternoons. The Saturday was so bad we couldn't remain at the pool, and weren't the only residents to leave. It appeared that a family who were staying at the hotel hosted a birthday party, with guests who were not hotel residents, so completely took over the pool area. I appreciate hoteliers don't like to stop guests enjoying themselves but I think some rules are needed for the good of all.

My wife, son, and I took a small family vacation and traveled to Ft. Myers Beach from West Palm. I had stayed at this hotel years ago when I was younger and wanted to see if it was still as good as I had remembered, and it was. We had such a great time and the location of this resort is unbeatable. The front desk staff were super friendly and made us feel welcome. Rich is particular was so great and every time we walked by the desk would ask how we were doing and gave my son a high five. He is one example of the many wonderful staff. The rooms are super clean and have little kitchens in them, which is great if you are trying to save a bit of money and want to do some cooking while vacationing. If you want to avoid cooking, then you only have to walk about a half mile and you are at the pier, which has tons of eating options. All rooms have a beach view and once you walk out of the lobby you only have to walk about 500ft and you are at the Gulf of Mexico. They have umbrella and chair rentals available for only $25 a day or you can bring your own and park them at the water. The beach was never crowded the whole time we were there. If the ocean isn't your thing, the resort also has a pool that is shaded for the better part of the morning which is nice if you are trying to escape the sun for a little bit. Breakfast is included and it is a warm breakfast. Eggs, sausages, biscuits, the works! The resort is a wonderful place and if you travel to Ft. Myers Beach you should check this place out. We will be making this a regular spot to travel to!

Overall great location steps to the beach. All rooms overlook the ocean. The staff was very attentive, The beach area was clean. Staff has chairs and umbrellas set up for guests by 8:00 AM. Short walk to beach activities. The hotel is a little dated but makes up for it in regards to the value of pricing.

Hotel was very nice and pet friendly. Palm trees on the property were beautiful but blocked a lot of the beautiful ocean views from some rooms. Very nice breakfast buffet but the eggs tasted like they ere powered or liquid bags and not fresh. The rest of the breakfast was very nice.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes the palm trees have grown so much over the 25 plus years I have been here, we are waiting on the company as we speak to give them a good haircut.

Hotel, pool, and beach area were clean. A true place to relax, with palm trees and places to sit in the shade. Beach area had a lot of shells. You can rent a chair and umbrella on the beach. Free breakfast every morning. The food was good and always warm. Staff was helpful and friendly. Coco the parrot was fun to talk too. The town square if 10 minutes away with shops and places to eat. Great food and not expensive. Also a 7-11 down the street. I didn't have a car, just walked everywhere. Can't wait to go again

My wife and I from Pikesville, Md came back to this Best Western for the 3rd time in four years for my wife's birthday on May 24. We love this place! We picked it out from many trip advisor reviews in 2013, and decided to return again, this time for 8 nights. The hotel is right in front of the beach and all rooms face the Gulf. The location is excellent, within walking distance of many restaurants and "Time Square", where all the little shops are. The staff is friendly and knowledgable of places to eat. There was always parking spaces behind the hotel. For us, a direct flight from BWI is great also. If you are comming to Ft. Myers beach, then this hotel should be high on your list to consider. Also, please say hi to Coco!!

My great-niece and I stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. We particularly enjoyed the coffee machine, and learned we like lattes. Great opportunity for non-coffee drinkers to experiment. My only disappointment staying here has nothing to do with the hotel - the shells as you're walking in and out of the ocean are a real pain - literally. Maybe it's because a storm had just come through the area and washed more ashore than usual when we were there, but it was bad enough that regretfully I'd probably stay in a different area next time. That's the only reason I may return here. More about the hotel . . . the full kitchen was awesome. Everything was clean, nice bathroom and toiletries, comfortable beds. I appreciated having cabinets and drawers in the bath. Free wi-fi. A balcony is always a plus, great view from 5th floor. The employees were all very gracious and helpful. Breakfast was fine, typical eggs with 1-2 meats and the other accoutrements including waffles, fruit, breads, cereals, milks, juices, yogurt etc. The property is well maintained and the grounds are very pretty. The pool looked nice, but we never used it. Gary & Cody were at the booth (Holiday Water Sports) and set us up with chairs and umbrella. Really cool guys . . . they also arranged our wave runner dolphin outing - highly recommend. For supplies, there is a Publix about 3 miles down Estero. There's also a 7-11 just across the street. I definitely recommend getting some gulf shrimp and cocktail sauce at Trico Shrimp Company, it's just back across the bridge. Best shrimp I've had in a long time. So nice to have a kitchen to boil fresh shrimp with some Old Bay & homemade cocktail sauce . . . perfection.

Our family has been coming to this beautiful resort for the last 6 years and we love it! We try to stay here twice a year because the service is excellent and the rooms are always in perfect condition. We love the full kitchen which saves us money from eating out all the time. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. Our favorite part is sitting down next to the pool while enjoying a cold beverage and watching the sunset. The kids love it because they have a large beach to play on and a choice between the pool or ocean to swim in. The pier and the town center is close by to cruise at night. Their breakfast is top notch and they serve hot coffee/espresso all day from their high tech cafe maker! The staff is always smiling and very helpful...we always have an amazing experience! Thank you BW staff!

Best Western on Fort Myers Beach is a great place. The grounds, the lobby, and the staff are all excellent. The breakfast is superior to most other hotels you'll experience and there is an awesome coffee maker accessed all day long. You always feel very welcome and it's a short walk to the busy part of the beach but, just far enough. It's my choice on Fort Myers Beach.

This was our second time staying here & we just love it! Excellent location right on the gulf, walking distance to Times Square, the pier, gift shops & restaurants! Great views from the balcony! Friendly & helpful front desk staff. Fantastic beach! The guys on the beach with the umbrellas were great! The free breakfast in the morning is really nice to grab a quick bite, they even have a gluten free section! I do wish they had bacon more often, but the sausage was pretty good too. Love that there is a grill that guests can use. Unfortunately it was pretty windy the whole time we were there & we only got to use it once. The only complaints I have (and they're minor ones) were the bed & the pillows. The bed was not the most comfortable & the pillows on a king size bed were the size of square throw pillows. King size pillows would be SO much better!! But this would definitely not stop me from staying here again. We had a great time & met some great people! Hope to be back again next year!

The bed was very comfortable Breakfast had a great variety of food on different days. Meals were hot and coffee machine could even give expresso. The only problem there were no electrical outlets easily accessible on the lamps staff very friendly and helpful.

We just stayed at this motel--very clean and staff were excellent! Great location to walk to everything. Breakfast was good--a bit crowded, but we just moved outside and ate there. 7-11 just down the street to pick up snacks and drinks in our room. Rooms were a little tight for 4 people, but with the large and clean(have I mentioned clean before) bathroom--it was all good. Beautiful white sand beach, and can walk a long ways on the beach-- Wifi was free but patchy.... Will definitely pick Best Western Beach Resort Plus again!

Great location on Fort Myers beach. Walking distance to all the restaurants and bars.. Plenty of space to set up your beach chairs. Rooms, lobby and rest rooms are very clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is overcrowed with small children. Staff allows them to make waffles and pancakes which creates long lines and usually the equipment gets really messed up. If you sit by the pool expect a lot of noise and small children. Try and get a room that is away from the pool.

Only disappointments were no hot tub and the quality of the ocean for swimming. Water is not clear due to being close to the mouth of the river. I just swam in the pool which was smaller but nice.

The price was fair compared to other hotels/resorts in the area, the property is BEAUTIFULLY maintained, the staff are warm, friendly and professional, and this property gives the benefits of a large resort with a more intimate feel. The location is absolutely perfect. It is in a quieter area of the island, but within a 5-10 minute walk of all the restaurants/bars and public spaces on the island. We took a cab from the airport to the hotel, and walked everywhere all week. We will be back again!

All exterior corridors at this property, however beautifully appointed rooms. Located just steps away from the powder white beach! A well honed staff always looked busy tending to the windows and lobby. A stellar hot buffet breakfast that had more than just your standard items. Over all it was just what we needed for our getaway! Oh, and Fort Meyers Down town is absolutely stunning during the holidays it is very well decorated.

Whenever we want to get away to the beach and take our two dogs this is the 1st place we think of-i cant say enough about this top notch hotel which offers great ocean views, a fully equipped kitchen including a refrig/freezer, microwave, dishes, silverware, comfortable beds, nicely furnished rooms, great LG tvs, and a super quiet room even on a packed out Thanksgiving holiday wknd! You'll love the beatifully landscaped grounds, the open lobby area where you can pick up your complementary USA newspaper, coffee and tea anytime and a great buffet breakfast every morning. We love the chairs under the tiki hut that overlook the beach, which is perfect for walking/running. The hotel is only a short walk from the town square which features open air restaurants with live music, ice cream parlors, and shops. If you have small dogs you ll love this place as they dont sacrifice quality for their pet friendly facility. If you re looking for a beach getaway with a great view and a very well maintained and managed hotel at a reasonable price, you can look no further-you have found what you are looking for!

A well run hotel that offers all the amenities I would expect. Very much enjoyed our stay. We had a child with special needs and she really enjoyed the whole experience. Offers a great pool, large beach, balcony off each room, and is directly beach side. Even the parking lot is beautiful with pavers and a well maintained assortment of vegetation.

"Great little beach resort!"

16/11/2016

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. We had a dbl King, oceanfront room. Check in was a breeze and front desk employees were warm and welcoming. Our room was huge, modern and super clean. We had a kitchenette (w utensils/dishes and a full size frig), a sofa sleeper, a recliner, 2 king beds, a closet and a small bathroom. The balcony was large, with 3 chairs and a small table. Even the outside furniture was clean. The wifi is free, but sometimes slow/off-on. The outside grounds are well groomed and beautiful. At first glance, one might think they were at a Caribbean resort. There is a small pool, shuffleboard, swings, and plenty of chairs/loungers. The beach umbrella/chairs are for rental, and are not included in your stay. The hotel does provide beach/pool towels. The beach is pristine and shells abound. I was disappointed that the water wasn't the clear blue like it is a little further north of Fort Myers. We found all the employees to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. The gals did a great job keeping the free breakfast buffet running smoothly, and our cleaning crew did a super job with our room as well. The hotel is close to everything. Shops, restaurants and charters, bike rentals are all within walking distance. Sanibel Island and outlets are just a short drive away, and a Walmart is within 2 miles of resort. We would most certainly stay here again.

I never thought a Best Western could be at the top of my list for a beach vacation. Boy, was I wrong. This place is relaxed, clean and everything I wanted.

We love this place! From the waterfront balconies, the full kitchens, breakfast each morning and the location, it is hard to say which amenity is the most important. It has a quiet vibe, perfect for these soon-to-be retirees! My favorite thing is an early morning walk on the beach, followed by a great breakfast and then a beach chair to relax and get some sun. Highly recommend.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review and for staying with us again. We do have a great location and we will continue to improve, keeping things up to date, clean, and in working order is a challenge on the beach. Caring customer service doesn't cost a dime. Thanks again.

This Best Western on Ft. Myers Beach was very nice! Very clean and very modern. The room was very nice, and had a fridge, stove (no oven), microwave, sink, and ample kitchen utensils. All rooms face the beach and all have their own small, private balcony. We were especially impressed with the breakfasts that were offered. The items were presented in a serve yourself style, and everything was very fresh and hot (eggs, bacon, sausage, sausage gravy). A nice variety of other items as well -- oatmeal, yogurt, and muffins. And of course coffee, milk, and juices. The beach area was clean and private, and there was also a small pool on the property. The outdoor area (grass/trees) between the hotel and the beach was kept very nice as well. There were chairs to sit and relax in this area as well as set up on the beach. Very good value!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. It is always great to hear that our guests enjoyed all of our amenities. The North end of the island is more relaxed and you can still walk to all the activities.

If you are looking for a great getaway in the Ft. Meyers Beach area, consider this hotel a prime choice. The rooms are comfortable, contain a fully stocked kitchenette, and have a balcony that looks out into the gulf. The sand beach is wonderful, there are cabanas for use, plus you can rent ski jets right out front. It is a short walk to the town center where numerous beach restaurants are located. All in all, a great economical choice.

31/10/2016

This was our 7th stay at The Best Western Plus Ft. Myers Beach. Obviously we love it or we wouldn't keep returning. We have met the nicest people here who are also repeat guests. It's a very friendly, "homey" atmosphere. Imagine waking every morning to a beautiful view and the smell of fresh coffee, waffles, eggs and bacon/sausage awaiting you at the free breakfast buffet. In addition there's cereals, yogurt, breads, muffins, juices and fresh fruit. The coffee machine with many varieties is open 24 hours at no charge. It's a great way to start the day without having to drive or walk a distance to eat. There's a small intimate breakfast area or a patio with tables/chairs right outside the lobby. At 9:00 the beach chairs and umbrellas are put up for you to affordably rent until 5:00. The heated pool has lounges set up at no charge and is open until dusk. It's a short walk to the Times Square area with many bars, restaurants and shops. You can choose to walk on the beach along the water's edge or on the sidewalk on the road in front of the hotel. Either way it's only about a 6-7 minute walk. This is the best location of any place to stay on the beach. The grounds also have plenty of shade with mature palm trees and comfortable chairs to sit and just relax or have a game of shuffleboard. Every staff member is pleasant and, as busy as they are, will always stop to answer questions, chat or get whatever you might need. At night you'll return to your updated, clean, comfortable room all made up and dream of the next day. You won't want to leave and will never regret the decision to have chosen this hotel.

We always enjoy staying here. Free breakfast, clean beachfront rooms, and close to everything. Staff was friendly. Nice sitting at pool with view of beach. It's a bit pricy but it's comparable when you start upgrading at other hotels to get the same thing.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. Yes the other properties have close to the same rates but they also charge their guest for parking and resort fees and whatever they can make up fee. We want our guest to come back and stay with us and not charge them with these ridiculous fees.

"Brilliant gulf front hitel"

All rooms overlook the gulf. Ask for a room high up as view can be obscured by palm trees. Good breakfast. Location .. awesome .. beachside ... and a 5-10min walk from bars and eateries and shops in Times Square.food and drink much cheaper than Orlando.

"Continues to offer great room and service in a prime location"

28/10/2016

We visit every year and always find the rooms maintained to a high standard, and more importantly very clean. The rooms are comfortable and whilst not large, offer enough space to be perfectly relaxed for up to a week. Service is always great and very friendly. Location is what matters and you are right on the beautiful FM Beach. Hotel has very tidy gardens to relax in the shade if required and the heated pool whilst small is perfect for a dip to chill as required. Additionally you are only 5 minutes walk from the Pier and a number of restaurant options. The pier offers great sunset views. Parking is free during your stay and the breakfast whilst simple in choice is sufficient to start your day. If you are looking for relaxation in a quiet spot right on the beach, yet on 5 mins from a choice of restaurants and shops, its perfect. The huge Miromar Shopping Outlets is only 30 mins drive away, just off the I75 (Exit 123)

27/10/2016

We live only 30 minutes from the Best Western Plus Beach Resort, and as soon as we arrive to this beautiful location we immediately go into “stay-cation” mode. The picturesque views of the beach from their manicured lawn and lounge area can put a smile on anyone's face. Watching the beautiful sunsets over the ocean while relaxing in the pool cannot be put into words. While the views and location are absolutely amazing, it is the resort and its staff that keeps us coming back. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculate while every person working there is very friendly and always accommodating. Having the beach chairs and umbrella rentals from Holiday Water Sports as well as fun water activity options right on-site is extremely convenient. Their free breakfast is top notch, great coffee and the biscuits and gravy are a fan-favorite for my whole family. Can't say enough good things about this place and the people that make it the best spot to stay on Fort Myers Beach. Already looking forward to our next weekend getaway there. 5-star review for a 5-star resort!!

"Once Again -- Fabulous Stay at Ft. Myers Beach, FL!"

26/10/2016

We love Ft. Myers Beach, FL and particularly the best place to stay -- the Best Western Plus Beach Resort! Every room has an incredible view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico with its fluffy white sand and clear blue-green water. And, the Gulf water is warm enough for me to enjoy! The hotel is perfectly maintained, has lovely decor, is spotless indoor and out, provides a nice breakfast every day, has a terrific swimming pool, maintains gorgeous landscaping and provides beach/pool towels. The large area of palm trees and soft green grass provide a shaded place to either play shuffleboard or sit in one of the Adirondack chairs with a book or just being dazed by the beautiful view of the Gulf. Our shelling beach walks were quite successful as well! We just returned home with a box of lovely shells to share with our granddaughters! We will return again to this favorite place next year! We will want to see Coco again also -- 39-year-old parrot who speaks with everyone in the lobby!

We love this hotel -- feels like home. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Great views from this hotel -- sunsets are amazing. They have a great courtyard with comfortable chairs to enjoy the sunsets or relax anytime of the day. Comfortable King size bed. Like having the refrigerator and kitchen area in the room. Nice hotel breakfast with several options each day. Coco the bird is fun - greets you in the lobby. Location is prefect -- close enough to walk to shopping and to eat but far enough away to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.

Can't say enough about the view from our balcony! The suite is half kitchen and spacious living area with a comfy king size bed. All the furnishings are modern and the room was spotless.

We tacked 3 days at Fort Myers Beach onto an East Coast 'visiting friends' trip, and are we glad we did! We had no idea this was such a nice area, with a beautifully calm beach on the Gulf Coast. The Best Western is a very good value, with all rooms oceanfront. I cannot say enough about the staff - both their friendliness and their professionalism. I had made a special request, which they went OVERBOARD in accommodating. We had a room on the 4th floor and loved sitting on the balcony for our morning coffee. (The hotel has is 5 stories.) Families with young children were enjoying the ground floor, where the little ones could go right out onto the grass and play. Beach umbrella and chair rentals, plus water sports equipment, are available directly in front of the hotel, and you can easily walk to 'Times Square' - the little enclave with lots of restaurants and shops. The morning breakfast is very good (waffles, eggs, etc.). We hope to come back in the future!

We had booked our vacation on the eastern shore, when Hurrican Matthew decided to visit. Three day before arrival, we decided to head to the gulf, and were very glad we did. This hotel was outstanding, and was a great choice. Easy access to the beach, nice rooms, and friendly staff. Walking distance to the shops, and reasonable parking. We had two rooms, with four kids, and everyone had a great time. I would highly reccommend!

We stayed on the 5th floor. Room 510. Absolutely no issues. Loved the balcony. Nice size - not the typical size. Larger then most. The hotel sits directly on the beach with every room looking over the Gulf of Mexico. The street side is quiet as well. Within walking distance of the small town. About a 1/2 mile. Recommend this hotel, it probably the best one in the area. The small town has some shopping and places to eat. A very relaxing place to get away.

09/10/2016

We stayed for 4 nights at the Best Western on Fort Myers Beach and I have to say, our visit was perfect. We flew in to Southwest Regional Airport in Ft Myers and the hotel is about a half hr from the airport. The hotel is directly on the beach with very pretty grounds and was very clean and quiet. The staff (and CoCo the parrot) were always very pleasant and always had a smile and a hello for us. Our room with a king sized bed was spacious, with a kitchenette and refrigerator. The bathroom was also a decent size with a tub/shower. We had a beautiful view of the palm trees, beach, and Gulf of Mexico from our private balcony on the 4th floor!!! They offered breakfast every morning, with hot and cold choices, and it was more than enough to get our day started. Nice clean pool, and gorgeous grounds...palm trees and flowers and access to the beach a few steps from the building. Beach chairs and umbrellas were available to rent from a stand on the beach in front of the property. (You can also rent jet skis and parasailing from the same location) This hotel is in a perfect location too. Just a short walk down the beach and you are at Times Square, a quaint little place with restaurants and bars, ice cream shops, pizza etc. Friendly locals, and friendly travelers too. You can't ask for a better place to stay!! We completely enjoyed our stay and hated to leave to return to work in the big city. Best Western on Fort Myers Beach is our new favorite place, and we honestly can't wait to return!!!

After staying at a few of the other big hotels on Fort Myers Beach, this is by far my familie's favorite place to stay. My wife how clean the entire site is and the well shaded grassy lawn that surrounds the property. The kids love the playground, pool, beach, and lawn to play in. I like that the hotel is short walk to all the nightlife, but just far enough away to be i it's own relaxing little world. Also, everyone loves the breakfast. There are so many choices, we eat twice. Once early before paddling/surfing and once after we return. The Key West Express passes by and throws out surfable wakes almost every day. Finally, all the staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here.

This was our third visit to this hotel (first in 2009) and the experience was just as good. The hotel is next to the beach and a 5min walk to the Pier and centre. All rooms have a balcony with stunning views overlooking the beach. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed with cooking facilities, Inc microwave and large fridge freezer. Self catering wouldn't be a problem. Breakfasts are good and eating outside is an option. Staff are very friendly. Talked to other guests when we were there and their opinion was the same as ours. We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we were going to Ft Myers Beach. Oh and can't forget to give Coco the parrot a mention.

05/10/2016

My family and I just got back from our first trip to Ft Myers Beach @the Best Western Plus.This hotel is by far one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Upon arrival I noticed how clean the Grounds were, No garbage or debris anywhere. The hotel lobby is very clean and nice.The staff was polite and accommodating. Breakfast consist of Eggs,biscuits. Sausage ham or bacon,you can have yogurt or fresh fruit.They have pastries or English muffins, raisin bread,dry cereal of 3or 4 kinds.Juice is Apple, orange or cranberry-which I like.Coffee is 24/7. Some reviews said about how small the breakfast area is, Remember it's a hotel -NOT a catering hall. You can sit outside at one of there tables and look out at the Gulf of Mexico and watch the boats, and Pelicans go by. You can rent beach chairs from the guy who runs the jet skis and he can help you with making reservations for Dolphin tour, Parasailing-he's right on the beach. I suggest to get a room facing the gulf-you won't be disappointed. They do have a cottage that runs about 459.00 per night, I believe it's two bedrooms- in case you need more space. I recommend you walk down to Time Square, they have Bar restaurants, and a Pizzeria, Ice cream Parlor-There are other restaurants on San Carlos Blvd,The hotel has a salt water pool-exceptionally clean. You can get pool towels located in the Lobby, right next to the Cutest bird in the world Coco-! This hotel is only 30 minutes from South west Florida international airport. The pic-are acccurate, and I will add mine.Will definitely go back!

Morning breakfasts are well prepared and varied. They have very nice people at the front desk and working everywhere on maintaining the landscape, pool and other facilities. It's located very close to the "action", restaurants, fishing pier, etc. And you'll fall in love with "Coco" their talkative parrot. What a cutie!.

This is a 5 star hotel with sweet amenities and a caring staff! Beautiful sunsets on a beautiful beach! Close to restaurants and nightlife without being on top of it. All within walking distance. Love walking the beautiful beach.

We were happy that this hotel has all rooms facing the ocean. The view was nice, but a bit distant though from the ocean. The small rooms have been updated, however, there is a very strong musty/mildew smell- and not just in our room. Friends staying with us had the same issue. The breakfast was good, and well maintained. The pool was clean, and we enjoyed it until a group of people- who did not appear to be staying at the hotel- decided to have a party. Glass bottles of beer were lined up along the side of the pool, and their loud obnoxious rude behavior continued until the pool shut down at dusk. I don't understand why the hotel allowed this to go on for 2 hours. For the price- about $200 a night, I would expect far better. We have visited Fort Myers Beach many times, and probably would not stay at this hotel again.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are very unhappy to hear this, we do not allow glass of any kind at the pool nor do we allow people who are not staying with us on our property, guest only. We are sorry this happened and we will keep a closer monitor on it.

First time at Best WESTERN HOTEL. Great location, Hotel was so clean. Staff fantastic. Upgraded us and was always quick to help us with requests. Rollaway bed, extra towels, blankets etc. Free breakfast great. Newspapers free. Air conditioner blows loudly but got use to it. Nice clean pool and of course the beautiful beach. Close enough to walk into town for dinner. Will definitely return.

"Excellent location by the beach, quiet aera"

06/09/2016

Stayed in late 2015 with my wife at this hotel. We found the location to be very good by the beach, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants in Fort Myers Beach, so no parking nightmare to find a spot. Beach is nice, you can also walk to the Pier. Quiet aera of Ft Myers otherwise it can be packed and noisy at night. Room was on 3rd floor (not on the top as expected), with a good king bed. Not a big room but ok for us 2. The bathroom was good too and there was a kitchen with big fridge to store all your drinks and other stuffs. The breakfast room was small and with a lot of people so we mostly ended up in the garden or in our balcony. Free parking and free wifi also provided. If the price is right (which is usually high at Christmas time), we will be back as we really liked the pool aera and the beach aera. Perfect for beach vacation.

"Older property, but prime beachfront location"

04/09/2016

All oceanfront rooms in this older, but fairly well kept property. Highlight is the beautiful beachfront with very good shelling (better than Captiva/Sanibel) but bring aqua socks as you can cut your feet very easily from the broken shells. Room was on the small side and air conditioning unit was very loud, but TV had a neat low germ remote control. Towels were very soft, but only three were supplied for a family of four, but shower pressure was very good. Internet was very slow, but better in the lobby. Breakfast area was small, but plenty of seating could be found outside. Very good hot beverage dispenser which could be accessed 24 hours a day which included cafe latte, espresso, cappuccino, coffee and decaf. Lobby had a parrot named Coco which children always enjoyed. Rich at the front desk was very nice and very helpful. Tip: numerous sand dollars can be found in the water right in front of the property.

The note in the dish closet while thankfully honest left us wishing for paper cups ( the note stated that dishware is cleaned but not to the restaurant or food service standards as set forth by State of Florida Balcony looked out into gulf and was beautiful.

Very nice hotel, excellent view, excellent area, a walk away from all the restaurants at the pier, live music at night, super nice. Try to ask for a room above 2nd floor, otherwise you hear all the people at the pool. The free breakfast is very complete try to go early around 9 a good hour, not too full, they refill very often the trays, so you will be satisfied. Beach is super quiet to relax. The hotel do not offer chairs and umbrellas, so you have to purchase at the beach, I think the cost was around $25 for a full day until 6pm or you can take your own of course, the hotel do provide towels for the beach. Me and my partner like very much we are returning this year too :-)

We visited in April, the weather was gorgeous and the accommodations were great. The room was on the ground floor so it was a bit stuffy, but you can't beat walking straight out to the beach. We stayed in a suite with separate living/ bedroom areas and the space was just enough. We had 4 people two adults two teens. We had an issue with the TV, we called the front desk, they sent someone right away and problem was resolved. The breakfast that was served daily was a treat, more then adequate, could not have done any better going out. Hotel was located walking distance from so many shops and restaurants and parasailing was available right outside the hotel. Beach was clean. Easy to make day trips to Sanibel and Captiva for great shelling. Wallmart was also close so purchasing a cheap beach chair instead of paying daily rates for chairs was worth it for us. We would definitely return.

"Wi-Fi Nightmare"

17/08/2016

The hotel was generally great - clean, nice, modern rooms, kind staff, clean hotel, and good hot breakfast. But if you have a need for Wi-Fi, be prepared to be disappointed. They are having obvious issues around the rooms, as well as in the common area (pool, lawn, etc.) and the Wi-Fi works for no more than 5 minutes at a time. My Sprint service was sketchy, at best, so not having Wi-Fi to fall back on was very disappointing. I spoke with the hotel management and they assured me "everything was fine", but, I have a technological background and know for a fact they are having serious repeater issues across the hotel. With that said...... the manager knocked off at entire night's charge due to the inconvenience, so, this certainly went a long way towards making up for the issue. The beach front was awesome, clean, and not overly crowded. I'd definitely stay again if visiting Fort Myers Beach in the future!

We went for my birthday and it was perfect. We got there early, no problem, our room was ready. They had a discounted price, it was automatically reduced from our bill. Jeff was more then helpful with all our questions. The room was nice and clean, the a/c was awesome-really cold-we Floridians like our room extra cold at night! There was a big fridge and a kichenette in the room. The beds were ok, but we should have requested a king room. The toiletries were very good, loved them so much took leftovers home. Breakfast was ... mediocre, but not any worse than others. The view was great, the beach was nice, the pool was warm ... can you ask for more? Well, yes, the people were the nicest. On checkout we had Rich, and he explained the bill, as well as the pet policy-we want to go back with out dogs nex time! All and all, the best mini-vacation in a long time!

I did a lot of browsing looking for a place to stay on the Gulf. I liked what I read and saw about this resort. For the price, I was very satisfied. I wouldn't call it a true resort but the staff was extremely accommodating, the sand wqs fairy white, and breakfast was above average. Hotel staff gave us a 5th floor room upon request so trees wouldn't block view of the water. Beach property provides a nice grass area shaded by beautiful palm trees. Kitchenette was convenient and balcony pleasant. On a slighty neg side...water was brownish (not the clear water is was expecting) but proximity to wind, palm trees and sand and the touristy area down by the pier was a plus. Pool was extremely warm...too warm. Road construction is on going in Ft Myers Beach which effects the appearance a bit but traffic flowed fine.

This hotel is in the perfect location, walking distance to all the shops & restaurants. I booked a suite which has 2x King beds and a kitchen/lounge the room is a great size with a balcony, our room is 219, on the second floor but it's one of the end rooms, so doesn't overlook the pool , so is very quiet. Will definitely stay here again. I've included a view from our balcony.

As a family of 6 we booked their 2 bed/2 bath suite on the 3rd floor. Came with full kitchen, lounge area and an oversized balcony overlooking white sand beaches and the ocean. A piece of paradise. It has a nice big pool and well tended gardens with seating. For me the only downside if there was one was the "hot breakfast" that was included in our stay. We didn't even bother with it on day 2. Apart from that its a great hotel in a fabulous location.

Stayed here with family for two nights after flying from UK to Miami en-route to our 14 night break in Disney. It was nothing short of perfect.

Many beach sports and rentals on offer and the lad Gary who manages the beach rentals was great. Kids done jet skiing and paddle boarding for first time and he explained things very well. Breakfast and staff at the hotel also great and would have no hesitation coming back for a longer stay.

Located on the beach at Fort Myres if offered the best for beach location and nr by resurants. The hotel offered ample free parking and never had any issues parking at anytime. The reception area was very clean with welcoming staff. The room was on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the Gulf with stunning views. The room was clean with clean bedding and towels 0nly issue was that the shower was over the bath and the bathroom was a little small the room also had cooking facillities with electric hob and microwave so if you were staying on budget or preferred to keep the cost by cooking then no problem,we had breakfast included which was very congested in the mornings but I suppose everyone coped. The hotel had no resturant for dinner. The pool was a aduquate size but on occations was a little congested but you would expect that. The hotel had a lawn area at beach side with shade wich was relaxing and needless to say a few strides away from white sands for walking to the pier etc. Would be stay at the Best Western Plus ? yes if we were returning to Fort Myres for sure.

Overall the Room was very nice. The Hotel Lobby and all areas of Hotel were clean and very nice. Our room had a funky smell in it like if it was mildew and my sisters room smelled a little moisture as well, but we lit some candles and then it was fine. It was very comfortable and the staff was great. The only thing we did not like was that the Pool would close very early and the gentleman that attends the pool kicked everyone out of the pool area when people were enjoying the sunset by lounging on the pools. There is not much to do on the premises and the pool was a nice relaxing feature but as soon as the sun started going down he kicked everyone out. The pool should remain open a little longer. It is heated for a reason and it would have been nice to relax in the pool a little longer. Otherwise the Hotel is a perfect place for a family get together, great price, nice safe environment and rooms are nice. and best of all the AC blows is amazingly cold which was a plus. No problems with it. We would definitely stay again.

All hotel rooms has a lovely view of the beach and a nice garden to have breakfast in. The hotel is clean and friendly staff, but the rooms would be better with an update on the bathrooms. The aircondition is very loud both o the balcony and inside the rooms. Big rooms and we where 5 people in the room and that was no problem, but there where only two chairs on the balcony. Would be nice with 4 chairs and a bigger table on the balcony. Good american breakfast with bacon and scramle eggs some days. If we go back to Fort Myers Beach we will book this hotel again

This was a mini reunion with family and we chose the hotel because of the ratings here and also the friendliness of the staff when we called. They assured us we would be able to have rooms next to our family however when we checked in they said they could not accommodate that. I know a lot of hotels say they can't promise anything but that is an important thing when you haven't seen family in a year or more. Other than that, this hotel is very clean, great staff, very comfortable and the beach was very clean and pretty. Coco, the talking parrot, was an awesome addition to the experience. We loved talking to him in the morning. The free breakfast was great. If you don't need any special room accommodations this is a great choice if you visit Ft. Myers.

30/07/2016

This was our first visit to Florida's southwest coast so we were excited to be going somewhere new, but a bit apprehensive as we weren't exactly sure what to expect. We were looking for a slower paced trip and that's exactly what it turned out to be. Best Western Plus Beach Resort was great! Everything looked as advertised on the internet. We had a friendly greeting upon arrival and departure. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. Our room was on the third floor overlooking palms and the beach. The room was very clean and had everything we needed including a small kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and we slept well without interruption from outside noise. The free breakfast was beneficial as you didn't have to worry about buying groceries or going out each morning. Breakfast items included waffles, bagels, an assortment of pastries, cereals both hot and cold, yogurt, and every day they had eggs. They alternated bacon and sausage and a different bread which was either a small croissant or biscuits with gravy. A variety of juices were offered, and probably milk, but I didn't check because I'm lactose intolerant. The coffee machine was spectacular! You could choose from lattes, cappuccinos, espresso or regular coffee and the coffee was delicious. I am picky about coffee as I don't like a strong, acidic aftertaste, but this coffee was smooth. Also, coffee and tea are available 24 hours a day. The hotel had adequate parking, a nice pool with plenty of lounge chairs, and is right on the beach. I noted this hotel is pet friendly, and was a bit apprehensive that it may be a problem, but the few animals we encountered were all well behaved. The location of the hotel is good in that it is close to, but not right on top of, restaurants and shopping. It's an easy walk from the hotel if you are up to it. The only negative we encountered was that once I was in the restroom with an employee that worked in the breakfast area and I was shocked that she left the restroom without washing her hands. I must say I was appalled that this person was working with food, but that type of thing can happen at any hotel and you would never know unless you actually witnessed it. We enjoyed the slowed pace of Ft. Myers Beach during July and would definitely stay at this hotel when we visit again.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. We happy that you had an excellent time at our property. We had a meeting with the Breakfast staff about the issue you spoke off. They are supposed to wash their hands while in the restroom and then again in the kitchen before they handle any food. This problem is resolved. Thanks again for your business.

Very friendly hotel. Breakfast was nice everyday. Easy walk to shops and several dinning options. The beds were very uncomfortable. The pool closed too early. Rooms were very clean and everything was new and looked well taken care of. I would stay here again for sure.

We have visited this wonderful hotel since 1990 and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is one of the friendliest anywhere and will go out of their way to make your stay as perfect as possible. The close location to Time Square is a bonus as it is just a short walk uptown. Each room faces the Gulf and the sunsets are nothing short of fabulous! This is a treasure of a hotel. Check out their website for some super photos of the property.

I like this hotel, because all the rooms are beachfront and also you can take your pet with you. The only thing that I didn't like was the small area that they have for breakfast, is so crowded. Otherwise is a nice environment with nice people working there.

Booked on the strength of the previous reviews on Tripadvisor. They are on the whole accurate. The hotel is in a great location with fab views of the beach andsea. Rooms large, clean and modern. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, good quality food. Was expensive compared to other hotels on the beach but worth it. Couldn't really fault it.

"Beautiful wedding location"

We read a review of this hotel last year where a couple eloped and were married on the beach outside the Best Western Plus. We decided that would be ideal for us! We phoned Rich at reception who helped us organise everything, and put us in touch with Betty, an officiator. Everything was perect, right down to the beautiful towel swans that Chelley, the room maid, had arranged for us, red carnations and candles and a bottle of champagne our friends had ordered for us sitting waiting on ice. We had the most amazing ceremony on the beach, followed by food and drinks in a local bar. The hotel staff were amazing, friendly, and very helpful. The room was perfect, clean and spacious, and very cool with the A/C on at night. We can't thank Rich and the staff enough for making our stay and wedding so special, We would recommend this hotel to anyone and hope to be back soon.

This Best Western is everything thT it says; Awesome on all levels, some places show pictures of what you will be getting until you get there, and it is nothing like the pictures. This Best Western is everything it shows you and more. We walked by a few places we saw online, and they were stink holes, small run down not on beach. We had a room on the top floor at the corner. We could wake up early, go on the balcony and watch the Sun rise on one side and then turn around and watch the moon set on the other. In the evening we would watch the sun set and the moon rise. You cannot get that view in the city, Unbelievable and cost friendly for the price. Breakfast in the morning was like going to high end all U can each buffet, just about everything you need to get your day started right, ONLY at the Best Western. Thank you Mr. Tim for making our 10 yr Anniversary a very memorable one. Your staff were all pleasant and had an answer for all question, there recommendations were all on point. No need for a car, as you can contact hotel and they put us in touch with a driver, who picked us up in a Limosine (felt like superstars) the driver even stopped at the grocery store for necessities (Beer). The driver even said if he had known he would have had cold beer waiting in limo. Everything is in walking distance, not very for away, but in a quite area not noisy, quite and peaceful Would recommend to everyone looking for something close to beach, and do not have to cross street and worry about cars flying by. Will see you in fall are next year. Thanks again

"Amazing Hidden Gem in Fort Myers Beach"

08/07/2016

My husband and I are from Washington, DC area and we decided to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary at Florida's Gulf Coast and we discovered a hidden gem with the Best Western Beach Plus Resort on Fort Myers Beach. We ended up staying here and had one of the most amazing vacation experiences of our lives! The hotel was newly renovated, clean and located directly on the beach! Every morning there was a fresh hot breakfast (not just the continental kind- but hot eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit and juice among other delicious breakfast items). We enjoyed playing shuffleboard on the property! Coco the talking bird greeted us every morning! The staff was excellent, catering to our every need and offering great suggestions to local restaurants, bars and shopping. An added bonus is that this hotel is located about a block and a half away from "downtown" Fort Myers Beach Town Square. The hotel itself, again,is located directly on the beach. Each room has an oceanfront view. There is also a heated pool onsite, which is an added bonus. Plus, just steps from the hotel on the beach is Holiday Rentals: They offer umbrella & chairs services including all the water sports you can imagine: Jet Skis, Banana Boats, Paddle Boarding, Aqua Cycles,Parasailing, etc... In addition, the front desk staff is always more then happy to let you know about any "Pirate" Cruises & "Sunset" cruises as well as other activities offered near by the Best Western Beach Plus Resort. I would highly recommend staying at this nice, clean hotel and we like to think of it as our home away from home. In fact, we already have our reservations booked for next year to return to this fantastic hotel resort oasis on the beach!

We love this hotel, the staff are very friendly, the rooms are great. The location is fantastic, the reason it's not getting a poor rating is because of the pet policy. There are dogs EVERYWHERE! I'm not a dog hater. This was ridiculous. Dogs were at breakfast, they were in the elevators, on balconies, there was constant barking, inside and out. The owners let the dogs pee/poop outside without cleaning it up. I watched as one owner allowed her dog to pee on another guests beach chair! The dogs were even swimming in the POOL!!!! When I checked out I told the young lady at the front desk how disappointed I was and her response was if they didn't accept pets they would lose business. Well, she's right they are losing business, mine. We'll be staying down the street next year.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We did have more dogs than usual this past weekend but even worse was the disrespectful pet owners. Hopefully by going up on the nightly rate for pets will keep more of them home. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

We found this hotel after quite an extensive search of places in the Ft. Myers Beach area. We thought the room rate was great especially since the included breakfast beats any other breakfast out there. The coffee/cappuccino machine was available 24/7 and was top of the line. We loved being so close to walk to Times Square and restaurants. Would have given Excellent if we had same type of room a few floors up and if Wi-Fi was good.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort during the week of June 13th for three nights. This was our second time here. I gave it an A+ the last time we stayed and I have to say A+ again. Who needs a fancy resort when you have it all here. A+ qualities: friendly helpful staff, clean, beach view, private balconies, pet friendly, free buffet breakfast, sparkling pool, quiet and relaxing private beach, short walk to pier, shops and dining. Did I mention free parking and no hidden fees that some fancy resorts charge. This will always be our resort to go to when we want a get away close to home.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us again. Repeat guests are the best. The other properties that charge for parking and resort fees gives you the nickel and dime feeling and that they really do not care about their guests or if they will ever return. No hidden fees here. Thanks again.

We did enjoy walking a couple of blocks along the beach to the Main Street with shops and restaurants.

The rooms were really small but clean & comfortable. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was included & it was really good. We had an ocean front room but of course a big old palm tree blocked our view of the water. There was only 1 elevator working & thank goodness it was down at the end where we were staying. The elevators were hot & had no air conditioning. The lights in the hallways at night were very dim & I wouldn't want to be in the hallway by myself. The elevator that was not working was out of order the whole week that we were there.The air conditioning was right by the bed & it blew air in my face all night long. It was either hot or chilly in the room. We could never get a happy medium. I would stay here again just because I liked that we could go thru the lobby & walk right out on the beach. They rented umbrellas & chairs on the beach.

22/06/2016

This hotel has a lot to offer. The view is really nice - though try to the upper floors if you want a less obstructed view of the Gulph. We had a room on the second floor and our view of the Gulph was somewhat blocked by palm tress, but we didn't mind as they were pretty as well. There was also a family reunion at the hotel so they mainly congregated in the outside courtyard area and we could hear a great deal of their chatter. It was nice that they were having a great time - just wish we were a bit higher and away from the crowd. There also were a great deal of children - it is ideal for families as you are right on the beach, easy access to the pool and lots for kids to do - there was even a small swing set on the grounds. However, we were a couple that left our kids at home to get away and just didn't anticipate the business of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was nice but seating was limited inside and the line took a good bit to get through. The room was lovely. It had a nice kitchen area with fridge and microwave. The view was also nice. The bed was good but the pillow protectors were a bit on the loud side and made a good deal of noise as you moved around.... The best thing about this hotel though is the staff. They were extremely friendly and very helpful! We would stay here again if we are bringing our kids.... but would probably look elsewhere if getting away as a couple. This is by no means the fault of the hotel.... just could have been the timing of when we went.

Hotel is great - fantastic location, decent breakfast. Spent the night at this hotel last weekend and had a room on the first floor - right outside of the pool. (Room 105) Absolutely no view of the beach and sitting outside wasn't really an option considering there was 40+ people in the pool. The noise level was annoying, but nothing overwhelming. With that being said, the location is close and convenient to Times Square. Breakfast had several options (most of the staples - meat, eggs, waffles, yogurt, etc). The A/C in our room was moody, I mentioned it to the staff at checkout. Would definitely stay here again though.

This hotel is a nice choice for families staying at the beach in Ft. Myers. It is away from the hustle and bustle , but close enough to walk if you wanted to. Rooms were a little small, but for a weekend were fine. Only one pool, which was super crowded, and no hot tub. There are a few outside tables for picnics and some swings. All rooms are ocean front with a balcony or porch if on 1st floor. 2 chairs and a small table. We got one on the end, which was perfect. It had a kitchen with full fridge, stove, sink, dishes, playes, utensils, and whatever you need. Plenty of 7 11s around. Stay includes breakfast, which was the best we've had at similar venues like Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn, Country Inn and Suites, etc. Server was very friendly and pleasant. There is a parrot in lobby, and the kids loved that. Best of all, they had coffee, espresso, cappuccino and cafe latte available 24 hrs. For our family, that was a life saver. Floors are tile. There is a broom and dustpan to take care of sand. We also put a towel by the front door. Air wasn't working, but maintenance came immediately and fixed it. Got a roll away, because fold out couch only fit one. You can rent 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella for less than $30, 9-5. Also, paddleboard, catamaran, and jet ski rentals right there. Had to empty our own trash, which was weird, but overall a great stay.

We stayed here a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it!! The room was very modern and right on the beach. They had a wonderful complementary breakfast bar which is included in the room fee! We were very happy with the place.We walked right down the beach to times square where there was a band playing and lots of restaurants. Everything is within walking distance. I would recomend this place highly!!!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
"Beautiful and scenic" Your recommendation is an honor. Thanks for staying with us a writing a review. Park and walk to everything is perfect. The North end of the island has less traffic and we do not have the road construction to the south. Thanks again.

Great place for a family to stay . It was right on the beach which made it very nice and had a great pool. The free breakfast was a bonus and the location was excellent. You could walk to the pier and town but the beach area felt very private

"Very nice beach hotel" Our location on the North end of the island is perfect, less traffic, less people and a more of relaxed atmosphere however you can walk to all the attractions. Thank you for staying with us.

I stayed with my girlfriend for 4 nights during this past Memorial Day Weekend. The room had ample space and had an AMAZING view of the beach. My understanding is that every room is oceanfront. The pool was relatively small for the size of the hotel but, similarly, offered a great view of the water. The pool is also heated, which is a plus for people looking to travel during the colder Florida months. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, and the resort was extremely clean. As for the beach, it was nice. The sand was pretty smooth and white and the water was clean. Even during Memorial Day weekend, the area of the beach in front of the hotel wasn't crowded at all. Feel free to bring your own beach chairs, as we did; otherwise, there are beach chairs (and umbrellas) that one can rent for the day. There's a breakfast that's included and is great--lots of choices. For dinner, we mostly walked over to Times Square, which is about a 5-minute walk from the hotel. I'd just note that restaurants and bars do close early (compared to, say, Miami or New York, where I split most of my time), so go out for dinner and/or drinks earlish. We did the jet skit dolphin tour (leaves from Pinkshell) and a sunset cruise while we were there, and they were both a lot of fun. All around, our stay was wonderful. We will definitely go back.

Met every single expectation and exceeded most. A little more expensive but worth every penny! Beach front was great and the pool was a nice little area to relax. It was also nice to have access to chairs/umbrellas for rent right outside AND the ability to rent jet skis. Very short walk from the hotel to the main area, which makes it easy for going and wandering home at night. Very safe as well.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Yes, our location is great for family, no onsite bars but just far enough away to stroll down the beach to all the bars and restaurants. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you soon.

this place was the best manicured hotel on the beach with beautiful soft white sand and a clear shallow ocean front that you could go out a 100 yards and be up to your shoulders. The waves were very gentle and there were only small shells on this beach that were easy to avoid with your feet.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Yes, it is a great beach for kids, and fun for all. We do our best to keep everything clean and in perfect working condition, being right on the beach is a challenge but we try to stay 1 step ahead. Thank you for staying with us, we hope you will be back.

We moved from the Outrigger to The Best Western Plus Beach Resort after 24 hours of arriving in Ft Myers and what a difference! The receptionist, Joy, could not have been more helpful and kind in finding us a lovely room with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Clean, tidy, spacious, free parking, beach towels, great breakfast, pool and less than 100 yards from the hotel gardens to the lonely warm sea! I would recommend this place to anyone, that's how happy both myself and my wife were with this place. Plus, it's close to the pier and the resort centre too!

Pros: Clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet & efficient ac, free breakfast that's really good, views, great beach, beautiful grounds, super friendly & professional staff. Less than 1/2 mile to shops and restaurants. Best part, I could bring my small dog. Did I mention it's clean? I'm picky and this is super clean and nice. Cons: There are none. Stop looking and book a room already.

I have to rave about this hotel, even tho I hate to give away the location of the best place to stay in Ft Myers Beach! This was our second stay at the Best Western Beach Resort. We were here 5 years ago and it was so perfect we decided to break our rule of not staying in the same place twice ( there are so many wonderful places to visit!) The hotel has a great free breakfast spread in the lobby every morning, just steps from the beach. Actually, there are no "steps" at all which makes it extra friendly for those who have ambulatory problems. The beach is private, and there are chairs and umbrellas available to rent. Between the beach and the hotel is a very nice shaded Grassy area complete with chairs, a swing set, a grill and a shuffleboard court. Great place to sit in the evening and watch the sunset. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms very comfortable, each with a private balcony. You can't find a better place to stay. Enjoy!

Love this hotel! My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in room 415. Awesome view of the ocean!! Breakfast in the lobby each morning had plenty of options to choose from and was very good. This hotel is a great location, within walking distance to just about anything. Hotel rooms were promptly cleaned after we left each morning. There are beach chairs/umbrellas available to rent each day, for about $20 - but we just took towels out and laid on those in the sand. The beach felt nice and private/quieter than other resorts. We noticed there was someone watching the parking lot every day, which was nice. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with arrival and checkout. Will definitely be back again on our next visit to Fort Myers Beach!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
"Great Location, Great Service!" Yes the North end of the island is much more relaxed but you can still walk to all the restaurants and shops.

The best thing about this hotel is that it's right by the beach and all the rooms are ocean view. Plus you get nice free breakfast. However, the hotel doesn't have a bar and that was cons for us. Also, the shezlongs at the beach are not free (we thought they are free since they were in the pictures of the hotel). You have to pay $28 to rent them for a day. Other than that everything was good.

This is a place we have stayed many times in the past. If you are going to a beach this is the place to go. The resort is right on the beach and all rooms face the ocean. Palm trees provide a lot of shade for the grassy areas with lawn chairs. The pool always feels great and refreshing. Housekeeping kept us supplied in an abundance of towels which we appreciated very much. I love the tiled floors because of all the water and sand. All the rooms have kitchenettes. The breakfast was excellent and was changed daily for the hot food. Some of the hot items were a variety of eggs, sausages (link and patties), potatoes, biscuits, gravy, waffles, and bacon. We booked late so we didn't get the two bedroom we really wanted. Also a little miscommunication on the room we booked. Wasn't the same as described on the phone, but again, we did book late. I normally book at least 6 months in advance and would suggest that depending on what you want, the length of your stay, and time of the year. Cannot beat this resort for a wonderful beach experience. We will be back, probably next year.

This property is exceptionally clean and in a fantastic location! Our 5th floor standard room was very tidy and well-appointed for two people. The balcony was a nice size with two chairs and small table to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Parties with more than two people may want to consider a suite. The common areas inside and out were also very clean and attended to by staff throughout the day. There are plenty of nice sitting areas with sun and shade to enjoy the surroundings. The expanded continental breakfast was an A+ with a wide variety of simple breakfast foods to choose from. All items were tasty and at appropriate temperature and well-stocked throughout breakfast service. The staff in this area did a phenomenal job! FYI, the coffee machine is available for use 24/7. The pool deck and pool are basic but more than adequate and provides a beautiful view of the beach. Water temperature was on the warm side but still refreshing. Again, cleanliness was the reoccurring theme. The beach itself is the cleanest Florida beach I have seen. White sugary sand that never burned the feet. It was combed every morning and excellent for finding beautiful, albeit small, shells. The wildlife was ample and we even saw dolphins two days when there was light boat traffic. The water itself seemed murky a couple of days and seaweed washed ashore but that is Mother Nature's doing. If you arrive by car, bring along your beach chairs. We rented chairs and umbrella from the on-site vendor and they were comfortable. Note to sun worshippers: the chairs do not fully recline. However, chaise style loungers are available for rent for a slight additional charge. Many reviewers note that there is no on-site restaurant or bar. I decided to view this as a plus as it keeps non-guests from visiting the property. There is plenty to choose from at Times Square which is a five minute walk from the hotel. The clientele was a nice mix of all family types and the mood was relaxed and laid-back. All staff that I interacted with were friendly and helpful. Their bosses should be proud! I am already looking forward to planning a return visit!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
"Slice of Paradise" Thank you so much for the great review and for staying with us. We agree with you about the bar, it would be nice but it would change the relaxed family atmosphere at the property. We just don not want to turn onto a bar with hotel rooms for incidental revenue like a few other properties on the beach. Just a short walk to restaurants and shops is always nice. We hope to see you in the future.

15/05/2016

Once again, Tripadvisor steered me to a perfect vacation location. I won't lie, I was a bit nervous about what to expect from a *Best Western*, but this location is certainly a PLUS. We stayed in room 101, a junior suite with two full-size beds on the end of the first floor. We were able to walk right out our door and onto the gorgeous white beach. We walked about a mile each direction down the shoreline, and we decicded that the section of the beach at this hotel is the best section. As we walked north, there was a lot more seaweed on the shore ... and south, a lot more people. We had the perfect mix of beauty and peacefulness. It was so nice to have our own chairs and umbrella (and be able to charge them to our room) Also, the location of this resort in Forty Myers Beach itself is perfection ... it is just far enough off the main strip to be quiet, but close enough to walk to dinner every night. Also, access to leave the island to go on day trips to Fort Myers, Sanibel or Captiva is so convenient (we drove all the way south on the island and there was lots of road construction ... no construction pain here). Beach towels, breakfast, and amazing recommendations for meals (including some coupons & discounts). We were thrilled with our stay.

This hotel is right on the beach and in a great location - could walk to Times Square - where you can walk on board walk and have a drink or dinner right on the water. The only complaints are the bed was too firm for me and the shower head was not adjustable, the water spit out and hurt when hit the skin; not a good shower at all in our room. Heated pool was nice and beach is right there - good view from balcony!

"Excellent Option for Ft. Myers Beach"

5
12/05/2016

This hotel, located on the island of Ft. Myers Beach was FABULOUS for the price and perfect for couples and families. It is an easy walk to town, with its bars, restaurants and shops - but far enough away to offer a quiet, uncrowded beachfront. All rooms have an "oceanfront" view and, OH MY, what a view it is! The hotel's landscaping and palm trees offer a measure of privacy from the gaze of beachcombers, and it was delightful to sit on the balcony (in my nightie!) and drink my coffee every morning, hearing the ocean's siren song. We rented chairs and umbrellas just steps from the water, and swam in both the gulf and the pool every day. The pool is immaculate. Both lobby and rooms have been tastefully remodeled, and each unit has a full refrigerator and kitchenette stocked with all necessary dinnerware, pots, etc. There is also a beachside grill and picnic area for guest use, shuffleboard and a swing set. All facilities are very well-kept, and it's evident that the staff takes pride in the facility. The only (minor) drawback is the breakfast seating area, which is cramped and small for the number of rooms. Breakfast hours should start earlier, to help alleviate. This location just cannot be beat. Fantastic for families!

You can rent umbrellas and chairs on the beach. I loved staying in this area of Ft Myers, you were close enough to walk to the restaurants and shops and yet far enough away from the beach crowd ! You are about 40 minutes from Sanibel/Captiva Island. I would HIGHLY recommend this Best Western to anyone.. Only one negative, beds were a bit firm for us.

We had never been to Fort Myers Beach and picked this based on previous reviews and the location. We were not disappointed! For us this was in the perfect spot. It was less then 10 minutes walking to the pier and all the shops and restaurants. The beach in front of the hotel was also a little quieter than the other places that were closer to the pier and the public parking. The staff were all pleasant and professional and the room was a nice size. We will definitely be back next year!

We arrived at the hotel late due to our flight. I noticed immediately how clean and nice the lobby was and the woman who checked us in was very friendly. Our room was on the third floor which was perfect and off to the side so quiet. Easy steps (outside) or elevator up. The room was very plainly furnished but had a microwave, coffee maker, full sized refrigerator, oven top and all utensils, plates, glasses and pans if you want to cook or reheat food. There was a small in room safe that could easily hold my ipad. The room were not large but there was a small kitchen pennisula to sit at and one chair by the glass sliding door and balcony. The view is beautiful since the hotel is right on Ft Myers Beach and an easy walk to wonderful restaurants and shops. We just fell in love with the area. The hotel has a pool which at times was overrun with kids jumping into forcing the non-parent adults over to one side. Luckily their antics didnt last long as they and their parents move on about an hour or two! Breakfast was very good with waffles, pancakes that you make yourself,or scrambled eggs, sausage, various breads, fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals...They really had it all. There was a coffee machine with any kind of coffee you may desire. I have to add that this is perhaps the cleanest place we have ever stayed. The cleaning staff is superb. The room was always kept immaculate as were the eating area, bathrooms and all public areas. I only wish we were able to have a real late check out since our flight was so flight but they were busy so we changed in the bathrooms! This Best Western is quite the hidden gem and we would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is always clean, breakfast is great, and nothing beats the view and the fairly private beach. You are close enough to get to anything you would like to do and having Holiday Water Sports right outside the door is a plus. Very nice to have an umbrella and chairs waiting for you to relax in.

25/04/2016

We stayed one night. We wanted a beachfront hotel and a more laid back weekend then our recent Naples trip. This was perfect. Oceanfront room with 2 king beds and a kitchen. The Good - Location - within a 5 minute walk of restaurants/bars and on the beach - Room - 2 king beds, a pull out couch, kitchen, and beachfront. Awesome - Price - Great deal - Friendly staff - Parking - Really nice grounds - Very clean. I always saw someone cleaning up after guests. The not as good/could improve (can't say bad since liked the hotel a lot) - Beach chairs/umbrellas - these were for rent for $25 a day. Not sure if by the hotel. They should have some for guests but we brought our own since hotels don't seem to have beach chairs any more so no worry there. - They should add a beachfront cafe, bar, or small restaurant as the kitchen is great but the closest store in 10 min without bridge traffic. We just walked 5-10 minutes and brought a pizza back but it would be nice to have the option. If your not a walker delivery will work but limit options. Driving to the restaurants will be hard as parking is limited. Things to know - Most hotels here are like Inns and many have no food and no restaurant close. The location matters and this one is one of the closest to food. There is a free breakfast buffet as well. - There is only one elevator. We did not use it much as we prefer steps but we were on the second not 5th floor. The elevator took a while when we were getting bags upstairs so if this matters to you its an FYI. - The pool closes at dusk if this matters to you. - They have a grill area if you brought your own food to grill. - It appeared as though every room had a beach view.

"Best Western Plus Beach Hotel Review"

23/04/2016

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort the week of April 4 - 9. The hotel is located a short distance north of Times Square on Fort Myers Beach which allowed for comfortable walking distance to the Square, area shops and restaurants. We hired a taxi to take us from the airport to the hotel because we didn't want to drive in the area traffic which can be crowded, particularly approaching the beach area. The taxi fee for the two of us from the airport to hotel was $50.00. We were happy to find that we actually had no need for a car since everything we needed was in walking distance. We found all of the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful but would like to recognize Lindsey, Joy and Lynn for their exceptional service and great personalities. Our room was located on the fourth floor overlooking the swimming pool, beach and Gulf of Mexico. The room had a King bed, kitchenette with full size refrigerator, microwave, sink , eating utensils and two burner countertop range. Flat screen TV and WIFI were also included. The room was clean and housekeeping service was great. Free breakfast is served daily, a perk that we very much appreciated. The dining area is small so finding a place to sit can be a challenge but with a little patience was not an insurmountable problem. There are picnic tables available outdoors where some people took their breakfast but morning temperatures at this time of year are quite chilly. The hotel grounds are well kept and and the lawn area provided us a place to sit in the shade. WIFI was accessible throughout the grounds. We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort and hope to return in April of 2017.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
And we hope you return as well, thank you for the great review. We like to think our customer service is top notch, it is great to see the results on travel sites. Thank you for staying with us.

Not only is this hotel reasonably priced, it is also in a great location. The hotel is on Fort Myers Beach. All of the rooms overlook the pool and beach. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are clean. There are NO hidden fees.

Tim M, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
That's right, no hidden fees, it would be hard to generate a great repeat guest by nickle and diming people. Thank you for the nice review and for staying with us. We hope to see you soon.

The hotel is very nice. Balconies all face the ocean. Free breakfast but its a little tight in the room so eat early. Nice restaurants close by but parking is limited yet you can easily walk to them. Parking for one car per room. Nice parking lot. Jet ski rentals near by and beach chair/umbrella's also. Very nice pier within walking distance.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Yes, we all love our location as you only need a car to get here. It is awesome to get great reviews, even more so when we have the challenge of running 100% every night. Thank you and we hope we see you soon.

19/04/2016

This was our 11th or 12th year in a row of staying at this hotel. We will continue to stay here on our future trips. The staff are friendly, helpful, and so qualified. The rooms are lovely...each with a beach-front view. The pool, grounds, lobby, etc. are beautifully maintained. The breakfasts, included with the room, are very good....with a good combination of warm dishes as well as "to grab" items. The hotel is located within walking distance of the restaurants, shops, etc. So many of the staff have been there for a long time. That tells a lot about the hotel. Plus, for us, it's like "coming home" to see familiar/friendly faces. I can't say enough about how happy we are there.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
"coming home" Well certainly can not thank you enough for staying with us for 12 years. It is repeat guests like you that make this profession so rewarding. We treat our guests and staff like family so you are always welcome in your second home on Fort Myers Beach. As a family owned and operated property we strive to give our guests the best experience possible. its hard for the corporate owned and cookie cutter properties to offer the family feeling.

We've recently spent 5 nights at this hotel. It has such a perfect location and is somewhere my husband and I visited 20 years ago! Nothing has changed (apart from room decor). It has remained a quiet, clean, easy and unspoilt place. Not sure we want to wait another 20 years to go back!

We spent 4 glorious days in a Oceanview suite. The view from the balcony was so delightful we hardly wanted to leave.

The sunsets from our balcony so strongly called us back that we took decided to eat dinners early in order to be back for the shows.

15/04/2016

We were very pleased with hotel . We had 4th floor so balcony was nice and caught open breezes. Very easy in and out for driving. I liked the breakfast too. The coffee was good and hot. Staff very nice. The hotel is right on the beach about six blocks down from pier. Near shopping and restaurants. The current road construction on Estero Blvd shoes make navigating a bit hard. The only thing I would improve on is the pillows. I like mine thicker and with more density. We chose this over one on Sanibel and we're pleased we did.

We were lucky to return again for our 5th year and happy to say, not a lot has changed - which is exactly what we liked! From the minute we checked in till we left, we had friendly staff, a great room, a wonderful breakfast and beautiful weather. It's so peaceful and relaxing here and if you want something else, take a beach walk or street walk to Times Square, about 5 minutes away. We are always happy to have our corner room wish granted, a beautiful cleaned up room, a great variety at the complimentary breakfast and a nonstop ocean view. We want to say "thank you" for providing an atmosphere that leaves you smiling when you arrive, as well as when you leave. See you next year Rich and everyone else!

09/04/2016

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Here are my pros and cons:) Pros: The hotel is close to Times Square, you can just walk The pool area is nice and overlooks the ocean Very good breakfast every morning Has a grill and shuffleboard Ocean is very close to the hotel, you don't have to walk far Full size fridge in the room Most rooms overlook the ocean Cons: Pool closes when the sun goes down!! Not open at night! Pool opens super late at 9:00AM No outdoor hottub either!! Bummer:( Very busy beach - noisy during the day The standard rooms are super small!! I don't think I'd be able to stay here more then 5 nights! At least you spend a lot of time outside. Very rude older front desk lady - was arguing with mutiple people. All of the other front desk people were nice though:) We've stayed at the southern end of the island, closer to Bonita Springs and it is way quieter down that way. But if you like the action and want to walk to Times Square this may be the place for you. The biggest disappointment for me and my family was that the pool area closed soo early!! And that there was no hot tub!! It is also pitch black in the front of the hotel at night! You won't be playing night shuffleboard either. I also didn't like that there was no outdoor light to turn on out on the outdoor deck. Super dark!! This is a nice hotel, but very, very small rooms as well. For 4 people it's pretty tight!! We love the Ft. Myers area though and enjoyed ourselves there. We had a great vacation!!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and thank you for staying at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort. We tried to keep the pool open after dark but there were too many noise complaints from our guest. We continue to try for a permit to light up the beach side more but the turtles are affected by light when they come to lay eggs. Not to make any excuses as we do like to make every guest happy.

We stayed here for a week following a week in Orlando. This hotel has a great location with wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico. Very clean & well maintained. The rooms all have private balconies. They offer a good breakfast choice in the morning which you help yourself to. The hotel has a private beach where you need to pay for sun loungers, beach towels are provided. The hotel is within walking distance of Times Square restaurants & bars. We really enjoyed our stay.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review

Love this place. Clean as a whistle. Not just the rooms (which they are), but also the grounds and pool area are cleaned every day. Very convenient to the beach and if you have to run back up to your room it's not so big so that's easy. Safe for kids to run around. You can walk to dinner on the beach!!! Super convenient.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review. Its true at some of the larger resorts it can take 20 minutes to go to the room from the beach and back. Not having a bar that would attract people off the beach helps keep the property more relaxed and safe for families with kids. The good thing is you are in walking distance to restaurants and shops.

The location of this property is wonderful and the hotel is clean and comfortable. The beach view from the room was great and the room was well equipped with a full sized refrigerator. Breakfast was standard, but they had it well filled. And parking was easy too. Only complaint is that you are definitely paying for location especially during peak season.

I was wondering if this hotel would live up to all the great reviews and beautiful photos. I can honestly say it did! All the rooms are ocean view and on a beautiful & uncrowded section of the beach, rooms are very clean & updated, complimentary breakfast and 24 hr coffee machine (coffee is actually good), VERY friendly staff, quiet and not a loud party hotel, beds are comfortable, within walking distance of lots of great restaurants, etc. Great place! We definitely would stay here again.

We came down to Fort Myers to watch Spring Training baseball and vacation. We stayed at another hotel closer to Hammond Field but wanted to be by the beach after our game schedule was complete so we moved to this hotel for the last 2 days of our trip. It was fantastic. What a location! Beautiful setting and great breakfast. Staff was helpful with everything we needed. I booked online the day before we arrived as they had an opening so we took it. When I arrived they cleaned my room especially so I could get in early. They also lowered my price for the room without me even asking because I was a returning guest. Saved me $100. Only negative was traffic coming in to Fort Myers Beach was terribly backed up on the bridge. Something to consider if you have a schedule to keep. Not their fault though.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. It is a always wonderful to hear that our guests enjoyed their vacation at our property. You are correct the traffic is very bad this time of the year however being located on the north end takes off about an hour if you were staying on the south end of the island.

We stayed here the year before last and loved it! We wanted to stay again last year but no rooms available. We stayed at a large resort on FT Myers beach that had everything as it was the only place available and we still like the Best Western waaaaay better. We booked our room for this year last to be sure we could get in . Looking forward to another great stay at Best Western Plus. The only thing we don't care for was cigarette smoke from the ground level. We thought it was totally smoke free but that won't stop us from staying there as unfortunately you get that everywhere! Book it you'll be glad you didn't!

We just returned from a seven-day stay here and LOVED every minute. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's kept sparkling clean and organized. Breakfast is good. Free coffee available 24hrs. All rooms face the Gulf for spectacular sunsets from your private balcony. The kitchenette is extremely handy. If you want a quiet place to relax, this is it. As you head out the door toward the heated pool, shuffle board area or the white sandy beaches of Ft. Myers Beach, you'll be greeted by a 38-year-old Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot named Coco "Hello"!! We love Coco and you will too! It's only a 5-10 minute walk to the pier, shops, and restaurants and we already miss this place. We will definitely return to this gem of a hotel next season.

The hotel was great. It was clean and welcoming. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. The beach was gorgeous. We rented our umbrella/chairs for $23/day but they do give you a deal for a 3 day rental. luckily the resort is located on the north end of the island which was easier to get to with the traffic than heading south on the island. There is quite a bit of traffic to get on and around the island. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are staying on Ft Myers Beach.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It has a great pool & the beautiful beach is easy access. The breakfast was great & it was an easy walk to lots of fun restaurants and shops. The rooms with double beds are not queen so the beds were not as comfortable. There is a kitchen and that was great to have when you have a family with different time tables on eating. There is a grocery store about a 15 minute walk away. Be ready for awful traffic getting to the hotel! We did not drive anywhere after we arrived due to the awful traffic.

Very good place to stay for a low key atmosphere for Spring Break. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice to have a tasty hot breakfast each morning as a part of the hotel room price. If your a younger person it would probably not be the place for you to stay. It is an older crowd that stays at this place. Thus it is quieter!

It's a little congested coming in over the bridge but once you get there you can walk everywhere. We stayed in room 216 and the view was absolutely perfect! A more private view looking out to the beach with a little grassy area below which was also very nice with Adirondack chairs for sunset watching. Rooms and hotel were very clean . Staff very accommodating and breakfast was great !! Pool is a little small but very clean and those views to the ocean are great as well. Great temperature too! Highly recommend this hotel!

01/03/2016

This was a great hotel in many ways. We had never visited FMB before and decided to try it since our favorite place to stay in Sanibel was booked. I loved being right on the beach and having a balcony overlooking the yard/beach/pool. Room was nice with the mini-kitchen area, not a lot of room, but OK for the week. Very quiet - we rarely heard other guests. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good. Loved Coco - the resident parrot. Being within walking distance of many restaurants, Times Square, shops was fantastic. Several nights we walked on the beach before and/or after dinner to our restaurant and enjoyed the sunset along the way. What we didn't like about FMB was the lack of quality shops in the Times Square area. I'd say 95% of the shops were your tacky/touristy junk shops. That was disappointing. I would expect a few of those, but not so many. Traffic getting to FMB if we happened to drive off was horrible each day - we understand it is 'the season', but it made us think twice about driving over the bridge. I was happy to stay put at this beach more than my husband - it's a lovely beach, but not enough interesting shelling or beachcombing to keep him entertained, so he actually drove off FMB at least 5 times during our 8 days there. He would go to Sanibel (twice I went with him) for shelling and once he went on a Captiva Cruise (alone) and once we went to Caspersen Beach in Venice together (almost a 2 hour drive) looking for shark's teeth - just for something different to do. Bottom line is we would not come back to FMB, but not because we didn't like this hotel - it was very nice - but because we would rather be on Sanibel. The couple of suggestions that I would make on the room to improve it - provide paper towels and a scrubber. They provided dish washing liquid, but nothing to use to scrub or wash the dishes/silverware/cups with, so I just had to use my hands. Get rid of the down pillows and down comforters. Who needs comforters in Florida?! i had to roll them off the bed each night so I wouldn't overheat. All rooms are beach front! When we first checked in, our room wasn't ready and she said she could get us a different room, but that it had palm trees in front 'obstructing' the view. We loved it - it provided some much needed late afternoon shade and we were not over the pool, which we didn't want in the first place.

Thank you for the nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your room and the view. We will continue to upgrade our guest amenities and use all of our reviews to guide us in the right direction. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you soon.

"GREAT Ocean Views"

Wife and I stayed 4 nights on the top floor king bed. We arrived early around noon and did not expect our room to be ready. Staff was great allowing us to drop our bags securely in back office area so we could stroll down the beach to find some food. Staff took our cell # so they could call us when our room was ready. Pool area is nice with great views of the beach. We sat around the pool 3 afternoons. There are conveniently located restrooms to use off the lobby vs running back to your room. There were always plenty of lounge chairs to use. Pool is heated. There is a very good daily breakfast served off the lobby from 7-10. Nice feature especially for those with children. Our room was spacious and clean NO Complaints. Was nice having a fridge and microwave. There is a 7 Elevin store about a block or so away with snacks and beer. We enjoyed a couple of awesome sunsets from the balcony. This hotel is located close enough to town square for relaxing walks yet far enough north of the public beach activity. We were very satisfied with our room the services provided and friendly staff. We would rate this place a 8 out of 10.

Spent 5 days at Fort Myers Beach. First time in the area so we didn't know what to expect. Hotel was perfect for our family. Kids used the heated pool, played shuffleboard, and built sand castles on the beach. Our area of the island was less crowded (possibly due to lack of public parking and less restaurants/bars). The area around times square and just south of the pier were really crowded. We bought some shrimp from the farmers markets and Trico Seafood market and utilized the gas grill at the hotel. Hotel staff was great!...very friendly and very helpful. Kids also liked the talking bird, "Coco", in the main lobby. For the price, I wish the rooms were a little bigger. For the next trip though, I think we will try the southern part of the island to avoid the traffic and crowds.

Very nice maintained property! We had a great room with stove, fridge, cooking utensils, and private balcony offering fantastic view of Gulf. But it's not cheap. Property has own private beach, and, beautiful lobby complete with parrot named CoCo. Friendly & helpful staff. Great breakfast! Shops & restaurants are within a few blocks, easy to walk to. This place is not easy to get to from Fort Myers, plus traffic is horrendous! Beware, there's road construction on main beach road, be prepared to wait.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. Yes the traffic is bad this time of the year. If you were staying on the south end of the island it would take another 45 minutes to an hour. North end accommodations are much more easily accessible.

This Best Western on Fort Myers Beach is heaven on earth. So relaxing and quiet and with every room having a view of the Gulf there is no worry if you will actually get your Gulf view as promised. The beach is just a walk outside the door and you are there. And speaking of the beach you can walk along the beach to Time Square where restaurants and shops are within 5 minutes. This is our second trip here and we hope to make next year our third!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
3rd time is a charm, we cant wait to accommodate you in the future. It is always nice to hear that our property is a perfect fit for our guest that could vacation anywhere and they chose us and had a wonderful time. We truly do our best to make the Guest Experience the best it can be. Thanks again for staying with us. Guest like you make this profession most enjoyable.

We've been staying at Best Western Beach Resort in Fort Myers for over 10 years and are always very happy. It's an excellent location on the island and very quiet at night. It's a quiet walk to the Time Square area for night time entertainment and island restaurants. The pool is always warm even when the weather is chilly. It's nice to look out and look at the beautiful white sand while you enjoy the sun. We love the breakfast and every room has a kitchen. Thanks for another great family vacation at BWBR.

This hotel is not inexpensive due to its terrific location on the beach with great views of the Gulf. Our room was spacious and had a nice balcony, however we felt the room was a little spars.y furnished with only one easy chair. The dining area was totally inadequate for a hotel of this size. I counted about twenty seats...not enough. The coffee was disgusting from a machine, surely Best Western could do better. pArking was adequate. Near to the local shops atbTimes Square

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations with our breakfast seating, however we meet Best Western requirements with our seating. Unfortunately we can not change the footprint of our building so we added outdoor seating to accommodate more guest.

The room we had was spotless, quiet and had a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. The staff was always pleasant and went out of their way to help. The amenities were great: a full breakfast every morning, free daily newspapers were available at the front desk, access to a BBQ grill, pool and located right on the beach.In addition there is a vendor located right on the beach who rents out cabanas, beach chairs and ski-doos. Also, if you didn't want to take advantage of the numerous, outstanding restaurants in the area (many in walking distance through the charming town of Fort Myers Beach) the room had a small, but perfectly outfitted kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator. For my wife and I, this hotel could not have been better.

I love this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are immaculate and well landscaped. Our room had a balcony looking over the beach and very comfortable bed. It's in the less busy part of town and easy to get to, but close to restaurants and the pier, with in walking distance.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you, we do our best to keep everything looking good and in working order. The lawn area, unique to this island, is a focal point, it is a great place to relax in the shade. We are all very happy to be on the North end, less traffic and much more peaceful.

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. All rooms has an ocean front view with a balcony or patio. We had a balcony which was a nice place to enjoy our morning coffee to the evening glass of wine. Our room was large and had a nice kitchenette which we used for some of our meals. The breakfast was very nice with a good assortment of hot and cold items. Staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the friendly Macaw in the lobby. The beach was great for walking and the heated pool was near by. Everything at this hotel was quite handy. Many restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

This hotel offers fantastic beach access and a great location. You can walk down the beech or down the sidewalk to get to the restaurants and shopping. Every room offers a beach view! As far as Fort Meyers Beach, I can not think of a better place to stay. The front desk staff is super friendly and helpful.

With every room facing the gulf, you'll never miss the dolphins swim past in the morning, or beautiful sunsets every evening! The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable. Coffee on the balcony followed by a morning walk on the beach... Does it get any better than that? Even though we had cool, rainy weather for part of our trip, we stayed comfy and relaxed at BWBR! Looking forward to our next visit already!

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you very much for the great review, just the fact that you plan to return says it all! Hopefully next time the weather will cooperate, and you can enjoy even more of what Ft. Myers Beach has to offer. Thank you for being our guest.

"Great location; Rooms have mini kitchens"

06/02/2016

So these rooms ALL face the Gulf. Wonderful sounds and views of ocean. The small galley kitchen has a full size refrigerator, small sink, microwave, and 2 burner cook-top. A major plus was the nice selection of pots & pans, dishes, washing soap, and utensils. We brought fresh seafood in one night, just stir-fried, and sat on the balcony to watch the sunset. You are easy walking distance up the beach to town and not too far from Bowditch Point park. They have lots of beach in front of the hotel and those guys that rent stuff from chairs, umbrellas, or Seadoos. The outdoor pool is heated nicely! We got lots of pictures of wild life and saw many things that had washed upon the shore from the tides. The breakfast comes with eggs, and other hot stuff. The eating area inside is small but they have outside seating also. It seems to me the beds are very firm. They also are protected from bedbugs with plastic encasement under the mattress pads. I notice a slight tad of noise from the plastic.That is how I came to look and know this. My husband would never notice.The bathroom is in it's own room with a real door to close. Check prices for several dates. I found from week to week or day to day it could be a big jump.

23/01/2016

We stayed at this Best Western Plus for the first time and we were very pleased with the staff and the location. All of the front desk personnel, along with the cleaning staff and the breakfast attendants were super at their jobs and always had a smile and a pleasant greeting. The location is prime, right on the beach and every room has a view of the gulf. Now, I wish I could say our stay was perfect but it was not. There were several barking dogs on the premises which woke us up at various times during the night. (This is a pet friendly hotel). Also, our headboard was in disrepair and they should have fixed it long before any other occupant took the room. It was awful to look at the spots and tears on the headboards every day. One day, the hot water system broke and we could not take showers that morning. They fixed it quickly but still... The location can't be beat as it is quiet and you can walk several blocks down to the center of Fort Myers Beach where all the action is. However, due to the dog issue, I don't think we will return.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and thank you for being a guest of ours. Our policy is for housekeeping to let maintenance know about any problems in the rooms and your headboard has probably been replaced, I wish I knew what room you were in, never the less, it should not have looked bad upon your arrival and I must apologize.

This was my fifth year to stay at the Best Western Beach Resort in Ft Myers... I will only stay here when I visit.. The hotel offers the best service, clean rooms, terrific staff from the top with the owners, who are present and visit with guests. Every one of the front desk people will go out of their way to help and meet the needs of the guests.. The Breakfast Bar ladies are so pleasant and always keep the area neat and clean and make sure the food is always refilled, the maids are top notch and do an excellent job and also the maintenance men are always cleaning and keeping the place in top notch condition. The hotel is located within walking distance to many shops and restaurants also. Just a great place to stay and relax.

19/01/2016

We chose to stay at this hotel because of the reviews on TA and we were not disappointed because of the following: -right on the beach -lovely grounds -nice view from the room -good breakfast that is ample and polite breakfast hosts -24 hour coffee and other hot drinks -free parking -good-sized room -microwave, full-size ref., and cooktop in the room -gulf-front balcony with chairs and table -friendly, professional staff -convenient location to all the businesses, yet far enough away to be quiet -everything everywhere was clean and well-maintained -plenty of towels provided for the pool and the beach -excellent housekeeping service -in-room safe -free-wi-fi -good tv -reasonable rate considering everything above The only question would be why the pool closes at dusk (I forgot to ask the staff), but that is an extremely minor point. Tip: We rented good beach chairs and an umbrella from Holiday. Gary sets them up at 9 a.m. and takes them down at 5 p.m. and he is a really good guy, so tip him. $22 for the day or you can rent a "cabana" for $25. You could bring your own or buy some at the many shops down the street or at Wal-Mart across the bridge. -

Well if this great review doesn't say it all then none of them do! Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to write such a great review. We look forward to your return and thanks again! Oh, the pool closes at dusk because of the turtle ordinances.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. I used to be a resident of Fort Myers when I was in college and was familiar with the more popular hotels on Fort Myers Beach, like the Lanai Kai. Best Western was a little farther down, so it was very peaceful and private but in walking distance to all the local eateries/bars. The room was spotless and the view was spectacular. We loved it so much that we booked a surprise weekend for my parents who had just as wonderful as an experience as we did. The hotel staff make you feel like family and the GM Jeff was more than accommodating of our needs/wants. Definitely will forever stay here and no where else.

Great location; quiet but easy walking to eating places, etc. Excellent staff and facility. All rooms ocean front. The only drawback is that many rooms have too many palm trees that restrict the view of the water. We switched to a room above the pool that seemed to have the fewest trees.

Talking parrot in the lobby :) The outdoor grounds are kept very nice and include shuffleboard! The pool is great to have too,and towels are provided in the lobby. Loved being right on the beach for walks and sunrise/sunsets!! Could also easily walk to town for dinner, etc. Nice staff. Great value!

Everything was extremely clean and it was great to have a large shower and regular size refrigerator. Breakfast every morning was excellent and the window of time to enjoy it was great.

Good quiet location just north of "Times Square", but close enough to walk. Rooms were clean and a good size. The only complaint is that the AC was 6 inches away from one of the beds, so if you were in the middle or one side of the bed then the air blows directly on you. Its a strange setup. The pool was very good. The beach was great and not near as crowded as it was closer to the pier. Located right beside parasailing and jet ski rental. Breakfast, wifi , 24 hour coffee and parking were all included.

We visit Fort Myers Beach yearly and decided to stay here instead of our usual place...And I'm so glad we did. The entire place was very clean and newly renovated. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful especially Joy & Rich at the Front Desk. It is located right near the main part of strip near many restaurants and shops. Oh yeah, and EVERY room has a GREAT balcony view of the beach! The beach was very well kept and beautiful! We did rent two beach chairs and a umbrella for the week from Holiday Water Sports (which is located right on the beach near the Best Western) they do charge a daily fee- but it is WELL WORTH it. Gary was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend the Best Western and Holiday Water Sports Rentals!

This hotel is an excellent value. I've stayed at a "high end" resort down the strip (significantly more expensive) as well as a condo type hotel in the area (similar priced) but no real lobby or breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it is delightful and well staffed / supplied, above standard complimentary fare. Loved the 24 hour coffee / cappuccino machine. The location is also perfect, easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. Appreciated the abundance of mature palm trees on the property and the beach is great (beach is similar for all hotels in area). Housekeeping was very courteous and personable. Room was very clean, even my wife was impressed!

Excellent location and a perfect spot on the more desirable north end of Fort Myers Beach. Only footsteps from Times Square food and shopping where the majority of the "action" is on the island. The rooms all have a full view that face the beach with balconies and the Gulf. Staff was very professional and helpful. Rooms were clean, updated and very quiet.

This is one of the very best hotels on Ft. Myers Beach. It is clean, friendly and has a great location. The breakfast is delicious. We especially like the sitting area on the grass where you can sit and have a leisurely cup of coffee while reading the newspaper or a good book. And don't forget to say "hello" to Coco the Parrot.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for staying with us. Clean and friendly is what we like to be known for. The grassy tropical palm court is unique to our property and the only one on Fort Myers Beach. Believe it or not some people just do not like to get sandy and sitting in that area with the view of the beach is very relaxing.

The hotel was very clean with good beach access much better than the other hotels I have stayed in on Fort Myers Beach. The staff was very friently and helpful and all rooms have a gulf view. We were only there one night but would not hesitate to rebook this hotel for a more lengthy stay.

Celebrated our anniversary with a long weekend to Ft Myers and stayed at Best Western Plus Beach Resort. Great location, easy walk to Times Square and lots of restaurants and bars. Room was clean and comfortable and was equipped with a kitchenette, it was nice to have a refrigerator. They also offer a free breakfast in the lobby area if you don't feel like walking to a restaurant. We would stay here again.

Stayed in a 5th floor suite room and had an outstanding view of the beautiful beach. The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping and maintenance, are all very friendly and accommodating to all of our needs. The hotel and grounds are exceptionally well maintained and clean and you can see the dedication from the owner and staff to keep it this way. The heated pool was refreshing but not cold and was kept clean all day, not just once in the morning before everybody got up. The free breakfast has the same types of items you would expect from a quality business type hotel and was fresh and kept full by the staff. We will definitely be staying at this hotel when we visit Ft. Myers again.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you so much for staying with us we try our best to keep the property in the best shape possible. Our staff is great and many of them have been working here 20 plus years and we all take pride in the property. We like to treat our guest like family and I think that is the difference between a smaller family owned property and a corporate property.

Everything about my stay at this hotel was terrific. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was roomier than at many hotels. The view of the beach was the best! All rooms are oceanfront. Walk out the lobby door, through a beautifully landscaped garden of palm trees, to the beach, only steps away. The hotel is located just a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and live music at Times Square, yet it is quiet and peaceful as you relax on the beach, or sit in the chairs in the garden or on your balcony/patio. Breakfast is extensive: self-serve eggs, meat, cereal, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, waffles, pastries, breads, juice, and hot beverages. Staff is friendly and helpful. I will definitely return.

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
We did get lucky with our location, I think it is the best! Yes, every room with a beach view is a plus as well, we do not get any argument there. Thank you for all the great things you said in your review and we look forward to your return.

We checked in for one night last Thursday as we wanted to explore Ft Myers and Sanibel / Captiva Island. The front desk person, Rich, suggested that we hold the room for a second night as most people are impressed with the hotel and the area and he said that it was Thanksgiving weekend and that they would be fully booked. We had a very nice room with kitchen and bar counter with two double beds and private balcony. Hotel and room were exceptionally clean. It is located one block from restaurant and shops. We ended up booking for three nights and really enjoyed the beach and pool. Breakfast included was varied and very good. Slept with door open and could hear the surf. Staff were attentive and very friendly.

I think this is the best hotel on Ft Myers Beach. Although it's a reasonably priced Best Western, you'll think you're at a high end resort. Great rooms, very nice pool, an excellent grass sitting area, free breakfast, and right on the beach. Every room (suites) has a great view. I almost don't want to write a review because I don't want all the rooms booked up when I go back again. And, if you've ever been to Ft Myers beach, you'll know that many of the hotels are quite a walking distance from the main center, Times Square. This is only a few minutes, by beach or street.

We stayed there for four nights. It was a great hotel. It was right on the beach, walking distance to many places, staff was friendly, free breakfast and clean rooms. The price was reasonable too. On my next visit, they will be my first choice for a place to stay.

We stayed there for 3 nights. The hotel is in great location in Ft Myers and on the beach. It was about a half mile walk to the pier with its shops. The beach was nice and every morning we found a good selection of shells. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean and faced the Gulf- great view. Super sunsets! We like the kitchenette and full size fridge. The beds comfy. AC worked great. The breakfast were very good and refreshed often- nothing ran out. Staff great! The pool was nice. The only minor complaint is pool and shuffleboard area are not lit and closes at dusk. Something unusual was most of the guest were super friendly and it was very easy to chat like old friends, something we don't see at most hotels we been to. Overall it was a great stay and we highly recommend it

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us a writing a review. We are a smaller more relaxed property, it could be as simple as all of our guest are enjoying their stay with us and are naturally more friendly. lol. The turtle ordinance does not allow for us to have much lighting on the beach side of the property. Thanks again for your business and we hope to accommodate you in the future.

I stayed 4 nights mid November, this hotel is all about location, the lobby/pool is literally 20 steps from the beach. All rooms have ocean views with balconies which is a big bonus, the rooms are not massive but OK for two people. Our room was modern and in good condition with very comfortable beds. House keeping are fantastic, the rooms are spotless which is no easy feat with the fine sand from the beach. I am a very light sleeper and the rooms were perfectly sound proof, i didn't hear any noise from other guests my entire stay. The grounds are beautifully kept and very attractive, the pool is ok, it would be better if they had more umbrellas. The hotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming as is coco the parrot. The free breakfast is the standard american style you'll find at most hotels. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hotel to couples visiting the area.

23/11/2015

We booked this hotel very last minute, as we were needed a new accommodation, because our hotel in Miami was abysmal. Nice room, with an awesome view on the beach. I guess, every room has a similar view. Although I wouldn't recommend a room on the ground floor, as other guest can look directly in your room, when walking to/from the beach, pool or lobby. It was centrally located, i.e. walking distance to the pier and the bars and restaurants. But most importantly, it was clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was included. It's a small, but decent buffet. Altogether, nothing spectacular, but adequate hotel.

This hotel has been renovated in the past several years and is immaculately clean. The beds are comfortable and the view of the gulf and beautiful palm trees is very nice to look out at as you open your hotel curtain in the morning. The breakfast was very good as well, and Coco the parrot was very entertaining and fun to visit every time I passed through the lobby or courtyard.

Beach, pool, and sunsets can't be beat! Every room with a gulf view. Spotless and staff is terrific. Lost count on how many years we have been coming.

It was our 5th time at this beautyful place. It isn't just a hotel, it is truely a litte paradise. All rooms are beachfront, so you have an amazing view from your balcony. The staff is absolutely friendly and very nice! Rooms are beautyful and very clean. It is great located, you can take a short walk to dinner. The breakfast is very good. Only thing to improve would be daily served fruit salad, not only a few days a week. We will come back asap!

Staff was very friendly, nice clean hotel, view was amazing, beach area was clean and sand smoothed out, pool area was nice as well. Breakfast was amazing, loved the pancakes. Not far from restaurants and shopping, very easy to walk to. Very nice hotel, staff, view, and etc... Only stayed one night though, then with family. Only compliant I have is no where to sit on the beach. You have to rent the chairs, seriously? Its really hard to bring chairs with you on an airplane, so somewhere to sit or lay on the beach included would be nice. Good time. Thanks may return someday :) Clean hotel. Friendly people. Very nice for the money

And you can just walk to Time Square and all the restaurants.The breakfast is included and there are a lot of choices-eggs, meat, waffles, cereal, muffins, toast, etc. The kitchenette is a nice option ( we don't usually cook there), and I am very pleased with the beds and pillows. Nice shower and towels. Rooms are updated and always clean. I almost don't want to give it such a good review because I don't want it to be booked up!

Perfect place to stay in Fort Myers! Beautiful view on the white sand beach, super clean. Enjoy a relaxing time in family, walk down Time square neat restaurant and outlets after spending the day at the beach. If you are lucky , you may spot a dolphin while you swim! I recommend early mornings and late afternoons to enjoy the scenery...Keep cool by the pool under the sun... We had a great stay...The reason we came is as helping hearts for Surfers For Autism, an organization dedicated to help autistic children.
