“Nice place to stay, comfy bed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

We were visiting friends in Siesta Key but needed our own place to sleep so this was an affordable solution. It is very hard to find a room for just 2 nights near the beach there! The check in was easy, the room spotless and recently updated, the bed was SUPER comfy and crispy white sheets (my fave!) & soft pillows made my sleep there almost better than at home. In-room coffee, fridge, microwave, huge flatscreen TV, made the stay very comfortable overall. The breakfast was ample and good, the pool area large/clean, and they even give you 2 free happy hour drinks! We will definitely stay here again if we return to the area. My only "downside" was the clerk telling me our "stay won't count" because I booked via AAA.com?? which = No rewards points? Hmmm. No fair. Anyway... good hotel value overall.

We now stay at this gem of a hotel prior to spending 2 weeks in a rented house with relatives. A great way to get over jet lag, unwind and just kick back for a few days. Hotel is clean, comfortable and run by a fantastic group of helpful and efficient personnel. Good breakfast, great pool and tiki bar (kudos to Katrina who runs it), close to Siesta Key and numerous restaurants. Give it a try!

Our son recently moved to Sarsota. We go down every couple of months to visit and have stayed about six times now at the Siesta Key Best Western. It is VERY well located. On the main highway, and also on the main entrance to the beach road going to Siesta Key. The pool and hot tub are always well maintained, and there is a nice snack bar. Laundry service is available also. It is a Very Nice HOtel for the price & we always return.

We went for a wedding on Siesta Key. All the hotels/condos on the key were going to cost us around 250$ to 300$. We booked using priceline for 70$ a night. I was a clean room, a little dated but good for the value. It was a perfect location for access to the key and all the shops. We used Jonny's free beach rides during our stay and it was perfect. We didn't need to worry about finding parking and we could both have a few drinks.

Room Tip: Use jonny's free beach rides! It's a tip only service and they are fast and friendly.

We were very pleased with our stay. The staff made everything easy. From printing out boarding passes, to accommodating our request for some beach chairs to bring to the nearby beach. The hotel has a good location, near stores and restaurants and close to the beaches. This is our second visit and we will return.

By and large I agree with most of the recent reports. This is a good value hotel, in a great location - with loads of services close by. The Ritz Carlton it ain't - but it is not pretending to be. Close to Siesta Key beach and only 6 miles off I75. Try the Red Lobster close by.

Room Tip: Overlookinghe pool should be good - although if busy could be noisy
