I think what made this hotel very special is the team that works there, particularly Kevin who is the world’s friendliest receptionist. After a long and boring transatlantic flight we just wanted to get a room and relax. When we arrived at the hotel Kevin gave us a really warm welcome and told us everything there is to know about...

Don't think this is Siesta Key, it isn't. It is only a drive away so convenient for visiting. There is a really nice pool and pool bar a perfect end to the day. The adjacent food outlets are of a good standard and we stayed 2 nights and found an Italian restaurant one night and a steak bar the next.

If you're looking for a clean, affordable hotel that is convenient to the Siesta Key beaches then this is the place to stay.

It's also convenient to nearby stores and restaurants including one in front... More

Location great. everything else standard to low. Terrible experience with night clerk SCOTT, he would not provide additional blankets for three days straight of asking, got really confrontational and even threatened my wife. Only reason cops were not called is because I felt bad for the old, rude and crippled man. When we spoke to the manager instead of offering... More

Booked through priceline and management accommodated us with a roll-away bed with no problems! Popcorn and coffee always available! Freshly popped I might add!! East to find and about 2 mile away from Siesta Key public beach. Lots of eateries near!

Great location near the beaches and plenty of restaurants nearby. Convenient shuttle to beaches and downtown if you don't want to drive. A/C did not seem as cool as temperature listed, but was adequate. I would stay again.

we stayed overnite after a four day weekend at Orlando. the hotel is close to the beach and easy to find. The outside looks average but you cannot beat the price to the professional service, and cleanliness. The room is clean and spotless. Bathroom is so clean and cleaner than the very expansive Marrriot and Sheraton in Orlando. the front... More

The room had a bad smell of mildew. The mattresses were very uncomfortable. The rooms were not cleaned until very late in the afternoon each day. We had to search out towels each day for showers. The free breakfast was above average from others we have had. The pool and pool bar were nice, although the pool water was too... More

Dennis, the maintenance manager was absolutely awesome. Katrina the bartender was so cool and accommodating. We are planning another trip in December and will definitely come back to stay at the Best Western.

We had a very good experienced staying at Best Western Plus Siesta Key Gateway. Excellent location close to all sort of businesses, Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Shopping Centers, etc. Clean rooms, refrigerator, microwave and safe in the room. In my opinion, the beds are antiquated. They need to be replaced and fast. They are too hard and do not provide a... More
