Recent guest reviews

Room was very nice and staff was courteous. Nice hotel, but a bit over priced.

Clean affordable nice staff good breakfast close to beach would stay again

very clean @ good food. great staff !!! easy to find..

Great experience! The hotel clean, lot to choose from breakfast station!

The room was as advertised although the AC was not working upon entry. The person at the desk was quick to come look at it. They fixed the issue but were acting as if removing the entire face of the AC unit to expose the insides to flip a switch was normal. Otherwise the room was what I needed it for and I'd stay again.

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.

Lock broken on door. Small pool. You can hear every door close and people walk up and down the hall. Overall it was average . I would stay again if I had to.

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.

Very clean, frendly staff, comfortable rooms, flat screen tv, has wi-fi internet, clean swimming pool, and easy check-in and check-out.

enjoyed the day fishing at Anna Maria Island then back to hotel for a hot shower and dinner at Bonefish grill.We had a great nights sleep and breakfast in lobby then back on the road .Would stay again if in area.

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.

Nice hotel. Easy to get to, close to restaurants & shopping areas. Price was great. Room was clean, staff friendly. Continental breakfast was pretty good, great blueberry pancakes!

The staff was helpful. The room was clean but had a musty odor. Found a few bugs in the closet.Did not enjoy the same menu on the breakfast every morning.Probably will not stay there again.

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.

Overall experience is good. Was a little worried when we walked in the room - the bed in our room was on the wall adjacent to the elevator - didn't even notice, it was not a problem. Would have liked clear directions on what the AC should have been set on - would've made 2nd night nicer. Breakfast is cleared right at 9am - don't be late!

Visited family and everything was quite satisfactory as have been our previous trips to visit.

This hotel was clean and well located. Nice amenities for the price level of this hotel. There were a couple of issues that I had to get fixed, refrigerator and remote to the TV, but they were addressed quickly and saw no further issues. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Hotel is relatively new, staff was very friendly & helpful. The continental breakfast each morning was huge - a great way to start any day - and there was plenty of everything. A little more attention could be paid to cleaning the room. The desk chair was uncomfortable & may have been broken. It was otherwise comfortable & near everywhere we needed to be. Would definately stay at this hotel again.

I visit Bradenton every year around same time of year. I have a time share on the beach, but always go early and stay after. This year tried the new Best Western Hotel. It was great and plan to use it each year I'm in town.
