Ble module for beacon scanning

Hello guys I have selected HM10 ble module for scanning ble beacons. Based on my brief research, I found it to be most suitable among others. However, I would like to know the scanning range of this module. The datasheet says it has 100m range open space, but I read some comments on different forums and people are complaining that they get only few meters 10 or 15m. So I would like to know if this is suitable for my application. I want to scan beacons and the higher the range the better. I donot want connection, instead just scanning.
I appreciate your suggestions in this regard.
