Quiet nice good place to stay. Spacious rooms clean bed tidy bath room. Hearty break fast. Over all good food and good service. On our arrival @ 2 pm (after our long drive from Orlando) the reception staff refused to give us room until 4 pm and did not permit early check in though rooms were ready and available

The room was very neat and the bed was amazingly comfortable! A full breakfast had options for anyone whether you are carb freaks for high protein folks. Staff was very friendly & respectful. Truly a re-visit for us in the future! It was very close to Siesta key beach.

Clean and nice small hotel with OK location. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Small pool area with a bar, serving refreshments and sandwiches, etc. Bar closed at 10 pm, wich we felt was a litte bit too early :-( This hotel is a very good alternative if you can't afford the more expencive beachfront hotels in Sarasota. We spend 3... More

Loved the atmoshere and the location. Only 10 minutes from ocean. The pool and outdoor bar was very clean and an enjoyable area to be and relax. Breakfast was good. Air conditioner is loud. But overall, I recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel, close to the pool, easy in-out for multiple race sessions. Close to everything. Reasonable rates. Trip advisor requires 200 characters to continue. Look, I'm just trying to say it's a nice enough place for a swim meet. Can you just take it like that..

Old outdated, dirty looking room. Everything was so old and used looking, from the bed linens to the furniture, carpeting, fixtures, elevator and drapery. Room was stuffy smelling and not fresh at all. All three of my colleagues were very disappointed and if it wasn't so late when we checked in we would have gone somewhere else. Nothing like the...

If you're in need of an affordable, clean & comfortable hotel near the Siesta Key beaches then this is an excellent choice. The room was clean and the location is great for going to the beach as well as nearby stores and restaurants. There is also free beach transportation available that operates solely on tips. We've stayed there twice so... More

Best Western was clean and front desk amiable. It was an older best western but satisfied our needs. But we were not as lucky as we were at thebest western we stayed at in St Augustine which was much nicer. The room rate was reasonable for the area and was about 2 1/miles from Siesta Key beach.
