Stayed at the hotel for two nights when I was in town for a funeral. Rooms are small, bathroom tiny but clean. Layout was a little odd in the room. The Complimentary breakfast was wonderful and the free popcorn in the lobby was a nice touch. Never got to try the 4pm cookies.

We had a group of 35 people that stayed at this hotel for a wedding celebration. They were extremely accommodating to us and our needs while there. The breakfast was very good each morning, and the pool was nice, and we enjoyed the bar at the pool each day!! A real short walk to a bar and grill as well!!...

Best Western Plus On US 41 @ Stickney Point Rd. is convenient, clean, friendly and free rides to the beach!! Excellent staff, hot breakfast was on point. Only 1 negative was no BYOB at the pool, you must purchase adult bevs at their bar inside the pool. HIGHLY recommend this hotel for your visit to Siesta Key!!

Best Western Siesta Key is a great little getaway- a very short drive to Siesta Key Beach. Hotel has a great pool & music at night and a great pool bar. Rooms are comfortable, nothing extraordinary, but lots of conveniences like a fridge & a microwave oven. Morning breakfast is great with lots of options & a lovely breakfast room....

This was our second stay here and every bit as good as the first. The breakfast is really good and tea and coffee available 24/7 in the lobby free of charge. The pool area is excellent. The location is great with lots of restaurants within walking distance and a retail shopping centre just over the road. Our only disappointment was...
