We just came back from a 5 nights stay at the Best Western PLUS Siesta Key Gateway and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well located in walking distance from 2 good restaurants (Carrabas and Longhorn). The beds are comfortable, there is a good size mini-fridge, a safe and a micowave in the room. The hôtel and the pool... More

We used the Best Western Plus as a stop gap in our holiday as we had used it in the past and again had a very good stay, in a very clean, well kept, well equipped motel. The pool area was stunning with plenty of seating, loungers, and clean pool towels. I didn't use the gym myself ( i was... More

Great location to get to Siesta Key beaches, Ringling Museum, and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Staff is OK, not too interested in helping, Internet down 2 out of 3 days, room needed to be changed out as A/C very noisy, don't stay near an elevator nor on poolside if you want Quiet.

Staff was pleasant at check in as well as departure. The lady in the breakfast area was very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay at this location again and it is only... More

Nice updated hotel. Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff! Great free breakfast! Close to the beach!! I would definitely stay again if traveling to the Siesta Key area. I read some reviews and was a little concerned but it was all for nothing. In fact, heard a gentleman at breakfast who tried staying at another location and had to leave to... More

We stayed here in July 2014. First, the price for the location is great. It was just over $100, which is great for how close it was to the Siesta Key beach public parking lot (five minutes, tops!). The breakfast was pretty good, except that they frequently ran out of things. For example, there was no syrup one day, the... More

Good location on corner to two main roads with easy access to Sarasota's tourist attractions. Free parking, good free breakfast. Rooms were comfortable & clean. Friendly bar beside pool area. People at front desk, bar & breakfast all very nice, friendly & helpful. Would happily stay here again.

I am a reviewer and I thought this would be my best bet for a Siesta Key hotel. The service was excellent. The rooms were nice and clean. We received two complimentary drinks at the pool bar and the location is perfect. It's only a 5 minute drive to the beach and there are so many restaurants and bars by... More

Close to the beach and good pricing! Great location if you want to be close to Siesta Key as well as downtown Sarasota. Every employee is very nice and helpful! The rooms are kept clean and the pool area is very nice. And who doesn't love two complimentary drinks by the pool as soon as your arrive?
