Its just what it says ... a Best Western .. PLUS, it is a Best Western but with nice added amenities, a nice breakfast every day, cookies baked for the guests in the afternoons, popcorn available in the lobby along with drinking water, coffee and other drinks, a nice pool with a bar. This hotel is close to everything and the rooms were clean. We will stay again when we visit. The price is reasonable for the area and the staff is very nice.

Room Tip: the king room was a little small, but we were only in the room to sleep, so it was fine and even had...

We had a great stay at this hotel. It's not far from the key but is a much better price than things on the beach. Also made for quick travels to other places besides Siesta. Great pool and very helpful staff. One disclaimer, the hotel has a sign by the hot tub that it might discolor your swimsuit and it definitely did ours. Not a big deal but something to remember, brig a spare older suit.

Having stayed on the Key last year decided to stay in a cheaper hotel this year and choose the best western located just down the road from the bridge onto the Key. Didn't realise when I booked the hotel that I had booked a wheelchair room! I asked to be moved but the hotel was full at this time. The room was clean but old as was the rest of the hotel. The bed was comfortable and we were not disturbed by any noise during our three night stay
Breakfast was manic and had to share a table every morning, guess early April is a very busy time!
We ended up on turtle beach each day as the queue in the right hand lane stretched nearly back to the hotel!

Stayed a couple of nights at this Best Western Plus Gateway. Very polite, professional and helpful reception, breakfast very good quality and best of all the room was VERY clean. Not one spot of mold on the tiles in the shower. That is difficult in Florida being near the sea and with the humidity. Beds are firm and excellent and really enjoyed the HD 42in TV. Room had a mini fridge and micro oven. Stayed on second floor overlooking the pool. Very good value for pricing.

The bar by the pool is awesome. The bartender was exceptional. I regret that I cannot remember her name. She was great! Please be sure to get a drink made with Siesta Key Rum. Siesta Key Rum was tasty. The room was good. The pool was great. But the bartender was Fantastic!!

hotel was convienent to everything. Clean, very nice and accomodating staff, restaurants, bars, shopping, beach all great. We used Johnny's shuttle one night which is a free shuttle you just tip the driver it was great. In walking distance to restaurants and shopping and the beach is just 5 minutes down the road by car. I would definitely stay there again.
