This hotel is dated and is being completely remodeled in a month. That being said all employees from front desk to maids to bartenders were excellent to our family. I was disappointed that they did not have kayaks, jet skis etc right out on beach to rent like it said in hotel description. We ended up going to crescent beach... More

Great location, friendly and helpful staff. Wake up and see the Gulf of Mexico! Watch the sunsets from the beach or balcony. Great food. Can't wait to go back. Start the day with a delicious breakfast buffet...head to the beach, grab a couple of chairs and let the relaxation begin. Bar opens at 11AM, don't hesitate to bring your favorite... More

Dated rooms [peeling paint, "flea market" chairs], horrible-unfriendly service [not even a 'thank you' after dropping over a $1000 for the stay ], no "resort" amenities, overpriced [definitely, absolutely NOT worth the $300 per night]!!!! Stay at any Marriott Residence Inn and you will get a much better VALUE!

Very unpleasant hotel. Nothing is well maintained on the property. Carpets and old and musty, landscaping is over grown, dead bird near restaurant, and as typical the wireless is slow and difficult to connect to. I am a diamond member of Hilton and am very disappointed. Pool was hot in April.....needs fresh water. Boardwalk planks are in bad condition with... More

Good, quiet, clean beach. Good service. Rooms and facilities older and dated (peeling wallpaper bad ceiling patches), but clean. Food good but overpriced. You are paying for location. Shopping and restaurants down the road 10 min. Beach not busy.

This is a decent hotel, but you might be disappointed in comparison to other Hilton properties - especially in this price range. It's on a very nice stretch of gulf beach, and that merits a higher rate, but usually that includes a nicer facility. On the plus side, the bar and restaurant staff were exceptional. Bottom line - it felt... More

This is a beautiful location but this Hilton Hotel is very outdated and needs to be re-done in every way. The beds are not comfortable. The bathroom is small and needs work. The room does not smell fresh and clean. Even the door to the patio was very hard to open and the patio needs painting. The dining room is... More

I stayed in this hotel last week. I have stayed here the last 3 years because of the quaintness and the location. They are shutting their doors for a long needed renovation. The problem is that we paid top dollar based on what we had experienced in the past. The hotel was short staffed to say the least. The front... More

Hotel being closed in 30 days. Should have closed it before I got there. Ants in room, poor cooling system, old style cooling/heating system that ran all night. Stay away, resort cost for a Motel 6 experience.

The hotel is directly on the beach, so it would be hard to complain about the location. The staff at the front desk and in the restaurant were extreme friendly. The hotel itself is in need of updates. I was surprised how run down it seemed compared to other Hilton's hotels I've stayed at. I heard a waiter saying next... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hilton Longboat Key is nestled among ancient Banyan trees on the picturesque island of Longboat Key, just off the coast of Bradenton and Sarasota. A 102-room boutique-size property, the Hilton Longboat Key is the kind of place that you come to for a relaxing vacation where you dig your toes in the powdery-white sand and sip on tropical drinks while you watch dolphins and manatees swim by. Just 8 miles South on Lido Key, the 100 shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle will satisfy the shopaholic in you, as well as your cravings for fresh seafood, frozen drinks and upscale fare. The water rules here, and there is plenty to do to become one with our island lifestyle --- you can rent jet skis and sailboats right out on our beach, or take a kayak nature tour through the mangroves on Lido Key. Our team invites you to relax and enjoy all that the Longboat Key area has to offer. ... more   less
