Florida, New Smyrna Beach: Best Western Hotel & Suites

Florida, New Smyrna Beach: Best Western Hotel & Suites

First impression: clean! The beach-front Best Western New Smyrna Beach Hotel & Suites, according to Shirley, is 30 years old. Amazing. It is spotlessly clean and maintained so well it looks like a new facility. Our top floor king room was a single room but has suite amenities: a full size fridge, microwave, utensils, plates, bowls, glasses, cups, and sink with dish washing supplies.

Floridays Resort: Orlando, Florida
comparison with Saratoga Springs Resort: Disney World

Our visit was in early February 2014 with the intent of finding a resort near Disney World but off WDW property—seeking one that provides an equal or superior experience as compared to staying on site but at significantly lower cost while still being convenient to the theme parks. Is it possible?
