good location - pet friendly

the hotel location is great. Beaches are 8 or 9 miles away. Many restaurants and grocery shops nearby. The manager seemed very pet friendly (we had no pet though). Also there is not much noise from the outside as the hotel is not directly adjacent to the main road. The room was clean and refreshed every day. On the less good side the pool is quite small as is the breakfast area. The item selection not great and the staff not really friendly (though not unfriendly). The beds in our room (210) had probably seen better days. So did the air conditioning system obviously. Loud. There was a light smell in the room. We definitely had a much better experience at the Best Western Bradenton Hotel & Suites. Good breakfast items selection. Larger swimming pool nicely located in the back of the hotel (lots of green, trees, birds, etc.. ;-). Cleaner and friendlier staff. Beds were also very comfortable. Certainly not as close from the beaches (ca 15 miles) but very close to the I-75. Should we go back to Bradenton we would definitely consider the Best Western Plus hotel & suites.

The hotel was clean, the staff was accommodating and friendly, the breakfast was more than adequate (other than the "scrambled egg" discs!) Would stay there again if needed.

Good overnight stay

Very good beds; very clean. Friendly reception personel.Refrigerator, micro-wave, coffee maker and hair blower in good working condition. Love the additional shelves in bathroom which left us with uncluttered vanity.Overall, very good experience.

First Class

There were absolutely no issues with my stay. The staff is very friendly and the manager, Mr Sears, "bent over backward" to accomodate in any way possible. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in the Bradenton, Fl area.

Good for overnight on way to resorts

Room was more than adequate. The airconditioning was difficult to regulate. Fan in the bathroom did not work, staff brought a portable fan that was sufficient to take care of condensation, etc. Staff was polite, breakfast good. Location ideal for restaurants and shopping but hotel is difficult find the way it's tucked in behind the Cracker Barrel. Would stay there again.
