We were met at the front desk by an attendant who was up his own you know what. After checking in and entering the room, I immediately saw roaches and other bugs scurrying around, running along the base of walls. Every time returning to the hotel started with an insect squishing session. The wifi was utterly pitiful and most times... More

I will NEVER stay at this hotel ever. It might sound like I'm exaggerating a bit but I am not, if I could post pictures I would. First off the rooms are grimey, they just look so gloomy. There was a light that was flickering and the room looked very gloomy. There was a dead roach on our bed and... More

It's a standard hotel no real issues. Very close to yoders (don't bother). The front desk was kind of clueless, we asked if there were any rooms with a fridge and she said no fridge in any riim but when we walked into the room a large mini fridge was there. The only major improvement I would do is the... More

I traveled from Mexico City to Sarasota,and when I arrived to this hotel I liked it. It's well located,really close to a supermarket and close to dinning places. The only problem I found was that there were roaches in my room. Breakfast is included.

My room however smelled like cigarette, my family and I thankfully had perfume and we were able to spray the room, the AC did not cool the room enough for 4 people.... More

This is a very good hotel if you are traveling for any reason to Sarasota. It right in the middle of town and close to everything. It is located right on the main thoroughfare running North and South.
