The hotel was a smoke-free facility and maintained in superior condition.
Room accomodations were clean and provided with sufficient linens, daily.
Each staff member maintained courteous and professional service through out my interaction with them.
The meals were truly superior to any other hotel in the area, and I had an opportunity to try two other facilities.
We stayed in the Woods Rogers room, facing the harbor. Lovely, old school, spacious room. Modern bathroom. We opened the windows and had a lovely breeze. The pools and gardens are relaxing and very pleasant. This is the first time we stayed there, although I've purchased cigars (and now chocolate) for many years. Sitting by either pool is wonderful.
We chose this hotel based on location, cost. We will be returning because of the amazing ladies at the front desk. The room was dated as other reviewers have mentioned. However, it was cleaned everyday and we found the bedding and linens to be in good condition and tear/stain free. The room was huge. A sitting area had 2 chairs and a table, with plenty of room for luggage. The TV was a nice flat screen with lots of channels and WiFi box was in the room. The signal was excellent. We also had a phone. We opted not to ask for a fridge, but ice was available when needed.There was no safe, we felt comfortable not having one. Based on the room description, we thought we had a balcony. We did not, but it wasn't an issue as the room walked right down to the pool. The pool was a decent size, with lots of seating. Diane at the front desk booked a scuba trip for us. It was amazing. One phone call, and it was done. They showed up on time and we paid at the dive centre. No question or request was too much trouble and whoever was working stopped everything to help us. The hotel was nice and quiet, except for a few hours at night. We heard club music pretty loud, but it only lasted a few hours at most. Didn't ruin our sleep, and had nothing to do with the hotel. The air conditioning was great! We had to turn it off a few times, it was too cold. It did keep the music noise out though. Beach was right across street. 5mins walk to downtown. We will be back!
"Recent Stay at Best Western Plus Bay View Suites"
My husband and I recently stayed at Best Western Plus Bay View Suites this August. Our stay was amazing, all the staff at the hotel were pleasant and very helpful. We had a mixup with our booking and the manager dealt with it in a very professional and amicable manner. The security guards went out of their way to answer our questions regarding directions. Cabbage Beach which is about 15 mins. away from the hotel is amazing. However, we will like to advise future travelers of the closest walking route to this beach from the hotel. When you come out of the hotel turn left and walk towards Paradise Drive. This route is the shortest, and most scenic. It is also the better route when going to get the water taxi.
My wife and I stayed here for four nights in July 2009. It was really nice, standard little hotel which was great for our limited budget. The place is really quite, (we didn't see anyone else there even though they had about 15 other guests). We had the pool to ourselves every night.
