Very nice and clean hotel with fun things to do. Employees very nice. Nice pool area, corn hole game and life size chest game. Bar at the pool was very nice and music at night. Very close to Siesta Key.

Hotel's Favorite
We LOVE this hotel. It is clean and has so much to offer.. The beds are Very comfortable and they have the best pillows!!!! The pool is AWESOME , the hot tub is the perfect temperature and the gas fire pit is so pretty to sit around in the evening. There are plenty of lounge chairs and tables around the pool so you can enjoy the day and have a drink from the fantastic bar located right in the pool area. They have live entertainment on Thur-Sat. They provide free taxi service to anywhere on the island of Siesta key ( go enjoy a nice day at the beach or have dinner and a few drinks ) no worrying about parking or traffic. The hotel is within walking distance to several shops and restaurants and don't forget Able's ice cream. The staff are friendly and efficient and go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They will give you information on local places to go for entertainment , dinner or drum circles. We have been staying at this hotel for about fifteen years and have never had a complaint. We are already planning our next trip !!!!!

The hotel was very nice and clean. I enjoyed the hot breakfast every morning. I spent most of my days at the beach, but in the evening, cable tv and internet were both somewhat spotty. The pool and jacuzzi were both very nice. Next time I will have to stay long enough to enjoy the poolside bar. Overall a very nice stay.

The hotel met our needs for the long weekend. It was clean and somewhat updated for an old hotel. The bed was comfortable. The staff was very friendly & professional. The poolside bar & entertainment was a nice feature.

My husband and I needed to be in town just overnight and didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg. We picked BW for the location and price and hoped for the best. It was a great room! Up to date, clean, great pool and poolside bar. I would highly recommend!!
