This hotel was priced just right, it is not a fancy pants place, but it was adequate for me and my partner who traveled down to Sarasota to check out the Orioles, Siesta Key and grab some R&R. Its a bit dated, the room is decent sized and had everything you would need for a beach town hotel. The pool...

They have free shuttle to everywhere...

I drove to Sarasota with a friend who as going to a wedding at the Lido Beach Resort. At those prices, staying there was out of the question. My search on tripadvisor showed the Best Western to be more affordable and relatively close to Lido. Check in was easy. I did ask for restaurant suggestions and was pointed to the...

Everyone was most pleasant and helpful in anyway you needed them to be. The pool was very nice and clean and always plenty of towels for everyone. The room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable especially the pillows.

The Best Western Plus in Siesta Key provided a relaxing stay for us. We especially enjoyed the amenities offered - the popcorn, coffee, and cookies. The pool was very nice and had comfortable lounges. We also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast (though it would have been nice to have skim milk in the morning).

Had a king room here for a Saturday night stay. The room was clean and the bed comfortable enough. Pool was fantastic. Warm water and some comfortable chairs. Free popcorn was fun. Breakfast was what you would expect. Open buffet.

Great location. Clean and comfortable. Most staff very friendly. Close to beach however traffic is very intense. Many nearby shops and restaurants. Park on the backside to avoid a nearby dumpster rotten food smell from the restaurant. Noisy early morning when garbage truck comes through almost daily at 5:30am. Pool side rooms may be quieter.
