We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on the Gulf side that had such an amazing floor-to-ceiling view of the beach. We opened the sliders so that we could hear the waves crashing from our (very comfortable) bed. The unit had a spacious balcony, and we cooked dinner in the full kitchen. All in all, the WannaB Inn offers a... More

This is a nice, recently renovated art deco "cottage rental style" resort. Regardless of how long you are staying you get 4 towels and 4 wash cloths. After that you either wash them, reuse them, or bring additional towels of your own for the duration of your stay. There are laundry facilities on the grounds. They are suite style rooms... More

The resort is on pristine Manasota Key. Our group stayed in room 127 that was smack dab on the Gulf of Mexico. Our room was spacious (2 br 1 bath) and the view was extraordinary. We saw porpoises frolicking in the water several times, and the beach is beautiful. We appreciated the heated pool that is located near all of... More

Thank you for writing about your stay at the wannaB inn. Staying on the beach really is magical. It sounds like you really took advantage of what is here - so glad you enjoyed fishing off the docks and exploring Stump Pass State Park. We're sure you had some great sunsets while here. We look forward to having you back... More

The Wannabe Inn may be an older facility, but it's been nicely renovated and refreshed. It's location is great if you love the beach. Good restaurants close by; boats, kayaks and jet skis for rent nearby too. Will look forward to our next stay.

We stumbled upon the WannaB online and never having been to Englewood were pleasantly surprised. We had a clean recently refurbished room right on the beach next to the state park. Sunsets from the balcony and good restaurants just a short drive. We intend on coming back.

We stayed here for a few days to celebrate our first anniversary. We stayed at the Sand Dollar, third floor, one bedroom apartment with a private balcony overlooking the beach and ocean.

Stayed at WannaB Inn and found the property updated and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. Offered discount when we told them we were there staying there and had family on the Key. The weather was great and we had a very relaxing time.

It did have the most comfortable bed I've experienced at a motel in a long time but was very short on amenities. Very few cooking tools, dishes, glasses, etc. no garbage disposal. 2 small soaps. No counter space, drain rack, dishwashing soap. Spartan furniture. No reading lights by bed. Broken clock. A very minimalist operation.

We have been visiting Weston's for over 25 years and are never disappointed, so much so we are going again this weekend. The rooms are always clean and well stocked. The sunsets are awesome and you can't beat the shelling.
