We stayed here for a quick weekend July 11-13. Extremely pleasantly surprised by the hotel and included amenities! Free popcorn in the lobby, along with free coffee, and a great free continental breakfast 0700-1000 in the morning (french toast, sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits, creamed chipped beef, fruit, yogurt, milk). Free on demand shuttle to where ever you want to go, just tip the driver. Room was small, but clean with white linens. Safe, microwave, and fridge all in room. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. 0.9 miles to closest public beach access, 2.5 miles to village area. If you choose to drive to Siesta Key main public beach, go early if it is peak season....the people that took our spot were driving lot for one hour at 1230 pm for a parking spot. Turtle beach is quiet, plenty of spots, and a great spot to check out, although not nearly as beautiful as the main beach.
Overall the Best Western is an excellent value!!
