Owner Response
Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear LiviaDrusilla11, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. I’m pleased to hear that you and had such positive encounters with our remarkable staff and that you were able to take advantage of our incredible beachside location. I am concerned to learn that you feel our rooms are outdated. We recently completed the renovation of all of our guest rooms, including the replacement of everything from carpet and furniture to paint, linens and the bathrooms. Although you didn't enjoy our breakfast, the continental buffet that includes freshly baked pastries, fresh fruit, pancake machine, a rotating variety of hot items and other goodies, it is one of our most positively mentioned services. I apologize that your stay with us did not exceed your expectations but I am grateful for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our hotel to reach our goal of being the best. I hope that you consider offering us another opportunity to better serve you in the future.

Great staff!
