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

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This is a beautiful location but this Hilton Hotel is very outdated and needs to be re-done in every way.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

Dirty pool, sagging walk ways but a beautiful beach. We asked for an early check in which was never recorded and the staff was unaccomadating. Rooms were clean and modern but very pricey for what we got.

We enjoyed this hotel. The restaurant staff was extremely accommodating and pleasant. The room was nice and the beach and pool were great. both the check-in and check-out clerks at the reception desk were curt and unpleasant which is the only thing keeping me from rating this facility as excellent.

This hotel has an excellent location, friendly staff and overall excellent service. We have been staying here on our trips to Sarasota repeatedly. We know it will close for renovations and hope to come back when the hotel reopens.

My wife and I stayed at the Hilton one night. We were upgraded to a gulf front room with a very nice view and easy access to the beach. The room had a balcony with a good view. The Hilton is an older hotel in need of a facelift. Examples include peeling wall paper in the room, bunched up carpeting... More

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
