Verified Reviews of Best Western Fort Myers Waterfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Absolutely amazing view. Hotel is Old and lacks maintenance."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The view was amazing. The hotel however is in need of renovation and general maintenance. The price is way too high for a run down property like this one. Don't mind paying a higher price, but this hotel is over priced for what you get. When I pay that much, I expect a nice property.
