“a little piece of paradice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My wife and I chose this hotel quite by accident, and boy, what a great place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the room was spacious and very tastefully decorated. We both slept like babies in the large king bed with egyption cotton sheets. Plenty of white sand beach, just 30 seconds from our door, and you can either rent beach chairs or bring your own. We will definitely be back, and hopefully real soon...Great Value, Great Place...

Room Tip: we chose the King corner room, room 162, wonderful room, and very spacious!

We needed a hotel for one night so had never spent any time at Siesta Key so we booked into the Tropical Beach Resort after reading reviews about it. We knew it was a group of renovated motel units so that was no surprise. We also knew the square footage of the unit we were going to be in. Check in was friendly and fast and although our room wasn't ready they gave us an equivalent room so we were able to check in early. Our unit the Sandpiper was wonderful, whoever did the renovations did them first class. We had a small kitchenette with granite countertop and stainless steel appliances. The king bed looked so inviting with a lovely cream duvet, it was just as comfortable as it looked and was like sleeping on a cloud. There was a leather love seat and a table with 3 chairs. It was perfect for 2 people.The beach was about a 2 minute walk and you could rent chairs and umbrellas there if you wanted or they allowed you to take chairs from the resorts.

Room Tip: We found a restaurant just a short walk away called Captain Kurt's where we had delicious chowde...

After reading reviews we did not expect too much but just wanted three nights rest after Orlando.
It was perfect. Beach with whitest sand few minutes walk. Staff so pleasant. We arrived two hours early and the room was ready for us.

If you want to take beach chairs to beach, no problem. Plenty of beach and pool towels
No rules, regulations and horrible signs up. Very welcoming. Barbecues on site and beach if you want to use them in their private beach.

Motel type and not luxury but okay, accommodation with modern kitchenette, full oven, microwave, fridge and freezer.

Very short walk to some bars and restaurants. Publix supermarket 5 mins drive away.

We are now in Key West in much more luxury but prefer the accommodation and helpfulness of the Siesta Key accommodation.

Room Tip: If you want to crash out and rest this is perfect but for children they only have the pool to occupy...

We stayed five nights in a room with 2 full beds. The staff moved us to the second floor and a room with a large front window upon our request. Everyone on the staff was helpful and friendly. You can borrow beach towels, chairs, DVDs and more. You can also rent lounge chairs on the beach as well as umbrellas and canoes. The walk to the beach is lovely, you don't cross any roads, just walk down a nice brick path--takes 30 seconds--and the beach itself is gorgeous. Go for the sunsets and the white sand. Our room was quiet. There is a food stand with coffee and breakfast sandwiches--perfect for your first morning, especially. Our kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, didn't even need to buy coffee filters--just the coffee itself, although they do give you some, and tea bags. The cleaning staff did a good job and were helpful. The landscaping was well-tended. Other things to do: drive up the island to the "town" for food and shops, go into Sarasota for food, shops, movies, Ringling Brothers Museum. Go to St. Petersburg for Salvador Dali Museum. Go inland to the Myakka River State Park and go on a walk in the forest canopy and an airboat tour to see alligators and birds. This hotel is perfect for families with children (who will love the pool) and for couples. Siesta Key is not the singles scene you find in other Florida locations. We were very happy with this hotel.

Room Tip: If you need a room with two full beds, reserve 121--the room is upstairs and has a nice big front wi...

I stayed here for 2 nights. I read reviews prior to my stay but decided to give it a try anyway. This resort is just average. I couldnt see the water from the room and had about a 3 min walk to the beach. I wouldn't go back.

We were looking for a stay near the beach and came across this motel. The website seemed very promising. Reality is that the rooms are smaller and feel very crowded.
Reception on arrival was very sharp and efficient. On departure totally disinterested.
The noise levels were not good, but the noise did not come from guests. We had a day in as my wife felt unwell and were subject to continual banging, drilling, electric saws. There was no effective soundproofing with the staff workshop/store next to our unit. Then the maid trolleys and trash bins rumbled backwards and forwards.
The motel is clean and will appeal to many. Not for us.

Stayed here for one night. Great location and nice rooms. They are a bit small, but as there is outdoor space, we didn’t mind. 2 minute walk to the beach. Nice grill and outdoor seating available. Room was clean and updated.
