My friends and I reserved a room for two nights last weekend (4th of July). Though this a great location if you want to walk to the restaurants, bars & shops of Siesta key Village, this property has some issues they need to work out. The hotel property itself is not well maintained. When we checked in, we noticed trash and cigarette butts everywhere, empty beer bottles strewn about and left that way for the entire time we were there.
Our room also had very old stained furniture, ancient beds with cheap linens, and a completely rusted out sink. There was also a small pool, which was okay, but has no shaded areas. The nearest beach access is a short walk form the hotel, but the beack itself is not the greatest.
The better beach is the public beach which is a short drive away.
We stayed for one night in June. Sietsa Key has a great beach. But this hotel in not on the beach, you can't even see the water from the hotel.
We had to have 3 rooms. The 1st room was not cleaned. The front desk was nice. The 2nd room was nice, but after 2 hours when the temp in the room went from 80 to 81 we new the airconditioner was broken. Front desk still nice, gave us another room. This was horrible. The window air conditioner worked so my kids were happy. The bathroom was the worst, the floor tiles were missing and broken we hurt our feet. Then I went to take a shower, OMG, there were bugs in the shower and the liner had scum and hair on it.
I told the front desk as we were checking out, but I really don't think he cared. I would highly suggest you look for another hotel in Siesta Key.
Dislike this place
Hotel says beach resort.. You must drive to the beach. It is not on the beach. a/c loud, decor needs updating.. More for younger adults. Not for familys. I only recommend this hotel if you are desperate in need of a place to stay. paid $125. a nite.
STOP BEFORE YOU BOOK!!!!
We checked in on a Sat.. We had reservation for a week but checked out Monday morning. There were ants in the bathroom,the room was very loud all night, and limited hot water. We brought this to the attention when we check out they could have cared less.Save your money, not worth $200.00 a night.
What an awful room! We had a standard room across the road from the office....dark, small, NO ventilation, black mold in the caulking in the bathroom, black mold seeping down the wall from a vent in the bathroom, the front window lock was broken, peeling paint at the bottom of the walls. This place is very old....and should be torn down and rebuilt....don't know what the other rooms were like but ours was terrible....beds were old. We cut our stay short and got out of there.
The front office people were nice....we didn't say anything but should have.....you would think housekeeping would tell the owners about the condition of the rooms...if they didn't already know. No way we will ever come back!:(
I love the ambience of Siesta Key Village
I had reserved the cheapest room they had but since I'm a Gold Crown member it was upgraded to a suite. I loved the area. It is quiet but offers enough so that it is not dull. On my recommendation, my daughter went later in the month with a friend. They felt the same and, outside of the beach, never strayed more than six blocks for four days.
We stayed in the Siesta Beach for 1 night on 9th October. We decided to check out the jacuzzi suite and were not disappointed. Although the outside of the "bungalow" is not fantastic and offers no views, the inside more than makes up for this. The whole suite was very clean and the hotel is situated in an excellent position 2 minutes from Siesta Key Beach which is lovely. There are a few bars and restaurants in the area, but these do not detract from the peaceful setting.
Great Find on Florida's Gulf Coast
I visited the city of Sarasota in June,2001 for a wedding for a family friend. I was referred to an accomodation on Siesta Key, which was the Best Western on Ocean Boulevard. The service and staff was great and the beach was a short walk across the street. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the water was clear and it was shallow a good 100 feet out. Area had some lively bars and a nice breakfast at a restaurant on Ocean Boulevard near the hotel. I couldn't believe how beautiful the area was. You could spend the day at the beach or get a nice massage at the nearby Siesta Key Therapeutic Massage Center to relax. People in the area are great and it is the closest I've been to paradise here in our great country. You will enjoy the Siesta Key/Sarasota area. It's a can't miss!
A friend and I stayed at the Best Western on Siesta Key in July of 2002. The room we were in was located in the main building where the front desk is housed. The room was dingy, dark & the bathroom moldy. The topper came as I was taking a shower and had a giant palmetto bug keep me company - not the last I was to see in the room. The rec area is bland & the pool very small. The rooms around the pool did look nicer though. The only thing that saves this hotel is location. You're directly across the street from Siesta Beach - one of the best in the world.
Loved siesta beach!
Siesta beach was lovely. Very clean and a brilliant atmosphere! We had great weather which topped it off, but definatley one of the best beaches we have been too! The whole family had many great days out their during our holiday to Sarasota! Helen AND Hayley

Just a side note about "dog people" and "dog culture"... We have owned 3 dogs over the past 30 years. Until this most recent dog, Sammy, we just got a puppy, added it into the family mix and moved on. We had a dog, but we were not "dog people". I did not realize what this meant until this new dog. Since we live in Ohio, if you get a new puppy Feb 1 (stupid idea) you have to do extra things like shoveling snow ...
... a place that has more going on after 5. The south end, Bradenton Beach, has more motels, tourist bars, shops, etc. My guess is there is more going on there in the evening as well. We have been appreciating being able to walk to everything here but we may need to go elsewhere in the evening for some activity. Since it is dark by 6, the beach isn't an option. Shelling here is not Sanibel, but there is always something to find. I found a small, unbroken sand dollar this afternoon. ...
... that I got to this point in my life where I can afford to have this time in this place, and be healthy and able to enjoy it. Had dinner tonight out on the City Pier. Met a nice couple from Cincinnati and we traded jokes about how cold it was at home and how lucky we were to be here. Walking back down the pier we were joined for a few moments by a Great Blue Heron. Very cool ...
... moss growing over their skin, but they are very peaceful and graceful in their own way. We were lucky enough to find a mother and her calf and were close enough to touch, which was incredible. I'm not gonna lie the size was a little daunting but we were reassured they are herbivores! We also learnt that small people look super super cute in wetsuits and 30 week pregnant ladies look rubbish squeezed into them.
Our next stop was Sarasota mercifully not too ...
... Mona put Mom in her car and Renee put Bob and me in her boat. We would rendezvous at The Landing for lunch. The lake is Minnesota’s fifth largest, measuring 10 miles long and 24 miles wide; it contains 365 islands. Renee grew up here and she certainly knows her way around by water. I couldn’t remember when I last took a boat ride on a MN lake, but it felt invigorating to be on the water once again. ...
