Great rooms, great breakfast. A five minute drive to the best beach in the USA. Front desk staff is courteous and helpful. Coffe avaiable all day, with pop corn, and cookies. Good pool, but who wants to stay in the pool, with Crescent beach a few minutes away?

We had a terrific stay at the Best Western Plus Gateway in Sarasota. Staying for 2 days we had access within walking distance of many fine restaurants; sports bars; and businesses. Beautiful pool and bar area outside and well furnished. Hope to return.

We didn't stay here after all. When we arrived at 2:00 the desk informed us the room wasn't ready and wouldn't be until after 4:00. The hotel is on a major road in a rather industrial area so there's not much to do while waiting for your room. This isn't in the beach area of Sarasota and there's no water...

Good location with plenty of eating options within walking distance. Comfortable room and spotlessly clean. The reception staff were very helpful, as was Katrina at the poolside bar. Nice simple and plenty of choice breakfast. All in all a very nice place to stay.

Nice stay, nice room, good prices, especially for the location of how close to Siesta Key. Pool was very well maintained. Price included breakfast which was pretty good. This hotel was a very good value.

My wife and I stayed here for five nights the first part of May 2017. Overall it was a good experience. Above I gave this B/W a 4 of 5 rating but 3 1/2 stars out of 5 would be a little more accurate. The location is great. Lots to do close by. Restaurants that are near and access to...

We needed a place to stay for a family wedding. It was just the 2 of us so instead of renting a condo, we opted for BWSiesta Key Gateway. Loved the varied hot breakfast each morning. The staff is great including maintenance, front desk, outdoor bar & the breakfast cook.
