Shuttle service unreliable and hotel room clean other than the outer edges of the floors. Found a can of chewing tobacco on the floor an also spider eggs along the edge of the inside of the room on the floor. Thankfully, the beds were clean and the bathrooms were clean. Could use some updating of decor but nothing major. During... More

We stayed here with my kids & husband for the weekend? We chose this place because of its close location to the beach, yet it fell way below our expectations. The building is old and right next to it is a trailer parking area which was an eye sore. The first night we arrived we found hair in our pillows... More

This hotel is close to the beach and many restaruants, the free shuttle was great... Love the bartending staff out by the pool...Over all nice rooms, not fancy but good for the price. I highly recommend the sports bar Harry's in front of the hotel; Good food nice staff and good entertainment.

Great place to stay for the money. Clean and comfortable. Blankets on bed were less than adequate but everything else was wonderful. Right across from shopping center and grocery store. Very close to Siesta Key Beach.

I was a guest at this hotel and I brought my own down pillow from home. Unfortunately when I checked out, I left my pillow in the room. I realized my mistake when I got home the next day. I immediately called to inquire about it and I was transferred to the general managers voicemail. I left a voicemail and... More

Our family and I stayed here for two nights. The rooms were very clean. The shower had great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The beds were super comfortable. The pool was clean and beautiful with a nice little tiki bar and towels were provided as well by the pool. The breakfast was great. Delicious food and a wide... More

We stay here everytime we come to Siesta Key! Pool is great but the added cabana bar is awesome! Great salads and smoothies for the kids! Also close to Siesta Key right over the bridge. Two great restaurants right next door plus grocery store across the street.

The room was very small and dirty. Very few towels provided. I cannot see myself ever going to a Best Western hotel again. This was a thorough waste of money which really hurts. I honestly thought that the price we paid we could get something must better. I should be happy that my car was not stolen as the area... More
