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

This is what you would consider an extremely basic hotel for the prices in question. I would not recommend, or ever stay here again. Hotel staff was less than helpful and in no way friendly. Need towels? Not possible. Shower won’t drain? Don’t care. And the very very best part was - not a SINGLE employee was wearing a face mask, despite mandatory signs posted on every door. This was the most mortifying to me. Health department needs to shut this place down.

3 min drive to Siesta key, great location, quiet, safe.

Breakfast was really good! And the pool bar and games outside with the DJ were really fun! Beds were also comfy and shuttle to the beach was amazing too

Cleaning pool and Hot tub in the middle of the day which requires everyone out of the pool or hot tub Speed bumps are horrendous

The family suite was great! This is my second time staying here in a few weeks. Love being greeted by Brittany! What an asset to the Best Western! Efficient and friendly. My only suggestion would be more towels and shampoo/condi when it is known how many r in a room.

The Hotel is very nice. Nice Pool and a very friendly Staff. I would go back in this Hotel the next time.

This property was excellent in every way! Rooms a bit tight, but the staff and extras make up for it.

Cool little property that I was not expecting with amenities and friendly staff!

Love the pool and location of the hotel to the beach and anywhere else in Sarasota

out dated / but close to many places to eat and close to the beach

The staff was great. My kids loved the pool area. Great location to get to siesta beach or restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

We apologize for your experience. There are two signs posted at the front desk at all times the describe how a stay over guest can obtain housekeeping services. During check-in every guest is directed to review and/or take a picture of a sign. Stay over cleaning is an exchange service only due to Covid-19. Guests must be present in their room for the exchange to occur since housekeeping is not entering stay over rooms unless in-room service has been specifically requested. At 2pm guests can bring their dirty towels to the front desk to exchange them for clean towels. The front desk can provide a variety of toiletries as well. Maintenance staff is available most of the day but not 24 hours a day. When maintenance is on property, they are happy to address a variety of situations. Staff will provide guests with a room move (when available) or have maintenance go to the guest's room on the next business day when maintenance is not on property. Florida does not have any mask mandates at this time. Masks are not required to be worn outdoors. Staff are not going to confront guests who forget to wear their mask while they are in the lobby. The signs on the door refer the lobby and the fitness center. All other areas of the property are outdoors and therefore masks are not required. Whenever staff and guests are interacting at the front desk the staff wear masks.
