“Nice surprise”
Reviewed September 1, 2008

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Siesta Beach Resort. I was a bit concerned after reading a couple of negative reviews. The reception was wonderful; the friendly and extremely helpful folks at check-in offered to upgrade us to a suite. This was especially nice since we were having a mini-honeymoon and had booked a room to save $. The suite was clean and tastefully decorated. Perfect for a little get-away. We weren't terribly thrilled with the Siesta Beach party scene so probably won't return, but we would recommend it to others.

  • Liked — Friendliness of accommodating staff. Clean and thoughfully designed suite.

The location of this place is great..across the street from beautiful Siesa beach and right on the main drag. The place looks tropical and retro from the outside. The Jacuzzi Suite bathroom was clean...but the room was horrible..especially the BEDS! They were old and stained and the blankets had HAIR on them! Our room was a non smoking room , but smelled of stale smoke. There were guests outside of our room that were up until 3am partying loudly. I do NOT reccomend this place for families..maybe for spring breakers.

My husband were looking for a reasonably priced accommodation for a 1 night stay on Siesta Key. We live in the area and wanted a decent place to stay so we could hook up with close friends who were staying at another resort on the key (the rate at their resort exceeded what I wanted to pay for a place to sleep.)

When we checked in it was clear the place is older but that's OK. There are many quaint older spots - that's part of the charm of Siesta Key! It isn't totally commercialized like some of the other keys.

The gentleman at the desk was very gracious and knowledgeable. I watched him give other guests great information about the area and how to get around easily on the key.

We'd been assigned a room across from the Blase Cafe - it would probably be a great spot for those who planned to spend the night over there but we were tired and just wanted to get a good night's sleep w/o the noise generated by an enthusiastic crowd of martini drinkers. He was very sympathethic and gave us another room - the one farthest from the cafe'.

The bottom line is.... the staff have great customer service skills but the place is old and in desperate need of of a total remodeling. The a/c is antiquainted, noisy and runs constantly. The bathroom, while spacious is outdated - mold/mildew in the shower and in the faucets; mirrors need to be replaced. The drapes seemed fairly new but there was a bare curtain rod on the window facing the street - take it down or put something (hopefully color-coordinated) on it. The floor has old crappy carpet - bring your flip flops - and an interesting slant that makes you wonder if the subfloor is sturdy. There was a stove and refrig - the stove was so rusted I didn't have the guts to look in the fridge. The exterior wrought iron railing is disintegrating - there's been an obvious feeble attempt to cover the rust with paint - but the handrail was almost rusted through in some places.

As 1 reviewer mentioned - this reminds me of a room that would be more than OK for spring breakers but not for an area that attracts families and professionals.

After having read the recent unfavorable reviews of the Siesta
Beach Resort and Suites, my partner and I arrived with
some trepidation of what we would find.

We were greeted in a professional and friendly manner
by the receptionist. To our surprise we were given
a complimentary upgrade, which we were informed the
property tries to do for guests when available, to a
suite.

Our suite, 207, was extremely comfortable and afforded
a partial view of the beautiful Siesta Key Beach. It also
gave us a wonderful porch which overlooked the
entertaining street life and art fair going on the weekend
we were in Siesta Key.

The hotel is superbly located, both next to the Siesta Key
Village (with great restaurant and shopping venues) and
and the glorious beach for which the island is so well
loved.

I did not have an opportunity to see any of the non-suite
accommodations, so I cannot comment on other
guests' reviews.

However, I can say we spent a wonderful 4 nights in a
most comfortable suite, in a hotel that could not have
been better located to enjoy the pleasures that
Siesta Key has to offer.

My husband planned a romantic getaway as a suprise... He did hours of research online to find somewhere that had a jaccuzzi tub in the room and was impressed with the photos online.

When we arrived in the room- it was a bit small, no biggie. It was not directly on the beach, no biggie. We were still going to make the best of it.

The toilet was running and after calling maintenance- 2.5 hours later- they were able to resolve the problem. They found a broken crack pipe flushed in the toilet. Yes- true story. We requested another room but they were going to charge us more money for a room with less ammenities. When we asked for a discounted rate after being freaked out that there were drug users in the room the night before and the lost time/ aggrivation- they refused.

We left and found another hotel to save our weekend.

We thought we were lucky to be able to prebook a room at a ' Resort hotel' on Siesta Key before we set off fro Orlando and as the price quoted at $220 a night we had expected at least the equivalent of a 3 star motel.
A single claustrophobic room behind the reception area , no parking space, a small window looking on the back of a pillar, worn and faded bed linen. In 20 years of visits to the States this was the worst accomodation we have ever experianced.

We stayed here on our first trip to the Sarasota area. I'm 40 something, and haven't stayed in a place this bad since college! What was described to me on the phone as a great "suite" was actually two tiny rooms. The tile floors and bathroom upgrades are a waste, as the bathroom is still tiny (not like shown on the website, or at least ours wasn't). The bedroom barely had room for the bed, nightstands and armoire. The flat-screen TV which was emphasized in my phone conversation with the reservations agent was mounted on the wall NEXT TO THE EXTERIOR DOOR! Hardly a comfy spot for TV watching, and the two old wicker sofas were so uncomfortable we didn't even bother. The room was fairly clean, which is the only positive I could find. The pool and courtyard area could be nice, but the landscaping is old and not attractive. The one bright spot was discovering the Blase Cafe, which is in the building next door. The downside of the location of this great bar, however, is that I suspect many of the people at the motel were kept awake at night by the loud music.
