My wife and I took a quick trip to Bradenton, Florida to visit family and found this property via Hot Wire. I don't usually stay in Best Western Hotels (preferring Hilton or SPG), but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this property. It is newly remodeled, and our room was wonderful. A very clean, modern bathroom and comfortable king bed. The room was a nice size and in our case, overlooked another property in the back of the hotel. Room had a flat screen television with cable. They had a complementary breakfast each morning that was comparable to what a Hampton Inn offers, minus the waffle maker. Food was good, hot, and plentiful. There was a great coffee machine that made hot chocolate and many varieties of coffee (espresso, vanilla, etc.). Lobby also had a computer that allowed us to print our boarding passes.
There was a very nice pool area and bar that we did not use, but looked like it would be fun for a longer stay in nicer weather! Staff was also very pleasant and helpful. Only down side for us, was it's distance from Tampa airport (where we came in), and the Bradenton/Sarasota area where our family was located, but the price more than made up for the slightly longer drives. Our particular room was located next to where the ice machine was, and one morning at 4am someone got ice (really!!)....but if we stay again we will simply not locate there....would given the opportunity we would certainly stay again and would easily recommend it! less
