The hotel is very conveniently located, right off the freeway, and easy to find. The room was spacious and comfortable. The refrigerator in the room was larger than average which was very convenient for our family. The only problem I had was with the bed. It was very bouncy and every movement made by me woke up my husband and... More

Super friendly and professional front desk. Comparable to Ritz staff in terms of desire to be helpful. Whoever did the hiring here did a good job. Rooms clean, roomy, well apportioned. Beds comfortable. Lots of electrical outlets. Shower head actually good. Free breakfast really good with no lines. 3 complaints: 1) The designer who picked the dingy yellow for all... More

We've been coming to Siesta Key for many years and always stay at a motel prior to moving in, This is the best we've been to. Our room had a sitting area, a king bed, two flat screen TVs, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a very comfortable mattress. It was a little pricier than some but worth the extra money.... More

This is a completely serviceable hotel. A few things would be easy fixes, though. First, the rooms are clean but a bit smelly. The sheets cover a mattress pad that at some point must be plastic, so it feels like you are sleeping on a baby mattress. (I don't wet the bed, promise!) Very uncomfortable. There are very few toiletries;... More

Stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. Free breakfast is pretty poor but I guess that's ok because it is free. Coffee is terrible! Couldn't drink it!

After my hubby and I checked into a disgusting other big chain hotel five miles down the road, we immediately started searching for another hotel. Being that this is Christmas week, much like Mary and Joseph we kept running into "no vacancy." Trouble in paradise. For whatever reason, there was a little room left here and we jumped on it....
