We recently stayed here for two nights on our mini "honeymoon"... The hotel is updated and actually very nice. The pool is really nice, but we didn't get a chance to go swimming. The nightly rate was good, and we chose this hotel because we couldn't get a hotel on Siesta Key. It was close enough that we didn't even... More

Our stay was amazing. The hotel was clean and very accomodating. The daily breakfast selection is excellent. The hotel is about 5/10 minutes from Siesta Key Beach. We stayed in an executive suite and it was spacious and very well priced. We will definetly stay here, again. 5 stars, *****. EXCELLENT VALUE FOR THE PRICE.

So we stayed here over the Fourth of July Holiday. I chose this particular hotel because I was unable to find a condo over the holiday weekend on Siesta Key Island that would book us for less than seven days. The Best Western was the closest hotel to Siesta Key, which is ranked the number two beach in the United... More

Hotel is clean, service is excellent and the view is amazing! The staff is very attentive and extremely accomodating. The exterior is well manicured and looks very nice. Seating is very comforatable both inside and out, and I like the availability of the grill for use by the guests. Of course the breakfast selection is great and well stocked! I... More

Stayed for one night for 4th of July. Arrived late and regret not being able to take advantage of the property. The room was very clean and spacious with one of the largest televisions that have seen in a hotel room. Swings are available for a great lounging experience. Pool and jacuzzi with a great patio area. Just a couple... More

Perfect hotel for families if you have a car. The heated pool is great for encouraging hesitant young swimmers to literally take the plunge. Good hot breakfast, but after three mornings it gets a little boring, so ask the staff for directions to First Watch, a restaurant just down the street (driving distance) for a great breakfast. Hotel is within... More

We spent 2 days at this hotel and the rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. It has nice landscaping and a pretty fountain down by the pool. The pool is nice with comfortable lounge chairs and tables. The hotel offers a free breakfast buffet that was good. They also have free tea, coffee and cappiccinos... More

I liked this hotel. Stayed here almost a full week, 6 nights. The area is very safe with close proximity to Siesta Key Beach. I recommend a car because the beach is not close enough to walk to and Sarasota is too big to rely on public transportation, especially if you want to head over to St. Armand's Circle and... More

The staff for a Siesta Key Beach event chose to stay at the Best Western Plus Siesta Key Gateway due to its proximity to the beach and affordable prices. Upon check-in, the staff had all the rooms ready to go. We also had to make adjustments to the block and it was easily done with no push back from the... More
