Best Western Plus Siesta Key Gateway

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We now stay at this gem of a hotel prior to spending 2 weeks in a rented house with relatives. A great way to get over jet lag, unwind and just kick back for a few days. Hotel is clean, comfortable and run by a fantastic group of helpful and efficient personnel. Good breakfast, great pool and tiki bar (kudos to Katrina who runs it), close to Siesta Key and numerous restaurants. Give it a try!

Our son recently moved to Sarsota. We go down every couple of months to visit and have stayed about six times now at the Siesta Key Best Western. It is VERY well located. On the main highway, and also on the main entrance to the beach road going to Siesta Key. The pool and hot tub are always well maintained, and there is a nice snack bar. Laundry service is available also. It is a Very Nice HOtel for the price & we always return.

We went for a wedding on Siesta Key. All the hotels/condos on the key were going to cost us around 250$ to 300$. We booked using priceline for 70$ a night. I was a clean room, a little dated but good for the value. It was a perfect location for access to the key and all the shops. We used Jonny's free beach rides during our stay and it was perfect. We didn't need to worry about finding parking and we could both have a few drinks.

Room Tip: Use jonny's free beach rides! It's a tip only service and they are fast and friendly.

We were very pleased with our stay. The staff made everything easy. From printing out boarding passes, to accommodating our request for some beach chairs to bring to the nearby beach. The hotel has a good location, near stores and restaurants and close to the beaches. This is our second visit and we will return.

By and large I agree with most of the recent reports. This is a good value hotel, in a great location - with loads of services close by. The Ritz Carlton it ain't - but it is not pretending to be. Close to Siesta Key beach and only 6 miles off I75. Try the Red Lobster close by.

Room Tip: Overlookinghe pool should be good - although if busy could be noisy

This is an older hotel with room doors that open to the outside, but it is nicely maintained and still an attractive-looking hotel. The front desk was very fast at check-in and check-out, and the lobby area, which contains a breakfast buffet area is pleasant. The room we had on the third floor was clean and we had no concerns, but it is clear that the bathroom area will eventually need remodeling.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before checking in.
