The price was reasonable for March in Sarasota.....The facility is old, dating back to the '60's .....Our room appeared clean....no roaches....although I saw dead roaches in the hotel laundry facility. The complementary breakfast was standard for mid-priced hotels/motels.... Our room on the ground floor was too small for us but ample because we did not spend much time there. I... More

Do not stay here unless you want to be ripped off I was charged for a room I did not use simply because it was after 4pm when I walked in and made my reservation. Customer service no, making money yes

Hospital within walking distance PLUS reasonable hospital rate, even during high snowbird season, overcome the long-in-tooth facility. Accommodations and service were very good. Bath tub re-coating was peeling off. Glad they use duvet instead of bed spread. Refrigerator and microwave oven MIGHT be available, if requested. Motel breakfast was,...adequate. In-room coffee...ugh! Fill your in-room coffee pot in the breakfast room... More

As a business traveler, a week stay here is not to bad. It is fairly quiet and you feel fairly safe. Internet was slow at all times and booted me off line a few time each night. Cable TV, Micro and fridge were all in good working order. Bed was 50-50 on comfort. A/C worked fine but with beautiful weather... More

I have killed 2 roaches on the floor and wall and an additional 2 black ants in the bed. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! I will have to pack my bag outside by shaking every item out and inspecting it before placing it in my luggage. Some vacation.

Room was very neat and clean. Staff was very pleasant. Location was very accessible for our needs in Sarasota and Bradenton. Breakfast was very good. Internet was a little difficult to access at times.

The hotel staff was great the hotel was old and smelled. The room bedding was old and reminded me of a college room. Bathroom tubes had peeling and need to be replaced. Farther from the beach with traffic and no one could recommend a good place to eat. The staff was friendly and as helpful.
