Owner Response
Spencer P, Front Desk Supervisor at Best Western Plus Island Palms Hotel & Marina, responded to this review
Dear Vicki, Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I'm glad you enjoyed the marina views from your room and a quiet and comfortable first three days at the hotel. I am so sorry this was not the case for your last two nights due to the noise from the room above you. I know this must have been difficult and frustrating and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. I also am sorry that the A/C unit in your room had some issues and I want you to know our maintenance team has addressed these. It's so great to know you loved walking along the marina, relaxing at the fireplace at our pool, and enjoying a clean room. I wish your entire experience had been this pleasant, and I'm confident that if you visit us again we can provide you with an outstanding experience in every way. Thank you again for staying with us and providing your valued feedback. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for a true five-star experience in the future. Sincerely, Spencer Priest Front Desk Supervisor (619) 222-0561
