Verified Reviews of Best Western Inn on the Bay

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Be Certain Your Booking is with Best Western."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Imagine our shock and surprise when told upon registering that our reservation had not been made with Best Western directly but with some other business which charged an enormous service fee. Best Western web site advertised $170.00 per night. We were forced to pay almost $270.00 in advance.
