Just before the bridge to Siesta Key is a surprisigly peaceful piece of paradise! It's close to shopping if you forgot anything or need anything, and a mile from the island beach!! They also provide a free shuttle to the island, unless you prefer to walk. We absolutely loved it and we are definately going back! Staff was great and...

Clean hotel, decent breakfast, very small rooms with too soft mattresses. No double queens, small. Breakfast good, staff present and helpful. Would have thrown extra 75-100 to stay closer to St Armands or beach to compensate for soft beds and tiny room. Can't recommend tho we stay at Best Western a lot, won't be back to this one.

Staff was friendly at check-in. Room was on 4th floor farthest from desk. Wi if did not work and front desk walked us through and it would stay connected only for a few seconds. Gave up on it. First hotel I ever came across the US that did not have any type of weather channel for travelers. Breakfast was good...

We had a great stay at this BW. Room was nice and nice place in general. Great location! Close to the beach and close to plenty of restaurants. Staff was helpful and bartender made sure we saved a little money by using coupon that was given to us.

Parking is great and the staff was friendly for the most part. The breakfast buffet is good. The room was smaller than I had expected for a King. The sink area is in the room so not much privacy and the counter storage is minimal. The toilet & shower/bath are in the bathroom area without a sink. The front door...

My 7 year old daughter loved this place. Although we were only minutes from Siesta Key she opted to spend most of her time in the pool. The poolside bar was a nice perk for snacks and drinks. The popcorn in the lobby was also a big hit...it's the little things that sometimes make the biggest impressions. The breakfast was...

Only stayed one night at this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Not fancy but very well maintained and comfortable. The bathroom area was a bit small for 2 people but not a huge issue.

The BW Siesta Key is a fine hotel, but be warned it is structured like a motel, in that the rooms face outward, either toward the parking lot (in the front) or toward to pool area (in the back). This wasn't an issue for me, personally, but if you are looking for a more traditional, interior corridor type building this...
