Great business hotel with a unique setting on ocean. The rooms are large with a view, the wine selection is limited, particularly at the premium end, but service is great. Wifi quality is excellent. The outside bar is a gem!

Excellent views, cold beers, good finger foods, friendly bar and waitstaff. Will most definitely return! Aidan is a great bartender, and very friendly. Go for the crispy chicken avocado wrap... have ordered it twice and still could go back for third.

Best western is a great place. Despite a few hiccups and failure for the cleaners to replace soap and a few items like towel and bath robe, the experience was great. The Gym guy was very professional, he made me feel confident to try physical exercise after years of dormancy. After the first day i kept looking forward to gym...

I loved the place and will definitely visit soon again. I loved the ocean view though it would be much better if you had a beach around the around the shores of the ocean. All in all I don't regret saying there
