Had to wait for someone to be able to check in. Never was able to check out so just left keys. Murphy bed & sofa bed were beyond uncomfortable & no room to walk in room with both out. No coffee refill for 2nd day. NEVER STAYING HERE again!!!

We are a couple in our 30s who heads to longboat to simply relax and chill on the beach. This is our second time to LBK, and last year we stayed at cabanna beach club. Both cabanna and The Beach are similar. We like that The Beach is a smaller condo unit (10). The grounds are very well maintained. The... More

Very relaxing... Not very many people... It was perfect for our honeymoon.. There is only 10 condos and our car was right in front of our condo.. Very relaxing... Not very many people... It was perfect for our honeymoon.. There is only 10 condos and our car was right in front of our condo..

We stayed here for one night mostly to check out Longboat Key because we had heard good things about this beach town. Room was clean. Murphy bed set up was poorly done. No way to watch TV in bed. TV screen was smaller than my laptop screen so not even visible from the couch. There is nowhere to put a... More

I would definitely recommend The Beach as the perfect vacation for anyone! The beach is beautiful and the sunsets are breath taking. We stayed in room 106 on the ground floor having the outside patio was great for morning coffee. The room has everything you would need and maid service daily. Access to the beach couldn't be any more convenient.... More

We stayed here last June for 4 nights. It was wonderful. We were looking for an uncrowded beach vacation and that is just what we got. The scenery is beautiful! We rented condo #225, it was nice to have the separate bedroom but it was a little cramped with our teenage daughter sleeping on the sofa bed. But when your... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in July. The hotel is located on beautiful Longboat key and is ocean front. We rented the 1 bedroom condo #223. It was very clean, up to date and the view was spectacular. The management is on site and very pleasant and helpful. Also there is a daily housekeeping service included in price.... More

The hotel is right on the beach was exactly what we wanted. The area is perfect. Not fancy but good for a weekend getaway. Awesome restaurants nearby not to be missed. Dry dock grills lobster roll was amazing!!

Came here for a 'stay-cation.' Was extremely happy with how clean the room was kept. This hotel is right on the beach. The beach is beautiful, and since it is a small place, it seems like you have the beach to yourself. The hotel includes chairs and umbrellas in both their pool and beach area. Also has full kitchens and... More

Clean, comfortable, self serve (love this after spending a week in hotels were we tipped for every bag lifted). Ground floor view obstructed by bushes, so if you are looking for ocean view, pick a second floor unit. Clean beds, good service. We knew the sofa bed/murphy bed conditions, so had no high expectations of comfort, beds are not more... More
