    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Our room had live cockroaches in it. We left early after the hotel management did nothing to correct this issue. My daughter slept soundly as I looked over to see roaches crawling on her bed over her while she slept! The staircase we used to get to and from our room was filled with uncleaned vomit for hours. Even after I said something to the desk, it remained. Dirty water ran from our bathroom pipes.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    We really enjoyed our stay at Best Western on the Beach. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and well kept. The staff was consistently wiping down, and cleaning per state guidelines due to Covid. They have an on site breakfast spot called the Pancake House. It was delicious!! The staff there was also super nice, and practiced social distancing. It was a little pricey compared to the Waffle House a block up, but if you want to pay the extra for convenience I recommend it. The outdoor pool was nice although I did not see it being cleaned during our stay. I also never saw the patio furniture being cleaned or wiped down between guest. It was spread out to encourage distancing, but it wasn’t cleaned from one person to the next.
