Rooms very small, staff unaccomodating, find a different hotel. Internet horrible, no weather channel which is needed as an evacuee of a hurricane. No pets. Only good thing is that it's in a good location. WAY too much money for a "closet" with a curtain. Haave to squeeze by computer chair everytime you go to a sink or a bathroom.

Very good location. A little bit noisy for the rooms facing the front of hotel due to garbage trucks every morning and very early. Good breakfast and very nice pool area. Rooms are decent sized and clean.

They have popcorn, cookies and coffee available all day. The breakfast is top notch. The staff is very caring. there...

This hotel had an amazing location for being a chain restaurant near Siesta Key (and also close to downtown Sarasota). I was able to get an amazing rate (~$80/night) and wouldn't have been happy if I had paid more for it. The staff were all very kind and the rooms were comfortable, but again you are in a Best Western....

The hotel was perfect! The front desk was so nice, hotel was clean and the pool was perfect. Breakfast was tasty. The only thing bad was the ice machine on the 2nd floor didn't work, so we had to go to the 1st floor for ice. We had a great stay and when we go back we will stay there...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days while visiting Sarasota for our anniversary getaway. We were both very pleased with the hotel. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, pool was refreshing, and staff was friendly and helpful. Couldn't beat it for the price and the location. We are already planning to book again next year for another...
