Stopped by chance here on our way further south. Could have spent our entire vacation here. Fantastic atmosphere, grounds, facilities and small bar that oozed with fun. So nice to see how respected the dog guests were treated by the staff too. The facilities and grounds were as beautiful as places we stayed in Hawaii. Referred several people to this...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 March 2017

When I first encountered this hidden jewel from another era of those fabled Florida hotels last year, when the first railroad spurs brought the country's wealthiest families to those winter sands of the Breakers of Palm Beach, the Biltmore of Coral Gables, or the Pink Ladies of St. Petersburg, there was at the end of its own grand circle stage...

Wow, you write so well---you should have been a novelist. I really enjoyed reading how you described our beautiful hotel property. In the next couple of months, we will start more renovations. We just put new carpet in all of the rooms. Next, we will change the lighting outside along with changing our bedding inside of the rooms. We are...

The hotel is very nice! It is fairly new. Rooms are nicely equipped. Stayed in a room with two beds. The air conditioning unit worked well as compared to other hotels I have stayed in recently. The hotel is impressive. Staff were friendly and mostly helpful. My room did have some cleanliness issues. First morning, there were many long black...

A nice, clean, recently built facility that is very near I-75. Despite the building being close to I-75 no road noise was heard inside our room. The free breakfast offered the usual hot and cold items in addition to hot oatmeal and flavored creamers for coffee.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, some of the best I've seen. I thought Best Western had gone to the economy class of hotels. But this one is at the upper end of the middle class hotels. Although it appears to be an older property, it is well maintained. Again, one of the best I've seen. I didn't have...

I have to say I experienced no issues during my stay at this Best Western. The staff was extremely attentive and check in and out were efficient. Breakfast was excellent as well with fruit and even an omelet station. I will stay here again!
