If you are hard to please, and want a motel room that is worth well over a $100 or more per night, spend a lot more money and find a more upscale motel! As with most Red Roof Inns, there are no frills like exercise rooms or serious hot breakfasts. They do have 39" TV's, refrig and microwaves, and coffee... More

Given this location was recently rebranded as a Red Roof Inn, decided to stay on our trip to Florida. When you enter, you are greeted by a friendly Red Roof Inn member. The location is beautiful along the river and offers plenty of nice views while walking our dog. Then you enter the room - ugh! The room was clean... More

Was going to another destination and had a last minute change. I booked this not knowing the property when I was looking, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. I'm fond our room to be extremely clean, the staff more than helpful and the location worked perfect for us. I would never hesitate to return to this property. I have... More

I'm trying to think of something positive to say about this hotel. Ah, OK. PET-FRIENDLY. Normally when traveling, we have out dog with us and stay at La Quinta. We wanted to stay in a different part of town this trip to Bradenton and possibly save a few bucks in the process. It wound up costing us way more. First,... More

The GuestHouse Inn is a pleasant and enjoyable facility, and we have no major criticisms of our experience as guests there. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy, the staff was generally enjoyable and competent, and the room was just fine. Minor issues included an electronic door key that stopped working after the first day, useless Wi-Fi, a remarkable and... More

For lack of anything else, my family and I reserved a room at the Guest House. The best thing I can say is that the wifi was strong and the carpet was new, everything else was weak and worn. That, however, is not my biggest problem with the Guest House; the fact that upon check in, they scanned both my... More
