The staff at Best Western Siesta Key make all the difference! Excellent from arrival to departure they made the stay a pleasurable one. Rooms were large and more than adequate if unspectacular. The free wifi was excellent even round the pool. Parking convenient and free. Harry's Sports Bar next door is pretty good. A few things set this hotel apart.... More

Very clean even though there pool was going through renovation, they did a great job of keeping the place looking nice and in great order, actually had to walk around to even know they were working. Highly recommend this place, close to the beach and very affordable rates, unlike places on the beach. You can walk to the beach, it... More

this is the hotel for you! Note that this review is date specific, and you may not experience this. During our stay, they were doing construction on the pool. Very loud, very early in the morning on a Saturday. And if you check in late, you are not likely to get your room serviced.

Hair on the bed and bathroom. Hard pillows, thin walls, and next to ice machine and elevator. Breakfast had no meat. Coffee was terrible, so was the French Vanilla capaccino. I heard entire conversations in the hallway at 3;45am. Girls filling ice machine buckets at 1:30.

This Best Western had very friendly staff and clean, updated rooms. We chose a room with a King bed & a pull out sofa (double) for 2 adults, and 2 kids ages 9 & 7. As we were on our way to Disney & had a lot of luggage, this was room was VERY tight, and the bathroom was similarly... More

This place met my expectations for a Best Western. Place is more of a motel, but good front desk and breakfast area. The pool was closed when we were there but it looked fine. The hotel is convenient to a Publix and a few restaurants and bars (walking distance) as well as a short drive to the beach. Heating was... More

The staff was very helpful and accommodating. When I wasn't happy with my room, they gave me another one without question. Loved the breakfast room and the popcorn! The pool as nice, although they were undergoing renovations and there were landscapers everywhere.

Despite the close proximity to the Tamiami Trail the hotel was relatively quiet and very convenient for the local places of interest. The room was clean and comfortable although not particularly spacious. The TV and Wi-Fi were good and the pool and pool bar were very pleasant. The complimentary breakfast buffet was perfectly adequate but did not offer a large... More

We came to town for a family funeral so our spirits were a little down upon our arrival. However, the staff, popcorn machine in the lobby, excellent accommodations, and outstanding breakfast buffet all served to lighten our burden and lift our spirits. I would highly recommend choosing this hotel if you're even in Sarasota.
