This is my fourth time at this Best Western. The front desk was extremely accommodating considering I had booked a king bed room but needed two doubles.even though it is high season and they were full they changed our room at no additional charge. The free breakfast buffet is great with hot food that is delicious. Every time I stay... More

We spent two nights here on the way back from the Keys. We were happy with all aspects, and little touches are evident. A good choice for breakfast, coffee available 24 hours along with hot chocolate. The pool and garden area well kept. There is transport to the beach if needed. The place is well managed and it shows. Thank... More

Hotel was in a good location to get to various beaches. Free breakfast was a perk. Great pool. Close to restaurants and shopping. 24 hour hot beverages, warm afternoon cookies, and popcorn was an additional plus.

This motel was a wonderful experience for our visit to Siesta Key, Sarasota. It was very clean, comfortable, and made our trip successful. Easy access to the beach and free transportation. Our room was very comfortable and bright and just made my wife and I very happy.

Great hotel at a reasonable price. Walking distance to the Gulf and also several restuarants. You can avoid the beach traffic and finding a place to park in excahnge for a moderate walk (less than 1/2 mile).

First of all this hotel is so outdated and motel style. it is definitely not a three star hotel. The rooms are small and nothing great about them. The beds are terrible. We had to have them replace our fridge because it wasn't working. The pool area / bar was nice but we didn't spend a lot of time at... More

This property underwent a 1.5 mm renovation in all public spaces and guest rooms in 2012 with all new furnishings, including soft goods, in the guest rooms and public spaces. It is... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Best Western. The location was great, conveniently located to resturants, retail and only a 10-15 minute ride to Siesta Key Beach. The bed was very comfy and I thought the room and other facilities were well kept. Breakfast was great each day and they offer free 24 hour coffee/hot chocolate and free popcorn. Take... More

Just returned from 4 night stay at Best Western Siesta Key Gateway. The hotel is very well kept with clean rooms and a wonderful pool area. Sand Dollar pool bar was a nice place to relax and meet new friends. Harry sports bar is next door and had good food at modest prices. Also several other restaurants within walking distance....

Had 5 nights here, very clean and friendly staff., Quite busy as the week went on due to some guests unable to go home as the snow was very bad at the North east coast. All facilities in room plus security box. This is a B.W. plus, so a few little extras on offer. Warm salted popcorn in the reception... More

The room was noisy and not cleaned on one day. The manager and one desk clerk were unpleasant--anything that went wrong was seen to be our fault. The breakfasts were disappointing. There is no fresh fruit available in Florida???
