"I have to bringing my daughter there for 16 years she and I had a very first experience. Bias racist"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
When we first arrived there we have reservations for a Friday night and a Saturday night. A little bit cold the third party made a mistake and gave us Thursday night and then Saturday night. Which made no sense and was an easy fix however. But said very rudely oh well your reservations was for Thursday not today I didn't understand so I said what do you mean and he said your third party would be for Thursday not Friday there's nothing to do we just lost that money. I was shocked I said sir you're here for a weekend because I am going to have and I wish and I wanted to stay with my daughter before I go in. How would I book a room on Thursday she got on Friday and check back in leave my money by the third party which is secure mistake that could have easily been fixed. When I asked to speak to the manager assistant manager that is which I was directed to fix the problem the assistant manager came staff that was near her toward me. I became very frustrated to begin to cry and wonder why can't do just move the money that I had paid. For Friday night off of Thursday night so I can have a weekend staff is so rude and became so disrespectful almost is the live with me cuz that was that their mistake. Then I asked to speak to the manager which they completely denied almost there and that the problem was solved I began to cry even more at frustration now feeling really bad that I've wasted money on something that I've been doing for years and now this one day changed everything out of a 16 years I have been coming to Best Western. This particular one I have been standing every year 16 years old since the hotel changed over it is not the same I will not recommend anybody stay here because of the services that you will receive. There's no more complimentary breakfast even though you're paying almost 300. It's only orange juice they don't tell you the hotel has changed management. The only thing you can do is just to get out and wait till the night there is over. Although the manager stepped up and leave us a beach front Ocean view room I think she saw the mistake that happened and she fixed it. I do appreciate her because she took the time out however he did not handle the situation right in the beginning when we spoke with her but in some way she end up fixing her part. But never will I stay here again anybody in their right mind who used to stay here and to look at the coast and reviews before they take a chance the rooms are not clean anymore like they used to be the hotels now I would give this a one star. Look out for rude management thank you have to take it and you really don't.

"Excellent Wheelchair Accessible Hotel."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
As you can see by the title, my review comes from a different perspective. I am in a wheelchair which is an issue in staying in hotels. While I found the room to be a bit dated, the wheelchair accessibility is the best I have found at a hotel. The size of the bathroom along with the roll in shower made it easy to maneuver but was also comfortable for the rest of my family. The amenities are all accessible including door openers, wheelchair ramps and all pool areas. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to assist with any need. While there were some Covid 19 restrictions, they did not interfere with our trip. Overall we enjoyed our time here.
