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

We stayed at The Beach on Longboat Key for 5 nights. It was a great vacation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was made service everyday. Our unit (227) was beautiful and ultra modern. The unit was spacious and had an amazing view of the gulf. I would recommend this place anyone. Also, we booked directly through the... 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

This is an amazing place, a hidden paradise !!!! there are pros and cons for this place. Lets start with the pros: we traveled during may 2014 and we took a golf view room (2nd floor). 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

We booked this sight unseen from the internet and were so pleased we wished we could have stayed longer! The kitchen in 107 is a full sized fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fully stocked with paper towels, dish towels. And all kitchen items. Beach front is beautiful and heated pool is small but just right for this size property. Bbq... More

We were there for the first week of February, it was wonderful. We had a small one bedroom #225 it was clean, and well stocked including beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. The kitchen had pans and utensils for cooking. We could sleep with the slider open and listen to the waves. The beach is very nice right out front, and... More

Our stay was for a short time, but was very pleasant. Martha, at the office, is a doll, who can't do enough for you to make your stay a great one. She is helpful, courteous, and extremely nice. No room is a bad room, as each one looks out at the Gulf of Mexico (the first floor rooms are partial... More

My wife and I spent a relaxing weekend here in a first floor, studio room with a Murphy bed. Though we had never stayed here at this particular place on Longboat Key, we were surprised over and over by the positives at The Beach. We were surprised to get a weekend room at the last minute and at a reasonable... More
