We've been to the Rod and Reel in past years while on vacation on Anna Maria and could never understand the popularity of this place, other than the location and the pier. There was a fire in the kitchen awhile ago, so the place was remodeled and updated which was greatly needed. We decided to try it again after watching... More

We stayed here for just one night in February, waiting our weekly rental to open up. The rooms are updated, well appointed and clean. It's a small complex, definitely not a "resort", but it is directly on the water and for the price you can't beat it. Our room had a "double" bed, which could stand to be a queen,... More

Visited here December and we like to go fishing on the island. Hotel was clean and comfortable - all on ground floor so would suit those with mobility problems. Nice garden/court yard where you can sit out facing the sea. Our room had 2 double beds - very comfortable, small kitchen, TV and bathroom with shower. Spacious and comfortable. My... More

Even though we live in Sarasota (home of the world's best beaches!) we took a weekend to explore near-by Anna Maria Island. The entire island is totally laid back with 2 great piers, one the city pier and the other the Rod and Reel Pier (which I hightly recommend for their breakfasts and outstanding Mexican grouper:) Anyway, this little "resort"...

My wife and I had to come in town for a wedding and decided to stay 3 days at the Rod & Reel for a little getaway. The word "Resort" is a little misleading because it's really a motel. Yes not hotel, a motel. When you first pull up I thought my wife was going to kill me because it... More

The Rod and Reel Motel used to be a funky old motel at the end of Annia Maria Island by the fishing pier. Old fisherman stayed there. Now, The Rod and Reel Motel has a new coat of paint and is calling itself a "Resort". That would be fine if it actually were a resort not just cinder block rooms... More

We were at the Island for a Wedding and we were very lucky to of stumbled on the Rod and Reel Resort. From the Road side it can be a little different, But once you go inside it was Paradise. Just what we needed for a great get away. It would be a dream come true to own a place... More

This is a small motel in a great location. We rented the suite because it was the only room with a king size bed. All other rooms have full size beds ( no queen size in any rooms ). It's right next to a small pier where you can have the best grouper sandwiches. It is right on the water... More

We recently stayed, and found it to be over priced for what was offered. stayed 4 days, and found it to not the cleanest I have ever found. Walk out of the shower to find your feet dirty from floor. Found holes in walls in bath where the old towel rack use to be, drywall chipping away around the bath... More
