      Location was nice

      Hotel was in the process of renovation ... may be better when finished. Linens and curtains in the rooms need to be pressed. Smelled like smoke in our first room. The heated pool was not heated. Elevator was dirty with broken tiles on the floor. Poor service

    • Older travelers

      Good location

      Had to request a different room - smokers had obviously used to room prior to us. Front desk clerk stated they have had problems with that room! Then why give it to us? 2Nd room was fine.

    • Family with children

      The view was nice.

      We were never left enough towels. The pool was suppose to be heated, but was not. Majorly dissapointed!

      Location with nice waterfront views, Beautiful park next to the property. Helpful staff with questions, quiet rooms, clean, great value

      A lot of construction, Ice machines did not work, no shampoo in the room (a lot of lotion, though)

      The water view from our window.

      First, I was surprised after having booked a Best Western, to find the hotel had changed hands. Then, it was a very tired hotel ... many things were "out of order." Front desk was talking on the cell phone when we arrived and she apologized to whomever she was speaking that she had to go and would call back as soon as she was finished. I felt compelled to strip the bed to inspect for bed bugs (didn't find any), nonetheless, never unpacked the suit cases as a precaution. Really needs an infusion of cash and TLC QUICK!

      Location on waterfront and being close to city sites was excellent.

      Seemed to me that hotel could use some maintanence to make sure everthing is in great shape. One example is that shower water was not at all warm the couple days we stayed.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Good location, it had a good restaurant which makes it a very convienient stay, laundry room, however they need better upkeep on the washers

      Comfortable beds and pillows

      Waterfront hotel preparing for a rennovation. Friendly staff. Fire alarm sounded at 2:00 AM and again at 8:00 AM, both false alarms. Staff was conderned and uncertain with procedure for fire emergency. Local fire department responded quickly.

      Management needs to prepare a procedure for fire emergency and train employees.

      The hotel is in need of remodeling. The continental breakfast was rather meager, with very little space allocated for seating. The first clerk questioned said "We don't have shower caps ." The next day a new clerk simply reached under the front counter and retrieved one. We could hear normal conversations from the next door room. They need two things: 1. A sign on the front of the building with their name, 2. A change on their advertising indicating a new owner.

    • Family with children

      It's view although my room had a city view not water view.

      The place smells since the second you hit the hallways. The room smells musty and moldy and old. The bed was so old it sunk in in the middle. The tv was an antique and there were 7 channels ALL cloudy picture....

    • Older travelers

      1. The location was perfect for what we needed. 2. There was a park boardering the waterfront which had excellent walking paths.

      1. On our arrival I explained to the desk person that my wife was not feeling well and if possible can she put us on the quiet side of the hotel. This young blonde headed clerk tersely responded that all the rooms are quiet. Consequently, she gave us a room facing the busy parking lot right next to the restaurant/steakhouse and my wife was awakened a few times during the night. Obviously, not a great way to treat a new customer. Luckily we were only there for one night. Hopefully the new owners will hire more accommodating/experienced workers. 2. Hotel needs some major refurbishing.

    • Family with children

      This hotel needs to be fixed in so many ways. Worn out everything. Air conditioner not working right. Bedding smelled. Flea bites!

      I have been staying at the Best Western Punta Gorda waterfront for the past eight monthes for vacation. The staff is wonderful. The view is spectacular and Benidittos next door has great food and a wonderful view. Punta Gorda is a charming town. The Best Western Punta Gorda Waterfront Hotel and Suites is a wondeful place to vacation.

    • Group of friends

      My room was not wheelchair accessable. All of the handicapped parking was filled up by the resturant.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Great location, ocean view, close to restaurants and walkways, handy local main roads, etc. Punta Gorda has a neat small town feel.

      Could be a beautiful place to spend a night or two with a lot of tender loving care and updates. We will definitely check it out in the future.
