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

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

My family stayed at The Beach on Longboat Key this past month. We had a small issue after our first night in the room, but the guest service agent Martha was more than helpful getting our family the best accommodations and stay. She was so helpful in making sure it was comfortable and pleasant. Wonderful place to stay and beautiful... More

Having stayed at The Beach in July 2013 and been pleasantly surprised, my wife and I immediately thought of returning this summer. Instead of two nights, we decided to stay four nights this year. We had a studio room on the second floor with a Murphy bed. Having a balcony was a major plus over last year. The dining table... More

I agree with the rest of the reviewers. The murphy bed is a little awkward, but the room was very clean and the staff was very helpful. The views and proximity to the beach is what sold us and will have us coming back for years. We did not need to pack any chairs or umbrella for our stay. Those... More

The location of the hotel was perfect and we were having breakfast and lunch in our balcony watching the the beach; and spending part... More

There is no question that the location of The Beach on Longboat Key is spectacular, situated just steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. And, we really appreciated being able to relax on the readily available beach chairs. However, we were disappointed with the size and layout of our room. We stayed in a first-floor studio which had a... More
