    Try somewhere else

    Overnight getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Stayed on 3rd floor. Balcony is nice, but palm tree obstructs view to ocean (still nice to listen though). King size room on small side but adequate. Comfy bed, only 2 pillows. Woke early to watch sunrise and came back to the stair entrance being blocked off due to construction (we had to walk through hotel with no mask or shoes). Forget about going back to bed because by 8am backup alarms from equipment and noise from whatever is being done to the hotel prevented any sleeping. It would have been nice if construction was disclosed on their website. Breakfast was standard fair that is now served to you. Morning hostess had no greeting, just pointed at a sign that listed the foods. While waiting in line I helped myself to a prepackaged cinnamon roll. Evidently post-covid this was not allowed because when she saw I had one on my table, she yelled past guests in line and rudely said not to do that again. Not only did she embarrass me but the other guests as well. Absolutely my mistake for helping myself but handled totally inappropriate. We will try a different establishment when returning to fort myers.

    Annual Anniversary stay on FMB

    Love the Best Western Plus Beach Resort. We have been regular guest pretty much every year since 1985. The cleanest BW we have ever stayed at anywhere. The whole staff are great. We know most by first name, a good thing since we have to wear face coverings! Our view from the top floor.

    Weekend getaway

    From the moment of check-in, it was a wonderful weekend away!!! Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful!! Room was spotless and smelled like lemons. :) The best part was the laundry and the trash chutes!!! Of course, access to the pool & beach was amazing too!!! Can't forget about Coco!!! He greeted us for breakfast from his perch. Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway. :)

    Great Hotel!

    Fantastic hotel! The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. We had a kitchenette that comes with plates and utensils. It had a full size refrigerator that was really convenient. Our room was on the 2nd floor over the pool and we had a fantastic view of the ocean which was steps away. The grounds are clean and beautiful and the hotel is within walking distance to Times Square. We really enjoyed our stay will stay at this hotel again when we come back.

    Clean and neat

    We had previously stayed at this property a few years ago and was not disappointed this past weekend! We purposely chose this location based on past experience and wanting to reduce our travel risks. Pros: 1. Very clean! I took disinfecting wipes and wiped down all the touch points, and counters and the wipes were still clean when I was done. 2. Outside access to rooms meant not having to take the elevator except to move luggage back and forth. 3. Balcony overlooking the beach -great views. 4. A hot breakfast is still served, but the kind attendant, Rosie, fixed our plates each morning. 5. Every time I saw team members they were hard at work either cleaning (including the outside chairs and loungers) or doing preventative maintenance. 6. Pool closes each evening so no worries about raucous parties late into the night. 7. Jordon at the front desk was warm and friendly! 8. A kitchenette with full size refrigerator (also had plates, utensils, coffee maker and toaster) allowed us to prepare simple meals. A broom and dust pan are also in the room - great for sweeping up all the sand tracked in from beach walks. 9. A few minutes walk to pier, convenience store, and two ice cream shops! 10. Masks to be worn in all common indoor spaces such as breakfast area (tables are set up outside - who doesn't love eating breakfast and watching the waves?) Cons: This is a personal preference, the AC unit was a little too loud for me. My husband slept just fine, but I woke up several times a night when it cycled on. I would definitely recommend this location for anyone wanting to get away but do so while mitigating risks associated with the pandemic.
