Due to a delayed flight we arrived in the middle of the night and ended up with an extra person that was to be dropped off elsewhere but due to the hour we couldn't. Maurice was very helpful in getting us in to a more comfortable room and even brought a rollaway up to us. He was awesome - friendly and very welcoming! He made our experience much better. Thanks Maurice!

Michelle at the front desk was very helpful. Even with a slight issue with an employee calling in at the last minute the breakfast went smoothly and was as good as the day before.
The only negative thing was that we couldn't stay longer. Would definitely stay here again.

This Best Western PLUS in Siesta Key was in the midst of everything to do in that area. Among the places we visited were Historic Spanish Point, Marie Selby Gardens, Ringling Bros Estate, Anna Maria Island and much more. Our hotel was comfortable and breakfast made a great start to every day.

From check-in to check-out our experience was great! The hotel and guest rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool was fabulous! Breakfast was quit extensive and very yummy. This hotel was in close proximity to Siesta Key Beach and there was nice shopping right across the streetfrom the hotel. Would definitely return.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at this hotel. We really appreciated the helpful staff, the free breakfast, complimentary cookies and popcorn in the afternoon. The hot chocolate was delicious! (I didn't think I'd drink hot choc in FL, but it was too good to pass up!) We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. Our room was a little small but clean when we arrived. Beds were comfy and Housekeeping left a little to be desired. Floors weren't cleaned and many days no extra shampoo or conditioner was left for us. We used the coin laundry facilities.
The location of the hotel is very handy to the beach (1/2 mile away) and many good restaurants. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot. It was quiet in spite of that. I think pretty...

Stayed here for 1 night. Easy access to a couple of different places to eat . The heated outdoor pool was a definate plus in January. The breakfast buffet was wonderfull with plenty of food options, hot and cold. The room was decorated nicely. Quiet stay, alot of older folks and families while we were there,I would definatley stay there again.

Room Tip: I would probably get a room closer to the pool if you go during the winter months. It's a cold w...

Warm popcorn , coffee, hot chocolate, tea, fruit, yogurt & more available all the time. The pool area looked nice, but unfortunately it was cold & rainy .
