"Too much at once going on..."

RtravelerNY, New York City, New York 23/09/2020

First off The new normal-I get it...things are different - but, a bit more added touch would be nice After several days maybe ask if we needed towels/toilet paper? They had a ‘sudden' incident that closed the entire 5th floor-the rooms with the views...the roof was being redone So-no pool! No pool No housekeeping whatsoever (I manage hotels - like I said above, offer necessities) Staff was ok- Two were surly one was very nice-the breakfast woman was wonderful Place could've been cleaner I don't know- I just HATE when you book a hotel and they don't tell you things like the pool is out of service...no housekeeping whatsoever....no amenities available I really wanted to love this place Maybe in the future I will

"Birthday Weekend"

margaracaballero, Hialeah, Florida 21/09/2020

I liked this hotel very much. It has an excellent location right on the beach and it is a true beachfront, just a few minutes walk from Times Square, where all the shops and restaurants are located. Our room was located on the 4th floor, a bit small and the beds were small as well, but it had everything you could possible need including a fridge, microwave, stove top, plates, utensils, etc. It rained a lot one night and water came in from under the door. I don't know if they could do anything about that since all the rooms have access from an exterior corridor, maybe it was the way the wind was blowing and that's why water got it. The property grounds are nice, the pool is big with lots of chairs around and they give you pool towels. I saw a guy early in the morning cleaning all the chairs by the pool, which is a good thing in this era of Covid-19. Right in front of the hotel they rent chairs, umbrellas, and you can do water sports. The breakfast was good, they serve it and you can eat it outside or take it to your room. Everyone at the hotel was nice and friendly. There is no room service, but you can get fresh towels or toilet paper just by asking. We really liked this hotel and would definitely come back.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Happy Birthday, a little late, most of all it sounds like you had a great stay at our hotel and that means a lot, to both of us. :) We hope you come back and see us and thank you for the wonderful review.

Overnight getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Stayed on 3rd floor. Balcony is nice, but palm tree obstructs view to ocean (still nice to listen though). King size room on small side but adequate. Comfy bed, only 2 pillows. Woke early to watch sunrise and came back to the stair entrance being blocked off due to construction (we had to walk through hotel with no mask or shoes). Forget about going back to bed because by 8am backup alarms from equipment and noise from whatever is being done to the hotel prevented any sleeping. It would have been nice if construction was disclosed on their website. Breakfast was standard fair that is now served to you. Morning hostess had no greeting, just pointed at a sign that listed the foods. While waiting in line I helped myself to a prepackaged cinnamon roll. Evidently post-covid this was not allowed because when she saw I had one on my table, she yelled past guests in line and rudely said not to do that again. Not only did she embarrass me but the other guests as well. Absolutely my mistake for helping myself but handled totally inappropriate. We will try a different establishment when returning to fort myers.

Love the Best Western Plus Beach Resort. We have been regular guest pretty much every year since 1985. The cleanest BW we have ever stayed at anywhere. The whole staff are great. We know most by first name, a good thing since we have to wear face coverings! Our view from the top floor.

From the moment of check-in, it was a wonderful weekend away!!! Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful!! Room was spotless and smelled like lemons. :) The best part was the laundry and the trash chutes!!! Of course, access to the pool & beach was amazing too!!! Can't forget about Coco!!! He greeted us for breakfast from his perch. Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway. :)

Dream620880, Oak Brook, Illinois 08/09/2020

Fantastic hotel! The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. We had a kitchenette that comes with plates and utensils. It had a full size refrigerator that was really convenient. Our room was on the 2nd floor over the pool and we had a fantastic view of the ocean which was steps away. The grounds are clean and beautiful and the hotel is within walking distance to Times Square. We really enjoyed our stay will stay at this hotel again when we come back.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you! That is the best compliment we can get, that you will stay with us when you come back. Thank you for the nice review and we hope to see you soon.

nmgayton, Winter Springs, Florida 26/08/2020

We had previously stayed at this property a few years ago and was not disappointed this past weekend! We purposely chose this location based on past experience and wanting to reduce our travel risks. Pros: 1. Very clean! I took disinfecting wipes and wiped down all the touch points, and counters and the wipes were still clean when I was done. 2. Outside access to rooms meant not having to take the elevator except to move luggage back and forth. 3. Balcony overlooking the beach -great views. 4. A hot breakfast is still served, but the kind attendant, Rosie, fixed our plates each morning. 5. Every time I saw team members they were hard at work either cleaning (including the outside chairs and loungers) or doing preventative maintenance. 6. Pool closes each evening so no worries about raucous parties late into the night. 7. Jordon at the front desk was warm and friendly! 8. A kitchenette with full size refrigerator (also had plates, utensils, coffee maker and toaster) allowed us to prepare simple meals. A broom and dust pan are also in the room - great for sweeping up all the sand tracked in from beach walks. 9. A few minutes walk to pier, convenience store, and two ice cream shops! 10. Masks to be worn in all common indoor spaces such as breakfast area (tables are set up outside - who doesn't love eating breakfast and watching the waves?) Cons: This is a personal preference, the AC unit was a little too loud for me. My husband slept just fine, but I woke up several times a night when it cycled on. I would definitely recommend this location for anyone wanting to get away but do so while mitigating risks associated with the pandemic.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Wow, thank you for taking the time to compose a great review, would like to join our team :) Yes, the new cleaning procedures are a big undertaking, but we have to keep our guest and employees safe. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon.

Kendallkong, Peachtree City, Georgia 18/08/2020

Short trip for mom and daughters. Very nice and easy checkin. Property was very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was a really good bonus and save time and money compared to creating our own. Short walk to some really good restaurants for lunch/dinner and desserts. We would gladly visit here again.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to compose a nice review. Clean is the name of the game these days, it takes us on average 20 minutes more to clean a check-out due to the new cleaning standards. Breakfast has been a challenge but we are maintaining pretty close to normal, we just have to plate it for you. Thank you for staying and we hope to see you again soon.

If your looking for peace and quiet this is the place to be. It isn't too far from shops and restaurants yet feels worlds away when sitting on your balcony enjoying the view or walking the beach. It isn't a very crowded beach which makes it great for people who just want to chill.

This hotel exceeded my expectations! It was super clean (and I am very particular!) and a beautiful resort. The room was awesome with a full fridge and plenty of dishes/pots and pans for cooking. The balcony was perfect for the two of us. Walking distance to Times Square where there are plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!

Yes , I know comparing to others hotels in the area it may not have that much entertaining options, but if you are picky like me regarding cleaning , this is the place that you need to stay in, Staff is friendly , you have breakfast in the morning which is a huge help to jump start your day , location is at a walking distance to other hotels and restaurants. I do recommend BWP for your stay in Fort Myers Beach.

novao625, Lake Worth, Florida 23/07/2020

We had a very nice time at this hotel. The location was perfect!! So close to everything. Can walk to times square. All rooms are oceanview with beautiful sunset views. The WiFi was great, never had an issue with 4 devices being used. With a family of 4 (2 kids), we Loved that we had a kitchen with a full size refrigerator/freezer. Room was clean. Wish the beds were queen size instead of full size but we knew that when we booked. The staff was always cleaning. Room service was suspended but you can always call For whatever you needed like fresh towels, etc. Breakfast was good. They still served hot food the only thing was that you had to be served by staff and couldn't take it yourself which was fine. Everyone wore masks in the lobby. Staff was very friendly especially Rich, the manager. He made us feel very welcome. Our kids loved the pool and the beach was so close, just a few steps away from the pool. We loved renting waverunners right on the beach in front of the hotel. You do have to pay for the beach chairs on the beach so if you are driving like we did, you should bring your own. At night there were hundreds of sand dollars in the water. They are alive so don't take them but they are so pretty to look at. We had the best sunsets even though the weather this week wasn't the greatest. We Still had an amazing time and this hotel was a great choice. Did I mention the location was PERFECT???

This was my second visit to this resort my first visit was awesome this last visit was just okay. The first couple days went great then we got new neighbors and they brought their birds on vacation with them and they left there balcony door open the entire time i had to listen to birds squawking out on the balcony and loud music blaring from there room while they sat outside and listened to it under the gazebo. Not very relaxing at all. I know workers had to here this going on and nothing was done about it.

Friends were telling us we were crazy for visiting Florida during the Pandemic! We needed to visit our yearly Paradise. We felt absolutely safe in this hotel. The Staff were cleaning and sanitizing constantly, the breakfast was great as usual - only difference, the staff served the food and drinks - always wearing clean gloves, being very careful. Masks were required in the lobby and people were mindful. I cannot say enough about this property - we have stayed at this property almost every year for over the last 10 years.... always made to feel like we are coming home. Special thank you to Rich - we will see you next year - along with our daughter and her family! Keep up the good work!

"Nice hotel, but not a resort"

steveng3363, Cincinnati, Ohio 16/07/2020

Don't get me wrong: I loved my fourth-floor room here with a view of the Gulf from the balcony, and it was beautifully quiet. It's just that this is not a resort. Aside from shuffleboard, a swingset, and an outdoor grill for guest use, this hotel has no extras. In fact, it does not even have a fitness center or a restaurant. The complimentary breakfast is the same standard thing that you will find in any hotel chain location in the United States. Furthermore, the parasols and beach seats that are set out every morning are not free, and don't even belong to the hotel. You have to rent them for $30 per day. For the rate guests pay (we paid $200/night) there should be more of a resort feeling to this place. At least the parking is free.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
I am sorry you feel that way, we had to reduce the breakfast offerings due to the coronavirus and at a higher cost. We take pride that we have no extra charges, we have everything you need, restaurants just a 5 minutes walk away and plenty to choose from. We also give free passes to the gym 3/4 miles down the street, of course they are closed, same as if we had one it would be closed. Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to compose a nice review.

This was a family weekend girls trip for three nights. When we arrived the check in was easy and our room was ready. The lobby is super clean. Our room 216 had a kitchen, coffee pot and amazing view. The room was also spotless. The pool was warm it's a lovely place to lay out listening to the waves and soak up the Florida sun. They make the breakfast area clean and safe for the covid pandemic. The food was hot and good. I loved the coffee. The beach was everything I hoped for. White sand warm water. Not crowded, and definitely relaxing. The hotel is walking distance to restaurants and shops. Ten minute walk to a sunset cruise we did. I will definitely be back. I want the staff know how special they made this girl family trip for us. Thank you

I am a picky customer when staying at hotels. Decor does not concern me much but cleanliness is more important. This hotel was very clean. Room and bathroom included.

Checked in on the day this resort opened up after being closed for the pandemic. Staff was incredibly friendly including the resort bird Coco! The staff made guest feel safe and accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious. The ocean view from the room was gorgeous. The best part of this resort was being able to walk right out of the property onto the private beach area for guests. I will be back to this resort and will definitely recommend it to others!

"Dedicated Staff During Covid"

molar1994, Evansville, Minnesota 13/04/2020

We stayed here early in the Covid outbreak. Always cleaning! The hotel brown bagged breakfast, your choice of food, rather than cancel it, which I believe other hotels did. Rich at desk was very helpful. Always available to answer questions as events were changing daily because of Covid. The hotel allowed us to check out two days early at no charge. 2 blocks to 7-11 for some alcohol and snacks. If you are looking for a cheap hotel during spring break, this isn't for you. If you are searching for a hotel that will take care of you, you've found it.

This was our first time staying on Ft Myers beach. Early March. The hotel was well located right on the beach. The grounds were nice. Didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. There's a kiosk on the beach for umbrella rentals that we took advantage of. The beach is nice but not too many shells. It's an easy walk to the Times Square area with its restaurants and shops and the pier. Ample parking and nice balcony with beach view. Only negative was a loud refrigerator. I will probably come again for a longer stay.

The location on the beach was awesome, and allowed us to walk to dining each day. The room was big enough for our family, which included 2 college age students.

I just wanted to write a short THANK YOU to Rich for his wonderful customer service. I had a room for 2 nights reserved for March 28-30 for four 70+ year olds . Due to the coronavirus we decided to cancel our reservation at this time. Rich was extremely kind in helping me cancel our reservation. We were all disappointed to have to change our plans, but circumstances and our age made it necessary!! Anyway, we will definitely book again at The Best Western Plus Beach Resort because of how thoughtful and helpful Rich was. Good Luck to you and your resort during this virus event.

Nothing extravagant but on the ocean and very clean. Breakfast area is small but always found a table. Never had to go elsewhere for breakfast. Bring your own beach chairs or be prepared to pay $30 a day for the rental chairs. Overall a beautiful spot on Fort Myers Beach. Quiet and a great place for long walks on the beach.

fredinwi, delavan, United States 13/03/2020

We have been here many many times. The rooms are quite nice with a small kitchenette. The staff is great, and the property is meticulously maintained. The LOCATION (just a couple blocks from Times Square in Fort Myers Beach and all the restaurants) is wonderful! You can walk to a multitude of restaurants every day/evening. The breakfast room is a touch small but the owners have done the best they could and no one seems to mind in this amazing, happy environment on the beach. We LOVE this place! (A little pricey during spring break so we gave the "value" a start less... but it's still worth it:)

Excellent location, all the balconies face the Gulf and the white sand flat beach. There is a service in front of the hotel that rents cabanas and chairs and umbrellas. They also have kayaks and jet skis. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the cenetr of activity and a Free tram (I believe from January-April) runs every 15 minutes with a stop in front of the hotel. The staff are incredibly nice and helpful and the rooms are large and clean. The breakfast is one of the best with a lot of variety and menu changes each day. Fantastic sausage gravy.

User 29/02/2020

We stayed at the Best Western Plus in January. The hotel was a great find. It is on a beautiful, white sand beach. The only downside is you have to rent umbrellas and chairs. The room was adequate size with a nice bathroom with a tub. The kitchen with a refridgerator came in handy. I think all rooms are beachfront with a balcony. The rooms were nicely decorated. It's location is great too. Most of the time we walked to Times Square. The staff was very nice too. We would definately return.

This hotel property is very nice! First, upon check-in we were greeted by Joy and she was exceptionally helpful and described all of the hotels amenities, breakfast times, etc. Our room was clean and somewhat spacious - kinda like a small suite with full refrigerator, stove top and most kitchen amenities. Almost rooms face the "ocean"front (Gulf) and we had a delightful view from our balcony. Breakfast in the morning was very good and had quite a good variety. Many guests knew each other and as we found out, many were there for longer stays, and had come every year for many years. (That itself says something about the place!) Both the room amenities & general hotel amenities are very nice. Hotel is in great location, far enough away from the craziness but an easy walk to many restaurants. Really nothing but a great hotel, terrific location & exceptional staff. One night was not long enough! Oh be sure to say hi to Coco in the lobby!

If you are looking for a quiet Fort Myers getaway this place is perfect. A little bit down from the busy center section of Fort Myers Beach, plenty of room to spread out and relax. Beach umbrella and chair rental was reasonable, although not a big fan of being kicked off of the chairs at 5pm, still a good hour before sunset. Pool was nice for the kids. Plenty of food options nearby. This was really an almost perfect spot for a quick beach getaway. If we end up in Fort Myers again we will absolutely stay here,

User 17/02/2020

Where to begin with this place! I booked a room for 1 night for my birthday weekend. I live locally and had heard good things about the hotel but never had a reason to stay. I decided I wanted to be on the beach and suck up the sun. We are in peak season which leaves few rooms available. I was happy to see Best Western Plus had one available. When we arrived it was around 9am (I wanted the sun all day!) Rick at the front desk was so friendly. He allowed me to park my car and said go and enjoy the resort. We walked through the lobby with our beach chairs and cooler ready for a great beach day. I was not expecting an early check in because it was season so I was super surprised when he called 2 hours later and said our room was ready. The room was super clean, nice towels, all rooms are waterfront so we had a view of the beach and resort area. There was a full refrigerator, 2 burner cook top, a microwave and toaster along with all the dishes and pans you would need to make a meal. Staying only 1 night we didn't use anything except the fridge. Restaurants are all walkable so it's not necessary to cook. (We ordered pizza ;) ) The beach was super clean. The lobby was clean and welcoming. Coco the parrot was entertaining and the hotel's team was super friendly and funny! They always had something nice to say when they saw us passing through the lobby. We would walk through to get water or use the restrooms or meet other friends that were arriving later and the front desk team just always smiled and made sure we didn't need a thing. They genuinely cared that we were well taken care of and didn't need anything. Basically, Check in and Check out were a breeze! Great breakfast! Great Staff! Good coffee (served all day by the way) Comfy bed and towels. Great location! If you have a choice, this is the best one and the value for the money absolutely cannot be beat! Thanks for adding to my birthday weekend and making it so special! I will be back. Mostly because it just felt so homey. This was the perfect spot for my birthday weekend!

This was our first family vacation to FMB and the BW Plus Beach Resort did not disappoint!! The free breakfast was DELUXE and super yummy - rooms were nice and clean - it was great having a kitchenette in the room - the kids LOVED the pool and beach - the lush terrace was great for relaxing - awesome to have chair and jetski rentals on site - wonderful staff - picture-perfect sunsets - quiet - great proximity to Time Square for dining, shopping and fun! We loved Coco the resident Parrot!! Cons: beds were Full size not Queen

We called a week ahead and the day of our check in asking for an early check in due to having a wedding at 4pm, the same time as check in. We were promised a call when our room was ready, we never received a call. We had to get ready in our car and wasn't able to check in until 9pm. Very disappointed.

Darline was exceptional - did an excellent job cleaning up after us in our comfortable room and Blanca, Rosa and Jessica made sure every a.m. that we had a hot delicious breakfast - going out of their way to please us! As long as we can, we will return to this location, location, location on the beach. Can't beat it!!!

We have been staying at this property for a week for almost 20 years. I can easily say you won't find a more beautiful property. All rooms face the beach/Gulf of Mexico. They have a kitchenette in every room which includes a range, full size fridge and microwave. This comes in very handy if you want to save money and not eat out every night. The staff is always extremely friendly and helpful. Very quiet place to stay. Awesome breakfast with high quality food with tons of variety. You won't find a cleaner more modern hotel!!! There is literally not one thing I would change at this hotel. It's absolutely PERFECT!!!

I usually stay at more 'luxury' brands and was a little nervous to try this Best Western, but was very very impressed with our stay, the friendliness of the staff, the direct ON BEACH location, the cleanliness of the property, the chill vibe, the great breakfast, the free-coffee-all-day, etc. This was probably my best hotel stay ever in Florida. Would definitely come back!

jackiehul, Stockholm, Sweden 19/01/2020

This is our second year at this hotel and it really is a gem. It is a five minute beach walk the right hand side of the pier so it is a very quiet area of the beach. The views from the balcony are wonderful. 24 hour coffee and a plentiful breakfast that changes daily are a plus!. There is a shuffleboard on a area with grass and trees if you want shade and it is lovely to sit there when the sun is too hot. Rooms are big and very well kept. There is good laundry machines on site. It is a short walk to the main square which is very busy, so you can have both a quiet and lively visit in one location. Spent new years eve there and it is perfect location for wonderful fireworks while sitting on the beach. Highly recommended

We have stayed at this resort numerous times. We live in Florida and “vacation “ here every couple of months. We chose this resort for the gulf views. We enjoy sitting on the balcony and watching the gulf. Up until this last visit, the room and view has been perfect. However, this last visit our view of the gulf was virtually nonexistent! We did request specific rooms but apparently our request could not be honored. We were assigned to room 503. There is a huge palm tree in front of the balcony. Several other trees are to the right and left obscuring the view of anything other than the trees. If you are considering this hotel for gulf views, re yesterday to be in a room overlooking the pool.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are sorry you did not enjoy your time with us. We do have some beautiful Royal Palms that have gotten taller and provide shade for our guests. We haven't really had many complaints from 503 about the view. Maybe during our next renovation we will move the Royal to a different location.

The resort is right on the beach and the sand is pretty compact. My 2 teen kids were able to wheel me in my chair with minimal effort. The grounds are all accessible and there's 2 elevators. We stayed in room 316 which has a large barrier fee roll-in shower. It even came with a stationary shower chair which I didn't use since I have my own wheeled shower chair. The balcony patio isn't accessible due to a small door opening and step. Two full beds which accommodated my family of 4. It would be nice if they added a beach wheelchair. The pool has a lift but I didn't use.

We only stayed here for 2 nights, but got a taste of what Fort Myers Beach and the resort had to offer. The hotel was amazing and I had an amazing time there. My parents had been to the same hotel twice before but this was my first time there. The hotel room was big enough for 3, the beach was large and clean while being able to walk to the pier, and the views over the ocean from the room were fantastic. Also the resort is in good walking distance to the center of the small island, where the restaraunts and shops were. They also offered jetskiis on the hotel Beach to rent. We didn't stay for long, but I'm already looking forward to our next visit.

beckybJ8441DM, Pierre, South Dakota 24/11/2019

We stayed here two of the five nights for our recent trip to Ft Myers Beach. I was a little hesitant as BW properties in my area are typically run down. I was pleasantly surprised with this resort. The staff was very friendly, the parrot in the lobby was a hoot (he does say “Polly want a cracker”), the pool was heated and had a great view of the beach and we could rent beach chairs and an umbrella if we wanted to. The breakfast was AMAZING. So many options and the food was delicious. The size of the breakfast room was small but they had tables and chairs outside if you wanted to sit out there. There were a lot of palm trees which provided plenty of shade. Beach was great. The water pressure in the shower was also amazing. The downs: The room was cozy, however we would've liked a queen bed at minimum. Full size are too short for us. During the night the air conditioner would stop running and it got very hot. Once we were up and moving around it magically started cooling the room again. The shuffleboard needs to be repainted. Elevators were slow sometimes and had a weird smell. Hot tub and longer pool hours would be nice. Also you have to walk a ways or get a ride to the nearest restaurant, would be great to have something on site or closer.

This is our second trip to Fort Myers Beach and our second time to stay at Best Western Plus. Walk out the front door and on the beach. Nothing but good to say about the rooms and the service. Breakfast is exceptional! Love the 24 hours a day coffee machine. The pool is perfect. I have nothing negative to say about any of our experience. Centrally located on the beach. It is walking distance on the beach or sidewalk to the peer for eating and shopping. If it was closer to the airport we would not have even needed a rental car. Coco the talking bird gives the place a nice personal touch. Great Experience. Will stay there our next trip to Fort Myers Beach.

This is our go to hotel every year we visit FMB. We're very impressed that the hotel never seems to show signs wear and tear. Everything is kept very clean, even the sun beds and outdoor furniture. Room overlooking the gulf is spotlessly clean and the complimentary coffee during the day makes for a refreshing change to being charged for everything. Breakfast very much for US tastes, so not perfect for us Brits, but there is sufficient choice to enable a reasonable breakfast. Congrats to the management team and especially Rich on the front desk, who's looks after us so well. Only slight niggle is the aircon units are a little noisy.

A very nice and clean hotel right in the beach for a great price. Rooms are spacious water pressure is strong, the bath towels are big and soft,nice little kitchen area, the pool is nice. If you want ocean view ask for the 5th floor, we were on the 4th floor but the view is completely blocked with palm trees that line the property. The breakfast area is small so if you have a family of 4 with small children it's not easy to find a seat. the breakfast has much to be desired, you can make your own waffles but they have a stale texture to them, the bacon is a low line microwave bacon but your getting free breakfast at a hotel so you can't expect anything great.

We have been visiting here for 8 years and each year gets better!! Beautiful views, very clean rooms and friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is such a great perk, and has a great selection each day! The shelling is great, and the Resort is close to restaurants and shops. We love it here so much that hopefully we will snowbird here!

This hotel is very clean. The staff are so nice, friendly & helpful. Great breakfast each morning. Only negative thing is that there were not enough seating for breakfast. The staff was right there filling hot meals, plates, etc. Again, it was so clean.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the nice review. Keeping things clean on the salty, sandy Gulf of Mexico is a challenge, we have great employees keeping our ship in tip top shape. The breakfast seating is a challenge depending on when our guest come down to eat. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

"Nice beach but very small rooms"

Hollyhock59, Pekin, Illinois 20/10/2019

Pros: The hotel has a good breakfast The beach is close and beautiful. The pool is nice. Cons: The rooms are very small. The beds are very high and not that comfortable. The bathroom is very small. Two people can barely move around in the room at one time. Will probably not stay there again. Three sheriff deputies were circulating in the hotel with a picture of a “wanted” person on there clipboard. Two sheriff cars out front. When asked about it, no answers were given. We felt unsafe.

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 you did not like our room size. We are on a small island and there isn't much crime. I am sure our Sheriff's Department was just trying to do their job to keep our little community safe. To be honest this is the first I have heard of them doing this and I don't know if the police didn't answer your questions or our staff in which maybe they didn't give us any answers. Sorry to lose you as a guest but I assure you this is a very safe island.

Overall great choice to stay at Fort Myers beach. From the front desk to the breakfast attendants to the housekeeping and upkeep crews we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everyone was very friendly and attentive to our needs. All questions were answered and extra info such as restaurant recommendations were made with ease.

The people at the hotel was very kind! All the service was very very good. You have a coffee machine at the lobby all day long. The breakfast was perfect and with a lot of things to choose. Sultana and Miriam were very kind and helpful to us from the first day. Thank you girls!!!! The bedroom was very comfortable and it has everything you need in your stay. The location was perfect. One block to the metro and two stops to Times Square! We can't ask for more! We used the metro to go everywhere so stay here was a great experience.

Breakfast was very good and view from our balcony was almost perfect. A tree blocked it a little

bjorkby, Oslo, Norway 05/10/2019

The main asset of this hotel is its location. Compared to Miami and Orland hotel rooms are a lot pricier on the west coast, but this hotel is a great choice in Fort Myers beach. Location is fantastic just off the beach, with all rooms having balconies facing the sea. Just a short stroll to the local centre Times square with restaurants and shops. We had a double queen room but the beds are not made for two people - very narrow and bad mattresses. When complaining we immediately got an extrabed to the room though. Breakfast buffet is ok, not fantastic but not bad either, and best of all it was free. The hotel does not have a gym. All in all it was a decent hotel with a great location.

We decide to go for a couple of days for our anniversary. I choose this hotel because is right on the beach. It has a pool but we didn't use it. The room was clean. What I didn't like is that one of the beds was next to the AC unit. The beds are full size. The room has a waterfront view. Overall I like the hotel and for sure I will stay again. The breakfast was good and had options. The location is great walking distance to the little town. Everyone was very nice and helpful.

This BW beach is very clean and the staff is more than friendly, beach towels are provided but lounge chairs and umbrellas are an additional cost. Loads of restaurants and shops all within a short walking distance by using beach or side walk and great place to watch the sunset.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. Every view is a beautiful ocean view. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast has a large variety of items, is fresh and hot. And don't forget Coco! This is a lovely hotel and our experience is always delightful.

Jae H, Port Charlotte, Florida 30/08/2019

This is the first time I ve stayed at this hotel, my family and I have been doing "staycations" at FMB almost annually for 17 years. I got a great nightly rate from the BW website is the main reason I stayed here and was not disappointed! It s not fancy and doesnt have 'resort' accommodations, but at least parking was free and no extra fees! The location on the beach is awesome, walking distance to everything, yet far away from the crowds to be peaceful. The hotel common areas were well taken care of, rooms were clean and updated with a full kitchen. Free breakfast every morning was warm and fresh. Staff was friendly and the maintenance person was there all day/night. Only complaint was that there was only one slow elevator, therefore, if you stay on one of the top floors, like we did on the 5th, you have to either wait for it or take the stairs. I do recommend staying on one of the top floors so you have unobstructed views of the beach. My husband cant wait to go back!

This hotel was a perfect location for our girls trip. The hotel is clean, staff were all friendly, rooms are spacious, breakfast every morning is a plus, and the view from each room is wonderful. The beach here is beautiful and quiet. They provide pool towels which was great since we flew and had limited luggage space. It's within walking distance to many restaurants and shops so we never needed a car. Say “hello” to Coco if you go.

It is very well located near the pier, shops, and restaurants. We'll definitively be back!

This was an expensive resort and the rooms are a lot to be desired. The decor is unattractive and the room was dirty. The bathroom tub had some greasy residue on the bottom of it. The water pressure was non existent and one night there was no hot water! The umbrella should come with the price of the room for what they charge!

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
I am sorry if there was something like that in the tub, if there was it was our mistake. But believe me if there was no hot water or water pressure surly we would have heard from others, and we did not. As far as being expensive I will offer you a tip, don't book through a travel agent, they take 15% and for booking direct with us you would have received an additional 10%. Your rate would have been $289 per night verses using Expedia at $379. Works the same at every hotel. Finally, if all of our guest thought the same as you we wouldn't be the most successful hotel on Ft. Myers Beach and we have over 30% repeat guest every year and we are in the top 20 percent of every Best Western in North America.

Our room was ready early when we arrived at 1230pm so that was great. They even allowed us late checkout the next day at noon. The oceanfront pool was clean and we had no problem finding a chair to relax. The free continental breakfast in the morning was very good. The hotel is a short walk to the Times Square area with restraunts, bars and shopping. Overall this is a great hotel and we would definitely stay here again.

"BEACH BEACH BEACH"

User 08/07/2019

This hotel was awesome. So many people walking the beach would stop and ask the name of the hotel. Beautiful palm trees lined the premises which I did not see at other hotels. All rooms were Beach front, literally less than 100 yards away. No resort fees, free breakfast and parking. Water activities right on site! The ONLY two cons I can think of were low water pressure at the kitchen sink and the beds were a bit hard, but don't worry ladies... there was enough shower pressure for rinsing out your hair! :) Very convenient location with 7-11 across the street and Walmart within 5 miles. Eat at THE DOGHOUSE - tell them Wichita, KS sent ya! You WILL NOT be disappointed with this eatery or hotel.

Stayed for July 4th week and it was fantastic. Our balcony had an awesome view of the fireworks from the pier. View of the beach is breathtaking. Room was clean breakfast was very good. Quick walk to Times Square. This was our second time here and will definitely come back.

This was our second visit to the Bestwestern plus and we really enjoyed our stay. This is also a pet friendly place.Please note that this is also NOT a 100% smoke-free place. A lot of the rooms overlook the Gulf of Mexico and is absolutely beautiful! Short walk to Times Square. And only 30 minutes from the Fort Myers international airport. I'ts a 30 minute drive to Naples. Overall it's a great place and I recommend it highly.

Facility was clean, breakfast was good,with good variety daily, ladies kept food fresh and dining area clean, would stay here again. Only complaint is that the pool water was too warm, with heat index at 100+, the pool was not refreshing.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a nice review, the best thing is that you will stay here again. I wish I could do something about the warm water. This time of year the only place to cool off is in the AC. I have never heard of a system to cool your pool but it is worth looking into, we would have the only one on the beach.

CindyC3696, Stuart, FL 30/06/2019

We are Best Western fans! Have stayed in many and have stayed in BW Plus, which this one is. And this was one of the nicest! The view was spectacular! Our 5th floor (top floor) room had a view above the palm trees of the gorgeous blue green Gulf. The cleanliness and attention to detail was amazing. There was always someone cleaning somewhere, or attending to the pool, or spreading grass seed or cleaning the parrot, Coco's, cage. Breakfast, which is included, was far better than any other BW. There were many choices, the serving dishes were classy and the hostesses were always keeping up with the guests. The grounds are really nice. There is a BBQ, Adirondack chairs throughout, nice grassy area, big pool with balls, noodles and the like. The staff are polite and always asking what they can do to help. This is a great spot and close to 'times square", Bowditch Park and the fishing pier, all are walkable. Enjoy your time here! We surely did. Enjoy!

This is our second visit to the Bestwestern and it's such a nice hotel.The staff is very polite and the rooms are very clean. You can't ask for more if you love the beach, I think most of the rooms look right out to the Gulf of Mexico. The breakfast is included- which had eggs, cereal,yogurt etc...Coffee is 24/7- also in walking distance there is a place called Time Square that has restaurants and shops.

"Beautiful Resort"

debbiee830, Glen Ellyn, Illinois 28/06/2019

Each room in this resort face a palm tree lined beach. So nice to sit out on your own balcony and watch the waves each morning. The pool borders the beach, so you can simply sit in a pool chair facing the beach rather than rent expensive chairs closer to the water. The breakfast was great and there was indoor and outdoor seating facing a beautiful courtyard. The hotel is in walking distance to Times Square where there are a number of beach side restaurants. A few of the restaurants offer nightly live music. Rooms at this hotel were equipped with a kitchenette, including a full sized fridge. Air conditioning temperature was easy to regulate.

Tim M, General Manager at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review, and yes, we are lucky to have found this great location, no need for a car here. We are always trying to stay ahead, if not the salty air will eat up everything. It is a challenge, we like to say it makes us keep it twice as clean. Thank you for staying with us.

sdl1475, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 23/06/2019

Stayed for 6 days in June. Upon arrival after the check in time our room was not ready.. Then on 2 seperate days after leaving our room for the day we recieved no housekeeping service. They lied and said "the do not disturb sign" was on the door. It was on the door until we left the room in the morning.. Im not sure what time im supposed to get out of my room so its gets cleand?? I spoke with the Manager Rich who was very nice and adjusted our bill somewhat.. The place is in a great location and the staff is nice but the housekeping is a different story. This room was not cheap so I think we should not have to fight to get pour room cleaned.

Sharon A, St. Petersburg, United States 19/06/2019

This hotel is right on the beach and all rooms have balconies that face the beach. There is a pool and a nice garden area with chairs, shuffleboard, and play area for kids. Chairs and umbrella can be rented on the beach as well as other beach items. Free parking. Lots of shops and restaurants which are within walking distance. The hotel and our room was very clean and nicely decorated. Our room had two beds, a small kitchen with two burner cooktop, microwave, small sink and full size refrigerator. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lady that works the breakfast room kept everything very clean and the food was hot. The best breakfast of any Best Western we have stayed. The only complaint we had was the A/C unit was right next to one of the beds and the fan blew directly at you. No way to adjust the vents.

"Great Place to Stay on the Beach"

Steve5863, Avon, Ohio 18/06/2019

Located directly on the gulf beach on the northern end of Estero Island (Forty Myers Beach), a short distance north of the bridge from the mainland, this hotel is within easy walking distance of the pier, the Times Square area with its many restaurants, bars and shops, and Bowditch Point Park's beach and natural area. The beach directly in front the hotel is great from swimming and shelling. We found that the location prevented the need to drive anywhere during our stay, a great advantage given the traffic on the island. The hotel is very clean and well maintained inside and out with a friendly helpful staff, a nice outdoor pool, shuffle board and garden area with grill facilities for guest use. Parking is free as is the strong, reliable Wi-Fi through the hotel, and the full complimentary breakfast. Our room was super clean and overlooked the beach, as do all rooms, with a small balcony that we enjoyed in the evenings and mornings. Our room included two comfortable beds, a nice spotless bathroom, and a kitchen area with a full sized refrigerator-freezer, cooktop, microwave, sink, coffeemaker and basic cook and tableware.

Wanderer19589823860, Hernando, Florida 17/06/2019

Friendly, comfy, soft beds, beautiful views, wonderful breakfast, good customer service. Couple minor improvements needed, but overall highly recommend. Told them to clean handi-able shower with toilet bowl cleaner for fresher looking grout. Fix slow elevator. Add check room alarm to make sure it's off for each checkin. Ours was left on for 6am. Last improvement would be to change out satellite television. It does not work for FL. Goes down a lot. Other than those minor issues we really really enjoyed our stay and would go again. We gave 4.5 on Facebook out of 5.0 already. Every room has an amazing view of the ocean and the area restaurants are excellent and many open late. Really a nice place to stay.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review and we thank you for the recommendation. We are sorry for the alarm going off, I still have not figured that one out as it is a single use daily alarm clock it can not be preset for multiple days. Maybe the housekeeper activated it while cleaning it. This is really the first issue that we have had with the alarms so we are making sure they check the alarm clocks so this doesn't happen again. Thank you again for staying with us.

It is so well-kept and beautiful, both inside and out (the grounds, pool, etc), the employees are kind and helpful and efficient and really make you feel at home. All rooms have a deck/patio that is faces the beach/gulf...great views and listening the the waves! They serve a great breakfast buffet, too! The location is perfect, walking distance from the pier, Town Square with restaurants and shops, and such a perfect beach...truly a wonderful experience for us! We can't wait to come back!

Stayed with my daughter for a mother-daughter vacation recently. Stayed at the BW Plus Beachfront last year as well. Just love this hotel. Perfect location, amazingly friendly & accommodating staff and nice clean rooms with a kitchen area making it the best place to stay if you're not into eating out every single meal of your trip. The location on the beach is great and it's within walking distance to the Ft Myers Beach Pier with all it's restaurants & shops. Easy drive into Ft Myers or Estero as well. Crazy crowded during Spring Break as we discovered last year, however we went back this year after the Spring Break crowds left and it was awesome. Combined with amazing weather & it was a perfect vacation. We will definitely be back!

Wow, great review and the best part "We will definitely be back!" means everything and gives our employees motivation. We are definitely lucky to be located on the North end, I don't think anyone at the time it was sold new how important being on the North end is. Quiet and about a 8 minutes walk to the nightlife. Hope to see you soon.

We stayed for a 6 nights late Apr to early May and found everything was excellent, the staff, room, breakfast and pool. Good 1st evening welcome by the desk staff and very efficient which helped after a long drive and you just want to rest up. We found all the staff were friendly and, unprompted, they always asked if they could help with anything. I must say a special thanks to Rich Szatanski for fixing a problem with a BW Reward card and his negotiations on our behalf. It was lovely holiday due to choosing BWP Fort Myers Beach. Although it's a long way from rural England we love our little piece of Florida Paradise. Penner Family

The breakfast has a vast variety of food, form cereal with 4 types of milk to waffles and eggs. Some days they even had biscuits and gravy. The room is a little small, but well laid out with two queen beds. Up graded bath with wonderful towels and great pillows. Can't wait to get back there soon.

chipohio01, Memphis, Tennessee 07/05/2019

The location is awesome and it is right on the beach. The place is clean. The rooms are pretty small and a little dated. The staff was helpful. The breakfast is pretty basic (powdered eggs and only a few choices, but average and typical). At a resort location like this, I would expect a better breakfast. We stayed there in early May and the weather was good, windy, but good. Another small issue is that getting to the island where the hotel was very difficult. The traffic gets backed up on the one bridge. I would not likely stay there again, as I think I would look at Sanibel and some other locations.

Breakfast provided everyday, try to go early before 930am -10am crowds. Room was very clean, but mattress was very uncomfortable and broken down. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beach was steps from lobby back door and was fantastic; ,chairs,umbrellas, water craft available for rent. Outstanding view of the sunset.

pianogirl211, Gloversville, New York 26/04/2019

I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my aunt and uncle during my spring break. The room was the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in considering the nonstop beach traffic with sand, shells, and water that comes through the lobby area and into the rooms. The bathroom and room was well cleaned for sure. The room itself was fine, clean and well kept. However, it was tiny. Two king beds hardly fit in there and then to add a rollaway for me was impossible to squeeze in. We had to put it in the kitchenette, hence creating an unsafe evacuation route if we needed to leave. It was not a big deal, just a little unsettling. The breakfast was pretty good, a nice selection. The staff seemed a little frazzled as if they were on a big rush and could not keep up. No complaints though, it was very tasty. The best part of the stay was the beach access by far. The private beach and chair rentals were very handy since we flew in and could not bring chairs and an umbrella with us. Overall, a friendly and helpful staff. A great place to stay if your family is looking for a private and quaint little vacation. Attached are some photos of the hotel area and beach.

Our room had a lovely balcony over looking the ocean where we could watch the sunset each evening. The pool area was clean and the water was warm! We also were able to rent umbrellas and chairs directly in front of our hotel each day. The hotel breakfast was above average with several options. The location was far enough away from the public beach to provide privacy and a lot less people but well with in walking distance of time square and all the shops and entertainment. We didn't even need a car - we used Lyft to drive in from the airport. Will definitely be going back.

This is a hotel that does exactly what we needed. Comfortable spacious room with a fantastic view of the beautiful beach. It's a good spot too, away from the melee towards Time Square, but easy walking distance. Pool isn't huge, but well kept and ideal for cooling off, especially when the sea has red tide as it does at present. Big thank you to Marina at breakfast who made me fresh fruit salad without me having asked her to - hugely appreciated, made me feel very welcome.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the review and for staying with us. It is always nice to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay with us. We did not have Red Tide and haven't had a issue with Red Tide since September. I think you have the red drift algae confused with red tide. This algae, however, should not be confused with red tide or blue-green algae. A nontoxic variety that actually creates wildlife habitat once its on beaches, red drift algae is really seaweed that broke loose from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and washed ashore.

Close enough to Times Square for food, drinks and shopping or entertainment yet feels like it's a world of its own away from the hustle and bustle.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Yes, exactly why we love it, what a great review. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

With the exception of the location, this hotel checks all the boxes. Staff friendly, clean, quite, good value and family friendly. When it comes to location the box is double checked. Right on the beach, and not just a small beach but a deep lot of pure sugar sands. The beach is private and provides a nice walk north to Bowitch point or South to the stores and bars...all within 20 mins or less. There are plenty of beach chairs for rent which is a big plus so no need to drag chairs to the sand. We only spent one night but I would recommend. It's not the la playa in Naples, but it's $300 cheaper . Compared to the Pink Shell, it's smaller, less crowded. Again, I would recommend and was pleased with our family stay

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to compose a great review. We always try to implement hospitality 101, great customer service, everything in working order, and clean rooms. The fact that you would recommend says it all, thank you for being our guest.

My wife and I got away for a long weekend. We were made to feel welcome by front desk lady and from there it was great. Paying for beach chairs and umbrellas daily was a bit much, if you ask me. Room was nice with a good view.

User 01/04/2019

Hotel is in a great location. Beautiful grounds and kept very clean. I have stayed here in the past. However this time the office staff were very rude. Joy at the front desk was very sarcastic and not friendly. I understand it's spring break and the hotel is busy however that is absolutely no excuse to treat a guest the way that I was treated when I ask a question. I may seek another place to stay next year.

Beautiful surroundings, right on the beach. It was a short walk to shopping, dining and the pier. Breakfast was great, including gluten free options. There were some areas that were shaded from the sun, which was helpful. Just about the best sand you can imagine:)

We were there with a bus group for 10 days. The room was beautiful and very clean. We had a perfect view of incredible sunsets from our balcony. We were in walking distance to many places to eat and shop. The beach was wonderful for walks. The breakfast that was included was very good and the breakfast staff very kind and helpful. A cute parrot was in the lobby. Weather was too cold for pool or ocean but we enjoyed our walks looking for shells.

ikadash, Chicago, Illinois 25/03/2019

This hotel is located perfectly away from all the crazy traffic in Ft Myers beach. The hotel and grounds are kept immaculately clean. The breakfast could have included more fresh fruit but had plenty of choices. The view from our room on the 4th floor was beautiful. Great place to view the sunset. Pool was nothing fancy but kept at a great temperature and overlooked the beach. If back in Ft Myers would definitely stay again just to get that view from the balcony even if it's a bit expensive. The beach itself was great for walking although the plentiful seaweed did not make it very inviting to go in the water. Would recommend for the location, view and that it's managed very well.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the awesome review! Yes, we and all of our guest love our location, far enough away for piece and quiet and walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, and shops. It's a full time job keeping this ship in shape being right on the beach, and its always nice to read great reviews like yours and share with the employees. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you all again.

+ On the beach, nice view (depending on the room) + Nice Garden and few games o Parking might be tight, if many rooms are full. - Very small breakfast area, limited breakfast products - Expensive Sunbeds and others on the beach

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Yes, everywhere you go on this island, all of Ft Myers, this time of year you will have to wait for a seat anywhere you go and have to pay. We never have a problem with parking especially this time of year most people take a cab from the airport as you do not really need a car here and we have many more spaces than rooms. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

I can't begin to describe how awesome this place was!!! My wife and I traveled here from Nebraska and stayed here for our 10 year anniversary, and came down for a Twins game (huge Twins fans). We had the absolute BEST time at the Best Western Plus. We walked the beach to other resorts and while they were nice, we had all the privacy in the world here. We loved the chair rentals, heated pools, and the service was outstanding. We were so pumped for this trip, and it was EVERYTHING we had ever asked for. Thanks soooo much to the folks at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, as this was a time that I will NEVER forget. You guys absolutely ROCK!!! :)

Super vacation, super clean rooms and all face the beach with balconies with enough room for 2 chairs and table. Great to eat morning breakfast while watching the walkers on the beach and at night a cocktail watching the sunset. The pool is warn and clean. The grounds are beautiful and there is an area to sit and watch the people play shuffleboard. Best Western is located 1/4 mile from Time Square are and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. Plus public park (Bowditch) is a short walk away. All the staff was very friendly and very helpful.

The staff is amazing and very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and the breakfast is great. You are within walking distance of Time Square and many very good place to eat.

We had a great stay here. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. But what was incredible was that while showering I lost my earring down the drain. I really didn't expect to get it back but thought I would ask. The staff was very gracious and more than willing to try. The maintenance team removed the drain and sucked my earring out with a shop vac!! I was elated and so appreciative.

Don't let Best Western name deter you from staying here. Clean rooms with small kitchenette area. All rooms face the beach. Very friendly service. Free morning breakfast bar. Located right on beach. Nice size pool. About a 1/2 mile or less walking distance (sidewalks) to numerous bars, outdoor restaurants, beachy shops, etc...Great place for a short getaway. Traffic getting over the bridge on to the island can be tough, but you are away from where most is going once over the bridge. I recommend staying here.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. Yes we agree traffic on the north end of the island is nothing to the traffic headed southbound down the Island. Park and walk to all the restaurants and attractions is wonderful. Thanks for your commendation.

kenbug, Seattle, Washington 03/02/2019

We were a couple and stayed for 2 nights in a 2nd floor room. We found our stay to be just OK. Positives - 1. Clean facility located directly on the beach. 2. Free basic breakfast included. Included a couple of hot items (eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy). 3. Free parking. 4. Good location, within walking distance to main Fort Myers Beach restaurant/bar area. 5. Outdoor pool available. Pool is directly on beach. Negatives - 1. No fitness room included. 2. No room service available. 3. Breakfast area is too small for number of guests. 4. Nighttime front desk staff was somewhat grumpy. 5. No hot tub available. 6. Pool closed at dusk, so no early evening swim available. Overall property and service were just ok for us.

We go there every year from late Feb. to mid March. We enjoy staying in the 5th floor suite which has a separate bedroom and an extra long balcony which covers both the main living area and bedroom. Our suite overlooks the pool area and offers excellent views of the Gulf and the nicely-landscaped grounds where we usually spend part of our afternoons enjoying some drinks while we read a book or just relax after coming back from the mainland. The included breakfasts are nice and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. Not cheap, but really nice. All suites face the ocean.

southguy, Terrebonne, Canada 30/12/2018

We were so glad we had chosen this Hotel. Check-in was smooth. You already feel more than welcome. Thanks to Scott. We were given a King Room with a kitchen on the third floor and it happened to be a corner room (this is what I call added value) with a full ocean view. The room was kept super clean. Thanks to Kathy. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, utensiles etc. And those were extra clean and well disposed in cupboards. There is an in-room safe and a lot of space to put your stuff. And a magnificent view from inside the room and also outside on a large balcony which we used much. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. It was better than what we expected. A slight change of menu for the hot food every day, plus all the other basics. There was always plenty and nothing was missing. Thanks to the two ladies keeping the breakfast area in impeccable order. We never had any problems parking the car. Always plenty of space. Now the grounds and location: it is just plainly awesome. All is well kept and manicured with many chairs and benches under the palm trees. There is also a BBQ area for your convenience. Nice heated pool. Shuffleboard game which people seems to like much. Now the BEACH which is only a few steps away. I have to mention that it is easy to take a long walk on the beach and to get in and to get out of the ocean, especially for elderly people with sore legs. I've said it ha ha! You can rent 2 lounge chairs and umbrella for $26.50 per day from 9AM to 5PM. I have to admit that with all those advantages, we spent most of our time at the resort. The Pier, where you can fish, many gift shops, restaurants and liquor store are nearby. In conclusion, I want to thank Rich for his precious informations on how to drive easily to RSW Airport and thanks to Mily for a quick and easy check-out. All went so fine and everything exceeded my expectations. Not only this place is beautiful but the Staff also. Being back to the Cold, we have at least our memories and photos to warm us up. Many thanks! Oh I would hate myself to forget him. Say hello to Coco the Parrot who will greet you everyday.

Phillie_gal, Pinellas Park, Florida 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

roadtrips_12, Cromwell, Connecticut 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 !!!"

JanuszRoman, Europe 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.

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.

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!"

Teb08, San Antonio, Texas 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.

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.

Leslie2221, Greenville, Illinois 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.

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.

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.

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.

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"

jahkmh54, Melbourne, Florida 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.

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.

Sam S, Aventura, Florida, United States 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

My wife and I stayed one night on a road trip to Florida. The staff is friendly and helpful and the room was clean. Our room had a view of the ocean and pool. The bed was comfortable. It is a short walk to the center of town. The hotel offers a free typical hotel breakfast which satisfied our needs. Next time we come we will stay longer.

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.

allysonm91, Boston, Massachusetts 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!!!

Not having to drive is almost a vacation itself. Thanks again for choosing our property.

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.

"Great value for a balcony room on the gulf!"

chiefqueen, Temple, Texas 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.

We needed a place to stay last minute. We had a family emergency and missed our flights. We had to check out of our rental house at 10am. Millie and Joy were extremely helpful. We were able to get a room booked last min and within an hour had a room clean and early check in. We were able to get flights out the next day and they were also able to give us a late check out. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about places on the island. The free breakfast was amazing. We also had a great view!! We always rent a house when we stay but will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family!!

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

User 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".

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 12years: first only once a year but in the last 2 years, twice. The staff is not only progessional but part of our extended family. 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. We plan to return for many years ahead. Your hotel is the absolute BEST; so a huge thank you from this couple from New Hampshire. We both love you, CoCo!

Bogeyman_4, Bellevue, Washington 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.

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

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 !!

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. We do our best to honor all request but only have the rooms available that are checking out on your day of arrival. All the first floor rooms have a specific room type as the majority are mini suites.

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!

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.

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!

fritomann, Akron, Ohio 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

Beautifully decorated, outstanding position on the beach, amazing staff from the front desk to the cleaning crew, I love this hotel. You will not be disappointed in its location to FMB town area, sunset view, and of course Cocoa the parrot who has been in the lobby at the BW since 1985.

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.

Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to rent on the beach in front of the hotel and you can charge them to your room. Loved having a balcony that overlooked the ocean and the sunset. 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 would definitely stay here again.

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!

The Best Western Beach Resort, is a terrific hotel right on Ft Myers Beach. Rooms are clean, and the location is perfect because it is within a short walk to the pier area, and in that area are a lot of places to eat, bars and shops. Meanwhile, it is just off the main drag, so is relatively quiet at night. The best place to stay on the beach!

Jackie, Deb and crew do an outstanding job cleaning up after us, Blanca & Milena, in the breakfast room, keep shucking out food, always with smiling faces. The grounds are kept in beautiful condition & maintenance continually keeps everything in top-notch condition.We've stayed here for years, our kids and grands love it here, we've already made reservations for the next time, and look forward to returning.

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!

TBFan, Orlando, Florida 19/01/2018

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 ;)

ABPJDT, Houston, Texas 19/01/2018

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.

Tracy K, Indianapolis, Indiana 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. BW was a perfect place on the beach to view the show. Happy New Year. The Knecht's

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.

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.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
We have always felt the same , a bar would change our nice and quiet oasis. Like you said, just 5 minutes walk and you can hoop it up all you want. Thank you for the nice review and we hope to see you soon.

This BW Resort is a very clean,well kept beachfront hotel. This is our second stay, we asked for and received the same 5th floor room. We rented beach chairs and umbrella from a vendor associated with hotel. Overall, this is a fantastic hotel and will visit again.

Room decor is tired, views are great if on the waterside. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice having a small kitchenette to make a quick snack. Breakfast has nice variety for all tastes. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Location is great but dont make the room your entire experience, it will disappoint.

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 nice review. All rooms are on the beach side with balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, unless you are lucky enough to get a ground floor room, then you can just step out to the beach. We hope to see you again if your travels bring you our way.

"Breakfast nightmare"

1
markrE1699UQ, Weston, United States 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.

MarleneIllinois, Illinois, USA 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.

Hotel doesn't look like much from outside but has all you need. Amazing private beach, nice staff. Walking distance to shops and plenty of restaurants. Beautiful sunset from balcony. We had a very spacious handicap room which was great traveling with 2 kids. Beach chairs are a bit pricy. Breakfast is okay but nothing fancy. Great with all day complimentary coffee, latte, cappuccino in the lobby.

Joanne C, Rolling Meadows, Illinois 30/11/2017

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
surfermom, Lewes, Delaware 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.

The facility was clean, the staff friendly and the location great! Steps from the powder sands of the Gulf beach, the location was great for watching the sunset.

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.

BonzoCT, Connecticut 11/11/2017

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.

Milo_222, Dayton, Ohio 11/11/2017

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!

Reasonable room rates and spotless and well kept grounds. Located on a beautiful beach with small waves for the little ones. All around a true gem of a place with everything you need for a week at the beach with the family and still afford gas for to drive home. Heated pool next to beach is a big plus. Perfect holiday spot. Breakfast included and they are wellcoming of pets.

Ronald F, Lebanon 22/10/2017

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.

Loved it here! We stayed in a 2-bedroom, one bathroom suite on the first floor. We could see the kids on the beach and see the kids in the pool, all from our room! 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!!

Also, we were very impressed that the selections of breakfast items were changed everyday!! That was greatly appreciated since we spent a week at this hotel. Also convenient walk to Times Square area, and great walks on the beach :)

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.

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
User 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.

Karlene H, Fort Myers, Florida 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. For the past 10 years we have enjoyed this place, even after the hurricane they remodeled and came back strong, hotel staff and management are to be congratulated for keeping the place great.

"Every Room Faced the Beach."

Dale L, Kansas City, Missouri 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""

desertjoe, Nevada 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.

User 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.

Patti H, Dayton, Ohio 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!

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.

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.

zebrad, Midlands 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.

nmgayton, Orlando 09/07/2017

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.

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"

curlsg, London, United Kingdom 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.

"Amazing Beachfront Property"

Brian C, West Palm Beach, Florida 28/06/2017

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. We are always looking for ways to improve, guest input is the best. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

A hotel which is always well-presented, spotless, bountiful breakfast station and courteous and helpful staff.

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.

kg514, Cape Coral 13/06/2017

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.

JWags10, Holland, New York, United States 07/06/2017

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. Would definitely go back again They had water sport equipment on the beach seafood sail boats etc. Also full kitchen with dishes and stove top

Love the full length mirror with lighting and outlets to get ready while not in the bathroom. Breakfast is good with a variety of choices, serve yourself. Coffee machine is awesome!

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!

The Main Street shops and restaurants and pier is an easy walk to get to. Great Italian food at the corner of the pier. A couple of great restaurants like Nelly's and Sand Bar (great menu).

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. We did not rent a car and everything we needed was within a couple blocks and easy walking. Good shelling beach, especially if you rent a bike and ride down the beach to quieter areas.

Breakfast is good, especially if you like biscuits and gravy (which I do not). My only real complaint is that the room a/c unit is rather loud when it FREQUENTLY cycles on and off.

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!

Our room choice was reviewed and granted. Housekeeping staff is superb. Breakfast is fantastic with lots of choices and very delicious food. The adjoining beach area is clean and great for relaxation. Would highly recommend this for your stay at Fort Myers beach.

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.

Tom B, West Palm Beach, Florida 27/11/2016

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.

snorkelfam, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania 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.

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.

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.

Most of the staff has been the same over the past years, and they remember us from year to year, which also helps make the experience amazing!

Kim M, Uniontown, Ohio 03/11/2016

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

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.

TH-traveller-2013, Timonium, Maryland 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.

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.

tony2709, Aylesbury, United Kingdom 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)

User 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!!

Gaylia B, Louisville, United States 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.

Grammy6LongBeach_CA, Long Beach, CA 21/10/2016

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.

JaneE963, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 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.

User 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!.

My special thanks to Rich at the front desk. I needed some medical attention and he gave me directions to the nearest emergency facility including the fastest route. He also followed up with my health concerns every time we came in contact. It's really great to have a staff that puts the visitor's first.

This has to be the cleanest, most well staffed hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel is positioned perfectly on the beach and just a short walk to all of the entertainment offered in Times Square. Great value also.

brief47606, Englewood, Florida 23/09/2016

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.

SwissAirTraveler, Lausanne, Switzerland 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"

hotelforfun, Woodbridge, Canada 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 :-)

User 18/08/2016

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"

User 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!

Jon_Monica, Miami, Florida 16/08/2016

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!

User 15/08/2016

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.

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.

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.

Cathy F, Miami Lakes, Fl 09/08/2016

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.

Hotel and grounds were lovely. Beach was beautiful except the water. We were told the dirty murky water was due to dredging and over flow from a local large lake.. The water was very unappealing to me but everything else was great..

Tim M, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort, responded to this review
I will admit the water is disappointing this summer, to top that off we have had way too much rain. We are happy you enjoyed everything else and we hope to see you soon.

They do a great job here. Rooms are kept well- clean and updated! I prefer the south end of the beach because it's less crowded, but this location is still Great- right on the beach! The service is friendly and I would definitely recommend and return again!

Great hotel on beach close to pier. Beach width was perfect. Friends stayed in condo further south on the beach and the width was huge....football field from condo to water. Friendly staff great breakfast. Only negative was one elevator ran slow

Claudia R, Madison, Alabama 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.

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.

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"

Sue M, Moffat, United Kingdom 19/07/2016

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"

User 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.

David Z, Columbus, United States 05/07/2016

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.

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.

travelgirlkw01, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 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.

Check-in was streamlined. Parking was not covered but adequate. Everything was very clean, well groomed and maintained. All of the staff was very pleasant. This is not Disney or Vegas, but it was a very pleasant stay.

This hotel is one of the best on Ft. Myers Beach! The staff is friendly and the place is clean and very welcoming. Breakfast is amazing. Something for everyone. Location is perfect for going to Times Square and enjoying a little nightlife.

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. The best on FMB is what we like to hear. There is something to be said about be able to walk to all the attractions.

"Way to kick off the summer!"

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.

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. It sounds like you got to enjoy all we have to offer. Sorry about the trash,that is something the housekeepers should have taking care of daily.

"Great location right on the beach"
