Went for a drink at the bar and the rudest lady was serving. Waited 5 minutes before she even acknowledged me... More

We came to Siesta Key for a quick one day stay. This hotel was a nice hotel for a reasonable price. The pool area is awesome with a great little Tiki- bar. The drive to the beach is very short and Siesta Key has a nice public access with plenty of parking or the hotel has a free taxi (tips... More
