Stayed here for 2 nights,very small rooms and the bathroom didn't have enough room to swing a cat,noisy fan kept us awake all night too,the breakfast was awful,little choice and was just for the American clients. It does have a nice bar outside but beware the drinks are expensive. Wouldn't stay again.

We enjoyed our stay here, it was close to the beach and our family we were visiting. The room was clean & it was great having a microwave & fridge. We loved the heated pool & free cookies & popcorn. Also we didn't use this, but thought the complimentary shuttle service to beach / area restaurants was a good idea....

Hotel looks good from the outside, hidden behind Harry's Sports Bar. Decent landscaping with a very good pool and tiki bar. Check-in was uneventful. I like a hotel that I can enter the room from the outside, rather than a long corridor, unless I'm in an Urban area. This fit the bill. The room itself was satisfactory, but every area...

Stayed at this Best Western for a family celebration. We were not in the room a lot as there were different activities going on. We were on a group rate and it was close to the venues we were attending. Bed was very comfortable, internet was not good, staff wasn't real friendly but it as fine for what we needed.

I understand that a room needs to be held on a credit card but when our card was compromised, I figured it wouldn't be a problem to pay in cash...Little did I know that a hotel would NOT ACCEPT cash as a payment. VERY VERY frustrating and it was a fiasco trying to get in contact with my bank in...

SiestaHotelMgr, Owner at BEST WESTERN PLUS Siesta Key Gateway, responded to this review

Greetings pkperrine - Your review does not describe the full pre-payment policy instituted by well operated hotel properties many years ago, including this one, which I am certain the front desk explained. Although cash payment is always an option at check-out, a valid credit card must be presented at check-in that can be authorized to cover not only your entire...

We have stayed her twice as add on trips to a Disney vacation and had similar experiences both times. Rooms are on the smaller side but clean and well stocked, extra towels for our family of four were easily accessed. The beds were firm without being too hard and the A/C worked great during the blazing hot days of July....

From the moment we arrived, we were well received. We had read other reviews and decided to upgrade to a pool view. The room was large enough and everything worked, room was thoroughly cleaned every day. Pool was excellent ranging from 3'6" to 5' which was great for children and non swimmers. Plenty of chairs always available (and comfy). Pool...

The price and location are right. The staff was friendly, informative and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful, complete and delicious. We were attending an event at Harry's Sports Bar, which shares their parking lot with this BW, and location was paramount in importance. With a AAA discount the nightly rate was a bargain. The bedding left a lot to be...

One of the highlights of our brief stay, was the availability of free transportation to siesta key beach and all the restaurants on the island. It was a short trip, but so much better than having to drive and find a parking space. When we wanted to return to the hotel, just a short wait for our ride. And the...
