Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff was extremely friendly, check-in and check -out were done quickly and efficiently. The rooms were extremely clean given the fact that it as older building. I have stayed at Best Western throughout the state and they have all been an excellent experience.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 March 2017

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.

This hotel is close to the beach, but it's not easy to get to due to traffic. The hotel is by today's standards average. Rooms were clean, but small and out dated. Breakfast was poor, the pool looked nice, but we never used it. Staff was friendly.

Absolutely loved this Best Western Plus. We have stayed at the Best Western Plus in Brooklyn, NY and found this hotel in Sarasota to be just as wonderful. Clean room, very quiet, comfortable beds, awesome breakfast, great location, and beautiful landscaping. So close to the beach and great restaurants nearby. Felt very safe as well and would definitely stay again.

Great location to drive to beaches. Near several good restaurants in walking distance. Easy to locate by car, not far from airport. Desk ervice was friendly. The free breakfast had several decent choices of hot or cold food and beverages.

Hotel is only about 1.5 miles from the beach but it takes about 15 minutes to get there due to traffic. First room we had was older and the air conditioning and fridge did not work. Told staff and was moved to a better room.

This property, rooms and service were great. The double beds leave a lot to be desired in comfort and size. We were visiting with friends that were from out of state so we only stayed one night. If the stay would have been longer I would have moved to another hotel for this reason alone.

The hotel is decent in regards to value and location. Breakfast was OK...only a few drive to the beach. Some of the hotel staff could be a little more friendly, however some were terrific. The only real problem we had was they chose to close the pool bar and seating around it to host a private party...My family and I...

We stayed for 3 nights at Siesta Gateway. We had issues with our first room but we're sorted by helpful staff. Good value for money. Clea n, decent pool and ok breakfast. In a busy location. No advantage in poolside.

“Loved being on the top floor.”

“Rooms were cleancand spacious. The executive suite was excellent for a family of four. The bathroom with the shower was hard to manuiver because it was so small. The door barely moved in to pass the toilet! Your have to squeeze around the toilet to get in or out. The bath towels were white & fluffy”
