This hotel is definitely nothing special, but it was incredibly affordable and convenient. The breakfast is small, but it's free! The staff was friendly as well. If you're looking for a clean, cheap place to stay in Sarasota, this is it!

We live near Sarasota but we were attending a show at the Van Wezel and we wanted to be able to relax have some dinner and some cocktails and not have to worry about the drive home. Hotels close to the Van Wezel were either booked or their rates were in the astronomical range. (Florida in season) Based on some... More

This is an old hotel. The room we had was upstairs at the top of the steps. The bed was comfortable but you are right on the road and it was noisy all night. I believe this is run by a family. Based on that I would say that the mother and the son that were in the office in... More

Extended our overnight stay to four nights. This property is extremely well managed by a very friendly husband and wife. The manager is "hands on" and on site 24 hrs.. The property is an older motel that has been well maintained. The king bed room was large with an additional sofa, 2 chairs with table, dresser, etc. Although somewhat dated... More

Stayed two nights and needed an affordable place and this fit the bill. Clean, nice staff, and modest items for breakfast were pluses. Small refrigerator and microwave shows their attention to detail. TV even had the golf channel. General manager was very cooperative and they aim to make their guests satisfied.

I am very disappointed then also surprised by the relatively good rating of this place. Let me summarize simply: Negative - room has a smell and does not seem clean. See my pictures. - staff very unfriendly - the breakfast is a joke, there is no table in the small lobby, you need to collect the extremely basic breakfast, then... More

This hotel represents value in that it provides above average accommodations at a moderate price. If you can survive with standard-definition television, outside door entry and a minimal free breakfast, this is your place. The lodging is situated right across the street from The RIngling, which is worthy of a full-day visit. Free breakfast is basic with two cereal options,... More

We were in town one night to visit family. All the "better" hotels were either full or over priced. We just wanted a place to relax for a few hours, sleep and shower. It is an older hotel but not bad. The lady at the front desk, possibly the owners wife, was very welcoming and attentive. She even asked someone... More
