Great location to drive to beaches. Near several good restaurants in walking distance. Easy to locate by car, not far from airport. Desk ervice was friendly. The free breakfast had several decent choices of hot or cold food and beverages.

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...

Hotel is only about 1.5 miles from the beach but it takes about 15 minutes to get there due to traffic. First room we had was older and the air conditioning and fridge did not work. Told staff and was moved to a better room.

This property, rooms and service were great. The double beds leave a lot to be desired in comfort and size. We were visiting with friends that were from out of state so we only stayed one night. If the stay would have been longer I would have moved to another hotel for this reason alone.

The hotel is decent in regards to value and location. Breakfast was OK...only a few drive to the beach. Some of the hotel staff could be a little more friendly, however some were terrific. The only real problem we had was they chose to close the pool bar and seating around it to host a private party...My family and I...

We stayed for 3 nights at Siesta Gateway. We had issues with our first room but we're sorted by helpful staff. Good value for money. Clea n, decent pool and ok breakfast. In a busy location. No advantage in poolside.

Our stay was great-We liked the location-it was easy to go to Venice or Sarasota on 41 & close to Siesta Key beach & Village. The breakfast was very good every morning. The room was clean & well taken care of each day by the staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel. There were plenty of restaurants close by or...

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...

“Rooms were cleancand spacious. The executive suite was excellent for a family of four. The bathroom with the shower was hard to manuiver because it was so small. The door barely moved in to pass the toilet! Your have to squeeze around the toilet to get in or out. The bath towels were white & fluffy”
