Can't say how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The rooms are clean, the beds are extremely comfortable, free Wifi (with excellent connection) and with a complimentary breakfast each morning you can't go wrong. The hotel is approx 5 min drive to the beach, there is a shuttle service to the beach for those of... More

Booked BW Plus for soccer tournament at IMG in Bradenton. Hotel was good for what we paid for it. Staff was friendly and amenities in lobby were excellent. Got "suite" which was actually two adjoining rooms with a king bed in one room and fold away couch in the other. Needless to say...no adult can sleep on fold away couch... More

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.

Thank you for your review of our hotel property. It is unfortunate that you were unable to enjoy any of the complimentary amenities that we offer from 100% Arabica coffee available 24 hours a day and cappuccino to a complimentary, full, hot breakfast with a rotating menu that includes 4 hot items with meat and egg included everyday. In addition... More

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.
