Positive Reviews

Close to Shopping and Restaurants

There is an abundance of highly-rated restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Seafood, Italian, sandwiches and baked goods are just a few of the options you will find nearby. There are also numerous bars, pubs and boutique shops to explore.

Nice Pool Area

Guests love the hotel's pool area. You may enjoy a rejuvenating swim or simply relax in the hot tub, then stop off at the Sand Dollar Pool Bar for a nice selection of cocktails, frozen drinks, beer and snacks. Guests report that the pool area is well-maintained and kept in good shape.

Clean and Welcoming

Most found the hotel to be very clean and pleasant throughout their stay. The guestrooms are generally spotless and are nicely decorated, and the in-room refrigerator and microwave make it easy to store and reheat snacks and leftovers. The complimentary breakfast is also well-reviewed and features a solid selection of hot and cold items.

Negative Reviews

Beach Traffic

Siesta Key is connected to the mainland by a system of bridges, and especially during peak seasons these bridges are overwhelmed with traffic. You may end up waiting as much as 30 minutes to make it across the bridge. Try taking advantage of the hotel's complimentary shuttle service - at least this way you will be able to skip the tedious hunt for a parking spot.

Uncomfortable Beds

A few guests complained that the beds were saggy and not particularly comfortable. Keep this in mind, especially if you are prone to back problems.

Rooms Rather Small

Several guests noted that they were somewhat disappointed in the size of the guestrooms, which they believed were not as large as other Best Westerns. While you should find the accommodations comfortable enough for three or fewer people, this might become a problem if you have extra guests in your room.
