“Sarasota”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

This hotel is less than 10 minutes away from Siesta Key Beach. Also, near good restaurants and shopping areas. All rooms have a 42 inch flat TV. The complimentary breakfast is very good. The outdoor heating swimming pool is very nice and you also can relax in the hot tub. The lush tropical landscape is very well taking care of. It also offers an exercise facility, including an stationary bike, weight lifting equipment and a treadmill. The staff is very friendly. The price per night is very reasonable and I considered to be a good value. I definitively will come back again.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the pool, otherwise you'll be facing the parking lot

We were very impressed with the staff & the location of the Hotel. Also we were impressed with the breakfast & pop corn during the afternoon. Also we found it convenient. We had a lot good restaurants nearby. Johnny the cab driver was also very convenient to take us to the beach & the Village. Over all it is a great place to spend some great time with family & friends.

Room was immaculate, if just a little bit small. Staff were courteous and very helpful. The pool bar made our stay! Lots of fun and service by bartender Katrina was excellent. The location for anyone wanting to visit Siesta Key is perfect, just a few minutes away, plus they offer free shuttle service. Good restaurants very close, and the free breakfast was very good. GREAT TRIP!

For the price and the distance from Siesta Key Beach, this is a great pick. Although the room was smaller than I have seen in any hotel I have ever been in, it was clean and neat. The pool area was relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The coffee was disgusting. The breakfast was okay.

We booked a three night stay on labor day weekend. Conveniently located in sarasota, near siesta key village and beach. Booked kinda of late so we got a two room suite with a king and sofa pull out for the kids. Room was clean. King bed was comfortable and our kids enjoyed sleeping on pull out couch and having their own room and bathroom. Front desk was very polite and helpful in letting us check in early. Free breakfast was good for our family allowing us to save a few extra bucks. We always stay with best western and never seem to have a bad experience. I guessed we just been lucky so far. Don't really have any complaints about this hotel cause we didn't spend much time at it.

The hotel is clean and conveniently located, the beds were not as comfortable as I would have liked but were ok. The pool and hot tub were very comfortable and well maintained. The breakfast was basic and the server was very accomodating and pleasant. I liked the popcorn stand in the lobby. the hotel provided computers and printer worked very well no issues there.

The room, although small was clean and comfortable. The hotel location is close to the beaches (driving, not walking). Easy to find. Staff very nice. Pool a little too warm. But I dont know if that can b avoided, it was pretty hot outside.
