The fact that there was a full breakfast instead of just a continental breakfast where you only get cereal was a bonus. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again when I go back to visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a great place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, roomy, wonderful room."
We found the room large and comfortable. No problems whatsoever! Temperature perfect. Great view!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Siesta Beach!"
Very responsive staff and an awesome breakfast. Within its price range, I would rate the experience a 4. Comfortable room, but small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel about 2 miles from the beach."
My stay here was good. Very close to the beach. Breakfast was decent and the rooms wre small but overall ok. Guess you don't need a giant room when you have a beautiful beach around the corner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel to stay at if looking for a cheap hotel"
The hotel staff was great and very helpful. Best Western is a great hotel close to Siesta Key that is cheap and at the same time has a pleasing room to stay at after a long day.Genuine Expedia guest review
This stay was okay..... When we first got to the room I noticed that the entertainment center had icky stuff all over it. I was disappointed but thought tomorrow when it gets cleaned they won't miss it again and clean it. Well when we got back from the beach the next day the icky stuff was still there. Very disappointed again! Dirty towels weren't removed […] on a daily basis and no new towels were left either. The front desk staff weren't very friendly, you kind felt like you were bothering them. I called one night to ask how we can rent a movie thru cable and the man who answered the phone just said 'you don't'. I was shocked at his customer service. The Wi-Fi did not work the whole time we were there. They have been having problems with it but of course they don't tell you that when you check in. They should tell you these things just in case you have to work from there. The website does say free internet. Overall this experience was an okay one. I wouldn't stay here again or recommend anyone to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Siesta Key Triathlon"
The hotel was close to the Triathlon, they were the choice hotel of the event. Room was close to the parking lot, easy to get in and out, and was comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In need of an upgrade"
This hotel was probably a very good one in the 80's, however, it should have been maintained to reflect changing times after this in our opinion. We booked a suite and got a normal room due to a mistake they did - got the money back for the upgrade part, but it was still quite disappointing. Not a very clean bathroom - there were dark hairs on the floor […] and dirt in the corners, so it could have been better. The overall impression was that the hotel is a bit old and worn and not as clean as you expect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and convenient hotel"
We stayed one night in the hotel- just in town for a family gathering. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The location was perfect- almost impossible to stay this close to Siesta Key beach without committing to a longer stay in the beach condos. Breakfast was included and pretty decent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel for the Money"
The hotel was clean and very updated. The staff friendly and the pool was nice. Location is good to Siesta Key. Only complaint was staying across from elevator and next to ice machine. Very loudGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was fine, ur prefer to b on beach next time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location, Good service, Very cleane, I highly recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pan American games visit"
Nice hotel and good location for most of the stuff we needed. Close to the swim meet and affordable. Nice room Had a good timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as close to the beach as I thought"
This hotel is across the street from an RV park. The staff was friendly, rooms clean, complimentary popcorn, cookies, and breakfast a plus. Pool is small and has a sign stating please keep noise to a minimum. Pool was very harsh on our eyes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2013 family vacation"
Absolutely a great hotel service was awesome and the free breakfast was better than bob evans,,, not kidding ME AND MY WIFE Will BE BACKGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
Perfect location to the Siesta Key beaches; to excellent restaurants along Phillippi Creek, downtown Sarasota (highly recommend Selva); and to Ringling Museum and Ca d'Zan. Good, hot breakfast every morning, choices better than others serve. Spacious room. I did not bring my laptop; so having internet access in the lobby was a plus. Relatively quiet […] location considering how close you are to a major thoroughfare. Would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"pleasant weekend getaway from Ohio."
My husband and I were able to sneak away for few days, but not a full week and pretty last minute. This hotel was in our budget and extremely close to Siesta Beach, which is where we spent most of our time. Breakfast was plentiful and well kept. Our room was nice and cool when we arrived. The beds were extremely comfy! We were able to walk to some restaurants […] nearby. We had a great trip and will definitely keep this hotel in mind for future trips.

"Great experience. Will stay again!"
I had a great experience with this hotel. Breakfast was delicious, rooms were nice and clean, friendly staff, and it was in a great location minutes away from Siesta Key Beach. The only thing remotely negative I can say is that the room was quite small, but for 2 people it was totally fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Book your room on the pool side"
The hotel was clean. The staff was extremely nice. We stayed at the front of the hotel and were subjected to the sounds of the compressor for the airconditioning from the strip mall to the North of the hotel. It kept us up at night. The other side of the hotel seems to be much quieter.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to beach"
My fianc� and I had a wonderful stay. The room was very clean and quiet. The breakfast was good with French toast and scrambled eggs. The hotel is very close to Siesta Key Beach and many nice restaurants. We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Sarasota!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Siesta Key value hotel"
Nice hotel only 5 minute drive to Siesta Key area. Great breakfast included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and clean hotel!"
This hotel is very close to the beaches in Siesta Key (about 5 minutes). It is also close to restaurants (many within walking distance). The hotel was very clean and the service was great. Overall, the value of the hotel is fantastic. The only thing we were slightly unhappy with is the garbage trucks that come early in the mornings. Many of the rooms […] are facing the parking lot and we heard the garbage truck come in every morning. Overall, the value and location of the hotel outweigh this. I would definitely return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bathrooms not very clean. Lots of hair left in bathroom. Air conditioner system really loud. Hard to sleep with so much noise and system coming on and going off all night. Photos selling the hotel are masterful. Rooms are quite a bit smaller than they appear on the site. Lucky only two night stay. The room description indicated "pool side room" - true […] statement only in the fact we were on the same side of the hotel as the pool. Very clever marketing. Will not return.

"MEDIOCRE BUT NOT BAD"
I stayed at BW Siesta for a three day stay. It says Siesta Key but it is actually 4 miles or so from Siesta Bay. The area of the hotel itself is a traffice nightmare- I crossed the street once by foot and it was quite an adventure. But it is a quick drive to the beach at Siesta and 10 minute drive to Siesta town- a place with mediocre and horribly overpriced […] restaurants. It is a very nice town to walk around, however.The hotel was clean and the service was adequate. The desk staff was generally helpful- as long as they were not busy with other details. The breakfast buffet was good enough- they even had whole wheat bread! The fruit, however, was full of rinds and very unripe. The beds were too soft for me. Oh- one very important detail. The GARBAGE TRUCK came by every morning at about 7 am to empy garbage. You will wake up from this noise- guaranteed. If you want to be close to the beach this is an OK choice. But if you want to be nearer to downtown Sarasota- my preference next time- there are more convenient choices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
housekeeping was very inconsistent. too few clean towels, no bedding for pullout, someone else's hair in the bathroom area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great. Although it was on a busy street (albeit set back from the road) the traffic noise did not bother me in the least. Good restaurants and shopping in close walking distance. Bed was comfortable and had a nice selection of pillows. Breakfast was OK...had a big, but simple variety of items. The air conditioner was put to good use, […] but it was noisy (I do not have an AC at home, so I am not used to the noise) Also, because the room window was overlooking the outer (outdoor) hallway, I did not like having the curtains open because of privacy issues. But overall, it was a very comfortable place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If you are looking for a great place to stay, not far away from the beach (5 minute drive) and pay little bit less then beach front hotels - this is the place to be!! I would decifinately come back and stay here!!! Everything is clean , staff is great, bed are comfortable. Breakfast is tasty!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good if you get a poolside room"
If you get a poolside room, you should be pretty happy with this hotel. We had a room on the parking lot/street side. Early in the morning, a delivery truck and a garbage truck come to the restaurant that's backed up to the hotel's parking lot. If you're not a heavy sleeper, the trucks will wake you up. Our only complaints about the room itself are […] that the lamps are older (outlets don't always work in them) and the air conditioner cycles too often. Otherwise, it was very clean, the decor is tasteful, the TV is very nice. It's a good value for a spendy area to stay in. We had a rental car and drove to Siesta Public Beach (a couple miles away) nearly every day in the afternoon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"reasonable for the cost and good location"
The room was a little small but nice and adequate. The hotel was very clean and while there work was going on to improve the walkways. We didn't have time to swim but the pool looked great. Breakfast was quite good with hot eggs, sausage, gravy and bisquits. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave oven, LED tv.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for everyone"
I have stayed at this hotel many, many times over the past 3-4 years. It has always been friendly, clean, comfortable and the property is kept nice inside and out. Although it has changed names, the hotel has kept up with its quality and service. It is centrally located to everything, just a short ride to the beach, a short walk to the shops, restaurants […] and local pubs. I will continue to stay here for all of my visits to the Siesta Key area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was horrible. Staff was too busy flirting with each other. They put us in the wrong room. We asked for a later check out. Low and behold after they put us in the wrong room they didn't change the late check out either. Then we got a nasty call on Sunday that checkout was at 11Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"easy access to siesta key"
It ain't called the "gateway" for nothing -- it's right off the bridge from Siesta Beach. If you are a fussy traveler, and expect a 5 star hotel, this isn't your place. But they provide solid service and accomodations that are well worth the daily rate. The Staff is kind and helpful, the pool, while needing a few more chaise lounges, is a nice retreat. […] The rooms are clean and not so small that you feel crowded inside. The beds are of that soft nature that contemporary people seem to prefer. Lets face it, when was the last time you found a hotel with a truly firm mattress? The hotel is sited on the highway, so this is either an advantage or not, depending on your desires. Breakfast is included; the food is mediocre; but guests seem to put it away anyhow. One downside is that there is not enough seating in the breakfast room. A few outdoor tables placed in the adjoining courtyard would alleviate this, at least on any sunny day. All in all, it's always a pleasure to stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyable stay near America's # 1 beach!"
Check in was easy. Stairs needed to be better lit. Room was attractive, clean, had both microwave and fridge (no freezer compartment). Nice perks: popcorn, coffee, tea, cappuccino available in lobby 24 hours. 3 public computers available. Pool was clean, beautiful and very comfortably warm, even when air was in low 60's. Breakfast was very good -- nice […] choice of food, including nice fresh fruit, yogurt, waffles, eggs, sausage, egg burritos, etc. There seemed to be enough space to accommodate many guests. Very near Siesta Key Beach. Very nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
pleasantly surprised. staff was warm and welcoming, cookies were gone at 10pm when I arrived to check in, but they found a few in the back for me!above and beyond normal service.Breakfast was awesome! I ate twice as I didn't check out until 11.bed was comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Considering location close to Siesta Key, great place especially if family member has a place on the beach. Good, friendly service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there for one night on Friday waiting for one week condo rental that started Saturday. Very nice quiet place. Staff very friendly and breakfast was excellent. Would recommend to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Convenient Hotel"
Staff was perfect. Hotel is in the heart of Sarasota within the immediate proximity of Siesta Key. We were on vacation, but didn't want to spend a fortune on beach front. This hotel is comfortable, convenient and clean. Perfect alternative to overpriced upscale hotels. And use your savings to go have fun on your vacation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
