A very reasonably-priced room for a super location in this high-priced town. But the cleanliness was not impressive...since smoking isn't allowed inside rooms, there are cigarette butts all along sidewalks and in parking lots. Ugh. Maintenance work of some kind, with hammering and pounding, went on while we TRIED to relax by the pool...it was late morning hours when one... More

This is a good value for Sarasota. The pool is beautiful and the perfect temperature. The breakfast is typical for Best Western and not that enjoyable. The location is good and the staff was caring. We had air conditioner problems, but not bad enough to report. The Wifi worked great.

The first time we stayed at this hotel everything was adequate, if unimpressive. The room was basically clean, although the air conditioning did cause some mild allergies and the bathroom smelled of mildew. The wi-fi had a strong signal and never went out. The breakfast was adequate and attendants pleasant. The front desk staff was very friendly every time we... More

Let me start with some positive notes. The pool looked clean and inviting. The breakfast was good and the attendant was friendly. The location was convenient to the locations I needed. I didn't see any bugs in the room. Besides these items, I was slightly disappointed with the hotel overall. The outside of this establishment looks shabby, not inviting. It... More

I think that a title sums it all up. Real Estate law # 1 is "Location, Location, Location..." and this hotel got it - in the midst of it all - just minutes to Siesta and Lido beaches, downtown Marina and restaurants/shopping... The hotel itself may not be a very "fancy-shmancy" but for a price-conscious traveler presents a great value,... More

This is an older hotel that is really trying to upgrade. The room was decorated well. The amenities were all up to date. They need to pay a little more attention to the tub and shower area. All mold and mildew should really be removed from the tiles. The lobby was tiny, but pretty. The goodie bag of cookies and... More

Very Friendly Front Desk Staff. Shanny very helpful when you need to call Uber or a taxi. Short ride to Siesta Key Nightlife and beaches. Good breakfast complete with biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, banannas, etc to get your tummy full in the morning. Juice, coffee bar, etc. Also recommend CBS Outfitters for boat rental, update fishing license, purchasing castnet, etc.

Our stay at Midtown Best Western was enjoyable. The property reminded me of "Old Florida". Our room had all amenities needed. The property (probably because it is older) is extremely well built. Our room was very quiet and we could not hear the guests outside or in adjoining rooms. The breakfast was good and the "breakfast lady" clearly took pride... More
