All things Siesta Key. Stories, news, and event information about Sarasota, Florida's beautiful beach.
Don’t Overpay for Pricey Resorts
When traveling to a new area, on vacation, business, or other events, it’s important to consider where you’ll stay while you’re there. If the point of your trip is to get away from it all and spending as much time relaxing as possible, a resort might be the answer. Resorts provide many amenities right at your fingertips, saving you the effort of getting out and about.
However, if you’re seeking to explore a new region, sightsee, and generally learn more about the local area, you just might find that a hotel suits your needs perfectly, for a fraction of the price. The Best Western Siesta Key is a perfect example of a hotel that accommodates your desire to roam, explore, and enjoy the beautiful Florida Gulf Coast. Read on to learn more about the reasons you may choose a hotel over a resort sometimes.
Too Many Reasons to Get Out and About
In an area like Sarasota and Siesta Key, there are simply too many activities and attractions drawing you outdoors and into the surrounding area for us to pin you down inside! The beach is likely calling your name, and we offer free transit to and from the beaches to help you avoid parking issues. Besides beachside fun like volleyball, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling, an outing on a fishing boat or sunset sailboat will make your day on the water well worth your time and energy. When you pay more for a sprawling resort, you tend to feel an obligation to take advantage of the amenities provided. This sense of obligation may anchor you to the building or campus instead of freeing you to head to the great outdoors and explore the coast for yourself.
Too Many Great Eateries
One draw for resorts is the small kitchen amenities provided within the room. Often, resort lodgings come equipped with everything you need to cook meals on the regular during your stay. However, in Siesta Key and Sarasota, we have more great restaurants with eclectic menus than anywhere around. From fresh local seafood to authentic French, Italian and Caribbean cuisine, you can enjoy delicious treats you won’t find elsewhere. The money you save by choosing a hotel over a resort could be spent experiencing some amazing culinary treats- plus you won’t have to do dishes!
Too Many Other things to Spend your Extra Cash on
When you spend your vacation funds on a big resort, most of your money is spent, forcing you to feel the need to stay put. However, when you budget for a hotel, the money you save on lodging becomes available for sightseeing and enjoying the area. Museum entrance fees, great shopping, golfing, renting a boat, jet ski or kayak for the day, or taking in a show at one of our many local theatres are awesome ways to enjoy the area in its entirety. You’ll get to wholly experience Sarasota and Siesta Key without feeling like you’re neglecting a big investment.
The beauty and unique serenity of Siesta Key and Sarasota are calling you! Answer the call by getting out and about in and around the area. There is so much to do and see, you won’t want to be tied down to just one place while you’re here. The local experts at Best Western Siesta Key will gladly help you find the perfect excursions for your hobbies, tastes, and interests. Stop in to drop off your belongings then head out to the adventures that await!
