RobQ5820, Carmel, Indiana 04/05/2022

The Best Western Plus on Fort Myers Beach is one of the best managed hotels I visit; I have stayed at this hotel since 1985, most recently in January '22, my wife and I are visiting again May 6-19th, 2022. This hotel is well managed, the staff is extremely attentive to guests, as well as the longevity of employees working at the hotel is impressive. As a regular Bonvoy (Marriott), loyalest, I would place the Best Western Plus in my top 5 hotels worldwide. Although minimal amenities, the location, cleanliness, and staff more than make up for the lack of amenities, like a restaurant or full service gift shop. However, you are within walking distance of great restaurants and gift shops, so really no loss. I would give this hotel 5-stars.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. Your business is very important to us and we value your feedback. It is repeat guests like you that make the wheels roll a little smoother. Anytime we can be compared to Bonvoy is an incredible compliment.

This is a great hotel on a fantastic beach. The beach sand was so soft and lots of shells for the collector. The heated pool was clean. The rooms are a little dated but clean and have a wonderful view of the gulf.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the great review. Mostly, thank you for being a guest of ours. Updates are coming, slower than normal because of the supply chain. We hope to see you again soon.

Peter K, Excelsior, Minnesota 24/04/2022

We visited first week of March. Great weather and spring breakers were at a minimum. Right on the beach and easy to rent chars. A short walk to Times square for restaurants and shopping. Well equipped kitchen, very clean everywhere and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was a little weird because of the hotel's covid protocol, but I understand it is back to normal now. Keep up the great job!

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us!! We also thank you for the great review. Yes, breakfast is back to normal now and running smooth. We will keep the ship running clean and hope to see you again soon.

Ron F, Milwaukee, United States 18/04/2022

The room, the pool, the beach, and all the other amenities were clean and easily accessible. The rooms were amazingly quiet and the beds were so comfortable my wife and I got the best sleep we have had in a really long time including in our home. Despite having one of the main roads out front and beach goers, some with kids, on the beach side we didn't hear a sound.

User 17/04/2022

We stayed at the Fort Meyer location and it was so much more than expected. It was by far the most beautiful of all the places located on the beach. (We walked up and down the beach each day) The pool was heated, beach towels were furnished every day. There was a service on the beach where you could rent your umbrellas w/chairs, rent a jet ski or panel board. This staff was warm and friendly and the breakfast was great with eggs, gravy, biscuits amongst other things being served. Highly recommend.

woodster378, Andover, United Kingdom 17/04/2022

Didn't want to leave. Location is perfect being literally on the beach and the perfect distance from Times Square to be quiet at night but only a 5 minute walk either by beach or path. Rooms are clean with kitchen facilities and great balconies, all overlooking the sea. AC was good and quiet. Room was serviced every day to a high standard and stocked well with toiletries including soaps, shampoo and conditioners. Breakfast was simple and buffet style but more than enough and varied each day. The staff were constantly keeping everything stocked and clean. Coffee and tea is available 24x7 but for any items needed, staff are available, vending machines are on site and a 7 Eleven only 2 or 3 minutes walk away. Car parking on site is free for guests with elevator and stairs if needed. Beach has the perfect sand, soft and peppery at the back and hard near the sea for good walking. I generally only review when it's very good or very bad, I guess you can tell which type this is. Highly recommend.

We've stayed at our share of high end hotels and we were impressed with our Best Western experience. The rooms are a bit small but have everything you need including a full size refrigerator, microwave, cooktop plus cabinets full of the essentials. The room was updated and very clean. The breakfast bar was delicious and plentiful. The pool has plenty of chairs, towels and a beautiful view. Cabanas, umbrellas, chairs available for rent just foot steps to the beach & water. We will stay here again!

We have been staying here for many years and they never disappoint. Every room faces the ocean, the pool is heated and located right on the beach so you get the best of both the beach and the pool, and they serve breakfast every morning.

Loved the location and exterior of the property. Rooms were as expected. Beds were comfortable except the pull out sofa that was very outdated and dirty. Staff was smoking below our balcony which was annoying to smell on a beach vacation.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and leaving a review, everyone of them are to be learned from. I apologize for for the sofa bed, definitely not our style. It has been windy but we look for another spot for the smokers. We hope to see you again soon.

r0ndas2019, Indianapolis, Indiana 25/03/2022

My first stay here & surprised how nice it was. The court yard really gives it the resort feel. The staff was very friendly. I love the fact that the room gets checked by maintenance before you check in! The location is walkable to Time Square if you don't want to wait on the free Tran. I didn't like the wooden beach chairs. I rented the umbrella & layed on the ground. Others bought chairs & umbrellas from the souvenir shops.

PSOConnell, Chelmsford, Massachusetts 25/03/2022

Rooms spacious, not noisy, pool quite nice as well. Whole property is well maintained If you're going to leave this idyllic spot for a day trip, the traffic can get a bit much. Plan accordingly. Otherwise walking to everything is quite easy, or do a moped, bike or in some case a golf cart. Beautiful wide beach to walk on, bike on, sit on, star gaze on, play games on, etc. Plenty of reasonably priced chair with umbrella rentals conveniently right in front of hotel. Scads of shells to pick up for a memory of this lovely area. Park the car & stay awhile.

Bee_and_El, Kalamazoo, Michigan 20/03/2022

We spent seven nights at the Best Western Plus. It is a short walk to Times Square, but it is very quiet and a family friendly resort. The staff are exceptional and go out of their way to provide a great experience. Lovely grounds and beach. Rooms are slightly small, but very well appointed (the kitchen is a big plus). Did I mention how quiet it is? No noise from other rooms.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you very much for the great review. We have 1 and 2 bedroom suits as well, hopefully you can come back and see us , sooner than later. Thanks again!

User 13/03/2022

You will avoid quite a bit of traffic with this northern location off the bridge. It is only ~7-10 minute walk to Time Square. I felt very safe and it has adequate parking. No valet parking needed. The view from the room is breathtaking. It is very clean and the kitchen is a bonus. Our mattress was very comfortable. In front of this hotel, chair/umbrella rentals are available which is a huge plus.

gobabigo11, Louisville, Kentucky 04/03/2022

I have nothing but good things to say about this resort. From the time we arrived until the time we checked out, our experience was very pleasant. Our flight came in at 6:00am and we arrived at the hotel at 7:00am. We asked is there was anyway we could get our room a little earlier. They not only got us in a couple hours early, but fed us breakfast, gave us our parking pass, and let us enjoy the amenities while we waited. The breakfast had a good variety and coffee was available all day. The grounds and the beach were very nice. Every room had a beach view and the pool is heated. Cocoa the hotel parrot was in the lobby and exchanged greetings with me. I've read reviews saying the water pressure in the shower was low, but I beg to differ. Our water was always hot and the water pressure was perfect !

User 28/02/2022

Great hotel, location and breakfast. The room and property were well maintained, The view of the beach from the room was amazing. Restaurants and shopping are in walking distance. My only complaint is that a gentleman at the front desk was very rude to us when we asked for two parking passes. He could have explained the parking limitations in a much more courteous way. We actualy did get the two parking passes after a long lecture.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and for taking your time to compose a nice review. Sorry you thought he was rude I am sure he wasn't, he just doesn't like seeing people getting towed. Not easy for anyone. We hope to see you soon.

Lynnep_Willerby, Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom 21/02/2022

I booked this hotel 11 months in advance ahead of our joint 50th Birthday and requested a room with a fabulous view. Upon arrival we were able to check in early and it became obvious why when we got in the room, with a view of .......a palm tree! How could they get it so wrong. we had to mess about complaining then had to check out the following morning and store our luggage until another room was ready and I just felt very undervalued after not being able to visit for two years due to border restrictions, I felt like they hadn't even looked at my message ahead of my stay which incidentally was for 6 nights at roughly £400 a night! Poor, very poor.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
We do our best to honor all request however we have been running nearly 100% every night and the only rooms available are the rooms that checked out on your day of arrival. We guarantee room types but not room numbers. We are sorry we could not get you in the room you requested.

cleveland6, Toledo, Ohio 13/02/2022

Chose the BWBR because we wanted a room on the beach. The hotel is a bit older but is very well maintained and CLEAN. Employees are all very friendly. All rooms are beachfront and have a small kitchenette with a full refrigerator, stove top and microwave. All of the kitchen basics are included (dishes, pans, toaster, etc.) and are clean and in good condition. Rooms were smaller but very comfortable. We had a king sized bed (one of the most comfortable I have had in a hotel), a chair, a dresser, 2 night stands, small breakfast bar with 2 bar stools. The bathroom is also small but adequate. Biggest negative was it took a VERY long time to get hot water both at the sink and the shower, but we learned to let the shower run for a few minutes. Also 2 chairs on the balcony where we sat and listened to the waves. It is a 10-15 min walk to everything (Bowditch Park to the north, Times Square to the south). Rooms were very quiet - never heard anyone next to us, above or below. There is a heated pool with plenty of lounge chairs. Beach towels are provided. There is a free breakfast daily. Breakfast was basic free hotel breakfast food. Due to Covid you weren't allowed to get your own food however there were 2 very nice women who got it for you. Hours were 7-10:30 am which I found very helpful - it never seemed to be too busy. The beach is beautiful. Warm sand, very clean.

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

Sharon C, Missouri 08/02/2022

Traveled last month with family and had 3 rooms. Here are the pros and cons of this resort based on our stay: PROS: Location. 10-15 min walk to everything. Very convenient. On the beach, which was wide, and all rooms are beachfront. Refunded money for 1 room reserved that I had to cancel due to family member getting sick right before we arrived, and I appreciated that. Rooms were very quiet - literally never heard anyone next to us, above or below. Full kitchen was great. Heated pool was nice on cooler days. Breakfast staff (older woman-didn't get her name) was super nice. CONS: Rooms are dated, barely any water pressure in the shower, bathroom sink was plumbed opposite (hot was cold/cold was hot) and couldn't hardly get any hot water at the sink; housekeeping was VERY hit/miss (ie 2 different days they literally only made 1 out of the 2 beds in our room), never swept the floors (I did with the filthy/hairy broom in the closet), overheard employee being very vocal and vulgar about guests; laundry room hadn't been swept/wiped down in a LONG time; for the price point of these rooms, the beach chairs and laundry use should be included; not enough chairs at the pool; room towels and beach towels are pretty thin/worn; quality of breakfast was below average. Again, for the price point I didn't see the quality/service - best thing was location.

"Stay Away from the Cottage"

JOEMK, Clayton, New York 06/02/2022

We are staying in the cottage and are extremely disappointed. We are spending $550.00+ a night for very dirty accommodations. It's obvious it has not had a good cleaning in a significant amount of time. This is way beyond asking for housekeeping to come spruce it up. The regular rooms may be fine but the cottage certainly isn't. Joy at the front desk is excellent.

Famof4249, Glencoe, United Kingdom 06/02/2022

Breakfast could be improved, staff serve the food. I understand the idea behind it; however, while waiting for staff you are standing in a crowded area in a line in between all the tables full of people. The tables were not wiped down between guests' use nor did the staff wear masks while serving the food. If you are attempting to make breakfast "safer" then either go all the way or leave the breakfast the way it was. I would prefer breakfast return to the way it was. Also there was no donuts or muffins of any kind the 5 days were there. My kids were disappointed Coco was not at the hotel during the week we were there. The pool area was great, clean and the water was nice and warm even though the weather was cool so we could still swim which was very appreciated. Have stayed here twice and would return.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. No real easy fix with breakfast other than making sure staff wipes down the tables. The majority of our guests like breakfast as we have it now with our staff making the plates for guests instead of having up to 150 people going through the buffet line. Coco has been sick, he had a stroke and has been recovering at the owners house. He returns for a few days of the week and is still on medications. We look forward to your return.

User 04/02/2022

Really enjoyed our stay. Can't beat the location. Close to the beach and pool with a short walk to Times Square. The view of the pool and beach from our balcony was great. Loved watching the sunset. Breakfast was a bit of a challenge despite the phenomenal efforts by the staff (Covid protocols, broken coffee machine). Broken vending machine also presented a challenge but the front desk reimbursed me with no questions asked. Overall, a great stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Just returned, after 2 yrs, to the Best Western. Nothing has changed, except the breakfast where Blanca, Cindy and Letty go above & beyond to serve you a generous variety with smiling faces every am. Joy always assures our room is ready for us, and very helpful from behind the desk. The cleaning staff does a great job - especially Darlene who, every day, did a super job. We really appreciate the lovely grassy area with the 'view' - also available from every room. Already made return reservations, hopefully! They take care of you.....that's what they do!

Chris B, Caledonia, Michigan 19/01/2022

Upon arrival the parking lot and building exterior look nice, it's once you step into the lobby and dated rooms is where is going bad. Room was dirty at best. Haven't cleaned the tile floors is years as the grout is severely stained. Walls and doors are in bad shape with paint and marks all over them. Bath tub caulk was cracked and moldy. No water pressure and shower was either freezing or hot no middle ground. The grounds are very nice with a nice grassy area and plenty of beach front. For what you pay nightly I was surprised to see a upcharge for the beach chairs. Over all I would not stay here again as the staff, rooms and overall fell was just not top notch for the price paid.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
I am sorry you feel this way, we have several couples and families that have been returning 10 or more years, that's just the return guest that stay over 3 weeks at a time and have already booked for next year. Obviously everyone does not like the same, we get many more guest that rave about our décor and employees than not.

BW was clean, close to all the action and the beach was only steps away from our door. We have stayed there before and it's our destination spot for many years to come. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning and then the pool and beach after. It was so close to Town Square for entertainment and night life. Within walking distance was a big factor for us staying on the beach.

We've stayed all 3 hotels on this beach & are now only returning to this resort. The location & comfort are the absolute best. Being able to walk out on a perfectly manicured lawn &/or beach is the best way to start a day. Landscaper Bill was there & answered questions about the lawn & trees. I'm impressed that Bill personally was there doing the work. Rich at the front desk has been there awhile, and remains positive, friendly & helpful. Debbie was also helpful at check-in. We missed seeing their bird Coco this trip, which is another highlight. Room & breakfast service staff are exceptional. Everywhere to go is walkable with their location. Water sports are available in front of hotel. Having a refrigerator, stove & outdoor grill is a bonus. Amazing Sunsets, with every room having a balcony overlooking beautiful palms, beach, ocean. Oh, also shuffle board & Adirondack chairs are a hit on lawn. WE LOVE THIS HOTEL!!!!

Close enough to walk to all the attractions and far away from the crowds. We are the only property on FMB that has a grassy tropical palm courtyard. Thank you for compliments on the staff they appreciate it. We look forward to your return.

CamnPam, Clayton, North Carolina 15/12/2021

December 1st - 4th 2021. All the Best Western Plus staff were amazing. Front Dest, Breakfast server, Housekeepers and Beach Rental greeted us each day as family and treated us the same. Room 212 was perfect. Directly over the pool and direct view of the beach and sunsets each day. Hotel was the perfect location. Close enough to walk and enjoy the surrounding shops and restaurants but far enough to avoid late nightlife crowds. Beach in front of hotel is white soft sand. Chairs and Umbrella can be rented if you do not have your own. $30/day for 2 chairs and an umbrella. This worked out perfect for us. Great location for long walks on the beach. Joy, at the front desk. No words can describe her dedication to Best Western and its occupants. She went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and went to great lengths to make sure we would make our Saturday morning (8am) Key West Express Ferry Ride. Thank you all! We will be back soon.

Can't say enough about the staff at this hotel. They are kind, helpful, and friendly. From the reception staff, housekeepers, kitchen staff, beach rental staff, to the custodians; we received 5-star treatment. All rooms above the ground floor have sea views. The beach in front of the hotel is a sandy wide expanse. You can walk for miles, which we love. The pier, restaurants, and shops are a quick ten minute walk south. But the hotel is far enough away to miss the massive crowds in that area. You do have to rent chairs and umbrellas ($30.00 a day for 2 chairs and an umbrella), or bring your own. This seems to be the norm on the island. Rooms were clean, with updated kitchenettes. Beds were firm, which we like. Balcony gave great views including pretty sunsets. Enjoyed seeing starfish, sand dollars, and lots of shells, as we walked along the northern end of the island. Keep an eye out for dolphins playing off shore. When we come back to Ft. Myers Beach, this will be where we stay.

User 04/12/2021

This was so much more beautiful than what the pictures were online. It was a tropical paradise. Very conveniently located close to Times Square and many restaurants and shopping areas. A free trolley to pick you up and drop you off each day going all over Fort Myers Beach area. Beautiful nature reserves to tour. So much to do and see nearby. The hotel itself was absolutely beautiful and a tropical dream. Very clean, continental breakfast was served every day and the heated pool was a delight.

Loved the location right on the beach. Room was very large with great kitchen area. Well sized bathroom. Hotel had lots of chairs and seating outside facing beach as well as nice sized pool. Each room has a good sized balcony. Very quiet for November, not overly crowded on beach. Great beach area for looking for shells and sand was firm enough for bike riders. Walking distance to some downtown shops/restaurants.

Peggy M, Cleveland, Ohio 15/11/2021

We stayed at the Best Western Plus for 3 nights last week. We were VERY happy with our choice! The hotel is small in a good way. SO close to the beach! The pool was very nice. Not too crowded at all. We were able to rent beach chairs/umbrellas/cabanas every day at the beach for a reasonable price. The grounds of the hotel were very nice. Spotless and the landscaping was beautiful. You always saw a worker sweeping or cleaning the grounds. The free breakfast was a plus. Different menu daily (some things like waffles stayed the same). Room was on the smaller side but we didn't care; we weren't in there much. Our balcony was right in front of the beach and gulf. So beautiful and relaxing. Short walk (maybe 5-7 minutes) to Times Square for dinner/drinks/shopping. Only complaint would be that there is no food anywhere after breakfast. I think they should sell sandwiches/snacks during the day. We didn't want to walk to the 7/11 or Times Square during the day in our bathing suits for a sandwich.

Great location, great staff and a wonderful place to escape for five days. I had a few questions prior to our arrival and my emails were answered nearly immediately, which was a nice change of pace from some other chains I've stayed at. Check-in was easy and since our flight was bumped up four hours it was much appreciated that they were able to let us do that early. The location on the beach is perfect, but if a pool is more your style, it's clean and there's plenty of seating available. The free breakfast was always served with a smile, and it was a great start to the day. Loved having the small kitchen, so we could use the refrigerator and microwave for drinks and snacks.

It was great to be able to walk out the front door and be right on the beach and also walkable to all the downtown shops and restaurants. The beds were comfy, my ONLY complaint is the pillows were awful and could use replacement. We would definitely stay here again.

We left hectic Miami behind with the intention of finding a calm place to stay. We found it at the Best Western in Fort Myers Beach. The blond haired desk clerk who checked us in was very friendly and conversational. Our room, like all of the rooms in the hotel has a balcony room facing the ocean. The balcony chairs are comfortable. The room has a good-sized TV with numerous cable channels, including premium channels. The bathroom is spacious. As you enter the room there's a small kitchen area with a countertop and two chairs. There's a full-sized refrigerator, a small stovetop, and a microwave oven. They have a kitchen stocked with dishes, eating utensils, etc. The pool is nice and warm. It is also clear and clean looking. There are plenty of lounge chairs. There are tables with umbrellas. We have enjoyed the tropical style gardens with Adirondack chairs. From there or the beach you can view beautiful sunsets. Breakfast consisted of standard hotel fixings, with eggs, sausage, fruit, and cereal. We are spending a total of four nights here and we have enjoyed ourselves.

This was our second time within 3 months at BWR and in the process of booking again for January. Honestly, I don't event look anywhere else. This resort has everything for our family. I can't say enough about the location. We do not rent a car because we can walk everywhere. Breakfast included makes for a quiet calm morning not having to run out to eat and the ladies at the breakfast area are wonderful. Front desk staff always are friendly and helpful. I must give lots of credit to the cleaning staff as well. Sometimes they get overlooked but not in my review. The attention to detail when cleaning rooms is above expectations and I thank you for that. I could go on and on but the fact that we have stayed twice and having no need to look anywhere else says it all. Thank you for making our stays fantastic!!

We just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. The customer service was exceptional. We had a dinner reservation one night and our scheduled Lyft didn't show. Rich went above and beyond to assist us with transportation and ensure we got to our reservation. Service feels personal like a family-owned business; the ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful as well. We were sad to leave Coco the parrot as we thoroughly enjoyed interacting with him every day. The beach was wonderfully clean and uncrowded. The view from our room was breathtaking. The free breakfast was good and plentiful. Beach towels are available in the lobby. We loved the chairs and umbrellas on the beach and thought the rental price was reasonable; they offer a discount if you book them for multiple days. Many activities available on-site. We had some wonderful seafood at nearby restaurants within walking distance. It was a wonderful, relaxing trip that was made easy by the customer service and amenities offered at this hotel.

987AM, NAPERVILLE 25/06/2021

We stayed at the BW Beach Resort for 2 nights in early June. We were so impressed with the resort that we would love to return at some time. It was interesting to chat with several others staying at the hotel who said that they come often, some yearly. We could see why. Checking in was very easy, and the two ladies at the front desk were very welcoming (Debbie and Jordan) although whenever I spoke with someone at the front desk, they were always friendly. Our room was ready even though the hotel was full and it was not quite noon. We chose BW Beach Resort because we wanted a place that was on a private beach and were certain to have an ocean view. We had all of that (room 412), and the beach itself is absolutely beautiful. The white sand is soft and lovely to walk along. The walk to the gulf was such a short distance from the building and you can go quite far before you're over your head. We rented umbrella and chairs one day which couldn't have been easier (set it up the afternoon before, with the guys working the booth right on the beach). We spent one afternoon while it rained on our patio overlooking the gulf, as well as evenings, listening to the waves. We kept our door ajar as another reviewer wrote, to listen throughout the night. The hotel was very clean, well maintained, and our room was large enough and updated. Full refrigerator, mini-kitchen area, but we pretty much only used fridge for storing cold drinks and making ice, and the sink was nice to use to wash up a few things. Bed was very comfortable. It will be nice when the breakfast area can be self-serve again, but there was a nice selection and we could go back for seconds. The tables and chairs outside were great for breakfast, and we often sat in the Adirondack chairs when we wanted to be out of the sun and read. The pool has a good selection of lounge chairs and they are perfect to watch the sun set over the water.

We were in room 307 but had to move to 305 due to the sewer smell in 307. Maintenance poured some bleach down the drain but it only helped for a while. Sewer smell is somewhat common at Fort Meyers Beach (FMB) especially when it rains. The Best Western is a nice hotel and very clean. Post COVID they only clean your room when you ask. While they did have a budget breakfast buffet they have employees that get the food for you. You basically stand in line in the lobby and when it is your turn you tell them what you want. Then you can sit inside elbow to elbow with others or go outside and find somewhere to sit and eat. Most days there was a wide assortment including eggs and bacon or sausage. A few of the employees getting the food for the customers were nice others not so much. I got barked at one morning when I asked about bacon with "look at the menu" in a snide fashion. No problem, no tip in the tip jar for you. The pool was pretty much useless for us as large families would claim corners of the pool deck with tables and pile their stuff up on the tables to "claim" their space each day even if they were out in the ocean. All the room are oceanfront with balconies which is nice but the balconies are useless if you have you A/C on in the room as the A/C unit is on the balcony which causes a lot of noise and heat. There are two washers and dryers (3rd floor) that are coin-operated but one of the washers was out of order. The shuffleboard area seemed to really be a place for kids to slam the pucks around. I only saw one couple actually play shuffleboard in four days. The rates in FMB are through the roof right now as COVID wind down has places jacking up their rates to offset the COVID losses (my opinion). Our rate of 386 a night had a nightly tax of 25.10 and a bed tax of 19.31 ( about 430 a night) which is a lot more than I paid pre-COVID in FMB. For a little more I can go to Mexico to an all-inclusive through Costco. That said FMB was packed, more so than I have seen in the six years I have been going. I will stay away until the prices get sensible and things settle down on the gulf coast and the vacation frenzy is over. The BW is a good hotel, just not my preference so when I do go back I will stay someplace else. BTW the City really needs to put a police officer out to direct traffic at the pier area. In the evening's traffic is backed up halfway up the bridge while pedestrians hold up traffic in the crosswalks.....that has been a problem in FMB for years.

This was a great choice for a Ft Meyers Beach stay. It is within walking distance from attractions and shopping and away from traffic jams. Staff couldn't be more welcoming and friendly. I am in the mattress business. These beds were the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. Breakfast free every morning from a great kitchen staff is a great value for families.

"Fantastic Long Weekend"

User 22/06/2021

My wife and I just returned from Fort Myers yesterday. Our stay at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort was excellent! We went fir a long Anniversary Weekend. The moment we arrived we were impressed with how clean the resort was. Employees could be seen cleaning and disinfecting all areas constantly. Our king room was very clean and comfortable. Our view of the gulf on the 4th floor was fantastic. When you walk out towards the pool and beach you are literally steps away from the beach! If you aren't a beach person, the pool was warm and very clean. It even overlooked the beach and gulf! When we arrived the staff behind the desk were so friendly and helpful. This was our first time there so I asked for some recommendations for restaurants. We took their advice and every one was spot on! For our anniversary dinner they recommended a place on the bay that was excellent. We took advantage of the free breakfast offered twice. The food was wonderful. Due to Covid you had to ask the two very nice servers for what you wanted and brought it to you with a smile! The Best Western was a huge hit in my book! We are already making plans to go back in a few months! I have no reservations at highly recommending this resort to anyone heading to Fort Myers.

baddabin6, Jacksonville, Florida 15/06/2021

We stayed 6/11-14 in room 413. It has a great view however if you are looking for the sunset there are two palm trees that block the sunset view. So just go down to the pool and watch. The pool closes at sundown. We were thinking about booking a ground floor room. Glad we didn't. Families with young kids and pets enjoy the ground floor. We enjoyed privacy on our balcony. Breakfast is given to you instead of buffet style which was great. The hotel location is walking distance, a half mile to the main Times Square area. Great location North of Times Square. Because of covid the maid service is limited by request only. We thought this hotel was a great choice and room location was great, ice is on the 3rd floor.

The Best Western Plus Beach Resort blew my expectations away. The staff was extremely friendly and the Resort provides wonderful ocean view rooms. The pool, beach, room and breakfast were all great. The town is a short 5 minute walk away where you can shop, eat and explore the pier. Overall had a great experience and would return!

The hotel staff goes above and beyond to accommodate their guests! Specifically, the front desk manager Rich. He saved the day and helped switch us to a different room to better fit our stay with an 8 month old baby. The rooms were clean, beach was beautiful, and it was the perfect location for our first family vacation. Also, it made me more at ease that they took COVID precautions with their complimentary breakfast buffet. The staff had masks and wore gloves to serve the food! We WILL be back!

User 14/05/2021

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in May. The beach location is superb, you are only a few hundred feet from the beach to your room. You are paying for the location because the hotel is nothing special very few amenities to go along with the high price that the rooms will cost you per night. The rooms were clean and that's what matters to me. The breakfast was free and better than I was anticipating. Our biggest gripe was the coffee, the coffee at breakfast was horrible folders out of a machine. The coffee makers in the rooms are those single cup jobbies that make bad coffee also. We finally found a place 2 miles down the road that had a decent brew. When you are paying 369 per night you would think a place would have good coffee one way or another. The Time Square area where all the shops and restaurants is a 1/3 of a mile walk which was nice. And to be honest I wasn't real impressed with that area. Very old buildings some of the beach restaurants had some real bad odors coming from them when you walk in we actually walked out of the Salty Crab horrible smell in the hall when we entered. The best place to eat with awesome food is the Snug Harbor bar and grill at the end of the street on the pier. Would I stay again the Best Western beach hotel? Hell ya the beach location is the best on the entire beach.

This hotel is one of Fort Myer's Beach best kept secrets! It is just north of the square (within walking distance) where there is something for everyone but still far enough away from the square for your stay to be quiet and enjoyable. All rooms are poolside and beachfront and the beach shoreline is very close. The amenities are excellent and we had our own beach chairs and an umbrella everyday! We will definitely be returning for more weekend getaways at this resort!

Hotel was very clean, breakfast was well cooked, staff very help full, grounds very well kept, some rooms Palm trees obstruct the view of the beach that you want to see from the patio, Beach chairs and umbrellas have a charge that you see in the advertised picture on web page, no mention of charge until you set in one, two chairs and umbrella $30.00 per day, why not a charge per hour or two, no way to stay out there all day. Taxi from airport $50.00 for 16 miles and about 40 minutes depending on traffic.

subluxator, Vernal, Utah 02/05/2021

Location, location, location. You can't beat this location for being on the beach and close to Times Square. The rooms are very subpar and wreak of musty mold. When bringing to the attention of management we were told its just how it is. The Ladies in the breakfast area were the only negative experience we had in all of Southwest Florida. They are extremely rude and feel put out to do their job. This was very unfortunate as every one else was very pleasant and welcoming. We would love to come back to this area but for the money will go somewhere else and hope for the money to find some place that doesn't wreak of mold and somewhere hopefully not treated so rudely as the breakfast staff here.

Best Western is located a few blocks from the Square with all the congestion on the other side. We were able to use the beach and then the pool to cool off. Room had full frig/kitchen. Quiet. Free breakfast was really good with changes to menu daily. Best part was check out was 11:00 but we were encouraged to use pool and beach all day until we needed to leave for the airport. Staff very accommodating. No question about it, we'd come back here without looking any further as it had everything.

Solid hotel option in Fort Myers Estero Beach area. Short walk to Time Square Village and awesome beachfront access/pool area/views. Clean and nicely decorated; little out of date but it works. Nothing special with the free breakfast but it was fine as well. Lumpy pillows and thin bedding made the sleeping part a little disappointing, but it was solid for the price and location.

In a time when people are afraid to travel I thought it important to write this review. We are currently at the Best Western Resort Plus on Ft. Myers Beach. This place is spotless... rooms, lobby, pool, etc. In fact you can smell the cleaning supplies everywhere you go. Some things have changed due to Covid but they in no way are negative. The staff at the front desk has truly worked hard to attend to every guests needs. Every single time I come here they are friendly and accommodating. We stay here a lot. Some changes: 1.) Breakfast is no longer serve yourself. There is a lovely hostess that serves you what you want. All you have to do is tell her what you would like. I actually found this to be awesome and I hope it continues because it keeps people from touching, coughing, or breathing on food that others would like to enjoy. 2.) You now have to ask for towels, however, they will gladly provide you with what you need. 3.) They are working on the roof..that is true. However, it's not intrusive and let's be honest work has to be done to keep the place in tip top shape. 4.) If you are one of their Diamond Elite members they no longer offer the option of 2 snacks a day. Instead they offer you 500 points. Quite honestly, I had no idea snacks were offered all these times I stayed here so that is not a big deal to me. There are restaurants, a 711, shopping, etc., for anything you need. And it's all within walking distance. 5.) Masks... yes, they are dreaded but necessary and you need them. I actually got upset yesterday but not by BWR staff. The guy working the umbrella/chairs on the beach stand literally at 3 PM, at the 1st umbrella, put a large family right on top of us. He added 6 chairs and an extra umbrella, along with the people laying on towels l12 inches from our chairs. They were totally unconcerned about social distancing. I had to move our chairs. We were there all day and no way should that of occurred. Courtesy goes a long way. In my case I have a heart condition. I need people to follow the rules even if they don't like it. Lastly, my husband has a hard time getting away to travel. Yesterday we didn't get our usual room. I drove the staff crazy and once the people checked out of the room we like they moved us. I can't tell you how something so simple was important to us. Through my annoyance the staff, and Rich/the manager, remained friendly and patient. Housekeeping... we always tip because they work so hard. Don't forget them. Times are hard. Some went without checks for months during the shut down. And believe me I know 1st hand how very grateful they are. They are the sweetest.

We came here on our honeymoon, with no knowledge of the area, just that we wanted something with a beach that was driving distance to the Red Sox spring training park. This hotel is perfectly situated, 2/10ths of a mile from the bustling Times Square with its shops and restaurants, but far enough away to allow some quiet time. every room has an ocean view and a kitchen! The beach is gorgeous, there's also a pool and shuffleboard. The cleaning staff is meticulous.

We were in town to attend to a sad family matter. Our stay was wonderful from the moment our driver dropped us at the front door. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was just as requested and matched advertisement description. It was clean tended to inside and out. We did not take advantage of the breakfast although it was offered and many did. Plates were prepared and handed to guests due to COVID restrictions. When we requested more coffee, housekeeping quickly retrieved some from their office and hung a bag with it on our door. Pool was smaller than expected, but heated and clean. Beach sport rentals were right there and reasonable. Not a big high end resort, but clean and comfortable with great staff!

View was fabulous, when I first arrived the sliding glass balcony door wouldn't open buy maybe 12 inches. I immediately called front desk and someone was sent right up and he fixed it so it would open but handle lock was very hard to lock so I used the top security lock. The refrigerator cooling temp knob was broken so I had to use a knife to turn the knob to control the temperature. And the room wasn't as clean as I expected and floor felt sandy and was extremely slippery even with sandals or slippers on.

Our winter in WI has been brutal and we truly needed to escape. The BWPFMB gave us the warm and wonderful refuge we were desperately seeking. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the location was perfect - within walking distance to plenty of restaurants and shops. Our room (all of the rooms) offered a spectacular view of the gulf and its picturesque sunsets each night. This hotel offered everything we were looking for- an escape and refuge from winter's, everyday life's ( not to mention Covid's) grasp. We were able to relax, reconnect and recharge. Many thanks for what you do best - hospitality- it does not go unnoticed!

This hotel is older but very clean. Rooms are a bit small for having 2 double beds. We booked late so all that was available and we were only staying 3 nights. We sorely underestimated the size of bed we needed for comfort. However, the beds and linens are very comfortable otherwise. The kitchenette was a plus. There was a pool, shuffleboard and Small playground for kids. We were right on the beach. Full breakfast is available with staff serving (covid restriction). The biscuits were fantastic! The staff were friendly. Everything was within walking distance so it met our needs for a short stay and lounging at the beach. Parking was easy with large spots. (Someone still managed to hit our rental but its not the hotels issue that people can't park. )

Arrived at room and was 1 room 2 beds, wife called front desk said there was nothing they could do. Ended up daughter and family staying and wife and I drove 45 minutes back home and stayed. Drove back both mornings to play on beach. Cost us over $1000 for 2 nights, would not refund us any money back. Never Again

"Worst experience ever"

User 16/02/2021

Worst experience I've had in 30 years of traveling. Booked a suite for my husband, daughter and her family of 4, with a baby. Got a single room with 2 queen beds. Paid over 500 dollars a night. Never again with. Best western. Stick to better hotel chains.

Y4674DIjeanneb, you booked your reservation on expedia and it clearly describes the room type. There are also photos of the room as well clearly showing that it is one large room. Also you have two king beds not queens and a queen size sleeper sofa. You checked into the exact room type that you booked.

"A Great Stay Despite COVID"

This is a very nice hotel in a quiet area right on Fort Myers Beach. My wife and I stayed here for nine nights and had a great time. We arrived right at check-in time and were helped by a friendly front desk person named Scott. Our room was already assigned and waiting for us. The whole check-in process was only a few minutes. We were assigned a room on the third floor. The room was very clean and nice. Each room features a kitchenette, a large bathroom and a private balcony facing the Gulf of Mexico. There was plenty of room for us to spread out. The hotel has breakfast service despite COVID. Instead of the usual buffet set-up, the staff will take your order and place it all on a plate for you. There were places to sit both inside the lobby and tables set up outside. The hotel is right on the beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas from a vendor that is there. The beach is large and there is plenty of room. There is also a nice pool area which was kept very clean by the staff. We were impressed with the COVID precautions in place and felt safe during out stay. The entire staff wore masks and guests are required to do so and observe social distancing. The housekeeping staff will not service your room unless requested. Requests for towels and toiletries were handled by the front desk with a smile and were left on our door handle each day. The hotel has a great location. It is a 10 minute or less walk from plenty of places to each and shop. The hotel is in a very quiet neighborhood. At night, we opened the door to the patio and slept listening to the waves on the beach. There was plenty of parking here and we never had a problem finding a spot, even late at night. The hotel is around a 30-minute drive from the airport depending on traffic. We encountered absolutely no issues during our stay. All the staff we encountered were friendly and professional. A great job by this hotel and we will see you again.

We have been coming here almost every year since 1994. It never disappoints. The staff are all great and love the view from our room. They have a very good breakfast. Although this year is a little different with Covid. They are making it all work

User 02/02/2021

On Feb 1 the cost per night was over $425. The cost the day before was $199. That is a fair price for the property and location. The beds were poor. My feet hung over the end of the bed and I am only 6'1." It all depends upon what value you place on being on the beach!

"Wonderful location with comfy rooms and friendly staff!"

Tribefanne, Brecksville, Ohio 02/02/2021

This property far exceeded our expectations! The location was wonderful---quiet side of the beach but absolutely close enough to Time's Square and all the excitement--all within walking distance. The room was super clean and was a great value---full sized fridge and freezer, a small stovetop (two electric burners), cabinets filled with everything you would need to cook a meal (pots, pans, full place settings, silverwear, cutting knife, cutting board, toaster, etc). There are also a few grills available for use (we did not use) but saw others using. I believe the grills were propane and the two I saw were also close to picnic tables on the beach, one was in a covered area on the beach with a large picnic table, so it would be great to grill our and have a meal outside. All the rooms overlook the beach/ocean and from what I could tell, all have amazing views---there's not an obstructed view on the property! The balcony was wonderful and large. The beach is literally steps away---the beach area was clean and well-maintainted with the ability to rent an umbrealla and chairs if desired (approx $30/day). Beach towels are provided although they were a bit small, but you can use as many as you need to make your towel space larger. The pool area was also a good size (pool goes from 3 feet-6 feet) and had lounge chairs all around it. The pool was heated and water temp was perfect! There was also a shuffleboard court on the property. Staff members were friendly and helpful---in particular Joy at the front desk went out of her way on several different occassions to assist us with requests we had. Breakfast is provided on site and was different each day--hot items such as eggs, omlettes, sausage, and waffles were available as well as bakery items, bagels, yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee, etc. If I had some recommendations it would be to have paper towels or napkins in the room (we never thought to include that with our grocery order) and would have been nice to have the tv's be smart tv's. There was a USB hookup in the back, but they did not recognize our devices. We definitely did not spend the day in the room, but it would have been nice to be able to watch Netflix or Prime on the evenings we didn't go out. We would absolutely return to this property! Location, staff, cleanliness, and comfort of rooms (beds were comfy, towels were SOFT, and bathroom was a good size). This property is PERFECT in every way!!! Say hello to Coco the bird! :)

Clean, friendly, and accommodating. This is a fantastic choice for Ft. Myers Beach. They had a safe reliable transportation service from the airport. Parking here was safe and easy.

mauisunset2000, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 23/12/2020

Our family of three stayed here the night before and two nights after our time share week. The first night we got upgraded and it was fabulous. The last two nights were full, so no upgrade. Still, gulf view, and a full fridge with sink and stove top. Which just makes staying a little more comfortable with being able to keep restaurant leftovers and water cold and being able to clean your reusable water bottles. So big plus for the mini kitchen. Even with limited breakfast, there was a good selection of items. The workers served you. We enjoyed sitting right outside to eat. Beds and pillows were comfy. Bath was a decent size. Good water pressure. Just steps to the sand! We walked for miles each day. Quiet motel, didn't hear much noise at all. We were on level 5. Ice machine was broke and wasn't fixed even after we left for the week and checked back in. Ice machine on ground floor worked. Times Square is walking minutes away, with restaurants and shopping. Our last day we checked out at 11 (no late check out right now) and staff didn't mind us hanging out at pool and listening to Coco talk until we had to leave for our flight. We are from locked down PA and we felt so free and relaxed here. We will definitely stay here again.

"Small rooms, quiet no-frills property"

Fzedlach, Colorado 13/12/2020

This place is not your traditional resort experience. The property is on an expansive beach, but the water didn't look at all desirable for swimming and was brown and cold. The property is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and a 7-11. I appreciated that the parking was free and plentiful. Check-in was fast and friendly, and all aspects of the property were explained. I was thanked for being an elite member, but was not offered any room upgrade whatsoever or anything special, which was disappointing. My room was dark and cramped on the ground floor. I appreciated to full-size refrigerator and kitchen though. The bathroom was similarly small and cramped. TV was on the small size. Air conditioning in the room appeared to have a tough time keeping up and I got hot throughout the night. The "heated" pool wasn't very heated. There are numerous chairs around the SMALL pool, but no other amenities. I appreciated the hot, complimentary breakfast in the morning from the friendly server and the express check-out option. Overall, I got what I paid for at this hotel, but it left a lot to be desired and I really have no desire to return.

Crew that were helping with serving breakfast extremely rude. When we pointed problem with amount of food being served we heard "shut up" from one of them. Unbelievable. It was our 4th stay on this hotel and probably the last one. Old mattresses made nights horrible experience. As a gold member didn't get even 15 minutes of late check out...blaming that on covid-19 but of course no problem if you want to pay $75 for it.

Tim Malbon, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are sorry to hear this and it should not have happened. Our breakfast attendants have been with us for many years. Our mattresses are only two years old and this is maybe the second complaint about them. The new normal is far from years past we just can not offer late checkouts with the amount of cleaning protocols that we have to do now to keep our staff and guests safe. Guests are more than welcome to use the facilities all day after check out and prior check in.

This BWP is never a disappointment with cleanliness, great supportive staff( kudos Joy, Rich & Scott!) & wonderful breakfast. My husband & I come from NH twice a year to extend our short summer. The beachfront room is fantastic & beach shore has available rental chairs/umbrella that make life easier... Just beautiful, quiet area to chill out & enjoy the warm Gulf waters & dolphins passing by!( Cannot wait to return come May 2021. Can you tell?) We always walk to Times Square with shopping areas & great places to eat: no car needed! Last but not least: their celebrity Amazon parrot, CoCo who charms all guests with his “ Hello” & other words! Too cute! A huge thank you for making every stay a memorable one; including the tropical storm Eta this year! ❣️

"Anniversary trip with a bit of noise"

pishihapoo, McLean, Virginia 23/10/2020

We had read posts around a month ago with TA reviewers posting about the “roof” work. Also saw the response from owner Tim apologizing and that the roof work should have been done by now. It is definitely not dine yet - from from it . There are only 5 floors - and when we checked in , we were told that because of our anniversary , we were given the highest floor (4th) - now i know why we didnt get the 5th- lol- Everyday you hear drilling and the worst part is that while you are laying in the beach , the wind blows the smell of Tar and Chemicals they are using on the roof toward you. not very relaxing - we had called in advance and spoke to the front desk (eric ) and he guaranteed the construction is over. I will update my review if the work stops or management explains a bit better ( it is tuesday Oct 13 and we are here till saturday- so we'll see if anything changes). TA wont let me post a video for some reason but you can send me a private message and I can send you a video with the sound of the noise . Only knocked off 1 star because the rest of the facility is great - breakfast is served behind a line - with employees giving you both coffee and the food items - you cannot touch anything yourself . A beautiful parrot (Coco) in the lobby - fun to interact with. Our room was on the 4th floor - corner king oceanfront - you could see views from different angles - highly recommend. The chairs and umbrellas are Not part of the hotel - there is a person outfront (Gary ) who will rent them to you for $30 /day ( no hourly option) . Hotel does provide towels for you to use at the pool and beach, however.

This was my third stay at this BW, but my first with my family in tow. We were able to book the cottage and it comfortably fit 6 of us. The only minor issue with the cottage is that the second bathroom has to be accessed via the garage, which means an outside trek down the steps whenever you need to use it. The views from the cottage are unbeatable! The staff at this hotel are always great and accommodating for whatever you need. The included breakfast is delicious and (pre-Covid) the coffee machine is so convenient. The area is very walkable and you can walk on the beach or the street to Times Square/shops/restaurants.

"Best Western Resort Plus"

IndyA174, Indianapolis, Indiana 10/10/2020

In a time when people are afraid to travel I thought it important to write this review. We are currently at the Best Western Resort Plus on Ft. Myers Beach. This place is spotless... rooms, lobby, pool, etc. In fact you can smell the cleaning supplies everywhere you go. Some things have changed due to Covid but they in no way are negative. The staff at the front desk has truly worked hard to attend to every guests needs. Every single time I come here they are friendly and accommodating. We stay here a lot. Some changes: 1.) Breakfast is no longer serve yourself. There is a lovely hostess that serves you what you want. All you have to do is tell her what you would like. I actually found this to be awesome and I hope it continues because it keeps people from touching, coughing, or breathing on food that others would like to enjoy. 2.) You now have to ask for towels, however, they will gladly provide you with what you need. 3.) They are working on the roof..that is true. However, it's not intrusive and let's be honest work has to be done to keep the place in tip top shape. 4.) If you are one of their Diamond Elite members they no longer offer the option of 2 snacks a day. Instead they offer you 500 points. Quite honestly, I had no idea snacks were offered all these times I stayed here so that is not a big deal to me. There are restaurants, a 711, shopping, etc., for anything you need. And it's all within walking distance. 5.) Masks... yes, they are dreaded but necessary and you need them. I actually got upset yesterday but not by BWR staff. The guy working the umbrella/chairs on the beach stand literally at 3 PM, at the 1st umbrella, put a large family right on top of us. He added 6 chairs and an extra umbrella, along with the people laying on towels l12 inches from our chairs. They were totally unconcerned about social distancing. I had to move our chairs. We were there all day and no way should that of occurred. Courtesy goes a long way. In my case I have a heart condition. I need people to follow the rules even if they don't like it. Lastly, my husband has a hard time getting away to travel. Yesterday we didn't get our usual room. I drove the staff crazy and once the people checked out of the room we like they moved us. I can't tell you how something so simple was important to us. Through my annoyance the staff, and Rich/the manager, remained friendly and patient. Housekeeping... we always tip because they work so hard. Don't forget them. Times are hard. Some went without checks for months during the shut down. And believe me I know 1st hand how very grateful they are. They are the sweetest.

We picked the BWP based on the positive reviews here. Early in the year we stayed at a BW in Utah that was a huge disappointment so were a little skeptical that this BW would live up to the great reviews. We are sooo glad we came! My husband has been a district manager for various hotels for more than thirty years and even he was impressed. FMB's Best Western is incredibly clean, practices COVID safety protocols, has a fantastic view and landscaping and the staff is committed to making sure every detail is attended to. All day long employees are wiping down chairs and tables, sweeping up sand, cleaning the pool and building areas such as vents and windows. Our room looked as tho' everything in it was new and modern with a touch of a beachy feel. The king bed was very comfortable and our only quibble is that we would have liked more than two pillows. The kitchen section had every appliance and cookware needed to make your own meals. The silverware and plates are all of good quality and all matched, something we rarely find at this price point. The attention to detail doesn't stop there...the bath had higher end towels and toiletries. The included full hot breakfast had great variety (just let the hostess know which items you want and she plates them for you) AND the selection changes every day. During our second day, the toilet wouldn't stop running and maintenance came up within minutes; on our last day the TV remote batteries died....again, staff had it fixed within minutes. All of this care combined with the beautiful, uncrowded beach and the shops and restaurants of Times Square just five minutes walk away made our quick mini vacay perfect in every way.

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

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.

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.

He greeted us for breakfast from his perch. Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway. :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

"Truly "THE BEST" Best Western"

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!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this BW resort. Wonderful beach front property! Lovely pool, great breakfast options, friendly staff! We had a king bed and the room also had a working kitchen area stocked with plates, pots etc. We highly recommend this property!

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.

I apologize that we were not able to get you in early, when running 100% we are at the mercy of when the guest before you checks out and how it was left.

Thank you, again, Best Western Plus Resort, for making our 6 wk vacation so great! We were warmly welcomed by the desk staff - also, personally experienced the care and concern management has for their guests. 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!!!

The hotel is one of the best on Fort Myers Beach. The staff and location for our stay was perfect. The breakfast area can get congested but the food variety was good and the ladies who looked after the area were very helpful. It was nice to walk out of the hotel straight on the beach each morning.

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!

"Perfect location for a more quieter visit"

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

640victorian, Estero, Florida 14/01/2020

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.

Celeste B, Pepperell 03/01/2020

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 came to spend the night and watch the fireworks on New Year's Eve. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the entire property. It is quite clear that staff is very focussed on this matter...this includes our room, the main lobby and the outside area in front. The parking lot even has an attendant to ensure only registered guests park on the property. All rooms have a balcony that faces the very wide beach. This is very much a family place and it does an excellent job of assisting its guests.

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.

Rooms are well constructed and super quiet. Hot breakfast items are delicious and replenished on a frequent basis. Nice pool area with shuffleboard and plenty of chairs in sun and shaded areas.

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. Overall it's a great hotel and nice staff

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.

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.

We were pleasantly surprised at the room as well as the overall resort. Staff very friendly and property very clean. Parrot in the lobby a neat addition, although it did startle my husband when it said hello in the morning when he went to get his coffee. 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.

I have been staying at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort in Fort Myers Beach for over ten years. I usually come with my husband for a weekend getaway, and sometimes friends join us. 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.

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.

The staffs (including the Parrot Coco) were pleasant and made our stay enjoyable. The hot breakfast was OK but not exceptional. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The floor was little bit slippery and the AC noisy, but beside that everything was fine. It's a great hotel with heated pool, playground area, and very nice beach. 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Nice hotel. Staff was wonderful. Breakfast was very good. Included hot items and varieties of coffee styles. Breakfast area was a bit cramped but we managed. All rooms are beachfront. Easy pool access as well as beach where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Would definitely consider going back.

The coffee maker in the lobby is the bomb, espressos, lattes and coffee 24hrs. its an easy vacation here park and walk to all the restaurants and shops. Enjoy our beach without the crowds. Thanks again for staying with us and writing a review

"Housekeping is not real good"

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.

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for your honesty and we apologize again. I don't know where the mix up was but everyone involved has been put on notice. I hope you can see by the last 1,000 + past reviews that this is not the norm for us. We thank you for staying with us and hope we get another chance to give you a 5 star vacation.

"Located right on the Beach"

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.

We checked in late and the lady that checked us in allowed us to use the pool and beach as long as we had our bracelets after we checked out.

"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.

I've stayed here in the past and as always I get great service, clean rooms, beautiful views, and a terrific complimentary breakfast. The hotel is located on the north side of the island, a short walk to time square. Whenever I visit Fort Myers Beach I always stay here.

Well thank you very much for being a repeat guest with us and for taking the time to compose a great review. We love our location, if anyone knows Ft.

We've stayed at other hotels on Ft. Myers Beach, but this Best Western Plus is the only place we will stay at now. 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!

What a positive experience visiting this location!! From the cleanliness of all the common areas and rooms, exquisite breakfast, impeccable bathrooms to the activities , this is the place to be if you are in the Fort Myers beach area. All rooms are oceanfront, check in was a breeze, Joy is an excellent team member as was very attentive to all questions and concerns not only by me but for all guest that she interacted with!!! The room I stayed in was equipped with a full kitchen, full size fridge, coffee maker and multiple toiletries. Multiple places to eat near by, Pier is a short walk away, location is perfect!!! All the employees I interacted with were very polite and friendly, even Coco the mascot in the lobby will say Hi every time...Full complimentary breakfast was abundant and with multiple choices. You won't be disappointed...

"Excellent Beachfront Stay"

User 12/05/2019

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!

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

Very well located and top notch facility. From the lobby and rooms to the staff. All are top notch.The pool was always clean and the beach was perfect, with umbrellas and chaises for rent. 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.

"Nice, but rooms small and dated"

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.

Stayed here during March 2019 spring break! Hotel staff controled disruptive teens respectfully to allow all guests to enjoy pool. Location was great! 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.

Fantastic Motel right on the beach. Wonderful staff. Rich at the front desk couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. A little pricy but way cheaper than taking a Carribean vacation at a beach resort. Leave your car in the parking lot and walk a short distance to the restaurants by the fishing peer. Great experience. We will be back again.

IrishCreamers, West Palm Beach, Florida 07/04/2019

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

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.

I may seek another place to stay next year.

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.

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.

This is a wonderful place. The Bermuda grass set the tone for a very comforting area. The breakfast bar was great as was everything from the pet parrot to the shuffle board courts by the beach. Rooms spacious and pleasant.

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.

Just a short walk down the beach to the really cool entertainment mecca on Ft Myers Beach. Beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico from every room!. Beautiful pool, and beach. And an outstandingly beautiful hotel, with a kind and caring staff. Delicious breakfasts to start your day, and then let the games begin! I've stayed there before, and will stay there again, and again. It is my home away from home! It just doesn't get any better than this!

We love this hotel and it is the only one we stay at when at Fort Myers Beach. The pool is great and you have a beautiful view of the ocean from the pool area. if you want to sit in the shade they have a great grassy area to hang out and enjoy the ocean view. 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.

Location is the best. Staff friendly, heated pool great. But being on the beach is the best. Cabana and chair rentals out front by Holiday Water Sports. Jet ski, paddle board, parasailing etc. Morning view of the Key West Express heading south with a killer Sunset looking out towards Sanibel Island.

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.

We come down with a group of 13 and all enjoy every year, will not look to stay anywhere else. 5 minute walk to pier and downtown FMB, great location away from the busyness at the pier! Would recommend to anyone! Might be expensive to some, but worth it!

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.

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

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. And we hope to see you again. Yes, the beds are either 2 doubles or 1 king in the standard rooms. We do have suites with kings and queens. Thank you for staying with us.

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. Hopefully the water improves, and it has, the water clarity is better, no smell, and no dead fish. We hope to see you again and thank you for staying with us.

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

"Smallest hotel room ever!"

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.

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

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. Our odd number rooms do have the air conditioner located at the bottom of the beds. We hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.

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.

LoriPulskamp1, Cincinnati, Ohio 11/07/2018

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

"Best Option on FMB for Travel w/ Pets"

carakait, Cape Coral, Florida 08/07/2018

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

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

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

"Beware Parking"

1
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.

User 28/06/2018

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

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.

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!!!

Thanks for staying with us and writing a review. We always try our best to make our guests experience at the property the best we can. We are happy that you get our resort vibe as we call it close enough but far away. Nice and relaxing at the property but a close walk to all the attractions. 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.

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

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.

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 !!

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.

Jennifer B, Bettendorf, Iowa 26/03/2018

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!

Our first time in Fort Myers and this hotel was perfect. Just my son and I and the room was small but clean, right on the beach with good sized patio. Sun set was right in front of us, nice private beach, all parasailing, dolphin tours, etc. accessible from the beach. Everything in town walkable in less than .25 mile. Will be back

If clean, quiet, very well kept and on the beach is what your looking for, this is the place. Service staff is top notch. Beach front restaurants are a quick 10 minute walk on the beach. We will definitely be back next year!!

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

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

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

Tim M, Owner at Best Western Plus Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you for the awesome review, we would be honored to be your Birthday tradition! We do our best to weed out the spring breakers, keeping our resort as the relaxing one. Thank you for staying, we hope to see you all again.

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

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

I am typically a Marriott loyalist, but the BW Plus is one of my favorite hotels. 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.

My husband and I went to Ft. Myers Beach for a long weekend. This hotel was the perfect location. We could walk everywhere! 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!!!

Location and beach view are excellent. High price per night without haiving beach chairs/ umbrellas included in price. Breakfast was more then expected. Rooms are nice but only double size beds. Had issue with air conditioning but didn't report till checkout. Microwave/ fridge in rooms are excellent.

frequenttraveleurope, Orange County 02/02/2018

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!

When we vacation we love to get away from friends & locals where it's quiet & comfortable. Best Western Beach Resort is the place to do it! Read the trip advisor comments-enough said!The amenities are the best, but it's the owners, staff/employees that make this place what it is.Owners, Tim & Jeff, on location,visible and available.Behind the desk-Joy,Scott,Rich,Millie & Steph cheerfully accommodate your every need. 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.

A great location with a relaxing, beautiful beach & view! Our first family vacation with all our sons as adults so we were looking for something relaxing, yet fun for adult "kids" (ages 18, 22, & 24). The location exceeded our expectations as it was quite, yet a close walk to beach restaurants & night life. It was a great beach vacation!

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
