We stayed in the Ruskin Hotel in March, 2015. I had seen on the internet that it was a Holiday Inn but apparently it was an old ad because it is locally owned now. It was a disappointment. The choices in Ruskin are very limited and I would recommend driving a little in order to avoid staying here. We had... More

There are limited choices of hotels/motels in the Ruskin area. Between three choices with similar revues and price, we chose Ruskin Inn. We could see some of the criticisms leveled and justified. Our room closet carpet was damp and musty, fresh towels not left after the room was cleaned, mediocre breakfast offerings, old stained upholstered chairs in the breakfast room.... More

The owners are extremely rude! They will wake up up and come in your room when you have the Do Not Disturb on. Did it to me twice. Pool is dirty and they treat you like they are doing you a favor by letting you pay them to stay. I'll sleep in my car before going back.

This place had what we needed on short notice. Clean comfortable beds, pet friendly, felt safe. Carpets were dirty & musty and the place was a bit run down. Breakfast was just ok. Night staff just ok. Would stay again if had to.

What can I say about Ruskin? This little hotel was formerly a Holiday Inn. It's no wonder they lost their franchise. It's musty, dirty, and not nearly worth the money. Not to mention the complimentary breakfast was still frozen. No thanks!

After not being able to find a hotel, that accepts pets near Lido Key, on short notice on a Saturday night, we stumbled upon the Ruskin Inn. Check in was quick and the desk clerk was personable. This is a nice hotel at a reasonable price. It was clean. We had a good experience at this hotel.

Lobby was modest but ok. My prepaid reservation couldn't be found - took about 15 minutes to check in! Desk clerk not very personable. Rooms were not bad. Beds were clean and comfortable. Furnishings not bad. Bathroom kind if nice. HOWEVER! Carpet could have been cleaner. Pool fix not look inviting. Refrigerator had a dead bug in it as well... More

I looked over the other reviews and thought I would give it a shot. Bad idea. This is like a Motel 6 from the '70s or maybe not even that good. The smells in the motel are horrible and I was coughing after 10 minutes. I tried to check out and they said my credit card had already been charged... More

I hadn't stayed here since the 1990's when it was a Holiday Inn Express and brand new. I really wasn't expecting that much but was pleasantly surprised. The staff was awesome and the room was very comfortable and quiet. Might want to update the TVs but who goes to Florida to watch TV?
