Very friendly staff . Clean and comfortable room.

Confortable bed and pillows, thick towels, good TV, clean bathroom with nice shower. Good breakfast included, Loved the automatic pancake maker! Hotel is nothing outstanding but just right. Would come back if I was visiting the area again.

We loved it all...

Check in was late by an hour, got into the room around 5:30. When asked, I was told the manager could not offer any compensation for late check in.

Bad speed bumps in parking lot.

The owner is very lucky they have friendly staff they made up for a noisy night we experience. The owner needs to consider to have security team atleast in the weekends. The front staff were efficient, polite and handled criticism professionally. The hotel is an outdated building it’s been renovated but it not the best. The breakfast was delicious and perfect start of your day.

Front desk night person went out of his way to get some chips and candy because the vending machines were not working. Made the kids happy. Will definitely stay there again

Everything was really good.

They were very helpful and amazing customer service.

No comment..

Pool area was great. Breakfast was unsatisfying. Suppose to get hot breakfast but had a bag breakfast 2of the 4 nights that we stayed. No room service but towel and garbage exchange and that didn’t get done 2of the 4 nights. We had to bring it to front desk and get our own before we went to bed. Best Western don’t tell you this when you book. The showers were either really really hot or cold. Water temp changes constantly. We got by but could have found better. But location was great and lots of fun stuff to do in Sarasota/siesta keys area! Great food and Beaches!

Cutting some slack because of staffing issues affecting everyone. Stayed for 7 nights, was happy for the hot breakfast available most days. . Beware the double speed bumps in the parking lot, they are excessively large. Short drive to everything, pool was nice. Shuttle service available to local beaches/shopping

Close to the beach and to stores and restaurants very convenient location enjoy my stay, staff friendly makes me feel at home

We had a poor experience elsewhere and came to stay at this location. Staff was helpful, room was clean, breakfast was great!
