Verified Reviews of Best Western on the Beach

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Basic. Staff was overbearing and not helpful."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Great location only. Housekeeping didn't understand English didn't understand need more towels at a beach hotel. Front desk lady very rude and talked down to high paying customers for a two star place.

"Works in a Emergency."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This property was not what expected. It's very creepy! The bathroom door was locked upon our arrival. Management came to wrestle with it. Turns out it was just stuck and needed to be “football tackled.” Also the bathroom was dated and smelled of urine. I travel with my own cleaning supplies so that helped! But if you can, find something else!

"It wasn't like any other Best Western that I stayed."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
They said my breakfast had to be included when I checked in, I thought it was included anyway, then I had to pay an extra 75 dollars for a beach view, the room was expensive enough, I thought all that was included in the price, so I was very dissatisfied.
