“A lovely hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of July on a road trip around Florida. The hotel is in a great location to visit the beautiful beaches nearby, including Siesta Key, Venice and Caspersen Beach. We had a double double pool side room which was located in one corner which had an outside terraced area with seating and fan. The hotel is a 2 storey motel style property that centres around a lovely pool and Tiki Bar. Even though we were close to the pool it was very quiet and the bar shut at a reasonable hour. The rooms are very well decorated in a modern style and the bathroom was very large. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. All the staff were very polite and helpful. To summarise I would say that the hotel is a very clean, contemporary, friendly hotel with a great atmosphere and in a great location to explore the Sarasota bay area.

We stayed at Bentley's in Sarasota for three days.... what a wonderful little hotel! Recently remodeled, the rooms are clean and fresh with all updated and nice linens and furnishings. The breakfast and free wi-fi are a huge bonus and we did not find a lot of hotels in the area that offered all of this as such a great price. Both my husband and I felt this was the best deal in town and a great find to make our trip complete!!! Close to beaches, but easily accessible to the highway and exploring the area.

We spent both evenings down at the Tiki Bar.... Tina, our waitress, was a doll with great recommendations and attentive service!! (all with a smile!!) Our room overlooked the pool with a great view of the Tiki Bar and lights all evening. Fun to sit on the balcony and watch the people.... live band one night and even a small wedding reception/dinner one night!

I highly recommend this little hotel.... cannot beat the price and the amenities! Also try to tiki bar.... from lobster to pizza.... drinks were good and the people were super accomodating!!

Room Tip: Request a room on the second floor, overlooking the pool.... a small extra charge was well worth the...

We wanted to get away for a weekend so I found this hotel online. It's amazing. The bathrooms are huge, the beds are very comfortable and I was worried about noise because our room had huge windows and right off the pool but we never heard anything. The location is great. Maybe 20 mins to siesta key and 15 to Venice beach. I can't wait to go back. The pool is awesome and you really don't even have to leave the hotel. They have a great restaurant and tiki bar and grill on site.

Room Tip: pool side rooms are definitely worth it.

We didn't want to leave. The Hotel was comfortable,convenient, accomadating,clean, and had a nice modern contemporary design inside and out. The Staff was both friendly and knowlegable.Morgan's restraunt was nice and Tiki Bar & Grill. Dianne the bartender was very helpful and friendly and the grill cooks. The pool was nice, pool area was very relaxing, and was very pretty and beach like. Lobby also has computers and a relaxing seating area. The complimentary breakfast was pretty decent and had a variety. You could also choose to order and pay for a cooked breakfast. It's served in the Morgan's restraunt. The room was comfortable. It has a mini fridge in it which was helpful. Hotel is not on the beach but it's close and they do offer transportation to and from. It's on the main road which made it convenient to go places and was also convenient to 75. Over All loved my stay!

I have visited Bentley s a number of times but recently I am spending Sunday afternoons at their Tiki bar, why I hear you ask, is it the music that is played is it the fantastic food that is served or could it be the service from the delightful staff ? Well all of the listed but with a beer and the pool and the relaxing ambiance an afternoon in paradise.

Thank you for sharing about your recent time spent at the Tiki bar. It is always a pleasure to hear how much one loves our outdoor oasis. From our pool to the tiki bar and grill, there is something here for everyone. Have you tried Morgan's yet? Chef Izzy has prepared an incredible menu from the hand dusted coconut shrimp to the grilled coulotte steak. Also if you play an instrument you can play for us on Thursdays in Morgans from 7pm to 10m for our open jam nights. You should try it on your next sunny funday at the Bentley's Boutique Hotel.

This was our first time staying at Siesta Key, hotel was chosen via the internet. The price was more than reasonable and it fully lived up to our expectations. It was memorable not only for the standard of the hotel but also the friendliness of the staff, especially Angela and her colleagues at the Tiki Bar, we will definitely return next year.

Thank you for your great review. We are overjoyed by your comments about our staff. Our tiki bar is a wonderful place to sit and relax from the drink specials to the food it is a delightful place to be. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the live music we have over the weekends at the tiki bar while you were here. Hope to see you again in the near future.

We flew to Florida for a wedding and stayed here for the wedding reception. It wasn't a very nice property. You are no where near the beach and need to drive there. So they've dumped beach sand in planting areas inside the pool area for a beach look, but with warning signs not to walk on it. Just silly. If your idea of a nice weekend or vacation is to drive to a run down and far off the water motel, and then sit in loungers or chairs on a crowded pool deck, with sand spread around the perimeter, then this place is for you. Otherwise just skip it and go to a plane motel on the highway and drive to enjoy the beach. Service tends to be slow and sporadic for both the pool side bar and restaurant.

It's also one of those low class places where someone runs out of their room to the pool deck with half a dozen towels first thing in the morning to "reserve" their loungers for the day. So when you go down for a mid-morning swim, you are likely to find most of the chairs and loungers with towels on them but very few people around. Management makes no attempt stop this like they do at more reputable hotels, or at least hotels with enough chairs. Our group of 4 found a lone chair on which to drop our sandals and cover-ups to go in the pool.

The wedding reception with sit down dinner left a lot to be desired. I don't know what the hosts paid for the event, but unless it was exceptionally cheap I certainly wouldn't recommend it as a venue. They provided for an open bar for the arrival reception in the lounge area. The hors de oeuvres were very nice and served by multiple attentive wait staff who kept them coming. But the open bar had only 2 bar tenders who simply couldn't keep up and lines formed. there wasn't even an attempt to have on of the wait staff circulate with glasses of wine or ice water so folks could get a drink. Then the sit down dinner in the dining room was fair-to-mediocre. Strangely, the dining room bar (with same 2 bartenders as the reception) was to be open until a pre-arranged limit was reached and then revert to a cash bar. But instead, the staff took it upon themselves to take credit cards and open tabs on everyone as soon as they set up. Just poor service.


We hoped to have a nice Florida visit and a break from the cool northern weather in addition to the wedding. But it just wasn't fun or worth the price.

Room Tip: Stay away from the "premium" rooms facing the pool. It's neither pleasant nor especial...
