Let me start with front desk, very nice,very helpful and a rarity they know the hotel and the area. Really good hot breakfast, clean pool and hot tub, nice fire pit next to the bar, when you come back from a walk on the beach or dinner it's a great relaxing place to crash. They have free shuttle to everywhere...

I booked this room based on reviews and location. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the room. I originally booked a suite through their website, and ended up calling to switch my reservation and they gave me a lower grade room for the same price. We stayed in room 201 and I was disappointed in the cleanliness. The vent was gross...

Unpleasant front desk staff. Not helpful or friendly. Fantastic lounge area and staff! I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I did not find the free transportation to the beach to be very convenient.

On my reservation, I indicated we would be arriving about noon and would like an early check in. When we arrived - 11:30 - after an extremely early and long travel morning, we were NOT warmly greeted. Margaret at the front desk brusquely dismissed my early check in request with "check in is at 4." When I again indicated my...

The staff at this particular hotel was exceptional. They were attentive, accommodating, friendly, welcoming, and patient. More specifically, the culture of the hotel is evident in the dealings with their front desk staff. They consistently showed kindness, created joy, took ownership, and did more. I will seriously consider Best Western's in the future when compared to our most frequented Marriott...

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. I LOVED the location of the hotel and the hotel in general. It has a beautiful outdoor area with a pool, hot tub, and outdoor bar. The popcorn machine and cookies is a cute bonus and the outdoor bonfire pit is a nice touch as well....

Looking to stay near Siesta Key. Never stayed at a Best Western plus before. This place was very nice. Pool, hot tub, pool bar and breakfast were all great. Price was right and very close to Siesta Key. Would stay again.
