The price and location are right. The staff was friendly, informative and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful, complete and delicious. We were attending an event at Harry's Sports Bar, which shares their parking lot with this BW, and location was paramount in importance. With a AAA discount the nightly rate was a bargain. The bedding left a lot to be...

One of the highlights of our brief stay, was the availability of free transportation to siesta key beach and all the restaurants on the island. It was a short trip, but so much better than having to drive and find a parking space. When we wanted to return to the hotel, just a short wait for our ride. And the...

I stayed overnight on business. I booked this directly and I benefited from a AAA (CAA) discount. This hotel is well located approximately a 10-min. car ride from Siesta Key Beach, 15 minutes from downtown Sarasota, and 20 minutes from Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, although the immediate area around the hotel is not so interesting. The room was clean and well equipped,...

Greetings MontrealMan49 - Thank you for your recent review and description of our location. Our immediate area, although on the mainland at the south bridge and just minutes from Siesta Beach, is populated by many restaurants and a shopping mall all accessible on foot. Possibly this would not be of interest to you but is a necessity for many of...

The Siesta Key Gateway is a pretty great hotel for the money. Good location, nice rooms, a very nice pool, cordial front desk, all of that. One odd thing: Towels. In our room we just got one each, and at the pool, not only were there few towels, they were too small and virtually threadbare. It's odd. The rest of...

Pricing is consistent with the quality of the facility. Good service and amenities. Would book again. Nice courtyard / garden / pool area with bar and snacks. Well set back away from the road. Facility and room were comfortable and quiet.

A nice comfortable hotel with nice friendly staff. Not as close to the beach as I thought but transport was available although the hotel said it was free felt obliged to tip. Nice pool and bar. Plenty of restaurants very close to the hotel. Would stay again

Awesome location close to everything, Harry's across the street is a great Bar/Grill! It was easy from booking to checkout. I don't recommend a room by the elevator as the room adjacent to it you could hear it ding loud into the room.

I had the opportunity to travel with friends to Siesta Key over the weekend. I live in Lakeland, Florida and they were in town visiting. My friend booked this hotel as they had stayed there previously. When we arrived, my friend's daughter asked if we could have a poolside room. We were given a room on the second floor just...
