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

As I went to leave I realized I didn't get a receipt under my door. Since it had turned out to be kind of a low end place I decided to pop by the front desk and double check why to avoid any kind of surprise. They informed me that I had to come by the front desk and settle... More

Arrived late after a long flight. Opened the door to our room only to find that it was already occupied...with cockroaches! Not only was the room dirty and dingy, it reeked of cigarette smoke. Needless to say, we hightailed it out of there and let the cockroaches have the room.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Room was clean and bed was somewhat comfortable. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. I'm always leary of staying at places with outside doors, but we felt safe here. We used Hotels.com to save a few dollars for the night's stay.

Best Western Mid Town Sarasota is in a great safe location 1/2 way between the two bridges to different barrier islands. It's 1 hr from the Tampa International Airport. We stayed in room 212 on the second floor which was very quiet, came with a refrig and microwave, and the beds were very comfortable. There is a Winn Dixie directly... More

My husband and I decided that we needed to "get away from it all" and chose Siesta key as our visit. It reserved 48 in advance and requested early check in. Even we arrived on March 27 at 9 a.m., Sunny had a room with a view of the pool for us! Great service, GREAT location, GREAT hotel! BEST decision... More

Traveled down from 4 days at a resort in St Petersburg, just wanted someplace clean/comfortable near Seista Key, Bredenton to see a spring training game and Long Boat Key to experience upscale dining and shopping. Wow! EVERYTHING was within a 15-20 minute drive. Could not have been at a better location! A very nice Best Western. The room overlooked the... More

Visited Sarasota in mid Feb, 2015. This is an older property, that needs updating badly. While clean, it is not worth the upcharge we paid for one night. We chose it by its convenient location, but there are many better choices I believe. The included breakfast was also OK, but nothing special. Front desk folks were nice and helpful when... More
