"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!

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

"Convenience for us."

"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

"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
We had a great stay. Everyone was fantastic.Room was impecable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms very clean, walking distance to many great restaurants, shopping, and siesta beach. Breakfast was FABULOUS. Friendly staff and rates were reasonable. I will definately stay here again on my next trip to Sarasota.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could've Been Better"
It appears that the hotel is going through some updating which is a good thing. I was disappointed during my 2 night stay because my room was not cleaned and when I contacted the front desk about it they said the cleaning staff had left for the day. Also the breakfast staff was kinda unprofessional. Breakfast ended that day at 9:30am and right at 9:30 […] on the dot she announced to the guest in the room very loudly "BREAKFAST IS OVER AT 9:30" so the guest would leave the area so she could remove the food and clean up.

"Miserabke experence. Stay only if hard of hearing"
Incredibly noisy. We left a day early because it wa s so loud. Dumpster removal at 5 am from the mall right next door one morning. Hotel dumpsterbanging at 7 both days. Cops came to remove unruly guests one night at 3 am. We decided to waste the tgird prepaid day that we know would nit be refunded because e needed sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice accommodations. Continental breakfast was great. Fitness center was small but nice equipment. Very nice staff. Nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and welcoming, great value"
It was great. I would most definitely return. The only thing I found that could be improved for me but not necessarily some one else, the mattress was firm. Other than that I have nothing negative to say. I loved the design of the room. Price Included breakfast. One of the cleanest hotel's I have stayed at. Great location.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Horrible housekeeping service"
Our room was not cleaned for 2 days in a row even after we contacted housekeeping & the front desk 5 times over the 2 day period. I have stayed in Holiday Inns before & was very pleased with the service, but I would never stay in another Holiday Inn Express. We did not get what we had paid for.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Staying at Holiday Inn Express Siesta Key"
Hotel Staff were courteous and willing to help always.

I recently had to stay in sarasota and obtained a room through hotels.com. It was a king bed and very spacious. The best part was I got in late, and requested a late checkout which I got by joining their vip club. I felt the cost was a little high for what it was, but I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice and affordable for the value!!!"
My experience on this hotel was nice, I stayed 3 nights and the best thing I like was the breakfast buffet, i mean really really good you can save some money on that, the check in was fast and easy, the room look to me small but was nice and clean, the TV needs to be updated kind of old, the only bad thing was the bed wasn't to comfortable at least […] on that room 303 maybe the mattress needs to be changed but other than that the hotel is in good condition and good location close to 5 min driving to the beach and a walking distance to many stores and restaurants. Overall I really recomended good hotel!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rooms need help"
Ok, I decided to be risk adverse in my hotel choice. Well, little did I know, I took a risk. The hotel grounds and common areas were fine and well kept. However, the room was very dated, old, and not very clean. I was not comfortable in this room. The bedding was one of the worst I have experienced. The pillows were knotted balls. The bed felt lopsided. […] I would not stay there again. Sorry Holiday Inn Express :( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Friendly and quiet."
Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Good selection for breakfast and constantly replenished. Even though there were a lot of kids staying for a volleyball tournament, it was still quiet. Appreciated that. The only thing I could say in the negative is the hot tub's jets were not working well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Siesta Key's Holiday Inn"
I liked the location, very good. They lacked in cleaning, but it wasn't that bad, just a little dust. The hotel's quality was good and very comfortable, with a lot restaurants surrounding, publix and retails, very nice. I would recommend and definitively will go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
The front desk folks were all very helpful and polite. The breakfast was very good, with a good variety. The pool and hot tub were nice. Overall, a very nice visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
