“Pleasant place to stay near Siesta Key”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Clean, well-run hotel you can use as base camp for Siesta Key. Rooms open to the outside. Big TV. TV remote control wrapped in a disposable cardboard sleeve for sanitary purposes (first time I've seen that). In-room safe and fridge. Functioning elevator. Three PCs in lobby & free wi-fi. Well-stocked free breakfast with a very helpful lady in charge. Another nice touch: Free popcorn in lobby.

We were looking for a quick overnight getaway and had the pleasure of this property. As hotel snobs we were more than pleasantly surprised by the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel.


It's a very busy property and check in was not available until 4pm as guaranteed...not a problem for us. I could not believe the comments made and attitudes thrown towards the front desk as people are just plain rude. The agent took it all in stride and made it almost seem to be an act in a comedy...we enjoyed the added entertainment!

Great location for so many reasons an will certainly be back!

Due to a delayed flight we arrived in the middle of the night and ended up with an extra person that was to be dropped off elsewhere but due to the hour we couldn't. Maurice was very helpful in getting us in to a more comfortable room and even brought a rollaway up to us. He was awesome - friendly and very welcoming! He made our experience much better. Thanks Maurice!

Michelle at the front desk was very helpful. Even with a slight issue with an employee calling in at the last minute the breakfast went smoothly and was as good as the day before.
The only negative thing was that we couldn't stay longer. Would definitely stay here again.

This Best Western PLUS in Siesta Key was in the midst of everything to do in that area. Among the places we visited were Historic Spanish Point, Marie Selby Gardens, Ringling Bros Estate, Anna Maria Island and much more. Our hotel was comfortable and breakfast made a great start to every day.

From check-in to check-out our experience was great! The hotel and guest rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool was fabulous! Breakfast was quit extensive and very yummy. This hotel was in close proximity to Siesta Key Beach and there was nice shopping right across the streetfrom the hotel. Would definitely return.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at this hotel. We really appreciated the helpful staff, the free breakfast, complimentary cookies and popcorn in the afternoon. The hot chocolate was delicious! (I didn't think I'd drink hot choc in FL, but it was too good to pass up!) We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. Our room was a little small but clean when we arrived. Beds were comfy and Housekeeping left a little to be desired. Floors weren't cleaned and many days no extra shampoo or conditioner was left for us. We used the coin laundry facilities.
The location of the hotel is very handy to the beach (1/2 mile away) and many good restaurants. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot. It was quiet in spite of that. I think pretty...

The breakfast buffet was wonderfull with plenty of food options, hot and cold. The room was decorated nicely. Quiet stay, alot of older folks and families while we were there,I would definatley stay there again.

Room Tip: I would probably get a room closer to the pool if you go during the winter months. It's a cold w...
