My gicame to Siesta Key on Labor Day weekend on a whim and stopped at the Inn on our way in. After talking with Paige, the innkeeper, she told us they had one room available and we decided to stay. The inn was clean, well maintained, cute decor in the room. Even though they were doing construction it still wasn't noisy or a problem.
Paige helped us find a good spot to rent paddleboards (which can be a challenge with the waves!), recommended several options for dinner and nightlife, and told us where to access the beach. The location is perfect--we parked the car and never drove it until we were ready to leave. We walked to the village for dinner at the Cottage, which had fantastic Peruvian fare, although you wouldn't guess it from the name. They were having a bar crawl and we ended up hitting all 3 main nightlife spots: Daiquiri's (awkward, poor music), Gilligan's (fun, with DJ and dancing), and Siesta Key Oyster Bar aka SKOB (live bluegrass band with dancing, a TON of fun). We ended up closing out the night dancing at SKOB with mostly locals.
Had breakfast at the Sun Garden which was gourmet and delicious, highly recommended.
Overall the experience was great! Paige is really accommodating, friendly, and helpful, and the room was great. We didn't swim in the pool, though, because we spent all our time at the beach. Next time!
