Great Stay

5 out of 5
by
Posted Feb 15, 2017
Pros: Close to the beach, clean, comfortable and reasonable price.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Beautiful beaches, safe and great location.
We stayed 2 nights post cruise and would love to go back for perhaps a week. The beach is about a 1/4 mile away and very easy access. The rooms were very clean (as we had 2) comfortable and with a European feel. The breakfast was very very good, with Wolfgang Puck coffee in the rooms what more could you want? Waffles, eggs, warm meats, fresh strawberries, pineapples etc. The young girl at reception (Trainee) was lovely, helpful and tenacious. The breakfast area lady too was marvelous.

The hotel was an older hotel. It was clean and room was nice; however, our biggest complaint was no room service available and the restaurant was very overpriced

Stayed for 1 night before leaving on a cruise. It was nice for a night, but we found the bathroom to be dirty (hair in the bath tub and on the floor). Nice breakfast in the morning.

Pros: The price was very fair for the location and amenities.
Location: Location was close to the beautiful beach. Lots of restaurants and bars near by.
Rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and beds were very comfortable. The hotel even had a cute bar and offered hot food to order. Pool was very clean and several great outdoor sitting areas where you could have a cocktail or just chat in the warm Florida evenings.

Little Disappointing from Previous Stay.

3 out of 5
by from Canadian
Posted Dec 1, 2016
Pros: This hotel is in a nice location, close to beach, shops and restaurants.
Cons: Improve the advertisement of the rooms so consumers are more clear on what "category" they are purchasing ahead of time.
This was our second stay at the Best Western Oceanside Plus. My biggest disappointment was the check in at the front desk. During out previous stay (2 years ago) we had a nice Terrace Balcony Room. We had booked a block of runs with 4 other couples. This year I was told I had to pay extra if I wanted the Terrace Rooms. I think the advertising needs to be clearer. Also, the front desk staff could have been more friendly and oriented towards better customer service.

We hope you will come back and see us again soon. Sincerely, Trevienne Barrett (Ms.T) Front Office Manager BEST WESTERN Plus Oceanside Inn
