Would not stay again. Was musty smelling their was roaches in the room and I couldn't wait to leave. Not a lot of choice for breakfast. Did not even have bread for toast. Would not recommend it to anyone. And as far as I am concerned I paid to much for the room.

Stayed for 1 night while travelling through Florida, the room was spacious though bathroom was small but very clean, low budget so happy with what we got free breakfast included. We didn't know the area but it as ok but if you want to be near the. Beach then this hotel is about a 5-10 minute drive away.

Stayed here out of desperation, having changed travel plans. I have found that trying to book a room in Florida during the winter months at the last minute is not a good idea. The place served the purpose as a place to spend one night while traveling. The property is old and dingy. I've stayed in cleaner places. The breakfast... More

It was ok for one night, but the room wasn't really clean and it smelled a bit. I think the price is to high! The location is quite positive, it's near the city center! We could walk there without a problem.

After a long day traveling, we were counting on this reservation to catch some much needed shut-eye. It was already too late to find vacancy anywhere else and we had no other options. Thankfully, the mini fridge was large enough to accommodate the beers we needed to get us drunk enough to sleep here, with the bugs. Cobwebs in the... More

There were mosquitoes flying all around in the room....I asked the front lady Kim for help and all she had was raid to offer... Not a good option for an asthmatic child... Would never recommend this place to anyone.

This hotel was very dirty. Ice bucket had pubic hair. Mold in bathroom, hair on floor, and smelled very bad. Wi-Fi worked in the hall way, but not in room. Door access to hotel was broken so anyone could walk in. Noisy, front desk person Kim very rude. Booked through Priceline, and KIM lied to them. Very dirty phone and... More

This hotel is centrally located just south of the US 41 and US 301 split. The sheets and pillows are clean but the overall cleanliness of the room is lacking. There were cobwebs in the corners at the ceiling, the walls are marked up and the ceiling repairs are obvious. The ceiling in the shower was blistered. Good water preasure.... More

Service was unbeatable! Very friendly. Hotel is unique and was very clean. Non smoking room had no smell from years ago smokers. :) Was built as a hurricane shelter originally and some or all rooms have been totally renivated. Publix right across the street, which was nice for cooler stocking. WiFi wasn't very good though. Also, the continental breakfast could... More

This is an old two building complex near downtown Sarasota around six blocks away from Main Street that has many small restaurants and shops. The non-smoking room was clean, the bed comfortable, the shower worked and the TV was a modern flat screen, but required two remotes to operate it. The room had a fridge and a microwave, but no...
