“BEST SERVICE AND GREAT DEAL!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

After spending a splendid day on the Siesta Beach, it was great to relax in the over sized hot tub, and take a refreshing shower with a great shower spout. Along the side of the pool, there is a bar area open on the weekends, they serve amazing hot dogs, snacks and alcoholic beverages, and sodas for the whole family! The towels were always clean and soft, the beds were comfortable and satisfying to my sleeping needs. The service was absolutely excellent, well-dressed and catered to our EVERY SINGLE need. Hot, fresh breakfast served daily and 24/7 cappuccinos, coffee, hot chocolate, and freshly popped pop corn. The cookie batch comes out at 4 p.m. so get 'em while their hot! All in all, great people, calm city, and excellent accommodations. My family will definitely come here again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the other side of the pool are quiet...the pool gets pretty crowded especially on the weeke...

Clean hotel with a short drive to siesta key.Breakfast is good with a few hot items, enough items to get you through to lunch. I did not like the beds. Breakfast host is not pleasant, so do not attempt to speak with her about anything. A lot of eateries near by as well as target and publix. Air conditioning worked well in my room. Certain times of year this hotel is overpriced. But, for the location and cleanliness this is a good stay. Plus beachfront is a lot more expensive.

The Bed and the flat screen TV was a treat after spending the day at Siesta Key Beach. The King size bed was extremely comfortable and clean. I have no complaints about the room or the complimentary hot buffet breakfast. Needless to say after breakfast; I ended up back in bed before check out. My only complaint is that it is further from the beach than I thought; but that isn't to blame the hotel. I just didn't do my research. I would stay here again for a short getaway.

We spent 3 mights in this hotel early August 2013. we were used to go to BW Plus and usually we wer pretty satisfied. This one is a pure nightmare. It looks like there's only 1 staff working! No concierge, no staff, nothing at all. The breakfast is everything you can imagine but not a breakfast (paper plates, awful tea, ...). If you want to get a wi-fi connexion, forget about it, it does not work on tablets or smart phones. A/C in rooms is noisy. All in all, probably the worst BW Plus we ever been to.

Living 1.5 hours away from this area (Clearwater) we visit Siesta Key often, best beach we have ever seen in Florida or the Caribbean. Hotels prices in Siesta Key are very high, last time we stayed on Turtle Beach at price of over 250.00/night. This hotel was way above what we expected! Clean and spacious room, microwave and refrigerator if needed. Large pool area, now also with a pool bar. Hotel staff was great! Nice breakfast included and best of all very close to the best beach in USA! We spend most of our time enjoing the beach iand not staying in our hotel room but if we had to do that in the event of rain etc. it was a very pleasant place to stay! Will definitely return again!

Room Tip: Stayed on 4th floor, not pool side. Think it may be quieter here.

The pictures on their website are COMPLETELY misleading and this place is ENTIRELY overpriced! This facility reminded me more of a low quality SUPER 8 or MOTEL 6 instead of a Best Western Plus! Yes, the rooms were "livable"; however, they are definitely NOT WORTH $100+ per night price tag. Breakfast area is OVERCROWDED and the selection is EXTREMELY LIMITED and not the greatest tasting.

Thank you for writing a review and we are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. The pictures on our website are actual photos of our hotel guest rooms and public areas taken very recently and they are representative of what we have to offer. Our complimentary breakfast does get crowded from time to time which is why we extend breakfast hours on the weekends from 6:30 - 10 AM. Our inside seating accommodates over 70 guests and outside pool seating accommodates some 25 more. This space allocation generally handles the number of guests staying with us at one time. We do hope that you will consider us again in the future.

We stayed two nights at the end of July. The property is well maintained. The hotel/rooms are very clean. The breakfast was good and sufficient. I liked the location close to good restaurants, grocery stores , gas stations. The public beach of Siesta Key was about 10 minute drive. If you like to walk it wouldn't be a bad walk either. Over all I felt like I received good value at this property. The staff were friendly and helpful.
