Greetings CrSmith214 - Thank you for your recent review of our hotel property. We are delighted that you were able to enjoy our beautiful pool, hot tub and poolside bar and grill.

Great staff, beautiful pool area. Breakfast was good with cookies at 4:00pm. Coffee served all day and popcorn was a nice touch. Location was perfect for all beaches, restaurants, and sightseeing adventures. Would highly recommend this property. Harry's Bar & Grill on the same premises. Awesome food!!!

When I first saw this place online I thought it was a newer hotel but, once I got there I could tell that it was older than I originally thought. It has undergone a few renovations in its time and has been kept up quite well! I was in room 407 on the top floor and was quite pleased when...

Greetings Adam S - Thank you for your most recent review and the honest overview of our property. Although we take pride in knowing that our online pictures, which are monitored and updated often, reflect everything about the property, it is only when you visit a location physically that your opinion can be formed. We are grateful that we had...

Easy access, surprisingly soft absorbent bath towels. I know that sounds funny but it was true. Not the normal "sandpaper" bath towels in most hotels. The location was good and there is a Sports Bar/ Restaurant connecting to the property via the parking lot which had good food and entertainment. Live band outside and sports TV inside.

Little bit pricey for this hotel. Checkin went smooth and staff were very friendly and helpful. . Kinda dated, especially the bath. Room was okay and bed was not bad. Everything was clean. Nice area here with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Breakfast included and was okay but like most others. Everyone was enjoying it. We normally don't stay...

This motel is conveniently located next to Stickney Point road in such a way that you don't have to negotiate the intersection with Rt 41. You can sneak out a back road to Stickney Point.

We stay in a condo in Siesta Key Florida for the winter. We like to get down early before the condo is ready for us and we always stay at the Best Western Plus. The people are nice, we can walk to several restaurants, the pool and outdoor bar are very nice.
