Best Western Plus Siesta Key Gateway

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice pool area, helpful staff, good breakfast buffet, and clean room. Would book again.

Basically, I only slept at the hotel; happily, I can report the air-conditioner worked well, the mattress was firm, the room clean and quiet.

great room, close to many shopping malls and restaurants. Ease of access to highways to visit other areas.

Comforters they provided must have been used for years and years. Threads all over the comforter was coming out with knots that was roughing.. i had to remove the comforter from bed to sleep. Worst experience.

This should be listed as a MOTEL..not a HOTEL. This is not a hotel. It is a MOTEL It was extremely noisy. We heard all traffic as the hotel sits on a thoroughfare road. My husband and I were only there 2 days and packed very minimal. Only soap was offered..no shampoo or anything else. The garbage truck came on Monday morning bright and early. It sounded like it was right outside our door. The hotel had a musty smell as if it's very old or holds moisture. Our rental car had a flat tire the first morning. Three of the four valve stem caps were missing. I'm not blaming anyone, but there were signs posted all over the parking lot that the hotel assumes no responsibility to vehicles. Makes me wonder.

Comfortable clean room Awesome breakfast Quiet ........ All won all all all

Loved mostly everything about this hotel. Great location, great amenities, great cust svc! Great location with preferred service to Johnny's free ride (just pay for tips); Clean pool/hot tub area - love the tiki bar and live music for happy hour. Breakfast is good. People that work there really go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Rooms are a little outdated but love having the fridge, microwave, iron and hair dryer

We stayed here in order to take a look around Sarasota. Although we didn't swim, we did have drinks by the pool - very pleasant. Decent breakfast. The only objection I would have is that the sink is outside the bathroom door and if one person is sleeping, they will be woken up by the water running, since it is so close to the bedroom. Would definitely stay here again.

Clean, comfortable, staff friendly, breakfast very nice, not overly expensive.

The hotel is convenient but lacking in maintenance. The ice machine on my floor didn't work 3 days out of 5; had to go to another floor. The bathroom had a light bulb out that never got replaced. The TV remove was annoying; you had to work very hard to change channel or even to turn it on. The hotel is tired. It needs to be overhauled and brought up to modern standards. Free breakfast was marginal, A pancake machine instead of the normal waffle machine. Some mornings there was no meat offered and virtually no pastries but donut holes.

I have 2 complaints - and they are not really bad. 1 - the lighting is not the greatest in the room and 2 - there should be a few more drawers. Otherwise how can you complain? Easy check in and out. Breakfast every morning. Fresh popcorn throughout the afternoon and evening and fresh baked cookies at 4 each day. You can get really spoiled.

The hotel had many wonderful attributes - among those being spacious, comfortable rooms, a gym with decent equipment, good location, swimming pool, excellent free breakfast with great variety and a nice, accommodating staff. I was very pleased with my stay there and would highly recommend it to others.

Real nice Hotel, very close to the Beach. Breakfast Awsome

The hotel had the perfect location, close to everything. The hotel was okay and so was the breakfast.

The bed was clean and the mattress was wonderful. I couldn't hear anything outside of my room and the air conditioner was working wonderfully. Good water pressure in the shower and I could even walk barefoot on the carpet!

The location of the hotel was a little far from the beach I though for the value but there was shopping and ample restaurants around. The breakfast in the morning was better than most and the service there was friendly. The rooms were not to big but clean and towels were also clean.

Close to everything. Good breakfast each morning. Pool was nice size. Plenty of seating and hot tub was a noce touch. Fireplace outside was neat and relaxing after a fun filled day out in the town.

Easy transportation to the beautiful Siesta Key beach. Nice pool and new casual pool bar (if you get tired of the beach). Extensive continental breakfast and clean comfortable rooms. A great value for this location.

Great,friendly and easy access to movies, mall beaches and any type Restaurant. Heated pool for February, comfortable bed. Actually stayed at this hotel when it was the holiday Inn express for 6 years and now that it's the best western 2 years, just love it.

My daughter and I stayed here twice for her swim meets. Excellent location - close to the YMCA, beaches, downtown, mall. Restaurant/Publix right next door. Rooms were clean, breakfast was great, breakfast area was large and clean. Loved the pool and spa.

Thank you for completing a review regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. All matters that you stated in your review have been addressed regarding your housekeeping issues. However regarding the statement about the signs in the parking lot, these are in place due to the shared lot with the restaurant out front. They are not there because we condone vandalism of our guest's vehicles.
